G2…

After the last few tournament results i think some changes are needed on G2. Right now I think G2 have a few possibilities as a replacement for amaNEk but almost all of them have problems; m0NESY is untested in T1, is going to have a high buyout, has poor english, doesn’t want to play for anyone but NaVi, and heavily relies on his team to set him up for frags. Nearly the entire team revolves around him so this would require a complete facelift from G2 in terms of play style, making it a massive investment which could end up terribly if m0NESY isn’t ready for T1 competition yet. NaVi is asking for ZywOo levels of cash for him meaning G2 m0NESY is probably never going to happen. Oskar is putting up really good numbers for being 30 years old, but he is also 30 years old. Oskar is a pretty solid awper who can hold his own and wouldn’t need much support leaving huNter to lurk more. On paper he seems like a great choice; has the motivation, stats, and would have a pretty cheap buyout. But he is 30 years old, at his age he is only going to get worse, I think if G2 pick up Oskar it would be a pretty short 1-2 year contract because to put it blatantly; he’s a bad investment. ZywOo. I’m not a ZywOo fan but this would definitely be one of, if not the, most hype roster moves is cs history. And Vitality know that; there is no way Vitality would let ZywOo leave unless G2 spend a lot of cash. I could also see a clash of personalities in NiKo and ZywOo but who knows, I’d love to see this happen, but it wont lol. Allu is a pick I dont really hear anyone talk about but is very possible. NiKo and Allu are apparently on good terms and with Allu being benched I doubt his buyout would hurt the bank that much. The one problem I have with this is age; Allu is 29 and has been benched for the last 6 months so he could be pretty washed. Smoooya would be the biggest meme pick and i’d love to see it. I personally think smoooya is a pretty overhyped player but hes only 10K and the comms between him and NiKo would be crazy. dennyslaw is (in my opinion) the most likely to happen. dennyslaw is doing well in SKADE and if G2 ever go full balkan Bulgarian is close to Serbian so he could manage the language difference. He’s a cheap, solid awper. Nivera is a risky move but G2 would be the best place for him; he’s a great awper, just got over-shadowed by ZywOo and the fact apEX doesn’t like him personally. The risk would be the fact this kid has been benched for almost 6 months now and before that was only playing as a 6th, but he’s 20 years old and can put down numbers in T1. El1an is a good choice on paper, but like m0NESY he requires his team to set him up so unless G2 are kicking NiKo and huNter I doubt he’s joining anytime soon. Farlig issomeone I dont know much about but I feel like its kinda risky. This kid is good on fpx but had yet to attend a single LAN event so there is high possibility hes just a onliner. He is also a very passive awp so who knows, could be the perfect fit, could suck. Idk oSee is the best awper in NA. I’d love to see him on a real team but I doubt he’d go to an eu team. More likely than not he’s going to bounce around on shitty NA teams until he gets an offer from Liquid when they drop stewie and fallen and get a decent IGL. Broky probably thinks G2 is a downgrade after FaZe’s LAN debut and he played with NiKo before (when they were both on FaZe) so after that experience I doubt Broky wants to play with toxic NiKo when he can chill with Karrigan. CadiaN is by far the best choice out of any player. An AWP + IGL all in one. Allowing G2 to have 4 good aimers and have CadiaN deal with IGLing and AWPing would be great as -amaNEk wouldn’t even be necessary; just send him back to being an anchor and do -nexa. This would also stop the role clashes of NiKo and nexa which would be great while letting amaNEk play better roles. But it wont happen because he’s gonna be banned. In the end any of these players could help G2 but honestly I’d like to see G2 completely disband. It’d really enrich the scene with some good free agents for other teams to pick up. Tl;DR: disband.

2021-09-23 14:17
I'm gonna try to do this without sounding like a total dick. G2 doesn't need a high fragging IGL, they have plenty of other avenues to get that done, MSL would bring the one thing you people seem to think is totally irrelevant but it's the reason why G2 are constantly failing, structure, they have none, they are totally strategically inept. Yes, nexa might have higher fragging potential, but he sure as hell does not bring a very solid system, that's what MSL brings, that has been the only thing he has brought to his previous teams.

i'd agree with you but MSL is still a bad IGL. he failed to lead his team against spirit ACADEMY just a few weeks ago. north was mostly successless with him - they just peaked at dreamhack opens. he's again and again proven that he makes the wrong roster-decisions, most recently declined a bunch of orgs to play with jugi,aizy and tenzki instead lol AND he fails to see his own mistakes, he does not improve i'd be in for G2 getting a IGL that might be a bit weaker individually but MSL cannot be an option if they dont wanna fall into nothingness

Yep. Really sad cause he could’ve been such a great player but he gets wasted as a 6th and then benched

Nivera/Zywoo/El1an - Any information about their english? I know nivera/zywoo used to play FPL from time to time but being able to communicate in FPL isn't enough to play in international team. Also if they wanna go full balkan, they can also try to pick up h4rn, he's doing pretty good in T2/T3, new org = most likely really cheap buyout and I guess he wouldn't even hesitate switching from matchfixing with bulkarian friends to playing in G2.

Yes Zywoo can't talk so much in english, but he can give position and that's all. Jackz was also not very good at english. For Nivera, he's in talk for joining Liquid Valorant so I think he can speak english.

i mean G2 have finished Top2 in the last 2 LAN events (IEM Cologne 2021 & IEM Katowice 2020) and its not an excuse its a fact. G2 are not onliners. like BIG is. There is no excusing how bad G2 are playing rn, but it is still Online. thats why G2 havent lost their #3 spot yet. and to answer your statement: "BIG would destroy them 2:0 on LAN as well as online" Yeah no. BIG is a bunch of Onliners that can't do shit on LAN. that is why BIG finished 7-8th and G2 finished 2nd. tldr: G2 is a LAN team, allthough im not making excuses for how bad they are playing rn. and BIG is just a online team that wont ever be good on LAN.

Where does everyone get this idea that NiKo is super toxic? When they kicked karrigan back then FaZe was shit lol. They needed changes. The only issue was that they didn't have a replacement for karrigan, so they got fucked in the long run. Hindsight is 20/20 it's easy to say kicking karrigan was a shit move, but at the time, it didn't really seem like all that bad of one.
2021-09-23 03:10

The reason Karrigan was kicked was because the team didnt trust his calling anymore. Thats cause NiKo questioned him too many times, especially after boston/kato final loses.

Again how is that a bad thing? There is a reason Karrigan has always brought teams to the top but never really ascended from a top team to a legendary team immortalized in the history of Counter-Strike. A good leader can be questioned and still take charge and reaffirm the team. Karrigan was unable to do that on ANY of his teams. That goes to say the kind of IGL he is. Karrigan is a world-class IGL. He is very accomplished. However, the question is will Karrigan ever be a legendary IGL.

Yeah and as I said, 59 maps, 14 against T1 EU Teams, rest are NA/T2 teams. Top20 and his rating falls to 1.06 and 0.95 impact because in G2 he's gonna play most of the maches against top10 (maybe sometimes top15-20), rarely against #20-30 and below.

In my opinion the main problem is how Malik or whatever the couch's name is, cares about Hunter's opinion on keeping Jackz. You can't keep someone who is not performing well enough only because one guy from the team likes to play with him. Hunter needs to grow the fu*k up and stop being dependable on a single player but make most of what he has, no matter what that would be. I know it's easier to say than do, but still, it's his job after all.

Money isn't the problem, branding is, and I'm talking about Zywoo. Vit is an irrelevant org and Zywoo was carrying their brand, but if they exchange Zywoo <> Rekkles from G2, I could see vitalulty conceding Byetality hasn't really made notorious moves besides signing G2's washed up leftovers across different esports teams, so getting Rekkles would be in their working line and it'd also help their non-existent lore in League, since Selfmade and Rekkles would be reuniting, and these two were the only ones to get along with each other in Scamnatic

- amanek + any young and upcoming or t1 awper imo, amanek is one of the most underrated player ever but he got screwd over hard playing as an awper when it shouldve been niko. i personaly think hunter is a god and nexa is still pretty good in terms of fragging and igl'ing also jackz entry fragging role is just too important, so i cant see them getting kicked out so g2's best chance is probably kicking amanek for a more talented and established awper.

2021-09-23 20:21
Tbf I'd much rather see this lineup stay for now. They change something now they have a few weeks to figure out everything and that next event is very very important for G2. Stay like it is, fix ur mistakes and come back stronger. We saw a much stronger G2 but they did choke on some rounds. Nexa's igling i wouldn't say is great but it's sometimes amazing and then there's those stack B 4x in a row rounds when I'm facepalming and I'm lvl6 igl. U never stack a site on full buy unless u have great indicators towards it being that site (clear mid on inferno = all banana / b) It's just brainless plays, they lost their inferno because of those rounds.

Amanek just isnt a capable awper. I cant believe anyone thinks that he is good enough to play t1 as an awper. He barely puts up 1 rating with the best role in the game

1 reply
He blows up one day then next day he's just so bad. His role isn't specifically "hard" but he just doesn't know how to play it ig. Or he whiffs shots. I agree. But is there any other awper that they could bring in cause imo as said i'd much rather stay like this for this next event and then make changes. But if they really succeed in it then no need for changes.
2021-09-26 14:02
Amanek is a great player but i think the main problem in the team right now is nexa. Nexa and JACKZ really need to go and i think instead of picking up an entry player Hunter should go to the entry role. Amanek should go back to being a support/role player and i think they should have kenny back on the starting roster. Kennys form has improved and he seems in good shape. The last piece is a new igl which is hard to find these days. Really the only option right now is Gla1ve; if when he comes back he leaves astralis which is unlikely. Hunter will most likely not perform as well because he will not be able to bait JACKZ and will be forced to entry along with gla1ve. The new roster would be: NiKo: Main Rifler Hunter : Entry Amanek : Support KennyS : Awper Gla1ve : IGL
2021-09-23 20:26
G2 is relevant till now because of niko, just as faze, the team has no future but niko keeps displaying status and maps.

even to read TLDR, one has to do some scrolling. like wtf.

Nice analysis and all but how would Niko clash with Zywoo? Zywoo doesnt have a huge ego and does whatever his team asks him too

ZywOo is very humble and NiKo is very brash. Those 2 personalities usually dont do well together

Wut? They work perfectly fine What doesnt work is when someone with a big ego plays with another person who is cocky. Then the clash would happen since each person thinks they can do better than the other.
