Have Your Say: Viktor

Despite a Summer 2015 win/loss record of 135-171 (44%), an unimpressive tally, Viktor seems to keep topping analysts’ lists of top-tier mid lane champions. Why is Viktor so highly valued in pro play, despite his poor record? What are the reasons behind that record?

NA Playoffs: TiP vs CLG Statistical Talking Points

I put together the following statistical talking points as preparation for the Semifinal matchup between Team Impulse (TiP) and Counter Logic Gaming (CLG), which was played earlier today. Even though the games have been played, I figured these stats might still be of interest to some people, so here they are! (Note: I have a similar document for TSM vs. Team Liquid, which I will probably post up soon, as well.)

A few of these stats showed up on the actual broadcast today. Bonus points to anyone who caught them live!
