That's so fucking bs lmao.
There are literally so many talents in the top end of the NA MDL, but they're all not quite there yet or just stuck on teams that won't qualify for the MDL.
Eunited is the perfect example of a team consisting of these sort of players, but these guys actually made it and it was due to being on the same squad. Not every talent has that.
Zellsis is a great example, infinite another one, grim, motm another one. A bunch of players that really has some great potential, but everyone is not on a team consisting of 5 Pro league level players like eunited were.
Stewie wasn't anything special when he played officials, he was good, had great impact in the MDL, but what made C9 pick him up wasn't only because he had some decent games in the MDL, they've stated so many times that his FPL performances was the main reason, they needed a skilled guy. Not everyone enjoys playing pugs, everyone isn't as good in pugs as they're in officials.
If we're going to talk who looked like the better player, Stewie in his last season of MDL or for example infinite this season of MDL? Infinite without a doubt. But that doesn't mean infinite will turn out to be as good as Stewie, but as I said there are many individuals in the top end of the NA MDL, but they're far to spread out across like 5 teams. Kaboose and floppy are 2 more examples.
''An actual support who can help Steel with igling''.
Literally the worst fucking thing I've read here all day. Steel will run the ship as he wants it to be ran, sure if he wants a second opinion, but that's not enough to suffer in terms of firepower. They want the guy because he won't fuck up when Steel's calling stuff, he won't make poor decisions and has some decent experience. Now, if NA truly wants to get some new firepower up there, they shouldn't be picking up EU players to do some kind of bullshit ''support'' role. Many pros have stated, there isn't any role called ''support''. Sure you can do the dirty work, but that's not enough for you to simply call yourself a support and not frag as many seems to think. Sure, you can be the support, but in the way you wrote it it seemed like you're fine with Krystal basically not fragging.
Now, this might work out, and I'm not against the move in terms of Ghost becoming a better team until I've seen a few games. But in terms of brining NA talent up it's not the best move. You saying there's no talent basically just shows you're not watching the games and the teams playing the games, because if you would, you wouldn't make that statement.
