Norwegians come here!!
Denmark Brother_Nature 
I am not trying to be offensive towards Norway bois or anything BUT that being said.... How come compared to Sweden and Denmark, Norway is complete doodoo poopy??? Sweden is one of the most if not the most legendary CS country with some of the greatest players of all time. Denmark is hella fucking tiny and still one of the best Esport countries in the world! Up there with South Korea, And then here comes little Norway, how come your esport scene is soo tiny with little to no names at all? Explain

I know Norway has the lowest population but still wtf mens
2019-12-13 12:20
I think it has to do with mentality. Few people here take esports seriously. Many players, but few of us are dedicated.

Ahh that makes sense actually, alot of danish people are hella tryhards and most Norwegians I have met they are just chill
2019-12-13 12:38
Yeah, that’s at least how I see it. Maybe the good players in Sweden and Denmark are better at teaching other players also.

In Denmark, esports are considered an actual sport. More people take esports seriously there, compared to Norway.

2019-12-14 01:17
Fishing is very important to the economy.
2019-12-14 01:17
ye that is true, but my g from Hungary thinks that fishing is life in Norway
2019-12-14 01:18

I think all scandinavian countries rank above Australia in every list of quality of life etc so rather be good country with great cs than being mediocre country with mediocre cs

All but sweden.
2019-12-14 00:41
Unlikely. Show us a list where Australia is ranked better than Sweden when it comes to life quality. Not that things down under is bad or anything I just think they do better in Sweden in general.
2019-12-14 00:49
Australia 9780593086148 
if you take the whole country au might be worse because of the aboriginals bringing it down (mostly isolated places that are thousands of km from civilization) but big cities where 90% of people live im sure standard of living is higher than sweden recently

melb and syd are often ranked most liveable cities above all nordic ones, cry is free peasant
2019-12-14 06:15
funny you have to trim it down to 2 cities to avoid comparing entire countries where every statistics have you far below all nordic countries, btw blaming your overall country on aboriginals doesnt rly seem legit when they only make up about 3% of your population, with that logic our countries would be far better without middle eastern immigrants
2019-12-14 06:28
Australia 9780593086148 
those 2 cities are nearly half our population, when people talk about australia people great they aren't talking about the shitty desert parts in the middle of nowhere, they talk about the big cities which is what matters like it or not it's true, those 2 cities are better than the nordics, denying it won't make it not true, and yes the other half of the country is worse than the some of the scandinavian countries if it wasn't for our crap geography the whole country would be 10x better than all the nordics but atm it's only some of the coastal cities which is where most people live, cry is free
2019-12-14 11:58
So your saying the more than half the populations doesn't count for some reason. That right there is not saying anything good. I most countries there hopefully are great places to live, but while it is good with examples for other to look at surely it must be even better if everyone is living good lives. Might remind you that this whole debate started with you knocking Sweden, only I see nowhere that you have brought any documentation on why (And posts by trolls here on HLTV is not documentation).
2019-12-14 12:55
Australia 9780593086148 
no, im saying that half carries the rest overall au still is probably better than sweden im not knocking on sweden, he said that all scandinavian countries rank above au in quality of life but sweden doesnt, idk about others
2019-12-14 15:31
It certainly depends on what you look for. I see your one list and here are three for you to look at:

Those are some shit lists, world happiness report? Lol But i would personally rather be in norway than au, hence the fan of Atm it is nearly midnight and still nearly 30c outside, i cant stand the weather and shitty geography here
2019-12-14 16:28
Well I like being happy and so does most people.

Yea costa rica #12 btw
2019-12-15 00:08
Not accounting for almost 15 mio. aka 60% of your population isnt rly a good argument, its like some brazilian dude i was talking with the other day who said because brazil had some place with a high hdi (according to 1 very fucking scuffed source which wasnt even in english lul) his place was better off. Also the list i think you are referring to about livable cities (which has Vienna as 1# LMAO) are missing several factors which would affect your every day life in these cities, such as Sydney and Melbourne having more than 10x times the amount of homeless people as our entire country. Again comparing countries and going like "if it wasnt for this or that, we would be way better off" is something every country can do, it doesnt make the actual situation for the country any different. When we compare countries all 3 nordic countries are significantly better off. Financially: Oh and instead of looking at most livable cities why dont we look at most livable countries where the scandinavian countries rank 1,2 and 4 while AU is 8. cRy iS fReE

Most rankings put au over sweden in standard of living and quality of life, cry is free indeed
2019-12-14 16:01
Most? Do bring those rankings that does that. So far I have seen you link to one and I've linked to three, so you need to bring some more to make it most.
2019-12-15 01:07
No, you linked to one that is about finance, a "happiness survey" and gross national income, how dumb are you? Here is what you should have linked, standard of living
2019-12-15 11:21
Surely being happy is more important than anything. Besides you are linking to something that is 3½years old, it would seem to me that the latest years with massive heat waves, drought, sand storms and enormous wild fires can not exactly be helping your standard of living. Btw. one might say that with you guy insisting on keeping to produce coal, that you feeling climate change is just karma.
2019-12-15 14:21
Being happy matters but not as much as other factors, being unhappy could mean you are living well but not satisfied with some things and striving to be even better That list also has shit holes like costa rica and israel above germany and luxembourg, which would you rather live in?
2019-12-16 04:12
I disagree. I see happiness as the ultimate goal. In order to be happy I think one needs: - The basics ie. food, decent shelter, safety... - Knowing that loved ones have good lives. - Feeling a sense of purpose. - Room to grow ie. life is not just a hamster wheel. - Knowing the world around you is a place with good people and no evil. For some people feeling/getting rich seems to bring purpose, however even for them being rich is relative. Since when are you rich, when you roll in money like Bezos or when you have no financial worries and have more money than the guy next door. Or to put differently I think that if the criteria I listed is fulfilled for the most part then most people will be happy, this is then regardless of where you live. And as for the rich part - I do not think one from the rich part of the world can move from the to a shit hole place and be happy. Simply because there would be so much we would be missing, however if you have grown up with nothing and now people where you live have something then the situation is different. It is no different than some people thinking McDonald's is the best and then change their mind once they have had a real burger. If all you know is junk food, then you don't think it is junk.

Norway actually worst country
2019-12-14 01:39
No media coverage. The biggest newspapers in both Sweden and Denmark, has articles about esports (especially denmark). So parents and older people will probably hear the word esports appear in some random conversation, but they'll never read anything about it, so it's impossible to take it seriously.
2019-12-13 12:57
That is also a good point, every fucking newspaper writes about astralis whenever they win, and it is streamed on the biggest tv channels
2019-12-13 12:57
isnt it only tv2 zulu who shows any esport what so ever?
2019-12-14 01:03
DR also shows some CS tournaments, but the bastards at TV2 has bought the rights to much and it even blocks some Danish casters that is just casting for fun. When DR is covering I think they do it pretty well and there is no ads.
2019-12-14 01:39
Also you guys have way better weather for winter sports and mountains one can climb and so on, it must make for people being more active outside especially in the winter months. Here we hardly get snow and our "best" ski slope is on the roof of a power plant, so more time to play CS.

2019-12-14 00:43
cuz they only have oil so its just a inflated fake economy with alhamdullilah
2019-12-14 00:51
You really need to educate your self. Norway is not a nation that is blowing all their oil money as soon as it is earned - they are putting most of the money in a nice pension fund instead. So while the oil is a nice boost, they also make their money on just being smart and produce nice things. Also in Norway they do not have corrupt politicians selling them self to Russia for cheap.
2019-12-14 00:55
hahaha good one :D ive never heard of thing that was produced in norway i can say that of every other scandinavian nation tho
2019-12-14 00:58
man educate yourself, go to any list with "best countries to live in", or anything at all. We have the worlds best system, where noone is left out, and taking care of the nations money the best possible way. What is Hungary, lmao

Man if I lived in Norway I'd be too busy to enjoy beauty of mountains, ride my bike or sth. Denmark and Stockholm are boring pancakes so ppl need to kill their time somehow.

2019-12-14 02:07
yeah but we have mountains in sweden also, so i dont get why you say flat, and use a city as comparison :D
2019-12-14 01:21
Well, ofc it was lil stretch with a cheeky side tongue but if you look closer, your mountains are lower and far away on the north from all major cities, only 14% of Swedes live in rural areas, the rest lives mostly on the south in flat urban locations. Whereas when you look at Norway, Bergen for example, you have mountains right behind the door.
2019-12-14 02:58
yeah i know i agree with that, norway has much more and swedens mountains are far away from most people.. but i was just saying our nature is famous for being really nice, and its far from flat :)
2019-12-14 13:35
Oh absolutely, both are beautiful in their own ways. I'd love to visit them:)
2019-12-14 13:45
the nature in sweden and norway is completely different, no comparisson
2019-12-14 12:19
its actually not different, we have mountains, endless forests and lakes.. they have fjords (we dont) but the difference is norway has much more of the epic nature.. but you clearly have not been to sweden if you say its completly different...
2019-12-14 13:36
just google "sweden nature" and "norway nature" if you're still confused :)
2019-12-14 13:57
google "sarek national park sweden" "high coast sweden" "abisko nationalpark" "kebnekaise" those are just SOME of the great parts of this country, i can give you so many more.. im not confused, norway has more of the epic nature like i told you, but its not different though!! norway is my favorite country actually
2019-12-14 14:04
sweden good but not best (norway best)
2019-12-14 14:23
yes i agree 100 percent.. im going back again soon to norway, its close for me which is good

2019-12-14 03:13
I started following the CS:GO scene in 2015, so I am by no means an expert. From what I have gathered Norway's scene sucks because we only have to proper IGLs. Zeves and aNdz both of which are garbage individually. It also does not help when the good players always leave for the international scene. (Cromen, Rubino, Jkaem, rain and now Hallzerk.) This paired with a lack of good players leaves Norway with no relevant teams. The only way I can see Norway ever becoming relevant in CS is if a Danish or Swedish IGL creates a team with some of the best players Norway has.

2019-12-14 01:19
norway is actually my favorite country, but the people are famously lazy..
2019-12-14 01:20
famously lazy? how?
2019-12-14 01:22
when it comes to skiing, hiking mountains and all that, norweigans are not lazy they are actually very active.. but there are like 100 000 swedes working in norway, many of my friends work there, and they all say that norweigans are much lazier than us, take longer breaks, dont work as hard, its just how we were raised diffrently I think.. why do you think so many swedes work in norway? the norweigans love to hire us
2019-12-14 13:37
That depends on a person, there is always some people who work hard af and some people are slacking all day every day. Don't think there is much difference in other countries.
2019-12-14 21:51
Well the wagers and paychecks in Norway are generally higher in Norway then Sweden. And there were a lot of jobs in Norway before, so Swedish people came here to get good jobs. And I agree with Flick_ with the "lazy" thing, many people In Norway work hard af and some dont just like in any other country

nice excuse for being bad, the only reason you are not below both sweden and denmark in any financial measure is due to oil much like a handful of middle eastern countries, also dont be so embarrassed of ur flag
2019-12-14 03:26
2019-12-14 03:58
1. source for " the only reason you are not below both sweden and denmark in any financial measure is due to oil" or is it something that your dumb brain came up with? 2. handful of middle eastern countries? Middle eastern countries will choose Norway over Denmark for a reason btw. Denmark does not provide same opportunities like Norway does. 3. You keep playing games while I will make some more cash, okei?
2019-12-14 21:19
1. lmfao im actually starting to wonder if you rly are american since you sound a bit too retarded to be norwegian. Let me show you: 52% of the export of your country is related to oil extrusion, also look at this graph its sky rocketing right after 1969 which was when norway first encountered an oil field in the North sea at the "Balder oil field". 2. Good job at completely missing the point lmfao, i mentioned the middle eastern countries as a comparison to what makes Norway a wealthy country not because of immigration lmfao. 3. I make 65k dkk a month as a civil engineer i think im good, but keep making excuses for you and your countrymen for being shit at the game
