Does hooxi deserve this chance?
 | 
United States snakedrake 
I personally don’t believe he has earned this chance, yes I understand his team punched above there weight and did solid, but this team did, himself was a liability on the server, he is in his late 20s and has a average rating of .87 that’s vs lower talent as well, now on G2 I just don’t see him being very effective, yes you have a lot of firepower but so does faze, Navi, liquid, Cloud9 and vitality not to mention the other teams who seem to play very well without it, in all I think it’s a bad move

yeah considering that G2 wants to win trophies and majors i don't see the rationale behind this decision other than hurr durr danish igl he must be good
2022-08-18 22:53
that's hunden lvls of rating
2022-08-18 23:28
"27 years old, no trophies" thats exactly what G2 needed, their player words. XDDDD

and now they're losing to falcons and almost endpoint. The fnatic team with smooya + alex + mezii + brollan + krimz was amazingly good just personalities prevented it from achieving more
2022-08-18 22:51
I genuinely do not believe that Alex would do any better than Hooxi. Boombl4 is more debatable but there are valid reasons that made a signing risky in their own right. But in the end I think it is completely unnecessary to get into this discussion before seeing the first one or two tournaments with this new lineups

you're talking about positions being debatable but you dont even explain why you think hooxi who is far less accomplished and able to kill than alex could be better...
2022-08-18 22:52
Rather get Hooxi than a guy who failed in his 2 last projects and a guy who is a PR nightmare and got carried by B1ad3

I'm not fully sold on Hooxi myself but the igl market is rough these days, Alex or Boombl4 aren't clear upgrades to him igl wise and they will have done their due diligence to check out all the options and find who is best suited for them
2022-08-18 22:53
You deadass blaming c9 on him?

I think A lot of you overestimate what Boombl4 actually did. From interviews the consensus of Navi is blade does the strats for the most part of Boombl4 just kept them in line. And Alex hasn't played very recently so imagine if G2 signed two relatively inactive players with JKS and Alex. Would've been a huge gamble... And don't get me wrong I don't see much coming from Hooxi in particular at all but there's no good options IMO, as long as he implements a strong game plan with good midrounds G2 should play well

theres only so much in terms of strats someone can do as a coach when the role is so limited, there is undeniably implementation and decision making performed by boombl4 that enables his team and executes those strategies which I doubt he was detached from creating as you've proposed. You are making a lot of condescending assumptions about an igl that has achieved so much by working on incomplete allegations...
2022-08-18 22:54
LOL boombl4. You are delusional if you think he’s a “capable” igl
2022-08-18 22:50
nah not alex. dude literally was made by zywoo
2022-10-07 22:07
alex isnt a capable igl

British ALEX, Spanish alex, AZR, siuhy, ztr, perhaps Maze from fnatic Rising - all of them would've been more interesting options.

half of them is troll, g2 wouldnt get a young igl who didnt experience any t1~ Doubt spanish alex would leave movistar, british one is a joke with 2 failed projects edit: i really hope g2 gets far this tourney just to shut those hooxi haters, yes he's super trash but if he gets his team winning who cares, might be a karrigan v2
2022-08-18 22:57
Irrelevant to say and post this now that papers are already signed, now wait and see how G2 will be with him as IGL
2022-08-18 22:42
Don't worry, niko will teach him to click head
2022-08-18 22:42
you are sleeping on him, he will avg 0.60 rating in Blast but they will win all their games :-)

I think kicking aleksiB was a bad move, jackz was the problem and he got replaced by great player. Aleksib is way better than hooxi imo.

not really a matter of 'better'. i think aleksi's calling style just doesnt fit with the stars on g2
2022-08-18 23:22
They simply didn't want to keep going with AleksiB as IGL. I don't see why Hooxi can't bring as much success as AleksiB did.

ofc he does

i agree but g2 didn't really have many options so it was pretty lucky for him
2022-08-18 23:10
He's a nice lad and has good CS brain but he doesn't have aim for tier 1 CS. He's a bit like Zeus was in 2019 except not a legend and multiple major winner

It's still early days so I'd give the guy a few more events to show what he's got. But generally speaking the guy had like 0.8 rating over 2021 (same as Zeus in 2019). He needs to step up from that or just have an insane tactical input to remain long term in this roster.
2022-10-01 23:56
-1 Its Hooxi's world You're just living in it
2022-10-01 23:54
What is wrong with people on hltv? They want to kick people after one two tournaments. I honestly think aleksi would’ve been better with jks but hooxi deserves more time. At least two season
