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.
Blitzes through series sweep
August 4, 2017
JerAx helped to push his team to victory as OG completed to 2-0 sweep over Hellraisers in group stages of The International 7. JerAx finished the series with a 2/4/26 KDA.
It was not even until Game 2 that JerAx finally died after he racked up 15 assists in a perfect Game 1. Before you knew it, Game 2 was over in just over 20 minutes and HerAx racked up another 11 assists. JerAx looked extra impressive on Nyx Assassin as OG shined overall.
Swings the middle lane for Ana
August 3, 2017
JerAx finished OG's 2-0 victory over Cloud9 during the group stages of The International 7 with a final KDA of 4/13/33.
JerAx played Nyx Assassin and Tusk in Games 1 and 2 of the series. Helping Ana to win the middle lane early on opened up many more opportunities for JerAx, who posted the highest assist numbers in each individual game.
Rare quiet game from spitfire support
July 7, 2017
JerAx could not swing the games in OG's favor as they fell to LGD in MDL 2017. The popular support player finished with a KDA of 5/16/29.
In Game 1, JerAx was on Tusk. He spent majority of his early game harassing for Ana. It backfired for OG often, as JerAx ended up giving his life to LGD nine times in the game. While he had some good Snowball saves in the game, it was definitely not a game that JerAx would want to remember. Despite his struggles in Game 1, JerAx again tried his luck on Tusk in Game 2. He didn't die as often in the early game and even picked up kills for himself.
OG's star support shows off his diverse hero pool
July 6, 2017
JerAx finished with a 3/5/11 KDA in OG's win against LFY in the MDL 2017 group stages.
JerAx played Visage. He did a nice job controlling LFY with his summoned Familiars, and was able to contribute a lot of burst from Soul Assumption. Combined with the rest of OG, his disables were very strong and enabled his team to deal a huge amount of damage.
Talent mitigated by the draft
July 5, 2017
JerAx finished OG's 1-0 loss to Evil Geniuses during the group stages of MDL 2017 with a final KDA of 0/8/8
Usually known for his dramatic and game-winning plays, JerAx was playing noticeably silent as Winter Wyvern. Rendered impotent by a hero whose skills were opposite his playstyle, JerAx was powerless to stop OG's swift demise.
Uneventful game for OG's support
July 5, 2017
JerAx finished with a 2/5/8 KDA in a loss to LGD in the MDL 2017 group stages.
JerAx played Night Stalker. Despite being on one of the most hotly contested heroes, JerAx was unable to get much done. He could do very little against LGD's heroes, who were either too mobile or durable for him to help bring down.
