I thought about forest as analogy, but still he had a very significant fall when he was around 30. And don't forget about CS2, it's not like 1.6->CSGO, obviously, but still can be hard for older players.
As I said, I also see more firepower as an option, yeah. The dream is Fl1t, of course, but forester is a decent option too, agree.
I don't follow real t3 so deep, but in general, I don't believe in players who play on this level in this age (seems like I am an ageist) ). That's why I don't believe in Artfrost, for example.
