Cloud9 & BLAST

Imagine not being #1 team in the world just because of skipping all BLAST Events. I'm not even fan of C9, but you can't argue with the fact that they have everything to be top-1 team and the only reason why they aren't is just because they are not participating in some of the hottest events in the industry.

this, and because they arent the best team in the world

yeah, fuck 2/3 of the tourneys, so you'll have to wait months for a team to play
2023-01-25 06:05
The only reason C9 isn't in Blast is because they wanted to own a part of the scene a'la Astralis with Blast. It still sucks but it's the orgs fault. Maybe once they divest themselves from Flashpoint fully they can get a spot. It's not like they can't afford it.

As far as a remember, it was way better organized, competitive, great cast and showdown (exclude thorin, thorin sucks)

it just stood as proof nothing can break the blast/esl monopoly (but mostly ESL at the time iirc), for better or worse

They were probably ~top3 the entire 2022 except for antwerp, but they are also biggest chokers in tier1 now that g2 got their trophy

So Basically they are ASTRALIS Core from 2015, which means i just need to wait for them to reach the level of 2018, which Astralis did by signing Magisk, and C9 signed Buster

Yeah, hopefully, but they also need new igl :) After nafany leaves he will go to spirit and then navi and ends up being considered one of the greats. Also -interz is more like -cajunb, they eventually will end up with s1ren. :D (PS Patsi - entry fragger and secondary caller from one of the best teams from same country as C9 HOPIUM)

Ik man, it hurts to see nafany underperforming, even though they have 2 top 5 players they still didn't win any big event, (Dallas wasnt a Big event). I just hopes he bounces back in 2023 else he has to be removed to get the best of the peak that sh1ro and Ax1le are having

I honestly just want sh1ro and ax1le to have a good team. Also hobbit, because i met him at krakow 2017 and he was really nice

Idk about top1 but not being top5 because of a stupid partner system sucks. I didnt realise how bad blast was until c9 sold their spot.

Probably a bit of both. Just like I still support auti even though I hate eg. I like sh1ro, I like ax1le, I like hobbit. nafany is cool, buster/interz are both okay. But ive supported c9 since 2014 when they first entered cs. EDIT: I know theres not a lot of org supporters in cs almost everyone follows players but ive always followed c9

AH gotcha. Yeah thats what most people do but I lve always supported c9. I do really like sh1ro, ax1le and hobbit but if they were to switch to like EG or OG I just couldnt care less about those orgs. Tbh the toughest part of cs (and all sports) is that I like so many players and most of them have to lose. Like I wanted NiKo to win stockholm but I also wanted s1mple

yeah because they went from blast spring showdown to blast spring finals and won that event so they were invited to blast world final

they were invited to the spring showdown, and then BLAST ceased having a CIS qualifier to future showdowns, and teams arent always able to be invited to the showdown based off of the groups so

if they are NA on a technicality, there is no indication BLAST would want to invite them to any NA circuit, also they were not invited to the 2022 american showdown which had 3 slots for invited team or were they invited to any of the 3 qualifiers, and i cant find anything that indicates they tried to qualify. so i think BLAST safely does not consider them NA so unless they get a direct eu showdown invite, i dont think we'll see more of that roster at blast

The reason they're not top1 is because they didn't win any notable event except Dallas in 2022, not because of Blast Events LOL There are only 3 major blast events ( spring final, fall final, world )

They are not even top 3 rn i would say but it just hard to watch how they always ends outside top 5 hltv because they cant play blast events

Well that's very possible - what events did Navi, Heroic and G2 won last year? Only Blast ones.

These closed circuits of BLAST and ESL are no good for CS:GO.,,
