imgur.com/a/mELYo3r So, Astralis is getting trained by the Danish Defence Command. And people are wondering why they are so much better?
2019-03-21 16:52

idc, i just think its pretty fun that the danish defence command doesnt have any better stuff to do than playing around with cs pro's
2019-03-21 16:57
They were testing them for their reactions (Astralis did a similar "contest" with Formula 1 drivers, Magnussen and Grosjean - Because Jack & Jones sponsors both teams). And they came to the conclusion, that they might actually try market their pilot careers to gamers. It worked, gaining more qualified applications, and at a reduced cost.

LOL I think it is funny you got fooled by fake news. Astralis has taken part in a study where the military is comparing gamer's ability to an average of people in the same age group, they looked at reaction time, the ability to build a mental image and act on it and finally on how memory and the ability to remember. The Astralis guys did much better than people do on average - not that it is much of a surpise - FPS gaming trains a lot things like: - Multi tasking - Making decisions under pressure - Hand/eye coordination (some surgeons game to train) - The ability to keep track of many objects on one time ... Here is an article on the study (you will need Google translate): sport.tv2.dk/2017-11-21-fra-counter-stri..

It says that Astralis was tested by the Danish Defence and they did very well in reaction tests. Now they will try to recruit gamers for, amongst others, jobs as fighter pilots and air traffic controllers.
2019-03-21 17:04
lol who wants to be in the army when ur a csgo pro. whats more interesting than travelling around the world for free, signing mousepads and playing a stupid game

They're not trying to recruit Astralis - they just helped test the concept. They are aiming for gamers in general. :)

Thank you for the translation :)

The Danish airforce and air traffic control, have just made collaborations with Danish E-sport organization today, in regards of getting gamers to be fighter pilots and air traffic controllers. No joke. It was in the news today.

but the question is, can it work out? kek. Gamers serving in the air force *thinking*
2019-03-21 17:41
Why not? Drone armies are growing. AI is not there yet, and until it is, I fail to see a group/demographic more capable, from the moment they walk in.

The US have gamers for drone operators. :)
2019-03-21 18:39
normal things and common for years in the us and other countries
2019-03-21 17:08
Are you implying Danish army any good in general or? They're just there to be, they won't be able to defend themselves against any serious threat.
2019-03-21 17:09
Still better than the swedish "army"
2019-03-21 17:31
Swedish army would have to shoot against each other because Swedes slowly demolish themselves with their weird policy and ways of life.
2019-03-21 17:33
+1 i think you misspelled the country of cucks
2019-03-21 17:34
Well, that works too. Are you wearing their flag just to mock them or are you that rare kind of a specie that sees the things the way they are without getting blinded by patriotism and family affairs?

You're a idiot, Visit a doctor please. Thanks in advance.

You can't say that having such a good ear for music. I tend to think you're just mocking me off by saying that out in public. Deep inside you agree.
2019-03-22 06:10
I dont know why #49 is braindead. But Yes you are correct, i am from Sweden and I cant deny what we have become.
2019-03-21 20:18
Class! I've become a fan of yours, my intentions are good and I want Sweden to stand tall again but we can't unsee what we see!

Do you know anything about warfare? First of all, were not talking about the army. We are talking about the Defence Command. Second, the RDA is actually very powerful. But i won't get started on this topic, it's obviously not your strongest field.
2019-03-21 17:48
It won't deny what I said. They're no match for any actual threat. Instant drop down.

Just like every other country that doesn't have nuclear weapons lul. That's why were members of NATO.
2019-03-21 17:50
Being a member of NATO doesn't guarantee you safety 24/7, Russia or India might put their eyes on you and you're pretty much baked before Americans reach out for help. Just for example.

Yeah, Denmark is totally a threat in Russia or India's eyes. I'm not danish, im from germany.
2019-03-21 17:54
It was just an example, if they will stand in between two actual military powerful countries, National Defence will fall like tin soldiers.

No doubt.
2019-03-21 17:55
Actually, Russia is interested in our waterways, and routinely fly into our airspace to check on our response times. Back in WWII they were reluctant to leave Bornholm.
2019-03-21 18:10
Correction. They fly at our air space, but stick international air space including the corridors for international flight. Our buys take part in the game by meeting the Russians before they venture into our air space.
2019-03-21 18:58
That's true, my bad. I stand corrected
2019-03-21 21:39
Our army is not that spectacular, but our special forces do have a high reputation. Especially our "frogmen".
2019-03-21 18:14
No denying but on the actual battlefield, I doubt they'd make any difference in the outcome.
2019-03-22 06:07
This news was months ago...
2019-03-21 17:33
You are months ago
2019-03-21 17:35
You are so outdated
2019-03-21 18:13
Fack, IF I would reply to your reply the same way as I wanted to its just a copy paste of your comment! Damn you! You outplayed me!
2019-03-21 20:21
I mean wasn’t katowice sponsored by the US Air Force Why is this news
2019-03-21 17:43
Cloud 9 was as well (still am?) I'm pretty sure
2019-03-21 18:00
It says they tested them and thst their reaction skills proved to be amazing (but obviously we see that :) ) and no our defense don't have a lot to do which I see as a good sign.. wouldn't you?

The Article says that gamers make good flightleaders, and they tested some players from Astralis, which turned out to have fast reactions. Some of these tests may have inspired Astralis to train certain things, who knows? But they have not received military training.
2019-03-22 05:09
Denmark's gonna have gamers control robot soldiers in the future.
