Evil Geniuses
Quickly drops to the lower bracket
February 20, 2018
Arteezy finished with a 5/3/4 KDA in a quick loss to LGD at ESL One Katowice.
Arteezy played well on Razor, but couldn't deliver the damage that his team needed by himself. He could stand against the LGD cores on his own, but his team was often quick to fall around him in fights. When he did die, especially in the later stages of the game, it came at great cost to EG.
Harsh loss for EG's star carry
January 27, 2018
Arteezy finished a rough 2-0 loss to Liquid at ESL One Genting with a 6/8/5 overall KDA.
In Game 1 Arteezy played Storm Spirit. He got off to a nice start, but it was unfortunately all for nothing. The rest of EG were absolutely obliterated by Liquid, and as soon as the lanes broke down Arteezy was also on the receiving end of this punishment. His lead was shut down hard and he was given neither the time nor the space to recover. He finished with a 3/3/1 KDA. Arteezy played Terrorblade in Game 2. This was another rough game for Arteezy, who found himself heavily pressured in lane and not given the space to catch up nearly enough. It was impossible for Arteezy to close the gap on Liquid's Sniper in fights, making his damage extremely ineffective. He finished with a 3/5/4 KDA.
Bounces back after mentally taxing Game 1
January 26, 2018
Arteezy played an excellent series in a 2-0 win against at ESL One Genting. He finished with an overall KDA of 13/7/21.
Arteezy played Tinker in Game 1. Despite having a really rough early game, this was a great showcase of Arteezy's mental fortitude. He managed to bounce back in relatively good time, keeping his deaths to a minimum after a hectic lane phase. He finished with a 7/6/14 KDA, but five of these deaths were before 15 minutes. Arteezy played Gyrocopter in Game 2. Apart from a single death in the lane phase, Arteezy played perfectly in this game. His positioning in fights was great, letting him get off all his damage reliably. This was too much for the haggard lineup to deal with, leading to a swift EG win. Arteezy finished with a 6/1/7 KDA.
Impressive Storm Spirit game
January 25, 2018
Arteezy had another solid series for Evil Geniuses at ESL One Genting. The popular carry finished with a KDA of 17/2/22.
Arteezy played Lifestealer in the first game of the series. His game was generally quiet but efficient in the farming department. He didn't really have as super great Infest bomb host in the game, so he decided to just keep farming. His 1/1/11 record wasn't super eye-popping, but he made a lot of smart decisions in the game. In Game 2, Arteezy shone brighter on the Storm Spirit. He was playing very aggressively on the back of his early Bloodstone and Repels from SumaiL. Arteezy often picked off supports and was rarely caught out of position against TNC.
Poor start to ESL One Genting
January 23, 2018
Arteezy finished with a 3/9/2 KDA in a rough loss to Na'Vi at ESL One Genting.
Arteezy played Juggernaut in a one-sided loss to Na'Vi. The game was action-packed from the start, and Arteezy often found himself dying in fights. His magic immunity from Blade Flurry wasn't nearly enough to protect him from the massive amount of teamfight on the Na'Vi side.
Solid individual performance in a losing effort
January 5, 2018
Arteezy played well despite losing out 1-2 in the end to Team Secret at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 26/12/24.
In Game 1 Arteezy played Sven, moving back to a more traditional carry after a rough first day. He played very well in this game, giving EG a fighting chance after they fell behind and actually pulling EG into the lead at some points. Unfortunately for EG, Arteezy was about 90 percent of their fighting strength, so when Secret did bring him down it was disastrous. He finished with a 7/5/4 KDA. In Game 2 Arteezy played Juggernaut. He didn't miss a beat from Game 1, continuing to play very well. Fortunately for EG, the rest of the team was on the same page this game. With his teammates also able to fight well, Arteezy totally took over the game. He finished with a 7/1/7 KDA. In Game 3 Arteezy played Shadow Fiend, returning to his pool of traditional middle lane heroes. He started out well, but in the mid game he was constantly dying in fights. EG were getting trades in exchange for him, but these deaths seriously hurt Arteezy's item progression. He simply couldn't stand up to the carries of Secret in the late game. He finished with a 12/6/13 KDA.
Will need to adjust to playing mid
January 4, 2018
Arteezy did not dominate like he usually does as Evil Geniuses lost to CompLexity Gaming in the Group Stages of Captain's Draft 4. Arteezy finished with a 6/5/2 KDA.
Arteezy seems to be able to bring the pain to his opponent wherever he plays. Now in mid, Arteezy has to alter his play a little to help EG out. Playing Shadow Fiend, Arteezy started out well but fell off as EG's lead disappeared. Arteezy will need to rebound quickly.
Looks like he never left the middle lane
January 4, 2018
Arteezy finished with a commanding 12/2/4 KDA against Pain Gaming at Captain's Draft 4.
Arteezy played one of his old signature heroes, Outworld Devourer, in his second professional game since returning to the middle lane. He looked very impressive in this game, completely taking over fights in the mid and later stages of the game.
Another LAN ends in disappointment
December 16, 2017
Arteezy fell flat in Evil Geniuses' 0-2 loss to OG at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 5/10/9.
In Game 1 Arteezy played Phantom Lancer but struggled to have the impact he needed to fights against OG. It became too difficult for him to close the gap on Resolut1on's Sniper, and he couldn't man up and fight the OG front line either. He finished with a 2/6/4 KDA. Game 2 was no improvement for Arteezy and EG. This time he was on Drow Ranger, getting run at for the majority of the game. OG simply had too many answers for him to handle, and his teammates were also struggling so he wasn't getting much help from them. He finished with a 3/4/5 KDA.
Solid performance secures EG a wildcard spot
December 14, 2017
Arteezy couldn't make his Lone Druid work in Game 3 but looked good otherwise against complexity. He finished the three-game series with an overall KDA of 18/8/27.
In Game 1 Arteezy played Weaver, moving around the map early and creating a lot of space for SumaiL's Medusa. Arteezy also managed to scale well into the later portions of the game, remaining a dangerous damage threat alongside SumaiL. Arteezy finished with a 9/2/12 KDA. In Game 2 Arteezy played Tiny and only built on the momentum created by EG's Game 1 win. He had a bit of a shaky start, but recovered very nicely and starting picking off complexity's supports with ease. He finished with an 8/1/12 KDA. In Game 3 Arteezy played Lone Druid. After such a strong first two games, this was an unfortunate note for Arteezy to end on. He started out with a fantastic lane phase, but couldn't do anything in the mid game with his advantage. He finished with a 1/5/3 KDA.
Does a lot of damage but comes up just short
December 13, 2017
Arteezy did everything he could in a losing effort as Evil Geniuses lost to Team Kinguin 2-1 in the Group Stages of The Summit 8. Arteezy finished with a 24/6/24 KDA in the series.
It took a game to get going, but Arteezy was able to catch fire in this game. After a Game 1 loss, Arteezy combined to go 18/4/24 over the final two games and push EG to the brink of victory. They fell just short in Game 3 as they gave away the game late, but Arteezy was not at fault. He carried as he should all series long and continues to be a solid player to plan around.
Outstanding series from EG's carry
December 2, 2017
Arteezy took over in both games of a 2-0 win over Na'Vi at the DreamLeague Season 8 Major. He finished with an overall KDA of 22/3/17.
Arteezy started out the series with a strong Luna performance. He did well for himself in lane, and was able to transition to the mid-game with only a single death and a healthy net worth lead. Once EG started to pull ahead, Arteezy became unstoppable. He finished with an 8/2/8 KDA. In Game 2 Arteezy played Gyrocopter and carried his team. He got a lot for himself in the early game, which lead to a very strong mid-game for Arteezy. His damage in fights was simply too much to handle for Na'Vi, and with Universe's Omniknight backing him up Arteezy was extremely durable. Arteezy finished with a 14/1/9 KDA.
Keeps his team's major hopes alive
December 1, 2017
Arteezy took control of both games of a 2-0 win over Infamous at the Dreamleague Season 8 Major. He finished with an overall KDA of 14/6/18.
In Game 1 Arteezy played Luna. This was a fairly straightforward game for Arteezy and the rest of EG. He farmed up in the early game, and then grouped up with his team as they pushed down towers as five. The EG teamfight was too much for Infamous to handle, especially once Arteezy finished his Black King Bar. He finished with a 5/3/10 KDA. In Game 2 Arteezy played Drow Ranger and executed it extremely well. He did a good job in lane, and his positioning in fights kept him alive through some very chaotic engagements. EG was able to close out another quick win in Game 2 to seal the series in their favor. Arteezy finished this game with a 9/3/8 KDA.
Back in business
October 27, 2017
Arteezy stepped up in the Evil Geniuses victory against Fnatic in ESL One Hamburg. The beloved carry finished with a KDA of 14/3/14.
He kicked off the series with the forgotten Lone Druid in the safelane. Arteezy wasn't contested very well by Ohaiyo and his farm just exploded. After a 16 minute Maelstrom his item progression would not be slowed down. His 670 gold per minute stat was the highest in the series. In Game 2, his Troll Warlord was again the star of the show. He racked up the game-high seven kills and dictated the flow of the match.
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.
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.
