Astralis won't win major

I'm only saying this so I can see Renegades winning the whole thing like Gambit. Always interesting to see a unexpected teams wins, it's what keeps the game alive unlike how fnatic won 3 majors in a row before .
2019-02-22 00:33
Vitality.
2019-02-22 00:35
Nip beat astralis in the semis while breaking the nuke streak. and liquid beat Navi again. Liquid 2-0 nip both in OT rounds. Liquid go on to never lose a map again for the rest of existence. Csgo dies in August
2019-02-22 00:51
nice future lmao Liquid have great chances to win this major tbh

in the semis of this major bro edit: he's predicting the future :P
2019-02-22 01:04
They beat them on mirage in the previous major, so why not?
2019-02-22 01:18
Would be surely more exciting if someone other than Astralis would win it this time, but I don't think that someone can really be that dangerous for them. It seems to be impossible to defeat them. Time will tell I guess.
2019-02-22 00:35
Renegades almost won if they didn't choke 2md half nuke
2019-02-22 00:37
Score was 9-6 way too close to be considered a choke
2019-02-22 00:38
10-0 and the 3rd map continues to be a stomp..
2019-02-22 00:38
You said 2nd half nuke the score was 9-6 and rng was on the t side that isnt a choke by any definition of the word That is just the best ct side team in the world playing on the most ct sided map in the game
2019-02-22 00:42
I think u mean AUG power
2019-02-22 00:43
Yes of course because the danish core totally hasnt done that 50+ times before
2019-02-22 00:44
0-10 vs Astralis CT on Nuke has nothing to do with a choke.
2019-02-22 00:43
So the first map is consider a choke?
2019-02-22 00:45
No. Just a weak T-side from Astralis.
2019-02-22 07:42
Astralis fucking dominate nuke. Wasn't a choke, best team in the world on their best map.
2019-02-22 00:44
I agree but I guess Renegades were playing at their peak too
2019-02-22 00:46
Renegades did well, respect to them. I guess no one expected that. They proofed that they are worthy to stay at the top. But they only won on OT on Mirage, a weaker map for Astralis. Maybe they can do even more, I am excited to find out.
2019-02-22 00:50
If they don't go to semis I'm sad
2019-02-22 00:54
With Faze, Mibr, G2 and other teams playing not how they should right now, they have a good chance of doing so. They convinced me way more than any other team, expect maybe Vitality. They looked also strong. Renegades will surely move on. And If they avoid Astralis or Liquid, they can make it to Semis. Would be a great story for them.
2019-02-22 00:57
i actually do believe Renegades will beat Liquid if they do come across each other. The fact that Liquid made mistakes against Na'vi is enough to prove it
2019-02-22 01:09
Liquid could definitely do it
2019-02-22 00:43
They could, but a single win on that IBP tournament is not enough to convince me. They looked not that great, even with that 3:0 win. Navi nearly won out Mirage, and Nip nearly got Overpass. Avangar also tested them a bit. But yes, Liquid would be the best bet if you look at the other teams. Vitality with ZywOo would crumble I think. And Renegades won Mirage out, but Astralis came back even stronger. and yea, who else is there? Navi will not win against then, no way.

They look pretty average at the moment, haven't seem the dominance astralis showed but they got the easier bracket of course with complexity,c9,renegades
2019-02-22 01:57
I think Liquid look really strong atm
2019-02-22 08:45
Liquid could, i think theyre the only team rn who can square up to astralis consistently

AVANGAR Jame will save us all
2019-02-22 00:38
Inb4 avangar wins major, Jame gets MVP and gets picked up for Navi, s1mple heads to Faze
2019-02-22 00:40
it would be really good but the only thing i can say is that jame wont leave no matter what, especially for navi
2019-02-22 00:42
Maybe, Navi and Faze destroys most of the teams out there by taking a player out
2019-02-22 00:52
jame is a smart guy and he most likely wont leave a well stacked team hes been playing with for like 2 years for inconsistent team with 2 bots and money isnt the problem i guess, avangar is already a pretty rich org and after this major it will get even more sponsors
2019-02-22 01:01
Yeah, I would love to see Avangar win it all. Very underrated team, I think tomorrow's match against Na'Vi will be close but Avangar will best them

Expected classic toxic rhetoric, got friendly, calm thread. Respect. On another note: I personally think there is a big chance Astralis wont win, but i think it would require a team like Liquid to beat them.
2019-02-22 00:42
No hate on Astralis or anything, they represent the old fnatic chemistry with gla1ve igl but it's kinda cool to see a underdog team to win it Not liquid tho, seeding will probably give them a hard time

I personally think Liquid will win it, but there's also a chance that a dark horse team like Vitality or Renegades could pull off a run similar to C9 at Boston and end up winning it too.
2019-02-22 00:45
I wouldn't compare Vitality to any team, honestly they rely on Zywoo or Apex too much BUT yeah, if Liquid can beat Astralis. They can take it
2019-02-22 00:48
Nope. Vitality is too bad at closing out games and C9 lacks strategical depth. There is no team right now except maybe MIBR that could upset.
2019-02-22 01:09
Anything can happen in the major my friend

Don't think C9 has any chance to win it. Just used C9's run to winning the Boston Major as a comparison. Renegades is giving me serious 2018 C9 vibes right now, definitely much less firepower but they're similar in that Renegades beats teams they aren't supposed to beat on paper and pretty convincingly at that. Vitality I do kind of agree with, but if they can figure out how to better close out games I'd say they're a serious threat.
2019-02-22 01:40
Am I retarded or fnatic haven't won 3 majors in a row?
2019-02-22 00:48
I don't remember, was it just 2 majors in a row?
2019-02-22 00:53
Yeah Katowice 2015, Cologne 2015 First one was Dreamhack 2013

"fnatic won 3 majors in a row before" ???????????????????????? Also, I still don't get it wssup with all the fnatic hate but if you looked at them objectively you'd actually see that they were the ones which kept some proper ranking structure, once they fell off you had 10 teams claiming to be #1 team at one point or another for 2 years
2019-02-22 00:53
1. I wasn't hating on fnatic 2. #34

Astralis seems iffy right now. 40% Astralis 35% Liquid 15% NaVi 7% Renegades 3% Vitality/G2/MiBR
2019-02-22 01:13
0,0001% Ninjas in Pyjamas
2019-02-22 01:21
mibr or navi gonna take it
2019-02-22 01:43
Mibr is a galaxy brain take after how they've been performing
2019-02-22 01:52
but everything can happen, we don't know how they will play the maps, they plyed 2 inferno and 1 mirage, teams not know about them, and can be a advantage, i just don't see them winning astralis rn
