no clue honestly

posted 1 week ago

My guess is Sova, Brim, Cypher, Kay/o and Omen

Soulcas is best at Fade and Astra but can play Kay/o and Skye
Scream will play Entry but can flex to kay/o and sage
Jamppi is best on Breach and Chamber but plays a lot of Omen and has ability to play Jett, KJ, and Sova
Nivera will always play one of Viper Chamber KJ

That leaves them with an obvious hole at Brim and Sova as well as him probably needing to pick up Kay/O on maps like Ascent or IB and Omen when Jamppi is on Breach

Dima is for sure a better fragger than L1nk, the real problem is two things

  1. He hasn't played meaningful games at all this year
  2. His agent pool is very odd (Cypher and Phoenix who are ass agents, KJ which Nivera is much better at, Raze which will likely go to Scream, and Sova) He'll likely have to learn Breach, Kayo and Sage for the team to gel well

Guys are absolutely smurfing in T2, by far the best fraggers on their respective agents (Sym Raze and OXY Chamber) and even tho OXY was kind of a meme he's been dumpstering on teams like Akrew/CB and NA, the two best-unsigned teams. Sym is one of the few bright spots on TSM.A and has made them insane since joining for Precision. Both of these guys could be upgrades in fragging positions even for some T1 teams, can't wait to see where they end up by the end of '23.

Ur next up as well

posted 2 weeks ago

Was the best fragger in VRL this stage(especially last month-2) and is playing in a raze heavy meta that likely wont change for a while. Could a bigger org who needs a raze player look to bring him in as an entry fragger?

posted 2 weeks ago

Nismo John Aproto will for sure be on a franchised team IMO, Nismo should be guaranteed but IMO John and Aproto are top 10 igl and smoke players. Koala and Brawk are both good but IMO might just be on top T2 teams since most of the franchise orgs prob have better players at their position

posted 2 weeks ago

Victor was better than Zellsis in Stage 1 in pretty much every stat and actually played in stage 2 Zellsis is good but he hasn't outperformed victor in a while

posted 2 weeks ago

The only ppl in NA that are really better at his role than him are Zekken(arguable), Jawgemo(not really the same since he doesn't play kayo), Nismo and Xeppaa all of which I'm not sure would actually be better for Optic, it's just a hard role for them to ever change.

posted 2 weeks ago

People forgot he was the top acs guy literally last int tourney

posted 2 weeks ago

AGM is there because he's a pretty longstanding player in the scene and plays a fuck ton of agents, I think 8-9 comfortably iirc, he kinda the last player on the flex list because he's not the greatest fragger but is really experienced and plays a decent fade. Churmzz has been pretty consistently the best IGL of the non signed players before the mass extinction of teams. He's been the one constant of the one of the best FA teams(usually placing top 8 in most of the t2 tournies) and I felt like I had to put on one more underappreciated IGL since the other guys were pretty known. as for teague idk if ur trolling but the dude plays every single initator and most at a fairly high level so I'm not sure what ur on about.

posted 3 weeks ago

Guy has been grinding the fuck outta the newest agents who also happen to be 2 of the best in the game, his fade is prob the best in the T2 Scene he just has some flexibility issues. Perfect Academy player imo

posted 3 weeks ago

I know you're going to be SEN's new IGL so I felt like it would be redundant to put u on the list tbh

posted 3 weeks ago

He's great but I wanted to either have mostly FA players or guys that are playing at such a high level in their roles that they may be on a top 15 team by next year. IMO Zexrow is awesome but since DZ(RIP) started playing again he's been a good but not great/amazing chamber player. But when sentinels and jett become more meta again he's golden.

posted 3 weeks ago

Both have awful agent pools for the current meta so it kinda makes sense, Jammyz on DZ was really bad and couldn't adapt to either initiator or chamber. BabyJ is a two trick(he plays a lot of fade in ranked but we haven't seen it in pro) and both of the two agnets he plays suck and are only good on a combined one map. No team is gonna pick up a non IGL player who can only play the two worst sentinels in the game

posted 3 weeks ago

IGL's are the main players in his role lol, the flex initiator role is the most popular IGL role because it puts them on agents like Breach and Kay/o that can be played hella supportive. Of initiators in playoffs he's still behind d4v41, benkai, stax, shyy, fns, leo and was around the same as enzo ardiis(when on initiators) and crashies who are all marginally better fraggers. Thats anywhere from 7-10 dudes who he's not support as well as.

Based Screwface fan

Well on specifically Raze he was only behind the best one and honestly best player in the world in Jingg, Zekken played Jett which put him ahead of Alfa in ACS. I don't think you can ever call being second best an "underperformance"

posted 3 weeks ago

He was ninth in ACS , 10th in KD, and 5th in ADR in playoffs. He did great considering its his first lan and he is often put onto agents like kj and viper. The only main raze players he was behind in stats were Jingg and Zekken, both of whom performed phenomenally. He was also the top performing viper player alongside kolda and Mak0 and was very formidable on sage when he played it. IMO he was top 3 in his role at this tourney and should be getting zero hate for his play

posted 3 weeks ago

11 initiator players this tournament avg a higher APR than Mistic, there are 12 teams... The only main initiator players who have less are either of the XSET guys but they also interchanged with smokes a lot and FPX who has 4 different players playing that role

posted 3 weeks ago

Well Optic and PRX never had any players that were actual liabilities to their roster and never had fragging or role problems. The only time I can think of for either was when F0rsaken was on Sova which they quickly changed or when Victor was struggling but they were never gonna drop him after one meh tourney when he had covid. FNC has been a player away at pretty much every tourney they competed in, and mistic is the one guy who has struggled over multiple international tournies(was an atrocious fragger in both Copenhagen and in Champs last year) that has remained on the team. Derke and Boaster continue to perform, Enzo has been good since joining and Alfa is just getting started, whereas mistic is clearly behind on his role to every single player in this tourney apart from maybe Russ.

posted 3 weeks ago

At the very least Boaster has been a top 3 fragging IGL for his team, even if u don't like his comms he's a genuinely good smokes player

posted 3 weeks ago

I also wanna add in here for everyone saying Mistic is an overall awful player, I think he's genuinely a top 6 controller player (boaster, nats, redgar, soulcas, ange1 prob ahead but then after its an odd jumble with guys like zeddy and baddyg all playing well in their limited opportunities) but flex is not his role. Put him on a team like ACE or G2 and I think he could be a very good supportive 4th fragger for the team, or even a team like Fokus , MAD or BIG where he could be a star or even try IGLing

posted 3 weeks ago

Ya but some of his agents aren't necessary. The average flex player plays 4 agents (usually 3 initiators and 1 in another role) he plays 5 but they don't need a viper player at all with alfa boaster and enzo. If they get someone to play kayo on 3-4 maps, breach on 2-3 and skye on bind(who is better than fade IMO) then the team will be in a great spot. Mistic is a liability on most of those agents anyway so a replacement is necessary

posted 3 weeks ago

Brave has way too much overlap with enzo and also struggled in big games to frag(150 acs in S1 playoffs with a .72 KD while playing similar agents to enzo) They need a player on skye/kayo/breach which idk if he can fill

posted 3 weeks ago

FNC gonna drop their last piece of dead weight and have an absolute god squad for champs, might try to grab a guy like Zeek or if they want someone more flexible then try to poach Hoody, Cloud or Molsi

Texture or Meteor or Saya or Bunny or Seoldam>RB

posted 3 weeks ago

RB----> Texture

DRX literally has the best 3-5 fraggers in the world, literally no one on their team is bad at fragging and all play their roles well (stax top 2 initiator, mako top 2 controller, zest could be argued top 5 igl but more likely top 10). Buzz's struggles on Chamber has made them need to have more consistency on duelist. RB has been their worst performer in every single tournament they've been in, and Texture is the best Korean fragger out there rn.

posted 3 weeks ago

BcJ showed he was a really good omen this tourney(top 3 in acs with the best of the best on the agent, alongside really good supportive numbers) but failed to live up to his ability as an initiator player. Ayrin on the other hand looked really poor on smokes but showed he could flex well. XSET should move BcJ over to a mostly omen/astra focused role and have Ayrin play the Skye and Fade(which they haven't used at all despite her being the best initator by play and winrate this tourney). Ayrin has played many different roles in the past and used to play the second duelist (raze/phoenix) role for the team that for most players ended up developing into the initiator role.

They could have a lineup where BcJ plays sova(by far his best initator) on IB and Breeze with Ayrin playing Viper(his best agent) and then having ayrin play skye on bind, fade on ascent/haven and sage/fade on split and fracture, leaving BcJ to pick up Brim/Astra/Omen on every other map.

posted 3 weeks ago

L1nk is the exact same kind of player as Russ is. Theres no point to mess up chemistry by bringing in a guy who is also a low fragger and would prefer to be on a different role anyway. L1nk could not be a worse pickup, and Sayf only plays Skye on bind. They need a guy to pick up at the very least 2 maps of Kay/o, 3 maps of Skye/Sage and a flex of something like breach or viper on other maps.

posted 4 weeks ago

l1nk doesn't solve anything and they need a skye/sage player, if Zeek finds a way to be better at those agents then definitely but if not honestly Doma could be their best option. If they could also somehow find a way to poach a guy like Hoody, Cloud or Musashi or get a t2 guy like Kicks or Yurii that could be optimal

Def NTH lol Meteor and Joxjo are the only good players on that team

Delz1k still best controller LATAM, or u could have Klaus play smokes since he’s the best igl in the region

posted 4 weeks ago

I don't think I discounted Pancada at all, if anything his performance this tourney in his games was better than last. I didn't use it much against him but last event he was very much a huge tier away from the 4 i mentioned, including sugarz3ro who was amazing. That also means you count discount sugarz3ro when his team lost because in quals he was still fantastic and far and away the best controller in JP(not saying much but it does prove he still is amazing despite his teams downfalls)

posted 4 weeks ago

Adding this in to my own post but I actually think nats might be number 5, best controller in EU this qualifier when he was on it

posted 1 month ago

After the craziness of Loud’s exit I was wondering what ppls thoughts were on Pancada. Rn the top 4 controllers are comfortably Marved Mako Sugarz3ro and Sscary but the 5th spot is very up for grabs it seems. Pancada has been good not great but has played a lot of international games and atm the role doesn’t really have anyone else who stands out. Would love to know who else u guys would say, rn Delz1k, Valyn and Mindfreak come to mind as possible competitors but I’d love to hear everyone’s opinion.

Listen I get he's one of the worst fragging igl's these days, but you have to give it to him that he's made every team he's been a part of better.
He founded the RYE/ACE team and brought them to first in S1 and top 5-8 in stage 2
Got picked up by G2 and put them at the best spot they ever made it to, IGLed them to the semi's of Berlin and got oddly kicked out as a part of a dispute after last chance
Joins Guild and takes them to their first international LAN after being consistently not good enough for over a year, and starts his first map by top fragging against the world champions

Of course you have to acknowledge that both ACE and G2 took falls after their first success, but he raised a new team to be powerhouses, jumped ship to the biggest EU org and made them a top 4 team, got ridiculed out of the team just to go to a new one and also take them to LAN. He's gotta be the most underrated IGL out there and though his fragging his been abysmal in 2022 you gotta give it to him for constructing and igling this team from the ground up

mimifps bunnybee lorri or sarah would be an upgrade on alexis and could make them a solid t2 team in na with a few genuine star players.

It is a little bit different however because that duelist went from a phoenix raze reyna player to a skye kayo player, and now they're back on to duelist but the role is a lot different. Instead of playing the secondary entry they're playing neon and jett a lot more than a lot of them would've, for example zekken on and Jonah on Jett or putting Victor on Neon. Though its still duelist, its def a different form compared to the old 2 duelist jett phoenix meta in early 2021.
