swag leaves Torqued

MIRAA
May 23rd, 2018 21:06

Braxton "swag" Pierce is no longer part of Torqued's active roster, the North American player has revealed.

In a Twitlonger post, the 21-year-old revealed that he needs "a mental reset" and admitted that his return to competition since ESL lifted the indefinite match-fixing bans handed before February 2015 "has been underwhelming."

The announcement comes just days after Torqued's group stage exit at DreamHack Open Tours following defeats to Gambit and AGO, with swag averaging a 1.02 rating - the second highest in the team.

swag leaves Torqued to grind his way back into form

His decision leaves Torqued in a race against time to find a replacement, with the team set to travel to Brazil in just two weeks to compete at ESL One Belo Horizonte.

"I don't want to go into details why I'm making this decision and I know the timing is really bad as they have a big tourney coming up in Brazil, but I don't think there was a good time to make this choice," swag wrote.

"I still have love for the players and wish them the best of luck.

"I know I am capable of way more and I just need to keep grinding. For now, I will start streaming and playing FPL/Rank S to try and reach my potential and consider other offers that come my way."

With swag's departure, Torqued now have:

All was good and well until I read this: consider other offers that come my way." Meaning he thinks he can get a better team and that he thinks his weed problem isn't a problem
2018-05-23 21:28
"Consider" is just his way of being optimistic. It's not like he'll get any good offers with the ban tainting his name forever.

They had still played in the competitive scene on other teams for awhile. Also the reason they were picked up by big names is because they were up and coming talents. swag is not an up and coming talent; he is a has-been.

Wrong comparison,we are not talking about the quality of brax's plays or the quality of the soup in your shitty comparison. We are talking about what decision Bras/ A chef should make. You hltv users pay attention to Cs go news,might watch some majors and tournaments or ten minutes highlights on YouTube occasionally. But do you have a team analysts to analyze the gameplay? Or do you even review the whole demo after demo and able to analyze who is playing good or bad? Not even to talk about the mental mindset pro players are striving for??? Why do you ignorant hltv users think you are to have a much more legitimate ground than this NA prodigy who has have years of experience being a top pro player??? Back to your stupid chef example,if we are to compare Brad and a chef, we are talking about whether the chef is taking a break from his cooking. And his decision to leave is so that he can cook better after his leave. Not about shitty soup. And Bras rating is second best in torqued so please before you spew those stupid shits please think about them first.
2018-05-24 07:42
Whe the fuck is "Brad" lmao? Actually it's more like the chef leaving a good paid chefs job to stream himself making cup noodles and microwave pizza in his shitty kitchenette. "NA prodigy" lmao get the fuck outta here. Most overrated kid in the scene, barely positive LAN rating against tier 3-4 teams. Forever a pug star, guess thats why he gave up playing in a team to return to pugging. Fucking re-ban IBP, bunch of entitled shitheads. Everyone wanted to "free" Dazed and swag, well where are they now? Same place they were before, except now everyone knows they're shit

1."Brad" is an autocorrect mistake,but if you criticise me for something that small and trivial that means you are naive and have very little openings on my logical flaws and you don't have much to criticise me on,and I am sure you still get my point and know who I am referring to so I guess this trivial mistake won't barricade me from elaborating on my points unless you are mentally retarded. Which I am suspecting. 2. "Brax is a NA prodigy" is a publicly acclaimed opinion among Cs go analysts and Cs go scene in general. Even fallen once approved swag as the best player in cloud in CS summit season 1. However it is your narrow and personal opinion whether brax is overrated or not. It is you against the general Cs go scene. So don't complain that against me. 3.i see you are quite angry in your ignorant bubble. So let me tell you that swag is the second best rated player in Torqued. His skills and experience to some extend is ensured. And who are you to say they are "entitled shitheads " when you are just as entitled to your own opinion as a self-righteous little shit?. Your points and stance have nothing to substantiate with nothing but personal opinions and lack elaboration and examples to support. "Same place they were before" ? You are saying? Now they are unbanned they can choose to return or quite before that they don't have that choice to make. Swag can still join other NA team unlike you here simply talking trash and full of shits. No facts to support whatsoever. Pathetic.
2018-05-24 09:22
What a load of nonsense. You want facts? Here are the facts: swag has a 1.02 LAN rating in 2018. That is against mostly low tier teams, boosted against shit teams like Swole Patrol, Rise Nation and eUnited. It is also the 3rd highest in Torqued, not 2nd highest. You're counting online, which is irrelevant because online they face literal nonamers and mix teams. Torqued achieved NOTHING of substance, ever. Everyone who once called swag an "NA prodigy" has stopped doing that a long time ago. It was based on the fact that swag was decent several years ago, and had some highlight clips from rank S. Now he's shit, and no one except inbred fanboys cares about him. If swag is such an "NA prodigy" as you suggest then I guess teams should be fucking lining up to sign him, but no, no one wants him. He only got a place in tier 4-5 shit teams together with his thrower friends. The rest of the NA scene don't want to touch him with a stick now that they see how much he sucks. C9 were even more interested in him before he was unbanned than they are now lmao. That only tells us one thing: he was overrated as fuck, and now he's another nobody streamer.

1.1Rating can only be used to illustrate and how it will be illustrated is affected by millions of factors. Including how you want to manipulate them. Maybe the role he is playing isn't suitable for him? Maybe he pressured himself too much or the team chemistry or IGL in Torqued isn't fitting for him or his performance is declining because of aging? Again,you are just a hltv user. Not a pro player,not an analyst not a coach or anyone who had enough experience and skills to have the qualification to say who is playing bad and who isn't. Stewie2k was one of the best player in NA and after he joined SK gaming his rating has been unstable. But is he a bad player?? It is hard to defined since there are many things affecting his performance including but not limited to: language barrier(Brazilian vs American) /systematic differences between CLOUD9 and SK gaming play style and many other things. If you are just here talking shit because his RATING is low then you are no different with other ignorant hltv users who talk all shits but not enough consideration. 1.2 Not counting online matches is a ludicrous mindset. Because if you don't play those online qualifier how the fuck can you end up on LAN??!! Torqued isn't one of those top 20 teams that will get an invite from ESL or dream hack easily. In the light of that swag is still the second best player in torqued. 1.3 torqued achieved nothing of substance is an idiotic statement. They qualify for dream hack and some other small LANs I don't see you achieving anything here except talking shits. Yes I agree swag has stopped being the best in NA for a long time. But having seen him being banned for so long it is really possible that his performance will decline. Esports is not something you can do for the rest of your life after all. Then again there are many factors which can explain his dropping rating except saying "he is shit he is overrated" like some brain-dead people would say. AND THAT "NA PRODIGY" IS JUST USED TO ILLUSTRATE MY POINT. Point is,how the fuck you hltv users get the qualifications to say brax,with so many experience as a pro player is making the wrong decision by taking a leave of absence. Are you all hltv users some sort of pro players? coaches? Analysts? Subjective opinions do not equal to truths: "He only got a place in tier 4-5 shit teams together with his thrower friends. The rest of the NA scene don't want to touch him with a stick now that they see how much he sucks. C9 were even more interested in him before he was unbanned than they are now lmao. " The most reasonable reason why cloud9 and other top teams won't take him initially is because he is still being banned by valve. Which means that cloud9 would be prohibited from playing major. Why would any top teams want that to happen to their team?? Again: please take second thoughts before you post those stupid shits.

Dude stop the fanboy argument. Tryptamine dropped some truth bombs you like it or not. Swag in 2018 is not a top team caliber by miles of distance. His team has accomplished nothing within almost one year and not because he was carrying and ir was his teammates fault, he has been as underwhelming as Steel or AZK. Top teams dont want him not just because of the ban. His poor performances do a lot as well and now you have to add some behaviour issues as well in the mix. But I guess kids would still keep watching his streams because he is a pugstar 'NA prodigy' lmao. You know what I'm glad ESL lifted the ban so people could realise in 2018 he is not a top player whatsoever and everybody can stop with the 'free brax' nonsense. Fuck those throwers. We didnt need them in the community and we still dont need them now.

1. I clarified I am not his fan in my previous reply to the "truthbomber" aka "Tryptamine ",that I admireED his skills and respect his decision as a pro player. Unlike the rest of you here saying "lmao"/"lmao"/"ROFL" when he is having his career slump which every pro player have. And it is not our position to oversee what is right and wrong for brax when we don't even have the qualifications to justify his decisions for him. 2. Also in my previous comment I wrote "the reason why the top teams INITIALLY don't want him is because..." I believed I have used the word "initially" suggesting that I suspect some top teams might not want him now. Which is my suspicion and I do not count that as a "FACT". Because I am not mentally retarded and easily mix up " highly likely / highly possible" with "absolute truths" like the rest of you here. And I did acknowledged the fact that his performance is declining and tried to guess the reasons behind that (aging/team chemistry/IGL coordination etc)in my previous replies also. Just because you don't forgive him for IBP incident it doesn't mean the rest of us can't. And on top of that,even though I admit he ruined the Cs go scene for a while. I believe there are redemptions for sinners. Brax is no exception. What kind of crime do you think he committed? Huh? Raping? Killing? I hated those throws before but their prime as a pro player has been wasted in life ban. And I don't see they enjoyed those years of waiting either. As a matter of fact they suffer heavily from it. Imagine you still practicing game that brought you shame and u don't even know if you are allowed to play professionally again. That would be hard to bear. And if you think second best rated player in a team is playing bad then what do you want for the rest of the low rated 3 players??? Please look into the data before you talk shits about someone.

Increasing confidence would be the only thing really, but if you need to have your confidence increased by beating people in rank S who hardly gives a rats arse in 2018 about pugging, we are reaching a point where it gets a little out of substance for him. He should know his playstyle after so many years. It's not like he weren't playing CS during the time of his ban. Read above for the middle paragraph. Same answer. Who I am? A person that has been playing CS since the very dawn of the game in it's oldest form. I don't need to be Coldzera, I know the game. You don't need to compete on a pro level to know the game inside out, I just focused on a career inside a job that would secure my future better.

Oh you know the game very well? But what about the pro player?? I guess you were a pro huh? A pro like swag probably? Everybody have their own story and situation. So they make decisions different from everybody else. Who are you to judge? I am not saying that(swag play pug to gain confidence) is one of THE POSSIBILITIES. Not absolutely true. Yes he knew his playstlyle. But pug and pro level counter strike still have lots of differences. Just because you are good individually doesn't mean you are good as team player. Maybe he is trying find out something that he hasn't revealed? Stop forcing your way into other people's shoes and pretend you are the right one. It makes you cringy and naive. I am no fans of swag but I do admired his skills. And I believe swag speaks for himself. Not you not other hltv users and not even anyone professional as a coach / analyst other than swag himself. Conclusion:you can day I THINK swag is bad player but you can't say swag IS a bad player. Please find out the differences between fact and opinions.

"I think calling people cringy and naive makes you cringy and naive. " Sir you have nothing to substantiate upon that opinion at all. Needless to say I am no convinced. It is an opinion. Not a fact nor it is an argument. I am the one forcing opinions huh? What proof do you have except "you feel like it is" ? Did I used words like "you should think that..." Or "it will be only right for you to think that"?? I am talking about logic here,because if you say "swag is a bad player"or "I think swag is a bad player" . There are no difference. It is still your opinions. I simply took all the logic flaws I can find. Which are plenty in lots of replies. Maybe I am simply being logical and convincing?

Semi-pro a long, long time ago. I'm not judging, I'm making logical statements deprived from what I've seen. A little knowledge of everything goes a long way. Irrelevant what you said, in the second paragraph, I wasn't implying it wasn't meant only as a possibility. Come again. You literally just confirmed what I said was correct there, there IS a big difference between playing on a pro level and playing pugs. So why go back to rank S then? It will make 0 difference whatsoever, he just have to stop slumping and get back on his level which is only achieved by playing good/better teams. Pugs is all about individual skill, if you haven't noticed. "Cringe" is a term used by 10 year olds, please spare me. The only people calling me cringy and naive for real usually is people that lost their arguments. Funny that. Where did I say he was a bad player? He is just slumping. It's normal for any player to slump. I just said if he thinks rank S is going to bring him to a state of yes please, I think he overvalues how much rank S means to people in 2018.

The differences between PUG and pro match is used to illustrate that there might not be any correlation between player's confidence and playing PUG. Not to prove you correct. Because you made assumptions about swag which is your own assumption and unreliable. "So why go back to rank S then? It will make 0 difference whatsoever" this is a subjective statement you make about a person you don't entirely know. "Logical statement" are still your assumptions and opinions,unreliable. You didn't mean it as a non possibility. But your choice of word and tone exposed you. " he just have to stop slumping and get back on his level which is only achieved by playing good/better teams. Pugs is all about individual skill, " It might work for you but it is not necessarily true for brax. PUG is "ALL"(overstatement here) individual skills is not necessarily true. It is your OPINION. Semi-professional you said,assuming it is true. Is brax a SEMI-PRO PLAYER?? ARE YOU FAMILIAR EITH THE NA PRO SCENE? HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED WHAT BRAX HAD EXPERIENCED?? AGAIN,all I wanted is for all of you to stop seeing your subjective opinions as truth. I can give you lots of examples of overstatements feel free to ask me.

It doesn't really matter what it was intended to do, because it did prove that. So what you really are doing right now is wasting your time. Dude, wake up for 2 seconds yes? The game is not well. It's slowly dying atm. Regarding rank S pugging, players have been complaining that seriousness levels are lower than they used to be, and interest levels in pugging in general isn't at the same place as it used to be. His plans can quickly get spoiled if Valve doesn't fix what is going on. It's much better to just play better teams, it's much better training, because they will take it seriously. It's his decision to not do it with Torqued, any serious team with the required skill can fill the same gap, but it doesn't change it's better. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. It's better training. Don't deny that. It will show lack of understanding of the game. Really dude? "You didn't mean it as a non possibility. But your choice of word and tone exposed you." - English is my second language, and I usually don't care what choice of word I'm using. I'm doing as I see fit. Right now you're concluding based on nothing, and that will earn you a fist in the face in real life. I am no man of violence, so it's not a threat from me. But take it as some kind of an advice. I'm mixing opinion with fact, I can't see what the problem is. It's a fact training against better teams instead of just pugging for individual skill gets you further. It's a tactical-based game. You need teamwork against the high class tier 1 teams. It's also a fact many pros do not take pugging seriously. It's also - again - a fact that the game is slowly ticking off right now, hence many doesn't really care as much as they did a few years ago. You're good at talking and writing - I'll give you that much - but it's sadly very clear to me you're fanboying, albeit you being very subtle about it.

"It doesn't really matter what it was intended to do, because it did prove that. So what you really are doing right now is wasting your time. " From start to finish you didn't specify what is "it" making it very confusing. I can't reply to what I don't understand. "Game is dying" does not necessarily mean pugging is more ineffective. Everything works differently for everyone. YOU CANT SPEAK FOR OTHERS JUST LIKE I CANT SPEAK FOR YOURSELF FOR WHAT IS "it" in your first paragraph. "Pugging is less effective than training" IS AN OPINION, just like the opinion I have on your opinion. Also training is better,maybe it is just for you. But maybe not for swag. Don't you think he would do what's best for his future? What position are you in to tell what's better? Being a proclaimed SEMI-PRO player might make the situation relatable.But certainly not decisional. "His plan would quickly get spoiled by valve". How in the world you know about swag's plan? Can't he be just awaiting for another team option while pugging to maintain his game sense and skills? Just because English is your second language it doesn't justify your choice of words. It can only indicate your choice of words are limited but certainly not being irresponsible and disregard your tone and choice of words. English is also my second language. But before I speak for myself I always think twice. About the logics and tones. Instead of spewing incoherent babbling like most of the hltv users here. I think twice because I am responsible for my words and I do not pussy out and say it is my second language to doge bullets. It is still your responsibilities to be paying attention at the language you are going to use in the future. Whether you realize it or not. I am fanboying? Thats again,is your opinion about me. No evidence to prove whatsoever. Just like your any other points mentioned before. And you are mixing opinions with more opinions,not fact. Team work and individual skills are both important. But it is not your place as a semi pro to decided for swag which is better. If you did decided for him that is just your opinions. Not FACTS.

Well go back and look at the existing paragraphs then, it's easy to understand what I meant. And what are these strawmen you're clinging to? If you are serious about this, I have to say wow. Every professional (or valid in general) factlisting for what has happened in the past, what is happening now and what most likely will happen when someone makes a decision would apparently to you be invalid. How come? Are you jealous? Are you mad? Oblivious maybe? I wouldn't be able to tell. The only thing I can and will somewhat agree with, is that you can possibly keep your skill and stuff up whilst playing pugs while waiting for a new team, but since there are a lot who doesn't take pugging very serious anymore, you will probably find that it's easier than facing teams who really wants to win to achieve their goal. This can make you weaker. But it's not guaranteed. I must refer to the 3 facts I listed, they are pretty much true. And if you are trolling, 8/8.

And if you can't even do that then we have nothing to discuss upon. And your second paragraph is full of grammatical errors. Among your whatever that is you still manage to call me out as "jealous"/"mad"/"wow". It occurs to me that you are losing it and frustrated because you are having troubles framing opinions into facts. And it is also your opinions that ppl these days don't take pugging srsly. You have no data to back you up whatsoever. So again those are opinions and self-proclaimed "facts" at its best. Not even close to facts. Just becoz you used " it is guaranteed" it doesn't mean it is. I can add what ever bullshits and end it with a "it is guaranteed" and it still won't be true. It occurs to me that you are the troll. So nice job and congrats. Nice trolls. If you are still mixing up opinions with facts/do not substantiate your points and provide examples then I will not waste my breathe replying to a loser holding on to his weak argument.

It occurs to me that you have your own head too far up your own arse, so here, take this: 8/8. You fulfilled your purpose in this thread, congrats troll :) now begone. Stop replying with your nonsensical bollocks lol, I will end up dying from laughter :D. And before you ask for examples, here's one: "becoz" - wtf lol. I hope you'll understand this game someday, I mean yeah it can't be easy being a newbie. I have been there once upon a time. It's fine though :) keep going sir.

You misunderstood him lol. He meant he had to grind his way back to his form where he can reach his potential, right now his performance is underwhelming. He's just saying that he will consider offers that come to him, hinting to teams that he's a free agent and is open to offers. You dumb uneducated fuck.

He became a legendary 1.6 player and then had a pretty successful career in csgo for an American. Probably better than the life you've lived.

There is a reason why he plateaued in late 1.6/ csgo, he could have been a top player internationally but lacked motivation with smoking weed all the time. And attacking my personal life is childish, guess the only people who can critique things are those better than the person they are critiquing? ....
2018-05-25 03:05
Swag was never a legendary 1.6 player. He was considered an upcoming US talent, but he was by no means legendary. He came into the scene right at the very end, so he really never got a chance to show if he was worth the hype or not (spoiler: he wasn't).
2018-05-25 03:24
He had the potential to be one of the best 1.6 players, he wasn't even top10. Legendary in NA
2018-05-24 05:47
weed destroyed n0things and now swags career. ban this evil drug! #makeNAcsgreatagain

Do you know he still has a major ban right? And C9 has legend status for the next major so... Torqued was starting to compete against tier 3 teams with some international relevance. It just happen that they are worse than these squads like godsent, ago or gambit. I dont think better teams than torqued are gonna get interested in swag to be honest

He never carried C9. He is capable of a good game every now and then. C9 ELEAGUE Major win: hltv.org/stats/teams/players/5752/Cloud9..
2018-05-24 22:18
what the fuck is your point? because its irrelevant;stew instantly showed his potential at his first lan altough it was his initial lan on the other hand i just see worse swag lan by lan we all witnessed his insane,fucking 200 iq youtube clips but apparently it doesnt really help him on offical matches

lul good luck with that. Good player, maybe a little overrated though. Notice how all the praise for brax stopped when he got back to competing? Interesting to see if A. He does become stellar and B. any orgs bite the bullet on missing majors in favour of having him.

they fixed one match in their life.... then someone like steel and dazed were donating to charity, they were helping community by showing new tactics and grenades... and someone like you is calling them fags.. what have you done for cs community??? just sitting on your fat ass and talking shit?
2018-05-23 23:05
abuse is still abuse if kqly or cly do anything you mentioned - to me they will need to stay banned anyway, because rules apply to everybody, no matter what race/sex/orientation/height/weight he/she is and no matter what he/she had done before or has been doing after it cheaters win when they shouldn't, throwers lose when they shouldn't, both mess with results and get what they shouldn't, that's why to me it's the same

Don't understand it..go and play the tournament in Brazil. Torqued has improved every step of the way this season and were so much better with steel leading the team. Unless koosta has informed the team that this will be his last tournament because he has signed with c9 or unless brax has received word from or has a pending lawsuit against Valve due to the fact that he was a minor at the time of his ban and his Major ban is being lifted this makes no sense. My guess is Torqued will be dead soon. Pollo has to be on the chopping block and koosta will join a Pro League roster. AZK will go back to tier 3 games and steel will stream again.
2018-05-23 22:19

This is a bit of a dick move by swag imo, it seems like this kid thinks he is entitled. What you had, you don't have any more, only yourself to blame son. The sooner he realises he fucked up and just gets over it, the better for him and any of his future team mates. Grow some fucking nuts, take some responsibility for your actions and go fucking get some instead of moaning like a little bitch!!
