Good luck, hope it works out well for Professor_Chaos as I enjoyed seeing him with Splyce at MLG Columbus, even if they didn't deserve to be there. If this doesn't work out I hope he will try to coach a different NA team such as Mythic(?) or maybe even Misfits.

No point of coaching mythic aka the stream team that recieve no money

2017-03-07 22:57
what a waste of money....coaches do absolutely nothing to help, maybe coaches like starix and robban and threat who have like 10+yrs experience, but kids like this are just making easy money being shit coaches that arent going to contribute anything to the team...
2017-03-07 23:02
i disagree. if you have a good understanding of the game and perhaps IGL experience, you can always be a useful second input. the coach stands behind the players all game, picking up on stuff that the IGL might not notice and can give good input during timeouts etc. also take some of the pre-match preparation load off of the IGL's shoulders by studying the opposing team. sure, in some teams it seems like the coach is more of a "pep talker" than an actual coach, but if you're a big org and can afford it, it's always better to have a coach than to not have one imo
2017-03-08 02:02
if they are good at it, its a bonus if they dont invest time or good tacticians or good mindset how the game should be played, then yes you are right. i think if you get an igl and coach together of a team and come together as a mind how the game should be played as one. And the coach does the call on what strat to be done and keep in check with things it would improve the igls performance.

NICE! I believe in you guys! I need you to win 2-0 vs Winterfox today and I cash in around 900$
2017-03-07 23:09
on what site?
2017-03-08 02:24
Nordicbet, I dont win potentially 900$ on only this match I played: Heroic win map 2 Arsenal under 1.5 Napoli under 1.5 NRG win 2-0 First I had the same slip with Heroic to win map 1 as well (Heroic win map 1 @ 2.70) Which means I almost couldve got like 2500$ instead of 900$ had they not lost train :(

You had Arsenal and Napoli both under 1.5 team goals? The odds must have been so short. Are you lumping on?
2017-03-08 13:23
Wasnt very short Under 1.5 in Napoli was @ 1.79 Under 1.5 in Arsenal was 1.59 Free money in my eyes

You wont become a top-tier team if you don't have a coach to make the adjustments needed.
