me. kansur the syrian prodigy
Lol, people can be IGL's but they don't want to take a hit, they all want to be that star player instead of actually thinking about what they're doing, basically the trash of esports that literally wants to make it big without putting in effort
It's too difficult, new players dont value this "job"
Look at BlameF who is one of the few players to switch to doing a lot of work as a IGL and he got Complexity to top 5 just through working super hard, Col had no super star players on it, like washed up k0nfig, washed up rush, BlameF, and two guys nobody has heard of (Poizon and oBo). If more teams just had a person put the effort into IGL'ing then they could be a lot better.
boombl4 was already an igl in qbf and winstrike, extremely bad example.
the example should be nexa instead of boombla
To become a good IGL you need a lot of experience. Why do you think most IGLs either took over after or during their peak, as well as average age for IGLs are higher/older than most other roles?
But as you say: Forced IGLs - Gla1ve, Karrigan, Apex, etc... They are chosen due to their personalities and reads of the game.
agreed on theory but in prac ppl like art,idisbalance and vanity exist
yes top team should sign me
Nah man you are talking shit. IGLing comes from the experience of player. :DDD nt dog ? whuff whuff ass fucker
the problem is teams giving them time and a chance. Players like BlameF, Golden and Nexa are good examples of this. The main issue for these big teams is the backlash they get if they do give someone a chance and results are poor.
IGL's should 100% get more attention. The primary reason why the Danish scene is so strong right now is because of the amount of great IGL's like Gla1ve, karrigan, BlameF, MSL, CadiaN, AcillioN, HooXi and HUNDEN(retired tho). Just having a good IGL can make a team play way better than they would have with 5 star players.
It is very easy why
Nobody wants to be igl because they will have the worst score
You have to be more aware of your colleagues than of your own screen ...
And as if that were not enough, he is the most criticized by the fans and is the first to be fired from the team.
Flagship case is karrigan
They don't even need new player's for that, the old player's that have enough experience can do it as well, they don't need to be superstars of the team since they aren't in their prime. Not every new player is going to be a good igl, boombl4 tried people figured him out now he isn't able to adapt. Just get some old timers that are decent fraggers saying he isn't a igl isn't going to work you need to start somewhere.
apex is a new IGL.
blameF is a new IGL on top tier competition.
boomish is a not that old IGL on top tier competition
magisk is a new IGL
cold wont last but he is a new IGL
cadian is a new IGL for top tier competition
TabseN (ty to MARK0N1) is a relatively new igl replacing gob b.
Same for nexa
In fact among top 10 EU team, who is not a new IGL? Gla1ve, who else?
Agree, everybody wants to be the star and few want to do the hard work of thinking/planning/preparing.
Wait for me brother! I will come soon!
IGLs are forged. They don't come up the same way as a star player. Look at the best IGLs. Glaive never even stared off playing the role.
Well, IGL grows in low tier teams and not in FPL.
