Shut down by Evil Geniuses
August 23, 2018
Ramzes was outclassed by Evil Geniuses at The International 2018. The young star finished with a KDA of 15/13/12.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes played Necrophos in the first game of the series. He had a terrible time in lane against s4's Pugna due to his high magic damage output. He itemized very defensively, but he still died seven times in the match. He was the worst performing core in terms of hero damage in the lost. In Game 2, he played Ursa in the mid lane against SumaiL's Alchemist. He had a successful laning stage and had a Blink Dagger at the timing mark. His 11 kills were the highest on his team, but as the game went on he was just easily kited by EG.
Shows off deadly potential
August 23, 2018
Ramzes rediscovered his dominant form in the elimination match against OpTic. The carry finished with a KDA of 33/14/33.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Ramzes played the Gyrocopter in the safelane. With the help of Rodjer's Io, he manage to pick up an important early kill against 33's Necrophos. His five kills were well below what VP needed to pick up the win. In Game 2, he played his signature Broodmother. Ramzes shifted over to the offlane but still managed four early kills against Optic. His quick Diffusal Blade and Black King Bar allowed VP to take a big lead coming into the 30-minute mark. In Game 3, Necrophos was Ramzes's choice. His aggression was punished in the laning phase as he usually traded his life whenever he got a kill. However, when Ramzes managed to survive one big fight on a sliver of health and cast all of his spells, Virtus.pro used it to completely swing the game in their favor.
Struggles in both games of a loss
August 18, 2018
Ramzes finished a 2-0 loss to Vici Gaming in the group stages at The International 8 with an overall KDA of 8/13/21.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ramzes got a chance to play Broodmother but was very well countered and shut down by Vici. He got handled in lane by Ori's Kunkka, and never got the chance to take over the game like Broodmother does in a better game. He finished with a 1/7/5 KDA. In Game 2 Ramzes had a bit more success with Bloodseeker but wasn't nearly scary enough to shut down Vici's Io and Gyrocopter combination. He finished with a 7/6/16 KDA.
Crushes Newbee in two wins
August 17, 2018
Ramzes finished two very good Weaver games in the group stages at The International 8 with an overall KDA of 26/4/26.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes began the series with an explosive game. His mobility made him almost impossible for Newbee to lock down and kill, giving Ramzes the freedom to do practically whatever he wanted in fights. All this mobility and freedom allowed Ramzes to rack up 15 kills in a long but convincing win. Game 2 was more of the same for Ramzes. He once again had almost complete immunity in fights, and was constantly zipping around and cleaning up kill after kill all game long.
Runs over OpTic in Game 2
August 15, 2018
Ramzes finished Virtus.pro's 2-0 victory over OpTic during The International 2018 group stages with an average KDA of 11/4/21.
ANALYSIS
Ramzes managed to play intelligently in Game 1 as Spectre, despite getting off to a rocky start. He found his farm when he could in safe spaces and let his team hold off OpTic long enough for him to come online. In Game 2, Ramzes took over from the beginning as Broodmother. He completely dominated CCnC in the middle lane, and the game just snowballed out of control from there. Ramzes recorded 23 kills between the two matches.
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.
