After a good run with Lunatix/Empyre recently finishing 2nd place in CGM finals, the team seems to be parting ways basically due to a difference in opinions/philosophies on how CS should be played. No hard feelings and really enjoyed my time playing in this lineup. Had heaps of fun playing both the current and previous seasons with Lunatix and felt I have learned a lot from my experience playing at a higher level of CS and improved as a player because of this. Will be first playing out the ESEA and AEM season with the lads but open to trial during this time as long as it doesn't clash with any officials.
Improve as an individual and gain further experience in a high level team environment
To play in CGP/MDL along with Zen League etc.
Compete and win at the highest level in Australia and potentially internationally.
Always free Sunday - Thursday and usually free Friday/Saturday as well.
Currently can practice/scrim from around 1PM - 1AM AEDT though that may change after Christmas to something like 4PM - 12AM AEDT. Would be ideal to have a team that is keen to practice around 5 hours + a night from around 6PM - 11PM. Basically keen to play in a committed/dedicated team.
What I bring to a team:
I'm eager to learn and improve my skills as an individual as well as my chemistry and ability to play effectively in a team environment. I am always on time and very rarely ever have anything that affects my commitment/availability to practice with the team. I rate myself as a solid 2nd entry/2nd AWPer as well as a clutch player and don't crack under pressure. I am also happy to spend hours in the server working over issues and problems within the team.
Can play every role decently except IGL however in saying that I prefer to 2nd Entry/Rifle or Awp/Secondary Awp as that's where I feel I am best at. Can also Support/Lurk as well and can Entry if needed though I don't enjoy or feel that I am best suited to entrying. Happy to help generate and work through ideas with IGL but not suited to IGLing.
Always on time to practice/officials.
Eager to learn and Improve
Committed and dedicated to the team
Committed to individual practice (DM, Bots, Retake, Pugs etc)
Good all around ability playing the majority of roles and weapons.
Adaptable player and can play under a structured or lose play style depending on IGL.
Typically a positive attitude, don't tilt when underperforming
Can struggle with accepting criticism in the heat of the moment, though internally I take it in and adapt to the criticism, externally I may argue and disagree to a point.
Can be over aggressive with play style in some scenarios.
Over communicate in some situations or mumble/talk too fast occasionally which along with a mint kiwi accent can sometimes be hard to understand.
Can struggle with dropping points of contention (i.e conflicting viewpoints on how players should have reacted in a round).
Watching demos/own POVs which is something I understand will improve my ability as a player significantly and thus am trying to watch more of these.
I tend to change my settings when I have an extended period of bad games leading to further inconsistency, trying to stick with a consistent setup.

You know that scene at the end of 8 mile where the hero and protagonist Rabbit beats the notorious Papa Dock because he's listed all his own faults? Well that's what Kid has done here. This is a rare talent for a young person, and for New Zealanders in general. With more experience and constructive teammates around him Kid will blossom from a lowly hood rat into an esport celebrity, best of luck.
