FANS OF T2 TEAMS
s1mple | 
Sweden chanchex 
no hate, i just wonder why would anyone be a fan of a t2 or t3 team The only possible reason that I can think of is if that is the only team (or best team) in your country/region, but if there is a better team why would anyone be a fan of a worse team? I have seen people with flairs of North, VP, Mad Lions, Sprout etc and I always try to think about it and I don't see the point (unless you REALLY like 1 or 2 players for some specific reason of that team)

that Major final was a Fluke and don't even start to try and defend it and they got their ass beat by Astralis in the Final to prove how much of a Fluke it was i didn't watch the final i knew they were gonna get destroyed Quarter finals they beat Vitality i mean good work but that series was still more on how Vitality Choked then Avangar did well and Semi finals they beat Renegades like come on they are not that good of a team in the final both maps Astralis had an 11-4 lead at halftime literally as over before it started i don't hate Avangar i just want everyone to remember it was a fluke how they reached the Final and it was proven when they got raped 16-6 and 16-5

It was not a fluke, Astralis was just the more dominant and more prepared side. Glave himself said "If a team can make it to a major final, then they can win it. We're not going to underestimate them." And this was on LAN, JAME was AWPing out of his mind and qikert was multi fragging like he was a superstar. It was not a fluke since they followed that run by winning BLAST Moscow, eliminating NaVi (They had their own problems in 2019, but still a huge achievement).

Yout misinterpret it, I mean guys which just like t1 teams becouse they are good are plastics. Guys which follow ther team through thick and thin are real fans. Thats a problem for Big atm, becouse Big gained many new fans in the last months becouse they played good and now these fans are mad when Big lose a game and didnt win the tournement. Big was a t2-3 team for years and I will support them even if they will return to t2 after online era.

Terrible misconception. I enjoy watching tier 1 games because I learn new things and I love how for example, Niko and broky play, or Nexa IGLs or how Astralis strats are played. And I'm not plastic fan, even when faze have been more consistent losing than playing well.

2020-10-20 23:51
its probably better or more sustainable for the scene to atleast be a fan of both a t1 and t2 team, otherwise how tf are they gonna make money. thats like asking a championship (t2 england football league i think) team fan why they support their team. some may support t2 because of nationality (apeks, poland). there are many reasons, and its great to be a fan.

in traditional sports people tend to like certain teams because they have been taught that way or because they were born in the city of the team etc but in esports? Can't imagine an average american being fan of Team Liquid in Boston 2018. Yes you are right, that's great for the scene but existing better teams (which will give the espectator more excitement) I don't get why being a fan of a worse team, I respect it but I personally wouldn't be a fan of tier5 CIS team if I can see Navi

It can be related to the enjoyment from watching their games. Why should someone care if Astralis are the number 1 team if they have more fun watching north for example. For example, I enjoyed watching c9 games more than other matches in 2016-2018 even when they weren't winning majors. Their playstyle was just fun for me to watch.

understandable, I agree at some point. You are right, for example I love watching Navi and Faze playing (even tho they always choke and they are inconsistant dogshit all the time) even tho they are not the best, same with OG or even COL, but I can't imagine being a t3 fan even if I like their playsyle because at some point I think it's just very low level, I get that you can like different (good) teams based on their playstyle but I wouldn't see a LEM match just because I like someone playstyle xD
2020-10-19 21:53
1 reply
LEMs aren't pro players. It wouldn't make sense to follow them for their gameplay. You would be suprised though. When I was on a team in 2017, just above your garbage teams, playing cevo with the equivalent of mdl/advanced/main filling most of the spots, we would get messages from people saying they are fans. Don't make sense to me so I agree with you about really low level, but some people kinda weird.

If we still count OG to be tier 2 because all the riflers are tier 2, then I guess I'm just hoping OG to get as much success as possible so a real tier 1 team can one day recognize how good aleksib can be with such limited players and give him a chance to lead real tier 1 players willing to give him a chance and not stab him in the back for "more firepower". Technically I'm a fan of all finnish players but I guess I'm hoping more success for aleksib because he does put in the work to be the best he can be and also has the talent deserving of tier 1 talent around him instead of the inconsistent mediocrities he is stuck with at the moment. Sadly being a tactical IGL is really undervalued in the scene and his teammates have this amazing ability to lose easy fights and make his strats look absolutely silly :D But I still hope for the best for OG since the org itself is really cool and nice so I guess I'm a fan of sorts?

That's it. also none of the current players really give the same vibe as Pasha did back when I started playing back in 2016 and just haven't really cared to get a new favorite top tier team.

Btw GL to RBG, I hope NA scene will through a rough patch and will back again. Valorant just destroyed it.

It's possible. But Spirit have to beat them if they want to show that they can compete with NaVi already. It would be a big test for them.

I used to be a fan of valiance/cr4zy because I saw potintial on them just being a top team, until nexa au¡nd hunter left and it all started being really weird. But some t2 teams can be contenders to big titles (say big, heroic...)

+1 Me too. I remember Valiance, they were so close to qualify to IEM Katowice 2019 I think. They could have good stickers (I liked Valiance's logo). Idk why they decided to rebrand. The only thing which I liked from CR4ZY were probably T-shirts (they were looking insane for me :D)

For me, watching a team rise is as (if not more) exciting than watching them compete at the top. I think this is why Tricked/ML were quite popular, especially when they had hunden. Though ofc the meme factor had an effect.

Actually I think Spirit have a big chance to win that RMR tournament. They showed solid cs in every single match (they lost map against gambit and nemiga but still they stomped them on 2 last maps) and they completely destroyed HR and Ethereal (tbh it should be 32-0 cuz Ethereal on nuke won both pistols, anti ecos and force buy). Spirit will also play closed qualifications to the iem beijing (they got invited) and they should go through without any problems. It's gonna be a good month. If they win IEM NY, they would get a lot important hltv points to the ranking.
2020-10-20 10:57
This is like asking why people like bottom level premier league teams. Because it's a lot more personal and the community is a lot more like a family. You stick out for eachother.

Cheering for the underdog is way more fun. If you are a fan of Astralis you are hardly surprised when they win a Major. Can you imagine the joy of seeing GODSENT or Heretics winning the Major, every one of their fans would go absolutely bananas.

tbh I was like this too, but then I started watching CS scene, like 6 years ago, and fell in love with NaVi, cant explain what made me like them, root for them in all the tournaments, but when I still couldn't bring myself to root for any other team when NaVi were at their lowest, I know that they are my team. Always NaVi, with our without s1mple, but it's nice having literal gaming god on my favorite team. It's about time, everyone will find their soul team sooner or later. Also, I'm fakeflagging, so irl I'm not even that close to the org nation-wise.

I was a fan of Tricked during 2019, I was so happy when they won v4 tournament and got signed by Mad Lions. Following such teams is more intimate, in my opinion, it doesn't make you feel like stupid crowd that cheers for whoever is winning. At the same time, you become a fan of t2-3 teams spontaneously - I did because I bet on t2-3 cs a lot, and there are consistent teams with talented players that you start admiring, for example, AGF or Gambit YNG

I don't give two shits about orgs, I'm just a fan of the game itself and I'll support whichever player I sympathize with the most, either because of his skill or his personality. Other than that, I always like to see portuguese players win but that's a rarity so... For example, I like to see Astralis win because I admire that specific roster's achievements and work ethic but once they all retire I couldn't care less about the org.

So your real question is "Why are some people real fans?"? I followed GL since they entered CSGO and throughout their issues with each roster, the org and the staff has always been friendly and nice to me and their approach has grown a lot and I just like the org. So why should I choose a flair that just happen to be at the top because they got in early, that got a business model that bleed/hemorrhage money just to be relevant?

Why jump on a bandwagon? Thats not being fan of a team thats just being a fan of winning. I'll still be a fan of every team forest plays for, even if he plays in T3 events only. I don't think jumping to any top team just because they are good is the point of being a fan, and I don't like it for myself.

That is so low that made me cringe. So take football for example. You support a team. Does it has to be on of the strongest in the league? no. You support it just because u grow fonder with that team. I'm a big ultra fan of sAw because in a miserable 10M people country we have a solid t2 team. They made me proud of being portuguese. I hate portuguese CS scene because its tier0 level but that does not mean i wont be cheering for my mans. If we dont support them who would? It is easy to be fan of some big org like astralis, EG, Faze, NIP, etc because they will allways have chance to win something. They have the €€ to do it. T2 team are all about the love for the game So if you cant understand how can someone support a t2 team maybe is because u dont really know what means to be a supporter/fan

You do not cheer for a team cuz they're winning. You cheer for a team because you want them to succed. So it doesn't matter what team it is. Even if it's not in top 30 lol.

couple of reasons people love to cheer for underdog sometimes you just like some players and you start to like that team even after they are gone and ofc there are bettors you cheer for someone who brought them money from your logic what is the difference between being a fan of t2 team and being a fan of lets say faze, fnatic, navi when astralis is better, why not just be a fan of astralis
