Not at all, I cheered for Ence in the final. But their form after the major is pretty trash

Astralis already had 3 fluke major runs.
2019-03-15 18:46
1) C9 Boston 2) Liquid Cologne 16 3) CLG Columbus 16 Basically, any decent NA result is a fluke.

C9 is #9 and it's pretty high for their current form. If it wasn't for the good form in last year they would be lower tbh
2019-03-15 19:00
he clearly means at the time of the major they won...

I disagree because if it would be rare for anyone to win the mvp it would be xyp9x

They only got pronax in like 2 week before the major and this was during nip's dominance. I wouldn't say its anywhere near the level of gambit though

Fluke isnt really based on teams you vs but how they perform outside of the tourney

How is C9 a fluke they beat G2 and Sk in the playoffs. Let me explain good sir. Difference between rank going into the major. Reason Gambit is the biggest fluke is they had the largest disparity between the team they won against. C9 is the second biggest fluke. But in all reality the fifth ranked team in the world beating the 1st isn't that huge an upset in the whole scheme of things. The run was more impressive.

well immortals were also in the final so it would've been a fluke no matter who won?

Not really because the difference in ranks between the two teams was much higher then Gambit and Immortals. Gambit was a severe underdog. Immortals was a pretty highly ranked team at the time. As an aside I'd argue that Ence wasn't a fluke simply because they didn't win. Getting into the top 8 and even scoring some upsets isn't all that impressive in the whole scheme of CS. I mean I think most of the CS world wouldn't be surprised if you said that Ence was going to make a playoff run at a big event this year. Here's the thing though. Calling a win a 'fluke' isn't some insult. You still have to play things out on the server. Gambit/C9/early Fnatic/whoever the fuck still got on the server on the day of the major finals, sacked up and won. That's all that counts. The 10-6 Giants beat the 16-0 Patriots. That 16-0 Patriots team might have been the best American football team ever put together. Does that make the Giants win somehow unimpressive? It's laughable and the CSGO community's obsession with calling thing flukes is straight up just due to nationalism on both sides. That's why I always feel like there's some irony when Europeans rail against nationalism and talk about how enlightened society is there but are absolutely gleeful that the only NA major winners split up and were never able to defend their title.

Ence Kato 19 - imo no, yes they got two upset but it was like 40 percent chance for them to win in qf and semis Renegades Kato 19 - could be but time will tell Noone mentioning luminosity mlg 2016...
