It's true. Although I didn't really like them, you could't compare any other team with them those times
2017-09-23 10:03
LDLC/envyUs and TSM were the teams to challenge fnatic at that time, and they got quite some wins. Although its true, fnatic had a long era of domination, no doubt. For whatever reason they stopped being able to win like before, for me the most reasonable explanation is teams rising to a higher level.
2017-09-25 23:50
No doubt, but you have to accept the fact that every win tsm/ldlc got against them was a huge upset, I mean, it was like a team like liquid beats a team like sk gaming nowadays
2017-09-26 11:05
I will say it here so i am somewhat up in the thread Ldlc never ever beat fnatic. Nv beat them 2 times (1 tier2 and at the major both when old fnatic were as good as over) The most dominant era was nip's. The most impressive was fnatic's. Simple as that. No other eras. 1 event every 3-4 months is not an era. Also fnatic and nip simply got worse. Friberg and jw dominated the same players they now get rekt by, not because the scene got better. They are just playing worse. Gtr and f0rest another example. Gtr was always better until 2016 when f0rest became better. F0rest maintained his level while gtr got worse. Niko is worse than he was and still not that easy to spot stat wise because almost every good player of the past is worse. Flusha same story as gtr. You don t become worst in the same team after you carried 4 years because they all became better

Historically, yes, undeniable Currently, not quite, I can see them making top 5 if Golden pulls off a karrigan but that's not very likely Also, how long did it take you to gather all these links?

2017-09-23 10:38
i know whatcha mean bro :D
2017-09-23 10:40
Mate i just rode the train and made 1.5k betting on them, paid for a nice wee holiday haha
2017-09-23 11:51
Yeah bro I wish I did that. I didn't jump on that train until 2016 with Dennis and that was a very short trip :( I just wish I betted on them before. The only time I won big against them was when C9 beat them at that DH tournament. That was the time when they were having their streak. I lost so fucking much at ESL One Cologne 2015 GF though. The new EnVy had just won a tournament and were looking fire asf so I betted all in on them on grandfinal and rip my dreams.
2017-09-23 11:55
Haha i got gold pickem that tournament and bet the same as i predicted. Good money there
2017-09-23 13:06
I was almost crying every time they getting wins in the tournaments, but now i would like to see them on top again

That may have negatively impacted fnatic, but also it must be noted that other teams improved their level and became a real challenge for fnatic. They were on another for a long time, until teams started to catch up, new lineups, new talents, younger players maturing their play and etc.

who says theyre not the best of all time? ofc they are, but they werent as good in 2016.
2017-09-23 10:33
Basically delusional NiP fanboys and SK fanboys who are all newfags anyway. Oh and baiters of course.
2017-09-23 10:35
i mean there are alot of people who hates fnatic, but still agrees that theyre the best team of all time, because its true. you cant really say SK/LG is the best team of all time since they started their era in late 2015 and fnatic started their era in 2014.
2017-09-23 10:37
They didn't win a single tournament until 2016, how did their era start in late 2015?
2017-09-23 12:04
they didnt even have an era
2017-09-23 12:12
Well I agree, 'era' is too grandiose a term. They were the best team in the world, but they weren't as dominant as either NiP or fnatic, or for as long. The same people who think SK had an era should also be admitting that nV and VG had eras. I don't really know what word to use for that.
2017-09-23 12:31
well they started to '' be good '' in late 2015, and thats not even the right way to say it lol
2017-09-23 13:08
Completely agreed. It's just sad that they can't hit the same form nowadays.
2017-09-23 12:03

2017-09-23 12:18
what do you mean it wasnt competetive ? navi, tsm, ldlc all were very good
2017-09-23 12:12
No they didn't, lol. Tsm was a joke with karrigan, navi had only guardian, ldlc overrated af. The fact that they won a major with smithzz shows how bad the scene was at that time.
2017-09-23 12:19
yeah expected from sk fan wanting to tell that sk won 2 majors when the scene was competitive

2017-09-23 12:07
Best teams of all time: 1. Fnatic (3 majors, so many tournaments) 2. NiP (87-0, so many tounrmanets) 3. SK (2 majors, few tournaments) Best players of all time: 1. GeT_RiGhT 2. Olofmeister 3. Flusher/Coldzera
2017-09-23 12:08
Sk/coldzera dominated on the most competitive scene of all time. 1. Sk/coldzera 2. Fnatic/olof 3. Nip/get_right
2017-09-23 12:12
2017-09-23 12:13
Coldzera has only 1 negative tournament (0.96) rating out of 39. He's won 7 mvps, 2 of them majors. He's the best rated player on majors, and the most consistent overall. He's the GOAT. /close

i agree but the thing is, all the teams are on a higher level nowadays, we likely won't see a team dominate like that again. edit: which means they are the most successful team of all times, not the best.
2017-09-23 12:18
They are not on a higher level. Stop these delusions.
2017-09-23 12:18
The cheats are at a whole new level :p Back then it was merely simple aimlocks to the head, today you have all-in-one package capable of doing just about anything imaginable. Of course this makes CS.GO higher level, but not the players, they are at a worse level on average.

They usually was playing against the same enemys in the finals etc same teams on every tournament. Atm you have sooooo many teams that can make huge upsets. You never know what team will win, I guess every team has improoved but fnatic still playing as they did in 2015.

well my little pony, early on 2014-2015 the scene was really really semi-pro. Now in 2016-2017 the level on competition is really hard, and fnatic not stay at the level, sk has been kept at the same level for about 2 years, fluctuating between the top 1 and 2, in these days fnatic is a fuckin dead team.

Yes when flusha toggled on they were unbeatable. Lets be honest - Flusha was the most suspicious top-player ever in that period. Even other pro-players public said that his clips were very suspicious. They otherwise very seldomly do that. It is also very funny how these suspicious clips stopped to occur - the same time fnatic stopped dominating.

Saying that we have a more competitive scene now doesn't means fnatic era was bad, it's just the truth. We have alot of new people coming in and doing amazing, and alot of people evolving. People started to get better with more tournaments/scrims. So you think everybody would start playing against the best players of the world, and stay the same, never getting better?

"Seriously how can someone say that they were not the best team of all time? They simply dominated the scene for 20 months with 18 premier tournament wins. Anyone who thinks they are not the best CS:GO team of all time has to be baiting or a newfag." Easily... this is your opinion and your opinion alone. NiP achieved the same thing during their form of dominance, however is widely speculating among the masses that the competitive scene of CS:GO didn't blossom at that time, which I can agree with outright, yet it's incorrect to remove any accolades NiP achieved at that time. I'll admit they are one of the greatest to touch CS:GO, but to state "they are the best of all-time" is an opinion, your opinion. Have a good day.
2017-09-26 16:34
A couple of things you forgot: -Literally has never gone out in the group stages of any tournament they attended -Literally top 4 at almost every top tournament they attended, except for DH Winter 2014(which they forfeit) and DH Cluj, which was their last tournament together
