0/8 MSL>>>stanislaw in fragging and IGLing
2021-04-13 01:23
2 replies
both bad i'd give MSL the upper hand in fragging because in his recent career he looked alright with the awp but stanislaw is the better leader IMO, all you hear from MSL are excuses and then repeating the same mistakes again
2021-04-13 08:25
Lmao msl needs an awp to frag and hes a bad awper so... If he is in the team, the team is automatically bad
2021-04-13 10:39
Looking forward to seeing the beautiful face of SPUNJ again!

Got nothing against MSL but why have him as guest? What's the point of asking a player who was benched in a tier3 team about his opinion on Astralis falling short or NAVI, EG, and Vitality making changes.

maybe because he has lots of experience and is a big figure in the danish/EU CS scene?

i dont think he has fans in EU outside of a few north ultras in denmark

2021-04-13 10:40
I'd like to see him just play and not IGL for once. The whole North project had been doomed from the start.

Calling people 'plastic' cause they dont watch a 2h show with an irrelevant guest who they dont care about (rightfully so). And you're not even MSLul fan? You are the one who seems desperate to me...

I just respect him for what he had done for the scene and has many interesting things to say, while you are a little sweaty nerd who must be super unhappy in his life when all he can do is just hating on people who have done things you can maybe dream of. I bet you were in on the c9 hate every day, you nerd, haha

you are making it easy for me to dismiss you as an idiot. -says: "Desperate, so you have to make up stuff" -then says: "while you are a little sweaty nerd who must be super unhappy in his life" -also says: "I bet you were in on the c9 hate every day, you nerd, haha". hypocrite

HLTV Confirmed Drinking Game: 1 drink: everytime Chad refers to "back in the day" when he was pro. 1 drink for every 15 seconds of Chad ranting. 1 drink everytime Prof smiles at something in twitch chat. 1 drink everytime someones connection drops. 1 drink everytime Striker says he has nothing more to add to a topic. 5 drinks if Lucas fucks up the "roll the recent news music" 1 drink everytime Chad says we'll come back to a topic and then doesn't. 10 drinks if he comes back to the topic. 1 drink everytime Chad says "we'll put a pin in that" 15 drinks if Chad gets to the end without a rant. Feel free to add more
