Scout finished with a KDA of 7/10/8 as EDG were taken down by RNG on Saturday.

Scout went with a mid lane Karma pick in response to the LeBlanc from Xiaohu, and failed to make an impact on the supposed counter pick. His lone kill came at five minutes in, and he wasn't even necessary for it, as Fireloli did all of the work. He ended 1/3/0 in the loss. Scout's Ryze looked better in Game 2, since his team was dominating, but even then, he only participated in a single kill until the final three minutes of the game. From there, it was all downhill, as despite finding early kills in both games, neither Scout's Jayce in Game 3 nor his Ryze in Game 4 did much of anything to stop RNG from taking the series.

Scout finished EDward Gaming's 3-0 sweep of Newbee in the quarterfinals of the LPL Spring Playoffs with a 7/7/33 KDA.

Scout was a fiend with Orianna in the mid lane during Game 1. He had a big CS lead from the start, but that's not where he made most of his impact. His Shockwaves were what gave EDG the edge in the teamfights they used to pick up this win. They were always on point to pick up wins across the map and lock up the win. Scout was on the rarely seen Karma mid lane in Game 2 and was very strong. He picked on Coco's Talon all game long to keep himself ahead the whole time. He also added in a ton of assists to keep his team rolling to a 2-0 lead. He switched over to Taliyah for the final game and was incredibly strong with the champion. He didn't exactly pour on the kills, but he did pick up a couple early ones that led to a sizable lead in the mid lane for him. He was a constant presence in every teamfight, using all of his champion's kit to shut down Newbee at every turn. He picked up MVP honors and helped his team secure the 3-0 sweep to move on to the semifinals.

Scout earned a 11/4/22 KDA in EDward Gaming's series victory against QG Reapers on Sunday.

In Game 1, Scout had a solid laning phase on LeBlanc as he built a small lead in CS. He didn't join in teamfighting in the first half, but was superb in the second half to earn a 7/0/7 KDA. Scout got Leblanc again in Game 2 and had another slow start with a decent mid game. He continued to deal out the damage late, but it wasn't enough as he traded deaths for assists late. In Game 3, Scout went with Jayce and put together a 1/1/8 KDA performance. He used Jayce's range to his advantage and dumped Shock Blasts into skirmishes on his way to leading EDG in damage dealt to champions. EDG quickly closed out the series after a Baron kill 21 minutes in.

Scout ended Friday's sweep of VG with a 8/1/11 combined KDA.

Scout finished Game 1 with a 1/0/6 KDA as Ryze. He had an assist during a four-man dive onto Easyhoon, two assists in the first teamfight and a kill and three assists in the final teamfight. Scout helped carry Game 2, ending with a 7/1/5 KDA as Taliyah. He picked up first blood during a four-man dive onto XuanXuanPi and a kill and an assist picking off Bengi and Caveman in the mid game. He solo killed Bengi for his third kill, had a kill and three assists in the first teamfight, a kill in the second teamfight and two kills in the final teamfight to end the series.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout scored a 6/15/20 in EDG's 1-2 series loss to I May on Friday.

Scout roamed early on Zed in Game 1 as he participated in the first four kills for EDG. He overreached during the mid game, but pulled it together late to help EDG win teamfights and close out a win. In Game 2 Scout was on Oriana against a Vladimir and it worked out well early as he assisted in EDG's first four kills. However, he couldn't kite out and carry the late game teamfights as EDG was overwhelmed and dropped Game 2 16 kills to six advantage. In Game 3 Scout got taken down early and often as he got camped by I May's jungler. Despite being on Taliyah, a champion with great roaming capabilities, Scout couldn't match the pressure the the I May's midlane Fizz was putting out. Most of the time when Scout used Weaver's Wall it was in attempt to disengage fights. Scout finished with a lowly 0/6/2 KDA in Game 3 as EDG lost the series.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout ended Friday's win over GT with a 11/10/28 combined KDA.

Using Azir in Game 1, Scout ended with a 1/6/4 KDA. He picked up an assist taking out Republic in the mid game and an assist in the second teamfight. Scout grabbed a kill and two assists in the fourth teamfight of the game, but it wasn't enough as EDG dropped a surprising Game 1. Scout picked up Syndra for Game 2 to finish with a 6/0/14 KDA. He grabbed an assist during a 2-vs-2 fight in the mid lane and a kill and assist diving the bottom lane. He picked up a kill and two assists in the first teamfight and two assists in the second teamfight to help give EDG the lead. A kill and three assists in the third teamfight and a double kill and three assists in the final teamfight allowed EDG to force a Game 3. In said Game 3, Scout used Syndra again to finish with a 4/4/10 KDA. He picked up an assist taking out Savoki in the mid game and solo killed Wushuang for his first kill in the mid game. Scout grabbed two assists in the first teamfight and a kill in the second teamfight. His two assists in the third teamfight and a kill in the fourth teamfight gave EDG the lead, with a kill in the fifth teamfight and three assists in the final teamfight closing out the series for EDG.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout ended EDG's sweep of VG with a 12/5/12 combined KDA.

Scout helped carry EDG to a Game 1 win on Syndra, finishing with a 6/2/4 KDA. He secured first blood by taking out Easyhoon in the mid lane with help from Fireloli. He grabbed his second kill picking off Easyhoon a second time in the mid game and grabbed a double kill and two assists in the second teamfight of the game after EDG secured Baron. A kill and two assists in the final teamfight allowed EDG to close out the game. In Game 2, Scout used Ryze and ended with a 6/3/8 KDA. He picked up a kill and an assist during an early roam to the bottom lane and a second kill and assist moments later during a four-man dive that essentially won the game for EDG. He grabbed assists on the sixth and seventh EDG kills and an assist in the second teamfight of the game. Scout scaled well, picking up a kill and an assist in the third teamfight, a kill in the fourth teamfight, and a double kill in the final teamfight to finish with a series-high 12 kills.

October 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout ended EDG's loss to the ROX Tigers with an 11/14/14 KDA.

For Games 1 and 2, Scout took Ryze into Kuro's Aurelion Sol. Unfortunately, while this pick did allow him to outfarm his opponent, it simply couldn't compare in terms of map presence. While Kuro spent these first two games nabbing kills and assists in both side lanes, Scout barely managed to participate in half his team's kills, and created no openings for his team. In Game 3, Scout decided to take the Aurelion Sol for himself, and while he didn't have quite as immaculate a performance as Kuro had, he still managed to make strong roaming plays and pick up numerous kills for his team, keeping them in the series with a victory. Unfortunately, there just wasn't much that Scout's Jayce could do in Game 4 to stop Peanut's rampaging Olaf. He managed to deal a solid amount of damage and pick up one of EDG's three kills, but it wasn't anywhere near enough to grab a victory.

October 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout earned Player of the Game with his impressive performance on Syndra, racking up a 12/1/8 KDA.

Scout went absolutely huge on Syndra in this game, grabbing whatever lead he could and snowballing it. He hit level six first out of anyone in the game and promptly put it to good use by going down to gank the bottom lane with Clearlove. This endeavor garnered them two kills and first turret. Scout was on fire for the rest of the match and even managed to pick up a quadra kill in a teamfight under one of INTZ's turrets, although he was shut down by Tockers' Vladimir soon after. Scout blew away any opposition whatsoever and carried EDG to victory.

October 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout played well against H2K on Sunday, earning a KDA of 1/0/5.

While EDG had struggled in their previous group stage matches, Scout's Syndra helped EDG take control early in the game. Finding a kill on Jankos at eight minutes, Scout started to snowball, pressuring EDG's side waves extremely well. While Ryu's Vladimir was an effective lane counter to Scout, Ryu couldn't match the crowd control and burst that Scout brought to skirmishes across the map. Finishing with a game-high 374 CS, Scout imposed his will on H2K, finishing with a 1/0/5 KDA in the methodical EDG win.

August 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout died just once in each game, finishing the series win with a 8/2/14 KDA.

In Game 1, Scout took Syndra into the mid lane against TANK's Viktor, leading to a pretty quiet lane. Even though Scout was a frequent focus target during teamfights, he managed to use his orbs wisely and blow up his attackers before they could reach him. Scout finished the game 5/1/3, playing extremely well behind EDG's strong frontline. In Game 2, Scout switched his pick to Taliyah, leading to a Twisted Fate pick from TANK. Scout looked great on the stoneweaver, using his walls to isolate members of Snake and create cleaner openings for Clearlove's Hecarim to charge in and tear apart the opposition. In general, Scout didn't have as noteworthy a series as Clearlove or Deft, but you can't argue with the statistics he put in supporting those two all-star performances.

August 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout got the better end of the mid lane matchup in EDG's win over Invictus, finishing 14/6/9.

Scout and Rookie both saved their picks for the very end of each draft, resulting in a pair of pick-vs.-counterpick lanes. In Game 1, Scout took Viktor to try and outpush Rookie's Malzahar and fell behind early due to some jungle pressure from Kid's Elise. Scout came back with a vengeance, though, farming his way into the late game and using his burst damage to clean up the wreckage left behind by the AoE from Mouse's Gangplank. In Game 2, Scout picked Taliyah for the mid lane, leading to a Syndra pick from Rookie in response. Scout controlled this lane from the start, using his space control and utility to both control Invictus' positioning in teamfights and blow them up whenever they stepped out of line.

July 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout tore through the opposition in short order, finishing with a 17/3/12 KDA.

Scout looked like a man on fire against Game Talents, racking up the stats in a dominating performance. In Game 1, Scout took Viktor up against republiC's Azir and thoroughly outplayed his opponent, even beating him in a 1-vs-1 duel in lane. Scout then carried his dominance into teamfights, using his lane lead to hit critical mass on Viktor while Game Talents were still struggling to get started. In Game 2, neither team banned Malzahar, leading to a bit of pick chicken where neither Scout nor republiC would commit to taking the highly contested mage. Instead, Scout ended up with LeBlanc and republiC took an unconventional Syndra pick. republiC played decently this game, but Scout was out of his mind, going 11/2/8 with 73 percent kill participation. Even though PawN is the EDG mid laner best known for playing assassins, Scout showed in this series that he can play those champions as well when necessary.

July 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout didn't do much innovating, but he got the job done with a 17/10/13 KDA against NewBee.

Scout stuck to Viktor throughout the series against NewBee and looked solid throughout. In Game 1, Scout faced off against Dade's Twisted Fate and played a fairly even lane, with both of them picking up kills as teamfights began in full. NewBee started this game off with a fairly large lead, but Scout's wave clear and late game scaling on Viktor were enough to stall out NewBee's aggression and give Deft enough time to get his Sivir fully operational. In Game 2, Scout went back to Viktor again, this time against Dade's Veigar. After the very long Game 1, NewBee came out deflated in Game 2, and Deft's Sivir and Clearlove's Kindred were able to fire their way through most of NewBee's defenses. Scout didn't look quite as strong in Game 2, but it was plenty enough for EDG to pull out the win.

July 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout sparked a big comeback for EDG, finishing the series 7/2/13.

Scout may not have played Game 1, but his performances in Games 2 and 3 were enough to push EDG into a series win over LGD. Even though PawN had performed admirably on Ekko in Game 1, Scout came in for Game 2 to take Azir into the mid lane. With a little help from Clearlove's Gragas, Scout was able to develop into a murderous teamfight threat, ending the game at 4/1/8 and helping EDG stomp their way to victory. In Game 3, with LGD using a ban on Ashe to try and stop Deft, Scout was able to pick up Vladimir in the mid lane against punished's Viktor. Scout looked incredible on the champion, nabbing a solo kill in lane and then consistently diving LGD's back line to disrupt Imp's Kog'Maw during teamfights. Scout finished this game 3/1/5, but his ability to fly past the protections of LGD and blow up their hypercarry was a bigger impact than his numbers might suggest.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout ended with a 12/0/13 KDA during EDG's victory over WE.

Scout had an easy enough series, as Xiye simply lacked the ability or the opportunity to take the lane for himself. Scout piloted LeBlanc to an easy win in Game 1, as Xiye's Malzahar counter proved to be far from effective, and an early gank from Clearlove ensured that Scout had control of the lane whenever he wanted it. Together with Clearlove, he controlled the mid game fights, as the two of them together could instantly kill any target without even skipping a beat. Game 2 he had an even easier time, as a cheeky teleport behind WE's bottom lane at level 3 netted Scout a kill and set WE even further behind. The kill ensured that he had the upper hand against Xiye's Vladimir, which was already disadvantaged against Scout's Karma to begin with. With a huge ADC to buff up in Deft and no potent threat on the side of WE, Scout took the series with relative ease.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout finished EDG's series win over OMG with a 10/5/24 KDA.

Scout's series against OMG was fraught with difficulty, but by the end, he and his squad came out on top. In Game 1, Scout took his Viktor up against Icon's Ekko, and was able to withstand an early game deficit to eventually become a huge source of teamfight damage. In Game 2, Scout switched to Lissandra and looked rather less impressive. As OMG got off to a big lead, Scout was unable to make the kind of pick initiations that Lissandra needs to be effective, and instead found himself using his ult defensively as the rest of his team ran away from bad engagements. In Game 2, Scout switched it up again and took Twisted Fate up against Icon's Lissandra, leaving Icon and OMG to suffer the same fate he had experienced in the last game. The devastating combination of Scout's stunning cards and Clearlove's explosive damage on Kha'Zix let EDG completely run away with the game and the match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout ended wit a 7/8/12 KDA during EDG's victory over RNG.

While no one would say that Scout looked to be the stronger of the two mid laners who showed up for this featured match, he was the one who took the victory. Much of that may well be attributed to RNG's utter lack of respect for him and his ability to effect the map, as he was given the nearly unmatched Ryze in two of the three games of the series; amusingly those were both the games that EDG won, in large part because the Ryze pick neutralized Xiaohu's skill advantage. While Xiaohu constantly pressured him out of lane, the Teleport that Ryze naturally runs ensured that he didn't fall behind on CS, and the potent scaling of the Rogue Mage ensured that even if he was a bit behind, his impact would still be felt in fights. And indeed it was, as he time and again shredded the first thing he could get his hands on. That was an easy task in Game 1, especially, as RNG had little crowd control to disrupt him, though in Game 3 he found his efforts often frustrated by Unbreakable from Mata. Game 2 was a whole other beast, however, as mlxg decided to go God Mode all over the map, and Scout found himself getting tower dove on his famed Azir far, far before he was ready for such a thing. Combined with the enormous CS advantage that Xiaohu accumulated, that lack of pressure translated into a Game 2 that was the most one-sided game of the series. Still, his performance in the games that mattered was strong, though hard to objectively rate. If there's anything that we've learned in the last few months, it's that anyone is capable of making Ryze look amazing, and whether Scout will be able to stand up to someone of Xiaohu's skill without a crutch champion will be something we'll look to see in the next time these two teams meet.

May 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout earned a 10/4/10 KDA in EDG's series win over Snake.

Despite being matched up against TANK's Azir with his own Viktor and falling behind in CS, he helped build a small lead in terms of level over the Snake mid laner. Scout did take down the first tower in this lane before TANK did, though, which started to give him a good lead just before the late game hit. Scout was able to do more when it came to teamfights, which is what really gave him the edge over TANK in this game. Scout was able to take Azir for himself in Game 2 and he picked up the first two kills for EDG when he eliminated Ella and Flandre, who dived pretty hard on the bot lane turret in a quick teamfight. While he did hold a good lead in his lane for the majority of this game, he got taken out in a 2-for-3 in favor of Snake that set EDG back by a bit. Other than that one blemish, he was very strong in his lane. His crucial Emperor's Divides in this game really set the tone in teamfight after teamfight.

May 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Scout earned a 13/11/17 KDA in his debut victory against Newbee.

In easily the most surprising off-season announcement of the LPL, EDG announced that Scout would be taking over the starter position for PawN, at least for the time being. This game would be the first time he'd taken to the rift since his disastrous first game with SKT that ensured that he would be warming the bench for all of Spring. His showing in this series was the first step towards being accepted by EDG's notoriously performance-oriented fan base. While he certainly didn't hard-carry the team by any stretch -- that honor fell on Clearlove, to the surprise of few -- he proved to a more than serviceable replacement for PawN, and even had an excellent Game 1 Azir performance that drew bans from Newbee for the rest of the series. This last point in particular is relevant, as LPL has always been hard-pressed for skilled Azir players, and PawN himself has never really taken to the champion well. His proficiency on Azir, as well his functionality on the other picks that EDG saddled him with, may well make Scout a more valuable commodity than initially expected. He may yet make a major mark on the LPL, especially with a standout jungler like Clearlove to back him up. Still, expectations should remain realistic, as he has yet to be tested against the likes of Xiaohu, and it's as of yet unclear as to whether Dade will prove to be a relevant competitor in this split.

March 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

In a surprising move, EDG announced that they had acquired Scout from the defending World Champions, SKT T1.

Ever since his competitive career started, Scout has served one purpose: Scrim partner for whoever SKT T1 was starting. His only competitive game thus far ended in an ignominious defeat, leaving doubts as to how effective he would prove on stage. Rumors are, though, that EDG have been unhappy with their current mid substitute, Athena, and were looking to replace him moving into next split due to his own poor record. EDG has always prioritized having an effective mid substitute, as PawN's health is notoriously fragile. While the transfer rules ensure that Scout won't be taking to the Rift this split, the offseason may well position him to be the primary substitute moving forward.
