"No one in our team have ever been in this situation in our whole carreers and its really hard to point fingers or explain how the feelings are so for everyones sake we simply had to put the mental state and the well being of all the players in focus here and simply go all in for the major, its our last shot, we dont know how to move on."
and thats why i asked what he meant by what he said. I agree that NA players get paid way too much money to be mediocre, and it shows that they really dont try that much and are more invested in streaming than winning tournaments.
Most NA players seem to have that "work 9-5" mentality. They don't care about results, just want to get the paycheck so they can justify to their parents the sitting behind computer 14 hours a day situation. Too bad their "work" performance is literally on display here and such behavior can work for a few years I guess but once the scene gets more competitive its over for guys with mentality like that
NACS isn't even bad anymore in comparison. Cloud9 are decent and definitely have star power and OpTic are in great form as of recently. but I guess we'll see at the major. I think they earn a fair amount of money for the time they put in.
maybe a swap could happen, even if they are playing together for 4 year with almost the same line up, they know they are in a very bad spot and even tho they are close friends they mid break the line up
f0rest and gtr left fnatic when we thought they wouldn't ever
He is definitely not doing his job well.He has like two good matches in his whole career in NiP. He plays good in one important match and people overrate him.He is just as bad as friberg and xizt if not even worse.
Way better than "friberg"
Shows right there that you havent been watching any of their matches. Friberg is better rifler,pistol player and has definitley higher potential than pyth.Just look at the way pyth positions himself with awp and the way he peeks with awp shows how much better other primary awpers are than him.
He is not their igl,not their entry fragger still he struggles a lot.Friberg is their utility player in both t-side and ct-side.Nothing is holding pyth's back to become a star player.His skill level is just low ,that is it.Their retakes are so pathetic that they always almost lose those rounds whenever he has awp.Believe it or not pyth is not any better than friberg and xizt and far worse than f0rest and get_right.
I don't get it why you people put all the blame on Xizt and friberg
They all take turns in weighing the team down, its rare that they get a complete team effort. I guess f0rest slacks the least of them all but GTR sure as hell has some horrible performances
Im not blaming them entirely. f0rest and gtr have had many bad games aswell. My only problem is that f0rest and gtr can carry them to wins even if other players have bad games but xizt,pyth and friberg cant make any impact without f0rest and gtr.
Look at other top teams excpet vp, they have atleast 3 starplayers who can carry them.so it doesnt affect them if one of their star players have bad games.
Anyway vp has better individual players than nip,i mean we can compare forest and GTR with snax and byali but pasha,neo and taz are better than friberg,xizt,pyth.
There is nothing as betrayal in CS, everyone is in search of the best for himself and ye cuz its better staying with you friends in a tier2 team knowing you are one of the best players in the world and wont achieve shit
NiP has been a fucking disgrace since 2015 come on...they have past a lot of humilliating moments with that line up. You search glory and money and if for that you have to leave your best friends you do it. Look when olofmeister joined fnatic, he left his best friend dennis, that is how things work, everybody lives his own life
It could happen. I mean f0rest and gtr did leave old fnatic(carn,gux and dsn) with whom they played for many years. Nip will fail horribly once again even if they win some events in the middle. Their lows have never been this low,even though they were inconsistent with maikelele they still had great potential than with pyth.
Anyway they wont require jw,he is too inconsistent and olof is good enough to be primary awper. They still need xizt and he is the only good fragging igl besides fallen.
I dont think they will kick friberg anyway. If they didnt consider kicking him after his 2015 performance they wont kick him after 2016. Its actually sad sometimes how they could have been even more successfull if they had considered kicking fifflaren for olof or friberg for dennis.But they only have themselves to blame.
bullshit thing to do. they shoulda gone there instead of doing this crap.
mimimi u lost an online bo3 to some scrubs, which wasnt even to qualify for vegas but to get to the final round of qualification. get over it, rekt at WESG which should be easy enough, shut the fuck up, go out in groups at the major or somehow luck out and play well again for once like in the qualifier, and then get fuckin flusha in a decent team and pronax and schneider outta the pro scene.
All this shit just for -JW
Also i think that the fnatic superteam could easily continue with that line up if they let jw awping like he likes to do
Jw from first awper became 4th awper of the team and he always played with shotgun
