ALEX isn't worth $600k
 | 
Sri Lanka khorkalba 
$600k is way too much for someone who basically quit his team because of exhaustion after only playing tier 1 CS for a couple of years. Even if I agree with the sentiment that the CS calendar is too busy with too much travel involved, I would expect the veterans to succumb to burnout first - not someone who is still relatively young and inexperienced. I also don't think he's proven himself enough yet as an IGL to have such a high price tag. How much of Vitality's success was really down to him, and how much was down to ZywOo having the most insane debut year in CS:GO history? It certainly didn't seem like he was getting the most out of the other players on the lineup.

IGL has another value than normal players if they are good. Cuz every team needs one and it depends a lot of success on him.

I agree, but maybe VITA don't really want to sell him, just want to see if there is any interest. Maybe they are hoping that somewhat soon he will want to compete for VITA again and if so maybe they will drop misutaa.
2020-06-30 22:45
You might be true + 6 players team is trending right now so maybe vitality is looking for it too

Keep that in mind that Esport is still growing and players like Alex will cost more than players like Niko or coldzera 1/2 years ago

Coldzera cost FaZe one million so that is false actually.

I mean that players like Alex would cost 200k at max 2 years ago and in 2 years they will cost like 2 mil Players will cost more and more

Bad baiter got payed 1M for being worse than ALEX, being a top 20 player isn't worth 1M LUL I'd take jks instead of cold
2020-07-02 23:44
whats the story behind him not wanting to travel a lot? he had some related diseases? doesnt want to sacrifice him all? want to play for fun and just loot ez money?

From what I heard he had some stomach problems and difficulty sleeping due to all the travel, but the main issue was the impact on his social life. If he's that concerned about his social life, he's probably not cut out to be a professional gamer.
2020-06-30 23:08
sounds like poor excuses, he probably came here to only grab ez money, he never wanted to be a world champion it seems
2020-06-30 23:18
Why doesnt ALEX just start playing with vitality again since he still is in vitality but benched atm? Its not like there is less traveling with FAZE
2020-06-30 22:59

I think the issue is that Vitality actually look pretty good with apEX as IGL. Maybe even slightly better than with ALEX. This actually raises even more questions about ALEX as an IGL.
2020-06-30 23:03
nah its just that zywoo is in insane form and the others arent doing bad. Not about tactics I think

People judge IGLs too much on gimmicky tactics in CS. By that logic, Ex6tenZ and Blad3 have to be two of the best ever IGLs... I'm more interested in things like teamplay and how well players feed off of each other. If a team has one star player and the rest all have negative ratings, that to me suggests a bad IGL who doesn't know how to create a good balance on the server. Now it could be that players like shox just improved on their own. Or it could be that they feel more comfortable and therefore perform better under apEX than ALEX.

I don't deny that he was an improvement on NBK as IGL. Even NBK's biggest fanboys say that he shouldn't do that role. He's terrible at it. But I still think that ZywOo is overwhelmingly the main reason for Vitality's success. When you have a player who is that amazing, you're going to win some lesser tournaments eventually - even if the IGLing isn't great and 3/5 players have negative ratings.

i don't think that would be the case nowdays considering that the level of play rose up significantly and also, they wouldn't have been as consistent if it was just because ZyWoo is a god Look at s1mple before he joined NaVi he carried liquid in two majors but outside that he didn't do shit

I think you're forgetting how inconsistent they were... DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 (first event after NBK left) - 2nd place StarSeries & i-League CS:GO Season 8 - 7th-8th place Intel Extreme Masters XIV - Beijing - 3rd-4th place ESL Pro League Season 10 - Europe - 9th-10th place EPICENTER 2019 - 1st place BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 - 7th-9th place Intel Extreme Masters XIV - World Championship - 9th-12th place These results are absolutely the hallmark of the team that relies too much on one star player. Yes their ranking on HLTV was good, but they only won one notable event, and you have to consider that Liquid dropped off pretty hard during this period, which opened the door for weaker teams like Vitality and Fnatic to challenge for the #2 spot.

yeah I would that was because shox wasn't integrated well yet, if you look before NBK they were pretty consistent

it's difficult to judge the period where both NBK and ALEX were calling, and they actually had a string of bad results when ALEX took over fully (shortly before NBK was kicked).
2020-07-02 18:44
If this is true it is def. not first time someone is asking ridiculous money for the player. Imagine just how rusty he will be after so long break, there is no guarantee he will even become that good again and still, he wasn't some mastermind nor good fragger. And u can't know if he won't be exhausted after 6 months again. Just, NO.... This guy is worth some money, not much tho, we haven't seen him playing for months now and in 2020 there are LOT of players esp. in top teams who are on verge of replacing cause stakes were raised and they are simply behind the current skill level.
2020-06-30 23:18
shox was 400k so def alex not worth that much.
2020-06-30 23:20
who
2020-06-30 23:20
I guess you are right. Alex is now 2 Million worth. Clans pay a lot more when they buy a Major team.

I think he is. Hes a good IGL and actually high impact fragger as well. Kinda like gla1ve. Also he rarely makes mistakes.

He can be a high impact fragger, but comparing him to the IGL of the greatest CS team of all time is stupid. He's more comparable to Boombl4, who also has a lot of maps where he's a high impact fragger, and also benefits from having a god tier superstar to carry the team when everyone else has a negative rating.

Hes a more consistent version of Boombl4. Boombl4 goes from topfragging to bottomfragging every other game. Alex's baseline was more solid than that. Id like him on Liquid for nitr0. But thats not happening.

he is free agent, isn’t it?

2020-07-01 00:31
messi not worth 600k ofc hes worth 200m
2020-07-02 17:13
no, hes a human like u and me. he would play football for 200k also, cuz its his passion.
2020-07-02 18:21
and guess what the price of humans are determined by? supply & demand voila. Is there a player as good as Messi/Ronaldo? No, so they are worth much more.
2020-07-02 18:22
he supplies nothing and probably also demands nothin but distraction of the citizens of the world :D

I think that ALEX is worth for his price, because under his ingame leadership Vitality was top 2 team before StarLadder Berlin Major, won ESC Season 8 and Epicenter XL, almost had stoped Liquid before getting to Intel Grand Slam 2 prize at ESL One Cologne. And of course, ALEX individual skill is good for his role. Yes, it is inconsistent, but very effective Faze Clan need nice riffler with IGL skills: ALEX is the best choice

Were they a top 2 team because of ALEX being a great IGL? Or were they a top 2 team because Liquid dropped off and ZywOo carried Vitality hard? Personally I think it's about 10% ALEX and 90% Liquid/ZywOo.

Alex was the 2 best player of vitality and IGL at same time and if Shox worth 400k, its no doubt that Alex is better than shox when he was on Vitality he was been the second best like shox and IGL at same time alex>shox so alex could worth that ez
2020-07-02 20:30
If Faze is buying him then yes he is worth the money, they need a proper IGL and they should let NiKo focus fully on fragging, and it's not like 600k is a problem for Money Clan anyway
2020-07-02 20:46
tbh.... Theres not very many IGLS better than Alex. I'd fork the money if I believe he can be a game changer for my team. Cloud9 is apparently one of the teams interested. I could see them getting a major boost if they replaced JT with him.
