They are not old but it’s really fucking hard for a team to stay number 1 for this long. I think they will have a short stint where they are number 1 again then fall off for good as a top 5 team. Navi and vitality aren’t scared of them anymore with both teams outright beating them and the aura of their dominance is starting to wear.
Saving strats for the major
misutaaa scarred them too hard at blast fall finals they are still fucked up
Not putting in as many hours as teams like spirit or gambit. They been grinding hard. Astralis been playing a few tournaments having rest so they don’t “burn out” saving energy for major I guess.
They actually arent bad, check their matches against regular teams like NaVi and Vitality, EG, Mouz.
Astralis is still a nightmare for any team but CIS ones are using this online period very well, Astralis' playstyle is evolved for LAN not for online, Astralis players don't/can't do ferraripeek like those of YEKINDAR.
For example any CIS player has like 4000+ Faceit matches so they are so comfortable and their playstyle is evolved for online.
Once the LAN is back, the real CS will also be back and the rivalries will rise again.
It was because of Jet Lag u guys🤡
Magisk needs to hit his shots eventually, this guy has the best m4a4 spray and very good with every other weapon yet he started to use m4a1 due to lack of confidence probably.
The team has been through a lot of changes and still going through some.
Magisk form isn't that great and him.showing up and being able to utilize bubzki properly are there main focus points i guess.
Anyways, when magisk is hitting shots we'll see them back to the top.
they said it themselves. It's not like they have become worse, it's everybody else have become much better and knows how to counter their playstyle, compared to 2018-2019.
