don't think NBK and apEX are consistent enough, body is a consistent support and shox and kennyS are the stars. Nowadays to compete you need three consistent star players at least (SK has fer cold and felps, Astralis as device, dupreeh and kjaerbye, etc).
compared to Astralis, SK or any other top 5 team G2 aren't any better in terms of individual skill. in fact, they're probably worse than most of them (Astralis, SK, FaZe). when you also consider they have no IGL, you can't really justify them becoming a long-term consistent team that well.
agree, dont think they break into top 5 with this lineup because honestly most teams match them or beat them in skill when you look at the top 10. plus like you said with no real IGL, they have no strats to fall back on when they get outskilled or matched in skill. this team is just an upgraded G2 from 2016 and the only way that they will win is like when that old team won, get good match ups on favored maps and the opponents need to have off day
well, they definitely don't need to have that much of an advantage. they can beat top 5 teams no problem, their wealth of experience and skills allow them to do that, but they just won't be a consistent top tier tournament winning team. they might even win tier 1 tournaments, but like old G2, they can peak in individual skill and just destroy everything, but we know eventually they will fall back down. imo there is no current French superteam without Ex6 & ScreaM (or any IGL that isn't shox/NBK).
well there's different ways of looking at his results in 2016 under his calling. one is: his calling was exceptional but limited by his team or limited by his team. when G2 was at their peak in EPL/ECS, it coincided with the revitalisation of ScreaM and RpK's careers which led to them over-performing because of their newfound confidence. when that died off, they went into slump mode for the rest of the year, going out in groups and finishing in the 8th or 10th place. from that period onwards we can see his medicore, flustered and depressed IGL'ing.
basically, cuz he had some success somewhere in 2016 compared to his other buddies when they were playing like trash, doesn't mean hes a good IGL.
So because he couldn't get results with underperforming players he's a bad IGL? I'm sure you consider Ex6TenZ a good IGL but he never had any notable results in CSGO even though he basically had every french star under his leadership. If shox could get so much out of that old G2 line-up who honestly shouldn't have had any chance to get to 3 big finals it means he knows what he's doing.
I know but shox/kennyS is enough star power in one team. Especially since apEX also has the ability to take over games. Yes apEX is inconsistent, but shox and kenny are pretty stable and the chances of all those 3 having a bad game is RARE.
I think they need him only while apEX is being as inconsistent as he has been lately. I mean, apEX has always been a very on and off player, but his recent performances are more jumpy than ever. Having ScreaM instead of bodyy as a 2nd entry offers more firepower and ensures that apEX is atleast properly traded.
Then just throw bodyy into NBK's role and remove NBK. He was once the player that was 100% needed in a French superteam, but that statement itself grew his ego to a point where he's just ruining every team he joins. He doesn't even have the skill he used to have to back himself up either.
Then again, G2 seem to be finding a bit of online success lately. Should wait till after their first LAN to begin judging just how poorly they're playing.
Depends. If shox really is serious about creating a more strategic play style, they don't need him. But if they will decide to go back to the old style that heavily relies on individual skill, -NBK +ScreaM would probably make them the most skilled team ever on paper.
I'm gonna say what I've been saying since 2015. There is no french SUPERTEAM without Ex6TenZ and there WILL NOT EVER BE unless they finally pick him up again.
I'd say -body +Ex6TenZ and EVENTUALLY -apeX +ScreaM (up to Ex6TenZ plans).
Untill then - we can see french teams in tier 2 OR in 10-20th place.
Basicly - Sweden and France got a big damn problem right now bois.
The only guy who may be swapped out is bodyy, but he's played very solid CS since the team was formed. To be honest, Scream is like Kjaerbye. A great fragger but doesn't seem to fit a role. Unless bodyy turns into a Xyp9X-level support, the current team should be given some more time.
Scream fangays want him on G2? What do you what G2 to be? The second coming of the early FaZe lineup that sucked balls? Lmao people underrate roles so much. Scream's a star player but G2 already has enough star power. Scream's with Envy now, live with it.
Things are good the way they are. There's just a lot of Scream fans that want him to be on G2 because nV suck at the moment. Everyone would be saying nV is the real SUPERTEAM if they performed and winning maps but they aren't.
