Advances to the next round at PGL Bucharest
March 9, 2018
Apart from getting completely shut out in Game 2, Mind_Control played a great series in Liquid's 2-1 win over EG. He finished with an overall KDA of 7/6/25.
Mind_Control played a fantastic Dragon Knight in Game 1. His quick Blink Dagger (13 minutes) let Liquid find a series of extremely valuable kills on EG's cores to drag out the game when Liquid was behind early. Mind_Control and the rest of Liquid were able to hold on with some scrappy skirmish wins, giving Miracle the time he needed to beef up his Anti-Mage. Mind_Control finished with a 4/1/11 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Bristleback. For a moment in the early game it looked like Mind_Control might be able to pull Liquid into this game, but EG was too far ahead and playing too well. Mind_Control got totally shut out along with the rest of Liquid, finishing with a 0/3/0 KDA. In Game 3 Mind_Control played Omniknight, carrying his team to victory by making them impossible to kill. He had an excellent lane and was able to get a very quick Radiance, making him a threat in fights for more reasons than just his spells. Guardian Angel was devastating in this game too, shutting down all of EG's physical damage. Mind_Control finished with a 3/2/14 KDA.
Looks strong in a tough loss
March 8, 2018
MinD_ContRoL had a fantastic showing as Team Liquid was defeated by Evil Geniuses 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. MinD_ContRoL finished with a 12/9/25 KDA.
Liquid was clearly the better team in this match. They outfought EG early on and snowballed it into a lead that reached almost 20,000 in net worth. MinD_ContRol looked great on Batrider, but just wasn't able to keep his team together at the end. This is a tough loss for Liquid, but one that they can look back and gain confidence in knowing that they were the better team.
Brings the damage for Liquid
March 7, 2018
Mind_Control finished with a 10/4/14 KDA in a win over OG at PGL Bucharest.
Mind_Control slipped up a few times against OG but played a good game overall on Enchantress. He dealt massive damage in fights with Impetus, actually ending the game with the most damage dealt to enemy heroes on his team with 34,300. He made a few careless or cocky positioning errors that resulted in his death, but other than those this was a fantastic game from Mind_Control.
Another quiet, but solid performance
March 7, 2018
Mind_Control had a solid series for Liquid in their win against Vici Gaming in the Bucharest Major. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 2/2/13.
His Enchantress easily won the top lane against eLeVeN's Underlord. Mind_Control was causing such a problem for the Vici offlaner that they had to rotate multiple heroes to kill him off in the early game. He constantly pressured lane with just a Drums of Endurance and Vici struggled to deal with him.
Starts off PGL Bucharest with an impressive win
March 4, 2018
Mind_Control finished Liquid's win over LFY with a 4/3/13 KDA.
Mind_Control opened off the PGL Major with a Puck game. Apart from a few deaths in the early stages of the game, Mind_Control played things extremely well. He did a great job starting fights for Liquid, instantly putting LFY on the back foot in the majority of this games' engagements.
Advances to a rematch vs Vici Gaming
February 23, 2018
Mind_Control finished with an 11/11/32 overall KDA in a 2-1 win vs Secret at ESL One Katowice.
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Enchantress, starting out the series with a commanding win. He did extremely well in lane, and managed to snowball with his team into fast towers and control of the game. With good positioning in fights and his Untouchable passive, Mind_Control was almost literally untouchable. He finished the game with a 6/1/15 KDA. Mind_Control played Enchantress again in Game 2, but didn't have nearly the same success. This time there were heroes on the Secret side with powerful burst that could bring him down almost instantly. Without his quasi-immortality, Mind_Control's aggressive playstyle came back to bite him in this game. He finished with a 3/7/7 KDA. In Game 3 Mind_Control played Puck. He played well, although this wasn't the flashiest Puck game of Mind_Control's career. He got the job done initiating for his team though, setting them up for a clean Game 3 win. He finished with a 2/3/10 KDA.
Great series from the Liquid offlane
February 22, 2018
Mind_Control was on point in both games of Liquid's 2-0 win over OG at ESL One Katowice. He finished with an overall KDA of 10/5/20.
Mind_Control played a great Tiny in Game 1, moving around the map to find kills and create space while still managing to transition into a major damage threat in the late game. He also provided some nice initiation for his team, as well as the burst to instantly bring down any support. He finished with a 6/4/11 KDA. Mind_Control took control of the map again in Game 2, this time on Nature's Prophet. He made fantastic use of his Teleportation ability, showing just why this hero was so feared in his hands at The International 7. Mind_Control was in almost every fight of Liquid's quick Game 2 win. He finished with a 4/1/9 KDA.
Solid performance from Liquid offlaner
February 1, 2018
Mind_Control once again churned out a solid series for Liquid in their dismantling of LGD in Starladder. The soft-spoken offlaner finished with a KDA of 12/12/29.
He kicked off the series with Beastmaster in the offlane. Mind_Control easily won his match up against Chalice's Underlord thanks to a four-minute Medallion of Courage. His momentum carried all the way to the end game, as he made so many plays for Liquid. In Game 2, Mind_Control's Tiny dual-laned with GH's Io and wreaked havoc. They were controlling the game from the get-go and LGD could not find any breathing room.
Superb initiation secures an easy win for Liquid
January 27, 2018
Mind_Control played a great series in a 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at ESL One Genting. He finished with an overall KDA of 14/3/25.
In Game 1 Mind_Control played an excellent Tiny. With support from gh's Io, Mind_Control was an unstoppable wrecking machine. His burst damage and control in fights was a huge part of what Liquid take such commanding wins all game. He finished with a 6/1/11 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played an excellent Sand King. His initiation was fantastic all game thanks to a very early 11-minute Blink Dagger that really opened things up for Liquid. Mind_Control did a great job not only starting fights but also protecting his cores and even finding some kills on his own. He finished with an 8/2/14 KDA.
Excellent series from Liquid offlane
January 24, 2018
MinD_ContRoL finished with an impressive 11/6/24 overall KDA in a 2-0 win over Na'Vi at ESL One Genting.
MinD_ContRoL played Dragon Knight in Game 1. This has been a hero/lane combination that is mostly unique to Liquid, and it works in large part thanks to MinD_ContRoL's individual skill. He somehow managed to only die once in lane against a Razor, letting him scale well into the mid game as a durable frontline initiator for Liquid. He finished with a 6/1/9 KDA. In Game 2 MinD_ContRoL played a fantastic Legion Commander. Despite his deaths, he didn't give up any Duel damage and was a critical part of setting up kills for Liquid. MinD_ContRoL was instrumental in hunting down Na'Vi's heroes like Shadow Fiend and Nature's Prophet who were looking to split-push. He finished with a 5/5/15 KDA.
Perfect game from Liquid offlane
January 23, 2018
Mind_Control found a lot of farm for himself in Liquid's victory over PENTA in ESL One Genting. The offlaner finished with a KDA of 2/0/17.
Mind_Control's Sand King easily outclassed Oliver's Abaddon in his lane. He was uncontested because his supports were being kept busy by Kuroky and GH. His 11 minute Blink Dagger was extremely fast and this allowed him to take over the game with a whopping 17 assists.
Shut down after a dominant Game 1
December 2, 2017
Mind_Control was unusually quiet in a 1-2 loss to Team Secret at the Dreamleague Season 8 Major. He finished with an overall KDA of 6/17/23.
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Omniknight. Although he didn't manage to secure any kills for himself, Mind_Control was still a key piece of Liquid's game plan. His healing and the protection from both Repel and Guardian Angel were a huge part of what allowed Liquid to play such an aggressive game and overwhelm Secret. Mind_Control finished with a 0/2/9 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Doom. This was not a very successful game for Mind_Control and the rest of Liquid. It was difficult for him to find good Doom targets without putting himself in extreme danger. He finished the game with a 3/7/7 KDA. In Game 3 Mind_Control played Queen of Pain. Although his burst damage was certainly threatening, Mind_Control didn't feel as if he had very much influence over the game. He died a lot at all stages of the game, and wasn't able to do much split pushing. He finished with a 3/8/6 KDA.
Consistency once again key for the Liquid off laner
November 3, 2017
Mind_Control once again proved to be the consistent force for Team Liquid in their victory against Immortals in Dota Pit. The Bulgarian off laner finished with a KDA of 20/12/24.
In Game 1, Mind_Control was on the increasingly popular Brewmaster. He got a decent 12-minute Blink Dagger, and his Primal Split micro was on point during fights. He often took out two heroes in team fights with Hurl Boulder and Cyclone. While he may have died eight times, each death was a meaningful trade for Liquid. In Game 2, Mind_Control's Puck did as much as his Brewmaster without dying as much. His 13-minute Blink Dagger was an excellent timing despite Mind_Control not having the best early game. His initiations in the game really allowed Team Liquid to steamroll towards the victory.
Unusual but effective in series against Newbee
November 2, 2017
Mind_Control finished with an overall KDA of 10/13/46 in Team Liquid's 2-0 win over Newbee at the DotaPit Minor.
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Nyx Assassin. He actually opted to start in the middle lane to ensure Liquid got the lane matchups that they wanted. This worked out well enough for Mind_Control, who was able to get just as much as he would have in a side lane. As the game went later, he provided a lot of critical vision for his team as well as starting fights. He finished with a 3/8/26 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Axe. He started out strong, but there was a large stretch where he felt pretty useless. Liquid were able to hold back Newbee though, and last out until Mind_Control's hero went back to being strong. His late-game initiation was very good, enabling a classic Liquid comeback through superior teamwork. He finished with a 7/5/20 KDA.
An integral piece of a hard-fought win
October 28, 2017
Mind_Control finished with an overall KDA of 20/10/40 in Team Liquid's 2-0 win over Keen Gaming at the ESL One Hamburg Major.
In Game 1 Mind_Control played Doom. It was a slow start for Mind_Control, but he was able to quietly farm and become a rock for Liquid. He was extremely durable, which let him get off a lot of Infernal Blades, as well as making sure Mind_Control was able to get off Doom reliably in fights. He finished with a 15/5/28 KDA. In Game 2 Mind_Control played Venomancer. He was solid in this game, doing what a Venomancer does. In fights Mind_Control was usually able to get off his spells, dealing tons of damage. He also provided critical vision for his team with Plague Wards, letting Liquid take the fights they needed to claim the series. He finished with a 5/5/12 KDA.
