23savage and Daxak, two of the most popular carry players in the SEA and CIS regions respectively, are overrated according to HellRaisers’ safe lane player, Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev. In a livestream on Twitch, Cooman while sharing his views about the rating of the two players, stated that he is not a fan of Nikita "Daxak" Kuzmin’s playstyle and that the player is too overpriced though he plays well. In Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon's case, Cooman believed that the Thai player also plays well but does not possess the Wow factor and hence, is overrated. Talking about himself, he stated that he is not the top 1 player but falls in the top 24 category.
Cooman calls T1 carry, 23savage and former NiP carry, Daxak overrated
While talking about the two players, Cooman stated that Team Nigma’s safe lane player, Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi, is the best and always has been the best. While putting forward his opinion, it is evident that the CIS player was taking into account only the safe lane players
“Daxak Top 1? No. Daxak is too overpriced. He plays well, of course, but is too overrated. I really don't like his play style at all. Miracle is the best, has always been the best.
23savage is also overrated for me. He plays well, but not so much that ‘Wow!’
Am I top 1? No, I'm top 24.”
Cooman and Daxak are widely considered as two of the most up and coming carry players in the CIS region. Cooman, who currently plays for HellRaisers, has previously competed with top organizations like Virtus.pro, Team Empire and Gambit Esports. On the other hand, Daxak is known for his time with Gambit Esports, having last played For Ninjas in Pyjamas in April 2020. He competed at the recently concluded EPIC League S3 with former VP offlaner, 9pasha, but the team, known as “Prosti Esli”, has reportedly already disbanded.
23savage is the first player to reach 12K MMR and is a highly valued carry player in the SEA region. He has recently joined T1 where he replaced JaCkky in a surprising move as the latter had helped the team qualify for the ONE Esports Singapore Major.
