G2 need firepower
Brehze | 
Bulgaria |mens| 
So I've never understood how anyone can ever possibly say G2 is "the strongest fragging team in the world" like people did when they added niko, I mean to me calling G2 average would be overestimating them GREATLY. They have legitimately got to be the 2nd worst9after big) or even worst fragging team in t1. Niko - only one that justifies calling him top of t1 player Hunter - barely above 1 rating but still acceptable gameplay nexa- shit stats and mediocre IGL but still IGL so can't blame him that much with how bad the team is jackz and amanek- 0.93 and 0.95 ratings, how can "top fraggign team" have these fucking players???????????????????, Amanek AWPER with red rating actually a joke. Last of all G2 don't have an Awper which AUTOMATICALLY make them worse fragging wise than all of the other teams, the awper is the carry of the team, the player with the strongest gun, they don't even have one for fucks sake, the entire Astralis team was better with awp than amanek. Conclusion: G2 fluke team needs a real Awper and stronger riflers with at least jackz getting replaced as a beginning, and if anyone dares tell me how impactful amanek is remember that: at the end of the day csgo is a shooter game and as much as people wanna say that brain>aim at the end of the day if one team shoots the other one better you will really struggle winning(Team Liquid were a thing), So G2 stop being stupid and at lest bring kenny back so your team doesn't look like a complete and utter joke.

Eg actually have good firepower with brezhe obo and michu, they're just shit for some reason
2021-09-22 21:38
eg used to be basically top 5 firepower wise with cerq tarik ethan brehze stan, now their roster has good firepower, they just need more time to organize themselves before they can be judged. On paper however thei roster is still kinda fire obo: good fragger Michu: pretty good frager(check stats) cerq: biggest slump I've seen a player have although history says he's good stan: alright compared to nexa especially brehze: no comment needed

They chucked him at AWP for no reason. He was doing better than most supports (almost all of them other than like perfecto, rain, xyp) when he was still in that role. They need a support and amanek is better than any available option/cheap option.

fpl is fpl and officials are officials, theyre 2 seperate worlds, as I said G2 need firepower and emi does not bring that, maden you could say the same about seeing as he is not consistent enough. Really if you make that squad and think about it, you would have 3 tier 2 worthy players since nexa's IGLing clearly hasn't been good enough and his fragging is t2. So the same problem would still remain

3*0.9 rating because the Kovacs take so much space for the team. hunter litteraly needs Jackz to be his personnal bitch to perform AmanEK is one of the best support on this game, he is forced to awp whereas his goal as a support is to support and not farm kills nexa is problematic, if he was a top tier caller it would be ok for him to have this rating but he isn't. He isn't a fragging igl either. He is the first that needs to be kick imo Niko too good even if he takes a lot of space

yes, of course there is (skadoodle when c9 won the major was the example of a support awper but that was far away though, the meta shifted a lot) but Amanek isn't a proper awper, that is the problem, I have been saying this since they kicked kennyS and didn't get an awper to replace him, sure hunter was playing worse without jackz but are his individual stats more important than winning? If they get a solid awper (doesn't even need to be a star) for Jackz they would have more than enough firepower

no, that's just you saying all this while niko is obviously a top performer, the "price" of having a player like this in your team is the toxicity, it's not too hard to spot it. even the coach has to call him out apart, to calm him down sometimes. there's no way around that.

toxicity is different than tilt, i can agree that niko sometimes tilts too much and that causes him to play worse but you're saying he is toxic to his teammates which is not true. He just has passion for the game and when things go wrong he gets frustrated.

You really think BIG "shot" better than G2 in that game? That was a classic case of getting outplayed hard. You're delusional if you think G2's main problem is firepower.

G2 just need to shoot people

Having watched a lot of their games for the past two years or so, here's what I see right now. NiKo: He's playing great right now, but I have a tough time believing he's not bringing the vibe down a bit. I think his toxic tendencies are better than they were a few years ago, but they're definitely not gone by any means. huNter-: Great player, I just think he has a lack of confidence and motivation at the moment which is killing him. This is going to be the common theme for everyone here, but I just want to see him playing more confidently and winning more gunfights. nexa: He was maybe the best fragging IGL in the game for a while shortly after G2 picked him up, but he just doesn't look as threatening as he used to be. I think his calls are good and he's great in the clutch, but he's not showing up in the same way that he used to fairly regularly. (Which, hey, maybe it's just that he doesn't have to frag as hard anymore with both NiKo and huNter- on the team.) AmaNEk: Possibly the most unique player in the top 20. He's such a bizarre mix between a decent CT-sided defensive AWPer and a T-sided role-player, lurker, and SMG specialist. I would just want to see him being a bit more threatening with the AWP in his hands and he'd be a great player. JaCkz: It's no secret that his entry role on the T side is almost entirely just serving as cannon fodder for the rest of his team. The frags that he does get are usually very impactful and give G2 a good chance at an instant round win. On the CT side, it just feels like he goes one-and-done or falls without getting a kill far too often for being a site anchor. Occasionally, he'll sprinkle in plays of insane aim that it barely feels like any other player could do, but I need to see him fragging a lot harder and more consistently on both sides. I love you Jackie, but you've got to step it up mate.

This guy calling one of the best teams in the year a joke while repping EG flair Focus on your top 50 team bro

The issue with G2 is tactical, not firepower. There isnt a player who can match s1mple or zywoo on the international market, therefore you need a strong IGL first. Poach someone like ALEX when possible, or even better poach aleksib (can't get better choice except if gla1ve was available) and then build more around the IGL. Surround a top tier IGL with the best international talent, thats the only way to stick it into the likes of navi and vitality. Knowing how NiKo thinks of CS as a game aint happening though. It will be like faze, win a trophy once a year and call that a success.
