+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+ sooooooooooo true
Tbh vp wasnt in slump in cologne :D They just played the best cs at this major
Its over, we showed them where trash belongs - dustbin
they were still winning a lot of tournaments in that time besides those 2 majors
but 'sk era' over for sure, next is c9 era :))
SK best team during the most competitive year and most contested 1st place spot for majors in the history of Counter-Strike with 1 000 000 $ (one million dollars) thats a pretty huge thing to accomplish, TWICE!
hate all you want. doesent change the fact. nobody will repeat this in this conmpetitive era, but SK can even make it 3 times the charm and youd still cry about "sk cheating" "enemy shit sucks" "player X has hurting toe" etc hahaha
LETS BE RRALISTIC
fnatic 2 majors in a row > sk 2 majors in a row
I'ce been trying to say this ever since they 'started getting better'. They never got better. Every major team name on the scene went into massive slumps/had to deal with injuries. It was never them winning anything, it was the other teams losing and underperforming. They just kept playing as they used to. Now that the scene is slowly crawling to skill ceiling it was back in the end of '15 beginning of '16 they[SK] are starting to feel the consequences of never actually being a god-tier team but a 6/7th rank team. Even Na'Vi with their 2nd placings run was performing better than SK ever was, since the difficulty was much higher. And I'm not even going to talk about the way old Fnatic performed at majors. If people feel like talking majors then keep in mind that 3 time major winning line-up.
I'm guessing people are amazed because they don't have a legacy in esports, other than the miBr team in 1.5
Where are the brazilians in this tread?
TRUE+++++ BRAZILIANS ARE SO RETARDED
0/8 LOL but thats a funny one
It feels like Cologne 2015 was the last exciting major we had , every major after that just didn't feel as exciting(maybe you can discount the g2 vs envy semi-final at cluj and Liquid's quarter and semi wins at cologne 2016 , but none of these recent majors had "the full package" as the older majors had had.
You forgot injured olofmeister in MLG Columbus
People act as if a bunch of broke Brazilians wouldn't cheat in a videogame to steal millions of dollars
Fer had injuries in the head/ear during all the year and made a surgery recently. So stop the "mimimi".
Also Luminosity almost won against fnatic (2015) with the new line-up at their first tournament in sweden...
truestest worlds on hltv, this should be highlighted everywhere
in Columbus they also beat mouz, NiP... their group was the second most stacked besides group D, Na'Vi with injured GuardiaN won against VP and C9 on groupstage and NiP, Astralis on playoffs, so i don't think they were that bad.
in Cologne they had LITERALLY one of the toughests groups of all time (fnatic-SK-FaZe-G2) and passed 2-0, flipsid3 was pretty easy but then they won against VP (who was nuts), Liquid, just as Na'Vi in Columbus, beat up Na'Vi and fnatic in playoffs, i guess they deserved to be there huh?
if you look back at ANY title they way you're looking, you'll always find some bullshit excuse for team A winning.
Eh, I don't believe that.
I believe that CS:GO, just as any other e-sport and as many other sports has "moments". So just stop saying that "a team was in their slump". They weren't just good enough/healthy enough/focused enough. This is just normal! It's impossible to be always 100% considering how many tournaments they have to participate and all the pressure the fans does on them.
SK were great by winning 2 majors in a row, but I'm not sure if they will win a 3rd in a row. But that still might happen, we can't tell from now.
VP, Navi, Dignitas, and C9 winning different tournaments just proves that the CS:GO scene is more even than before, which is great for the community and all the public that goes on LAN to watch their idols.
As a brazilian, I must apologize for any stupid behavior by all brazilians fans. We are just so passionate by cs:go that we don't know how to cheer sometimes, and loosing is too difficult for some, that attacking someone seems the best way to defend themselves. It's not right, therefore, in the name of Brazil, I'm sorry.
However, this inappropriate behavior also comes from different countries, which isn't right as well.
So, I hope all this stupid HATE may disappear and we can cheer as passionate, but respecting each other.
As FalleN said yesterday in portuguese: "Please respect everyone, they have a big story and every game is a win for everyone".
Thank you guys for the event on Brazil, and SK for the great game.
And congratulations to Cloud9 for the amazing games we saw yesterday! I'm very happy for them, well deserved!!!!
next to liquid u forgot to write lucky coldzera jumpshot that activated chokequid
agree except the vp in cologne part.
cheats + ez road to win gave them those two majors
The thing is, many of the tier 2 teams from last year have become insane this year, Titan(G2), Dignitas, Luminosity(SK), SK(Heroic) although they were tier 3, C9, but they were tier 5, and some of the tier 1 teams from last year have gone tier 2, TSM(Astralis), EnVyUs, Fnatic etc.
I can write words like this for anyone major winner.
This is so pointless. You guys look so bad trying to remove the merit out of SK wins. It is not their fault the other teams were on a slump. It just shows you how little understanding you have on sports. A win is a win and have the same value as others wins, unless you cheat or get any kind of outside help to get it. Since the cheating part is only another cheap-chat that is used to demoralize and remove the credit of SK's achievements, what you are saying is shit...
And for the record, there was/is no SK era. The game is really even right now, and SK is just one out of 5-6 teams that can win any champioship.
Liquid were not tilting, they were making the run of their lives at that major and they expected they will do good against SK
Vp wasnt in slump on majors
INCREDIBLE TO SEE HOW BLIND A HATER CAN BE
pretty sure Fallen is crying himself to the bank
1.dh cluj:envy defeated slumping fnatic,tier2 g2 and navi who were not even top 6 back then.
2.esl cologne 2015:fnatic had to face luminosity with bot steel,vp who were in slump(they did look strong at that tournament exactly like at esl cologne 2016) but they were in slump bwfore that tournament and newly formed envy.
3.esl katowice 2015:fnatic faced penta in qf(LoL), and vp who were in slump and nip who just added a new player allu.
It seems like esl cologne 2014 was the most hard earned major. nip played really close games but c9,ldlc and fnatic looked extremely strong.
Edit:anyway it doesnt matter cuz they (luminosity)were the strongest team during that tournament and they won it.
what they can do if all the other teams arent in their level?
Lmao u idiot, u could say this about every team and call out that other teams were in a slump etc...ofcourse there is a reason they win or lose and many things play a big role in cs and luck is one of them
In those words you say you just hate SK
lmao,stop those utter trashes threads
and they never beat fnatic lol
this is funny
VP dont win a tournament, but does pretty well: is in a slump
NAVI the same
FNATIC the same
ENVYUS the same
every top team that is not winnning tournaments is in a slump, except SK gaming, by the HLTV logic
you see, by this logic, i can say that epicenter and esl one nyk, every win against SK gaming was during they slump
this is worst excuse ever lol
neither sk or vp is worthy of rank 1 spot of the true competitive cs, once the engines start running again in the top teams vp will be knocked back down to top3-5 where they belong, and sk drifting outside of top5
hahaha discrediting SK some more please
Fnatic won vs even more slumping teams and less competition
envyus too it was just a fluke they bombed out in groups the next one KEK
Then C9 title means nothing too since VP, NiP, Dignitas, Envyus, Fnatic, SK, Navi are all in a slump. The slump stops only when a EU team win.
Kri kri kri kri
sk fucking SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Then 85% of the Nip era is literally the same non-competetive bullshit :D
It's very easy to made a list of 'negative points' to belittle every single CSGO major champion run.
This thread: the ones for both SK trophies.
yes favela don't deserve wins
MOST SUCCESSFUL TEAM CS:GO ALL TIME:
VP was in slump but played very well against SK.
AdreN was godlike in the major.
liquid choke and sk is shit... pls I think it is better say that they were saving strat
Fnatic was better at 2nd major they even beated g2 that was in a god like run
+1 But you have to admit that they have a good level, and for being new in the pro scene they did pretty well.
You could create excuses for every single tournament win in this game. I could say to you that c9 only won EPL because they faced a tired and choked dignitas, a bad NiP with a stand-in, mouz the one man army team, SK on a slump, VP and NaVi didnt attended and etc... but thats silly and plain wrong.
Every title is a great achievement, SK majors was the ones that any team wanted, and if they won it was because they deserved it. Also yes, i know that this is a bait.
been saying this for months, sk's run was a fluke
teams that were slumping: fnatic navi vp astralis g2 envyus nip etc
now that the teams are good again (vp navi) sk cant win shit
no team is god-like.
that team garnered two majors in a row because they were (and are, regardless of the current slump) great and no ordinary team wins as much as they did in that period by just luck.
just bite the bullet, man. lg/sk deserve the majors they have, because you know how not one shot (like cold's) can win 16 rounds or several tournaments in a row.
hopeful it was a bait.
NiP won Dreamhack but hey C9 just won EPL so let's go full retard and start calling out SK? Nice logic. Why don't you cretins just create a circle jerk thread and title it "we hate sk" and fap over each other's comments instead? I mean ffs move on in life!
Slump or no slump, victory is victory. If GuardiaN put his hand through a lathe while picking Zeus's ass with his other hand, how is that anyone else's fault? If flusha sat on olof's hand and ruined his wrist with a fart, wtf does that have to do with SK? If VP has a slump then it's their fucking problem. Pasha has a child to look after, go figure how that works. Fix your slumps or gtfo from the pro circuit.
Jumping awp shots have given every team the same advantage. Why are you salty because SK got more mileage out of it? Go cry a river in front of Valve's office. You talk as if no other team has had luck in counter strike ever. SpawN hiding behind a box in 1.6 and that corner not being checked by 4 people is pure luck. Yes, luck has been around since before 1.6. I could say 2 players lining up on B double doors at Cobblestone is pure luck for a guy spraying his M4 from the statue. But Eurotards go "omg skill spray control orgasm shit fuck my mom" The list is fucking endless...
Bury the fucking past and move on ffs. Give yourself some closure because right now you just sound like a bitch in denial. You keep going to the two majors in a row like it's your ex with bigger tits than before. C9 won EPL, you hate Brazilians because they knocked your favorite European teams' teeth in and continue to do so because they reached yet another final over everyone else, water is wet, luck and fluke are gonna be around whether you like it or not.
Fallen needs Cogu in SK his first love. Second love is Coldzera.
lmao people saying that this is a bait
lol, they take the group of death in Cologne, but tbh they had very lucky in both majors
well, since you put it that way...yeah it was overrated. But still very impressive as SK took only one year of training and swapped out two players like 1 month prior before they started winning it all...that's quite an accomplishment.
Triggered Favela incoming run now m8
Nice excuses man, all majors of 2016 were won by SK, cry is free.
fnatic had a good run, and they played good cs. but Virtus.pro was utter shit, navi was slumping hard, SK wasnt even created, dignitas was somewhere in tier 3, envy won a major and then dived head out the next
see how easy it is to make excuses?
+1 I agree very well said
You win 2 majors in a row and out of nowhere u can insult and say that EU is shit. My gosh
Ps: The comment is for the Br people, or monkeys, whatever u prefer
esl pro league with g2 playing very well? would win the elegue if not for the stupid management elegue. In addition, they lost that championship for cloud9 ever won anything. They lost the epicenter for vp where the nuke lost both pistols and with the team with coexistence issues. In Esl NY team because the Fer problems that was not in shape and this reflected in the games. Voces need to understand that the SK has the Cold that is rather the best player in 2016 and a team that clashes with anyone.
don't you people have anything better to do in life to write shit like these?
