Lone spark in OG's struggle
July 7, 2017
Ana was the lone positive for OG in their loss to LGD in MDL 2017. The OG star finished with a KDA of 12/10/21.
ANALYSIS
Ana kicked off the series with his signature Invoker. Despite his familiarity with the hero, he was outplayed Maybe's Mirana in the early game. His 11-minute Hand of Midas was way later than his average, and because of this he couldn't get going. Ana was forced to farm most of the mid game as well, as Maybe had his way with OG. In Game 2, OG decided to switch things up by moving Ana to the safe lane. His showing on the Faceless Void was still not great, unfortunately. He was forced to stay defensive, picking up a very early Linken's Sphere. Nine kills isn't bad, but Ana should have definitely done more.
OG's middle lane puts on a spectacular Invoker show
July 6, 2017
Ana played an outstanding game, finishing with a 19/2/10 KDA against LFY in the MDL 2017 group stages.
ANALYSIS
Ana played Invoker, delivering a very impressive performance. He had a difficult early game, but managed to pull off a very impressive comeback. With the rest of his team helping to create space, Ana farmed his way back into the game at an astonishing pace. After scoring an Ultra Kill at 24 minutes, Ana was fully in control of the game. His two deaths this game both took place in the lane phase before 10 minutes; afterwards his performance was close to perfect.
Team too heavy
July 5, 2017
Ana finished OG's 1-0 loss to Evil Geniuses during the group stages of MDL 2017 with a final KDA of 14/7/5
ANALYSIS
Playing as Invoker, Ana succeeded on a comfort hero. However, the success of one cannot undo the mistakes of the other four. Fighting better than he farmed, Ana could do very little to empower his teammates or turn the game around as OG were put down by a swift Drow Ranger lineup from Evil Geniuses.
OG's middle lane unable to carry on his own
July 5, 2017
Ana finished with an 8/8/6 KDA in a difficult loss to LGD in the MDL 2017 group stages.
ANALYSIS
Ana played Ember Spirit. He was the only member of OG to have anything close to a decent game. His choice to go for a Radiance as his first item meant he was dealing a lot of chip damage all game, but this was unfortunately not enough to tip the scales in OG's favor. He dealt the most damage of anyone in the game with 42,000, but it wasn't the kind of damage OG needed to win.
Puts on an insane show in Game 1, but couldn't keep it up for the whole series
May 27, 2017
Ana dominated Game 1, but fell off sharply afterwards in OG's 1-2 elimination match loss to Faceless at the Manila Masters. He finished with an overall KDA of 39/18/29.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ana played Invoker. This was an outstanding performance from Ana. He started out slow in classic Invoker fashion, but soon he had completely taken over the game. His damage was completely out of control in fights, and there was nothing Faceless could do to stop him. Ana finished with an incredible 19/0/13 KDA. In Game 2 Ana played Storm Spirit. This was a miserable game for Ana. He died four times in lane to rotations from Jabz's Clockwerk, and by the time he was even able to think about a comeback, Black^'s Anti-Mage was totally in command of the game. Ana was mostly a liability in fights thanks to his high mana pool, which made for some spectacular Mana Voids. Ana finished with a 5/9/5 KDA. Ana played Mirana in Game 3. He found the most success of anyone on his team thanks to his high magical burst damage, but this wasn't enough to carry the rest of OG. They had serious damage issues outside of Ana's burst, which has far too long of a cool down to be the sole source of burst damage. Ana himself was also very vulnerable to being whittled down. He finished the game with a 15/9/11 KDA.
Put on a show in a big victory
April 30, 2017
Ana could not be stopped as OG defeated Evil Geniuses 2-0 in the semifinals of the Kiev Major. OG advances on to the grand final to face Virtus.pro. Ana finished the series with a 22/9/26 KDA and destroyed nine towers, five barracks and four Roshans in the series.
ANALYSIS
In order to defeat EG and make the grand finals, OG needed a playmaker. That role was filled by Ana as he was the most dominant player in the series. First on Ember Spirit and then on Templar Assassin, Ana led his team with 11 kills in each game. In even more impressive fashion, he died only nine times in a highly competitive series. As OG needed to comeback in Game 2, Ana led the charge as he even dominated the objectives. OG is firing on all cylinders as a team right now and looks to cap off the tournament run with a title.
Can't win with his best hero
April 25, 2017
Ana finished OG's 2-0 loss to Invictus Gaming during the Kiev Major group stages with a final KDA of 12/12/18.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Ana was bested on his favorite hero, Invoker. Losing the middle lane to Op's Templar Assassin, it never got better as the game progressed. In Game 2, Ana played Dragon Knight. Though he was effective at pushing down objectives and surviving, Ana was unable to be the dynamic playmaker he usually is for OG. Lacking a sense of urgency, OG were surprised by BurNIngs Anti-Mage, which rolled over everything in its path on the way to victory.
OG's middle lane carving out his spot among the best
March 31, 2017
Ana played a great series in OG's 2-0 win over Newbee on the first day of DAC 2017 playoffs. He finished with an overall KDA of 26/7/23.
ANALYSIS
Ana played Storm Spirit in Game 1. Although he fell behind Sccc's Shadow Fiend in lane, Ana did a great job catching up in the jungle as well as participating in OG's kills. Ana was quite effective in fights, but he did wind up overextending himself a few times too many. Despite a few careless deaths, Ana was still an incredibly potent late-game force for OG, helping secure their win. Ana finished with a 13/4/15 KDA. In Game 2 Ana played Outworld Devourer. He had a bit of a rough lane once again, but this time Ana completely took over the game after the lane phase. His damage output almost single-handedly carried OG through the entire game. With 33,600 damage dealt, he did almost double the next-highest player's damage. Ana finished with a 13/3/8 KDA.
Outstanding Game 2 to finish off OG's group stage
March 28, 2017
Ana played well overall in OG's 1-1 tie with VG.J in the Dota 2 Asia Championships. He finished with an overall KDA of 22/14/43.
ANALYSIS
Ana played Nyx Assasin middle in Game 1, a very unconventional pick. Ana usually gets a hero that scales well with gold and experience, and this game really showcased how important that strategy is. Ana showed that he can play a competent Nyx Assassin, but OG needed damage and not disables in this game. Ana finished with a 3/10/18 KDA. In Game 2 Ana was back on a farming core, playing Ember Spirit. The difference from Game 1 was like night and day. Ana played an excellent game on Ember Spirit, expertly moving around fights and locking down critical targets. After a subdued Game 1, Ana went absolutely ham in Game 2, finishing with a 19/4/25 KDA.
OG mid continues to improve
March 28, 2017
Ana continues to shine for OG in their win over Team Empire in the Dota Asia Championship 2017. The rising star finished with a KDA of 22/11/20.
ANALYSIS
Ana started the series with the newly popular Lina pick in the midlane. He fared poorly against Chappie's Meepo and gave away a bunch of unnecessary deaths. It was offset however by his 16-minute Bloodstone as he quickly rejoined the fray after dying. In Game 2, he went back to his signature Invoker. This time he outplayed Chappie, again on the Meepo, in the early game as he managed a very early Hand of Midas into a 14-minute Aghanim's Scepter. He capitalized on the early power spike as he picked up 15 kills with an impressive display of individual skill.
OG's middle lane continues to come through
March 26, 2017
Ana was excellent in both games of OG's 2-0 win over Wings in the Dota 2 Asia Championships group stage. He finished with a 12/2/24 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ana played Storm Spirit. Ana had a very slow early game, but once he finished his Bloodstone and Euls' Scepter he was ready to fight against Wings' Silencer. Ana did a perfect job in most fights of diving to the back lines and picking apart Wings' supports. He finished the game with a 4/1/12 KDA. Ana played Alchemist in Game 2. He had a bit of a shaky lane, but that's no big deal for Alchemist most of the time. With his team making space around the map as four, Ana was able to quickly recover and take over the game in classic Alchemist fashion. Ana finished with an 8/1/12 KDA.
Unable to find his rhythm in 2-1 loss
February 27, 2017
Ana finished OG's 2-1 loss to Vici Gaming.J during the semifinals of the Starladder Season 3 LAN with a KDA of 14/7/24.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Ana played Alchemist. After winning his lane early, Ana was able to snowball and provide three Aghanim's Scepters to his teammates before ending the game in 45 minutes. In Game 2, Ana played Invoker. Though he was unable to pull off one of his usual crazy performance, Ana did manage to keep himself in the game. With Fly spending most of the game sacrificing himself for little gain and failed gank attempts from s4 and JerAx, OG were fighting a losing battle from the start. In Game 3, Ana played Invoker once more with worse results. Though he steered clear of trouble in the early game, the same could not be said for the rest of OG. Trying to keep his own head above water, Ana was unable to assist his ailing teammates as OG were tossed aside by a reinvigorated VGJ.
OG's mid blossoming into a star
February 24, 2017
OG's Ana was the star of the show as they dominated TNC in Starladder Season 3. Ana finished with a KDA of 24/11/34.
ANALYSIS
Ana started the series with his signature Ember Spirit in explosive fashion. Despite giving up first blood against Kuku's Juggernaut, he came back strong to finish with the game-high 13 kills and 24 assists. He was excellent in his initiation and really forced TNC on the back foot many times in the game. Ana's Game 2 performance wasn't as great with some unnecessary deaths but he still gave TNC a lot of trouble on his Templar Assassin. His 14-minute Desolator allowed him to easily snowball on his way to a game-high 11 kills.
Outstanding series from OG's middle lane
February 23, 2017
Ana dominated in both games of OG's 2-0 win over Team Secret at the Starladder iLeague season 3 finals. He finished with an overall KDA of 30/8/26.
ANALYSIS
Ana played Storm Spirit in Game 1. He had an abysmal lane, dying four times before 10 minutes into the game. This didn't put Ana on tilt though, and he was able to farm his way back into the game with style. It wasn't long before Ana was zipping around the map with almost impunity. Ana finished with a 16/7/17 KDA, an extremely impressive recovery from his 0/4/0 start. In game 2 Ana played Invoker. After a rough Game 1, Ana completely took control of the game this time. After scoring a solo kill on MidOne's Ember Spirit in lane, Ana continued to spiral out of control. He led his team in damage done by over 13,000 and absolutely decimated Secret in fights. He finished the game with an impressive 14/1/9 KDA.
Couldn't keep pace with Evil Geniuses in a close 2-3 loss
January 23, 2017
Ana looked solid, but not quite up to the task in OG's 2-3 loss to Evil Geniuses in the grand finals of Dota Pit Season 5. He finished with an overall KDA of 37/29/41.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Ana played Alchemist in the Radiant middle lane. He did well in the early game, finishing up his Armlet and Radiance by 15 minutes. Although the hero received some heavy nerfs to Greevil's Greed in 7.00, Ana made him look incredible in this game. Ana ended the game with an 8/1/6 KDA. In Game 2 Ana played Shadow Fiend in the Radiant safe lane. He got massively pressured by EG in the early game, but did a very impressive job keeping OG in the game. Although Ana was able to remain competitive in net worth with EG, he was doing it alone. This game was a very good example of why picking a single core is a bad idea, Ana simply couldn't offer enough damage by himself. He finished with a 7/10/3 KDA. In Game 3 Ana played Mirana in the Dire middle lane. He had a rough time in lane, but so do most other mid players when they're against SumaiL. Fortunately for OG, one of Ana's strengths over the course of this event has been his ability to play from behind. By moving around the map a bit with his team, Ana was able to get himself back into the game and into a position to control fights. He finished the game with a 6/2/14 KDA. In Game 4 Ana played Ember Spirit in the Dire middle lane. He had a very difficult lane once again vs SumaiL. This time his disadvantage was even worse because SumaiL's Invoker naturally countered him with Tornado's dispel. Despite his very rough start, Ana played a commendable game. His late-game play and decision making was excellent, and he almost opened up an opportunity for an OG comeback but got shut down in the end. Ana finished with a 7/8/11 KDA. In Game 5 Ana played Ember Spirit again. Ana did better in lane this time, although this may have cursed him to a poor game overall. He wasn't able to pull off the same kind of comeback that he did in OG's previous wins, or even the very close Game 4 loss. Although he did get almost half of OG's 20 kills, Ana couldn't do everything on his own and finished the game with a 9/8/7 KDA.
