Never understood why Taco and Zews did that. Replace Taco with Stewie and Liquid would still have been just as good in 2019, stewie was a toxic bot.

He sucked as an IGL for c9 and Liquid. If Tarik is a better IGL than Stewie I don't care what his teammates say I don't believe he's adding a lot of input. Liquid was also really tactical in 2018 without him.

Well, not that Kjaerbye had any better options

I disagree he got a bunch of decent players and threw them together hoping they would have team chem. Where chaos were already a team with a good core that beat mibr and maybe needed a IGL and awp upgrade.

They go from being a decent team to being arguably the best team of 2019 right after removing him, that team wasn't able to win a single event with him and almost immediately after dropping him and getting Stewie2k they start to win. I don't think people talk enough about how bad his signing was

They went on to be the team that did break the Astralis era, or at least crack it. That was because they got someone who wasn't TACO joined. TACO's performance at the final of ECS S5 still haunts me, they most certainly could have won something had they had a better 5th (as shown in 2019). TACO (and steel) were both guys holding Liquid back

As all the other players were getting better and becoming elite level talents, they still weren’t able to close out an event. Once taco was removed they became one of if not the best team in the world. It says something when almost immediately after you’re removed the team gets unimaginably better
2023-02-04 00:42
They were top 4: FaZe made major final and won a few tournaments iirc like Sydney, Belo Horizonte etc NaVi won Cologne and starseries etc Liquid didn't win anything. Just consistently 2nd.

do you even remember how trash mibr was after stewie and tarik left? With them they actually made QF and SF sometimes against prime Astralis. After they went full Brazilian they didnt win anything nor placed high for like 2-3 years lmao
2023-02-01 02:02
1 reply
MIBR made top 4 at a major, top 4 at Sydney, and top 4 in Chicago after he got dropped. The team wasn't a championship level team anymore, but Stewie was certainly holding them back from ever making a final or event win. I think if they still had a good lineup and never signed stewie they could have fluked a tournament. Coldzera was still great and the others were alright, it just didn't mesh with Stew
2023-02-01 02:12
MIBR were fucked by the fact that their IGL was also their AWPer. This is why I'll never be a fan of it because if your AWPer isn't fragging well enough and/or his calling isnt good you're screwed because you'll also have to most likely replace 2 players instead of 1 since AWP IGLs are scarce asf
2023-02-01 02:18
c9 collossus on top for sure jesus that godsent fnatic shuffles were awful, forgot that it even happened i would not count taco to liquid as a bad signing, since u didnt have high expectations in him, and he didnt do terrible as a support snax actually wasnt so bad of a signing itself, but considering they lost styko for him was really, really bad
2023-02-01 04:20
2 replies
Ya there has been pushback about me including TACO, but I did it because of how Liquid just failed completely to accomplish any tournament victory, but once he was gone they began to finally win. For me its in the same vein as aleksib in G2, sure they had some good places but that team is made to win, anything less is unacceptable. I have nothing against snax he was a super good player, but when they signed him the entire chemistry of that team just fell apart.
2023-02-01 04:23
1 reply
yep, but that wasnt mainly because of snax, they just got rid of player u cant get rid of, styko to mouz was what maden is to ence, teses to heroic or perfecto to navi, u cant find players like these easily and they glue ur team together, my point is snax wasnt a complete failure of a move and he actually would be a fine addition to mouz if u gave him time at that moment to adapt playing bitch roles instead of expecting of him performing like styko from the start

How I see it, bad signing is something that looks bad already when the signing happens and then turns out to be just that. So I wouldn't qualify something like Guardian to Navi as that, even though its close. Junior to Furia, Gade to Big, Kjaerby to Faze these are bad signings.

Coldzera to FaZe Device to NIP Kjaerbye to North Navi removing Zeus (could've worked, but valve changed coach rules. But it still counts) Ence removing AleksiB (and him knowing it in the middle of a major while being #2 in the world lmao) Woxic to C9 (1.00 rating overall at c9 as an awper that's just worse than cerq + toxic as fuck) Notable mentions : Snax to mousesports (they did win a tier 1 event tho, but because buyout was $300k he's here. Cerq not getting benched sooner. FaZe and their search for an igl when Karrigan was kicked.

2023-02-01 04:35
Fnatic signing wenton, EnVyUs adding DEV1L, Cloud9 signing Slemmy, Zellsis, there were also several swedish lineups I looked forward to that either disbanded before they played or looked terrible, for instance Ancient announced a lineup with pronax, peppzor, robiin, twist, znajder if I recall correctly, that never played a single map.
