+1 still amazing they can keep coming back to the top, most goat-type lineups dont even last a year, let alone being able to continually make it back
2019-11-09 17:25
No it continued throughout the whole year. My favorite memory of their era was Dev1ce punching his monitor because he couldn't beat some Brazilians
2019-11-09 18:35
Meh, he does that on a regular basis if games are going badly.

You saw the match against Faze? Here Astrails showed the BEST CS you can find. If you find that "boring" this game is maybe not for you.
2019-11-09 13:59
THE BEST CS 50% of the kills were smoke spam and wallbangs

Maybe give it a thought, how this is possible ... Are you on the "luck band-wagon"? (In that case they have been "lucky" for almost two years now ...) Or maybe such a deeeeeep understanding of the game that they can predict where the opponents are? On Danish TV, Zonic said they were a bit lucky with a few peaks here and there ... Fair enuff. Probably much different against 100T tomorrow, since they play a bit more like Astralis. But NOBODY talked about smoke-kills in particular. Happens all the time at this level.

for real thought. its so irritating to watch a team lose 2 players every round to utility. thats not entertaining, its annoying. It might be great cs but it's certainly not entertaining

I understand your viewpoint. I, on the other hand, get a little tired of "superheroes" jumping through smokes, ballsy play, fast mouse, three deagle headshots in a split second ... There is no "thought". Just basic animal instincts, whereas utility kills require A LOT of understanding and analysis on forehand. Our race is called "Homo Sapiens": The "thinking or knowing man". I guess a little of both is needed anyways! ;O)

Yes, I believe there is a perfect mix that is ideal for entertainment. A good combination of flashy highlights with the occasional dramatic HE or molly kill makes for very interesting CS. But when one team is so dominant during any game, it gets boring pretty fast. Towards the end of Liquid's summer era, the games started to get pretty boring, even from a Liquid fan's point of view. Having 90% of games be 16-7 or less gets stale, whether you are a fan or not. I very much enjojed IEM Sydney through Cologne, because the games were still intense but my favorite team always won. I'm very excited for the next few months of CS because there is a good number of teams that are tournament contenders. Astralis, EG, Fnatic, Faze, and maybe even Liquid. I love that uncertainty about the tournament that it's not going to be a blowout from 1 or 2 teams. I hope theres no era anytime soon, for any team, I am really enjoying the flexibility of the number one spot atm.

Astralis and Liquid taught everyone how to play the game, and now everyone else caught up! Who even spoke about EG/NRG half a year ago? Losing to NiP or Mousesports is not even an "upset" anymore, and don't just expect to win against BiG, Heroic or Avangar ... It is wuuuuuunderful times, and yes: The era of eras is over. The top #1 spot will change every month! ;O)

Lost No 1 spot on HLTV, didn't attend enough events and saw Liquid win the Grand Slam in less time than themselves. This is more like a mixed era now where teams beat eachother all the time. The Astralis dominance is over and it's way way more competitive now. A single tournament doesn't change that.

ya they are the ost prestgious events but winning them wont give you an era. era is a long domination period.winning 1 or 2 big tournaments wont give an era.
2019-11-09 16:58
right, but to establish an era you need to win a major imo winning a major and a big title alone won't = era but you can't have an era without winning a major,even if you've been good most of the year.

did nip era had majors? no did sk era had majors ? no you can have era without majors
2019-11-09 18:08
NiP's era was determined by their 87-0 map streak which was done in a time WITHOUT majors and without real competition (2012-2013). The first major was held late 2013 and their streak ended in April 2013. There's a reason why people don't think SK ever had an era. Same for Liquid. They had a long streak of domination but not enough to consider it a real era. If you wanna be the best, you have to win the best and most prestigious title. No one cares if you win fucking Blast Pro Instanbul with 3 top teams attending. Come on.

first major was during nip era.they didn't win it.they still had era based on the number of events they won. sk had an era fro april-december 2018,where they won 8 events in 8 months.many people like thorin don't consider it an era because it was with 2 rosters not because of lack of major. liquid has a dominace period for 4 months.thats all.just like lg in 2016 or dennis fnatic before olof injury. there were 4 ers till now nip,fnatic,sk and astralis. all of them ended when they stopped winning events for a while.astralis or any other team can make another era though
2019-11-09 18:40
First major wasn't during nip era, their era ended with their map streak. They were still good, but the whole idea behind the nip era (and why it's considered an era) was because of their 87-0 streak, which ended before the first major began and when fnatic started dominating. Indeed SK era was with 2 rosters, that just cements the fact even more so (with the lack of a major as well) that they didn't have en era. But SK and Liquid won lower tier events, but when it came to the most important title of the year (and the most prestigious one), they failed to show up. Like I said, if you want to be the best and establish an era, you have to do what no one has done before. Simply winning smaller events (even if their prize pools are large) where some teams might not attend and during roster swaps, it's simply not enough to establish an era. They had a very good run of dominance, but neither team had a fully-fledged era. Only fnatic and Astralis, in my opinion, had their own true eras. Maybe NiP but the fact that they didn't win the major and that their 87-0 streak was done in a period of minimal competition (basically VeryGames and WW), it's hard for me to justify it. But then again, they did something no one had ever done, so I might still actually consider it an era. But definitely fnatic and Astralis are the two the stand out the most.

You could say so, but that is something in itself, isn't it?! To copy a team that well coordinated is a tuff challenge. It takes TIME. ("Five fastest guns in the West" like i.e. EG is not gonna cut it in the long run. Hope they will pick up a little more strategical approach.) By adding Stewie, Liquid ACTUALLY DID manage to overtake the top #1 spot by some beauuuutiful CS with even MORE raw firepower than Astralis! Definitely hope we will see Liquid back in form! ;O)

Since it's not continuous, then you're stretching the boundaries of what can be called "an era" and under those conditions Team Liquids era is just as long. No other team has been as highly ranked as TL over the same span of time except for Astralis. Astralis was ranked #1 for more weeks, but as you've relaxed what it takes to be included as "an era".....
2019-11-09 18:15
tl;dr Astralis era almost at 20 months now.

No... This is 2nd era. They were MIA for a few months.
