you can only replace players if you have a better option available
AmaNEk is playing good, so of course people would attack you.
SANJI does usually play with a disadvantage though. As many have said, he is like a bank to VP. But of course every player deserves criticism when he plays poorly.
i love when players completely whiff and people defend them because of their roles like that has something to do with them missing 2 clips in the back
You're kinda right about this. The point is that, many people have animosity bottled up inside them for the support players, who aren't the top fraggers of their team. One day when they perform really bad, all the frustration comes out at once and some HLTV users take it too far, and that does sometimes expose their level of understanding of the game.
Hampus said he believed amanek to be the best player in g2 atm.
ofc he whiffs with the awp (since he is not a dedicated awper), but he is good with other weapons and overall a very good player, g2 just need an awper so -jackz +awper
95% people here dont even watch matches only highlights so dont expect people to actually have a reliable opinion
Some players like SANJI and AmaNEk are really important for their teams. SANJI does a lot for the team and to the other players (YEKINDAR, Jame and buster) in order so they can shine.
And we already saw what happened when G2 tried out JaCkz instead of AmaNEk. His impact in the team is extremely big.
Edit: I'd still like to point out that fair criticism is fine and whiffs are obviously something that the role doesn't play a part in, but those happen to everyone, be it SANJI or s1mple.
+1, never really saw rpk doing anything insane in vitality, he didn't even drop weapons, only support work he did was playing on banana in Tside on inferno and B-anchors on 2 maps. Way too overrated player
idk, most support players are required to have impact. your game can't only be throwing god like flashs and spot on smokes. It might help but at high tier at least 3 players have to be performing to have a chance and if we exclude igl form that responsability than that means one of the supports has to frag like a star or be consistent enough.
Any player deserves criticism if they play poorly. Not after a single map, but if their form has dropped over a few matches. HLTV has a problem of serious short term memory loss though. 1 bad game and the site is filled with "X is bot" threads.
Amanek isn't bad, he's just poorly utilized on some maps though. If they're going to give him the AWP they need to stop using him in play making positions that his success or failure will make or break a round. Watching him suffer on Vertigo CT side wasn't great. People picking on his whiffing isn't a problem though. He had shocking aim on Vertigo.
Rush is a true support so criticism for him is always tough. He's one of the few top tier 100% supports. Sanji is like that too.
