You're right, but VP crashed and burned out in near-to-last place iirc, they even lost to domestic Finnish teams. I'm not denying that Maikelele had talent, I simply think you're speaking too highly of him.
And NiP didn't achieve "nothing" with allu, they simply didn't win a tournament. Coming 2nd in a major and at the Fragbite Masters, coming 3rd at another major, Gfinity and that ESL tournament in Dubai is far more than NiP achieved with Maikelele (although interestingly I don't think allu was better than Maikelele in 2015 - but I do think he is now). But it's kinda retarded how you'd even mention allu since he's not even relevant to the discussion, I'm guessing it's just trying to trigger me due to my flag or something.
And not once did I say that Maikelele was not previously able to compete at a T1 level - simply that I doubt he can in 2018, which is probably evidenced by the fact that he hasn't performed notably well in any lineup since almost two years ago. But hey, I also said I hope he proves me wrong and comes back stronger, I'd like to see him succeed this year. I just doubt it will happen.
