tldr but i agree... niko igl sucks
But they won a blast bo1 qualifier!
Best solution imo taking into account all the recent developments. Kick ynk for someone else.
They can sign daps, MSL, Xizt, kRYSTAL, Jerry (?)
Valve literally said they wouldn’t have a major until they can host RMR level (most likely 16 team international tier 1) events, so chances are that there will be multiple additional events where Faze can gain points to qualify for the major.
Your point about there being no t1 IGLs available is very true though. No one is available unless they want to dig deep into the t2/3 scene and buy out someone like Lucky or BR Steel.
Who cars, FaZe is tier 5 😎
Disagree the only real solution is to remove niko. Only then the team will actually achieve something. Relying ONLY on skill is NEVER a recipe for success over a long period of time.
dont worry, soon if results wont get better which wont, rain will be anchoring and kjaebrye will take his roles as ynk said - they wanted to give bymas rain's spots so expect this with kjaebrye
Rn. the situation with RMR points is weird since the Major is cancelled. And it's obvious that they won't get IGL out of a team like G2, Complexity or OG, but there are also good IGL's in slower teams. And not making any changes now is the worst decision, because they are the most dead team in the world atm., and not making changes is a waste of money for players sallary. And YNk is a great coach, benching him would be a mistake. For me they should remove rain, coldzera, broky and Kjaerbye and build a completely new lineup around NiKo.
bring back olof and make him igl with a coach supporting him so NiKo can just aim duel everyone
dude faze is dead already
Finally a thread that makes sense. Kudos!
I agree with niko being not that good of an igl. I feel like the team has lost so much passion for cs from 5 months into the online era but it is still no excuse. At the start of the year niko seemed like a decent igl - good tactics on multiple maps like nuke where faze had many set peices for outer however now it seems a bit effort less. Bring Back LAN's pls
by not getting aleksib and alex, niko sealed faze's fate. now its just a matter of time for the process of VP 3.0
Imagine if Faze take a chance on a unproven IGL instead of a young fragger. Grab someone who has igl'ed in tier 2 and give them 3 months to structure the roster how they want to. If it doesn't work, splash out and buy the igl you need.
