f0rest | 
Europe methylphenidate 
Hello HLTV, So lets share our predictions(trolls and biased fans are welcome) on what will happen in 2019. Even though we are reaching the 4th month of the year, there's still plenty of CS to come. So, answer the following; Which team will be #1 at the end of the year? Which team will improve the most? Which player will be #1 at the end of the year? Which player will improve the most? Which region will improve the most? Feel free to argue why. Have a good day

2019-03-26 09:43
Astralis nr 1 S1mple nr 1 France will end the year with a top 3 team
2019-03-26 09:44
Which french team do you have in mind? Vitality or G2? Or possibly a new roster?
2019-03-26 09:46
I think both of their current roster will turn to shit and eventually they will make a new super team and bring back Kio into the french team and you will have a top french team
2019-03-26 09:47
I think Vitality is doing great and adding 1-2 new players might help them reach the top.
2019-03-26 10:10
Yeah if you were to make I would take 2 players from vitaly maybe 3 so it might be vitality who does it
2019-03-26 10:11
3 might be too much, you don't want to ruin a core. ZyWoo NBK apex Should all be staying together.
2019-03-26 10:19
Yeah I'd just add shox and kio to that keep nbk as igl and I think it could become a top 3 team
2019-03-26 10:20
tbh i dont think that france will have top3 team with current lineups
2019-03-26 09:46
Yes it will be a new lineup
2019-03-26 09:47
which one? im just curious bcs i just cant see new french lineup bcs of all those dramas
2019-03-26 09:49
I think both g2 and vitalys current rosters will turn to shit and they will make a new super team and bring back Kio into the french scene
2019-03-26 09:50
which superteam? i would like to see names:)
2019-03-26 09:51
I don't know that but I would atleast have zywooo Shox Kioshima Then maybe nbk, kennys but I'm actually not sure
2019-03-26 09:52
based on roles the best team would be something like apex - entry kennys - awp zywoo - rifle/2nd awp this sould be the core but then? kio? nbk? shox? amanek? its pretty random and no real igl...+all those dramas. i dont think that there will be another shuffle
2019-03-26 09:55
I guess you could have nbk as an igl thought I don't really know how good he is at it, but you have to include shox if you're going to make a superteam he's still an insane player
2019-03-26 10:01
shox is average at best last 2 years and he wants to be an igl...

cis teams will be out of top 10 and liquid will be #1 when ence is 2nd with small difference to liquid and btw sergej #1
2019-03-26 09:45
Not sure if you're trolling but the statement "cis teams will be out of top 10" is actually likely to happen if NaVi doesn't change something.
2019-03-26 10:09
yes, i wasnt trolling, cis scene has been trash last 2 years and if they are not gonna improve simple will join to faze and navi will be out of top 10
2019-03-26 10:12
I don't think the CIS scene in general has been trash but the top is lacking CIS presence for sure.

Astralis Vitality Magisk Twistzz Asia definitely
2019-03-26 09:45
Asia is indeed a region in development but they have a hard time staying in the top. Hopefully TyLoo or ViCi can do it this year.

Liquid #1 (say flair checks out) Mousesports s1mple Tarik Australia
2019-03-26 09:46
Tarik is a good answer! But I'm not sure he can reach the top with NRG(Hopefully, i like the roster).

2019-03-26 09:55
#EZ4ENCE Astralis still #1 but not as uncontentested as so far. Hopefully ENCE, Navi and Liquid will improve to make the race seem a bit closer. ENCE will improve the most this year (including progress so far this year) #biased. S1mple will be the most flashiest but i believe in my yung boi sergejjjjj with great teamwork and clutches. I want to say olof will improve the most this year if Faze get their shit together. Meaning Niko gets taken off from IGL position and they find a good supportive IGL. Cant say who to replace for that or who to pick but Niko on the wheel they will crash and burn. while he pads his stats baiting the whole team for his own 3k while losing rounds. Oceanic will improve the most.

+1 NiKo is an insane player he is like the only one who can compare to s1mple but he is very shit at IGLing its just not his job they need to find a Solution for this IGL problem im sure when they find a better IGL FaZe will rise again because of the superstar power they have!
2019-03-26 10:08
Olof is being used like KRIMZ in old fnatic lineup and like they say old dogs dont learn new tricks. Agree to Niko being a player comparable to s1mple but hes leading at the moment looks alot like baiting to me. Not saying he does that on purpose but thats what it ends up looking like.
2019-03-26 10:21
About Niko baiting; I've been looking a lot on their strats and setups and It's obvious that he puts himself in positions with the help of teammates that improves his chances of getting frags. Best example is probably him always being the one getting the boost in mirage window. He's the best raw aimer so he shouldn't be the one doing plays like that.
2019-03-26 10:28
Maybe thats the only way he can do the calling he does now? Meaning hes always the most forward player. Id say with a good igl his lurker calls mid round could be a good addition but thats not enough for a bo3 agaisnt tier 1 teams.
2019-03-26 10:49
Even though you added the #biased, i think likewise that ENCE will improve the most. Easier to say based on recent results but still.
2019-03-26 10:08
Id say that if they hold their current form they would already be the team that improved the most. Im thinking that might be hard but still achievable. Obviously dreaming for ence to straight dethrone astralis and making their own era but i gotta be realistic so i hope for close games against them.
2019-03-26 10:30
2019 prediction humanity will finally have enough and start the biggest revolution ever.

Astralis will still be #1, but not as strong a lead as they have now. I feel like Vitality will improve the most, mainly because I want to see Zywoo and ALEX do something big. Zywoo or s1mple will be #1 by the end of the year Not sure who will improve the most, probably someone on ENCE or Vitality. Oceania will improve the most, as they have Renegades on the up-and-up, and BigDickStacey ofc.
2019-03-26 10:28
I don't think Renegades' success determines the improvement of the oceanic teams since there's so many up-and-coming teams from the region who doesn't need much to break into the top.

Yeah true, I'm just saying that as the best team in the region, if they improve it looks good on the region. ofc they have loads of up-and-coming teams, and most of them are actually pretty good, but not all of them are competing at the top level, and won't be for a while.
2019-03-26 10:37
Indeed, it lifts the region if Renegades performs. I root for them, one of my favorite underdogs.

ENCE will be #1, barely ahead of Astralis. NiP will develop into a true top team after a slight reconstruction Mousesports will have a new era Magisk will be the #1 player, slightly edging out Sergej and S1mple who will have an amazing 2019. Frozen will improve the most, as he finally gets his chance against top teams. Asia will improve the most, as we've seen their potential in Katowice. Because I say so danke
2019-03-26 10:55
Forgot about Frozen. Excited to see him compete at top level
