He is definitely a top 10 sentinel player. The only players that can be argued to be ahead of him would be dapr, fns, zellsis, Ayrin, aproto, XXiF, Oderus and steel. Some of those guys already are a stretch and in my eyes he's 4th behind dapr, fns and Zellsis. Maybe if you want to use the argument that he hasn't played in a while and stretch even more, you could say he's 11th by including mitch and BabyJ or something but, again, that's really stretching it.

Nah VS in a tier of their own

Kinda like the guy above was saying, thwifo is a top 5 sentinel player in NA and also they already have Curry as their IGL so that isn't a concern. This is a great move for T1 but the only bad thing is that they are supposedly putting Ska on Jett and moving Auti to sova which seems like a braindead move to me.

posted 2 days ago

He was pretty inconsistent and Autimatic was amazing on jett so, again, it doesn't make sense. Also it's way too late. I didn't like when they took Ska off of Jett in the first place but, at this point, why not just keep Autimatic on jett?

posted 2 days ago

Maybe top 10 jett player in NA a year ago but definitely not top 10 player. Either way Autimatic was so damn good on jett and raze that it makes no sense why they would switch him off of the main duelist role when it was 1 of the only good things about their last roster.

Well that's fucking terrible then... Why take Auti off of duelists? I'm a lot less excited for this T1 team now...

Source?

posted 2 days ago

Why leave once they start getting the best pieces. Autimatic is on the verge of being a top 10 duelist and could grow even more, Curry is great in pretty much every role and can only improve as an IGL, Spyder is returning after being inactive with his wrist injury and now they are getting thwifo who is one of the best sentinel players in NA. Then they can choose to bring back Ska as their 5th, who is solid and has a shit ton of experience in tac fps games or pick someone else up. Everything is starting to match up with this roster and this would be the worst time for them to leave.

They will be stronger with luckeRRR as their main duelist compared to kAdavraa? Support players can't help that much when they don't have a star player to support. kAda is one of the best duelists in EU and replacing him with Zik and Seider and moving luckeRRR back to jett(where he was super inconsistent on NiP) isn't going to make them stronger whatsoever.

G2 failed more than just to make Reykjavik. After they got eliminated by Heretics in First Strike(and won the Red Bull tournament thing), G2 did jack shit. They failed to make even main events of challengers after previously winning everything so don't act like it was such a sudden change. Carlos is not that dumb.

Yeah I saw he has some nice stats and same with lyNxi so maybe they will be considered or some Fin or Dane or something that speaks Swedish fluently because I genuinely believe that, even if the Guild guys can speak English, that it is so much better for a team to communicate in their first language and that switching it up for 1 player would ruin the team. Also I haven't watched any of supmah/lyNxi so I didn't want to say to add them because I don't know how good they really are, I just know they put up some good numbers. Also idk if either of them are IGLs or if anyone on Guild would be a good IGL so that would be a big question with the move as well.

posted 6 days ago

These are the best available Swedish players for each role(For Bonkar it's IGL) so they shouldn't replace anyone unless they can either find a Swedish speaking player who is better or a better smoke main than Bonkar. Unless FPX drop their roster for a Chinese roster and Zyppan is available, the only roster move they should consider is moving Bonkar to coach and picking up a good, Swedish, controller main

Why would they make changes? You can't win everything and there's no good reason to make changes after every loss unless some insane players like cNed or nAts are available. Mixwell had 1 down tournament and now people are saying to drop him, as this community always does, Koldamenta is a great IGL and keloqz is a very young, great player who just needs to be more consistent. Making any roster changes would be a huge mistake but luckily G2 isn't ran by the people on vlr.

posted 1 week ago

I don't think there was anything wrong with their strats, I just think that the reason why their attacking side is weaker is because of the IGLing but their executes look good.

This dude switches over from cs, already is a good sova, killjoy and viper and is looking like the 3rd best player on Liquid already. Even if Liquid don't qualify to Champions this year, they are looking deadly for next year with Nivera adjusting to the game and Jamppi growing as an IGL. Also they just beat G2 even with Soulcas underperforming so this team when everyone is clicking is scary. Also Jamppi is looking really fucking good as well.

posted 1 week ago

While their reads aren't great, the only thing that makes it obvious is that you can see both teams. Also Liquid has enough skill to get away with a lackluster IGL situation at least for now and I'm sure the calling will only get better over time.

Does each country have completely different languages or are some similar and others not. Like PRX has 2 Indonesians, 2 Singaporeans and 1 Malaysian while FS and X10 are exclusively Thai and Team Secret is exclusively Filipino. So is the Thai and Filipino language that much different or did the teams just sign the teams cause they though they were the best team?

posted 1 week ago

There's a good 7 teams that have a chance to win imo but it'll probably come down to obviously the winner of FS and NTH and whoever wins between the loser of that game and the winner of the likely matchup of Nuturn vs PRX. Of course Damwon, GE or F4Q could also make it to the lower final but I really doubt it.

The whole Mike situation is fucked up but tbf Chet is a good coach(not as good as Mike tho). You say NRG and TSM performed poorly under him but NRG was a top 8 team with Chet coaching for a while(until Daps left) and TSM made it to Challengers Playoffs and almost beat Envy. Also in CS he coached NRG/EG to being a top team for a while and then coached 100T who were pretty good under him as well. Basically, he's a pretty good coach but paying him what he's probably getting paid while not even being in contact with Mike makes 0 sense.

posted 1 week ago
  1. NRG flopped after daps left, don't credit that to Chet although losing Chet probably added on a bit
  2. TSM also lost to Noble after Chet joined as well as them having their best run.
    Not saying Chet is a bad coach or anything but why not sign Mike when he got the team to Berlin and helped them(while not physically being there) make the Grand Finals at Berlin. Man made them the 2nd best team in the world and Envy decided they just weren't going to sign him and were going to move on. The only decent explanation they can give is that they want a coach who can actually be there at Champions but why not help him with the Visa shit instead of downgrading to Chet. It's fucked up and doesn't make sense and I guess they'd rather give Chet big money instead of even negotiating with Mike but Chet doesn't deserve any hate and he's still a good coach.
posted 1 week ago

Hey guys lets drop the coach who got us all the way to Berlin and helped the team get to the Grand Finals in Berlin(despite not being there) for someone who has only been mildly successful in Valorant and had a few good stretches in CS. Like wtf man why. I was really starting to like Envy since Mike is one of the Plat Chat guys and all and because of the talent on that team but now I can't root for them if they really dropped Mike for fucking Chet. No hate to Chet or anything but they completely did Mike wrong.

I mean you say every team needs an awper but did LG have success because Dre was awping or was it actually hindering their team? I didn't watch the whole series or anything but when I was watching it really felt like Dre wasn't even there most of the time and that his awp didn't have that much of a positive effect for how much it costs.

posted 1 week ago

Eh I just said top 5 cause Asuna and TenZ are obviously 1 and 2 and then you have Dre, ShoT_UP. Actually nvm he's top 3 cause he's better than ShoT_UP and a lot of the other top duelists in NA aren't the best on Reyna like Victor and corey or mostly just play jett like Wardell, PureR(who now plays skye too), autimatic and yay is solid on Reyna too I guess.

posted 1 week ago

No one said he's bad, they're just saying to keep him on reyna where he is a top 5 player on that agent in NA instead of putting him on jett and forcing him to awp when he's a godly rifler. Similar situation to Asuna when they had him on jett despite him being possibly the best Reyna in the world.

Moving autimatic off of jett/raze would be the perfect way to ruin their new roster. Also if Spyder comes back why would they drop brax but keep ska? Imo they should drop both and get a good sova either by buying out someone like Derrek or by adding a FA like pr0phie but if they keep 1, it's gonna be brax.

Also Elmapuddy seems to be someone who would focus on simple yet effective strats and getting the fundamentals down. In his videos, he never goes over any crazy complex strats but he does focus a lot on utility timing, positioning and utility usage(like he made a video about Sentinels and I remember he talked for a bit about how good a viper molly for ct entrance to A heaven on split was which is a very simple but effecitve thing). I'm just glad that he's gonna coach again but sad that he'll either stop making videos or rarely make videos.

Idk why they got rid of mCe but elmapuddy is fucking goated as well. His videos are so good and I hope he can have some more success in Valorant

Great move and also George Geddes is top fucking notch. Dude reports everything like weeks before they actually happen so once again props to George. Temperature is the perfect upgrade over MkaeL who can play sentinels, sova, controllers and is one of the best support players out there. Great pickup who doesn't negatively impact the brand and who can slot right in for MkaeL. Gen.G is looking pretty scary for LCQ. Don't sleep on them

Ok so if 100T is moving on from steel permanently, maybe the plan with seven is just to develop him and integrate him into the team for a few months and then have him replace b0i on the starting roster. If they have b0i taking nitr0's role and nitr0 moving to jett, maybe if b0i doesn't work out, they will have seven start on jett and have nitr0 move back on controllers and move b0i back to the bench or drop him. If this is their plan, then Asuna could stick to Reyna and Raze and let nitr0/seven play jett and once seven is fully integrated, nitr0 can move back to controller.

posted 3 weeks ago

You all need to understand that we are in September of 2021, not 2020. Sentinels aren't a necessity anymore. b0i has been working with 100T for months now and it shouldn't be hard to integrate him into the team. He was decent on Andbox and could've gotten better or worse since then but we do know that he is a good controller and that nitr0 is a great IGL and probably should play more jett. Worst case scenario, b0i/nitr0 will have to learn how to play killjoy and/or cypher and Asuna has to stay on jett. There's still a shit ton of experience and talent on this team so we'll just have to see how they do in LCQ.

didn't ask

posted 3 weeks ago

Why wouldn't they use the same Breeze comp that they did vs Acend but just with b0i on Viper? Moving Asuna off of the Reyna wouldn't make sense at all. Keep HiKo on sova, Asuna on Reyna, nitr0 on jett and ethan on skye and just swap b0i for steel on viper.

posted 3 weeks ago

Well they might have b0i/nitr0/HiKo play sentinel on some maps or something but I honestly would rather see nitr0 on jett more and b0i could just take over his role for most maps. Like on split for instance, HiKo could play viper, b0i could play omen or astra, ethan would be on skye and then nitr0 could play jett with Asuna on reyna or raze. With b0i playing smokes and nitr0 playing more jett, Asuna could thrive more now if they keep him on reyna and raze but he could still play jett if they need him to on certain maps.

Yeah idk man maybe hoodie org should've just bought out nAts to replace toxic boomer steel.

posted 3 weeks ago

Ok so I get that all of you love to shit talk "hoodie org" and all and that all of the 100T fans love to instantly jump to conclusions and say a move is bad anytime a decent player is benched or whatever but just stop and think for a second. Steel grinds the game nonstop everyday and when he's done playing, he presumably works behind the scenes on new strats or whatever with the coach. It's highly likely that Steel just got burnt out from this and that 100T didn't want to bench him. So saying that it was a bad move and all that when we don't know the details is just dumb. b0i has been working with the team for months on end, nitr0 is a legendary IGL and seven has been dominating tier 2/3 tournaments and is only 16. With sentinels largely falling out of the meta(or at least not being crucial anymore), it's not a huge issue that 100T don't have a dedicated sentinel main anymore. If anything, playing with b0i is more helpful because it could allow nitr0 to flex onto more agents and play more jett. Please stop saying that steel got dropped for being toxic or that 100T made a bad move without knowing the full story and just wait until LCQ or don't.

No steel was benched not fns...

posted 3 weeks ago

dapr had 1 bad tournament tf you mean there's no space for him? Actual braindead take. The other 2 lack in firepower but make up for it with their IGLing. fns's lurks and calling are the reason(alongside Yay popping tf off) that they made the finals so there's definitely room for him too. As for steel, he's similar to fns but nitr0 was a great IGL in cs so why not use him as IGL and increase firepower. Steel will be signed by another top tier org like NRG and he will help whatever team he goes to tremendously.

posted 3 weeks ago

nitr0 was the IGL for some of the best NA CS teams in history(Liquid when they made finals at whatever major vs SK Gaming and Liquid during their grand slam 1 year streak). Don't understand why everyone is freaking out about the IGL situation since it's so obvious but whatever. I'm more interested in seeing if nitr0 will start playing more jett or if b0i is just going to play sentinels. I hope it's map dependent but I'm not concerned by this move much at all because I have complete faith that nitr0 is a great IGL and would be a great jett if 100T want to go in that direction.

posted 4 weeks ago

So you're saying that he would join V1 for much less money just because they are in LCQ? That's a very bad long term decision especially since NRG will probably offer him a shit ton of money and he can turn that team into something really special with the talent they have.
