‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast
Today seized revealed that Natus Vincere is planning to change rosters as the results haven’t been there to justify keeping the same five. This could have cataclysmic effects on the CIS teams as there are a lot of possible combinations and players you can go for. Here is a run down of types of players:
Superstar level players: s1mple
Superstar level players with caveats: flamie, GuardiaN
Potential star level players: HObbit, electronic
Superstar/star level player with little resources needed: AdreN
Supportive AWPer: Deadfox
Third star options: styko, zero, mou, Worldedit
Reliable supportive riflers: Seized, Edward, Markeloff, bond1k, Dosia
Leaders: ANGE1, Zeus, Blad3, starix
20 players in total. From the list gathered here I think you could make two instant championship contending teams and one very good team. The potential combinations is endless and I don’t know enough about interpersonal relations and politics to know who can go where. Off the cuff, I think the two really crazy mixes that could be used are: s1mple-seized-zeus-hobbit-adren or GuardiaN-electronic-blad3-bond1k-Edward. The simplest solution, though, could be something like ANGE1-s1mple-edward-seized-flamie and then put s1mple on the AWP.
I think the hardest player to slot in among all of the players here is flamie as he was the most consistent under starix, so I’d rather he and starix go together.
