Played in an online qualifier
 | 
Finland Eestu 
Hello mens)) I played in an online qualifier with some friends from my school and we just finished our second game. Although we lost both games we played and dropped out of the qualifier, I'd say it was pretty nice to have a chance to play against better players and teams with some set strats etc... We probably could've prepared a bit better, but that's not something I should worry about now. Overall I'm still quite happy about the way the games ended up going. :) Only thing left to do now is just to keep on working on my individual form and watch more demos and git gud. :)

Thank you mr. Tunisia. :) Not the result I hoped it to be, but overall I'm still satisfied all things considered.
2021-04-20 19:04
thats cool, whenever i lose with my team, i get the big motivation to grind and go to the next tournament, keep your head up kings

Thanks! :) We argued a bit after the games, but nothing too bad. I just feel like we have some different ideas about how things should be done + lack of practice doesn't really make a good mix. :D But still as you said, I'd be really excited to play more tournaments or even qualifiers, but I doubt we'll do that for a while since the "lineup" that we have was just quickly put together for this online qualifier. Also the fact that I am pretty much the only one who takes these things quite seriously might not be the best team wise (all my friends just came there for fun pretty much). :P

I don't really agree with you, but that's fine we can have our own opinions about these sort of things. :) I think if you can balance all the other stuff like studies, family and free time with CS, then it's totally possible to still make a successful career out of CS even after turning 20. And besides I just turned 17 less than a month ago, so it's not really that big of a problem. :D

are u braindead or what? he is a very skilled player, you can consider him a pro, what i meant is if u are 20 and cant even play good against PROs in FPL or whatever, cs is not for you, just play it as a hobbie but u will never be a tier 1 pro

Nononono nothing like that. :D It was just a really small nordic online qualifier for a small tournament with like 5500€ price pool in total. We just thought it might be fun to give it a go and see how well we end up doing. :P

The winning team would've got 2250€ if I'm not mistaken, but you'd first have to win against the other teams in your country and then beat the other Nordic teams. And the matches were played on Esportal, but I can try to find a link to that once I get home. :)

Oh hahahah :D That would've been hilarious if it was featured on HLTV. But yeah as I said in #11, we just played in a small nordic online tournament qualifier to see how far we could go. We knew we had no chance to win games in these proper big qualifiers for actual tournaments.

True! I honestly feel like we could actually win some games if we just kept on grinding, but I doubt that's going to happen (might try some qualifiers with my Faceit stack though). Realistically I don't think we could win any games in these big tournament open qualifiers at the moment, since most of us are just your average Faceit level 5-6 players (but one of my friends is level 9). :D

i mean at least thats still better than me only playing mm, tbh i would enjoy playing on faceit if my friends didnt have shitty computers, we could actually really enjoy cs instead of mg2 mm where we dont improve, keep grinding, the individual lvl will just come with more training and playing games, you should focus more on the tactical lvl imo :D

I hope you'll get a chance to play Faceit with your friends soon. :) And yes I agree - with more training and hunger to improve, results will eventually come as well. And about the tactical side; I am the one who is usually calling and I think I have a pretty solid idea of how the game should be played (on macro level at least) considering how much demos and pro games I've watched. The only problem with this is the fact that the people I play with don't really want to bother learning these defaults and simple set strats, so they are pretty much wasted. But on the other hand this is one of my biggest motivators as well. As a Finn and knowing the Finnish CS scene pretty well, the fact that there simply aren't any good Finnish IGLs besides Aleksib and sAw (ENCE's current head coach) makes me want to work on this. I think I would be a quite good IGL, if I work more on my aim and general game sense. Although it sounds dumb coming from a Faceit level 5 player, I still feel like it's one of my best qualities and I hope one day I'll have a chance to prove it. :)

having an idea of how you want to play already is a good thing imo, the igl role requires a lot of thinking especially rn, finnish scene is definelty lacking igls and you could be a great addition in some time if you succeded in what you wanted, now you will have to learn how to also entry since most igls want to gain the info for their players to work with it unless someone in your team is already willing to be a dedicated one :)

Mens no need to be distasteful towards ENCE, they are trying their best. :( But that must have been a very interesting match to watch. :D Are these Flashpoint qualifier matches getting streamed somewhere? The person above you also mentioned a hilarious match and I kind of want to go see some of these matches live. :D

Those are open qualifiers so only ones who stream are players/teams, because there is like 100 matches being played at the same time. Dunno if those estonians actually bothered to show up and play their bracket though Edit: I found them, it's team Rakumon and they won 3 rounds on Dust 2

I'll try to find some streamers then, I guess that could be quite enjoyable to watch. :) 3 rounds on Dust 2 for a level 2 average team is actually quite decent considering we got 6 and 7 rounds in our games against only slightly better teams. :D

Twitch affiliate allows me to add channel points, custom emotes, bits, subs and stuff like that to my streams, which is quite nice. And no worries! I really don't mind if you are able to come watch, it's the thought that matters. :)

I am Supreme/Faceit level 5-6 and three of them were level 4 and one was level 9. We had to gather all the players from our school, so we couldn't get really high level players (I'm literally like the 2nd best player in our school :D). I guess we could've had a higher chance of winning if I was playing with my Faceit 5-stack instead, but two of them are online friends from other parts of Finland.

Thanks! It was a really pleasant experience even though we played really bad individually and as a team, but you can only improve from that. :) And thank you! I'll try to stream some more meaningful games as well, but I haven't been able to stream during the day/evening, since I usually lag then. But at least I can stream during the night, so that's better than nothing. :)
