He is not the next s1mple or zywoo but he is a good player and team player
I think the IGLing factor of stew, especially of his time when he used to igl a kind of broke in c9 past, is overlooked. Most people think that he still is the braindead guy who used to push smokes when he was in skdc or early c9, but actually he is such a smart guy
cant tell if bait or retarded
I agree he's underrated in terms of his move to Liquid but you can't say of all NA players that HE is the next s1mple
Stew is what liquid was missing.
most overrated you mean lol
+1 he is as good as znajder
He is underrated and overrated at the same time. C9 fans overrated him way to much. But he is a pretty good utility player and a good fit on Liquid. His awp is pretty good to.
Stewie is good but Niko and simple are miles ahead of him. They have insane understanding of game mechanics and how to exploit other players weaknesses
I accompany 3 teams, coincidence or not they r the 3 teams Stew played for (C9, MiBR and Liquid). He doens't make Zywoo numbers, nor have the carry power of s1mple, but yung Stew has a very quick aim and have been responding very well on crucial moments. He makes lots of questionable decisions though.
Lol he is underrated but saying that he is anywhere near simple is extremely overrating him.
Feel like this may be an over-exaggeration but he is definitely underrated. Both him & Tarik were utilized horribly on MiBR so ofcourse their stats are gonna take a hit & 65% of the community looks at stats over almost anything else. Don't think he can reach S1mple's heights tho but could definitely be a top 3 player consistently with the right team + motivation which he seems to have right now.
IMO, my problem with Stewie is that he keeps wanting to be a rifle, but I think that he would be a fantastic primary awp. At the very least, they should keep him primary awp on CT and then keep his role as entry on T if him and Liquid want to keep him as an entry player.
I would go ahead and say he's better then Zywoo considering he's still only in his first T1 tournament.
You guys need to stop fapping to the fat 18 year old frenchman so hard.
It's laughable that S2k is as good as Niko or Simple however.
What he is is a decent playmaker on CT side and a good entry player. Plus a decent secondary AWP.
On Liquid I imagine he'll put up numbers that make him a vaunted top 20 player but almost certainly on the back half of the list.
I wouldn't go that far but stewie2k is definitely underrated (and over hated by the community)
I'd say he's more of the next olofmeister, the player who is a jack of all trades and good wherever they are put, a period of success before failure before success again <3
he was never underrated, wake up
Stopped reading at "literally the next s1mple and at the level of Zywoo or something"
Yung Stew best player ever!
If you really believe that stewie is underrated (I agree), then please present some better arguments, saying he’s better than simple just makes it seem like a stupid bait
But he is not underrated, everybody likes his playstyle
Just keep in mind that he’s literally the next s1mple and at the level of Zywoo or something
+1 agreed he took liquid at level above then taco
L fucking mao
Stewie fell off like crazy after that major win, now he is just Na pro player 20743
He has been around far too long to talk about him being the next anything. If he were to be the next big thing he would have been it by now. He is what he is.
better than simple? no way. better than zywoo? for sure lol. zywoo literally hasn't accomplished anything yet in his career, where stew has done a lot...and I don't think vitality is good enough for zywoo to really show his capability, hopefully he gets on a better team. People say navi is a shit team but in reality they are pretty damn good outside of simple, and simple just makes them top2. They are light years ahead of vitality anyway.
stewie fanboys jacking each other off in this thread
average player struggles quite often
if anything he is overrated
if i had to say stewie would be the average pro
Stewie 2x Major champ incoming
"next s1mple and at the level of Zywoo or something"
he's not even close to them. they can carry their shitty teams consistently, while stewie can't
he could be the next s1mple or zywoo probably, but he is better than those guys
he already understood back in c9 how cs works, and went into a more supportive path.
everyone doubted stewie could be a pro, he become the best pro at c9... doubted he could igl, he became the igl... doubted he could play slow and more organized, he played slow and organized
he is so complete atm, of course he isnt dropping 40bomb everygame, but fuck, this guy understands cs, he can join a team and be an usefull player... he won a major doing that ffs
guys like s1mple or zywoo, who impress because of numbers, overpeeking sucess etc, they can look impressive, but this is the type a player that will be easily neutralized by astralis or any organized top team
if we use s1mple as example, this happened in every major he had a chance to win, he destroyed teams by himself, then got neutralized by the better teams, the stewie path can be better in long term, and is already a reality, but only the smartest players will see it
Hes not underrated. Hes a good player and he gets more than enough credit.
People that call him shit are legit clueless morons.
stewie was reliable even in mibr, skillful player. liquid has huge firepower now, seems he even earned twistzz spot by the ratings ive seen.
and hes put up one of the most epic memes of last year, the stewie6k on dust2. fun stuff
solid player and more mature now.
nt b4 joining mibr he was the most overrated NA player
Everyone has been praising him in 2017, but in 2018 things changed.
All true. I think if he stuck with C9 he and autimatic could've both been top 10 players in the world right now, maybe even top 5.
Stewie is a very very good player. Complete skill tree. Liquid got alot better with him. That chemistry just didn't show when he was at mibr but even then we could see he was a very complete and important player.
