And to add on to your point about individual skill being more enjoyable to watch. Yes i agree, but at the same time, the people who only enjoy cs because of that flashy indivudal skill, are usually people that are bad players/new players/not so experienced in cs.
And because the majority of players that play any mulitplayer game are just "casuals" - it then looks like there is alot of peolpe hating on Astralis when in reality it's just casual players who want to see flashy plays from NiKO's deagle.
However the people who understand csgo at just a decent level, it doens't have to be a high level just a 'decent', can appreciate the tactical and teambased playstyle of astralis.
And on top of that, the people who enjoy the tactics and teamwork of Astralis, usually dont comment on HLTV about it - its always the casual haters that make threads and comments!
