G2 better with HooXi ?
France m0NESY_biggest_fan 
ok so hear me out in CPH Flames he was the only one that was not performing, kinda like HUNDEN Heroic was decent with HUNDEN, HooXi > HUNDEN & G2 > Heroic maybe HooXi will be dogshit, but NiKo, jks, m0NESY & huNter will all be godlike, in their favourite roles and will carry his ass HooXi will most likely play tiziaN roles for example so he doesn't rly need to perform much, especially on T side, he'll prolly be anchor on CT so it's hard, but with players like NiKo or huNter, he can flash or bait for them and give them all the frags TLDR : G2 top 1, NiKo 1st, s1mple 2nd, m0NESY 3rd, huNter 4th, jks 5th ez

in 2022 it is impossible to have a tournament winning team with 1 player being a deadweight. just look at teams like faze and ence and i cant think of any more teams

Tbf just in terms of stats Hooxi is next level dead weight. But it‘ll be hard to say how individually impactful he could be in G2.

I mean, it’s still not very clear how age affects the players. karrigan is also 32 and still killing it. Then again, we don’t know how long that will last. Anyways, I like Hooxi‘s style of calling, but he really needs to improve individually. He doesn‘t have to be a good player, but cracking like a 0.90 rating is almost a must if G2 want to be top 1.

True, maybe I‘m worried over nothing. I definitely want them to trial him, but I feel like they should hold off on signing until he has shown his potential.

yeah the rumor was they were going to trial him in the Blast fall groups but next day reports came out hooxi was signed permanently. My guess would be they didn't find any other igl's interested I still think they should just keep aleksib and only bring in jks. But the players know better than us, at least i hope so lol

I think it comes to down to mood inside a team - aleksib is a very capable igl and only idiots call him a shitty caller but if the vibe between players is very bad there is no way to fix it. Most likely G2 players lost faith in aleksib's calling so they had to chop him even if they had no good substitute. Sad for them tbh, it feels like a step backwards.

another reason could be him and rest of the team werent on the same page, aleksib is a more strict tactical igl whick doesnt really fit the g2 core. so they went for a loose igl and someone who's unproven, underwhelming. maybe for less pressure from media idk another thing this is they want quick success so if things dont go their way for the first few months they are gonna make a roster changes it looks like

Karrigan is clearly gonna retire at his peak, it's pretty obvious from interviews - same with rain
2022-07-31 11:09
Karrigan has better rating + godlike calls, is Hooxi going to compensate with calls that are better than karrigan? No. So ask again, does this team want to be top 1? It seems they want to settle with being top 5

Well, it's a gamble. HooXi is not a firepower upgrade over Aleksib and considering we are currently living in the "Firepower" era, having a deadweight for a fifth may be too big of a risk if everything else doesn't work. Thing is, there aren't many options either. ALEX didn't do well with Vitality, fnatic or C9. Snappi is probably the best realistic option. And Hampus would be the dream come true.

From watching some demos on him, it isnt as bad as his rating suggests imo. On T-side he is either the one going in first on executes, or especially early in the default rounds he throws utility for teammates to get into good positions. On CT he is indeed the anchor, so he pretty much has all the "worst" roles in terms of rating. His aim isnt anything special (for being a pro player ofc), but it isn't terrible either. I havent really seen him do any big whiffs. You have to take into account that whenever he is in a duel he very rarely has very favourable ones, since he either rushes in first in executes, or if his team dies in the defaults he is in a man disadvantage situation.

Probably looks like a lot of copium to some since I'm a G2 fan, but I have seen HooXi get so much hate, and I really just want to give this guy a fair chance. A lot of people are already going crazy about it when the team hasnt even played, let alone practice probably since everyone is on vacation

HooXi will provide great spacing on T side and is better at making mid round calls. Something AlexisB and Snappi weren't good at. Even tho HooXi's stats don't show his true potential. He will provide better calling and can frag when needed to. The reason why his K/D is low is because he always tried to make space for his teammates do they could frag out. He sacrificed himself more to make bigger plays for his teammates. There were games he fragged out and some games he ended up being negative but he always created for his team. That why CPHF was able to play well against Faze and beat out many top teams at the PGL major for being a team no one really thought to look at. If he was able to help take CPHF to that high of a level with the lineup he had. Why cant he do well in G2 as well. With a much better team and a better coach.

G2 will most certainly be a constant top 5 contender and maybe they will have the potential to be title contender. Hooxi's addition isn't great but it's not horrible either. Something that i don't understand is that G2 replaced aleksib who is known to have a ruling igling style, with another igl who is known to lead like that. In my eyes hooxi and Aleksib have pretty similar style of play and they approach the game same way. Hooxi and aleksib's only massive difference imo is that aleksi isn't that bad player, ofc he isn't mechanical jesu, but sometimes he can take 25 important frags on a map. I also think that Aleksi could have performed better, but rifle roles you get with niko and hunter being on your team aren't good. Aleksib wasn't great at g2, but I don't think hooxi will make a massive difference either. Only thing I could see changing is the environment and chemistry on the team. Finally i would say Hooxi's addition is weird, but jks' addition i the other hand is the best thing g2 could have done. Jks have shown that he doesn't need best roles and he is very versatile player.

No they dont have the same playstyle, actually its completely different. Hooxi likes to play a loose style of cs and make calls of openings provided by some controlled mid-round aggression AleksiB is the opposite, he likes to micromanage a lot, restricting his star players to the limits of his calls. It works a lot better on lower iq player that dont have the ability to think for themselves like the lineup with the old ence for an example. I think Hooxis playstyle will create much more space for the start on the T side in general compared to Aleksib T side.

Yep I see your point, but looking back to CPH's matches I can only see how system based their style was. Ofc aleksib is one of the most controlling igls out there, but I wouldn't say that hooxi is complitely different. In CPH Roej's and nicoodoz's stats were great and Hooxi used his stars well and that is something I want him to do in G2, but I can't see them winning just with that. Faze for example is a team where every player is put in to a concept and a role, I can't see Niko taking a role like ropz or twistzz have in Faze. That's why I haven't trust in g2 in ages. Hooxi can try what ever concept he wants, but in the end of a day it is all about individual performances. Jks and Monesy need to be the best version of themselves if they want to compete

Well, one player can make the difference. Look at faze before and after ropz.. world of difference. I Think g2 now have all the right omayers positionswise. Jks for jackz was the real game changer for me. As of now i see g2 with better firepowere on paper than faze and navi. If hooxi manages to put m0nesy and niko in the same positions the CF system allowed roej and Jabbi and create the mod round openings that hooxi likes to Call around,this team could be very very dangerous, titel contendors imo. Just imagine the firepower upgrade hooxi Will have in his system.

The firepower upgrade is massive and will make difference. Firepower is a massive thing, but what is the common thing about winning teams, reliable AWPer, monesy isn't there just yet. One round he can take 3 really hard shots, but next round miss pretty easy ones. If g2 wants to compete Monesy needs to be more consistent. If Hooxi gives him keys to open up the game, I can see that happening, but Niko being on the team star roles are more likely to be Niko's. And this has been problem in every team Niko has played except Oskar in mouse, Guardian, kenny and Amanek (who isn't good awper what so ever) have played worse with Niko. I won't blame Niko alone there is more than just that, roles and that kind of stuff, but there is something in niko's game style that hurts his AWPer's performance level.

I agree, M0nesy need to hit consistensy for the team to peek to its full potential. The beauty of it is, he only needs to play his own game, and dont have shoes to fill. Nik0 and hunter (and jks) will do the bulge of the heavy lifting, m0nesy only need to chime in. If he has a mamouth preformance, it should be a win for g2 i reckon. I think nik0 never played with a world class awp yet before m0nesy. He played with broky when he was just picked by nik0 himself at FPL, in his early stages of his career. AMANEK, not even close to be a T1 awp., and kennyS at the very end of his career, going down statwise like JACKZ. I Think with the natural progess G2 will have, m0nesy should be able to evolve and shine to his full potential. Hooxi knows how to develop young players as proven in his time with CF and also knows how to set up his star players, even at the cost of his own ratings - indeed a solid IGL that fit the needs of G2 and their develoment as a team

I think HooXi is going to be a better fit than AleksiB was for G2. I think he will play to a system that works for NiKo and M0nesy. If the JKS rumors are true, all HooXi needs to do is throw util and be bait beyond calling. I'm not saying they will win tournaments. But I think they will have better performances.
