unless 2018 astralis come back :D
Na Vi had era if faze era is coming
I don't know what you're talking about, FAZE won the last 3 big events, one of which was a major.
Just using this opportunity to say: Navi had no era.
process of analytical work has been perfected, as soon as one team does something everyone is doing it and everyone already has several reads and counters to it.
Also with so much info being shared about self improvement within the game players are pretty much on the same level, process of learning to aim and play positions is streamlined.
There used to be an insane gap between good players and the rest, now every team has 3 players who can be that star player but it depends on who gets which positions and which positions get pressured more.
That's not to diminish what people did previously in CSGO, it used to be the pinnacle at the time.
But right now it seems that we are edging on what's humanly possible, and with that requiring stupid amount of work it's basically about work ethics and pressure - no one can work 24/7 365 days a year so it's about syncing up entire squads and their burnouts to not happen when it matters.
It's about timing, how much to prac, how much to rest and pug, how much to go on vacation.
To be fair, that is something that we will never know until it happens...
And I hope it stays that way. One team winning everything for a year+ gets boring quick
SAW era will dawn upon us
Tbh no need for "era" to define team excellence at all. In which other sport do you see talk of "era" as much as in csgo? Prime astralis really set the bar way too high for what a generational team is
game has aged too much and too well now, teams have picked up the ability to adapt and do it quickly. These days its hard to see the same teams within 5 ranks of eachother beating the same team twice in a row.
Bro FaZe won the last 3 big events, if they keep winning its their era.
I think we can said that now is a faze little era ;p
4 big tournament in a row mean somethings :P
But i feel so bad for navi. Imagine have war in your country and keep your minds on servers.
They are such a badass youngsters.
no eras is the best for cs
so many great or potentially great teams
Never is a big statement :)
well we ve been in this position before and there is always that teams that figures something out in the meta and edges out everyone
fnatic gonna have new era krimz and mezii 2v5
Doesn't mean that 1 team won't dominate in the future. It's all about how much tryharding a team is willing to do.
S1mple and Na'Vi are 25% worse than last year and they lost this Major, otherwise they could have won it.
Nobody ever thought that winning the CL since it has that name back-to-back could happen and then Real Madrid won it 3 times in a row.
Nobody thought that Federer would ever find someone better but then came Nadal and Djokovic.
In gaming nobody won the International in Dota 2 years in a row, till OG did it.
navi just had one for almost a year, which got cancelled by half of the teams home country being invaded.
before that gambit was the undisputed nr.1 for half a year which marked the end of the online era. and before the online era there was the astralis era.
faze now has won katowice, epl, the major and might win dallas aswell.. we havent seen faze keep its peak consistently but very well might do so. the thing with faze is that they can still get upset, but so could astralis aswell, but they are still winning.
everything is going against your point.
Just a #bump to remind you all about the current era.
Theres only been 1 era in CS and that was Astralis era
Of course there will never be an Astralis agian
would be really good for me.
The competitive scene is much more exciting, when you dont have 1 team winning everything for a long amount of time.
EG will have an era of eternal trash, unfortunately :(
evil genius era incomeing!! i believe in our god and saviour steweie0.5k
Nah, when there are no eras this means that cs level is going down
Hello, once again I want to take the opportunity to remind you, that we are in the "era of no eras". Although I believe, FaZe can still easily win this. Nontheless: The competition is way to close for having a true era.
Wdym, there is Stand-in era rn
