Astralis 0-2 to 3-2?

Chances are pretty good imo, paiN should be ez win considering the way the tier70 game they just played against sharks and then it's just about not getting heroic or ence n the 2-2 matchup

Yeah their run is still very likely at this point

I'd pick asstrails, their experience will win them this game. Spirit already looked tilted in VP game, so I'd say experience> skill in this game. Asstrails just need to get a few rounds in a row and that is a win
2021-10-29 09:30
Ence is gonna win BIG lol.

why would it be delusional? they have made pretty deep runs in the last 2 lans they played, even with all the shit thats been the lineup changes, and then its a major, they prolly have the most experience of all of the rosters playing rn, only natural to expect em to go deep thinking that they will win it tho, is certainly delusional that I will admit

what exactly is your definition of a deep run? mine is, deep run = semis and I think thats impossible with Lucky, should have played with Bubzkji

Are we really can tell if they are THAT shit at the moment? Their "run" at the moment pretty much looks like this: Day 1 - 2 lost bo1's games, against teams that both qualified for Legends Stage winning against teams like Heroic and BIG. Both bo1 games played on the maps they wouldn't go normally. First LAN event for Lucky, first LAN match for glaive after the break. Day 2 - solid one sided win in bo3 against GODSENT. In my opinion there is a room to play with and a ramp to get some confidence back, the core of the team is still there and it would be really not fair to underestimate them on Major LAN.
2021-10-28 16:22
Do you have negative IQ? lmao another moron who doesn´t understand roles, even if lucky is a trash awper compared to dev1ce.

no awper is better than an shit awper which gives free kills away all the time, it couldnt get even worse they just had to beat br teams now. bubzkji would have played 10 times better than lucky but keep being delusional

Its not only about how much more kills would bubzski do instead of Lucky. But how that roster move would afect the performances of the remaining 4 players on the roster. But you are to dumbfuck to realize that. So keep on making start player lineups with players you think that can kill.

I am talking about the affect on the other players and not the kills. Especially for an awper you need to get frags but you say without any reason that they would have done worse with bubz. I say it again it cant get worse than losing 6-16 twice and then beating an br team lmao do you want to say they would have lost to godsent if bubzkji played xd

2021-10-28 16:22
The difference is that its very typical for Astralis to always win their first few games, even when doing badly in the end. We do not see Astralis doing lower bracket runs, which this essentially is. This Astralis does not give out confidence of the old.
2021-10-27 22:20
Why not make the assumption? They were 2 rounds away to making finals in cologne No one knew they will play like shit suddenly
2021-10-27 22:06
1 reply
I didnt make those assumptions before the major started. I actually had them 3-0 in my pick em but I changed it during the first match vs CPHF to FaZe 3-0 and put them to qualify at least. They did poorly vs both CPHF and Entropiq and now they have just to win vs 2 BR teams to get 2-2 and then its one Bo3 probably vs Mouz which is really bad aswell.

Astralis were not in the challenger stage, then called the main qualifier, at Atlanta. They were in the playoffs in the major prior to Eleague, which meant that they didn't have to qualify for the next.

I mean, paiN were close to beat Virtus.Pro if they didn't lose to eco on 14-14. and then lose 16x14 to renegades aswell. I think paiN can put up a fight against Astralis, especially now that they're not looking great

I mean yeah, it was an era but a pretty inconsistent one. This is coming from a bonafide Astralis fan so i'm definitely not underestamating the era, i'm just a bit sad because of the current situation which i feel is the final nail in the coffin. The whole Astralis brand has become a marketing tool rather than an esport org at this point.

They won a major, then bombed out on the next one. They one lots of tournaments and 2 majors, then they played like crap for half a year until the bErlin major where they won again. I'd call that inconsistent, not because of a lack of skill though. Just motivation, health factors and roster changes.

After the period with Astralis being lightyears ahead of Liquid who were lightyears ahead of everyone else, the scene has become pretty tuff! There are "no surprises" or big "upsets" anymore between top 50 teams. In my opinion, that is. We are of course not looking at the same Astralis anylonger. They had a rough period regarding the lineup. yes, the "system" works well, but without Dev1ce they are of course not as strong as before. Top 30 teams taking them out? Astralis reaching Champion stage anyways? I of course hope they make it, but certainly no surprise if not.
2021-10-28 12:29
They will probably win their 2-2 match up. I hope for heavens sake not, but playing 2 times against a shit team when they could have been eliminated is just shit mens( First Godsent and now Pain, they are so lucky, but I hope Pain can over perform one tine now. Else it will be Spirit or VP. And I hope it will be Spirit and they pick Dust 2 so they can do their 16-0 for real this time :)
