Why Astralis is boring.
 | 
Poland OkayAlright 
Cause perfection is boring. You literally just watch robots, they don't even have their storylines. Only Magisk seem actually happy to win a fucking major.. Glaive is like "Oh yeah cool. Major. Thanks. See you next tournament." How is that fun? You don't have memorable moments because Astralis doesn't allow it to happen, we don't have storylines because Astralis is a team created to win, not to feel, we don't even have the emotions of close rounds, breaking enemy's economy, we just don't have feelings. Look. I will admit it, Astralis was deffo the best team in the tourney way above any other team, but.. that's what makes it boring, everyone expected it and Im pretty sure no one apart from Astralis fans enjoyed the final.. Like congrats on winning it, but I am dissapointed, something that was supposed to be a beautiful celebration of the biggest tournament in a year was just killed... We commit to everything cause of its flaws and we enjoy watching how people overcome them. Astralis is just too perfect to enjoy...

And Im not denying it's an era or NaVi didn't show up. Astralis just didn't let this final to be interesting.
2018-09-23 21:50
Seriously...? I agree it's more exciting with closer matches. I think Astralis play beautiful, entertaining and tactical CS, where it's not just about hitting crazy shots, but also about outsmarting your opponent. The other teams just have to step up...! And I'm sure they will... Astralis will be countered eventually. Just not today.

How the fuck are you supposed to step up when there are 2 flashes, 1 molly and an HE flying your way and you're dead in the next 6 seconds because: - 15 molly damage - 30 molly damage - 70 gla1ve through smoek damage

No. I said earlier I dont care who wins cause there is no polish teams to cheer for. I just want a good show, not a total wipeout every tourney for half a year
2018-09-24 11:36
I agree. That's why I want the other teams to step up. The general level of CS doesn't have to be WORSE to be more entertaining.

The level of cs has to be worse. If everyone was so good it would always end with 4v5 saves and no clutch attemps
2018-09-24 13:35
no? astralis make 3v5s work. but okay you talk shit. probably because every polish dude does

idk man for you its boring for me it's the most beautiful counter strike I've ever seen. The synergy between every single player, the coordinated nades, the complete and utter outplaying of the enemy. Navi had no fucking idea what Astralis where doing sometimes. oh yeah and also... absolutely destroying s1mple, hate that cocky prick, wow yeah you have amazing aim because you played for 16.000 hours. GJ man, now try to change a car tire and you can't do it because the only thing you know is counter strike in your life. rant over

The final was boring this was possibly the first final that after 1 map I didn't even bother watching the rest. Its not even that my own teams didn't make it, its more so that they (astralis) play cs very well that it's not as flashy and eye catching as it was before. Even the crowd wasn't as loud as it could have been for a major.

2018-09-23 22:03

Yes. But there was a storyline, fnatic was so hated and NiP was there to stop them. And fnatic not caring was the best end to the story lines, villain just getting what he wants and laughing us all off
2018-09-23 22:05
you keep talking about lack of storylines but there were plenty astralis is pretty hated as well so i guess thats the exact same thing as "villain winning it all"

2018-09-23 21:55
i agree. they have no personality. i mean Fnatic were hated cuz they were hateable, but at least that gave you a reason to watch. same with SK/LG/MIBR. but these guys are just boring.

C9 to be first NA team to win major, ghosting crowd, hate towards SK, that last map of the final, skadoodle's interview. Oh yeah... London one? Astralis was good.

2018-09-23 22:12
Dude, if every team played like Astralis it would be even more dull and boring. I mean they play to get the most reward for the least risk. After 6 years grenade mechanics and strategy is being used to its full potential and yet cs is more Boring than ever. I long for a return to 1.6 where smokes were see through and you could only deal with big players or clear positions with skill and aim and game sense. (Games sense doesn't = strategy). My favourite in 1.6 was watching huge spray downs and raw aim from amazing stars like forest and neo. Even in csgo before this era, the skilled were rewarded as there was always a hole to exploit or an amazing force up play to tilt the tide in one teams favour. Yet in Astralis all I see is 1 kill and fall back, they do their role and nothing more. In 1.6 they would have been nothing because you had to balance aim and aggression and pace and defensiveness with the risk that they all carried and yet in Astralis they do this with no risk. And risk is what makes the game exciting, a sneaky snap play that we all so dearly miss or fer killing 1 and pushing onwards to finish the round and crush their opponents with nothing else to give. This risk and reward is what makes the game interesting and why Astralis is so boring, there are no crazy force ups like navi or old g2/envy, it is just a smoke that stops any chance of a big play or a grenade stack or Molotov that stops players from getting those 4 man spray downs or solo holds that we miss from 1.6 and the early days of cs. Is Astralis the best team? Yes. But only now when we see counter strike played at its most efficient do we miss the gun duels and huge moments of 1.6 that could be simply avoided with a modern csgo smoke.
2018-09-23 22:27

But At least with fanatic they actually made great plays and interesting games, even if they were 1 sided. look at Astralis they rarely get many over 3 kills in a round because they get a kill and fall back which is even more boring than fnatics dominance

IF your team, or a team you cheer for dominate a game or even a final, im pretty sure you will be happy, and the opponents wont. its the name of the game. you are happy when your team win and sad when the others win. Astralis is not surposed to play worse than they do, just to make the match more exciting. Other teams should step up their game, so they can compete. What you seek is a close finale, but thats not Astralis fault, that it wasnt.

2018-09-23 22:15
I agree that seeing a team struggle to win is very enjoyable, but seeing a team utterly dominate any opposition is also great to watch, it's just a different experience. I enjoyed that even though I'm not an Astralis fan. It was great CS, I think this team has achieved the most complete form of CS so far. If other teams don't step up their game they'll keep getting crushed. As for one-sided matches, it's not the job of competitors to make matches close, on the contrary, every opponent wants to dominate their opponent so that there's no chance for them to come back and win it. People seem to forget that watching exciting close games is just a side-effect of competition, not the goal, and it has never been the goal. Broadcasters and viewers made it their hope, but it's their hope alone, the competitors always had one goal: to crush everyone else regardless of how it looks, if people enjoy it, fine, if they don't it's also fine, they want victories, they want to be the best, that's all they train for, it's not their duty to make it interesting to watch. In any case, it's certainly not the team dominating which is to blame for the kind of experience being provided, if anyone would be to blame it's their opponents for not being able to keep up. Although personally I wouldn't blame anyone, they all give their best and we get to enjoy their performance for free, there's not much to blame for.
2018-09-23 22:10
Agree. On this level, giving the opponent a littlefinger they will take the arm... And Astralis has thrown alot away in the "choke"days...

I agree with this post, but I also think a certain amount of blame has to be put on the other teams for not delivering. Like I get it, Astralis are a really formidable opponent, but csgo is not a game wherein any opponent is absolutely "unbeatable". But yeah, I do agree. Astralis play some of the most beautiful cs I've seen which makes it so boring in a way. I would much rather watch really messy CS full of misplays that lead to clutches, close games or even memorable fuckups than watching a team outplay other teams to the extent astralis does. It is boring because in a way you already know that before a tournament has even started that Astralis are going to win (or at least get to finals) so you don't even bother watching because there's no level of unpredictability. I do hope all the other top teams, or teams that are in the top 10 put in hours to at least bridge the gap between themselves and astralis if not be able to beat astralis in the near future because it's woeful how one sided these tournaments are

I don't think astralis is to blame here.. teams should've prepared better I guess. Did you not see astralis vs NiP? It was great game imo. Astralis is little too perfect which makes them a bit boring but teams like navi faze should've done better. They failed to impress us rather than astralis. And yes I'm Faze and navi fan.

Am I blaming them? I just said. They are fucking boring. And it throws me away from watching the tournaments
2018-09-24 07:43
Just imagine if s1mple performed better. Astralis had to fight their way to win which would've given us some great highlight plays from astralis as well. Unfortunately neither NiKo/GuardiaN or s1mple managed to show up against astralis.

i get where you're comming from but i think it's entertaining to watch other team look like silvers and i can't help to laugh when they pull out something absurd like the usp round on overpass, but they aren't perfect they have showed cracks throughout the major.

If that is fun for you then you are just and Astralis fan, if it was fnatic smashing FaZe or anything else you WOULD be bored
2018-09-24 13:36
The other teams are so weak that cant beat 5 bots
2018-09-24 12:31
blaming the winner bcs they're too good ? wtf is this logical ? have u seen SKT's era in LoL competive ?
2018-09-24 12:43
it's boring because they dont give a chance for everyone, they always destroy enemy, it's beautiful cs. but don't have emotion

''Glaive is like "Oh yeah cool. Major. Thanks. See you next tournament." Lmao'd at this. I disagree on anyone but Astralis fans liking it, though. My boys NiP should've went to playoffs, but of course - nope. I think I became upset and just wanted other teams to be wiped out by Astralis, which actually happened, but I found myself enjoying them completely outplaying everyone, it was just... beautiful CS. Sure, not that exciting, but a pleasure to the eye.

+1 Btw I saw that comment of yours while reading comments section of an youtube video.
2018-09-24 14:21
wtf is this? storyline? wtf is this? so u want something like he grew up in the streets of Uganda, his parents died immediately after his birth, a pack of dogs brought him up, he ate his right leg to survive, once he found out about cs he liked and he became a champion and built in his hometown cyber school? all this ppl saying boring are hypocrits, u just mad cos your fav teams cant show good cs and Astralis just obliterated every other "pro" team who almost looked like newbies vs them. and now its robots and boring and cs is dying, dead gaem, cheaters, luckers etc etc blablabla. It was cool to see a team performing so good so good so opponents cant do anything, they just not ready for their lvl. but its somehow boring. FU.

No Im not mad I dont give a flying fuck who wins, polish cs will get on tier 1 in like half a year so I have some time to just enjoy good cs and then Astralis comes outta nowhere fucks everyone 2:0 with each game being like 16:8 and you tell me to enjoy that? Dude get a fucking grip. Every major had a fun storyline, what does Astralis have? "We are completely normal and boring to the core group of 5 guys who dont talk to anyone becuz we would show too much of our personality. Like come the fuck on, literally no one is likeable or hateable in Astralis.
2018-09-24 17:36
Each and everyone of those players has a huge storyline. So either you're ignorant and just don't know the stories of other countries' teams or you're stubborn and don't WANT to know. Try using your time checking some background stories instead of spreading bad vibes on HLTV...

I follow Astralis since the core have been in Dignitas, it's great to see the team you support that long have that amount of success. But wait a few months and the other teams will step up aswell.

+1 I have enjoyed to watch C9 the major before, because it was much more exciting to watch. But yesterday it was like "oh major final" Astralis will win it easily....

I get your point that an all dominating team can be boring, but what you have to understand is that Astralis is playing the absolute best CS, maybe ever. It may not look as flashy as some other teams, but that does not make it easier or any less enjoyable. At least not to me. I completely understand that for the neutral viewer,, you want the close games, of course. But I don't understand the premise that it is Astralis being boring. They are lightyears ahead of everybody else, what do you want them to do? Let Device play blindfolded? Make Magisk the igl? Rotate zonic in every now and then? The problem is not Astralis being "too good" it is the other teams not being good enough. Imagine the level of CS if there were some teams at the same level as them...

Nothing will beat Boston. The first na major on na soil was just amazing. And the games were interesting and intense

That's bias towards NA cs, it was a good major not becuz na won. It was fun to watch even tho it was a fluke so I dont care who wins, just make it enjoyable

the playoff matches were so one sided and the grand final was the most underwhelming thing in this entire major. Terrible crowd, tech issues, delays. One of the worst majors i have seen

It's not their fault no one else works hard enough to be on their level, blame the rest of the teams.
2018-09-24 17:58
Astralis is playing the most beatiful CS I have ever seen. Do not blame Astralis, blame the rest of the teams that are a couple of steps behind them. I see your point, but it is not Astralis fault or a consequence caused by them. Sports, eSports and CSGO are constantly involved in an evolution. This should rise the level of the scene because other teams are now forced to improve themselves if they want to beat this super team.
