I've seen a lot of threads saying that blameF is one of the best IGLs in CSGO right now... and I disagree
Why do I think that blameF is overrated :
As you can see on his HLTV profile, he has great stats, especially last 3 months, 1.28 rating is insane, but if you look closer, most of the maps he played were against bad teams (he has 37 maps in main events and 67 maps in irrelevant events -> 59 maps at different Home Sweet Home Cup (5 events) and 8 maps at the Regional Qualifier for the cs_summit 6)
If you include main events he has 1.16 in 2020 and 1.18 last 3 months, which is still insane tbh BUT
he has 0.57DPR last 3 months at main events, the only players that have less DPR than him are actually, only s1mple, even broky, KSCERATO, HEN1 and Jame die more than him (broky, s1mple, HEN1 and Jame are all awpers tho so basically they have less "opportunities" to die)
KSCERATO has actually good roles to "bait", blameF is leading, and a lot of people think that when you lead, you ALWAYS have bad stats, if you lead well and sacrifice for your teammates, yes, if, like blameF, you bait and put yourself in good positions to frag, no.
He is topfragging as IGL, dies the less, almost frags more than k0nfig and oBo (depends on the time filter and against which teams)
The only IGL that topfrags except blameF is NiKo, but the difference is that NiKo actually dies more than everyone except rain, NiKo also puts himself in good positions because he baits rain in the trio basically but he is impactful anyway, still a better IGL imo, anyway
If you watch compLexity's demos, he's either flanking, staying behind for easy trades, or stays behind for flashing to not take the risk of dying, and he saves a lot, or dies last, etc.
2. individualistic playstyle
Like I said before, he puts himself in the best positions he can, but the problem isn't that he has this playstyle, the problem is that he has this playstyle while leading 4 other players, his calls are a lot about him taking initiatives and his mates controlling/freezing, it looks a lot like pug x)
It also looks a bit like NiKo's playstyle imo
3. average calls
Another time, like I said before, his calls are about him taking the duels, etc.
and if you look at his calls, of course, it's not at gla1ve's level for example, no one is at gla1ve's level, but he isn't even a T2 IGL for me, T1 player for sure but not a good IGL, imo tabseN, apEX, stanislaw, nexa, NiKo, Golden, arT, Magisk (and gla1ve), karrigan, daps, Aleksib are all better than him
really simple tactics, too simple to achieve anything relevant
TL;DR : baiting, pugger, not a good IGL, doing really simple tactics but wants to frag even tho he is leading so he tells his mates to freeze and he gets kills (like I said, he is good at it but doing this as an IGL isn't the solution on the longterm), looks like NiKo's playstyle as IGL but baiting more
