IGLing is based around making strats, mid round calls and hyping your players up i'd say.
Keep the team together in stressed situation, call strats, midround calls, have the overview about the econemy of your and the other team, vetos, etc
delete all the games you have and delete steam+origin ....etc and e never talk about gaming again pls.ty
IGL is more than just strats:
Its about being a leader, teamplayer, strat caller and helping others belive when they don´t.
NiP is 2-13 on nuke (im talking like 2014) and Xizt (exept calling strats):
Okey boys, everyone think its over, but lets show em why we are the most legendary team, lets make the haters cry. i dont give a fuck if they think its over, its only over when WE WIN THIS SHIT!!! (and everyone clearly showed that they got hyped, no joke)
NiP wins 16-14 and after that: NiP magic
Make sure you stay calm, stressed out IGL is the worst for every team.
How a round usually goes is:
Start of the round call (default for example) -> Shit happens (pick your way or the enemy teams way, or you get the control you want) -> Midround call -> round win / lose
at the start you should contantly be focussing on gatering as much info from your teammates as possible. You should encourage your team to give as much usefull info as you can.
Make sure all of your mates are on the same page with the comms.
Call what you see, what you are doing and what you are going to do. Those 3 things are the only calls your other 4 players need to make.
Hope you got something usefull out of this.
ever tried to igling in a pug?? do it and see how it affects to your stats ;)
All about IQ, analyzing the round while playing it isn't easy
Calling best strat based on money and utility of your team and the enemey team
Reading the opponents well
IGL role is fake like support or lurker. It was invented by players like Fifflaren, SmithZz and Styko to pretend like they contribute something.
agree, igl is a fake role
look at niko for example... Faze would legit be so much better if they weren't overthinking every decision and trying to play "tactical"
thats the thing with CSGO these days, all teams try to be astralis/tactical... faze should be loose and fragging, like G2 (shox is a shit igl)
why can't teams just accept this wtf men)))
It's about calling strats yes, it is also a get out of jail free card when you bottom fragged.
IGL is a role only worth taking if you have competent teammates.
watch the old esl 2014 videos where you can hear the teams comms
imo best igl was cArn, dude he could fake your fake with fake hahha :D
Watch Steel vids on being igl
They have to trust you fully, throughout the whole game. Also youhave to pay attention at all times, even little things like a kevlar buy can change the next round so yeah, hard af
