Was gonna watch it cos I thought it might be close but oh my fucking god liquid make it boring as fuck, at least Astralis made clever plays in their matches, made you think about the game deeper, TL just take aim duels. Wouldve prefered Vitality vs ENCE or Even MIBR over this shit

Nade stacking, clever smokes and molotovs, utilising boosts we rarely see, great tactics etc
2019-07-21 22:42
throwing a smoke at a door = cleaver apparently

Just watch a breakdown video mr patriot, they were always cleverly gaining map control and utilising multiple ways of cleverly using nades

sounds boring to me rather see high octane testosterone giving aim duels

uhhhh yeah????? wtf you're trying to strawman new found smokes when by default that puts you in a position where you're defending retarded aim dueling 24/7 , wtf??? by comparison what astralis did was 9999 iq dumbass ahahahhaa

Huuuge +1 man Astralis playstyle was much more better :( I miss smarts strats and tactics from Gla1ve :/

Exactly. Astralis played smart. Liquid just headshots immoderately.

They really do, I've watched every final they have been in this year, they think logically about utility but they aren't unique or super clever

Xyp9x uses clever positioning over utility when making plays which means he can catch out players

2019-07-21 22:48
They got there by beating MIBR, RNG, and Heroic. Very impressive. Whilst Liquid had to play G2 and Vitality. It's a shame that Vitality had to play Liquid so early on, Vitality and Liquid in a BO5 would've been much better.

Honestly, I was originally hyped for Liquid, especially with stewie, but the fact is they are SO boring. They just do generic shit better than others. Even though I do admire the fact that they are the best at what they do, I can't get over the fact that they are so goddamn default.

I can admire too that they are absolutely great at the game, but it's so generic and boring
2019-07-21 22:50
its not liquid its ence that make it boring any other team like vitality, na'vi or astralis in there against liquid and this would be a fun final. but no ence gets a lucky run undeserved final imo

I swear that the top 5 teams (currently LIQUID AST ENCE, VITA and NRG) apart from liquid and astralis just fluked and got lucky as fuck. They're no better than NIP or Mouz. Hell, Heroic is almost on par with VITA, ENCE and NRG.
2019-07-21 22:55
I just don`t get it how my fellow countrymen can be such annoying fanboys. Yea I get it ENCE is a meme and the funniest thing is that EZ4ENCE meme became reality. I enjoy seeing a finnish team succeed at highest level of Counter-Strike but we should be more realistic when it comes to ENCE. Yea they jumped on top of the HLTV ratings really fast and did it in spectacular fashion but they really have not been showing up after the major. Major final spot and winning a freaking BO1 who cares a fuck Blast tournament does not tell anything about this team. They barely won Heroic and even lost to them at Cologne which tells something about them. Liquid has been showing how a top 5 team should perform and the keyword is consistency. I hope ENCE can figure their shit out and became a powerhouse they have the potential to be. But atm stfu delusional finnish zitfaces and kneel to the NA :D
2019-07-21 22:50
Exactly.... HUGE +1 I hate Liquid playstyle :/ I mistt smart strats and tractics from gla1ve Liquid plays is only for aim pushing bombsites and go awim duels against oponnets :( I miss Astralis Tactics :/

Everyone called astralis boring and said they never took risks, now we have a team who survive on star potential and taking risks and people don't like it. I get what you mean but I like watching the game, and comparing different styles. Liquid dominating on pure aim and talent is exciting in my opinion.

I liked how Astralis played, it was interesting to watch and each player was so different and they all had dynamics that made them unique, Gla1ve was sneaky, xyp was the clutch minister, Devve was the star awper and could pick up a rifle, magisk was a great rifler and dupreeh showed up when tou really needed it and showed great supportive elements. in liquid all I see is aimer aimer aimer aimer awper
2019-07-21 23:03
To be honest nitr0 is kinda an aimer too :P. But yeah I agree to an extent, I love to see innovation but sometimes its a nice change of pace to see the basics done to perfection. I'm sure that when teams start to figure out Liquid then they will adapt and be more interesting.
2019-07-21 23:03
To add, I think liquid against a team like na'vi is really exciting, because they match up so well against eachother. They always have. But against a team like Ence who, frankly cant put up a good showing against liquid, I can see how it would be boring. I think that the top 10 rankings are really out of shape right now, and I think a lot of teams are falsely ranked based off of 1 or 2 good placings.

It was clear from the start that TL would win this tournament. Astralis and Navi are in summer break. MiBR is in shambles. Ence and Vitality are just fluke teams. TL had no real opposition (not their fault). I didn't even bother watching any game. Just peeking from time to time to check the results. CSGO 2019 season stopped in Cologne and will be back for the Major.

i remember x7 saying some finals against Astralis that they did shoot HS so fuckin quick that Ence guys didnt even time to react. Now the same with liquid. And some of the timings are too perfect... Smells.

But man... ENCE in final against Astralis was destoyed by Astralis's Tactics not only aim duels like Liquid do.... I rly hate Liquid playstyle :/

yes it was. Astralis were way better team in Major that time. This what im talking about were some other tournament. it might not been a final. Well anyway.. this just. I dont know. Like back in the day teams had only 1 great HS machine. Like Niko in faze or Simple in Navi. Now you have 4 guys only for HS instant? smells shit for me....
