VP is already t1 for like 2 months
vp? maybe, but not the rest of them
vp has been putting good result for quite a while. They can be considered top5-7 easily. For gambit idk. If they keep up the katowice* form, then they can win even more tournaments but lets see.
I think VP will, they fell off after they left Avangar but Yekindar was a crazy steal of a player from Pro100 and I dont thik theyll leave top15 again soon with this lineup.
Spirit is showing promise, it depends on Degster able to keep up this insane form, magixx should only get better with more experience, and mir seems solid.
Gambit is the most mystery to me, I feel like their players are most likely to get poached to other teams or have someone falter.
I think they still need to prove themselves and do well in like 2 or 3 tournaments before we can call them tier1.
mouz and FaZe line-ups should definetly be tier1 in the future.
VP and Gambit are really playing like MOFO's... Also Spirit, coming from nowhere to top teams...
That is why I believe this bullshit of " ahh they are ranked 30, t3-t4 " doesn't matter, bcs is enough 1 big tournament and you go to top 10 teams...
Look Ence when they won a big tournament, from nowhere to the top..
Now down again...
I do believe all top 30 teams are already big teams, and they have all the chances to go top 1... they just need to win big tournament...
The problem is consistence, which out of that few teams proved to have it.
I believe t1 teams are and keep being Astralis, Navi, Vitality, Liquid, g2, and at this moment these guys, vp, gambit, spirit, etc.
But as I said, this thing of t1, t2, t3 is just bullshit, where ppl use to trigger huge discussions about their beloved teams and also to bait :D
Tier1 = consistency throughout many S tier tournaments and high possibility of winning them or making it to the finals(right now there is only 3 teams that can be called tier1 - Astralis,NaVi,Vitality).
If VP,Spirit or Gambit can show result like this for example 3-6 months and further, than they can be called tier1 but right now they are tier 1,5- tier 2 teams, who show a great, but one-time result
that is tier 1 csgo
I think if Gambit perform well in the following tournament(s) I'd consider them tier 1
1st time i see hltv post that ppl discuss without trolling
I mean if they can stay kn the top 5 the next 3 months, I think yes.
