A male to guide females to victory? That's sounds unfair, why not a female coach?

Tbh, maybe it is what the female scene needs (not trying to be sexist here but maybe if one team can be good with a coach from the male scene then the entiee female csgo scene could become slowly really good as well.)

Female cs is so unnecessary, just let them go through open qualifiers in "men tournament"...

Valve should make another CS version for WOMEN.
