Spunj. Thorin has said repeatedly that Spunj and Janko are better on the desk than he is since they can banter as well as him while also having considerably better analytical skills and understanding of the game

YNK- has better analytical skills but his banter's not as good. SPUNJ is god tier. Thorin's quite entertaining.

I agree, that's why I answered with Spunj and not ynk. However Thorin has said he considers them to be the only top tier analysts in CS. I prefer mauisnake over ynk, but eh

Well it's personal preference at the end of the day, i personally don't care how good an analyst is, if they're not entertaining im skipping the time in between matches aka most of the time. I only usually watch whenever it's SPUNJ or Thorin in between matches because it's not that boring. Usually the analysts don't really add anything I don't already know.

well if you play the game and watch the teams playing logically and consistently them you dont really need the analists theyre mostly there for the casual viewer/player so it makes sense to skip the time, i like the background noise while im working so i leave it on. xD
2021-10-28 07:46
I actually prefer YNK over mauisnake but I feel like Maui is really quite good. I think he would be better in a host role tbf

how old are you? since you make stupid points like 'how would a guy that never played the game to any serious level be able to analyze it properly?' (you clearly have no clue about competition, or the ability to understand something on an intellectual level without having the mechanical capabilities), or expecting (what you believe to be) 'professionalism' out of video game commentators or 'sports' commentators as a whole... you clearly dont watch sports, so why would you talk about these things as though youre familiar with the standards or norms? fr hold up on talking bout age when youre as immature and poorly thought-out an individual as you are.

He questioned why flamie and blade were wasting S1mples prime and holding him back by making the same repeated mistakes on T side and keeping players that obviously shouldn't be on the roster. He then did a 2 hour podcast where he spoke to him in-depth about NaVi's problems NaVi then kicked flamie and improved T sides. I see nothing wrong with what Thorin did or said

No it was that they were getting dumpstered on T sides which is completely true? Did you even watch NaVi games earlier this year and last year? It was a fucking joke. They've fixed T sides and guess what happened -> they started winning and are now the undisputed top 1 team
