expected from baitzera thread
They are struggeling recently
i gonna miss SK_overrated-2 :(
teams are just as strong as any year
I think they are really strong AND the other top tier teams are slacking, creating an insane dominance
they are really that good, g1ave and zonic combo made them top i think
They are putting the hours in the game, while the others are focusing on marketing
They are very good, but overall level of cs declined horribly, literally there is Astralis, 2 levels ahead of navi/faze/Liquid,mouz and the rest of the tier 2.
No.2-no.10 are random and can beat each other on daily basis.
Teams are overpaid af, and there is too many tournaments, its natural for pros to loose motivation and interest. Doesnt matter what their results are, they know that at the end of the month, greasy paycheck is waiting for them.
I have never felt less interest towards tournaments like this year, thats why csgo is dying for me.
No competitors for top1, they are incredible etc etc glaive and xyp9x are impactful af
Something i have noticed, astralis rarely dominate strong teams, they win like 16-14/ 16-13 , take for example vs fnc, 19-17, 16-14
They simply don't take chances and play the most sound and safe CS you can play in this version of the game with extremely good individual talent. Teams will have to heavy-anti strat their game with equal or more firepower. Faze, Liquid and maybe NRG is probably the only teams atm. I can think of that which can do it on a regular basis. And I would say the problem is the game and its design. Just my opinion.
we have only one good team right now and its not because Astralis makes it look like it
I think it started with them being good while others were bad (there were no Faze, SK, Liquid nor Na'Vi), and you can see it now that they get more challenged. But yeah, they are hella good (flag/name checks out xD)
I think the new game economy has helped Astralis opponents to be a little less dominated by them. Simply put loosing team are little less in a hole than before, so they can better attempt comebacks.
Astralis best (VP bestest)
