Perfect Lan locations
Denmark HltvAtWork 
After watching blast over this weekend, i was wondering where a neutral location for a big lan could be hold. I think we danes did a great job cheering for astralis ofc, but would have loved to see a packed stadium for the finale. Booing when machine mentioned shox won the first major was not pretty. Shouting shoot when the vitality players were in a smoke or could be wallbanged not pretty. Otherwise i think the atmosphere were amazing and the heroic astralis game was one of my favoirte games this year. Where would be a perfect location that could give the same atmosphere as blast but without any homecrowd having the majority of fans cheering their favorite team?

Yeah agree, would love a major in Denmark but Danes have a lot of big LANs nearby already (Cologne, Stockholm Major, Royal Arena, Berlin major, Katowice major are all only a few hours away) while Ukrainians and Brazilians have pretty much never had a big event nearby, I think they deserve it at this point. Could be Russia as well but it seems like CS (Na'vi particularly) are more common culture in Ukraine than Russia. I heard they show E-sports at bars in Kiev just like in Copenhagen

Same goes for denmark and the crowd was really great. but I believe there isnt a neutral location for csgo events where the crowd is passionate about cs. For neutral we have cologne and katowice but there are enough events there already... Dont wanna see the same stage for major and the masters event. Then we have good crowd but time difference, that would be brazil, australia and mby Los angeles but there would be time gap for sure which wouldnt be great for EU.

We know how passionate Brazil is, but its same like Denmark, theyll do anything to support their home team I can say, give Major to Australia this time ? IEM Sydney always produce good crowd and event, and realistically OCE team will not make it that far (except Renegades Berlin) so the crowd is not going to be a problem or maybe Portugal

Italy ? How many Italians play CS ? I dont see much of them on HLTV. Arent they all hyper social and extroverted all the time from what I saw from vacation in here ? Going outside every day with friends to sit somewhere late into the night, going to the beach, some of them plays football almost all day, preparing their delicious Italian food. I cant imagine big LAN in Italy

Italy is weird. We had a pretty good cs community in early 2000. We didn't have good results internationally (WCG and Nations Cup were always a stump) but at least we had multiple yearly lans with a lot of people (SMAU ILP, NGI Lan, ANVI Bologna). With CSGO, everything died. I really think the audience is there but there is not just any will in even bringing some smaller event to the country. A couple of weeks ago we had the gamesweek in Milan and it was packed.
