Vintage performance from one of OG's stars
April 30, 2018
JerAx flexed his muscles anew for OG in their important win against Secret at Epicenter XL. The flamboyant support finished with a KDA of 10/12/25.
JerAx kicked off the series with his signature Earth Spirit. He was making a lot of plays for OG with constant multiple hero Boulder Smashes and Magnetizes but the follow up just wasn't there for his team. In Game 2, his Earthshaker had much more help from his teammates. By the 15-minute mark, he got his Blink Dagger and Secret was at the mercy of his initiation. He saved the best for last with his Tusk. His Ice Shards and Snowball saves were all perfect throughout the fight. His usage of his Sigil also allowed his team to get that extra bit of vision. His 20-minute Spirit Vessel and Medallion of Courage was the final nail in the coffin Secret in the very, very dominant performance.
Excellent setup pulls OG back into the game
March 30, 2018
JerAx played Naga Siren in an OG win over Optic at DAC 2018. He finished with a 3/4/20 KDA.
JerAx did a great job this game, both setting up for fights and providing critical vision for OG. This was a difficult game for JerAx to get any vision advantage with both Batrider and Night Stalker on Optic, but JerAx did a great job using his illusions to mitigate OG's advantages.
Not enough strong plays for win
March 23, 2018
JerAx gave a commendable effort, but OG still fell short against Newbee in Dreamleague Season 9. The flashy support finished with a KDA of 5/9/22.
JerAx played Earth Spirit, a known specialty of his, in both games of the series. He showed his quality across both games of the series, but it still wasn't enough, despite his many incredible Boulder Smashes and Geomagnetic Grips.
Eliminated from the Major by Liquid
March 7, 2018
JerAx finished with a 0/7/20 KDA in a close loss to Liquid at PGL Bucharest.
JerAx was excellent on Earth Spirit, landing some great stuns and silences against Liquid, but it just wasn't enough. He moved around the map extremely well and managed to perform even better in fights. In the critical late-game fights though JerAx started to struggle.
Shut down in key elimination match
February 22, 2018
JerAx had a rough time in a 0-2 loss to Liquid at ESL One Katowice. He finished with a 1/12/13 overall KDA.
In Game 1 JerAx played Chen. He pulled off a few nice send backs on his teammates, but was overall pretty ineffective in this game against Liquid. OG never took any major early lead, and JerAx was unable to do enough to pressure the lanes. He finished with a 0/6/9 KDA. In Game 2 JerAx played Night Stalker. He gave his team some decent vision during fights, but JerAx struggled once again to be effective. His roaming didn't do much for OG, and despite providing vision he was also an easy kill for Liquid. He finished with a 1/6/4 KDA.
Falls off late in a tough loss
February 21, 2018
JerAx was not able to do enough as OG lost to Vici Gaming 1-0 in the first round of ESL One Katowice. JerAx finished with a 5/6/12 KDA.
OG should have won this game. OG was picking off Vici players early and often, working up a sizable lead in the early game. However, they were not able to do anything more with it as they started to fall off. On Chen, JerAx started to let the floodgates open as he died twice in the team fight that first started the Vici comeback. Then as OG was fighting to bring it back in the favor, JerAx died three more times to ruin any chance of a comeback of their own.
Unable to have an impact with limited hero pool
January 9, 2018
JerAx finished OG's 2-0 loss to Vici Gaming in the semi-finals of Captains Draft 4 with an average KDA of 2/9/7.
In Game 1, JerAx played Shadow Shaman with great initial effect. He was able to win the safe lane tri-lane with Resolut1on and Fly, but his hero quickly fell off as Vici Gaming came out of the laning stage swinging for the fences. In Game 2, JerAx played a roaming Sand King to his team's detriment. Dying 10 times before the games end.
Shows off his flexible hero pool
January 6, 2018
JerAx played a great series in a 2-0 win against Empire at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 7/7/32.
JerAx played an excellent Elder Titan in Game 1. In addition to providing a lot of good control for his team, JerAx dealt some absolutely massive burst damage in fights with Earth Splitter. He was responsible for securing a lot of important kills on Empire's core heroes. JerAx finished with a 7/3/17 KDA. JerAx played equally well in Game 2, although this time on less of a flashy hero, Dazzle. He was consistently in position to save his teammates with Shallow Grave, extending fights and letting OG take the advantage. He finished with a 0/4/15 KDA.
Solid vision game and rotations from OG support
January 4, 2018
JerAx was always in the right place at the right time as OG dominated compLexity in Captain's Draft 4.0. He finished with a KDA of 2/3/15.
JerAx played Treant Protector in their only game of the series. Despite being a slower-paced hero than he normally plays, JerAx still showed a lot of quality on the hero. His rotations were perfect and he never missed Living Armor to help his teammates in a pinch. He even got a Meteor Hammer, which he effectively used with his Overgrowths and his team's other spells.
Helps OG edge out compLexity
December 18, 2017
JerAx finished OG's 2-1 victory over compLexity during the Wild Card Finals at The Summit 8 with an average KDA of 2/4/13.
JerAx played Earth Spirit in Game 1, assisting Resolut1on's Anti-Mage in an offlane tri-lane with Fly's Shadow Demon. JerAx helped secure the lane for his carry leading to a perfect game for Resolut1on. JerAx finished Game 1 with a final KDA of 3/3/12. Game 2 saw JerAx struggle on Tusk, after winning his dual lane with s4's Puck. OG was unable to enforce their presence on the map despite a bevy of mobile heroes. JerAx finished Game 2 with a final KDA of 1/7/7. JerAx returned to Earth Spirit in Game 3, where he helped win Resolut1on's lane once again, earning OG the series and finishing with a 2/2/21 KDA.
Advances further in the wild card bracket at the Summit 8
December 16, 2017
JerAx played a great series in a 2-0 win over Evil Geniuses at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 12/10/25.
JerAx started the series on Tusk, one of his most played heroes. He was extremely effective with all his spells against EG, providing disables, saves and some decent burst damage. He finished with a 10/6/15 KDA. In Game 2 JerAx played Nyx Assassin. He was an integral part of the OG game plan, providing critical vision for his team. JerAx's scouting helped set up for lots of kills and fights that all ended up in OG's favor. He finished with a 2/4/10 KDA.
Impresses anew
December 8, 2017
Jerax played another solid game for OG as they win against TNC in MDL Macau. The popular support finished with a KDA of 4/10/18
Jerax once again played Tusk in OG's win against TNC. He dedicated a lot of the early game helping Resolut1on's Shadow Fiend. It payed off tremendously for OG as Kuku never really recovered from the poor start. His rotations from mid to late were also efficient, and his Ice Shards were always making it hard for TNC. His Sigil micro was also on point, as the extra vision gave OG map control.
Big snowball saves the day
December 8, 2017
Jerax was ever important in OG's victory over LFY in MDL Macau. The flashy support finished with a KDA of 2/6/17.
Jerax went with Tusk in the only game of the matchup. His early-game rotations were important for Resolution to eventually take over. He gave Super a terrible time in the laning stage with his rotations. He kept up the pressure throughout the game. In LFY's all-in play in the late game, he saved Resolution from certain death with a clutch Snowball.
A few nice plays not enough to secure a win
November 4, 2017
JerAx finished with a 4/6/13 KDA in OG's loss to Newbee in the loser's bracket at the DotaPit Minor. OG are now eliminated.
JerAx played Rubick. He played well in the early game and did save a few fights with Spell Steal, but it was ultimately not enough to save OG. In late-game fights, JerAx often died instantly thanks to how far behind he was.
Outplayed by Yapzor
September 27, 2017
Jerax couldn't set the tempo for OG as they were swept by Team Secret in the Starladder EU Qualifiers. The flashy support player finished with a KDA of 3/9/17.
Jerax did not hold anything back in the opener as he started the series with his signature Earth Spirit. His impact was far from what you'd expect from the touted best ES player in the world. He only got two kill and his rotations early on were well read by his opponents. In Game 2, he went with the defensive Keeper of the Light to hold the game for their Alchemist. Unfortunately it highly contradicted his playmaking mentality as he never even set aside the time to farm himself the ever-important Aghanim's Scepter despite having his team ahead early on.
