Keeps the fight going
June 13, 2018
Diya did his best to keep his team from failing too hard in a 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Gladiators.
ANALYSIS
While a lot of the team feels as though they've lost hope in getting a single win this season after the mishap against Florida, Diya is going strong and every map feels like he's doing his best to carry his team, alebit to no avail. His Widowmaker play was solid but just not enough with the state of the team.
In the face of Titans
May 27, 2018
Diya did as well as he could during a 4-0 loss to the New York Excelsior on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Diya is certainly getting better but going against the Excelsior puts Diya in a position where he's completely outclassed by Libero and Saebyeolbe. This shouldn't deter him from continuing to improve, however, since the Excelsior DPS would make most players in the league look poor in comparison to begin with.
Continues to improve
May 26, 2018
Diya looked really good despite a 4-0 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion on Thursday night.
ANALYSIS
Diya has really come into his own right as a proper DPS player for his team. While he used to be seen as a liability, his Widowmaker has been very good as well as his Tracer, responsible for piercing a hole through the enemy defense. While the team didn't win any maps this time around, Diya made a lot of advancements possible with his increasing level of play.
Inconsistent depending on what he plays
May 20, 2018
Diya fell flat on his face a few times during a 3-1 loss to Los Angeles Valiant.
ANALYSIS
While Diya did well on Widowmaker earlier in the week against the Dallas Fuel, he showed his flaws again in this series to the Valiant. Maybe because the Valiant are tougher opponents, his Tracer was significantly more cautious than any other DPS in the league. He played scared. Diya definitely has shown the potential of his skill ceiling but he needs the confidence to do so.
Keeps the team moving forward
May 17, 2018
Diya's Widowmaker kept the team as afloat as possible during a 3-1 loss to the Dallas Fuel.
ANALYSIS
Diya was starting to get pretty good at Widowmaker towards the end of stage 3, but his Widowmaker play in the series against Dallas was almost inspiring. He made lots of mistakes, but also made huge plays, won duels with Dallas's Taimou, and had a huge impact on the series.
Diya's Widowmaker shined
May 6, 2018
Diya showed massive improvement during 3-1 loss to the the New York Excelsior on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Diya's Widowmaker was impressive going against the New York Excelsior. Diya actually won a few Widowmaker duels with New York's Pine, which is shocking given the difference in the matchup. Diya may yet become a big threat for other teams.
Changes heroes too often
April 27, 2018
Diya's attempt at flexibility hurt himself in the end during 1-3 loss to Boston Uprising on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
A flexible DPS is definitely something everyone wants for their team, but there's a point to which switching heroes too often hurts you more than it helps. When you switch heroes, you lose your current ultimate charge meter and you've got to build it up again, making it a waste. Diya died too often and was far too ineffective to have anything good said about his play, other than some great Widowmaker snipes on Route 66.
Offense outweighs his defense
April 19, 2018
Diya shows improvement in 1-3 loss to the Seoul Dynasty on Wednesday Night.
ANALYSIS
Diya's decision making in-game has been getting better every series, even to the point where, with the rest of his team, he helped force Dynasty DPS Fleta off of Widowmaker for a short time. One of the Dragon's biggest problems is that their attack tends to be great on maps, but their defense is lacking. Diya is a big contributor to both, where he knows how to attack, but his positioning on defense is still lacking.
Too impatient to make an impact
April 12, 2018
Diya had some great moments, but was nowhere near good enough in the 0-4 loss to the Los Angeles Gladiators on Wednesday
ANALYSIS
Diya's ability as a DPS was a lot better than expected but suffered from one huge problem, which was swapping heroes way too many times in matches. While a lot of DPS get praise for being flexible, Diya swapped so often he was just wasting built-up energy charge for his ultimates to make a real impact on the game.
Flanks aren't enough to stop the Gladiators
January 11, 2018
Diya couldn't make his plays count during the Shanghai Dragons' 0-4 loss to the Los Angeles Gladiators on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Diya spent a lot of time on Tracer during this series, but he never managed to make a sizable impact for the Dragons. He started flanking late to get a comeback started for his team, yet the plays never fully materialized. The blame certainly doesn't fall solely on Diya, however. This Dragons team looked disjointed and out of sorts as a whole all series long and will need to make some major adjustments to right the ship later in the week.
Consistent picks weren't enough for the win
December 9, 2017
Diya failed to put enough pressure on Boston Uprising in Shanghai Dragons' 2-3 Friday loss for the OWL Preseason
ANALYSIS
Despite continually picking people off before fights even started, Diya failed to keep pace with Uprising's cohesive firepower. Diya showed his hitscan prowess through sniping Boston's members from atop the buildings in Junkertown in Game 1 as Widowmaker, and again when he single-handedly gunned down the Uprising as McCree on Ilios in Game 3. Diya never failed to kill at least one member of Uprising in every fight, but Uprising always managed to kite or fight back against Shanghai's ensuing push. This was exemplified on Numbani, where Diya's Soldier: 76 was given free reign of the point but ended up having to fall back after Uprising took down two of his teammates. Going forward, Diya is the Dragon to watch, as he made some impressive plays that were unfortunately not enough for Dragons to come out on top.
