fox to play for SK at EL Major

MIRAA
December 6th, 2016 00:09

SK Gaming have confirmed that Ricardo "fox" Pacheco will play for the team at the ECS Season 2 Finals and at the ELEAGUE Major as a replacement for Lincoln "fnx" Lau.

In a statement, SK revealed that Lincoln "fnx" Lau has been moved to a backup position following "different opinions on how to develop" the team's approach to the game.

Ricardo "fox" Pacheco is currently travelling to North America to compete at the ECS Season 2 Finals, which kick off on Friday. He has been without a team since August, when he was released by FaZe to make way for Aleksi "allu" Jalli.


fox will play for SK at the team's next two events 

After the Christmas break, the Portuguese veteran will join up with the rest of the squad in Cologne as they will prepare for the ELEAGUE Major, where the team will try to defend the titles won in Columbus and Cologne.

"Lincoln was crucial in our success as he was one of the important pieces that led us to achieve the things we did in the last year," Gabriel "Fallen" Toledo said in a statement.

"Our team can only be successful when all players are working constantly for the same goal. Lately, it didn't feel like everybody had the same vision for our team going forward.

"A team lives of good and tough moments during which you need special motivation, hard work and full commitment to get back to where you want to be.

"Everyone, including Lincoln, tried extremely hard in the last months to fix that situation, but ultimately we felt a change was a necessary step for now to development as a team."

SK's recent run of poor form has seen them not win a title since July, when they lifted the ESL One Cologne trophy, becoming only the second team to win back-to-back Majors.

The Brazilian team will attend the ECS Finals and the ELEAGUE Major with the following roster:

Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David
Brazil Epitacio "TACO" de Melo
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Portugal Ricardo "fox" Pacheco (stand-in)

SK will try to sign felps/lucas from IMT after the EL major
2016-12-06 00:10
Lucas is entry fragger, so they would probably pick Felps or even boltz, that is a little bit passive but has being consistent and a good clutcher
2016-12-06 00:23
Lucas isn't good. He is just sort of there on Immortals, Felps / Boltz would be much better pickups.
2016-12-06 06:38

2016-12-06 13:19
i think felps/boltz, boltz is better and i dont think lucas would play on a team without hen1

I prefer Felps, I think he is so dedicated, very constant and can bring more fire power to the team.

I prefer Felps too, but he is too agressive, just like Fer, so i'm not sure if he would be able to change his style or if Fer would. There is a "problem" too. He is known for beeing too shy and quiet, even ingame, it may be a problem for SK. My shot is Boltz, but i'd like to se Felps too. Lucas1 is almost impossible, as slendersleeper said, he wouldn't play without hen1.

Brazil Jack3D_br 
Lucas1? I think he doesn't fit on team's skill. boltz is too passive, I don't think he fits well also. Fer and Felps can be a monster firepower to the team with a lot of aggressivity, I think Fallen can manage these beasts hehe
2016-12-06 07:07
i prefer gibbon, they are also a very loyal species and do not fuck other peoples gf
2016-12-06 09:34
^^^ Ya name tells it
2016-12-07 08:06
boltz has already been on the team with them back in 2015
2016-12-06 07:38
So what?...he has more XP now then before...and more skill too...he could come back! As fnx if he starts to play good again =]

That would suck for IMT, but tbh, I wouldn't be amazed if one of them agree, since the salary and stuff are way better on SK
2016-12-06 05:59
Both felps and Lucas cant play the major for SK because they already player the minor for IMT
2016-12-06 08:29

Ez for the best player in the world Ricardo "fox" Pacheco, known for his semi-final carry at DH Cluj 2015. The legends of the next major are now- SK w/ fox Navi VP Liquid Gambit Flipsid3 Fnatic Astralis LUL
2016-12-06 00:11
you dont even give him a chance to play stop judging
2016-12-06 00:15
i have no problem with fox as a player but chances sk with fox is better than sk with fnx are very low

with fnx playing like shit in last 5 tournaments even hunden on his place will make sk better
2016-12-06 00:58
Never insult a God.
2016-12-06 01:13
Hunden is infinitely better than Fox. Hell NA AdreN is still better than Fox. Fox was the worst player on Faze back when they were absolute trash. How people believe he will get an ADR above .2 on SK is beyond me.

This people is what you call someone who just says shit out of is mouth without even looking at the stats
2016-12-06 14:10
what stats? You mean like how he had a LAN rating of .9 or less in 5 of his last 7 LAN events with Faze. Or how in those 7 events he only broke 75 ADR once.

i agree. fnx would do any role better but we have to admit lately hes garbage (last 2 events) and they seem to show he lacked motivation and practice... SK wants to practice hard and he doesnt. thats what i take from this post.

Yeah, that's exactly what looks like.
2016-12-06 04:29
Don't understand sk decision. He sucks in the last 2 tournaments but it's no about that. Now the other topteams have a lot of advantage playing against sk cause they need teamplay and details and that requires a lot of months. Probably fnx need some time to make his head clear again everyone needs holidays and that stuff. Look at virtus pro they play less tournaments in the end of the year, they suck but they know it's about time and they will back on track the next year. Good luck to sk tho
2016-12-06 13:20
Especially when you are replacing him with Fox, an AWPer. I know cause of the stupid major rules its hard to get anyone else, but still. Fox is not going to be much help.
2016-12-06 19:02
It's ok cold surely is going to use more rifles and they have that surprise having 3 awps. For me is all about time but fox have the chance of his career and he can't miss this
2016-12-07 13:30
Fox doesn't only suck with awp. He can also suck with rifle and pistol. Fox never fails to let down team.
2016-12-07 18:37
+1
2016-12-06 00:17
Fox is an AWPer though. A job that is already taken up by Fallen, so his chances of providing any impact are slim to none.
2016-12-06 06:39
let him play and then talk to me
2016-12-06 12:02
Aight, we will continue this conversation next monday after ECS has concluded.
2016-12-06 19:02
okay mate
2016-12-06 19:32
Well SK has been eliminated and it went basically as I expected. Fox only went positive twice and they were by 2 kills both in easy wins for SK. When SK lost Fox's best +/- was -6 and his best rating was .71. He also only broke 70 ADR twice and failed to break 60 ADR 4 times. As far as I am concerned that is no impact. He played average when the core played well and he played shit when the core played alright. SK did manage to do pretty well, but they had a very easy group and won in spite of Fox, not because of him. If they are in the other group or Dig isn't fielding Valde then they get crushed. Fox is playing just as bad as he did in Faze and unless Fallen can magically find a role for him in 1 month SK is going to struggle to make it out of groups in the major.
2016-12-12 02:04
he didnt play as bad as you said. Overall the team didnt go so well and he managed to make some important frags in some moments. all players had hard times, even fallen on cache with 0 kills in 7 rounds. let them play together more time to fix some mistakes and you will see
2016-12-12 03:03
Yeah Fallen had some shit maps, they all did, but at least all of those guys also had really good maps. Fox's good maps were average and his bad maps were awful.
2016-12-12 04:43
btw, check better the other teamates stats and compare.
2016-12-12 03:18
I did, Taco was the only one that was anywhere near as bad over the event. Fallen Cold and Fer carried until they actually faced an elite team in Astralis where they got shut down. Fox played shit the whole time and got carried to a decent score. Again he never got more than 17 kills and his best +/- was 2... The rest of them were very up and down sure, but at least they had ups. Even Taco had a great game against Astralis.
2016-12-12 04:40
You made mistake,let me correct you "let him drop glocks and then talk to me"

Probs only Navi, VP, Astralis, SK and Fnatic, in no particular order are worthy of the spots >.>
2016-12-06 00:21
fnatic sucks bro
2016-12-06 00:21
Fnatic is aight, but certainly not legends status worthy. VP and Astralis are the only teams that are definitively top 8. NaVi is borderline. SK with Fox, Fnatic, Gambit, and Flipsid3 are worthy of qualifier spots and would prolly get into the major, but they are not top 8. If I could pick the legends I'd prolly pick: VP, NIP, Dig, Astralis, Faze, C9, Optic, and NaVi.

2016-12-06 17:07
They fucking beat Dignitas in a best of 3. That alone puts them way above teams like Liquid, CLG, Mouz, Renegades, Godsent, and especially the teams in their minor region of fucking Spirit and Vega Squadron both of which are barely T3 caliber.

So You think, SK will be eliminated in groups? XD
2016-12-06 17:47
I mean SK with Shoowtime got 16-0'd by Renegades, a team that likely won't even make it into the major. Shoowtime is about as good as Fox and is much better suited to the role he was playing than Fox will be, so the chances of them failing to get out of groups seem high to me. Obviously though it depends on the groups, so if they get an easy group then they might be able to sneak out. However I don't see how you could say that SK with Fox is a top 8 team in the world.

gambit also, one of the top teams atm
2016-12-06 15:57
Gambit is good, but they aren't top 8. They won DH Winter, but only had to go through C9 to do it. I'd prolly put them in the 10-14 range with teams like G2, EnVy, and Immortals.
2016-12-06 17:32
I forgot Fox has been to the semi's of a major before. That kinda scares me in the same way thinking that Smithzz is a major champion scares me.

nice try baiting 1. faze is a top 10 team 2. faze is one of the favorites to qualify for the major 3. the only reason fox is at the major is because sk couldnt sign any of the immortals players, so they needed somebody that isnt under a contract and speaks their favela language

nice try baiting Faze is a favorite to qualify when there are teams like g2 envy mouz and nip lmao And fox is in sk just like allu was picked to nip because he understood them. Besides when allu went to nip they were again barely a top 10 team, so once again allu just fills blanks on bad teams and ends up getting kicked
2016-12-06 15:27
Nip barely top 10 team with old maikelele ok hahahha
2016-12-06 16:51
Mouz is trash. G2 is too inconsistent. FaZe should go through the MQ. FaZe looks good w/ karrigan. Allu didn't speak Swedish when he was picked by NiP btw. I respect fox but his fans are very dumb sometimes

Nip will always find their magic/form for a tournament or two along the year, but for the most time with allu on their team they were barely a top 10 team with overall very poor results, it was their worst era.

"for the most time" lel contradicting yourself. Then they were a top 10 team (even top 2 for a short period). Not "barely". btw nip in november last year: hltv.org/ranking/teams/2015/november/3/

And in all te other ranks along the year nip was barely top10 even falling of from thoorin's top10 for a short periode. I'm not contradicting myself, because anyone can go and check that when allu was in Nip it was also their worst period (not saying it was all his fault, just so you don't get butthurt)

Give me proof they were outside top 10 once. Sure it might've been the worst period with allu on their team but they were a stable top 10 team throughout 2015.

Not on thoorin's top10 they weren't and everyone knows hltv has the most retarded ranks but you are right they never left top10 on hltv i think but that doesn't mean they were top10, just like they aren't top1 now even tho hltv thinks they are.

HAHAHA the haters can shove it up where the sun doesent shine. look whos playing in the best team in the world now? people should look where faze is compared to SK
2016-12-06 00:11
This comment makes no sense, where SK is has nothing to do with fox, he didn't contribute anything to get them there.

dont take it personally, its just to trigger the haters who dont see the usefulness of fox in the past
2016-12-06 00:59
I think what he means is Faze kicked Fox and are now just a decent team, meanwhile he is in fucking SK.
2016-12-06 01:05
He is a stand-in. They had no other decent options, wouldn't call that a win.
2016-12-06 03:01
if he stays then yes its win

fox has always been a solid player even without awp, and now he will be able to communicate easier wich can only help him perform even better in the games
2016-12-06 00:15
Fox is a bot w/o awp, that is the only reason Faze had to take their better awper maikelele of awping since they couldn't carry bot fox on rifle. He is solid on the awp, at least defensively. But he is terribad at everything else.

he reads the game alot better than bot allu who even sucks with the awp
2016-12-06 00:58
Yeah allu is extremely overrated. But I just called your bluff that fox is good with anything other than the awp. Don't take me for a faze fan.

im not saying he the best player in the world. i am just thinking as SK probably is, that fox is a talented and very experienced player that is qualified to stand in for SK for the time being and capable to play in LAN environment right away
2016-12-06 01:03
He is an ok player. The main reasons he was picked are probably that he speaks Portuguese and that he is not signed to a team. As a fit for SK he doesn't make much sense, since he has to awp to contribute but his awping is not on the level of Fallen. Putting Fox on rifle makes no sense and putting Fallen on rifle is a waste. So the roles will be strange.
2016-12-06 01:09
they will put coldzera on rifles only, you are so dumb, talking all your shity opinions as facts. Get a clue nerd, no1 cares about your opninion.
2016-12-06 01:29
Wow, you are so dumb. Of course in the rounds they have 2 awps everything is fine. But this like 4 rounds per map. In the normal rounds when they only have one awp how will they do it? If Fox plays awp: worse awp than fallen so that is a waste If Fallen plays awp: Fox is a bot with rifle. In both these scenarios SK is worse than with fnx. As you said, get a clue!
2016-12-06 02:04
Opinion of a silver right here, fox is a bot with rifles. You are hilarious
2016-12-06 02:43
Response of a hardcore fanboy right here, fox can rifle. You are hilarious.
2016-12-06 06:53
Fox is the best riffler from portugal too. Here in Portugal no other player can play better with rifflers, pistols and awp than him... He improved a lot about riffles after FaZe... he will just need to prove you on friday because we here know what he is capable of... Best Regards and have a good day! :)
2016-12-06 09:19
In a country with only one pro player it is not hard to be the best. That doesn't mean he is a good rifler or pistoler when compared to the whole pro scene. But maybe he has improved as you say, we will see. Luckily they start of vs a Dignitas that also has a standin so it might be fairly even.
2016-12-06 10:02
we will get our answers on friday... untill there is just expectulation. And we have 2 atm playing outside Portugal... Killdream is playing for a BR team too that lives in US... Pain Gaming and he is not even 50% of fox...
2016-12-06 10:47
Question: what is worse than an hltv full of toxic SK fans? Answer: an hltv full of toxic SK fans together with toxic delusional Fox fanboys. You are the only mature Fox fan I ever met. Btw I think you mean "speculation"
2016-12-06 12:26
ye i went to google to see if it was correct and still didn't get any answer so i just said to me "well he will understand i think" ehehe To your Question/Answer... Ye you might be true about that thing. but you can just ignore them because as i see here in PT most of the fan base of fox are kids 13-16 yo. If it was me i just don't care about they're saying... I follow fox since on lans back on cs 1.6 when we always never get too far on lan tournaments but still we choose to stay there to keep watching him playing...

2016-12-06 18:18
Well, it is of course possible that fox has drastically improved his rifle since he left faze. I must admit I don't follow the PT "pro" scene at all and I sure hope fox has done something with his time. But based on his performance in old kinguin before they swapped him to the awp it was very bad. And that is the last top level rifle play from Fox.

even if they want him he will not stay, he already said it that if he keeps playing it has to be in Europe. He is going to be a father in 5 months more or less, so obviously he wont leave Portugal for the time being.

2016-12-06 01:10
Does age even matter at this point? I mean, Taz is 30, Neo 29, f0rest 28, pasha 28, edward 28, zeus 29, still all are great players, all contesting titles.
2016-12-06 13:32
I don't really think so, but ppl usually does so I put it there as a negative point. We gotta admit there are a lot more early 20's players than 30's
2016-12-06 13:40
That's true because most pro players play since they are teens and alot of them when they reach late 20's they start getting bored and move to something else in their lives. Though, it seems it's starting to chance as the money they receive now is really good compared to like 6,7 or more years ago.

2016-12-06 02:00
wtf were they thinking? even if your having internal issues, wait til the major to make a roster change. also, where does fox fit in this lineup? he`s ok with the awp, but definitely below fallen and cold, and mediocre with rifles and pistols. at least with fnx there was a small chance of getting somewhere. with fox there`s no chance at all.

im not hating, but seriously, why fox? he can only play with awp and SK already got fallen and colzera as 2nd awp. It will only work if they let fox solo awping and fallen will have to be a dedicated rifler, and he's like tier 3 with rifle.
2016-12-06 04:03
triple AWP setup lul
2016-12-06 07:49
use ur brain, cold will most likely be full time rifle since he's the best rifler in the team, fox will probably be 2nd awper.

2016-12-06 13:02
Strange choice since SK already has top3 awper and very good 2nd awp. I guess fox will move to USA for a month to train with the team?

He sure is. He will prob be another rifle or only awp on certain maps. It will help with sk's cache and lately overpass prob too, and I guess they will start banning coble now

guys, fnx wouldn't play anymore in SK, He fu**ed fer's girlfriend
2016-12-06 14:59
OMG give him a time and watch how he will play in team before making these statements. RIP SK #1
2016-12-06 15:31
fnx or fox, who will catch the difference, just 1 character in the nickname :D
2016-12-06 15:33
inb4 he carries hard and a lot of issues in whole SK and the lose in OT on train after fox won 2 or 3 clutches
2016-12-06 16:47
i hope G2 will knock them out of the groups
2016-12-06 16:54
RIP SK
2016-12-06 17:01
SK fox -> lul -> rip SK
2016-12-06 17:18
SK would be making a huge mistake if they kicked fnx, so it's good to see that he's in reserves at least. hopefully fox can help them do better than they have before but I severely doubt it.

yeah, really huge mistake, fnx just f**ked fer's gf, but keep him in the team, he's great
2016-12-06 17:30
Can you give me a source? everyone keeps saying fnx fucked fer's gf but no one can link proof of it
2016-12-06 17:55
fox is a good player, he just didn't suit with faze. if he finds perfect team he will solocarry like he used to
2016-12-06 17:25
+1 since 1.6 fox carry everyteam he is in, stop beeing salty hltv boys, and face the true fox will do fine in sk, SAME LANGUAGE, witch is much better for fox than FAZE. i dont know if u know but fox didnt know how to english so it was a struggling time on faze for him. now in a PT/BR enviroment it will be EZ PZ for fox get used
2016-12-06 17:42
fox was good at the start of csgo aswell
2016-12-06 17:48
ofc he was and he still his, im just telling his background
2016-12-06 17:50
vao se fuder, FNX >>>>> fox all day long fox é melhor de awp, o q esses retardado da sk tao pensando?
2016-12-06 17:40
nao sejas careta maluco, tu nem nunca viste o fox a jogar , o motivo da palvra favela existir na hltv sao comentarios tristes como o teu
2016-12-06 17:42
errado. ta cheio de br melhor pra substituir o fnx. chupa portuga
2016-12-06 17:44
ahahahhaha jogas cs com a testa favela? o fnx nao da, nenhum cara dos imortals tem nivel para os SK sem ser o FOX foi por isso q eles o foram buscar pensa la um bocado sergio burro do caralho, achas mesmo que uma team top 1 iria buscar um jogador q nao fosse top, tendo uma team no brasil pa ir buscar jogadores? Se foram buscar o fox e porque sabem o q tao a fazer seu paneleiro de ipanema, achas q o fox n joga cs a mais tempo q qualquer um dos SK? LOL brasileiro e BURRO mesmo

ahaha mas sabes que os utilizadores na hltv é que têm sempre razão. os pros não sabem o que fazem, são estes globals da hltv que percebem disto ahah estes putos todos aziados, sempre a criticar os jogadores... uma equipa tier1 nunca na vida vai querer o fox, só porque 90% da comunidade fala mal dele... cada lógica estes gajos. eles não entendem que a opinião deles é irrelevante xD
2016-12-06 18:40
Desejo toda sorte do mundo ao fox, porém a SK não buscou jogadores brasileiros porque os jogadores da IMT já jogaram o Minor e não poderiam jogar o Major por outra equipe. Ao mesmo tempo, os players que residem no Brasil precisariam de visa, e no intervalo de tempo para a ECS não seria possível... De qualquer forma, o fox é um bom jogador e, dentro das condições, é a melhor opção.
2016-12-12 04:44
portugues troxa, ja "buscaram" o shoowtime pra depois queimar ele. Vai ser igual com o fox. Tu és so mais um fanboy puxa saco do fox

Let's see what Fox will do better or worse... If worse, will take. Felps or Boltz for SK in the future. But my opinion. OK?

fox is the best option to replace fnx, the other 4 players can play the same roles, it doesn't change too much, its' just an 'n' for an 'o'.

"fox will surely help out the team in terms of mental strength but I believe that the team will also help fox unlock his full potential and be what he is known for. How? This is a personal opinion but I believe FalleN is one of the most motivational players I’ve ever met in Counter-Strike. I mean, if you had to give an example of someone who is very positive and optimistic even when the situations are bad, FalleN is that person. He always manages to find something positive out of something bad and it’s that optimism and confidence that will help fox find his A-game, which was something that he has NEVER had in his previous teams, not only because there was no one who could have said it in his native language, but in the way that FalleN usually does it." this! error.pt/post/154125901372/what-fox-can-..

fox has to be main awper, you can't have a 2 awp setup for the most of time, and since fox isn't good with rifles, it has to be fallen going full rifler.

Good luck to fox, FaZe was never the right place for him. Hopefully he won't be relegated to just play a support role again, but it depends on how much SK is willing to change and adapt their gameplan for him.
