secondary awping sure, primary awper you need to have good positioning and predicting, being in the place where most stuff happens. sure he’s good at awping but he’ll have to learn all this in a short amount of time. but from the nuke game vs astralis, hampus was still the player in yard and rez in ramp, so they might have him playing the same roles just with the awp

like always, if lucky opponents 1/8 and then quick 0-2 by some team like G2 AT RMR they qualify for sure

2022-10-04 01:46
dont get why everyone thinks rez will be bad on awp. its alot easier to be consistent on awp then rifle. I see rez becoming a serious top 5 awper in the scene.

Top 5 is optimistic, but I don’t think he will be bad
2022-10-04 01:56
Top 5 seems generous, but I'm curious if moving to the AWP is what Rez needs to become consistent. Tbh I'm keeping my expectations in check, but I hope it works out.
2022-10-04 02:16
no chance hes better than s1mple degster m0nesy broky zywoo sh1ro in my opinion, but i am a rez stan and i think he can be good. Top 10 for sure
2022-10-04 02:52
There's no way being an awper is easier, with a rifle you can fail one or two shots, but with awp you whiff and you are doomed, awp is more expensive, so it needs better economy management, can't be too aggressive or too pasive, awp and rifle are completely different worlds

Top5? I mean you can say he's going to be decent/good, but come on. you're putting him at the same level as S1mple Zywoo sh1ro, m0nesy broky etc..

I hope they let rez rifle and put hampus as a support/passive awp. I think hampus can make it work, as he is very inteligent player with good aim. Rez on the other hand can be one of the world best rifles and would be wasted as an awp.

Rez has played star rifler role for years already and theres not much to show for. He can be the best rifler ever for 1 map and then suck on the other. Its not like he's new player or anything with a lot of room to improve, we've seen what he has to offer on that regard.

People are underestimating how bad plopski was. Whenever he got in a 1 v 2 or 1 v 3 clutch you already knew which team was going to win. Shit first bullet accuracy + always has a tendency to panic

luckily for them they ve got group a so they have a chance to qualify
2022-10-04 02:00
dk but i put rez with awper role on my fantasy so provide, faze g2 c9 only teams that nip can't defeat. Then fnatic and astralis is a 50/50 they are both bad rn
2022-10-04 02:05
i believe in rez's awp and hampus's fragging. not sure if i believe in aleksib but i hope he does well
2022-10-04 02:12
I'm keeping my expectations low. I'm a fan of Hampus and I've supported the NIP boys in the past, but I'm loosing hope in this project.

Boombl4 had multiple tournament victories and a major. AleksiB is overrated by kids like you who drool over his cool looks and stuff like that. We've seen Aleksib fail time and time again. Just because he made one major final doesn't mean he's a good IGL. He is one of the worst IGL in the scene right now.

I don’t even know how to respond to people like you, I never once drooled over aleksi, nor have I mentioned him in this thread. And last time I checked, boombl4 didn’t have much success until he got s1mple and the rest of the navi gang to carry his ass. I mean he was only really relevant while on navi, and he probably won’t be relevant again.

I mean if you want to compare igl abilities. Boombitch was literally irrelevant before joining navi. He didn’t really have any achievements. If he was such good igl, he should have been able to bring his previous teams into the limelight.

Glaive was irrelevant before joining Astralis. Also love the copium, Navi achievements do not count because reasons. What matters is your own criteria that you pulled out of your ass to try to argue that aleksib is better. Given firepower, aleksib got 0 titles, while boomich won every possible title in CSGO. Therefore boomich >aleksi. Keep your cope explanations to yourself.

That's the most bullshit take I have ever seen. LOL. Do you even know the reason behind so many igls getting kicked and replaced? Maybe cause coaches were able to communicate with the teams and therefore the role of igl was not needed. Not to mention that there are countless interviews with players stating that igling and methodical cs really began with astralis. Like i get it, you are old, and you have been around for a while, but please at least learn the history of csgo before coming on here to argue.

They can reach till playoffs tbh, but Rez needs to play good with Awp.
2022-10-05 14:02
they will beat bne for sure they will go 3-0 or 3-2
2022-10-05 14:09
3-2 imo. They have enough firepower to qualifty for the major. The last bo3 will br scrappy.
2022-10-05 14:09
What people DON'T seem to think about: AleksiB = Great micro managing IGL with a strong voice is perfect for leading obedient swedes, also decent fragging capabilites, slight upgrade firepowerwise from plopski Hampus = Put on good numbers as IGL, will probably find even more impact now but also his experience as a IGL makes him quite capable of having valuable input mid round Es3tag = Has since he joined been praised for his comms and also provides valuable input mid round Brollan = Very smart player, rarely overpeeks and has the balls to go for entrys Rez = Will probably do a decent job as an awper, his mechanics are just that good and he'll probably put on some highlights but I don't expect him to be very consistent. Definitely a better awper than es3tag. So a better awper, slightly better overall firepower due to es3tag being a better rifler than awper and aleksi better than plopski. Teamplay probably also going to be better due to more experienced and naturally better IGL in Aleksi with valuable input from hampus and es3tag. If they can adapt to english smooth enough (swedes are usually good at english from their teens, shouldn't be too much of a problem) they should be better than they've been TLDR; Better firepower, more experienced IGL, better awper = better NiP
2022-10-05 14:18
they should 100% pass rmr, and i think they should be doing ok in the major as they have like 3 weeks prep after this
