I disagree, he surely knows much more than most, most of the actual coaches even. And you can tell it just by listening to him, a clueless man would speak very differently. Thorin deserves more praise for what he's talking about.
He's Supreme Master First Class.
I cannot stand thorin whatsoever. absolute rubbish as a person
Thorin has some takes I agree with, and some takes that are absolutely ridiculous and retarded. And yet all his fanboys who suck his tiny weiner agree with everything he says
+1 thorin is such a pathetic person though
thorin admitted in some video that he can only keep up w the best analysts w his banter. He would never claim to be one of the best analysts so idek why this is a thing
Well, he is more a philosopher. Like, what he said about NiKo is true and you do not have to understand every detail to know that. He took a black-box look at NiKo's career and has made a strong argument that it is highly unlikely that everything is just going against NiKo all the time and thus NiKo is part of the problem.
Dont use reddit problem solved nerd
It all depends on what you expect from an analyst. We all expect/want different things from them.
for me thorin is not really an analyst but more of an esports journalist .. like a tv journalist, he says shit
I see him more as an Analyst of teams and the pro scene than an Analyst of the game and ingame tactics etc. His takes are usually on point when it comes to the pro scene like his video on Niko a little while back for instance or his videos about roster moves and pre/after-match segments are about team 1 vs team 2 and how they match up and what is to be expected which is also usually pretty good. There's a reason why he was spot on on Astralis being one of the best teams before they won Atlanta it's because they were and he could see that even though most of the community, analysts and casters didn't think they could win a major at that time. You can't deny him having a great read on the scene.
Thorin doesn't claim to be an analyst. He calls himself "the esports historian". His job isn't to break down tactics but to document the history of the scene.
Thorin is a good 'general' analyst, and what I mean by that is I think he is a good analyst for the entire game or the effects that game had on the scene, but he isn't top tier at analyzing individual rounds
You can talk shit about him but hes still 100% right what he talks about
He knows his stuff, whether you agree or not.
There really is not even a argument to be made that he is not a top tier csgo analyst. He has been one for years and years are you sure you are not just mad because he critized some player you like? I have found that this is often the case with Thorin haters.
I love Maniac as an analyst.... really wish we saw more of him these events :(
Thorin is based 😤 shut up 😈😋😈😋😈😋
It's actually insane to me that people unironically think bruhmoment000 is some top tier topicstarter. I will admit, he knows nothing of hltv, like all the past roster moves, past lineups, which teams won which tournaments etc.
But let's be real, bruhmoment000 has absolutely 0 knowledge of the actual game itself. IMO a real user is someone like washington, prokda, niko_0_majors_simple_0_majors, dailyschoolshooting, etc.
They have actual hltv knowledge, they can look at a topic, see exactly what goes on in the topic and explain a lot of the thought process behind things and do real analysis of it.
Yeah, bruhmoment000 can be funny cuz he has some low iq takes and is more unfiltered, but if you take him serious as an topicstarter you are probably gold nova MM player. See a lot of smartasses on reddit getting upvoted when unironically saying that bruhmoment000 is a top tier topicstarter.
Depends what you mean by analyst
Hes not an analyst of tactics and pro strats but he does give good analysis of whats happening in the scene
Ok I agree with the idea that Thorin is not the best at breaking down specific plays and rounds but in about everything else he seems extremely knowledgeable
what did u say about ma boi
Who are you to decide who and what a top tier analyst is? Are you top 10,000? No? Then shit the hell up. Do you see any casters or pros calling out thorin for analytical work. No? Then shit the fuck up. He’s not a spunj he doesn’t break down plays like that. But he analyses the game and how it went and that’s just as important
I don't think he claims to be an amazing analyst does he? He says historian because he has a brain that's able to remember things in greater detail than most. He's been around the scene longer than a lot of you have been alive. Although he has never played at a good level, you have to know your shit. You can't go on camera and talk CS infront of hundreds of thousands and wing it. He knows some shit about the game.
Is that you again Thorin?
Thorin might not be the best analysts, but he is unapologetic and he is good at calling out all kinds of bullshit in the CS scene
you need analysts for the game and each round but also for the psychological aspect of CS. "Thorin has absolutely 0 knowledge of the actual game itself" is such an exaggeration that I cant take you seriously, have a good one.
