he was never bad.
he was on denial/liquid. he got cut after they got elige. it was a stupid move considering that roster had daps adren and fugly. but he got cut. even tho he was performing great.
he went to luminosity. lex fl0m pyth ptr etc. they went to a lot of lans. they lost like 15 maps in a row. he was still good individually.
conquest/optic. he was good, team upset a couple of times they gpt super good after they cut shahzam cuz he is a toxiccunt. and they got super fucking good. won eleague etc.
stan left, rush and tarik left. he went to renegades. literally carried them. even tho rest of the players were good they werent as good to win tournaments or the minor itself. last 3 months of 2017 he was the best lan player in the world, also won starladder.
so no. he was never bad. he got better. dude aced against titan and got a sick 4k clutch s them in his first lanin 2014.
