Team Secret
Could not rise to the occasion
October 29, 2017
Fata had a rough series for Team Secret in their lost to Virtus.pro at the ESL One Hamburg Final. The German offlaner finished with a KDA of 6/17/16.
ANALYSIS
Fata went with Pugna in Game 1 of the series. He won the early game against 9pasha's Brewmaster. He tried shoving out lanes often with Nether Blast but his map awareness was questionable as he got killed often. His decision to buy a Dagon had no impact for his team. In Game 2, his Magnus was a better showing. He got a respectable 15-minute Blink Dagger. His Reverse Polarities in the game often got multiple heroes but he could not get the perfect one to change Secret's fate.
Can't overcome Immortals' aggression
October 22, 2017
Fata finished Team Secret's 2-1 loss to Immortals during the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor with a final KDA of 11/18/20.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata's Puck struggled in lane but quickly picked up on the back of Ace's success as Meepo. His AOE lockdown from Dream Coil was heavily utilized to trap Immortals within Wukong's Command. In Game 2, Fata's Nature's Prophet was tormented by Monkey King and Nightstalker. Despite drafting a Spirit Breaker to keep Fata safe, Team Secret was unable to keep them from dismantling their strategy. In Game 3, Fata played a safe lane Necrophos. He lost his lane but was able to keep himself alive during the fights until later in the game as Secret was unable to break high ground.
Struggles to have an impact in a loss to Immortals
October 19, 2017
Fata finished with an overall KDA of 5/20/20 in Team Secret's 0-2 loss to Immortals in the group stages of the PGL Bucharest Minor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Doom. After Secret fell behind in the mid game, Fata continued to play a solid game. Unfortunately for him, Doom is a lot less effective when playing from behind. He had trouble getting the spell off on Immortal's heroes, especially Puck and Pugna, the two strongest spell-damage threats. He finished with a 2/12/14 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Brewmaster. He managed to turn around a fight or two, but Immortals were playing much too fast for Fata to have much impact. When his ultimate was on cooldown, Fata was effectively useless in fights and Immortals rarely stopped fighting all game. Fata finished with a 3/8/6 KDA.
Lukewarm performance in a loss to Team Liquid
October 15, 2017
Fata finished with an overall KDA of 9/7/21 in Team Secret's 0-2 loss to Team Liquid at the Starladder iLeague Minor. Team Secret are eliminated, finishing in 3rd-4th place.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Nature's Prohphet. He played well, but in the end not well enough to stop Liquid. Once Liquid started to pull ahead of Secret in the mid-game, Fata wasn't able to do enough split-pushing or damage in fights to keep Secret in it. He finished with a 5/3/14 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Puck. He was once again playing well in the early-game, but things quickly unraveled. A series of disastrous fights completely threw Secret's lead away, and there wasn't anything Fata could do on his own. He finished with a 4/4/7 KDA.
Solid performance despite a 1-2 loss
October 13, 2017
Fata finished with an overall KDA of 12/13/43 in Team Secret's 1-2 loss to Na'Vi at the Starladder iLeague Minor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Doom. He was an absolute monster in this game. Not only did he do well in lane, but Fata was a terror for Na'Vi as the game went on. He went for a Shadow Blade that paid off in spades, leading to numerous solo kills with Doom, as well as letting Secret start fights with ease. He finished with a 5/0/13 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Batrider. He had a pretty decent early game, but wasn't able to find kills in the same way he was in Game 1. As the game went on, Secret's deficient worsened and even good initiations didn't end in the kills they needed. Fata finished with a 2/7/6 KDA. In Game 3 Fata played Underlord. He did a pretty nice job moving Secret around the map with Dark Rift, but his hero was a bit underwhelming in this game. Na'Vi built so many Force Staves that he couldn't really count on Pit of Malice to root people, and Fata built himself for durability instead of damage. He finished with a 5/6/24 KDA.
Looks right at home in the off lane
September 27, 2017
Fata is looking like a natural in the off lane as Team Secret make short work of OG in the Starladder EU Qualifier Finals. The former Cloud9 player finished with a KDA of 17/8/26.
ANALYSIS
Fata went with the off-lane Necrophos in the first game of the series. A noted favorite pick of his from his mid lane days, Fata made the hero look like a staple in the off lane. His 11-minute Hood of Defiance into 26-minute Radiance was a commendable feat. Plus he also racked up the game-high 13 kills with his on-point Reaper Scythes. In Game 2, he went with the more mobile Puck. His stats weren't as good as his Necrophos but it was still a fine showing. His 20-minute Blink Dagger was slower than usual but he only died two times while initiating impressively for his team.
Continues to show off flexibility after switch to the offlane
September 25, 2017
Fata finished with an overall KDA of 10/4/27 in a 2-0 win over mousesports in the PGL Bucharest EU Qualifier grand finals.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Nature's Prophet. He played an excellent game, expertly avoiding mouz's focus while pushing and farming all over the map. He was also able to show up to fights and pack quite a punch, finishing with a 4/1/14 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Doom. His initiations onto Madara's Alchemist were a huge part of what won Secret this game. Fata was able to get off Doom before Chemical Rage consistently, effectively removing Alchemist's 19,000 net worth from the game. This allowed Secret to take convincing fight wins, and end the game quickly. Fata finished with a 6/3/13 KDA.
Team Secret's new offlaner
September 5, 2017
Team Secret announced on Tuesday via Twitter that Fata would be joining the team in the offlane role.
ANALYSIS
Not unfamiliar with the solo lane, Fata will be changing from the middle lane to the offlane for Team Secret, which may raise some concerns as his recent stint with Cloud9 was less than inspiring. Fata may take some time to adjust to his new role, but with MidOne and Ace comfortable in multiple laning positions we could see Team Secret swapping their cores around to create confusion.
Can't pull through for the late-game win
August 9, 2017
Fata finished with a KDA of 5/7/5 in Cloud9's loss to Team Empire in the elimination match at The International 2017.
ANALYSIS
Fata played as Dragon Knight in this single-game series. Although he performed well early on against fn on Queen of Pain, his ability to tank during teamfights didn't last as the round dragged on. Team Empire kept finding the easy pickoffs on Cloud9's supports, limiting the space for Fata to farm or dish out damage in confrontations. Combined with Chronosphere, Static Field, and Sonic Wave, Team Empire's chemistry was too much for Fata to handle, and Cloud9 eventually lost in 62 minutes.
Heavily focused down in a 0-2 loss
August 4, 2017
Fata finished with a 6/10/18 overall KDA in Cloud9's 0-2 loss to iG in the group stages of The International 7.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Death Prophet. The game started strong for Fata and Cloud 9. Fata was dealing good damage in early fights, and baiting iG into bad positions with his survivability. This didn't continue for the whole game though; Cloud9 lost a series of bad fights and gave up critical objectives to iG. Fata died multiple times when it counted most by underestimating the damage output of Terrorblade, finishing the game with a 4/4/10 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Templar Assassin. There were a couple of moments where it looked like Fata was going to bring the damage that Cloud9 needed to stop iG, but he couldn't stay alive in the late game. There was too much damage from iG for his Refraction to be very useful, and Fata just melted to the combined damage of iG. He finished with a 2/6/8 KDA.
Solid in both games, but only wins one
August 3, 2017
Fata finished with an overall KDA of 9/4/7 in Cloud 9's 1-1 split series vs Virtus.pro in the group stages of The International 7.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Medusa. Fata played very well in this game. He was the rock of his team who provided a huge majority of the damage. In addition to this, his Stone Gaze offered a surprising amount of control vs Virtus.pro in this game. Fata finished with a nice 4/1/7 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Puck. He had a pretty rough game all things considered. Cloud 9's ability to take fights hinged almost completely on Fata's ability to find an opening, and he was just too far behind. Even when he managed to find what looked like a decent fight, Virtus.pro were always able to strike back. Fata finished with a 5/3/0 KDA.
Lackluster performance contributes to loss
August 2, 2017
Fata finished Cloud9's 2-0 loss to OG during the group stages of The International 7 with a final KDA of 9/12/16.
ANALYSIS
Fata played Queen of Pain in Game 1 and Lina in Game 2, playing both in the middle lane. Having to lane against ana proved to be Fata's undoing as the young mid laner proved to outclass him even before JerAx got involved. Fata will have to improve immensely if Cloud9 hope to make it out of the group stages.
NP's middle lane puts on a solid show in a win over Empire
June 16, 2017
Fata played a good series in Team NP's 2-1 win over Empire at The Summit 7. He finished with an overall KDA of 18/12/36.
ANALYSIS
Fata played Puck in Game 1. He had a pretty nice game apart from a couple of deaths from playing extremely cocky. Fata didn't manage to get many kills for himself, but he did lead NP in assists. Fata finished with a 3/3/16 KDA. Fata played Puck again in Game 2. He was much less impressive this time. He didn't do as well in lane, and his first few rotations went completely wrong. Fata wasn't able to control fights in the same way he was in Game 1 because Empire picked a much more elusive lineup. Fata finished with a 2/4/1 KDA. In Game 3 Fata played Queen of Pain. He played a very strong game to close out the series. The game lasted over an hour, but Fata managed to keep himself relevant for all of it. He scaled very well into the late game with a mixed damage build. He finished with a 13/5/19 KDA.
Decent plays can't cut it
June 15, 2017
Fata struggled to take control in Team NP's 2-1 loss to LGD at The Summit 7. He finished with a final KDA of 25/16/21.
ANALYSIS
It was a difficult series for Fata. In Game 1 he went as Bristleback, and kept finding himself the victim of LGD's Flaming Lasso from eLeVeN on Batrider. Being taken out of fights early is never good sign when playing Bristleback, and he finished this round with a KDA of 5/7/6. In Game 2 it seemed as though Fata could do no wrong. Playing as Queen of Pain, he complete destroyed the field, ending with a KDA of 16/1/13, and dished out 39,499 damage. Unfortunately he couldn't recreate his performance in Game 3 as Lina. He was shut down early by some great rotations to the middle lane from LGD, and was never able to get back on track. He ended this match with a KDA of 4/8/2.
Solid individual performance just not enough to clinch a win
May 28, 2017
Fata played well, but crumbled in the final game of Team NP's 1-2 loss to Evil Geniuses in the lower bracket finals of the Manila Masters. He finished with a 27/18/22 KDA. Team NP finish the event in third place.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Fata played Queen of Pain in what was a very strong showing for him. He did well in lane and transitioned well into NP's major source of burst damage. He was extremely difficult for anyone on Evil Geniuses to lock down, giving him almost free reign in fights. He finished with an 8/3/6 KDA. In Game 2 Fata played Ember Spirit. He played a very impressive and high-octane game despite NP losing in the end. Fata was very effective in fights, but eventually Evil Geniuses became durable enough to survive his damage. Fata attempted to scale into the late-game with a Radiance, but it just wasn't enough. He finished with a 19/10/12 KDA, leading his team in both kills and deaths. In Game 3 Fata played Bristleback middle. After playing a very good overall tournament, Fata went out on an unfortunately bad game. Even in NP's losses, Fata could still usually put up impressive personal stats, but he felt almost completely absent in this game. He kept up his net worth, but when it came to fighting he just couldn't finish anyone off. He finished with a 0/5/4 KDA.
