don't compare that pile of trash to Liquid
the only difference that they dont work with esport conglomerates to further advance their monopoly on the scene.
No Liquid is Astralis 1.0
Liquid are nice team that plays exciting CS. Astralis are just a bunch of cocky players with shady IGL And booring playstyle. Liquid>asstralis
Liquid is more individual, Astralis dominated by playing Barcelona CSGO. Very different styles
Astralis would trash Liquid 2-0 any given day if both teams were at their prime.
In terms of dominace? Dude... let Liquid be #1 for 365+ days, then we talk.
i think liquid is astralis before they became dominate. always finishing second, then broke out and dominated every tournament . Liquid is doing what astralis did but money and winning everything will make them stop trying just like astralis
maybe if ence where to lose
yes, and Vitality is Liquid 2.0
astralis 3 major
lulquid 0 major
fnatic 2.0 is more accurate imo. Their play-style is very similar to fnatic during their era
They still have a long way. Astralis was on the top for 1 year. Liquid has been there for 1,5 months.
Yes. Liquid are the best of all time, and will keep that as long as they want it to.
No! Astralis of 2018 is the best team that touched the counter strike
Astralis had a sick era, now Liquid has their own sick era.
Very nice to see variety in era's. I love it!
Please... Dont even try to consider Luckquid to the team like Astralis. 0major era, lul xddd
Before liquid has back to back majors they are not even in the discussion
Kinda but liquid aren't the better team overall, if you look at teams that are good from both times and the team itself it's so different, like ast won because of their amazing teamwork and utility usage, liquid win because of positioning and aim duels. Plus less teams are as good as they were last year
Let's not call them Astralis 2.0 just yet. For one, they have a different energy and attitude when playing the game even compared to the Astralis of last year. Second, they haven't had a Major yet, though Cologne was pretty close to a major-tier event, wasn't it? Nonetheless, they really are starting to dominate every event they've been at lately, and I have to be honest, I think Vitality had a better shot against them than ENCE does (yeah putting all that focus into IEM Chicago and not caring at all about ESEA sure did pay off for Vitality, didn't it? Lol) so there's a good chance they take IEM Chicago too, but we'll find out later today.
The major is the next important step toward a dominant era though, but it would be exciting to see, and some new history for NA CSGO. It would make Stewie the first NA player to have 2 Major titles as well, and within about year and a half or so of each other. I just hope Liquid really keeps in shape during the player break, but they have talked about boot camping for a week or two, and they don't have to play in the first week of the major either, so we'll see how that goes.
LUL Astralis was much more dominant than Liquid
except liquid dont use a exploit
all raw skill and talent
The no major no era people are stupid.
If Liquid wins today and wins out the rest of the year without the major they will have been MORE dominant then Astralis was.
As of now you can't compare the teams because Liquid is literally getting better in finals every one they play. At this point overconfidence scares me more then them choking.
Anyway Liquid is starting their run of dominance. Astralis is done with theirs. You can't really compare yet.
Astralis dominated year, Liquid dominate 3 months. After major there's will be the end of their dominance 200% I'm calling it now.
I don't think they are a top1 like Astralis. They are a dominant team, but at least most teams can pull a fight against them unlike Astralis
