Eras in CSGO

Brazil kindo 
In my opinion, these were the eras: -> 2012: professionalization era: when some players were still playing competitive in CS 1.6, and then were migrating to CSGO later with updates for better gameplay -> 2013-2015: Swedish era: NiP and fnatic dominating the scene with multiple titles and majors -> 2016/2017: All-americas era: With the rise and popularity of CSGO in the americas due to the influence of pro players like FalleN, n0thing and others, the teams from the american continent started to get more competitive and to play equally (for the first time in CSGO era) with EU teams. Luminosity/SK, Cloud9, Liquid, CLG and Immortals were amongst the best teams in the world in that era. SK won 2 majors in a row and in the next year Immortals were vice-champions in Krakow. Later on 2018, C9 won the Boston Major Finals against FaZe, being one of the best major finals in the history, if not the best. -> 2017 - 2020: Astralis and EU superteams era: Giant organizations like FaZe, mouz and G2 spending a lot of money building superteams with the best players from their regions, being G2 a french superteam, and, FaZe and mouz being EU superteams, and together with the rise and popularity of those teams, Astralis became the team with the most CSGO major titles in the world, with the same core since TSM. -> 2020... : CIS era: CIS region teams rising in the scene with young teams and prospect players with a lot of potential, teams like Spirit, Avangar/VP, Nemiga, Na'Vi, Gambit and Winstrike being the most notable teams always making presence in the most important championships and with the most notable players, like s1mple, degster, sh1ro, electronic, Hobbit, Boombl4, YEKINDAR etc. Thoughts?

most notable players from that region, and even though tams like Nemiga and Winstrikearen't still amongst the best teams, in a span of maybe 6months or 1 year they can get at least in top 10 in my opinion bc of the age of the players

Considering Na'Vi, VP, Spirit, and Gambit now, yes they do. But those last teams i mentioned are still in growth, but imo still deserve to be quoted as members of this era

I respect your opinion and somewhat disagree to some of your points. In my opinion, there were only three teams credited with ever having "era-defining" dominance and those teams were, in order: NiP, fnatic and Astralis. There is a difference between being accredited with having an "era" and simply being the best team in the world at the time. Also the term "era" is often overused and thrown around way too much just because a team was number 1 or won a number of tournaments here and there.

For me personally, there is a strong argument about LG/SK due to the fact they achieved quite a lot and left a lot of impact within the scene around that time but I don't think it was "era-defining", just that they were the best team in the world at that time. With NiP/fnatic and even Astralis, they were dominant for a really long time throughout the entire year, LG/SK were up and down, roster changes and constant losses kind of skewed the dominance. There is an argument for the fact FalleN/Coldzera were ranked number 1 and 2 within the Top 20 of those respective years but those are individual achievements, not team achievements. Look here in 2016: liquipedia.net/counterstrike/S-Tier_Tour.. (2016) <-- Apart from the two Majors and EPL:S3, LG were runners-up in pretty much every other event they played in. Here in A-Tier tournaments: liquipedia.net/counterstrike/A-Tier_Tour.. (2016) <-- They managed to win DreamHack Austin and ECS but other than that, every other team was still winning the events, there was no consistent dominance displayed, just a very successful tier-1 or tier-2 team. In 2017 (arguably the Brazilian line-ups most successful year): liquipedia.net/counterstrike/S-Tier_Tour.. (2017) <-- There is argument for "era-defining" dominance here. No Majors were won, but there was a more consistent dominance of events being won by the SK line-up, a total of 6 but was it "era-defining"? That is the argument and subject to opinion overall. Meanwhile, scroll back down to 2013/2014/2015 for NiP/fnatic and then to 2018 to Astralis and the S-Tier/A-tier event list is littered with consistent placings of just raw dominance. Yes, NiP's was the weakest but they pioneered being the original "indomitable team to beat" gimmick, without the success of NiP to get the game into gear, there would be no respective fnatic or Astralis eras in question.
2021-02-24 16:17
Nip Fnatic LG/SK Astralis Maybe Liquid too, but they didn't win the Major so I guess only those teams dominated the scene
2021-02-24 15:54
You included faze and mouz but not Liquid?

ok, but imo it still isn't deserved to be called an era in CSGO history, bc even though they were a very strong team, it wasn't an era indeed bc they didn't dominated at the time, and didn't even won a major. All the eras i quoted have major winners. Back in 2016 Liquid didn't win a major, but still was one of the biggest teams in America at that time.

I somewhat agree with you here. Your objectivity aside, it is true that the CIS region looks very good right now but apart from Na'Vi, haven't really achieved anything except for victory hot streaks and looking really good. In my opinion, the term is thrown around far too much and it is way too soon to tell if there is going to be a "CIS era" or not.

i understand you point of view, jonty. Somehow it still has the chance of those teams start to choke and then becoming tier 2/3 teams again, and just being a good phase, but in the future, as everything indicates, those teams are going to be a major part of CSGO tier 1 teams maybe even in less than 1 year.

I love Team Gambit and Team Spirit right now, I want them to succeed and I predicted a CIS-only grand-final at iEM Katowice. I think there is most definitely hope for a "CIS era" but at the moment, it is way too soon to tell currently. :)
2021-02-24 16:18
It's allways the same with CIS team, one very high high and back in tier 3 for years after that. Look at QBF, Gambit, even Spirit, having one good T1 tournament here and there and back not winning in T2 the rest of the year... And they should have an ERA lol. Even teams like LDLC/EnvyUs, which acheived 2 major wins and 1 final out of the 4 played, with lots of T1 tournament wins, from late 2014 to end of 2015, in a very competitive era of CSGO (3 teams at the top, with Fnatic and TSM, battling each other for tournament wins) isnt considered having an era, how can any CIS team can pretend that ?

"CIS region teams rising in the scene with young teams and prospect players with a lot of potential" some of the teams i quoted in the CIS era are still in growth, but some of them are already major teams in competitive CSGO today, like Na'Vi, VP, Spirit, and even Gambit now (which 2 months ago was still considered a tier 2 team). Those teams have a very high chance of somewhat making to the top10 in 1 year, or even months. As i said, it is still growing, and everything says it will continue to grow

>Team in growth >Era Seriously ? Being in top 10 enough to have an era ? There are only 4 eras : NiP until 2014 Fnatic 2014/2015 SK/LG 2016/2017 Astralis until now. I don't even putt LDLC/EnvyUs 2014/2015, even though in 4 majors, they got 2 wins and a final, so I don't see how any CIS team right now, even Navi, can have an "Era"
2021-02-26 08:17
Jeez Christ fuck off with that cis era. The only team that has won importsnt tournaments is navi. Lets wait with judgement of teams like spirit/gambit atleast few months

CIS don't really deserve the title of an "Era" which would asume they are dominating the game I mean outside NAVI they haven't won any titles and NAVi haven't even won that many. Astralis and Vitality alone have equal or more titles. So if you add in Complexity with Mostly EU players + OG + Astralis + Vitality + Faze + Mouse + G2 + BIG it's not even really close. If anything then EU is keeping the Era
