Why bench RUSH but not JKS?
United States ShakezullahGOD 
JKS is equally as problematic to the team as RUSH in terms of fragging power

I agree, and the worst part is RUSH has a lot more support impact. It would’ve made more sense to swap JKS for es3tag instead.

idk 1.04 is slightly more than 0.87 rating 🤔 Am too lazy to go into the details so if there is something that makes the difference smoler hit me up

Rating ain't everything. Rush would run in full blind through a double molly just to distract so that Konfig can get three entries. And sometimes Rush will even get a an entry or two himself. Who's gonna do the soldier job now? Meanwhile half of JKS kills are useless.

es3tag has been praised by his former teammates as not giving a fuck about personal stats just like RUSH though, that's why he was even AWPing in C9.

You can't say "doesn't give a fuck about personal stats" and then use awping as an example of that lmao.

I mean he clearly didn't cut it as an AWPer if u checked his stats, C9 was a mess.

es3tag played support player back in Astralis
2021-07-29 13:06
Yes that is true, I haven't followed them very closely but felt like Rush was an important piece for them. Though if Col disagree, that's fine by me, and Ese3tag is a sick player to have.

Thing is anybody can do that, so a change wont be a downgrade Kinda the same happens with Sanji imo, "who's gonna drop awp and bait for Jame?" Anybody can The moment esetag plays other positions better its an instant upgrade

Can do doesn't equal will do. Egos are a thing in csgo. Rush is a pretty decent anchor. The reason his stats are skewed is his sacrifices on T side.

It's not MM, they have contracts, it's not like he can start doing whatever the fuck he wants. If CoL want him to do dumb shit every other round dont you think they wouldve worked that out before the signing??? Pretty much everybody is a decent anchor is CT, and es3tag is a good one at that
2021-07-29 13:23
That’s not true. Jks is an an anchor and has waaaaay better CT side stats
2021-07-29 13:57
Jks has a higher support round % and higher KAST than rush

He was supposed the be the 2nd/3rd star player lol. He was brought in by his insane performance in RNG/100T If he's not fragging enough why do need him then?

That's not why he was brought in though. BlameF takes the star roles, K0nfig is the star entry, and poizon plays AWP. RUSH and jks are support players by default. Both anchor sites which inherently lead to less kills. You HAVE to leave room for BlameF, k0nfig and poizon because of their roles and that leaves very little space for jks and RUSH jks has played ok for his roles. I think he has done a poor job adapting, bc I think very highly of him and think he has the talent to be a top 20 player. I think his issue is that he has played a certain way for the past like 7 years and is having trouble swapping to his new roles fully. However there are bigger issues than jks. One player with a 1.04 rating doesnt tank a team to where CoL are right now. Poizon and BlameF's calling are the biggest issues at the moment. jks is the person you consider kicking to go from top 8 to top 5. CoL are currently not even top 15, so they have waaaay bigger issues than their supports/anchors

jks will likely be kicked/leave on his own soon so hopefully he can find a better fit
2021-07-29 15:03
Yeah idk either because as they said in hltv confirmed both jks and blameF have the same roles and they both take up a lot of space on the server so benching jks would have been the smartest move
2021-07-29 13:01
Jks more expensive, would be waste of money to just bench him this early

complexity seem to have just put blamef in charge and i really dont think its a good idea looking at the changes he has made, adding two ex-teammates one of which is known to not last on teams for more than 3 months and es3tag. complexitys t sides are awful, adding a new coach would give them a lot of new perspective but i doubt a tier 3 coach is gonna do much in terms of levelling up their play. complexitys ct sides are fine in retrospect, their two anchors were playing ok and k0nfig and blamef are good however when you have your awper as inconsistent as poizon is, no shit you’re gonna struggle to win games, 1.04 rating on ct side awping is just straight up not good enough for tier1, if poizon doesn’t start playing consistently good or get kicked i feel like this team is going to carry on losing
2021-07-29 14:03
I think JKS was a bit more reliable as site anchor and RUSH's role on T side was just easier to replace, don't think either of them were the problem though. blameF is really the big question mark for me, often leaves his team hanging when he is in a position to have big impact which is really weird for any pro player, especially as an IGL. Also seems to choke the calling a lot when they cant just brute force rounds with firepower, maybe peacemaker can help him with that.
2021-07-29 14:13
Rush also played the worst bombsites on pretty much every map and he pretty much goes in first on every T round but lets pretend BaitF strats and map pool are good for coL

Their problem is that theyre playing like 5 solo-q players Yesterday I checked their flash stats, and I swear theyre the only team where all players have it negative. Usually at least 2 have high flash assist and opp flashed time stats Peacemaker will work a lot Im sure, he needs to built the team literally
