nawwk and phzy
Nigeria literallywho2 
just curious, why did nip choose to use phzy instead of nawwk? afaik nawwk is still in nip, he is just replaced by device on the main roster. imo nawwk would have been much safer and better choice for nip to use as a standin right now.

probably someone doesnt believe in him anymore in the NIP maybe CEO or just players dont see him as a good fit imo :D

How? Nawwk hasnt played in half a year and could have both hands stuck in Pringles BBQ tubes

genius take phzy an academy player over nawwk the previous carry on the team who only got benched because they picked up a top 3 player of all time why "guys trust me he will carry on map 3 against astralis in the lower bracket" "so we beat astralis? we beat astralis right? right?!" you literally have hindsight and you're still wrong somehow OP obviously means why make the choice going into the event not after they've already bombed out in last place with phzy doing nothing except for on 1 nuke map

tbh i dont know why they dont keep him in roster, such a good player
2021-12-16 16:36
Maybe they want to give him some t1 experience since they wanna sell/develop him

i mean iem winter i can kinda understand, it was "only" 250k tournament and they had to get someone to join quickly because device fell sick, but blast is already much bigger with 1mil prizepool, surely you would pick someone who was main awper before device joined and who has some experience with the core players in the team...
2021-12-16 16:41
I mean it doesn't really matter which one of them you will take in this situation. Imo it makes more sense to fit phzy because he's the first player to replace device in the future and this kind of exp is always good to have.
2021-12-16 16:37
Dont forget, he was dropped for a reason, dude.

he was dropped for device... i dont know what youre trying to say, but pretty sure most of the players would be dropped without any real reason if device was the one to replace them.

+1 lol
2021-12-16 16:40
Not at all lol, he was dropped because he was the most inconsistent on the team and most of the time he was their worst player. I have seen a lot of thread about him recently where people suddenly love him and it's getting really weird.

He had some health problems, burnout and probably trouble sleeping. You could tell at the end before he stepped down he looked like a mess. hltv.org/news/30295/nip-put-nawwk-on-med..

Yupp, exactly, that probably was the reason he was struggling so much to perform.

Some people cant handle large amount of pressure very well. I would think a pro athlete in any sport being part of an organization that expects you to be on the top of your game can be really stressful. And in nawwks case hurtful because i would think his burnout was because he couldnt relax and deal with the pressure to perform. I'm not sure we will see nawwk anymore in tier 1 even though he has the skill for it. Some people just dont have the mental aspect of being a top tier athlete.

100% agree.
2021-12-16 17:08
Astralis is inquiring about buying back device. NIP is doing tryouts before deciding. They already know nawwwk is bad.

Even if it's true they still want to try out their academy player and give them this experience
2021-12-16 16:40
Because they already have phzy under contract with Young Ninjas, Getting him tier 1 experience / exposure benefits the org more

i think he quit playing, hes been afk from social media.
2021-12-16 16:42
Yeah, I miss nawwk on the servers
2021-12-16 16:42
faceit.com/en/players/nawwk/stats/csgo nawwk hasn't really been playing that much lately sure he's still contracted to nip but would you take a player who hasn't been active lately over a player who albeit rather worse but has been playing much more.
2021-12-16 16:43
Didn't know he was still under contract! ez money

i don't think nawwk has a future in NIP, it is better to give tier 1 experience to someone who may actually play for the main roster in the future.

maybe its a market strategy, they bring phzy he plays really well in T1 and maybe teams want to buy him for good price, or maybe to give him a bump in his carrier and boost his confidence
2021-12-16 16:46
cuz he didn't play for 8 month?
2021-12-16 16:49
Because he's played 0 team cs in 8 months + he's completely outdated on their stratbook where phzy and the rest of the academy team probably scrim with the main team and talk strats with them

Why not give the young talent the experience. He has more to gain from it + phzy played good

For all we know he doesn't even play the game anymore, meanwhile phzy is in an active team, of course it's better to pick him
2021-12-16 17:14
1. its better to give a academy player like phzy a chance at T1 2. Theres a chance nawwk is already in another team/in talks with another team but it hasnt been announced yet so they just decided to not use him

get phzy market value up to sell him/use him in the future if he proves to be worth it. which he did imo
2021-12-16 17:17
phzy actually played decent, hyped his team up and overall looked like a nice addition, with enough training he could definitely be a good tier-1 contender nawwk on other hand has immense morale issues which can plague even the best teams
