"support players"
OK |

The top 3 teams in the world, Astralis, Liquid, and EG all have 5 big fraggers. They dont have "support players that dont need to frag" everyone frags on those teams. Even the IGL's Nitr0 Stan and gla1ve can top frag and take over games. what should other teams do to counter this?

Ask FaZe , they are trying it...
2019-09-29 19:36
they have no support player neither
2019-09-29 19:37
but faze dont have a competent IGL, NiKo is an unreal talent, but he is NOT an igl. if alexiB was in the roster (a fragging IGL) they could be top 5 imo
2019-09-29 19:53
They do have support players, but their support players happen to be very good

if you think that those teams dont have support players you are dumb af
2019-09-29 19:37
any given player in the team can play the support role within any given strat, roles are stupid.
2019-09-29 19:37
no they have good stats cause they dominate so hard. but they arent all huge fraggers
2019-09-29 19:38
EG and TL are 100% all huge fraggers. Astralis has turned players that used to be ok fraggers into huge fraggers, even gla1ve destroyed lqiuid yesterday

I think you're a bit confused over the concept of a support player in counter-strike.

support players exist with gods player edward for s1mple taco for coldzera...
2019-09-29 19:38
support player means that any player can sacrifice himself for his teammates getting more frags to eventually win rounds/map/match
2019-09-29 19:39
That's a decoy

So xyp9x is a potato player not support??WTF r u saying Its just that their support players are good
2019-09-29 19:40
No he is a support player, but he isnt like STYKO or TACO or edward who are "support players" and thats why they cant frag. Xyp9x is a support player who CAN FRAG
2019-09-29 19:55
they cant frag cuz they are bad players not cuz they are support
2019-09-29 19:58
this is my exact point. The term "support player" is used to defend BAD players who cant do shit, but avoid getting cut because they are "support". Players like Ethan, Xyp9x, and nitr0 are good fraggers and playing "support".

2019-09-29 22:53

2019-09-30 00:15

support doesnt mean bad, its a role
2019-09-29 19:45
Because that is not really the reason behind winning.. I mean ofc you need players that is able to kill shoot and hit. And I would say 95% of all players in top 30 can do that given the chance. As Astralis have prooven with how they changed the scene. its about tactic and teamwork.. CS is a tactical teamgame. its no longer enough to just have good shooters like the old days. the game is now better and you need more.. ( that is awesome i might add, way less boring now ) That is what we see from the best teams. and also new teams. even EG.. they are not an "old" top team. just become so. before that they where far down.. but they took the change to them. other new teams have too.. where its about team. its about movement and understand . working for eachother. Older teams fall apart because they still play the old boring way of 5 single players on a team in a tactical team game. you cant win like that any more.. we see faze, we see it dont matter you have a simple on your team.. if the team dont work. if your team cant move around togehter and play togehter. those things dont matter.
2019-09-29 19:46
Support means they trow utility/boosting/going first so the star player get info/advantage so he can shy ya know? every team have support player
2019-09-29 19:47
i mean he can shine*
2019-09-29 19:47
EG is not top 3 tho. It's Liquid, Astralis and Avangar
2019-09-29 19:57

You say this but stew, xyp, and tarik definetly facilitate the team and sacrifice some parts of their game to make the team work. In my mind that's what a support player is, not to mention all the supportive elements the igls add to the mix without even considering the actual leading that they do. They're always the glue of the play.
2019-09-29 20:05
stew and tarik arent support players... nitr0 and ethan are stew is an entryfragger and playmaker, tarik is a playmaker and part of entry pack and 2nd awp
2019-09-30 00:16
Astralis is a very role heavy team - xyp9x is a main support player, hes also a really good player.

the concept is dumb as fuck because what happens is the obviously weak link players on the team get called 'support', so players like STYKO and shit get defended when they miss every aim duel and lose every fucking bomsite because fans are blinded by the fact that 'their only job is to throw nades bro not their fault'
2019-09-29 20:39
Support players dont exist lol only retards believe that crap
