Blast Istanbul vs ESL One NY
 | 
Norway EaZy_4_NiKo 
Why arent Astralis playing in NY instead of Istanbul along with the other top teams? The Grand slam is still up for grabs and only ESL and Dreamhack Masters events count. Were talking about 1million dollars here, HELLO??

+1, people hyping it up simply because Astralis is going. ESL NY is obviously the better and more prestigious event.
2018-09-25 09:05
Reason Astralis is going to Turkey for Blast Pro instead of ESL New York, Faze or Navi can atleast have chance to win something.

Aah didnt know. But this means they have one less shot at the grand slam. If they had a choice they would 100% go to NY.

Yea true but faze are back down to 2, If they win NY then it's 3 but yea quite risky regardless

Even still, NY has more top teams than blast, they'd have chosen to go there.

You're probably right, NY also has more prestige.

Really??? Do you believe it though? Hard to believe when were talking about a million dollars, the highest payout BY FAR in CS history. Has some prestige as well imo

Then what is? The major is over and if I were them I would go for it 100%
2018-09-25 08:56
Pretty sure it's because it's a Refrsh event. And also, Device's stomach hurts when they take long flights, as he said when they went to ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals.

Thats too bad. If FaZe wins this they just need one more to win the million dollars.
2018-09-25 08:28
You forgot then, FaZe can't win anymore.

What a well thought valid point you made there. Fucking idiot FaZe has just as much chance of winning as Liquid and NaVi

Answer my goddamn question then. Youre only looking like a retard when you talk about being a superior human and cant even stick to the point when asked a question. Fucking Danes with devices dick in their mouths.
2018-09-25 08:40
Okay. 1. I already answered your fucking question, Karrigan is dogshit. 2. I don't actually have Device's dick in my mouth, but boy do i wish i had.

1. Its not a valid point, teams win tournaments all the time with some players disappearing more than others. If you cant see that then youre just as stupid as we superior Scandinavians think Danish people are. 2. Yeah pretty obvious, thank you for confirming.
2018-09-25 08:47
Karrigan will not be able to get 10 frags, and since NiKo is IGL'ing, he will also not be able to focus on his game as much as he normally could.

Omfg my point is that there is no way of you knowing that. You must be a wealthy man being able to see the future.

I have no money. I bought the newest skins in Fortnite, but i can still see the future.

1. Device's stomach problems. To much travel time to New York which results in unnecessary stress which literally is the cause of his illness. 2. Rfrsh. I don't think astralis is in anyway forced to attend BPS but rfrsh is probably also a factor in them going to BPS. Also, i think Astralis quite enjoy the unique format. 3. Preparation time. Astralis often skip events to gain more preparation time. As i mentioned before, BPS uses a unique format. A format which i would say is a lot more chill for the teams. And with the chill format they're probably not compelled to use all of their strats at this event. Also, BPS was originally on a different day which probably fitted better into their schedule.

Totally get that but if I were them I would go for the million dollars 100%, especially now that the major is over. I mean what if FaZe wins in NY Edit: The grand slam will be by far the highest payout in CS history, its the ultimate prize to win alongside a major imo

Astralis already commented on the grand slam. They don't priorities it. If they get it, awesome, but their goal is to win tournaments. Also, another intense event already wouldn't be good for device's health. I don't really think they'd wanna risk device missing 2 events in denmark again this year.

Money isn't a problem for top teams. The astralis players already got an estimate of 355k USD each just from prize money this year. Thats without counting salaries which usually is way above average.

pretty sure Astralis has a contract to play at Blast events, since the first was in Denmark and they paid Ast to play there for publicity Otherwise theres no reason to not play ESL NY, the prestige for the grand slam is so big
