Impressive individual play not enough
February 3, 2018
fn played his best in a 2-1 loss to Mineski at the fourth Starladder Invitational. He finished with an overall KDA of 19/9/13.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 fn played Terrorblade. This was a very challenging game for fn. The rest of his lanes went poorly, and the weight of the game quickly shifted onto fn. He dealt considerable damage in fights, but was Empire's only threat which meant Mineski could focus all their efforts on just him. fn finished with a 2/3/2 KDA. fn played a great Queen of Pain in Game 2. He dominated his lane and was able to snowball this into a huge lead in the mid-game that carried Empire through to a win. His mobility in fights was crucial, letting him burst down targets quickly and without risk to himself. fn finished with a 14/2/8 KDA. In Game 3 fn had a rough Medusa game. The pace of the game was very similar to Game 1. fn got decent farm, but the game fell entirely on his shoulders after a certain point. He was able to put up a good fight again, but it wasn't enough to stop all of Mineski. He finished with a 3/4/3 KDA.
Great Game 2 not enough to carry the series
February 3, 2018
Ghostik struggled in a 2-1 loss to Mineski at the fourth Starladder Invitational. He finished with an overall KDA of 6/17/22.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ghostik played an underwhelming Nature's Prophet. He didn't accomplish much all game, either in terms of turning up to early fights or split pushing. Without an early objective lead, Nature's Prophet felt very weak in this game. Ghostik finished with a 2/7/5 KDA. In Game 2 Ghostik played Beastmaster, redeeming his weak Game 1 performance. Ghostik was all over the place this game, both finding solo kills and helping set up for fights. The vision and burst that Ghostik provided was a huge part of Empire's victory in Game 2. He finished with a 3/3/14 KDA. In Game 3 Ghostik played Axe. He got off to a nice start, but things quickly unraveled as the lanes broke down. He struggled to initiate, and even when he could his team struggled to keep up with him. Ghostik finished with a 1/7/3 KDA.
Eliminated from Starladder in a rough loss
February 3, 2018
yoky finished a rough 2-1 loss to Mineski at the fourth Starladder Invitational with an overall KDA of 5/20/26.
ANALYSIS
yoky started the series off with a rough Sand King game. He finished up a Blink Dagger by 16 minutes, but this didn't do much to improve yoky or Empire's game. yoky died extremely often, and was focused down in fights by Mineski. He finished with a 1/11/8 KDA. yoky played Kunkka in Game 2. His initiation in this game was much better than Game 1, setting up Empire for many fight wins that lead to valuable objective kills. He also dealt nice damage with his spells, usually hitting at least two or three Mineski heroes. He finished with a 2/4/15 KDA. In Game 3 yoky played Earth Spirit. His early movements were nice, but he couldn't keep up that momentum as the game went on. He finished with a 2/5/3 KDA.
Rough series for the Empire support
February 3, 2018
Miposhka had a tough time in Empire's 1-2 loss to Mineski at the fourth Starladder Invitational. He finished with an overall KDA of 9/17/23.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miposhka played Disruptor. He made some nice plays in the early stages of the game, but Emprie were no match for Mineski's teamfight as the game went on. He finished with a 3/5/6 KDA. In Game 2 Miposhka played Shadow Shaman. His positioning in this game was better, allowing him to get a lot of use from his disables and Serpent Wards. He finished with a 5/3/12 KDA. In Game 3 Miposhka played Disruptor again, but was unable to improve on his Game 1 performance. He finished with a 1/9/5 KDA.
Tough series for Empire's captain
January 6, 2018
Miposhka struggled in both games of a 0-2 loss to OG at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 5/18/26.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miposhka had a tough time on Rubick. He played pretty well in the early game, securing some nice kills on s4's Brewmaster, but the true problem lay in the other two lanes. In mid and late-game engagements, Miposhka couldn't do anything against OG. He finished with a 3/9/11 KDA. Game 2 was equally rough for Miposhka. This time he was playing Disruptor, but he couldn't get much done for Empire past the early stages of the game. As things progressed, he started dying early and often in fights. He finished with a 2/9/15 KDA.
