And how much money do you think they earned by loosing nuke? Are you seriously this ignorant, if it was you. Would you rather keep your winning streak on Nuke in a computer game, or would you take millions instead from the organizers of the event?
"Astralis havent proved much the last 2 months". Again you gotta be shameless stupid to state this. Lets take a look then shall we, since you cant think for yourself (dont worry most people lack this ability due to being told what to think their whole life).
Astralis have lost Blast pro and IBP. The biggest fix tournaments in tier 1 cs, huge money machines because they dont matter at all. Astralis dont mind loosing this tournament, so they can make huge money on loosing. Also it will affect the odds on Astralis long term, less people will bet on them when they play next time, because people think like you, idiots...
now lets look at the Tournaments that actually matter.
- IEM Katowice, won the event. lost 1 map to Renegade that they had practiced alot with.
- ECS Season 7, qualified without loosing any maps.
- ESL Pro League season 9, qualified without loosing, dropped 1 map to BiG.
So to sum it up, Astralis havent lost a single match in tournaments that matter, but they lose left and right in tournaments that dont matter at all. I mean you dont have to be a fking genius to connect the dots. But shit, if you really cant see how it all works, then i dont know. Go dig a hole and stay in it then.
