Can someone tell me why is astralis being criticised?? Thorin rekted them on Twitter.
Relax, gla1ve and Xyp9x will be back for 5th major :D
what is astralis without xyp9x and tryhard gla1ve? tier 3. and what a surprise, source 2 around the corner and the two cheaters take a temporary leave, no more smoke spamming. this team will crumble without those 2 players, and with no opposition left others will rise back again baby, woooo, go faze & c9
Being a professional is exhausting especially during these times. The veterans like xyp deserve a break and now with a 7 player roster, they can do that without retiring. Don't criticize anyone because they don't wanna play games 8 hours a day for many years
Look at how much more money Astralis has made compared to everyone else in this scene. Then remember that they're also part owners of their team, meaning larger salaries than every other player in the World. These guys are fuckin loaded. They all probably have at least $2million in the bank. Why spend 10 hours a day playing and studying a scene that has come to a halt with minimal competition for the next few months when they finally have a chance to chill and enjoy themselves.
No important tournaments = let your players rest to avoid burnout and possiply becoming worse. They are gonna be back before major and gonna win that aswell so who cars? people just butthurt because astralis always 3 steps ahead, im not even astralis fan but you have to give them props, they handle everything so much better than any other team
Smart decision from xyp9x tbh.
He knew Asstralis will never ever be able to beat and end NaVi Era so he decided to leave this sinking ship.
He couldn't afford the new cheat updates.
Because there are only online tournaments right now so they can play under random names like jugi or lekr0 or something to test new strats without reveal themselves. 400 IQ.
watch Thooorins video on it, it's like 10 min
I think og in dota 2 have shown that taking extended breaks is a good thing to do. Theyre more than happy to let a player take a few months off and play with one or two standins so they can be ready for big tournaments mainly ti
his big brain needs some rest
there are rumours glave and xyp making a new roster....
I think he is also talking about the hunden and lekro changes as well
