Consistency works both ways - one day he could be AWPing like Smithsz, one day he could be AWPing as good as JW (or better if JW is off-form). Put another way, if allu is rock-solid consistant (he's not), then some days he'd play better than maikelele, some days worse. Personally, I'd rather have that, but not base the team around him, if that makes sense. Don't give him "the freedom of the map", make sure he's playing a specific spot in accordance with the other players, who could support him. Chances are, you'll know before the game what kind of day he's having, so could adjust accordingly.

I've never really noted their rifle skills, guess they're about even (not terrible, but not great either)?
I did in the early days, maybe it's the fire rate? Anyway, the only thing you need to do to change your mind & improve your game - practise headshots. Go and do a TON of deathmatch, using only the AK (or, as I prefer, the Deagle), focussing on headshots only. There are specialist headshot-only maps & servers, but normal deathmatch will work just as well if you're disciplined.

Allu (23) and Maikelele (22) are a year apart. Consistency works both ways without a doubt, but if you've watched enough matches from the two you'll also understand Allu doesn't put his team in poor situations more times than not. Maikelele also has a attitude issue where as Allu is very enjoyable to play with.

Look at Gamers2, he's becoming a issue on this team as well.

You have to give a awp the freedom, that's literally what they're good for. The second you start using a awp in stationary positions, the more quickly the awp becomes useless.

I guess that's true, I mean all the best awpers have the freedom. The ones you don't think of in that category don't (allu, Smithz, fox maybe, mou maybe, Liquid adreN).

I meant young in the context of career, rather than raw age. If you think that neither will get better, then I don't think either are good enough for NiP. Allu might not mess up as much as maikelele, but he also is rarely an impact player. I guess the "meta" has moved away from the AWP like that since the nerf, but it's coming back. It's harsh that fnatic hold onto 2 of the world's best awpers, that's just greedy tongue.gif

Sigh, I guess all we can do is accept any changes as they come. Nothing we can do, and *****ing about it won't change things. Can't imagine the shox fans were impressed when he moved to Titan, but people have got no choice but to get over it.
As long as the CS is good, who cares!?! biggrin.gif

As Bloodhound is coming to a close, I have to say... I'm very thankful that Valve has these operations.  When I first started playing (Vanguard era?)  I loved the missions because it felt like I was accomplishing something in game, but then I hit a point where I actually had to play competitive matches in order to move further in the operation.  This forced me to start playing competitive, and I found out that I really enjoyed it.  This operation has done a very similar thing.  Before the Bloodhound update my map pool was Inferno, Mirage, and Cache.  Obviously playing three maps can burn you out on a game really quick, but this operation again forced me to play other maps, and I found out that I really enjoy all of the active duty maps.  Now I play all main competitive maps (maps used in tournaments) besides Dust Eleventy-Seven.

That's what I disagree with though, Allu is a impact player. He's just not doing frag video plays. You can even take a look at Allu's event history: http://www.hltv.org/?pageid=247&playerid=695 Their careers have been roughly the same amount of time. Allu and Maikelele have both been playing for many years now, and both played 1.6 semi-professionally. Neither are young in the context of their CS careers.

You know who isn't a impact player on NiP? Friberg. Friberg hasn't been relevant for roughly a full year now.

EDIT: Here's Maikelele http://www.hltv.org/?pageid=246&playerid=1045 He's beyond inconsistent.

Smithz/Mou/Adren aren't full time awpers. They're hybrid and only pick up a awp when needed. Olof is the same way, Olof is a primary rifler and only picks up a awp when needed. That however doesn't make his role as a awper.

Yes, although this seems to be much bigger than XGames. This will be more on the scale of when CGS was hosted on DirectTV.
