Who do you think will win the upcoming major in November? I personally think that Astralis will somehow win it again. Though I hope Na'Vi wins it so s1mple gets atleast 1 major lol. /discuss

Rather thanks to the entire team agreeing to bench their IGL sexyb, but that's in the past, staying bitter at them for doing that is dumb. Even though it is the biggest blunder in terms of a roster change in recent CS history I reckon.

G2 - can't win a major, their team isn't sophisticated enough imo. Gambit - would be a shocker for sure, but definetly could happen Na'Vi - atm they're the favorites, the favorites usually don't win (Astralis wasn't the favorite at Berlin, remember, it was Liquid, and they just got outbrained by Astralis picking Vertigo lol)

Hard to say atm. I doubt Astralis can win it. They have still the mentality but they lack of skill to win it. I doubt we will have a surprise team like Ence.

Analyst when the Stanislaw and daps move happened they said that this was the most tragic move ever. Sure eg were able to win some events, but that was off the back of the frag power they have. Complexity is basically what Valorant is doing back in 2018 to 2019 where they gather all the rejects. When you get enough rejects your bound to win a major, he never reached the play-offs either, so I wouldn't say he helped them in the major. Saying that he isn't a runner is absurd, Team liquid kicked cause he is shit, optic dropped him the first time because he couldn't deal with a better Igl on the team. He got kicked from optic again because the team hated each other and he didn't do anything about it. Also Eg didn't even make it into groups for iem cologne so to say that they are gonna be major winners is the most delusional thing you've said so far, the rest is your own opinion. I would agree with you but then we would be both wrong and delusional.

The only team where he didint get results what were expected was liquid, when he got kicked from optic the team didint realise how much stan did for the team, after that ngl he had to leave that team. Cuz he already got kicked ones from that team so if things turn bad he would get kicked. Yea thinking that is 100% that they will win major is crazy, but i think that they can upset some teams and after that u never know what will happen

Navi are promising, but as an Australian I would like to see Extremum, Mousesports or renegades to win so Ana isn't the only person in Australia to win a valve sponsored event. If Faze clan can find their 5th, maybe they could have a chance, Gambit need more Lan experience before they can transfer their online era to lan, Virtus.Pro are not the same team compared to the start of the year, Spirit also, NIP may have a chance, Heroic is a 50/50, G2 will most likely make the playoffs and Vitality need changes to be able to win a major, not sure what it will look like, but something needs to change

Navi are the favorites. Gambit and G2 are major title contenders too. But nothing is sure now, because of player break and roster changes. We need few more events to see the level of the teams. Actually before the major just 3 events left: EPL, Blast and Iem Fall. And the last RMR event I think. If I am not wrong Blast and IEM will be on LAN. So during these 2 LAN events we can see what teams are good and what teams are struggling.

Astralis did good in Cologne, so i see them reaching playoffs. About winning? I am not sure. But I am waiting for them to prove me wrong. Remember the level of the top 10 teams just before Katowice 2020 started? All those teams were almost on the same level you were not sure who will win the event because every team was good and was a title contender for the Katowice 2020. Right now some teams perform good only in online environment some not. Hard to asses their level right now. Maybe 2 or 3 teams are a step ahead of the others. The rest is just the rest. If a lot of teams are in strong form then the tournament becomes interesting to watch. So I am hopping for the teams that are in the slump right now to find their form before the Major.
2021-08-08 07:05
Without device astralis don't have any chances to win major although I'm expecting them to reach atleast semis.

Only team that is not scared of Navi is ASTRALIS. Every other team forgets to play when they play vs S1mple. Worst examples are G2, VP, Gambit. At this point every other team maybe expect liquid is scared of s1mple. They just avoid him all the time. Even niko plays like a scared cat vs s1mple. If LUCKY holds his nerves and do what GOAT gla1ve says and magisk and xyp9x carry then, ASTRALIS becomes deadly.

RNG reached semis because ENCE were on their last dance with aleksi, in ENCE's game vs RNG it didn't even look like they had prepared at all, and RNG were a solid roster already, wasn't a shocker to see them in the quarters and them beating ENCE was expected. AVANGAR was a true underdog, they did ruin the grand final though, just like ENCE at Kato.

Idk man, nobody knows. If it was rn probably One of the top3, most probably NaVi. But 3 months from now, who knows. Perhaps another team will get into that group, maybe One of them Will drop off. I expect NaVi to not to keep this level, as they have a similar problem to FaZe, where they rely mostly on Firepower, in NaVi's case to compensate for lackluster tactics. Not that they Will be bad, just not demolishing almost every team. But you never know if they Will hit another good point on the Major. Also Gambit should improve on LAN and dealing with LAN pressure. I also expect G2 to start dealing with their choking. Also between NIP, CoL perhaps, Heroic, Vitality and even FaZe, One or two of them Will improve into a contender. Not necessarily a favourite to win, but a good consitent team. They can Also be a Dark horse, or just Kick a major player out in the play-offs.

If Na'Vi keeps up current form and spanks Gambit if they have to, it's definitely now or never.

Vita was a contender last year surely with Nivera and RpK but I don’t see them performing with Kyojin and shox as a second star

Well not playing serious at all at the biggest event in a year is not right maybe they could but I see more other teams winning a major than Vita

2021-08-08 18:54
Well S1mple would deserve it but I still hope for Navi Gmabit finals and because I am a Gambit fan I would prefer them to win
2021-08-08 18:54
G2

if NaVi survive the break they will win it 100% Gambit I personally think will get fucked by pressure especially since crowds will be back, and G2 can make a surprise run but I don't think they can beat a primed NaVi in a major
