Evil Geniuses
Tough series for the veteran
August 10, 2017
Arteezy was effectively shut down in Evil Geniuses' 2-0 loss to Team Empire in the lower bracket of The International 2017. He finished with a final KDA of 6/10/19.
ANALYSIS
Playing as Phantom Lancer in Game 1, Arteezy was heavily countered by Team Empire's lineup. Whether it was Sven's cleave, Ember Spirit's area-of-effect damage, or Earthshaker's Echo Slam, Arteezy couldn't join a battle without making things worse for his own squad. He finished Game 1 with a KDA of 2/8/9. In Game 2 he played as Terrorblade. Working well with Universe on Nature's Prophet, they did a great job early on pushing towers and taking objectives. Unfortunately for Arteezy, he was again heavily countered by Team Empire's lineup, and was unable to dominate teamfights during the late game. He finished Game 2 with a KDA of 4/2/10.
Capped off group stages in impressive fashion
August 6, 2017
Arteezy destroyed everything as Evil Geniuses swept Fnatic 2-0 in the group stages of The International 7. Arteezy finished the series with a 16/1/18 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Another series against a bottom of the bracket opponent, another incredible blowout. Arteezy has fed on the lower tier opponents all throughout the group stages, this series finding 16 kills to only one death. As one of the most individually skilled players in the world, Arteezy showed great team chemistry and communication through groups. The great play earned EG a spot in the upper bracket of the Main Event.
Can't be stopped
August 3, 2017
Arteezy played perfectly as Evil Geniuses complete the 2-0 sweep over Team Empire in group stages of The International 7. Arteezy finished the series with a 21/5/32 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Coming off a slow day 1, Arteezy played inspired to finally capture a sweep for his team. Once the game started, the sweep seemed inevitable with how perfectly in sync EG was with one another. Arteezy stuck to his signature Lycan for both games and could not be contained. Lycan is a solid comfort pick for Arteezy, but he can sure do damage with it when it is left up.
Long-range Lone Druid in Game 2
August 3, 2017
Arteezy finished Evil Geniuses's 1-1 draw with Team Liquid during the group stage of The International 7 with a final KDA of 12/5/20.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy played a safe-lane Venomancer in Game 1, where he endured a laning stage with no support. Dying more often than usual, Arteezy was only a walking ultimate by the end. In Game 2, Arteezy played a safe lane Lone Druid. After struggling to gain the edge in his lane, Arteezy itemized for ranged damage rather than investing in his Spirit Bear. Outranging Team Liquid, EG was able to even the series to keep in the upper end of Group A.
Unconventional picks in 1-1 draw
August 3, 2017
Arteezy finished Evil Geniuses' 1-1 draw with Invictus Gaming Vitality with a final KDA of 3/6/12
ANALYSIS
Arteezy played Necrophos and Visage in Games 1 and 2 of the Bo2 series, playing in the safe lane both times. In Game 1, Arteezy was involved in only a handful of kills as Evil Geniuses clocked in victorious at just under 17 minutes. In Game 2, Arteezy was unable to master the carry Visage with the help of a support Batrider. Despite the draw, it still looked as though EG was trying new things on Day 1.
Hot and cold in the opening round
August 2, 2017
Arteezy peaked early as Evil Geniuses split the series 1-1 with TNC Pro Team in the Group Stages of The International 7. Arteezy finished the series with a 5/6/26 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Game 1 was absolute vintage Arteezy as he put together a 4/0/18 line to lead his team to a commanding victory. Whether it was the adrenaline going away or just being outplayed, TNC took Game 2 as Arteezy was picked off six times. EG is known for experimenting early in TI, so maybe this was not the best we could have seen from the juggernaut squad.
Can't finish with Chaos Knight
July 6, 2017
Arteezy finished Evil Geniuses' 1-0 loss to Newbee during the group stages of MDL 2017 with a final KDA of 11/11/5
ANALYSIS
Arteezy played Chaos Knight in a dual safe lane with zai's Venomancer. Without a true support in lane, Arteezy suffered against Newbee's aggressive tri lane. Though he managed to find his farm, Arteezy lacked good follow up from his teammates to tap into the power of the Chaos Knight pickup.
Awkward Venomancer performance
July 6, 2017
Arteezy finished Evil Geniuses' 1-0 victory over Vici Gaming during the group stages of MDL 2017 with a final KDA of 2/6/14.
ANALYSIS
Despite his low KDA, Arteezy's Venomancer posted a final damage score of 21.2k, outdamaging the enemy Chaos Knight, Legion Commander and Phantom Assassin. After losing an easy fight in their own jungle, Vici Gaming threw in the towel, making EG more survivors than victors.
Pulls off the Drow strategy
July 5, 2017
Arteezy finished Evil Geniuses 1-0 victory over OG during the group stages of Mars Dota2 League 2017 with a KDA of 12/1/19
ANALYSIS
Flying high from the get go, Arteezy dominated his lane against s4's Faceless Void. Never worried nor wanting, Arteezy went on to dominate the game alongside SumaiL and give EG a swift victory.
Tough game for Evil Geniuses' carry
July 5, 2017
Arteezy had a rough game in a loss to LGD in the MDL 2017 group stages. He finished with a 4/5/1 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy played Lifestealer. He had a pretty uneventful game all things considered. Despite having multiple Infest vehicles to enter fights, he couldn't really do much against the powerhouse that was Ame's Chaos Knight. With no ability to clear illusions, Arteezy was helpless against Phantasm and crumbled quickly to Ame.
Steady showing from EG star
July 5, 2017
Arteezy played a good, steady game for Evil Geniuses as they easily defeated Clutch Gamers in MDL 2017. The popular carry finished with a KDA of 9/2/14.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy was on Lycan in the lone game of the matchup. He easily won the early game with his supports. This allowed him an excellent economy game picking up an 11-minute Armlet of Mordiggian and 14-minute Mask of Madness. His movements around the map were crisp, as he did the most tower damage in the game (7,700) and racked up nine kills for himself.
Put together a dominant series
June 11, 2017
Arteezy could not be stopped as Evil Geniuses defeated Team Secret 2-0 in the Epicenter semifinals. Arteezy finished with a 16/5/27 KDA and destroyed eight towers, six barracks and two Roshans in the series.
ANALYSIS
Throughout the entire game, Arteezy was having a positive impact on the game and helped push his team to victory. If he needed to fight, he could as he found 16 kills while only dying twice. When he wasn't fighting, he was leading his team in objectives to clear the way for the win. Arteezy and Suma1L are the dream duo for EG and are playing like it. They are on the way to the grand finals of Epicenter.
Forgetabble performance from EG's star carry
June 11, 2017
Arteezy couldn't get going as Evil Geniuses fall to Team Liquid in the Epicenter grand finals. The popular carry finished with a KDA of 11/16/19.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy kicked off the series with the meta-popular Bristleback in Game 1. Despite on the tankiest hero in the game, Arteezy died four times and was often biting off more than he can chew. He didn't prioritize farming and Liquid capitalized on Arteezy's lapse. He was Ursa on his only win of the series in Game 2. He didn't have the best early game, but he turned around with good his teammates in the mid game as he racked up eight kills after his 18-minute Blink Dagger. In Game 3, his risky Drow Ranger pickup put EG in a bad spot as Liquid punished him greatly by killing him five times. He didn't pick up a single kill and only brought a little over 100 tower damage in the game. In the final game of the series, his Razor made way too many mistakes. He got over eager even though Liquid was more than ready for him. He had the highest last hits in the game, but it didn't translate too much afterwards.
Unstoppable carrying in 2-0 sweep
June 9, 2017
Arteezy looked very impressive in Evil Geniuses' 2-0 sweep against Clutch Gamers in Epicenter. He finished with a final KDA of 19/6/16.
ANALYSIS
Arteezy went as Venomancer in Game 1, and decided to jungle right off the bat. Power-farming a Veil and a Scepter in 17 minutes, he provided an enormous amount of magical damage for EG well before anyone on Clutch Gamers had a BKB ready. Combined with Chronosphere and Ice Blast, Clutch Gamers had no response to EG's teamfighting potential. In Game 2 Arteezy went as Arc Warden and completely dominated the field. Ending with a net worth of 24,482 in just over 30 minutes, Clutch Gamers had no way of handling Arteezy, who was able to pick off heroes anywhere on the map with his Tempest Double. He ended this game with a KDA of 15/4/12, and dished out 32,971 damage.
Cool, calm, and collected in an impressive win
June 7, 2017
Arteezy looked solid in Evil Geniuses' 2-0 win over Virtus.pro on the final day of Epicenter group stages. He finished with a 12/5/19 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Arteezy played Venomancer. He played a great game overall, only giving up a single death. He was able to get many kills in lane, which set Evil Geniuses up for a fantastic mid game. They were able to continue this snowball and secure a very fast 24-minute win. Arteezy finished with a 7/1/7 KDA. In Game 2 Arteezy played Venomancer again. He didn't manage to dominate in the same way as Game 1, but this was still a solid performance by Arteezy. When he died in fights, he almost always got off his spells before his death. He finished with a 5/4/12 KDA.
