I agree. Like they have some good BO1 results, but in a BO3 I can't see them even beating a half decent team.

They did step up at StarLadder though. I feel like they're starting to find their feet now.
2017-04-20 17:58
They went to the final lmao, what's the point
2017-04-20 18:11
i arent think they did
2017-04-20 18:15
quarter-finals* but they proved that they can win an event like Cologne.

By reaching quarters you prove you can win an event like Cologne? Lul, no. Maybe if they actually won something they would prove they can win big events.
2017-04-20 19:49
It's not like they lost to a t2 team or smth, it was FaZe They're showing big improvement, you can expect them to win Cologne tbh

And the same people said the same about StarLadders. Now they won't win this, and we can expect them to win the next tournament. On and on and on.
2017-04-20 22:28
I never said they would win StarLadder, I actually believed they MIGHT survive GS with a 3-2 record. Cologne is in 2,5 months, they have time and room to improve, and they can check what went wrong against FaZe, and try a few things on smaller tourneys, like DH
2017-04-20 22:42
Nobody fucking said that LUL

PGL Krakow will be the Major in July. ESL One Cologne is a week before PGL, and Astralis wanted to focus on the Major

It would be a really good event if Astralis could be able to play :( Edit: North next plz
2017-04-20 16:53
I wouldn't be surprised if North took the same decision as Astralis.
