boring final.... but Gambit younger team played fantastic
I agree. The group stages were quite boring as well. Watching astralis get 16-1 after talking so much was just boring
God bless EPL play-offs pls
I just wonder, what kind of excuses you will find, if CIS teams will still show this level on LAN
You are right tbh, isn't the players or teams' fault in the finals tho before haters come. Just really boring final imo
praying for lans to come back because plssssssssssssssssssss, want the hype
Me playing MM with drunk friends is way better than this shit
ONLY THE GREATEST TEAMS EVER CONQUERED IEM KATOWICE
BUT NOW, THE ULTIMATE JUGGERNAUT:
GAMBIT YOUNGSTERS, THE GREATEST TEAM OF ALL TIME!
cis cs makes me want to cry
Over 450K viewers on twitch :D
That's not bad.
Obviously but that’s because it’s online,
And two upset and potential fluke teams, not trying to trigger anyone but for now they are, we need to wait and see if they can keep up with the tier 1 teams...
It’s time to recognise how young cis teams are strong at least in online, can’t wait to see their performance on lans
I mean both team deserved to play in this finals but its just not the same hype and everything
so cuz astralis gets beaten in the quarters its a bad tourney? maybe they should have practiced better, lmao. x)
finally this flop is over
yup, very underwhelming. everything online without crowd etc, just makes this cs kinda boring.
boring final has even less viewers than the semis and quarters, so sad. only fluke teams in finals.
yes because we haven't seen Astralis/Navi/Liquid in Grand Finals enough times, right? Cmon bruh, finally some new faces on the scene, not the same chokes from NaVi or Liquid vs. Astralis. 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...
If felt like watching a Loot.bet cup finals
sorry but blastralis was annihilated by vp and spirit
2019 Katowice final was boring as fuckk
does anyone here know how much viewers this had on the esl channel i was afk
No, it was very good.
The final esp Train and Ovp, Dust 2 thrashing of Astralis, the Inferno Navi vs TL
not bad of a finals stop crying if your fav team wasnt in finals
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.
I mean it was a boring final but it is bringing more attention to all the talent that is in the cis region.
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.
the best katowice ever
no overrated teams with big names like navi,faze,liquid astralis
only best teams in a finals
It was Katowice only on the name of the tournament, but in fact it was not a Katowice event for real.
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.
Liquid vs Navi was real grand final
it was a great tournament :D
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.
This kiddoes are too brainwashed by valorant doesnt want other orgs than Astralis, NAVI or Vitality won the tournament. OMEGALUL
crybaby: "my favorite team didn't win = bad event"
It was so bad that ethan moved to valorant
Well played to both teams to get to grand final, they all took down some high tier peeps on the way to the final. Unfortunately the performance on the final was kinda boring, sorry guys.
I wouldnt say its about final, whole tournament lacked good series.
Flair checks out.
2019 - Astralis smash ENCE 2-0
2020 - Na'Vi smash G2 3-0
At least VP took a map.
VP is major finalist - AdreN +YEKINDAR (really good upgrade), so i think they will keep the form on LAN
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.
