glaive’s head is shaped like that to store all the extra processing power. it’s an unfair advantage
gla1ve is a mastermind, wtf are you talking about? It is not his fault if he can kill anyone, AND zeus doesnt
but u still need that kind of player who steps up motivationally when the things are going bad
so let me start gob b glave (zeus) karigan fallen
so can u fuck off?
Well I think its a interesting idea but Glave is just a good fragging IGL, and Zeus a badfragger and maybe decent IGL. I do still think IGL's are crucial for calling, esp mid round calling. But maybe some loose style as Niko/Chrisj seems to do could work to
Dont take an IQ test in Texas.
tldr but i agree with title
Faze has so much more skill than Astralis,but they are nowhere near top1,meanwhile they should be according to you
It not just strats but how the players are working together and executing those strats, it's all about team chemistry.
igl is crucial.
what u want to point is that the actual igl needs to be a good player besides b3eing a strategist, like fallen, glaive, niko.
its obvious but ok.
its not about igl role is useless...its about some players in this role arent so skilled as they should be...also its about team chemistry, good teamplay and putting the igl in position which he can play well...even zeus can be useful
stopped read at igl is useless and lithuania
Astralis players don't have raw skill, everyone of the looks like that because they fit their roles perfectly and have perfect team play, but in other teams they wouldn't have that good stats, maybe device, he has ggod stats in fpl as well, but they wouldn't be top 10 players in different teams
interesting read my friend, reminds me of my own threads :)
For example Zeus, whos known to be probably the best in game leader of all time
"I think every player on their team can call"
If you think saying rush B, rush A or something like that is calling I have bad news for you. As a igl player I can't understand why you posted bullshit arguments. Zeus won a major with gambit (which they didn't have the best firepower) for example and you see many examples in this days why a igl is important in a 5v5 team based game.
Most of the time IGL's start to care about the teammates and the game instead of the frags, which is normal. When he believes the team starts to play in the way he wants he will start to frag more, hybrid igls like g1ave exists.
lol dumbass. gla1ve is a great player, but the reason astralis are as good as they are, is because gla1ve has a smart mind. the smartest to date.
Gla1ve is a damn good igl, calls the right rotations, handles economy well, has set up a good system with the right roles alongside zonic and has discovered a way of dominating a map like no one ever has before, You absolutely need a good igl to be on top, gla1ve being able to frag fantastically is a reason why they are on top yes but he was braindead and you only had zonic astralis would be WAY more shaky
