At the start that will probably true. But I can see them improving when they get to play and practice against actual competition for once. Can't be great for your game when you have to practice against teams such as triumph and new england whalers.
They have 2 tournament in a row in EU for now.
on the paper they should could beat these EU teams, but prob wont because of no pratice against them for a long time.
They will be back for LAN tournaments again.
EG was also number 1 in the world some time last year.
lol losing to tier 2/3 teams in NA on online is inexcusable. And they were only number one when Astralis was skipping events. They went to shit after taking a break but I suppose you TL fans can't help but be stuck in the summer of 2019.
Thats liquid, and have always been like that. That what makes CS still good.
every team can beat eachother on a bad day.
Liquid had always could lose to a "bad team" and then go win the next day vs a top tier team.
ofc not. Im trying to say that u cant use the "its online" excusse if ur team loses. Look at NaVi bro...They played 10 times more LAN games than online before this year started. Even winning Katowice and Blast group this year. People slamm them if they use online as excusse. But they are still doing pretty good despite that
Liquid have potential. NAF even said in his interview that it's harder for them to play against the puggy styles of low tier NA teams. They don't want to play like that since it gives them bad habits when facing EU teams.
