It seems like chemistry triumphed ngl FaZe rly looked like era alike Astralis team, they just understand their intentions well and are able to find solutions very quickly while NaVi sticked to plan till the end FaZe gave trust to star player which won them unseparable game. You couldve seen that everyone from NaVi slowed down on map 5 while FaZe wasnt done yet

Yes but their "era" is credited with being in 2018, it ended in 2019 despite the two Majors. Apart from those two Majors, Liquid and Team Vitality won the majority of other events. Winning two Majors alone doesn't automatically equate to having an "era", otherwise LG/SK's era would be certified and not contested. Astralis were not the same era-defining dominant team in 2019 like they were in 2018 but were still the best team in the world at that time, having a nice resurgence towards the end of the year.
2022-07-18 21:11

Astralis was dominant for the first third of 2019, then they started to skip events and got dethroned by TL (and once they came back they proved it was all just ring rust and they were still the best by far) I'd agree that their era ended once TL officially overtook them but that was only in late May/June so their era lasted well into 2019
2022-07-18 22:47

That's fair enough and I agree, my comment was more toward the "two Majors" point anyway. Like with fnatic, it's arguable that their era extends from 2014 to 2015 from 2015 to the start of 2016 depending on which fnatic fan you ask. Otherwise, fnatic era was late-2014 and throughout 2015.

"Otherwise, fnatic era was late-2014 and throughout 2015." that's objective fact tbh (though really it should've been mid-2014 but the whole DHW fiasco fucked that up), Fnatic changed rosters after Cluj-Napoca so there's no way one could justify any continuity to the era achieved by the roster with pronax + imho era definitely ends if the team in question fucks up at a major, no matter how dominant they were at other events
2022-07-18 23:00

Yeah, the Cluj-Napoca loss definitely killed fnatic and then had a little bit of a resurgence with dennis, but the fnatic era was definitely with Pronax, not dennis.

yeah against terrible competition. If FaZe went 87-0 against tier 4 NA teams, nobody would call that an era. NiP essentially did that, sure they beat some decent teams, but 90% of those 87 straight wins were against teams who were straight garbage that never went on to do anything in CSGO.

No. This era thing seems subjective, but imo to define an era you need at least 2 majors, and another big tournament win like a Cologne or Katowice. NaVi was similar to Liquid in 2019, they had a very hot streak, but they also had no competition. As soon as another team was competitive in 2022 they haven't been able to win nearly as much, and haven't won any era defining events, major, cologne katowice. Blast Spring finals is an S Tier event, but it's not something that anyone will care about in two years.

Nip had 1 major only, so nip has no era? Liquid has no major, Navi has one major. Navi is was top 1 team of that year, liquid wasn't.

NaVi only dominated the 2nd season of 2021, FaZe dominated the first season of 2022, so the time period is basically identical. I would rate FaZe's 2022 slightly higher than NaVis 2021, as FaZe won the four most important events of the year so far, Kato, EPL, Major, Cologne. FaZe also beat NaVi in two of those events. NaVi won the major, cologne, blast world finals, so it's close, but NaVi had no competition, G2 were so far behind them that NaVi never really had to dig deep to win.
2022-07-18 21:41

Fair points made. Though I would still argue it's far too soon to call any "era" as of right now, especially with how well Na'Vi is playing alongside FaZe Clan.

Yeah I wouldn't call either run an era. If FaZe finish out the year and win the Rio Major, and some of the other big events, EPL, Blast Fall and Global finals, then I'd probably consider it an era. Certainly it would be one of the most dominant single years from a team.

not even close, it's not even an era, it's a hot streak that ended as soon as another competitive team emerged in FaZe. Had Ropz been able to join FaZe in 2021, it's obvious that NaVi wouldn't have won nearly as much.

Not quite... The 87-0 wasn't an "unfair advantage" at all, they were just one of the first teams to make the jump, alongside two Swedish players from Source. It doesn't matter what the excuse is, the matter of fact is that NiP were the first ever team to dominate the game to the point of creating a long-lasting era, then came fnatic and then sooner or later, Astralis.

only team to have an era is astralis. faze being the number one team sporadically throughout a few months doesnt mean theyre in an era. nip/fnatic also had an era together during 2013-2015, but other than that no one comes close.

Faze might have started an era, but we cannot say that yet because an era is established by being dominant for a few years (+1.5 years in my opinion) and being 10 steps ahead of everyone. Faze hasn't achieve that yet and Navi is really close to them, so I doubt we can call it an era yet

if you are going to call FaZe 2022 an era, you might as well add NAVI 2021, BIG 2020, Gambit early 2021

Sk did have a dominant phase and they won 2 majors back to back. I consider that good enough for an era. I somewhat agree that NaVi didnt have an era however NaVi was consistently a top 2/1 team since 2021 competing first with Gambit then Heroic and now with Faze. Its unfortunate that they haven't won as many trophies to show their player potential but every tournament NaVi enters they are expected to win.
