u are retard or something!! dedicated fans its called ,,, u dont change team to cheer for if u already have your fav.....
sad ppl like to cheer for the best team because they know they will win so it gives them a false sensation of happines because they support the winning team :D
Why is it holding the community back?
Is it the fact that they are one of the most mature teams out there?
Support new teams you say, is VP, Dignitas or Titan new for you to csgo? Then I suggest you do some research about csgo and dont just look at the organisation naming the team.
The players have been there for a long time, not the team names.
Im not quite sure about the fanoybs, but the haters are a lot...aaand why u care so much about those things anyway lol
Same reason why there are loads of manu, barcelona and real madrid fans: glory supporters.
You can root for multiple teams...
There a lot of VP and dig fans in this site.
because theres 2 counter-strike legends ??? dont matters what team f0rest and GeT_RiGhT will play, i will be fan !
that was when they were fnatic, sk, is now on nip, and will be ever, until they retire...
i think this is the same reason for the most part of NiP fans...
Not sure what you are on about, you chear for a team from the same nation or and cause the players are likeable, and the NIP players are easy to like.
They did a documentery and so on and that makes em more popular.
Not sure about the fact part you're on about, fact is NIP is still the most consistant team when it comes to go far in tournaments, you can't just look at the last one.
Holding back the comunity? I don't even... don't do drugs kids!
So ppl should be forced to chear for a team that is less popular just cause you want that or what.
Thread reported. Long ban incoming.
Three reasons why I hold NiP as my favourite team, are that
#1 They're Swedish, like I am.
#2 They were the first team I saw play competitive and they really got me interested in Counter-Strike.
#3 I really like all of the players of the squad, and enjoy watching all of them play.
I do support other teams as well, my NiP is still my favourite team.
why would NIP spend any tactics on 48k tournament when there is a 100k first prize tournament in 12 days?
NiP are very open about who they are outside the game as they are inside game (well used to be) which allowed people to learn something about the people behind the alias. For eg;
# NiP streamed the bootcamp before DH Winter 250k.
# They have also done a documentary series leading up to DH Winter 250k which showed the team as they are outside the game.
# friberg/Xizt used to stream a lot (Xizt kept getting DDOS'd and friberg has just stopped)
# Tweeday releases a lot of content as well for NiP
Other teams like Titan/Virtus Pro/Dignitas don't really show the fans the team outside of CS so all they have to go on really is alias/KD ratio. It's also the reason a lot of people defend Fifflaren so much is because they got to know him as a person.
Why am I a fan of NiP over all other teams? Yes they are a great team but they are the best team in regards to giving back to the fans.
Besides they were the top team for so long, it's just respect to them.
I for one want NIP to stay together because every team has ups and downs
why are people so sensitive over little comments on a guy's twitter. it's fucking twitter.
someone please shoot this swede in his cock. can't have him reproducing anytime soon.
NIP BEST NIP BEST NIP BEST ♥
All community is full of fucked up kids.
This was a supremely stupid post. NiP has alot of fans because they have been, by far, the most successful team in CS:GO. You can look at any sport and you will find that the most successful teams have the most fans. It's nothing unique to Counter Strike.
You use the term "fanboy" without defining it which makes it pointless. You need to give a difference between being a "fan" and being a "fanboy". If you define "fanboy" as someone who will support their team regardless if they lose, play bad, win or dominate then you're simply describing a dedicated fan. And again, this is something you see in every sport. Also, all teams have these types of fans, NiP just happen to have more of them.
Saying that these fans "hold back" the community is absurd first of all, and secondly, you never said in what way they hold the community back.
I personally think haters are holding the community back, people that will irrationally hate on a team for no good reason. Come to think about it, you strike me as one of those people.
because forest is a good guy
