-jackz -amanek is so obvious but hltv apologists will tell you how important they are for the team!!!1
I'm not reading this long article, but I know you are wrong
Also just watching G2 play you can see them choke kills when good team that you watch you see GET kills that they shouldn't instead of the oppoite
Bruh, they have NiKo and huNter, they need 5 superstars in one team or what
g2 need to kick toxic niko
didn't read, g2 100% fix to make it to major final:-amanke +star awper.
Tbh I would keep nexa niko and hunter and maybe even amanek and probably remove jackz and malek since it doesnt look he is helping the team that much but idk who could replace them
Friendly reminder that Hunter used to have stats of top 10 player in the world and actually was 13th best player in 2020. If two top 10 players are not enough for the team to win something, then this team is really bad in terms of leading, structure etc
they dont need fire power.. ok maybe an awper but they clearly have communication issues
Yeah, firepower surely is all they need. Not.
-nexa +jame -jackz +yekindar
Is there even such a role as supportive awper?
jackz really shouldnt be on that team
you cant have 0.90 rating as entry fragger lol
JACKZ has 0.83 rating on EPL and Blast while playing vs sinners, forze, mibr, etc.
this is a joke
-amanek -jackz -malek
+Impulse/dennyslaw/h4rn +maden +kassad/YNk
-jackz-amanek +hadji +Maka when?
-nexa -amanek or jackz + a good igl and a good awper. nexa is a pretty good igl but he doesnt have the mental switch as many other igls, if they are loosing they go to a completely different planet and start calling insanely good like karrigan at cologne or boom at epl
biggest joker is ocelot, remember how he was trolling faze management while buying niko now he made a fool of himself more than 1 year with no trophies for his so called "dream team with brothers"
and also, at this point it's very clear that niko is fucking toxic, the whole acting/gestures that he does when things aren't working, like he's actually suffering the game all the time.. I'm sure it takes its toll on the teammates
no wonder all his teams always choke and will keep choking on important matches
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.
i didnt hear such bullshit for long time
-first of all niko is on point right now
-hunter just has some bad days an still has an rating over 1
-jacks just not good time if he hits he fckin owns even the parents of his opponents top5 best entry fraggers right now
-amenek just picked up the awp like 6 month ago give him time and he is only red because niko and hunter take as much initiative as they do amenek isnt the starplayer in the squad its ok that he does not take as much initiative we have enough of that
-nexa doing what he needs pasive igl on an aggresive team perfect fit
all in all g2 inst playing well rn but saying they lack firepower when every player in the team can and has taken over games is just stupid is just stupid
Best option is -jackz +boros -amanek +nivera
+Miikka "suNny" Kemppi aka 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.
I mean when its jackz' match then its so satisfying to watch
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.
