CS is at its most boring

I honestly don't know how to describe my thoughts perfectly but, I feel like the majority of teams playing in t1 tournaments are playing like absolute garbage . If you don't know what i mean, just look at the rankings. Any of the t1 teams outside of the top 5 can and will play like they belong in a tier lower. Some examples : mouz, spirit, col, furia. The list goes on And i guess you can say that since most teams have unpredictable performances, that makes watching cs in this era fun, and I can kind of agree with that. But for me personally, I dont really find it fun to watch two teams playing at their worst. And of course, the fact that most of 2021 is online, doesn't really help

+1 Also to the op, none of those teams mentioned are in the top 10 so it’s sort of expected that they will be inconsistent.

You can say same stuff about LAN, everything that we knew goes to crap and suddenly teams like Heroic and Gambit suck while teams like Astralis and G2 play very well

I agree to some extent, but I also feel like it's better than ever before since the meta and the structure etc. is constantly developing even further than before. New teams are constantly pushing the boundaries and making it better and better (a couple of examples of teams like these could be BIG, Heroic, Gambit). I still agree on the stability part you mentioned; there really aren't any actually stable teams and there are constantly upsets happening and it feels like almost no team can get proper grip of the situation for a longer period of time.

I kinda agree that cs is not the most exciting rn but in my opinion that is more due to the current meta, not due to teams playing badly. The quality of cs has never been this high, it's just that the meta doesn't excite me at all
2021-09-19 23:01
Me I kinda stopped watching half way into the online era. Just isn't the same without the excitement of a big LAN

Its just the new generation mixed with online cs the old heads cant be the guys forever. New blood will come always
2021-09-19 23:03
We will se on LAN

Utility kills the flow out of the game since everyone has mastered it.

definitely less exciting. CIS teams have been really good, but other than that- NA scene is dead, European teams like BIG, Faze, NIP etc are just irrelevant. G2, Vitality & Heroic are too inconsistent. I also feel that average player age of the scene has gone up. There are not many budding prodigies anymore.

oh yeah it totally has nothing to do with the fact past 2 years have been a rollercoaster for cs and pretty much every team keeps reshuffling players, not to mention the overall competition level being at its peak, how could it be? cs literally never been as packed as it is right now and the fact the teams u mentioned play worse than the top ones can easily change in matter of months. gambit were literally nobodies playing tier3 24/7 then they went on 9 finals streak in less than a year, vitality dominated 2020 then went back to shit and now slowly coming up to top3 teams again, navi are on their rise, even faze are waking up. nip as well, although they had and still have a shit ton of problems if u compare what they used to be 1-1.5 years ago now they are on next level, mouz are on the edge of another reshuffle (i guess), fnatic just built a new team too its evolving but u cant say its boring just cuz some teams are playing worse than the best in the world, major will define it more clearly and then after christmas player break we will most likely have yet another batch of crazy team changes, but overall its only getting better

+1 I think the unpredictability of teams right now are more exciting than if we had some sort of era.

LANs will help but, there’s barely any international play which for me is always appealing. I feel like in a few years it’ll just be Europe (Eu/CIS). With Team Liquid and maybe a Brazilian team.
