IGL role
 |

what is this about just saying what to do in rounds? I think a IGL should be a skilled one too. Any tips about how to IGL, how to speak to your teammates when they are loosing their shit out.

Zeus is the worst team leader ever, he always trashes his mates and his calls are insanely basic, don't try to learn from Zeus

0/8 4 major finalist, made gambit won major. Hes trashes his mates cuz sometimes its only way to make them calm and focus on game.
2019-03-19 11:28

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having listened to it.

IGLing is based around making strats, mid round calls and hyping your players up i'd say.

this guy said everything
2019-03-19 14:10
I think there is even more to it, like finding new smokes, watch demos and watch for mistakes or missplays the other teams do, find counterplays etc. Don't know didn't play in any realy competetiv team and never as an IGL but I'd like to do it at some point. It's such an interessting role.

I do it sorta competitively, for my teams level that is :P It's hella fun when it works, but it's likely to at some point get multiple people against you, but that's also kinda fun, as you learn from it so it doesn't happen again. My team broke up and reunited multiple times (I always happily IGL) and love being in control of the game and U'm arrogant so I also like being the leader hehe :P. It can be stressfull if taken too seriously xD
2019-03-19 15:58
Yeah, Im quite a shy guy tho, but don't know how I'd act as an IGL maybe a lot different. I made a short pause from cs and started playing again yesterday, so I'm motivated to play again and get better, maybe find some guys to play together, but for now I'm happy grinding my way up the ranks on my own, need to start from DMG again. Played with some friends in 99dmg league etc. and always was that Entry and Support guy who picked up the AWP sometimes, it was fun but never had an propper igl etc.

Meanwhile my team is still gold nova :P Though if you want to try IGL'ing to see if it fits you, you're welcome to (temporarily) try IGL'ing in our team. If you're Flemish/speak Dutch ofcourse :P Win-Win as you get to see if IGL fits you and we get to learn from a more experienced player, or I'm just desperate :P Worth trying anyway
2019-03-19 17:26
Haha I'm german in disguise, so thank you for the invite. I have a smurf on mg1 or 2 i think, i can just play as entry or whatever when you need someone. If you want of course. But some tipps are always nice to give ;)

IGL is more than just strats: Its about being a leader, teamplayer, strat caller and helping others belive when they don´t. For example: 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
2019-03-19 11:30
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.

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.
2019-03-19 11:47
+1111111111 although I think even lurker is more real role than fake ass igl

It's not fake but still not an excuse to be bad
2019-03-19 14:02
Looking at Astralis with gla1ve or ENCE with aleksib, i have to disagree Looking ar faZe with NiKO (lmao) or NaVi with Zeus (even tho he did a good job at gambit) I have to agree.
2019-03-19 15:50
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)))
2019-03-19 11:48
s1mple go kill, is best tactict men)))

no igl could be 200 iq if you dont know what your gonna do .. how can the other team know ???
2019-03-19 14:00
+200 men))) wtf)))))
2019-03-19 16:07
It's about calling strats yes, it is also a get out of jail free card when you bottom fragged.
2019-03-19 11:48
IGL is a role only worth taking if you have competent teammates.
2019-03-19 13:47
watch the old esl 2014 videos where you can hear the teams comms
2019-03-19 14:00
imo best igl was cArn, dude he could fake your fake with fake hahha :D
2019-03-19 15:42
Watch Steel vids on being igl
2019-03-19 15:43
Watch XIZT 500 iq 2019
2019-03-19 15:55
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
