G2's problem

Hungary BodyOnceToldMe 
hltv.org/stats/players/13497/Lucky?start.. Lucky is so fucking shit. He's worse than SmithZz. I swear to god, I believed in Lucky, defended him and he just keeps on giving worse and worse stats. Now I think he should be bombed out of this roster. I hope he sees this thread and rethinks what he had given this community. He ruined G2. He is the worst player, hands down, in all of Framce, maybe in all of Europe. -Lucky +Deadfox at this point

hltv.org/stats/players/13497/Lucky?start.. Oh yeah, and if you put it to last 3 months instead of last month it just gets worse

i was thinking if RpK could clone him self 5 time it could make a french superteam, easily better than current g2 & vitality

I love how quick people are to scapegoat Lucky when G2 brought literally nothing to this bo3. Yes he had a poor performance but not even an above average one would have won this bo3 for G2. Tactics were inadequate and basic, none of the stars showed up (the people lucky and jackz create space for) and they seemed discombobulated on every front - buys, utility usage, comms, etc.
2019-07-20 06:35
Jackz, amanek literally carried their asses off and kenny was good too

I wouldnt call Kenny's performance good in any sense. Its below his average and it clearly wasnt enough for G2 to win. This roster pretty much cant win vs top teams unless Shox/Kenny perform very well/carry currently. Anyway my post clearly targeted the tactics and structure of G2, not their skill. Everyone can see that G2 on paper is a high skill team.

Yeah. If G2 lose to MIBR it can't be the fault of one player. It is a mental thing. They lost focus on the match and before they even realized it was too late. Just watch the interview with KennyS right before the game. That didn't look like someone who was going on the stage soon. It looked like someone who didn't have next game for another few hours. He was so relaxed it looked like he was on tranquil.

They went off because the team spirit is better now and because they have a more solid game plan thanks to have Zews. So hopefully they'll pick up another support player to do all the unsatisifying job as Zews do, have a positive personality and decent fragging power.

Yeah but by map 3 all of that should go away, you should be deeply concentrated on the bo3 by that point otherwise I doubt their mentality in any series. Honestly they just got out called by Fallen most of the series and consistently got caught off guard on CT sides. G2 doesn't ave a plethora of plays/traps or tactics to fall back on like other elite teams, they simply run a handful of setups on either side of the map and rely on their skill to get through games.

Could be because French arrogance, the teams mentality, that they didn't practice or prepare for the game... could be a lot of things. But it isn't uncommon for G2 to drop a match here and there. Yeah. I agree. They have more of a few default setups and then a few different pushes depending on openings
2019-07-21 11:38
It was really weird because the day before they looked so strong and confident, and were the closest team to beating liquid.

2019-07-22 12:33
"Yes he had a poor performance" No, he had 6 months of poor performances, that's different. Also there is a huge difference between someone who had bad stats but is still useful to the team in other ways and someone like Lucky who is either sitting behind waiting for Jackz and shox to do something, either doing retarded moves and dying like a bot. Half of the few kills he gets are either exit kills, eco kills or failed clutches. No, Lucky doesn't create space, Jackz does, Lucky does nothing. He has no impact whatsoever. So yes, his removal is needed for G2 to become a top team. Just because other players didn't show up yesterday doesn't mean people shouldn't target him as the weak link, because he definitely is.

Lucky has the 2nd most entry attempts on the team, Jackz is the primary entry and Lucky the 2nd and he plays the garbage CT roles, same as bodyy used too. His undperformances a greatly overstated as well. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/284/JaCkz.. Slightly behind Jackz and was even better than him at the start of the year, so no it hasnt been even close to 6 months. Replacing him with a better fragger could net results but it will not propel this team to the next level as it doesnt target the bulk of their issues.

+1 lets wait until the major to see what should happen
2019-07-21 09:03
Rating has never had much importance to me, it really doesn't say much about the players' true performances. 0.85 impact pretty much says it all, honestly the rest barely even matters. His stats at the start of the year take into account his 3DMAX stats, so that's not really relevant either. Also, I had already explained that before in another thread, Lucky was baiting like crazy in his first few months in G2. His team most likely told him to grow some balls and stop baiting like that, which he partially did despite still being passive, but of course that also revealed his true level in terms of stats. But even when he had "decent" stats I had already said here that he had absolutely no impact and that he was never gonna have the level for a top team without improving massively. I don't look at stats to have an opinion about a player, I just watch matches. And Lucky is one of the most useless players I've seen in a team. Whether his stats are terrible, bad or average doesn't really matter to me, all I see is that he is not a player that can play in a top team at the current moment. What could really benefit G2 would be to get Davidp. He is a good IGL, a very decent fragger, and that would allow shox to focus more on his game, because he has always been on and off individually when IGLing. With that change, you'd get more firepower than with Lucky, a better IGL and a better shox. And there you're targeting the bulk of their issues. But of course, with shox's obsession for leading, that's unlikely to happen.

So you complement David's fragging who use it be on a team with lucky and was a worse fragger during that period by an undeniable margain hltv.org/stats/teams/players/4914/3DMAX?.. Lower ADR, kpr, impact. It's clear you'll say anything to press your narrative.
2019-07-22 03:27
Stats, stats, stats... Just because someone plays well against tier 4 doesn't mean he'll play well against tier 1. By your logic, Lucky should be playing better than Jackz right now just because he had a higher rating in 3DMAX, yet he clearly isn't, and he's not even close. You can get away with having a bad aim against tier 4 (and Lucky does have a bad one I think we can at least agree on that), but you're bound to hit a glass ceiling at some point if you're not skilled enough for tier 1. And one more thing to take into consideration, Lucky was a hybrid in 3DMAX. He'll never get that role in G2 with shox and Amanek both being better hybrids, so it's not only that he's bad, but on top of that he doesn't really fit. If you've ever watched 3DMAX, then you know he was actually having impact back then, and he wasn't afraid to go first when he had an awp. I'm not saying Davidp is a great player, but he's someone that could benefit to G2 on 2 different levels. Lucky however, is very limited in terms of skill and can't play the same role he had in 3DMAX, so I wouldn't say he has a bright future in G2. At best he can adapt and stop being an absolute deadweight, but he won't be someone who'll bring much to the team.

You do realize stats are literally a record of what happens in the game right? They do give answers. So you think logically that someone who played worse vs tier 4 will play better vs tier 1? That just makes no sense. I didnt say Lucky was playing well or was supposed to play well I'm saying that if your averaging a 1.0 rating vs tier 3 teams you're going to get eaten alive in tier 1. Just look at Neo. Maybe if they actually put him in the roles he liked the team would benefit. That's just shox thinking he has to do everything as always. If he would delegate responsibility properly and put players in beneficial roles the team would have a much higher chance of success. Why does shox need to AWP when hes one of the best riflers in the world. The team would benefit more if he gave the AWP to lucky because it's an easier weapon and Lucky is clearly a weaker rifler.
2019-07-23 03:35
"So you think logically that someone who played worse vs tier 4 will play better vs tier 1? That just makes no sense." Different skillsets are more suited to different levels of competition. Just look at the link you posted above, Lucky had a higher rating than Jackz in 3DMAX, and now Jackz is 10 times better against tier 1. So of course someone who plays worse against tier 4 can play better against tier 1. That's easy to explain, Jackz's performances depend on him more than his opponents, he has a good aim and he's good at peeking, so if he's in a good day he'll play well no matter what competition he has to face. The difference in terms of mechanical skill is not huge between tier 4 and tier 1, someone who can aim against tier 4 can aim against tier 1. Lucky doesn't rely on his aim to perform well, and some of what he was doing in 3DMAX doesn't work against the top teams. But of course, I wouldn't mind seeing Lucky play a bit more with the awp to get a little closer to his role in 3DMAX, that could help.

Not someone who played that much worse. The difference between Jackz' stats and Lucky's is negligible especially with roles considered. David's aren't thats just mediocre at tier 3, Jackz was at least above average and also looks good mechanically in game. Jackz also stayed in the role hes been playing his whole career, Lucky as we discussed didnt. I think were pretty much on the same page. Lucky could be a better player but it wouldnt fix G2s issues structurally. I really dont think it matters who you have in that role, the team is too inconsistent structurally, I hope they can add some layers to their game during the player break

He wouldn't let NBK lead He didnt like Ex6tenz leadership and Ex6tenz said he didnt get to implement his system fully If he was less arrogant he wouldnt be forced to lead. If you cant work with multiple top IGLs in the scene it's more your fault than the orgs. What are they supposed to do just poof up a tier 1 IGL?
2019-07-23 09:38

Riiight. I highly doubt one of the most experienced owners would make a black and white decision like that. It's much more the case that Shox couldn't work with any of the IGL options and now the only option is for him to IGL.
2019-07-23 09:43
Shox litteraly said he didnt want to IGL, it was either Ex6tenz say that or Ocelot but if you wanna be blind go ahead

Him saying he doesnt want to IGL is irrelevant. He put himself in a position where that's the only option. If he didnt want to IGL he should have let NBK do it or should suggest to get ex6tenz back or try davidp

Honestly, amanek is gd enough, he was the one who added depth to G2's map pool. Their only problem now is a solid anchor which they trust lucky to do but isnt good enough for it. I feel like they need kio more than they need zywoo. So many times I saw lucky holding a site alone and he does a lot of mistakes that sometimes catch him out of position and rendering him useless.

2019-07-23 05:37
The team often lack synergy. Liquid for example play off each other very well as of lately. G2 plays more individually and can’t adapt as well on the fly. Team chemistry is very important and one of the most if not the most underrated characteristic of a top team. This is a quality that can not be taught. Old G2 with ScreaM and rpk has that. Scream and kio has that. ScreaM doesn’t have that on his current team and shouldn’t be on that team imo albeit, they are decent. Chemistry really brings out the best in players. Something faze currently lack right now as well.
2019-07-21 17:46
I've been watching G2 a lot these past few months and I can tell you they have a lot of synergy with each other, and was one of the reasons that enabled them to get to EPL finals. The game vs MIBR was an anomaly. Literally did the exact opposite of the teamplay they built on. Played individually against MIBR which caused Shox and Kenny to underperform.
2019-07-23 04:49
Hes so fucking bad lmao, but all the remaining good frenchies are on Vitality, and no way they would leave for G2

2019-07-23 05:08
-lucky +smithZz since they are both pretty bad, they should just add smithZz since that would give shox a skillboost of 50% .... he will be happy to play with his boyfriend again
2019-07-22 07:39
He said he never come back.

Resurgence of shox -lucky -amanek +alex +smithzz im honestly very intrigued by the idea of shox being a star in a functional team with a tier 1 igl and smithzz in it. Would he be able to come close to his peek and become a top 5 player again? Or is it too late and he is too old now + married, stepson

Hands down -lucky should happen ...and why wait till the major .. G2 can use a player before the major and see how he can perform at the big stage because we have all seen how lucky frags ..+kio ( if things are good between kio shox and kennyS ) kio is a better fragger and an anchor then many other french superstars even .. Another biggest issue with g2 constantly loosing is lack of consistency from jacks and amanek ..look at the scores when g2 win ..its kennyS on top shox second then jacks or Amanek in most cases .. the issue being if jacks performs then amanek plays shit ..if amanek performs jacks is nowhere in the fragging units .. So G2 should stop relying on jacks and amanek performing on individual days and need more from these 2 players as a unit.

Last sentence nailed it. This team doesn’t play as a team, they lack chemistry. Can’t teach that.
2019-07-23 03:28
If you watched every G2 game you would know that sentence isnt true... Only that game vs MIBR where they play as individuals.

No it is true. They're very inconsistent when it comes to playing off of each other because they're inconsistent as individuals and dont have a load of protocols, plays, and structure like other teams. When they're in form they play off their teammates excellently and when they're not they dont. They dont have strong defaults and consistent map control like other teams nor do they have a deep playbook. G2 has never shown that they can keep their teamplay at an elite level for more than a tournament. It also doesnt resonate logically that they would have good cohesion. They have a bunch of skill-based players, and pretty much all of their players like taking risks. They also have shox as an IGL who is obviously a very loose caller and shox has even said that he doesnt focus on details too much because it makes him play worse. Furthermore if they had great teamplay then they'd be a consistent elite team because the talent is there in spades. Theres clearly something missing on the server with G2 and it boils down to a lack of cohesion and depth compared to the elite squads.
2019-07-23 08:03
However what you said isnt true, Ive watched almost all g2 matches in almost all their tournaments and they rely mostly on teamwork a lot. They dont only perform in one tournament lol what are you talking about? An average of 3rd to 4th placing in big tournaments sound like they are elite to me. and im talking about esl pro league and iem events, they manage to almost get to semifinals everytime with the exception of iem chicago which they played really poorly vs mibr even though the day before they had a close game vs liquid and destroyed mibr. Thats like the only anomaly so far.
2019-08-06 05:14
If you check the ranking points the form of G2 is higher than even vitality, the guy was wrong

As if form has anything to do with what i said and its literally by 1 point because vitality slacked off in online matches at the end of MDL and then trolled the finals. Look at the achievement points and then come back to me.

They rely on teamwork but that doesnt mean their teamwork is elite and they are inconsistent with it because they dont have as structured of a system as the elite teams do. No they are not Elite. They have high highs and low lows and its very dependent on how many of their players show up and are capable of maximizing their teamwork but it is not structured it is reactive. Its not the only anomaly at all in fact its not an anomaly its a trend. When teams like Forze, optic, cr4zy, and french frogs are beating you at LAN tournaments/huge qualifiers such as the GGBet Cologne one you are not elite. Making a few quarterfinals and having a rare run where the beast teams they beat Faze another incredibly inconsistent team and NRG after daps was removed yet still playing due to roster locks is not something i see repeatable at a major or a Cologne and does not claim as elite. Let me ask you something, they have Shox a legendary player, elite aimer. Jackz who is looking to be an elite entry soon, kenny an elite AWPer and decent supportive elements. If they have the teamwork elite as you say then why cant they beat the top 4 teams and why do they struggle with lesser opposition?

Youre wrong about g2 being this inconsitent as you are trying to say. They lost to French Frogs, Optic and Cr4zy in may. They added AMANEK a month earlier. If he was a regular role player you would have a point as not much would change with his addition in terms of setups, but even then there would be the excuse of a new addition. But AMANEK soon after he joined he started working with malek and shox and reworking how they play with his style kinda like Alex did in Vitality, it didnt look good immediately now did it? You are criticizing them for losing to cr4zy, a bo1 opener to FrenchFrogs in overtime where they threw hard and a loss to Optic online as a 1 month old team? Weak point then. And to adress the loss against forze, G2 had that game, they threw inferno in overtime, and they still didnt reach their peak with amanek which they did at EPL, you are forgetting this is still a 3 month old team before the break and that they need time hitting their peak? Where was vitality 3 months into its forming, losing to Sprout. So you are wrong about them being inconsistent, as with amanek they are only now starting to reach their peak ( amanek obviously changing a lot of as a co igl ) and the only anomaly they've had as an elite team is losing to mibr. They were fairly consistent in their performance bar online play ever since they were formed, relative to their development and time as a new team

Exactly it's a young team with inconsistencies that will take time to work out. I have no doubt the team has the capability to be elite, they just currently arent there yet. If they're not inconsistent then name another top 10 team with a wider range of losses to lower teams. I'm not wrong they have a looser system than pretty much every top 10 team and are skill-reliant. They're not an elite team just a good one. And I'm sorry are you referring to the meaningless MDL match on sprouts best lmao after Vitality qualified for LAN? Because otherwise they dont lose to sprout. Context matters, I said LAN/huge qualifiers. Stop deflecting the issue. If G2s team work is elite then where do their issues lie? hltv.org/matches/2334540/vitality-vs-spr.. That was the most important game they played vs sprout. All I'm hearing is G2 had a bad day, g2 choke, g2 threw. Is that a sign of an elite team?

right but he still does pretty shit compared to other entries. besides, knowing shox luckys gonna get the boot.

There are many late rounds when JACKZ has to entry cuz lucky is that and those are the times when JACKZ gets a 3k and opens up sites
2019-08-06 06:13
I can gurantee you that this is not a matter of skill but of his role. He is not going to be kicked.

g2 basically looks like -kenny carrying + 4 bots or -kenny carrying, shox doing well, 3 bots kenny (and shox when he isnt forced to igl) is at a much higher skill level compared to the rest of the team. i think they just need another star player (zywoo makes sense, he can rifle as well) and a dedicated igl. im thinking something along the lines of: -kennys -shox -zywoo -alex -kioshima? jackz?
2019-08-06 05:49
Jackz is also amazing, look at his movement and crosshair placement, literally shox. But amanek is also great, he is their best train player. Lucky is the one who is yet to show anything
2019-08-06 06:15
+1 Jackz is a great player.. Yeah mayb - Lucky +kio or devodudek
