they can win major if they didnt face astralis or Team Liquid
This team won a major and went 87-0
Bumping because still relevant
with this lineup, I don't think they could compete with other top 10 HLTV ranking teams now. I heard rumors that they are going to join the B Site League with other tier 1.5 - 2 teams like Cloud9 and MIBR; so I think compete with them is more fitted.
f0rest could have kept going if he wanted to, otherwise agree.
I still hope they can be a decent tier2 team.
they win zree mazor in row
What those guys have achieved in their gaming life, Astralis, Navi, Liquid can kiss their balls for that, like really now days the csgo is a shit imo, I remember 2013-2014 that csgo was more exciting than it is now...
They need to get allu to have some more fun.
No. They will give it their best to get back to the top. If this was a joke team they wouldn't do it. f0rest is still legit; friberg was decent at the end of his stint at heroic; xizt is the same as he has always been, pretty decent for an igl; gtr is way too passionate about cs to waste his time in a joke team, he would join a different team if this one wasn't actually going to try their best; hallzerk is the star awper, the game will be built around him, if he can deliver then sky is the limit.
Let's face it, it's just Fifflaren and friends, it's not a team built for winning tournaments, or even being competitive. It's a last ditch attempt att milking as much merch money as possible before these legendary names retire for good.
some player was no team, and some was just exit their old team
so the budget Dignitas spend was not that expensive i guess
And dont forget, people will buy their jersey, or watch their content and put ad in it, it another money maker for Dignitas
So even they arent winning trophy, they having fun
at least please win the qualifier, and attend big event, then even the owner of the org will also happy
There's nothing wrong with that, I just don't understand hallzerk. Unless it's just a short contract, he can get stuck in that retirement home. Yeah sure, he'll learn a lot from these legends, but if he doesn't attend big lans he'll never be more experienced.
xizt wasnt looking toooooo bad lately
f0rest obviously god
get_right can still have his moments
i think they can get to top 15-20 if they really want
Why is 30ish years considered retirement age in cs? Apparently video games is more demanding than football etc. And what about chess? Is Magnus Carlsen too old?
I like how you did a tldr for 4 sentences
Will watch the old legends with a great pleasure. No matter they achieve something or not. We should respect the history and legacy behind them.
+1 I hope that no one actually believes that this team will do anything spectacular. If they do make something nice then good for them, but this is basically just them saying fuckit lets have some fun, reason for brining fifflaren on as well
im so happy for forest and gtr
I wouldnt call it a retirement.
I think they will be better then you might thin, and i actually feel like they are better then the current NiP
They obviously are not going to be top 5, but the team chemistry and hype can do wonders for a while. I would not be suprised to see Get_right playing decent with confidence again, Forest is solid no mather what, friberg has been on and off in heroic so if he can keep it up, it will most certainly be interesting.
Just let them have fun on this reunion while they still got talent left
It's like Zlatan going back to AC Milan. It's good for business. Dignitas knows this. These players are still really popular so they're good for sales and sponsors. In terms of results I expect zero to nothing. Just a really good business move from Dignitas. Sign some legends to make your brand appealing for young and upcoming players so in the near future they would be interested in playing for your brand which housed legendary players.
forest=goat. he can still shot like a superstar
gtr=not too bad. ok. a bit bad. but I know he can be better with this motivation
friberg=i think he is still good
xizt=i dont have enough info about his now situation
hallrzek= not bad
also they have already the team chemistry
also they have the biggest experience
i think they can win against t2, maybe compete with some t1 teams
Imo f0rest could still play t1 cs. But as he's not one for the future, i don't think he could find a relevant team that would be interested;
they want to do the Vitality approach of having a young superstar surrounded by experienced players that can set him up and do the dirty job while he has all the good positions, but there are some problems withthe current lineup that we will analyze by comparing roles one by one bwith Vitality.
ALEX - Xizt (IGL) here i think that sadly Xizt has shown in his latter part of the Fnatic stint that hes half thr IGL ALEX is, his tactics are either very simple and one dimensional or old, maybe a different team structure can help but i dont know, also Xizt fragging was going downhill in the later parts of fnatic.
ApEx - Friberg (Entry frags) Here i think it might be p even(evn though i think ApEx can still find a very good form, like in the first half of 2019) and on Heroic Friberg showed that he still knows his entries, maybe hell be a bit rusty but hes one of the pieces i trust more.
F0rest - RPK (Old guy/supportive player/Anchor) i think F0rest might play a role similar to RpK, because they are both very sharp aimers, very willing to sac for the team and can play along with the AWPer to facilitate him, here i think F0rest outclasses le Tank in the skill department, but RpK does the support/escort job extremely well and i think they both have very good anchoring, still F0rest is probably the best piece of this lineup
Get_Right - Shoxie (Lurker/Clutcher) they are both looking kinda bad right now, but wehave seen that Shoxie can still pop off and look like his former self during Dreamhack Malmö, for Christopher we havent seen him play at his old standards, since like 2017, i dont trust him that much
Zywoo - Hallzerk(Superstar AWPer) while I think Hallzerk is a very good player, he doesnt have the inhumane skill Zywoo has, but i think we still have to see how good Hallzerk isin a system that revolves around him, hes deffo good enough to do what Zywoo does against tier 2-3 teams though.
All in all, i think their idea could work on a tier 2 level, but Get_Right and Xizt are very big question marks
I know a few players hitting 30 that have never been better at the game than today. 2700+ elo players.
The difference is hunger, motivation and confidence.
I'm not saying this team will be all dominating but they won't be complete shit, Getright still has it but the amount of pressure he puts on himself to perform has been detrimental to his performance, if he over comes it they will do well combined with chemistry which destroys any amount of skill.
I wouldn't be surprised if this team out performs the young NiP team.
Every ones comment are Valid this is not a joke team they would see what fnatic are doing and believe they can also be competitive but at the same time they're a "mates" team so the pressure will not be as big and yeah they are gonna make plenty of money before they retire and i even agree that if they build the game around a young awper and have chemistry they can do better than NIP so its not like its a hopeless move by forest . Also gotta love the plot twist with all 5 of them back together even if fify is coach.
EZ tier 3
f0rest still beast, if the new guy perform, xizt do his job as igl, friberg and GTR dont go full retarded.
They can be top15 at least.
hallzerk insane skill
GTR bot but can do things with Xizt igling
Xizt can do great
