hltv.org/search?query=cloud9 it isnt mentioned here. therefore cloud9 = fluke major unless u are a clown9 fan who has bookmarked the winning post and framed its url on ur bedroom wall, no body knows or acknowledges c9 major win

So if the "major win article" isnt there when you search for the team on hltv, its a fluke? Mate I think you're lacking braincells...

He does lack the brain cells and is probably a ChOKO fan in 2018. If it was a fluke it would be close calls from 0-2 to finals.

Sure buddy. And to back up the Dane here, the 3 Astralis majors were never a fluke either. Your Navi just played like shit, ENCE and Avangar can't get past Astralis's explosive chemistry. And lastly, they fucking owned around 2018-2019.

Answering #68 - You are right, they didn't win any titles in 2015-16 and its due to the internal issues (with dupreeh health issues and all that shit). The time they actually become so good is when they got an esports psychologist. Not the fact that teams signing T1 teams changing orgs or signing T2 players but that might have a contribution. Answering #55 - It wouldn't matter if the competition isn't as good as it is in 2016 because in 18-19, there's probably a shit ton of Astralis demos other teams (especially T1 teams around that time) can study.

HLULTV nerds deleted my whole conversation of 25+ comments. so i guess i wont bother to explain it again. astralis 3 major = not valid cloud9 1 major = not valid since the competition wasnt as hard in 2017-19 csgo era, these titles shouldnt be considered as True 'Major' wins. /closed edit : neither me or the guy i was having convo with were toxic, these nerds deleted the convo coz i just spat some true facts

Ok sorry I'm completely wrong they were #8 at best before the major such a difference They were tier2,thats my point,they were never even close to being a top team before the major,I doubt that would suddenly change because they had one big win,just like with C9

consistently being in top10 is not tier1 for you?? According to you, the only tier1 teams were SK, Faze and Astralis then

There are no definitions for tiers.For me,tier1 are the teams that have a realistic chance of winning an event with other top teams in it,around top5 or a bit lower.My point is Gambit never had a realistic chance at winning anything of significance before the major

I wouldn't say it was a fluke, they did beat SK i will say that Faze chocked that was Faze's major, and they chocked hard it's not C9 that won Faze lost

Yes its true but that doesnt matter in this case in terms of the legacy of their run.Yes,it was amazing but nobody can say they beat the best team of the world at the time because that was a different team.They were close to it but not the same.

Clown9 won SK ONLY because of scheduling,SK played 2 matches in 1 day and also had a stand-in

Astralis 3 majors dont count Also Cloud9 1 major dont count because these titles were won during the slump of csgo. csgo almost died in 2017, the level of competitiveness and viewership declined sharply, thanks to Steam trade bans and betting site bans. so winning majors during this period == not valid

"viewership declined sharply" youre deluded and retarded russian the boston major broke twitch viewership record LMAO it had like 1.5 mil viewers if i recall correctly
2021-04-07 16:30
So because "the level of competitiveness and viewership declined sharply, thanks to Steam trade bans and betting site bans, the majors won in that period is invalid? My friend, that does not make any sense. We can agree that it was probably not the most fun counter-strike to watch, but I would go as far as saying 2018 Astralis would be able to beat 2016/2017 lg/sk and 2015 fnatic.

Who cares about 3 years old event? So stupid. But still, C9 won a major since it had to happen one day, it is impossible to lose always against FaZe. Moreover, C9 were pretty good tactically prepared, except FaZe who screwed up like a drunk bitch, without using any tactics. "fLuKe FlUkE", when you grow up, you will understand that in reality nothing happens by chance, there is a reason for everything.

2021-04-07 17:28
not a fluke, nothing in a sport is a fluke, especially not tournament with 546848 bo3 matches and bo5 final.. it just shows that c9 player had potential to be best and they were better prepared, you can have bad round, bad map, bad match but you cant have bad month and tournament, maybe you can say final was a fluke but still its 5 maps.. better team should win disclamer: im not c9 fan by any means and i dont like turok, stewie, etc.. im just being realistic cause term "fluke" in sport is said too much and 90% of people who say fluke doesnt know what that means, fluke isnt when underdog wins against favourite and stop using it that way
