Ends the series on a harsh low note
June 10, 2018
Chalice started out strong but struggled in the final two games of a close 2-1 loss to Virtus.pro at the China Supermajor. He finished with a 13/26/37 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
Chalice played a good Beastmaster in Game 1. In teamfights he was usually able to survive through most of it, getting his spells off and making sure his teammates got to fight with his attack speed aura. He finished with a 6/5/11 KDA. In Game 2 Chalice played Doom. He did a great job in the mid-game using Doom to shut down VP's teamfight by denying a key ability from one of the cores. He finished with a 6/6/18 KDA in a rough hour-long loss. In Game 3 Chalice had a miserable time on Beastmaster. He got destroyed by VP, leading the server in deaths with a whopping 15. He finished with a 1/15/8 KDA.
Was a bane to the enemy carry
June 3, 2018
Chalice had a solid series for LGD in their win against Infamous at the China Supermajor. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 14/10/44.
ANALYSIS
Chalice did his job of denying the enemy carry a good laning stage perfectly throughout the series. In Game 1, his Brewmaster was just spamming Drunken Haze on Kotaro Hayama's Luna to keep him from taking crucial last hits early. Once he got his Primal Split, he was always making sure that LGD were fighting with the numbers advantage as one Infamous hero was always up in the air. In Game 2, his Clockwerk found less farm early than his Brewmaster but it didn't matter. He was always being a nuisance for Infamous and his Hookshot initiations got him involved in 36 of his team's 44 kills.
Continues to be the offlane wonder kid
April 3, 2018
Chalice was all over the map for LGD in their win against Evil Geniuses at the Dota Asia Championships 2018. The young offlaner finished with a KDA of 11/12/31.
ANALYSIS
Chalice played Clockwerk in the offlane in Game 1 of the series. He easily shrugged off his poor laning stage to get himself involved with his perfect Hookshot initiations. Chalice was involved in 28 of his team's 35 kills in a very gallant performance from the young star. In Game 2, Chalice played his signature Underlord. He went for the typical utility build with Underlord but it was his Dark Rifts that really gave EG problems. He automatically used his ultimate defensively whenever the Nightstalker's Darkness would go off and EG could not fight the engagements that they wanted.
Couldn't step up his game
March 31, 2018
Chalice had a poor showing against Optic in LGD's defeat at the Dota Asia Championships 2018. The young offlaner finished with a KDA of 0/6/3.
ANALYSIS
Chalice's struggles on his Tiny started from the laning phase. He couldn't secure a last hit to save his life against Pajkatt's Terrorblade. He still got a respectable 13-minute Blink Dagger but it never really paid dividends for him. With his team expected to fight four on five, he really needed to have a better showing. He did manage to steal the Aegis of the Immortal from Optic in the endgame but it was still too little, too late for Chalice.
Hard series for LGD's new offlane
February 21, 2018
Chalice got his bell rung by Secret in a 0-2 loss at ESL One Katowice. He finished with an overall KDA of 3/15/17.
ANALYSIS
Chalice played Omniknight in Game 1, but was ineffective at keeping his team alive. He had a tough time in lane, and then continued to get picked off as the game went on. Underleved and underfarmed, Chalice was an easy kill for Secret in fights despite his powerful spells. He finished with a 1/5/1 KDA. Game 2 was even rougher for Chalice. He had a decent time in lane, but after 10 minutes he started dying extremely often. This seriously hurt his item progression, with his Force Staff coming 12 minutes after Blink Dagger and leaving him starved for levels. He finished with a 2/10/16 KDA.
Good game from LGD's newest member
February 20, 2018
Chalice finished with a 4/4/13 KDA in a nice win over Evil Geniuses at ESL One Katowice.
ANALYSIS
Despite his inexperience on the pro scene, Chalice played very well against EG. He was heavily focused in fights and gave up a few deaths, but overall his positioning was good and he was able to deal a lot of damage in fights.
Rough international debut for young LGD offlaner
February 1, 2018
Chalice struggled against reigning The International champions Team Liquid in Starladder. The young offlaner finished with a KDA of 7/11/23.
ANALYSIS
Chalice kicked off the series with Underlord in the offlane. He lost his laning stage match up against Mind_Control's Beastmaster. He bought a 15-minute Force Staff to help his team take fights better, and it was semi-successful. However, his lack of defensive items meant he couldn't frontline properly for his team, and LGD struggled for it. In Game 2, Chalice played Omniknight and won his lane this time around. He went for an early Phase Boots and used it to bring the fight to Liquid. Unfortunately, his lack of defensive items once again proved to be a bad omen for LGD, as they could not take a fight against Liquid without taking severe casualties.
