vitality and g2 also in bootcamp rn I think
It's not a bootcamp, it's there teamhouse, they are actually all living together except fpr syrson
Maybe most teams think no LANs = semiholidays and BIG and some others actually work as usual.
their secret is people actually fragging. Remember when Gob B, nex, Legija were on the team? They got to major semifinals but never had a decent entry fragger, couldn't hold a site etc. Now they have that solved in most matches also they can play every map except Train (Overpass, Inferno is middle of the mappool but they still get wins on it) and have an insanely good winrate on Nuke and Dust2.
They r trash sorry. Cs online is just full of throws
Yeah dude, ask ex-Titan players how it worked out for them in 2014, shox even was forced to fucking quit because it was unbearable to bootcamp.
they dont bootcamp, they live together (-syrson) its been like that basically for ever
and honestly if other "top teams" do not find a way to deal comfortable with this situation in a timespan of four months they deserve to get rekt
They play on gaming house and many teams dont have that. This advantage will dissapear on lan.
I'm an Australian.
SO my opinion should matter.
BIG are fucking wild suddenly.. BUT what people don't see is the intelligence in the preparation, the work ethic and competence in competitive study, their understanding of their weaknesses and strengths, top of mind salience to recent changes in game information, how to bend but not break game rules by abusing competitive advantages and game design flaws.... probably have an incredible server, rocket speed net and reliable equipment. Not to mention they are the most coherent online team, with huge spikes in gameplay and individual quality. Xan to be specific.
This type of shit indicates to me that they were just on a much better platform then everyone else to succeed in this environment, fundamentally propelled by chemistry building, now superior confidence and a company with financial structures set to give them long term sustainability.
So yeah ASTRALIS is better currently but with such a platform ….
Maybe BIG is just positioned to peek into the right shot.
We also see several of their players at peak performance probably. Tabsen is insane right now consindering he is also the IGl and then we have Syrson and Xantares.
So "BIG SUCCESS TRUTH" is bascially hard work?
Who would have thought.
north is boot camping as wwell i think
they were anyways, maybe not now
Vitality bootcamping too in the Stade de France, except for Shox who stayed home for personal reasons.
And both teams meeting in upper bracket final, not a coincidence.
Vitality bootcamp without shox since a few days like 3 or 4
big success is because of 3 things:
1) they are in this gaming house for months now.
2) they had a lot of time to practice because they barely had any officials for months after DH Leipzig
3) they have a complete map pool because of that. thats the determing factor here.
I think they managed to took advantage from all the time they had, while other teams/players seem to struggle with the circumstances.
bigs always in a bootcamp because they live together in a house. syrson is the only one who plays from home
its not a bootcamp its their teamhouse...
tizian, tabsen and xantares always live there, k1to and tow b are there atm but normally live with their families as well and syrson doesnt wannt to travel to berlin atm because of the situation...
Online AND its not even a bootcamp, they all live and tryhard in the same place
