Delivers from the offlane
June 24, 2018
s4 finished with a 3/3/21 KDA on Magnus in a win over Immortals at The International 8 North American qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
This was an impressive game from s4, who managed to finish with the fewest deaths in the game despite having to initiate in fights for EG. His positioning was very good all game, managing to hide himself before fights and make Immortals make very nervous plays.
Rocky start on Evil Geniuses
June 6, 2018
s4 had a shaky series, finishing with an 8/8/17 overall KDA in a 0-2 loss to Optic Gaming at the China Supermajor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 s4 played well on Axe. He did a nice job initiating fights in the early and mid game but started to die a lot more as the game went on. Optic adjusted to his initiation very well, having multiple players ready with Eul's Scepters to shut down s4's Berserker's Call. He finished with a 5/5/11 KDA. s4 played an underwhelming Night Stalker in Game 2. He was able to help set up for some kills with his night time vision advantage but couldn't get enough done to warrant putting Night Stalker as a core over support. He finished with a 3/3/6 KDA.
New team, same offlane struggle
June 2, 2018
s4 had a tough time in a 2-0 loss to TNC at the China Supermajor. He finished with an overall KDA of 9/21/32.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Beastmaster in Game 1. He had a horrible early game, feeding away six kills before 10 minutes, but managed to come back and pull together a decent mid-game. Unfortunately for s4 and EG, things began to fall apart when they tried to break the TNC high ground and the tides of the game turned. s4 finished with a 5/14/16 KDA. In Game 2 s4 played Centaur Warrunner. He had a few flashes of brilliance where an initiation looked like it would turn the tables, but a combination of EG being behind and TNC's preparedness made sure this never happened. s4 finished with a 4/7/16 KDA.
Leaves OG to reunite with Arteezy
May 28, 2018
Evil Geniuses and OG both announced the transfer of s4 with a pair of Facebook posts just moments apart.
ANALYSIS
After an extremely disappointing year for OG, s4 will be leaving the team to join up with Evil Geniuses in the American region. s4 has previously played with Arteezy in the infamous TI5 Team Secret squad. The two had an immense amount of success with that roster, ignoring TI5 itself, giving high hopes for this new EG team. s4's first appearance with EG will be at the upcoming China Dota 2 Supermajor.
Comes up short
May 24, 2018
s4 finished a demoralizing loss to Virtus.pro with a 1/4/1 KDA on Queen of Pain.
ANALYSIS
His mobility wasn't nearly enough to save s4 this game. After losing middle to No[o]ne, s4 was forced to spend the rest of the game on the back foot. Virtus.pro just had too much damage and control for him to commit to fights, and his damage barely tickled them all game.
Triumphant return to mid for the veteran
April 30, 2018
s4 proved to be the difference maker in his return to mid for OG at Epicenter XL. The veteran finished with a KDA of 23/11/25.
ANALYSIS
s4's opening game on the Dragon Knight against MidOne's Gyrocopter was all sorts of wrong. He died numerous times early on and didn't recover at all. He even had a curious play where he prioritized the courier in an important clash over enemy heroes. Despite the rough start, his performance in Game 2 and 3 was highly efficient. He shifted over to the Razor in the second game of the series to tremendous effect. He made sure Ace's Lifestealer had as difficult a time as possible. By the 25-minute mark, he farmed himself a Eul's, a Black King Bar, and an Aghanim's Scepter and was just taking names for OG. In Game 3, his Leshrac was just a picture of perfection. Despite being bullied out of lane by MidOne's Lina early on, s4 managed to turn it around and find a counter-kill. Afterward, he was just finding kills left and right for OG.
Helps secure key kills in an OG win
March 30, 2018
s4 finished with a 3/5/16 KDA in a win over Optic at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
This was a slow to start game for s4, but after a rough early and mid game he managed to help lock down some kills that blew things wide open for OG. The unique lockdown from Duel was critical in OG's ability to either bring down a key core like Terrorblade, or just find the pick-offs that kept OG in the game when they were fighting from behind.
Struggles to get going
March 23, 2018
S4 had a quiet series against Newbee in OG's elimination in Dreamleague Season 9. The former Alliance star finished with a KDA of 7/9/14.
ANALYSIS
S4 kicked off the series with his signature Puck in the mid lane. He got the better end of the laning stage against Sccc's Gyrocopter, but his decision to go for a Veil of Discord before a Blink Dagger really hurt his team. OG couldn't take a fight without his initiation and his Dagger came when it was too late at the 17-minute mark, when Newbee had taken firm control of the game. In Game 2, his Faceless Void had a successful laning stage, but it never really amounted to much. His Chronospheres were good but lacked any real followup from OG.
Played a good game but couldn't take down Liquid
March 7, 2018
s4 finished with a 3/4/21 KDA in a well-played loss to Liquid at PGL Bucharest.
ANALYSIS
s4 played a great Batrider in a close elimination game. He was a massive threat to Liquid for the majority of the game, something that seems rare for Batrider these days. Unfortunately for OG, s4's effectiveness seemed to plummet in the latest stages of the game. There was no good target for initiation anymore at this point.
Out of ESL One Katowice
February 22, 2018
s4 finished a hard 0-2 loss to Liquid with a 3/12/15 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Batrider in Game 1, returning to an old comfort hero but showing some of its major weaknesses. s4 played a decent game, but had a miserable time initiating against Liquid's lineup. Kuroky's Oracle was constantly in position to totally shut down s4, and even finding a target to Lasso was difficult by itself. s4 finished with a 2/9/11 KDA. In Game 2 s4 played Brewmaster. When he was able to get off Primal Split in fights OG actually found some success in fights, but these moments were extremely far between. He finished the game with a 1/3/4 KDA.
Can't put together complete game
February 21, 2018
s4 played a large role in fights as OG lost to Vici Gaming 1-0 in the first round of ESL One Katowice. s4 finished with a 3/3/14 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Everything started out beautifully for s4 and OG. s4 helped control all of the early fights for his team, as he worked his way to a team-high 14 assists in the loss. However, the majority of his numbers came early as OG was not able to keep the momentum going throughout the match. OG was sent to the lower bracket with their title hopes on the line.
Unable to play from behind
January 9, 2018
s4 finished OG's 2-0 loss to Vici Gaming in the semi-finals of Captains Draft 4 with an average KDA 4/8/10.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Spirit Breaker in Game 1 with limited effect. He was able to farm some items, but quickly fell off as Vici Gaming started their ganks. In Game 2, s4 played Clockwork. While he was able to accelerate the progress of some of his teammates he fell off to hard towards the end of the game and became more fodder than formidable.
No problem playing from behind
January 6, 2018
s4 showed some impressive mental fortitude, battling his way back into both games of a 2-0 win against Empire at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 10/11/30.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 s4 played Brewmaster. He started the game off by dying four times in lane, but after 10 minutes he only gave up a single additional death. His initiation was fantastic, and he was able to provide some excellent control in fights that let OG pick targets with a lot of freedom. s4 finished with a 6/5/17 KDA. s4 delivered a repeat of his Game 1 performance in Game 2, this time on Centaur Warrunner. He died a lot in the early game, but was able to fight his way back into the game by grouping up and taking small engagements with his team. Eventually, he was farmed enough to start full fledged fights, at which point OG completely took over the game. s4 finished with a 4/6/13 KDA.
Bounces back after poor start
January 4, 2018
S4 played a solid game for OG in their win against compLexity in Captain's Draft 4.0. He finished with a KDA of 5/3/12.
ANALYSIS
S4's Clockwerk in the only game of the series had some early struggles. His 20-minute Blade Mail was a lot later than he would have liked, but his incredible Hookshots in the latter stages of the game really allowed OG to take control.
Consistent as always
December 18, 2017
s4 finished OG's 2-1 victory over compLexity in the Wild Card Finals at The Summit 8 with an average KDA of 2/5/11.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, s4 played the damage sponge as Abaddon, helping to protect Resolut1on and keep his carry from a single death. s4 finished with a 0/5/11 KDA. s4's Puck in Game 2 got off to a hot start but couldn't recoup the losses from the other lanes, finishing with a 2/7/4 KDA. In Game 3, s4 came through as Brewmaster, soaking up damage and controlling fights as N0tail was split pushing. S4 finished Game 2 with a 4/4/19 KDA.
