NBK: shox's surgery unrelated to mixwell move

G2 in-game leader Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt has guaranteed that the recent changes were not triggered by Richard "shox" Papillon's upcoming wrist surgery.

The French team made headlines earlier on Friday by bringing in former OpTic member Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas on trial to replace star player and in-game leader Richard "shox" Papillon.

The 25-year-old is due to undergo surgery on a wrist problem later this month, and G2's original plan was to replace him with coach Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux until he made a full recovery - which would take two weeks "at the very minimum", according to recent comments from Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt while at IEM Katowice. 

NBK- sheds light on the recent changes

When asked on stream about the recent changes, NBK-, who has taken over as in-game leader, stated that it was shox's wish to change the line-up that ultimately led to his removal from the starting roster.

"shox wanted to make drastic changes to the roster, and the team did not really want to make changes, so he decided himself that he did not want to try me out as in-game leader," NBK- said.

"This decision has nothing to do with the surgery."

Shortly after the announcement, Dan "apEX" Madesclaire wrote that shox "was not coming back to the team" in a tweet that has since been deleted. The 25-year-old has posted a new tweet saying that he was simply referring to the current lineup and that shox "may still play for G2 in the future."

shox has been part of G2 since February 2016, when the organisation signed the former Titan squad. He took over from Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans as in-game leader two months later and guided G2 to success at the ECS Season 1 Finals, DreamHack Tours, ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals and DreamHack Masters Malmö.

Ay, bruh you fkn stupid? shox is legit one of the only few players who's played consistently well, he is such a fkn amazing player. Legit look up all of his greatest moments and you'll find some amazing plays from various moments throughout the years, even in the most recent events even after being diagnosed with his wrist problem he still managed to play decently so shut the fuck up and do some research.Don't be a dumb cunt and post bs.

2018-03-09 21:00
G2 can't have a positive change if Shox is bossing around and the team isn't improving. The whole reason why he needs a surgery is only because he got kicked, probably punched a wall or something.

2018-03-09 20:53

Idk i think the current team is good.. shox was insane when he was focusing on fragging.. well just see i guess!
2018-03-09 20:59
Shox to FaZe instead of karrigan would be fun to see. NiKo shox rain olofm GuardiaN karrigan can coach. Adding a little bit more to the fragging department and shox could continue to IGL. Could be what FaZe needs to be able to get the 1st placement, could also be a total disaster, but would be fun to find out.

Im not sure, shox didnt seem like a good igl but not the worst idea. They could also try to play this looser pug style playstyle and rely heavily on their firepower, this would give shox a little room to contribute. Youd have 5 players who can all carry and all will frag well. Im not tryna say, full just rush in and hope for the best style, like it is in FPL but just veryy loose but still tactical.
2018-03-09 21:29

You are right for cj, and tarik at his prime, not rn, and the scene really lacks igls unlike before 3-4 years when taz, happy, ex6, zeus were rly good, also imo gla1ve is pretty good as well
2018-03-10 00:01
fragging wise, yes karrigan delivers most of his games. igl wise? just no. his calls are literally to hold an angle and go a/b hoping for the best
2018-03-10 02:04
Despite the slump, FalleN was the best igl of the last 2 years... He carries SK tactically speaking. Look at the retakes and T post plant situations of SK whenever they find themselves in a good shape. ChrisJ great igl rn as well

If he is, wouldnt he be able to make envy top 5? Look at chrisj, never gave up and brought mouz to top 4.. hes a good igl.. But happy on the other hand is a "useless" IGL and lurker.
2018-03-09 21:17
I dont agree with you, you will never have a french superteam without Happy as an IGL
2018-03-09 21:17

 | 
Canada ropzGOD 
Why isnt he in a "superteam" then? Because he just isnt a good IGL but a good fragger. You said hes the best, but why cant he carry envy/make the team better and be able to compete among the best? I know why, because he just isnt the best.
2018-03-09 21:19
#126

Netherlands !napz 
Because an IGL can't carry. Yes Mouz made it to top 5. This wasn't only Chris' work though. If you take a look, it took a almost full roster change to make this happen, and ChrisJ only picked up IGL after Denis left. ChrisJ is still a fragger, he's just the stratcaller, and sunNy already explained that they play a really loose style of CS where they don't really antistrat a specific team. This makes it easier for the IGL since he only has to know when to call which buy and which tactic. This is in no way appliccable to nV's playstyle. Happy is a fragger and IGL. He can carry as a fragger, but he can't compensate for bad teamplay, or lackluster fragging by himself or other teammates. (although I must say that what I've seen so far from nV looks promising, even without HaDji)

while you are correct in saying that (because it is a direct quote) he did say he was unsure if he would never play with him again. i still see it far more likely for him to do Smithzz Ex6TenZ Shox Devoduvek Amanek since he loves ex6 HARDCORE to the point i think they might bang :think:

no it wasn't shoxie is a sexy beast
2018-03-09 21:05
Shoxie is a sexy beast but he should stop IGLing. If he didnt want to let NBK he wouldn't have let anyone to do it. So, lack of leadership is why G2 IS not a top contender team, maybe NBK can lead properly idk.
2018-03-09 21:07
Who else can be a decent igl in the team? NBK is a fucking twofaced motherfucker who is cancer
2018-03-09 21:08
Xd Well thats what I wanted -boddy +IGL Didnt happen, NBK wasnt able to lead, and It is very likely shox wouldn't have let anyone else IGL but himself. If he really wanted to keep being IGL, this was the right decision. Otherwise, NBK is backstab master.

2018-03-10 09:13
How would that fix Faze? Add a huge ego and a choker? You mean destroy faze? Shox ego could never take a step back the way Olof has. Olof is not the issue, the issue is that every final, Rain or Niko goes missing.

Shox is not a choker lmao and this G2 had different igls on different maps. Know what you're talking about first.
2018-03-10 04:23
Do tell who was IGL in what map. If shox refuses to let NBK try IGL, it seems highly unlikely that he allowed anyone else to do so. (I never even said a word about IGL in my post so not sure why you even brought this up?) The main point was that adding huge ego shox would kill Faze, which I assume you agree on since you didn’t even comment on that.

If you want Faze to disband in 2 week, that is a great move!
2018-03-09 22:15
shox surely saw that this lineup will never work for various reasons, he prolly wanted to break up the combo apex/kenny and body due to poor performance, but i guess they saved each other to keep their spots and NBK needs to stay on G2 since he kinda created that "superteam" and might not be "save" to be on the best french team forever if shox can decide. I like that move since G2 wasnt going nowhere. Maybe this new formation can suprise somehow, but i doubt it. Shox tho should be feel free cuz they never looked like it was fun playing together. shox will feel way better playin again with Scream, RpK & Happy which id love to see. <3

Good job on making your team worst Smart Guy Let me give you a tip you and boddy should get kicked not fucking Shoxie and get a good igl maybe and a good player like Scream Rpk or even kio would make the team much better than to get a 2nd tier awper

i don't know if that's true. with every french shuffle nbk ended up on the more successful side, so he must be doing something right.

Second of all, you are doing the same thing by making an opinion about me being a "fucking idiot" because I just posted my opinion about someone you don't know very well either. Neither of us have any idea about his real self and can only have opinions at this point.... so, pretty fair eh ?? P.S. I always thought he was a bitch :3 .

SK wasn't comfortable playing with felps apparently Although I've concluded that felps was playing coldzera's and fer's aggressive roles better than them, and cold and fer didn't want to be outshined.

Yes. Felps and fer have both similar playstyles. If one is shining, the other one will mostly be struggling. This creates an unbalance in the team. This iarentthink guy compares felps on sk with simple on navi. Felps is surrounded by world class players already such as cold, fallen, and fer who can turn the tides of a game single handedly. Simple has none of that but himself.

Shox has glimpse of brilliance occasionally. Whats your definition of dead? Not able to do star level perfomances consistently? Mine is when you're not putting up pretty much anything. Which is a contradictory to shox's perfomances. He is okay. Also why bring g2 into this? Seriously i dont really get your point here. Arent we talking about simple and his impact on navi specificly?
2018-03-10 10:05
about shox, he was one of the best in the world, so yeah, he is dead now, just facts... and about s1mple, kids that dont understand cs think he is insanely good cuz he gets more frags than the others, but people dont realize that he is killing any chance of the team be consistent, cuz he is everywhere everytime in the map, thats why I gave felps example, of a guy who got more numbers, but the team was t5, then he adapted to the team, and won 5 t1 titles in a row. we could say "omg felps so good, pls kick those 4 bots and bring 4 good players for the superstar felps" (in your logic of course)

God i hate that the shox and kenny combo might never happened. Shox as an igl will never work at the first place. I kinda agree with NBK to some extent on not letting shox igl. But then again i agree to shox's points as he wants to remove 1 of G2's players (i suspect bodyy) and i think its fair. Instead of all this mess, we could get another player like rpk to replace bodyy and let NBK try the igl role while shox focuses on fragging. Then again the ego of this frenchies is huge as fuck so probably will never happen anyways.

NBK is great in these types of situations, always manages to create the best French team in his shuffles. Last time NBK wanted shox and smithzz out he got apex and Kenny and got twice in a row to a major final and won one of them (Cluj). G2 may have seen like a failure but it still was the best French team. If they get their act together they may as well start finally playing like a team, which is better than having 3 egos on the team.
2018-03-10 12:52
This is a fucking joke.. Once again the overpaid french scene, does not uphold to their expectations.. "A french superteam" who has won nothing together.. And now they have picked up a Spanish player, so now that concept is gone.. They should get a smaller organisation.. Clearly they cant handle the pressure. Shox is a much better player than Mixwell, so if NBK did this cause Shox said that NBK could not be the igl.. this little teenager should start get his shit straight and act like an adult and maybe then this kindergarden could start focus on what really matters.

They shouldn't have make this "superteam" in the first place. All they needed was an awper, in my opinion. So if they just replaced smithz with kennys, I'm sure that the Scream, Rpk, Bodyy, Shox, Kennys could've been a much better team. Nbk andapex are good players, but at the same time, overrated. Rpk and Scream are a more powerful duo, no doubt.

By the way, shox could join Envyus and they would easily beat any french G2 lineup. There is no french "superteam" without shox.
