SK in 2k17 won approximately as many trophies as Astralis in 2k18 5? that's all.. through the all CS:GO history there were just 4 eras

While making the point Astralis being better
2019-03-26 08:30
Conidering the ordinary element of those competitions two tournaments more is not that big of a deal.
2019-03-26 11:27
He meant that that was two of SKs events, not Astralis
2019-03-27 02:30
Doesn't matter now. Just for the sake of curiosity, how many tournaments did Astralis won and how many did MIBR?
2019-03-27 07:07
Current Ast like 12, mibr 0
2019-03-27 17:10
Maybe I didn't make myself understandable enough... I was talking about the times in which this team was playing under the name of Luminosity and SK Gaming.

Astralis era is still going on. Second thing the question is about most powerful not largest and Astralis is dominating the scene like no one before.

2019-03-26 13:52
Lul by that logic list a single good team In 2013 that would get more than 5 rounds against this Astralis
2019-03-26 13:54
Depends on what version you play on, if u go back astralis will have to adjust, and now the old team wud have to adjust

Astralis arent really that consistent they played pretty poorly at BLAST Sao Paulo and they essentially didnt show up until the 3rd map of the final
2019-03-26 07:17
yet still didn't drop a map in the groups. the other teams need to be punishing them if they don't play at 100%.
2019-03-26 09:18
3rd map? so 16-8 on 2nd wasnt them showing up?

2019-03-26 02:05
They won 8 events in 2017 over 2 different lineups. I dont hate them at all btw. Also 2 of those events were cs_summit and dh summer. One was also a blast event and people dont rate the blast events as a top tier event cuz of the format. 2017 were for sure not an era for sk. 2016 u could say they had a short era between the 1st and the 2nd major.

but it's said lg/sk 2016-2017 era, they take both
2019-03-26 02:43
They were just not dominant enough imo, they won 12 tournaments over 2016-2017 so 12 tournaments in 2 years vs 12 tournaments in a year vs Astralis. During this time, SK/LG almost always had competition and needed to do well to win, Liquid vs LG at the Columbus major could have been a 2-0 by Liquid had they not choked. To show how undominant LG/SK was, they lost to Cloud9 on home soil in a match up that was so heavily in their favor. It is not like the stars aligned for Cloud9 to pull off a victory in Brazil vs SK, Shroud and Nothing were not popping off too far above usual levels, Autimatic and Stewie played well, but that is it. Despite this, SK lost in a disappointing matter to a team that they should have never lost to on LAN, especially in the finals of a tournament. Whether it was VP, Astralis when they added Glaive, or even a team like Dignatas, they would often disappoint. Had they won Eleague Atlanta 2017, maybe you could debate that it was an era, but they went out to VP as they often did at that time.

2019-03-27 02:23
It was 8 iirc and two of them was T2 events. 6 events in a year might make you the best team, but it’s not the same thing as an era

dude we take 2016+2017, got it?
2019-03-27 02:33
Yes but then the issue is like this: in 2016 they won 3 tournaments (2 majors) which isn’t enough for an era. For example, even NiP with pyth won 3 T1 events in 2016. After SKs summer win it went about 9 months iirc until they won another T1 event so counting those two periods of success together is hard since there is close to a year with no wins between them. They still consistently placed high in tournaments and overall were the best team, but they didn’t dominate hard enough to have an era.

nip era was nice but tbh the only reason for it was the Lack of Competition, After Other Teams catched up they dropped quickly compared to their crazy Streak. only 2 real eras have been fnatic and now astralis . both Teams are dominating a competive scene With some Great cs and With a influence on the whole scene Meta Wise.
2019-03-26 01:14
Based on your logic, the nowadays Astralis era cannot be called a true era because they don't have any competition from the other teams as no one comes at least a bit close to the level of Astralis.

Well he said NiP era existed 'only' because of a lack of competition. That is not the case for astralis because, presumably, to him astralis era exists because of other aspects as well in addition to a lack of competition
2019-03-26 08:17
Well yes, but even back then it wasn't like teams didn't put their hard work to win trophies and gifted everything to NiP. I think that this "NiP era existed because they had no competition back then" argument is just playing the role of a big excuse. Yes, NiP were far better than everybody, but nowadays even if there are plenty more teams on the scene Astralis is still far better than every other existent team, which makes NiP era pretty similar with the current Astralis era in this aspect only.

Big teams still put in their hours in 1.6 when nip went 87-0. They had their era over the transition period between the two games. They were probably just lucky that they were one of the first ones who realized that CSGO were the future. Although im not saying that they didnt have a era but it was way easier for them.

there is a huge difference between being without competion because you outskill every1 else with superior tactics even tho they are trying to be on top with the same effort. Or being without competion because youre the only team to be considered as a "real" professionel team.
2019-03-26 12:33
Correct, though it was never the case because there were a considerable amount of teams that were "real" as you say, at least for that time as everything related to the beginning of the game.

nah how NiP took the game at the time was unique and the fundamental building block of the development of the scene.
2019-03-26 13:52
And how Astralis are taking the game now continue to build over NiP's work because Astralis invented and innovated the game in a spectacular way.

bs just like the shit that youre saying , but expected from blinded nip fans having a head start with much harder practice in a professional team is even more crucial when u basicly start from 0. they did exceptionally good for their time period but its not even to close to the real eras.
2019-03-26 17:10
What you're doing is completely wrong because you're comparing a period of time from the past with the recent time and our current present. It is a very bad way of thinking as it leads you to failure every time. I wanted to tell you why is that but because you elected to be a dick in the first place and talk trash online (at least you can here lmao) I'll not giving you that luxury. Farewell.

SK 2k17 was with different lineups btw. 5 wins with felps, 3 with boltz.
2019-03-26 08:10
2016 was also different for SK as they had 4 wins with FNX from what I know.
2019-03-27 20:34
if there was no competition in the nip era, why was it possible for one team to go 87-0? game was fresh, everyone had the same requirements lol. They were just better than the rest, like Astralis is now for example. With this weird logic you could also argue that Astralis has no era since its no competition right now because most of the other T1 teams playing like pug noobs atm. Same BS to say "oh MJ had no competition" or anything else. Just because it was in a different time than today its always BAD in some people's mind
2019-03-26 08:20
NIP was one of the few teams that actually got paid back then and most of the good players was still playing css or 1.6 because csgo was dead on release.

"4.

People dont realise that when a certain team creates an era it always feels like the competetion is low. Look at how Astralis is dominating now and it feels like no team is even close to them. Same with NiP era so people cant just say that the competetion was low at that time. NiP was pretty good in those days and no team was close untill fnatic ended it all.
2019-03-26 13:08
So by ur logic at Fnatic/sk eras there was low competetion ? 0/8
