G2 internal issues?
 | 
France DELUSIONAL_GAMERS2_FAN 
(keep in mind that i am just overanalyzing, but this still can be true) I was watching kennyS stream the past few days, and he seemed a lot happier than he was before he was benched, granted, I dont actually know, but he does look a lot happier. But there was a few things that he said that I found a bit worrying. He said if he was ever called back from the bench the way jackz did, he would not want to go back, and "it is not what both parts want", which I thought was strange because it always seemed like he and the rest of the team were good friends, and its strange that all of the sudden he doesn't want to play with that team anymore. First of all the move seems VERY rushed, bringing jackz back in and moving NiKo to hybrid player, I highly doubt it was something that was well planned, it seems like a very recent decision, and since nexa said on HLTV confirmed that they wanted to make the team with NiKo and kennys work, and it will take multiple months, it would not make any sense for him to bench kenny almost right after, replace him with JaCkz and move NiKo to awp/rifle hybrid. I also feel like kenny might have requested to be benched, or at least pressured G2 into benching him, due to internal problems. Internal issues isnt far fetched at all either, the entire team always looked dead and very miserable when they show up on camera during games, and malek seem to be more and more frustrated with the team at all, and I dont think kenny would like to play in this kind of team environment. I dont think JaCkz being benched a few months ago helps either. It seems like hes unhappy with his roles on the team (being a support player rather than a star player), and he made multiple remarks on stream about it. One example is inn one of his faceit games he asked his teammate if he should smoke con for him, and that teammate said something along the lines of "kennys support player", and kenny responded with "unfortunately I am stuck with it" Also regarding if NiKo had any say in benching him, he said that he does not care. He said hes very burnt out which is to be expected, and that he wants to look for new opportunities. I personally hope that kenny would find a new team that has a structure where he can shine and be a star player rather than a support player with little freedom like the way he is on G2, I am sure that is what he wants too. I would not want kenny to go play in G2 again, at least not with this core. He has been statistically the best support player for the past few months, but he just should not be utilized that way.

2021-03-09 08:48
and where do can you back up the information that NiKo alone benched kenny? can you please send me any proof of that? i can atleast backup proof that NiKo had little to no say in the benching of kenny. in this tweet G2 states that the decision was taken by the and I quote "The decision was taken by the G2 SUPPORT staff and MANAGEMENT" so where do you find that NiKo alone just said "lets kick this guy he bot" please tell you. NiKo is not a scum as you say when he had little to no say in it. Of course G2 staff talked to the players but all in all it was the G2 staff and Managements decision, not NiKo. tweet: twitter.com/G2esports/status/13675553555..

damn bro you dont look that smart dont you, just because g2 stated on twitter that it was decision made by their staff and management, doesnt have to mean that players werent involved or niko alone. They are not that fucking dumb to write "hey guys fucking niko benched kennys, it was not us"

i never said that players weren't involved i said that G2 staff also talked to the players to hear what they had to say, but all in all it was the G2 staff and management decision wich wasn't an easy decision to make but its what needs to happen. Kennys has been underperforming hard for a long time when he have had lots of freedom. and underperforming as an AWPer will lose you many rounds if your awper miss easy shots in the scene we have now. You are probably right that they wouldn't say that "niko benched kenny" most likely because it isn't true at all.

- Aggressive behavior on CAMs, not just on tournament cams, but stream. - Players speaking out on stream - always same pattern, joins a team, conflict happens, a long standing member "suddenly" leaves. You are too fanboy so I will stop discussion here.

- Every player rages. Device punched his monitor and no one calls him a toxic teammate - Which players have spoken out on stream? It's not really about being a fanboy it's more about you just making claims about someone you have no actual interaction with. You watch him play csgo on the internet. That does not make you an expert enough to make these assumptions about a player's character

I think it’s weird that On hltv confirmed nexa said that jacksz English wasn’t improving fast at all and that was a problem because he had an important role in the team so you need to be able to communicate well. I also think it’s rushed because of that, it feels like they needed some fast.

Really good opinion. It really looks weird. When you look at this video: youtube.com/watch?v=Rpjuk52056c (at the time 1:16) they looked like they were really good friends. At this first bootcamp I was watching NiKo streams a lot, and they looked like really good friends. It feels like something happen during Katowice. Look, Kenny was they third best player in Katowice by stats. I know you want more from primary AWPer, but he wasnt playing that bad he would need tio be benched. It really looks he was unhappy with his role and he benched himself. Because lets be honest, nexa wasnt using him right. He was using him as a supportive AWPer to just hold angles and flash for teammates. But this is not kenny´s style.

then its just kenny was not happy with his roles and positions
2021-03-09 08:49
All speculation, the simplest answer is that kennyS was underperforming and having zero impact as an AWPer despite a lot of freedom, they kicked him and that's it, this is elite level competition at the end of it, not a charity, all of you seem to think kennyS should be treated differently than other people because he is that kind person who easily gets his feelings hurt.

yea it would seem like that, but hunter and NiKo being the star players is what they decided to go for so
2021-03-09 10:59
But that role change came with NiKo entering the team to be the star player, but before that, KennyS was missing shots and doing bad performances since Online era so a change was needed. He needed to go more into a Dev1ce playstyle holding more instead than taking agressive duels, because he's not on his prime anymore and I was seeing some improvements on the last games (even if the scoreboard didn't show that).

LoL ... - so what you are saying is playing passive isn’t as easy as it might Seem ??? Overall G2 was a better team without Niko than with really ... Which player is next to be “benched”, because of Nikos Ego ?
2021-03-09 11:17
1 reply
If you wanted to reply me, I'm not saying Dev1ce playstyle is easier, but it requires a different gamestyle where gamesense and knowing when to do certain things or play more for the team buying time and holding places, is more important than raw and mechanical skills per se (not saying Dev1ce doesn't have them) you're impactful but on a different way so the team doesn't go behind you like S1mple, you're on the base level helping everyone. Which is way better, and that's why Astralis is succesful, because this is a TEAM game and you need to do what's better for the team, not for your stats or your ego.
2021-03-09 11:47
He wasn't playing like that until Niko arrived and they decided to go with Amanek while he's being trash since online era because he had a good form on the last LAN events on 2019-2020, but online is here for an uncertain time so... I know he was always agressive doing flicks here and there, but he miss more shots than he nailed right now, he needs to reinvent himself or he's done. Just like Messi or Cristiano are more passive now because they don't have the physical strength they had 10 years ago, but they are still impactful, if you want to keep playing the same on T1, you end up like Guardian.

You don't have to explain any further. If they had an IQ above the room temperature they wouldn't make such stupid comments about kenny being toxic in the first place.
2021-03-09 09:12
have you even watched the streams? or just the clips people sent you? I've watched all the streams live and I am telling you he did not blame g2 even once for this. He said it was what both parties wanted, and not just g2. Also, idk who said it but he def didn't look like about to cry, if anything he looked really happy to me. Its not just niko anyways, even before he came, kennys was partially support player even then, and you could have seen the stats. Its so fking obvious that roles jad him fuxed over and I am actually quite happy for this, because there is no one at fault here, def not niko as people are saying shit for him for whatever reason

Dont read, but Kennys is suffering another all aim no brain syndrome. He was succesfull when game was developing and nobody was as smart as now with a lot more preparation! remove broken awp and you get skilled player that is easily outbrained by most of the competition. Thats why you succesfull these days with awp! Best players have most impact with awp! Its so much easier to win when you have your best player being awper. Look how huge of a impact Syrson had when they won couple tournaments! He had all those ez kills because he read the game so well and positioned himself flawlesly. What Kennys does? He cant read the game, just hold the angle and hope for the best lol. In my mind, best player should get the best gun like awp. Kennys is not the best player so why he should get awp?

pennyS loves to cry as much as niko loves to kick underperforming teammates, I’m sure the combination of these two things is what we see now

Imo G2 did a very bad move when they benched JaCkz for NiKo, JaCkz was the guy that would sacrifies himself for huNter- to get a 3k, and will not complain about it, he would even bring good vibes to the team and make everyone feel good.

2021-03-09 16:34
He's happier because relieved, no pressure anymore KennyS' level has been an issues for months and months in G2, he's not the impactful player he used to be anymore They had to take care of this anyway On the other hand I'm happy for Kenny, it will be a fresh start for him in another top team. This will also boost his motivation, maybe he wasn't working as much since he has this "star player" role. He's no Apex, you have to be behind him to make him grind aimbot maps ect

Kennys been underperforming for 2 or even 3 years. And he gets benched ( which shouldve happen year ago) then niko gets the blame lol. Nice brain guys

hltv.org/stats/players/7167/kennys?start.. reason he was benched ^ it was probably decided way earlier than it was revealed and it's likely that they all, including Kenny himself, knew about it in advance I'd say the only reason it feels rushed is probably because it is since getting a reliable tier 1 AWPer to fill in the shoes of a legend in a superteam is not easy

I thinkj you are onto something
2021-03-09 16:58
I won't talk about the supposed internal issues since you said you're over analyzing, and because I prefer to give benefit of doubt. Many times we tend to presume that it's due to something negative, when perhaps it's for a good reason. When you say "I also feel like kenny might have requested to be benched" you can be very right, as many pointed to previous personal problems of kennyS. The truth is that people don't think about this and draw generally negative conclusions... kennyS leaving is the right move for both parties. This opens a lot of possibilities for them both. They were attached to each other, now they can freely go.
2021-03-09 17:03
Fucking morons thinking its niko’s fault that kenny has been a complete bot for the last year. Atleast he might be good in valorant

2021-03-09 17:02
I think you're overlooking it... while what you're saying is (partially) correct, it doesn't really work like that. You have to understand that it's not 2015 anymore and that Kenny is very far from being the star player he used to be even if he's in conditions to be a star player, even before Niko Kenny was not #1 in G2.. far from it - if we're going to be objective he was #3. He's still a consistant player and if nothing else he's not going to lose you a game, but he's not going to win it either.. Regarding internal issues I'm not too sure what so say, he's emotional player (nothing against it) and frankly when you're in team with Niko, Hunter and Nexa.. let's just be honest you're not really in position to complain (nothing against mentioned trio above either - going to explain it).. Amanek is someone who's quiet (probably?) and does his job well, Niko is.. Niko - guy has been a top3/top5 player for years and he can win rounds.. expecting a bit of ego is something normal (not good, but it's the way people work..), Hunter is someone who had to hard carry t2/t3 games (before joining G2) for years.. and he grinded A LOT (like past 5+ years in and out of t2/t3 pro scene) and I don't think that he's someone who's going to put pressure on his teammates regarding performance but at the same time you can't expect from him to perform every single game, I do think that he can perform pretty consistantly but I'm expecting from him to have a bad game from time to time... Nexa - idk... can't really discuss someone who I can't analyze.. tldr: Kenny can be a good player in many teams, but G2 is not one of those because it's already filled with star players, and let's be real French people and people from Balkan got... different mentallity (neither one is bad, but seems like they're not compactible...) // I don't really think there's anyone who should be blamed for -kenny move, not kenny, not niko, not g2...

yea thats also a point that i wanted to make, NiKo and hunter take up too much space and resources for him to be a star player (not blaming NiKo and hunter here), so he should find a team where he can be the star

Niko yes, Hunter not really.. I'm not going to explain too much but who watched his pre-g2 games knows what I'm talking about... Kenny... as said, he's a good player but he's not a star.. not someone who can be #1 player in the team at least.. secondary star? Sure.. but primary star who's winning matches on his own? Not anymore.

okay be to be fair tho, and im not just saying this to justify kenny's poor performances, but kenny moved to a more or less supportive role the moment hunter and nexa joined, and the team would be structured around hunter fragging out, while kenny was still more or less a star player, he was becoming more and more of a support

I'm not saying that you're justifyng his poor performance.. and I agree that he was being moved somewhat to a supportive role but at the same time I feel like we have to look in a bigger picture... before Niko joined ( I don't really remember whatever if Nexa and Hunter were in team or not) it was all Amanek show.. with all the memes also going on (Amanek vs amanek about the be benched meme).. and frankly it does feel like we're all overlooking his old glory from 6 years ago... and again - I still have huge respect for Kenny and value him as a player greatly but.. it feels like he has to give up a mantle to new players.. to move away from G2 a bit look at Vitaliy.. you have Shox which was a god earlier (just like Kenny), Apex which was uhh... basically guy who was able to win games on his own from time to time and RPK who used to be one of the best site anchors in the game... and who's running the show? Zywoo and Nivera.. those 3 might be legends of french cs but they realized that they're nowhere near their old form... and it does feel like Kenny should do the same.

ahahaha.... this comment* makes me wonder whatever if you know my steam profile or not... and regarding if only you could... I think the best way to describe me (in mm/faceit matches) is basically something like prime jw/stewie (with all the pushes and shit) and flusha when it comes to gamesense (hitting the timing and stuff)... but at the same time when I have a bad game it's reallly a bad game... (like either 35 20 or 5 25...)
