I think you forgot that s1mple had 75 cluches in 2018, while zypex had 77. Its just ridiculous, that you think zypex is much better than s1mple in cluches.

4 replies
he's known for his clutches tho, some of them were extremely hard to pull off all I'm saying is that s1mple could have literally turned the entire series of matches in Na'Vi's favor if he was a bit more calm in pressure moments, like for example in that 13 - 13 moment with ENCE, he did everything right, but in 1v1 was a bit overconfident or nervous even though he could play time and send ENCE home

they would definitely lose against Astralis, so I guess it's not a big deal
2019-03-04 01:17
Its because xyp9x barely needs to be out in clutch situations compared to s1mple because his team is just better, but then when hes put in the situstions he deliviers.
2019-03-04 16:50
yea but is xyp9x as good as s1mple? no s1mple has so much skillset when he goes over aggressive he is getting a kill 95% of times while xyp has to play slowly

true, but at the same time if s1mple was able to stay calm in high-pressure situations, he would be unstoppable
2019-03-04 00:34
S1mple is the best because he is no coward like ecovice or "oh I let my team die" xyp9x. So your advice is bad.
2019-03-04 18:46
1 reply
I didn't mean that he has to be coward and play safe as device, but sometimes he actually repeaks too much, you don't always have to take fights, especially if time goes in your favor what I meant is that he can still work a bit on his emotion control during these tense moments, mb he needs also use chewing gum or smth, so that he could make even less mistakes in-game

That's the problem. Overpass is one of Astralis' worst maps and they still manage to win, even if it's close. Meanwhile, on their best maps, it's almost impossible to beat them. 29-0 on nuke and 15-0 on inferno... It's too hard to beat them, I don't think anyone will be able to do it for quite a while.
2019-03-04 00:22

yea, all of the teams should really focus on how to take down Astralis cause everyone else is more or less beatable xD
2019-03-04 00:25
6 replies
Yea perhaps they need to start collabing how to beat Astralis, say Liquid, NaVi, FaZe, MIBR and maybe ENCE igl and coaches should sit at the same table to do some sessions over and analyze their matches together and do counter-Astralis plays. xD Don't know if that's even "legal" but would be pretty funny and sadly but true it's probably needed at this point. But at the same time Astralis do seem to put the hrs of training into it and changes their style a bit so it's not completely the same. It's pretty insane that one team is so dominant in 2018/2019 TBH, you'd think it should be enough material out there to analyze their plays at this point, through and through. Are all teams just too lazy or what? Seems like there's not enough true motivation to really go the long mile to make effective counter Astralis plays.
2019-03-04 00:42
2 replies
that's one way to do it xD I really don't know how Astralis are able to stay so dominant, but at the same time other teams make a lot of mistakes, which Astralis exploit, they use every advantage they can get and their game sense and ability to play timings and around smokes looks almost like cheating, crazy stuff
2019-03-04 00:47
Astralis have more consistent teamplay than any other team. If they can do stuff together, they will. They have good flash-peeks everywhere. They have a lot more disipline. All other top teams make at least twice the mistakes. They don't need a hero, and they have no ego within the team. Look at ence on inf.. they went full finnish faceit rush 1 by 1 in desperation

2019-03-04 00:49
no and especially not since he is bottomfragger in major final. And the fact that electronic has a kid on its way will make him worse as a player. so its like 1% that he will win major.

stfu flamie, electronic deserve a major too. when players are under preforming except once or twice a tornumnent they don't deserve to be in the 2nd best side. I want navi to win another major and navi is the team for s1mple. look at zeus when he had to 1v5 for the final round with ence and u can see he gave up so easy... would s1mple give up? would elcetronic ? would flamie? no. if u wana settle for 3rd or 4th best team instead of no 1. Then go support a shit team and don't tell me what to do u loser.

why are you so salty? if you are really a fan of navi you should know that edward isn't a shitter. sure he frags bad but he helps relieve the toxicity generated from the other 3 navi members and he's a good support overall. the real shitter here's kane. zeus is bad but he isn't that bad. you ever seen kane do anything useful other than argue with zeus and sitting there and getting drunk? no you haven't. i'm disappointed. your argument was good until you personally insulted me. obviously i triggered you alot and that you are more biased towards s1mple than anything. chances are that you'd change your flair the moment s1mple joins another team. try to reply without calling me names thanks

smh kane is as useful as a condom is to a virgin. That's why I think zeus should become the coach. navi means "born to win" u can't win a major with edward, zeus and kane. I wish ur argument was good but sadly it isn't, from what I see if ur happy to lose to ence and finish 3rd then there isn't point arguing with u. S1mple isn't as toxic as before and the uses of zeus and edward are running out. Flamie and electronic are near prime form so it's time to take astralis's crown. CIS has a lot of talent that could make a navi era. why not give them a shot... can't be worse then EDbot and Zeusbot. A team that relies solely on individual talents to win is already at a setback. Welcome to navi!!!

i'm not saying the team doesn't need changes but if you wanna make irrational changes like these then you'll just end up like mousesports. they thought removing bot styko would make things better and look at them, total useless. ence was a fluke and they aren't getting a legend slot ever again. -kane +zeus as coach and +jame or qikert would be a good addition. edward is bot yes but i feel like he doesn't need to be kicked yet, he still shows up in pistol rounds and anti eco (lul) and makes a great support.

irrational ? they are both 30+ and not a single person in legends stage could lose in a 1v1 to them. zeus as a coach is essential change to progress. edward does good on pistols? ur logical is baseless if a player is only good when the other team doesn't have armour or guns, then he is shit. A good support player either gets vital info or can hold his own against an enemy player, steals a gun. Very few times do i notice that Edward is actually in playing the game, Forget supporting the team. u act like edbot is getright and zeus is forest. BS zeus and edward in their prime would struggle against a washed up forest. like i said multiple time if ur happy with the current state of the team why are u even trying to argue??? navi is already declining it will soon be worse than C9 if the players don't change(themselves/roster). they didn't even make it to the finals this year, next time they might not make it to legends. i would rather fans like u go support gambit or big cuz they match ur lack of ambition. Same predictable map pool - in fact lost on their strongest map train, bad ban and picks as always ; no contribution from the bots to change the course of game. yep Astralis are here to stay for decades.

so you're saying i should not support navi because you dislike the changes i suggested? i'm not "happy" with the current state of the team. but flamie has been just as inconsistent as edward and somehow edward's the problem here? so you want to remove him and add some random cis pugger and expect the lineup to magically work? edward is washed up but no one in cis is like him atm. navi doesn't have a choice. the map pool i can agree with you but **edward_can_not_be_replaced_yet**

really?? flamie was carrying previously did u not see his double pistol aces on the same map. he has potential edward doesn't. genuinely I 90% of the time edward makes no contribution to the team. most games in the major u just see him in the kill feed as dead. a few rounds he will get 1/2 kills he is 31 and is a leech, he needs to leave navi. pretty sure any entry fragger does a better job then him so I am sure it will work quite nicely. Boombl4 is a pretty good replacement and i would give up zeus and edward for him. This is my opinion.

Dont get me wrong he is by far top1 in raw skill, but we are in 2019, players like that wins series but dont win tournments, the stars need to aline for this happen. This loose style overpeek shit wont get them anywhere nowdays, pay attention, everytime the games get close he go nuts and try to do everything lol, rhe proof of my toughs is the individual level of s1mple being insana, nilo same things, but both are the most insane skill players that dont win anything! While other superstars like cold or device looks less impressive cuz they play for the team always. Titles prove it.

It's true, but cold and device both have much better teammates tho, Zeus and Edward lucky to have few good games or good tournament, Flamie inconsistent af, Electronic even dropped off lately, so even if s1mple played more for the team like you're saying, I bet it wouldn't change their results much, they need big changes

The team system is shit and Sony have balance When felps joined sk the first time, falleb gave him freedom and the team played around him, he uses to have insane ratinho but the team was shit, at the time you could say cold and felpa deserved a better team, but fallen made him adapt to the team. Result was, he got less ratinho, but they éon 4 big titles in a row! All about style and roles, we are not in 2015 anymore, s1mple in mibr or astralis playing like he does now on navio wouls break the teams, he would work only if adapted, mates are not the problem!

mates are also a big part of the problem, but, of course, Na'Vi mainly have to focus on communication, teamplay and improving strats for sure to be honest, in NiKo's case it's similar to Na'Vi because it's definitely not that super team now, olof and rain played really bad if we consider how they used to play, lack of good IGL-ing also played a significant role in their slump, instead in Astralis every player can step up in any moment, so they are actually more of a superstar team now than FaZe is

I agree, but the thing is, for example, I dont know how to explain this in english, but tell me if u understand niko and s1mple are sooo far ahead of anyone else, in raw skill etc, their potential to overpeek and get a 4k is probably top1 and top2 together right now, and been for a couple of years actually, so them, not realizing they need to humble up, and try to play as a team, is their fault, thats why I blame them! cuz for example, maybe if s1mple joined astralis or mibr, he would respect gla1ve and fallen, and do whatever they ask for, cuz they are legends, to me this "oh bad mates etc" is just a matter of them ignoring that nowdays meta wont work like that on easy matches s1mple can play more organized cs, but on those 11x11, in the pressure moment, he WILL overpeek, ask for an awp in a force buy etc, same with niko. look at coldzera, device etc, if they had this type of atitude, no one could go against, if fucking coldzera or device is asking "i will fix this shit, lets forcebuy boost me at X spot", you will do it. cuz if you dont, he can get pissed etc and he is 10x better than everyone in the team, so is up to him, the star player to deal with it and not be a dick niko clearly has a huge ego and think he is better than he actually is, but s1mple idk, he probably just dont understand what goes on lol edward flamie and zeus were amazing at super structured cs in 2015/16, of course they will look like shit in a team with a superstar that is always the rotator or 3rd guy in/lurker as T =p, just a matter of knowing how cs works if s1mple humbled up, he would lose a little bit o rating, giving space to others, then I would see him as perfect player, but kids would say he is washed up, I guarantee 100% LMAO
2019-03-04 19:08

Yes, I understand what u mean. Although, It looks to me that s1mple becomes more and more humble as time goes, but he still gets easily frustrated when things go wrong and his overconfidence sometimes doesn't pay off, but, with that being said, his confidence in taking risky fights and making crazy plays is what made him so good and it saves Na'Vi in many desperate situations. Plus, I've noticed, as probably everyone who watches Na'Vi matches that when they are low on money he would rather give Edward or Zeus ak and leave only deagle or p250 for himself. The problem with Na'Vi is in their flawed approach to the game, they rely too much on individuals even though only s1mple and Elec are truly the star players in this team and this, combined with average communication, lack of good strats and choke factor in finals make them fail in those tense situations. I'm trying to say that s1mple is the smallest of Na'Vi's problems right now, It's much more deeper than that.

I agree, but I guess he just need a fallen or gla1ve in his life, cuz its exacly like niko in that aspect, both dont have the knowledge enough to realize, that if they break up mentaly, their teams's chance is gone 100%... its a part of the player "greatness" to have this type of mentallity etc... but I agree on him being more humble now, 100%! he is better in that aspect, I though zeus could fix him, dont I guess he is too bad in raw skill to make a statement lol, all those details counts I guess but I hope the best for s1mple tho, I like the guy, this mothafucka NEED to win at least one major

ok, lets assume everything you said is right, and I am wrong. first, you could aply this to NiKo, cuz is a similar deal... now explain to me, why guys like device, coldzera, olof have soooooooo many more achievments in their carreer, with different types of lineups, and s1mple and NiKo has so little, everytime looking like the GOAT cuz of their rating, niko fans had the same excuse as you, they dont have any cuz he played on faze after +guardian +olof if you pay attention, you dont need to wait till s1mple get into faze or whatever, cs is 5v5 dude, you dont even need to go +50 everytime lol, just doesnt work like that if you disagree, explain to me why this happens, why niko and s1mple has way less achievments, while their fans put them as GOAT contenders, while guys like device who kids hate on, and call it a baiter etc, have way more achievemtns? I agree on s1mple being top1 raw skill atm, and I agree by far... but this is just one aspect of the game lol, pro cs isnt a DM server xD

He can win with NaVi, but not this NaVi. I think he should continue playing with Electronic, maybe flamie, but Zeus and Edward have to go, despite their decent performace this major. The problem would be to get a tier 1 IGL who would have the trust and respect of s1mple and could outcall people like Glave or Fallen. But that's the problem of the entire CIS scene, not just Navi or simple. Jame used to IGL and is super skilled, but could he lead a team to a major title? I doubt. Angel is not as good individually as he used to be...

He does, he just has to part ways with NaVi and join another team (most likely European-mixed team) in order to be successfull. He really deserves that, in my opinion he the best individual player on earth besides NiKo. I slightly favour s1mple.
