Stellar series from the Secret offlane
January 5, 2018
Fata dominated the first game of Team Secret's 2-1 win against Evil Geniuses. He finished with an overall KDA of 13/13/28.
ANALYSIS
Fata played an amazing game on Razor to start the series. He got a nice start in the safe lane while he team laned aggressively, and transitioned into a mid-game powerhouse. Fata was crucial to Secret's success, buying the time that MidOne needed to get his Invoker back into the game. Fata finished with a 5/2/11 KDA. In Game 2 Fata had a rough time on Puck. His attempts to initiate were usually thwarted by EG's powerful counter-initiation, and once Fata fell behind it was all downhill from there. He finished with a 1/4/1 KDA. In Game 3 Fata played Legion Commander. This was a pretty average game all things considered, but Fata came up big for his team when they needed it. Despite giving up quite a few deaths over the course of the game, his presence in fights was often crucial to Secret's game plan. He finished with a 7/7/16 KDA.
Fights his way to a reasonable statline
January 4, 2018
Fata earned his stats in difficult fashion as Team Secret lost to Mineski in the Group Stages of Captain's Draft 4. Fata finished with a 9/8/11 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Queen of Pain was able to bring some pain; not as much pain as was needed, however. Fata held his own in fights for the most part after being picked off repeatedly at the start of the match, but fell off again in the late game to give Mineski the lead for the final time. Mineski was the better team in this match.
Fights his way to tough win
January 4, 2018
Fata was always in the action as Team Secret defeated Team Empire in the Group Stages of Captain's Draft 4. Fata finished with a 11/7/13 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Fata was not afraid of anything in this game. Playing Axe, Fata was always looking for a fight and he found them often as he finished with a game-high 11 kills. His late-game kills were especially key, as it was part of a game-saving comeback for Secret to start the tournament out.
Gets his revenge after a brutal Game 1 loss
December 2, 2017
Fata showed off his mental fortitude in Team Secret's 2-1 win against Team Liquid at the DreamLeague Season 8 Major. He finished with a 12/16/41 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
Fata started out the series with a very rough Abaddon game. He received a lot of hate in lane from Liquid's supports, and would die three times before ten minutes. He then went on to rack up the most deaths in the game with seven. Fata was never given the space or time to really catch up, and finished with a 0/7/2 KDA. Game 2 was a much more pleasant affair for Fata. His Brewmaster was extremely effective all game, and let Secret take some very close and crucial fight wins over Liquid. Fata's ability to turn around a fight is what gave Secret the time to build up their lead and eventually take control of the game. Fata finished with a 4/5/20 KDA. In Game 3 Fata played Legion Commander. His performance over the series improved a lot, culminating in a great Game 3 performance to seal a spot in the grand final for Liquid. He was on-point with his Duel targets, often blinking past the Liquid front-line to secure a critical support kill or lock down Queen of Pain. He finished with an 8/4/19 KDA.
Good all-around series for Secret off lane
December 1, 2017
Fata played a solid series for Team Secret in their win over Newbee. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 5/3/17.
ANALYSIS
Fata kicked off the series with Abaddon in the off lane. He didn't get to contest Moogy's farm as much as he would have liked, but he did find a lot of farm for himself. He got both Vladimir's Offering and Solar Crest before the 22-minute mark, and provided a lot of good utility for his team. He played a good frontline game for Team Secret and didn't even die a single time. Fata then switched it up to the more elusive Puck in Game 2. He had a poor early game but still found a respectable 16-minute Blink Dagger. His initiations weren't super effective, but were enough to swing fights in Secret's favor.
Wishes he could have done more
November 24, 2017
Fata had a forgettable time against LFY in their loss at the Perfect World Masters. The mid-turned-off laner finished with a KDA of 5/10/5.
ANALYSIS
He started the series with off-lane Tidehunter. Fata did very well early, finding good farm for himself as well as harassing the enemy carry. He picked up a 10-minute Hood of Defiance and was often in the thick of the action. His Ravages were okay, but his team wasn't really farmed enough to capitalize on Fata's initiations. In Game 2, Fata tried his luck with the off-lane Pugna. His early game was again pretty effective. He pushed out the lanes as best he could and dished out decent damage, but he honestly should and could have done more for his team.
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.
