This Liquid mid laner truly deserves to be in the number one spot. Aside from the first DotA player who reached 9k MMR, most of his plays were already crafted on our mind.

His Shadow Fiend’s next level juke with dagger and manta plus an additional kill with Alliance courier. Wondrous triple kill Invoker play against TNC, unstoppable Timbersaw against Na’vi, and a WR’s powershot that took Mikasa’s QOP life.
