This roster; Golden, Lekr0, Flusha, Krimz, JW were top 1 team in the world on Mirage, top 3 team on Inferno, top 5 team on Train, top 10 team on Overpass and decent (not good) on Nuke, Cache and Dust2.
This rost; Xizt, Twist, Brollan, Krimz, JW is top 3 in Sweden on Mirage, they can sometimes win on Overpass and the rest of the maps is unplayable for them.
And if you read the beginning of my article you can see that the trouble for Fnatic started before the major. We were just blinded by the big ORG they are and the experience the team has to fail to predict the unevitable results of WESG and Katowice.
In iBP the won 3 maps out of 6 even though they only met teams that had new rosters. They won a close match on Train against CoL (a map CoL usually don't play), they won a close game against C9 on Mirage, and they won on overtime on Mirage against Liquid.
The 3 other maps were 6-16 on Cache, 9-16 on Dust2 and 7-16 on Overpass.
This isn't just a few bad results or some downtime for the team, this is now about a year of bad results (PLG was a fluke against bad teams) where the only good result was in IEM Chicago (first lan for this roster).
Have you ever heard of an IGL hangover?
