jks on Complexity

United States vip3r_k1ng 
As a disclaimer I am a jks fan, he is my favorite player and has been for a long time, that being said, i’m doing my best to come into this with an objective eye and to just look at the stats and try to find out what really happened with jks on Complexity, I haven’t watched all of his demos and seen all of his whiffs and his one taps, this is completely based on his HLTV ratings jks played 27 events with on his time with Complexity, let's analyze them He played a grand total of 4 events with Complexity before the team weren't able to field all 5 of their players, of these 4 events jks had an individual rating of : 1.07 @ BLAST Premier Fall Series 2020 In his first event with Complexity jks would finish 2nd on his team in rating coming behind blameF with a 1.26 rating, in his first series in Vitality he would finish with a 1.05 rating 1.11 @ IEM Beijing-Haidian 2020 Europe jks would put up great performances against teams such as NaVi and BIG, he would put up an incredible 1.61 rating against BIG on nuke and 1.41 vs NaVi on mirage, he would fall off during Complexity’s only loss against Vitality with a rating of 0.89 and 0.84 1.03 @ BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Showdown Only playing 2 matches during this event jks would put up good numbers vs Sprout with a 1.31 and 1.13 rating, another good performance came on nuke against Cloud9 with a 1.31 rating while going relatively silent the rest of the series with 0.66 and 0.88 ratings 0.88 @ DreamHack Masters 2020 Europe This was a poor event by jks, 2 good performances would save him from a much worse rating, a 1.58 rating vs FaZe and 1.23 vs ENCE would bring his rating up, although he would come close to being positive again with a 0.99 rating in a double overtime map vs FaZe, those 2 maps would be his only 2 positive maps of the event The next 3 events would be played with stand-ins for AWPers due to poizon's absence, over these 3 events jks would post ratings of: 0.96 @ IEM Global Challenge 2020 himself being the highest rated member on Col during this event, next closest being blameF and k0nfig both at 0.81 0.82 @ BLAST Premier Global Final 2020 the lowest on Col with k0nfig ahead of him at 0.84 0.77 @ cs_summit 7 he had a 0.37 rating on overpass vs Dignitas with a k/d of 5/18 and 32 adr, an awful performance that made an event that was too awful look horrid for him, his other 3 map ratings were 0.99, 0.95 and 0.65 Then poizon returned, the next events would look like this: 1.24 @ BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2021 Col would not drop a map over their 3 series stint at the Blast Premier Spring Groups 2021, jks, while having a 1.24 rating would still only be the third ranked member of Col as k0nfig and blameF each had ratings of 1.35 for k0nfig and 1.31 for blameF 0.92 @ IEM Katowice 2021 Play-In Complexity would narrowly get eliminated by MOUZ, after losing in overtime on map 2 (Col won map 1) Complexity would self destruct on map 3, jks had a rating of 0.27, RUSH with 0.39, blameF with 0.61 and k0nfig with 0.51, the only Col member that didn't log off after losing map 2 was poizon who had a rating of 1.03, if we remove this one incredibly awful map from this event jks would have had a rating of 1.03 1.07 @ DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 Europe Col won a close series vs Movistar Riders and crushed OG, jks would have a rating of 1.52 and 1.23 against OG, he would put up a good 1.18 rating against Movistar Riders on the map Col won while putting up a poor 0.66 rating on the map Col lost 1.00 @ ESL Pro League Season 13 He played 19 maps at this event and had a couple of really nice stand out performances putting up 1.42 against NaVi, 1.28 vs Renegades and 1.35 vs OG on the other side he also had a rather poor performances on both maps vs BIG with a 0.60 rating on Dust 2 and 0.70 on mirage 1.06 @ Funspark ULTI 2020 Europe Final He was the 3rd rated Col player behind blameF who had a 1.08 rating this event, a 0.78 rating vs HAVU in a map Complexity won was what stopped him from having a rating of 1.12 1.02 @ Flashpoint 3 Closed Qualifier Once again the 3rd rated player on Complexity, this time by a much wider margin though blameF was ahead of him at 1.24 and RUSH behind him at 0.92, his rating this event was boosted by really good performances against GameAgents having a 1.37 and 1.33 rating on the two maps and being dragged down a bit by a 0.57 rating against MOUZ 1.13 @ DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 jks hard carried Col to their only map win of this whole event, he put up a 1.49 rating vs Vitality, jks would continue to play well but Col still lost their next Bo3s 0-2, jks had a rating of 1.23 and 1.24 against FURIA in an 0-2 match, he did dip with a 0.72 and 1.02 rating vs Astralis 1.04 @ Flashpoint 3 In this event jks put up a poor performance against Heroic and BIG while putting up good ratings against Anonymo (1.58 and 1.33), Sprout and fnatic, jks was hot and cold this event every map he was either 1.10 or above or 0.86 or below with 2 maps being exceptions (0.96 vs BIG and 1.07 vs FPX) 1.14 @ IEM Summer 2021 jks was the highest rated player on Complexity this event, 2nd closest being blameF at 1.08, over the 9 maps played jks dropped below a 1 rating twice (0.90 vs Vitality and 0.76 vs Gambit and had 5 maps above 1.2 rating (1.22 in an overtime game vs Sprout, 1.24 vs Sprout, 1.24 vs FPX, 1.36 vs FPX, 1.38 vs Gambit) this was tied for his 2nd best tournament for Col 1.01 @ BLAST Premier Spring Final 2021 During this event jks had 2 maps below 1 rating (0.66 vs G2 and 0.91 vs Gambit) and 3 maps at or above 1.15 rating (1.15 vs G2, 1.18 vs NiP and 1.19 vs NiP) 0.96 @ Spring Sweet Spring 3 he played rather poorly this event having more maps in the red rather than positive, that being said Complexity only lost one map this whole event, a 16-2 loss vs 1WIN where jks had a 0.48 rating, this would be the only event Complexity would win with jks on the roster 1.01 @ IEM Cologne 2021 Play-In jks put up good numbers against the lesser opponents of LDLC and ViCi with ratings of 1.25 and 1.17 vs LDLC and 1.15 vs ViCi while getting rekt vs FaZe losing 0-2 with jks having ratings of 0.78 and 0.76 0.97 @ IEM Cologne 2021 Complexity would exit this event 0-2 with consecutive Bo3 loses to G2 and Virtus.pro, jks would be tied for the 2nd highest rated player for Col alongside k0nfig, the rating leader would also be the leader of the team blameF with a 1.18 rating, the only Col player with a positive rating, jks played rather poorly on all but two maps against Virtus.pro where he put up a 1.48 rating on mirage and 1.05 on Dust 2 in an overtime loss, this would be the last event before Complexity would replace RUSH with es3tag 1.02 @ ESL Pro League Season 14 Complexity would field NaToSaphiX as a stand-in for star player k0nfig at this event, this was another hot and cold event for jks, of his 16 maps played he had a positive rating for exactly half of them, when played well, he played really well putting up a 1.41 rating vs forZe, 1.29 and 1.18 vs G2, 1.26 vs Virtus.pro and 1.22 vs Vitality this would coincide with 8 matches under a 1 rating staying around the high 0.8s in rating with the exceptions of a 0.99 rating vs forZe, 0.75 vs G2 and 0.70 vs Vitality 1.05 @ BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2021 This was coldzera’s first game with Complexity, this would be the event where their 0-16 loss to FaZe was recorded, jks would go 5-16 with a 0.26 rating, this was extremely unfortunate for him considering he was having a great event before this game, jks put up a 1.31 rating vs FaZe and a 1.29 rating vs FaZe on ancient, the map Col would later on lose without winning a round, he would also put up a 1.27 rating vs NaVi, 1.30 rating on map 1 vs FaZe, 1.18 rating on map 2 vs FaZe, its very unfortunate it would boil down to a 0.26 rating on the third map 1.04 @ IEM Fall 2021 Europe jks would be the 2nd highest rated player on Col during this event, only behind coldzera with a 1.09, this was massively boosted by a 1.86 rating vs Endpoint, Complexity would lose every other map and jks would only go positive once more with a 1.01 rating vs Astralis in a 16-14 loss 1.08 @ BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2021 Once again jks would be the 2nd rated player for Col, this time by a significant wider margin though, blameF would finish with a 1.28 rating, every other Col player would finish negative, during this event Complexity would be 16-0’d once again, this time by OG on mirage, he would once again finish 5-16, this time with a rating of 0.38, this would drag down his rating from earlier good performances against MiBR with a 1.58 on overpass and 1.42 on nuke 0.79 @ IEM Winter 2021 Europe Closed Qualifier This would be one of jks’ worst performances on Complexity, it would also be his last, even more unfortunately he would still finish 2nd in rating on his team, only blameF would put up a rating equal to or better than 0.79 with a rating of 0.85, Complexity did not win more than 11 rounds on a map, the maps would finish 16-5, 16-6, 16-5 and 16-11, on these 4 maps jks would go positive twice with 1.00 and 1.20 and go negative twice with 0.58 and 0.32, an unfortunate end to an unfortunate stint with Complexity After going through all of jks’ performances for Complexity I’d say he performed consistently as the third or fourth best player for Col where I believe he was supposed to be, k0nfig reached an incredibly high level while on Complexity and blameF is an incredibly talented star player himself, poizon was inconsistent with the AWP but was also able to put up star performances from time to time. jks would average a 1.01 rating over his total 27 events with Complexity, his low points were low but his high points were really high, in a system more set up for jks to perform. Comparing him to his Complexity teammates, he finished rated the best player on Col twice, the second best player 5 times, the third best player 6 times, the fourth best player, the fourth best player 8 times and the worst player on Complexity 3 times. I believe he can rise to a higher level like we saw with him on 100 Thieves and Renegades, he obviously cannot be the star on a team with NiKo, huNter- and m0nesy but if he receives the roles he enjoys he will be a good player for G2 Esports and an improvement over JACKZ

1.01 is damn awful considering how good he used to be, and how high the salary was.

I agree that he was paid too much to be a player that averaged 1.01 but to be fair how would he continue to be the star he was on 100 Thieves and Renegades, before Complexity the best player he ever played with was jkaem, going to a team with players like blameF, k0nfig and poizon means the system isn't as focused on jks, should he have played better, probably yeah, should we have expected him to be as good as he was on 100 Thieves and Renegades, probably not

Eh guys like interz and perfecto average rating similar all the time and that’s who jks roles were most silimar to. He was a pure support player in complexity. People fixate on stats because they didn’t watch the games. I genuinely do not understand how people think you could remove a pure support like oBo and put in a star player like jks and expect His stats not to take a hit. There are currently 2 top 15 teams in the world who have 3 riflers with a 1.05 rating or above (based on 2022 stats while in that team). It’s quite obviously not the standard. Only 1 team in the top 10 has 3 rifler with a 1.05 rating. Faze. There are certain things that are necessary for the structure of a team but people just stare at HLTV rating and disregard any actual analysis of WHY it is the way it is. They will tell you jks played bad but can’t name a single site he plays lol

Didn't read all that wall of text but I do hope he does well in G2. At least he finally has a solid team that has potential (at least on paper) to contend for titles. But it kinda depends a lot on what hooxi brings to the table.
2022-08-13 21:50
1 reply
I bet he'll do really well, hes a good player being put on a good team as long as they figure out the igl problems i think G2 will have a lot of success with this lineup
2022-08-13 22:24
didnt read but you better not be talking shit about the boy Benjamin "blameF" Bremer
2022-08-13 22:27
1 reply
Actually I didn't mention blameF much, I mentioned him mostly when jks was the 2nd best player on Col at a tournament and blameF was the best and only then to contrast blameF's numbers to jks'. I didn't talk about the specific spots jks played or role clashes with blameF or his style of IGL'ing, at the end of the day jks was getting a paycheck from Complexity and it was his job to do as best as possible whatever role or situation he was put into, was he being underutilized and put out of his comfort zone? I think so but that's not the conversation im trying to have with this post.
2022-08-14 02:44
I read it just out of respect that you did that much reasearch on him. That being said jks did not prove him self to be elite tier player on COL but COL did not prove themself as an elite tier team. He showed alot promise on Faze and that is in no small part on karigan and his leadership, what the numbers show us is that jks is a player that benefits from structure in his team and relies alot on his teamates(especialy igl), that is a good thing bc CS is a 5 player game. I think he will slot in nicely on G2, he seems like a player that can get things done. Even if he has a slow start the structure G2 have (should have with ther experience and XTQZ even tho they have a new IGL)and their stars should carry him over to form. I have high hopes for him.

Thank you for reading! I agree, jks isn't a top 10 player in the world, I think his 15 spot in 2019 and 19 spot in 2020 were earned but he's not the best player on his team anymore. I really hope HooXi can step up and be a good IGL for G2 because jks needs that. IMO G2 has a good chance to be the top team with a roster like this but I think a lot of it hinges on HooXi more than jks.
2022-08-14 02:47
+1 Respect on the hard work, for this change in G2 I think it isn't a massive blockbuster move like some are saying but without a doubt I believe it is a solid upgrade over Jackz. I believe G2 will be successful if HooXi's calling is on point and a good fit for the team and the stars are motivated to preform.
2022-08-14 03:41
jks is that you?
2022-08-14 03:44
The issue is that JKS replaced this hltv.org/stats/players/14614/obo?teamId=.. so we compare it to oBo, nothing else.
