Opinion: Why the big Brazilian reunion is a bad idea

The old Luminosity and SK core that won back-to-back Majors in 2016 is reportedly trying to get back together. Here are the main reasons why the move, and big nostalgic reunions in general, is a bad idea.

On Monday and Tuesday, it was reported by Jaxon that Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo and Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David are creating a new Brazilian project and that they are looking to reunite with former teammates Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga and Lincoln "⁠fnx⁠" Lau in what was described as a "last dance."

Returning to the top isn't as simple as bringing the old gang back together

The rumor sent shockwaves through the community, as the move would see one of the most iconic cores recreated in four out of five members of the old Luminosity and SK lineup that won MLG Columbus and ESL One Cologne in 2016, but the reception was far from positive. In fact, most pundits seem to agree that it is a terrible idea from a competitive standpoint, and I am in the same camp.

The biggest reason why? Big nostalgic reunions simply never work.

Learning from Sweden's biggest mistakes

Just looking back at the two most comparable attempts should be enough to tell you that getting back on top isn't as easy as just teaming up with the same people who had once dominated together, especially this far in the past.

The first, almost shockingly similar reunion took place about five years ago, when a big shuffle between GODSENT and fnatic happened and Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell, Andreas "⁠znajder⁠" Lindberg, Markus "⁠pronax⁠" Wallsten, and Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist got back together under the former banner alongside Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson, bringing back four-fifths of the squad that won the first-ever CS:GO Major at DreamHack Winter 2013.

If you're a newer fan and this doesn't ring a bell, or you don't remember what happened after, let me refresh your memory. Two months after the move took place, KRIMZ went back to fnatic when GODSENT failed a few big qualifiers and placed poorly at the two LAN events they attended at SL i-League Season 2 Finals and WESG Europe & CIS Regional Finals. After another four months passed, the entire shuffle was reversed when the legendary quartet suffered a group stage elimination at ELEAGUE Major 2017, making it the first time in 10 Majors that flusha and JW didn't make it to the playoffs.

Most of you should remember the second project I'm referring to because it is the early 2020 Dignitas reunion that once again saw a legendary four-man core brought back from the grave, with Christopher "⁠GeT_RiGhT⁠" Alesund, Patrik "⁠f0rest⁠" Lindberg, Adam "⁠friberg⁠" Friberg, and Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström teaming up again in what looked like a desperate attempt to roll the years back and would soon prove to be just that. That lineup, with Håkon "⁠hallzerk⁠" Fjærli hailed as the young star AWPer the Swedes would build around, went through eight months of struggles at the tier-two level and stayed outside of the top 30 the entire time, before Xizt and GeT_RiGhT got benched in favor of younger players.

A quartet years past their prime

You may ask why these two examples didn't work out and why we should throw the big Brazilian reunion into the same bucket, and the answer is quite simple once again. Every one of these projects features multiple players years beyond the prime level that they had showcased when they had first played and won big titles together; in Dignitas' case, every single one of the veterans had seen much better years, and you can make the same argument for pronax and znajder at the very least in GODSENT's.

The old SK quartet is no different. FalleN and coldzera have managed to stay relevant at the top, but both have been shadows of their former selves on an individual level in recent years after hitting their peak form in 2016-2017. fer has only declined since the best years of Brazilian CS as well, and he hasn't even played in the biggest tournaments since 2020, while fnx last appeared at a big event three and a half years ago.

The average age of that four-man core of FalleN, coldzera, fer, and fnx would be 29.8 years, and no matter what wonderchild they'd complete the roster with, they'd still be at least a year older on average than the two oldest teams in the top 30 at the moment in G2 and FaZe, who are already huge outliers among their peers.

Now don't get me wrong. At least three of these players would be a worthy addition to a younger team looking to make it to the next level; the influx of a wealth of experience you need to help guide a youthful, hungry roster in search of greater heights. All four playing together would however equate to a retirement home — one that the fans would throw money at, to be sure — akin to last year's Dignitas, two of whose members are no longer competing as players. That's what this throwback project would have to look forward to if it came together.

"Cry is free" is one constantly used sentence to users who are complaining about something. But what most people doesn't know, is that this sentence is actually a huge lie. As far as we know, tears consists of water and 0,9 gram salt per litre. And both of these ingredients are not free. Here I listed the price of 10 litre tears for the countries of the G8. I used the following formula (price is in US Dollar): (price 100 gram salt/100)x9 + (price 1 cubic litre water/100) = price 10 litre tears France: 0,20 $ Italy: 0,17 $ Germany: 0,19 $ United Kingdom: 0,22 $ USA: 0,18 $ Canada: 0,18 $ Japan: 0,18 $ Russia: 0,16 $ That means russia has the cheapest cry.

FNX = Phoenix The phoenix is an immortal bird associated with Greek mythology (with analogs in many cultures) that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. research his story and you'll see that he lives up to his nickname

All i saying its that lets give him a chance to try one more time he deserves, Brazil have 4 world titles in CS, 2 as 1.6 version and 2 as Global Offensive and he was there in all 4

fnx might be the most decorated and one of the most legendary Brazilian CS players of all-time, in both 1.6 and CSGO. But he has made numerous comebacks since first retiring from this core and being replaced by felps - and every single time it lasted for only a few months and he was kind of a shell of his former self.....which is to be expected. This comeback would be no different. It would simply waste the last year or two of FalleN/coldzera's careers.

He won the south america minor before Covid and was about to play the major with Red Canids through SA spot, that was his last team that was seriously after 2 years retired. Then Covid19 stopped everything and this team got disbanded. Playing alongside FalleN and cia again with an goal certainly will bring back his fire on eyes to once again compete at the highest level, when we talk about him is all about motivation, if he's living the game, then u have one of the best's players of all times in your team but u need a decent team to make him shine his best due to his strong personality.

The only way to achieve any kind of success would be: FALLEN - He's a smart business man with knowledge about the game, so he would be a great manager to ANY team (PT / ENG speakers), he would be able to manage rly well all the requests and stuffs between players and org. FNX - Keep focusing on realities TV SHOWS. ESQUECE PADIN. COLDZERA - Should put all his efforts to become a bodybuilder. It's already common sense that he's becoming a poor player because his thews are atrophying because of exercises, CS requires precise moves and he's going into the opposite direction with his gym style. FER - He'd be the hell of a fking good Stand Up guy. Go for comedy bro, you're real good.

The last dance only will make them suffer from constant loses, 0 titles and if they manage to clasify to the major, the only thing that would come out of it, would be fnx losing his 100% win rate xD

Every team cold touches, goes in very strange way. I really dont know why brazilians think that this core (cold, fallen, fer, fnx) could play in tier 1 matches and outcome better than Furia. But, it seems that the people here jus want this lineup for fun. I think there's no problem playing in high level CS just for the old times. Fallen could look for Yuurih and Kscerato to build a roster, but it's probably too hard to take them out of Furia. The dream team right now, would seems like: Fallen (igl, awp, support) Yuurih (rifler, starplayer) Kscerato (lurker) Lucaozy (entry, support) Latto or Cold (doing Taco role in LG/SK era)
2021-11-11 02:21
Anyone can peak if they're in the right environment, but all of them have gone past their prime when thery were together... Fallen might peak again with liquid or any other team again if they get the right pieces together same with cold and fer... But if you put them all together there's no way they're gonna stick for long,

That's why brazilian teams fail. Anything less than top 1 is shit. That MIBR team from 2018 and early 2019 was good, but they worsened without fans' support.

2021-11-10 19:31
we all know it wouldn't work, but we'd still be hyped to see it an actual project with fallen+cold+3 younger players might actually work to a certain level and become Brazil's second best team behind FURIA... I don't believe any project with coldzera would become super relevant again, as he's seemingly toxic when he loses, and with his current level - although still good - will be seeing him losing often
2021-11-10 19:31
2 replies
"we all know it wouldn't work, but we'd still be hyped to see it" Yes, but the hype will go away as soon as they start to lose every single game. You know the brazilian community man. This is a mistake, they will only deal with critics and some hate. No one would enjoy to see them losing a game by 16-5 everyday. I would agree with this lineup if they were gathering to play some showmatches and one or two small tournaments, just to fool around.

FalleN faced the truth of being out of meta in Liquid and went from mediocre to okayish. But fer has been complete trash since he joined 00nation. fnx didn't even touch the game so... cold is still relevant but he sure has to change his style drastically to become more effective. They have to embark new players and/or explosive players to reignite the fire they had when they first boomed into the scene. The passion they had was second to none, never seen such a passion in a team since Immortals disbanded (with HEN1 & co).

I'm telling this to everyone too. The hype will be gone as soon as they start to be destroyed.

This will only generate more critics and some more hate towards them.

not dumb at all, he stated facts. It would only end their career while Cold and Fallen can still be in a tier 1-2 team. Making a reunion with a full brazilian roster would only send them to their very end of their career and tier 3-4 easily. He said the absolute truth and It's just an advice, they should consider It for sure.

"[...] but the reception was far from positive. In fact, most pundits seem to agree that it is a terrible idea from a competitive standpoint, and I am in the same camp." What? BR scene loved the possiblity of them being together again, we don't care that they probably will not win a major, we want to see them, to cheer for them again. You guys don't undestand about love for a team/sport. It's not about numbers and statistics.
2021-11-10 19:52
Why it's a good idea 1. They are bringing back a legendary 2 time major winning team again and there is a 20% chance that it will reach top 5. 2. Sk era ended because of astralis era which is a kryptonite to their own style. Now the meta defining team is Navi , which plays the same slow paced C's that sk used to play. 3. They can use this lineup as a foundation to build back the Brazilian scene to the top. Even if this lineup fails , there are 20 more Brazilian players who played at the major and with that much talent they can make roster changes as they like. Consider this. Fallen decided to build a strong Brazilian team again , and just decided to start with their old sk roster to see if it works today. If it does , great. If it doesn't , well time to make changes

20% chance? 0/8 1) There is not a 20% chance that they will reach top 5, and they being "legends" do not change anything other than the hype. Astralis won 4 majors and multiple tournaments, but they are still, currently, on the 19th place of the HLTV rank. 2) I don't watch much CS so I can't really say your point is wrong, but I still don't think this meta will do much for them. Coldzera, Fallen, Fer and FNX are all past their prime. With this 4 players, I don't think the team will do nearly as well as SK did, not today. 3) Well I mean, this article said that the "Big Brazilian Reunion" is bad, so saying that "they can make roster changes as they like" isn't really a point. You are saying that the team, even if this lineup fails, can still be good with roster changes, but you aren't defending the brazilian reunion that this article is talking about.

This is literally a "old friends close to retirement coming together for one last dance". This is not a bad move or decision. No one expects them to win majors or t1 events.

2021-11-10 19:57
who cares
2021-11-10 19:57
it's been almost 6 years since then and brazilians are still going at it for no reason, they would definitively be a marketing machine but as a cs proyect i don't see them beating top teams ever, time has been hard on them and the way they play the game it's not the same as they are used to, probably a lot of clashing of styles since half of them played on EU/NA and the other half just played mostly on brazil, maybe we could be wrong, but there is no reason to have the highest hopes for them. Also, we don't know on what region they are going to play which is a HUGE factor on their success as well.

device lists the best CS players of all time in tiers (NIP player put ''coldzera'' as Tier S) Considered one of the greatest players in Counter-Strike history, the Danish Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz has four Majors in the account, in which two of them won the MVP (Most Valuable Player) award. A key part of Ninjas in Pajamas, the AWPer "made a tiered list of the best CS:GO players" of all time. In partnership with betway, the Dane had to put the following players on a tiered list: Marcelo "coldzera" David, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, Denis "electronic" Sharipov, Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, Jesper "JW" Wecksell, Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, Håvard "rain" Nygaard, Richard "shox"and Paple, s1mple" Kostylyev, Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski, Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson. TIER''S'': coldzera; dev1ce; dupreeh; forest: olof: s1mple TIER''A'': fallen; electronic; choose; get_right; kennyS; Niko; shox; snax; zywoo TIER''B'':flusha, guardian, jw; krimz; rain AWPer was humbled by putting him in the top tier of the tier and commented that he "needed no explanation" for the choice. The list has been split between Tier S, A, B, C and D... (dev1ce opinion has value, your opinion is the opinion of a person who does not have the qualification and property to spread...) 🤫🤫🤫🤫

2021-11-10 20:08
Opinion articles ?? are without news
2021-11-10 20:08
I'm brazilian and I agree. Of course I would love to see them joining together again and winning everything, but I know it won't be like that anymore. 1 - Fallen - Maybe the only one (or Cold too) that can keep up in tier 1, but more of a IGL thing now. Just 1-2 years until he retires and becomes a coach (He'll probably be an excellent one btw). 2 - Coldzera - Hard person to deal with. Nothing but a shell of what he was in his prime and he made clear this last years that he can't shine without a support sacrificing himself, like Taco did for him. 3- Fer - Nothing like he was before, lacks motivation and dedication. Maybe he can play at tier 2-3. 4- Fnx - For god's sake. He was a beast, but he's not even professional anymore. Months ago he was participating at a reality show... We have to see the truth. Time moves on, and they're all consecrated major winners in the end of their careers. It's an e-sport with miliseconds reflexes. Eventually, young people will show up and take over.
2021-11-10 20:10
For me, the line would be like this, fer, fallen, coldzera, Stewie2K, it's one more, fnx you can see that fnx doesn't want csgo anymore but lots of money
2021-11-10 20:10
Striker---I would say the exact opposite, now is the perfect time for these players to build a project. All 4 players are beyond the age an organization would offer a multi-year contract. They have all won on the biggest stage. Would you rather try and find a fringe tier1 team to say you 'still have it', or live out the remaining years you can still compete playing with your friends. Transitioning to a coach is publicly admitting you ain't got it, something these egos can't do. Given the size of the growing Brazil market, they will certainly command a lot of attention, regardless of output. And maybe there's a larger motive....to build a new organization. While it's hard to imagine a world where those 4 egos would implicitly be 'ok with sucking', why not ride the hype of your past success while basically being your own boss? Sounds like a nice pre-retirement plan.
2021-11-10 20:10
Good content. Opinion pieces are content HLTV has been missing IMO. As on the subject, quartet is not going to make top-10. Like said in the article, veterancy of these players should be used to help young players... No-one wants a repeat of what happened to Swedish scene.

All I want to say is... Striker is based for making this.
2021-11-10 20:15
the only thing why this last dance is bad is because last dance is supposed to bring back players from (semi)retirement for one more time. fallen himself said he still has a few years of pro cs ahead of him. also cold has no reason to retire yet. btw striker sorry that i didnt read the whole article yet. maybe you already made this point
2021-11-10 20:15

I think the "last dance" is fitting to use here but age depends upon the professional player... Can't really say much for Coldzera because he has hardly played recently but f0rest is still fragging out of his mind in his 30's.

What a bunch of crap. Teaming up for those players doesn't mean that they aim for top 10 or something like that. They will make an org richer right from the start. Then, they will gather a heck lot of fans, being nostalgic or not, that gonna cheer for them. Stream views will be higher than never, and the players themselves will have fun playing with their friends. I don't know what is to be lost. They don't need to win a Major. They already did it. Twice.

I truly like Fallen and I don't want to see him in an absolute dogshit, tier 4 team. He must stay in Liquid or find any other decent org. Making a brazilian team now would be the end of his career. Coldzera and Fallen are nowhere near their peak performance but they can still somewhat deliver.

who cares about what the fans say? He's doing a good job. The real question is why forming a brazilian team? when you have the best brazilian players already in orgs? for what? to make some quick hype that dies after the inevitable losses that will come with It? I don't want to see Fallen there. He's a legend and he doesn't deserve It.

great article. is this the start of a trend to more editorial/op-ed content on HLTV in addition to the usual fare of news, highlights and interviews? i think it's a nice idea, it would be cool to get some guest contributors such as coaches, casters, former pros etc. (not thorin) to contribute too
2021-11-10 20:23
It's an even worse idea than the idea of "resurrecting an ancient brand namely MIBR would magically save the dwindling performance of the lineup" That also, was comedy.

Coldzera, out of its prime, is still better than any Swedish promise, that's not an opinion, it's a fact, that is, Coldzera is good enough to beat younger players who don't redeem a bit of what is expected in major. It's hypocritical that you want to compare Coldzera with their Major Champion team, with Coldzera without their Major Champion team.

lmao they are probably trying to steal some paychecks before retirement I'd imagine fallen's contract with TL is short and about to end cold doesn't have a team (coL are signing CPH Flames, he's out 100%) the others are simply washed up, in fact every single one of them is the same, my honest opinion but in the end I still would like to see this happen

I don't think we can compare this to Dignitas because Dig, from the start, was supposed to be just the ol' boys having fun in T2, while this brazilian "last dance" wanna pretend to be a competitive team
2021-11-10 20:35
Dig was better than most people give them credit for. It was a bad way to start a team (after like 2 months prep halzerk wasn’t available for visa issues, lasted months due to lockdown) then they came back struggling, but they still beat at the time a #1 rated fnatic. They did kind meh for a while though. If we assume these players haven’t gotten significantly worse (which they really haven’t, the competition just caught up) and they can get back the team composition they had before, maybe they could do decent
2021-11-10 20:35
1 reply
They haven't gotten worse ? LUL You must not have seen them play much in 2016-2017 then. Fallen was an awp god with monster reflexes and coldzera's aim litterally 3x better than now. Both were also outrageous clutchers. Fer was a very good aggressive rifler and top 10 player and fnx a top player too with great clutching. Now Fallen can't hit a flick to save his life and decided that instead of awping he would rather throw flashes, drop rifles and play FAMAS. Cold's aim has been embarassing and it looks like he can't have decent numbers without his official jack, TACO, baiting for him. Fer, on top of not caring and rivaling cold in toxicity/ego during the late stages of his tier 1 tenure , has now disappeared in the limbos of t3-4 CS. His style of pushing non stop is oudated AF and he was getting chained punished for it, back then when he still played relevant CS. And finally fnx, who is now a reality TV 'star' hasn't played in years, and got kicked from his own project after a few scrims ( by kng and co ) back then because he was bad AF... XD Look like they have gotten significantly worse to me. Which won't be helped by the fact that top team have gotten significantly better in the same timespan...

2021-11-10 20:36
Ok... I had to create an account just to post it here ... Im not a Journalist, im a medical doctor that uses HLTV to follow CS news since ever ... Striker... first of all, isn't this a news website ? if we wanted opinions we would follow you on twitter ... I don't see other big journalists posting their opinions on their websites .. they usually use their YouTube channels or twitter accounts. Anyway just a heads up ... ill have to continue following since you hold a monopoly on your hands so you should have more responsibility. Second, you stated on twitter that "People will quickly stop giving a damn if you don't have the results." as a counter argument for not mentioning market value and so on. Well, from my small perspective, entertainment has nothing to do with results, it is based on your ability or talent in being able to provide entertainment. As proof I can use yourself as the best example where you peak a maximum of 3 to 5k viewers on twitch when you do HLTV confirmed or even when you tried to do the watch party for the complexity match while Shroud gets 20k on any random match, or even Gaules gets 100k while opening CS card packs. Im sorry you just dont have the talent for it ... but you are a great Journalist, so you should keep at it, maily focusing at giving us news rather than biased opinions that wont change anything. The Brazilian community doesn't care about results, numbers, HLTV ratings, we care about being passionate for the game we love. Players are the ones that should care if they are going to win something or not ... but were talking about the most successful core in BR counter-strike history, they already achieved what they wanted and they don't need to prove anything else to anyone. We will only know if it will work after they get together, and even so, it will probably make more money for the organization than any major titles will ever profit them... so we can all agree that it is totally plausible for it to happen.

Bro did you even read the article? He clearly states that his opinion is purely from a view of competition and that the move would probably be really good from a business/nostalgia point of view. Nowhere does he mention the probability with which it will happen. Jesus the people in this thread should read the article before commenting...
2021-11-10 21:52

Bro, the title reads "Opinion: Why the big Brazilian reunion is a bad idea". Those be fighting words unless that the point. Striker goes in great length to prove why they wouldn't be t1 competitive, but that in itself doesn't make the reunion a 'bad idea'. Even if you polled the yahoo's on this site--most people would agree the 'reunion' won't be a competitive t1 team. So writing a lengthy opinion article proving that point is rather silly. And with a rather misleading title, you're only provoking fans like malor. I wish HLTV.org spent more time analyzing the business side of the competitive scene. When I'm trying to think, for example, the next move Liquid will take---I want to know the current player contracts(as much detail as known), what ownership does the org have in certain tourney's, etc. That's a huge factor in trying to piece together future moves.

One last dance indeed. Players such as cold or Fer may have chances signing for other tier 2 teams but players such as FalleN and FNX honestly I think are just giving it one last try before retiring, they have been in the whole CS scene for so long that of it wasn't this, they would be retiring for sure. Top 20 material if they get it together

2021-11-10 22:20
Maybe the team will go wrong, but not because of nostalgia or whatever emotional stuff. They arent in their prime, but the is more than just winning, is to work with professional cs and feeling good about themselfs. But yeah, the chances to be a major winner (again) is low, for reasons that many teams will have. They are not good enough right now.
2021-11-10 20:48
Brazilians, we as a community must stop paying attention to these situations. They will always find a way to attack us, even disguising their opinion, have any of you ever seen HLTV give an opinion? They can't stand the fact that we're the strongest when it comes to media, engagement, they can't stand the fact that we were once at the top, it's us to us, and they huddle like rats, looking for the crumbs we throw.

2021-11-10 20:55
As a brazilian and a CS fan, i have to agree with everything said above, Both Fallen and Cold still have their ways to keep playing in high level, but they aren't able to carry the others anymore, Fallen + Cold with some brazilians skilled guys would be better, But i personally don't think it'd be a great move for Fallen since he is in a great org with great players around him, Maybe get Cold to liquid be a good idea as a stewie replacement, Although they need to solve the communication problems in liquid!

Literally all the teams in the world have people who don't want to see them play. If "there being people who don't want to see a team play" would be a reason for the team not existing then we would have literally 0 teams in any kind of sport. Sports are driven by the people that DO want to watch them, and I assure you that this team would instantly have hundreds of thousands of fans. Also, you say that it wouldn't last long, but how do you expect a bunch of near retirement 30 y.o. players to be in any kind of long term project at all? Have you never seen near retirement football players who return to their home country to end their carrers around people they love and grew up with? This is kinda the same, it makes total sense.

What are people saying Fallen cant kill? Did y'all see the major, out of some breakout games by Elige, I saw him in the top of the scoreboard a lot of times. Was GODSENT Bad? Yes. Did they beat the unbeatable Astralis in Train? Yes. Stop comparing cases, they clearly fell off due to personal reasons, not because they played together before. Will this team win a major? Probably not, but they are all in "bad form" and playing with their roots again might be the confidence they need to get back to top form, if it's one last dance just to have some fun and possibly win something, I don't see anything against it.
2021-11-10 21:12

This team will be made to get 200k on twitch vs any tier 5 ESEA Advanced team... imagine how much merch they will sell, their engagement on social media, their numbers when playing vs EU teams... this team will bring a lot in terms of content (for bad and for good), they are not aiming to be a top5 team again for sure. If the Last Dance don't happen: fnx will keep streaming, fer will keep losing with 00Nation, cold and FalleN will join other international teams and will be blamed for any bad thing that happens on their teams. if the Last Dance happen: all the things on my 1st paragraph. So, it's a win-win situation for everyone, maybe not for cold because he could crack a spot on a top 15 team maybe, but for the others involved, it will only bring benefits. Not to mention their new org will get a MASSIVE BOOST (followers/subscribers/likes/comments/retweets/merch) once they sign the old SK core.

Dignitas CEO maybe had the attention to get top 20. But the team itself knew they wouldn't. I dunno why Striker put it in the article. Flusha said once after he took his break after Katowice Major when people asked why he doesn't make a team with Pronax he said sth like "It worked 2015 but things that worked back then not work today" And that is just it. No need to write a whole article about the stupidity of some Brazil pro players that never finished any math class.

So statistically it has almost no chances to work. Meanwhile, teams with bunch of young players and 1-2 veterans shine, Vitality has worked before RPK left, Gambit skyrocketed with Hobbit and you can make more examples of such teams that have worked or still work. Point being, veterans who are less egoistic are done pretending they are stars and they are willing to play anything in order to win. Hobbit is doing amazing, but I bet you he'd trade all his stats for more wins, cause he plays for those, not for his own MVP or rating. I guess not everyone becomes wise with age. There is also a money side, they can likely get bunch of sponsors instantly and just play average games and earn bunch of money just from existing in the scene. And they are likely to do fine in Brazil and NA regions, enough for sponsorships. If they step onto EU soil they'll get KO'd.

You clearly have no idea of what you are talking about. You are compairing hobbit, who is 27 and is still in age to play tier 1 cs, with this brazilian guys who are almost all into their 30s already, some of which are already retired. They clearly don't care about results at this point in their careers, they won what they wanted, they gave what they had in them. They just want to have fun together one last time before they retire for good, and also as a fan service, since the brazilian community is dying to see them together one last time. And nobody is giving a fuck about their possible results. If they win something, great; if not, that's was not the point lol. And if you think they are doing it for the money you really dont understand how big they are in Brazil. Money REALLY is not a problem for them. They earned millions in prize money and invested their money quite well. They are all really rich at this point, but they still stream almost everyday, just for fun and to interact with fans. And in their streams they never push merch, or ask for donations, or anything. They even refuse donations sometimes, or redirect them to charity. Funny that you talk about wisdom as if they are doing something stupid...but in the end they are pursuing something that will make both them and their fans really really happy. In the end, isn't that the point in life?

No, it's you who did not understand what I said as I never directly compared Hobbit or any other player against each other. There is no proof it will make them happy, it could be like going back to your toxic ex for which after all those years you thought he/she is no longer toxic cause you only remember the good things. As for streaming, if you do not stream for 2 weeks you are no longer relevant in streaming world. That is simple as that, your viewer count tanks, your income drops by orders of magnitude. They stream cause it is a big revenue source, they stream while they can before they retire from CS. It's what you do in 20's and early 30's, you overwork your self, fuck your health up and hope you've made enough to make it work. As you made such outlandish conclusions I could parallel you with Cathy Newman and her famous "so you are saying that...." interview that backfired - I did not say they are doing something stupid. But they are also not doing something that is likely to be successful, making it not a very smart move overall either. While on some imaginary scale it lands closer to stupid than smart - it still serves a purpose. Just not a championship purpose, in my eyes it is most likely going to be for the money. Whoever roots to see them one more time is going to be disappointed in any case, both if this team is assembled or not. Cause even if they put this team together - they are going to suck hairy tits and likely to fall apart faster than it got assembled. I want to see it work tho, but all stats in this world suggest it won't. It will work for selling merch so sponsors will hop on even if results are as crap as we all expect them to be. There is no way in hell they beat top 50 tho.

I disagree with basically every paragraph of your text. "there is no proof it will make them happy..." - They are definitely the best ones to talk if that is true or not, and that is literally what THEY themselves said. Not me. Both fallen and cold said on streams and interviews recently. If you think you know better what makes them happy then you can take your opinions to them hahaha "As for streaming..." - About streaming, I would agree with you if we were talking about people who see streams as income, which is not the case, as I said before. It is pretty clear that they do not stream for the money. As a proof of what I said, cold rarely streams. Fallen a little bit more nowadays, but in the past (few months ago) he also use to stream really rarely. Fer didn't stream at all (until he became free agent and had more time, but when he went to play in 00nation he stopped again, even though he was playing basically for free), etc. They just stream when they are on vacation or something. They do it because they like to interact with the fans and as a way to remain active when they have spare time. As I said before, they donate most of the income they make on streams (I guess you refuse to read it before, or maybe just forgot when writing your text). "as you made such outlandish..." - not worth responding to that. "whoever roots to see them..." - very wrong. As I said before, AGAIN, most brazilians who want to see them together are not expecting trophies. There's been community poles on the biggest brazilian youtube csgo channels and they all indicate the same thing: pretty much all brazilians want to see them together one last time, and the majority of the fans don't think they can win big tournaments (or any tournaments at all). As I said, the fans just want to watch them play together one last time, that's why people are calling it "Last Dance" here in Brazil.

dev1ce said in his interview that he is moving to NiP because he wants to be No1 player in the world, point being that people say anything in interviews, no matter how delusional it is. Brazilian fans will not be pleased with 30% win rate of the team, sure, hype is there, but it has been done before where old players gathered to do it again and after first 1-3 matches everyone forgot about it because they were bad and dismantled by everyone. As passionate about CS as they are, Brazilians are not stupid, no one is having any fun when they are loosing way more than winning and there is no more wins in sight. Meaning they will get disqualified from everything easily, meaning Brazilian fans would not get to watch them at all. And then toxic minority will start to do the "I told you so" kind of thing, everyone will talk trash on the bird app and that's about it. It is very likely that they will be so bad that no one will ever see them play. Making all those fans who want to see them really sad. And people tend to forget about sad things in life. No one will say it in a few years "yo, remember how cool was it when they reunited". It's just a fart in the wind, if Fallen was a people pleaser to make a team that community wants he would not be an IGL imo has to be about the money from sponsors as I just cannot see it working, not just for the team, but for the fans too because fans will never see their team play. Last but not least, reunion of every show that ever existed was crappy and vibe was not there. But it pays a lot....

Who are you guys to say it's a "bad idea"? If theyare happy playing together and the fans are happy to watch them together it's the BEST idea, tbh...

I'm pretty sure Gambit got 5 tournaments wins this year, together with a 3rd/4th place on the major and many other good placements. Their top 1 was deserved. I mean, will you really call a team who got 3rd place on the major (which was on LAN) "PronNETs"? And even if that was the case, what would you do, not update the ranks in the online era because some of the teams might only be good online? That doesn't make sense. Also, Gambit, the ranks and Online CS are NOT related to this discussion. If you disagree with Striker's opinion, either tell the reason, or just don't bring unrelated stuff into it.

That's not much of an answer. Stewie is an extremely versatile player. Grim is a one role player and he plays like a bum when it really matters. If Liquid got tarik (who has experience playing in more supportive roles with great success), they'd be living the life. But they have this "star" NA player who is now showing themselves to not be so hot on the world stage.

Striker is an ageism clown. Getting tired of this nonsense that no one can play past 24 years old. This team likely won't be good, but it's not because these guys are fucking geriatric. It's because many don't GRIND as they did when they hadn't made it. This isn't the fucking NFL or NBA striker, we move a mouse with our fucking hand. This is exactly why we don't see Oskar on a tier 1 team, despite clearly being better than many of these young, inexperienced, inconsistent AWPers. Because of low IQ opinions from our unfortunate talking heads in the industry. Does it hurt CSGO the industry to have these famous players still playing? No, it of course helps because the Brazilians are bringing viewers to the scene. Please retire, please. Get a job as a garbage man, or at McDonalds, either would be fitting.

I mean it's not ageism if it's true, people don't react or process information as quickly, and it matters in a game like this. When has a reunion of a long dead team ever worked? Remember when old fnatic reunited and it failed? Remember when retired NIP members joined dignitas and they couldn't break top 30 until they replaced a few of the veterans with newer players? Remember when adreN and mou joined K23, and the best they ever did was break top 30 for like a week? Sure, you can have like one older experienced player, some hobbit or rpk. You can have a zeus or apex being IGL, particularly in less fragging-intensive role. But if the average age of the team is like 28 then they will never find success

Can you hear yourself? "Read a book" really? Since you seem to be so unhappy I'm going to guess either 1. you are a big old SK fan who is upset 2. or for whatever reason you feel offended on behalf of older players? Maybe this touched a nerve? Anyway, I'm right, you're wrong. This team will NEVER succeed. if cold and fallen join up with some young, hungry players they could probably achieve something, but if they reunite with washed, old players like fnx and fer they are making it transparent that they want to collect a paycheck and make money off of merch. I respect that actually if they just want to chill and enjoy their gradual retirement from the scene, but Striker is 100% correct that they won't win anything.

thats a bad article, for real. just report the news, dont share the hltv opinion.
2021-11-11 02:38
They should simply go hobbits way (yes, he is not that old). Find promising roster and improve them by their experience. Help youngsters grow. I still think Fallen in furia is possibility if drop won't look great.

Actually not a bad idea.

An opinion piece.. leave it to real writers. You report CSGO you're not the nightly fucking news.

to milan if he reads this. the guy who used to write most of these opinion articles used to keep it fairly clean, not much bashing and posted his opinions in a different way - for example instead of saying they dont have any chances at all it wouldve been preferrable if some question of the sort was applied: f.e. "Where do they go from here?" and expand from there. thats how proper journalism is made Please keep it neutral. this just looks like a partial judgement just to bash on them, close to a rant. theres other places more suited for that (in hltv these should remain in forums). if hltv news section starts heading in this direction its not a good idea imho

BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! *toss empty red plastic cup on stage*
2021-11-11 03:31
This roster will disband in 2 weeks and they all (except coldzera) will retire after the shameful performances. Everybody knows fnx is undisciplined as fucking hell, coldzera is outdated and fer is washed up as fuck. This is mediatic bullshit.

This will end badly imo. Just like cogu said bringing back the mibr will just ruin their legacy and they ruined it.. Instead of going for the "nostalgia team" and "jobs for the boys" pack, fallen should seek the fresh talent out of the br scene and make a new competing roster that's hungry to win. But in the end of the day what do i know :D ..

2021-11-11 05:27
what if they rewrite the rules and defy your liming beliefs? that would be interesting at least they seem to believe something, lets find out better than doing nothing, what else should these players do in your opinion? just hang up the mouse and surrender into nothingness? please

Almost 800 comments XDD brazil triggered
2021-11-11 09:00
They are all finished players, cold & fallen included they will literally get no where - just trying to stay relevant
2021-11-11 09:16
if they do this right they can make MILLIONS of the br fans.... like myself
2021-11-11 10:03
Opinion: Why dating woman older than you is a bad idea? Because my friend once dated an old woman and she cheated on him. My other friend also dated an older woman and she was too busy and never had time for him. Me? I don't date anymore. I once dated... not real date. You know? Just online date. A long time ago. So that's just my opinion. You should not date old woman.
2021-11-11 10:22
Striker talking with 0 majors kkkkkkkkkkkk
2021-11-11 10:28
Competetively a bad idea but it would be quite nice to see these legendary players' reunion. They all are washed up anyways so they have nothing to lose.
2021-11-11 10:30
- fnx
2021-11-11 10:51
good article. i have no idea what expect from this team, but i'm always cheers for the core. since they left mibr, i didint watch brazillian cs scene
2021-11-11 11:20
ok, you do have a point. at the very least, i think they would get the biggest brazilian fan-base (or worldwide?) and they would be happier playing again. furthermore, at least top 30 isn't such a dream.
2021-11-11 11:33
I don't know if it will be a bad idea, but it would be very good for the Brazilian CS scene, it would give more visibility to the game.
2021-11-11 11:41
man, you just cant compare the sk and core with fnatic core, its way different, big hugs!

Brazilians are extremely passionate about the history of the Brazilian CS, there's no way to say it's a bad idea, it's a grandiose marketing move and mainly something to promote the scene.
2021-11-11 14:55
IMO If arguing, do it against the idea and not against the person. The ''The last dance'' core is nothing but a hype and marketing big strat. You just need to see the stats, I agree that they can still play high level, but its not what we're seeing lately, actually, none of'em autograph stickers are available RN. As in my name, I'm not a hater, I'm just beeing realistic. Honestly, I would appreciate to see LG/SK line playing again, but I cannot imagine a world in wich they came as a #1 HLTV team again, winning majors and stuff like that, as the fans are wishing. I must say, if ''The last dance'' happens, just dont be mad with the guys if they if they dont meet your expectations.
2021-11-11 15:07
The hype it may generate, wont last longer enough to pay it self. Fallen and Cold are more than capable of competing in tier1. Fallen might feel its time to retire... 00Nation 2.0

Who cares about age in CSGO when we are talking about major champions Their life is dedicated to this game and they can still fight against top tier teams Maybe not from the start, but like 4-6 months
2021-11-11 20:06
This is for delusional Kids and Brazīllians fani tos, who think they have a chance, well they can max reach top10+ and its still a great result, dont get me wrong i love to see around 30yo still playing actively, but has to be realistic

2021-11-12 17:30
#701 I agree. I dont like this article at the news page. There should be a different section for this.
2021-11-12 17:53
But, what if you are wrong? We will applaud them for trying. I'm pretty sure that old NIP and Fnatic fans were happy to see the gang back together and they supported them, was it disappointing? Yes, but also fun. We want to give it a try, the odds are against us, they are out of their primes, but we want to support them! And what if they do well? Have you think of that? What if you are wrong and the chemistry is good? What if they get good results? Have you imagined how great it would be? Isn't it worth the try?
2021-11-12 19:13
Agreed.
2021-11-13 11:42
f*ck this sh*t, we want a last dance. If it goes wrong goes wrong... If it goes right we can always joke on striker
