valde on Aleksib: The micromanaging aspect is a little overblown

Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen's former teammate Valdemar "valde" Vangså has commented on the Finn's style of calling.

It has been said several times doing the last couple of years, that Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen is a master of micromanaging his teams. And maybe to a degree, where it has been too much. In a talk show with Duncan "Thorin" Shields, the former teammate of Aleksib, Valdemar "valde" Vangså explained why it could seem, that the Finnish in-game leader is talking and guiding his players a lot during rounds.

- We probably did not have the most vocal team back then (On OG) with Issa "ISSAA" Murad and Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski who did not say much. If you have a 3vs3 situation where Aleksi is dead and he is spectating. If nobody is saying anything, then he obviously feels like the round will be lost if he doesn't jump in and interfere and start micromanaging. But I don't think he wants to micromanage as an in-game leader. Let's say that he has three or four players who could actually talk a lot on their own, I don't think he would do this micromanaging style.

You can see the bit about Aleksib in the talk show here.

Since the interview went online Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen has been confirmed as a new player for Ninjas in Pyjamas.
