Shut down after a perfect group stage
March 9, 2018
Misery had a rough series other than Game 2 in a 1-2 loss to Liquid at PGL Bucharest. He finished with an overall KDA of 4/12/25.
In Game 1 Misery played Bounty Hunter. Prior to this game, Misery had won an impressive seven games in a row on his Bounty Hunter, but Liquid would put a stop to this streak. Misery played a good game, killing couriers and trying to set up for track kills, but Liquid did too good a job grouping up and playing around him. Misery finished with a 0/6/6 KDA. In Game 2 Misery played Chen, dominating Liquid from start to finish in a shutout victory for EG. His early lane pressure sent Liquid into a downward spiral that they couldn't recover from, while boosting his teammates up to incredible heights. Misery finished with a 2/0/13 KDA. In Game 3 Misery played Keeper of the Light. He got a pretty quick Aghanim's Scepter, but this would prove to be too little too late to really stop Liquid. He finished with a 2/6/6 KDA.
Effective, but not pretty
March 8, 2018
Misery did all he could as Evil Geniuses defeated Team Liquid 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. Misery finished with a 3/14/20 KDA.
The final statline of the new EG captain made it seem as if he was pretty ineffective. He tied for the team lead in deaths and had the lowest kill participation of the team. However, Misery was effective in many other ways, as he led the team in objectives and ended up with the second-highest net worth on his team. As captain, Misery's best work isn't reflected on any box score, with the win being the only thing that matters.
Katowice run ended for the new captain
February 24, 2018
Misery was not able to lead his team as Evil Geniuses lost to Virtus.pro 2-1 in the quarterfinals of ESL One Katowice, finishing with a 3/17/22 KDA.
Still settling into his role as Captain of the talented EG team, Misery had trouble navigating his team through this series. VP did not give Misery and EG many options as they completely dominated, even though EG managed to steal a single game. VP was the better team today and EG seemed to never stand a chance. Misery should be very proud of his performance so far on EG as they have been able to make multiple deep tournament runs in the last couple months. Making it to the quarterfinals of a tournament this large may be the best accomplishment yet as EG was forced to come up through the loser's bracket.
Unimpressive game from Evil Geniuses' captain
February 20, 2018
Misery finished with a 0/5/6 KDA in a one-sided loss to LGD at ESL One Katowice.
Although he was able to position himself well to cast his spells in fights, Misery wasn't as effective as EG needed him to be at stopping the LGD push. Most of his damage was simply healed or regenerated through.
Knocked back down to Earth after a successful tournament run
January 27, 2018
Misery finished with an overall KDA of 1/16/4 in a very one-sided 2-0 loss to Liquid at ESL One Genting.
Misery started the series off with a Chen game, but it was not very successful at all. He didn't get much done in the critical early game, and once that plan fell through there was no way for Misery to pull himself back into the game. He finished with a 0/4/1 KDA. Misery played Bane in Game 2, but didn't manage to get much more going than he did in Game 1. His attempts to pressure lanes completely backfired, feeding kills to Liquid's cores and getting himself killed. Misery finished with a 1/12/3 KDA.
EG's captain settling into his new home
January 26, 2018
Misery finished with a 6/16/25 overall KDA in a commanding 2-0 win over Virtus.pro at ESL One Genting.
In Game 1 Misery played Pudge. Despite leading the server in deaths, Misery was very effective in this game. All Pudge needs to do is hit those big Meat Hooks, and Misery delivered constantly throughout the game for EG. He finished with a 6/11/11 KDA. In Game 2 Misery played Bounty Hunter. This is one of Misery's most played heroes, and his comfort on it really showed in this game. His movement around the map was excellent, making life miserable for Virtus.pro all game. He finished with a 0/5/14 KDA.
Evil Geniuses' new captain still dealing with growing pains
January 23, 2018
Misery finished with a 2/5/5 KDA in a loss to Na'Vi at ESL One Genting.
Despite finishing with a relatively decent 2/5/5 KDA, this is not a good indicator for how lopsided this game was against EG. Misery was able to keep himself alive with good positioning thanks to his spells' long range, but the rest of EG wasn't so lucky.
Eliminated from Captain's Draft by Team Secret
January 5, 2018
Misery struggled in a 1-2 loss to Team Secret at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 4/22/32.
Misery had a rough game on Bounty Hunter to start the series. He did provide his team with a lot of excellent vision, but paid for it dearly with a lot of deaths that didn't help things at all. He finished with a 0/8/6 KDA, dying often and early in fights. Misery managed to turn things around for himself in Game 2, taking Warlock this time. His positioning was much better, and he was able to have huge impact with his spells in every fight. He finished with a 0/3/13 KDA. In Game 3 Misery played Shadow Shaman. This was another tough game for Misery, although to his credit he did everything he could to succeed in this game. There was too much burst on Secret's side for him to have any hope of surviving late-game engagements. He finished with a 4/11/13 KDA.
Disappointed in his EG debut
January 4, 2018
Misery came up short in his first EG game as Evil Geniuses lost to CompLexity Gaming in the Group Stages of Captain's Draft 4. Misery finished with a 0/8/3 KDA.
All eyes were on Misery as he was making his debut as captain on the new-look Evil Geniuses team. Well, all the eyes that were watching were pretty disappointed in this one. Playing Nyx Assassin, Misery led EG in deaths with eight as he played a large role in the throwing of the lead. Hopefully it was just nerves, and he'll be able to bounce back.
Rough game for EG's new captain
January 4, 2018
Misery finished a rough win vs Pain Gaming with a 0/8/9 KDA.
Misery had a very rough time on Bane, but his deaths usually served to either save a teammate or make a lot of space for them to farm or fight. To his credit, Misery was able to get off a lot of clutch spells right before his deaths.
Joins Evil Geniuses to fill out roster
December 20, 2017
Evil Geniuses announced today on its website that Misery would be joining the team as its newest member, replacing Universe.
Misery will not be taking the off-lane role left vacant by Universe, instead Misery will join Cr1t as the team's second support and captain. This move comes after a disappointing end to 2017 for both EG and Misery, both falling short of expectations.
Leaves OpTic
November 28, 2017
OpTic Gaming announced via their website on Tuesday that Misery would be leaving the team and would be replaced by Martin 'Saksa' Sazdov for the rest of the year.
Misery's departure, while surprising, was not unforeseen. The squad played nearly the entire Midas Mode tournament without him, using kitrak as a standin. Misery will undoubtedly be part of a new team in the new year with the disband of Mid or Feed and so many valuable players still in the free agent pool.
Back to a more comfortable role
September 26, 2017
In an announcement on OpTic Gaming's Twitter, Misery will be part of the organization's first foray in Dota 2.
Yet another veteran presence for the team, he will be stepping aside from his normal captain role to make way for PPD. While a lot of people say that the best is behind Misery, not having to worry about drafting and shotcalling is a boon for any player. Known for his roaming Pudge back in the day, Misery might be making highlight reels in the roaming role once again.
Free Agent
Stepping out of the captains role with new team
September 5, 2017
Misery was announced to be part of a new team that included Pajkatt, CC&C, Zai and PPD on Tuesday via Ludwig 'Zai' Wahlberg's personal twitter account.
Misery will be assuming the 4-position support role for this new stack and lifting himself out of the captain's chair in favor of PPD. This new role may allow Misery to return to the top form we saw at TI6 now that he can focus on enabling his team rather than guiding his team while trying to make space.
Greedy drafts wear out their welcome
July 24, 2017
Miseryfinished Planet Odd's 3-2 loss to Team Liquid in the Grand Finals of DreamLeague Season 7 with a final KDA of 11/35/58.
In Game 1 Misery played Keeper of the Light in the safe-lane, which was his safest pick for the entire series. His lane support for Resolut1on paid dividends as it allowed w33 to run wild all over the map to take an explosive Game 1. In Game 2, Misery's middle lane Earthshaker helped to secure the middle lane and obliterate Liquid's hodge-podge lineup to put Planet Odd one game away from victory. In Game 3, Misery's middle support Spirit Breaker was undone by KuroKy's Oracle. Unable to get off the ground, Planet Odd was put away in under 18 minutes. In Game 4, Team Liquid picked around Misery's Tidehunter. Misery played decently, picking up his Blink Dagger at a reasonable time. In the end, there simply wasn't enough cohesion within Planet Odd's lineup to put Liquid away. In Game 5 Misery fell flat on his face as Earthshaker, recording no kills and giving away eight deaths as Liquid ran over Planet Odd for the series win.
