What happened to this guy? He fell off so hard from being a good fragger in Cloud9. His aim looks like he has zero confidence. I understand that his comms are good and his utilities are good as well, but his aim doesn’t exist at this point. Don’t tell me that he became a support player or got bitch roles at times to entry and die. Even Olof is playing good now in terms of Aim. Even on the CT side, he isn’t doing his job. I never get to see good holds from him on CT side when he needs to step up the most. Opinions?

Then Jason Lake is stupid for keeping him I guess. His role could’ve been taken over by Valde or NBK since so much time

success is 90% ambition and 10% talent he knows that his career has peaked, and that is terrible for performance

obviously not, but at their skill level (top 10 team) there is very little difference between aim besides obvious outliers, it is all confidence and mental in t1. a player wouldnt be in t1 if there aim wasnt proven at some point, forest and jackz prove that age doesnt matter for aim

Yeah that’s my point. I don’t mean to say he’s bad. He’s fulfilling the needs. But RUSH is expected to have more experience and discipline than Interz right? Rush plays too sloppy. Interz checks angles, expects backstabs, pushes, etc. Rush throws utils and then runs like a chicken. That’s my point.

Sloppy play isn't really on the IGL though, they can't micromanage their roleplayers' every move. That being said, poor leadership or a bad game plan will generally affect roleplayers more than stars. This is most obvious in stats, because if they're not supposed to be in positions to frag out even when things go well, then a bad team performance is gonna tank their stats. Poor in game leading will also affect a roleplayers understanding of how their role should even be done. The point of even having roleplayers is to do specific tasks that are necessary to win, but don't necessarily involve getting frags, but if there is no plan (or a plan that isn't very cohesive) for what you should be doing in a round then they're going to look lost. I think this is where Rush is at rn tbh. I think it's pretty obvious to a lot of people that the team has a structural problem. The parts are there to be taking wins against really good teams, but for some reason it's not clicking, and I don't think you can put that squarely on Rush. He's been a very good support at times, and I believe that teams degrade much faster than players, so he can very likely still do a good job. I think the next step is to bring in a better IGL or coach, and of the available options MSL and zews are probably the best options.

"even olof is good now" Olof uses his brains and experience, RUSH isn't on that level in either category

Olof was always good. He’s a legend. But considering he came back from multiple breaks to learn about new metas he missed out is impressive. Plus his aim is so much better from Niko’s time. He’s living the dream again. On the other hand, RUSH being an entry should have a good aim is what I’m saying.

Is his aim really better tho? He's just rekting these new online kids with smart positioning and lurking, he never really out aimed anyone in a proper head to head tbh. But he does look way better with the awp

At the end of the day, it’s about how you get kills. Through experience(outbraining) or out aiming. If you see the recent games or Atleast the first game against NAVI, he outaimed simples awp too. Might have had a good day no doubt, but cmon...he has just come back and is doing way better than half the support players in the scene. If he didn’t do a few important things like cutting off rotations, faking/getting info and then also anchoring sites and getting 2-3 kills on CT, Faze wouldn’t have been in the playoffs. That’s my entire point. RUSH can do the same Atleast through game sense if not aim, but the spark is invisible at this point. No discipline in his game either. Just runs around.
2021-07-12 16:52

Yeah, anchoring u need to be insane with utillity, and aim/experience. Rush really sucky at all of that. Vs heroic, on mirage, i'm p sure olof had the opening kills in all of the 5 rounds they won. He's just so damn smart.
2021-07-12 18:00
i watched some blamef pugs like a month ago where he played with rush and their coach keita, will confirm his aim is not gone in those matches, it's like they magically go away when he plays officials

or then he has more free reign to do what he wants in pugs and in officals he goes back to play support

Yeah but playing for so long in a role, one should be able to expect pushes, backstabs, peeks, etc. Fuck expect. Just use aim and kill Atleast. Support role doesn’t just mean smoke flash and die
2021-07-12 16:35

i also think it's a side effect with him, you know how people call him the "safe pair of hands" and how he doesn't make mistakes often. Maybe it's because he doesnt make plays literally ever
2021-07-17 17:35
He used to be a beast but he is gone for real and he is just 27 yo. I don't get It either
2021-07-12 16:21
hes the support, he doesnt wanna go for 1v1 fights but support his team and make them win duels

I get that his role is support, but it DOES NOT mean you make your aim disappear. Sometimes rush is left to lurk too if you watch CoL games. He never opens a site or takes map control.

only JaCkz and Sanji play the same roles IMO JaCkz is objectively better right now Sanji is probably playing better as well, but VP is doing kinda fine while coL is having a lot of problems unrelated to RUSH

So perfecto doesn’t play support? Interz doesn’t do the same things like RUSH? Sjuush doesn’t either? What is wrong with you

perfecto plays support like jks, playing solo sites etc. But the real shit roles go to boombla who is literally running in first like a maniac every fucking round. interz is playing support too but they also have nafany who is very aggressive and takes a lot of space so its kind between the two of them sjuush I am not too sure but from the games I watched all players on heroic do supportive stuff from time to time, but maybe I am wrong on this
2021-07-12 22:21
jackzz and sanji don't play the same roles
2021-07-12 18:03
his aim is not even bad, he is just playing most trash roles. Its almost impossible to look good while playing these roles. people were shitting on JaCkz but realized now that some of these support players are pretty good individually (shocking)

i kind of agree. i dont think they should make the mistake of just replacing him with the best fragger they can get bc a lot of times those moves dont pan out. But if CoL wants to hit that next level i think he has to go. Though there have also been issues with poizon recently so its not like Rush is the only player who needs to do better but Rush has kinda been a bit of a bot for his entire time in CoL while at least poizon could potentially return to form

and i do think the shit roles thing is kinda real like is till think he could be an alright player iun a different context but as far as CoL is concerned they need to get rid of him

the whole team is playing like shit to be honest apart from k0nfig. Its like with EG, the players that are supposed to carry are not doing enough work (f.e. poizon/Cerq). they can kick the support player but there is a bigger problem in the team right now

Blame is still solid but yeah they have real issues. I do wonder if part of the issue is playstyle bc three of thier five players are underperforming. But nonetheless, i dont think they can be a consistent top five team in the world with RUSH. Imo the easiest path to contention for them would be to try and replace RUSH with somebody who can be amore explosive playmaker. Not necessarily a star but just somebody who can be still be a solider while still coming up with big plays from time to time

They never really recovered from poizons break I feel like. from an outsider perspective I agree with you but I would rather replace jks with an upcoming younger player

yeah i mean its all depending on who is available. I think having somebody who can give the team more pop in RUSH's spot is my personal favorite move bc you dont have to let go of any of your other theoretically more valuable players, but if it turns out its easier to replace jks or poizon with somebody who is more talented in that role i wouldnt be opposed to it. And i know letting poizon go would really hurt but i dont tihnk his ceiling is so high that they cant afford to let him go and him not being able to return to form has killed them
