You're dumb if you're just judging a team by individuals only. Faze 2017 had some of the best role-players for each role, and the synergy was god-tier at one point.
Olof was the best support player money could buy. Very very smart, high firepower, and ready to do everything for the team. Olof >>>>> Amanek, everyday of the week.
Rain was the raw entry onto a site, Hunter is not. Hunter just plays off of Jackz. Without Jackz, hunter sucks. Rain in 2016/2017 was the best/one of the best entry fraggers in the world, getting aces just like that. Comparing Jackz as raw entry and Rain of 2016/2017, Rain >>>>> Jackz. Rain is also an amazing team-player.
Karrigan in 2017 was a far far better IGL than Nexa ever was. In terms of calling and managing team, Karrigan 2017 >>>>> Nexa all time. Karrigan has 16 Tier1 LAN trophies, Nexa has 0.
Niko = Niko. ZywOo > GuardiaN. 2017/2018 GuardiaN was a god, but yeah ZywOo is better, agreed.
Overall, Faze 2017 was a much better team than this new hypothetical one.
