What the fuck were they thinking with these roster moves? You kick Xizt (Decent IGL) for dennis (tier8 IGL) which is a upgrade in firepower but a downgrade in strategy. Debatable change but okay.
But then you kick your best player and AWP, draken, for fucking Lekr0 who brings nothing new to the team. You already have 3 hardcore aimers (REZ dennis f0rest) so why add another one?
tldr; NiP kicks IGL and AWP for two aimers, REZ-draken-f0rest-Xizt-GeT_RiGhT was best lineup, the lineup with draken and dennis was pretty good too. NiP management retarded
Yeah we don't have a superb IGL like some other countries do but Xizt and Golden is still workable and both deserve top teams. At this point someone like hampus deserves the chance in a top team as well. THREAT is missed as a coach as well
this title just sums it up
im waiting for NIP to pick up golden
that would be only thing which makes sense
yet still that would leave them with no real awper in the lineup
they got draken for one reason, they needed a constant awper. They seem to have forgotten about it...
Yeah it's wierd, they somehow forgot how they always have played better when they had a good dedicated AWP. I remember the pyth times when he and f0rest AWPed and it wasn't pretty. Braindead moves from NiP org tbh
I'm happy for fnatic tho! =D Now they have a possible double awp if they want it on certain maps!
I'll miss lekr0 but I really wanna see fnatic in the future (hopefully we'll see some cool stuff in Cologne).
IDK man I'm a big Get right fan boy but looks like his days are over in his Professional CS career, Today's performance was his worst in his entire CS career I'm not sure whether he had double figures kill in any of the maps played today. I feel bad for NIP CEO though! They tried so many things but nothing has changed for them, Idk man just disband and form new team up to them!
Yeah he has been really bad for quite some while now. Main problem is that he started to get really affected by his disease in 2015, before that he was top2 2010-2011 and top1 2012-2014 so he certainly has it in him. If nothing else works he can step down but imo they still showed promise with their former rosters.
GeT_RiGhT is NiP but he's just throwing rounds these days and has absolutely no fragging power left. Time to do the right thing and step down as a player but move on as a coach where he'd probably do a decent job, especially mentally. pita always looked like "I couldn't care less" and makes the team only more nervous, a huge loss when Threat stepped down as a coach.
The problem is Snappi is playing for Optic and has the same problem as twist , a new contract. Thats why moddii since hes experienced aswell by leading Fnatic, sk and epsilon . I didnt know about jayzar but thanks for putting him into the list
Kicking Xizt was a dumb move now when Xizt have shown that he can frag, the fire power between dennis and Xizt is non-existing, Xizt IGL > dennis IGL
Fnatic picked him up "for free" and he is showing who's the boss.
Draken master whiffer
Here is my take:
I'm indifferent on replacing Xizt with Dennis. I feel it is a wasteful move as it doesn't help anything. Dennis is not like a genius-level IGL or anything. Maybe they want to try a new style with new IGL. Unfortunately doesnt work. Dennis basically does nothing to improve the team strat-wise.
I support kicking draken. He is just borderline average. Missing shots left and right. NIP can certainly use a better AWPer.
I like GTR and he is such a fixture on CSGO but I feel he needs to go. Sometimes it is a good thing to kick someone so he can reignite his career. Xizt is doing pretty well after he got kicked, didn't he? GTR can be the same. Playing with a stale roster is not helping him at all. He is a smart guy. He should know when to move on.
Xizt had better strats than dennis but I'm not as upset with that move as with replacing draken with Lekr0. NiP has always played better with an dedicated AWP and draken was sick. Lekr0 is a good player but you already had 3 aimstars in REZ dennis f0rest. Lekr0 brings nothing new. Draken literally carried NiP during his time there together with the GOAT f0rest.
Imo the problem is not GTR but the other things I've mentioned but his poor performance is undeniable. I would reform the roster and then give him some time.
