Team Empire
Russia
Never got going
May 1, 2018
Yoky crumbled against Mineski at Epicenter XL. The support finished with a KDA of 3/15/19.
ANALYSIS
Yoky was relied upon by Empire to create the early space for his cores. However, his games on Lesrac and Slardar couldn't provide the plays that his team needed. He actually had a decent amount of items across both games but his actual impact was sorely lacking for Team Empire.
Rude awakening for pub star
May 1, 2018
Naive had a rough series for Team Empire against Mineski at Epicenter XL. The young pub star from Kazakhstan with a KDA of 9/7/12.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Naive brought his talents to the safelane with Troll Warlord. His laning stage was mostly uncontested by Mineski thanks to his supports to get a good Battle Fury timing. He was consistently at the top of the networth chart for majority of the game. But two really bad solo deaths from him allowed Mineski to sweep the rug under Empire. In Game 2, he moved to the midlane with his Queen of Pain. But he was outplayed by Moon's Death Prophet. He couldn't recover from his poor start as he struggled to get involved for his team with a kill participation of four out of his team's 12 total kills.
Impressive Legion Commander game was for naught
May 1, 2018
Ghostik had an excellent series opener but couldn't sustain the form in the series as Team Empire lose against Mineski in Epicenter XL. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 3/12/14.
ANALYSIS
Ghostik's Legion Commander was looking very good in the series opener. His 11-minute Blink Dagger allowed him to accumulate a lot of Duel Damage early. He then had over 80 Duel Victory damage at the 20-minute mark. But key pick offs against his teammates made it all for naught as Mineski blitz thru Empire in the mid game. In Game 2, Ghostik was sadly a non-factor for Empire on his Magnus. He was dominated by Mushi from the laning phase and never got going. The epic Reverse Polarity that his team desperately needed never happened.
Lacked help from his team
May 1, 2018
Fn's gutsy performance for Team Empire wasn't enough against Mineski at Epicenter XL. The mid laner finished with a KDA of 14/7/7.
ANALYSIS
Fn went with Lina in the series opener. His laning stage against Moon's Dragon Knight didn't really work out too well for him. His harassing wasn't really forcing Moon to miss crucial gold or experience. Fn became much more effective for Empire after getting his Shadow Blade. He was constantly on the hunt as he picked up seven kills for Empire. In Game 2, fn shifted over to the safe lane carry role with Juggernaut. He didn't get much help from his supports in the first five minutes and was then punished by Iceiceice's Tidehunter and Jabz's Nature's Prophet. His supports finally came to his aid and helped salvage his lane. He finally got his farm going and got a 17-minute Manta Style but it wasn't enough to fight off the well-oiled Mineski machine.
Gets his competitive debut on Team Empire
April 16, 2018
In a release on its website today, Empire confirmed that the rookie Naive would be joining the team to replace Nix in the carry position.
ANALYSIS
Naive has never played competitively, and is just 17 years old, but is currently the number seven ranked player on the European Dota 2 leaderboards. The leaderboards have been a valuable place to source talent from in the past, leading to careers like gh and Miracle's, to name a few.
