Closes out the series after a rocky start
June 10, 2018
Ramzes finished with a 24/16/36 overall KDA in a tense 2-1 win over PSG.LGD at the China Supermajor.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes started the series with a rough Terrorblade game. There was too much damage and disable on PSG.LGD for him to do anything with his hero this game. He finished with a 4/5/6 KDA. Game 2 was also difficult for Ramzes, on Faceless Void this time. He had a lot resting on his Chronospheres and there was a lot available to LGD to shut him down. He also accidentally activated a Black King Bar three times, a costly mistake. He finished with a 7/7/21 KDA. Ramzes came roaring back on Sven in Game 3. He had a few deaths in lane but quickly farmed his way back into the game. He hit his stride around 20 minutes and never looked back, finishing with a 13/4/9 KDA.
Dominates Optic at the Supermajor
June 9, 2018
Ramzes cleaned up vs Optic in a 2-0 win at the China Supermajor. He finished with an overall KDA of 23/5/27.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes kicked things off with a nice game on Luna, farming up a storm and carrying Virtus pro through teamfights as the game went on. Ramzes' usefulness was limited for the early parts of the game but after picking up Black King Bar at 24 minutes he was free to join fights. He finished with a 7/2/14 KDA. In Game 2 Ramzes played Spectre. He got off to a slow start, but once he finished up his first few items Ramzes became nearly unstoppable vs Optic. Haunt allowed him to get on top of whatever he wanted with ease, chopping them down very quickly with Desolate. He finished with a 16/3/13 KDA.
Shows off his flexibility in a convincing win
June 5, 2018
Ramzes played a great series in a 2-1 win vs Newbee at the China Supermajor. He finished with an overall KDA of 35/3/24.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes' Slark dominated Game 1. He got decent early-game farm but really started to take off after completing his Shadow Blade. He was able to move around in fights with ease, picking off heroes on his own terms. He finished with a 13/0/6/ KDA. In Game 2 Ramzes played Morphling. He played well but couldn't carry the game all on his own. Ramzes was usually able to snag a kill or two in fights, but Newbee could kill his teammates faster than Ramzes could kill them. He finished with an 11/2/3 KDA. In Game 3 Ramzes played Death Prophet, coming back to seal out the series for VP. He took the back seat to No[o]ne's Templar Assassin this game, providing the backbone of VP's teamfight and tower pushing ability via Exorcism. Ramzes finished with an 11/1/15 KDA.
Red-hot performance
May 26, 2018
Ramzes continued to rack up the numbers for Virtus.pro at ESL One Birmingham. The explosive carry finished with a KDA of 30/6/28.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes kicked off the series with his carry Leshrac. His lane went incredible well picking up multiple kills on Tavo's Brewmaster with the help of Rodjer's Clockwerk. His 11-minute Eul's Specter of Divinity and 19-minute Bloodstone made him a very difficult target for Pain Gaming. He got so much Bloodstone charges in that game that he respawned almost instantly after falling to turn around an important clash in the late game for VP. In Game 2, Ramzes played Venomancer in the safelane. Despite not typically a Ramzes hero, he made Venomancer his own. Later on, he even picked up a crucial Heaven's Halberd that completely nullified hFn's Medusa.
Dominant game over Optic
May 24, 2018
Ramzes played a solid Slark, finishing with a 9/1/12 KDA vs Optic at ESL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Apart from giving away almost 1300 gold with his single death, this was a flawless game from Ramzes. He had a great lane and finished up a Shadow Blade by 12 minutes. For the rest of the game Ramzes was on the hunt constantly. In fights, his level and gold advantage allowed him to bravely charge in knowing that he could easily escape.
Obliterates OG
May 24, 2018
Ramzes finished with an 11/1/6 KDA on Morphling in a dominant win over OG at ESL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
Apart from a single death around 10 minutes, Ramzes never gave up any gold or experience to OG. He had an amazing lane, which lead to a 17-minute Linken's Sphere. This gave Ramzes tremendous freedom in fights, letting him move around and deal damage to whomever he pleased.
Pulls a win out of nowhere
May 5, 2018
Ramzes finished with a 3/7/14 KDA, narrowly edging out a win in a best-of-one elimination game vs Mineski at EPICENTER XL.
ANALYSIS
This was a miserable game for Ramzes, who started with an early deficit in lane and was bullied by Mineski nonstop. He died over and over in the mid-game but somehow managed to keep a respectable level of farm so that when Virtus.pro did finally win a huge fight, they could storm the Mineski base with a farmed Luna and snag the win.
Dominates Secret in two quick wins
May 2, 2018
Ramzes was excellent in a convincing 2-0 win over Team Secret at EPICENTER XL. He finished with an overall KDA of 21/3/15.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ramzes played a fantastic Slark, putting the screws to Secret in a very quick win. He got off to a fast lead and never looked back, constantly taking and winning fights. He finished with a 14/1/4 KDA. Ramzes played Lycan in Game 2, delivering another very impressive performance. He dealt huge damage in fights, but also gave Virtus.pro the ability to back up their fight wins with very fast tower pushes. He finished with a 7/2/11 KDA.
Continues to hold the title of best carry in Dota
April 29, 2018
Ramzes played a great series overall in a 2-1 win over Newbee at EPICENTER XL. He finished with an overall KDA of 33/12/33.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes started the series off on Lifestealer, delivering what has become a usually impressive performance for him. He went for the standard Radiance and Solar Crest, banking on evasion as his physical defense. It worked extremely well, making Ramzes completely un-killable and letting him deal tons of damage in fights. He finished with an 8/0/12 KDA. In Game 2 Ramzes played Broodmother but fell into the classic trap of not being able to seal things out early enough. As soon as he starting dying, the game began to unravel for Virtus.pro. He finished with an 11/11/11 KDA. In Game 3 Ramzes played Morphling, taking control of the game extremely quickly and never letting his foot off the gas for a moment. There was no answer to his burst damage, and he was too slippery for Newbee to reliably deal with in fights. He finished with a 14/1/10 KDA.
Comes back after Game 1 to crush paiN
April 27, 2018
Ramzes finished with a 43/4/27 overall KDA in a 2-1 win against paiN Gaming in the group stages of EPICENTER XL.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes played a very good Morphling in Game 1 but couldn't carry completely on his own. He just didn't have the damage to burst down paiN's heroes in the late game and not even the power of Morphling could keep him alive against all their focus fire. He finished with an 11/3/10 KDA. Ramzes played Morphling again in Game 2, striking back with a vengeance against paiN. He played perfectly this time, making Game 1 look like Virtus.pro was just taunting paiN. Ramzes finished with a 12/0/7 KDA, taking a swift 22-minute win. In Game 3 Ramzes played Phantom Assassin, repeating his dominant Game 2 performance. He once again spent the majority of the game farming heroes on the way to another swift and one-sided win. Ramzes finished with a 20/1/10 KDA.
Dominant performance from the Virtus.pro star
April 6, 2018
Ramzes styled on Vici Gaming in Virtus.pro's win at the Dota Asia Championships 2018. The Russian star finished with a KDA of 10/2/6.
ANALYSIS
It was a happy game for Ramzes as he got his favorite Broodmother in a very well-drafted game. His laning against eLeVeN's Batrider earned him the majority of the farm. His five-minute Medallion of Courage and 12-minute Orchid of Malevolence made him a one-man army very early on against Vici Gaming. With 10 kills to his name, Ramzes did whatever he wanted in the clean win.
Advances to take on Vici Gaming at DAC 2018
April 5, 2018
Ramzes finished with an 8/1/17 KDA on Lifestealer in a win against Evil Geniuses at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes finished a very quick Radiance this game, completing it by 18 minutes. This item lead to a huge fight win for Virtus.pro that started their snowball to victory. There was no good answer to Ramzes' evasion on EG, and the impact in had on fights was massive. Ramzes was effectively shutting down two of EG's cores, while still bringing a lot to the table himself.
Tough loss to rivals Team Liquid
April 4, 2018
Ramzes finished with an 18/9/18 overall KDA in a 0-2 loss to Team Liquid at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes played Lifestealer in Game 1. After losing two lanes of barracks to a ferocious Liquid push, Ramzes and VP won a series of impressive fights that let them hold on for almost 50 minutes. Ramzes' damage when he was allowed to latch on to a target was impressive, but in the end, Liquid were able to outmaneuver VP and take the game. Ramzes finished with a 13/4/6 KDA. In Game 2 Ramzes played Terrorblade. He managed to keep his team in the game with his damage, but there was just too much for him to do on his own. As the team's only source of major physical damage, most of Liquid's damage and control was focused on him in the late game. There were just not enough tools on VP to keep Ramzes alive through all that, and he finished with a 5/5/12 KDA.
"Interesting" game from Virtus.pro's young carry
April 1, 2018
Ramzes played carry Omniknight in a grueling win vs Team Secret at DAC 2018. He finished with a 9/4/22 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Despite getting off to an insane non-Alchemist net worth lead, Ramzes was not very effective in fights. This game really showcased why Omniknight is not the best position one carry. He struggled to actually get into the fights, even with double the net worth of Secret's cores at one point in the game. He slowly transitioned into more of a support role as the game dragged on, letting 9pahsa's Enchantress take over the carry role to ensure a win.
Cannot be blamed for the loss
March 5, 2018
Ramzes tried to carry his team to a win as Virtus.Pro lost to OpTic Gaming 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. Ramzes finished with a 12/5/4 KDA.
ANALYSIS
It was clear that VP was the better team in this match, and it was also clear that nobody had a better slaying ability in this match than Ramzes. Accounting for 12 of his team's 21 kills, Ramzes looked great on Juggernaut, single-handedly snowballing a lead for his team. Nobody else on his team even had more than three kills. However, everything can slip away in a blink of an eye in Dota as VP collapsed late to give up the win.
