Liquid will be the next FaZe
 |

Before FaZe dropped Karrigan, their IGL, they had NiKo experimenting IGL since they did not trust Karrigan's calling. After the benching of Karrigan, faze went onto a downslide of Olof's mental health coming into factor, and the poor pickups by the faze csgo org, like NEO, Adren, Bymas(not ready). Now that liquid dropped nitro, their IGL, they could have the same downfall faze has had since they did not make a move to fit them tactically since Stewie2K is now calling for liquid, and we know he is not a great IGL, similarly to NiKo.

My fellow American! It's nice to meet you! 😎🖐 Interesting thoughts, but I think stewie is probably a much better ingame leader than we're giving him credit for or Liquid would not have made this move. In my experience, any good player with the right personality and most importantly WORK ETHIC can make a great ingame leader!

this did not work for faze, NiKo's personality and work ethic works great for IGL but this did not work

I actually don't think he has the right "personality"(INGAME) for it at all. Niko is a true superstar player. It makes no sense to have him ingame leading. He probably felt obligated to take the role since everyone else he's played for in his career has let him down.

It's a good point, Liquid could very well end up a revolving door of the best NA talent. But we'll see, you never know, this good be an interesting move for them. I think it would've been a better idea to get a primary AWP like a cooper or Autimatic (if it were possible) but we'll see!

Yes and people forget that late FaZe with karrigan igling was utter shit, so the change was reasonable.

Nah man it was because the team chemistry was bad since Olof kept having his breaks and was not playing great, that's why when we brought xizt and cromen to sub for him we actually won titles

You can't deny that both xizt and cromen massively overperformed for FaZe in those tourneys which helped a lot.

i kinda agree. i think they will look pretty good the first couple of events and then drastically fall out of the top 10
2020-08-04 09:49
wow people start realizing karrigan is bad in 2020 well better late than never i guess

NA mindset is exactly what liquid are doing, when times are tougher than previous success for NA teams they start bitching and start looking at stats and kick the lower stat player. Rather than work out of current form slump and actually become a champion team like astrlias, yes it's hard work but if you get over it you will be even better, the most successful teams did it even with much worse line ups EG polish VP, but that's too hard for NA culture. The only reason to kick someone is if they do not fit as a personality and I highly doubt nitro was bad for them. But ywah NA brain more firepower equals success amiright? Because that's what the second best line up on paper lacks? Liquid will kick someone else and end up being irrelevant.

nitr0 was getting significantly worse pretty much each quarter in succession, but towards the end, after Stew took over IGL he was looking to be on an upward spiral. I really don't agree with the move at all, I think Grim is an unproven player in the top tier of CS, especially on LAN, but it's not the worst possible move either. I think replacing nitr0 is the least damaging change they can do, other than changing the coach.

Or put hardwork in, it's amazing how many players fragging abilities come back with some confidence. Cutting players is the easy way out.

very wisely said, name checks out I totally agree, this is gonna be the downfall of Liquid unfortunately.
