C9 draws

United States sweaters 
The most unlucky I've ever seen. Of all the 1-0 teams they got FaZe, they could have gotten Navi Gambit G2 Astralis or mousesports. Of all the 1-1 teams they got SK, they could have gotten VP Liquid Astralis Gambit or Tyloo. It's unreal.

It makes any match victories way better. Beating SK > beating any t5 team
2018-02-19 03:37
how is beating a t50 team a better victory than beating a t5 team na brain

you will never succeed at anything and you're calling a double major winning team tier 50?
2018-02-22 22:07
Weh They'd have to play Top 5 team's eventually if they were going to make a run into semis.
2018-02-19 03:38
+1 Tough road. They were destined to lose to Faze regardless. I suppose if you're going to have to go through SK, now is as good a time as any. Tough matchup, but they have beaten them before and know their play style better than they do Faze's.

Feel like this was their chance to prove themselves as top 1, but they evidently aren't, and that kinda shows even us NA CS fans that they aren't, so even though it's unlucky, it's a test, and we gotta respect Faze for winning

If they don't make it to semis this event, the major was 100% luck. I about guarantee it was luck.
2018-02-20 10:25
You don't get lucky when you have to beat every top 5 team to even get to finals. And they beat them all with opponents on singledigit scores lol

if the can't beat the top teams consistently you won the major by luck. They got stomped by both SK and FaZe this event. If they don't get out of groups this event they don't deserve to be called a top 3 team.
2018-02-21 03:58
LOL. The top team in the world not only can't beat SK consistently, but they rarely beat them. So with your logic faze major win would be luck. Some great logic there bud
2018-02-21 04:01
Hhahahaha and who else deserves rank 3 spot now? Delusional hater gahHa
2018-02-21 04:01
Just means they are where they belong, rank 3. As for major win being "luck" no. Any top 5 team winning a major can not be luck unless they get insanely lucky during many rounds or some shit which didn't happen
2018-02-21 04:08
Faze had no tough opponents in a bo3 until the final which of niko and karrigan didn't choke would have been a stomp
2018-02-22 11:47
"almost all of them" so almost all means the only two ranked higher? Hmm

They beat G2, Astralis, SK and FaZe, let's look into these matches a little bit more. Astralis: first tournament with device since he's gotten back from the hospital/being sick, obviously they're not going to be in good form. G2: Very inconsistent team, play like a top3 team some games others they play like a tier 2 team, not to mention C9 lost to them in groups (16-8) overall okay win SK: they had a stand in which they barely practiced with maybe once (maybe) not only this, they just came out of a bo3 against Fnatic the match went 2-1 for SK so very close. FaZe: I can't say this wasn't a good match it was super fun to watch, overall a good match. But atleast 2/4 teams were not at their best. Then in cs_summit, C9 lost to Liquid who just got a new player, basically two new players counting steel, who came out of a bo3 against Sk, not only this They had a 1-0 advantage. I just decided to put this to emphasize C9 is inconsistent and not a reliable top 3 team.
2018-02-21 04:08
SK lost vs Liquid this proves SK is an inconsistent team rmaofl
2018-02-21 04:12
dont really think people thought they were #1? pretty sure most c9 fans were content with #3 for now but with a chance to improve as they are only what 5 months old and their roster is very young. especially when you compare the age/experience of faze members
2018-02-19 04:09
Place top 4 at all their events since the roster change (except the first one). They win the major, but lose 2 GROUP STAGE matches against the other top 2 teams in the world and then people say "not my major champs". Why don't Faze have to prove they're top 1 by winning a major? Why can those bots choke ever major and still be considered top 1? Why can they lose vs SK every time they play and still be considered top 1? Why do only C9 have to win every fking event they attend and win every fking map vs the other top 2 teams in the world to be considered a top team?

Not all the time, but at least 2-3 to show that they are consistently better

They are Major winner.. draws shouldnt matter for them..
2018-02-19 10:17
Honestly the draws probably won't. Just make a jet-lagged team a little more warmed up. Faze got their rage revenge and SK played a nice series but who exactly is going to knock C9 out now? VP? Sounds to me like the major all over. VP was the team that kick-started C9 into curb-stomping the rest of the pro scene one team after another. Who exactly in the 1-2 bracket is a bad match up for C9? Like someone give me a real argument here. I love by the way how G2 gets to cruise through every tournament never playing the best teams. I mean as much as I hate Faze they've had some pretty rough draws as well.

G2 played Astralis and Mousesports. They are ranked 5th and 6th, and both have been looking good so far. Depending on how the 2-1s go, there are plenty of teams that can knock out C9. VP can (but probably won't) upset, Liquid, Na'Vi, mousesports, Astralis. Aside from VP all of them are looking to be on better form than C9 this tournament.

Mouz beat SK, and Astralis is Astralis. Wouldnt call that easy. G2 in this form would've stomped C9 too, they have been terrible this event
2018-02-20 02:11
Just like how G2 was going to stomp C9 in quarters. Calm the fk down, these are group stage matches, meaningless. Too bad FaZe used up all their Cache strats in a 16-1 group stage stomp because they're mad they "choked." I can't wait to see KennyS shaking all over the place again. Only talent he has is the fact that he's a brain dead retard because he still smokes in 2018.

2018-02-20 01:33
That's what I'm saying though. They should crush VP. If they don't then the haters are right and C9 isn't the team people thought they could be. At least right now. Then again they 2-0'd SK a week ago on LAN so I'm not worried. I'm not worried about Astralis, Liquid or Mouz either. Mouz hasn't beaten them since freaking 2016. Only team that could knock them out if Na'vi and that's because Simple is playing in the motherland and he's on fire right now. Don't make me laught with that Liquid, Astralis, Mouz stuff though. I'll start worrying when C9 actually lose to a team that's not Faze or SK.

2018-02-20 02:35
C9 beat mouz handily late last year at DH at they'll do it again. Anyway no point in arguing. I've never said they are a better team then Faze and SK right now. Although the way they've been playing against SK I think it's close. Honestly in terms of raw sheer skill right this moment. Faze >>> SK >> C9 >>>> G2 >>>>>> Astralis And honestly it's not just the major the last four months will tell you that. HLTV rankings work the way they do for a reason and C9 were top 5 before the major.

Then why does G2 always lose to them? G2 to me seems to just be riding off past success of their players. KennyS and Apex are the past. Autimatic, Tarik and Stew are the future. Look at how old they are and the truth will reveal itself.

2018-02-21 20:01
Yeah but if c9 really wanna prove themselves as major champions, they gotta win one of the matches. Every team for the most part that qualified played at least 3 of the "REALLY GOOD" teams. Cloud9 didn't even beat one of them. They beat easy heroic and vp, you can't get luckier than that in a stacked tournament. TBH if they got someone easier in the decider round, they would have been really lucky.
2018-02-22 22:10

Issue is, if you wanna be a top team in the world it shouldn't matter who you play against to get to playoffs. People need to understand this. Sure your road to playoffs could be difficult but it cannot be unlucky if you are competing at top 5 level.

I see your point, they got unlucky, of course, but didn't they win the last major just some weeks ago? if you want to be the best you gotta beat the best. but they have a great team and I can easily see them winning more titles this year.
2018-02-21 04:27
+1 C9 don't deserve SL playoffs at all. Who cares if you got 3 REALLY good teams? If you want to prove yourself as a great team, gotta win at least one of them.
2018-02-22 22:07
They got 2 free wins with heroic and VP...
2018-02-21 19:54
C9 is Major champion and #3 ranking team. They should be able to win over SK and FaZe (they indeed did in the Major). What do you expect? C9 vs Tyloo, MVP and Renegades (3-0) to the playoffs? This is pretty stacked tournament. You will bump into strong teams no matter what, especially with the Swiss system. Major champion can't win vs strong team shouldn't be Major champion. With this result, it looks more FaZe lost to themselves than C9 actually won it.
2018-02-21 21:51
are you legit from NA, cause you're actually making sense. I mean these guys just played like shit, lost out 0-2 to all 3 teams and it wasn't even competitive vs Faze and SK.
2018-02-22 00:17
+1 Haha. I'm legit NA alright :D.
2018-02-22 01:59
'they could have gotten Navi Gambit G2 Astralis or mousesports.' eventually they did get mouz and how did that work out lol they just beaten SK last tournament and online. it's not like they didn't have a chance, heroic and vp gave them freebies, they just had to win 1 more.
2018-02-22 02:40
They did get hard draws tho Best opponent team in 1-0 pool, FaZe Best opponent team in 1-1 pool, SK Best opponent team in 2-2 pool, mouz But ur right tho if they can't beat just one of these 3 they didn't deserve this playoff
2018-02-22 11:51
FaZe, SK, C9, Navi, G2, mouz, astralis, liquid (top 8 teams) all had to play each other multiple times. Everybody got “hard draws”. It’s virtually inevitable in swiss. If you want to qualify from groups in a 16 team tournament, there is a 99% chance you’ll have to beat at least one of the top 8 teams in your road to 3 wins.
2018-02-22 12:17
I know and im not trying to make excuses for them, they shouldve won if they wanted to be top8, but there is a slight difference between hard draws and the hardest possible draws, on all 3 matches they lost they had to play THE BEST team in that particular pool of teams, imagine if mouz draw renegades and c9 draw Hellraisers
2018-02-22 12:20
Then we’d be here crying about how c9 got to qualify by beating heroic vp and hellraisers; essentially the 3 worst teams in their respective pools. In the end, the community just needs something to complain about.
2018-02-22 20:00
I agree with that, even if you do get hard draws, you gotta win at least one of those hard draws. They lost all 3, so they don't even deserve the playoffs at all here.

2018-02-22 11:40
"NA ERA" Yet Liquid is still in it.. lol

If they had qualified, they’d have gotten the 3 easiest wins (heroic, vp, mouz) out of any qualifier other than Navi arguably, who ironically also lost to FaZe and SK. Let’s not forget Mouz beat them 2-0 on what are traditionally C9’s two best maps.

+1 Cloud9 is REALLY out of form right now which doesn't bode well considering they just won a major less than a month ago

Navi have HR with stand-in,Heroic with new lineup and struggling Gambit with new lineup, not bad.

He puts out his respectful thoughts about why he didn't really think mouse could beat C9 and now when they lose, "HAHAHAHA CRY LOSER" you're just like the very hated SK fans.

Well after winning a major against those teams, maybe they would have expected them to win both of the games Edit I just realized that all of the draws were random lol

So what? Navi also have Faze and SK and they in playoffs now. Mouz have Sk,Liquid,g2,c9 and they are in playoffs now. C9 must win Sk, bcs Sk in not in good shape.
