Movistar Riders set to bench smooya - Report

The organization is reportedly transitioning to an all-Spanish roster.

Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield is to be benched by Movistar Riders as the organization looks to build an all-Spanish lineup, according to report from Dexerto released on Wednesday.

The move would come less than two weeks after the team decided to remove two players from their active roster, with Kristjan "⁠shokz⁠" Jakobson released by the organization and Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes moved to the bench in late July.

Movistar Riders fell out of the top 30 in May

The three players alleged in the report to be joining the team are David "⁠dav1g⁠" Granado Bermudo, Raúl "⁠DeathZz⁠" Jordán Nieto and Alvaro "⁠SunPayus⁠" Garcia, all hailing from the former Iberian Family roster.

smooya has been by far the best player statistically for Movistar Riders since joining six months ago, posting a 1.25 average rating over the period. Whilst his personal statistics were impressive, the team struggled to break through to the upper echelons of the CS:GO scene, unable to qualify for a top-tier event bar the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown.

With only six days left before the Spanish organization's first outing in the new season begins in ESEA Premier Season 38, Movistar Riders are expected to announce changes soon.

Woops, I replied to the wrong comment. I know everyone is saying FNC, but they won't replace anyone unless someone really doesn't fit. But Brollan and Jackinho are too young for drama, Krimz is too professional, ALEX is too nice, so it's only Mezii I don't know about, but Mezii is equally skilled as Smooya and Smooya is actually known for being a bad teammate (which he might no longer be, but he was for a long time and he's known for it). Perhaps either Krimz or Jackinho would perform badly, but I doubt it. By the time that happens Smooya would be picked up by someone else. It's not going to be FNC. The obvious options are: 1. Endpoint 2. Quitting and going over to Valorant 3. MSL's new team. 4. Gorillaz with Flusha and co.

i think he has improved some bit in his OVERALL mentality, altho he most likely still has his moments (like quitting the game when his teammate pulled off a 1v3 in riders), but his past behaviour is still prob at him

this, I think overall he's become quite a decent person. he's learned quite a lot from his past mistakes. even said it himself, he said his 18yo self was an idiot. I think he's ready for tier 1, I think his skill was never a question anyway !

his skill was never questioned. It was his ability to act like a total twat that got him removed from rosters. a reputation like that is hard to overturn, GL to him - fnatic would be a solid team for him to try and salvage his career with.

Exactly, HLTV users just act like they know everything that is going on. He can be a little toxic yes but who isn't? Last time I checked, the best player in the world was one of the most toxic players at one point.

Thats a weird thing to say after he spent forever not playing T1. I think you mean that you want him to only play T1 whilst he just takes what he can get. Endpoint is better than his previous teams.

Obviously Endpoint is slightly better but it’s still at best a top 30 team. I’d like to see him in t1 but I know I don’t have any say in it lmao But I truly believe he’ll be looking for a t1 team now, it’s not unrealistic

Why couldnt he join a top30 team like endpoint and make them T1? Thats most likely his only way there because of his reputation. Teams like mouse or faze would surely not pick him up. Maybe if they got desperate I dont know.
2021-08-12 12:10
2 replies
but like I said, he's mostly restored his reputation, that was hig goal playing in T2/T3 he's done it now so why would he go for an unlikely shot at T1 with endpoint when he could just already get into a top 15 team?? Not necessarily Mouz or Faze immediately but surely there is a better home for him than Endpoint
2021-08-12 14:29
I agree that is probably his only way, but not due to his reputation but rather the current CSGO market: nobody is hiring, fucking flusha and sergej are playing in a mix, coldzera is teamless, a lot of young talents are stuck in academy teams if they are starting to out-grow those enviroments either by age or by skills, yet nobody picks em up, the market is dry as fuck and current players have to be happy with what they can get because if you stay out of the loop for more than 1 month your probabilities of getting hired are abysmal.

Wow, your Spanish source is really good, thanks. If we are to believe mopoz, smooya is always complaining midround and bitching to his teammates... basically bringing morale down. TBH, I can easily associate that with what I saw of him on the Confirmed podcast. Sad... he's a decent player, but probably needs to quiet down.

if you watch the whole thing he definitely doesn't sound excited, he posts incredible stats (inflated because tier 11 spanish scene) and is on a team that (apparently) wasn't working as hard as he was to get to tier 1. I think he deserves a shot on a good roster again, one like col, see if his toxicity remains when his teammates work just as hard as he does.

yeah i think its a really nice option for Movistar Riders, you have a lot of players in the scene leaving or trading to valorant because of the lack of support of orgs, so im happy with this decision, but u cant assume they will player better only because of the language, they have a new igl (now is deathz right?) and a lot of players, so we need to wait and see.

2021-08-12 01:07
The position of smooya will be foe Sunpayus. I saw sunpayus in Caronte and IF and had good stats. Sausol maybe better than sunpayus? I remember that in Mad Lions, he was benched/changed always in one map (only plays 1 or 2 maps, depending, during the picks).

Makes sense - all he did was imply that his teammates don't even play the game unless they have to on HLTV confirmed. Can't believe he'd publicly state that about his team even if it is the truth, all that while simultaneously saying he is "growing" as a person on the same podcast. Not sure if this is an issue at all but I remember thinking it was odd when he said it. Smooya is a great player and he is trying to rehabilitate, even with the help of Richard Lewis chiming in, but I think he will have a hard time fitting in anywhere he goes, I hope he does.

Movistar about to be irrelevant again, he was the only reason why they emerged into relevancy at all recently. It's a great news for for him if he can get himself another top team that his skills actually deserve but a rather sad news if he spends much time on bench as it's better to be employed than be unemployed at all. GL Owen!

For me, Smooya doesn't have enough filter. I remember him talking during a Beyond the Summit. Probably, he can be toxic (like all pro players), but I feel it is more a tendancy to talk too much.

Deathz and sunpayus are good options but not davig.. Bring over sausol instead and the lineup would be looking really good.

I hope he gets a good team, like fnatic or CoL. He's a good player after all. Yes, he might be a bit toxic sometimes, but who isn't?

There is a point, where you must think, that there is a problem with the player what we can’t see. I mean, maybe his personality isn’t the best, when he unable to stick with a team.

Fnatic? Where is Fnatic? Is a very good organization, ok. The team s`cks like MR, or worst. They are in ESL Pro League beacuse they are partner team, not for their merits... It will be a high surprise if they can win one match in the ESL Pro League group stage.

2021-08-12 14:34
