From the outside perspective, it looks like the in-game leader role on G2 is quite a task to take on your shoulders. Throughout the last 12 months’ time, no more than three individuals have given their attempt in leading the iconic G2 banner.
But is it harder to be an IGL in G2 than in any other team? and why have they struggled to find their footing in 2022?
That’s something we asked the former G2 IGL, Nemanja “nexa” Isakovic on the media day at BLAST World Final.
- I think that it’s hard to play in a team where I feel right now after they brought m0NESY they have three star players or like three playmakers. I think it’s going to be hard for any in-game leader to integrate a functioning system when you have three pieces that want all the spotlight, and want all the good roles, the OG captain says to Pley.gg and continues:
- It’s up to them to kind of restructure the way they want to play or maybe actually find the piece that’s going to put his foot down and take them in the right direction. So yeah, I think that’s mostly been their problem throughout the year.
