i dont even like heroic but even a blind man can see they are playing some of the best and most consistent cs we got during the online era. same as big (even though they dipped a little after the player break).
also neither heroic nor big was sucking "tier2 cocks" a couple months ago, both teams were on the rise since their new rosters formed.
i agree furia looks like tier1 as well but i disagree with coL because they are too inconsistent
hltv cares about raiting the most, that is the reason why zywoo was 1st last year despite that s1mple was better at every aspect of the game, with the only difference that he didnt have that many games against tier 2/3 teams( zywoo was consistently playing vs tier3 teams and building his stats).
