cxzi to step in for Gen.G in ESL Pro League

The 20-year-old has already been practicing with the squad and will fill in for Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele against 100 Thieves.

Danny "⁠cxzi⁠" Strzelczyk is set to play for Gen.G in their match against 100 Thieves in ESL Pro League, taking the place of daps, who had announced his plan to step down from the team earlier in September.

cxzi gained notoriety in North America through his performance in FPL and Rank S in 2019, although he also drew the ire of Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan and other notable players due to a lack of experience in a team environment and his attitude towards the game.

cxzi will link up with autimatic and company against 100 Thieves

The 20-year-old spent the following months working on those very issues as he competed on a handful of teams in ESEA MDL and ESEA Advanced to build his skillset, putting up above-average numbers. He also managed a 1.24 rating at Fragadelphia 13, helping Thunder Logic to a fourth-place finish in the offline tournament near the end of 2019.

Gen.G will hope for cxzi's addition to have an immediate impact as the team currently reside near the bottom of the ESL Pro League Season 12 North America standings with a 1-2 record, with 100 Thieves presenting a considerable challenge as both teams look to earn their second victory.

Gen.G will field the following roster in their match against the Australian side:

United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta
United States Kenneth "⁠koosta⁠" Suen
United States Sam "⁠s0m⁠" Oh
Indonesia Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand
United States Danny "⁠cxzi⁠" Strzelczyk

Australia Chris "⁠Elmapuddy⁠" Tebbit (coach)

a kid who got bullied in FPL for being shit. Has improved significantly tho.
2020-09-17 21:01
Actually his skills always been like this, but his attitude has shifted a lot. I have hopes for him to make it into a bigger org in a year or two, but I rather have seen gen.g get an igl

He got kicked from fpl 4 different times and made it back every time. I think he is good as IGL and micromanaging people.
2020-09-17 23:51
He's never been an IGL in his life. Mediocre MDL player.

2020-09-17 21:42
his English is pretty good
2020-09-17 21:51
It isn't since daps said that they had to teach him call outs on all maps
2020-09-17 22:12
Like he hasnt had time to learn the comms already?
2020-09-18 08:16
and what has that got to do with his level of english?
2020-09-18 08:20
damn, good luck for casters trying to say his name mid hectic rounds
2020-09-17 20:55
thinking about it, they will just probably say something like 'chi'
2020-09-17 20:55
people call him cx
2020-09-17 20:57
as in Cee-X (separate spelling)?
2020-09-17 20:58
Yes it's weird
2020-09-17 20:59
well, better than my suggestion.. he kinda looks douchy, do you have any infos on that?
2020-09-17 21:00
2020-09-17 21:30
got it, but i do not trust steel's evaluation hehee.. idk why i asked this, tho thanks anyway
2020-09-17 21:51
I thought they would have said "Sick-Zee" but C-X works just as well
2020-09-17 22:37
Why not call him sexy?
2020-09-17 23:32
Because that would be a lie

2020-09-17 20:55
although he also drew the ire of Joshua "⁠steel⁠" Nissan and other notable players due to a lack of experience in a team environment and his attitude towards the game. dust2.us/News/3700-fpl-recap-pwnalone-cl.. so he's like ryx. a real asset to a team.
2020-09-17 20:57
steel and other pros have since said that he worked really hard to fix those issues, and he is overall a better player now.
2020-09-17 20:58
oh. so he's like steel. a real asset to a team. unlike ryx. ryx is not an asset to any team, ever.
2020-09-17 20:59
Wtf haahahahaa - bot + bot who cant even igl
2020-09-17 20:56
Hello Sherlock, BnTeT is IGL:ing.
2020-09-17 21:02
I know dude, but I still dont understand this move
2020-09-17 21:08
Why not? Daps is garbage. BnTeT is good and can IGL with good English as well.
2020-09-17 21:10

2-0d 100 bots so good start plus he’s worked under all the good igls in Na except Stan and stewie so not that far. He also called in clg he a very good player
2020-09-18 00:09
Well, thats just 1 game. But sure i guess. But idk why they wouldnt just let BnTeT IGL tbh.
2020-09-18 00:10
20 years old looks like 35

He sucks.
2020-09-18 01:02
He did pretty well for his first pro match
2020-09-18 02:08
He's not a pro level player. I know people who have played with him. He has about 6 total MDL matches. They probably picked him up because he won some money in FPL back in the summer.

This makes me kinda sad actually. They lose a low fragger, but brilliant CS mind, someone who have made the NA scene better just by helping his fellow teammates, for such a long time, and they replace him with a high frag Pugger who barely know the depth and dynamics of the game. If Gen.G would gimme 3 days and $100, I would most likely find 10 better NA MDL players that would make more sense!
2020-09-17 21:20
a brillant cs mind that couldnt make gen.g win against 100t easily while just letting him out and take anyone made them win
