so now you jump from "No high tier teams in the region" to "Whoever wins more majors is the best" and "More pro teams, more prestige"
Problem most of the CIS teams face is low level of professionalism in the organisations. There are lots of scandals with 322 in lots of shady orgs. There are many teams not getting paid salaries for months. Kazakhstani players have a huge ping in platforms like faceit, which is the best place to start going pro in CS:GO. CIS orgs can't monetise their brand the same way as EU orgs, playerbase is pretty poor, which in the end leads to lots of orgs being non-profitable. Vilat from Dota2 said, that if you are running an org in CIS and which is not top5 in the region, then it's definitely non-profitable org, only living for investors' money. Problem isn't in the playerbase, the whole infrastructure is not working properly.
And you comparing only Denmark to only CIS, aren't there a lot of EU countries with literally 0 scene? If EU is only about Denmark, Sweden and
France and maybe Finland, then all the other countries, who in sum definitely have bigger playerbase than CIS, have BIG at max. UK? Portugal? Germany? Netherlands? Norway? Spain? Italy?
And if you count raw numbers, India and China both must have at least 1 good top10 team, right? You should NEVER count raw numbers when there are lots factors, that in total either make a good pro scene infrastructure, or do not.
