gh was excellent in both games of Liquid's 2-0 win over Faceless at the second StarLadder Invitational. He finished with an overall KDA of 0/7/15.

In Game 1 gh played Dazzle. Apart from a missed Shallow Grave near the end of the game, gh played a great match. He was where his team needed him to be, and he did a nice job staying alive himself. gh finished with a 0/2/6 KDA. gh played Keeper of the Light in Game 2. You don't get to be the number one Keeper of the Light on Dotabuff without some serious skills, and gh put those on display in this game. He managed to find the farm for a 20-minute Aghanim's Scepter, which gave Liquid the vision they needed to go for their aggressive push to end the game. gh finished with a 0/5/9 KDA.

gh could not get things done for Team Liquid as they were eliminated by Invictus Gaming in the Kiev Major. The Lebanese support finished with a KDA of 5/25/35.

gh rolled into the first game on his Tusk. He didn't hesitate in applying the pressure early game for his team. However, his lack of self-control with his Snowballs resulted in 11 deaths. His Earthshaker in the second game was on similar terms. His late 21-minute Blink Dagger hampered his impact and his 14 deaths were unfortunate. He was again on Earthshaker in the final game. He had an earlier Blink Dagger and his Fissures ended up being more impactful but it wasn't enough as his team was eliminated. Overall, gh had some positives, but they were greatly outweighed by his mistakes in the series.

gh shifted over to the mid lane in Team Liquid's stomp over Team NP in DAC 2017. The versatile pro finished with a KDA of 4/3/17.

gh was on Naga Siren for their crucial tiebreaker match. He had a successful early game as he punished Aui_2000's aggressive dive very early on. The advantage allowed him to farm an impressive 15-minute Radiance. That was when he started taking over the map with his incredible micro skills. It looked very easy for the young Lebanese player as he gave Team NP more than they could handle.

gh finished Team Liquid's 1-1 draw with Evil Geniuses during the group stage matches at DAC 2017 with a final KDA 5/9/21.

In Game 1, gh was almost a non-factor as Crystal Maiden. He sacrificed himself for MATUMBAMAN many times in lane which later proved to be a fruitless endeavor as Evil Geniuses secured the victory. In Game 2, gh lived up to his self-given nickname of "gh-God" on Naga Siren. Playing for the victory, gh shamelessly played the rat time and time again, chipping away at EG's towers and retreating at the first sign of aggression. In the end, his strategy and discipline paid off as he slowly but surely ensured Team Liquid the victory and series draw.

gh continues to prove that he is a support god as Liquid dismantled TNC in Starladder Season 3. The rising star finished with a KDA of 7/6/30.

gh started the series with Io. His contribution to the game was absolutely insane on the high-skill hero. He got a six-minute Urn of Shadows which helped his team kept healthy throughout the game. His Relocate usage was also a thing of beauty to watch. TNC respected it so much they picked Io for themselves the next game to prevent gh from getting it. So in Game 2, gh went with Rubick. His early game rotations were crisp and he was instrumental in helping Miracle get the good start that he needed. His team fight presence was also impressive as he was involved in 14 of Liquid's kills and pounced on every opportunity.

gh played very well across all four games of Team Liquid's 3-1 win over Vici J in the grand finals of Starladder iLeague. He finished with an overall KDA of 4/28/59.

In Game 1 gh played Keeper of the Light. His presence in the game was a huge part of the reason Liquid was able to hold on for 54 minutes. gh made it incredibly difficult for Vici J to enter Liquid's base, and the mobility from Recall let them split push at all times. Despite losing in Game 1, this was a good example of why Liquid values this hero so highly. gh finished with a 0/8/15 KDA. gh played Warlock in Game 2. He led his team in deaths, but they weren't much of a big deal. His deaths absorbed dangerous rotations that were intended for Liquid's cores. Once they grouped up, Liquid brought the game to a swift end. gh only had to use his Chaotic Offering twice. He finished with a 1/4/8 KDA. gh played Io in Game 3. This was a prime example of why this hero is so hotly contested when a team has someone who plays it. The mobility and healing that gh gave Liquid was insane, and Relocate was probably the most impactful spell in the game. Even behind by 16 kills, Liquid still managed to pull out a win. gh finished with a 3/9/8 KDA. gh played Io again in Game 4. He started out middle with Miracle's Anti-Mage and together they made Freeze's Storm Spirit almost useless. After securing Miracle's lane it was a slow and steady path to victory for Liquid. Although it was very inventive, their choice to put Io and Anti-Mage middle is sure to ruin public games for a few weeks. gh finished with a 0/5/18 KDA.

gh churned out a good performance for Liquid in their victory over Wings in Starladder Season 3. The Lebanese support finished with a KDA of 3/7/26.

In the series opener, gh went with a roaming Slardar. He was constantly body-checking the cores of Wings and giving them trouble despite not getting the kills early on. His fairly late 19-minute Blink Dagger timing changed his fortunes for the better as he ended up with 15 assists. His Rubick wasn't as annoying for Wings in Game 2, but he still ended up with big plays while making limited mistakes. His two deaths underlined his discipline on when to go for the initiation as a squishy support.

gh finished Team Liquid's 2-1 victory over Vici Gaming J during the Starladder i-League main event with a final KDA of 10/22/52.

In Game 1, gh played a jungling Slardar. After securing a slightly late Blink Dagger, he was able to initiate teamfights effectively. Despite helping his team secure an early advantage, the game went too late for gh to be effective when it counted most. In Game 2, gh was along for the ride as Keeper of the Light, doing his best to stay alive as Liquid walloped VGJ in less than 30 minutes. In Game 3, gh played Rubick. His quick pickup of two key items helped his stolen spells to become an enduring force for Liquid as they steadily marched to a series victory and secured a top finish in Group B.

gh finished Team Liquid's 2-1 victory over B)ears during the Dota2 Asia Championships European Qualifiers with a final KDA of 6/19/42.

gh was tied with KuroKy for the most deaths on the team by series end, but that doesn't mean his efforts made no impact. In Game 1, gh supported MinD_ContRoL's Brewmaster in the off lane as Keeper of the Light. Repeatedly laying his life down for those of his teammates didn't work out in Liquid's favor. Getting behind early kept Liquid from gaining the early momentum they needed to win the game with haste. In Game 2, gh played Slardar in the safe lane with Miracle's Meepo. His imposing presence helped keep Miracle alive, along with the hopes of his team. Keeping Miracle protected enabled Liquid to outlast B)ears and turn the tides at the last minute to force a Game 3. In Game 3, gh played Keeper of the Light in a dual off lane once again. Learning from his previous errors, gh and MinD_ContRoL held their own in lane. Choosing not to force the issue with B)ears' safe lineup, gh was able to keep out of trouble and farm away to prepare for Liquid's inevitable siege. Liquid was ultimately able to break through and take the game, putting them one series away from a trip to Shanghai.

gh held his own as a fill in when Team Liquid defeated Alliance 2-0 in the upper bracket final of DreamLeague Season 6 and advanced the the grand finals. gh finished with a 4/14/28 KDA in the series.

gh played like a stand-in as he struggled in Game 1, dying a game-high 9 times. He was bailed out by his teammates in the span of a single teamfight that wiped out Alliance and led to Liquid running away with the game. Game 2 was a better showing for gh, as he played Io to a game-high 22 assists. It wasn't always pretty, but Liquid is moving on to the grand finals.

gh looked very impressive as a stand-in in Team Liquid's 2-0 win over The Imperial in the Dreamhack Dreamleague season 6 playoffs. He finished with a 9/5/24 KDA.

In his first official LAN appearance with Team Liquid, gh played Oracle support in the Radiant safe lane. He gave up a few deaths early, but most of these were sacrifices so that MATUMBAMAN or Miracle could live. After his rough lane phase, gh played an excellent game. He was always positioned well, able to quickly save whichever teammate was being focused by The Imperial. He finished with a 4/3/8 KDA. In Game 2 gh played support Mirana. He played a sick early game. Almost every time Liquid needed another hero in a fight, gh was there hitting a Sacred Arrow to secure a kill. Even the elusive Storm Spirit wasn't safe from gh's arrows. He finished up a 19-minute Aghanim's Scepter, and after that the game was essentially over. gh finished with a 5/2/16 KDA.
