Well we are living in a society which are suffering right now. With this pandemic players dont have much else choice but to adapt to this eh? Might be cuz its online, but I feel that excuse is getting so worn out. Many of these players in VP and Gambit are pretty young, bringing fresh ideas and gameplay to the table. Maybe fluke or just maybe the fact that these players use a diffrent playstyle that the "old" fellas are not used too. Gonna be interesting too see if VP and Gambit can keep it up, or if Astralis and Na'vi gonna adapt and shape up.

I know, I know, your favourite team(s) didn't make it through the tournament, so you have to make a post on HLTV on how the Grand Finals are boring, I get it...

This bothers me. (NOT SPECIFIC TO OP - BUT TO TWITCH CHAT) People really looking down at this final just because it wasn't the 2 same teams. 1- Get over it. They practiced and put work into getting to the final. 2- It's been 1 year since we changed to Online, enough time for LAN teams to adapt to the Online system. I know it sucks and I too miss Lan, but JUST because Astralis, NAVI, Vita yara yara didn't make it into the final doesn't mean it's bad. VP and Gambit spent 2020 smurfing in t2-3 cs and now, once they have t1 competition they reached finals. Y'all to harsh. The shitty final had VP who won against NIP, Vita, Furia, Astralis and Liquid. And you have Gambit who won agaisnt Mouz, Heroic, G2, Navi and a very strong Spirit. Get a clue. It's been a year the "It's Online" argument was only acceptable on the first tournments. PLUS what's so bad about other teams entering the t1 scene? Refreshing as fuck.

They are just malding it's not their team and can't accept that. For me every final where NaVi plays is obviously much more entertaining and fun. But I understand the cause and I don't blame this on the teams playing. They obviously deserved their place. VP won astralis and liquid on the way to the finals cmon bruh. Would op really enjoy more if it was astralis loosing 16-1 in the finals ? I just hope CIS teams stick in top 10. The amount of talent in the region and the effort put in along the years finally gets some spotlight. Such a big playerbase and so much fans yet there still wasn't a major in CIS. EZ Clap

Now I don't think that the CIS region will be as consistent the entire year but I do believe the young players with great talent and who also speak english, will be only getting better and maybe but just maybe picked up by another org. There's also the chance, Spirit, Gambit, VP etc etc - just keep on grinding t1 and never falling off. Let's see... It will be an interesting year---
2021-03-01 08:56
I mean it was a boring final but it is bringing more attention to all the talent that is in the cis region.
2021-03-01 02:13
It was very boring relative to prior Katowices and Colgones, although, if we were to blame someone, it would be the teams that were unable to be competitive enough against the CIS teams. I do expect non-CIS teams to become very strong in the coming future; like, FaZe, Liquid, Astralis, NIP, G2 etc. So , expect plenty of tournamets without the CIS revolution interfering.

Online cs is garbage. None of it really matters. There is no stability in tier 1 like in lan. Tier 2-3 teams beat tier 1 teams. Please just bring back lan.

It was one of the best finals, for once in a long time, we had two best teams of the tourney on both sides and we saw the breakdown of one and triump of another. Every other team had the chance but they could not, because they played worse, no two ways about it.

You fucking losers want to see familiar faces and stupid memes, you don't care about quality csgo. Unfortunately, only Gambit showed us that.

Honestly this was a legit victory and I was really impressed with the performance of these up and coming teams from the cis region. Eventhough I am a Astralis fanboy, I appreciate good CS and enjoy when a team has something new and refreshing in store to put the big boys down. So congrats to Gambit for beating the odds and come out on top, I hope they can keep it up and continue their spree in the future. Odd thing that their only loss was to EG, when they generally played pretty bad, but I guess they needed to find their footing. I enjoyed this tournament, although the overall production quality was lower than Blast, who has risen the bar on that part by a lot. But still it was better than the last ESL events, less annoying music and less commercials and more content by/for gamers. Thanks for that.
