Thorin about G2 and NiKo
 | 
Finland DTeeVee 
twitter.com/Thorin/status/14482923632485.. Thorin thinks that NiKo should not be blamed for G2's struggles. Do you agree with him? Personally I think I do, the narrative that NiKo "destroyed G2" is false imo. They improved massively after he joined, I think G2 were like top 10 before NiKo joined and with him they reached top 3.

no honestly he's right, he's consistently delivered
2021-10-13 21:01
It was questionable the stupid moves he did in faze by igl'ing or picking other igl's that didn't suit the team at all But in g2 he is a soldier and im glad that he is performing and doing what he does best He probably still has somewhat of an ego but I do get why he might get frustrated at times when he is the only one performing Watching prime niko is something special

he critisised him for being a dumbo because sometimes he was but when it comes to in game, he got nothing but praise from thorin
2021-10-13 21:15
NiKo and Hunter are the only players in this G2 pulling their weight 90% of the time. The team is lacking in tactical depth and a dedicated awper.

Awper is definitely the big thing. Nexa can be a decent igl. But Amanek cannot awp. He misses like 80% of his shots. An awper is one of the most important roles. And not getting any impact kills a team

#60 just read that, i am currently re-reading it as well
2021-10-13 22:39
exactly, a good awper provides so much stability to teams. The most powerful gun in the game needs an user who can exert control in a map just by being there. While I think Amanek does not deserve to get cut, but he clearly is not good enough awper. But cutting him for an awper might not be a bad thing. Jackz is not getting a free pass either, but he plays dog roles and positions, so cutting him is not really the easy decision either. IMO nexa has not really been consistent enough in G2, he needs to step up a lot or get cut. He has some of the best players in the world, I would expect more than he is delivering now. I agree he can be good, but we have not seen much of it lately. Who would even replace him? NiKo can't IGL, so they have to get someone from the outside.

Back when they first kicked Jackz I thought they should've kicked Amanek instead. At the time Niko had similar roles but was a far better player. I think Jackz brings in plenty, but Amanek doesn't have a clear role

Tbh I don't think it was really an English issue. I feel like it was more that they didn't want to say that Jackz didn't fit in the team or was bad so they just said language issues so he wouldn't feel as bad. When he came back the team was fine. But maybe I"m wrong lmao.

He hasnt pulled a karrigan yet so there is no reason to assume he is destroying the team with his ego or something Carlos and malek is probably keeping him under check more than Faze which is pretty loose in terms of player control
2021-10-13 21:41
i agree he is not the problem yeah

He is kinda right, like NiKo even took more of an entry role so JaCkz doesn't always have to go first and he is rn. for me TOP 10 player in the world, while the rest of G2 is just not impressive. I completely disagree with everyone that says that it's NiKo who destroyed G2, it's not like he took all the good spots and good roles, he is playing really aggresively rn., and it feels like JaCkz and huNter- have more comfortable roles, and still NiKo is by far the best player in the team. G2 were like a TOP 10-15 team without him yeah, and now they are TOP 5. He's been a huge boost for this team.
2021-10-13 21:47
Lol this is an AWP ABUSER game and G2 has NO AWP ABUSER Every match is AWP abuser diff G2 is actually overperforming by being top5 without an awp abuser
2021-10-13 21:52
I think Niko is playing better in G2 than Faze, much more in service of the team. I don't know how the teamspeak is ofc

G2 teamspeak here Nexa: niko and hunter go kill we watch
2021-10-13 21:58
It's time to kick french bots from G2 and sign decent players.
2021-10-13 22:20
Ofc it's not niko's fault, he literally gave his roles to nexa on t-side, that's why statistically he's been so shit on it, he is doing everything required from him. In cologne final had a bad good map but then recomposed and destroyed in the 2 next maps. People blaming him aren't watching the games and think this is the old niko in faze

People who think that NiKo ruined G2 are blind
2021-10-14 04:04
Imo skill ceilling in g2 improve a lot with Niko but they had a pretty good system before he joined so bringing in Niko make the system struggle a bit, but its g2, one day gods next day shiet
2021-10-14 09:36
Thorin "thinks" me: no thanks
2021-10-14 09:37
this g2 stays alive thanks to hunter and niko and sometimes due to some hero plays from the rest. They are great individually but teamplay kinda sucks
2021-10-14 10:11
G2 still has the same problem they have had for a long time...a consistent awper
