Could not be stopped in a series sweep
November 19, 2017
Paparazi destroyed everything in his path as Vici Gaming defeated Vega Squadron 2-0 in the Group Stages of Perfect World Masters. Paparazi finished the series with a 20/4/19 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Paparazi set the tone for the series early as he was an absolute force. He grabbed a game-high 16 kills on the Game 1 win and truly carried his whole team to a win. With a more balanced team effort in Game 2, he still found 13 kills as Vici was in control the entire time. Vici's hopes run through Paparazi, and this series was an example of how well that can work.

LaNm and Paparazi was the deadly duo as LaNm racked up a ridiculous 39 assists in the two-game series, most of which came from Paparazi kills.

ANALYSIS
Paparazi may have made the headlines for most kills, but Ori had an amazing showing in his own right. Ori was second on the team with 16 kills, shining on Death Prophet across both games. Ori really had a perfect series, not being phased by anything that Vega did to try to come from behind. Death Prophet seems to be a comfort pick for Ori, as all of Vici looked comfy in this win.

ANALYSIS
Vici was truly firing on all cylinders in this match. Vega hung in early, but the end result was never in doubt. eLeVeN especially shine don Brewmaster in Vici's dominant Game 1 was set the tone for the rest of the series. Look for all of Vici to carry this momentum into Day 2.

November 19, 2017
CeMaTheSlayeR had a very disappointing series as Vega Squadron lost 2-0 to Vici Gaming in the Group Stages of Perfect World Masters. CeMaTheSlayeR finished the series with a 0/14/15 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Never finding a kill in the two-game series, CeMa struggled throughout. He was outmatched by his Vici counterpart and just seemed to be a step behind the entire series. Going Clockwerk to Undying, he was never comfortable, and it ended with him having 14 deaths next to 15 assists. We can chalk this one up as an awful series for Vega and hope they can bounce back.
Was not able to do much in a loss
November 19, 2017
G didn't do anything special as Vega Squadron lost 2-0 to Vici Gaming in the Group Stages of Perfect World Masters. G finished the series with an 8/5/7 KDA.
ANALYSIS
G had one of the more respectable efforts out of anybody on Vega Squadron. Finishing as the only player with more kills than deaths, G didn't look like he felt outmatched by Vici. There will not really be much positive to note from this game, however, as Vega would like to forget it quickly and prepare for Day 2.
Came up on the wrong end of fights
November 19, 2017
ALOHADANCE went down swinging as Vega Squadron lost 2-0 to Vici Gaming in the Group Stages of Perfect World Masters. ALOHADANCE finished the series with a 7/12/7 KDA.
ANALYSIS
ALOHADANCE may have went down, but he didn't do so without a fight. Vici was clearly the better team, but ALOHA gave it absolutely everything he had as he brawled with Vici the best he could on both Lifestealer and Slardar. However, he came up short every fight as he only found seven kills to his 12 deaths.
Neutralized in a pretty decisive loss
November 19, 2017
Afterlife was taken out of the game as Vega Squadron lost 2-0 to Vici Gaming in the Group Stages of Perfect World Masters. Afterlife finished the series with a 4/9/8 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Afterlife was made into an afterthought with how Vici was playing in this game. They were firing on all cylinders, being a step ahead of Vega throughout the entire game. Afterlife couldn't do much as he was forced to watch Vici run through him and his teammates. Vega will look to bounce back in a major way.
Benched after weeks of underperforming
November 8, 2017
In a release on its website today, Fnatic announced that Xcalibur would be moved to the substitute position and replaced by Abed.
ANALYSIS
Xcalibur joined Fnatic before the start of the 2017/2018 competition season, shortly after The International 7. During that time, the team failed to qualify for any Major or Minor event. Fnatic did play at both the ESL Hamburg Major and DotaPit Minor, but only because qualified teams had to withdraw. Xcalibur stood out as a clear under-performer consistently, making this roster move not much of a surprise.
Signs with Fnatic
November 8, 2017
In a release on its website today, Fnatic announced that Abed would be joining the team in place of Xcalibur.
ANALYSIS
This move comes after several disappointing weeks of failing to qualify for events and performing poorly at events the team could attend. Abed most recently played for Digital Chaos, and was arguably the best player on the team. His addition to Fnatic brings a lot of potential to the team, but competition is still extremely tense in the SEA region.
Played good mind games for his team
November 4, 2017
Ramzes had a solid series for Virtus.pro as they eliminate SG Esports in Dota Pit. The young carry finished with a KDA of 6/2/17.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes played the Lifestealer in the lone game of the series. His comfort in the hero showed since despite losing early he knew how to buckle down and still find the farm. He often baited SG esports with his insane Armlet toggling which really swung the game in VP's favor.
Classic combo works wonders for VP
November 4, 2017
No[o]ne dominated the midlane with ease in Virtus.pro's win over SG Esports in Dota Pit. The mid laner finished with a KDA of 16/3/12.
ANALYSIS
No[o]ne's Mirana in the midlane completely outplayed 4dr's Leshrac. Thanks to the classic Bane Nightmare into Sacred Arrow combo, no[o]ne easily took control of the game. He racked up a game-high 16 kills and his Sacred Arrows were hitting impossible shots even without any setups in the mid-game.
Utilized the Beastmaster buffs well
November 4, 2017
9pasha had a solid series for Virtus.pro as they eliminate SG Esports in Dota Pit. The consistent offlaner finished with a KDA of 5/4/14.
ANALYSIS
9pasha was on the Beastmaster in the sole game of the series. With the array of buffs the hero received, it was fitting to see him return to the competitive scene. No one came out on top in his matchup against Sand King early on. But when he finally got the extra vision from his Hawk and rotations from his team, he finally started to shine. He got a 21-minute Level 3 Necronomicon and helped his team steamroll to the finish line.
Agressive rotations paid off
November 4, 2017
Lil completely dictated the tempo of Virtus.pro's win over SG Esports in Dota Pit. The roaming support finished with a KDA of 2/3/16.
ANALYSIS
Lil was on Slardar in the only game of the match-up. He rotated aggressively with Solo and helped rack up many early kills for his team. He fully utilized the 700 movement speed buff on the hero along the river and he was just everywhere for VP. His 17-minute Blink Dagger was also a pretty good timing for someone who never really buckled down and farmed.
