Racks up the deaths in a one-sided loss
August 17, 2018
Ninjaboogie had a hard time in a 0-2 loss to Liquid in the group stages of The International 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 1/20/21.
ANALYSIS
Game 1 was extremely rough for Ninjaboogie's Crystal Maiden. He was a part of nine kills, but also gave up a painful 10 deaths over the course of the game to Liquid. He finished with a 0/10/9 KDA. Game 2 was no better for Ninjaboogie, on Shadow Shaman this time. He once again did his best to participate in kills with his team, but was just so underleveled and lacking items that he went down without much effort at all. He finished with a 1/10/12 KDA.
Mixed bag from Mineski's hard support
May 23, 2018
Ninjaboogie finished a tough 1-2 loss to Optic ESL Birmingham with a 10/19/50 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ninjaboogie played Shadow Demon in Game 1, putting illusions to work for Mineski. He had strong choices for Disruption targets with a Luna on his team and Morphling on the other, while also providing a strong initiation and general save tool all game. He finished with a 3/4/15 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Disruptor, finding himself on the losing side of things this time. He still did his best to set up fights for Mineski but Optic's momentum was too strong. When heroes started living through Ninjaboogie's Static Storm, that was the beginning of the end. He finished with a 4/9/21 KDA. In the third game Ninjaboogie played Bane. Although he didn't die a lot, Ninjaboogie wasn't able to be very effective this game. His lack of mobility seriously hurt him in fights, forcing Ninjaboogie to hang very far back in order to survive. This in turn limited the effectiveness of his spells, which he couldn't really use to initiate. He finished with a 3/6/14 KDA.
Did all he could in a painful loss
May 5, 2018
Ninjaboogie played Lion, finishing with a 2/6/15 KDA in a disheartening best-of-one elimination loss to Virtus.pro at EPICENTER XL.
ANALYSIS
Despite playing well almost all game, Mineski failed to close out the match with their hefty 11,000 gold lead. They quickly lost two back-to-back fights centered around Roshan, and just like that Mineski found themselves behind with Virtus.pro charging down their base.
Great setup from Mineski's support
April 1, 2018
Ninjaboogie played a nice Disruptor against Evil Geniuses, finishing with a 1/4/10 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Ninjaboogie's positioning was great this game apart from a few deaths in the late-game, but these often came in exchange for multiple kills on Evil Geniuses' heroes. In fights, Ninjaboogie was practically always able to get off his high-value teamfight spells before either going down or being forced to run away.
Advances to the playoffs at Starladder
February 3, 2018
Ninjaboogie played a great series in a 2-1 win over Empire at the fourth Starladder Invitational. He finished with an overall KDA of 11/10/40.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ninjaboogie played Jakiro. This was an impressive game for Ninjaboogie, who often dies a lot on the supports he plays. This game, he was able to get off his spells while positioning himself well enough to survive most fights. He finished with a 3/1/13 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Witch Doctor. He played well in the early game, but couldn't stop the powerful mid-game timing push from Empire. Mineski got hit hard and set extremely far behind. Ninjaboogie finished with a 6/5/6 KDA. In Game 3 Ninjaboogie played an incredibly annoying Bounty Hunter. From his early courier kill until the moment Mineski claimed their win, Ninjaboogie was all over the map being a huge pain to anyone he could find. He finished the game with a 2/4/21 KDA.
Falls short against Newbee
February 2, 2018
Ninjaboogie finished a 1-2 loss to Newbee at the fourth Starladder Invitational with an overall KDA of 19/20/29.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ninjaboogie played Witch Doctor. Despite dying a lot in fights, Ninjaboogie's damage was actually a big part of Mineski's ability to take fights. Maledict provided a good way of killing Tidehunter in the early game, which allowed Mineski the confidence to take the fights that won them the game. Ninjaboogie finished with a 9/6/12 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Witch Doctor again, but didn't have the same success. Without his teammates to position himself behind, Ninjaboogie was extremely vulnerable all game. He finished with a 5/8/7 KDA. In Game 3 Ninjaboogie played Bane. He made some nice moves in the early game along with Jabz's Sand King, but couldn't transition this lead into the later stages of the game. As things went later, he became much less useful in fights. He finished with a 5/6/10 KDA.
Absolutely dominates anything in his way
January 4, 2018
Ninjaboogie could not be stopped as Mineski defeated Team Secret in the Group Stages of Captain's Draft 4. Ninjaboogie finished with a 14/6/12 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Right next to Mushi, Ninjaboogie was a destructive force that Secret could only hope to contain. He racked up a team-high 14 kills in the commanding victory. Ninjaboogie was only looking to fight, and that is exactly what he did. Hopefully, he can carry that momentum out of groups.
Shows off new hero
January 4, 2018
Ninjaboogie finished with a 6/5/16 KDA in an impressive win against Vici Gaming at Captain's Draft 4.
ANALYSIS
Ninjaboogie played support Dark Willow. This was an interesting game for the new hero, who is currently unavailable in the typical Captain's Mode format. Ninjaboogie was effective in harassing in the early game, but once things went later his only really useful spell was his ultimate, Terrorize. The fear effect proved to be extremely strong though, making the pick work out well.
Can't find the kills needed to take over the game
November 23, 2017
Ninjaboogie struggled on Spirit Breaker against compLexity. He finished with a 2/8/11 KDA. Mineski is eliminated from the Perfect World Minor, finishing in 7th-8th place.
ANALYSIS
Although he was making the moves he needed to, compLexity was too prepared for Ninjaboogie. He died a lot in the early game, which only lead to more deaths as the game went on. It was an unfortunate scenario, and given the circumstances Ninjaboogie did what he could.
Excellent Game 2 to secure Mineski's first LAN win
October 22, 2017
Ninjaboogie finished with an overall KDA of 6/5/31 in Mineski's 2-0 win over LGD Gaming in the grand finals of the PGL Bucharest Minor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ninjaboogie played Lich. This was a classic Lich performance from Ninjaboogie. He made very few individual plays, but provided massive utility to his team. The experience denial from Sacrifice combined with the excellent observer ward vision Ninjaboogie provided put Mineski in a nice position as the game went on. He finished with a 2/4/11 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Silencer. Silencer is quickly becoming one of Mineski's staple heroes, and this game was a great example of why. Global Silence gives Ninjaboogie such control over fights, and thanks to his good positioning and quick reaction, he was almost always able to get it off in time. He finished with a 4/1/20 KDA.
Supports his team to a commanding win
October 20, 2017
Ninjaboogie finished with an overall KDA of 3/5/43 in Mineski's 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses in the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ninjaboogie played Silencer. This was a very flashy game for Ninjaboogie, but Silencer isn't a hero with much playmaking potential. His Global Silences were extremely impactful though. Whenever a fight looked like it might just tip in EG's favor, Ninjaboogie was ready with Global to shut them down. He finished with a 0/3/15 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Silencer again. He played just as well in this game as he did in the first. His positioning was good, and Global Silence was always put to good use. He finished Game 2 with a 3/2/28 KDA.
Couldn't keep it together after a close Game 1 loss
October 12, 2017
Ninjaboogie finished with an overall KDA of 3/9/15 in Mineski's 0-2 loss to Team Liquid at the Starladder iLeague Minor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ninjaboogie played Night Stalker. He had a good early game, but Mineski couldn't close out the game quickly enough on the back of it. As the match dragged on, Ninjaboogie became less and less effective. He finished with a 3/4/11 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Night Stalker again. He completely fell flat after coming so close to victory in Game 1. This time, his early roaming accomplished next to nothing, and he was ineffective as the game went on. He finished with a 0/5/4 KDA.
Too little too late in 2-1 loss
March 13, 2017
Ninjaboogie finished Mineski's 2-1 loss to Team Faceless during the semifinals of the SEA Regional Qualifiers for the Kiev Major with a final KDA of 8/17/20.
ANALYSIS
Ninjaboogie played Crystal Maiden in Game 1, allowing Julz to play Slardar. Ninjaboogie did an excellent job of zoning for Meracle in their safe lane tri-lane and disrupting Faceless' engagements. In Game 2, Ninjaboogie tried out his best JerAx impression but fell flat. He failed to make big plays despite his greedy build and also failed to give his middle laner the advantage. In Game 3, Ninjaboogie played Sand King. Working in his own jungle, Ninjaboogie came up short once again. His delayed Blink Dagger kept him from being able to properly engage Faceless until it was too late.
Flexibility was key for Mineski's support
March 12, 2017
Ninjaboogie played a key part in Mineski's dismantling of Clutch Gamers in the Kiev Major SEA Qualifiers. The Filipino-American finished with a KDA of 4/8/39.
ANALYSIS
Ninjaboogie kicked off the series with a defensive Silencer. His Global Silences were perfectly timed and he didn't slack off in the farming game as well managing 455 gold per minute. He only died four times and was involved in 21 of Mineski's kills in the game. In Game 2, ninjaboogie was on the more active Rubick. His rotations helped Mineski stay in control. He also managed a 21-minute Blink Dagger which was a respectable timing for the hero. His game-high 20 assists underlined his contribution to Mineski's win.
Underwhelming series from Mineski's captain
September 11, 2016
Ninjaboogie played a mediocre series, but managed to take a game off Execration in their 1-2 loss in the MPGL SEA Championships upper bracket final. He finished with an overall KDA of 7/19/48.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ninjaboogie played Oracle. His early game damage was essential in securing Mineski's early lead, providing the burst to kill heroes like Axe and Timbersaw. Unfortunately, Ninjaboogie found himself falling off in effectiveness very quickly. His False Promise extended his teammates' lives, but they almost always died at the end of it. Ninjaboogie finished the game with a 3/9/27 KDA. In Game 2 Ninjaboogie played Ogre Magi. He did a very nice job of protecting Raging Potato's Drow Ranger in the bottom lane, setting Mineski up for a very strong transition into the mid-game. With the massive gold advantage that comes with taking multiple towers early on, Ninjaboogie was able to stay relevant throughout the entire game. Mineski won Game 2 in just 26 minutes, evening up the series. Ninjaboogie finished Game 2 with a 2/2/14 KDA. In Game 3 Ninjaboogie played support Silencer. Although it was a potentially very good pick, Silencer is just too weak in lane. Ninjaboogie found himself against a triple lane early on, and was almost completely unable to help out Raging Potato's Drow Ranger in lane. With no momentum behind their Drow Ranger or Morphling, Ninjaboogie and Mineski were essentially helpless as they lost Game 3 in just under 30 minutes. He finished with a 2/8/7 KDA.
