cogu to step in for Immortals in ELEAGUE Premier

MIRAA
September 12th, 2017 13:46

Gorilla Core member Raphael "cogu" Camargo will be Immortals' fifth player in the ELEAGUE Premier group stage, HLTV.org has learned.

The Brazilian veteran will replace Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe, who has been forced to return to his homeland to apply for a P-1 visa to be able to enter the United States again.

Raphael "cogu" Camargo, one of the most famous Brazilian players in Counter-Strike history, has been competing in the United States since the start of the year. His team, Gorilla Core, recently won ESEA S25 Open after defeating Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir's BOYS ARE BACK 2-1 in the final.

On Twitter, the 32-year-old stated that it is "an honor" to replace kNgV-, who wished his compatriot "good luck"

cogu will reunite with steel for ELEAGUE Premier

On Immortals, cogu will reunite with Lucas "steel" Lopes and Rafael "zakk" Fernandes, both of whom were his teammates on ProGaming.TD, the first Brazilian team to compete abroad in CS:GO.

Immortals will take on mousesports in the first round of the ELEAGUE Premier group stage, on Friday evening. DreamHack Open Montreal champions North and Swedish side fnatic round out the group.

This means that the Brazilian team will compete in the ELEAGUE Premier group stage with:

Brazil Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles
Brazil Henrique "HEN1" Teles
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil Raphael "cogu" Camargo (stand-in)

Lol nothing insane in his clutch man, basic play, basic shots .. I expected something crazy since its on reddit but yeah they but any random action there now. No hate.
2017-09-12 14:58
true, but this man is a hero for many of the old pros like neo and f0rest and fans. its nice to see him on the top stage again even if its just for brief stand-in. it will be weird and nostalgic to see his nametag on the kill feed again (hopefully lol) after all those years
2017-09-12 16:06
It doesn't show the whole round. He got 2 kills with the p250 before doing that, went ninja into a smoke, walked into door... (the rest is on the clip)

Brazil hunte[R] 
He's playing fine cs, but will be hard to replace kng, mainly cause he's the main awper on his team and he will play secondary awp role on IMT. GL to him
2017-09-12 14:13
Yeah who's gonna send death threats if they get rid of kng?
2017-09-13 15:28
#406
 | 
Brazil hunte[R] 
yeah, I think nobody said an important thing about it, if kng had make that threat against FNS in brazilians soil, thats a felony and he could be punished with up to 6 months of prison. Of course, considering the time of punishement the are options on the law that could prevent that, but at least he would need pay community service for a while and maybe some cash. Ps: I'm a lawyer in Brazil.
2017-09-13 16:22
tbh immortals should get rid of him. that would be a punishment fit for his unprofessional actions.
2017-09-13 16:36

 | 
Brazil hunte[R] 
I do believe this is possible considering zakk already was announced as replacement for him and now cogu, and awper will fill his role. It could be a test, if he fits..
2017-09-13 18:20
+1 its nice just to see him again, hopefully he can frag some newschools :D

2017-09-12 16:17
#281
 | 
Estonia ckN 
nah, he isn't the best in 1.6 in americas, FalleN and n0thing were 1928312738 times more skilled than him after 2009
2017-09-12 17:09
n0thing actually hacked in the craziest videos of him in 1.6. nokappa. :P He's admitted to it himself, so overrated. FalleN is a debate but still cogu was a force to reckoned with for sure. I remember many more cogu moments then FalleN, didn't at first even remember that he used to play 1.6. tbh when they popped up in CSGO. I'd say cogu for sure compared to either.
2017-09-12 18:06
Not to say that cogu was there winning titles long before FalleN. I remember those crazy fragmovies with punk rock in the background... Oh good old mibr times =')

2017-09-12 16:35
Best NA player in 1.6 definitely
2017-09-12 16:56
I would say that fr0d was a better overall player than n0thing was at that time, including aim. n0thing had sick aim and as a teenager was an up and coming talent, but fr0d was far better from game sense to overall contribution. Back when Complexity was relevant. Cogu though, was sick! That whole line up was ridiculous. I sure do miss some KIKOOOOOOO!!!!! GL Cogu, good to see your badassery playing at a higher level again, hope he does well.

they both played in 2009-2010 in one team and n0thing was better, stop pls and fRoD wasn't better in 2006 than in 2009
2017-09-12 18:10
We will have to disagree my friend :) n0thing was amazing in 1.6, not taking anything away from him. fr0d was more of a complete package imo. Regardless of our opinions, I do miss those days. There was something more exciting for me back then. Maybe it was because I was younger. Thats why I think its so cool that cogu is back!
2017-09-12 18:53
shaGuar >>>>>> Frod
2017-09-12 23:57
He was definitely a beast!
2017-09-13 18:58
Frod was great player but I myself think that n0thing was better Im still hoping that he could finally be relevant player in NA again,and I hooe so that if cogu show up and go probably to LG replace PKL or create team with HEN1,Lucas1,fnx and kng (yeah I know 3 awpers but he is so experienced player that he can play with rifle probably
2017-09-12 18:18
we talk about frod and n0thing but what about shag and method? didnt they win 2 majorish titles (1 CPL and one big event in china i forgot about)

? Well, fnx wasn't better than Cogu, but you know he won a major with mibr back then, right? Mibr was one of the strongest teams in 1.6, obviously behind the swedes, but on par with other teams.
2017-09-12 16:04
FNX was a beast at MiBR, but he wasn't better than Cogu. Not even close to be honest.
2017-09-12 22:01
#366
Japan etm 
Not a laughing matter tho. He was really good. The next years he was the best rated player from Brazil for several years. "Not even close" is completely wrong. Fnx is the only brazillian player with 3 majors in Counter Strike.
2017-09-12 23:20
Fnx has 5 majors. ESWC 2006 DreamHack 2007 SHG 2007 MLG Columbus 2016 ESL One: Cologne 2016 Followed by Cogu, Bit and Nak: (3) ESWC 2006 DreamHack 2007 SHG 2007 and FalleN, Coldzera, Fer and Taco: (2) MLG Columbus 2016 ESL One: Cologne 2016
2017-09-13 03:15
Mibr was absolutely not one of the strongest teams in 1.6
2017-09-13 14:48

Japan etm 
How come? 13th place on 1.6 all time rankings, top2 in 2006, one of the strongest in 2007 to 2009. Sure, they didn't play for long, but the time they played they were among the best.
2017-09-13 17:21
I would say in cs1.6 markeloff was the best awper of all times (even in 1.5 , 1.3 etc) . In the americas cogu was far more consistent than frod for a bigger period of time. Frod's peak was in 2006. Overall i would say Markeloff Cogu Frod Walle Shaguar Ksharp Vilden Delpan Sunde Johnny R (maybe the first european awper)

al CIS team was tier 2 bro, until 2010 that born Na'Vi and win everything for 2 years, and then cs .6 die so markeloff being the best awper of history is wrong.
2017-09-12 16:23
Its not. His peak was by far above from all the other awpers.
2017-09-12 17:05
#308
 | 
Japan Balikali 
His peak was by far above from all the other awpers, that you can remember, i remember in his time walle being the best, the same as fr0d the same with more older players, what you can say is 2010-2012 was the best, ok. but the history? cs have 10-11 years of history. Is like saying Messi better of history, when Di Stefano, Cruyff, Maradona, Pele , bleh nvm
2017-09-12 18:08
stop acting lke the older guy here pls. Im sure that you arent around as lo g as im. Walle was never the best as an awper. Unless if you take into consideration that shitty best awper in the decade poll.

With all due respect, that list doesn't fit the facts. ShaGuar : was not a dedicate awper. But he was very skillful. One of the best cs overall players in history for sure. Vilden : was very inconsistent. Good/ok player tho. fRoD : was very a aggressive and he changed the game. But hes peak was 2006 and then he went down. Johnny R : Not even in my top15. He was ok. Now my list: 1. Markeloff. Too agressive and skillfull with the awp. 2. Walle. Amazing player. 3. Ksharp. So consistent in those early competitive days. 4. XeQtR. the reason why im awping. my first love. NoA Hero. 5. Cogu. the reason why we have fallen and co. Brazils first cs hero, and one of americas best. I became fan of mibr becouse of him. 6. KennyS. deserve the spot in history. Hes now days idol. 7. fRoD. He def was a guy who dominate the cs scene for a year. The guy came from nowhere with complexity and impressed the whole world. Too much skill. 8. Delpan. I liked to watch this smart player. So good. 9. Fallen. He has the trophies and results. Hes clever and a good captain. 10. JW. I dont like the person, and def dont want to play against him ever. Unique style. Have fun brothers.

DEF NOT IN CRACK LIKE U "johnny R (maybe the first european awper)" hahahahahahaahahahaha get your facts right newb XeQtR was awping Nordic Division, and later NiP (also SK and eoLithic) when johnny was playing nintendo still. JW was the awper of the latest dominant fnatic team. As for 2014 and 2015 he was the best and won more trophies than any other awper #Facts. And he still relevant. KennyS is the number 1 awper in the last 3 years? the guy is a fucking idol in these days. Of course he is one of the best in history so far. And he still young so, u btter get used to it. ROFL. nothing personal dude, but if u said that WALLE is "shitty best awper in the decade" you are def on crack or u just dont know what u are talking about. Get some research before writing some stupid shit, and have fun.
2017-09-12 18:57
Lol.... You are so ignorant kid. Firstly johny r is in fact the first fucking awper in europe as he is older than eol. Jw and kennyshave nothing to do with cs. They are go players a totally different game. Finally stop typing shit venezuela boy. You werent around that time. Go sell some cocaine or what ever you do in this jungle

I have a thick skin, and dumb people cant hurt me. U know shit about me or cs 1.6 awpers, and its so obvius and funny. You better leave that broke country with bad education system and no cs scene.

In CS:GO...
2017-09-13 13:30
they chose probably the worst possible stand in but gl tho...
2017-09-12 13:51
Who would you choose?
2017-09-12 13:54
literally anyone from team lg,one,ex-pain,fox,fnx and im sure that there are much more options... +didnt they buy some guy from spain? i dont want to take anything from cogu and his 1.6 career but he is done.he made few comebacks,failed really,really hard so whats the point to pick him as a stand in? i would rather pick some young gun who is atleast training and playing,waiting for opportunity like this
2017-09-12 14:00
horvy dont have his visa yet, and maybe they wanted to keep the double awp setup, who better than cogu to do that?
2017-09-12 14:11
well i dont actually follow semi pro brasil scene but isnt yel actually pretty good with awp? +i also mentioned fox
2017-09-12 14:27
he is really good, but apparently LG players dont want to leave the org (imt tried to pick one of them before kng), and maybe they dont want to stand-in.
2017-09-12 14:29
well who knows...but i still think that they had a chance to pick better stand in.maybe cogu will surprise this time.we will see
2017-09-12 14:30
Sure, but cogu also bring a lot good too, he has experience, will try his best (its his best chance in csgo), all brazilian cs fans will watch, and afterall, he still a great awper.
2017-09-12 14:35
its good move for brasil fans,thats for sure...and i will watch him aswell(i used to watch him in 1.6 and i know how dominant he was). but based on his comebacks in csgo,i dont think that he is that good anymore(or even average,sadly)
2017-09-12 14:37
i've watched a couple games of gorilla core, and he dominated esea, but its not a parameter.
2017-09-12 14:38
glad to hear that.maybe he trained a lot...:)
2017-09-12 14:41
All of the players and orgs you listed are attached to orgs, they cant compete as stand in's. It look easier to say that one can stand in, but in fact, there are not many players in the scene to replace. I appreciate your calm and wise while talking about them. I'll watch his game too.
2017-09-12 16:02
you can be stand in even if you are in another org after mutual agreement and if your team doesnt participate in that event. btw isnt cogu in Gorilla Core e-Sports?
2017-09-12 16:06
I know, but most of them have scheduled another games. Probably Gorilla doesnt have anything around this dates.

People like cogu are legends because they USED to be good, not because they are good now. This is going to be like that fRoD bullshit 2.0 back when he tried to get back into competing and played for CompLexity, only to get kicked because he was so garbage. fRoD is ALSO legend, but just like cogu, he is only that and nothing more. Neither of the two even played GO at their peak, they were playing 1.6 which is a completely different game. GL anyway.

People are too quick to look to the past in order to try and tell the future. Cogu will most likely get carried the whole event, but their group is a bunch of inconsistent teams (Mousesports, North, and Fnatic) so we'll see what happens.

Doesn't change the fact that they're both below average GO players. Don't you find it funny that cogu, the BR legend, didn't really fall on his feet too well when he announced he was coming back to the CS scene? Like for fucks sakes, the dude was playing in *ESEA OPEN*.

How come you didn't mention how garbage he did during the ELEAGUE Premier with IMT? Also, I said that cogu was "below average", which he is.

Cogu the legend, good luck bro!
2017-09-12 18:17
I think he was waiting a chance to show he's worth a try. Just like Pava on teamONE, after a while he came back and now he's the foundation of the team, reliable and calm. omg, Im so happy. I really hope he does fine or even great in that match against mouz.
2017-09-12 18:18
pava is trash
2017-09-12 18:20
no, he's not? he never was the best in firepower even back to 1.6 times. but been calm, reliable, profesional, no stupid rushs, good game sense and calls. nah whatever. I have my opinion and you got yours.
2017-09-12 18:23
I agree if we talking about br scene, he is one of the best that play in br, but to go international he is trash and btw nothing personal against pava, i like the guy

Everyone making lists of oldschool awpers, but only one guy mentioned "Sunde" on his list.. IMHO, sunde was easily among the top5 1.6 awpers skillwise, alongside markeloff, fallen cogu and frod, I wouldn't name him an all time top5 awper tho.

Sk is losing their top1 spot(already lost it tbh, they can be beaten by everyone again FeelsGoodMan). And KNG was a GOD while cogu suck so rip immortals, therefore BYEBYE BRAZIL FeelsGoodMan( WELP NOT ALL GONE, you will still be there to boost NA and maybe remain top5, but gone from top1 FeelsGoodMan)

Of course he is not up to par with the top players nowadays, I dont think anyone here thinks that, but we are all hoping he will somehow put up a good show and surprise us, thats what the hype is about.
2017-09-12 23:55
He already had plenty of chances and he failed miserably.... lets not fool ourselfs with false hope... he barely compete with tier 5 players in tourneys like frgadelphia
