if you think beating furia and mibr is impressive, then you are holding them to a low standard. if you look at how they play it is mostly individual performance that gets them over the finish line, which is a bad look for any supposed top team.
they beat furia, beat mibr and beat North (all tier 2) , dropping a map vs both mibr and North. they lost to Astralis and then Niko carried them to a victory vs Astralis. oh and lost to NIP. this is impressive what so ever for this line up. and thats without going into their actual gameplay which is where it gets kinda ugly.
Astralis carried be esetag? ok now i know you are trolling or just completely uninformed, they literally boosted his stats to sell him, its very common in other sports... Glaive is back and looking hungry, xyp is 50/50 it depends on his motivation which i fear he lacks. device mediocre, yes if you have no idea how cs is actually supposed to be played. if you know Astralis, then you know they really only care about the major, and everything up to the major is more like practise for them. when the major comes back, you will see astralis looking more like their old selves.
Astralis, Vita, Col, heroic > g2 > navi, nip.
