"utterly shit right now" ...
I mean ...
Do you actually UNDERSTAND Counter Strike?
Okay, so let's take a look at the numbers, shall we? RIGHT NOW.
Two ranking lists, slightly different algorithms, but #1 and #2:
Astralis and Liquid.
The RD score after 3 rounds in the ESL Pro League, Group stage: Liquid = 50, Astralis = 25 as 1st and 2nd highest scoring teams.
But these two teams have been #1 and #2 IN THE WORLD for 1,5 year by now.
I understand if you'd say something like "maybe not in form" or "the competition is hard" or something ...
but no: Just like a stupid machine-like "0/1" kind of logic you either win all the time against everybody or you are "s**t".
PLEEEZ show me you are able to OBSERVE, THINK and CONCLUDE !!!
Or were you taken over by Skynet or somdin'?
Astralis and Liquid are ALREADY on The Road To Odense.
Not 16-0'ing everybody on their way, but you may benefit from looking at - actually EVERYTHING in life - a SCALE instead of "0/1", "either/or" type of logic.
And yes: We will probably see Fnatic in the mix as well, come December in Odense.
