Is it time to talk about smooya again?

But really. Is it? We asked you a while ago on twitter, and some of you seemed to agree.

So, we took a stroll over to his stats page. And guess what we found. That's right, a leftover pizza and some milk. Wait no, that's our fridge. What's on his page is even more surprising.

In the last three months, the screeching AWPer from INGERLAND has managed to get himself a overall rating of 1.25. One point twenty-five. "So what, he's smurfing in lower tier CS" you might say. And that's a valid point.

But here's the thing. Even though it's no guarantee, it's still impressive. Back in 2017, before his BIG breakthrough, he also posted similar figures against similar teams, with a rating of 1.23 over the entire year.

The following year, when he played top tier Counter-Strike, he boasted a 1.17 rating throughout the year. That's the year him and his team were runner-ups at Cologne, losing to a strong electronic and s1mple duo.

So call us Nostradamus, because we're making a prediction.

As much as people dislike him, and as bad as his image is - even his teammates have a hard time with him - we think smooya might be back in a top-contending team before the end of the year.

Not only that, but he's going to perform. He did it before, he can do it again.
