Who can beat Astralis?
 | 
Europe KRiSEF 
Astralis play beatiful, text-book CS. But for me, it was enough, i want back the flashy plays and not these one-sided boring finals. I want a team who can beat them, and here are my tips who can do that. 1. NiP NiP has been on the rise for quite a long time and my opinion they have the biggest chance to defeat Astralis. I think what they are missing is a real AWP-er - something that really is missing in the Swedish scene. Dennis needs to become better to challange device, which is not really easy. But i think with some adjustments Nip can beat them, whenever they play gainst them, its close, so, fingers crossed. 2. Natus Vincere Na'Vi is the second best challanger, they already did it in Cologne, but that was a GODZEUS fluke, and since then, Astralis demolished them 2x. They are seriously lacking one more hardfragging player with Edward not being the most capable and flamie lacking consistency. If they could get a great CIS player (like H0bbit, crush, idk) instead of Edward, chances are high. 3. Team Liquid Liquids cryptonite has been Astralis and the main reason is because they can shut down nitr0 really effectively, since he isn't a natural awper, he is a hybrid player. For them to beat Astralis in a bo3 they seriously need more fragging from Taco and nitr0 stepping up as an awper/or getting a new one, like Cerq or idk. 4. MIBR Tbh im not a fan of this american-brazilian lineup, i think the strength of the SK/MiBR core was their great communication, and that seems a bit off - if they could fix that, with the coaching of YNK, they could became a serious threat to Astralis - although im not sure how long will it take for them to sort comms out. 5. Others Other quick mentions: -Faze with Niko calling, if they would add ISSAA or SuNny, that would be mad firepower which could work against Astralis's more structured team. -TyLoo/ENCE/((((VP)))))- i think their chaotic playstyle could confuse Astralis, but probably only at 1 event what are your thoughts?

FaZe with NiKo as IGL was the closest team on the major to beat Astralis. A little bit more luck and we would have another history.

what really needed is more firepower, because now karrigan doesnt rally bring aníthing to the team
2018-09-30 12:51
he probably will step up and become support player
2018-09-30 12:51
+1 dont need 5 aim stars. and if they get another aim god. they will make him seem mediocre. look at rain, would be a super star in another team. sucks because in faze
2018-09-30 13:04
you cant have 5 superstars, atleast one of them always be closing the scoreboard because of the role and people will call like -XXX player HLTV warriors are stupid and need to understand that a team doesnt work just because you have 5 aimers :(

NaVi NiP FaZe only chances, but that would involve NiP starting to play with brain and with proper strats which isn't all too likely

Good post, many options like you said but thus far I don't see these teams step up. That being said, MIBR came quite close yesterday on inferno and if the CZ rush at 12-12 would've been stopped they might have taken the map and series.

16-3 with byali carry best game of my life
2018-09-30 13:36
MIBR surely can. But to beat Astralis you have at least to practice as hard or even harder than Astralis + prepare as well as them. Astralis is not playing their standard strategies only, they play the opponent and their tendencies. they pick a player apart and know what he's going to do in certain situations and therefore adapt their game to it. let's say any top 5 player is playing his ct position the same way too often and shows the same patterns over and over again in certain situations. Astralis will know about that and he's gonna eat nades all day long until he adapts.

1) mibr 2) FaZe 3) NiP NaVi and Liquid are somehow the easiest to play for Astralis.

back in the day there were only two things that could break Astralis : SK Gaming ( with TACO) & TaZ (with the VP lineup) Beating Astralis is an easy task, by just playing your game. Make your own strats to get them confused about which one should they anti-strat. Zonic does not come with a 5 TB Hard disk and an 8 GB RAM and he is the only guy who does things in the first place.
