twistzz interview
Asia LiuCrystal 
what i got was, dude was basically unknowingly being pushed into less significant roles since stewie joined the team and there was a lack of mutual respect ( in his own words ) really does feel bad man he said he wanted to back to his 2018 star player role i know he can do it if a team is willing him to give him that chance

Yeah you don't go from #8 best player in the world during Astralis Era w/o something go unfavoring your way.

yea twistzz was always insane aimer. I actually think liquid will regret this decision and i hope some tier 1 will pick up twistzzz like he is one of the most underrated players just cause he was forced to be entry fragger on liquid... Just check his streams, hes easily still shitting on everyone even in EU FPL
2021-01-26 11:39
He was 12th during the Astralis Era
2021-01-26 11:51
if he joins faze he will problably play a few bitch roles, so ... idk which team would give what he wants

dont think that he'll leave mouz too, but would be a great fit! cold - support the entry as he did with TACO back in 2016/17 twistzz - star rifler broky - awper rain - entry karrigan - igl

Yes, itºs a reason, but if dexter wal already in europe, he would probably be playing and karrigan would have a lot of freedom. For me mouse looks a very nice org, I doubt that they would be so ass and doesnºt give freedom to karrigan. But I could be wrong
2021-01-26 12:17

I guess since Renegades are in the Kato play-in, dexter probably will be in Europe if aussie government doesnt change anything. And yeah, mouz would probably let karrigan go before contract expires, but you never know how orgs approach these types of situations and what teams are interested in karrigan.
2021-01-26 19:14
the way they are playing now kinda feels he is leaving.. no one is pumped, no smiles and no aggression as we saw when they played last few series in 2020. I guess karrigan leaving is pretty done deal and they are just playing with no pressure.

karrigan and rain will play shit roles probably

i don't think so
2021-01-26 03:12
if this was part of the reason for him and liquid parting ways i don't think he would willingly join another team to do the same.. i hope not at least. he's too good

He will play a bit bitch roles, but at the same time be sort of a star. Similarly to Krimz in Fnatic, like it was early days when Stewie joined
2021-01-26 11:34
No he won't, if anyone is gonna play bitch roles in Faze it will be karrigan (when he joins).

"Disrespectful" Bruh you can't make 4 players on your team the star players lol. Someone else has to step down and twistzz was him. Sure getting grim wasn't the best idea, but most of thaat was prob from the GM. Sure he's "bad" or at least his stats are, but I mean expected from a hard entry. Really the only thing you can say he was bad at is calling, but it's getting better with FalleN

the 2019 player break really sent him in a downward spiral, I'm not checking the stats but based on the eye test the single player who truly continued the pre player break form was elige, naf was still good but pre player break he was easily top 5 while post player break he was barely top 20, stew and nitr0 were borderline top 20 but post player break not even close twistzz pre player break was also borderline top 5-7 but post player break barely top 20 truly unfortunate for liquid

no he didnt mention anything between him and stewie just that there seemed to be a gloomy environment and a lack of mutual respect in the team itself ( not because of a specific person ) he mentioned stewie as the time after stewie joined he was getting boxed into a specific role where he had to care more about flashes and smokes and he didnt even realize it at first how much freedom he was losing
2021-01-26 02:58
Hope he joins faze with karrigan. Would instantly be a top5 team.

he didnt mention a specific time period and it was quite clear he wants a good team environment and kept bringing up astralis as an example where players really care about each other and its pretty clear if you are being boxed in a role where you have to constantly think about nades and flanks, it will take a toll on you

how about you watch the whole thing? twistzz role was to throw smokes and flashes and maybe watch flanks for executes not a role you give an aimer and not a role where you can zone in to the shooting aspect of the game baiting stewie and trading him was not his role at all; it was someone else's

Flair checks out. I watched a while ago, but Stewie used to let him bait him and Twistzz never did much with it. Stewie's been taking flack from the community for bad performances, it does kinda sting to let someone bait you and they never do anything with it while you're taking flack for your performance.

no...? elige is the one next to stewie trading him usually besides, twistzz was not always a support player as he himself said, he was kinda slowly caged into that role throughout 2019 without realizing it before that he used to be able to go aggressive when he wanted to and he clearly said he WANTS to be let to do more than he was in Liquid lately its different from a case of baiting to make the game easier for you and yeah kudos to stewie for offering himself up as bait but i dont see him having much impact in a more demanding role

"and yeah kudos to stewie for offering himself up as bait but i dont see him having much impact in a more demanding role" He used to be a star player or close? Where were you looking? lol. And what I said is literally true, just go look at old VODs, especially on Overpass. This is literally what they did. Saying "no...?" doesn't change what's true and what's not. You can make an argument that since Liquid has the switched roles around that Twistzz has done his job well, but I'm not gonna sit here and argue about reality with you...

stewie playing star role in Liquid would benefit the team in what way? im not talking about previous rosters in liquid, he had impact as a bait but it was also the best way for him to have impact letting elige trade you cause you know he does it efficiently and consistently and i dont know if twistzz has done his job well realistically i like the player for his extreme mechanical skill and i do think he has shortcomings beyond that but he has never been much of a baiter as in someone who plays with the intent of baiting if he was set up to play in a way that makes you think he's a baiter, fair play to you but the only real "bait" setup in liquid was the stew-elige entry duo imo
2021-01-26 05:41
EliGE was "baiting" him since stew was first entry and EliGE mopped up.

You new to the game? Twistzz was support not 2nd entry like 2018. Stewie was baited for someone else not twistzz, Twistzz was the one throwing flashes so that enemy is blind and stewie doesn't die. If anything, Twistzz was the one setting nades for stewie. And are we not gonna talk about ct side positions at all? I guess no one here watched demos

Every support sucks, that's their role. If you were ever the last player to enter a site you would know. Either your team already killed everyone and farmed stats or they all died and you're in an impossible clutch. It's hard to perform in that kinda situation. Also, 3k is decent but not enough xD

When you realise that even entry fragger is a role which has better chances to frag than support, that will be the start. As for me, I have more than you, that's all you need to know. And I have watched even more games than I have played. Might be a shit player but I think I am a good analyst.

Dude I've also watched more than I've played as well and I'm actually good (your words tbf, no offense). Why is your opinion worth more than mine? There are ways to shine as a support, look at Xyp9x. He just didn't do well in it on any measure. Twistzz is supposed to be the clutch player.
2021-01-26 07:10
1 reply
You have a mechanically and aim wise skilled player. Would you put him in support? And imagine you're playing with noob teammates like me, would you be happy playing support and setting us up? It's a waste of talent tbh. You don't just give roles without thinking who is better suited for what and that's what liquid did. As for Twistzz he did clutch. When he could but u could see him saving most of the times cause the team made a call to save. If you do all that to a top10 player in the world and expect him to play as usual, idk what to say. Taking your example, imagine if device was support and xyp9x star player. Would you like that? Cause that's what liquid did with Twistzz. As for ur opinion, if you make a comment like #29 ofcourse it's gonna be valued less, cause you never saw everything I typed above and what's wrong with liquid setup. nitr0 could've been that support and igl but well, they kicked him and Twistzz got the short end of the stick
2021-01-26 07:38
he joined and suddenly they went from always being second place to winning the grand slam so.... twistzz should be thankful for that. same goes boosting cloud9 from being a shit team that never made it out of groups with clown shroud to winning a major.

Flukes happen, short term results prove nothing. And Liquid wasn't able to maintain it in longer period of time. I used to be a liquid fan back then, the consistent number 2 is being downplayed but everyone was getting thrashed by Astralis and Liquid was the only one who stood a chance. Thanks to Zews as the coach utilizing the star players. Then Astralis ran out of gas and that's the only reason Liquid achieved something at the end of the year, not because of stewie offering tactically something invaluable xD And you can see the starting of next year when Liquid got beat around by random teams and lost their position as the 2nd best team in the world. Soon, Covid came along and then it got even worse when Liquid couldn't even maintain to be the best or even the 2nd best team in NA. Getting beaten over and over by Furia and occasionally by EG? Lol. But well, if you believe in 1 fluke over year long 2md best team. It's your opinion, a stupid one but you're entitled to it.

for twistzz and liquid part : stew joined twistzz started losing freedom slowly without realizing had to play more for helping others rather than being free to do what he wanted performance and motivation dropped general lack of synergy and respect within team was informed he will be cut in mid 2020 atmosphere was gloomy and tense even in practice he decided it had to be done too decided to announce it by his own mouth to spare speculation wants a team with synergy and bonding ( mentioned astralis a lot ) wants to play more like his 2018 self ( much more freedom )

waahh waahhh i don't get to play a "star role" so i lost all my motivation and played so bad. what the fuck do you want to have 4 star players??? Elige and Naf already doing that all he had to do was throw a smoke & flashes while stew had to take all the shitty roles that nobody wants to take "IGL, Entry" and this fucking guy loses motivation cuz he cant play a star role. Good fucking riddance then this is a TEAM game not a fucking "ITS ABOUT ME!! IT SHOULD BE!! ME ME ME IM THE STAR PLAYER" fuck outta here you had 1 role and you still played like shit. You don't fucking lose your aim from throwing flashes and smokes to help the team. BLAME yourself for underperforming and never tried to get better.

Faze and OG would be the best choices for him for very different reasons. Faze best short term, OG best long term (assuming OG keep a strong IGL in the team). I could better but I don't have time now sorry.

1.Twistzz multiple times when stewie joined the team said he was main support and was giving more space to stewie 2. Liquid roles played out naturally Naf and elige aren’t support players so when grim joined it was left to twistzz and stewie which makes sense I don’t want elige or naf to support they are much more consistent than twistzz 3. If all you got from that interview was everything was stewies fault you have a hard time comprehending what he was saying his role was reduced as said above but grim is playing his spots on ct and at the global finals he did more than fine in fact he was insane for most of the tourney. 4. Lastly twistzz is a great player and liquid and twistzz will both benefit from splitting but hltv idiots love to blame stewie for everyone who gets kicked from tl when if that’s the case he wouldn’t be on tl they are a team and responsibility relies on the whole team not just stewie

But but but I'm an HLTV braindead poster! I need to keep up with the trend of only caring about stats! and stewies stats are so bad! he only has to IGL and entry and mid calls and given all the shitty roles! it's not that hard! It's all about stats! everything bad that happens to TL is his fault! Nitr0 losing motivation and underperforming was stew's fault! twistzzz underperforming and not bother improving was stew's fault too! every game they lose is stew's fault! when elige and naf doesn't show up in games its because of stew! it's HIS FAULT! Logic of the clowns here on HLTV. Shit aint even funny anymore it's just sad at this point.
2021-01-26 14:35
He´s gonna be the star player in faze
2021-01-26 15:10
You can't just blame this on Stewie since every player on the team except for him was a star player - Grim, Elige, NAF, Twistzz... all insane riflers. Three of them were top 10 players in 2019 and Grim has the potential to be up there in 2021. You have 4 players who can be star players, but the way roles work in CS doesn't allow for all of them to play what roles they want to. Plain and simple. However Twistzz suggested that he wanted to try being a main AWPer for the team which was an interesting idea and I wouldn't be against that.
