Heading to retirement
February 3, 2018
VPGame and LiquidDota announced that LFY would be losing three players ahead of this month's roster lock, with Inflame announcing his retirement.
ANALYSIS
No reason was given for Inflame's sudden retirement, however, his departure was a catalyst for the subsequent departure of DDC to VGJ.Storm and Op to possibly reunite with Invictus Gaming. This leaves LGD.FY with only four players with two days until roster lock.
Choke city for LFY offlaner
January 23, 2018
InFlame had one of the worst series of his pro career against Mineski in ESL One Genting. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 2/19/12.
ANALYSIS
He played Batrider in first game of the series. He tried hard to soak experience in the lane but Jabz and ninjaboogie were hot on his blazing trail. He was killed five times early on and was really bodied up for majority of the game. He only had one really good Flaming Lasso but in the end it was far from enough. In Game 2, InFlame played Puck. Despite being on a more slippery hero, he was killed often in the early game. He never recovered from the poor start and Mineski breezed to a Game 2 win.
Bad game on signature hero
December 8, 2017
InFlame never got going in LFY's lost to OG in MDL Macau. The off laner finished with a KDA of 2/9/10.
ANALYSIS
InFlame played Nature's Prophet in the only game of the series. The pick didn't really amount to much for his squad. He struggled early against n0tail's Broodmother, and when he tried to gank, he ended up dying to OG's rotations. He went for a 21-minute Mekansm and still managed 446 gold per minute, but his unnecessary deaths really hurt his team's momentum.
Couldn't step up his game
November 25, 2017
InFlame struggled to set the tempo for LFY as they fall to Vici Gaming in the Perfect World Masters. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 3/9/4.
ANALYSIS
InFlame went with Omniknight in the offlane in Game 1 of the series. He was aggressively zoned out by the Vici supports. He lost the early game badly and just couldn't get much done. His 20 minute Mekansm was slow by his standards and his rotations just couldn't cut it for LFY. In Game 2, InFlame had a slightly better time on the Doom. His 17-minute Crimson Guard helped him sustain his team in fights but that was the only real item he managed to acquire.
Unorthodox pick pays off for LFY
November 24, 2017
InFlame made a lot of early space for LFY as they make short work of Team Secret in the Perfect World Masters. The off laner finished with a KDA of 8/1/38.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, InFlame went with the unorthodox off-lane Elder Titan. His play was impeccable in the opener as he really helped LFY dominate the European team. His Echo Stomps were on point and he had a very impressive 495 gold per minute in the difficult off-lane role. In Game 2, his Tidehunter was similarly effective. He won his matchup against Ace early on and found a lot of farm for himself. His 19-minute Pipe of Insight made him almost impossible to kill, as he only died once in the game.
Nearly unstoppable in a commanding win
November 24, 2017
Inflame delivered on his Omniknight in a very one-sided win over Vega Squadron. He finished with a 6/1/11 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Inflame played a very impressive game. He dominated his lane, actually securing multiple solo kills on ALOHADANCE's Ursa. From there, it was a pretty easy game for LFY. The rest of the team's lanes did well, and it was simply a matter of grouping up and letting Inflame heal his team and keep them going. His healing and damage prevention totally shut down any Vega attempts to take a fight.
Continues brilliant form
August 10, 2017
InFlame was once again a catalyst for LFY in their victory against Virtus Pro. The skilled off laner finished with a KDA of 7/11/18.
ANALYSIS
InFlame began the series with the tanky Tiderhunter in the safe lane. He was picked off often in the early game, but it merely slowed down his farm. His items still came at decent times and his Ravages were on point as he dodged Chronospheres and positioned himself like a god. In Game 2, he was on his signature Nature's Prophet. He gave Ramzes a hard time early on with his impressive micro. Later on, he was always pulling off excellent flanks for his team with his Teleports and always made sure the lanes were shoved out in their favor.
Did everything he needed to do in a win
August 5, 2017
Inflame shined bright as LGD Forever Young swept Newbee 2-0 in the group stages of The International 7. Inflame finished the series with a 10/6/31 KDA.
ANALYSIS
On a rampage so far, LFY continued to look dominant. inflame played a pivotal role in the success as he constantly pushed lanes with his teammate, truly all on the same wavelength. LFY is clicking already, but there is a lot of tournament left ahead.
Calm under pressure in a commanding win
August 3, 2017
Inflame finished with an overall KDA of 7/6/11 in LGD.Forever Young's 2-0 win over Virtus.pro in the group stages of The International 7.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Inflame played Doom. He had an extremely rough start, dying in lane twice and even more often in the mid game. Despite this, he was able to keep himself in the game thanks to Devour bonus gold and become a major threat in the later stages of the game. He finished with a 3/6/11 KDA. In Game 2 Inflame played Puck. He crushed 9pasha in lane, securing a solo kill at one point. From there he continued to snowball LFY's lead along with the rest of his team. Once they grouped up, they were unstoppable and forced Virtus.pro to call GG at 15 minutes. Inflame finished with a 4/0/0 KDA.
Rough time for the LFY off lane
July 6, 2017
Inflame had a difficult game, finishing with a 2/9/12 KDA in a loss to OG in the MDL 2017 group stages.
ANALYSIS
Inflame played Nyx Assassin offlane. He struggled to get much done throughout most of the game, giving up a lot of deaths over the course of the game. Inflame died a lot while trying to scout out OG, a necessary role but a difficult one to play when your team is behind.
Impressive Epicenter run ends in defeat to Liquid
June 10, 2017
Inflame had a rough series in LGD.ForeverYoung's 0-2 loss to Liquid in the Epicenter semifinals. He finished with an overall KDA of 12/11/26.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Inflame played Batrider. He had a very up and down series. Inflame played well in most fights, initiating on good targets for LFY, but this was a close and action-packed game. Because of that, Inflame did end up dying often. He finished with a 9/6/11 KDA. Inflame played Dark Seer in Game 2. He had a much more difficult time in Game 2. His lane didn't go well and LFY's first fights also ended in defeat. After falling behind there was little he could do to catch LFY up. Wall of Replica wasn't particularly good against Liquid, and Inflame never managed to pull off a perfect combination with Monet's Chronospheres. Inflame finished with a 3/5/15 KDA.
Suave showing from LGD.FY's off lane
June 7, 2017
Inflame played an efficient series as LGD.FY sweep Natus Vincere 2-0 in Epicenter. The off laner finished with a KDA of 8/5/29.
ANALYSIS
Inflame began the series with the lane dominant Omniknight in the off lane. He turned around several fights in the early game with his clutch Purifications and amassed very good farm for himself. He only died twice and ended the game with 462 gold per minute. In Game 2, Inflame was on Batrider. His early game wasn't as great as his first game, but he still gave Na'Vi heaps of trouble. He opted for an early Drums of Endurance over a Blink Dagger and made magic with it as he racked up 17 assists.
Picked up by LGD Forever Young
May 12, 2017
Team Liquid announced that Inflame will be joining LGD Forever Young along with former WarriorsGaming Unity player AhFu.
ANALYSIS
After standout performances with CDEC's youth squad, Inflame will now get the opportunity to prove he is the real deal. Inflame will be taking over the off-lane role after Jixing departed the squad after the Kiev Major.
Fought hard in the decisive loss
July 23, 2016
Inflame played decently, but was not enough as CDEC.Youth lost 2-0 to Evil Genius in the quarterfinals of Starladder iLeague Season 2 finals. Inflame finished with an 11/10/10 KDA and destroyed two towers in the series.
ANALYSIS
Out of all of CDEC.Youth, Inflame seemed the most up to the challenge of pulling the upset against Evil Geniuses. He played inspired on Dragon Knight in Game 1 and was the reason CDEC.Youth was able to work up a 4,000 net worth advantage in the early game. Evil Geniuses woke up, however, and could not be stopped as they seized back the lead and took Game 1. In Game 2, Inflame played even better on Batrider. He started out the game with an impressive 5/0/1 KDA, but quickly fell off to finish with a 9/5/6 KDA. Evil Geniuses also played better in Game 2 and closed it convincingly. It was good to see Inflame take on the Evil Geniuses challenge, but CDEC.Youth still has improvements to make.
Poor play gets CDEC.Youth eliminated in 0-2 loss
July 11, 2016
The CDEC.Youth position two player was definitely second best in the middle lane. Inflame's poor performance and inability to handle his lane opponent led to a 0-2 loss to LGD Gaming. Inflame finished the series with a 5/10/8 KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, CDEC.Youth kept even with LGD Gaming for the first 15 minutes. Unfortunately for Inflame, he was never able to get a lead over his lane opponent, Maybe's Storm Spirit, as they split kills at three each. Unable to get any real lead, LGD's composition came online and Inflame couldn't do anything to help his team swing the game back in their favor. Playing Death Prophet, Inflame ended Game 1 with a 5/6/5 KDA and his team's highest net worth at 14,200 gold. Game 2 started a lot like Game 1 ended for Inflame. As if giving up first blood before the five-minute mark wasn't enough, his lane opponent, once again Maybe's Storm Spirit, had a perfect game with no deaths. Inflame could do nothing to control or stop any situation the CDEC.Youth squad was in, ending the game at an abysmal 0/4/3 KDA. CDEC.Youth was eliminated from the tournament and will need Inflame to step up if they plan to defeat We Are Young in the Dota Professional League on Tuesday.
