is not they aren't needed, but they were getting preticted.
but yes, i like those changing, hope SK will follow the lead
Lions with threat are so good. Random play based on skills will give results in short-term only.
Without an IGL the team can either make or break. If you look at teams like Sk now they are not doing very well because Robban as the IGL has not be doing very consistent job at calling but if you look at teams like Na`vi who have made a smooth transition in IGL (from Zeus to Starix) and they still are very strong why? because some players have the calling capability but if SK kicks Robban for instance i don't think GeT_RiGhT or face or anyother player in the remaining roster of SK can call as good as Robban did. As for Xizt as cArn puts it "Xizt has a potential to call good strategy and lead a team" well carn as an IGL was right i suppose! But seriously WinFakt is doing an awesome job at the moment so is fnaticRC
Yeah thats true but i seriously think that depends upon the teams and player to player....If player is calm even if loosing than he can be igl ... Situation is in game if team loosing rounds like 5-0 in train as ct than,thing happend is player get panic and get wont be able to play and but in that sense we need a player who is calm and will make proper calls at that time and will help them in the game...
Like GomeZ said that it is hard for the long-term IGLS to predict teams who have new IGL (fnatic and winfakt) in their first tournament because they don't know what they should do, what kind of anti-strat he should call and so on, with the same IGL they are just basically sitting and waiting to get killed.
Winfakt and Fnatic rock because noone knows what to expect from them. Lots of first time rosters won tournaments, previous Lemondogs, Fnatic IEM Europe, Fnatic Guangzhou and Dreamhack winter 2011, SK with Delpan, Navi with Starix igl. Other teams didnt know what to expect from them, those team were unpredictable and motivated also. New start, something fresh, its a new mindset in players heads.
Well some time ago I would say that's stupid, but I actually agree, not 100% thought.
For example... the teams you mentioned are experienced and bee in alot of LAN events, but now imagine for example Anexis, Xapso or even Lemondogs without igl? Even thought Lemondogs are experienced.
In some parts I agree with you. You can mix easy things with some easy tactics and moves and it works well. Sad you can't find 4 quite good players in germany which are not fucking flamers or noobs. =D
robban really sucks, ok？
sk has 4 best players, so a good IGL is needed.
hm no, youre basically basing this on one tournament.
Fnatic is all luck. They will get fount out in the grand final and many tournaments after this one.
The only reason they are doing well right now is because they have a new lineup with new unpredictable playstyle. Look at what happened after IEM 2011 Europe (new lineup, wins first tournament, then the big void).
I've no doubt NaVi' will win the tournament from the lower bracket. They are simply better than fnatic in every facet of the game.
Sweden & Denmark WRONG
i think good ingame leader is needed..for example - lions(lemondogs) without threat = shit :)..
