They weren't that dominant, I said it before, g2 almost beat them twice, they had for example a poor utility usage. I can bet shox with better teammates could have destroyed TL and their "era". Astralis in the other hand took the game to another level and TL didn't look like astralis or fnatic when they were #1, and yeah they did beat astralis, but in that time Vitality also beat them, u can tell the level the danish had lmao.
And wtf do u mean by "metrics", ignorant? everyone is ignorant pal u can't know everything, but for a normal guy like me who have watched quite a lot of cs, and played for a few years I can tell, TL was nothing special, even said it before the major, and look what happen, they got destroyed, and I can bet they will not keep the number one spot for much longer.
