bro, the fact that half the reviews said that the documentary was just shit, not at all good, and altogether bad, and the other half were just creationists who are clearly misguided through thinking everything said is literal, means that the documentary is clearly just shit and basically creationist propaganda made to stir up and effectively make money (through the documentary), and everything about it is sketchy and could have easily been faked, such as cave drawings that could just be drawn just before the camera was turned on.

I love this topic so much :D so many theories and even just hypotheses around the truth and only a few understand the reality of our existence. Funny that there is even such theory, which I call absolute delusion without even thinking much.

Denmark psntsn89
Well in Denmark people motivate younger generations to pursue e-sports aswell as any other sports nowadays. We even got schools which are focused on e-sports. From what I know we also have a lot of smaller "clubs" playing in tier 3+ or whatever you wanna call it, one of my friends used to play "pro" back in the days. He's now retired if you can call it that, but he played for a few clubs and with some of the "bigger" names. Don't know about your second statement though.

Nice sentiment, but I have to disagree. Lots of great countries to live in around here, while not perfect everywhere close to perfect is found in many places not just in Iceland and here. I really struggle to see what makes us stand out from the others that it makes a difference when it comes to CS. My best serious, as opposed to my #85, is that we have a good foundation like in many nations and that the success of Astralis and others has meant eSports is sort of main stream here = more people playing so more success which again makes more people play...

Could be true also. I won't claim to know enough on how it is for average people in Brazil, but I can imagine we are maybe privileged in comparison when it comes to access to gaming PC's. I think part of it is also just timing, for one the pandemic has made for a 1½ year where a lot of people here had to stay at home instead of being out and about ie. more time for gaming and that sort of happened just after Astralis happened. Could be that had people been living as normal, then things would be different and when SK was big people were not asked to stay at home.

yeah people can't really afford gaming PCs here. A decent one would be like... 3 average monthly salaries for a brazilian (?). Most people can't even think about it.

Yes, culture and environment plays a part, but also Danish CS produced much more good IGLs than any other country, that surely plays a part, plus Danish players are used to play in an environment where strats matter very much. For instance, Denmark produced Hunden, and Hunden produced gla1ve, the best IGL ever. Have you ever noticed how NO FUCKING ONE follows the steps of Fallen? Even with him being such a great IGL? Our CSGO scene lives off of young players aiming, cursing and stupid swag shit. We have a team filled with great players in which both the coach and the IGL don't even have a fucking stratbook.

This^^. CS has been huge in Denmark basically since it released and a lot of people has played it for many years. Compared to many other countries we have a lot of spare time outside of school so a lot of people, including myself, spend some of that playing counter strike. It is not uncommon for kids to maybe play 6-8 hours every day while keeping up with school. And if you are good, there is basically no risk trying out pro cs for some years and then starting university or whatever after if it doesnt work out.

You should read something about history. Denmark is in fact one of the most important western nations. Also one of the oldest western nations, and people. Not sure if you just don't know any better, or if its copium since you are from Norway.. Norway is not as old. and was a part of Denmark longer than it has been Norway. ( and not as in Danes was controlling Norway ) Norway was just an other part of Denmark. And when Norway got their freedom from the Swedes, they choose a danish prince to be their king because of it. And also the danish royal family is the oldest in the world. and has ties all over. so by choosing a dane to be king of Norway gave Norway more legitimacy. But, in terms of history, also world history Danes has a very important place if you are not trolling and just don't know your history. :) ( also before you start attacking me instead of the points, no I am not danish. I just love facts, history and science. )

One has to remember to accept you can learn something anywhere at all times. Can even learn things from things that are wrong, as long as you take the time to understand what you learn, to know what is wrong and is not. Learning something truly is not achieved before you not only understand the truths of it, but also the false. because understanding is in between the fact and fantasy. Truth is easy, facts are easy. it can only be what it is, even if no human believes in it, a fact is a fact, it does not change to the whims of man. To understand facts, information, truths. that is the hard part. because that takes work. Something most humans wont do. and why so many say so much, and understand so little.

I think Denmark has a lot of things going for it specifically in cs:go like many said the cultue is true to some extend where it's an accepted job to play cs:go (esports in general) people love the game there are many pros to look up to (sort of a positive circle) and you can even study esport and csgo if you want as well as join a team like a sports team. The weather is generally cold so a lot of the free time is spent indoors. A lot of other countries have very good players and many good teams. i think genrally esport is getting more recognized in the world so it might not be too special anymore but still the early start on the whole esports project, a nice system, a love for the game, a population that like to stay inside a lot and a good economy for the average person is good reciepe for success.

Coincidence. Nationality doesn't have anything to do with this. Sweden was always regarded one of "the best nations" of CS, yet they failed to produce a young talent since like 2017, when the conditions have been better than ever. The only thing that gave scandinavian countries a tiny advantage was wealth&openminded culture, but that was only relevant years ago. CIS and Brazil is starting to take over now, while being completely different than Denmark or Sweden. Teams just get good, and it's pretty much a coincidence that so many good players are from Denmark. I can guarantee you that 3 years from now some other nation will have stunningly many great players, 5 years from now another nation will "dominate" in terms of the number of good players.

It is the food and the water, as in everyone knows a Danish is delicious only we have the original only it is inspired by baking by Viennese bakers so we call it wienerbrød. kogebog.dk/images/show_images/34/2018/9/.. And tap water here is good that it rivals the best bottled water, that makes for both just nice water to drink and nice water to make our beer.

Culture, it's mostly culture. CS:GO and other eSports have more respect from them so naturally you foster talent for whatever people see as a viable pathway in life. It's the same in any other region, example: South Korea and Starcraft: Broodwar. PC Bang culture allowed people to play Broodwar in a social environment, which led to competition and tournaments. It grew from there to a televised aspect since it was so popular along with all other forms of gaming, mostly driven by PC Bang culture. Televised events led to pro teams lead to cultural backing for the game which allowed people to pursue it as a path in life and they were supported by the ecosystem around it. This happens for any place where the culture supports the activity, it's evolution and growth. Which is why the NA scene for CS will probably not recover because the culture for CS is being removed from it.

in climatic terms not, northern germany/europe and southern scandinavia are part of the same climate zone. the very north of scandinavia looks different that's true. but this urban myth "swedes all sit at home and play pc games because long dark winters" is too much of a meme because most swedes live in the south. and for danish people especially that's not true.

We have very easy access to high-end computers and internet. Esports is also taught in schools now and Scandinavia as a whole has huge potential because of those reasons mentioned, Sweden are beast as well. Esports is huge here now, and has been so for some time, so we have family support as well, unlike other countries where you are expected to do well in school and get a high-end job, since there seems to be no other options in their parent's minds, they're not very openminded. We also have a very good safety net as well, always something to fall back on if it couldn't work out in most cases. We have a very good environment to devolop skilled players pretty much.

Yes, Astralis used to in the national news constantly during their era from 2017/18-2020, they're considered celebs, especially amongst young people, mostly among those who play video games, but the name Astralis usually rings a bell with most people. They have been visited by the Danish prime minister before, and is almost recognized as a national team (in csgo of course).

2021-10-18 19:05
They can't compete on real sports so they jumped to the esports wagon before the rest so they can be relevant until the rest of the countries catched up. Really, I don't know how, but if I see a danish or swedish in a game, I know he's gonna top frag, unless it's Olof.

I think this interview helps understand why. hltv.org/news/32361/shakezullah-any-of-u.. Shakezullah talks about how in NA the level of competition is simply lower so they get away with things you wouldn’t be able to do in Europe. It means when bnb play European teams they get spanked. Denmark have had a very strong local scene historically and that means to compete within the scene you have to play at a very high level. There will be other factors as well but this keeps them at the top.
