People intentionally don't understand the word CIS
 | 
Korea Axiotimos 
Every single CS:GO fan who are more than 15 years old knows CIS in CS:GO pro scene means ex-soviet countries like russia, kazakh, ukraine, etc... Why do people pretend that they just don't understand, and bring the 'real' definition of CIS instead? I understand for Ukraine, but the others... It's like arguing that UK is not EU because of brexit lmao

Yea, I guess he's doesn't know they were a part of the USSR at one point.
2023-05-16 10:25
They were under the soviet union less than 40 years ago, it means that more than half of the people living at that time are still alive and still speak Russian to some extent as it was enforced during this period. Nowadays, youngsters don't learn Russian as much, rather English in most cases so the numbers will swap

That's one special example. But the Ukrainians still developed playing with not only Ukrainian players, especially sdy. You could argue for Woro2k, but I remember when he was trialed for 1WIN and forZe (how ironic), and he probably got to FPL-C through Zeus' CIS Hub, so. I still would find it unnatural to call Monte a CIS team due to their attitude (excl. sdy, boros and krasnal), but technically they are also CIS, yes, it's just more complicated and nuanced. It's similar in a way to when Vitality had 3 Frenchmen, 2 Danes and a Danish coach, spoke English, but most people still considered them a French team.

Idk for the rest of the world but here in Brazil we only know CIS because of CS and because of the olympics and they call CIS literally speaking community of independent states. Im Brazil and probably in the rest of America (North and South) they dont teach us almost nothing of europe's and asia's history, except for the wars. #Sry my bad english i just translated a few things...

2023-05-16 05:54
Tbf ppl use region to insult or to bandwagon the merit. Ex. Navi or spirit won against a Brazilian team. Those eu teams is so good against sa team. Forze didn't qualify. The cis region is so shit.

cis is not short for cisgender, stop with this bullshit cis is a prefix that comes from a preposition in latin, its used in many words. just because wokesters are the loudest right now doesnt mean they get the right to expropriate part of the language for themselvess

CIS irl = Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.
2023-05-16 10:26
yeah and tbh its not a thing anymore because Valve has united the EU and CIS qualifiers.
2023-05-16 10:40
I get annoyed every time I see someone say Balkans, Switzerland, Norway, and UK are "EU countries", they are European, yes, but they are not in the EU. But Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, and even a part of Kazakhstan, are also in the European continent. I'm okay with the way regions are grouped, but using the name of an existing political entity/group is pretty dumb. Just call it "Classical Europe" and "ex-Soviets" or something like that. And then swap the flags to showing the region instead of the political entity.

Ok, we split Europe into "Napoleonic territory" and "Soviet territory", then nobody is happy, well, besides the Russians and the French, but they're naturally unhappy, so that's fine. Or we can split into "Indigenous European" and "Central Asian immigrants", which would be funny for the few immigrant pro players.

That would be so funny, also Valve should update the game accordingly. I can already imagine players interviews like "It was hard for me to adapt to Napoleonic scene since Soviet style is very different, but now I feel way more confident with my horse riding skills and Charleville musket spray patterns"

"It's like arguing that UK is not EU because of brexit lmao" Erm, the European Union is a political construct formed from a trading alliance. It is NOT Europe. Europe is a continent which we are unable to float away from.
