Twistzz, the super scout

jks’ Katowice dream very nearly didn’t happen.

We could be sitting here talking about a very different grand final, where G2 came up against a completely different team, and still somehow lose 0-3.

Twistzz spoke to HLTV and told the world that he had to convince RobbaN and karrigan that jks was the right player to pick over Bubzkji — the analyst — and ‘another Danish player’, presumed to be NaToSaphiX.

Not presumed because it makes any sense, just because it allows us to segue into the NaToSaphiX drama. The TL;DR is that Mauisnake made a joke about NaTo being on FaZe and the Dane was, unsurprisingly, a little upset.

But like... if you don’t want to read about you being a permanent stand-in who is mediocre on Twitter, don’t be a permanent mediocre stand-in or don’t go on Twitter. It sucks, but you can’t stop people from thinking you’re bad.

Anyway, it’s particularly weird that karrigan didn’t realize how good jks was given how well he was able to utilise the Aussie’s talents. Mind you, he’s not alone.

A lot of people, some of us included, were starting to lose faith in him after the Complexity debacle - but it turns out that team really was cursed beyond belief.

Twistzz, in the meantime, can feel very smug about his own scouting abilities. Game recognise game.
