almost complete bull crap, and we all know the reason behind it.
-Navi, about to collapse into tier 2 or barely 1 (kicking 3 players who have been there for years)
-"outsiders" (-buster -yekindar ... not that it makes a difference since they weren't going to take any titles anyways)
-g2 ... nothing hltv doesnt know about
-astralis and vitality... disappointing results
-fnatic... basically tier 3 at this point with all these nonsense changes. might aswell sell the entire roster.
-liquid + shox..........
-eg... ultra disappointing but everyone knows including the players. i dont think there's a need of -brehze and -cerq but they are washed rn and have no motivation. unless that changes, they'll have to go and get someone to igl instead of stewie
-mouz has two vac banned players now also -nbk for no rational reason
-og is finished lmao but idk if it's an upgrade they don't have aleksib anymore
-eternal fire was a good team on paper, but i dont really think they can do good at this rate, their vibes are ruined and imorr is blatantly throwing games on challengers'. makes you wonder if they made themselves tilted on purpose to mask matchfixing. to be fair, they'd get more money by doing that than actually winning games at the major.
there's been some chaos lately, this player shuffle really messed things up for some teams. liquid is the only team i believe in, which is ironic but they do look more promising than astralis at least.
And now there's gonna be another shuffle because post major. Which is bad because teams will never be consistent like this. That's literally how navi got to #1. flamie was a pain to carry and b1t literally fixed everything. Even at the grand final he was the only one tryharding. It says a lot about him
There have been some good changes though:
-faze +ropz (even though I'm not a fan of faze, it's a disgusting organization on how they even got the roster in the first place. Wish it had been mousesports but you can't get everything can you) was definitely a good asset for the roster and he got reunited with karrigan
-g2 +m0nesy, this guy still needs to develop but it's a direct huge upgrade from amanek who wasn't a main awper and had to improvise and practice awp. There's still a missing piece to the team though. a good igl who can lead niko and make him shine
-liquid +nitro and +osee, still needs some time to shine
-the entire imperial roster. idk why you people call them a "meme" roster, i know that no one expected them to perform but they have, the point was just to reunite and compete again instead of stealing paychecks... also, on paper, this is a really insane team. How can you say it's a bad team? vini was in furia, he's young. boltz, not young but not old either, and he does have the skill to compete... fer monster, this guy exceeded all expectations. fallen was just about in liquid before so why would he be washed? fnx is a bit washed, yes, and i'd argue he's the only one that could be replaced. But then again, why? it's the last dance for a reason.
-bad news eagles are insane, the fact that they got to legends stage says a lot. it's not an fpl stack, the entire team is in synergy with one another.
-complexity is a solid roster on paper. let's hope they'll keep grinding. reminds me of 2019 EG for some reason
So actually, it's not looking too grim, pun intended, but it's very messy.
Let's hope the rio major gives us better competition.
