Fighter was actually really good at the game. He was pretty toxic though iirc. As for Aceu, I don't think he was even the worst player on Eunited at the time of his benching. Sure, he wasn't a tier 1 awper "the next hope of NA" but he was not bad. Good enough to deserve his spot on a tier 2 NA team imo.
Regardless, glad he moved over to apex anyway. As you said, why be the butt end of a joke in NA semi-pro when you could be arguably the best player in the game in apex. It's not even just his aim his movement is absolutely nuts I have so much respect for him to go out of his comfort zone (cs) and move to apex. He hit the ground running and in no time was considered one of the best. I like that dedication
