One of the best CS:GO players from NA, Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip was quick to respond to Noah “Nifty” Francis’ remarks on Liquid being "overrated", as he straight up tweeted out “Lol sounds like you’re speaking out of your ass about us.” giving it back to the 22-year-old AWPer without masking his emotions.
While giving an interview to Rivalry, Nifty said that “Liquid is overrated” explaining his answer by mentioning how the team plays great when they feel like it and how that is really disappointing for their fans, while also stating that the Liquid lineup “struggle with their own problems outside of the team”, and it is tough for them to perform cohesively with a roster like that all the time because “You really have to leave egos at the door.”
To this, Stewie who is known to indulge in a lot of banter tweeted that “Lol sounds like you’re speaking out of your ass about us.” He also mentioned that Liquid not wanting to be the best doesn’t make any sense, while making it crystal clear that they understand the meaning of being teammates “aka leaving egos out the door.”
Throwing a bit of shade in the end Stewie said “Look yourself in the mirror,” pointing out to Nifty that he better work on himself and improve instead of pointing fingers at others.
Team Liquid recently qualified for BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Finals and will be seen in action soon at IEM Katowice 2020. On the other hand, Team Envy has made it to the NA Closed Qualifier for Rio Major 2020.
It is a long shot for the two teams to actually go up against each other anytime soon, but at least Stewie hasn’t disappointed anyone by not backing off from a straight-up confrontation.
