LEGIJA to coach Kinguin at major

Former mousesports player Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić has revealed that he will coach Team Kinguin at ESL One Cologne.

The 24-year-old Serbian caught headlines in June when he took up a position as coach of Nihilum to help the North American team to prepare for the final stages of the season in the ESL ESEA Pro League and in CEVO Professional.

However, he was left facing an uncertain future when Nihilum decided to release the lineup in the run-up to the North American qualifier for ESL One Cologne. The team would still attend the event under the name Maximum Effort but they went out in the group stage after two defeats.

LEGIJA to coach Kinguin in Cologne 

Recently, Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić had been seen coaching Kinguin in a CEVO Placement match against melty. And while the organisation has remained silent on the matter, the Serbian has confirmed via social media that he will be guiding the players at the upcoming ESL One Cologne major.

Kinguin had been on the lookout for a new coach since releasing Danniél "dalito" Morales upon learning that the Swede, formerly a player in teams like Lemondongs and AliGon, had a VAC ban to his name.

LEGIJA certainly has a difficult task in his hands as he will have to guide the team through a hard Cologne major group that also includes EnVyUs, Luminosity Gaming and FlipSid3 Tactics.

If LEGJIA doesn't read mouz to some degree today, then what can we expect from him as coach? 0 experience, sh!t player, not a smart player at all, we see how Nihilum did with him as coach...Pls

Don't get the point in having a coach tbh, they did use the words IGL which changes the matter.. But i thought Dennis was the igl now??
2015-08-12 01:57
pretty sure why dennis isnt IGL atm is cuz hes focusing on his skill he prolly will igl once he feels hes good

hard to say when their roles isn't the same as i recall, i might be wrong though. again it was also based more on the diversity of nationalities within the Kinguin team :) and for mentioning fox just because he's hot topic for everyone

implying he isn't smart if gob says someone is smart then yes he is
2015-08-12 04:24
So if Dalito could've been a coach and doing that with "success" I think legija could do it as good as dalito. Despite that, I think Kinguin needs better coach especially if they want to use him like igl, but we still don't know anything about Legija as coach, so let's wait and see.
2015-08-12 03:54
every big team have one player that you all hate , for example nip have allu , kinguin fox , you lose your lowbob skins one day and blame one player for it and it becomes a trend , they archived the dream of every cs:go player , and for that they deserve respect , there are millions of players and they are at the top for some reason , fox is one of the most talented players of kinguin , you guys dont know him as the awper i know , and im not saying this because im portuguese , because i hate the portuguese scene and lack of oportunities , this new coach can add to kinguin , they shaked today vs my favorite team , hellraisers so i think they need some changes , cant wait for cologne hehe
2015-08-12 06:18
It's hltv they need to hate someone
2015-08-12 10:53
Funny thing about having a IGL / coach that isn't a player.... If Kinguin lose or anything goes wrong, LEGIJA will get all the blame.... and get sacked Instead of the players taking any responsibility

I like the Riot approach to coaches, that they don't interfere in game, just outside the game. It isn't fair for teams to play 5v5.5 just because they have money...

Wasn't Legija the one always pushing and dying stupid when he was in mouz? Suddenly he's a smart coach with a lot of gamesense. Seems legit.
2015-08-12 09:42
you seen him how he played vs mousesports few days ago ? he played for planetkey he was insanly good carryed planetkey with syrsoN
