YNk on MIBR exit: "I thought we were moving along"

MIRAA
January 4th, 2019 23:00

Janko "YNk" Paunović discusses his brief coaching stint with MIBR, the difficulties that came with the job and what the future lies for him ahead of the first Major of 2019.

New year, new chapter. YNk entered 2019 free to explore his options after being replaced by Wilton "zews" Prado in MIBR as the team wished to return to a full Brazilian set-up after a nine-month experiment with North American talent that did not bring any significant honors.

Hired in August to fill a slot that had been vacant since July 2016, YNk left MIBR with only one title in his CV, at the rather uneventful ZOTAC Cup Masters. And while he agrees to a certain extent that results could have been better, he prefers to look at the big picture, pointing out that the team twice came close to taking titles off Astralis, by far the year’s most dominant side, and that he left the squad sitting fourth in the ranking, up three places from when he had joined.

YNk says he was surprised with MIBR's changes

"I think it was definitely disappointing in terms of results," he told HLTV.org while at BLAST Pro Series Lisbon. "Coming into the team, I set higher expectations for myself, first and foremost. I thought we had all the ingredients necessary to really make the team one of the best.

"But if you look at it objectively, the team played better than they had in the first half of the year. Some of the results and their positions in the ranking kind of reflect that. We had our opportunities to win some of those tournaments. For example, we had a close loss to Astralis in the grand final in BLAST Pro Series Istanbul and we had another close loss to them at the ECS Finals. With those wins, for example, the track record wouldn’t have looked as bad.

"For sure I am disappointed, but I do not think it was necessarily a massive failure."

Fans and pundits alike have expressed hope that reassembling a team fully made in Brazil, with a line-up that won five titles in 2017, three of which at Big Events, will give the squad back some of the flair that it seemingly lost somewhere along the way.

YNk, however, believes that the team’s problems run far deeper, dismissing the language barrier as the main hindrance to success.

"Communication issues were definitely there, but I do not think they were the reason why we lost some of those games or why we were not performing better," he said.

"I can understand the Brazilians, especially fer and coldzera, saying that they could be doing so much more in terms of communication if it was in Portuguese, or that they would be a lot more comfortable if they did not have to use so much of their focus to process information and communication. I think it is also an easy reason to pick.

"I think for them it was probably more just being a bit nostalgic about how things were when they did have a full Brazilian lineup and thinking that just going back to that would give them a better chance to come back to where they want to be, which is at the top. I personally don’t agree with that 100%.

"I can understand their decision, but, for me, it will be reminiscent of the fnatic and G2 lineups of 2017. It is not as easy as just bringing the band back together. The game evolves, other people get better individually, teams are playing much better. So it does not matter which players you get into the team, you need to make some changes to the way you approach the game, like practice and some aspects of professionalism.

"If the roster change results in them changing their approach to those aspects as well, then for sure they are going to be a very strong team. But if it is just, 'we are going to speak Portuguese now and we have these two new players', then I do not think it will be quite as they expect it to be."

Upon his announcement as MIBR coach, YNk had revealed that he wanted the team to have "a certain culture". Questioned if that ever happened, the Serbian noted that he and the players were not always on the same page, which often led to frustration as he was not able to impose his personality and style on the squad.

"That’s probably what I fault myself the most, that I was not able to really push that through and create that culture, not just in terms of in-game stuff, but also the general approach, raising professionalism a little bit,” he said.

"It did not quite go as I expected it to or as I wanted it to. I think things would have been a lot better if I had managed to push that through a bit better.

"It is a specific team, and I knew that when coming in. I could not come in and just be the commander and try to say, ‘you have to do things this way.’ It would have created chaos in the team because the coach does not have that much authority.

"For some things they are pretty reluctant because they are used to doing things a certain way and they believe that’s the best way to go about it. I can do my best to try and explain my position and why I think this would be good and give examples. But, at the end of the day, the players could say, 'we disagree, we think that is not the reason this is happening', and that’s that. I would just move on. That’s one of the big issues that all coaches have, except maybe zonic.

"You don’t have any real power behind you. You don’t have any punishments you can impose on players where they would know that, if they don’t listen to you or they don’t do what you tell them to, there are going to be some consequences. Right now, there are no consequences."

YNk laments that he did not have enough power in the team

In recent times, many have pointed to Astralis’ innovative approach, which includes the help of a team psychologist as part of a five-person performance crew, as one of the main reason for their successful year, with Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko recently admitting that Natus Vincere could not keep up with the Danes in 2018 as "we did not do all we could to employ a professional approach to its maximum."

YNk seems to agree with that notion as he states that organisations are partly to blame for the lack of power in the hands of coaches, adding that too often are players given free rein to dictate the terms in which they work.

"I think it starts with the organisation, because from the moment you sign a team, whatever team it is, they are working for you," he said. "You are the one setting the rules and establishing the guidelines. The problem in CS occurs especially when you are trying to sign a team. You are trying to sign a squad and you don’t have a CS team, then you can get a really good team. Why should they choose you over some other organization?

"You give them some leeway, you let them get away with a couple of things, and then it is very hard to bring that back. It starts with that.

"Then some responsibility lies with the players because they don’t really want to give up that control, which is understandable. You get to dictate how things are done and what’s most comfortable for you.

"Sometimes, in order to improve and get through a slump, you have to do things that you don’t like. You have to get out of your comfort zone. All in all, I think it is shared, but it needs to be initiated by the organizations, like we see in Astralis."

Putting the brakes on a project that had involved two buyouts in the space of four months and that seemed to be yielding results caught many by surprise, YNk included. "I thought we were moving along," the Serbian coach admitted. He claims that he was told of the changes after the team lost to Liquid at the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals, but, according to Victor "Nazgul" Goossens, founder and co-CEO of the North American organisation, Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and zews asked to be traded to MIBR before the event.

"The whole time I really did give my all and tried my best to help the team in any way I could," YNk said. "And coming out of nowhere, in terms of no-one even giving you a heads-up, it is not something that... Where I come from, you handle things a bit differently.

"I think the situation could have been handled a little bit better, simply because of how much work we had put into it and how closely I had worked with certain players, individually as well.

"I expected more from them in that regard. But I have no hard feelings. At the end of the day, it is business."

Despite all these issues, YNk insists that he "definitely enjoyed certain aspects" of coaching MIBR. "Of course competing is great, working closely with guys like FalleN, picking his brain and seeing how some of the guys operate was great," he said. With the IEM Katowice Major in sight, the Serbian wants to give coaching another go, but he may return to the analyst desk after the Polish event if he comes across the same problems that he faced during his first stint.

"Most likely I will end up coaching a team for the next Major cycle just to see if things can be different if I make it clear before joining how things need to be," he said. "I still have the desire to push through some of the concepts that I have about the game.

"If I see that things can be good in terms of the atmosphere and the work environment, then I can continue. If it is not there yet, if it is more of the same, my plan is to go back into broadcasting with this new experience and then, in the future, if things change and coaches have a bigger role within the team and more tools to work with, I will definitely consider jumping back into it!"

Honestly YNk did a great and did his job excellently, bringing them up 3 ranks with this new team and roster. Unfortunately (no sugar coating) the Brazilian core got greedy and didn't see the long-term views and successes they made have achieved if they preserved longer together. We'll see what this new team can do, gl to all.

He deserved more time...but I'm sure he'll have more opportunities if he pick a team with good players but without big achieves, cuz players will understand they need to change their mindset to start winning. Maybe BIG, NRG, Renegades... I'm pretty sure he will be (or already was) invited to coach Tyloo, but it's a terrible option.

3 brasilians were in a league of their own, with 2 us players dragging the team down No one would ever say that officially, but stew and tarik major winning performance was a fluke, they haven't been playing anything similar ever since Now BR players look like jerks for the masses but you should be able to look through and understand something that's unspoken

+1 and I would go even further to the fact that they think their problems will magically disappear once team go full BR. I'll wait and see what happens. If they fail again they should disband because it would be clear that its not about individual skill but their collective mindset.
2019-01-05 00:27
+1 I remember having a feeling like "oh, they finally stopped doing that stupid shit" or "wow, that's what I call teamplay, finally". I believe he brought a lot of structure and made them play in a less chaotic way. On one hand it's a shame he won't coach them anymore, but on the other I'm really curious what zews will bring to the table.

TL-DR: It was hard to coach a team that already have a way to play and are relutant to follow another path that at the first sight might be wrong but if you look it closely it is a better path than the one you are used to run. Also that it wans't expected, he thoguth they were improving and going forward (just like Stewie said on his twittlonger). Now if you want my opinion 100% this is all Fer (specially Fer) and Coldzera will. If it was up to Fallen I'm 100% sure that he would keep trying this roster.

+1 idk about coldzera but fer is pretty bad at adapting. When Stew joined, they set him to his comfort zone but fer started to play horribly bad. Then they slowly changed the team positions to the point that stew had his native agression roleblocked by fer because fer cant do anything but that. So stew became a new taco at the end of the year. Is fer a skilled player? Of course. But his lack of adapting could be dragging down the whole team system. If this team fail again, I hope coldzera and fallen move on their professional lives (or they kick fer?i dont think they have enough balls to that move).

This is definitely their last chance. If this roster fail (listen I dont want to be the negative person here, I cheer for them but it's what I think, they are pretty much trying to do what Fnatic and the french guys tried) which will might happen, I see Coldzera and Taco leaving and moving on.

They just have to stop picking players that have same role as FER. No one reads the game and collect information as fast as he does. Fer works with timing, those players just keep making his work harder.
2019-01-05 07:13
fer has been dragging down the team for a while now. He has been figured out, his over aggressive style doesn't work anymore on CT ( 90% of the times teams wait for him and get the free opening ). And his aim has also deteriorated a lot lately. He has, on his own admittance, never practiced a lot of DM etc. but I guess it's time to put Pub G to rest and work on his aim again. He was awful in 2018.
2019-01-05 12:08
I disagree. When you a confidence player aim training doesnt make much of a difference. As you could see, it worked well enough before to make him top 15 and top 3 in 16 and 17. He just needs his confidence back and maybe this new setting will do that.
2019-01-05 13:48
Since when working more doesn't work to improve something ? Maybe he had this confidence because used to work a lot to reach that level in the 1st place. yNk's itw seems to corroborate that kind of " let go " for the brazilian core too.
2019-01-05 20:14
This is not right. The problem is that when he is playing with another aggressive players they use the space he creates in a non proactive way, so he have to hold himself. He is out of his style.

Think he is referring to what happended in mousesports which is very similar to the Faze situation. Niko was very dissatisfied with mousesports and took over the IGL role from chrisj. Results stayed the same, but you could clearly see the morale of the team getting lower and lower with his complaining and attitude. He left and mousesports improved dramatically. Now somewhat the same has happened in Faze. Niko is dissatisfied and ends up taking over the IGL role, with the morale if the team plummeting. Not saying its only his fault at all but there's clearly a pattern. It happens with very great but also very dominating players. Just look at shox. Same situation. He doesnt like whats going on, takes over the IGL rile, but nothing really improves. These types of players needs to have a strong set of boundaries and rules set up around them, so they dont "run a round" and tries to change everything according to their will.

no cuz fallen was an IGL to begin with and it even happened to him with coldzera taking over the IGL role for a bit
2019-01-05 12:41
Niko had to play in team full of bots at Mouz. After he left the team passed for a lot of changes until they became good.

Well the team should stop crying because Fallen's tactics are probably the oldest ones in pro CS and easy to counter
2019-01-05 08:11
Ya, but fallen believes his tactics are better than ynk's
2019-01-05 14:56
maybe you don't know it, but the points are relative, not absolute. for example: if the 1st place team has 3 big wins and you have 1 big win, you get a third of the points of the 1st place and end up nowhere near them. but if the 1st place team only has 1 big win and a semifinal, then the same 1 big win will put you very close to them. it works like grading on a curve. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grading_on_a_curve , if you're interested.

2019-01-04 23:11
Right now, YNK wont find a team as profissional as Astralis, if thats the standard he, rightfully, wants to pursue. Thats why Astralis was THIS good this year. They brought their offgame approach to the next level, similar approach to what real olympic athletes does every day. No one besides them do this right now, and it might still take some time for other players to get out of their comfort zone, give up on some habits, and try to follow the astralis path.

They need to mature more before they could all be as proffesional. After all they were kids that no lifed and grinded a video game in which 99% of the people wont be pro and get anything from it.

yep, its called star syndrome. When the player is not at the top anymore, wich means he needs to change something to improve, but he is not willing to do so. The person thinks that the game did not evolved from the time he was at top and his/her solution is somehow try to do the same things he used to in the past.
2019-01-05 00:55
Nice one, I don't feel sad for him because l know this is not a huge problem, as he stated it is business and l bet he did his best. >it will be reminiscent of the fnatic and G2 lineups of 2017 Absolutely +1, but l still hope for better results

Basically he just confirm that MIBR players are not professional and they are pampered, that is notable if you are not a stupid and blind fan, fer doesn't like the game he just likes to play pubg, fallen is youtuber, coldzera is arrogant and thinks he is better than everybody, they just practice 6 hours/day and when they do more than this, they post on social medias like if they are "sacrificing" themselves, TACO also talked a little about "inside things that he did not like" in the past, Fer said in a recent stream that he did not like YNK trying to determine the correct hour to sleep or practice, this is a thing that interfere directly in your game level, this is why fer looks always tired and unmotivated things just getting clear, MiBR players are unprofessional as fuck.

I can't understand this whay of think, this arrogance, if they were good in the past sleeping bad eating bad, practice less than the necessary, imagine how much more they could have been, they don't want to sacrifice themselves anymore man, this is the point.

Most of what you wrote I kinda agree. If you give a hard look at every change this roster had over the years, it's always because of Fer and Cold's behavior. Ppl always blame Fallen, I don't know if it is because of the meme or because they don't really realize. I really expect to Fer retire soon. He's a problem in that regard.

I have huge respect for Fallen and i doubt that this was his decision. I am almost certain that It has to do something with fers and colds behavior. Fer was always behind the team, never wanted to talk in English and you can clearly see that he didn't really like this mix. In the other hand coldzera started feeling like he "lost his skill" with new roster and he just agreed with bringing back whole Brasilian squad again.

Fer is a nuisance, he lost the hunger he had and prefers pubg over cs nowadays. He needs a hard hit for him to realize how lucky he is with this job, as he would have much less without it and he should do everything in his power to be proffesional. In pretty much 90% of jobs need you to follow a daily routine, wake up on time and start the work ( in this case practice ) Astralis currenty are the main team pushing this off game proffesionalism, and look how its paying of for them. ( Cs players are no life immature kids that dont really have the life experience and havent gone through hardships to realize how lucky they are, and that they should do everything in their power to be as proffesional. What do you expect from people that chose to play a single game for over 10k hours in which 99% wont go pro and succeed. Yes its a nice story about chasing dreams but they have no life experience and act like privileged brats because of what they achieved )

Many people, especially those who do not speak portuguese, by his troll spirit have a wrong view about Fer. But it is one of the main motivational engines since the days of KaBuM team. This problem in the ear was something very serious, he lost part of the bone that was replaced by a titanium plate and nonetheless fulfilled hes professional commitments. About playing other games, all the players in your hour out of training have the right and do this

YNk, i'm so sorry for the brazilians unprofessionalism. i really was happy when they announced that you were going to coach them. i'm sorry for some brazilian fans aswell, there are guys that want fnx (2 years without playing in a high level) back in the squad, clearly they dont understand about CS. the team was getting better and ready for astralis, i'm so sad. i really liked tarik too, i will miss this guy so much. i dont know where this is going to, but good luck to them and hope the best.

Interesting to see that neither YNK nor Stewie2K/Tarik wanted that project to end the way it did. Seeing different reports I think that there's only one culprit of "unprofessional" behavior that YNK is referring to: Fer! I feel sad that they ended this project too. They were the only team to ALMOST win against Astralis (thank you whoever called that mid rush against CZ). FaZe YNK? Mousesports YNK? I think there's no team at all who rebuilded their original roster and got any success afterwards.

Sounds like Cold has an inflated ego and fer is just lazy. It takes regiment and professionalism to become the best you can be and the sad fact is they don't have/don't believe in that type of culture. Hopefully with the addition of Taco/Zews they can bring about some of their old chemistry but the scene has changed both in and out of the game, that's a realization that every player needs to understand
2019-01-05 00:21

Better than Robban. I don’t see Robban as an important piece in Faze. With Ynk coaching Faze, they wouldn’t even have to have kicked karrigan.
2019-01-05 00:52
I mean, it's kinda expected, right. It's a team full of accomplished players who've all won majors before, FalleN has been a veteran for more than a decade. They're not gonna let some random foreign guy come in and bark orders at them and obey, he should go to a young up and coming team if he wants to have that power. It's what Zeus did when he went go Gambit, and it paid off. I think zews fits MIBR far better as he's a guy who's got a leader's personality and will work wonders to get them motivated to win again.

Ynk, I’m very proud of your work, and I’m speaking for many Brazilians when I say that the evolution and progress built is notorious. I wish you all the best, also for Stewie and Tarik. Sometimes, it’s almost impossible change the mind of a team that were already used to dominate the world as the best team. It’s hard to start new things. I don’t think either that a full Brazilian lineup will solve the problems MIBR are struggling with. As you said, they need to approach the game differently, such as Astralis do, in terms of hiring a psychologist, for example. Let’s see what happens. I just hope they don’t separate as Fnatic did, and don’t become a new G2 either.

real problem of mibr is that they were #1 when there was no stable competitor around. but 2 years passed and other teams developped, the brazilians not. if they dont change things because of "lul we won major years ago we dont need random foreigner idiot", they arent top4. major champs have to adopt, to listen and to develop too. just bringing back the old gang and try to repeat what they did 2 years ago = top5 max

The unprofessionalism is going to kill MIBR. A team like Astralis is treating the game as an actual sport. They have dietists, psychologists, etc. Just to make sure everyone is mentally and physically at 100%.

MIBR weren't ready/didn't want to play in a different style, at least not the way YNK wanted. It's unfortunate for him to experience this in the beginning of his career. I believe he understands the game well and can contribute to any English speaking teams. GL

he said it, the main issue, in all the team but Astralis, the coach has no power. It's the player who dictates the rules and how things has to run. Truth is, they want to be called "pro players" but act like child. If you want to be a pro, you have to work this way.
2019-01-05 15:45
No point for a coach if no player wants to listen to him
2019-01-05 16:05
I remember watching astralis when they were struggling getting through the group stages at events. I remember glaive picking up his strat book, and i thought ''oh lord, here we go again, another lost because glaive wants to do crazy things they dont succeed with'' kjaerbye leaves, magisk joins the team. few months later glaive pulls out his strat book, im thinking oh lord, not again. Suddenly the crazy strats are working and the other team gets destroyed. It goes to say, that it takes way longer to succeed as a team and make the strats work. go watch astralis vod in the beginning of 2018 when they were struggling. MIBR wasn't patient enough, they didnt deserve ynk at all. i wish ynk the best of luck

2019-01-05 18:18
LUL this meme of team got so used to winning that when they faced harsh times they shift the blame and kick the "aliens" which are not bra7-1lians. And as YNK said : they didn't give him freedom. Baitzera and Fallen were probably more of couches than YNK. They didn't want to do things outside of their knowledge and that's why they were so trash. Let's hope everything gets returned to them and they stay in the garbage bin where they belong.
