maLeK joins G2 as coach for ESL One New York

September 24th, 2018 18:23

G2 have announced that Damien "maLeK" Marcel will coach their team at ESL One New York.

The 32-year-old will be taking over from Jérôme "NiaK" Sudries, who is now described by G2 as being the team's manager after transitioning to a coaching role in March, when Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux stepped down from his position as coach to play competitively again.

maLeK is mostly known for his time with Envy, whom he most notably guided to a first-place finish at DreamHack Open Atlanta 2017 and to playoff appearances at the ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals and ELEAGUE Premier 2017.

maLeK will coach G2 in New York

After being released by the North American organisation, in May, he joined 3DMAX, helping the team to a 5th-6th place finish at the Europe Minor, where they beat LeftOut, a line-up featuring former Envy players.

According to G2, maLeK's appointment represents "an effort to improve" the team's performance before the organisation "begin exploring longer term commitments". The French team recently attended the FACEIT Major, going out in the New Legends Stage with a 2-3 record after losing to compLexity, MIBR and FaZe.

“I am glad to reunite with these boys and I am asking nothing but the best from them," he told G2's website. "We’ve spent a few days together already and I am looking forward to seeing them in action.

"There is a clear idea of where we are heading and the process behind it is all that matters. I trust them to start things here in NYC.”

G2 have been drawn in Group B of ESL One New York, along with FaZe, Liquid and NRG. In their first match, they will take on Finn "karrigan" Andersen's side, to whom they lost 2-0 in London.

The French team will attend ESL One New York, later this week, with:

France Richard "shox" Papillon
France Kenny "kennyS" Schrub
France Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro
France Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux
Belgium Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans

NV wasn’t relevant because happy is literally the worst IGL to coach, malek probably turned up every day with a stratbook and happy was like “nah I think sending everyone A while I lurk B is better”

I have some hopes but i dont want to overrate the team, they still have some preparation to do as SmithZz said.
2018-09-24 18:43
No amount of preparation will make their weak players viable in the top tier. They can't really play with smithzz, ex6tenz and bodyy in the same team if they hope to be a top5 team. Keep ex6tenz IGL and change the other two, then we got something to talk about.

2018-09-24 18:26
It can. Look at Na'Vi with Zeus and Edward. The only guy that has to go is bodyy. It's the most realistic scenario. Then they should get either ScreaM (preferred for his sheer firepower), or they get Kio (which I think is more likely to happen).

2018-09-24 18:30

2018-09-24 21:55
You should know -SmithZz will never happen So the best thing to happen is -bodyy and +ScreaM or +Kio. They are both better anyways. ScreaM would join in a heartbeat.
2018-09-25 00:12
Whats the point of kicking bodyy? Just to put Kio or ScreaM? The point for me is by kicking smithz and ex6tenz cuz they dont are good at all. btw for me Kio is overrated af, always baiting and I think thats why nobody in france want to play with him anymore. ScreaM is good but its all.
2018-09-25 02:02
These guys needed a leader, that's why they added Ex6TenZ. It's no surprise all of a sudden alot of players in the french scene want to play under Ex6 again. Even NBK, someone who has said in the past that Ex6 was seriously overrated, and never wanted to play under him again, now puts him in his theoretical dreamteam. Surely that means something. Ex6 has reinvented himself as an IGL during his time in LDLC. Before he got kicked from G2 he doubted himself. His time in LDLC gave him his confidence back. He got those guys into EPL, always evaded relegation danger, and even almost made it to the finals with them. These guys are t3 at best. The moment they kicked him they got relegated instantly. Ex6 can add massively to G2, simply because he's willing to put in the work no other player atm will do. He's a true leader, and the other players see him as such. As for SmithZz, you can't get rid of him if you don't wanna get rid of shox. That's just how it is. But you don't HAVE to get rid of him. He adds way more to the team than bodyy does, he has alot more experience, and as a support player he does his job just fine. Having bodyy on top of that is too much. Na'Vi works in very much the same way. They have 2 weak fraggers, being Zeus as an IGL, and Edward as an experienced support player. Then they have the firepower in s1mple, electronic and flamie. They are currently the #2 team in the world. G2 could be like that. 2 weaker fraggers as an experienced IGL and an experienced support player (who to be fair aren't even that bad as everyone makes them out to be), and then the firepower with shox, KennyS and ScreaM. And as I said before, keeping SmithZz keeps shox happy. But really for now all this roster needs is time. They need more events and matches. They need time to really get used to their stratbook, expand on it, work on their map pool and generally get used to playing with each other as a team.
2018-09-25 02:42
+1 I agree with everything you said, what g2 needs is just a little bit more firepower, adding screaM would lessen the burden on shox and kennyS and those 3 would be the superstars of the team. Even once in a while smithzz gets to show what he is made of, like that game vs faze in d2 and on inferno vs navi when he beat s1mple on a 1v1 aim duel lol.
2018-09-25 03:16
+1 Glad you agree :)
2018-09-25 03:38
Watch the last game vs faze and tell me how many aim duels ex6, body and smithz had won. Hell they can't even aim. I say kick those 3. Replace them with better aimers. Even 3dmax players are good players comepared to those 3.

Not every player on the team has to be a god at aiming. Like I said, Na'Vi proves this. But having 3 weaker players on a lineup and expect shox and KennyS to hard carry will never work. The most likely player to go should be bodyy on order to get ScreaM. If by any slight chance shox changes his mind about SmithZz they could get Kio. But imo, Ex6 doesn't have to get kicked, atleast not yet. Not even SmithZz is a necessity right now. If he can just support the 3 stronger players, that's all he needs to do. All they lack is one more strong player.

2018-09-25 09:44
Yeah sorry about that lol, I tend to get carried away when talking about this :D
2018-09-25 12:26
Ex6TenZ its ok, good IGL and not the best aimers but still can frag, but SmithZz? .... shox needs to get over of him for the sake of France
2018-09-25 14:38
That would be the ideal situation yeah. But I don't think it'll happen :/
2018-09-25 15:19

KRL would have been wayyyyyy better, maleK may be a good guy he does not have a right personality to coach. And stop blame SmithZz, a few days ago ScreaM said that he is an amazing teammate to play with. -bodyy +ScreaM and KRL as coach would have been a way better option.

shox is so pathetic, he does not want to admit he was wrong - with SmithZz, with Ex6TenZ, and now he still tries to prove that he was right and they just lacked a coach, fucking LOL fuck, admit your fault, move on and finally decide - do you wanna win titles or you wanna play with a friend, obviously you can't do both, you don't call anymore and you don't have ScreaM madcarrying like in 2016 (and even that was enough only for a single event, which means it wasn't enough at all, but now they don't even have that), you should get rid of Ex6TenZ (a successful caller will become a failure one day - pronax, Neo, but a failure will never become successful) and SmithZz (God he's bad) if you wanna have a chance to win anything, forget that bullshit you had with NBK and gather your successful team, you gave a chance to a guy that had been a failure for 4 years, but you gave no chance to a guy that you always came to to gather a difference making team (LDLC, G2), and if it's only about having fun then stop bullshitting kennyS because the guy deserves to win and he believes in your bullshit for a reason I can't get

Well said but shoxie is French and he is affected to Botzzzz. They love each other.
2018-09-24 21:27
Pretty sure no one is forcing KennyS to stay
2018-09-25 00:15
I didn't tell anything about force, shox convinced kennyS of Ex6TenZ ability to succeed (somehow......) and NBK's no ability to succeed, yeah kennyS should've been smarter but shox should understand that his decision-making is wrong in 99% of cases - yes he was right to kick Ex6TenZ from G2, but he was wrong to think he could lead a titles-winning team, he admitted that and was right, but he fucked up NBK that in the end started to show signs of a good team, ok it was online at ECS but G2 online lost to Windigo after having had the same amount of time for pracc and preparation, their only good match in those 4 months was on dust2 against Astralis, yeah they all suddenly hit too may shots and Astralis had problems, but it was just 1 map and they lost it anyway, and then they lost to fucking Windigo, they lost to coL, Cloud9 almost defeated them (Cloud9!!!), they lost dust2 to FaZe that has no idea how to play the map. The only reason Ocelote didn't give NBK the major is that mixwell came out and said that somebody didn't really wanna play, by the look of things it was kennyS that supported shox' "project" from the beginning, and Ocelote benched NBK although they looked good in their last matches and at least he could've let NBK play the ECS. What's now? ESL NY will be another event they won't even get to the playoffs (unless FaZe falls apart) at, while NBK is gathering a team that will not win any big title - yes, Astralis is almost immortal, but they will be stronger than that shitty G2 lineup, mark my words. G2 even has no way to improve, unless shox gives up SmithZz and picks kioShiMa and then replaces Ex6TenZ with ScreaM (kio can call, shox will help him, they have kio & bodyy to support and kennyS & ScreaM to attack, a loose style that has more chances to work than Ex6's "style" that now is not even tactical, it's chaotic with people playing like they didn't play with each other at all).

Agreeing to almost everything you said but Kio as an IGL with shox's help. Really do you think that's gonna work out? The biggest problem in French CS scene is they don't have a good leader. Let's say Ex6TenZ is very good with bringing the team together and solves any issues within the team and builds the team chemistry but what about starts. There is no denying of the fact that he can't call his starts don't work now. The same issue was not there when Happy was IGLing the NV line up, we all saw them at cologne 2015 but that somewhat lost now. This is more of a blame game now and the teams failure is imposed on individuals (the only reason Scream had to compromise his career because he wanted things within team should work out and ended up playing in a support role which he never even dreamt of). So IMO there is nothing left in French scene at least for a year to come unless newer players like zywoo come up and do wonders. And as far as kenny is concerned, man this guy deserves to win. He has already done everything and just bought whatever shit they sold him and it feels bad to see him like this at this place.
2018-09-25 09:51
You love saying shit dont you ? Nbk failed because he is shit igl, and mixwell and others didnt want to play anymore with apex. Ask mixwell he doesnt want to play with fr in the future. The team was already dead after one month. And not kennys fault he was the best on this period even if he didnt agree with this roster he is professional.
2018-09-25 11:10
> mixwell and others didnt want to play anymore with apex How have you figured that? Any proof that even mentions apEX? > Ask mixwell he doesnt want to play with fr in the future It's not like he was the only option left. > The team was already dead after one month Yeah a dead team that qualified for ECS lan and was not given any chance to prove itself. Ex6TenZ still has chance to prove himself after all that shit, why did NBK not?

This team won't go far with 3 bots who can't win duel aims. KennyS and Shox carrying this noobs. Just add zywoo and bring back apex and nbk now thats a superteam! Shox might not like nbk but thats his big chance of winning a major not this 3 shits.
2018-09-25 05:12
Tbh - Smithzz - bodyyy + nbk + apex Nbks ogling sucked and we definetly don't want shox to igl again

Lot of comments on swapping buddy , but he's really playing a better cs than smitthz .. I'd rather say either you remove boddy and smitthz and bring in kio and scream or you remove Smithhz and bring in scream. Look at the improvement from boddy
