TACO IS A GENIUS
 |

MF somehow managed to convince the scene about this 'support' player bullshit so he can keep playing like a bot his whole career, whilst being carried and making six figures. You have to admit the geniality behind that man, cause if it wasn't for this supp role BS, there's no fucking way in the world someone actually would believe that guy is a good player.

It's also mindblowing how lucky he is, cause he left SK when they were slumping and immediately went to Liquid, whose core was already becoming elite and started carrying him in 2018 like SK did in 2016 and 2017 hahahahaha. It's almost unbelievable.

yup and to top it off TACO alongside Zews was what the community said made Liquid so good and consistently #2 in 2018 so when he felt like going back to MIBR they were so ready to trade Stew for him.

You know it's much easier to have good stats when your team is winning 16-6? In more important games he's always been a bot.

having the best adr of your team even crushing the opponent isnt something ? well cya
2019-10-10 00:57
What kind of argument is that haha? Major final is just the most important match of all CS matches. If they won 16-6 it was 'cause taco overperformed and destroyed them
2019-10-10 01:21
So you suggest that a match against avangar was one of the most important in Astralis players' careers?
2019-10-10 02:26
Yes, their fourth major title. Could you think how do they would feel if they have lose that game ? It wasn't the hardest one, but ofc one of most important in their careers, if not the most important 'cause they take the most major record with that win.
2019-10-10 02:36
ok but they got rid of taco at some point - did they instantly become better?

The thing is: the SK core was already slumping before Taco left. That was not the reason they continued to be shit.
2019-10-10 00:56
so basically you need 3 good players who are in a good shape and the remaining 2 can be just below average making sure the core is performing well? then whats the problem with taco
2019-10-10 01:06

Because he'll never be able to carry a game. When you look at astralis, although magisk, dupreeh and device are usually on the top; glaive and xyp9x are able to carry some games when the others are playing bad. Taco, on the other hand, will never do that. He's like Zeus: one good game in 100.
2019-10-10 01:09
but many teams proved that they dont need every member from that team to be able to often carry a game and be successful
2019-10-10 01:17
they didn't get worse either they had been struggling a lot in the beginning of 2018, hence they kicked him.
2019-10-10 00:56
yeah thats why Im questioning what the op said
2019-10-10 01:06
I thought they were close to kicking him, so he decided to step down before that happened. And he got lucky that steel decided to step down, otherwise Liquid would've probably still done just as well with steel and they would have with taco. If steel never left Liquid, Taco would probably be playing for LG or Sharks right now.

+1000000000 Why do people think Liquid started to win once they kicked Taco? I mean they literally won the next tournament they played versus Astralis. Dudes like Nitro, Xypnx, ChrisJ etc show that you don't need to be low tier to play support. This narrative from guys like Styko and Taco while kind of brilliant is utter bullshit.
2019-10-10 01:01
Comparing Xyp9x to Nitr0 and ChrisJ XD Xyp is on another level

They all play support on their teams. Nitro is more flexible on some maps but in a vacuum they are similar players.
2019-10-10 01:04
Xy is like peak Taco (he was good 2015/2016) but has played like the for years

I'm not saying Xyp isn't the best of the three bro. I'm saying they all play similar roles and all at a higher level then Taco.
2019-10-10 01:06
Xyp role is a little bit different than Taco. Xyp use to play more similar coldzera's role(in LG,SK,MIBR) when he's in T side, cause Xyp is a clutcher like Cold. As CT he plays the same role as Taco. Just to complement, Gla1ve plays Taco role while T in some rounds when he goes first to EF the bombsite and do healthy economy to drop etc
2019-10-10 01:29
True that Xyp9x is best supp. His qualities to be a support player are best. Never seen any support player having those qualities. He set-ups his team, last guy in with insane clutch rate game sens to take the 1vx battles with out doing some hectic decisions. I can't call no other player who is close to his role. STYKO had some small flashes of that, but he was inconsistent. If STYKO got more time in tier 1 teams and get some guidance in his roll, maybe he could have been something. TACO did some great stuff when moved back to mibr. He even top fraged few games, but sadly he couldn't hold his consistency.
2019-10-10 01:19
Taco to be considered good as he was in 2016, he needs to create consistency. Thus Mibr need it more than never
2019-10-10 01:30
Tbh, I was one of the guys who thought Liquid would instantly get MUCH better with the replacement of TACO. I expected alot more from Stewie but tbh, he hasnt been much better than TACO @ Liquid. Difference is Liquid got on a good run and their core (Elige, NAF, Twistzz) were firing on all cylinders. Thats what won them titles

You don't think having an all English speaking team and a player who can clutch and is probably right at home as a third or fourth option when needed had anything to do with that? 1.06 rating on your fourth or fifth best player is pretty damn good. It certainly means your team is running through most others.
2019-10-10 01:08
Sure, obviously that also mattered but TACOs english isnt that bad TBH.

It's not but whenever I watched 2018 Liquid Taco never looked like he was having a good time or being talkative. Whereas in SK and MIBR he's one of the talkative ones. Plus while Stewie's fragging may disappoint you on a personal level it is better then Taco's by basically any measure.

team needs someone to play the bitch role and have less than optimal strats. the problem is that most people will take the mental toll and start aiming like shit or making braindead decisions because of it. xyp plays the bitch role but still has ridiculously good decision making to win impactful duels or clutches TACO/Styko/deadfox/etc make shit decisions and dont aim well. deadfox used to be great but i guess his time as a support fucked him up

Support, so funny. I can understand in game leaders not super fragging because their brains are always having to think about the whole team and not just themselves. Support. yeah! No such role. When I have a bad game I just say I was playing the support role. Works everytime.
