FAZE to Aleksib
 |

Aleksib is what Faze needed right now. he's the only IGL needed to organize such chaotic team and make it relevant again.

what we can deduct from this is that in terms of fraging mantuu has the upper hand. broky on the other hand plays much more wit utility to help his team (flash assists). This only shows that broky has more of an support role, whicch you give to less good players.

you shouldn't take any opinion for definitive fact. The truth to me is always going to be different than the truth to you
2020-10-29 07:47
The difficulty of judging mantuu vs broky is that while broky had more individually skilled teammates, mantuu had better structure and tactics giving him better chance to shine. I have no idea how broky would work under the leadership of someone like aleksib.

why compare olof with ISSA? If AleksiB joins, he will join in olof place right now, so he won't have olof as a teammate. P.S.: I do realise that you know this and only put olof there to prove your point. The real comparison would be: broky > mantuu rain > NBK cold > ISSA valde > kjaerbye

why would you only compare the last 3 months? Faze has had 3 different players as a fifth during that time. Obviously they will have worse stats during that time... Atleast do entire 2020. Cold is a whole lot better than ISSA, and just comparing stats is also retarded. If you only compare the last month, then ISSA is a better player than es3tag, Magisk and a whole lot of other players. CS:GO is also a team game where you help each other to win the games, the team wins or loses, not one person. Are you comparing peoples overall skill after 1 game when you play with someone new?

If you live in the present, then why do you go that far back? If you only compare the last month then cold has had a higher impact & KAST than ISSA. If you want to live in the present why dont you compare the last game Faze vs OG? Issa had 0.82 rating and cold 1.05, YIKES! Your logic is flawed. Also if you get trialed in a pro team, then they know what you can do and what you can bring to the team. They wont kick anyone for a bad game, that is just stupid. When did you see this happen last?

What about 1 month like I suggested then? Then cold still has a higher KAST and impact than ISSA. Also 2020 is still present and during 2020 cold is better than ISSA in every way. Have you trialed for a team? I've played in a team and trialed for other teams, if the team is serious then you will trial for at least a couple of weeks otherwise it's just kids with no intention of going anywhere. And also, bringing in low tier cs when talking about pro cs is just irrelevant because they have a totally different mindsets when it comes to trials.

Sure, that's why all the other guys were mad and didn't talk to Aleksib and he realized he was kicked just before the event started. Allu took the IGL because they kicked their IGL and bring to the team someone who wasn't IGL, that's all. Plus, if a coworker is fired and a friend ask me about him, I'm not gonna discourage them to hire him unless that coworker is not a hard worker or does strange shit. If they only benched Aleksib because of the firepower, why Allu would discourage Faze to get him? Why no top eu team went there to buy him? It makes no sense.

2020-10-29 10:11
Clearly we can see the reason aight?
2020-10-29 08:18
ye, allu kicked him for a reason, because he was jelly of the spotlight aleksib was put in all the time. aleksib is a gem for og just because how he handles promo for the team. he did that in ence too, absolutely brilliant interviews and a good personality on camera. basicly everybody in ence was/is just a bunch of antisocial nerds incapable of talking to others. just nevermind the teamplay and structure aleksib brought to the table..

why not? its not unheard of. also considering he had the pull in the org to make it happen, because he owns 10% of it. you'd be actually surprised how petty people can be for seemingly minor things like someone being in the spotlight more often or in general.. having a bigger public image. everybody on that roster was a nonamer in the european scene except for allu. it couldn't be just "we need more firepower" because at this point its pretty much universally accepted that it was aleksi's calls that made ence good. if allu honestly thought he could do a better job and i guess he did-- he was being delusional. so there was some personal aspect to it for him. so he wanted aleksi's role. from this i just deduce that he was getting sidelined because everybody was praising the calls of aleksi-- not allu the veteran. there also are/were some rumors that reportedly allu told niko not to recruit aleksib for faze, so... hindsight if this happened it was the best thing ever to happen for aleksib.

in hindsight it was an excellent decision, because aleksib dodged a bullet there. trash clan would have definitely demotivated him as an igl. honestly its like niko is allu's alter ego. both are delusional fucks who think they can igl. it took a few years for ENCE with aleksib to break into top10, but now he done that shit with OG in just a year with more to come.
2020-10-29 08:34
Can you prove that?
2020-10-29 09:08
I imagine coldzera taking over IGL duties. He has been dogshit anyways might as well give him a reason to be putting up piss poor stats every game.
2020-10-27 19:59
Aleksi likes to micromanage his teams, just look late 5v5 rounds when Aleksi goes down, they all look lost, that is the system he built for himself and his team. There is no way that he will ever be able to work with any veterans team, the best way for him to prosper is when he picks up younger potent players that he knows how to use and set up.

Nexa don't micro manage as much as Aleksib
2020-10-27 22:10
The problem with veterans is the have a stuck up idea of how to play CS at the top level. Very skilled players can totally play with aleksib if they give up their ego and leave it at the door. But with people like niko and allu that obviously won't happen. Could coldzera work with aleksib? Maybe if he decides to reinvent himself and adapt to aleksi's system because he wants to just WIN and is willing to eat shit for it. But many big names can't do that and they are too full of themselves and their own ideas.

The thing is that Aleksi is really not a proven IGL. Don't get me wrong I don't dislike the guy, I really believe that he has some merit as an IGL but what are his achievements ? Blast Pro Madrid ? 2nd at Kato 2019? Niko also has a Blast title. I mean a title is a title but we're all expecting just so much from Aleksi and he really has not proven anything, sure Niko had better teammates but Aleksi could also chose his own team when he entered OG. There is just too much to account for when microing your team, if one peace falls everything will follow. If let's say T's kill Issaa in B and Aleksi is taking a fight mid can Aleksi really focus on both things at the same time? Can he realistically call a rotation on B, fight mid and win the fight ? There really is not to my knowledge a T1 IGL that micros as much as Aleksi. He should rely more on NBK as a veteran to hold down his own site w/ one person and he should take his own site. FaZe did that with Cold and Broky and it worked out amazing, just look at Broky he's the most consistent and clutch player on FaZe. You need to let your players think for themselves, your job is to set them up for success and it's their job to win fights any way they feel fit.

My argument is not titles won in the past or whatever. My argument is if you want to WIN you will want an IGL like aleksib (or anyone else with similar ability) in your team. The issue aleksib has is that many tier 1 firepower players have an oversized ego and insist on playing in their comfort zone instead of making the coordinated plays required to win big titles and majors. You can go faze style and win ANYWAY with enough hard shooters in your team (at least occasionally). If you had access to inside information you would know for example that gla1ve would often micromanage like crazy and make super detailed prep and antistrat against his teams. But he also had the ability to convince device and co that his style would work and did not end up like karrigan. How did he do that would take a long explanation so I wont go there. Now Astralis is on autopilot and they can have magisk as "igl" and it works because the core has been together forever. I think eventually aleksib DOES get the chance to lead some of the best players in the game who are hungry to WIN no matter what so if that means allowing him to micromanage your ass you let it happen and before you know you win the big trophies because the enemy superstars did NOT have a tactical genius leading them. Top tier IGLs are going to become an insanely valued commodity in the near future. Take my word for it or not.

Worthwhile IGL is NOW a hot commodity and will be until Valve decide that coaches can call during rounds, but if you want to micro your team you have to PROVE that you're the genius, I personally believe that Aleksi has a looong road ahead of him to prove that. I also believe that 90% of Astralis success is prep work, demos, zonic + gla1ve cooperation and team chemistry. Plus Astralis to me as an org looks like they're taking esports more seriously than others, aren't they the first to introduce sports psychologists ? If you can give yourself 1% edge over the opposition it counts in the long run

Good arguments all around. I still think aleksib is mad underrated and he CAN work with extremely skilled players who are willing to play in his system and have a hunger to just win trophies. Aleksi can work with all kinds of people expect not the ones with oversized egoes and players who dont respect his calling ability for what it already is. Hilarious thing would be if he manages to win something even with the current OG lineup despite their limited firepower. Imagine the what-if scenarios playing in the heads of faze fans then.
2020-10-29 09:10

I think he is fairly rated tbh. I don't really see plenty of people criticizing him as an IGL, mostly just people that are salty he was kicked from ENCE and I don't think it's just ego, imagine if you're a football player playing for 10-15 years and a young (or old whatever just new) captain comes in and microes all of your plays there is no way you would not get frustrated at the end. I'd like to believe that Aleksi has a bright future calling the way he does and time will tell, but I'm a firm believer that you need to call at the start, let your players do their thing unless you pick up something that they don't know, call mid round to exe and call end round to make sure everyone is in the right place. But at the end of the day he is a strong and beloved IGL with decent fraging capabilities and he has a bright future ahead of him in this game.

aleksib is an amazing igl but is much more strict and structured compared to karrigans more loose style with mid round calls and different defaults that rely on individual skill, which is perfect for faze. No wonder they were so fucking good in 2018 etc. honestly, faze fraggers could join og to give them a star player with more firepower.

Ok so like lets be real, this current faze roster (olof, rain, kjaerbye, cold, broky) probably won't work out in the long run unless Niko really inhibited the teams ability THAT bad. Just wanted to hear some of your guys' potential solutions (remember that Faze has a little but to spend on players now due to the Niko buyout). Here are some of mine: Case 1: - olof (probably a stand-in and will continue to perform poorly as he did before taking a break) - cold (without niko/ynk might consider leaving the roster, also might be discontent with lack of probable short term success) +MSL/Karrigan/Aleksib (3 great IGLs with the potential to do a lot, karrigan has already shown his potential with Faze and other international rosters. MSL and aleskb both have great micro managing styles, imagine what they can do with top caliber fraggers. Buyouts would be hefty but imo worth it) +Valde/Bubzkji (Two all around star potential players. Again hefty buyouts probable but would really bolster the firepower of the team) Case 2: - olof (same reasoning as before) + MSL/Karrigan/Aleksib (same reasoning as before) Case 3: -olof (same reasoning as before) -kjaerbye (cold's value to the team is potentially greater than kjaerbye's and if faze tries to remove two kjaerbye seems like a likely second to go) + MSL/Karrigan/Aleksib (same reasoning as before) +Valde/Bubzkji (same reasoning as before)

I agree said it many times before that aleksib as the 5th and IGL. He isn't the best fragger but as an IGL I think he would be perfect. I would have loved to see someone like Art also but that's not gonna happen. But it would be sick to see Broky Coldzera Rain Aleksib Art Karrigan as a coach That would make such a sick team....
