I agree. Elige and him have mutual respect and honestly, it is the best igl/mid callers available for the Americas region. I feel the core of a team should remain in their original region. And if Elige/or even Osee have to be kicked, you have room for an another EU player.
Pain look like a dead team. So, it would make sense. I prefer that move over flamez. Flamez is a good/great player, but liquid need strong voice to help yekindar calls.
Osee is contributing more, but Naf + elige are quiet guy.
