i dont believe in this shit logic that players from past games are definately better than the new generation.
it was fucking easier for 1.6 players, cuz there was no fucking scene. LAN with 2k people was considered as the major in the past but now LAN with 2k people is same as BALTIC lan or dreamhack open with no top teams.
it is harder for s1mple, device, coldzera, niko and etc. to perform because they have a lot of attention and stress and yet you see s1mple doing unthinkable stuff, device fucking everyone for 5 or more years, coldzera baiting but in the end winning the round by himself, NiKo 1tapping enemies to the moon, it`s actually crazy. I would imagine how good they would be without any presure.
1.6 pros arent even compareble to cs:go pros
thats why s1mple is the BOAT of cs
