you know when it’s a era. You feel it when you’re in the era. Like with astralis
It's a different definition for everybody.
For me, it is a period of dominance that attributes to both "type of dominance" + "length of dominance" and a team to achieve both of those factors has era-defining dominance, which I only count three teams of ever achieving, being NiP, fnatic and Astralis, respectively.
Other teams have come close but usually only by having one of the two factors, making their "era" contested by quite a lot of users: LG/SK, Na'Vi, Team Liquid, Virtus.Pro, FaZe Clan and Gambit, to name a few.
EDIT: General corrections.
Igs + major + lots of other events
Imo, it means roughly 6-9 months in the top 3, and one of the following
- 2 Major titles
- 1 Major and 1 Grand Slam
- 1 Major and making the grand finals of nearly every S/A tier tournament of the season
Era is something that astralis achieved
Top 1 HLTV for 52 weeks. It means that they at least won 2 majors and were competitive in other tournaments.
I only know one era and they made a movie about
era = winning at least 5 tier 1 tournaments(including major) and being top 1 for 6 months
it has to be 2 majors but it doesnt have to be respectively.So Na Vi still has a chance of an era if they win the rest of the tournaments as well as Faze.
domination against high competition in which there is no chance a team would beat them
navi had no competition therefore no era, faze did but was shaky and lacked dominance so no era
navi era with 4 back to back majors in cs
astralis era in cs go
everything after astralis was good, but no era (liquid, navi2021, faze)
how are 2 majors definition of an era...?
Fnatic and Astralis. No other team. You know why.
In my opinion it is when a team is not just the favorite to win every tourney they enter, but also it is shocking when they lose.
you need to win 8 prems for it be an era
i.e. ENDPOINT have the only era confirmed
astralis and lg/sk felt like an era to me, I'm biased so I don't think navi, faze or liquid had an era
started watching cs in 2015, so I wasn't here for nip's 87-0 etc.
Very few would ask for 2 Majors for an Era, especially not when going back in time. SK/LG got 2 Majors in just 3 months, and won some events closeby, but that was about it. People still wonder whether they got an era or not
While a team like NiP who went 87-0 didn't get an Era by those metrics
I think you need to start by setting the rules and then applying them to various contenders. I would say that Liquid 2019 is the gatekeeper. I can't decide if it is an Era or not, but you have to do "more" than them to get an era.
An era should be self evident. If you have to explain it or argue for it, it's not an era.
a system of chronology dating from a particular event.
Astralis is last team to have an era. It needs to be era to be called an era.
An era is a discussion around retard people
