Actually in that whole smooya and BIG situation, smooya really looked like shit during tournaments. I'm not saying it only in skillwise terms, he was shit for a while but in motivational terms.
I remember video of BIG games in playoffs of one of the recent tournaments, they were literally on the ropes, casters saying BIG has to push themselves if they don't want to get out of the tournament and then... camera switched to the players and smooya was smiling and laughing in front of the monitor. Honestly I've never seen someone who "looked" so relaxed, almost like he was playing fpl game with randoms.
Never seen something like that, of course this proves nothing, but to me - watching him play was suffering.
