Falls flat after a great Game 1
June 10, 2018
Maybe started out extremely hot but fell off hard in a 2-1 loss to Virtus.pro at the China Supermajor. He finished with a 32/19/19 overall KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Maybe dominated on Shadow Fiend. After getting early souls from fy's Clockwerk Power Cogs Maybe snowballed into completely taking over the game. He could kill any hero with his early Shadow Blade, forcing Virtus.pro to play in fear practically all game. He finished with a 16/1/4 KDA. Maybe played a super aggressive Outworld Devourer in Game 2, diving past tier three towers with a huge lead and giving VP a window back into the game. He finished with a 13/11/11 KDA. In Game 3 Maybe had a miserable time on Invoker. He got dominated practically all game by VP. Maybe wasn't given nearly the space he needed to make his hero work, finishing with a 3/7/4 KDA.
Showed off his superiority against Infamous
June 3, 2018
Maybe completely outclassed P4pita in the midlane at the China Supermajor. The Chinese star finished with a KDA of 24/6/27.
ANALYSIS
Maybe own both laning stages with ease with ease against P4pita. He kicked off the series with Mirana in the midlane. Maybe decided to rush a Black King Bar to terrific effect as he nullified most of Infamous's damage output. He managed to only die once and find the game-high 12 kills. In Game 2, it was pretty much the same story for Maybe as he made short work of the mid lane with his Shadow Fiend. He once again rushed a Black King Bar after a Shadow Blade and Infamous were powerless to do anything against Maybe.
Good all-around performance from LGD mid laner
April 3, 2018
Maybe had a solid series for LGD in their win over Evil Geniuses at the Dota Asia Championships 2018. The mid laner finished with a KDA of 15/10/21.
ANALYSIS
Maybe started off the series with Viper in the midlane. He drew the lane against SumaiL's Enigma and went for Helm of the Dominator first on his list. Maybe was in most of LGD's engagements making sure that Arteezy was slowed to a crawl all the time. Maybe had his spells up on EG for over five minutes. In Game 2, Maybe's Outworld Devourer was more efficient. His defensive Astral Imprisonments on himself and his allies were on point and really gave EG a lot of problems. On the offensive side of things, Maybe was no slouch for LGD as he managed 16,000 hero damage in the game.
Needed more help from his team
March 31, 2018
Maybe was the only real spark for LGD in their loss against Optic in the Dota Asia Championships 2018. The midlaner finished with a KDA of 6/3/3.
ANALYSIS
Maybe was on Lina in the important match. He had a good laning stage which he transitioned into efficient roaming every time his Laguna Blade was off cooldown. His six kills were the highest for his team but he really lacked any real help from his two other core teammates.
Shut down by Secret
February 21, 2018
Maybe finished with a 14/7/9 overall KDA in an underwhelming 0-2 loss to Secret at ESL One Katowice.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Maybe played Shadow Fiend. He had a good lane and early game, but fell off quite hard after a disastrous fight loss. Although he could still put out a lot of burst, he was extremely squishy if disabled and was instantly focused by Secret in fights. He finished with a 2/3/2 KDA. In Game 2 Maybe played Queen of Pain. He had a much better time than in Game 1, getting off to an explosive start and racking up a lot of kills. His mobility didn't do him much good in fights unfortunately, there was too much disable and mana burn on Secret for him to do much. He finished with a 12/4/7 KDA, but most of his kills were ultimately low impact.
Explosive series from LGD's middle lane
February 20, 2018
Maybe dominated Evil Geniuses at ESL One Katowice, finishing with an 11/0/6 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Dragon Knight is not a hero that usually snowballs out of control, but Maybe managed to absolutely run away with this game. He crushed Fear's Lycan in lane, and his quick Shadow Blade allowed him to extend his advantage around the map. In a full-on fight Maybe was both an unstoppable force and immovable object for LGD.
Electrifying Storm Spirit game not enough for LGD mid
February 1, 2018
Maybe gave a very commendable effort against Liquid in Starladder but it wasn't enough. The mid laner finished with a KDA of 22/12/20.
ANALYSIS
Maybe opened up the series with Storm Spirit in the mid lane. He struggled early on against the rotations of Liquid but quickly bounced back. His 12-minute Kaya and 18-minute Bloodstone were still very good timings. He was really making plays for LGD in the best way possible picking up the game-high 17 kills in the losing effort. In Game 2, his Shadow Fiend did not have as much impact. He died often, and his 14-minute Eul's Scepter of Divinity did not amount to much for his team as they were quickly routed by Liquid.
Decent individual performance not enough
December 14, 2017
Maybe finished with an overall KDA of 21/9/16 in three losses to Optic at The Summit 8.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Maybe played Puck. This was a particularly rough game for Maybe. He was forced into a position where his teammates needed him to create space, but Maybe didn't have the gold or levels to really make this happen. He finished with a 5/0/5 KDA. In Game 2 Maybe played Tiny. He was looking hot in the early game, but after LGD failed to get enough of an advantage from this he started to fall off hard. His Ava-Toss combo was no longer enough to get kills, and he was completely helpless against Optic's Medusa. Maybe finished with an 8/4/5 KDA. In Game 3 Maybe played Shadow Fiend, once again showing off his individual skills. In an eerie repeat of Game 2's storyline, Maybe got off to a hot start but was brought to a sudden and hard stop by Optic's teamfighting ability. He finished with an 8/5/6 KDA.
Styled on SumaiL
October 22, 2017
Maybe completely styled on Evil Geniuses in his team's victory at the PGL Minor. The explosive midlaner finished with a KDA of 23/5/18.
ANALYSIS
Maybe completely outdueled Sumail for the majority of the series. His opening game on Ursa dominated the early game. He was picking up kills left and right as he snowballed in perfect fashion. He picked up ten kills and only died once in Game 1. His follow-up game on Mirana was once again highlight-reel worthy. He didn't dominate the early game but he quickly picked up the pace in the mid-game. His Sacred Arrows were hitting at crazy moments and he really set the tempo for his team with 13 kills.
Weak showing from LGD's fiery middle lane
October 22, 2017
Maybe finished with an overall KDA of 8/9/11 in LGD Gaming's 0-2 loss to Mineski in the grand finals of the PGL Bucharest Minor.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Maybe played Ember Spirit. He played pretty well despite being behind practically all game. Although his team was losing, Maybe was still a decent threat to Mineski. Maybe also did a nice job staying alive for most of the game. He had no good answer to Mineski's physical burst damage though, which would prove to be his downfall. He finished with a 4/1/7 KDA. In Game 2 Maybe played Mirana. This was another tough game for LGD. Without the elusiveness of Ember Spirit, Maybe found himself dead a lot more in this game. He didn't get a good start in lane, and once both teams started grouping up Maybe found himself dying quickly to the Mineski cores. He finished with a 4/8/4 KDA.
Outdueled and outclassed
August 12, 2017
Maybe was schooled by Miracle and Team Liquid in the International 2017. The prolific midlaner finished with a KDA of 5/11/6.
ANALYSIS
Rarely do you see Maybe struggle in a series, but Team Liquid were too much for LGD's star player. In the opening game, Maybe's Mirana just couldn't hit the mark. His Sacred Arrows were missing and his damage output was sorely missing in the lopsided lost. In Game 2, he went with the unorthodox safe lane Death Prophet. His level progression was slow because of the lane and he had to buy too many defensive items that he never really became a threat.
Odd picks punished by opponents
August 9, 2017
Maybe was simply outplayed by No[o]ne in LGD Gaming's lost in The International 2017. The young star finished with a KDA of 6/11/7.
ANALYSIS
Two not-so-great picks for the mid laner really hurt Maybe in the series. He went with Necrophos in the opener but was quickly countered by Virtus Pro's Lina pick. He had an okay early game but was forced to go defensive with his items. He got a Veil of Discord and a Hood of Defiance at a decent timing but his positioning was faulty, and he often got punished for it. In Game 2, he went with an even riskier pick in Leshrac. He got a few kills early but was easily singled out by VP as they took him out before he could dish out any damage. Maybe got a decent Bloodstone timing, but its value went down quickly along with their chances of winning.
Dominates as Queen of Pain in Game 1
August 4, 2017
Maybe finished LGD's 1-1 draw with Team Liquid during the group stages of The International 7 with a final KDA of 22/6/11
ANALYSIS
Maybe played Queen of Pain and Ursa in Games 1 and 2 respectively in the series against Team Liquid. In Game 1, Maybe trounced Miracle and anyone else foolish enough that was in his sight. He had finished his Veil of Discord at 8 minutes and finished with a spotless 14/0/9 KDA. Game 2 was a complete reversal of fortune for Maybe, as his Ursa was constantly disabled and frequently kited about teamfights as Liquid split-pushed their way to victory.
Weak series from LGD's star middle lane
August 3, 2017
Maybe finished with an overall KDA of 14/13/14 in LGD's 0-2 loss to iG.Vitality in the group stages of The International 7.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1 Maybe played Death Prophet. Despite LGD being behind for most of the game, there were a few moments when it looked like Maybe might have been able to turn the tides. He was so close to living in fights so many times, but unfortunately couldn't keep himself alive long enough in the end. He finished with a 7/7/5 KDA. In Game 2 Maybe played Legion Commander. This was a pretty underwhelming performance from LGD's typically explosive middle lane. He got some nice Duel wins on the iG.V supports, but he couldn't bring down the two targets that really mattered, Timbersaw and Weaver. He finished with a 7/6/9 KDA.
Destroys everything he sees for second sweep of the day
August 2, 2017
Maybe continued his hot streak as LGD Gaming took a 2-0 sweep over Team Empire in the group stages of The International 7. Maybe finished the series with a 19/3/21 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Already making his case for team MVP, Maybe has been an absolute force. After finishing Game 1 with a perfect KDA on Ember Spirit, Maybe switched over to Leshrac and dominated again. Game 2 saw LGD have to face their first deficit of the tournament, something that should bode well for them in the long run.
