Astralis has lost focus?
2018-12-10 10:34
They're obviously done for the year, they already reached their goal for this year, I have a really hard time thinking they'll try hard through blast, they'll probably save up for the maj0r

2018-12-10 10:42

No, also at IEM Chicago and ECS.
2018-12-10 10:46
Well I can make a valid point that astralis bombed out of the major a long time ago with 0.90 rating, but that was long in the past :P

Oh, and i didn't mean ECS. Pretty sure they weren't in that tournament. I meant New York where they went out in quarters aswell. Their results just haven't been very good lately. In quite a slump.
2018-12-10 10:48
Meh quarters are better than group stage exit atleast :D

True, but for a superteam like Navi, they should be able to do better.
2018-12-10 10:50
yy, liquid totally outplayed navi though, very well played from them, when they saw s1mple on 1 site they ran to the other cus they know s1mple and electronic plays on the same site(No fking idea why) so they simply rotated cus they know they can out aim Edward and zeus. Also they knew when s1mple would rotate so they rotate back to the other site to face electronic alone, they simply mind-gamed the fuck out of them.

+1 Don't understand why S1mple and Electronic plays on different sites. And then sometimes Edward plays alone on B? Doesn't make any sense to me.
2018-12-10 10:52
I mean, sure, have some faith in your teammates, but when u face a team like liquid that have all 5 players with firepower, atleast split s1mple and electronic up, and for sure never let Edward play alone on a site. there's no way he'd win an aim duel vs any of the liquid players

+1 Taco ran in to B like 5 rounds in a row, outaimed Edward and Zeus and then it was just a save for Navi. Seemed way too ez.
2018-12-10 10:55
I mean whose idea is it with these setups? If even ppl who's watching can notice those huge mistakes within a round, they must surely have an idea? no?

The weird thing was that they just didn't change it up, like no matter how many rounds they lost, the same thing just happened. Nitr0 went for timing shots from T-spawn, if he got it they rushed B and won the round. If he didn't Taco wen't out on site and got atleast 1 kill no matter what. They just didn't seem to care about it.
2018-12-10 11:01
Well they'll make me disappointed and blow out of blast too so fml xDD

"greatest era of all time" meh. "irrelevant event" +1
2018-12-10 10:52
Hm, greatest idk, there's not really much of opposition vs astralis. A great era is when there are like 10 teams who can compete, but there's still this 1 team who ends up winning, but has a kryptonite. example : fnatics era, Tsm was their kryptonite, that was the definition of a great era of cs. Although I'd definitely give astralis the upperhand when it comes to BEST era along with Nip :P

Fair enough. But there has never been 10 teams who can actually compete though.
2018-12-10 10:54
Naaa thats true but fnatics era there was still the top teams, vp, nip, SK started showing up(Kaboom?) Envy, TSM, was prolly some more teams but yah :D

Nobody will beat astralis unless this motherfuckers remove their nvidia settings

Let us just appreciate, that we currently have two teams; Team Liquid and Astralis, whom are respectively fighting/defending the spot as #1. Astralis have had a phenomenal 2018 with multiple tournaments won - and with Team Liquid with an insane amount of #2 spots. Obviously Astralis will drop eventually, unless they make some new innovative tactics. Astralis already have an 'era' - not debatable - but I'm guessing they will try their best to win the major at Katowich and become B2B major winners. Obviously teams like NaVi, MIBR and FaZe are contenders as well - and has a decent shot at winning against TL and Astralis in a BO1. But in a BO3 or BO5 - not a chance. They are simply not consistent enough. MIBR have been very close, to deny Astralis a win - but comes short. NaVi rely way too much on raw skills and Simple performing in godlike mode. FaZe needs to either drop karrigan or make him coach, to make room for someone better - or even better, buy a new IGL to free up NiKo. If the rumors about FaZe + simple are true - they will indeed be a brutal team. Respect to Team Liquid for keeping the pressure on Astralis. Too bad they seem to choke in the finals. Great games to watch, when they get matched up.
