stewie isnt hard to replace although he can go off with the awp sometimes....
so in 2020 we will have an EU Cloud 9 ?
his playstyle is pug.....thats y every 14 year old loves him and any seasoned vet knows he is trash...why do u think auto didnt wana go with him to sk?
NA is so retarded, as soon as they have a really good team. ex = optic with stanislaw and this recent cloud 9 team with stewie, they leave..... and the whole scene becomes worse again. They need to use their heads more, liquid meanwhile is loving this, they are getting all the right players from this mess.
The problem with FNS’ C9 is they were changing IGL styles dramatically which was too impactful on the team as a whole. Also it’s kinda known at this point that RUSH is fairly inconsistent as a fragger and that they pretty much had 2 solid players which is not enough at all.
The only reason optic failed so hard was because Stan was an integral piece in their success and optic never really went for a similar IGL to fill the role, but technically C9 hasn’t lost their good IGL, he just doesn’t want to do it anymore. Tarik IGLing at the ECS finals is a good sign though, hopefully he takes up the role again and they get another hybrid style player like stew or just a straight up fragger.
I think this going to be a a cycle, c9 disbands then joins col then wins a big tournament then disbands after a while then join ghost etc
