At cologne he had some fucking amazing games, but being a pro ain't about "moments" its about being good when it gets really hard, and Maniac just aint better than a player like ScreaM
80% of the games he plays he sucks though.. he's at the same level as GMX...
hes still better at lan when the pressure is real.
But ScreaM is amazing at lan and its sad that he cant show his skill at 100%..
he shouldve just stfu about scream if he cant take the hate people were talking shit about him even before those statements about scream ofc its worse now
scream instead of rpk would make more sense. disagree with swapping for maniac.
What makes me sad that people hold maniac responsible that scream isnt in titan. While evryone knows its ex6 and niak who cut scream. Dont you think ex6 played so long on a team with scream. That he must have his reasons.
If you look closely, on each match, Maniac is often where his teammates are not, covering back, taking infos on the other side of the map, etc. I like his job and his team like him for that, he is necessary to the team. People don't like him because of the scoreboard, they have just no idea what CS is. I miss 1.6 era when people where not so stupid to made threads on hltv on every action of each match. Seriously this community tired me.
k he can play at LANs, so what?
If they wont get to any LAN because he's underperforming online then its useless..
I can't, he lacks many qualities needed for my support
if thats good i dont know.
he is ok but thats standard
Those are supposed to be highlights and in half the games you linked he went negative, I think that says a lot.
You guys should stop being butthurt so much, its their decision that they dont want to play with him, get over it.
Maniac just needs to focus on himself and put social media aside if he can't handle it. No shame in that. He has the potential but he's in tiltmode because of himself and his brain ghosts.
Maniac sucks , he was always shit thats why he never played in big teams. He is so lucky to be playing in titan
+1 Maniac is underrated
Maniac is a beast on inferno because he gets to play balcony which is a really good spot that can get a lot of frags, however, he suck on every other maps because he plays the most boring areas (B site on mirage)
he is a solid player imho.
Lol so even his top 5 games are just staying in 3rd or 2nd with close frags as the bottom ones? Yeah, great player.
Of course the game is much more than just frags, but if you can't frag for shit consistently you just can't be in a top class team. He isn't IGL or anything special he needs to frag a certain minimum.
I hope Maniac can overcome all this bad moment he is going through and feel more confident about himself. He is not a bad player and he plays a crucial rol on the team. Afterall, he is just having a bad streak, and all the HLTV hate is kinda affecting him :/
