gh finished with a 3/9/38 overall KDA in a 2-0 win vs TNC at the China Supermajor.
ANALYSIS

He provided the initiation that lead to Liquid's overwhelming fight wins and subsequent tower pushes. gh finished with a 2/2/15 KDA.
Gets bullied around in tough loss
May 24, 2018
gh was constantly beaten up as Team Liquid lost to paiN Gaming 1-0 in the group stage of ESL One Birmingham. gh finished with a 4/15/9 KDA.
ANALYSIS
gh epitomized the Liquid struggles in this one as he died early and often. Gh finished with a team-high 15 deaths and was a large reason why paiN was able to pull away so quickly and violently. This game did not look like the Liquid we are used to. If that Liquid doesn't come back quickly, we may not even be looking at them in the tournament anymore.
Outstanding initiation all series
April 4, 2018
gh finished with a 3/8/41 overall KDA in a 2-0 win over Virtus pro at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
gh played Tusk in Game 1. The unique control offered by Tusk made gh incredibly useful this game for Liquid. He was able to lock down any hero on VP, even through magical immunity. When Liquid were trying to break VP's third lane of barracks, gh gave them the control to overcome their disadvantage in teamfights. He finished with a 2/4/25 KDA. gh played Earthshaker in Game 2, once again being the first man in for his team in fights. He finished with a 1/4/16 KDA this time, securing Liquid's path forward in the winners bracket.
Unusually low impact series from Liquid's star support
March 24, 2018
gh finished with an 8/17/21 overall KDA in a 2-0 loss to Fnatic at Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 9.
ANALYSIS
gh had a rough time on Sand King in Game 1. It took him a long time to finally farm up a Blink Dagger, and that wasn't enough to swing things dramatically in Fnatic's favor. gh did a decent job initiating, but he couldn't be everywhere all the time. He finished with a 5/11/9 KDA. In Game 2 gh played Earth Spirit. His early-game was fantastic, but this lead was thrown away when a high ground attempt ended in Liquid getting five-man wiped and Fnatic gaining an avenue to come back into the game. As Liquid's lead continued to slip, gh's plays grew more and more desperate and he put himself in very dangerous situations. He finished with a 3/6/12 KDA.
Put down as Io in both games
March 23, 2018
gh finished with an overall KDA of 1/20/7 in a 0-2 loss to Team Secret at Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 9.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 gh's Io was defeated handily by Secret. The enemy was constantly prepared for him to be showing up to fights and moving his teammates around the map. gh was quickly bursted down at the start of fights, finishing with a 1/8/3 KDA. gh played Io again in Game 2 and was met with similar results. Secret were not going to fall for his tricks after defeating him in Game 1, and despite gh's best efforts Liquid were defeated again. He finished with a 0/12/4 KDA.
Avoids tilting after a terrible Game 2 at PGL Bucharest
March 9, 2018
gh played a solid series apart from an embarrassing Game 2 in a 2-1 win over Evil Geniuses. He finished with an overall KDA of 9/12/28.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 gh played Earth Spirit, delivering a fantastic performance that at this point has become standard for him. gh's early movement was good, stemming the bleeding in a rough Liquid lane phase along with Kuroky's Dark Willow. In the mid and late game, gh gave yet another display of how potent Earth Spirit's disables are in the right hands. He finished with a 4/4/13 KDA. In Game 2 gh played Keeper of the Light, getting totally demolished along with the rest of his team. He finished with a 0/6/0 KDA. gh played Elder Titan in Game 3, setting up his team to take a commanding win to close out the series. He contributed a massive amount of both control and damage to the game for Liquid and was a critical part of them being able to win fights. gh finished with a 5/2/15 KDA.
Lets win slip away
March 8, 2018
gh tried his best as Team Liquid was defeated by Evil Geniuses 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. gh finished with a 5/8/27 KDA.
ANALYSIS
This loss will be a tough one fort Liquid, as it is one they should have won. gh did everything he could, as he played Elder Titan and did a great job of supporting his team in the endless fighting this game produced. Over the hour-plus-long game, gh racked up a team-high 27 assists, most of which came early on. Even with the lead on their side, EG was able to mount a comeback against Liquid. gh and Liquid are still a great team, and at the end of this event, we may just look back at this match as a little speed bump on the way to victory.
Grinds his way to a win
March 7, 2018
gh finished a close game against OG at PGL Bucharest with a 2/6/20 KDA.
ANALYSIS
gh played Sand King against OG. His job was not an enviable one, but gh farmed up a 14-minute Blink Dagger and starting jumping into fights head first. He started to die a lot as the game went later but was almost always able to at least stun people on OG if not get some good damage in with Epicenter.
Masterful Earth Spirit performance
March 7, 2018
GH had another masterful performance for Liquid in their domination of Vici Gaming in the Bucharest Major. The prolific support finished with a KDA of 1/0/21.
ANALYSIS
GH treated Dota 2 fans with another impressive display on his signature Earth Spirit. His rotations in the early stage gave Vici Gaming several problems. GH's display against Vici Gaming was so noteworthy that he didn't even die a single time. His 16-minute Blink Dagger was also one of the faster timings on the hero.
Effective even when countered
March 4, 2018
gh finished with a 6/6/19 KDA against LFY at PGL Bucharest.
ANALYSIS
gh played Earth Spirit in Liquid's first game. Despite LFY counter-picking his hero with extreme enthusiasm, gh still managed to be very effective for Liquid. There wasn't much he could do in the lane phase, but he more than made up for it with his late-game plays.
Shows off fantastic Earth Spirit play in critical Game 3
February 23, 2018
gh closed out the series with an explosive Game 3 in Liquid's 2-1 win vs Secret at ESL One Katowice.
ANALYSIS
gh played Io in Game 1. Despite leading his team in deaths, with 5, gh played a critical role in Liquid's decisive win. He made his teammates unbelievably difficult to bring down in fights with the healing and damage reduction he provided, and his positioning was good enough that he didn't die until the end of fights. He finished with a 3/5/21 KDA. In Game 2 gh played Naga Siren. His Song of the Siren gave Liquid some nice potential for teamfight combos, but Secret did a great job playing around him and either counter-initiating or just tanking through the damage that followed up Song. gh finished with a 2/5/10 KDA. gh played Earth Spirit in Game 3, dominating Secret from start to finish. He moved around the map extremely well, finding lots of kills all throughout the game. gh also played very well in teamfights, putting his disables to excellent use all game. He finished with a 0/2/22 KDA.
Excellent series from Liquid's support
February 22, 2018
gh played Elder Titan in both games of a 2-0 win against OG at ESL One Katowice. He finished with a 5/5/37 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 he added a lot of damage to Liquid's teamfight thanks to his Natural Order aura, while also providing a nice disable to set up fights. He did a good job positioning himself in a game full of chaotic teamfights, finishing with a 2/5/22 KDA. In Game 2 gh delivered just as much of a damage boost and control without giving up a single death. He finished with a 3/0/15 KDA.
Masterful performance from Liquid support
February 1, 2018
GH continues to prove he is the best position-four support in Dota with another masterful display against LGD. The Lebanese support finished with a KDA of 5/19/34.
ANALYSIS
GH kicked off the series with his signature Keeper of the Light. He again showed off his incredible farming prowess on the hero, getting a 21-minute Aghanim's Scepter. His Mana Leak and Blinding Light combos were spot and his Illuminates were always injecting new life for Liquid in engagements. In Game 2, he was on another signature hero with Io. His laning phase with Mind_Control caused numerous problems for Liquid. In the late game, his Relocates were picture perfect as Liquid were never in danger of losing key heroes.
Domination from Liquid's star support
January 27, 2018
gh finished with a 7/5/41 overall KDA in a commanding 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at ESL One Genting.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 gh got the chance to play Io, showing off exactly why this hero is so often banned vs teams who can put it to good use. gh made his teammates practically immortal all game, only surrendering a team total of five deaths to EG. gh finished with a 4/3/13 KDA. In Game 2 gh played Earth Spirit, yet another hero that he absolutely shines on. This game and series in general just showed off what a potent player gh is. It doesn't matter what hero he plays, gh will find ways to succeed. His Earth Spirit was just as effective as his Io in Game 1, but this time he was contributing amazing disables and damage instead of healing. He finished with a 3/2/28 KDA.
Crushes Na'Vi in quick 2-0 win
January 24, 2018
gh finished a great series with an overall KDA of 6/12/32 in a 2-0 win over Na'Vi at ESL One Genting.
ANALYSIS
gh played Rubick in Game 1. He played well throughout all stages of the game, despite having to sacrifice himself in order for a teammate to live a couple of times. His positioning in fights was good, allowing him to get a lot of mileage out of Na'Vi's spells. He finished with a 1/5/17 KDA. In Game 2 gh played Earth Spirit. Despite not finding a lot of success in his early movements, gh managed to make up for it in the mid game. He finished with a 5/7/15 KDA.
