In early 2016:
-Apex was good in 2015, but envyus didn't win any big tournaments on the first semester of 2016, everyone on the team was struggling, including apex.
-Rain was new addition to faze. He only started playing good for real when karrigan was add to the roster, in the end of the year.
-Dupreeh was on the top 20 players list for 3 consecutive years, but wasn't in 2016. This was his worse year.
At this time, TACO was getting good results, his play style was working and helping a lot SK. At THIS time he was the best entry fragger in my opinion. And the 3 examples you gave were lost on the game
