Tbh, it's probably because his sponsors force him to use a DeathAdder rather than his preffered 3.0.
Plus, he is still ridiculous at the game. Just not as good as he was at Prague.
"ARABIA ALL STARS" , thats why
ot: fuck razer da
i dont think that he lost his skill at all.he was the best player from VG last tournament and he is 5th best player in general stat wise...
vg need new igl imo
When he was in IMG he was relied upon to get frags. Joined VG and the team is more balanced frag wise.
The mouse may be part of the problem because I know the DA is heavier and bulkier than 3.0, even though the new DA is supposedly slightly lighter.
Another thing is maybe the team composition, like f0rest mentioned he might not fit into the team as well as RPK did so maybe that is hindering his fragging skills slightly as well.
He is playing well, he is just an aggressive frag whore and either Ex6 isn't making the right strats to fit his playstyle, or ScreaM is frag hunting and pushing out of position, and thats why they are getting shite results. In my opinion, ofcourse :)
He's still crazy.. Have you seen his p250 oneshots, they are crazy
He didn't lose his skill, he's still a beast, just not as dominant as before.
You're free to check the stats. In Prague 69,65% of his 257 frags were headshots, in Vienna 69,69% of his headshots 254 frags were headshots. Just to compare, f0rest has scored 63,21% out of 212 frags in Prague and 54,11% out of 146 frags in Vienna. Getright scored 43,59% headshots out of 273 frags in Prague and 58,17% out of 153 in Vienna. This means he's just as mad a headshotter as he was before; he's also very stable.
The reason why you don't see him destroying other teams singlehandedly anymore is that recoil update. It really bottlenecked the skillcap. Before the update recoil was very difficult to control, and people with great raw aim like ScreaM could easily kill people who were panicspraying at him.
Most people are simply bad at tapping/bursting or start spraying instead of tapping/bursting because they're nervous (yes, even top players often start spraying when it would've been better to tap). Most people could only score frags by spraying, so they were whining and asking for an easier recoil.
After the update spraying was made easier, and people like ScreaM stopped having an edge over sprayers.
Personally I think recoil should've stayed the way it was. I never liked the fact that spraying was OP in 1.6, a perfect Counter-Strike game should favor aiming over spraying.
TL;DR: ScreaM is just as good an aimer as before, but the update made his playstyle not as strong. before the update tapping&bursting > spraying, after the update spraying > tapping/bursting
Ex6tenz forcing him to use 2 cans of hairgel each day so he fits in the team for photos and such. This made his mouse so slippery that he cant play as good as he used to do
"fall in skill" -> still top5 player at mad catz vienna
New Role, new team, Whole New Level and Way Higher Goals, I think he just needs some time. After all he is replacing someone who can not be replaced. or not ? will see...
In ex6 we trust.
scream died with the recoil patch
VeryGames ScreaM * Razer vs Anexis (k, a, d, ratio) 7 1 16 0.44
good to see f0rest doing a interview.. epic beard!
He was amazing, you are dumb. delete your operating systems asap and throw your tablet and phone out the window. If you live on the ground floor then get to the roof first.
he have 70% HS rate in Vienna last weekend. he ist by far best "hs aimer" in the world
how can he fall in skill
check statistics on cadred ...
scream dont lose his skill just he dont give so much HS
what are you talking about? what you expect to kill all 5 in every round vs top teams.. he is a beast !! he prove himself on mad catz.. stop talk bullshit...
this is stupid threat.. delete pls stupid guy...
maybe he changed position in VG...
Rpk was and will still belong the best french cs player(any versions) of all time
VG just don't know how to use him properly.
Because he isn't the only player on his team with top level skill anymore... it was the same situation as every other top player before he is "discovered" and joins a big team... he was the clear standout player from his previous teams, now he has kennyS, NPK, etc... to take kills from him, and he is player a higher % of top level teams. ScreaM was overrated from the beginning, people on this website seriously never learn, makes me think the average age of a fan must be getting lower and lower, because people use the intellect of an 8 year old. Clearly ScreaM's stats were going to level off when joining VG, and the ability for a few nice clips to make people think a player is godlike is absolutely pathetic, another thing that added to ScreaM's appeal to stupid fanboys.
i think his new mouse is the reason.
the skill level of opponents is rising
The exact same thing happened to Rpk when he join VG (in css). The play style of Ex6TenZ is really different from what they had before (ozstriker for scream, krl for rpk).
Now he can't run everywhere and kill everybody, the team play is more "collective", every player has a specific role.
It's just a matter of time imho.
VG still needing changes and it's not ScreaM fault.
guess that in VG he cant play like he was used to....now in VG he has to be more teamplayer than he was in past...and in VG there is more presure for good results
