Stewie2k Liquid Stewie talks moses addition and TL leadership VideoWatch the Skies for Stewie2K... - Stewie2K CS:GO Stream Highlights
Damn, I feel for mibr. The team, culture, and fan base that I grew to love. Remember how you guys came to be, how hungry and hard you guys worked.
CS is nonstop and only gets harder. Good luck mibr! In an interview with ESPN in , Stewie seemed to find it difficult to describe what exactly he had learned from his time with the Brazilian squad, saying he had become more "versatile.
Stewie barely spoke about C9's changes at the time, but the in-game leader took questions regarding Liquid's own roster shakeup unwaveringly during the Cologne stream.
He was an open book, a fact that became apparent when drilled about his physical reaction to a round that was caught by ESL's player cam.
It was more so us just missing our [grenades]. I don't like losing rounds because of simple mistakes like that I'm trying to keep myself calm," Stewie said, grinning.
No one needs to be reminded that winning means everything to some CSGO players. It's a mentality familiar to Liquid fans in particular, instantly comparable to another famous TL player that helped bring Liquid into the international spotlight during ESL One Cologne Oleksandr " s1mple " Kostyliev's time with Liquid was brief and at times chaotic, but the side would have never reached its first CSGO Major grand final without him.
According to TL manager Steve "jokasteve" Perino, s1mple wouldn't stand for anything less than perfection from his teammates. But former Liquid player Spencer "HiKo" Martin has admitted that interpersonal difficulties made s1mple's days with TL numbered from the start:.
We had so many fights [that] we got into that were just stupid fights if you were on the outside looking in. Years after s1mple and 's Cologne Major, Stewie is exhibiting a similar mentality in the pursuit of perfect play.
The difference is that Stewie has the clout with the TL organization that s1mple may have lacked.
Combined with his unbridled desire to win, Stewie has set out to correct what he believes to be the team's weak points while tackling the challenges that come with leadership in what is now "his" roster.
His responses were carefully measured in the ESL interview, but it was also clear that Liquid's leader was as honest as he felt he could be.
The interview revealed an evolved Stewie, something he's grown in to over the past year and a half. He's transitioned from a player who once allowed himself to be held back by both his and his teammates' performances into a competent leader.
Where he stands above the rest is his awareness of his own mistakes, something that comes complete with the management of ego that separates the few great leaders from the many good ones.
Of course, it's possible that Stewie's time on Liquid ends in a similar way to his time on C9. One too many "simple mistakes" can drive a player so motivated by a desire to win to jump ship to a rival team, too frustrated with the inability of those around them to live up to their perceived potential.
But Stewie has been there and done that, and he's become a veteran leader himself. Despite being susceptible to his own emotional swings over the course of his career, today's Stewie doesn't crack under the weight of his own expectations.
Liquid lost to Evil Geniuses in their following match, sending the team to Cologne's lower bracket. In its first real test after shedding a tenured player and a head coach, Liquid dropped its own Mirage pick TL, a team that historically favors the CT side, failed to grind out even one round win in a poor defensive effort.
The IGL finished Mirage with a 0. A younger version of Stewie would have let that kind of performance bleed into the next map in the series.
This goes doubly so in this case, considering EG's Nuke pick was a map Cloud9 had famously banned for a year after its competitive release reportedly due to Stewie's personal dislike of the map.
Yip grew up with his brother and sister. His parents were often on business trips in China. Yip described his parents as the stereotypical Asian parents who disapproved of video games, wanting him to be a lawyer, doctor, dentist, or something else that was mainstream.
His draw towards video games created a rift between him and his parents. Yip even recalls his mother saying he was going to be a failure since she lacked the understanding of the professional gaming scene.
Her disdain for gaming made Yip feel that his mother had failed him and ultimately drove him out of his own home. At the age of 17, Stewie flew to LA to pursue his own interests in gaming.
Yip stopped playing Counter-Strike 1. He eventually picked up Counter-Strike 1. Yip began playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the summer of after a friend gifted him a copy.
He was inspired by videos of Cloud9 and would play many hours of the day. He played matchmaking for 5 months before making the switch to ESEA.
During this time, Yip was falsely accused of cheating by several players, further motivating him to pursue a professional CS:GO career.
Spontaneously flying to Los Angeles at the age of 17 kicked off the competitive career of a young "Stewie2K. He bided his time and waited for said player to relinquish his spot on the team.
Yip joined Cloud9 on January 11, as an In-Game Leader. He signed the Cloud9 contract a few hours after his 18th birthday.
Esports journalist, Duncan "Thorin" Shields, questioned Yip's addition to the Cloud9 roster as well as Yip's abilities.
Yip played for 2 years with Cloud9 and won several tournaments with the team including ESL Pro League Season 4 , DreamHack Open Denver and iBUYPOWER Masters Yip won his first major with Cloud9 in January at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston SK Gaming.
