Under performs on signature heroes
October 22, 2017
YapzOr finished Team Secret's 2-1 loss to Immortals during the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor with a final KDA of 12/13/38.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 YapzOr played his signature Zeus support, which combined well with Ace's middle lane Meepo, enabling plenty of multi-kills with Thundergod's Wrath and Poof inside a Wukong's Command. In Game 2, YapzOr played Zeus again, but without much to combo with, Secret was undone by an aggressive assault by Immortals. In Game 3 YapzOr turned to another signature hero, Rubick. Secret was prepared for another highly aggressive strategy from Immortals but it never came. Immortals were patient and thus Rubick had few opportunities to steal high impact spells and turn the game.
Progressively gets worse as game goes on
October 22, 2017
MidOne finished Team Secret's 2-1 loss to Immortals during the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor with a final KDA of 11/14/31.
ANALYSIS
MidOne played Monkey King in Game 1, with great success in the offlane. He synchronized well with Fata's Puck whose Dream Coil kept the enemy inside his Wukong's Command. In Game 2, MidOne's Necrophos held his own in the middle lane but was unable to deal with QO and Febby's hyper-aggressive Monkey King and Nightstalker combination. In Game 3, MidOne lost the middle lane as Puck and was late to most of his major items. As the game progressed, he became less and less impactful and Secret's failure to take high ground was eventually their undoing.
Can't overcome Immortals' aggression
October 22, 2017
Fata finished Team Secret's 2-1 loss to Immortals during the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor with a final KDA of 11/18/20.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata's Puck struggled in lane but quickly picked up on the back of Ace's success as Meepo. His AOE lockdown from Dream Coil was heavily utilized to trap Immortals within Wukong's Command. In Game 2, Fata's Nature's Prophet was tormented by Monkey King and Nightstalker. Despite drafting a Spirit Breaker to keep Fata safe, Team Secret was unable to keep them from dismantling their strategy. In Game 3, Fata played a safe lane Necrophos. He lost his lane but was able to keep himself alive during the fights until later in the game as Secret was unable to break high ground.
Dominates in Game 1
October 22, 2017
Ace finished Team Secret's 2-1 loss to Immortals during the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor with a final KDA of 17/14/20.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ace caught Immortals by surprise with a last pick, middle lane Meepo. He managed a draw in the middle lane against MP's Viper and went on to dominate the game. In Game 2, Ace managed to keep Immortal's Monkey King in check during the laning stage as Bloodseeker in a tri-lane. However, once the laning stage ended Secret was torn asunder by frequent and varying ganks from Monkey King and Nightstalker. In Game 3, Ace played Terrorblade in a dual off-lane with YapzOr's Rubick. Unable to push into Immortals lineup, Ace became fairly useless by the end of the game.
Did the little things for LGD
October 22, 2017
Yao wasn't at his best but LGD still swept Evil Geniuses in the PGL Minor. The veteran support finished with a KDA of 6/13/35.
ANALYSIS
Yao kicked off the series with a roaming Earth Spirit. He secured early games for his team but he as often tried to do too much as he had some unforced mistakes which resulted in death. He was however involved in 20 of LGD's 32 kills. In Game 2, Yao's Sand King wasn't as explosive but he still got the job done. He always tried to go for multiple hero Burrowed Strikes which really helped his team. Unfortunately, he got a very late 18-minute Blink Dagger but it didn't matter as LGD got the easy win.
Styled on SumaiL
October 22, 2017
Maybe completely styled on Evil Geniuses in his team's victory at the PGL Minor. The explosive midlaner finished with a KDA of 23/5/18.
ANALYSIS
Maybe completely outdueled Sumail for the majority of the series. His opening game on Ursa dominated the early game. He was picking up kills left and right as he snowballed in perfect fashion. He picked up ten kills and only died once in Game 1. His follow-up game on Mirana was once again highlight-reel worthy. He didn't dominate the early game but he quickly picked up the pace in the mid-game. His Sacred Arrows were hitting at crazy moments and he really set the tempo for his team with 13 kills.
Shows off his versatility
October 22, 2017
fy had some great plays for LGD as they sweep Evil Geniuses in the PGL Minor. The charismatic player finished with a KDA of 12/8/31.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, fy went with his favorite Enchantress in the offlane. He contested the lane very well thanks to his Untouchable and impeccable micro. He got a nine-minute Drums of Endurance and he controlled the game for LGD. fy rained heavy damage on EG for majority of the game on his way to nine kills. In Game 2, fy's Batrider wasn't as dominating. He was boxed-out early and struggled to get any good farm. But he still got a 10-minute Blink Dagger. His Flaming Lassos and scouting allowed LGD to take control of the tight game.
Stepped up against Evil Geniuses
October 22, 2017
Ame had a very solid series for LGD in their win against Evil Geniuses in the PGL Minor. The young carry finished with a KDA of 12/7/28.
ANALYSIS
He kicked off the series with his signature Chaos Knight. His early game went disastrously for him and he was forced to a 19-minute Armlet of Mordiggian. He bucked up the slow start by working together with his team and initiating well. Game 2 was a better showing for Ame's Terrorblade. He farmed up the early game and got key items at good times. He was always rotating and pushing at the right time.
Struggles yet again
October 22, 2017
Crit was the weakest performer for Evil Geniuses in their loss to LGD at the PGL Minor. The support player finished with a KDA of 6/19/26.
ANALYSIS
Crit started the series on his well-known Io. He roamed alongside Fear in the early game. Despite the synergy between Spirit Breaker and Io, LGD easily dealt with their early aggression. Crit was killed 10 times and was mostly just ineffective for his team. In Game 2, Crit switched it up with yet another signature hero in Earth Spirit. But his rotations did not set the tempo for his team early on. He struggled to get anything done and his team suffered for it.
Good performance in losing effort
October 22, 2017
Arteezy was the best Evil Geniuses player in their lost against LGD at the PGL Minor. The popular carry finished with a KDA of 12/7/17.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy tried his luck with Lifestealer in the opening game of the series. He was contested easily by Fy's Enchantress and couldn't get super easy farm. His 13-minute Armlet of Mordiggian wasn't terrible but it really could have been better for him. He also went with a utility Heaven's Halberd and his damage output was decisively lacking afterward. In Game 2, he was again Lifestealer. He had a much better showing and he picked up a 10-minute Hand of Midas. His nine kills were the highest on his team but he needed more help from his team.
