2019-05-31 23:36
Iberian cs , have their own styleplay , they are very agro... They need more opportunities. And the few opportunities that they have is fkced cuz of the ping , all of the qualis is online , the servers are in germany
2019-05-31 23:38
#139
 | 
Spain emCee_ 
More opportunities? xDDDDDD They need more skill, thats all. Servers are just an excuse, CIS have worst ping than us and yet they are much better.
2019-06-01 00:03
Cis have money like i said , cis have many big national tournaments that boost their teams , many end up playing in camps in germany is normal And is not soo dificult to qualify since their scene is bigger
2019-06-01 00:05
#152
 | 
Spain emCee_ 
Nop. Spanish players earn more than CIS player even if those are much better skilled. But anyways, Iberian CS will never become CIS CS with their tournaments cause we arent a region. So keep dreaming.
2019-06-01 09:43
how can CIS have worse ping if they have their own qualifiers? :) but yeah i agree with you about the lack of skill here

When winstrike were at the major he said they didnt deserve to be there in an interview (but they qualified the legit wait...). And later he continued on twitter, saying that russians qualifiers are ez and he could himself qualify easily for any majors. At that time he was playing for fnatic at the major and he got to play with them without even qualifying because they had their legend spot. So that was really arrogant.

But they are, they won a DreamHack Open tournament not long ago and beat NiP in a bo3 on LAN. Sure, they don't seem to be getting good results rn in the qualifiers, but these matches are always fishy. This, however, is the norm for VP.
