Couldn't keep up with the pace of the game
July 7, 2016
UnderShock was ineffective when playing from behind as Power Rangers lost 2-1 to Escape Gaming in Round 1 of the lower bracket in the Global Grand Master playoffs. UnderShock finished with a 17/15/22 KDA and destroyed three towers, three barracks and two Roshans in the series.
ANALYSIS
UnderShock played a beautiful Game 1 on Juggernaut that set the tone for the series, or so we thought. He finished with an 11/4/7 KDA as well as destroying three towers, three barracks and two Roshans to push his team to a demanding victory. The tone for the series, however, was switched drastically as Power Rangers seemed to fall apart in Game 2. Escape started playing at a much higher level than they did in Game 1 and Power Rangers seemed to continually take steps back. Escape won two straight to take the series and Power Rangers have improvements to make.
Illidan: Fantastic Five is eliminated from The International 6 despite strong carry play
June 27, 2016
Illidan started out strong, but fizzled out in Fantastic Five's 1-2 loss to Escape Gaming in The International 6 European regional qualifiers. He finished the series with an overall KDA of 12/7/25. Fantastic Five is eliminated from The International 6.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Illidan played Chaos Knight starting in the Radiant top off lane. He had a great start to his game, getting first blood on Era's Slark and forcing Era to rotate to the bottom lane. From there, he made it his job to stalk Era in the early game. When Era teleported bottom, Illidan followed and continued to apply pressure. After his good start, Illidan was impossible to stop. With Io to relocate him into fights, as well as provide a huge attack and move speed boost, Illidan's damage was out of control. His Phantasm illusions were powerful enough to secure kills on their own by the end of the game. Illidan finished Game 1 with a perfect 3/0/13 KDA. Fantastic Five won Game 1. In Game 2, Illidan played Medusa in the Radiant bottom safe lane. He had a rough early lane against the aggressive triple lane from Escape Gaming. He gave up an early death, and had a very difficult time farming in his lane. Throughout the game, Illidan was constantly behind in terms of gold and experience to Escape Gaming's core heroes. As the game stretched later and later, he began to slowly catch up. He decided to go for an extremely risky 33-minute Divine Rapier. The massive bonus damage on Split Shot was enough to bring Fantastic Five back into the game. From there, the game dragged on for another 30 minutes. Even with a Divine Rapier, Illidan didn't have the damage to bring down all of Escape's heroes when they were prepared for his damage. In the late game, Illidan was a turret for his team. He constantly was pouring out damage, and was often the last member of his team alive at the end of fights. He finished the game with an 8/4/7 KDA. Fantastic Five lost Game 2. In Game 3, Illidan played Medusa in the Radiant middle lane. He had a nice early game against qojqva's Invoker. They were unable to really contest each other's early gold and experience, so both players got off to a nice start. Illidan actually managed to have a nice mid game. Although his damage outside of Mystic Snake wasn't very high, he was extremely durable in fights. Additionally, his Stone Gaze gave his team nice control over Escape Gaming's very mobile heroes. Unfortunately, he lacked the attack damage that he needed to scale into the late game. Accordingly, Fantastic Five found themselves extremely lacking in damage, letting Escape Gaming take easy fights even in Fantastic Five's base. Illidan finished the game with a 1/3/5 KDA. Fantastic Five lost Game 3.
UnderShock: Splits series vs Flipsid3 Tactics in Global Grand Masters qualifier
June 22, 2016
UnderShock played a split series in Team Spirit's 1-1 match against Flipsid3 Tactics in the Global Grand Masters closed qualifier. He finished the series with an 18/16/24 KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, UnderShock played Sniper in the Dire middle lane. He had a very rough early game, giving up five deaths in the first 10 minutes. With only a Ring of Aquila to his name, UnderShock set about the difficult task of recovering his gold and experience. It took almost 30 minutes, but UnderShock was eventually able to stick it out with his teammates to the late game. With the lockdown from Ghostik's Chronosphere, UnderShock was able to safely dish out massive damage. He dealt 26,500 to Flipsid3's heroes, finishing Game 1 with a 16/9/23 KDA. Team Spirit won Game 1. In Game 2, UnderShock played Puck in the Radiant middle lane. He had a bad game, dying twice in the early game and not finishing a Blink Dagger for 16 minutes. With such a bad start, UnderShock was never able to contribute the damage or control his team needed from him. It became easy for Flipsid3 to either Silence or stun him, and burst him down. UnderShock was constantly behind, and Puck doesn't play very well from a deficit. He finished Game 2 with a poor 2/7/1 KDA. Team Spirit lost Game 2.
XBOCT: Splits series vs Flipsid3 Tactics in Global Grand Masters qualifier
June 22, 2016
XBOCT played a hot and cold series in Team Spirit's 1-1 series against Flipsid3 Tactics in the Global Grand Masters closed qualifier. He finished the series with a 16/15/32 KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, XBOCT played Troll Warlord in the Dire top safe lane. Despite an early death, he managed to get off to a good start in his lane. In fights, his Battle Trance was extremely effective. It gave a massive damage boost to not only himself, but also Sniper and Faceless Void. Things was very close throughout the mid game, with both teams trading relatively evenly in fights. In the late game, Team Spirit's superior lockdown won out. Thanks to Chronosphere, as well as the insane bash capability of Team Spirit with Battle Trance, they were able to bring down even tmw's Ember Spirit. XBOCT finished Game 1 with a 14/9/23 KDA. Team Spirit won Game 1. In Game 2, XBOCT played Chaos Knight in the Radiant top off lane. He was assisted by Funn1k's Io, with Goblak's Chen in the Dire jungle. Their attempts to pressure Sedoy didn't go very well, but XBOCT was still able to secure nice gold and experience for himself. Going into the mid game, Team Spirit tried to apply global pressure with Nature's Prophet and Chaos Knight plus Io. Their attempts were met largely with failure, and Flipsid3's powerful team fight lineup won out in the end. XBOCT died in almost every engagement, and finished Game 2 with a 2/6/9 KDA. Team Spirit lost Game 2.
Ghostik: Team Spirit splits their series in the Global Grand Masters qualifier
June 22, 2016
Ghostik played a good Game 1, but a poor Game 2 in Team Spirit's 1-1 series against Flipsid3 Tactics in the Global Grand Masters closed qualifier. He finished the series with a 7/10/29 KDA.
ANALYSIS
In Game 1, Ghostik played Faceless Void in the Dire bottom off lane. After giving up first blood, Ghostik played an excellent game. He was able to get the experience he needed from his lane, giving his team access to Chronosphere as soon as possible. In fights, he was not only useful for his ultimate, but also his auto attacks. With attack speed from Troll Warlord's Battle Trance, his Time Lock was able to bash more often, dealing a lot of bonus damage. After his early death, Ghostik only died four times in a high-action game. His Time Walk kept him safe from most damage except for Batrider initiation or an Ember Spirit critical strike. Ghostik finished Game 1 with a 5/5/25 KDA. Team Spirit won Game 1. In Game 2, Ghostik played Nature's Prophet in the Radiant bottom safe lane. He had a decent early lane, although his rotations did result in his death. Going into the mid game, Ghostik and Team Spirit failed to capitalize on the global aspect of their lineup. When Flipsid3 were just sticking together as a team, Ghostik and his teammates were helpless against the Chronosphere, Supernova and Exorcism combination. Ghostik finished Game 2 with a 2/5/4 KDA. Team Spirit lost Game 2.
