Their map pool would be shit if they had no awpers
Issue is the current meta basically requires a decent awper being able to work a pick at the start of the round. If they can’t find a awper, I honestly don’t think the team will work out. However I think that NiKo still has potential to be a decent awper (look at ropz for example).
thats the main problem for the m :D you cant win without tier 1 awper who constantly just rekts everyone like device zywoo simple shiro syrson, they are dominating with the awp and I dont think G2 can be contenders with this roster without awper
You simply can't. Their mappool would take a heavy blow because there are maps where you simply cannot go without an AWP. It doesn't matter how good your riflers are. The only maps I think you "could" go without an AWP are Vertigo and Inferno. MAYBE you can include Nuke but that's it. Dust2, Mirage and Train are very reliant on AWPs and so is a big chunk of Overpass.
NiKo is a top5 rifler. I wouldn't have him AWP unless he can be as good with it as he is with rifles like in s1mple's case.
