Was -Jackz smart?
 | 
Germany sterzik 
Was cutting Jackz a good idea? Im personally split on it, he was a very strong, old school-pure support player with much more impact than the stats suggestes imo, great anker and a veteran with a lot of experience, especially on LAN and i really dont feel like he was in any way whatsoever an issue on G2, in the world of old school support players and from watching a couple of his demos a while back, i can confidently say that hes not quite what perfecto is on navi, but hes pretty close to that. Overall i think he could have been a pretty valueable piece in this G2 rebuild and i really dont see how well somebody like Jks is going to fit into those CT anker roles/T-side entry/support duties. Especially with the hooxi signing this is another G2 recipe for disaster imo, Jks is everything but a very versataile player that adapts well to new roles, he needs his space on a team and i dont see how theyre going to provide that for him. Idk maybe they prove me wrong, lets see by december.

basically yeki says that if you take a look at jackz demos he doesn't need to do anything but shoot heads, he doesn't need to think or setup his teammates with nades, even if you have shit roles you can still be good at those roles

You said jackz is versatile. I am saying amanek was a better pick over him. Something also true is that jackz was sporting a .90 rating for the year. Jks is an upgrade in every sense. This most likely wouldn't even be a discussion if amanek was chosen over jackz to stay on the team because he is a much better support player

Jackzs is superior to amanek in the roles that they needed him for and yea, jks is a better player than jackz, what that ignores is that jackz played hard support and Jks also had a 0.9 rating on complexity and was basically a forgotten about has-been until katowice.

Do you wanna realize the utter shit roles jks was put in? Or just ignore that because apparently it means nothing. Jks was playing roles he was not comfortable with, there were role clashes, his stint in complexity is not at all an accurate representation of the kind of player he is If you wanna tout jackz as this extremely intelligent and effective support player you clearly have no idea about the game at all and I feel very sorry for you!

Ok, 1)thats delusional and 2) my entire point. They need to fill the roles left open by jackz, which are btw far shittier than anything he had to deal with in Col, so either the big stars in niko and hunter sacrifice a fair bit or Jks is probably going to find himself in the position of the 0.9 rating player too.

This is kind a funny because Jackz definitely lacks things what you need from support players. He has good aim (no one can deny that) but his gamesense is kind a bad.

You’re beyond delusional if you think jackz was in anyway a good anchor
2022-08-11 15:25
The only reason amanek wasn't preferred over jackz was because of hunter who was a lost sheep without jackz. So they ditched ama. He'd have been really good rolewise. One of the best support players. What boggles my mind is why vitality didn't ama in place of shox.

JKS had terrible roles in complexity but still managed to be over 1.0 in rating as a pure support player. He’s also a fantastic anchor, way better than JaCkz at it. The biggest reason +jks is an improvement is that xtqz said that +jks will free up hunter to play roles he likes more which will make jks a support lurker that will clutch up close rounds for them.

And Ct anchor goes to who? Hooxi? Whos going to play Entry sup on T? Hunter? Your just crating a scenario in which another player will be forced into that 0.9 rating category, most likely Jks. Yea nice stats, in 10x better roles than jackz btw:hltv.org/stats/players/4679/jks?startDat..

hooxi and jks will be anchors Niko hunter rot, jks lurk t side, hooxi entry hunter trader/playmaker, NiKo playmaker
2022-08-11 10:13
As I said, jks is a great anchor and will easily just take over all JaCkz ct positions while hooxie probably takes aleksiBs. And regarding entries it will be done by all of the players, jks is mostly a lurker but not as a star, he will be going first when hunter and niko doesn’t want and with decent success as you saw in his short stint with FaZe. Hooxie will take on most off them though. hltv.org/stats/players/284/jackz?startDa.. These stats are way worse than jks stats for 2021. And the 2021 stats isnt a good reflection of how good jks is. My guess is that he will have a slightly positive K/D rating and around a 1.04-1.08 rating for them. Nothing spectacular but decent nonetheless. Stats isn’t everything but he will be an improvement.

Well i do understand you. Its a massive risk to go for hooxie as igl but it will hopefully go alright.

No, jackz is not a good anchor and jks is one of the best anchors in the game right now. Besides, jackz is only an entry and due to role changes they need a new lurker anyway, which meant that either Niko had to igl or their igl had to be a lurker (which is a stupid role for an igl)

Oldschool support player - he was messing a lot of nades and had problems with comms. JKS is an upgrade experience-wise and comm-wise. You could make an argument that jackz's aim is better. You can also argue that if jackz was so integral when it comes to the team vibe, removing him and adding a quiet guy like JKS might result in the team vibe being dry and players going full emo-ELiGe and refuse to talk.

I am also split on it, but imo your points as to why are completely false. JACKZ was an OK anchor, but not great. jks is known for being one of the best anchors in the game so on CT side this is a huge upgrade. T-side is the only questionmark, because we don’t know yet what roles the players will play. huNter used to lurk, but it has been indicated that he will switch. Who will be in the pack taking sites? HooXi entry with NiKo and m0nesy is possible and then have huNter being more supportive. Its also possible that NiKo will entry, together with huNter and m0nesy with HooXi supporting more which is more similar to what he did in ChpF
