Fallen was really subpar throughout the tournament, and its not like felps is filling the same role as fox did...
Felps was playing alot of Fnx's spots like for like. Train and Mirage CT side were literally just ditto swaps. The real good thing was it allowed Cold to play his regular spots and he went back to being beast.

Little dissapointed with North, but man that team looks strong with Aizy, even if his role is different to the one in FaZe... Tbh, with konfig and magisk, Aizy can fall back to a more support role.
I really have high hopes in this iteration of North
Tough to say if Aizy had a positive impact because individally speaking he was fairly average. MSL was stepping up huge - might be because Norths coach could contribute as a secondary IGL during the game so MSL could focus more on his own game... Or just positive variance.
I don't know... I rather have Aizy performing well in this event since we have seen that MSL's long-term average is a lot worse than what he has showned in this event - so I don't think that performance is sustainable.

I think felps was maybe not the best pickup for SK. His aiming is pretty ugly. Relies too much on spray at medium-long range. Doesn't look like typical pro level rifling. Just an observation.
Yeh if only Hiko could speak portugiese - Then Hiko would finally be on a team he deserved and replace a baddie like Felps.

To be fair, aizy had relatively few frags, but he was still impactful. This might work out well, and it will have to I feel because I don't see MSL performing like that on a regular basis either.
Yeah Aizy is never going to be hard fragger in a team where Konfig and Magisks roles are defined. Although the possibility may exist on T side where Konfig wants to swap to Rubinos lurk role (or so has been said)
The impact point is the most valid. Sort of like a Xyp/NBK role, star level skills but takes a back seat unless needed.

Except they were redefined with Aizy getting K0nfigs role on T side.
In this tournament the thing is that MSL was taking all of the kills on the CT-side.

Considering I pointed this out already. I guess reading is hard or you are just looking for opportunities at being a contrarian to sound smart.
As for the CT side, that was MSL himself using people to put himself into fraggin situations, mostly because I believe he felt he was better placed to execute the plans he had in his mind on the frag front. Ofcourse he did just flat out frag better but that is normally a function that is accentuated by being put in situations to get easier frags that builds confidence. All players at that level benefit from this.
MSL is no exception. What it does do is get people off his back for the nonsense flack he gets from reddit noobs who look at frag counts and have zero understanding of the game. Perhaps that is the point you were also making but I figured I'd flesh it out.
Theres no reason he cant do the same for an Aizy or anyone else for that matter on that team who would be better placed to do so as the team practices and builds more chemistry with Aizy on the team although that should be a relatively smooth transition imo.
In my opionion personally, Magisk doesnt need that kind of help, kids just flat out insane, he will just outright win his duels. But Aizy and Konfig can benefit immensely from good support play. More so than anything MSL can do but all other options are workable to some degree. If MSL is getting frags instead as long as its a winning formula, who cares?
