Video: shox vs. mixwell

Because of the recent movements in G2, we have put a video together comparing some of the best actions by the two players involved, Richard "shox" Papillon and Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas.

G2 made headlines earlier this month as internal issues over bad results ended in the French superteam making changes. The turmoil ended up boiling over and Richard "shox" Papillon left the team, leaving a void that will be hard to fill. Called up to step in shox's shoes was Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas, the Spanish all-rounder, who is on trial with the team after having parted ways with OpTic after last season.

The three-minute video, made by Anton "Molen" Koev, shows the two players in several situations and displays some of the best plays made by the French superstar and Spanish prodigy. Particularly impressive in the video is the amount of clutches played, one of shox's specialties, but also situations the Spaniard excels in. 

The movie starts with a four-kill 1vs2 pistol clutch by shox and is followed by a quad-kill by mixwell against the team he is now playing for,  G2. Press play above to watch the rest of the video, which includes multi-kill rounds with AWPs, rifles, and pistols from events like ESL One Cologne 2016 or IEM Katowice 2018, among others.

but that's right, if you are igl you cant be focus on your crosshair like other players, and shox manage a lot all his teammates it was very difficult for him to focus on his crosshair

Sorry for commenting here. How can you compare mixwell to shox? Shox is a fcking legend. Top 20 almost every year and mixwell hasn't made it once. Shox is a legend, mixwell is not.

Shox= arguably best cs:s player, csgo in top 10 of all time.

United Kingdom Alth 
If we are talking the whole of CS:GO, shox is definitely top 3. He's became one of the best in the world, year after year, again and again. Get_Right and F0rest, while amazing for the first couple years, have not returned to that form. F0rest has been ok at times, but not how he was in 2013. Only people who you could put above Shox all time in CS:GO is Coldzera and Olof, and that's open to debate.
2018-03-27 17:25
#132

United States LookitsJrd 
Definently not top 3. Top 5 maybe.
2018-03-27 18:58
So who do you put above him?
2018-03-27 20:25
#154
 | 
United States LookitsJrd 
Flusha, Coldzera, F0rest, Get_right, Snax, KennyS, ect.
2018-03-27 20:35
Nah no way you can put them above him. Coldzera yes. Snax has been good at times, but he has massive drop offs, and is only ever good for bursts of form when VP are on top. Flusha has been great at majors, but again he has had massive dips in form over the years, and when Fnatic was at their best, he wasn't even a top 2 player on his team (Olof and Krimz were by far the best overall). KennyS, while fantastic, has much less high placings than shox, and even though his peak has arguably been higher than Shox's, he has only hit that level once, for a 2-3 month period, where he then went on to have a massive slump, and only in the past 12ish months has he looked world class again. F0rest and Get_Right don't deserve to be named with the others. They were outstanding for the first 2 years of CS:GO, when competitive was very poor. As soon as it started to heat up massively late 2014, they have been average at best, sometimes just downright poor (Get_Right for the last 2 years). The only thing we've seen from F0rest and Get_Right in the last 3.5 years was extremely brief flash in the pan performances that sometimes don't even last a full bo3. Shox has returned time and time again to being a top 3 player in the world. He did it in 2012/13 with Verygames, later on with Epsilon/LDLC in 2014, winning the major too then. In 2016 he came back to being a top 3 player in the world with ScreaM as his entry duo, and he was phenomenal. No other player in the pro scene who has played as long as Shox has returned to world class status as many times as him. There are obviously arguments for other players, but this is why I believe he would be top 3 over the ones you mentioned.

I'd put him at the edge of top5 You can argue that Flusha and Snax had higher impact
2018-03-27 20:22
Nah no way. Flusha and Snax have historically been great at majors, but there's more to the whole scene than that. Don't think there's a reasonable argument to put them above Shox.
2018-03-27 20:24
KennyS, Get_Right, Coldzera, Flusha, Olof probably better than shox throughout cs:go all in all. Then we have Snax, Krimz, Device, F0rest that are probably same level throughout the game all in all.
2018-03-27 22:20
Cold and Olof yes, the others definitely not. Just look at shox's stats over the years and his achievements. I'll refer you to my post above that I replied to Proverb, as my arguments for Shox at #3 are there.

Whats wrong with faze? Top 1 from along time, All teams just read their strats and go. It's hard for them but i'm sure they'll bounce back to top and start winning.
2018-03-27 17:49
The problem with Faze is not bouncing back to top because they haven't win a major yet. They are easily one of the most individually talented teams in the world but they are too easily tilted.

They didnt replace him for bad performance youre really out of the loop it seems. Shox was g2's best player in 2018 while igleading. Bc g2 was doing bad he wanted to remove nbk and apex for a real igl ( ex6 ) and smithzz
2018-03-27 16:38

The main question wasn't if mixwell was a better or a worse fragger than shox. Both can frag. The main question was if NBK could be more efficient than shox as a strat caller. Nothing else is interesting in this case.

I think this is the first time HLTV has done an "X vs Y" video which isn't just a round in which both players made a good play. Making it about shox and mixwell, who have no rivalry and no real history together or against each other just feels very weird. It could maybe work if both were really good pistol players or really good awpers, so that we could compare similar frags. Like imagine a GuardiaN vs oskar video with exclusively AWP frags, for example. I believe that would make more sense than shox vs mixwel. A shox vs mixwell video hinges on there being a rivalry between them after the roster change, but there is none

Dude it's just a fun video, it compares them as players because they both play/ed for G2. Have you watched "trace vs Delpan by HUd". I got inspired by it to create this, no one hated trace's rifle highlights vs Delpan's awp frags.

2018-03-27 19:38
wow they have the same statsm but i think they are different players anyways. unlucky not see shox and mixwell together gl G2!
2018-03-27 19:41
What a dumbass video. Mixwell played what? 2 maps with G2? And hardly impressed TBH Apart from that, T3 NA CS and WESG vs shit teams. I like mixwell, but sorry, pathetic video and comparison. Shox carried the shit out of G2 before he left and hes still got what it takes to perform at the top level

Damn mixwell's highlight videos are so underwhelming compared to shox's. Not saying mixwell's bad, its amazing. But shox is arguably the one with the best,most insane jaw dropping, and looked impossible highlights in csgo.

i think shox better

Fragmovies are obviously a bad way to tell who's better for G2, it's a frag highlight reel. However, it is a fun thing to watch. Next time use the other better half of shox's frags. it doesn't matter if he looks clearly better in a fragmovie with all of their best highlights, but that's how it should be.

its unfair to put them up against like this. Though mixwell has a lot of potential it seems right for G2 heading that direction . Plus shox will have his new roster soon so it will be for the best
