He isnt washed up that is for sure, also this team wasnt even gathered by him and the roster was made by malek and ocelote, they also "forced" shox to igl again ( there is no other option ) while shox said that he isnt cut for leading vocally on social media when the superteam was collapsing.
So it isnt him gathering shit teams.
Yeah you're right shox massively dropped off when he took a more micromanaging and gard igl role in 2017 with the superteam g2. His hand injury might have played a part jn it too, he stated that he had awful pains at some times.
He already dropped off like the second the roster was made while he was dominqting in the previous g2 so his dropoff cant be due to him being washed up.
Even right now he isnt setting himself up and playing the support on both at and CT but he is fucking getting away with it simply by winning unfavorable duels with his suberb skill.
I strongly believe that with the right support and igl for him he can be top1. He is the 3rd greatest cs player of all time, an untral talent and is "only" 26 afterall, it isnt too late
He looked as sharp as ever the last 2 bo3's :)
