I don't think one is obvious at all and there a few contenders. Niko and Zywoo who normally feature in the tpp3 have fallen off a cliff in terms of performance. Some amazing performance yet huge consistency issues. C9 will be held back by some really bad 'must win' performances (imperial, Big and Astalis matches come to mind). I would like to see electronic feature here. To take on IGL and still 'come to fuck' has been a breath of fresh air. He's put up some amazing numbers whilst guiding the ship back to winning ways, only just losing the IEM Cologne bo5.

I meant with that, that it is obvious who the best player of the season was which is s1mple. Normally they would probably talk about the best player but since its that clear there is no point in that so they decided to make a talk about the 2nd best player. Its really hard to actually say who the 2nd to 5th best player have been this year since they are quite inconsistent as you said

I actually think that nexa for aleksib (G2) was the worst roster move of the season. After that move, G2 couldn't achieve anything. From Major finalists to early exits. Liq Shox was not a good move but it's not like it completely flopped and people were shocked (not a pun), people didn't have any high expectation for liquid in the first place.
2022-07-24 11:43

What you have to take into account though is that at the time it seemed +Aleksib was a great option, as Nexa didn't want to IGL for G2 anymore there was no greater IGL to get. Just because the team coukldn't agree on a philosophy of how to play the game I wouldn't say it was a bad roster move, considering that at the time it looked good. Where as +Shox never made any sense, and even Vitality adding the danes made less sense than G2 additions.

I mean they are the worst rosters of the season, but with the state of NA cs I doubt any better roster could've been put together
2022-07-24 14:13
shox was a strategic move to bring some of that EU cs knowledge into their team. Yea, it didnt work out but the idea was great, idk why people miss to understand that. They pretty much got that out from Yekindar in the end instead of Shox. And nobody expected big trophies out of Liquid because of this move but people did expect them from G2. Plus I think it wasn't like nexa didn't want to IGL, G2 just didn't allow him to IGL as he wanted it so he wanted to leave.
2022-07-26 22:12
bro G2 didn't achieve anything with nexa either

Given the schedule I assume you'll already go over time without these but here goes - Re Bo5: can SPUNJ try to explain to a pleb like me what casting a BO5 is like on a physical & mental level - Re best/worst categories For Striker: best interview quotes and is Electronic's "We just came with the certainty that we can fuck" the best one - even as a probable mistranslation (in his own head)? For Prof/Pimp: best moments on the analysis desk/green room For Spunj: best(/worst) IGL performances/games Also Prof, can you become my croatian euro coin guy please ^_^

Couple minutes into the cast and I already hear the mouz hate coming from all angles. Classic. :D Having been around longer than all 4 of them and having success most of the time, ofc with times with less of it, but thats basically for all teams, especially for the mentioned/liked teams/orgs by them in FaZe, Liquid or astralis who has been shit for years inbetween themselves. /e: Throwing huge amount of money seems to be the deciding factor for getting called a "big" organisation. Last I checked, its not the amount of money spend, its how money gets spend. F.e. check PSG in football. :)

It's pathetic how much of a fanboy striker is of simple, it was cringe to watch honestly 'he's just to good' when asked about the MVP simple baits every round, saves 90% of the time so he can keep his k/d up. It's pretty fucking sad.
