Kuro Salehi Takhasomi 
Team Liquid
Secures Minor slot
September 27, 2018
Kuroky was a mastermind tactician for Liquid as they booked their slots at the DreamLeague Qualifiers. The captain finished with a KDA of 4/9/42.
Kuroky played Earthshaker in Game 1 of the series. His rotations helped Liquid win their lanes with his pinpoint Fissures. His Blink Dagger was on the slow side at 20 minutes but it didn't really affect Liquid's stomp. In Game 2, he switched it up to Enigma as a deny pick for bOne7. He still managed to play a good game despite a greedier than usual Hard Support hero. His eight deaths were unfortunate, but his Black Hole threat really unnerved MangoBay.
Captains Liquid to much-needed win
September 26, 2018
Kuroky lead Liquid to a 2-1 win over Lithium in the Dreamleague Season 10 Qualifiers. He finished with a 7/24/36 overall KDA.
Kuroky put major pressure on Lithium in Game 1 on Chen. The pressure he put on the map in the early game was too much to handle, and lead to a very large Liquid lead. Kuroky pushed that early advantage all game, never giving Lithium the space to catch up. He finished with a 1/6/12 KDA. In Game 2 Kuroky got destroyed on Witch Doctor. Nothing seemed to be going his way as he died over and over again to anyone on Lithium without getting to use his spells well. He finished with a 2/16/8 KDA. Kuroky played an amazing Winter Wyvern in Game 3. His saves with Cold Embrace were absolutely backbreaking for Lithium, undoing massive amounts of work and letting Liquid reset fights with ease. Kuroky finished with a 4/2/16 KDA.
Knocked down to the lower bracket by Secret
September 20, 2018
Kuroky finished with a 3/24/28 overall KDA in a 0-2 loss to Team Secret in the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers.
Kuro had a rough time on Phoenix in Game 1. He died extremely easily in fights, and Secret had no problem at all switching and bringing down his Supernova egg. He finished with a 1/11/5 KDA. Game 2 went even worse for Kuro, on Lion this time. He managed to contribute to a few more kills at least, but finished with two more deaths than in Game 1. He was a priority target all game for Secret thanks to his powerful disables and burst damage, but he was never given much chance to show them off. He finished with a 2/13/13 KDA.
Leads Liquid to two nice wins
August 17, 2018
Kuroky finished a 2-0 win vs Mineski in the group stages of The International 8 with an overall KDA of 6/12/42.
In Game 1 Kuroky played a good Silencer. His positioning was very good all game, letting him get off Global Silence in all but a few fights for Liquid. If Mineski couldn't bring him down, Global Silence practically guaranteed Liquid would win the ensuing fight. He finished with a 4/6/21 KDA. In Game 2 Kuroky played Vengeful Spirit, using Nether Swap aggressively to help his team find quick kills to let them push towers. He finished with a 2/6/21 KDA.
Swaps to carry in Game 2
August 15, 2018
Kuroky finished Team Liquid's 2-0 victory over OG during The International 2018 group stages with an average KDA of 7/9/23.
In Game 1, Kuroky's Chen play was exactly what Liquid needed to hold on and break out of OG's early hold on the game. He was able to help assert map control and push down towers, putting Liquid back into the drivers seat. In Game 2, Kuroky took the gloves off, switching over to hard carry as Clinkz. Although OG put up a good fight, Kuroky racked up 17 kill en route to a clean victory.
Leads Liquid to an easy win
June 4, 2018
Kuroky was impressive in a 2-0 win vs TNC at the China Supermajor. He finished with a 3/5/37 overall KDA.
Kuroky played Naga Siren in Game 1, providing valuable vision and teamfight setup for Liquid. He played very well in lane, moving around the map to help out his teammates early on. Later, Kuroky provided the easy setup for Mind_Control's Dark Seer to follow up on. Kuroky finished with a 3/3/27 KDA. In Game 2 Kuroky crushed TNC with Warlock. His massive initiations were just another nail in the coffin for TNC, giving Liquid an overwhelming damage advantage. Kuroky finished with a 1/2/10 KDA and 11,100 damage done in a 20 minute game.
Completely neutralized
May 24, 2018
KuroKy could not do much as Team Liquid lost to paiN Gaming 1-0 in the group stage of ESL One Birmingham. KuroKy finished with a 3/10/14 KDA.
After you win The International, you seem to have a giant target on your back for the year. paiN came in hot looking to knock off Liquid and they did just that. KuroKy specifically was overwhelmed as he died 10 times while only finding three kills. paiN was just clearly the better team in this match and Liquid will need to get it together quickly if they want to stay in Birmingham.
Gets revenge on Virtus pro
April 4, 2018
Kuroky lead his team to a 2-0 win over Virtus pro at DAC 2018. He finished with an overall KDA of 8/5/29.
In Game 1 Kuroky played Dark Willow. He contributed a lot of control and burst damage in fights while keeping himself alive by dipping into the Shadow Realm. This also meant he got a lot of value from his items. Kuroky's Meteor Hammer and Force Staff were both very useful all game in addition to his hero. He also performed the critical role of keeping his team level-headed as the game dragged on to 50 minutes. He finished with a 2/2/13 KDA. In Game 2 Kuroky played Ancient Apparition. His positioning was excellent, allowing him to both finish with the fewest deaths and land a large percentage of his Ice Blasts. Kuroky finished with a 6/3/16 KDA.
Can't quite fill Miracle's shoes
March 24, 2018
Kuroky finished with a 6/13/12 overall KDA in a 2-0 loss to Fnatic at Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 9.
Kuroky played Outworld Devourer in Game 1, continuing to fill in for Miracle. Kuroky played most of the game extremely well, but unfortunately for Liquid he gave up his deaths when it counted the most. Despite Kuroky's extensive skill, the difference between him and a core player like Miracle was really showcased in the late game when a single death blew the game out of Liquid's hands. Kuroky finished with a 5/4/7 KDA. In Game 2 Kuroky played Pugna. Things started out well for Kuroky and Liquid. They took some nice early fights and towers, but after a botched high-ground attempt everything started to slip away. Kuroky no longer had the damage to stand up in fights, and instead, he found himself on the receiving end of fatal burst damage. He finished with a 1/9/5 KDA.
Not quite ready to fill in for Miracle
March 23, 2018
Kuroky stood in for Miracle but couldn't deliver the same results against Team Secret at Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 9, losing 0-2. He finished with an overall KDA of 1/7/4.
With Miracle on a break, Kuroky took up the role of carry and played Phantom Lancer in Game 1. He played a decent enough game but couldn't stand up to the combined might of Secret. If Kuroky got stunned, he was instantly blown up in most cases. He finished the game with a 1/3/1 KDA. In Game 2 Kuroky played Lifestealer. He had a similar time in this game, playing a decent individual game but not contributing nearly enough to stop Secret's lead. Kuroky had major issues in fights against Secret's Ursa and was forced to play very scared all game. He finished with a 0/4/3 KDA.
Advances closer to the PGL Bucharest finals
March 9, 2018
Kuroky learned his lesson after a brutal Game 2 loss vs EG, taking the series 2-1. He finished with an 11/11/18 overall KDA.
Kuroky played Dark Willow, the newest addition to captain's mode, in Game 1. Kuroky looked very good on the hero, putting hero mobility and control potential to great use even up against an Abaddon. The invulnerability from Shadow Realm made Kuroky practically impossible to bring down. He finished with a 5/0/10 KDA. Kuroky played Dark Willow again in Game 2. This was pretty much the complete opposite of his Game 1 performance. Instead of not dying a single time, neither Kuroky nor the rest of Liquid found even a single kill. Kuroky finished with a 0/6/0 KDA. In Game 3 Kuroky played Bane. He played a very good game to close out the series for Liquid. Despite giving up the most deaths on his team, he was almost always in position to use his spells well in fights before going down. He finished with a 6/5/8 KDA.
Disappoints in a major way
March 8, 2018
KuroKy had his worst game yet as Team Liquid was defeated by Evil Geniuses 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. KuroKy finished with a 2/16/21 KDA.
Not too far removed from holding the Aegis at The International 7, KuroKy and Liquid are looking to keep their domination going. This game proved true to that as they built up a big lead. However, that lead disappeared and turned into an EG win before they even knew it. KuroKy was just awful in this game. He played Bane and led the entire game in deaths with 16, seemingly unable to go even four minutes at a time without being picked off. Chalk this one up as a bad showing as we can expect better from KuroKy.
Shaky game from Liquid's captain
March 7, 2018
Kuroky had a rough game against OG but still managed to eke out win. He finished with a 4/9/13 KDA.
Kuroky played Warlock in Liquid's decider match vs OG. His positioning was usually pretty good, but there were a couple of key fights in which Kuroky was not able to use Chaotic Offering well. These fight losses were a huge part of what made this game so close, but when Kuroky was able to be effective Liquid looked firmly in control.
Leads Liquid to a win
March 4, 2018
Kuroky finished with a 4/3/16 KDA in win over LFY at PGL Bucharest.
Kuroky played Chen. One could make a strong point that the game was already massively in Liquid's favor as soon as Kuroky first-picked his Chen because his impact snowballed Liquid to a very convincing win. He was able to help his lanes win or at least break even, and then transitioned that into a strong tower push.
Bests rival captain Puppey at ESL One Katowice
February 23, 2018
Kuroky finished a nice 2-1 series win vs Secret with an overall KDA of 6/12/46.
In Game 1 Kuroky played Disruptor. He was an incredible frustration for Secret, putting his highly contested hero to great use. Kuroky finished the game with a 3/3/22 KDA. Kuroky played Jakiro in Game 2. He played pretty well, but was very weak to Secret's massive burst damage. He couldn't play around the burst all game, especially when fights got really chaotic in the later stages. He finished with a 1/6/9 KDA. In Game 3 Kuroky played Chen. He did an excellent job support his team and pushing the lanes this game. Kuroky applied a lot of pressure to the early lanes, which allowed two of his cores to snowball into extremely strong mid games that would win Liquid the series. Kuroky finished with a 2/3/16 KDA.
