Okay guys tell me, what problem does FaZe have tactically that they need an IGL? They literally have 4 people who're entrying, clutching, supporting and IGLing while fragging insanely. They're better tactically than G2,Na'vi and mouz too. So where is the problem? I don't see mouz have as good and mobile CT-side setups as FaZe. Very good rotations on CT side. FaZe has Fnatic level of CT-side. Yeah on T-side they're lacking a bit but it is cuz of their normal defaults which requires one player to go down. Though NiKo's lurking and clutches help FaZe a lot. Anyways I think they shouldn't add IGL but a youngstar. I think they don't need a botfragger like olof so a young fragger from French,etc scene would do. People who think otherwise are dumb and just want to ruin a team which is finally good and probably top 3. tldr: FaZe should add a fragger not IGL and who think otherwise are living 1 year behind others, when botren was added to IGL.

they never had a proven igl since karrigan right now I feel like with olof gone and bymas in they can improve with fresh blood fragging wise
2020-05-25 10:25
FaZe>mouz rn and both fragging wise and tactics/call wise

if they kick chrisj for a god fragger they can keep up with faze
2020-05-25 10:29
not tactics wise. FaZe has such diverse playbook and have you see their rotations. On mirage they've godlike rotations, no one has as good calls.

Faze not event thinking about idea to get new IGL, this is just random hltv threads about this. Niko clearly said he is IGL, and this not change unless Niko leave Faze.
2020-05-25 10:29
This is correct decision. I'm just saying how wrong hltv kids are on FaZe.
2020-05-25 10:30
They are not tactically good, nor better than G2 or Na Vi in that sense, that is why they choked against G2 in RtR even though G2 were playing really bad, because their strength relies on having individual stepping up and carrying (which they can because they have huge stars), but whenever that doesn’t happen at all or when the other team have their stars stepping up too, they always lose because of tactics
2020-05-25 10:29
wtf choking=/=being bad tactically and if it does, G2 fans should stfu. We know their team's choking tendency.
2020-05-25 10:31
I know, it is just that when they can’t basically run and gun everyone in the other team, they don’t really have deep strats to counter their enemies, so they haven’t anything and they lose badly
2020-05-25 11:39
You're living in which year? They're very coordinated team now. They take map control if they lose. They have really good 5v4 conversion which isn't expected from running gunning team. They look for openings. They've atleast 5-6 types of smokewalls on nuke. Their flashwork is great especially from NiKo.
2020-05-25 14:57
Listen m8, just because they do elemental stuff, which every team does, doesn’t mean they have great strats. Of course they are going to prepare their maps and know smoke and flashes, defaults and map control, but they have not an intrincate strat for games where they are having problems, and if you rewatch the VODs, you will realize that when their couple of tacs don’t work out, they are defenseless.
2020-05-25 16:21
kek wtf??? I've seen so many people analyze FaZe this year. lol they are tactically pretty strong and let me tell you even Astralis and other teams take fight. You can't win cs without taking fights. Also how are you being G2 fan know intricate strats lol when all nexa does is mix up calls and call strats lmao? It's only you who can't see FaZe and how good they are. Sorry I can't show you the truth. I've watched VODs and I've seen people analyze their VODs. They're defenseless only when they whiff lol
2020-05-25 18:11
Okey man, first of all I haven’t said anything of G2 because we are talking Faze, and never said anything about G2 strats. Second, give me concrete examples because I must have missed all these you say. For example, yesterday in hltvs confirmed show, they talked about, and everyone there, analysts all better than me, said exactly the same, that Faze lacks strat depth. Today, in Dh intermatches the analysts said exactly the same, that Faze haven’t had this complex strats because NiKo was never an IGL till some months ago. So tell me, you are the new best analyst of cs and I have never heard about you or u are another Indian twat with big ego?
2020-05-26 00:30
Lmao today FaZe was playing with new boy.
2020-05-26 09:57
That is not important xd, when a stand in comes, he usually replaces the old guys position. If he is not an igl, the team strats remain the same.
2020-05-26 11:30
lol what a joke you're. It isn't so easy to replace someone. He has to get in that style. Olof had pretty important role anyways. I would give you an example but in recent memory every change to team has been of IGL lol. You can see how most of the teams turned as a pug team when online cs started and slowly took time to adjust tactically. A small change like LAN-online can do so but in your opinion player change can't.
2020-05-26 13:58
Look at North when they brought in jumpy, or look at vitality when they added misutaaa. They just fulfill the role the team lacked, and so will Bymas because HE IS JUST A STAND IN (yet, it is not known what will happen with Olof in case he comes back), but again, anything of what you said right here doesn’t tell me anything, so stop writing meaningless words and elaborate a good argument if you want to discuss a topic xd. No, don’t compare Lan-online cs changes with temporal roster changes, because they are not the same.

None of the IGL are capable to lead the team with 3 egos and 2 youngsters,so NiKo being IGL is 1 right decision
2020-05-26 14:05
yeah they lost because they lost all aim duels not about fucking tactics
2020-05-25 10:34
lol he doesn't know nexa is pretty bad IGL. maleK is carrying nexa.

they did get a young fragger just not from france,
2020-05-25 10:36
seems good
2020-05-25 10:42
a lot of work load on NiKo's shoulders. He carries, igls, clutch everything. They have to give free space to NiKo so he can do GODLY frags
2020-05-25 16:31
he is still godly fragging. People say cold and NiKo are IGLs while they also get half of the FaZe's kills lmao
2020-05-26 13:59
he is fragging good but we know what free NiKo capable of so im not saying we see NiKo's full potential.
2020-05-26 14:22
man he is pretty consistent. I don't we will see much more from him. There is a limit. He is easily the best rifler itw and by far man.

how u can losing with such a roster then no igl no win
2020-05-25 16:31
well FaZe took a break and didn't have a lucky fluke run as Na'vi otherwise they would've had a trophy too. They also have choking problems.

electronic had less than 1.0 rating only s1mple performed
2020-05-26 14:32
lmao electronic had more adr than s0mple at two of the losing series. s1mple had 3rd best adr in 1 losing series so don't fool us.

2020-05-25 16:32
they choked sometimes. Nearly beat Na'vi at Katowice. Kinda choked against Astralis. That choke mentality is bad.

they've had that for years now, it isn't gonna go away tbh, especially now that they have younger players. They just don't lose close games all the time by being unlucky bruh.
2020-05-26 16:18
they should get an awper with more impact in my opinion. and maybe dont lose every anti-force they play would be nice
2020-05-25 16:33
for anti forces, they should aim lower and also take long range duels where deagle/tec9 is kinda ineffective.

2020-05-26 14:03
Niko is now going to fully take the role of IGL, this is why they picked a young talented firepower in Bymas, so that Niko can mold him to whatever player they need and still have potential to top frag
2020-05-26 13:56
lol I don't think so. FaZe gonna be pretty good. They've veterans who understand rotations and they have coach who can form tactics. NiKo won't have hard time fragging and IGLing.
2020-05-26 16:07
Because that is the only way you will be consistent. Playing how Faze is playing right now will get you the odd win, but nothing more. That style works when your players perform, but what happens when those individuals stop performing? You have nothing to fall back on.
2020-05-26 14:10
FaZe are very much changed. Last two matches have been puggy but it's cuz of new addition. "That style works when your players perform, but what happens when those individuals stop performing?"- lol if Astralis individuals stop hitting shots, they're also gonna relegate to tier 2.
