it's not a very easy role, but a lot of teams nowadays don't have just 1 guy calling. navi for example has s1mple as secondary caller, device on nip etc
Literally every IGL in academy teams?
Talents for IGL basically does not exist. You are good in T2-3 IGL but you do not get a chance in T1 because you have no experience. They basically have to get to some bigger event in order to show off against T1 teams.
well thats also because its harder to spot an igl. When you look at a random T2/3 team for the first time, you will most likely notice their star player by his stats or playstyle or something , but you will not spot the igl by any specific things.
Also i wanna disagree, we have seen a lot of up and coming igls who have gone to / created a top team the last few years (think about nafany, Nexa who became igl and couple years later he's in G2, Cadian, who started to igl and has gotten better individually and as a leader as well, Blamef and many more
