New Kings of CS:GO
 | 
United Kingdom Twizzlr 
I think it's safe to say Gambit & Heroic are the two new dominant forces in CS and I personally think Astralis & NaVi's time has passed. The new blood from their respected region is coming up and doing what they were doing 3 years ago playing with great structure and fundamentals as well as phenomenal aim. I feel like these teams style of play is more sustainable however, as it doesn't partially depend on one player (s1mple & dev1ce) performing. I can see these two teams dominating for the foreseeable future like NaVi and Astralis did.

It will be interesting to see how they perform on LAN

If you watch how they both play, you'll see that this form will very easily transfer onto LAN. You can't pin this success on the online era, Gambit & Heroic are head and shoulders above every other team right now.

I don’t think you can watch how they play and then directly transfer it to a LAN environment. They are playing very solid though - that’s why it’ll be interesting

Maybe the first few events will be shaky, as they may be for most teams, but I definitely see these two teams at the top for a long time.

Yeah, that’s a very possible scenario
2021-05-02 22:42
I have this feeling that Heroics aggressive playstyle will transfer more easily to lan. There is just something about Gambit that tells me they are gonna struggle a bit. (In the beginning at least)

They will have to adapt, that's for sure but all that current skill and structure will give them a slight advantage even if they are not as good on lan as they are online

If Gambit manage to acquire AdreN, then they'll definitely win a major.

G2 have a while to go before I will put them in this category. I have to be honest. I would say we are right behind them though.

tbh there is a big gap after gambit and heroic, where a bunch of teams are like g2, navi, furia, vp, liquid and astralis.

Surprisingly, only NaVi, G2 and FURIA have been showing some consistent form out of all these teams.

None teams are showing consistent form other than heoric and gambit atm g2: Blast global final - bad event Blast groups - bad event Katowice - okay but not top tier EPL - okay but not top tier Blast showdown - good event, but was in the easy bracket without the two best teams So from this and to heoric/gambit there is a long way

Gambit are onliners, soon as we go back to LAN it would be Heroic at the top with G2 right alongside them.
2021-05-02 22:43
Astralis maybe yes Navi will still win some tournaments and be contenders,as long as they have s1mple

True, it's very possible, I still think they could have a much better roster if they made one or two small changes.

It will be very hard to be as dominant as Astralis, tbh it probably won't ever be matched but I see these two teams at the top for a while.
2021-05-02 22:44
There wont be domination like we witnessed with Astralis again that late in csgo. Gambit is above Heroic also.

It's very close, but I would favour Gambit most times, that's not to say Heroic aren't equally as capable of tearing them apart too, as they've demonstrated.

It's literally a coin flip as to who wins a series between these two. It's always going to fluctuate as to who's better as it kind of has with Astralis & NaVi. I'd still put my money on Gambit over Heroic right now because a part of me thinks that the loss to Heroic was an anomoly. Hopefully there is another BO5 final soon featuring these two so we can get a better idea of who's superior. It's literally 50/50.
2021-05-02 22:51
+ that bo5 was with 2 new players (1-2 months?) and without HUNDEN. Heroic have not even reached their full potential yet. This year will be INSANE! :)

I dont like how those 2 teams are playing + I dont really like their personalities, except cadian, I can't find any interesting players or players with a pronounced personality who can then provoke sympathy for the player

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..).

The game is always changing and it has certainly changed since these teams were the dominant forces in CS.

yeah CS is evolving at a really fast pace and few can adapt to this. U check CS:GO 2 years ago and now, and its complete different style. I love it I expect one of the best MAJOR's ever in CS.

All that we need for a sick major is Henry and Sadokist casting. Let's hope they come back in time for that. Or maybe some of the other casters will be solid enough to have filled the void.

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

Key word, partially. I think he was integral to their success still. That's why he got the majority of the MVPs with the major wins.
2021-05-02 23:09
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
2021-05-02 23:04
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.
