very ez for mouz

Niko best player in this tournament by far

nex and ChrisJ good enough to help him

2016-02-17 19:54:39
Dayum ur retarded
2016-02-17 19:57:23
only fnatic/nv/astralis players close to niko in skill

nt beerwaffle
2016-02-17 19:58:47

All just as good as NiKo, nt tho
2016-02-17 20:42:02
JDM? Really? He is an awper, the comparison is not even fair, also his rifles are shit and Niko is lightyears ahead.

ScreaM? Comeon, it's not 2013, you can't be serious.

K0nfig? Really m8, the guy has had one good tournament.

Kjaerbye, he has been promising for years and only lived up to his potential in the last couple of months while Niko has been impressive through out the whole of 2015 on LAN.

Hiko is good, probably the best NA player but Niko is still ahead.

Shox had a weak probably his weakest year in CSGO and I think that Niko was better last year however Shox has an amazing peak level and I think he is better overall than Niko.

S1mple, it's hard to say, we didn't see him play that much on LAN last year, and overall Niko's performances through 2015 was more impressive, but S1mple has alot to prove in 2016 and has the potential to be one of the best players in world, I would rate him higher then Niko though.
2016-02-17 20:55:37
Uhhm, you wanna tzell me, that Niko has a higher skill level that s1mple has, even by far?
Sorry, but thats deluded, S1mple obviously is more talented than Niko is, which btw doesnt mean hes a better player.
And I definetly wouldnt call Hiko "the best NA player" anymore, JDM and Nitro are both definetly better.

Edit: nevermind, only savior said stuff about the skill

2016-02-20 01:01:37
I never said that about S1mple.

I seriously disagree with JDM being the best NA player. Not even close, he has a great awp but his pistols and rifles are absolute dog shit.

The thing is you can be a great rifler and a bad awper but still be a very good player. It's kinda hard to do it the other way around. Since rifles are essential to the game while the awp isn't, ofc it's essential in a team but for a single player it isn't.

That is why imo I cant say that JDM is the best NA player, but he is atm the best NA awper.

It's different with nitr0 tho, and he is contending to be the best NA player, but I still think Hiko out edges him slightly.
2016-02-20 03:37:27
Yeah, sorry about s1mple, i confused your statements with saviors one^
Sure JDM is a mediocre rifle player, and we will have to go with different opinions on that one :)
And i think Hiko just doesnt perform that well in the latter period, but hes still a top4 player in Na IMO.
2016-02-20 13:25:06
Just as good? I aren't think that
2016-02-17 21:14:30
/ip ban
2016-02-17 23:00:25
But NiKois an IGL while doing just as good as these guys so NiKo> that whole list
2016-02-18 01:07:54
Not as good as niko but still top tier. Niko is up there as one of the best players atm. Also I think that nex, magisk, and hen1 belong on the list. These are 3 players that have been absolutely destroying recently, and they can definitely make a difference for their teams this lan. Also- just as a note - I really hope that mongolz can get out of groups, the aim is there, I think if they've worked on their strats since IEM they might have a good chance looking at the teams in their group. Anyone else rooting for mongolz?

hen1 has proved nothing against top eu teams yet, so I wouldnt put him in that same tier yet

I thought the same thing at first but then NME koosta thing will make them worse than they already are, f3 are inconsistent as well. Group D for sure group of death
2016-02-17 23:19:25

2016-02-18 06:35:35

2016-02-17 19:57:36
I think G2 and TS..

yeah, f3 looked pretty bad recently.
2016-02-17 23:01:01
Yeah, and i saw Team Storm very good at IEM Katowice qualifier
2016-02-17 23:02:49
A: g2 and TS, we know they r best dude
2016-02-17 19:59:48
define "we"
2016-02-17 20:00:27
all the world except u
2016-02-17 20:03:28
lol, if this is on lan, rip TS.
2016-02-17 21:36:58
rip NA in NA major
2016-02-17 21:41:01
doesnt matter where the major is NA will still lose it even if mcdonalds airdrops them big macs
2016-02-17 21:48:50
lose I'm sure they'll.. the problem is they even have a chance to lose (not going)
2016-02-17 21:51:45
nah, I have faith in c9 or liquid making it out of groups.

alot of the good teams are choking cept the top 3
2016-02-17 21:49:12
They can Make it to the major but they will be irrelevant when it comes to making it out of groups in the major
2016-02-17 22:35:18
In LAN? Did you forget about rgn already? They can do just as well in lan
2016-02-17 22:34:30
losing to liquid 16:5?
then 2:1 to c9
then 3:0 to LG?

they literally had only like 3-4 wins.. against winterfox SKDC and CSGL, shit teams.
2016-02-17 22:43:56
They didnt play clg in LAN yet, and the 2:1 against cloud9 is exactly what i meant, they literally had a 2:0 in hands but let it go due to lack of experience and choking.
The liquid defeat was just because they were not used to their playstyle
2016-02-18 00:27:56
thats what im saying, C9 has the experience to win on lan, while TS can win online
2016-02-18 10:49:19
I thought you were calling them pronet sry.
Cuz theyve proved themselves to be a good LAN team
2016-02-18 12:29:01
all the world except u
2016-02-17 20:16:02
groub B - mouz, HR
2016-02-17 20:01:53

( I'm more a fan of c9 than renegades but don't see c9 winnning with Stewie, he plays like he's pugging)
2016-02-17 20:43:54
Stewie isn't great, but he's still better than anyone on renegades.

And Liquid will likely have to use m0e as a stand in, wouldn't be surprised to see them lose.

Lol no.
2016-02-17 21:18:18
Jks absolutely is better then Stewie. Azr and stew are about the same imo
2016-02-17 21:44:47
lol yes. Stewie hasn't had any stand out performances on LAN and has barely proved himself at all. JKS and AZR on the other hand have both proved that they can turn up and go huge on LAN.
2016-02-18 01:10:05

2016-02-17 22:49:15
fucking c9 getting an easy group. Would have loved to see them in a harder and crash out
2016-02-17 20:16:24
What do you mean? Group D is very hard. Dignitary are doing super good right now and renegade might upset them.
2016-02-17 20:28:18
Dignitas are good, yes, but 2 teams go through each group and renegades are playing even worse than c9.
Look at group c, c9 would never go through there. All of the 4 teams in group c can upset. I still think sk and clg will go through tho.
Group b has mouz, liquid, and hellraisers.
Group a has g2, tempo, and flipside.
The last said in each group are the one team I think wont go through but has the chance to.
C9 is in the easiest group unless renegades somehow get their finger out of their asses.
2016-02-17 21:00:26
I would say than Gambit has more chances than C9 and Renegades on group D, they were solid on the minor and have a lot of experience packed on that lineup.
2016-02-17 23:54:41
man, they played vs shit teams and only got like 1 round on t on train.
C9 will rekt them in a bo3
2016-02-17 23:55:30
Gambit will come 2nd in group 100%
2016-02-18 11:19:31
ok m8
2016-02-17 21:02:15
Ez group for Mongolz

did you even see dignitas recently? they are shitting on all teams.

they are the first to qualify from that group tbh.

gambit/c9/renegades could be anyone but I think it will be gambit.
2016-02-17 20:07:16
yep, they re too strong online. anyway, ill cheer for C9 i like then.
2016-02-17 20:09:53
Too strong on LAN as well
2016-02-17 23:55:32

2016-02-17 19:53:21
i think they might make it. they do good against strutured teams. and dig is a very structured team. and c9 is looking really good on their ct sides. so predictability is against them. spunj will make it work.

they only need azr to show up.

they will either rape gambit or get raped.
2016-02-17 20:02:30
yeah I don't know much about gambit but last time renegades played c9 the matches were pretty close and C9 have got worse since then while renegades are starting to look better
2016-02-17 20:04:02
smh even Mongolian teams are better than Australia's best
2016-02-17 20:13:30
Are you trying to imply that the mongolz didn't play to an extremely high standard?
2016-02-17 22:04:31
2016-02-18 06:49:32
I'm implying that u lost to one of the Asian countries with the worst scene lol
2016-02-18 13:15:14
If you didn't watch that game don't comment on it
Mongolz played incredibly well
2016-02-18 13:15:44
I watched rng get owned by pure aim lol
2016-02-18 13:18:46
So don't discredit Mongolz
2016-02-18 13:58:13
Why didn't rng just out call them since they have experience from other regions more than mongolz
2016-02-18 16:31:55
RNG play pretty poorly against unstructured teams, that pure aim and extremely loose style that mongolz had fucked them
2016-02-19 06:19:43
"they do good against structured teams"

pretty much, i always find that's when they play their best

2016-02-17 23:00:56
dosia used to be a top5 player, hooch great igl, mou very good awper, should I continue?
everyone >>>> any Clown9 player

The one from Tempo Storm, the one from Liquid

and now gtfo newfag, you dont know shit
2016-02-17 23:03:20
dosia was a top5 player in 1.6 or maybe when csgo was released, dont throw shit on me cuz you think i dont know this fucking game, they might be strong agains a fucking american pubteam like c9 when they only have 2 players that actually think and a fucking igl that instead of think about strats keeps scratching his balls and smelling it. and no way this fucking group is stronger then the clg sk group.
2016-02-17 23:05:50

2016-02-17 23:08:18
oops, you get enought of trashtalking or you just cant find facts to prove that gambit is a good team? hahaha

Koosts isn't playing with Liquid. He can only play with Enemy, the team he played for at the Minor.
2016-02-17 20:03:44
oh didnt know that... I thought that if they changed him for trial, then he is going to play with them on major qual. as well

G2, Liquid, CLG and Dignitas to top their groups and go directly.

Tempo storm, Mouz, SK, Gambit//cloud9 the last 4 qualified teams.

2016-02-17 19:56:42
mouz gonna stomp liquid
i believe <3
2016-02-17 20:03:32
They look kind of lost without gob b
2016-02-17 20:41:51
im curious how they perfom in the next matches.
GobB was a good leader but had huge problems on adapting midgame.
With the new firepower through Spiidi they can accomplish more than with Gob (i really liked gob, but he is bad in cs:go)

how they are playing it out? Will the best 2 of each groups qualifier or will they go into another bracket after group phase ?
2016-02-17 19:57:28
Top of each group qualifies to the major.

2nd and 3rd from each group qualifies to the ''quarters'' winner of each quarter goes to the major.

If my mind is right and I didn't forget something, that's how it is.
2016-02-17 20:06:46
I think they are doing what Dreamhack did at Stockholm (Cluj qual) which is bo1 double elim bracket with decider bo3. Top 2 teams from each group qualify.

There are no "quarters" but I see what you are getting at.
2016-02-18 13:29:16
G2, TS, mouz, HR, Mongolz, Vexed, Gambit, Dignitas.

clg (unless vexed magic comes out again or themongolz turn out to be god tier)

cloud9 (maybe rng if they fuck up horribly)

probably intentional that all NA teams are in their own group, MLG hoping for as much representation as possible at NA major haha

inb4 backfires and no NA teams make it

2016-02-17 20:00:38
if G2 wont make it out of groups I will eat my flip flops

G2, TS, mouz, Liquid, CLG, SK, C9, dignitas
2016-02-17 20:00:57
Finally an ez group for g2
2016-02-17 20:01:11
Group A: G2 win, F3 probably 2nd, outside chance for TS or NME (Koosta can't play for Liquid because he played with NME at the minor, so NME's coach Ryu said Koosta may play with them still)

Group B: Mouz (1) and Liquid (2) should be the clear favorites; but since Liquid can't play with Koosta, HR may have a decent chance.

Group C: CLG should be #1 in this group, no excuses to not qualify. Second could literally go to anyone; Mongolz are the clear weak team, but Machinegun can definitely just go ham and carry.

Group D: Dignitas are the clear favorites of this group. and then it's a tossup between C9 and Gambit, but I'd give Gambit a slight edge. RNG will probably still be garbage.
2016-02-17 20:01:17
is gambit actually good? thought it was one of the teams with no real chance, seemed they barely qualified in a group of t3 teams
2016-02-17 20:05:03
Dosia, Mou, AdreN, Hooch and wayLander; which I think is a pretty good lineup. But maybe it's going too far to give them an edge, it's probably 50/50 with C9.
2016-02-17 20:06:34
I think you're underrating c9, theyre pretty weak since the roster changes but I think gambit is just legit t3 while c9 is still a t2 team.
2016-02-17 20:07:39
2016-02-17 20:01:30

any group other than maybe group A would be about the same?
2016-02-17 20:04:27
Only two teams go through so there's obviously Dignitas in their group but that's about it.

C: Mongolz(better than Renegades), Vexed and SK would have given more problems to C9 for sure.

A: TS and Flipside better teams than C9

B: Liquid and HellRaisers

So in conclusion only C is close to D but D imo is easier for Cloud9 as the 1st seed.

2016-02-17 20:12:26
Gambit do have the slight edge 55 - 45 or 60 - 40. Mou - t1 - t2 AWP:er, Adren - t2 rifler, Dosia - old legend(sex god lol) hooch (haven't watched him too much) and waylander (I guess t3 rifler?). Overall it is the old HR lineup who beat NiP with slight changes, really looking forward to their games. But I love c9 also I think that group D is most exciting group.
2016-02-17 20:19:49
lol they wont make it
2016-02-17 20:04:46
Not really tbh dignitas haave been on point so its expected they will be first and gambit and renegade are no slouches i think group c is by far the lowest in skill
2016-02-17 20:06:08

Renegades: I would pick C9... They are playing bad... but they can bring it back easily I hope...
About Tempo Storm, 51%, 49% with F3... They havent proven what they are agains big team in Eu, but they have proven in IEM katowive, against clg, liquid, and C9 (the top 3 NA [I dont think that LG is NA]), so im very indecided between this 2 teams...

2016-02-17 21:43:16
i doubt this, liquid are going to destroy their group
2016-02-17 22:21:35
I reckon mouz has something to say about that.
2016-02-17 22:28:25

2016-02-17 21:45:27
tough group for c9
2016-02-17 21:50:48
Group A ez G2 and TS <3
2016-02-17 21:52:37
not a single good team there, dignitas-tempo storm in the final
2016-02-17 21:56:49
matches are isolated to their groups, dig and tempo cannot play one another
2016-02-17 22:21:02
in final i said. :D
2016-02-18 00:32:15
a/ tempo, g2
b/ liquid, hr
c/ clg, mongolz
d/ cloud9, rng

group a is clear favourites with g2 and tempo
group b could go to mouz also, liquid will 100% qualify though
group c is lackluster, sk to continue running the name through the mud
group d is the hardest to pick, dig always seem to choke when it matters
2016-02-17 22:20:14
lol liquid 100%, you mean mouz will 100% qualify?
2016-02-17 22:37:43
All of these groups are interesting and I personally cannot wait to watch the matches.

Group A: Gamers2 and Tempo Storm.
Group B: mousesports and Liquid.
Group C: SK Gaming and Counter Logic Gaming.
Group D: Cloud9 and dignitas.
2016-02-17 22:24:14
why are sotfik and dimas first names spelt different?
2016-02-17 22:30:38
Tough group for Gambit :/ hope for 2nd place
2016-02-17 22:31:29
A: G2 and Tempo

2016-02-17 23:27:59
good matches ahead, gl hf!
2016-02-17 23:29:17
YAS, not hard group for MongolZ, so much potential

Group A G2 and TS 50/50 F3
Group B Mouz and Liquid (looking weak without koosta though)
Group C SK and 60 MongolZ 40 CLG
Group D C9, Gambit (they have Dosia Mou Hooch and sadly the better AdreN right now. The 4 has played together before.
2016-02-17 23:29:50
2016-02-17 23:35:55
does nme have koosta or does liquid?
2016-02-17 23:37:36
he cant play for liquid, if he qualified with nme he will not be able to play for another team.
2016-02-17 23:51:24
that sucks, but liquid should still qualify. if they do make it to the major then can koosta play with them then?
2016-02-18 00:45:47
2016-02-18 01:23:48
they will use m0e as standin
2016-02-18 01:42:45
GL Mongolz, I believe in you
2016-02-17 23:38:04
How the hell do these double elim BO1 majors and major qualifiers keep happening that is horrendous shouldn't be knocked out after 2 BO1 losses.
2016-02-17 23:41:40
valve is the answer to your question...

2016-02-17 23:47:44
rip C9, I doubt you'll beat dignitas and Renegades.
2016-02-17 23:43:57
Dignitas will be a good game, but they're easily favorites over renegades
2016-02-17 23:58:44
I still doubt they'll beat Renegades. Renegades have better team play, C9 feels off kilter, Renegades will be hungry to make it work after losing face to Mongolz...I could be wrong. Call it a feeling.
2016-02-18 00:02:42
c9 are improving fast, but are having choking issues yet again

C9 should take group D, but with the way they've been choking, idk. I think Gambit has a decent chance to upset, it's basically ashanta dragons reborn (not as good as they used to be but still veterans). I also hope SK can get to the major, I really love watching magisk play atm.
2016-02-20 00:45:24
The mongolz will totally wreck Group C for sure if they get visa.
2016-02-18 01:48:23

2016-02-18 02:09:25

2016-02-18 09:47:35
any news on their visa? (assuming youre from Mongolia)
2016-02-18 02:22:41
no. but they said they gonna attend mlg qualifier when they gave interview on tv.
2016-02-18 06:42:15

They have very little hours played the last week compared to teams like CLG,SK who are constantly playing and practicing
2016-02-18 16:03:58
