isnt it the same with every sport?
why were astralis so consistent and so unbeatable for such a long time then?
yeah not like in football.... same map everytime, little roster changes and allways same winners
its not "random". obviously a lot of things can happen in a game that depends so much on your choices and your current individual level. there is a luck factor, but you can find this in every sport and every esport.
If you see the same 2 teams play each other on the same maps in 2 days, obviously the outcome will be different because these teams learn from eachother. why would you push somewhere if you know theres a high chance someone is aiming for you there
yeah because the team that lost on day one can analyse what mistakes they made and how the other team played. This information can be used to win on day 2
Ok, so what's your point?
it's true that randomness is a big factor. has always been. the trick is, to manipulate the environment to your advantage. to minimize randomness and take initative. that's what csgo is about.
because the better team still (most likely) will win (let's say like 99 out of 100 times). the random factor gets interesting when the players and teams are equally skilled. then it can be a thing. but still, lvl 1 will always loose against lvl 10 no matter what. you cannot take out the skill and executions from the teams. timings can be set up. it's not that easy, you cannot just say it's all random. there are more factors/variables to consider.
statistics are interesting here btw. even if the skill ceiling is almost equal, out of 1000 times the better prepared team will win. plus players can have an off day. then it's out of balance and randomness comes in stronger but only because the more consistent team will abuse this. still the more consistent team/players will win.
randomness is the strongest, when both teams are the most equal to each other (can be their highest or their lowest point). then funny things start to happen (someone looks away and in this very moment enemy peeks and kills the dude etc.)
same veto and the same players not the same play style
