but liquid with stew won major?
No, they actually won tournaments with stewie2k instead of perpetual 2nd with BOT TACO. Also no team has stayed prime forever besides maybe astralis so I don’t see your point about ruining liquid from the inside
mibr with stewie2k > mibr with taco
Taco (+zews) was a clear improvement over players like jdm, pimp, hiko. But if you are comparing with stewie, liquid accomplished way more with him.
Liquid with Stew:
iBUYPOWER Masters 2019
IEM Sydney 2019
DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019
EPL Season 9
ESL One Cologne 2019
BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles 2019
IEM Chicago 2019
EPL Season 11 NA
Liquid with TACO:
SuperNova CS:GO Malta
No, Liquid with Taco was worse. I am not saying that Stewie is performing adequately (he might be the next to be benched), but he is far better than Taco in almost every aspect.
when i hear liquid i imagine this:
Here it comes.... once again... the first face is adreN; hes gonna hit the ground; theres cold; OH WHAT!!?!?! THE JUMPING DOUBLE FROM COLD!!!!!!! WHAT IS UH GOING ON RIGHT NOW! HOW DOES HE DO THIS!?!?!?!? COLD TO SAVE LUMINOSITY WITH THE AWP PLAY, UNTHINKABLE SCENES THERE ON THE B APARTMENTS! THEY NEEDED A HUGE PLAY, BUT THAT WAS SOMETHING IM NEVER GONNA SEE AGAIN!!!!
What the actual fuck are you talking about.
They literally accomplished more with Stewie on the team than they did with any other roster....
The problem with 2018 Liquid is they tried to play like Astralis and weren't as good as Astralis were at their own playstyle. Not entirely surprising everyone was copying Astralis and no one was as good.
When Stewie came into the team whether it was him or Nitro or Adren or whomever they developed their own playstyle and went on one of the most dominant tournament runs ever and achieved a feat that you can say with pretty much 100% certainty will never be replicated.
There's really no comparison tbh.
With Stewie, the major was the only thing they missed out on xd, they won everything else for a time.
