Well they where yes. but such a small break should not do that so there is something else to. mind something,. maybe seeing Astralis doing this showing that what people told them of how good they where was not really so. they where not next level anything. Astralis just wasnt there. and maybe that is hitting them harder.
I dont know. but such a small break is something many teams have all the time. it can not be the reason.
A break that can mean something is one as Astralis had. of many months, and half time and barely any tournaments. But again it was also needed.. they had been on the road for 16 months with losses at home.
But I just dont buy this excuse for TL the issue must be something else.
Because as there time as number 1. the break was nothing special.. it happens all the time in cs
