Let's leave onliners vs LAN discussion
their firepoewr is good imo
Ax1le has been in a slump but I also think more T1 has learned to antistrat them and make it competitive
just add sunny for firepower
i don't have an opinion since i don't watch their games.
Don't be hurry, they've only played 4-5 lan tournaments , they have skill , they are young , they worked harder than last time : won faze clan , didn't lose much against vitality . Let give them more time
honestly i think sh1ro just needs a bit more experience (yes i know he's had quite a bit so far but he needs a bit more). ax1le is good but seems to get impatient and play rash (just from what I've seen). hobbit is a legend but has been missing some days, like you said. hes always been quite consistent so hopefully he rebounds. honestly i think they just need some more time in the oven. oh and maybe they should change their strats a bit, they seem to be getting read a lot more. just my 97 cents
Gambits have obvious problems, but drawing conclusions from close game, where everything was decided in the last 2 additional rounds is too much.
Vitality could have lost
I think they've likely capped in terms of team potential at the moment, though they could resurge. I'm not sure of any players on the CIS market at the moment.
Ax1le is not as good as before
This is not an online vs LAN discussion like you said. They almost got 2-0'd by Faze and fnatic, but they won in 2nd map's overtime and then won the series in both matches. And then against Vitality, they came back from 11-4 in the last map and almost won the series. If a few rounds went differently then they could have been in the semis rn. They obviously have a strong mentality and they don't seem to give up, or get pressured on LAN.
Obviously they are not a top1 team anymore like they used to be in early 2021, but they are still a solid top5 team even on LAN. They're going in the right direction and I think they might win a LAN someday with more experience.
sh1ro struggles? he's been hard carrying. ax1le and h0bbit being shit is their only problem.
nafany calls are the main problem tbh
he struggles a lot recently
they need to take some time off the game if anything
these kids live in the bootcamp facility for a 1.5 years now, they need to reset and recalibrate, get used to their current status. also understanding that teams like Navi and Astralis didn't become dominant in a day is the key, it was a long ass road filled with chokes, unlucky tournaments, etc
The biggest mistake Gambit could make is changing how they play. The game with Vitality was 100% 50-50, and on another day Gambit win and move on and no doubt ever creeps in. ofc CSGO has an unlimited skill ceiling, so they cannot just NOT change anything ever, you are basically always evolving in this game.
It is VERY EASY to change for the worse, but VERY HARD to change for the better, when you are already at the top or near it. You can't look at results alone. You could do everything absolutely right in a game and still end up losing. Check the process, and if the process still is sound and solid, there is no worry: the results will come to you.
Their real problem is not having me in the roster. Add me and ez top-10 guaranteed 😎
Honestly, They are quite ez to read now but this could be fixed with better coach and some analitics and the other thing is, some of the players get tilted really easy and this is the bigger problem because this thing makes entire team play worse.
