Team Empire
Great supporting in lower bracket sweep
August 10, 2017
Miposhka supported Team Empire to a 2-0 sweep against Evil Geniuses in the lower bracket of The International 2017. He finished the series with an overall KDA of 5/15/42.
ANALYSIS
Miposhka played as the Ancient Apparition in both games of the series. In Game 1 he did an excellent job of providing the proper vision for Ghostik on Batrider to get land as many Flaming Lassos as he could. Working incredibly well with RodjER on Earthshaker, Evil Geniuses couldn't handle the Echo Slam/Ice Blast combo. Game 2 was more of the same from Miposhka. He waited for his Nyx Assassin to spot out an enemy hero, and coordinated his Ice Blast perfectly in conjunction with Nyx's and Mirana's stuns.
Excellent setups all game
August 9, 2017
Miposhka showed off his skills as a support, helping Team Empire defeat Cloud9 in the elimination match at The International 2017. He finished the single game series with a KDA of 6/6/16.
ANALYSIS
Playing as the Disruptor, Miposhka held true to his hero's title and disrupted all of Cloud9's plans. Going for an early max level build into Glimpse, Miposhka managed to set up numerous duels for Ghostik on the Legion Commander. They worked flawlessly together to advance and bait out the enemy retreat, Glimpse, and then duel for an easy win on a solo enemy hero.
Can't handle the EG aggression
August 3, 2017
Miposhka was clearly outmatched as Team Empire was swept 2-0 by Evil Geniuses in group stages of The International 7. Miposhka finished the series with a 3/20/13 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Team Empire has been showing signs of strength, but they could not muster anything against a determined EG team. Starting with Shadow Shaman, Miposhka was bullied around the map in a loss. Miposhka hoped that switching to Lich would bring better results, but it did not. EG was clearly the better team from start to finish.
Can't stay alive through the series
August 2, 2017
Miposhka was picked off too often as Team Empire was swept 2-0 by LGD Gaming in the group stages of The International 7. Miposhka finished the series with a 2/11/20 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Matched up against the red hot LGD, Empire had a tall task ahead of them. Miposhka started on Oracle and was forced to watch as LGD steamrolled to a Game 1 win. Game 2 was a great step for Empire, though, as they ended up leading for the majority of the match. However, this was no thanks to Miposhka's play on Ancient Apparition, as he finished with seven deaths.
Death-ridden series for Empire's support
June 16, 2017
Miposhka has a rough time in Empire's 1-2 loss to Team NP at The Summit 7. He finished with an overall KDA of 5/23/36. Empire is eliminated from The Summit in last place.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miposhka played Disruptor. He had a very poor game. His spell usage was off the mark, and Empire all seemed to be playing on a different page from each other. Miposhka finished with a 0/5/6 KDA. In Game 2 Miposhka played Windranger support. Despite being one of the statistically worst heroes in Dota right now, Miposhka made Windranger work well for Empire. Shackleshot was extremely effective against NP all game, and Miposhka was hard to bring down in fights thanks to Windrun. He finished with a 3/5/15 KDA. In Game 3 Miposhka played Witch Doctor. This was not a fun game for Miposhka. His Death Ward was somewhat useful as the game dragged on for over an hour, but really most of what he did was die over and over again. He finished the game with a brutal 2/13/15 KDA.
Couldn't put together his best series
July 9, 2016
Miposhka didn't put together a strong series as Team Empire lost 2-1 to Digital Chaos in round 1 of the lower bracket of the Nanyang Season 2 LAN final. Miposhka finished with an 11/16/36 KDA in the series.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Miposhka played Elder Titan and he played it extremely well. He finished with a 5/1/12 KDA as Empire grabbed the well-earned win and everything seemed good. Then Miposhka started to take steps backwards, as his play got worse as the series went on. For Game 2, he and all of Empire were choked out as Digital Chaos grabbed a slight early lead and then played a very conservative, but dominating style on their way to a win. When the deciding Game 3 began, Miposhka had nothing left and ended up feeding 11 deaths to Digital Chaos. Early success seemed to mess with Miposhka and he must look forward now to shake off this tough loss and find ways to improve.
Mediocre series at Nanyang Season 2 Championships
July 7, 2016
Miposhka had a mediocre series as Team Empire lost 0-2 against Wings Gaming at the Nanyang Season 2 Championships on Wednesday. He ended the series with a KDA of 2/14/20. Team Empire will drop down to face Digital Chaos.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Miposhka played a roaming Elder Titan. Early on he put forth a good effort in helping Afterlife's Tidehunter bottom lane. His harassment with Astral Spirit and Echo Stomp prevented Wings Gaming from having an easy safe lane. His Echo Stomp usage was a great contribution to the team, disabling enemy heroes for one minute and 32 seconds. These disables didn't lead to good enough setups for his team, though. When Game 1 ended, Miposhka had a disappointing KDA of 0/10/13. Although his team lost Game 2 by a larger margin than Game 1, the second game of the series was stronger for Miposhka when he played Kunkka. His play fell short when it came to his ultimate, only hitting one enemy hero with the eight times he casted Ghost Ship. He did, however, manage to participate in nine of his team's 10 kills. His KDA was respectable considering the great margin by which Team Empire's lost Game 2, ending with a 2/4/7 KDA.
Miposhka: Headed to bottom bracket at The Manila Major
June 4, 2016
Despite Team Empire losing 1-2 against OG, Miposhka provided many great initiations for his team in The Manila Major Group A match on Friday. Miposhka finished the series with an overall KDA of 7/11/32.
ANALYSIS
Miposhka's Game 1 was at times outstanding, but also at times mediocre when he played as Enigma. The highlight of Miposhka's series was an incredible four-man Black Hole/Midnight Pulse combo at 16:13. Miposhka didn't even need a Blink Dagger to pull it off, as he simply waited in the trees, using vision from a nearby Observer Ward to know when it was time to strike. The combo assisted in the demise of the entire team of OG. After that, Miposhka failed to land another multiple hero Black Hole, even completely whiffing two Black Holes with no heroes caught at all. The early Black Hole team wipe proved to be enough of an advantage, though, as his team won Game 1. Game 2 was another good performance by Miposhka, this time as Earth Spirit. Miposhka contributed 8,800 damage to enemy heroes and a total of one minute and 58 seconds of crowd control. Much of this crowd control was directed towards Fly's Phoenix, particularly during his Sun Ray. By cancelling this ability early, Miposhka prevented great amounts of healing for OG and damage against his own team. This assistance proved to be insufficient, as OG claimed victory over Team Empire for Game 2. Miposhka performed weakly in Game 3 as Phoenix. He dealt 3,728 damage and healed 871 health with Sun Ray, compared to 4,846 damage and 2,606 healing from Fly's Phoenix in Game 2.
Miposhka: Team Empire defeated compLexity Gaming 2-0 in Group A of The Manila Major
June 4, 2016
Miposhka played a strong series as Team Empire swept compLexity Gaming 2-0 in Group A of The Manila Major. Miposhka finished with a 11/7/39 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Miposhka was everywhere on the map this series, doing his best work in the background of Team Empire. In Game 1, Empire played great together as the game progressed, with Miposhka being an integral part of what kept them on the same page. As Earth Spirit, Miposhka racked up 15 assists, most of which coming late in order to help Empire take Game 1. In Game 2, he played Doom and was able to improve on the strong play he showed in Game 1. Wherever a compLexity player was being slain, Miposhka seemed to be a part of it as he accrued a game high 24 assists. Team Empire seemed to be clicking on all cylinders and should feel strong going forward.
