Darkest CSGO Period

Faze top1 gives me ptsd
2019-07-17 15:55
When fnatic were a top team and NiP shit - that was the darkest Period
2019-07-17 15:56
when LG/sk top 1, brazilians were at full force, scary times mens(((
2019-07-17 15:57
That's the literal Darkest period

lmao our G36 would probably fall apart if we tried shooting anybody. Bundeswehr is in a terrible condition and the recent switch of the head of the ministry of defence from Ursula von der Leyen to Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer is a downgrade from a downgrade.
2019-07-17 21:45
you have women head of defence? wtf mens, even Denmark could invade you with no problem

lmao fnatic's era was objectively the best. Old C9 with sgares vs Fnatic matches still gives me massive dongers. And VP actually being pretty good. French scene still quite good - KennyS popping off like Zywoo is doing now basically. Btw I think Vitality #2 rn is deserved BUT I also think they're pretty much the same as NRG Astralis, ence

It is true, this is when liquid were rebuilding though, and just as everyone suspected, faze went to garbage quickly
2019-07-17 19:19
this period rn not because liquid are top 1, but because no other team is playing well astralis have lost their magic, vitality is basically carried by Zywoo, ENCE seems to be hit or miss, but mostly hit, NRG cant find their true potential, MIBR is dead, NiP and Fnatic are inconsistent, G2 is again, hit or miss, and we havent seen enough of new NaVi I feel like Liquid is the undisputed top 1 because every other team is lacking, not because Liquid are doing exceptionally well. And don't get me wrong, Liquid is hands down an amazing team that have players that fit all the pieces, and I still think that if Astralis had their magic they would be a head on contender like FaZe was, but this is my opinion
2019-07-17 15:58

2019-07-17 16:39
wrong. astralis era changed meta of nades and teamplay
2019-07-17 16:42
now other teams actually have a chance to beat liquid like ence,g2,vitality or others. No one even came close to astralis
2019-07-17 16:58
everyone knows that? The only teams challenging liquid atm are vitality, ence and astralis btw lol
2019-07-17 17:04
I think he meant the only teams to get in a final against liquid recently.

The early period where the game was broken and it seriously looked like CS was going to die out because people left 1.6 and Source, came to CS:GO and found it shit, and moved on to other games. I remember the premier tournaments barely scraping 50k viewers. There was a lot wrong with the 'gamefeel' early on for sure.

+1 on top of that nip shitting on everyone and VG being the only other not horrible team (but still got shit on every time) was so boring
2019-07-18 17:59
Agreed. It was only exciting when it looked like NiP would lose. I remember the first time (?) NiP almost lost, it was against that British team, Anexis maybe? On Nuke. And they had 14 rounds, then they crumbled.
2019-07-18 18:10
yeah there were games when teams got good leads vs nip but you still knew nip would come back every fucking time... shoutouts to anexis though thats a name i havent heard in a while

I dont like the fan base either, but dont say you dont like the team if the fan base is shit. That's not their fault. Also, why the hate for rain and neo, they are nice ppl. Niko can get angry a lot so I understand if you dont like him, but explain why you dont like the other 2.

I enjoyed astralis era in hindsight but not while it was going on
2019-07-17 19:20
I'd put SK first but Astralis is definitely close. By far the most boring era. No flashy plays just astralis winning every match in the most boring fashion possible. I'm sure that viewership will rebound but either was it was such a shitty period to watch CS in. I just hope that the current roster never takes the top spot again.

in terms of csgo obviously
2019-07-18 01:00
yeah, but been choking since ever, they were always really good, but they used to choke, if they are winning hard now, just shows where cs scene went or they finally became anti-choke, and we are fucked (we: rest of the scene) cuz potential they always had
2019-07-18 05:13

Canada Bucket0 
its honestly that simple, they dont choke anymore. stewie is a lot of things but one thing for certain is that he controls a lot of the environment in a team and has supreme confidence. This confidence obviously was distributed to the other players on the team to allow them to get over their choking habits of old
2019-07-18 05:15
+1 yeah I guess u are right, stewie never gave a fuck about pressure, he always played good or bad, but never played good a tournment, then choked in a final or something u are actually right stewie secret CIA agent mission: destroy br cs, then join liquid illuminati confirmed

Faze period isn't the darkest because it really didn't last that long. They didn't defeat SK in their prime either. The Astralis Era have been detrimental for the esports scene of cs go in general because they were winning literally everything. Watching tournaments wasn't exciting anymore. But we can't blame Astralis for playing on another level. Other teams took their time to catch up, which made that era boring.

So what I'm hearing is no era and no grand slam. Even if they won that stuff, the form of top csgo was so low at that point faze was just the best by default
2019-07-18 21:29
FaZe and imo end of Astralis because it was boring watching them run over every team.

Probably just after VP fell off hard. Every teams dominant era was marked with close exciting games with VP, or being absolutely stomped by them in a final or two. Keeping teams from having absolutely perfect records. They disappeared and we got one of the most boring times in CS. Astralis just methodically taking teams out 2-0 with them barely getting double digits in a very intelligent, but boring to watch playstyle. That ability to remain gate keepers to being the best team in the world for so many years is the only reason I still rep the VP badge.

Yeah, you could almost guarantee that those 4 would make the play offs of a tournament, and if they met it would usually make a match to remember. Liquid/Vit/G2/Ence could start forming that now. Its heading that way at the moment.
