You really feel like nexa is up there with the best? Personally I feel like they're winning on raw aim and not because of great calling - again, personally, I think he's the main problem besides the obvious (AmaNEk awping) Interested to know why you think he's top 5, maybe it's something I haven't noticed(?)

I don’t particularly think he is very good. The thing is, if not him, who? Washed up karrigan? Or maybe aleksib who cannot get into a single play off of the event? Or maybe tabsen who is good on individual level, but his team cannot do shit? It’s a choice without a choice, there is just no one else to put there…

Yeah, I get where you're coming from and actually see your point. Although I feel like my point still stands; they win rounds because of raw aim and talent, whereas teams like e.g. BIG, who don't have any "insane" players, atleast Imo, and still can perform. Personally I don't think tabseN is top5 either, but I do have more respect for what tabseN is doing compared to nexa - also, I think Jame is a solid choice aswell, actually. Putting the meme aside, he's playing the percentages pretty well, and I think that's part of their succes. But I guess when I think of an IGL it's based on the tactical level, and that's not necessarily fair - sometimes it makes sense to play off of aim I guess, for example with G2. But yeah, I feel like it's definitely debatable whether he's top 5 or not :)

Hm, Tbf Jame isn’t actually a bad choice as a top 5. Also, you are correct in saying that mostly G2 wins because they have very good firepower. It is indeed very debatable, cuz vp are consistent, they get into playoffs, but they fuck up. Where as G2 is like mega inconsistent, as u remember epl 0-5 and then top 2 of major. If niko doesn’t perform, we will get a repeat of epl. If he performs we will get top 2 of major. You know what I mean. I would personally choose nexa>jame, but it’s just because nexa “achieved” more than jame

Rn karrigan is not a top 5 IGL. Teams of the respective IGLs that I have mentioned have done quite good (astralis not so much but I would be stupid not to include glaive). Karrigan and FaZe haven't done much, his T sides can really be a miss and he still has a problem of calling under pressure and chocking big leads.

Like, I rate Taco, a lot, he's a great player. And apex too. But both of them aren't objectively top5 IGL's purely because there are other better IGL's arround. Yes taco did a lot, yes Apex innovated the game with his method(together with XQTZZZ) of implementing 6 man rosters. But if we look at then as IGLs, there are a lot of better IGLs out there

Taco is nowhere near tier1. No offence but he failed major against Astralis that was about to change roster. The only thing they did at IEM winter is They won 2x bo1. One of those was against Heroic, team that was playing every single tournament in last few months and You have so much demo's about them that You could watch those for weeks. Lets face it, bo1 against team that didn't even had the time to prepare or make new stuff means nothing.

yeah i think thats a pretty fair point to make. i rate him very highly bc i think any success that godsent gets is almost solely due to tacos IGLing, hes taken a team of honestly not great players and made them into a top 20 team that can give tier 1 teams a hard time

In terms of right now I would say: 1. Boombl4 2. Apex 3. Ga1ve 4. Nafany (could be swapped with 3) 5. Cadian Honourable mentions would be Aleksib, karrigan, James and tabsen Of all time I think (also keep in mind I don't remember much old cs cuz I started watching pro Cs In 2019) 1. Gla1ve 2. Fallen 3. Pronax 4. Karrigan 5. Zeus/apex/neo Honorable mentions being golden, nitr0, boombl4 (probably many more I missed) This is not just based on achievements but how good I feel they are/were as igls its really hard to choose
