2017-11-10 20:24
Dude I'm not dumb I know that NaVi wasn't just destroyed by the joining of s1mple but he is/was one of the reasons why the team was destroyed regardless. He would also fit in Liquid way better than in NaVi.

Youre fucking stupid is all. If someone who is top5 player joins a team he can destroy a team. Also if he did navi would kick him.

He cant*
2017-11-11 02:24
Well I didn't say that he plays bad at all, ofc he's the best player on NaVi. But I think communication wise, strats etc. are worse since s1mple joined. Surely I can't proof anything but it's a fact that NaVi plays worse now than they did before.
2017-11-11 02:38
You keep saying "its a fact that navi played better before" as if though that in any way helps your argument.
2017-11-11 05:45
Like I said, I have no proof/facts
2017-11-11 10:46
well at least you admit it my friend.
2017-11-11 19:01
I know that it seems like I may be stupid because I accuse s1mple to be the main reason for NaVi's poor performance recently but I'm not a total retard dude, I know that I can't prove anything that I said
2017-11-11 19:11
oh dont worry I dont think youre a retard, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Maybe s1mple is their problem.

Let them get some games with the new player electronic before saying incredible stupid things. Why people say s1mple destroyd navi.. he is in many pros opinion the best cs player now. Zeus has not figured how to use him yet. Simple is a complete different player to what he was in liquid. He is a much better teamplayer, he just dont get the freedom to do what he can best. I hope in few months they have figured the roles of electronic and s1mple out. I would rather say flamie has been the problem. So unconsistant all the year long. Zeus need to work harder aswell. Seem like they not pracc so much... he is actually the best igl there is right now. He just havnt figured the new navi out yet. Just wait guys ;) ps fuck u s1mple haters.. u dont know shit what u tslking about

From a consistent top 3-4 team , that yes couldn't win a major but still was already very well placed to this mess... Good roster changes for sure. Now I can't wait until they meet FaZe and Gambit in LAN so s1mple can be outawped by GuardiaN and Zeus can cry getting rolled on by his former team..
