yeah..i get what you mean. most of my enjoyment was emotional as in, i was rooting for faze and faze was winning. now that i think about it there weren't many times where i was like, "wow thats good counter strike." it was mainly the storyline
+1 Navi were not 100% that was 20%
It was fun to watch, but mostly Inferso
One of the most boring finals. Happy for Karrigan though
People like you can never be contended with however the game goes. The players aren’t gonna do a handstand or start doing pushups in between rounds just to make it entertaining for you.
Learn how to enjoy the game rather than complaining at each and everything.
No wonder you’re one of those kids throwing in suggestions for roster rebuilds even if a team loses a single match.
kinda agree, i mean besides that Navi catch the fire on inferno T sides this series are pretty much one sided. it just Rain and Karriggan show overall.
This is what you get for saying -rain for such a long time, he made it quick and stomped them.
karrigan was pure genius in the inferno map....not so much on Nuke, but great nonetheless.
This just solidifies Karrigan as one of the greatest to ever play the game.
saying this just cause navi lost? lol
it was a great final
agree that nuke was a bit party pooper. i was hoping for 3 OT's
it was great
even though i didn't watch it
nah f off nuke was really entertaining aswell, especially watching rain completely destroy navi on outside as CT and on T Side.
NAVI couldn't do anything in Nuke because it was raining outside.
Navi was bad in the game vs Heroic as well. Ence was too weak and got countered hard so Navi looked ok. In the final if Faze didn't choke/throw on CT it should be an even quicker 2-0 (with Navi getting 1 digit each map)
Ya this major wasn't too good...
I think it’s about average
IDC how faze won major. It's good to avoid team like Navi. My heart was racing more than the quarterfinal against NIP when Navi reached match point in inferno. Faze is lucky that Navi picks Nuke as 2nd map instead of Ancient or some other in which they are beast. I'm not bitching about faze, they are a world-class team right now, nor I'm saying that Navi got suddenly affected by war right in major finals but not till semis.
Inferno was an absolute POGGERS of a map
But yeah nuke fell flat
I'm never fully satisfied if a final doesn't go to decider but Inferno was really entertaining to watch though but I think this major had quite few very interesting close games, Stockholm had a couple more for sure.
Na'vi started of very badly 0-8 or what it was, some close rounds not going their way. They somehow found their way in the second half mostly thanks to b1t and Perfecto but couldn't close it out and Faze went into the OT with momentum on their side. Had this feeling something like that could happen on nuke, they just didn't show up, somehow managed to claw those 5 rounds on tside, but that pistol buy from Faze at 12-8 mentally finished them IMO. Until that point it was a pretty interesting final. Then they just kept buying and basically gave up towards the end. Shame Na'vi didn't show up like they did in semifinals or we would at least get three maps. Boombl4 was absent, s1mple not even close to his best, electroNic up and down. Only b1t and Perfecto had good series. I would pick ancient for second map in their place, but I'm guessing they were sure it was going to three maps.
Honestly, the playoffs as a whole was a fucking banger. faze nip was insane up to the very end when nip started to choke and nerves. Everyone thought faze might lose when nip went like 5-0 or something. faze spirit had an insane d2 and magixx popped the fuck off it was crazy. navi heroic. Navi legit would've lost 0-2 had elec not won that 1v3. And simple playing that bad was something else.
Sure, nuke wasn't impressive in the slightest but inferno at least lived up to that hype.
i was hoping for s1mple to pop off but he seemed off for some reason...
gotta disagree, on inferno navi's almost comeback and then faze closing it was peak cs. great stuff. nuke could have been closer but the cs was still good
+1 navi played so shit faze dominated them sooo easily not really a nice grand final imo
broky was insane on inferno, hands down :)
Yeah, rain was just too good. He definitely went to specsavers.
I don't think it was a bad final for major standards, but I also expected more. Inferno delievered and Nuke apart from rain just bullying people wasn't that interesting. I can't help but feel that NaVi really should have gone for D2 instead of Nuke.
Yea I know what you mean, and Ancient as decider wouldn't have been great too, because it is to much CT sided and you want POG maps, like Mirage/Dust2.
I kinda hated the Nuke pick because I was already afraid this would have happened.
Yes, it was rather boring; however, it was still more enjoyable than Astralis era finals with teams like Avangar
