June 10, 2018
RodjER finished with a bloodthirsty 36/21/41 overall KDA in a 2-1 win over PSG.LGD at the China Supermajor.
ANALYSIS
RodjER got crushed on Leshrac in Game 1. He had a tough lane and proceeded to get run over along with the rest of Virtus.pro. He finished with a 5/9/6 KDA. In Game 2 RodjER came back in style on Skywrath Mage. He played extremely well in a tense hour-long game. In the end, RodjER's late-game damage was a huge part of what gave VP the win in the end. He finished with a 17/8/21 KDA and 53,400 damage done. Game 3 was another fantastic Skywrath Mage performance from RodjER. He once again gave VP a tremendous damage edge in fights, finishing with a 14/4/14 KDA.
Sends Optic packing
June 9, 2018
RodjER played well in a convincing 2-0 win vs Optic at the China Supermajor. He finished with a 3/14/40 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
RodjER added another excellent game to his list of Sand King performances. He played well in fights, using his mobility to set up multiple hero stuns into Epicenters. He did die a lot, but it was usually after popping all his damage and stunning into the middle of Optic's team. He finished with a 3/8/21 KDA. Despite not getting a single kill in Game 2, RodjER's Rubick was extremely effective all game. There were some great spells to steal, and RodjER was able to spend most of the game with either Purification Burrowstrike or sometimes even Guardian Angel. He finished with a 0/6/19 KDA.
Comes back to take the series after a rough Game 2
June 5, 2018
RodjER finished a 2-1 win vs Newbee at the China Supermajor with an overall KDA of 9/17/36.
ANALYSIS
RodjER played Skywrath Mage in Game 1, dealing huge damage to Newbee. His positioning in fights was very good, with three of his four deaths coming in lane. He finished with a 5/4/15 KDA. In Game 2 RodjER had a rough time on Sand King. He died a lot in the mid-game, setting back his Blink Dagger timing until around 23 minutes. By that point Newbee had already secured a comfortable advantage, and RodjER wasn't able to successfully initiate. He finished with a 1/10/7 KDA. RodjER played Sand King again in Game 3, redeeming his earlier performance. He moved around the map extremely well with his team, racking up a huge early lead that VP were able to snowball to a quick win. RodjER finished with a 3/3/14 KDA.
Shines with the next level playmaking
May 26, 2018
Rodjer was on another level against Pain Gaming at ESL One Birmingham. The flashy support finished with a KDA of 9/8/54.
ANALYSIS
Rodjer got the kills after drawing First Blood against Tavo's Brewmaster. He kept the ball going with constant aggression against Tavo with more successive kills against Pain's offlaner in the laning stage. His Hookshots throughout the game were perfect and he was always at the right place at the right time for the CIS squad. In Game 2, Rodjer played Elder Titan to support Ramzes in the safelane. He continued his impressive Game 1 right off the bat drawing First Blood against Kingrd's Clockwerk. In Game 2, Rodjer played the roaming Elder Titan. He got involved early in the mid lane and safe lane securing kills for both Ramzes and No[o]ne. In the late game, his Echo Stomps were the nail in the coffin against Pain Gaming.
Takes over the game on Chen
May 24, 2018
RodjER finished with a 4/2/14 KDA against Optic at ESL Birmingham.
ANALYSIS
This was the second time Virtus.pro has broken out Chen for RodjER at ESL Birmingham, and it has looked extremely scary. Paired with No[o]ne's Death Prophet in both games RodjER was able to easily take control of the early game, snowballing kills into towers which in turn just increased the Virtus.pro lead even more.
Early pressure leads to a quick win
May 24, 2018
RodjER finished a dominant win over OG at ESL Birmingham with a 2/1/16 KDA.
ANALYSIS
RodjER's Chen was very effective against OG. He put a huge amount of pressure onto the bottom lane in the early game, both securing Ramzes' game and shutting down both N0tail and Fly. RodjER was able to quickly help his team snowball this advantage into tower pushes and run down OG in just 25 minutes.
Excellent saves keep Virtus pro in the game
May 5, 2018
RodjER was great on Tusk in a narrowly won best-of-one elimination game vs Mineski at EPICENTER XL. He finished with a 3/9/14 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Although he probably didn't enjoy dying all the time trying to save his teammates, it was a critical part of Virtus.pro's eventual comeback win. In many cases, RodjER was able to trade his life directly to ensure that one of his cores survived.
Undefeated streak on Sand King climbs to 14 wins in a row
May 2, 2018
RodjER dominated Secret in a 2-0 win at EPICENTER XL. He finished with a 2/9/26 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 RodjER played a fantastic Sand King. His positioning all game was on point, and he was able to constantly weave through fights providing huge disables and damage. He finished with a 1/2/12 KDA. RodjER played Sand King again in Game 2, delivering a repeat of his extremely impressive Game 1. Since his time on Virtus.pro, RodjER hasn't lost a single game on Sand King, and this doesn't look to be changing anytime soon. He finished with a 1/7/14 KDA.
Entertaining series from Virtus.pro's hotshot support
April 29, 2018
RodjER finished a 2-1 win against Newbee at EPICENTER XL with an overall KDA of 10/24/51.
ANALYSIS
RodjER began the series on Earth Spirit, moving around the map in the early game and helping his teammates win their lanes. In the mid and later stages of the game, he was a critical component of Virtus.pro's teamfight. He not only provided some great stuns, silences and damage but was also the main Lifestealer vessel for Ramzes. RodjER finished with a 1/7/18 KDA. In Game 2 RodjER played Pudge, landing some nice hooks but unable to make enough of a late-game difference to stand up to Newbee's lineup. He finished with a 6/13/17 KDA. In Game 3 RodjER played Sand King. His initiation all game was extremely good. Although he died in a few fights, he was always able to inflict huge damage with his spells and keep people locked down for his team to follow up. He finished with a 3/4/26 KDA.
Shows off his chops on Pudge in Game 2
April 27, 2018
RodjER played a solid series after throwing Game 1 in a 2-1 win against paiN Gaming in the group stages of EPICENTER XL. He finished with a 6/23/54 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 RodjER played Slardar. His early game went decently, but he died five times in a row while close to Blink Dagger. After he got it, Virtus.pro lost a pair of disastrous engagements that completely threw away their early lead. RodjER ended up with a 1/12/19 KDA. RodjER played Pudge in Game 2, getting a chance to style on paiN in a very quick and one-sided win. RodjER did die a lot, but he set up so many kills and saves that it was more than worth it. After the early lane phase any hook was an easy kill, snowballing Virtus.pro to an easy win. He finished with a 5/6/11 KDA. In Game 3 RodjER played Io. He was once again the person on the team to die the most, but he buffed up the rest of Virtus.pro so much that they were able to overwhelmingly win every fight. He finished with a 0/5/24 KDA in a second crushing victory for Virtus.pro.
Rough game, but his team makes up for it
April 6, 2018
Rodjer recovered from his rough start to help Virtus.pro to victory against Vici Gaming. The former Natus Vincere player finished with a KDA of 5/7/12.
ANALYSIS
Rodjer played Sand King in the elimination match. His early game wasn't the normal fare we've come to known Rodjer for as he was often the only one getting killed by Vici. His Blink Dagger was delayed to 17 minutes, but once he got it he was finally proving his worth to VP.
Rolls over Evil Geniuses
April 5, 2018
RodjER finished with a 3/5/21 KDA on Earth Spirit in a win vs Evil Geniuses at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
Despite leading his team in deaths, RodjER played a great Earth Spirit against EG. He hit some amazing stuns and silences, and most of his deaths did come from putting himself in dangerous positions to secure kills on EG. He was massively influential in teamfights too, with only one member of EG getting a Black King Bar to block his spells.
Hard series on Chen
April 4, 2018
RodjER finished with a 3/13/23 overall KDA in a rough 0-2 loss to Team Liquid at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
RodjER had a rough Game 1 on Chen. He couldn't get much done in the early game, and by the time he had farmed up his Aghamin's Scepter Virtus Pro were down two lanes of barracks. RodjER and VP managed to hold though, dragging out the game to nearly 50 minutes before Liquid finally destroyed the Ancient. RodjER finished with a 1/8/10 KDA. RodjER played Chen again in Game 2 to unfortunately similar results. After VP's early game got shut down, RodjER went for a desperate Hand of Midas at 22 minutes to try and catch up, but by this point it was far too late for him. He finished with a 2/5/13 KDA.
Impressive game despite a poor KDA
April 1, 2018
RodjER finished with a 1/11/16 KDA on Sand King in a win vs Team Secret at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
Even though he led the server in deaths, RodjER's initiations were a huge part of why Virtus.pro were ever able to actually take fights. He was the only initiation on his team, a huge responsibility that RodjER handled expertly.
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.
ANALYSIS
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.
