Choi “BalKhan” Hyun-jin – Bombers (Jungle)

BalKhan, your jungling. Woof.

I mean, this guy started out the day with two atrocious performances. First, he went 1/6/4 on Hecarim (forcing him to build Cinderhulk into Righteous Glory, which undoubtedly made Oddie and his Warrior into TriForce build cackle with glee) and then went 2/7/8 on Camille.

I don’t care that the guy turned it around with a couple of not-awful games on Jarvan IV. He had the lowest KDA, worst kill participation, lowest gold per minute, and averaged almost a 700 XP deficit at 15 minutes. He was the worst performing jungler today by a wide margin.

Fabián “Warangelus” Esteban Llanos Bernal – Isurus Gaming (ADC)

I’m really surprised that Warangelus isn’t getting as much grief as some other players for his atrocious play today. I mean, he got absolutely clobbered by BigKoro on Ezreal, going 1/6/0. I know he had two decent games against 1907 Fenerbahce, but he went up against another terrible ADC in Hades.

He ranked lowest among ADCs in play today in terms of gold per minute and average damage per minute by a sizeable margin. Once other teams figure out that they just need to push him off his pocket Varus pick, Warangelus is going to be easy money for the other team.

Volkan “Hades” Dinçer – 1907 Fenerbahçe (ADC)

Along with Kim “Ruin” Hyeong-min, Hades is one of the big reasons that Fenerbahce is sitting at 2-2. He had some truly questionable decisions in their two losses. Although his stat lines in those games weren’t terrible, they weren’t great in the wins – save for the Draven game where everyone but Ruin basically popped off.

Simply put, I think Hades was a big reason for the games they lost, but not necessarily a big reason for the games they won. Was he absolutely garbage like Warangelus and BalKhan were? No, but he definitely needs to step his game up tomorrow.
