of course the gun itself is still the best gun in game i mean that the role of a primary awp is dying. you dont need to buy an awp for that guy all the time.
2-fallen is more than an awper. cold and taco gets the gun depending on their positions some times. he is also a good rifler.
3-ska is pretty good individually, his lowlights are generally really bad tho. tarik, stew, auti are good enough with the awp to be primary awpres for teams. so for a long time i though ska needed to get replaced by somene like naf but he proved me wrong at the major. also he is one of the hardest palyers to kill.
4-agreed but kenny isnt like what he used to be. i dont mean performance. before he was the main guy on his team. now they share the duty. he also has a pretty good rifle and doesnt buy the awp as much on t side as he used to anymore.
5- team is built around oskar. if he goes insane they win. if doesnt they lose. which is one of the reasons i think the role is dying. at least the building the team around the awp part. same with woxic for hellraisers.
6- he is also more like a hybrid. doesnt pick it up as he did back then. even back then he didnt pick it up as much the likes of kenny guardian or ska.
7- device is the epitome of an hybrid player. they didnt have an awp only player since nico. and the fact that they have the freedom to change the role kinda proves my point.
8- nip isnt that good. and players like draken are exactly what i was trying to mention of dying. only picks up an awp. team revolves around his plays. goes for flashy plays. if he wins his duel team advances. if he dies they usually dont. the plan goes to the bin and they simply try to outaim the other team.
9- s1mple is probably the best hybrid. he is one of the best awpers in the world. he is probably top 5 rifle as well. game usually revolves around his plays but it doesnt matter if its with an awp or a rifle or a deagle/cz.
10- decent player. can easily be upgraded for a better one.
