astralis boring,
 | 
United States MAKEOUTHILL 
i are think that they are the best team in the world, not denying that, but only because of their boring style. and you know what? thats the way cs should be player. but its boring. fnatic era was interesting af because of their extreme disrespecting style, they didnt care, it was fun to watch. same goes for NiP era, comebacks every single game, it was so intense watching them comeback from scores like 15:5 or something like that. SK era, same as fnatic, they did whatever they wanted, unstopable af but astralis is just.... boring.

Overall you still can see advantage in playing like a twat over playing shy like astralis. TyLoo/North for example, both made astralis choke bad times, but astralis has too much experience with their passive gameplay. Ofc people loved fnatic/nip/sk era because that shit was rapid Astralis doesn't have their era yet, after Major i think we can say that.
2018-09-02 13:00
No era yet? Won 6 out of the last 10 events, including 2 second places. There's no denying that it's definetly an Astralis era. However, not as dominant as previous eras we've seen.
2018-09-18 12:07
This topic is really 50/50 and any point can be proven right. I personally think that for a era, they have to make something no one has ever done (for example first 16-0 at Major) and is just amazing. They have only one major if i'm not mistaken, so only the 16-0 at Major makes them shine. It might sound fanboy, but whatever. Compare this, to NiP era. NiP have made something a lot of teams dream to do. Yes they have only one major, but the fact that they've dominated cs day in and day out, made them have a era. Fnatic had a era, 3x Major. If i'm not mistaken, that makes them the best cs team in terms of achievements. SK is a bit 50/50, but they were DOMINATING made them have a era. Astralis are a good team, but the quality is average at most. I think if they can get a major and show dominance, we can talk about era. but atm i think they can be talked as the 16-0 Major makers

i dont know how outplaying opponents with brain not aim is boring? maybe you have to have +50 iq to find that interresting. i dont know. but i always thought sk era and fnatic era were boring because they just played. didnt try to outplay the enemies because they were just better. Astralis outplays every enemy and make them look like bots,

Dominance feels boring but doesn't change the fact that Astralis is best tactical team in history /close
2018-09-02 13:01
ez when you can see thru walls also fnatic and sk did the same shit when they were on top of their "gamesense".
2018-09-18 13:28
So now its apparently boring, not to do stupid 0 IQ shit that works 1 out of 10. Got ya

Astralis is not the best team in the world, North is.

Astralis is THE definition of clean cs. They play by the book and people say its boring, this is OG cs and its working, dont cry because they dont kill players everyround with a jumping no scope shot with an awp...
2018-09-02 13:03
They are only top 1 because all the good teams are not doing good
2018-09-18 11:50
True, I've been saying this, but hey people will disagree with no arguments
2018-09-18 11:58
I think it always felt that others teams didn't do well, when one team was dominent, NIP era, fnatic era and SK era were same, people were saying same shit. :D
2018-09-18 13:24
In fnatic era the teams actually did do well, SK maybe not so much, NiP ye
2018-09-18 13:25
Only in some periods of times, for example they had like 7-0 tournament wins streak, before that, they little bit choked but before that they were dominent as fuck, and no team could challenge them. I think, its not about there are no good team, in my opinion this teams were and are way ahead of their time, like NIP was.

They play strategical and tactical way of counter-strike, a way many teams have problems to surprass. Without that ''boring'' style of counter-strike they would have not won so many events and marked their way to top of the counter-strike world.

who dafuq wants to see Astralis in the finals i much rather see Nip, Navi, Faze, Fnatic or Mousesports. Especially when Nip and Fnatic are playing for homeground.
2018-09-02 13:06
This again... Boring CS = clever CS. If you don't take any unnecessary risks, you have a bigger chance of winning. I am entertained by the mere fact that they don't make mistakes. That is very satisfying to witness.
2018-09-02 13:09
he admitted that it is clever cs, but its just so fkn boring to watch them
2018-09-18 09:54
Disagree. The higher the level of strats/play is, the more entertaining it is to watch, imo.
2018-09-18 16:54

2018-09-20 15:00
Astralis isn’t ‘perfect’, spotting their mistakes isn’t a hard thing to do, it happens a lot actually but what makes Astralis better than other T1 teams is how they deal with their mistakes. Astralis’ ability to recognize what mistakes they made and to adjust to that in mid/late-round situations is what seperates them from the rest
2018-09-18 11:50
Of course they're not perfect. When I say they don't make mistakes, it's obviously an exaggeration. They just make much less mistakes than other teams, or as you say, they are better at dealing with them – which I'd agree with you fully on.
2018-09-18 16:53
Astralis is one of the reasons why CS is dead
2018-09-02 13:16
like ex6 and G2
2018-09-16 18:36
Nope It's interesting to watch Because there people experience real emotions in spite of losing And do not sit in front of the monitors like a robots.
2018-09-17 17:46
sure, couldn't get his team to close the game on 15-7, raw peeks with no flash, pushes underground on D2 every round on CT and getting fucked... Sure there were emotions, disappointment mostly
2018-09-17 19:33
Of course it's sad Sometimes I did not understand what they were doing on the map But as for a young team - These are standard attempts to find a style of play and to check some play-things. And 1) None of the G2 players said that they are 100% ready for the major. 2) Ex6TenZ said that for a complete reconstruction of the team it will take much more time than 4 months.
2018-09-18 09:47
nt ex6
2018-09-18 13:45
Astralis is just proof that teamplay > individual skill. Why depend on your players having to step up every god damn round, why depend on players getting 3-4 kills each round when you don't have to? That your find their playstyle boring is the true credit to the dominance and talent on this team. You're really good at something when you make it look boring and simple.

At this point it isnt even a meme anymore, yes they are the best team in the world by far, but their playstyle is so fucking boring. They never take risks to make flashy plays or anything, even though I always hated fnatic it was fun to watch them in 2015. Taking so much risks, flashiest plays ever etc, astralis is just sooo boring.
2018-09-18 09:53

I agree. This is how any team based game should be played. Not just raw firepower. Sadly I am a Silver elite player and rarely find anyone to queue with. So I mainly have to play lurker to get some sort of gameplay. "Rush B don't stop" isn't working as long as you meet someone who know their nades
2018-09-18 11:47
Yupp I know they win because of that, but I said theyre BORING, never said that they were bad or anything.

Its okay. They don't play to please you or make you smile. They play to win trophies
2018-09-18 10:00
the meta developed into this. if you put the same astralis back in 2015 theyd still win because they learned how to deal with those "no respect" plays. in fact thats why fnatic are struggling so much. to be the best in 2015 meant to be able to counter this playstyle and now that essentially every team has learned that this playstyle is obsolete.

Nice analysis. The problem with the "chaos gameplay" that some team still try to do (like Fnatic) is that they don't got good enough support. Someone with covering smokes, supportive flash and supressing fire to slow down rotations
2018-09-18 11:44
the reason fnatic struggles is their lack of aimbot usage
2018-09-18 13:32
If you find Astralis boring to watch, sorry cs isn't for you maybe you should try cod or any of the other mongo games in the genre

I guess none of you here ever watched CS 1.6 Just imagine one of the craziest rounds in 1.6 being mTw forcebuying 2 scouts on CT train and winning the round over SK in WCG. That was so rare to see and so well done. In today's CS, there is 2-3 eco upsets and 1 eco ace in just about any game and no one bats an eye. Ofcourse its boring if you are expecting 420 revolver kills and LOLYOU movement. Cs has changed alot...
2018-09-18 11:57
They are fun to watch.....when they are getting rekt by NiP/Liquid/FaZe/Navi/North xD Honestly tho sometimes they are actually fun to watch
2018-09-18 11:57
I agree, while Astralis plays CS the "correct" way, Fnatic back in the day was always fun to watch.
2018-09-18 12:04

When fnatic played against hellraisers with extremely sloppy plays everyone complained, When a team plays in a completely opposite way of sloppiness people complain. You are just mad that your team is shit and will never be able perform individually and tactically like Astralis.

is it me or is Astralis a bit of a boring team like u see it at the end of the game "oh wow 16-0 MiBR" but u can never remember the games. can u remember a single Astralis game ? but try fnatic...u can see the team i remember a fnatic match.
2018-09-20 06:41
Every system works when everyone individually plays better than then the opponent. Astralis' style works out just because of that. They play basic cs with small margin of mistakes. Even if you know what they will do next round, you have to kill them so that's where opponents fail against them. If we tier the scene now, Astralis would be the only team in tier1 to be honest. Faze, BIG, NAVI, they all have good individual players but those teams make huge mistakes with edgy playing style from time to time. I would say Astralis' biggest rival in this major is Liquid which I think is the only team that could beat Astralis in BO3
