Gla1ve vs Karrigan serious
nut | 
Czech Republic Domastopol 
OK let's lay it down boys Gla1ve 20 (4 Majors) LAN Trophies Karrigan 18 ( 1 Major ) LAN Trophie Point for Gla1ve Gla1ve done it with 1 Astralis, 2 if you count one roster change Kjaerbye/Magisk. Karrigan did it with 4 teams TSM 2015, FAZE 2017/2018, MOUZ 2019, FAZE 2022. Point to Karrigan International/National roster Gla1ve Danish roster Karrigan Danish roster, 3 international roster Point for Karrigan Time at the peak/NO.1/era Not going to count how many days and stuff :D but its Gla1ve Point for Gla1ve The number of players to do it with (this could be the same as the teams category depending on how you look at it you don't have to count it if you don't want to) Gla1ve 5 Karrigan around 20 (it depends if you count stand-ins) Point to Karrigan Final score: 2 Gla1ve - 3 Karrigan It's much harder to win with International rosters than with National rosters every analyst and expert that knows anything about CSGO will tell you that. Keep in mind that Gla1ve is 6 years younger and still has time to achieve more. Also, Karrigan right now is in a better position to add more LAN Trophies into his cabinet. My personal opinion is that Karrigan is better but I don't have a problem if someone puts Gla1ve over him its very close. Peace.

True but I consider it to be quite irrelevant for IGL. Also, karrigan prime was in CS 1.6 but if you want to add a point for Gla1ve I can see your point

how is it irrelevant to IGL? If fragging is not relevant at all you might as well throw in a coach instead of player You could have the smartest 250 IQ Stephen Hawking IGL in the world but if he has Parkinsons and can't hit a shot I'd rather have no IGL and just default every round

ur wrong, its better to 4v5 it with an igl than deafault every round. ur gonna get shut down super easly if u play that basic ur not getting any rounds. they will read when ur gonna come and save their utility, u will have to run thrue a smoke and molly at some point in the round. the catch is allmost any tier1 pro can igl and midround better than a main igl in a tier3 team, so a tier 1 team would never be "just defaulting" allso any top top team has a secoundary caller thats good.

Nah because defaulting precisely involves individual players mid rounding at least for themselves. A default doesn't involve heavy micromanagement beyond 'default, but banana player play passive' or 'aps player play for close aps control's. I don't mean 5 players do the exact same executes every round, no default in the world is like this. But I'd rather have the same players play the same spots every round and have them make individual plays for themselves than have an igl who literally had 0 individual impact in the game
2022-05-25 11:18

calling a good default with different aproaches to map control is a IGL thing. u cannot do it with no igl. and ur gonna get read by a good team, even watch something like c9 playing nuke vs faze. nafany is not a tier 1 nuke igl, so they get shut down, faze would have won their ct side with 4 players, because what matters is c9 dosent have a varied unreadable t side.

Yeah if you are good IGL you dont need to frag that much because you game plan is to put your teammates confortable and make your game plan works. Look at Karrigan getting like 0.9 rating, meanwhile all of his teammates has 1.10+ rating. Thats what makes a great IGL.

your saying farlig is mediocre, bro did you watch when he was at copenhagen flames he was on the same level as nicoodoz right now. He is good he has to adapt in a team that doesn't play for him and is a t1 team. Look at broky he was not as consistent when he came to faze as he is now. When niko was igling broky was a clutch god, now is a superconsistent awper and maybe star of the team. Players have to develop, if gla1ve is that good e have to make this team a top 5 contender at least. Kariigan made him a superstar.
2022-05-25 15:21
Lol so why didn't karrigan achieve anything with olof in 2020? No disrespect of olof or karrigan, but being a great igl doesn't mean you can win any tournament if you don't have the firepower. Sure you can win a match here and there but your big brain strats will only work if you manage to play as a team. Astralis has one of the best ancient T sides. We all know how easy it is on T side ancient right? Karrigan is the best igl rn but overall gla1ve >>>>>>

wait i understand it all wrong even now while karrigan won the major i still think its not even a discussion and i am right even if he gets 4 majors and 3 in a row he will still live under the shadow of gla1ve cz what gla1ve have done nobody has and will, im talking about changing the meta and changing the whole calling thing and dominating in every tournament including majors and not losing when it matters and being #1 for around 47 weeks, and all of that with just a good enough team and a good all around chemistry and mechanics let me put it like this last major karrigan was with faze and they didnt even make playoffs idk if they made legends lol while having broky twistz tho. the insane part is that he had to have 3 superstar in the team and a overperorming mvp rain to win the major which means its kind of a fluke and trust me next major they will not win it, why? because by the next major the teams that have made changed at the beginning of the year will adapt and its gona be more competitive, this major is the first for many players/teams and its a building phase for teams like g2 astralis nip spirit etc... next one will be stacked and 0 chance that rain will replicate the same amount of carrying he did. pls stop replying unless u have a real point to prove at this point ur wasting my time buddy

A lot of teams have superstars these days and a lot of teams people don't rate are actually really good. So you're right, it's going to be really hard for faze to win the next major. But I don't think it's comparable in the slightest. Saying one is better than the other is hard to justify. Calling the major win a fluke is insulting to counterstrike. They only lost 3 maps in the major and 2 in the rmr. You are probably right as well that it is a waste of time for anyone to reply to you, but here you go.

An international team will always have superstars. Thats.....the only reason to transition into one. Glaive will be limited to the danish scene if he's a danish leader and as it is, this is the best team he can muster.

Karrigan has been in the pro cs scene since 1.6 . It is not easy to stay at the top for this long. Maybe the teams he led didn’t acquire a lot of results, but ... it’s not easy to stay in tier 1 cs for more than 20 years. Hats of to Carrygan, but atm he is one of the best igl-s out there.
2022-05-23 19:01
Anyone who thinks karrigan is better than gla1ve is delusional or a faze fan, its really like messi ronaldo debate if u watch and understand football you know its not even close and messi levels ahead of ronaldo. same here: as simple as it may sound karrigan is nowhere near gla1ve and it is really a disrespect to compare him to gla1ve.. like how dare you hahaha, karrrigan achieved 15%-20% of what gla1ve achieved while idk maybe 7 years older than him and at the end of his career. If you understand csgo you should know its undebatable. and for people who say zonic was the reason or devve carried them or whatever.... just a reminder that karrigan played with that same astralis (hell even with kjarbye which was a better astralis lol) and achieved nothing but chocking in all tournaments and majors and they had to kick him eventually. and this thread is completely useless. what the fuck u actually mean by saying karrigan made it with 4 different teams?... he made it only with 1 team and its faze and he made it only because he had a 4 superstar team... litereally getting carried but whatever. please dont tell me that when u said has made it with 4 different teams u mean when mouz won a cs_summit with tier 2-3 teams participating and a 10 000$ prize.

i never said that u think karrrigan was miles better, i said totally the opposite i said gla1ve is miles better and it should never be a conversation between gla1ve and karrigan cz what gla1ve did nobody can do and im not being a fan boy like you. i am talking to you from a cs watcher point of view im totally neutral u are the one who cant belive karrigan won his first major and tryna poke the idea of him being the goat igl just cz he had 4 superstars in the team pls stop it ur embarassing urself even more as this goes :D
2022-05-23 19:30
gla1ve is actually overrated it is like blad3 directing navi over boombl4 zonic actually controlled the whole astralis he just had goat players with the highest peak 4 majors are something really crazy but i think karrigan is better
2022-05-23 19:14
Imagine gla1ve on the 2018 Faze roster, you think they choke in the finals vs c9? This narrative needs to end, Karrigan is not there yet, and probably will never get there. He’s a great player and the obvious choice for second best, but majors are the most important tournaments in csgo, and gla1ve has 4 times the amount of karrigan

No he wouldn't because they wouldn't even have been even close to the finals lmaoo. International lineups have only worked and been good enough to win tournaments under karrigan for a reason.

Lets talk when gla1ve makes this iteration of Astralis work. Till then he is a one roster wonder.
2022-05-24 18:45
Of course not, cause they would't qualify for the champions stagw.
2022-05-25 09:37
the only reason i favor gla1ve is cause ive seen him call astralis back into games that lead to titles youtube.com/watch?v=ZljPRQXgIfQ 46:50 - one of the greatest force rounds of all time
2022-05-23 19:18
To me glaive is on top1 simply because if Peak Astralis met FaZe yesterday in the finals, they would stomp them. Im a fan of Karrigans, and im so freaking happy he got that major its so deserved - but Glaive was just on another level back then. A Couple weeks ago, i watched some of Astralis major finals, and its incomparable

You still call it "exploit". It doesn't change the visual output of the game. Its like photoshopping every image between the game and the player, but not the image the game actually produces - just like color vibrance. Go on Google and search for Nvidia Freestyle, you might actually somehow learn a thing or two, With your logic, pros shouldn't be allowed to alter monitor settings what-so-ever.

2022-05-24 00:37
this is a very good analysis with karrigan showing to be better, but the raw weight and impact of glaive winning 4 majors AND being the reason astralis were so dominant (the teamplay) might make him better alltime. if karrigan wins 1 more major or the grand slam its him for me but rn its equal
2022-05-24 07:53
1 reply
The teamplay can be greatly attributed to Karrigan tho. Somehow every team he has seems to mesh together very well, and that is not a coincidence.
2022-05-24 08:19
Hard to rate since Karrigan didnt Had Beast Magisk at his prime In Tsm.
2022-05-24 08:14
the problem of calling out glaive for not having an international roster is Why would you kick an IGL because of whom you are the number 1 team in the world? In essence, the reason why karrigan led so many international rosters because he was never able to find a solid team to believe in...Boston major Faze was a top dog but after the choke, his team stopped believing in him. this is what happened in TSM,now Astralis and now in Faze Clan 2018 as well. While it's true that Karrigan got the core of device dupreeh xyp9x to the top of the scene, it was glaive who got them to the very top of the scene. also, glaive depending on zonic does seem a bit incorrect- zonic was with the core of DDX even when karrigan was on board the team but only started winning and dominating when glaive came to astralis. It's like saying- glaive and zonic share a symbiotic relationship with one another if you will

It depends on the metric you use to define the best, especially for an IGL its kinda hard to rate them.. Like for example in terms of achievements and what not its clearly gla1ve so far at least. If you want to built a team from a scratch and to be on the top time and time again it is a very underrated aspect of an IGL in my opinion and from what we have seen from karrigan he has done that as for gla1ve we cant really fault him that he hasn't won with multiple roster because he didn't needed to, he got very early success and didn't needed to hop from 1 team to another like karrigan. But I think that is what makes karrigan special in his own way as well, for being among the top consistently which no one has ever done for this long It really comes down to what you value the most or you can just appreciate the both for what they have achieved which no one else has not among themselves as well

I think you got this completly wrong. You can say that every IGL is worse than karrigan when you set it up like this. Gla1ve has been part of the most dominant era there ever has been. Being with 4 different rosters doesn't make him better than Gla1ve. Gla1ve is one of the most accomplished players in csgo. There is a reason why he didn't join another team. It wasn't neccessary since Astralis were so dominant. Karrigan had the chance to do it with Astralis, but it didn't work out.

And that massive choke in the finals?. KARRIGAN had a superteam but he choked the finals. And playing in international roster is a matter of adaptation. Karrigan is playing in ENGLISH for years, he probably doesnt have many problems with communication, the same goes for everyone in his roster(rain, ropz, broky,twistzz...), this FAZE team have a lot of experience playing international. (All the players from vitality have zero experience playing international, this is why the project didnt work) And when you play international you have the chance to get the best players from any nationality. While if you play just in danish you have to get the best players from only your country.

Didnt Karrigan recommend Glaive when he left Astralis?
2022-05-25 12:28
Karrigan best IGL in CSGO, peak Astralis best team in CSGO, debate closed Astralis as a unite (including Zonic, this shouldn't be understated) was incredible but so far there's nothing that proves Gla1ve can be back on the top with a different roster
2022-05-25 12:48
karrigan literally built Astralis and their core, gla1ve made them the consistent #1 team. In my eyes both of them should get the credit for the Astralis era, as we can see gla1ve is nothing without the core and is not able to build such a team from scratch as fast as karrigan did. I would say they both have very different qualities but imo karrigan is the more valuable IGL because he can build decent teams out of nothing, hell even Envy looked so much better in the short time he was there,
2022-05-25 12:53
Good points, but the main problem is that you cant compare success with international and national rosters. Why? Because there is no point changing rosters for gla1ve, since the roster was so successful. Theres a reason why karrigan has been in so many international rosters, because at the end of his tenure in these rosters, they dont perform well.
2022-05-25 12:58
Karrigain is better now, but in the past glaive was better
