"IDK, there's a reason cloud9 looked so shit, and it's ALEX's terrible calling"
Yes, he was a major part of C9s failure, 100%.
"He had some good pieces to play with and just threw most of the time"
Yes and no. Kassad was a very good and useful person that ALEX could have used, but Kassad obviously left because of some "internal problems".
Sure, ALEX is not the best IGL in the world, neither is ChrisJ, but FPX does not really need a support player since they have STYKO and i suppose zehN. They do need some sort of entry player though and ALEX can play as a entry.
