I didn't even say anything about an era. I simply stated a true fact.
Liquid and EG combined won almost half of all relevant LANs in 2019. This is a fact.
On your pathetic excuses: Astralis played multiple tournaments that Liquid won during their winning streak. They just sucked and therefore lost. EG beat Astralis consistently and to this day have a winning record vs them. NaVi not playing is a joke argument, considering how many series Liquid won in a row against them. NaVi was an actual free win for liquid 95% of the time. FAZE GIGALUL. FNATIC GIGALUL.
It is common for unintelligent people to look at how a team dominates the field and conclude that it is not so impressive as nobody seems capable of stacking up to them - completely failing to recognize that nobody stacking up to them is actually a testament to their quality and not a hit against them. You could formulate a similar argument concerning any number of teams that temporarily dominated the scene, it is always a terrible argument that is only repeated by mad haters. There is a reason you hardly ever see pros make this argument. Pros didn't talk about Team Liquid 2019 by saying that they just weren't in the right place to beat them. They said that they were just waiting for something to change because TL was individually unstoppable. That's what someone actually intelligent has to say on the topic.
TL and EG won almost half of all tournaments in 2019 = Fact
NA has FAR, FAR less playerbase than EU, almost 10x less than JUST EU WEST = Fact
EU teams still struggle against NA = Fact
Cry is free.
