As much as I really like thorin, he'd be a god awful coach. He has no experience playing in any teams at all and lacks leadership qualities.
Sometimes i see NA users asking why europeans bully them and now i have a thread i can just copy paste and they will understand
I just want spunj to coach rng
dude is pretty knowledgeable of the game, however, if it were to not work out, his journalism career would be chalked. He seems to be a pretty calculated guy, likelihood of a good return on investment would be low, dont think he'd chance it
He need to coach MIBR
But serious, Thoorin isn't an expert in tactical CSGO, he even said that many times
Thorin as coach would be miserable, he's an borderline a***e who's full of himself and struggles to be a part of the room at the analyst desk, how the hell would he be expected to lead other people?
do you really think na's best team would want a gold nova as their coach?
Having been on the same staff as him for extended periods of time, I can say that though he is deeply knowledgeable and produces good content, he constantly clashes with others and takes everything personally.
i do need coaching from a nova 2 0.66 KD in lvl1 faceit that had put navi has number 1 of april 2020
Guy literally knows nothing about video games but i guess he is autistic so people buy his commentary. But does he understand an in depth esports like DOTA? no, he can only fake it with lol and csgo. His analysis is literally "Liquid and instant headshot you and trade. that is why they are the best." omg who could come up with that! but i think he is a legitimate esports commentator
no, he wouldn't be a good couch
thorin lives in an ideal world, not in a real one
gold nova coach, good idea.
His area of specialty is memorizing a bunch of historical trivia, not analyzing the game in any meaningful way.
No offense but you're an idiot if you expected thorin to be the coach and people who think he has anything to offer as a coach are even bigger idiots.
isn't thorin level 1 faceit lol
doubt he has any idea how the game works past the history and statistical side of it
I think he was once offered to be the coach of fnatic in LoL once
moses have experience from the highest level from his time in United5. Thoorin can't hit a target with a negev 2 feet away.
Thoorin also has some personality issues that wouldn't go well with coaching. He is a "historian", despite he doesn't know much of the history. All he has is a great memory that remembers results.
No serious org would recruit Thorin lmao.
People who are not playing the game on decent level can not coach anyone. All that he can do is logically assume some plays/behaviours with no experience to verify if it's possible to do in real game environment. Not to mention that Thorin usually speaks generally about different topics, he never really go into details, which makes me think that's where he lacks knowledge.
i can easily imagine him talking how bad astralis are in timeouts
Thorin would most likely be a horrible coach. Just creating controversy within the team. I can very well imagine him lashing out at staff/players for various reasons etc. I don't think he has much knowledge about the actual game, historical and statistical aspects yes but actual meta or in-game finesse is something he lacks. It's impossible to see the capabilities of players if you don't actually know the requirements of the actual execution.
He got an invite to coach fnatic's LoL team in 2014 but refused because he made more $$ as CS analyst.
No the players dont like him I think (least a lot) so wouldnt get the respect a coach need
Least wont be hired at Astralis xD
It would be so satisfying to see Thorin's face as Liquid's coach after his team has been dominated by Astralis. Especially since we have already fucked his league (FLASHPOINT) and predictions (StarLadder Major 2019 preds etc) over and got him fired from BLAST.
guys, thorin is what 73years old and u say hes bad at csgo? smh..
I dont know if he actually can coach. He can talk about cs and review/analyze matches and players but that of course is not the same as coaching.
Thorin would spend half the time roasting the fuck out of the players.
First of all he is a very bad analyst. I remember once had 0/12 picks wrong live !! I mean , how worse can it be for a supposedly expert.
Aside that he wasnt a good player himself and never played at the highest level possible and if he did sometimes it was in another era entirely.
He lacks experience big time, aside the fact that is a prick and bad analyst. So, no, no and no. !
Thorin is a huge personality in both lol and cs and dota, He is a journalist lolll
hed just cry 24/7 and continue to be a sad ranga
I've never seen him "analyze" any of the games, he can explain why a team lost the game, it's weaknesses etc. but his understanding of the game itself might be lacking. Compare his analysis to ynk's or any other coach to see what i mean.
Thorin would make a great coach, prove me wrong.
An retarded that never played csgo and say anything to stay "relevant"
this is the most overrated """"analyst''''""" in counter strike history
And remembering he was racist with cold and fer at 2017 but deleted the tweets after receiving a lot of death threads
