B1ad3 appreciation (repost cuz bad title)
NAF | 
United States dyragu 
I saw someone author a thread along the lines of “blade best scout” and I wanted to reiterate how amazing involved b1ad3 is in the CIS region as a whole and this current Natus Vincere lineup. TLDR: b1ad3 is extremely under praised, he scouted 4/5 players on navi (Zeus scouted boombl4 btw not b1ad3), and he is the best model of what a coach should be and does. (Edit) nvm b1ad3 was involved with boombl4 as well lol. rant: I literally watch a buttload of matches in tier 1 and of course recently natus vincere has been on top. As the spotlight is directed towards them currently i was always looking for more praise towards coach b1ad3. I think he is extremely under praised for what he has done for this lineup. First off I want to talk about his historical affect on the CIS cs scene. If you don’t know already b1ad3 was the IGL of the famously second place CIS team (1st being Navi at the time) Flipsid3 Tactics: the lineup with markeloff, bondik, worldedit (these three were amazing players at the time btw). Second, b1ad3 is literally the best scout in csgo history imo (besides hunden and maybe daps). This man fucking scouted out ELECTRONIC, B1T, PERFECTO and most importantly S1MPLE. when you think about it b1ad3 took the chance of risking his credibility by picking up s1mple (who at the time was a nobody). He scouted electronic at the perfect time and amazingly nurtured him into an amazing player (b1ad3 was IGL at the time and in charge of nurturing talents). Scouting out Perfecto was an extremely hard task imo. Imagine cutting (he retired) your trademark in game leader Zeus for this random support player for Syman Gaming at the time. Instead of picking up someone like qikert or sanji (I know qikert declined the offer and idk about sanji) b1ad3 wanted perfecto. Then scouting out B1t. Now I gotta say this one was a stroke of luck honestly but still credit b1ad3 for facilitating this spot for him and fucking cutting veteran Flamie is a fucking risk and a half. Good thing the 6 man lineup was a thing at the time. (Edit) I have been informed that b1ad3 also was involved with boombl4 pick up oops but this supports my argument more so lol Third, I want to express how hard working this man is (I know most tier 1 coaches are hard working but hear me out). Not only does literally every one respect b1ad3 on this team but his presence during tactical timeouts is unheard of. Istg every single time this guy tacts they win the gun round like 90% of the time. It is fucking ridiculous the amount of gun round wins after tactical timeout navi wins and it is all due and part to b1ad3. Not mention S1mple has explicitly stated recently that when they were losing he wants b1ad3 to IGL but b1ad3 refused to because BOOMBL4 is practicing. Fourth, bouncing off the previous sentence, holy fuck b1ad3 is good at nurturing not only talent but IGL talent. I would say hundred percent that b1ad3 had everything to do with boombl4’s rise to IGL mantle. No one can take credit for it. Boombl4 is definitely the most improved IGL of 2021 without a doubt. Concluding statement: b1ad3’s legacy as one of the best IGL of the CIS region, his work ethic, his amazing scouting abilities, his presence during tactical timeouts, and especially his mentality of always winning should all be praised. B1ad3 was not fucking happy about how they won the major flawlessly…. He is always knitpicking rounds that could be perfection. He literally goes above and beyond for perfection. Credit to Spunj: “b1ad3 said to me when I asked him about the victory in Stockholm, ‘I’m not happy with how the last map nuke went and there were many rounds throughout the tourney were we could of won better’”. b1ad3 is the fucking best (I just think he is underpraised compared to other coaches right now) Thanks for reading lol ~some open IGL

Almost nobody knows it, but Blade is the one who created the "NaVi strat" when a team on t side is basically trying to surprise their opponents in literally last seconds of the round. Blade started doing it a long time ago back in FlipSide where he was leader there. OGs will remember times when this strat was called "FlipSide strat"

honestly technically overtaking zonic but I don’t want to say who is the best coach cuz it’s ambiguous. Both zonic and b1ad3 contributed to their respective rosters. Zonic I feel is more of a cheerleader that can demo review versus b1ad3 who can demo review but anti cheerleader very on task always serious

There is a fine line between cheerleader/ emotional check versus analytical /strategy. For ex. Moses is a cheerleader who can’t demo review Zonic is a cheerleader who can demo review B1ad3 is not a cheerleader who can demo review but this mentality I prefer more cuz it’s more on task.

Coaches in CS can be out on an Axis othat goes from totally motivational to totally tactical. The ideal coach is in a mid position or excels at one of them. Blad3 is an example. So Zonic is for me the number One. After fim I don't have a partícula order but the list should include Blad3, Threat, zews and Groove can be out into the list just by way of his great handling of Gambit.
