so pronax is the GOAT? Retarded logic
2019-04-23 18:10
pronax one of the greatest igls. Cry is free. You need to prove your worth if you want to be considered the best. Stats are just broken promises and not reliable source to determine the best player of the game.
2019-04-23 19:47
so after leaving fnatic he has played only in t3-6 teams If he was good igl he would find a new t1 team NEWFAG LOGIC xaxaxaxaxaxaxaxaxaxaxaxa

It is so ez 4 s1mple that every round is a statpadding round for him. 1v4 on inferno with awp vs fullbuy? Maybe should save and hold an angle and maybe get one kill if they chase you? Nah, S1mple will rekt them ezpz.

2019-04-23 17:21
Counter strike it's a game where you play as a team, it's like football ,,,, even messi can't play for cardiff and win the big tournaments.....if you ask S1mple ,,, what would you rather have ,,, it as you have won, or do you want what astralis has won,,,,,,,,,,, i think that S1mple is the best in the world but just not enough if you want to be THE WORLD'S BEST TEAM,

Np! Really like it to have less commentary so we can contemplate the plays more and give it a bit more personal meaning. And then when there is commentary it's usually the best casting, stands out and increases the hype. Editing is top notch as always. Very gj imo!

exactly, this many crazy plays at one tournament is absolutely insane.
2019-04-24 07:20
2015 was the most competetive year it had most tier 1 teams that played on a high level Just because we move to new years does not make it more competetive , the teams these days but Astralis is pretty much trash Like saying the scene is more competetive in 10 years if we still play csgo with new players and S1mple and all another top players today dont play anymore You can watch 2014-2015 games people played insane and had good strats aswell Even Astralis will become average one day aswell like any #1 team does after a while
