C9 needs to make a big boi moves
 | 
Indonesia verky 
Don't make an international roster, just build around auti and tarik (rush optional, man's a great support, might as well keep him) and surround em with NA's big boi. Since all the A+ NA players are on Liquid already, here's some options thats somewhere close to their level : Awp : Cerq, Nifty, Shahz Rifle : nahtE, Brehze, Sick (this youngman is good trust me) Or maybe just tank for future stars like Tenz & s0m

If you're comparing nifty and cerq, you can see that cerq is the young talented player that has a lot of potential in him, but in the same time, nifty is an experienced player that has played in many international competition, and at the same time, nifty is somewhat an igl for the current RNG team, and at the same time, the guy is awping like crazy. Im not saying cerq is bad or anything but i think role wise and experience wise, nifty got the better of him
2018-05-26 03:29
the guy is awping like crazy hltv.org/stats/players/events/9069/Nifty.. no he doesnt. he has 1 good map here and there (like that one against mouz) but other than that his performance is actually pretty bad
2018-05-26 05:34
Nifty is better than Ska. Only inconsistent since he IGLs also. I rather see Koosta or Rickeh over Nifty tho

If they want a player not in contract then Koosta or Richeh. MUCH better than JDM and neither are in contract.

Why doesn't anybody suggest mixwell? He already played with RUSH and tarik in OpTic
2018-05-26 03:33
#24
 | 
Indonesia verky 
He's also a solid choice come to think of it. He's still in a loan situation in G2 right? So therefore, optic still got the contract in their hand right?
2018-05-26 03:38
He's on trial and OpTic released him from his contract since it was gonna expire like 2 weeks after they dropped the EU team
2018-05-26 04:19

 |

Ahh i see, so if G2 doesn't end up signing him, he'll be a free agent. That's quite a move for c9
2018-05-26 04:22
G2 probably won't sign him if the Flickshot reports are right since G2 is dropping everyone apart from KennyS and possibly bodyy depending on if NBK- decides to play on shox's roster.

I agree I don't think mixwell have anywhere to go on the French Shuffle, that's why I feel that he going to C9 would be a fantastic move
2018-05-26 13:16
A lot of people think hes gonna go to Tempo Storm with Kairi to replace innocent and HS. He'd probably AWP over Fox and Fox would IGL then which could be good.
2018-05-26 16:11
Wait for SK experiment to fail this year and get stew back. If ska has no motivation left could get cerq or Nifty or even jdm/ mixwell if they are desperate

It's already failing at the moment tbh. But with that many world class player, it's a sin to think that they wouldn't figure out their issues and be a top team again
2018-05-26 03:40
Can see them getting on level of FaZe and NaVi but astralis right now is too much for every team. Even vs 5 s1mple astralis would win because they have perfect crossfires and teamplay.

We will see how long this last. There was one tournament, I can't remember which, where people said the EXACT same thing. That this was the beginning of the Astralis era because they overwhelmed people with teamwork. This might have been after the ELEAGUE major. However, after IEM WC, they began to not win as much and it was only after a year did they win something premier again.

Let me rephrase that. They were looking like they're failing, but they won the adrenaline championship thingy recently so that might be a bright light for them. We'll see how good they'll be in starseries, then we can decide if their rebuild is failing or nah

2018-05-26 05:18
i dont want shaz back in c9 after the hell hole in 2014-15 before ska but Major changes that i want Tarik rush and Autimatic these are now the core 3 players for c9 especially autimatic for being themost consistent player ever since 2016 As for skadoodle and FNS, FNS as an igl sounded right, if it was back in 2017 before tarik and rush. But now since he joined c9 i havent seen them in a playoffs event other than Mairselle. As for skadoodle, he hasnt been consistent in other tournaments other than c9 going out of groups and major, the peak of ska's skill was presented in 2014-15 when he was in ibp and the c9 powerhouse of an NA team with sean freak shroud and n0thing. But after sean left and stewie joined he lost his prime and motivation like shroud. But after the tarik and rush swap they managed to win 3 events and multiple top 4 finishes making them top 5. But for ska now after the major he was considering leaving after stewie's departure. Since the NA scene lack of any IGL or awper other than the previous C9 players. It nails down to few players who can manage. BUT there is a player that COULD do BOTH ROLES, Nifty. He although hasnt managed to make RNG win an event or any play offs other than winning Starseries, and making a play off in Sydney. If C9 can get Nifty and another consistent NA player with either Nathe or a possible liquid player, it could bring c9 back to its form before the Eleague Major.

Building it around Skadoodle is an even better option. See, Skadoodle can go nuclear if he is set up to. But right now he's a support for some reason. Tarik and auti can both play at star levels on their own. Set up Skadoodle as that guy who can run around and do whatever the fuck he wants and Bam Cloud9 top 3 again.

Actually ska is a player that hasnt got initiative. Seangares, n0thing, freak, tarik, stew have said that so what you need to do to make ska great again is bring a solid and experienced IGL so that he can be told what to do. Probably the greatest mind in NA CS is Seangares so considering him would be an option as when he was in misfits he did a fine job. And other teams like fnatic have shown that the IGL doesnt have to frag necessarily. On the other hand, autimatic has shown that he has a difficult time when he plays in a structured team so you could consider replacing him. I know auti "was and is" one of the best players in NA but when things go wrong you need change. I would replace auti for a young upcoming talent that can receive the help of experienced players on the roster like sean, tarik, ska... The roster would look like this: -Tarik - upcoming talent - Seangares -Rush -Ska Please read everything before replying and respect my opinion. its an underwhelming roster but i think it will work as a top 10 team and with time and effort, a top 6 team.
