But only in the last year or so. Before ENCE starting performing Finland sucked too. Norway have just as many good players as the Finns but neither country ever managed to make a solid team that stuck together, until new ENCE anyway.

You don't know cromen who played in Faze for a bit? Or marcelious and radifaction who are supposedly the big new hopes for Norway. Or Zeves who's been around for ages but never achieves anything. Or Polly and hallzerk, mystic and Andz etc. There's just as many good tier 3 level semi-pro or pro Norwegians as Finns.

2019-10-10 12:59
Still better than the US or Canada though.. But no doubt. Denmark best.. Astralis best team ever. changed the game. 5 teams in top 30. more players than any other nations. And Sweden also many pro players.. But its not like Finland has nothing.. its not Denmark no. but better than many others. from Germany to spain, and acutally have a team in top 30 where the US have none.

Well no. But if you claim facts wouls suggest so I wonder if someone else is? Its a fact that neither the US nor Canada have a team in top 30. Finland do and have had for a long time now. and other players around to.. US and Canadian talent have to rely on internation teams because there isnt a scene to support national teams like you see in Denmark and Sweden, and well even Finland since they actually have that team.

let me provide a hypothetical situation Prime fnatic back but switch pronax and gla1ve current BR scene > danish and swedish scene because furia > any 5 man roster from denmark or sweden? is that ur logic? cuz if so then ur retarded
2019-10-10 20:24
What you say make little sense.. and seems more like your logic.. and thus again i must ask who is retarted since you keep using that word.. not really doing anything good if you actually have a point? Fnatic is not back. to the point we need more games to see it. No reason for Gla1ve to go there. would be silly. Brazil not sure why? I havent mentioned them but well no not better than Denmark or Sweden. Denmark have more pro players in top 30. and more teams.. Same with Sweden. Not sure what you are on about. Maybe read things one more time before going on. And then if there is something then make your point from the topic. and speak like you have one. and as an adult.. Then maybe we can figure out what on earth you mean and your logic is.

I claim the scene works better in Finland yes. The US have always only had a handful of top players on International teams. so overall yes.. EG thing is new. they where really low before. and is an international roster for that matter. TL international roster. on those teams though is some US players that in this time is really good. But I dont see the overall level of US cs being strong. So many people yet so few really good players. the rest of those in top 30. ofc good but at normal rate. with so many players and people they should and could be much stronger. thus the scene have problems. its not healthy.. When you see much smaller nations do way more. then its because the scene is stronger. its build better. there is more structure. Where the Us just have a few random good players. But that however is a case of how you view it. I dont see just because the US have a few good players out of so many people mean the scene is good. more the other side, because they dont have more. where the other scenes are stronger because they get more from what little they have. However you can think that a few US players on international teams make them ohh so good. And I wont even call you retarted.. if that is what you think then that really okay.

2019-10-10 20:40
Well thanks since you are not saying anything and just acting up.. As said you can beleive so if you want. I could argue of the the level of those players as top. top for the US sure. but top international. the list get shorter. Not to speak of this number Finland 5.5 million people US 330 million.. And I know you didnt get that part since you just skipped and thus havent gotten any points on why as a scene finland is stronger and more stable. The US have a few random good players once in a while. they are not making it into anything. not using it. not building the scene. so must waste compared to what they could do. Where Finland where I would make the list longer that you do. get so much out of very little, making a stronger scene.. Same as Denmark and Sweden not just to the same succes. But well.. Im looking forward to not hear from you again. Even though you destroyed nothing other than yourself with your choice of words and making points. Thanks mate.

math and facts arent ur strong suit that much is obvious. u r good at resorting to insults tho whenever u have nothing to say in order to back up ur claims. maybe u should drop the history books and pick up a statistics book instead
2019-10-12 22:03
I dont need to back up my claims. facts and true always remain so. And no your thinking nor mine will change that. Truth is simple truth. regardless of what any man say. After that I dont really insult others. normally its the other way around. but its not my job to make others find facts. To know the truth is one owns job. And I just to often see peopel writing things with nothing behind, and making replies to people actually trying to show them something new and real that make no sense, or is just attacks, lies or wrong.. So there is nothing misleading about the statistic firstly. it says just what it claims. the number of people living each plays. so already there are your claim wrong. but trying to make the right claim wrong.. And that is stupid. Then you have a personal feeling that it means nothing with the numbers, you are ofc allowed to feel such. but first it is a personal feeling not a fact. And second I feel something else. based on its actually a thing that is made statistics about, not only in sports but when comparing countries in all things. from school system and money, polution, everything, the ratio of people living in the nation is used. Its one of the most relavant things in talking things, and comparing nations. something this thread leads to. And ofc it is relavant in talking players also. that is why its done in other sports, from football, to swimming. the olympics have offical scores where its down to medals per capita... So in your attempt at me. you bassicly call the system the whole world use irrelavant.. something that is used to bring context because it matters.. The more people you have the more tere is to play a sport. So to make it make sense that is what is used. so if lets take OL 2017 in Rio. the us won most medals. 121. but since all nation do not have the same amount of people how do you compare.. by those numbers you call irrelevant.. and that actually put the US from 1 place to 44. because smaller nations got way more out of the few people they have compared to the US and won more medals per capita.. that is a really relavant thing. because that tell a more correct story. to compare to nations on the medal number is more irrelavant if one have 300 million and the other 5, than compareing per capita.. Its the same with players over all. it gives a more complete image.. And that is why I call the statement stupid. because it is. First you make a wrong claim, that is always stupid. And secondly even though a personal feeling. you call something that is more relavant than what you claim, irrelavant. Something the whole world use.. And that is sort of not very smart too. There is nothing insulting in me calling that stupid. because it is. And that I say americans always make other laughs. that could be said to be, i grant you. but I just wonder why these things always come from americans. nationalist to the end. no matter facts or truths. blind to the state of their nation.

United States stephcurry30 
wow congrats we r finally getting somewhere! ill only address ur important points and not the nonsensical and convoluted ramblings in ur post as well as the straw man fallacy in ur last paragraph. so u mentioned per capita and ratios...now lets tweak ur statement into a simplified ratio: 5.5:330 wat can we say from this ratio? there r more ppl in the US than there is in finland. now does that tell us the ratio of how many CS players there r in each country? nope. but im willing to bet that theres more CS players in the US than in finland eh? but will the ratio be as extreme as 5.5:330? highly doubt it. so why didnt u put this in the context of CS players? why do u leave so much room for error w/ a ratio that is just a bit better than a broad handwave? it is, when viewed in the context of CS, a useless statistic - hence the total population comparison is irrelevant. an actually useful and significant comparison would be the number of players or pro players in each respective country. so why dont u do that instead of handwaving and comparing apples to oranges?
2019-10-13 11:18
Because I talk about strenght of scenes. And I dont see the US scene for that strong. with how many people and players there is. the background is not working that well since its not coming through. Its not a healthy scene.. when scenes much smaller and with less of everything can get way more out of it. from Denmark to Sweden, and even Finland. The US dont have a single team in top 30. and not really that many players overall. So clearly the workings in the scene is not as strong as it could be. they are not getting all they could out of the talent they have. A scene is not just single players. but all the workings with it. how its helped and seen. and its clear the US could improve their and if they did they might actually get a way better scene. that then means they dont have a strong scene.. behind the scenees.

US teams have been mixed even in 1.6. its just the assimilation culture that we have here. the shortcomings of the US scene could be traced back to CGS failure that also affected other scenes like china's wNv. the more recent ibp ban was also detrimental resulting in the loss of 2 of NA's best IGLs and 2 of their best fraggers at the time. mainly its the lack of leaders thats holding the scene back imo as well as the big egos. when u look at a scene like denmark for instance u have many leaders like friis in early csgo days and many r still playing today like hunden, karrigan, gla1ve, snappi etc but when we look at sweden and finland they r starting to crumble and part of the problem is also the lack of leadership like in NA. still considering the amount of players the nordic countries have they r doing very good, much better than NA but w/ liquid and EG doing well reecntly things may be changing. sorry if this post is hard to read i typed fast cuz i gtg

Prb and stingeR both switched to csgo and played at a decent level in the early days but they never managed to form a solid team. Shame really as Norway had a lot of potential back then. Rubino was around and cENTRYZ, hoyland, mystic, Polly etc were all really good players who played when prize pools and team support sucked. If all those Norwegian still played now I think they'd have a couple of top level competitive teams.

ty man, i always believed that stingeR was someone more famous who just change his nick for that game because he was unbelievable in that match. i think they lost in finals to russia, it would be fun to see NationsCup again.

stingeR mostly played source rather than 1.6. He was in a lot of UK based teams with RattlesnK and hughsy and other pretty well respected source players. They all switched to go I think but after a few lans under dignitas and mousesports early rosters (and being constantly destroyed by NiP and Verygames) they pretty much all gave up.

the time where UK cs wasn't far from NiP in term of skill. RE1EASE and stingeR/// I used to fanboy RE1EASE so hard. also centryz was great IGL back then. UK cs died when RE1EASE retired LUL. too bad. I bet this map has some correlation with the amount of Norwegian players; their population is far more dispersed and having a lot of urban area probably has a major influence on all parts of life. external-preview.redd.it/X4K2f8nmUqWfh9V..

Yeah Finland literally managed to do what Norway never did and get their top 5 players to form a team, stay together and get proper support. And it's worked, but it's still just one team. Rain Jkaem Rubino +any 2 solid Norway players (1 awp) and a good coach and financial backing. Easy top 5 team.

In Norway i think its more common to believe gaming is a hobby and you study to become something else. Sweden has a long history of gaming and teenagers literally grow up just gaming and aiming to be pro. Finland doesnt really have much of a scene, they were equally as bad as Norway in cs go a few years back, its basically after sunny on mouz and ENCE started getting some placements that other teams started appearing.

Well mby in the ballpark but not really. Norway has just as many nerds (but prob less criminals) as Sweden, just that norwegians generally have a different mindset and very few see gaming as a way of making money. We are probably more educated than swedes overall but definetly not nicer lol Finland is basically just Norway with cooler people in it

Not enough government funding. A proper education (to get you on the scene) costs 100K NOK which is like $12K. Not enough media attention, there is ONE newspaper who consistently writes reports about esports and there is ONE tv-channel. Edit: with education i don't mean you go to gaming school. you get coached and scouted and trialed by teams such as Nordavind jr and Apeks jr
2019-10-09 18:51
Denmark and sweden always had a bigger community. finland is almost same as norway, just that they have 1 breakthrough team. unfortunately nordavind hasnt done it yet

She broke the rules yes, and was fittingly punished, even though she claims she was unaware of the contents of the lip balm. But yeah, doesn’t change the fact that there is dominance.

Could very well be. But I don’t think that’s enough evidence for claiming that there is a nation-wide doping program. I am very critical of Johaug, and hated that everyone cried and felt bad for her. Maybe she is innocent, so what? She was at the very least careless. There are very strict rules for a reason. If you are careless you should go down.
2019-10-11 10:04
"nation-wide doping program" -ofc norway government dont want to be part of this but individual atheletes can make their own decisions with their doctors -for ex: Poltoranin (KAZ) and few austrian skiers got caught last year using doping

That I agree with, and I’m not as naive as many Norwegians who seem to believe doping is something only Russians and Italian bicyclists do. Individually I believe there have been Norwegians who have been using illegal enhancement, and gotten away with it, like in other countries and other performance sports. The few who get caught are «unlucky».
2019-10-11 12:30
They are still great skiers although they are using doping. Nobody wins only by using doping. Klaebo/Johaug/Weng/Sundby etc.. are still great atheletes. Am I dual- moralistic? No, I think Niskanen is also using doping and doping is also thing in Finland.

It used to be shit in parts of norway. But now the internet connections are getting really good pretty much everywhere. Problem is norway’s terrain (esp west and North) is reaaally challenging, and people live basically everywhere (which made sense in the olden days, when everyone travelling by boat anyways), but getting good internet connections to people living in rural parts is difficult, and expensive af. The internet is damn good around Oslo, Stavanger. And now also Bergen and Trondheim is getting there. Smaller towns in the North and west are also coming along

2001-2006 was their golden age. Post-2007 no one to huddle them up and carried the baton which lead to it's eventual demise when all the legends quit. That's why. After that it was all just a spark of talent but not really have a 5-man talent. You can see this in REAL(2007-2009) and kalle(2010-2012) now rain, jkaem, etc. Also economically wise Norwegians live well so they don't really have to try hard, and even then they had to work 2x-3xharder in Esports because everything is much more expensive(for them)

It’s hard for organizations to start up cs teams in Norway. Very expensive to pay wages, rent practice locations etc. Also consider prizes. For navi, being ukrainians/russians, winning 100.000 is sick, and they van probably each buy a house for that. In norway 100.000/5 is not really a crazy amount of money. Sure if you win that much 2-3 times a year, ur good. But most teams don’t Win tournaments regularly

Everybody played CS in norway, it was talked about all the time, and we had LAN really frequently, waking up discussing strats, finding new ways to nade etc. Then along came wow, and everyone jumped that wagon and it destroyed not only their cs-path, it fucked up most of their education as well. When so many jumped wow, it was hard to inspire new up and comers to play cs. And yes, when you can play wow and still money flows into your account cause Norway is that rich, it's hard to go back to competitive mode again, and by the time you crave competition, its too late and the scene was dead

Sweden and Denmark have just a bigger CS tradition. CS is more popular in these countries than in Norway (or Germany) for example. Why is China not the Top 1 CS country in the world with their 1,3 billion inhabitants and a very hard working mentality? I think it's because their focus is just on something completely different and the parents of chinese kids/teenagers will most likely not allow them to invest a lot of time into videogames.
