who can beat astralis

Build a superteam that can beat astralis. players should be able to communicate and connect with each other. In other words, build a reasonable superteam.

it's pretty tough to beat Astralis You ban Nuke -> Astralis picks Inferno and they're up 1-0 already Astralis have large map streaks on both maps

Teams need to get goo in any of these maps to counter astralis.
2019-03-03 21:42
either that or be prepared to attempt 2-1 every match vs Astralis

2019-03-04 18:11
IF cobble would be available , easy match for mibr against them. IF gla1ve stop doing fishy kills in smokes when the game is kind of difficult (like against mibr on overpass) IF they stop being lucky in situations like '1 player it is not killed and keep alive with 5 hp but he somehow manages to kill 2 enemies". they are not csgods, they just won .

2019-03-04 10:49
With this logic Fallen, Coldzera, Fer, and Taco are cs gods as well because they 2 majors plus many high ranking competitions that they won in a row.

You know shit about CS. It's not that easy to put star players in one team and give them time to make team that could beat Astralis. It's more about synergy and making better stats than Astralis actually do
2019-03-03 21:43
why u think those 5 that i wrote can't form a synergy? niko and s1mple are mature now. they can work out lmao

They can form a synergy but not synergy that could win against Astralis. It's simple. They can atleast be top10 team no more. If anyone want to break Astralis era they should work work work and work because Astralis at the moment is only one team that I could name tier1 team and maybe Na'vi but they throw vs ENCE was disgusting
2019-03-03 21:51
Liqud> navi for sure Give liquid little bit time. They have the ability to work as a 5star unit. They just have to work more, and get more confidence
2019-03-03 22:15
beleive me NAVI is better than LIQUID, liquid was kinda better with zews and taco, i think but now they are not that much + they are really new and navi have same lineup since december 2017
2019-03-03 22:22
Idc Liquid won against them consistently last year and even won here in this event. Also they dont rely on 1 player to win
2019-03-03 22:26
yeah but this was kinda unlucky game for navi, not only unlucky but they played kinda bad too, but in liquid not everyone performs at the same time, some times only naf carries and others have decent game and so is with twistzz and elige but you can not say navi<liquid right now, maybe if liquid increase their game but not now and even idc LUL
2019-03-03 22:47
liquid has beaten navj recently in a bo3 with 2-0 Also the old liquid won 2 bo3 with 2-0 against Navi. For sure I can say liquid> Navi
2019-03-03 22:58
quarter team > semis team hmmm
2019-03-04 15:08

Why are they banning cache still then? Why dont they just adjust to that, and make a perfect map pool
2019-03-03 21:43
you can afford a perma-ban map. why shouldnt they ban a map that they're not practiced. but if valve says "teams will pick the maps first, then they will ban" astralis would start to practice cache lmao

2019-03-03 21:52
if cbble comes to the pool, they would pick a map between cch and cbble and they would master one of the maps, they would perma ban the other lmao nothing would change

Astralis is already a capable cache team. But what is the point of practicing a map when you could just permaban it? Its a waste of time and effort that you could spend on the other 6 maps. And the veto will never change to pick first then ban.

Tier3/4 Olof was trash this tournemant, he is good tho Not mentioning krimz and jw, who didnt make to groups Flusha retired yesterday for some months, This team dominated years ago. And tsm won against them consistenly. Astralis is on another lvl and olf fnatic wouldnt even get double digits in a bo3

2019-03-03 21:42
No superteam could beat them, because Astralis, even with very good individuals, don't rely on that. They rely on teamplay, strategy, and preparation. As far as I know, no igl or coach can compete with the level of teamwork Astralis have. So at the end of the day, this thread seems pointless.
2019-03-03 21:43
then, form a superteam that can form synergy to beat astralis
2019-03-03 21:51
There is actually no one :D Igls? Only fallen cuz he doesnt get pressure like nitro, chrisj and other choke igls Superstars maybe coldzera and s1mple. Support? No one can keep up with xypex. No taco and no edward.. no styko or anyone I stop here cuz if you want to take down astralis you need to work the asses off to get a chance. You cant win against them with an Allstar team consistently. Cuz they will find their holes with teamwork and strats.

what? I can think of a few decent supports that could do well, for igl's it depends what team you want, but alot of igl's could work given the right pieces to work with. alot of superstars could as well.
2019-03-03 23:20
ill have to disagree, with a good amount of time and after some events i think that zews and fallen are going to be able to get closer and closer to them in time
2019-03-03 23:31
But mibr is the only one that can make it close imo. Mibr should be #2 atm

Hey, this is the same situation with Team Choko Mid, they became dominant later. Perhaps Chokequid can do the same thing.
2019-03-04 06:03
This is exactly what i'm saying dude! Liquid is still quite early in their "progress" as a team imo. It will take some time to improve immensely, for obvious reason. Which is why i'm saying it will probably take a few years to really brake that barrier and become the best team in the world consistently Also, it took the danes 5 years time to brake that curse. Liquid has not been together for nearly that long yet.

faze clan, kick either olof or rain and get a good igl. Work a million hours to astralis's 100 and maybe they win 1 map out of 3. Dang the odds are bad for other teams. But you got to keep trying. There was a time when NiP magic was real. Then there was fnatic era. Mibr (as luminosity and sk) did great for a while. Then the world thought chuck it pro cs is ez and now we have astralis that will never lose. Me like millions watching this major, predicted even before it began that Astralis wins it ezz. #FEELSBADMAN
2019-03-03 21:58
sunny to ence and give them a year to progress and they will be able to compete with astralis, they have the mentallity and that is the most important aspect. maybe mibr can also compete with a bit more time. they playstyle matches well against astralis which is why we always see close games between the two, although astralis is still a few steps ahead.
2019-03-03 21:58
if mibr adapt the style of astralis, they have a shot. otherwise you cannot beat astralis with 2016-17 strats lmao

Convince star players like NiKO that you need structure and you can't win by just relying on skill and you can easily have a team that can beat Astralis.
2019-03-03 23:29
I haven’t been watching competitive CS that much, hence the question. Last round on Train, Xyp9x waved his crosshair on those boxes at B site and if I understood right, it was because he tried to get a reaction from the crowd. - yelling -> wallbang the shit out of that box - no yelling -> ignore and keep checking other angles Is this common thing for players to do or is it considered as a ’not so cool’ cheecky move. This is not about trying to undermine the achievement of Astralis winning the Major so all you dense kids can be quiet.

Liquid: just added stew seems like they need more time and work in there teamplay and should stop losing aim duels when they peek to gain advantage. Mibr: just formed a new line up and reaching semi finals is not bad. They need time to build team chemistry and strats and can make Astralis very hard. Navi: needed a fix for months now. Picking up AdreN and Jame (IGL/awp) with removing Zeus and Edward. After this they have better chances to beat Astra. Ence: beated a broken navi and newish liquid line up still they show some promise and potential to become consistent top contenders. With those 3 teams and adding Ence would be nice competition for the top 5. Right now Astralis have free road basically by top teams constant shuffeling. Just make the right shuffles stick to it and already prepare the team up for the next major please because having good team chemistry just takes so much time even when you have the right pieces of players just take Ence as proof they grinded there ass from the bottum to the top. I didn't add Faze since i don't see them really improving fast enough them anymore or beating astralis since they all have to speak 2nd language in English which makes the communication slower then native language speaking teams.

To be honest... Liquid and MIBR seem to be a reasonable choice but they need months worth of preparation. Other teams need player swaps so they will run around a circle with same old pattern: poor performance-> player swap -> poor results explained by "we need time to understand each other" -> big event but team had not enough time to prepare propely -> poor results -> player swap
2019-03-04 02:52
Only MiBR and Liquid can do it.

I don't think you need a super team to beat Astralis, I think you just need a team that focuses on fundamental CS and team play. If Renegades can take a team off of them then any team with a competent leader and strong players should have a far better chance at beating them.

I can see Na'Vi/MiBR/Liquid/ENCE beating them, maybe not on a consistent basis, but these teams can steal a win away from Astralis at some events. But I only see it happen if there will be no roster changes in these teams (just like Astralis is doing) and they will practice really hard and learn from Astralis. 2019 might be a really fun year of CS if other teams are able to start catching up to Astralis, but its going to be an awesome year of CS either way :)

I haven't read earlier comments but I think ENCE might have a chance on a good day. Major Final Map 1 (Train) could have been for ENCE if Allu and Sergej would have hit few crucial shots. All in all Astralis had amazing game whereas ENCE players Sergej and Allu had a little bit off day IMO. Also Renegades beat Astralis on Mirage which is also strong map for ENCE. So think about a scenario where ENCE would have banned Inferno and had the best CS of their lives. ENCE also has similar tactical approach to the game as Astralis, which I think is the key to beat Astralis. From other teams I think Renegades just played over expectations and wouldn't have a change. Faze have hit the rock bottom of that star lineup. NaVi's playstyle is not winning against Astralis as they rely too much on individual plays. Liquid apparently can perform full on chokes if you win few crucial rounds whereas ENCE has proved to be amazing on high pressure situations and comebacks. While writing I just realized that MIBR new old SK lineup could stand a chance if they will get their shit together. [EDIT:] Also congraz for Astralis. They are amazing team and I don't understand why people say they are boring? They have amazing strats and utility usage. Almost in every game we see newideas and strats or variations from them and amazing team play. Actually Astralis also has top individual plays like xyp9x clutches and device's op plays and magisk's spraytransfers and entry kills. Dupreeh is also worldclass. (I don't like gla1ve, he looks so arrogant, which doesn't fit my finnish mentality) I think they have changed the game and more and more teams will copy their tactics in the future.

as obvious as this is, i feel like it needs to be said again. There is little chance a team works when you just slap together a selection of star players from each continent. It just doesnt work like that. The reason astralis works is that they a) all speak the same language which makes communications way easier than say a team that all speak english but it isnt their native language for example. small nuances matter. b) they arent all star-players. at least they werent when they started. its just practise and working together for so long. you cannot fix your team by swapping out people every time you lose. thats absurd. its like going back to the beginning again and starting over. this sort of power that astralis has, is something that one needs to build for years.

I agree I feel like every team is being too lazy and not doing enough of what Astralis is constantly doing. I feel like their is a huge difference in terms of the coaches as Zonic is always preparing every little thing for their match and trying to anti star their opponent which I feel like other coaches do less of.
2019-03-06 08:53
Ence was probably the hardest working team and they reached the major final, teams like FaZe barelly do the hard work and NiKo still says that he is sick of watching astralis win but doesn't do anything about it
