just wondering what people think because this seems kind of hard to judge sometimes. shahzam, boaster, ange1 come to mind for me

boaster. his stream is by far the most educational i’ve ever watched. he’s top fragging on astra while giving insight to his positioning and comms.

overall it’s hard for fans to judge who’s the best IGL. so much happens behind the scenes, as far as strats, comms, and chemistry.

You say that its hard to judge based on strats and comms and chemistry and all that and yet claim that boaster is the best igl. sus

yeah, that was kinda meant as a disclaimer. from what i see and hear from streams, boaster is 1 fantastic IGL. i don’t hear shahz explain as much. shahzam’s team beat boaster’s team, of course, so something is up.

The issue is you're equating someone being educational as being a good IGL. You can be educational and be a mediocre IGL. As an IGL, your team all conveys information and an IGL decides what to do next based on information gathered. Hell, even Boaster/Shahz creating strats for each map and hero pool doesn't change the fact that that's not made during a game. That's great coaching, which is different.

I agree that it's hard to tell who is the best IGL, but the fact that Shahz has been around for a while and been highly successful, I'd have to give an educated guess and say he's the best IGL.

I choose shahzam because beside his basic quality as igl which already pretty good, he can control TenZ on what to do and what not to do.
He is the lone strategist and the one who review the enemy playstyle, watch old VOD, etc. And the coach too. Basically because SEN don't have analyst and coach so he do that too. That's what I think made him best igl.

2nd goes to boaster, because his strategy is so damn good. Watch some of his stream, when he analyze about post plant or line up or something with technical explanation is so great.

yeah shahzam is honestly the best IGL. he's the IGL, coach, and analyst, and even FRAGGER, all at once. its super impressive how he manages to do all that by himself and even carry his team sometimes. he truly is the most versatile IGL. and im saying this as a TSM/100T fan lmao.

I wouldn't choose him as IGL, if we are talking just about "a player who directs a team". Sentinels strategy is not their main strength. But if you also count firepower then he is definitely the best option

i disagree, he is the only person on sentinels who provides strategies, he does all the prep work himself, and they've been dominating, so clearly he's doing a great job. and the notion that sentinels 'strategy' is not their main strength is also partially false. sure, sentinels have great fire power, but so do fnatic and many other teams. what sets them apart is the quality of their IGLs, and shahzam is an insane IGL.

I'm sorry but you can't attribute Sentinels domination to their strategy man, they have the best firepower in the world, there is where they make the difference (not saying their strategy is bad, just not the best). And about not having a coach, yes that's completely insane and I don't know how long can he hold that amount of work. They should sign one and let Shahzam focus on being even better in game

"I'm sorry but you can't attribute Sentinels domination to their strategy man, they have the best firepower in the world, there is where they make the difference (not saying their strategy is bad, just not the best)"

you claim that you can't attribute sentinels domination to their strategy but only to their firepower yet fnatic has insane firepower as well? You fail to realize that the top of this games pro scene, firepower alone obviously doesnt win you matches. Strategies do.

The notion that Sentinels only won because of their insane firepower and 'mediocre' strategy is just completely false. Strategies in this game always beat firepower, provided that the teams in question are pro teams on the same caliber. That is literally why it is a tactical shooter, there is tactical depth within it, for strats. You're completely taking away from the prep and strats and calling that Shahzam does lmfao, and its cringe.

Without Shahzam's IGLing and strats and calling , there is no way Sentinels would have the success that they do as well. I'm not saying that ALL of sentinels success is from their strats, but a good portion of it is. the fact that you even admit that not having a coach is insane yet you still believe their strategy is not the best is just irrational and ridiculous.

all in all, your argument is just wrong

"you claim that you can't attribute sentinels domination to their strategy but only to their firepower" When did I said that? I'm sorry that you had to write all of that because you misunderstood me. Not having the best strategy in the world in any moment means having a mediocre strategy

because you literally state you cant attribute it to their strategy, then proceed to say they 'they have the best firepower in the world', which directly implies you attribute it to mainly their firepower, which is, again, wrong.

When you think about Sentinels the first thing that comes to your mind is their strategy or their firepower? What I said is that what they are best at in the entire world is in firepower, not strategy, what again doesn't mean they don't have a very good strategy

well, when i think about sentinels, the first thing that comes to my mind is tenz. but why does the first thing that comes to your mind about sentinels matter at all? thats not what we're talking about, we're talking about the MAIN factors behind sentinels's success. not the first thing i think about. their firepower is not the main factor behind their success, its a part of it, but the main factor is their strategies, because that is what this game revolves around, strategies. this is a tactical game with a lot of depth, even more depth than csgo

I feel like Shahz is the best at reading other teams and has overall makes better decisions mid-round compared to other IGL's, when it comes to developing new strats though I think both Ange1 and Boaster are better

Shaz is insane but Vanity's calls were also insane I would like to add he really led that team to beat Liquid.

Has to be either Shahzam or Boaster. I would go with Shahzam but Boaster is not far behind.

Shahzam has been the most successful and effective IGL as of yet
