Aleksib explained

Finland ilikecereal61 
I see many people calling him shit or overrated so I thought I'd give my opinion on why he really isn't shit: He tends to research his opponents very well and is amazing at adapting their style based on experience. For example if he notices a play team makes often he looks for ways to capitalize off that. He also lurks a lot and calls by information based on demo-viewing and preparation. His style is mostly based on trimmed, working executes, grinding defaults to find holes in the defense and abusing them. He has a rating of 1.03, which is pretty good for an IGL, compare that to karrigan, daps, gob b, zeus or other accomplished IGL's. He is really good at finding and creating space and clutches a lot of round for his team. His nade usage is top notch and especially his HE damage per round is top3 in all of HLTV. His way of IGLing is to create a system which in he gains the most information to support a well-made gameplan. After finding that info, he usually executes on a site with well timed pushes and nades. OG hasn't been good before, but neither was ENCE. It took time for him to work out the roster and figure out their strengths and create a system which brings the best out of the players he has to work with. That's why, in my opinion OG (and old ENCE) is such an interesting team to watch. They might be down but if Aleksi has gathered enough information he can come back against stronger opponents by calling intuitively and reacting to plays he knows.

Agreed. Never understood why he got the boot on ENCE right when they were performing well.

that was one of the dumbest roster moves in all of cs, top contender and shown they could beat even the best teams at the most prestigious event of the year, falls slightly short vs the astralis god squad and then they kick him for more firepower and so allu could igl which he isnt even doing anymore
2020-10-30 01:42
he got the boot because he was the one doing the interviews. he was one being put into the spotlight. at that point ence was aleksib's team and not allu's team. so what can one delusional egomaniac do? he can get rid of aleksib because he owned 10% of the organization ence.
2020-10-30 10:39
I guess the qualities that op posted are hardest to quantify and understand as core strenghts. A lot of people tend to think that success in cs comes from the end plays, frags and clutches, when the set up to those are often what makes the difference. People tend to forget that people might be impactful in more ways than just the ability to press mouse1, and that might still cause more frags for the team. It is in my opinion the worst move in cs history, but same effect can be seen from kicking karrigan from different teams for more firepower, or kicking styko from mousesports.

We have a clip and the opinions of the people who actually listened to the calling the entire game in that analyst desk, and they say he is good with that. Since only them have acess to the full material the best "evidence" for that is the short clip + analyst confirmation.

I've just come to the conclusion that most of the idiots within this community dont even understand what IGLing is. How many times do teams have to remove IGLs and get worse. Aleksib and other pragmatic system based IGLs are incredibly underrated by the apes that just think its a game about clicking heads.
