Evil Geniuses
Eliminated right away after a 3-0 group stage
March 9, 2018
Fear played a very solid series overall, coming up just short of victory against Liquid in a 1-2 loss. He finished with an overall KDA of 15/9/13.
Fear played Pugna in Game 1. He contributed a lot to early kills with his burst damage, but quickly fell off in terms of effectiveness in fights. Fear tried to resort to split pushing lanes, but up against an Anti-Mage on Liquid there was no way Fear was going to win that battle. He finished with a 4/6/2 KDA. Fear played Viper in Game 2. Although not the flashiest hero, Fear played it extremely well in this dominant victory. His positioning was great, and he was able to put out reliable damage in fights. Fear finished with a 4/0/9 KDA. In Game 3 Fear played Broodmother. He looked dominant in fights, but unfortunately for EG he was the only one who could play so aggressive. The rest of his team was busy being killed while Fear was killing supports, leaving him in desperate positions over and over again. He finished the game with a 7/3/2 KDA.
Not at his best
March 8, 2018
Fear fought hard as Evil Geniuses defeated Team Liquid 1-0 in the group stage of The Bucharest Major. Fear finished with a 9/10/20 KDA.
This game looked like a clear win for Liquid. After the constant fighting in the early game started to settle, Liquid was clearly in the lead. That lead only continued to grow, reaching almost a 20,000 net-worth advantage for the TI7 champs. However, Fear reminded everybody that he and EG won a TI themselves as they mounted a major comeback. Each win for EG is huge as they settle into their new roster, but this win may just be one of the biggest yet.
Was not able to carry anything
February 24, 2018
Fear was neutralized as Evil Geniuses lost to Virtus.pro 2-1 in the quarterfinals of ESL One Katowice, finishing with a 9/13/13 KDA.
Transitioning back to his carry role, Fear is still one of the best players in the game. However, you would not have been able to tell that from this series. Fear was knocked around just as much as any of the EG members, being totally neutralized by the surging VP team. There was not a single game where Fear had more kills than deaths as VP asserted their dominance in convincing fashion in both of their two wins.
Provides the extra firepower for Evil Geniuses
February 23, 2018
Fear played a quiet, but efficient game in Evil Geniuses domination of Newbee in ESL One Genting. The veteran finished with a KDA of 9/3/12.
Fear opened up the series with Dragon Knight in the safe lane. He actually managed to play sccc's Ursa Warrior a couple of times early on, which stunted his growth incredibly. He went back to the mid lane with his Razor. He outclassed sccc once again in the laning phase, and Newbee could not recover.
Rough loss sends Evil Geniuses to the elimination bracket
February 20, 2018
Fear struggled in a one-sided loss to LGD at ESL One Katowice. He finished with a 3/5/3 KDA.
He struggled in lane on Lycan, matched up against Maybe's Dragon Knight. After losing in lane handily, Fear's transition to the mid-game was seriously hampered. He did his best to recover by taking objectives, but LGD's lead was too strong.
Constantly outmatched by Liquid
January 27, 2018
Fear finished with an overall KDA of 3/11/2 in a very one-sided 2-0 loss to Liquid at ESL One Genting.
Fear played a terrible Terrorblade in Game 1. He was simply unable to get anything going either in lane or in fights. He was the target of Liquid's burst at the start of fights, meaning he never even got the chance to go for a big Sunder turnaround play. Fear finished with a 0/4/0 KDA. In Game 2 Fear played Razor, once again having a very difficult time against Liquid. His lane didn't go very well, so Fear just didn't have the durability he needed to wade into fights and use Static Link. He died early and often in fights, ending the game with a 3/7/2 KDA.
Solid series from Old Man Fear
January 26, 2018
Fear finished with a 10/7/16 overall KDA in a 2-0 win against Virtus.pro at ESL One Genting.
In Game 1 Fear played Lycan. He played very well all game, even in his very disadvantageous lane matchup. As the game went later, he was very effective at pressuring lanes and capitalizing on the split-pushing done by Arteezy's Tinker. In fights Fear was able to Shapeshift and run down the VP backline, creating a big advantage for EG. He finished with a 9/4/9 KDA. In Game 2 Fear played Lycan again. This was not nearly as explosive a game for Fear, but it didn't matter because this time he had teammates to pick up the slack. Just like Fear created space and made plays in Game 1, it fell to the rest of EG to help Fear recover. He finished with a 1/3/7 KDA.
Rough Terrorblade game doesn't derail Evil Geniuses
January 25, 2018
Fear had a good series but Evil Geniuses still pick up the win over TNC in ESL One Genting. The veteran finished with a KDA of 15/8/20.
Fear started the series with Viper in the mid lane. His early game went excellently for him with the help of his supports. He quickly farmed a Force Staff, which allowed him to out-position Kuku's Shadow Fiend in many moments of the game. His 13 kills were the highest of the game, which was easily Fear's better game of the series. In Game 2, he played Terrorblade in the offlane. He didn't get to farm a lot, but he was still making good plays for Evil Geniuses despite his unfortunate five deaths.
Best player on the losing team
January 23, 2018
Fear played Death Prophet in a loss to Na'Vi at ESL One Genting. He finished with a 5/4/3 KDA.
Despite finishing with the fewest deaths on his team, Fear was still not very effective in fights. There was plenty of burst on the Na'Vi side, and Fear simply couldn't stand up to it even with Spirit Siphons active. He couldn't provide enough damage on his own, and EG got run over in 30 minutes.
Shines bright in Game 2 but can't close out the series
January 5, 2018
Fear dominated Game 2 but was otherwise absent in a 1-2 loss to Team Secret at Captain's Draft 4. He finished with an overall KDA of 9/14/29.
Fear started out the series on Underlord, a slightly unconventional pick for the safe lane. All things considered, this was not the greatest game from Fear. At one point he was Force Staffed away from his team while trying to cast Dark Rift, which allowed Secret to completely turn the game around with a huge fight win. Fear finished with a 0/6/9 KDA. Fear played Death Prophet in Game 2, improving massively from his Game 1 performance. His positioning was impeccable in this game, and his spell usage was equally good. In particular, his use of Silence really blew the game open for EG by completely shutting down Secret's initiation on multiple occasions. He finished with a 5/1/13 KDA. In Game 3 Fear played Gyrocopter. Apart from cleaning up a couple of huge fights, this was a pretty underwhelming game from Fear. He wasn't able to keep up in farm with the other carries in the game, and quickly fell behind. With no big damage items, he wasn't able to be a threat in the late game. He finished with a 4/7/7 KDA.
Getting used to carrying again
January 4, 2018
Fear came out slow as Evil Geniuses lost to CompLexity Gaming in the Group Stages of Captain's Draft 4. Fear finished with a 6/5/2 KDA.
Back to carrying EG, Fear will make adjustments to get back to his old self. Fear was able to show some signs of comfort in this game. However, the positives came in a limited fashion as EG proceeded to throw away their lead to compLexity and went on to lose. This was the first game for the new-look EG, and they will look to learn a lot through this event.
Shows off his chops in the carry position
January 4, 2018
Fear finished with an impressive 8/1/7 KDA in a win against Pain Gaming at Captain's Draft 4.
Fear played an excellent Morphling, showing just how strong the hero is even after the recent change that removed Morphling's ability to shift attributes while stunned. Fear was extremely mobile and annoying in fights, especially once he got his Ethereal Blade and could burst down supports instantly.
Moving to Mid
December 20, 2017
In a small footnote in Evil Geniuses' press release concerning their recent roster changes, it was announced that Fear will be changing roles to solo mid.
Fear has bounced between roles for Evil Geniuses every since being sidelined by injury in 2014. His prowess at the off-support role during the 2015 International run was impressive, but middle lane will present new challenges for the grizzled veteran. Fear will truly seek to dispel rumors that age slows down a player or relegates them to a low-impact role.
An early exit from the Summit 8
December 16, 2017
Fear looked shaken in a 0-2 loss to OG at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 5/13/15.
Fear had a rough Game 1 on Disruptor. He was often quickly focused down at the start of fights and rarely was able to get off a good ultimate on OG. He finished with a 4/9/7 KDA. He had a similarly difficult time in Game 2, this time playing Shadow Demon. Fear died frequently and offered very little in the way of damage or utility against OG. He finished with a 1/4/8 KDA, another quick loss.
Shallow hero pool exploited in Game 3
December 14, 2017
Fear played decently in a 2-1 series vs complexity at the Summit 8. He finished with an overall KDA of 3/18/38
In Game 1 Fear played Winter Wyvern. He played a solid game, captaining his team while using his spells effectively. He finished with a 1/5/13 KDA. Fear Game 2 Wyvern again with similar results. He finished with a 2/2/13 KDA In Game 3 Fear played Spirit Breaker. With Bane, Ogre Magi and Winter Wyvern all unavailable, Fear was forced onto a hero he looked very uncomfortable on. He never got much momentum in the early game, and his charges were often ill fated. He finished with a 0/11/12 KDA.
