hot take on tenZ
penny |
I personally cheer for sentinels against any team then v1, and I don't think tenZ is their best player. I believe SicK is better than him due to consistency, strength, and ability under pressure. I feel like most pro players in NA are scared of tenZ, allowing him to play more confidently as they are giving him too much respect. The pro players who didn't give him respect and would play their game over him are now his teammates (dapr, sick, shahzam, sinatraa,zombs) thus allowing him to play aggro confidently. Nobody stands up against him except for the c9 team, but the team isn't good enough to beat sen yet.

just to write, often when he is losing head on fights at the beggining of a match his performace heavily drops off, but it hasn't in masters as everyone is scared of him.

I believe you will be laughed at for this but I do partially agree with your take. I understand that this game is not just Raw AIM but also involves your Mentality. Now I can't say that TenZ is bad in any way but he is painted on like a GOD by the people so much that it seems as if no one's even close to him, I do believe that he is not the best but potrayed as the best.

SicK has to be at least a top3 all-around player in NA. I don't think there's another player with his consistency (top1 in that department for sure). He can play support, duelist, sentinel and all that in a high level.

TenZ needs a team to work and be able to deploy his playstyle.

i disagree with that. i think tenZ needs people who are scared of him to deploy his playstyle. back on c9 they were losing to bad teams since they came out hungry to beat tenZ. they weren't like pros now where they all wish they were him. he feeds off of people who are scared.
2021-05-03 08:17
Yeah, I agree that SicK is at least top 3, but I don't agree with your statement about TenZ. It's not that they're scared of him, it's that he believes he can kill anyone who stands right in front of him. That's a great mentality. Yes, sometimes other players outfrag him or dominate him in individual duels, but I doubt most top-tier players go into a match and say "we're gonna get dominated by TenZ". They all have confidence, they all can aim, nobody is invincible.

no but they often sound so scared of him. "he is this, he is that" nobody except for those players dont give a fck about what someone says and they play the game mentally strong. everone else look at flashiness and stats and judge off of that
2021-05-03 13:31
That's fair enough.
i just think the "fear" factor doesn't sound like something present in proplay, seems almost being scary is a plus, and in esports there are a lot of good and dominant players, but never "feared" to the point the rivals can't deal with it. But it's just my opinion.

but there is lots of proof. so many pro players like android and jcstani sound like literal bitches to him, "i wish i could do this like him" "nobody is even close to him". like youre a fucking pro u can compete against him hes not fucking god.

bot in 2 games
very impressive

mostly agreed actually. SicKs flexibility is almost unmatched around the world right now and has got to be a huge reason why they've stayed consistent as other teams have come and gone.

TenZ | Kai001
I wouldn't say others Pro players are scared of him , but they know heads up 1v1 , they going to loose most of the time. , he is very fast.. % and stats dont lie guy. and performance is base on overal not just fraging out in some game .. it's the impact that a player can bring to the team and winning rounds...
2021-05-03 13:57
penny | kindereggmodel
dont talk about impact with hiim and sick in the same conversation. sick is so much more impactful and a constant, sinatraa aswell
2021-05-03 16:20
TenZ | Kai001
No one in the right mind would go into a match and say lets give this guy respect and let him kill us so he looks good.. ,
2021-05-03 14:07
penny | kindereggmodel
no thats not what i said. i said that they play scared of him. i think people will outaim him a lot in matches, his aim doesnt seem very good in matches.
2021-05-03 16:19
TenZ | Kai001
his aim doesn't seem very good in matches... ??? you are defenately a troll or a iron bracket player
2021-05-03 18:21
I understand you, as a TenZ fanboy, are upset, but you dont have to comment 40 effing times. I think TenZ is a great player, but Sick has been more consistent and impactful than almost anybody else. Raw aim isn't everything

SicK literally has a headshot % in pro play, you can look that up on this site ffs
2021-05-04 11:50
drone | ceeSidd
a higher headshot % **
2021-05-04 11:50
SicK | ImXero
Sick is amazing let's keep that streight but don't go talking about headshot % when Tenz uses OP and Sick does not
2021-05-04 17:18
drone | ceeSidd
??? OP is not figured into HS statistics, come on now. Same for shotguns, those weapons and the OP are excluded from HS stats.

I think SEN has a case for 4 top 10 players NA, Tenz and Sick obviously, Shahz is the IGL of the best team in NA plus he gets his, and Dapr is always clutching and playing well; Dapr probably highest IQ player NA. Zombs is great but a lot of support players could fill his role well.
2021-05-04 02:50
penny | kindereggmodel
nah zombs is insane. even him he doesnt frag well he does everything possible for the team. he places all utility for them, he goes light armor so they can get full, anything possible to set up his teammates. he plays meta agents so his team doesnt have to change theirs.
2021-05-04 08:49
SicK is just better than tenz no doubt about it. I would even say Shaz is better. Fragging like that as an IGL. Much more of a valuable player.

penny | kindereggmodel
thank god more people like u exist.
2021-05-04 08:47
wait for the lan matches u will see a whole different version of Tenz
2021-05-04 09:21
penny | kindereggmodel
exacto, he bouta get shit on an carried by sick. cant wait for sinatraa to return, hes a lan demon
2021-05-04 13:55
A whole different version? Is he gonna choke and play like complete ass like he did on C9 CSGO? idk what you mean
2021-05-05 05:02
but he is the cuttest looking Pro. BY FAR. Only one that come to any close is Twistzz but he's palying a different game
2021-05-04 09:50
penny | kindereggmodel
?????????????????????????????????????????? cute??????? ok then
2021-05-04 13:55
he's like the anime guy but in real life
2021-05-04 16:45
drone | ceeSidd
SicK > TenZ, agreed
2021-05-04 11:49
2021-05-04 14:57

2021-05-04 15:23
