I liked his return to G2, he's only 26 , he's a good awper but for sure he'll need some time to adapt and become good again. What do you think about this decision by G2?
2021-11-23 22:55
Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
Even without adapting he's a million times better than botanek with awp

I think you forgot how bad Kenny was before he got benched, Amanek isn’t great with the AWP but he’s much more stable and doesn’t throw entire games by overpeeking almost every round

I'd love to see good form from him as well, that also might increase his chances of going to a t1/t2 team or maybe even replacing jackz/amanek but the 1st option is more likely if he plays well

Would love to see him play, but chances of him going back to g2 are lowz kenny said on stream that he doesnt want to be in g2 anymore since he was there for 4 years
2021-12-01 07:00
G2 vs NaVi katowice finals, kenny had less than 30 kills playing with the easiest gun in the game and in best position.

They got destroyed in that final And Kenny was the second highest rated awper in the event
2021-11-24 00:54
sure, but overall he had a banging event hadn't been in a final for a long time, I'd say he was very nervous !

Not nervous, navi was just really good, this guy is stupid, just bcz u hav awp doesnt mean u play good every game, especially when ur playing against a dominant team and ur getting shit on
2021-11-25 07:54
overall event he was playing for mvp. But in the final lol he choked so hard. He should've cryed on the stage.

+1 and he was actually moved more towards a support awper (which doesn't fit him) than a star player once niko came
2021-11-24 15:56

exactly, once niko came his freedom was at least cut in half and the pandemic then gave him the rest (and he still had an 1.0+ rating at all times) people just keep comparing his performance to his unmatched skill ceiling...

amanek? stable? youre smoking some shit. Amanek was insanely consistent as support, as awp hes inconsistent af and even his peaks arent much better than kennys lows
2021-11-24 08:37
3 replies
Stable in that he isn’t a liability with the AWP, he plays it passively and doesn’t overpeek, allowing him to stay alive and get support when he doesn’t get a kill. Meanwhile Kenny in his last few active months was almost always the first to die without finding any impact, leaving G2 in a 4v5 with the most expensive gun down already

he literally is a liability, he whiffs so frequently and has 0 impact. You dont want a passive useless awp in this meta, you want them getting in their face and getting openings, or at the very least doing something like jame and having nice multikills.
2021-11-24 08:57
1 reply
Yeah but a passive awp that whiffs a shot and then falls back is better than an aggressive AWP that whiffs and then dies because he’s in an advanced position. Plus When you have Star riflers like Niko and Hunter and a real dedicated entry with jackz a passive AWP fits the team better imo. Also Amanek did well in every match of the mayor except the final where they all kind of fell flat. I have serious doubts that Kenny would have done better

This is just false information and people jumping on the "oh kennys is poor and inconsistent bandwagon" Let's look at the facts shall we? kennyS was benched whilst he had a 2.0 rating (previous 3 months) of 1.11, which.... although is low compared to his usual statistics... is far better than Amaneks 2.0 rating as the primary awper, currently at 1.03. You can check that by going here and clicking on his timeline, shows his stats just before he was benched; hltv.org/team/5995/g2#tab-rosterBox This also means that he is the 3rd highest rated player within the current roster.......... If you think kennyS was benched for any other reason than giving NiKo and Hunter the positions and space that they want then you are mental..... considering it was well documented that NiKo was supposed to take up the primary awp role..............well that worked, right?

1. How is it well documented that Niko was supposed to take the Main AWP? 2. If he was supposed to take the AWP, why didn’t he only take the AWP for a handful of matches? 3. Apart from all the above: you can hardly disagree that G2 performed way better after benching him

1: Everyone knows that they wanted niko to try and be a main-awper.. Hunter said it, niko said it, nexa said it. etc 2: Its not like they just did a handful of matches, they also do scrims. just cause we only seen him try it in a handfull of matches, doesn't mean that they didn't give him a chance. 3: Well, we barely got to see niko and kenny play together, and also NIKO carried hard on LANS, before the major g2 was terrible, thats why everyone thought they would go out 0-3. so i wouldn't really say the team got so much better, i would just say niko got so much better especilaly on LAN which carried the team. u forget how bad g2 was looking before the major

“Everyone knows” is the same as source: Trust me bro NiKo played the AWP for a few months in Faze before they signed Broky so they knew that he wasn’t great with it. And when they tried it in Scrimms and it didn’t work out then why would they still have benched Kenny if he was doing so great? Keep in mind he is one of the most beloved and marketable players of all time! I know that his rating wasn’t terrible but the rating doesn’t tell the full story, he genuinely wasn’t good anymore. Amanek isn’t a good solution either but the team as a whole did far better with him

"same source as trust me bro" i literally gave u the sources lol? g2 themselves said that he was gonna main awp. And yeah kenny was not performing very good, but he wasn't as bad as people make it seem. I don't blame g2 for benching him, the only problem i have is that they replaced him with amanek. who is not only worse on the awp, but u also take away amanek's ability to create a ton of space for the team. The main reason i really replied to your thread is cause u said "well g2 performed way better when kicking him" and i think people are forgetting how bad g2 was before LAN niko was carrying them. And that g2 in 2020 made top 1 hltv with kenny on their roster and being the highest (or 2nd after hunter) rated player. TLDR: I think people overhype new g2 cause of niko carrying/underrate g2 with kenny in 2020 + i dont dissagree with benching kenny but i do dissagree with them replacing him with amanek

Others have addressed point 1 and 2... let me just address point 3. G2 before NiKo came, were performing similar to what G2 are performing with Niko instead of Kennys.....therefore the issues came when Kennys and NiKo played together as it clearly didn't work....but they weren't going to kick NiKo again, due to NiKo/Hunter combo...the only real option they had was to bench kenny. But to say that kennys was poor is just not true.

I don't think he was performing as well as kennys usually performs, I think we can both agree on that at least. I do think that is to do with the role that G2 were trying to implement does not suit kennys, however he is definitely better at it than Amanek (I also don't think Amanek is poor, just not quite the same impact as kennys).

nexa is a tactical genius. He is best known for his signature tactic ”going B, but then choking in finals against NaVi”. He also has a second little known tactic of ”going A, but then making himself have visa issues to bring back kennyS”. What an absolute legend. Top 3 IGL 4 sure.

Depends on the context. If you're talking about success, then yes "only" makes sense in those figures. If you're talking about not being washed up because of age specifically, then "only" can be applied for any age lower than than players who are considered old like karrigan

I think the reason he said only, or why other people would say only is cause kenny has been around since the beginning. so people would expect him to be older.

Dude. If you didn't watch G2 this year/end of the last year, it's ok. But saying Kennys RN is (not in the past RIGHT NOW) a proper Awper is delusional. They need a proper awper, and they are trying to get m0NESY or El1an who would both full the role very well. But saying Kennys is a proper Awper RN is just dumb.

Dude I have painfully watched G2 throughout the year and KennyS is a shadow of of the player he used to be. I 100% agree with G2 replacing him but my point was that AmaNEk isn't any better then even I washed up Kenny, let alone if he ever were to git gud again. I'm not sold on monesy yet because of his age/experience, however I think el1an would be a really good fit for the team. (There's a fairly sizable different between washed up and not a proper awper - washed up or not, he is still a proper/dedicated awper)

Hmm I get what you are saying. I still disagree as Kennys' problem, apart from whiffing, was not being that smart, and I think AmaneK is a smarter player. But yes, you totally have a point, you have convinced me that AmaneK is a worse Awper than kenny, even if he fits better in this specific case
2021-11-30 16:02
kennyS was ass last year that's why G2 benched him and brought back Jackz to the team not to mention that he miss easy shot a lot
