i was don't know this details
Why would think a "new" map would be bad for Astralis?
Taking away Nuke will not really do anything since pretty much everyone bans that, so Astralis rarely play it and for sure they can learn a new map just as well if not better than other teams.
The issue is that valve will swap cache m8
=end of astralis era
You know Cs Go is dead if they swap map for end the nr 1 to lose... Its the TOTALY worng way to trying to make ppl lose. The another teams can just play better.
And Nuke did just come in last year.
remove nuke for cbble and remove inferno for vertigo
+4 seconds freeze time only for them
-5% damage done
+5% damage taken
+3 seconds defuse time only for them
+5 seconds to detonation only for them
+300$ extra cost for every weapon only for them
If you don't want the #1 team to win then have the rules say the #1 only gets to use four players, if that doesn't work make it three players.
Only then also be ready for the scene to die, since nobody really want to see competitions that aren't fair so instead keep rooting for other teams to step up and match Astralis. Looking for ways for the game to chance to benefit all but one team is really not very sporting, instead you should be celebrating that Astralis is pushing CS:GO into becoming more professional.
Itll just weaken their pool since theyll have to play either Cache or Cobble more (and they arent bad on Cache all things considered) so it'll just see them dip until they adapt to Cache
Jesus, why is everybody so fixated on a quick fix. It’s been said so many times, Astralis isn’t bad for CSGO, if they are raising the bar other teams needs to step up. The fix isn’t roster changes or map changes. It’s something as pedestrian as hard work, strange concept to some, but true nonetheless....
The new dust is a horrible map, old cobble was so funny to play.
i dont think it'll mean the end of astralis. they'll probably at least be decent on cobble, and they'll ban it vs top 10 teams that're good at the map.
liquid and nip were historically good on cobble, i think bringing it back into rotation would help them a lot.
i dont think valve can do something with Astralis
just other teams need to stop suck
no. and not matter that best astralis map ever is nuke. cuz against them nuke playing only navi liquid mouz nip. all another trying on 100% to ban nuke
Current iteration of cobble is frigging awful to the bone. It's like Valve murdered the map.
They would just ban it every game?
While Cobble is historically bad for Astralis, that was when their lineup had Cajunb and Karrigan. Glaive and Magisk both love Cobble as they played it many times on previous teams and did well on it. So even if Cobble were to come back into the map pool I imagine Astralis would be able to conquer it just like they have almost every other map.
