And Im not denying it's an era or NaVi didn't show up. Astralis just didn't let this final to be interesting.
Im sad now D: Thanks Astralis
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.
watch that interview again and tell me glaive wasn't happy. what the fuck are you talking about
I loved that third map C9 vs Faze.. it's great to see emotional cs but you guys would be happier if started to understand what a team should play the game and enjoy how astralis was able to master it.. best team to ever touch the game
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.
Not true... they are insanely happy aboutthe major win... The thing is, they knew they we're the best from the start (and they are), they just needed to get the work done...
Are you looking for exciting? Wait for the blast pro i think SS will make it hard for astralis. Cuz we play better home games(in every sports)
so blame the other teams because they cant match , astralis its just doing an immense favour to the game in general by raising the bar so high above the others , a favour that you cant comprehend. i have nothing but respect for this team tbh
ASTRALIS fk 5 robots playing
Same with fnatic during their "era"
Because perfection is boring. That's a good way to put it.
Well to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a different perspective and without condemning of one's view's and by considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say.
Toxo you make no sense tbh. have a nice day, or not, idk
trueee, i hope astralis won't win iem kato, otherwise i'll quit watching pro cs.
So you're saying they shouldn't play the best they can ? xD
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.
cuz you know they gonna win every single tournament which prizepool > than 500000$
Well said, agree 100%. Reminds me of Spain in football 2008-2012. Methodical, efficient, nearly undefeatable, but boring to watch.
Maybe other teams should play better to not make it boring for you.
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
boring but beautiful kinda like classic music
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.
hey if its boring its not staged like a lot of sports these days
because they are a level above their opposition.
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.
The other teams are so weak that cant beat 5 bots
blaming the winner bcs they're too good ? wtf is this logical ? have u seen SKT's era in LoL competive ?
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.
How do you think people feel when korea wins in league everytime lul.
Btw I saw that comment of yours while reading comments section of an youtube video.
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.
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
dupreeh is only player i like from that team
I´m playing on a HP Pavillon notebook with 1050 gtx 2gb.
Since panorama UI my fps dropped from 150-180 to 80-120.
Can somebody help me with that?
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.
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.
they play much safe. Thats why Astralis is boring.
Half a year later its still boring... im sitting in a crowd and its fucked
