they're saving strats for the major, dude
no, people saying rip Brazilian cs or rip sk era are just wrong.... so far, first of all this is the start of the year and we haven't seen any big lans or games after the major (i don't think they are "saving strats") they have quite a while to ahead to prove they are still contenders for the number 1 spot, and considering they haven't even done badly in the major and the tournaments at the end of 2017 were mostly sk dominated so i doubt they have slumped off that badly in such a short time period. I think the main reason people are saying sk = dead is just because they lost to c9 a few times and liquid once and to be honest that isn't really the biggest upset in the world as c9 are contenders for the number 1 spot they are definitely top 3 and are proving and showing great cs currently and i believe they will be some great competition at the tier 1 league of cs. The liquid loss was an anomaly and pretty strange considering how little they practiced and just how well they did at summit as NAF pretty much said i was just running around fragging, sk are a pretty tactical team so they probably didn't know how or what to do against them or they underestimated them and didn't really try to counter strat or study them but not really an excuse for this one but considering that c9 also got pretty much dominated by them i just think this is liquid getting pretty lucky. so overall not the fall of brazilian cs as we just haven't seen enough out of this team and this year yet.
not true, we will se after starseries and iem katowice what will happen.
