Is one of the best awper in history of counter-strike. The year of 2011 was the best of him, i and we all miss him, he was fucking insane with awp.

youtu.be/gm93yGPvMAM he tried to go pro in valorant and I think he decided the game was not for him and left. I feel sad everytime I think about epic AWP in 1.6 they just couldn't translate well into CSGO(friis markeloff delpan). His clutches were insane too against mtw with 2hp and navi with 1hp lmao. SK was just the perfect team that year. they had f0rest and gtr both in their prime and there's this DELPAN dude just destroying people with AWP LOL. Another awper that I think is criminally underrated is friis, because his success was at the end of cs nobody remembers him :( f0restBambiJQgarN^ youtu.be/S5mOCwkv53w

I agree, and i was a fan of friis i remembre him very well he was the new Sunde but cs 1.6 was in the end, i felt very sad for him.
2021-07-26 03:17
I was thinking about him just the other day because I watched highlights of gtr from 2014 lul
2021-07-26 07:33
That was the year gtr and forest became a couple of backstabbing traitors. Well, the year before, but in December so it might as well be 2011.

Nah, gtr and forest wanted to replace dsn since they thought he was washed up and can't play on the level needed to compete against navi, carn refused to get rid of his boy (and rightfully so, dsn was the heart of that team), so gtr and forest decided to chase glory and move to SK.

How? Of course, it's history and a very long time ago but that will always remain the golden year of SK alongside 2017, of course. :) Just because it was a long time ago doesn't mean it was irrelevant at the time; with that same logic, 2017 is also irrelevant but is obviously much more in recent memory. ^^

yeah no problem. navi was still good but SK.swe was slightly better than them. Don't get me wrong they still manage a couple of wins over SK but overall battle SK won. During those years markeloff feel like he was straying away from the team. That's why he left even though they got silver in the bo5 against nip on strladder in 2013. IN 2012 fnatic with karriganb0b, trace, friis, gux, moddii just destroyed everyone lol

markeloff was much better. NAVI brought him on in 2010 and he completely dominated the scene for the last 3 years of the game. In that short period, he won everything. Including a top1 and a top3. It's a pity what happened to his CSGO career. In 2013 he was very good and NAVI nearly beat the old NIP roster at the SLTV VI finals in a BO5. Later that year, they came second in the Prague Challenge losing to a mix team comprised of NEO, TaZ, OverDrive, KennyS, and aPEX. The team completely broke after that. Markeloff left the team to join Astana Dragons (with Edward) in what was pretty much a career-suicide move. That team didn't last long, Edward returned to NAVI and markeloff moved between Hellraisers and Flipside. For some reason, after Astana Dragons, he completely relinquished the AWP role and slowly went into irrelevancy until his retirement in 2018. Imagine what would've happened if he hadn't left NAVI. If he had stayed and had a good performance then they would've never gotten GuardiaN.

I was watching his interview with Zeus and he told him that he wasn't feeling it anymore on NaVi that's why he left. He also relinquish his awp role because he just plays whatever he feels like according to him. Sounds dishonest for me but that is what he said

There were already signs of him not wanting to AWP even in 1.6 in 2012 like for instance, he gave the role to starix (who was the second awp) on Tuscan. starix was a good second awper but markeloff was miles ahead of everyone else. I think losing that event to a mix team completely broke the team's morale because Edward left with him and ceh9 retired at the end of the year.

2021-07-27 01:42
Delpan was actually better than markeloff in either the summer of 2010 or 2011. If I remember correctly, it was the summer of 2011 but I'm not sure. Delpan hit his peak in that time, he was so good! He would've maybe been top 3 or top 5 in 2010 and 2011's Top 20 list if he maintained that level of performances all over the year with being consistency. It's undeniable that Delpan is one of the best AWPers in CS!

Delpan was a super aggressive awper. He would either give you a 5v4 advantage early on, going for an aggressive pick or put his team in a 4v5 deficit. When he was replaced by trace in SK was because his form and success rate dipped. However SK realised that Delpan was a playmaker and his teammates often played off his aggressive moves. When trace came on board who was statistically a higher rated player SK realised they had too many passive players and lost that person who opens things up for guys like f0rest and gtr to make plays. Eventually they brought Delpan back for another run.

I don't think the problem was these AWPers couldn't translate to CS:GO but has more to do with work ethics. They peaked in 1.6 because they played it hard when they were still young. Most of them were 25+ or more when CS:GO was released. You have other priorities then, and in the beginning CS:GO wasn't a well paid game. Lots of orgs in the beginning didn't even offer salaries to players that transitioned to CS:GO. Literally everyone thought the game would be a fluke and would die out in its first year. NiP was like the only org that came into CS:GO and offered their players decent salaries & really tried hard to become the best. Once Valve started taking charge and added skins + major tournaments the interested sort of peaked, thats when teams like fnatic etc transitioned and players actually started becoming pros for real. markeloff probably could've made the most impact in CS:GO, but the guy was an alcoholic. Pretty sure the other "stars" were mostly party animals too that didn't put in the effort required. I guess all of them thought they would steamroll in CS:GO
