There’s plenty of people that can’t play professional sports but know more about the sport then even some players. You don’t have to be good at the game to understand it at a high level. Also, thorin knows more about CS in his left nut then you do in your whole body.
Idk if just stoopid or baiting
It is same as the politics. Dont take confidence as competence.
Who cares? His job is not to land shots. Especially in a game like CS where aim is important, it doesn't say anything about how well someone knows the game.
lemme go take a shit and I'll answer
you do realize that plenty of the world's top football coaches never played at a high level themselves? obviously they still know how to kick a football better than thorin can aim, but the point still stands, poor practical skills don't directly imply poor theoretical understanding. besides, thorin's analysis doesn't rely on his in game understanding
who cars? he's really dumb
so this is what it's like to have 0iq
Ofc someone can be incredibly competent in football without playing it himself.
no one knows...hes just edgy thats it, doesnt understand anything about the game
Imagine being a fan of player which thorin rekted
His job isn't to land shots?
It's to report the news and his opinion on it basically. Which he does a fine job of. You know if I can sit over here in NA and like Thorin after him jabbing at my continent for five years nearly before Liquid came along the rest of you can chill out.
The scene would be lesser without him even if he has the 'wrong' opinion at times.
Analyst=Look at stats and rumors. Then makes video on opinions. Apparently his opinions are mostly correct since hes really popular
He's not a pro he prob actually plays csgo once a week if I were tbh
You cant be expert at the game unless ur a global
are you referring to pierre menes lol? he is a good analyst
who cars about a clip 3 years ago
Analysts don't have to be good players
dont talk bad about ma boi
He knows more about the scene than most pro players. This makes him an expert in his own ways. He is not ingame expert, that's a whole other story.
This reminds me of IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) which made a report about global warming with 2500 experts.
Most of them were far from experts, but merely politicians, who, to my best knowledge, know nothing about the real world. All they are capable of is having other people solve problems.
Oh, that report (10 years old or there about) included a lot of real experts in it, but their conclussions, which didn't back up global warming, were let out from the report, while their names still figured.
Global warming / Climate change is about money more than anything else. To believe we are the main culprit of climate change on this planet is very ill informed.
Me and my sidesteps, im out of here.
Who cares about analysis? It's a video game. Just a basic shooter, what theories you look for? He's good for being himself, a funny old man who lights up the desk and makes it interesting to watch. I don't think anybody needs him as an analyst, he's the entertainer.
Why all NA hltv users defending thorin?
Probably since he's been working with CS professionally for like 15 years
You can be an astrophysicist and never go to space. You don't need to be a pro to be an expert. I don't think he's an expert, but what he is, is someone who's watched more CS for longer than some of you have literally been alive. He's seen a lot of CS and knows more than you 100%
Get_right had a great career and he is a shit analyst thoorin had a shit career in pro cs (Because it is non-existant) and he is an amazing journalist and analyst in both lol and cs so what is your point?
