2023 - vitality
not only they won a bigger trophy than g2, but they didnt lose to g2 this year
bro snuck in g2 and didn't think we'd notice
Out of these teams, FaZe or NaVi rolls easily. Any team before Astralis wouldn’t stand a chance against modern teams.
prime LG vs prime astralis wouldve been amazing
I think prime LG could win it
The most recent would know how to counter everything that the oldest ones have already done, it makes no sense to compare periods
astralis clears them all 2:0 ez
in that order
RLewis, Thorin, moses and SPUNJ did a podcast fake Major tournament with all the best teams.
Astralis won in the end.
make it to 10 teams and add
The only team that could beat astralis is lg/sk prime and they would still lose 9/10 times
2017 astralis > 2018 astralis in my books
The level of competition, map pool, and changes in weapons meta changes year to year so unfortunately you cannot really compare. The best team at the time is the best.
xd look at his profile g2 fan only changed to vita because of major. Still tried to sneak in g2 as 2023
If you would play these best teams of each year against eachother today i think faze or vitality, since the old rosters retired or disbanded.
Even of they would reform meta and map pool has shifted too much and they havent played together for a long time
probably 2018 Astralis or 2021 Navi, if Astralis was given much time to learn the new map changes and util then definitely them
people who say that a team like SK couldn't beat modern teams probably didn't watch or don't remember how insane coldzera, fer and fallen were
G2?! :DDD If you wanted 8 teams, remove G2 and add Liquid 2019.
Astralis would win with NAVI, FaZe and fnatic as finalists/semifinalists. BUT, I can see prime NAVI beating prime Astralis due to peak firepower.
Looked serious until you decided to randomly sneak in G2.
Snuck in EnvyUs like we wouldn’t notice lmao, also good bait on G2.
i am monesy and i disagree
2021 Navi would probably take this
Current EG clears all of them, mark my words
2017 Faze with Niko Guardian
Dont want to be disrespectful, but first 4 teams you mentioned would get smashed by tier 2-3 teams nowadays.
the irony of putting NIP best of 2013 when Fnatic beat them in the Major Final you should have put NIP for 2014 you know the year they actually won a Fucking Major
it would be great if you would add the lineups
Astralis 2018/2019 not even a debate
I think it would depend on what version of CS the teams are playing if were playing 2023 CSGO the I'd have to say 2018 Astralis and think the grand final would be against 2022 FaZe. if its like the 2013/2015 CS then id put my money on 2015 fnatic with the grand final going against LG/SK
very games 2013
astralis not close but debate is useless as no one will never know
in my heart it's LG/SK, but I know it's Astralis
2023 cause level is always getting better
but not g2 for sure
probably Navi 2020-21. Mid Covid season. Everyone was arguably their best level. Changes of metas. But navi stayed dominant for a whole year until boombi4 and war situation started. literally almost won everything in a year
2021 navi wins
2013-2015 is joke era, they would lose to any top50 team today. Just rewatch the games if you don't believe me.
16/17 LG-SK: legit core of aimers even by today standards, with actual genius levels of game sense and concepts that not only are compatible with modern play, but originated them. Fer CT aggresion and info paly, fallen battle awpers and call, cold abusing map control information with lurks, all great stuff that would hold up well. They lack modern era knowledge of utilities, so they lose to recent teams, but grant them access to a 2023 youtube nades channel and I no longer know what happens. Given the age of players at the time, the real tragedy is that they were from a 3rd world isolated country, otherwise they would have won everything since csgo debut, easily.
2018 astralis: 5 extremely smart players with device and magisk shooting very hard. They excelled in utility innovation, preparation, coordination and anti-strating, something that modern teams do as well. Without that edge, I think they lose the head to head, but maybe the games are close in unexpected ways.
2021 navi: nearly flawless team at the eye test. They incorporated SK game sens and Astralis preparation combined with god like form of peak s1mple, elec and b1t. Without the Ukraine war (and boombl4 marrying a hoooker), there would be zero doubt as they being the best and most successful team ever.
2022 faze: many of the same qualities as navi, but faze didn't have a players as good as simple, and navi didn't have a player as bad as karrigan.
2023 teams: lol. not only are they lacking a truly dominant team, the eye test is not generous. So many mistakes all around. Truly a weird time to watch high level CS, but the competion and changes at the top make it exciting I guess.
NIP with get right
fnatic with olof
faze with niko
legendary astralis team
legendary virtus pro team
Ofc astralis, as a lgsk fan hurts me to say but the astralis dominance was absurd.
This faze clan lineup remember me a lot of the old sk/lg titles, not the most correct cs but a lot of individuals performing
For me it would be
coaches could talk 24/7
now they can only input during a timeout
igl has to do a lot more
no one mentioned this cause well casual fans mostly
game has changed
