Relieved to be out from Evil Geniuses
May 27, 2018
Misery posted a tweet Sunday announcing that he has been kicked from Evil Geniuses.
ANALYSIS
This move comes after a flurry of poor results over the course of the DPC season leading up to The International. Apart from a few isolated cases, EG's season has been a downward spiral. The team won GESC Indonesia against a weak pool of competition but was smashed at the recent ESL Birmingham Major, finishing tied for last place. EG thanked Misery for his time on the team via Twitter and announced that there will be a roster update before the upcoming Supermajor.
Was all over the place in a loss
May 23, 2018
Misery had his nose in all the action as Evil Geniuses lost to Fnatic 1-0 in the group stage of ESL One Birmingham. Misery finished with a 2/6/12 KDA.
ANALYSIS
This was an interesting matchup for Misery as it was against the player he replaced on EG, Universe. However, there was plenty on the line outside of that storyline, as EG is looking to keep their strong run at Majors alive. That hope was slowly suffocated out though, as Fnatic just macro-gamed EG down, taking initiative on objectives all over. Misery was outplayed by Universe here, but there seems to be no hard feelings between the two.
Killed nonstop all game by Team Secret
May 10, 2018
Misery had a brutal game vs Team Secret at GESC Thailand. He finished with a miserable 6/18/8 KDA on Lion.
ANALYSIS
Misery was pretty effective in most skirmishes, but if any of the Secret cores showed up to play, Misery ended up dead. His spells still contributed to EG's fights, but Misery paid for it with his life almost every single time.
DAC 2018 run comes to a disappointing end
April 5, 2018
Misery had a miserable game on Tusk, finishing with a 0/9/7 KDA and being eliminated from DAC 2018 by Virtus.pro.
ANALYSIS
Misery was completely outpaced by the Virtus.pro supports, who were constantly rotating around the map while Misery struggled to keep up. Once EG started to fall behind, things only got worse for Misery. The job of saving teammates is much less glamorous when playing from behind, and in the end Misery couldn't do more than delay the inevitable.
Low impact game from Evil Geniuses captain
April 1, 2018
Misery played Ancient Apparition vs Mineski at DAC 2018, finishing with a 2/4/8 KDA.
ANALYSIS
This was an underwhelming game for Misery. Even when his Ice Blasts connected, they rarely lead to any convincing teamfight wins. It seemed like Evil Geniuses' coordination was a bit off this game, Misery seemed to not have Ice Blast during Chronosphere very often, leaving EG without their main combo play.
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
