This, This 100 percent. When Elec first joined Zeus made him play some supportive roles to give more freedom to EDWARD. However Elec was a pure star player/fragger in F3, and doesn't even know what to do with supportive utility/nades, he's basically a guy thats there to click heads, which is why S1mple pushed for him to join the team, for firepower, m not support. Ideally the two older guys on the squad should run supportive roles for S1mple Elec and Flamie who are all very exceptional fraggers, but Zeus thought otherwise and put Elec on supportive roles where he was bad and inconsistent, and of course Edward with more freedom is still bad firepower wise, so only S1mple was carrying the team. It was after a few months in 2018, when according to their own interview S1mple pressured Zeus to switch up Elec roles and he is being misused. This was the start of the rift that now exists between S1mple and Zeus, but it meant the team could actually win as Elec was playing his preferred role. However Zeus and Edward still really did not take all those supportive roles, instead they push some on Flamie, deviate from what they plan pre-match and Flame gets stuck with shit during the match, Its no surprise the poorness and inconsistency presents in Electronic in early 2018 are not present in Flamie. Flamie of course was unhappy with this and grew unhappy with the team and eventually tried to leave. NaVi and Zeus stopped that movement and Zeus tried to make it up to Flamie outside of game by buying him shit. This is a highly probable timeline deduced based on confirmed events.
Now the problem is CS is played in the server. And when you have players playing roles they do not have the strengths for (mainly Edward), and the IGL not only allows this but facilitates it to the detriment of team performance, I'm sorry thats not a good IGL. Zeus constantly whines about how difficult the younger members of the team are to deal with. Maybe if he structured roles within the team according to ability like an actual IGL does, there would be no issue. Its clear at this point he's happy to just go half-cocked into every event and see how it turns out. Very pathetic state of affairs in NaVi from the top down. Kane, Zeus, and Edward, the oldest and should be wisest members of the team, are the ones ruining it for S1mple, Elec, and Flamie. Its absolutely non surprise the team is in such a shambles, and I would not blame any of their younger players for leaving and going to an actual team, unless NaVi decide to replace those three older guys right after the major. Just imagine Zeus saying they plan to go to even fewer events going forward, not prepping properly for the major and hoping for top 8, etc. He is absolutely not the right leader for this team. For that squad to measure up to top teams consistently, Zeus and Edward need to be replaced with young, fresh, hungry CIS talent just like With Electronic. S1mple wanted to play with him for this reason. He is good. In modern CS you need 5 solid players to make consistent improvement vs the top, not 2 insane players and 2 bots.
