mixwell allowed to explore options as G2 ponder new lineup

Striker
May 28th, 2018 16:29

As G2 are in the process of updating their lineup, they have allowed Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas to explore other options.

The Spaniard has been part of the organization on a trial basis since March, replacing Richard "shox" Papillon in the active roster after G2's former in-game leader had wished the team to undergo more drastic lineup changes to improve their results.

The Frenchmen proceeded to exit DreamHack Masters Marseille in last place and, earlier this month, IEM Sydney in 7th-8th place. As a result, the organization is now looking to update their lineup again, allowing mixwell to search for opportunities elsewhere.

mixwell will now look for new opportunities

According to the announcement, G2 will soon release details on the new roster, which will attend ECS Season 5 Finals on June 8-10 in London, United Kingdom.

Reports from Flickshot.fr suggest that Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire are also on the way out, with shox and Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux about to enter the active lineup alongside Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans.

"The decision-making process to define the final line-up that will represent G2 Esports moving forward has started. While this occurs, we wish to give Oscar the opportunity to explore any options on the market." coach Jérôme "NiaK" Sudries said in a statement.

"It is important for us to make it clear that Oscar has been an incredible teammate ever since he joined us for a trial and in a particular context which has undoubtedly added difficulties for him to show his full potential.

"His maturity, his worth ethic but also his ability to adapt to a new role and all of that in a language that he hasn’t practiced for years makes Oscar a player of a rare value in CS:GO. We have no doubts that he will find success in the upcoming years, regardless whether he ends up in G2’s final lineup or not."

0/8 The duo was deadly only because G2 had no offensive sniper. Now they want to attack using kennyS or a supportive rifler + shox. shox about ScreaM: youtube.com/embed/iDXZfpD2_SA?cc_load_po.. youtube.com/embed/t_-gdeSoPJ0?cc_load_po..

Shox is retarded , they already have 2 supports , 3 with bodyy They have SmiThZz (BOT) , Ex6tenz , he will be the IGL , but he don't have skills to compete in tier 1 scene so he will be a support player , and now they have bodyy , they need a Entry Fragger with a good aim (ScreaM) , but nooo , let's have 3 support players with 0 firepower.. xDDDD
2018-05-28 22:38
> they need a Entry Fragger with a good aim (ScreaM) ScreaM's having never played as the primary entry makes a reasonable person think it's not the role he's comfortable at or willing to play. Look at this: i.imgur.com/8rBF7KZ.jpg ========== Proofs: ========== VeryGames/Titan: hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/openingkil.. Kinguin: hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/openingkil.. G2: hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/openingkil.. nV with xms & SIXER: hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/openingkil.. nV with hAdji & kioShiMa: hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/openingkil.. shox wants only 2 stars - 1 AWPer (kennyS) and 1 rifler (shox), the others should be able to do everything, for him SmithZz and bodyy are such players, for me it's NBK and kioShiMa, but since shox loves SmithZz and nV won't let kio go for free, we will be forced to watch SmithZz & bodyy play at least till the end of the major.

I feel like they got bodyy as the fifth only to be able to play at the major and if they don't perform they'll kick him right after the major.
2018-05-28 17:44
Their whole view at how it should be built is failure-friendly. They want 2 attackers and 3 supporters, I might see the world in which a team with NBK and kio as 2 "supporters" (+Ex6) might work out, but SmithZz is just not a good enough rifler and bodyy is not either, so their chance to succeed is really small.
2018-05-28 17:49
#143
 | 
Romania dEkO.O 
I doubt that if they kick bodyy they'll go for another supportive player because they would know that it doesn't work with 3 support players. So either they succeed with bodyy or they kick him and get a better fragger as the fifth.
2018-05-28 17:57
Ex6 said his "dream" lineup would include SmithZz & NBK, shox said he wanted bodyy because bodyy did whatever his IGL wanted him to, so they want 2 obedient riflers and only 2 stars (shox + kennyS). To me it looks weird, concerning that the strongest VG/Titan lineup had only 1 supportive rifler (NBK). I don't believe in the project, not enough firepower - easy loss to Astralis.

this team dont have 2 attackers and 3 supporters....they have 5 players with a capacity to play in different roles.....watch the shox interview and you will see....
2018-05-28 18:14
Dude, whatever tactic you play - you need enough firepower to make kills, because you won't blow up the bomb as a T and won't prevent the bomb from exploding as CT if you get killed. Astralis has both firepower and strats, G2 will have only strats. Astralis with Magisk: hltv.org/stats/lineup/players?lineup=495.. You won't defeat them by only shox and kennyS.

2018-05-28 16:43
Wasn't the last time he did anything relevant and was playing at his best when he was in NA though? Tbh I dunno if he really has much choice; can't think of much for EU options for him right now above tier 3.
2018-05-28 16:48
You’re right. OpTic was fantastic at that point as well! He knows rush and Tarik since that stint, they also worked well together. Now with skadoodle and autimatic this lineup would be sick. C9 is what mixwell needs for his career and mixwell is what c9 needs to get back on track and fast!

2018-05-28 16:46
It's pretty sure that the lineup will be Happy/RpK/ApEX/NBK, they left nV together. And my bet is that NBK will lead, so happy can take pleasure playing again. Pretty sure it will be that if ZyWOo isn't joining and Happy AWP. If ZyWOo joins, it's less sure, but still my bet, Happy going back to full lurk mode.

A bit disappointed for kio, in that case but to me 3 players from NV (and 2, aka apEX and NBK, from G2), would definitely would be too much considering the big fail that NV was. And one spot has to be for ZywOo, so yeah i guess mixwell won't be in that team, but 2 players from NV might still be more than what we'll get.
2018-05-28 16:49
5th has to be an Awper (Happy doesn't seem to want to be full awper, he prefered 5Rifle style in nV), that's why no k1o. Rolewise, think RpK fits better than him as 5th. Lineup would be : NBK Support/IGL Happy lurk ZyWOo Awp RPK/ApEX Entries
2018-05-28 16:53

France StickyRice 
I don't know if they plan to be in NV's org so if it's the case i guess we will see at least 2 players from current NV line up in that new roster. Still think 3 players from NV (aka no ZywOo, no mixwell, and apEX + NBK to complete the line up) would likely end up as some sort of fail considering they didn't do shit with a decent line up (sure ScreaM has been (very) disappointing considering his potential, but hAdji was pretty decent so no way to say that NV had bad players).
2018-05-28 16:54
Seems it won't be under nV tag, both Happy and RpK not in active lineup anymore.
