Astralis no era
Russia alexo22 
They've won 4 tournaments of 8 they attended. Without a major title they haven't created their own era yet

SK had won two, they didn't have one. NiP had only won one of them and they did have one for being the team to be the best there was for two years straight. Astralis would need to achieve the ssame level of dominance NiP/fnatic did to claim a title of "era-defining" dominance. Winning the Major is huge, but it doesn't mean anything if they crumble afterwards. Like Cloud9 and Gambit did. So they won't automatically have one "just because they won a Major", they already have one, first of all.

Eh, I guess you have been under the rock last 6 months. If Astralis takes major, they got their era even if they wont win anything ever again.

Not at all. If Astralis takes the Major, it signifies they are the best team in the world... The only reason NiP and fnatic are credited with having "era-defining dominance" is because of the course of time they were unbeatable. Astralis winning the Major will signify their dominance for this year, but it won't be "era-defining" dominance unless they keep it up for over a years worth of length of time.

Astralis has always been that 2nd place team back when fnatic was #1 then when sk was at the top they were second place. Then when faze came up they were third. Now that all the other teams are out of wack, they can easily be top tier as long as they dont fall into old habits and choke.
2018-08-08 20:20
+, it's pretty funny that they have been playing with their core (dupreeh, dev1ce, x9pyx) since 2013 and even sometimes had good times like 5 tournaments in a row under TSM in 2015 and winning a major in 2017. But only now they have a real chance to become a legend team like NiP, Fnatic or SK
2018-08-08 20:28
theyve always been at that level. Astralis main issue was always them choking. Theyve since passed the curse on to faze. Now that every top tier team is listening to the fans and doing a classic "-blah +blah" then they can easily win just off synergy ad experience alone. I think simple realized this when he decided not to leave and join SK.

1. TSM was second after fnatic just for 1 month (NICEEEEE) when fnatic was dominating half of the year or longer 2. When SK had an era astralis were mostly on position 6-8 (SK era was in 2016, not 17 of course) Some blind fans here

You obviously need to win the Major to truly create an "era", but if they do win it and keep on winning most of the events following that, they will have one of the most dominant years I can remember of.

It isn't fact, it's your own opinion. You can lay as many arguments as you'd like on the table, it doesn't mean they had one. Clearly you've only been watching CS:GO for about a year, which means you do not understand why only NiP and fnatic are credited with having one. You may try again, however.

just look the results between 2016-2017, and the time that they were top1. as i said, whining wont change the fact that sk had an era, and by the way, its better than nip era 1- fnatic 2-lg/sk 3- nip /closed

"results" NiP was dominant and winning everything for two years "consistently". fnatic did exactly the same for one and a half years "consistently". LG/SK's only redeeming result was the consecutive CS:GO Major championships, which they fell off after winning said Major. NiP won all three $250,000 tournaments in 2016 and SK struggled like crazy in 2017, they were not even number 1 consistently... They had a stint with felps, then didn't. They had a stint with boltz, then didn't... See the difference? It isn't "era-defining" dominance, it's just being the best team in the world for a short while, no consistency of dominance whatsoever. They were on their way to accrue one when they had won six tournaments in a row in 2017, but then they booted felps and couldn't do anything, going out in groups and the like. Some "era", right? There is no "fact" SK has an era because it wasn't breaking records of being dominant for a year plus like the previous iterations, it's fanaticism by Brazilian trolls on HLTV and remains so. The fact that you want me to look at results when you deny the ones that prove there was no era astounds me.

You don't need to win a Major to have an era, you just have to win all or almost all tournaments you attend during 6+ months.

It's more like over a year. NiP was 2 years, fnatic was 1.5 years. LG/SK were only slightly dominant on and off for around two years, but lacked any consistency.

It's people throwing the term around illogically just to satiate their own egos. They are without a doubt the best team in the world and if they can keep this form up for the next year and more, then they will have "era-defining" CS:GO dominance. Fanaticism is a wonderful thing, but it's removed of all logic.

I wouldn't go that far as Brazilians are notoriously famous for how much passion they have in their fans. It's a beautiful thing, it's just a shame it shrouds logical to satisfy bias overall.

Who cares about era? That is talk of someone who lives in the past. "My team is doodoo now but they were good one day" Astralis core roster is tier 1 since 2014-2015. 4 years in a row. No one did that. And Astralis did not sold out to "international rosters" like Faze and miBR. NiP era - tier 3 tops now fnatic era - tier 3 tops now LG/SK era - tier 2 tops now Keep living in the past while we win in the present.

4 year in a row tier-1 team? so fnatic still tier-1 team by your logic, astralis in end of 2017 and to april 2018, wasnt tier-1 team all team have up and downs fnatic and astralis 2 most stable teams in cs history, but the topic of discussion is not present it's past, so why you are even visit here?

sk had era because they extended their performance till december after those 5 wins. they won 3 big events after that. sk failed to do that on 2016. thats why they didn't had era on 2016 becasue they failed to win any events for 8 months after cologne major.

don't get me wrong I'm not denying anything sk achived in 2017, clear #1 but my point was in 2016... people were all the time like sk #1 sk this sk that, well let me tell you after sk won first major they got knocked out in the very next event at the group stage by tyloo, liquid also choked as fuck(partially vp too on both majors).. so once again I'm not saying sk didn't win those two majors they did but not in the fashion which everyone thinks, also a little example SK won 3 250k+ events in 2016(2/3 being majors)= #1 Nip won 3 250k+ events but failed to qualify for the major=#15(or smth) There were 10 teams which won at least one 250k+ event in 2016

thats why sk didn't have era in 2016. but if they won 4-5 events in 2016 after cologne, they would have era in 2016. but they didn't , hence no era. they just won 2 majors, that all.
2018-08-11 16:32
only fnatic and nip had eras
2018-08-09 14:22
Agreed they play well in patch and lose to unexpected teams like faze and some other. They r good n boring team who can dominate any team on their day but wont call em en era Like fnatic or nip had Era has to be dominating throughout rather in some tournaments and then losing again.
2018-08-10 23:10
yet they r the best team ever ;D
2018-08-10 23:14
GeT_RiGhT one of the legends of CSGO,last time signed contract with NiP 2016 so time is ticking(maybe we will se nip without him) but its worst decision that NiP can made, last time we seen GeT_RiGhT on minor, F0rest and he had so much impact on win, maybe GeT_RiGhT will be back in good form becuse of Major hype, dont underestimate him, he will be BEST once again. #GoD_RiGhT
