FlipSid3 - phenomenom of competitive CS:GO

Written by RossHolloway | 2017-04-16 00:14
I accidentally saw the last results of the team. Now i'm in shock!

FlipSid3 Tactics - is an American e-Sports organization. They have previously hosted three Swedish Squads, as well as a South African "academy". They currently host a CIS team.

CIS Team also known as team that always performs at majors qualifiers. Maybe for some people it will be surpise, but this team attended to all MAJOR events since DreamHack Winter 2014:

- DreamHack Winter 2014
- ESL One: Katowice 2015
- ESL One: Cologne 2015
- DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca 2015
- MLG Major Championship: Columbus 2016
- ESL One: Cologne 2016
- ELEAGUE Major 2017

Key thing is they always perform well at Major Qualifiers, like all 5 people just transformed into super movitated players who are hungry as hell to win (~~get sticker money~~). Huge impact it's obviously motivation of players to try attend to Majors.

Outside of Majors this team is completely garbage at other LANs, especially during online games, recently they can't even won some games against tier2-3 teams from unfamous cup (Hellcase Cup and etc.)

Perhaps this is the only team in high level CS that can lose against unknown team consistently, but also consistently play on 1.000.000$ events.

Question is:

Will F3 play at PGL Krakow Major?

Curious to see how they will play, seems like 2017 is most competitive year of CS:GO History.

It's F3, they'll always make the major.

the most boring team to watch in csgo history.
2017-04-16 00:30:22
You still have NaVi and NiP competing with them
2017-04-17 00:35:13
NiP boring?
Even their online matches are exciting
(e.g vs Astralis in ECS)
2017-04-17 23:06:55
Even the chronic depression of watching them play Vega Squadron was exciting.

Some matches are exciting for fans, some are great for haters, no way you miss their games:P
2017-04-19 19:41:36
I woulnd't mind it if they failed if they didn't have markeloff. but MARKELOFf, so they need to win.
2017-04-16 00:35:33
I want them to be in major because they have the best green sticker <3
2017-04-16 02:15:58
To attend a major is huge. Although F3 might not win major forever unless they need better lineups.
2017-04-16 00:41:30
They have no chance of winning a major in the foreseeable future. They're the 4th best team in the CIS right now (behind NaVi, Gambit, Hellraisers), and if electronic gets good he'll just get signed by one of those teams when they want to make a change. They'll do well to continue to appear at every major and make playoffs of Tier 2 LANs, that's really their ceiling
2017-04-16 02:12:26
HellRaisers is not CIS as its majority is not from CIS but from EU making F3 the 3rd best CIS lineup.
2017-04-16 14:59:39
their holos are too damn good for them to be missing the a major and not get that pie of sticker money
2017-04-16 07:13:16
They will make the major again, kicking out multiple scrubs. They do this every time, Markeloff and WorldEdit usually carry and shit on all competition and they get to major. It's impressive really, I don't know how they manage it.
2017-04-16 07:30:05
electronic not markeloff.
2017-04-16 11:11:54
Electronic now carries but before he was there it was Markeloff and WorldEdit...
2017-04-16 21:17:36
Gambit are looking for a new organization.
F3's contracts end on April 29th.

Speculation suggests:
+ somebody from either F3 or Gambit (or maybe Markeloff if he decides to play instead of coach)
Markeloff coach (or see above in bracket)
2017-04-16 21:52:42
how did you find info about contracts? 29 april?
2017-04-17 00:29:21
a) markeloff said on stream that they have contracts till april (didnt specify 1st april or 30th april)
b) this news was posted on 30th of april 2015 http://www.hltv.org/news/14862-flipsid3-sign-exten..

c) it was reported that they had 2 year contract

Therefore, putting these 2 facts together, we can easily conclude that they are contracted till april 29th.
