Are you saying that cold didn't have a huge drop in form when TACO was removed from the team?
Furthermore, SK/Mibr has attended quite a lot of tier2 LANs this year. It isn't really comparable to the rest, so saying that he's #8 doesn't mean jack shit. Look at the opposition they've faced and their results.. then judge the stats.
It's a FACT that cold has a serious dip in performances after TACO was removed, yeah he's been having an increase in form in the past few months, but it's nowhere near his past level quite yet, and his team is struggling hard to find a rhythm.
