They literally kept him on the bench and tried to sell him for 700,000. They definitely do not want him

Yep according to Thooorin and Richard Lewis Astralis wanted 700k for him.

Ah sorry my bad because Device (AN AWPER) really effects Bubzkji being at astralis. The moment Astralis find an AWP Bubzkji back to the bench again. Bubzkji is given his shot, he is getting Dupreeh's position and what has he done with it nothing? Funnily enough Dupreeh on the AWP is out performing Bubz in his main role. Also who said they tried to sell him after 6 man rosters were disallowed? You forget that Bubzkji was actually picked up after Es3tag and further more they went on to sign Snappi and Jugi. They just havent managed to shake Bubzkji yet. The moment Es3tag was offered 500k he was soon gone from Astralis. Also to add to my point Jugi played more games in the time he was on Astralis than Bubzkji did until recently and he was gone sooooo fast.
2021-06-12 17:38
"tried to sell him". If another org asks Astralis how much they want for Bubzkji it's not exactly "Astralis trying to sell him" is it now? Them putting a high buy-out on him is honestly more a sign of them wanting to keep him rather than just getting rid of him quickly

So naming a price isnt trying to sell a player. If I have something and dont want to sell it I say "Sorry but ... is not for sale". If you say I want so much for a player that is trying to sell a player. You think Astralis genuinely give a fuck about Bubzkji? He has played a total of 41 maps for Astralis in 10 months. 24 of those maps btw have been in the past 2 months since dev1ce left. So in 8 months he played 18 maps. Wow Astralis really wanted him. Jugi played 15 maps in less than 1 month whilst on Astralis ffs. Do the research Thooorin even spoke about how Astralis managed to buyout Bubzkji really cheap because Mad Lions fucked up in the contracts not expecting the team to break out so fast. Astralis saw it as a quick way to buy a player and sell for more

That doesn't make any sense considering every player has a buy-out. If another org or agent approach them and they refuse to inform them about his buy-out they are literally breaching their contract lol. Bubzkji didnt play more games for astralis before device left cause they had 5 better players available. They gave him the chance even ahead of es3tag originally but quickly found out that es3tag was way better. Not surprisingly though as bubzkji was mainly playing lower tier opponents and were never even in his Mad Lions days an established t1 player. If i wanted an objective level headed take on Astralis, Thorin would be the last person i would ask. Also, you do realise Mad Lions had benched bubzkji before Astralis bought him out right? they were no interested in keeping him. All this "they just picked him up to sell him" is just a narrative pushed by people who literally hates the org such as Thorin. If Astralis wanted to sell him further they would have given him way more play-time as no org is gonna be interested in a benched player who they don't know the form of.

1. Es3tag better than Bubz therefore Astralis wouldnt play bubz. So what you mean is they just dont try and sell a player that is on salary and isnt good enough to be a starter so is just draining money for nothing. 2. Thooorin is definitely a level headed objective person but I know all i need to know about you because you are butt hurt therefore thooorin knows nothing. 3. "It's unclear what the reason for Bubzkji's benching is. However it is unlikely to be performance-based as the 21-year-old has averaged a 1.17 rating as the team's highest-rated player over the course of the last three months" Therefore Bubzkji probably told them he wanted to leave and they didnt wanna continue with a roster that wouldnt stick

1. It's pretty common to let the worst player sit on the bench. Astralis tried to implement bubzkji in several tourneys even when device was still there, but he underperformed massively almost every time. If you think they just wanted him to sit on the bench until he got sold, why even play him at all? 2. Thorin is the guy that cried for months about device, lowering himself to personal insults because of one very calm reply from device which eventually ended up costing him the job at blast. He is by no means level headed or objective, especially when it comes to org that he has a hate boner for such as Astralis and TSM. 3. 1.17 rating, where did u get that number from? His average rating in 2021 is 0.96. Besides that his ratings in last years events for Astralis have been: IEM global challenge 2020: 0.68 (in an event Astralis won) Blast premier falls 2020: 0.99 (in an event where Astralis reached the final) DH master winter 2020: 0.98 (in an event Astralis won) EPL s12: 0.93 (in an event Astralis won) ESL one cologne: 1.03 It's really not that big of a mystery why he havent played more

1. What teams sit players on the bench without the intention of selling them? Its just poor business like yeh let me pay a person to do literally nothing for my business lmao 2. Idk why Thooorin dislikes Device but I heard coldzera made him cry in the club after confronting him so sounds like device upsets more than just thooorin. Also keep in mind thooorin dislikes Device and Niko but never brings personal feelings into his judgement of them as players. Also TSM and Astralis are bad orgs. TSM almost ruined the career of a player and had massive conflict of interest between DoubleLift (At the time was a Liquid player and his GF Leena was a manager at TSM). Astralis were caught not paying players, pushing for salary cuts if they wanted to sign players ect. 3. 1.17 rating was during his time at mad lions. He most likely was benched after saying he wanted to leave. 4. "It's really not that big of a mystery why he havent played more" Its pretty obvious... Astralis wanted to sell him, device left and they were stuck with 4 players so brought him as a 5th. If you genuinely believe Dupreeh is gonna main awp when he is just below average at it and pretty fucking good at entry but decides he doesnt want to be good anymore so a random danish kid can play his role but way worse then youre lets just say deluded

1. What team is willing to buy a player sitting on the bench with no clue of his form? Oh yeah let me just spend a shit ton of money for this guy who can't make it in a team. 2. Funny how coldzera only had the guts to say that in a brazilian interview and when device confronted him about that calling him a liar he just backed down. Don't see a world where a 1.6 meter tall midget can make any1 cry tbh. On the other hand we have first hand evidence of Device making Thorin cry on twitter for weeks which even got him fired from blast. TSM "almost ruined the career of a player" how exactly? You dont even know you're just parroting Thorins takes lmfao. And for the record the temporary 30% salery cut wasnt forced, hence why only few of the players agreed to take it. However, ALL staff and managers (you know the supposedly bad guys according to Thorin) took the pay-cut, funny how he never mentions that tho ^^ You know who else got fined for paying their players late? cloud9 in LCS last year. You know who has a history of treating their players like shit? coL and Jason Lake. Yet Thorin doesn't really talk about that since he's on "good" terms with their managers. 3. Yes 1.17 was during his time with Mad Lions, the ratings i linked which are obivously horrible was during his time with Astralis. Again, it's not hard to see why he was benched. 4. You keep pushing this narrative of them wanting to sell him as if other orgs are brainless enough to just buy a player with trash ratings who were stuck on the bench. The current setup with dupreeh awp'ing is for sure temporary, but that doesn't mean there isnt room for both bubzkji and dupreeh. They tried to play him in Xyp9x roles a bunch of times, yet he failed every time hence why he was stuck on the bench. Secondly the price tag of bubzkji is according to your idol Thorin higher than es3tags was, if they just wanted to get rid of him then upping the price to the extreme makes even less sense. But it's pretty clear that you're just a brainwashed Thorin sperg, i mean you're literally just copying his take about anything without giving it a thought yourself.

My take on these moves Bubzkji might get benched but thats not a shocker its really obvious. Since the start Astralis have played him and just used him as a bench warmer incase they need a sub. He was never as good as Dupreeh so just obvious he wasnt gonna be a starter. Poizon has been underwhelming on the AWP. If you see his stats it doesnt say much but using the eye test he has little presence on the map with the awp just picking the easy awp kills and then rifle kills. Doesnt really offer alot to Col right now. Rush does all the bitch work for Col. Sacrifices himself alot. If Col kick him they better have a good support lined up because they lose alot and cause others to suffer. Jks doesnt really make sense he hasnt been good but hasnt been overly bad. It would make sense to allow him to lurk more and force BlameF to play a more standard IGL playstyle. LNZ should just be swapped back for ZTR. He offers more firepower but you lose the supportive element putting more pressure on the other 4. Fallen honestly dont see the point of him on Liquid. He isnt the IGL and as an awper isnt very influential at all Emi actually looking at individual games he is doing an amazing job. FPX have no right to be beating G2, BIG, Col and Astralis. Gratis ive been saying is single handedly the worst AWP to ever have played in the tier 1 scene of counter strike. He needed to be benched whilst they were still on Renegades ffs. However that team is too obsessed with friendship. Liazz is a pretty good piece to have I wouldnt remove him personally. He can change roles quite easily and thats a good person to have especially as he is fairly young Friberg makes sense he is the weakest player on DIG so I could see this happening but cant imagine who would replace him. Needs to be someone with experience or theres too much on forest in that department Golden makes no sense. He is a successful IGL but right now Fnatic lack firepower. Cant imagine them benching Golden with no IGL in the swedish scene available. JW is below average not even awping anymore makes 0 sense that he hasnt been benched already. Rain and Karrigan enjoy playing together and Rain does all the bitch roles if needed so cant see Karrigan would give him up.

Dont get me wrong Rush is fucking awful but thats his entire job. He is literally on Col to be awful so the others can be good. K0nfig without Rush would be forced into hard entry like yeh he has the best raw aim in CSGO arguably but who cares if he has to clear literally every angle and still probably be double peaked. Yeh really gonna get usage out of him then
2021-06-12 13:15
+1 But FPX should beat BIG Also Friberg is IGL for Dig so I'd rather keep LEKRO playing well as he is, since I don't think there are many better IGLs for them to get Also Faze would be better to get rid of rain since whatever they are doing now ain't working

I am pretty sure that Col's performance lies in the hands of blameF, in my opinion he takes too much space away from his teammates. Just think about it. Almost every current IGL either tries to make space for his teammates by entry fragging/going for timing plays by his intuition to get the opening kill and make a 5v4 or when he gets 2-3 kills at best a 4v3/4v2 for his team or a mid round lurk play (hampus is a good example, boomich, glaive, nafany in mid rounds, apex). Basically the IGLs are trying to make good impact early or in the mid round before a post plant happens but with blame he seems to be the last guy nonetheless either in post plants or just in general always last alive "to clutch" his teammates say, while he is partially succesful in it, it is highly critical from a team standpoint. In my opinion he should set his team up more so that players like poizon as the awper (supposedly the star of the team) and k0nfig as their entry can open up bombsite easier. Also blameF is complexitys highest rated player as the IGL, does that make sense? do we have any other team around in the top30 where the IGL is the best player? To me it just seems that blame utilizies himself with his teammates to make him perform and not the other way around.

Agree with everything you said. Blame should give more space to JKS poizon and K0nfig. They are way better in terms of impact when they deliver compared to when Blame delivers.

You are making way too many bad assumptions. Also Honda has A SHIT TON OF POTENTIAL. Especially for someone who got triple aces on his DEBUT match against G2. That's not something to scoff at. He's a great player, the guy just started playing tier 1 CSGO and Furia are in camp right now training him. Give him more time since he really haven't played much at all yet he already got 3 aces. I see Fallen getting kicked and replaced with Junior. He would do MUCH better in TL than he did in Furia(he only did bad there because communication).

Don't get me wrong, Sanji is nice dude, playing for the team with shit guns but he is hard botomfragging too often. There are players who can keep good numbers while playing support. Magixx and Fl1t Or they can remove Buster or Qikert and take Mir/Forester/Lolipop instead
