Team Liquid
Hungry for the Aegis
August 12, 2017
Miracle dominated Maybe and LGD in Team Liquid's victory in The International 2017. The superstar finished with a KDA of 19/2/11.
ANALYSIS
Miracle's Morphling in the opener caught LGD by surprise and he was catalyst in the win. He outfarmed Maybe early on and his illusion usage was spot on as he baited out big ultimates from LGD twice in the match. 704 gold per minute? Too easy for M-God. In Game 2, Miracle went with a safelane Huskar. His farm was insane and his rotations always bore fruit. He racked up 10 kills and his only death made space for MATUMBAMAN to take a set of barracks for their side.
Best player on the map
August 4, 2017
Miracle had an incredible series as Team Liquid completed to 2-0 sweep over Infamous in group stages of The International 7. Miracle finished the series with a 37/6/19 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Miracle was in charge the entire series. Infamous wanted to battle out Game 1, and held their own for the most part. Liquid edged them out in the objective game and took Game 1. Game 2, however, saw Liquid roll over Infamous. Miracle put on a clinic on Queen of Pain as he racked up 18 kills to just one death.
No follow through for Game 1 Monkey King
August 4, 2017
Miracle finished Team Liquid's 1-1 draw with LGD during the group stages of The International 7 with a final KDA of 23/7/16
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Monkey King in Game 1 and Ember Spirit in Game 2 against LGD. Miracle's safe-lane Monkey King seemed like a foolish idea from the beginning. Liquid proved that it was indeed foolish, as without much crowd control and little nuke damage, Liquid were tossed aside easily. In Game 2, Miracle returned to the middle lane and put on a show as Ember Spirit, cutting LGD heroes down left and right before ending the game with an impressive 19/1/11 KDA.
Has trouble carrying as Silencer
August 3, 2017
Miracle finished Team Liquid's 1-1 draw with Evil Geniuses during the group stage of The International 7 with a final KDA of 13/8/17.
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Lycan in Game 1 and Silencer in Game 2, in the safe lane and the middle lane respectively. Miracle's Howl in Game 1 helped Liquids hyper-pushing lineup to turn towers to dust in the blink of an eye. In Game 2, Miracle couldn't keep pace with SumaiL and did not have the survivability to contend with all of EG's physical damage.
Two impressive games from Liquid's star middle lane
August 2, 2017
Miracle dominated in Liquid's 2-0 win vs Fnatic in the group stages of The International 7. He finished with an overall KDA of 26/5/14.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miracle played Morphling middle. Apart from a single death in lane, Miracle played a flawless game. His burst damage was deadly against Fnatic's lineup of squishy heroes, and he was able to move around in fights with ease. Miracle finished with a 10/1/3 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Zeus. Although it seems like Ember Spirit would be good against Zeus, it's actually the other way around. This was a great pick to counter QO's Ember Spirit, and Miracle played it very well. He scaled well as the game went on, dishing out ridiculous burst as well as sustained damage with Static Field. He finished with a 16/4/11 KDA.
Amazing performance from the Liquid middle lane
August 2, 2017
Miracle finished with an overall KDA of 25/8/24 in Liquid's 2-0 win over iG.Vitality in The International 7 group stages.
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Troll Warlord middle in Game 1. Apart from some sloppy fights, especially when trying to push into iG.V's high ground, Miracle played a very solid game. As long as he managed to survive iG.V's initial burst, Miracle was able to keep himself going in fights pretty well. He finished with a 13/4/11 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Invoker. It's been a while since Miracle has played such an impressive Invoker game, but Liquid really needed it in this game. Despite the rest of his team struggling, Miracle managed to almost single-handedly get Liquid back into a winning position. He finished the game with a 12/4/13 KDA.
In top form heading into TI
July 24, 2017
Miracle finished Team Liquid's 3-2 victory over Planet Odd in the Grand Finals of DreamLeague Season 7 with a final KDA of 48/16/28.
ANALYSIS
Miracle looked every bit his old, dominant self as Liquid took the crown at DreamLeague. In Game 1, Miracle's Invoker play was top notch, but lacked follow through from his teammates. Despite racking up an impressive 15 kills, Miracle was unable to stop Planet Odd alone. In Game 2, he regressed as Outworld Devourer. It was a long drawn out affair that put Planet Odd just one game away from a series victory. Miracle helped pull his team back from the brink in Game 3 as Huskar. Rolling over Moon in lane, Miracle finished with 10 kills and only one death as Liquid recorded their victory in just under 18 minutes. In Game 4, Miracle proved he could win the long game as well, playing as Anti-Mage. Maximizing his farm and putting his team on his back Miracle helped Liquid force a Game 5. In Game 5, Miracle played a perfect Weaver in Team Liquid's push lineup. Their strategy prevailed over Planet Odd's long-game gambit and Liquid came away with the series victory.
Another commanding performance from Liquid
July 21, 2017
Miracle played well as usual in Liquid's 2-0 win over Planet Odd in the Dreamhack Dreamleague Season 7 playoffs. He finished with an overall KDA of 26/6/10.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miracle played Dragon Knight. He had a rough time in the early game against a Planet Odd dual lane, but managed to come back very well. Miracle did a nice job playing around his team's pushing potential, providing an extremely durable front line as well as some significant structural damage. He finished with a 10/5/5 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Anti-Mage. After his earlier success on Anti-Mage, Miracle seemed to be warmed up on the hero. He played extremely well in this game, going for a very unconventional item build. He went for a Diffusal Blade into Silver's Edge, but found himself starved for item slots as the game went on. He finished with a dominating 16/1/5 KDA.
Flashy series from Liquid's star
July 21, 2017
Miracle finished with a 31/11/33 overall KDA in a 2-0 win over Vega Squadron in the Dreamhack Dreamleague playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Anti-Mage in Game 1. Despite facing a lot of pressure all game long, Miracle managed to keep cool and farm his way to victory. Liquid were behind for almost all of the game, but it paid off in the end when Miracle was able actually enter fights with confidence. He finished with a 12/4/11 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Juggernaut. This game was a bit of a struggle for Miracle. He was constantly getting into the middle of fights because he needed to in order for Liquid to win fights, but this often lead to his own death. He scaled very well as the game dragged on despite being down two lanes of barracks, and managed to rally with his team to take the win. He finished with a 19/7/20.
Sublime performance leads Team Liquid to a championship
June 11, 2017
Miracle managed to outplay SumaiL in Team Liquid's dismantling of Evil Geniuses in the Epicenter 2017 grand finals. The well-known mid laner finished with a KDA of 38/8/40.
ANALYSIS
Miracle pulled off a shocker as he ran mid Sven to perfection. He dominated the early game alongside his Io and forced SumaiL on one of his worst game on the Storm Spirit. Miracle transitioned to the safe lane on the Juggernaut in the following game. The shift then resulted in Team Liquid's only lost in the series as Team Liquid fell behind early and never bounced back. In Game 3, he was back on the mid lane with his feared Invoker. He easily won the early game against SumaiL's Mirana and picked up a nine-minute Hand of Midas into a 14-minute Aghanim's Scepter. After that it was all but over for EG as he ran away with 14 kills and zero deaths. In the final game of the series, his Ursa had a near perfect outing except for one death near the end of the game. Miracle was impressively involved in 29 of Liquid's 36 kills.
Another impressive series from Liquid's star
June 10, 2017
Miracle continued to impress in Liquid's 2-0 win over LGD.ForeverYoung in the semifinals of Epicenter. He finished with an overall KDA of 29/10/21. Liquid advance to the grand final to face Evil Geniuses.
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Sven in Game 1. Despite not being in his native middle lane, Miracle delivered an impressive performance on Sven. He did a great job positioning himself in fights, often waiting and baiting LFY into a false sense of security before blinking in and joining the fray. He finished with a 17/3/5 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Earthshaker middle. He had a bit of a shaky lane (no pun intended), but it wasn't enough to really set him back. After the lanes broke down Miracle transitioned into a beastly initiator and damage dealer. He finished the game with a 12/7/16 KDA and 31,500 damage done to LFY's heroes.
Steps outside his normal hero pool in an impressive win
June 9, 2017
Miracle showed some impressive flexibility in Liquid's 2-1 win over Virtus.pro in the quarterfinals of Epicenter. He finished with a 19/6/16 overall KDA. Liquid advances to face LGD.ForeverYoung in the semifinals.
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Invoker in Game 1. He gave Liquid some brief flashes of hope, but end the end there was too much resting on his shoulders to do it alone. He did a lot of damage over the course of the game, but not in the critical fights where it really counted. Miracle finished with a 5/4/2 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Dragon Knight. Although it's not one of the flashy heroes Miracle rose to fame on, but he did a great job on Dragon Knight. He went for a very smart Pipe of Insight purchase, which let him sit in the front lines and soak massive amounts of damage. Miracle finished with an 8/1/4 KDA. In Game 3 Miracle played Juggernaut in the Radiant off lane, taking a vacation from his usual spot in the middle lane. He did an excellent job in lane, and made some impressive early rotations that catapulted Liquid into a comfortable lead. From that point, it was relatively easy for Liquid to close out the game. He finished with a 6/1/10 KDA.
Liquid's star middle lane burns out
June 5, 2017
Miracle played a very poor series in Liquid's 0-2 loss to Secret in the Epicenter group stages. He finished with an overall KDA of 7/12/13.
ANALYSIS
Miracle played Ember Spirit in Game 1. He went for the physical damage item build, but this wasn't the issue that kept Liquid from winning Game 1. Miracle made a lot of very sick plays, but he made a few too many extremely risky and dumb moves. He finished the game with a 7/9/10 KDA, tied for second most deaths. Miracle played Phantom Assassin in Game 2, and had a very underwhelming game. In Game 1 he at least made some plays for his team, but this time he was completely absent. Miracle finished with a 0/3/3 KDA, an extremely poor performance.
Completely dominates the field in Starladder day 2
May 19, 2017
Miracle played exceptionally well in Liquids's 2-0 sweep over Vega in the StarLadder Invitational #2. He finished the series with a final KDA of 27/2/17.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miracle was completely on point with Invoker, forcing Vega to call GG in 30 minutes. Picking up a Midas at the 10-minutes mark, Miracle landed almost every Sun Strike he threw. Vega had no answers for the Invoker/Chronosphere combo, and Miracle ended the game 16/2/8, and led the field in damage output with 26,275. Game 2 was an even more impressive showing from Miracle with the Outworld Devourer. After completely destroying the mid lane with the help of KuroKy on Tusk, Miracle went on to have a double-rampage at the 19-minute mark, and finished the game 11/0/9. Vega didn't stand a chance, and called GG in just over 22 minutes.
Explosive performance to start Liquid's StarLadder run
May 19, 2017
Miracle looked solid in Liquid's 2-0 win over Faceless at the second StarLadder Invitational. He finished with an overall KDA of 12/5/11.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Miracle played Tinker. He had a fantastic game from the time the horn sounded. Miracle finished his Boots of Travel at eight minutes, and from there it was non-stop domination until the game ended. He finished with the highest hero damage done by 13,000, with an impressive 21,400 damage done in a 24-minute game. He finished with a 6/0/5 KDA. In Game 2 Miracle played Earthshaker middle. This was a very different playstyle for Miracle, but he managed to adapt very well. He wasn't dishing out massive Enchant Totem hits, but Miracle did do a fantastic job hitting all his spells. He finished the game with a 6/5/6 KDA.
