Finals* also most of G2s success is just from Niko carrying but also hunter, it makes sense why they want to improve the squad to the new meta.

tbf aleksib is better IGL than nexa. G2 is losing so many rounds because of stupid in-game decisions. Also if M0NESY joins, I think aleksib is the superior "teacher" for him to gain t1 experience with. Nexa is really smart and better fragger than aleksib, so both he and g2 would really benefit from him focusing on that. Also it's possible that nexa doesn't want to be IGL anymore

Yes, aleksib is a major finalist IGL who happens to be an overrated IGL. OG's project complete failure is completely his fault, OG's inability to give him a decent roster has nothing to do with it.

2021-12-01 11:05
This stupid ingame decision are always made by the players not nexa. You need to tell the difference between a call or if a player does something stupid by himself. I have seen jackz and amanek doing stupid things so often but that is not nexas fault. He can't control when people decide to peek or repeek or how to rotate, no one can do that xd
2021-12-01 11:23
Idk valde isnt that star player as he usrd to be and mantuu is pretty inconsistent with baiting or saying behind the pack but it still might not happen anyway with aleksib contract until the end of 2022
2021-11-30 09:27
+ nexa had amazing clutches and impact during major. Also good midround calls. Saying it was just because of niko and hunter is stupid

2021-11-30 06:51

i dont think its odd. Nexa wasnt an igl originally i think and he is so fucking good when he focuses on fragging, so if they get a new igl, new awper (aleksib and monesy) and remove -jackz -amanek, they will have a really good roster i think
2021-11-30 08:49
1 reply
No he was always forced to do igl because no one could do it else or at least not better. It's widely known that nexa prefers being a normal player but eventhough igl is not his natural role he is still making good calls esp on all the lan tournaments they had. I feel like during online era malek was interfering with nexa, you could see they had a different playstyle and played more robotic while they had more free calls during Lans. Maybe thats why they kicked malek, because he took control during online events, like a lot of other coaches?
2021-12-01 11:26
Amanek is not the consistent awper they need
2021-11-30 06:55
2 replies
No he is not. Amanek has some good moments but I think he is better as support player. Amanek is also not the aggressive type or someone who plays confident and I think g2 needs exactly that in an AWPer. I still think amanek is overall a good player except that sometimes he does some stupid things or decisions but maybe it's just the pressure

I disagree. Jackz is way more valuable than nexa if nexa is not the IGL. Jackz is akin to taco in those MIBR days, he will run in and die for his teammates to trade and still be the happiest/most hyped/upbeat every single round. NiKo needs that type of energy and positivity to be successful. Amanek is a better all-around player as well, would probably keep him over non-IGL nexa. As soon as the team starts shitting the bed, nexa will be cut. Then aleksib will be cut and NiKo will take over as IGL. Then G2 turns into what FaZe was for NiKo's last year and a half on the roster. Constant turnover, no system, no synergy, no results, waste of everyone's time.

But nexa used to play really good when he didn't have to IGL and that's what G2 want to do. Or atleast try, they can bench jackz/amanzek and don't need to sell them immediately, they can give roster with nexa/monesy/aleksi some time and see if it will work out or no. Nexa has strong friendship with niko/hunter so he's the last one to be kicked + his english is much better than jackz's/amanek's and I think it might really matter if they want to bring monesy and aleksi. Hunter/Niko/Nexa are kinda used to their english.

Did he? I don't remember nexa pre-IGL role, as he was playing in tier 3/4 then so individual performance from that period doesn't really translate to the now. I see it as a pretty equal move, in-game wise. I guess I just think that Jackz is too important to NiKo's mental health and with a lineup of his cousin, a 16 year old, and two extreme beta's in aleksi/nexa, there are bound to be chemistry/morale issues.

2021-12-01 14:06
Are you delusional? Nexa >>>> Jackz. Jackz has great aim but that's it. From 10 clutches he maybe wins 1 and he is also not the smartest player. Nexa has aim (esp if he can focus on himself and not igl) and huge brain. They will never keep jackz or amanek over nexa

How did EPL AN LAST turn out this season? They reached the finals because they didn't have to think about longevity and long term plays. They could just focus on one event and play map by map. Not uncommon dead teams do well if they got the skills and hit their limit: NiP somewhere in the Middle East, Vitality right now, Fnatic first time they removed Golden...
2021-11-30 17:23
NiKo carried G2 in major as fuck, they definitely need changes at the roster. IMO a great G2 would be: NiKo huNter m0NESY AmaNEk Aleksib But the reality probably is this lineup with one difference: +nexa -amanek

Lets be real NiKo hard carried them, if he did 10% worse they would be eliminated in quarterfinals. Theyre the most inconsistent team in the game but also have one of the biggest potentials. They need to kick bot jackz who is either top fragging 30 bomb or getting 5 kills a map and apparently has huge communication problems. Also nexa isnt a very good igl and apparently he wants to switch to support, keeping nexa/hunter/niko together is probably required so they need to get rid of amanek. Aleksib=basically best igl available rn and m0nesy=best upcoming awp in so so long

Aleksib is a rigidly structured igl you know.micro managing, i get the feeling would suffocate players like NiKo who are best when left to their own devices. Then again, it's a speculation in itself. You are forgetting the situation g2 was in, was because of NiKo himself.Even tho he hard carried, he's kinda the reason the roles are fucked. He wants to play with hunter which is fine.but hunter feels comfortable with jackz. So 3 riflers there itself.And you are left to hula hoopla your way about fitting igl,support and awp roles into 2 players.

I mean you cant blame niko for this, its not his decision to bench kennys and instead of getting an awper to bring bot jackz back. That was actually maleks decision (3Head) and he was on hltv confirmed saying "I dont think you need an awp in this meta" bla bla, so if I had to guess it was him. Then of course after months of that failing horribly they try to get amanek to awp (GREAT IDEA GUYS!) and that failed horribly again. Getting an igl and an awp would just fix things pretty much instantly in place of these two, and still leaves niko/hunter to do their own thing
2021-12-01 04:38
2 replies
There's this hltv interview where hunter talks about how he needs jackz with him to perform better. They wouldn't have said yes to adding jackz if everyone disagreed with the move. I doubt malek alone took that decision without taking into account the team's opinion beforehand. And yeah, i do remember malek talking about not necessarily needing an awper which is ridiculous. I am one of those people who strongly believes in needing a support player for a team.So i don't feel -amanek would do any good. Unless ofc nexa becomes the support as rumours suggest. kovac duo,nexa,igl and an awper sounds cool on paper.How can you be confident about that pragmatically when hunter doesn't necessarily feel comfortable without an entry player to rely on.

They are inconsistent and seem to be nowhere ready to beat Navi on a consistent basis, let alone win multiple big tournaments. Even if they had won the Major, everyone knew that it would be their ceiling and a one time occurrence. NiKo cannot be asked to play his best game ever and need some luck to beat a Heroic team with no superstars. For comparison, Astralis' in Blast had barely been together for 2 weeks. Don't get me wrong, Heroic is a great team, best IGL, great calls.. but they invested nowhere near in their line-up nor pay their players as much as G2, who are pushing all their chips in to be nbr 1. They are doing things the right way: give the line-up a chance, observe and analyze, find out the weaknesses, look at the competition, assess your chances, evaluate the options, execute. They need a Tier 1 proven IGL and they need a talented AWPer who can rifle and be a star to complement NiKo. The names leaked match the criteria. Aleksib is highly respected and appreciated as IGL in Tier 1 by all the coaches and IGLs. m0nesy is a mini-s1mple in the making. For once that a cash-spending happy team is doing things right, I don't understand how they can be criticized for it.
2021-12-01 15:41
If nothing changes, they'll never beat NaVi. Seeing how it's the only way to become the best team in the world, G2 definently need changes to get the #1 rank.
