Triumphant return to mid for the veteran
April 30, 2018
s4 proved to be the difference maker in his return to mid for OG at Epicenter XL. The veteran finished with a KDA of 23/11/25.
ANALYSIS
s4's opening game on the Dragon Knight against MidOne's Gyrocopter was all sorts of wrong. He died numerous times early on and didn't recover at all. He even had a curious play where he prioritized the courier in an important clash over enemy heroes. Despite the rough start, his performance in Game 2 and 3 was highly efficient. He shifted over to the Razor in the second game of the series to tremendous effect. He made sure Ace's Lifestealer had as difficult a time as possible. By the 25-minute mark, he farmed himself a Eul's, a Black King Bar, and an Aghanim's Scepter and was just taking names for OG. In Game 3, his Leshrac was just a picture of perfection. Despite being bullied out of lane by MidOne's Lina early on, s4 managed to turn it around and find a counter-kill. Afterward, he was just finding kills left and right for OG.
Helps secure key kills in an OG win
March 30, 2018
s4 finished with a 3/5/16 KDA in a win over Optic at DAC 2018.
ANALYSIS
This was a slow to start game for s4, but after a rough early and mid game he managed to help lock down some kills that blew things wide open for OG. The unique lockdown from Duel was critical in OG's ability to either bring down a key core like Terrorblade, or just find the pick-offs that kept OG in the game when they were fighting from behind.
Struggles to get going
March 23, 2018
S4 had a quiet series against Newbee in OG's elimination in Dreamleague Season 9. The former Alliance star finished with a KDA of 7/9/14.
ANALYSIS
S4 kicked off the series with his signature Puck in the mid lane. He got the better end of the laning stage against Sccc's Gyrocopter, but his decision to go for a Veil of Discord before a Blink Dagger really hurt his team. OG couldn't take a fight without his initiation and his Dagger came when it was too late at the 17-minute mark, when Newbee had taken firm control of the game. In Game 2, his Faceless Void had a successful laning stage, but it never really amounted to much. His Chronospheres were good but lacked any real followup from OG.
Played a good game but couldn't take down Liquid
March 7, 2018
s4 finished with a 3/4/21 KDA in a well-played loss to Liquid at PGL Bucharest.
ANALYSIS
s4 played a great Batrider in a close elimination game. He was a massive threat to Liquid for the majority of the game, something that seems rare for Batrider these days. Unfortunately for OG, s4's effectiveness seemed to plummet in the latest stages of the game. There was no good target for initiation anymore at this point.
Out of ESL One Katowice
February 22, 2018
s4 finished a hard 0-2 loss to Liquid with a 3/12/15 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Batrider in Game 1, returning to an old comfort hero but showing some of its major weaknesses. s4 played a decent game, but had a miserable time initiating against Liquid's lineup. Kuroky's Oracle was constantly in position to totally shut down s4, and even finding a target to Lasso was difficult by itself. s4 finished with a 2/9/11 KDA. In Game 2 s4 played Brewmaster. When he was able to get off Primal Split in fights OG actually found some success in fights, but these moments were extremely far between. He finished the game with a 1/3/4 KDA.
Can't put together complete game
February 21, 2018
s4 played a large role in fights as OG lost to Vici Gaming 1-0 in the first round of ESL One Katowice. s4 finished with a 3/3/14 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Everything started out beautifully for s4 and OG. s4 helped control all of the early fights for his team, as he worked his way to a team-high 14 assists in the loss. However, the majority of his numbers came early as OG was not able to keep the momentum going throughout the match. OG was sent to the lower bracket with their title hopes on the line.
Unable to play from behind
January 9, 2018
s4 finished OG's 2-0 loss to Vici Gaming in the semi-finals of Captains Draft 4 with an average KDA 4/8/10.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Spirit Breaker in Game 1 with limited effect. He was able to farm some items, but quickly fell off as Vici Gaming started their ganks. In Game 2, s4 played Clockwork. While he was able to accelerate the progress of some of his teammates he fell off to hard towards the end of the game and became more fodder than formidable.
No problem playing from behind
January 6, 2018
s4 showed some impressive mental fortitude, battling his way back into both games of a 2-0 win against Empire at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 10/11/30.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 s4 played Brewmaster. He started the game off by dying four times in lane, but after 10 minutes he only gave up a single additional death. His initiation was fantastic, and he was able to provide some excellent control in fights that let OG pick targets with a lot of freedom. s4 finished with a 6/5/17 KDA. s4 delivered a repeat of his Game 1 performance in Game 2, this time on Centaur Warrunner. He died a lot in the early game, but was able to fight his way back into the game by grouping up and taking small engagements with his team. Eventually, he was farmed enough to start full fledged fights, at which point OG completely took over the game. s4 finished with a 4/6/13 KDA.
Bounces back after poor start
January 4, 2018
S4 played a solid game for OG in their win against compLexity in Captain's Draft 4.0. He finished with a KDA of 5/3/12.
ANALYSIS
S4's Clockwerk in the only game of the series had some early struggles. His 20-minute Blade Mail was a lot later than he would have liked, but his incredible Hookshots in the latter stages of the game really allowed OG to take control.
Consistent as always
December 18, 2017
s4 finished OG's 2-1 victory over compLexity in the Wild Card Finals at The Summit 8 with an average KDA of 2/5/11.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, s4 played the damage sponge as Abaddon, helping to protect Resolut1on and keep his carry from a single death. s4 finished with a 0/5/11 KDA. s4's Puck in Game 2 got off to a hot start but couldn't recoup the losses from the other lanes, finishing with a 2/7/4 KDA. In Game 3, s4 came through as Brewmaster, soaking up damage and controlling fights as N0tail was split pushing. S4 finished Game 2 with a 4/4/19 KDA.
Solid performance from the OG offlane
December 16, 2017
s4 played well in a commanding 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 11/4/22.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 s4 played Puck. This was a strong start to the series for s4 and the rest of OG, taking a relatively easy win over EG. s4 was very effective at setting up fights for OG, as well as contributing to bursting down enemy heroes. He finished with a 6/1/13 KDA. In Game 2 s4 played the coveted Omniknight, showing off just why this hero is banned so often. He made his team so incredibly difficult to kill all game. Between his healing, Guardian Angel and the evasion from Resolut1on's Magnetic Fields, OG was impossible to fight into. s4 finished with a 5/3/9 KDA.
Classic performance from the veteran
December 8, 2017
s4 played a great game for OG against TNC in MDL Macau. The Swedish off laner finished with a KDA of 12/6/24.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Puck in their only match against TNC. He was aggressively zoned out by 1437 and couldn't find a lot of farm or experience. He did still buy a Blink Dagger at 17-minute mark. His game then just improved from there. His Dream Coils were efficient and he was making really good space. Whenever TNC killed him they had to work for it which opened up the map for N0tail and Resolution.
Uses solid start to control the game
December 8, 2017
s4 had an excellent game for OG in their win against LFY. The Swedish off laner finished with a KDA of 8/3/12.
ANALYSIS
s4 went with Brewmaster in the only game of the series. He had as much farm he could get in the early game as an off laner. The nine-minute Blink Dagger was key in keeping up the tempo for Resolut1on. He then followed it up with a 17-minute Vladimir's Offering, which showed his dedication to just help his team win fights. His Brewling control was also efficient, as he utilized the full kit and disabled the enemy as much as possible.
Struggling to find his feet in the new patch
November 4, 2017
s4 finished with a 1/5/12 KDA in OG's loss to Newbee in the loser's bracket at the DotaPit Minor. OG are now eliminated.
ANALYSIS
s4 played Centaur Warrunner and had a rough time this game. He landed a couple of very nice initiations, but these came too far and few between to turn the tides in OG's favor. s4 seemed to be just a step behind the pace that Newbee was setting, and once he fell behind it was an impossible task for him to catch up.
Struggles to get anything done
September 27, 2017
S4 was far from his normal productive self as OG lost to Team Secret in the Starladder EU Qualifier Finals. The former mid laner finished with a KDA of 8/14/20.
ANALYSIS
S4's opening match on the Batrider had a few good plays early on as he got a 14-minute Blink Dagger, but as the game progressed he ended up telegraphing his intentions to his opponents. He only picked up 12 assists and couldn't even break the 300-gold-per-minute mark. S4 tried his luck with Brewmaster in Game 2. His decision to pick a greedy 17-minute Hand of Midas after a good 11-minute Blink Dagger ended up greatly hurting his progression and his team's chances of winning.
