Tbh it is very weird cause NiKo is gonna keep IGLing and Astralis can't study them cause NiKo has been IGLing only on 2 maps

no matter what happens Astrails Adjust and shut down whats been thrown at them its no problem.
2018-09-16 23:17
That's a biased statement, considering Astralis are a very tactical team, they can't just adjust and fuck a team that has 3 times the skill they have immediately
2018-09-16 23:18
tactical doesnt mean antistrat heavy. If Astralis has a good day they win. if faze has good day and astralis not they win. if astralis and faze have good day. astralis win.
2018-09-16 23:26
I know it doesn't mean, but it's very hard to fight a team like that, you don't know what they are gonna do at all, you don't know if they have new setups on some maps, new strats, new maps, you can get fucked easier than you think

This goes both ways. NiKo as an inexperienced IGL might just crumble and make stupid calls.
2018-09-17 14:38
Yeah, can't deny that, but you can't deny that Astralis don't know jack shit about new FaZe with NiKo as an IGL rn

They can adjust. That is one of the things they're usually good at. I'd say that if NiKo calls its a lot harder to be innovative on the flow. NiKo had no time to actually prepare strats. He has to use what karrigan prepared or just make up something on the flow. And when you're ingame, thats a tough thing to do.
2018-09-17 14:43
You never know tho, what if they were planning shit lul, not gonna be surprised
2018-09-17 14:45
They can adjust But Niko creates the new adjust :).

He is inexperienced. At least in this level. I recon it is very, VERY different from any experience he might have from before FaZe.
2018-09-18 08:42
He was IGL'ing Mouz

Did i say he hadn't IGL'ed before? No, i said he is inexperienced. Which he is at this level compared to the likes of gla1ve, karrigan, Zeus, Fallen, MSL and Xizt. I do know he used to IGL for mouz but thats a completely different thing compared to being an IGL for faze.
2018-09-19 09:32
he was igl for mouse when gob b got kicked and mouse was still top 10 because of his carry and igling

If only 3 players of FaZe have a good day Astralis may have the best day of their life and still lose.
2018-09-16 23:56
says only lists up the majority of players in a team. give this man a scholarship to fucking harvard he cracked the code.
2018-09-17 00:00
I m just saying that FaZe in a good day is unbeatable.

you definitelly doubt their skill
2018-09-17 14:52
I don't, they're skilled, but saying that a team that doesn't have any pressure, has a new IGL (let's not forget Astralis don't have many maps to study) doesn't have an upper hand? Let's not forget NiKo, GuardiaN and olof/rain together are more skilled than whole Astralis, not even a fan of FaZe. Astralis' success is 95% tactical mind and 5% skill, only people actually skilled on Ast are dupreeh and Magisk, device is above average skill-wise, gla1ve too, and Xp9x skill-wise is just average, most of their success comes from just being tactical.

Faze do have pressure though, they didn't make a superteam to be #5 or #6, and with their "so skilled" top players they are still aiming for number 1, the fact that they had a downfall doesn't mean they changed their agenda
2018-09-17 15:07
> Underdogs and (probably) have nothing to lose since karrigan is (probably) getting kicked > Pressure FaZe aren't good mainly cause karrigan chokes so much and not cause the players "aren't so skilled"

First of all you know nothing about karrigan getting kicked or not, and the fact that they are underdogs is less pressure, true, but they still have it, you can't say they are under no pressure looking at their roster, every one of them is or used to be a top 1 player in his role, therefore they have pressure they are hungry for a major title which they honestly deserve and capable of getting, just like astralis.
2018-09-17 16:53
> First of all you know nothing about karrigan getting kicked or not ...That is why I added "(probably)". > and the fact that they are underdogs is less pressure, true, but they still have it, you can't say they are under no pressure looking at their roster, every one of them is or used to be a top 1 player in his role, therefore they have pressure they are hungry for a major title which they honestly deserve and capable of getting, just like astralis. Okay, fair. I might have been wrong on that part, still, you can't deny Astralis have more pressure in this situation, combine that with FaZe being able to study Astralis on all maps while Astralis only have 2 maps, combine that with the fact that they don't know much about NiKo as an IGL, it looks promising, although, what FaZe need is the players to perform, if that doesn't happen, then it's lost.

I think Astralis can manage to out IGL NiKo by putting him out of his comfort zone. If Astralis can do site-fakes and other strats that will draw NiKo's attention they can attack him
2018-09-16 23:21
Yeah but the thing is you can never expect what he does, cause he has always been known as a brainless chicken and now he is actually doing very good as an IGL which is a role that needs a lot of focus and game sense

Come on. It's not like it should change faze over night, it's not close to a dramatic change. And they didn't even state that he will keep doing it..
2018-09-17 01:08
Ofc I do agree with your statement but it has a big impact, changing an IGLs changes everything, if you watched the game you'd see it was a very different FaZe

Imagine being Draken in that team and having to be all like "damn, flusha, you fuckin' nutty, all lurking with your epic sprays and timely flanks. I would totally hang out with you, both as teammates and real friends." When all he really wants to do is fuck another 19 year old fanboy in his dressing room. Like seriously imagine having to be Draken and not only sit in that chair while krimz flaunts his useless 1.6 knowledge in front of you, the favorable lighting barely concealing his skull tattoo and balding spot, and just sit there, game after game, hour after hour, while he perfects his playstyle. Not only having to tolerate his obnoxious fucking snus but his proud chuckles as everyone on the office tells him he's SO AWARE and DAMN, XIZT IS THIS GOOD AT CALLING? because they're not the ones who have to sit there and listen to his fifteenth fucking 1.6 play reference you didn't even remember before that day. You've been fucking nothing but a healthy diet of blonde gay Fnatic fanboys and muslim friends of Maikelele for your ENTIRE CAREER coming straight out of the boonies in Epsilon. You've never even heard anyone this fucking washed up before, and now you swear you can taste the sweat that's breaking out of his baldspot as he turns his head expecting your high-five, smugly assured that you are enjoying the opportunity to get paid to sit there and play with his "Legendary (for that is what he calls himself)" playstyle, the playstyle he worked so hard for with spray training in the previous months. And then Jumpy calls for another Quick B, and you know you could kill every single person in this room before the Swedistan security could put you down, but you sit there and endure, because you're fucking Draken. You're not going to lose your future Red Reserve career over this. Just bear it. Hide your face and bear it.

I feel like Astralis themselves will be under heavy pressure. FaZe has nothing to lose, karrigan is getting kicked if they don't succeed anyways so they will give it their all. Niko and Olof are looking monstrous, Niko igleading could surprise Astralis, his and karrigan style are completely different.

Will power :D
2018-09-16 23:29
He is just predicting tbh, but if you ask me, I might sound crazy, FaZe has better chance imo, NiKo igling means Astralis can't study a lot (FaZe have only played 2 maps with NiKo as an IGL) and you never know what can happen, FaZe are underdogs heavily in this, not only that it is quarters which has less pressure, meaning choking is eliminated but I doubt it's a problem anyways since karrigan was the main reason they choked.
2018-09-16 23:31
somebody has spread this rumor about niko calling and you all believe it like 10 years old naive girls looking at a candy omg xD Olof said in the interview it's not true at all
2018-09-16 23:34

United States ItsImpact 
FaZe is at a huge advantage here because they can study astralis on every map while astralis can only study FaZe on mirage and dust 2 due to NiKo becoming igl. Also rain, GuardiaN, and Olof seemed to gain their form back so I think it will be incredibly hard to beat FaZe rn
2018-09-16 23:48
I don't think astralis care much about igl, they have own strats and anti-strats
2018-09-16 23:49

 | 
United States ItsImpact 
My point is that the players on faze are regaining form and astralis being a very tactical based team can’t study faze on any other map besides mirage and dust 2.
2018-09-16 23:50
#100
 | 
Indonesia linekerrr 
I mean faze's strats aren't that complicated. I doubt they have good strats in the tactic heavier maps such as nuke, ovp, train. Mirage and d2 are like the 2 most aim-based maps ever. So if astralis bans mirage they'll have the upper hand since niko doesnt have experience in overpass, nuke, train as igl.
2018-09-17 15:03
2018-09-17 15:23
NiKo and olof new best trio
2018-09-16 23:50
I have this feeling too, I just remember how easily FaZe were crushing Astralis before Olof left and it'll probably make me put FaZe as the major winner in pickem
2018-09-16 23:26
In this case: FaZeUP!
2018-09-16 23:29
FaZe will beat Astralis. NiKo is so motivated to win major and with olof back in form it will be a stomping like in Boston(except final biggest choke in history)

jinxed nt . ez for Astralis for sure they are looking dominant while FaZe struggle vs NaVi with 11-5 lead and 2 pistol rounds lost 12-16. they only played vs noobs G2 xD

difference is that against NAVI and BIG it was karrigan calling shit rounds shit strats and shit force buys. NiKo started calling after 0-2 and they got to playoffs.
