Humbled in the Bucharest opener
March 5, 2018
RodjER got knocked around as Virtus.Pro lost to OpTic Gaming 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. RodjER finished with a 1/7/11 KDA.
VP came into The Bucharest Major as the hottest team in the world. Now in a matchup with a lowly NA Dota team in OpTic, VP was looking to keep their hot streak together. However, after a dramatic throw to lose the game, VP was humbled in a major way. RodjER will take the brunt of the blame as he was just awful, leading his team in deaths as he was the only player to prevent VP from running away with the game completely early on. This may have been just what VP needed to regain their focus.
Controlled the early game for
February 25, 2018
RodjER continues to fit well with in their domination of Fnatic in the semifinals of ESL One Katowice 2018, finishing with a KDA of 6/8/23.
RodjER kicked off the series with Chen. He controlled his half of the map with efficient jungling and rotations against the bot and mid lane. RodjER even managed to do a few clutch saves that made Fnatic weep. In Game 2, he was on yet another active hero with Sand King. His 16-minute Blink Dagger allowed him to initiate with ease and he really set the tempo in the VP win.
Pushed the initiative all over the map
February 24, 2018
RodjER racked up the assists as defeated Evil Geniuses 2-1 in the quarterfinals of ESL One Katowice, finishing with a 10/7/53 KDA.
Wherever there was a fight in this series, RodjER was making his presence known. Across the three games, RodjER racked up a series-high 53 assists while only dying seven times. He played Naga Siren for both of the final two games, looking very comfortable and having a lot of success, even though one game was a loss. VP should feel very good going into the semifinals.
Tough series for the new support
February 22, 2018
Rodjer struggled to get any momentum going for against Vici Gaming in ESL One Katowice 2018. The former Na'Vi support finished with a KDA of 10/17/25.
In Game 1, Rodjer played Bounty Hunter. He spent majority of the early game in the opposing jungle and gave a lot of intel for However, his level 6 was delayed, and it hurt VP's chances of snowballing. In the latter part of the game, Rodjer became a non-factor because VG were just grouping up and a Bounty Hunter can't really do anything against that. In Game 2, Rodjer played the more teamfight oriented Tusk. He helped secure some early kills against Ori's Death Prophet and even got a 16-minute Blink Dagger. He was on point with his Snowball saves, but it wasn't enough as VP were still swept by the Chinese squad.
Sets his team up for victory
February 20, 2018
RodjER finished with a 3/6/17 KDA in a solid first-round win against Optic.
RodjER played Naga Siren in his first official appearance with He made some good moves around the map with Ensnare, but lacked the damage to get too much done. Fortunately, he more than made up for this in the later stages of the game. His setup with Song of the Siren was critical in's quick comeback win.
Traded to
February 1, 2018
In a release on its website, Na'Vi announced that RodjER would be traded to in exchange for Lil.
RodjER was partially responsible for breathing some new life into a stagnant Na'Vi lineup. With his addition to the roster, the team was starting to finally win some games and qualify for events. His transfer to does represent an on-paper upgrade for the team, but the value of team chemistry in a situation like this can never be overlooked.
Cool Tusk tricks not enough to take down Liquid
January 24, 2018
RodjER showed off some neat individual plays, but couldn't turn the tides enough in Na'Vi's favor in a 0-2 loss to Liquid at ESL One Genting. He finished with a 7/15/23.
In Game 1 RodjER played Tusk. He made some nice moves in the early game, but these weren't enough to turn the tides enough in Na'Vi's favor. RodjER finished the game with a 3/8/10 KDA. In Game 2 RodjER played Tusk again to a similar result. He made some decent rotations, but ended up dying far too often for them to be worth it. He finished with another disappointing KDA, 4/7/13 this time around.
Good teamfighting secures a win
January 23, 2018
RodjER finished with a 2/6/17 KDA as Sand King in a win vs Evil Geniuses at ESL One Genting.
After securing a Blink Dagger by 16 minutes, RodjER was able to add even more damage and control to the already threatening Na'Vi teamfight lineup. With so much other setup, it became easy for RodjER to land his spells on key targets and lock down the game for Na'Vi.
Concerning performance from Na'Vi support
December 8, 2017
RodjER looked lost in Natus Vincere's defeat against Virtus Pro in MDL Macau. The support finished with a KDA of 1/11/13.
RodjER went with Elder Titan in the crucial matchup. He spent a lot of the early game helping Dendi in the mid lane. But his presence just ended up stealing experience from Dendi. He didn't really have a good Echo Stomp-Earth Splitter combo in the game to swing things in Na'Vi's favor.
Another admirable tournament run ended short
December 2, 2017
RodjER gave it his all but couldn't do enough in a 0-2 loss to Evil Geniuses at the DreamLeague Season 8 Major. He finished with a 4/15/7 overall KDA. Na'Vi is eliminated from the event, finishing in fourth place.
RodjER played Sand King in Game 1. He finished a quick Blink Dagger at just 14 minutes, but wasn't able to group up with his teammates and turn that into an advantage. Although he continued to try and initiate, the game never turned around for RodjER and Na'Vi. He finished with a 2/8/2 KDA. In Game 2 RodjER played Undying. Together with Dendi's Zeus, RodjER terrorized SumaiL in the middle lane. Although Na'Vi succeeded in ruining the first 10 minutes of SumaiL's game, it eventually came at great cost. Na'Vi lead came unraveling once it was time to fight as five. He finished with a 2/7/5 KDA.
Solid series from Na'Vi's support
December 1, 2017
RodjER finished a 2-1 series win vs Fnatic at the Dreamleague Season 8 Major with a 10/12/47 overall KDA.
In Game 1 RodjER played Undying. He played very well in the early-game, setting himself and his team up for a decent transition into the mid and late game. RodjER did a nice job keeping himself relevant by keeping his levels up, and was actually able to be a decent threat in the late game despite Undying's weaknesses. He finished with a 5/5/18 KDA. RodjER played Earth Spirit in Game 2. He made some nice moves in the early game, but it just wasn't enough to stop Fnatic's mid-game timing. His disables were effectively useless against Fnatic's super durable lineup with an Invoker sitting behind them. RodjER finished with a 2/5/14 KDA. In Game 3 RodjER played Nyx Assassin. His positioning in this game was really excellent, allowing him to get off a lot of spells in fights. His hero was exceptionally good against Fnatic's lineup in this game, and him playing so well was a huge part of what let Na'Vi succeed in this game. He finished with a 3/2/15 KDA.
Mixed performance
October 20, 2017
Rodjer wasn't at his best in Natus Vincere's game against Mineski at the PGL Minor. The roaming support finished with a KDA of 7/24/31.
Rodjer started the series with two games on Chen. His micro play was on display, but there were times that his greediness really did not work out for his team. He did get good items in both games of the series, but it was still to mixed results. Rodjer's Nyx Assassin in the final game of the series was dead weight. His rotations didn't really get anything done, and his decision to pick up a Hand of Midas hurt his team's early game further.
Incredible Game 2 performance turns the series around for Na'Vi
October 13, 2017
RodjER finished with an overall KDA of 10/17/38 in Na'Vi's 2-1 win over Team Secret at the Starladder iLeague Minor in Kiev.
In Game 1 RodjER played Keeper of the Light. He managed to get a huge amount of early gold, leading to an 18-minute Aghanim's Scepter. Despite this impressive item timing, RodjER wasn't able to turn the tides of the match enough to bring Na'Vi back into it. The rest of his team was just too far behind. He finished with a 0/4/5 KDA. In Game 2 RodjER played Enchantress. He absolutely dominated the early game. RodjER's rotations, especially to the middle lane, set Na'Vi up for the mid-game with a very comfortable lead. The lead RodjER bought them in the early game snowballed into a brutally one-sided affair in favor of Na'Vi. They were able to close out the game in just under 30 minutes. RodjER finished with a 4/1/14 KDA. In Game 3 RodjER played Doom. He didn't have as much early impact as his Enchantress, but RodjER still put Na'Vi in a good position as the game went on. He remained relevant even as the game dragged on over the hour mark by building an Aghanim's Scepter for potentially permanent Doom on a single target. He finished with a 6/12/19 KDA.
Joins Na'Vi
September 4, 2017
In a release on its website, Na'Vi confirmed that RodjER would be joining the team for the upcoming competitive season.
RodjER has played on a number of teams in the CIS region, but his first step into the international spotlight was with Team Empire. The team made an impressive run at The International 7, placing 7th-8th. RodjER has shown considerable individual skill in his time with Empire, and Na'Vi will need all the help it can get to compete at a high level.
Incredible timing from RodjER
August 10, 2017
RodjER was the stun master in Team Empire's 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses in the lower bracket of The International 2017. He ended the series with an overall KDA of 3/13/30/
RodjER played as Earthshaker in Game 1. When you have SumaiL on Invoker as your enemy, it's important to keep him locked down in every confrontation, and that's exactly what RodjER managed to do. He timed out a few brilliant Echo Slams to help save two contests for Roshan, which helped solidify Team Empire's victory in the late game. He finished Game 1 with a KDA of 2/6/19. Playing as Nyx Assassin in Game 2, he performed his role superbly by catching out EG's heroes when they least expected it. Working beautifully with fn on Mirana, together they were able to land perfect Arrows to create seven-second stuns that EG couldn't handle.
