Elaborating on Kassad's coaching style: He seems like a tough love kind of coach from what I know as he mentioned on HLTV Confirmed what makes a good coach. Also from interviews he said things like "We had one of our famous long talks" which sounded to me like Kassad was giving 100T some facts and telling them exactly what they needed.
Then that'll fail and we'll do the real fix
- Lekr0 +Xizt
Also potential roster changes instead of Bymas for Lekr0.
They could get:
true fix is getting to LAN tournaments, they are a LAN team, just admit it
I swear every time im on instagram i see niko be at some party on his story. jesus christ, hardworking igl
give rain the igl role. rain is never toxic and can give good feedback. he has played in top cs for 4 years now, 4 years! thats a lot of experience. he knows how to utilize himself best. Rain also knows how to work NiKo, as they have been playing together for a while. Rain igl? NiKo = focus on firepower and putting rain in good roles. He also obviously played under karrigan for a while too, longer than NiKo, so he has had experience under a true leader more than NiKo. Keep rain as an entry, too, always first man in. Always! its good for an IGL to be entry because they can after they die have clear overview of the team.
Become a star rifler similar to how he was in 2017 faze. Rain as an IGL could have his strats around Niko and Rain doing the heavy lifting. If NiKo gets off the leash, taken off the IGL role he will be free to destroy and demolish. No one can argue that NiKo, rain and cold have good if not some of the best aim out there, this team is stacked mechanically.
Don't pick up the awp. Very simple. I'd say coldzera can do Broky's roles, as you stated Coldzera isnt an entry, i think cold could do support roles well. Instead, let Cold play his bombsites and be the second or third in as a terrorist. Coldzera should be taken off the secondary calling and instead let that be done by NiKo, too.
Main awper! This team doesnt even have one, let the man show his talent. Broky needs time to adapt. Give him the AWP, your faith and he will not dissapoint. Having Broky building his own AWP playstyle could be good too, just let him be free just like NiKo.
With the rumoured benching of Ethan from EG, you get yourselves a kind of young guy who knows his roles well. Ethan could take Bymas / Olofs roles and play hard support / bitch roles or whatever you want to call it.
To Analyst role.
Good idea to bring him on board. Who is to say you cant have two coaches even, YNk and kassad
Get a 7-map map pool, faze have already done this to an extent. Their permaban, Vertigo they showed promise on! 100% wr, one map against NaVi. 13-3, though!!! equivelant to a 16-4 in mr15 scale. Im waiting for the day some team expects FaZe to ban vertigo just for them to pick it. I'd even suggest having no permaban.
How about bringing back Olof?
ynk is stealing paychecks, FaZe need acoR or maden
best thread for today, but tbh Faze problem on nuke is the rotation u are putting an unexperienced player in the most difficult and powerful position which is ramp, he doesn't know when to rotate, he doesn't know how to create space and to push and when to stay passive because its normal since he is kid but overall his timmings sucks and i don't blame him i blame niko or Ynk for putting him in such difficult position, u had 1 month with so ffs let bymas play inside and move cold to ramp.
Cold wasn't playing Nuke when he was in mibr so when he came to Faze he took the easiest position and now when bymas came u gave him the hardest one even its olof position but u cant put a kid in this position.
+let bymas play B on dd2 and let Broky main awp i saw him on fpl he is insane on A tbh, that why there is some problems on Faze niko take the positions he want then putting broky and rain and bymas in shit ones even if he is star player but in the meantime u are IGL so give freedom to your teammates to work with.
Complete rebuild the roster
Its crazy how well faze really played at the beginning of 2020. It really felt like the team found its identity, and they did show some really good cs. I don't care that Olof wasn't showing his best form, they still played really well as a team. Niko was playing some really amazing cs !
Right now, I see nothing of that. Ofc the change with Bymas effects that, but its like its total chaos sometimes and Nikos calling is really questionable, yet again.....
Its gonna be interesting to see what they do during the break, if they keep Bymas or not. As for now, this team won't achieve anything really in my opinion...the last couple of games have just been a shitshow and I don't really know what they are doing...maybe they desperately need this break to come back, since my feeling is that everyone in the team plays worse and not hitting their shots..
Name checks out. I'm totally agree with the analysis.
If NiKo would get out of igl role and they +alex they would become top1
