both insane superteam talent, decent igl lead by talent turned coach. except elige, naf, twistzz, and grim > niko, guardian, rain, olof. they will instant #1 and reach major final, and unlike faze they win major. elige top 1 2021. thoughts?
the only way liquid can win a major is with an EU / SA carry
all of their success at majors has been due to help from outside na
semi-final @ mlg columbus 2016 (because of s1mple)
final @ cologne 2016 (because of s1mple)
semi-final @ faceit major 2018 (because of taco)
i agree with the title of your post but i dont agree with the rest
they'll probably dominate the first few events until thye start getting worse and worse, then they'll change a player and the cycle repeats
just like faze
firepower wise its undoubtedly an upgrade but i'm not sure about the tactical aspect, as they kicked their IGL. Liquid has never been a very structured team and in worst case this move could end in complete chaos on their side
IDK why people don't think Stewie can be as good or better than nitr0? nitr0 wasn't exactly a hardcore 300 IQ IGL or anything. Multiple people have praised Stewie's ability to read the game, haters aside I dom't get why there's so much skepticism about his IGLing. Liquid looks way more decisive right now than late 2019.
i think stewie just does not seem like a player thats putting in much thought about what he's doing, he's very impulsive, pushing smokes here and there, as a viewer he just does not seem like an IGL type of guy
