I know how it goes because a friend of mines works in Giants gaming, and he usually speaks with xhiroz & co so I can tell you how they do it this way (and more things related to salary like streaming, videos views in youtube, etc.).
If SK does it the same way I don't know, but I expect they do.
I see eSrael as a better team than SK Gaming atm. RobbaN is just to terrible at calling, and against a team with ArcadioN in the lead, you cant live on aim alone. And if RobbaN makes a strat its like 5 years old and easy to read.
I know it seems fanboy-ish and like i hate SK, but I dont, and Im not even eSrael fanboy. But try and take a look at the tactical perspective of SK Gaming. So old and so terrible.
Not really. I think eSrael will take this only because of online.
SK has been very weak online and for that reason I do believe in eSrael. However I want to state that there's a slight possibility that SK will play this match from IOS internetcafe.
But I don't think so in this case, I go all on eSrael.
Hmmm, I don't think SK will take this for the only fact that eSrael has stepped up to the plate.
eSrael can become much more dangerous & potentially skilled than mTw.dk used to be.
It's only a matter of time til eSrael becomes the best team in Denmark. Anexis sure were lucky with their 2 last picks recently.
When they play Danmark-teams, Sweeden-teams, Germany-teams "They'r pings are max 20" its not bad as you think they play with 1000-1500 fps servers. In Thouse Days i doesent mater so mutch online or lan, I mean about the pings. Ye ofc in my opinion.
Sorry For my bad english.
SK will play without any motivation or reason to win,because they don't give a f..k about 500$ or 3rd place,but they will play "mix mode" and eSrael can have troubles against f0rest,delpan,gtr's aim...
Internet awper vs Internet awper and yes I know they are both sick on LAN now.
Delpan > coloN (slightly unless walls are involved)
RobbaN < ArcadioN (slightly in aim, significantly in brain)
trace = f0rest (debateable)
turkizh < GeT_RiGhT
Xyp9x < face
EDIT: eSrael will win
SK 13:16 eSrael
SK 16:3 eSrael
SK 14:16 eSrael
Thats a fact, Delpan has been around more time than ColoN, but COlON its WAY better than Delpan is the present, Delpan time passed he is not the same, I mean, did you see the last maps COLON played today? Fucking beast dude, no Delpan can beat that.
esrael only just started there second map against alternate so this definitely isn't starting now for anyone wondering.
Also, this will be esraels 3rd Bo3 today... interesting interesting. either they will destroy or be tired as shit
for al those who said xyp9x is = 0 and he should be replaced because half of side against alteernate: i spit on you! tired of all these morons who have played 3 times dust2 since 2010 and they are commentating about cs.
well, xyp9x was on one side vs sk better then 5 players from sk, morons.
It seriously looks like SK does not want to show their strats, I think they are thinking about the big picture which is Dreamhack and defending their title there but if they win this thrid place decider it's just a bonus but it's not their highest priority. Ofcourse they want to beat eSrael but that is just my overall impression after watching the first map.
Hehe, quite amusing for me aswell. I got the reactions I wanted from the Danes. Anyhow, If you have followed SK for quite some time you would know that its a big difference between their lan and online play.
Yes they have. I just had to throw it in there since coloN and xyp9x are so hyped for doing some good online games. While manne atleast have achieved some decent stuff at lan. And people are still talking so much shit about him.
(Yes I know that eSrael beat winfakt.fi on lan)
Well eSrael so far has played on Danish servers I think, I noticed players like Arcadion (in specific) have like 1-5 ping in every match. I think eSrael is playing online with LAN pings so they're playing quite well due to that.
they almost beat fnatic on LAN and they actually did worse online against them. they only attended one LAN so far with trace and ends up losing to fnatic because xyp9x fails one round. yeah they have some pretty good results online, no doubt, and I agree they are better online but they haven't really ahd the chance to prove much at LAN yet considering they only attended one and they performed very good.
rofl you're linking a xapso result? they didn't even have trace, their best player, back then. and yeah the fnatic result? you do realise they almost won it right? and that it was their first LAN with the new lineup?
lol, are you trolling? please read my post, I stated 'a' xapso result, and that clearly indicates I was only speaking of one of the links and trace was actually in SK in that match and not in xapso rofl. how can you claim trace was their? and yes he was in eSrael against fnatic which is a pretty good result.
yeah their 1st event on lan i agree
and they almost win it vs fnatic ?? oh please, 16-1 on dust2, and look at score on train fnatic got 7rnds as T !!
esreal can be among top5 after 5-6 lan events.
