Easy series for the Liquid offlaner
June 4, 2018
Mind_Control was very strong in both games of a 2-0 win vs TNC at the China Supermajor. He finished with a 12/3/21 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Mind_Control set the pace of fights on his Dark Seer. With the setup from Kuroky's Naga Siren, Mind_Control was able to easily hit multiple heroes with his Vacuum and Wall of Replica. This grouped up TNC for the rest of Liquid, leading to easy follow up stuns and damage. He finished with an 8/3/12 KDA. Mind_Control played Leshrac in Game 2, snowballing his way to a very quick win. After taking his lane, Mind_Control was able to group up with his team and obliterate TNC. He finished with a 4/0/9 KDA.
Underwhelms in losing performance
May 24, 2018
MinD_ContRol was outplayed as Team Liquid lost to paiN Gaming 1-0 in the group stage of ESL One Birmingham. MinD_ContRol finished with a 4/8/10 KDA.
ANALYSIS
paiN came out hot and dominated the early game, and just never looked back from there. Meanwhile, MinD_ContRol and Liquid were trying to keep themselves in it, but never stood a chance. MinD_ContRol struggled on Beastmaster and just seemed to be outplayed throughout. This is a game Liquid would like to move on from quickly.
High deaths but a solid series
April 4, 2018
Mind_Control finished with an 11/17/31 overall KDA in a rough but well-earned 2-0 win over Virtus pro.
ANALYSIS
Mind_Control played Underlord in Game 1. In addition to playing an impressive game overall, Mind_Control was a part of the huge late-game play that finally secured mega creeps for Liquid. Up against the superior teamfight of Virtus pro in the late game, it came down to a clutch teleport to the top lane from Mind_Control and Miracle. Mind_Control finished with a 6/8/13 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Venomancer, taking on the sacrificial role that MATUMBAMAN usually plays for Liquid. Mind_Control died a lot, but he also got his ultimate and other spells off in almost every single fight before going down. Despite being tied for most deaths with nine, Mind_Control still did the most damage of anyone in the game with 23,600. He finished with a 5/9/18 KDA.
Commendable performance despite a loss
March 24, 2018
Mind_Control played well, but with a sub on the team, Liquid couldn't stand up to Fnatic at Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 9, losing 2-0. Mind_Control finished with a 14/13/19 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Tiny. He played well, moving around the map and finding kills for his team, but it wasn't enough to stop Fnatic in the end. This was a crazy game with lots of fights, and Mind_Control was a part of nearly all of them. He had a lot of impact in the mid-game especially, but Liquid couldn't close out the game fast enough. He finished with a 9/8/8 KDA. Mind_Control played Nature's Prophet in Game 2. He had an excellent start to the game, moving around the map and finding lots of early kills and towers. Liquid were able to take an early barracks, but their retreat cost them dearly. With Fnatic now holding a lead, Mind_Control was unable to exert the same kind of pressure he had in the earlier stages of the game. He finished with a 5/5/11 KDA.
Helpless against Secret
March 23, 2018
Mind_Control finished a frustrating 0-2 loss to Team Secret at Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 9 with an overall KDA of 5/14/7.
ANALYSIS
Mind_Control played Beastmaster in Game 1. He tried his best, but this was a brutal loss for Liquid. Mind_Control was constantly trying to fight and find any kind of kill or objective for Liquid but got repeatedly punished for it. He finished with a 2/8/5 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Tidehunter to similar results. He spent the game trying to make plays without the personal strength or team to back him up fully. He finished with a 3/6/2 KDA.
Advances to the next round at PGL Bucharest
March 9, 2018
Apart from getting completely shut out in Game 2, Mind_Control played a great series in Liquid's 2-1 win over EG. He finished with an overall KDA of 7/6/25.
ANALYSIS
Mind_Control played a fantastic Dragon Knight in Game 1. His quick Blink Dagger (13 minutes) let Liquid find a series of extremely valuable kills on EG's cores to drag out the game when Liquid was behind early. Mind_Control and the rest of Liquid were able to hold on with some scrappy skirmish wins, giving Miracle the time he needed to beef up his Anti-Mage. Mind_Control finished with a 4/1/11 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Bristleback. For a moment in the early game it looked like Mind_Control might be able to pull Liquid into this game, but EG was too far ahead and playing too well. Mind_Control got totally shut out along with the rest of Liquid, finishing with a 0/3/0 KDA. In Game 3 Mind_Control played Omniknight, carrying his team to victory by making them impossible to kill. He had an excellent lane and was able to get a very quick Radiance, making him a threat in fights for more reasons than just his spells. Guardian Angel was devastating in this game too, shutting down all of EG's physical damage. Mind_Control finished with a 3/2/14 KDA.
Looks strong in a tough loss
March 8, 2018
MinD_ContRoL had a fantastic showing as Team Liquid was defeated by Evil Geniuses 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. MinD_ContRoL finished with a 12/9/25 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Liquid was clearly the better team in this match. They outfought EG early on and snowballed it into a lead that reached almost 20,000 in net worth. MinD_ContRol looked great on Batrider, but just wasn't able to keep his team together at the end. This is a tough loss for Liquid, but one that they can look back and gain confidence in knowing that they were the better team.
Brings the damage for Liquid
March 7, 2018
Mind_Control finished with a 10/4/14 KDA in a win over OG at PGL Bucharest.
ANALYSIS
Mind_Control slipped up a few times against OG but played a good game overall on Enchantress. He dealt massive damage in fights with Impetus, actually ending the game with the most damage dealt to enemy heroes on his team with 34,300. He made a few careless or cocky positioning errors that resulted in his death, but other than those this was a fantastic game from Mind_Control.
Another quiet, but solid performance
March 7, 2018
Mind_Control had a solid series for Liquid in their win against Vici Gaming in the Bucharest Major. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 2/2/13.
ANALYSIS
His Enchantress easily won the top lane against eLeVeN's Underlord. Mind_Control was causing such a problem for the Vici offlaner that they had to rotate multiple heroes to kill him off in the early game. He constantly pressured lane with just a Drums of Endurance and Vici struggled to deal with him.
Starts off PGL Bucharest with an impressive win
March 4, 2018
Mind_Control finished Liquid's win over LFY with a 4/3/13 KDA.
ANALYSIS

Advances to a rematch vs Vici Gaming
February 23, 2018
Mind_Control finished with an 11/11/32 overall KDA in a 2-1 win vs Secret at ESL One Katowice.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Enchantress, starting out the series with a commanding win. He did extremely well in lane, and managed to snowball with his team into fast towers and control of the game. With good positioning in fights and his Untouchable passive, Mind_Control was almost literally untouchable. He finished the game with a 6/1/15 KDA. Mind_Control played Enchantress again in Game 2, but didn't have nearly the same success. This time there were heroes on the Secret side with powerful burst that could bring him down almost instantly. Without his quasi-immortality, Mind_Control's aggressive playstyle came back to bite him in this game. He finished with a 3/7/7 KDA. In Game 3 Mind_Control played Puck. He played well, although this wasn't the flashiest Puck game of Mind_Control's career. He got the job done initiating for his team though, setting them up for a clean Game 3 win. He finished with a 2/3/10 KDA.
Great series from the Liquid offlane
February 22, 2018
Mind_Control was on point in both games of Liquid's 2-0 win over OG at ESL One Katowice. He finished with an overall KDA of 10/5/20.
ANALYSIS
Mind_Control played a great Tiny in Game 1, moving around the map to find kills and create space while still managing to transition into a major damage threat in the late game. He also provided some nice initiation for his team, as well as the burst to instantly bring down any support. He finished with a 6/4/11 KDA. Mind_Control took control of the map again in Game 2, this time on Nature's Prophet. He made fantastic use of his Teleportation ability, showing just why this hero was so feared in his hands at The International 7. Mind_Control was in almost every fight of Liquid's quick Game 2 win. He finished with a 4/1/9 KDA.
Solid performance from Liquid offlaner
February 1, 2018
Mind_Control once again churned out a solid series for Liquid in their dismantling of LGD in Starladder. The soft-spoken offlaner finished with a KDA of 12/12/29.
ANALYSIS
He kicked off the series with Beastmaster in the offlane. Mind_Control easily won his match up against Chalice's Underlord thanks to a four-minute Medallion of Courage. His momentum carried all the way to the end game, as he made so many plays for Liquid. In Game 2, Mind_Control's Tiny dual-laned with GH's Io and wreaked havoc. They were controlling the game from the get-go and LGD could not find any breathing room.
Superb initiation secures an easy win for Liquid
January 27, 2018
Mind_Control played a great series in a 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at ESL One Genting. He finished with an overall KDA of 14/3/25.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Mind_Control played an excellent Tiny. With support from gh's Io, Mind_Control was an unstoppable wrecking machine. His burst damage and control in fights was a huge part of what Liquid take such commanding wins all game. He finished with a 6/1/11 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played an excellent Sand King. His initiation was fantastic all game thanks to a very early 11-minute Blink Dagger that really opened things up for Liquid.

Excellent series from Liquid offlane
January 24, 2018
MinD_ContRoL finished with an impressive 11/6/24 overall KDA in a 2-0 win over Na'Vi at ESL One Genting.
ANALYSIS
MinD_ContRoL played Dragon Knight in Game 1. This has been a hero/lane combination that is mostly unique to Liquid, and it works in large part thanks to MinD_ContRoL's individual skill. He somehow managed to only die once in lane against a Razor, letting him scale well into the mid game as a durable frontline initiator for Liquid. He finished with a 6/1/9 KDA. In Game 2 MinD_ContRoL played a fantastic Legion Commander. Despite his deaths, he didn't give up any Duel damage and was a critical part of setting up kills for Liquid. MinD_ContRoL was instrumental in hunting down Na'Vi's heroes like Shadow Fiend and Nature's Prophet who were looking to split-push. He finished with a 5/5/15 KDA.
