LGD Gaming
Couldn't handle Liquid supremacy
August 12, 2017
Ame was the lone spark for LGD as they bow out of the International 2017 against Team Liquid. The carry finished with a KDA of 5/5/8.
ANALYSIS
Ame was the only player on LGD with a positive KDA and a plus-400 gold per minute stat line. In Game 1, his Phantom Assassin never really got going. He didn't get any early kills to help him snowball. He managed to get his items at a decent time, but Liquid were too prepared against the PA. In Game 2, Ame went with the carry Timbersaw. This game turned out better for him as he farmed a 14-minute Bloodstone and he dished out a good amount of damage. He picked up two kills and only died once despite the lopsided game.
Can't step up his game
August 9, 2017
Ame never got going in LGD Gaming's defeat at the hands of Virtus Pro in The International 2017. He finished with a KDA of 3/8/2.
ANALYSIS
Ame went with Troll Warlord, a meta favorite, in the first game of the series. He didn't have a great early game against 9pasha's Omniknight, and it showed with his farm. When he chose to rotate for LGD, VP just picked him apart. His aggression turned out badly for his team, as dying five times in a 24-minute game is never encouraging. Ame again went for Troll Warlord in Game 2. His performance wasn't much better, as even if he died less he was far from impactful in yet another blowout.
More hindrance than help in Game 2
August 4, 2017
Ame finished LGD's 1-1 draw with Team Liquid during the group stages of The International 7 with a final KDA of 8/4/20
ANALYSIS
Ame played Sven in Game 1 and Faceless Void in Game 2 of the series. In Game 1, Ame played the tank for Maybe, dealing just enough damage to be considered the main threat and using his massive health bar to absorb the incoming damage, while Maybe blindsided Liquid with the true firepower of LGD's lineup. In a complete 180 during Game 2, Ame was powerless to assist Maybe. Even if he dropped his Chronosphere to secure a kill he risked trapping Maybe, or worse, trapping Maybe and having to retreat without a kill due to the threat of MinD_ContRoL's Heaven's Halberd.
Difficult games for the LGD carry
August 3, 2017
Ame had a rough series in LGD's 0-2 loss to iG.Vitality in the group stages of The International 7. He finished with an 8/12/16 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ame played Slark. He had a surprisingly decent start for such a weak hero, but couldn't manage to stand up in large-scale fights. He had trouble latching on to targets, and even when he was able to dish out damage there were just too many threats to watch out for from iG.V's team. He finished with a 3/7/5 KDA. In Game 2 Ame played Phantom Assassin. He had another very difficult game. Even with Empower from eLeVeN's Magnus, Ame just didn't have the damage that LGD needed to bring down iG.V's tanky Timbersaw or elusive Weaver. He finished with a 5/5/11 KDA.
Completely outmatches his opponents
August 2, 2017
Ame played beautifully as LGD Gaming took a 2-0 sweep over Fnatic in the group stages of The International 7. Ame finished the series with a 16/2/23 KDA.
ANALYSIS
With only a single death in each of the two games, Ame could do whatever he wanted across the map. He was in complete control and was able to cruise to a series sweep with his teammates over the clearly outmatched Fnatic. LGD could not have asked for a better start to to the tourney as they have their eyes set on an upper bracket birth.
Beautiful play from LGD's young star
July 7, 2017
Ame played an almost perfect game for LGD in their sweep of OG in MDL 2017. The young carry finished with a KDA of 22/4/29.
ANALYSIS
Ame's series opener on the Gyrocopter proved the hero is still deadly in the right hands. His farm was excellent from the beginning as he farmed a 13-minute Mask of Madness. He used his power spike to perfection as he racked up the game-high 12 kills. In Game 2, Ame's Medusa once again had a great showing. He picked up the unorthodox Blade Mail first on the hero. It payed off very well for them as it turned around many clashes in their favor.
Difficult game for LGD's carry
July 6, 2017
Ame had a rough showing against iG in the MDL 2017 group stages, he finished with a 3/4/7 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ame played Terrorblade, one of his favorite heroes. He had a decent lane, but didn't manage to make the transition into the mid-and-late game well enough. He was able to be pretty impactful in fights, but the rest of his team was far from enjoying the same success. Ame wasn't able to make up for that by himself, and eventually also started to fall behind.
Leads LGD to a chaotic victory
July 5, 2017
Ame finished with a 15/5/7 KDA in an LGD win against Evil Geniuses in the MDL 2017 group stages.
ANALYSIS
Ame played Chaos Knight. He had a great game, dominating the map from the time that the horn sounded. He dealt massive burst damage with his Phantasm illusions, and was an extremely effective counter to Arteezy's Lifestealer. Evil Geniuses didn't have any good way to deal with his illusions, so Ame was allowed to run rampant in fights.
Impressive game from LGD's carry
July 5, 2017
Ame finished with a 10/2/20 KDA in LGD's win over OG in the MDL 2017 group stages.
ANALYSIS
Ame played Faceless Void. This was an impressive performance from Ame, who managed to take control of his lane early. He put himself in an excellent position to continue controlling the game through Chronosphere, as well as contributing a sizable chunk of damage himself. His lockdown was especially valuable this game against both Ember Spirit and Meepo.
Calm presence in lost
June 16, 2017
Ame was the steadying force for LGD as they succumbed to Team Secret in The Summit. The up-and-coming carry finished with a KDA of 10/6/11.
ANALYSIS
Ame's opening game on Terrorblade had him enjoy an excellent early game. He managed the most last hits by match's end, but it wasn't enough as his trust in his teammates was a little too much, causing him to be left hanging by his team often while overstaying his welcome in the frontline. His second game on the Weaver was more impactful. He was leading the net-worth chart early so he was set to take over. Ame managed 482 gold per minute and racked up nine kills.
Fails to deliver in sweep
December 9, 2016
Ame finished LGD's 2-0 loss to LGD.FY during the first round of the Boston Major with a KDA of 8/11/15.
ANALYSIS
Ame played Lifestealer in Game 1. Finding quick farm and a couple early kills, Ame looked to be in a good postion heading into the mid game. After taking some bad engagements, Ame found himself unable to contend with the cores of LGD.FY, but he was unable to catch up as he was forced to fight. In Game 2, Ame played Weaver. LGD.FY had excellent wave-clear abilities on several heroes and more than enough disables to keep Ame in check. As a result, he was not as potent in teamfights as LGD anticipated.
Finished the sweep with a perfect stat line
December 5, 2016
Ame played absolutely perfect as LGD swept Faceless 2-0 in the group stage of Boston Major. Maybe finished with a 12/0/15 KDA and destroyed four towers, two barracks and two Roshans in the series.
ANALYSIS
Ame put on a clinic on how to play Phantom Assassin and Luna to their full potential. Ame looked completely in control of the series as he was able to clearly outmatch his Faceless counterparts. Not dying a single time in the series, Ame can bring this momentum into the next stage of the Boston Major as the competition will get a lot more difficult.
Strong play slices way to a victory
October 31, 2016
Ame had a phenomenal showing against his sister team, LGD Forever Young at the Boston Major China qualifiers. With a 10/2/7, KDA he pushed his way to an LGD victory.
ANALYSIS
Ame chose Juggernaut as LGD's third pick in their battle against LGD Forever Young at the Boston Major China qualifiers. In the contentious, 39-minute game, Ame was a monster. With his 10/2/7 KDA, he was a massive part of their win. Alongside Ame was Maybe's Mirana and between the two of them, LGD was unstoppable. Ame ended the game with the highest net worth at 25,700 and tower damage at 4,600. He also had the second highest hero damage at 15,400, trailing Maybe by just over 5,000. The game was a close one, which was great to see if your involved with the LGD organization.
Can't keep it together throughout series
October 21, 2016
9k player Ame showed that MMR isn't everything with a poor showing at The Summit 6 Chinese Qualifiers. The former CDEC Youth player had a 21/17/12 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ame had an awkward Game 1 where he got Luna in the safe lane. He just couldn't get going despite a 521 GPM. He appeared lost, and his lack of experience on the bigger stage showed. As Luna, a known tower-pusher, he only registered a total of 621 tower damage. Ame stepped up his play in Game 2, LGD's only win; he was given the Juggernaut. An impressive 10/1/3 KDA was only undermined by dealing the least hero damage amongst the three LGD cores at 10,400. However, it was all downhill for Ame after Game 2. He had the most deaths on his team in Game 3 as Slardar. Then his lack of composure and focus showed in Game 4 as Huskar, as he made many mistakes left and right. Ame may be 9k, but he has a long way to go if he wants to make it in the pro scene.
Unable to perform well against LGD in 0-2 loss
July 11, 2016
CDEC.Youth's position one player was a large factor in their 0-2 loss to LGD Gaming. Ame only had two kills in the series regardless of his priority pick in Game 1. He ended the series with a disappointing 2/12/9 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ame did not show up for their elimination match against LGD Gaming. In Game 1, CDEC.Youth didn't have any standout players or score lines but Ame was more of a problem than a solution. Playing Lycan, both Ame and his lane partner, Xz's Shadow Demon, were unable to slow down xiao8's Tidehunter in their bottom safe lane. While xiao8 wasn't what won the game for LGD, he set up massive plays that allowed LGD to take the game. Ame ended the game with a 1/5/7 KDA. Game 2 picked up right where Game 1 left off. It seemed like CDEC.Youth was on tilt because at no point in the game did they have a gold lead. Ame was put on Timbersaw, where he finished with another disappointing 1/7/2 KDA. One beacon of hope in this disappointing series was he led the team's hero damage in Game 2 with 5,600. CDEC.Youth was eliminated from Nanyang Championships Season 2 with this loss and will need Ame to get more than two kills if they plan to beat We Are Young on Tuesday in the Dota Professional League.
