dont hate maniac

He has his moments and helped titan a lot in some important matches at lan, better than apex sometimes. Dont jugde someone by some worthless online game when some pro teams are trying new stuffs or just the player is in a bad day Look what he can do vs fnatic at lan : vs nip : some early lan games : Stop the hate, hes good when his team needs him. Thx for the read.
2015-02-19 09:04
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

we need Scream to show what he can do under pressure like maniac was vs fnatic at ios in final for example
2015-02-19 09:09

imo ScreaM has incredible aim, but it is useless against tier1 teams if he doesn't improve his gamesense

true, but he has gamesense, we saw it in 2013, but i dont know why he was like that in 2014, he had a bad year and we can see he is improving from his mistakes
2015-02-19 09:19
yeah espescially because he might improve incredible fast if he only would get the chance to train and compete on a high level, the potwntial is obviously there
2015-02-19 09:22
Cmon.. Every player except Fnatic robots have a negative side to their game.. OFC scream has bad qualities as well,but its not a reason to use fking RPK and co .. their bad qualities are way worse than screams

rpk is a gamble by ex6 and niak, they are thinking that if rpk became the "RPTanK", they will achieve a lot more than with ScreaM. Its a big gamble, i would have pick scream but i can understand

I think this is pretty harsh. ScreaM has basicly played in a team (2014) which had no real chance to succeed in top level. Epsilon was the worst T1 team by far. But not because of ScreaM. I think ScreaM has a amazing aim. Probably one of the best in pro circuit. He is calm and can actually clutch a hopeless situations too. In 1v1 he is really good. Given the right team he could really start to blossom even more. But maybe Titan is not that team. They have Apex who is basicly playing the same role already. I would rather see ScreaM in EnvyUS instead of NBK. In that way Shox could play a more free role, like GTR in NiP. Kioshima would be in more a support role with Happy and ScreaM could get a necessary entryfrags with that amazing aim. Entryfraggers do not suffer from the lack of "game sense" so it could really work. So, maybe like this: Smithz main AWP Shox roamer, lurker, secondary AWP ScreaM entryfragger, first to go toe to toe Happy IGL Kioshima "support". I dont even like that term since I dont think there is a "support" role in this game. Every player needs to pull their own weight and frag. But Kio could be a pair with Smithz when he is AWP:ing. Securing hes flanks and giving support in tight situations when needed.

yes that team would be better in my opinion if you want no support player

ty for the thread and comments, i haven't seen this kind of respectful comments and ideas for a while in hltv
2015-02-19 17:17
read the comment I wrote as an answer, it wasn't meant that harsh, but I lack many vocabulary and other qualities when speaking english as a german, so I am not as eloquent as I would like to be :D

I did and that is why I made my post. Or you saying that "imo ScreaM has incredible aim, but it is useless against tier1 teams if he doesn't improve his gamesense" Useless? Thats pretty harsh if you ask me :) But yeah, I understand. EDIT: MY bad. Now I saw your response. Silly me. Sorry fro being blind.
2015-02-19 10:13 just think for a second. also nv is a fine team the way it is. yea i know that kenny is better than smithzz. does that mean - smithzz + kenny? no, stop being retarded. about scream id say the same, just that he isnt even a better aimer than nbk. scream can be good and he can hit some good one taps and he has a high hs rate but he gets fanboid a lot too much by brainless morons on hltv who just fail to realize that he got kicked from titan for a reason. also only retarded people hate all day on maniac. i know he isnt the best rifler on the earth, but he is a solid lurker, usually gets his kills on ct side and doesnt fuck up too much. imo he should either prac spraying or switch to the other m4, ideally both. since i have seen him take too many bullets for an m4 kill quite often.

I'm glad we have some many experts here in HLTV. Your response is pretty much what I expected to receive. "Retard, Brailess, Fanboid"...All good valid points. Care to elaborate where did I go wrong and what basis do you have (other than Maniacs personal preference) to claim such things? ScreaM is not better aimer than NBK? Based on what? Statistics? Positions, playing style...what? Could you give me the reason why ScreaM were released from Titan? Maniac just stated that: "But he lacks many qualities you need as a professional player for a team as a whole." You seem to be a expert on this matter. And saying that Envy wouldn't be a better team with KennyS than Smithz...based on what? Skill? Team chemistry? EDIT: Some typos.
2015-02-19 11:17
i elaborated where u and many others go wrong. scream is not a better aimer than nbk when it comes to anything but one tapping (maybe pistols too). thats based on watching them play obviously. nbk has very good spray control and very good first shot accuracy. i cant give u the exact reason why scream was released from titan, no.i just said there was one. i also assume some things myself, but i dont really have proof obviously, since titan never released a statement with an explanation. i didnt say that nv wouldnt be better with kenny. i said its retarded to keep saying -smithzz + kenny bcs nv is fine the way it is.
2015-02-19 12:11
Swap Maniac to Scream and you realize why Scream doesnt play for top team. Good, but not going to happen
2015-02-19 11:58
80% of the games he plays he sucks though.. he's at the same level as GMX...
2015-02-19 09:06

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%..
2015-02-19 09:08
better then scream? go suck a dick please, hes one of the worst support players out there. Jesus christ, france have the best players in the world maby but mainiac is really one of the worst players in france. Support player xd
2015-02-19 09:13

France Impak 
i never said he was better than scream, i said Maniac is better in lan than online when the pressure and the game is important learn to read before to say shit about someone. You dont know the french scene and talking trash lol so funny, i prefer to have scream in titan but i believe that maniac can do a lot for his team
2015-02-19 09:17
Read wrong there, mybad. He still is one of the worst support players maby thro cs go, its like watching a kid play counter strike when he plays..
2015-02-19 09:23
Ryu7z | 
France Impak 
its your opinion, i respect, he did some weird choices in some games but when i looked some important games, he did good, not best, maybe scream could do better than him at this moment, but he did a good job like the final vs fnatic or nip
2015-02-19 09:34
Isnt it quite obvious that Maniac is considered better for his team, as Scream got kicked and wasnt invited back. In the end of the day, team decided to sign Maniac, there is probably a reason behind it. Scream was good at one point, after that he has gone downhill. No he doesnt even have a team?
2015-02-19 12:00
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
2015-02-19 09:09
Ryu7z | 
France Impak 
it was a team statement, ex6 said the same that ScreaM will not fit the new titan But if scream was the same as 2013, like 3rd best clutchers, +1.1 rating in 80% of matches, he could have been pick. He just had a bad year..
2015-02-19 09:14
Maniac: "ScreaM lacks many qualities" all im saying is after such a statement you have to be prepared for hate and i know the whole team probably thinks scream lacks many qualities but the hltv post clearly said maniac.
2015-02-19 09:21
Ryu7z | 
France Impak 
yes he had his opinions and i think the team opinion is probably the same, ScreaM will improve and be as good as he was in 2013 and maybe he will join titan and be better than Maniac but for me Maniac is good and hes doing well in titan right now.
2015-02-19 09:35
ye hes alright
2015-02-19 09:41
Maniac speaks for the team.
2015-02-19 12:03
so what doesnt matter it said that maniac said it if he cant take the hate someone else from his team or manager shouldve said it and if no one wants hate just say nothing
2015-02-19 12:44
yeah and people just fail to realize that the damn french are too arrogant to learn proper english in school, like people in every other first world country do. bottom line is, maniac has decent english and a decent appearance, which is probably why he does most of the interviews and stuff. he didnt decide that they wouldnt take scream and in that interview he just expressed parts of the teams reasoning. in no way did he ever say fuck scream, i am a lot better at aiming than him. if brainless hltv cavemen would just stop being retarded....
2015-02-19 10:48
scream instead of rpk would make more sense. disagree with swapping for maniac.
2015-02-19 09:29
yea that would make more sense...if you were trying to make a worse team

its sad, because im not a fan of maniac, i prefer ScreaM.
2015-02-19 09:43
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.
2015-02-19 09:54
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.
2015-02-19 09:59
you understood it my friend. they have people like kenny and apex getting the frags, maniac provides the info, holdin' angles where the fraggers can't be and stuff like that.he just needs to improve his ability to frag and win clutch situations. if he's able to do so he will gonna be a beast
2015-02-19 10:19
Yeah exactly, he has to be more effective on clutch, but I think it will come with the stability of the team. It's a question of time and Maniac has a life, I know he is not on his best form. Nice to read decent comment btw.

i hate him because of the fucking shakes and bad xhair positioning
2015-02-19 18:53
k he can play at LANs, so what? If they wont get to any LAN because he's underperforming online then its useless..

online qualifer for a lan is just silly but it needs money and a place :/ All players do bad games online, but maniac is here at the important time, he helps his team well but i would have pick scream tho.
2015-02-19 10:52
ex6 and kenny said they wont play with Scream (I'm not sure if its true).
2015-02-19 10:56 Just read it and cry. That's his event history.

i looked it, and looked the vods too, hes a good player and underpressure like vs nip ir fnatic in final he did very well when his team was bad, hes helping his team a lot.

its ok, pretty much always close to 1, 0.9 0.8 rating, very stable player
2015-02-19 12:40
0,8 or 0,9 is really not that good. So it's a stable mediocre level in other words.
2015-02-19 15:23
Latvia Ke]R[4u 
i didn't say he's good, he's ok for a dedicated support player who throws flashes and guns for kenny and apex, his stats are better than fiflaren and a bit worse than starix,game vs nip was one of worst to get this going, he don't deserve the hate he gets imho.
2015-02-19 16:15
Exactly, Fifflaren didn't deserve the hate he got either. But if you are playing for an elite team and people don't think you pull your own weight and from time to time have some really embarrassing performances - your are going to get flamed.

if thats good i dont know. he is ok but thats standard
2015-02-19 12:44
Those are supposed to be highlights and in half the games you linked he went negative, I think that says a lot.
2015-02-19 13:00

negative but close, doing pretty well And he is very good on inferno
2015-02-19 13:21
The only other pro players who've had consistently low ratings yet remained on top teams are cype and fifflaren, and look where they ended up.

lol comparing cype to maniac :/
2015-02-19 18:54 Cype's worse statistically, he has very solid aim but his positioning is awful.
2015-02-19 19:02
You guys should stop being butthurt so much, its their decision that they dont want to play with him, get over it.
2015-02-19 13:01
NT Maniac
2015-02-19 15:27
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.

tlking about titan and their 2 lan they assisted in 2015, going to finals BECAUSE of TEAMPLAY. Kennys was not the only one playing good at lan, u can see it on the link i gave. Titan strat is too give the best info and help the most Kennys to get kill.
2015-02-19 16:49

they were second when ldlc and fnatic was there (Inferno online Pantamera), your argument is inavlid. No need to talk to you now u got owned.

so you mean one 2nd place (because i wont count asus rog 2tier teams tournment) in almost 1 year its a good result? HAHAHAHAHAAH OH MY GOD, blind fanboy is blind fanboy, will stop right here dude, you need to wake up HAHHAHAHAHAH

2015-02-19 18:45
+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.

2015-02-19 18:48
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.

If kennys and apex are not getting killed by behind in terrorist, you can thx maniac. Hes not a aggressive player, not the best 1v1 aimer, he is never when the action is (like vs nip in inferno, trying to hold b vs, for me the best b defence, getright and friberg and faking them) but he can support His team and help His teamates With other things than kills Its not the defend who scores goal in footbal for example ;)
2015-02-21 04:29
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 :/
