It will be interesting to see how they perform on LAN
Astralis maybe yes
Navi will still win some tournaments and be contenders,as long as they have s1mple
Neither team has won against O PLANO yet
IEM Cologne is in 2 months, just wait for lan and will see those 2 semi-finalist team in LAN tournament's...
There wont be domination like we witnessed with Astralis again that late in csgo. Gambit is above Heroic also.
Gambit looks like a really strong team, can't wait to see them and others on LAN.
boring teams, hope this "era" will end soon
true, young guns too fast and good.
There is a new generation of players coming and teams like astralis, team liquid, Na'Vi, FNC, old squads, are outdated. Worse is how they blame the game and dip out, instead of investing in young motivated players (hello Bad news bears, C9, 100T.. EnvY..).
If these are the dominators of the cs, I prefer to go blind, I refuse to say goodbye to the best rivalry of the cs, the most emblematic and historical teams of the cs, I do not want to see a final Gambit vs Heroic Major, I would definitely fall asleep, but Well, you have to see how they are in the lanes, because to be the best you have to win lanes
astralis? most likely, but navi still has it. they were very dominant on dust2 today and i think they lack the map pool gambit has. like prime astralis gambit has an amazing map pool. Their permaban is Nuke which is a strong map for alot of teams such as heroic, astralis, navi, complexity and vitality. they just really lack the experience and cant really close out maps. i think they will drop off to top5-7 during lans and will most likely not win the major in stockholm.
same with heroic. i think navi will b favourites during hte major if they can sort out their IGL problem and map pool
Astralis was never dependent on Device during their era
Navi is not over yet, Astralis can take a break, if he wants, but Navi cannot, he has to win majors, he is a historic team and he cannot have any
Now that Tarik and Ethan have left EG there is no hope for that roster.
They are the 2 best teams now ofc, watch out for Navi,Nip,G2 tho. I also have high hopes for the new OG lineup, Faze and mouz also might be better in some time.
