They did beat SK 2-0. SK is the #1 team in the world. Was it in a LAN? No, but saying records only counts in LANs is shifting the argument. NIP's 87-0 was more online than in LAN. Nobody is claiming C9 is a great team, but they have had a mini-streak, and just saying "they played only t3 NA teams" is a stupid argument considering they did play and beat SK on 2 maps. They will probably lose this match against Immortals, but on the slight possibility that they don't? Would you still be sitting on the sidelines sniping them after beating both Brazilian teams?
And it was also at the start of CS:GO when the competition was a lot less rife. The closest competition they had was VG and they were still lacking. And if you can't see that you're a pleb, just look at NiP now :D
I never claimed British* CS was good? Nor would I ever? You seem to think I am bothered about my lack of scene lul.
NiP fans and Swedes in general constantly get tilted over CS, they seem to think their good scene makes themselves good personally :D
imo heres tiers for eu
between tier 1 and tier 2
envy,mous,heroic,astralis because they have potential to reach t1(Maybe not astralis tho because they are shit)
gambit and everyone else.
