>>607247Based on what?
m4a1s is overpowered and csgo devs don't care about balance therefore it's a waste of time to play csgo
of all of fallen's acheivements,the best one of them all was when he humbled frod's eg. who were so delusional that they simultaneously believed 3 things: that cs was a waste of time, that anyone who didn't play during cal/cpl era is bad/onliner/cheater, and that they should be sponsored, salaried and have free flights. he basically helped cement what everyone had secretly believed, that na is full of shitty hasbeens and that young people playing in esea/cevo or just happened to run into one of them when they're raging in a pug, shouldn't take them seriously.
Rate it boys
They updated the glitter stickers and they look fucking good

Is device seriously still not gonna come back for this majorOr is he waiting until 10 minutes before the match to announce that he's subbing for pric3tag
>>607573i think it's finally hit him that he was in a relationship with a golddiger who ended up leaving him after he left astralis, and now there's no team that he can win a tournament with.
Why am I so fucking shit with the AWP, something has to be fundamentally wrong with me.

you WERE at the annual UOHHHH meeting last night, weren't you?
>>607596where are we
any frogs around to verify?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Swg0qLLXccc
which channel is this from
>>607669Is this a rhetorical question?
>>607662Rough translation of the first minutes>we thought we were going to suffer against astralis, and we did, the maps were close, but we're happy we won>we picked vertigo because we'd watched them and thought astralis weren't good on it>we were surprised and happy they picked ancient against us>after the first catastrophic day, we were like "okay we suck but fuck it." Everyone in the team realized we suck but with our little practice we couldn't expect miracles especially with the level of play nowadays in CS. That was the first thing to relieve the pressure for us,we were like "Sure it sucks it's a major and we'd like to be as prepared as possible but it's not the case so let's stop worrying and just try our best as we're playing." That was the first click. Afterwards you start winning games - americans work on confidence a lot - so as you start winning rounds, sides and maps they start gaining confidence and trying new things, they're more confident in their duels so they start winning more duels so it's a machine that gets going, and we capitalized on it.>second thing: I'm in the habit of preparing games a lot and making plans for the whole team for over 2 months, and when I saw how bad the first day went I understood that preparing and having plans and whatever is useless if we're not in tune together on the server and we needed to simplify things. I'm in burnout too so it's difficult to have energy, so I was like after the first day "Okay I give up let's try something different I'm stopping preparations and keeping my energy for the game itself." Because my real strength is reacting to what's happening instead of preparing. So now I let my teammates manage the preparations and let myself get directed more by nitro and adren. But I'm someone who reacts a lot to what's happening during the game so I told nitro "if at some point you don't have a solution, I'll always be here and have one for you 100% just from what I'm seeing during the game."
>>607684>For now it's working so I think we'll keep things like thissecond question>couch: we started to see oSee as an impressive sniper, do you guys have a special preparation with him to push him? Because we can see he has a lot of talent but is still very inconsistent>shox: I helped him a lot for the first 3 months and he thanked me for it, but the problem is now with my agenda I don't have enough energy for this so I can't allow myself to spend all my energy on coaching him right now. I think he's on the rise like the team itself but with the agenda it's been hard on us. The difference with guys like nitro, naf elige and me is that we've done a lot of tournaments so we're used to having to play even when we don't feel our best. So we know how to deal with times where we're sub par for a while whereas it's all new for him. It's his first major etc, but with how low we fell I think there are a lot of questions in his head and he doesn't really know how to figure it out, but now you make me realize that when I wasn't feeling great he was the first to offer to help me during the matches to do things to relieve me and it helped me and the team. He's really cool and an exceptional player as much as for skill / game sense but also his mentality. He's a hard worker with a good head on his shoulders. I'm gonna have an aside with him and give him a little speech for next week to boost him for the next stage.>couch: what do elige and naf bring to the table?>shox: headshots *laugh* Naf only helps with tactics in 2 specific circumstances: either when he's really high on the scoreboard and is confident so he feels more chatty, or when we're getting rekt and we're really in the shit. But the goal is to avoid this so when the team is doing well he doesn't bring much as far as calling.>Elige is very emotional so from one round to another he can be giving a lot of calls or completely shutting down>this time he'd done a lot to prepare against astrali
>>607684>>607696what a dysfunctional mess of a "team". To think that a top-tier player, "best of NA", with a massive salary is basically a little girl in-game and can shut down and refuse to communicate when things get bad is mind blowing.
>>607696Then an uninteresting question about nitro coming back from valorant, only takeaway is that the guy is neutral in any emotion. He's always very calm no matter what. As far as IGLing the thing is that he never refuses any suggestion, so there has to be a lot of work to make him more confident in his calls. He's trying a lot to catch up to the meta in CS but it's impossible to catch up in 3 months after having missed 2 years of CS. So he's on the right path and he tries hard, but not quite there yet, and it's normal, it will take more time for him to be really at his best as an IGL.>couch: how do you feel with your team speaking english? and how is it with your family?>shox: outside of the game I'm really happy with the guys. I know there are little hiccups with my english but aside from that there is a really good ambience in the team and I feel easy.>with my family it's hard and the only thing we figured out is that my wife and kid try to join me more often, like during the bootcamp a month and a half ago they came to see me for 3 - 4 days to spend time together after practice. When we went back to the USA for Dallas, the Liquid manager hosted us kindly so my wife and kid could be with me for those 10 days. During the major I'm focusing on the game, I'm not seeing her but I'll want her to come to the stadium if we play on the stage next week. There's nothing stable right now so we adapt when we really miss each other.
>>607715Then he talks about seeing former teammates etc, most interesting takeaway is that he doesn't understand why Evil Geniuses would blame MaleK and the staff for the team's shortcomings>I can't imagine how as the director of EG you can see the team's performance and think "the problem comes from the staff">couch: Do Elige and Naf feel good since some players left the team?>shox: Yes.>couch: my impression is that you're the leader in Liquid, as far as I can tell and from what you said you've been the one doing most of the preparations. Did you expect to have this many responsibilities when you arrived in this lineup?>shox: I knew I'd have responsibilities but I wasn't prepared and didn't expect to have this much to do. This is why I'm in burnout and I'm hitting the brakes. I do it because I want my team to win and I work and work and work, but the problem is that I don't know when to stop and it's on me too, I should have asked for more help and delegated more. And I know that nobody in the team will be against it. We'll try to balance the responsibilities better.>couch: I think you and Naf have a somewhat similar role in game, how do you feel about this?>shox: *doubting the question, asks for clarification* From an outside POV I had the same fears as you but in details, idk if you can see outside but internally we are very different players. I lurked a lot with Vita but the system made it this way, I had a different role in G2 and was feeling good there too. But now I have a lot more experience so I want to be more mobile, and I react a lot faster (tactically) when I hear comms now, so I want to be mobile. Whereas Naf he won't move, he'll stick to his role and guard his site and be solid and do his double kill. So we have different ways to play. But at the moment I think we still haven't figured out the best way to put each other in the best spots. We need more adjustments for this. Naf is there to kill, when he takes a duel he doesn't stop halfway.
>>607729>In the end we're not that similar in terms of role.>couch: How is Adren?>shox: it's very hard to compare with xtqzz. Because in NA they have a very different vision of what a coach does. In Vita and G2 the coach was very present and gave a lot of directions and had a tight bond with the leader to give his vision and make the gameplay work.>Here the coach doesn't really make decisions, it's more up to the players to find their own identity. The coach has more of a support / tool role where he tries to help and perfect the players' vision. But he's not here giving directives like "We have to play this way.">couch: How did you manage the game's approach? Since you're from EU did you bring your own vision and has there been conflict with NA players like nitro and elige in that regard.>shox: of course there were conflicts. Anyone in T1 who says there isn't conflict in that regard is a liar or he's not bringing anything to the team. But the conflicts have been well managed in that each time we managed to compromise and fall in agreement. The NA CS was always very classic, slow and readable and if they win rounds it's from individual plays, but tactically not interesting. So for me it was very interesting because I found myself playing end of rounds or middle of rounds again, which with Vita, Apex has very fast calls so for instance count the enemy's nades, smokes, util etc was thing I used to do back in the day but haven't done in a long time so it was weird to come back to this but I like it. But when you're in the middle of a round and have a post-plant to manage you have 6 things going on in your head. But when the round goes to the end of the timer you have maybe 12 things in your head so it's harder to manage>What I tried to bring was more visibility in T side, bring faster plays, not removing slow plays altogether because NA likes them but add more variations to the playbook to be less readable. We made better plans so we can react better mid round
>>607736>CT side I try to bring more movement. They've always been big fans of CIS teams like Gambit, so they're like "yeah look how passive they are and how they play their smokes in reaction etc" and I can't take that away from them. Sure Gambit is very good with that but what I tried to tell them is that nowadays in T1 over 80% of teams don't play like this. Some teams still do and are good at it, but do we want to do this because "oh it's pretty?" or because we're comfortable with this? They're 2 different things.>This has been more complicated with elige because what's a little paradoxical is that sometimes you think he's an aggressive guy who wants to get into it, and sometimes he's like "I want to play slow and keep my smoke until 30seconds are left". You're like "it's hard to be consistent with this" so we try to mix both playstyles to figure out when to keep a good smoke or whatever for the end that will make the difference and hold strong on the sites because we're confident. Or the more EU side that I tried to bring which is more like "come we'll rotate there" or "come we'll try to fish for info there" to see what's going on and fuck we'll go at each other and not let the other teams do what they want.Then roughly they talk about tactics and how NA players are more comfortable relying on skill to make the difference rather than strategic advantage. "Even the great Liquid team the big difference was just twistzz getting 3 kills each round." Which can be frustrating because shox really likes to make info plays but depending on the maps and positions he can't go for it
>>607746Lastly>couch: What's your objective for the major now?>shox: To begin with we wanted to go through the first stage, because it would have been a big fail to not make it through. Now making it past the second stage and placing top 8 would be a good performance. At the present time, we realized that we're in the shit and right now we're just trying to win maps, and then maybe we'll win matches. So the first goal is accomplished now. If we could accomplish the second goal it would be beautiful, but we're not worried about it. Let's try and win rounds and we'll see.Then they joke around and talk about other teams and the major in general for the last few minutes

>>607684>>607696>>607715>>607729>>607736>>607746>>607752thank you very much for doing this, was initially just asking for verification without the imposition of translating it allI remember fallen talking about liquid players (maybe elige) having issues with a looser style where they didn't have tactics for every possible situation, I wonder if nitr0 changed his mindset, leaned heavily on stewie for midrounding (and now flounders), or if it's just the lack of confidencekinda crazy that shox is taking on so much in a job thousands of miles away from home and family, and his wife can't even transplant because of the kidalso I doubt eg is gonna keep the same lineup, if the coaching changes aren't a precursor to others, they're insane
>>607817I don't know about that outsiders 0-3 pick but it looks safe otherwise.
>>607817>>607851>CHF 3-0 is safeReally?
>>607853It's safe in the sense that it's safer to have teams you think will go through like Faze or C9 in the advance slots rather than the 3-0. This is because you won't get a point if your 3-0 goes 3-1 or 3-2.

So, it happened AGAIN. We can blame hitreg, we can blame lag, we can praise Na'Vi's elusiveness but the truth is it's simply not enough. Tactics, aim you name it, it all stinks.Don't get me wrong, I still have full faith in XTQZZZ and the lads, but MASSIVE supplies of PEDs are desperately needed in May. Otherwise I'm not very optimistic about this season, or our chances in Antwerp for that matter. Not playing like this.

Looking at the matchups you'd think vita and faze lost on purpose

How the FUCK is Elige so fucking garbage at this game. I have such high expectations for this dude because of his glory days but he nearly always disappoints. How is someone that is so analytical about the game that does every single thing he can do to get a slight edge in game including having perfect posture and finding only the most elite mouse grip tape for his delicate hands that he has his own hand heater for suck so much? Dude grinds hundreds of hours into kovaaks and aim labs while most pros don't even use external programs to train. He wrote an entire essay analyzing a match for a university team so that they could improve. Him and his teammates talk about his methodical approach to the game and how he needs to find a reason for every play and mistake that happens in game. He seems to have deep knowledge of the game and then gets into a match and makes the dumbest fucking plays the world has ever seen. Elige should be the NA s1mple with his dedication but he is nowhere close.

>>608704god fucking dammit of course it ends up being team I care about vs team I despise.. useless C9, they're suppose to win.
>>608704this fucking seeding, man
>>608737>>608760Yeah, I know... You can thank Heroic and ENCE for being single digit retards by allowing Spirit and CPH to pick their best maps
>>608761Ancient is Ence's best map too though
>>608784Better than Nuke?
>>608784CPH is good on one (1) map.
>>608704feels good to have NaVi as 3-0. I have yet to see anyone i know or in hltv put them as 3-0.
These scandi teams are so boring, no fun allowed

>>609198they are right for once though. fuck choko and b0tesy
>>609207they approved it with PGL during the RMR, they literally did nothing wrong.
yeah I'm thinking based
>>609164You can't be assed to use 3 buttons on your keyboard? How do you type?
>>609210Is this one of those situations where people are crying about it purely because it was done against Brazilians?

>richard jewis malding over some redditards comment with 3 upvotesrich, I know you're reading this, seek help you braindamaged faggotyour shitty csgo club full of dicksuckers and yes-men isnt healthy for you
>>609232That smoke is an obvious bullshit exploit worse than astralis abuse
>>609236He deserves it messing with bardolph and ddk last major
>>609232Nah, it's a pretty shite bug. No wonder that the players decided to do a "gentleman's agreement" again
aleksi is so fucking bad
>>609232Not exactly because it never should have been approved in the first place, but only third worlders could make such an embarrassing display especially when it's not the player's faults.
>>609236>goes on a tirade about how twitter and reddit are cesspolls of mental ilness and shit debates every fucking show>uses twitter more than anyone else in the sceneWhat did he mean by this?
>NiKo shitting the bed AGAIN
>>609232Nah, it's a hilarious engine bug which has been a thing since probably CS:S times
you know niko is malding hard rn
Every single G2 twitter account and player account is raided by rabid macacos
>>609075take your medications, fnx and fer probably play less cs than you on a daily basis
This major will end up like krakow, isn't it?
based Cadian dabbing on cheaters
>be niko>recieve more util damage than iraq>die to smoke spam a gazilion times>get pistoled by ur archnemesis cadianniko was probably tilted of the face of the earth at the end of the game
the eternal choker
Gambit is so soulless. I've felt this for a while, it's like watching AI play the game. Even nafany's cheering feels like copying what he saw in other teams.
I can't even imagine the amount of shit G2 is going to get if they won't get past the group stage
rain is a literal gigachad
bruh faze are playing with no respect
>playing a bo1 in a major against the current best team in the world>let it go to the map you always banWhat did Clown 9 mean by this
>>609291cloud z saving strats for major
>>609269That period when NiKo believed he could AWP at top level was so absurd
>>609232It was approved by PGL so monesy did nothing wrong, you can argue he should've been a better sport and not used it even after getting permission but the kid's only just turned 17, it's hard to fault him for not knowing betterDon't let any of this distract you from the fact that 100k monkeys are probably going to spam him with death threats for the rest of the year though. BR fans are a fucking blight
>>609297>BR fans are a fucking blightI do wonder how they manage to be the worst group of people in everything.
>>609304Just look at the state of their country.
>>609291appearently they fucked up the veto lol. check >>609308
>>609308>>609311Hobbit confirmed it was intentional
>>609313I genuinely believe he said that to save facehttps://twitter.com/karriganCSGO/status/1525821408923860992
>>609317Save face from what? Is messing up the ban somehow more embarrassing than intentionally picking into a map you suck on and getting btfo?I don't buy it.
>>609313idk i don't see a world where they it nuke go against faze but you never know.
I hope CPH and Spirit can reach the playoff
liquid should honestly just quit cs. the players and coaching staff are all paycheck stealing anyways, no point
comeback is on
vitality about to go full liquid
19-15 liquid incoming
>>609308>>609317How did they lose 7 rounds to this and this guy isn't even embarrassed
>>609341fuck i jinxed it, sorry na lads
>zonic: "I told ZywOo, if he's not there we're not going to qualify"
>>609342That round where they've lost a 1v4, had the bomb they went on to hunt him, get picked one by one and die to a molly on vents on full health was insane.
>>609317>admin couldn't reverseWhat the fuck is going on with PGL? holy fucking shit, i hate them
>>609304https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongrel_complexBRs have literally almost nothing to be proud of, despite the size and potential of their country. No glorious past, no bright future, no real achievements in the present (e.g. Nobel prizes), nothing. Ever notice how every single argument against a BR eventually devolves into them mentioning the 5 WC titles they have? It's because that's the ONLY thing they can call an achievement, something they excel at and stand above the rest of the world. They're desperate for respect and validation because of this, and so whenever they do well at anything - anything at all - they latch onto it with all they have and act like BR are the new top dogs, in a collective belief that they finally have something else to be proud of. When they inevitably get dethroned and reality comes crashing down on them, they go on full damage control, inhale all the copium available, and try to find any excuse possible to downplay said dethroning; this is a huge reason why they always chimp out if they believe they've been slighted, because it's both a perfect excuse and a blow to their fragile pride. FalleN's career is a perfect example.
>>609350Valve rulebook. You can't ask for a veto redraw for being a brainlet. Admin even asked c9 if they're OK with Nuke and they said yes twice and then ask for a redraw so it's the players' fault
let's go shoxie
>>609355What's the UI they use for map vetoes? This is a UI designers fault. Just like that hawaiian nuclear alert, turns out it was just a shitty dropdown for real alert, fake alert.
>>609353>all this texti see the cope against O HEXA started early this year
>>609362How the fuck did they manage to fuck that up
>>609353That's sad man. I remember dan carlin podcast about ww1 and this was literally how germans of that time felt. These favela niggers will cause ww3 one day.
Is zonic going to become the Poop Guardiolel of CS?

I kinda want G2 to win the major just so all the BRs get even madder
>>609417He was the vp IIRC>>609415Nah, they're still pretty good, some minor gaffe aside
>>609353this but also the same for the USA
>>609385zonic has won 4 majors, guardiolel 0 cl. zonic is more like ancelotti or mourinho
I fucking hate PGL bros
>>609439he's won two, though. My point was that he's bottled it since he's left Barca
what the fuck are they doing? why do they "play" the round?
>Imperial 0-3>C9, Faze, NaVi, G2, FURIA, Heroic and ENCE to advancehow fucked am I

>>609467yep wont be queuing mirage for a while
My pick'ems have just been revived with that Liquid loss
Where the fuck did this Spirit come from?Are they gonna keep this up in front of the crowd?
God damn it, a lot has changed in two months
Spirit already in TI form bros, wtf
>>609503>>609497>beat furia, chokeic and CPHthey will not get past quarters
All you need to clutch is an A1-S and opponents with shitty AK's
Who is NiP's awper?
M4A1-S meta is fucking unwatchable
>boomers beating kosovarscalled it. the years of experience were always going to make a difference.
>its a ukrainian(navi) vs russian(team spirit) finals script
Why is this league of legends harlot there?
>>609542it;s because of the m4
>>609568That's a man
>>608342I'm thinking I'm safe
>>609571even better then
This major is so fucking wild. I legitimately had these teams as going through to the Champions stage, along with Navi and Faze. I guess an Imperial pick is pure delusion but the other 5 seems reasonable as final stage picks, especially after Challengers when G2 and Vita looked really good
>400k watching Gaules streamcan any Hue give me a qrd on him? Seems insane a guy who just restreams like tarik but in Portuguese can have that much viewers
>>609588I would have also picked Virtus Pro to go through but Richard Lewis has confirmed that the staff that helps them with preparing the matches are not at the major since they're considered part of the org.
>>609595that guy has been streaming cs for almost a decade.
>>609595I think he used to be a 1.6 pro and he's best buddies with the old Luminosity/SK roster, not to mention he's been streaming since foreverHe's also one of the biggest reasons why hues are so aggressive towards literally everyone else
rigon god please save my pickems
not like this eaglebros.............
GO HOME TRASH!
>>609542god bless I called it right. Still in it boys
>barely beating some literal whos from kosovo in a 0-2 bracket and acting smug about itstate of macacos and their delusions lmao
b1t is so fucking good, not just some mechanically gifted pro but also elite gamesense. He's like ScreaM only if he wasn't so braindead
>>609647gonna be c9 vs faze with karrigan coming back from 15 - 11 on the third map and winning in overtime
>>609647Thanks for the curse you piece of shit son of a bitch
s1mple looked like junior in that map, no impact for the majority of the rounds. He also lost them them their potential 15th against NIP eco with the unnecessary push after the double.
Imagine being so fucking lame you make Pimp look exciting
>>609662and still they barely lost 14-16. that's how insane their skill depth is.
Thoughts on ancient in pro play?
>>609671i don't like the openness of the A site
>>609671they should play aztec instead
i deathmatch more than i play the actual game
>>609678400 out of my 600 hours are DMThen I get into a normal game and lose my first fight
Was CS always this CT sided?
>>609670exactly. Worst s1mple Mirage performance since HellRaisers days. and they lose by 2 rounds. they're so fucking stacked. s1mple and elec are barely breaking even K/D but they have b1t/perfecto to haul ass
Valorant mapmakers designed Breeze with Ancient in mind. It's weird how they really used this shit map as inspiration
>>609692Even Bloombl4 tends to make like 2 game winning plays per map. Combine it with their super sweaty playstyle it's impossible to beat them
>inferno>end half>guy on my team has 17 kills exclusively playing half wall on banana with a mag7based
>>609683400 dm hours isnt that much desu
>>609697Ancient is starting to warm up on me, to be honest. It's the post plant situation that still tilts me a little
>>609710s1mple says A site is broken and needs to be changed. too easy to spam
What happened with S1mple and the "dark side of Belgium"??? I gotta know now!
How much do you wanna bet this retarded seeding system is going to pitch Faze vs Navi in the QFs?
>>609723I think he's just surprised by the amount of brown people there.

>fix le smoke bug in less than 24 hours>>>nothing else
>>609799based valve taking all of Brazil's excuses
>>609800But it was 1 degree colder in their room than the opponents, obviously this is discrimination.
>>609295this was the perennial "choking panic late-map awp, which he's somehow even less impactful with" niko classic
>>609863Why does he keep fucking doing it? Does no one tell him to stop? Do their staff pretend they don't see him buy awps and proceed to not hit anything with it?
>>609896>knows he's The Star who can decide a game on individual ability>chokes>tries to change it up by leaning on the same crutch as any GN1>actually fucks his team's setups, and is even less individually effective because of his tilt and lack of comfort/practicethat webm was particularly egregious, because m0nesy was also awping on A and it just looked horrible
why cant i frag like i do in dmhow do i hold w and win
>>609952your game sense and positioning is probably bad
>>609799Now they just need to fix Ancient and the m4a1 and the game would be solid
>>609497>>609503degster said he has 180 hours in cs/2 weeks, which is like 13 hours a day every day, and his teammates have similar numbersit's hard to beat autistic grinding, same as gambit's run. hard to sustain, but if you peak and get a major who cares
>>608830Depressing video tbqhwyf

>>609269i bet he could hit him with ak.

Hobbit's career about to end. He got caught for matchfixing
Do I watch Fr*nch and D*nes vs G*ermans or D*nes vs E*ropeans?
>>610155It's just a conjecture based off his recent performance, it's possible they're all just falling off,but it's more likely they're all just dicking around all day
>>610150maybe :) maybe not :)

>>610174>conjecture I think the word you're looking for is 'bullshit'
>>610223Elige pls go
>>610186ESIC are always desperate to justify their worthless existence so expect them to hand out a ban in a few months.That said, punishing a player who was in desperate need of money and spot-fixed a tier 5 match 7 years ago is beyond asinine and the snitch is a complete faggot. Then again, that's ESIC's calling card.
>>610226say it on LAN kid see what happens
Who honestly gives a shit about matchfixing from 6 years ago, every fucking pro did it at one point
What a choke lmao
>>610231Some real case of jealousy in this particular case
zywhores... it's over for us
>>610223you're right they're all at their peak right now
>>610236my pickems are overon suicide watch

>>610275>>610276>>610277You didn't actually read the article did you? Or any other RLewis article. Despite how he acts when it comes to his journalism he's absolutely the best in esports and the article was just him laying out his claims objectively and even gave a relatively negative assessment of his potential motives at the end. Hate Richard for who he is all you want but he actually cares about fair journalism.
>>610290Yeah shut up Richard I did read your article Hobbit is innocent. Why? Because I want it to be that way
>>610291hmm once again based
>>610291This is tranny logic.

the real question is how are brazillians going to make h0bbit throwing matches in 2015 into an excuse for beating imperial
>>610307they will bitch about h0bbit not being axed for attending the major while Peacemaker Productions was banned
>>610264>>610268How can anyone hate these guys
>>610308there's the angle I was looking for
>>610307The real Brazilian play would be to show evidence of your own match fixing to own them.
If I were doing pickems this time I would have put vitality in 0-3, I guess that was a bit much but they really weren't impressive in the challenger's stage and had an easy batch of matches
zywoo clutch as fuck 7 kills in the two deciding rounds
Watchin the major on the toilet takin a shit, lovin life

Please god knock these g*rmoid dogs out
gesus christ this big vitality game is so bad
This game looks like a fucking MG1 game
why exactly is vince at this major? can't remember the last time he was relevant. what's the last event he casted
never seen a happer player after such a shit game. apex should be embarassed.
I wonder when Tabsen will stop wasting his talent by staying in the German scene
vitality does not deserve zywoo
>>610341Compared to the Navi/NIP game yesterday this match feels so bad in comparison, like t2
I don't think I've felt more underwhelmed by a high stakes overtime third map ending in a long time. At a certain point the mistakes and throws stop making it entertaining.
And just like that, Pick'ems are safe Captcha:Gag/sp/
>NiP gets destroyed by Astralis>One week later they beat NaVi on mirage and make the major playoffs with fucking es3tag as an awperwhat is up with this team
I have a sinking feeling that outsiders are going to upset G2, their slow style seems designed to fuck with aleksi's mental midget calls
>>610358pric3tag wants to remain the only dane in the main roster

I don't know what to make of this NIP team. In some maps they look unbeatable but as NAVI showed they can also crumble quickly like that Ancient game
>>610370it's the same story as always for nip - consistency.
Why did they Pick nuke lmao
Whoa Niko discovered retreating, it's over for everyone else.
based hue still buttblasted about G2
I’m still stanning Hobbit
I can't wait for the Brazilian meltdown when Imperial/Furia get eliminated. fuck the potential monkey viewers, i hate their rabid fans
HELLO DEVICE? 4HeadIT’S NIP! 4HeadHAVE FUN IN BENCH 4HeadYOU’RE STAYING THERE 4HeadKEKW
>>610365>>610368>>610393looks like device has to push for a roster like this to even find a spot, NIP is definitely going forward without him.
Why is Aleksib so fat?

>Jap valorant fans are Brasil tierfucking wot?
richard lewis just talked on stream on how almost the entire scene, even top household teams, were corrupted and throwing matches back in 2014. a frenchman whom acted as a proxy skin transfer man for several pros, wanted to come clean and offered richard helprichard then went to valve and offered to do all the work if they gave him skin transfer histories etc but no one was interested csgolongue was bought by virtus pro's parent company and they quickly shut it down, erased all logs conspiracybros, we keep winning>>610444they pull insane numbers in valorant, like hundreds of thousands when zeta division played in the valorant majoranyone know why valorant is so popular in japan when csgo wasn't?
>>610445Influencers and waifufags
Does Aleksibot at least make some good calls or us all he does looking pretty while bottom fragging?
>>610445>everyone was fixing games in 2014this was well known since forever dude. I remember making bank on obvious throws like a Na'Vi vs wolves something team (it was worldedit's team ) back in 2015 with some ridiculous 95-5 odds on lounge. No one should be surprised
>>610445Riot puts a lot into cultivating the azn market, Valve doesn't.
>outsiders t side>1:15 round time>still 5v5>2 outsiders die>go for save when it's 45 seconds left
>>610453they're the kings of manufactured hype, I'm actually impressed at riot for making inferior versions of other games but making them potentially more popular and profitable.
>>610453Japan just likes games with a lot of playable characters. See fighting games and touhou and apex and all the rpgs where everyone and their mum joins your party
Wtf are g2 doing
glasses sjokz is CUTE
>>610461their retakes are so fucking bad compared to every other t1 team. Even with a one-man advantage they usually lose their retakes
aleksi is so fucking trash, why is he even on that team?
>after the disaster that was awp NiKo now aleksibot thinks he can do it too Why
Why do they keep slipping?
>>610466Because he was carried by Sergej and Allu to a major final, which created the narrative that he is some Karrigan-esque IGL. He got lucky with a miracle run and continues to be hailed as some top leader.
>>610469Slippy G is probably the most accurate NiKo comparison kek
>BR fans cheering for Outsiders just to spite G2What a pathetic bunch of subhumans
SAME OLD G2BUSTASTRAIGHT BUSTA
>>610472What beef do they have with G2? I've yet to see the hues act without Brazil being involved in some dumb way
>>610474G2 used a glitched one way smoke to win at least 2 rounds against Imperial and against Navi to force them into OT.
>>610476I see. Pretty sad G2 has to resort to that shit in order to best Imperial.
>>610478shows how fucking bad they are. Out of every team they couldve pulled this shit against it had to be one of the worst at the major. This type of shit you pull out during playoffs for ultimate seethe lmao
>>610484I enjoy it that they did it against the biggest favela niggers out there (Furia are cool doe). Not only that but imagine the absolute chimpout if they also lose to C9 and will go after hobbit aswell.
Jitu are finished

>>610495That's who should be using it. S0mple and zywoo wasted their career on grandpa gun.
>>610491Why would they bring back that sad fuck ever again? He wasn't that good and let the team down big time. Hopefully he'll piss off an ruin another org
Imagine paying $1M for this fucker and he's spent most of the time on the bench
got a little close for comfort, but we looks like we finally broke them, g2bros. now let's grab that win tomorrow!

ENCE and C9 to win and it will be very comfy
Looking forward to whatever excuse the BR's can make up for Imperial getting 16-0'd
this is what it looks like when these boomer monkeys actually play a t1 team
>>610491friendly reminder that there was zero drop in performance for the nip team after he left. on the contrary they even had slightly better placements with that phzy guy
ence is destroying heroic in aim duels.and 4/5ths of this team was solidly tier 2 a year ago.

Crazy idea: how about we just don't allow people to bet on T12345 games anymore?
play faster you retarded russains
>>610606they are spotfixing
>400k viewers on gaules streamdamn, brazilians do be loving csgo unlike their lazy NA counterpart
>>610627>loving csgoNo, they love popular players. All those viewers will vanish in the grand final when actual good teams that don't have fallen play.
>>610629>picked spirit as 0-3fuck off thorin
>>610636crawl back to the favelas, macaco
it's funny how easily FURIA gets overshadoed by Imperial. They barely get more brazilian viewers than MIBR do, it's like Astralis vs Heroic in denmark
>>610627They don't love CSGO, they love Fallen and the old Luminosity playersFuria never draws this many dimes, which I guess is a good thing because they don't have to be associated with the worst dregs of that fanbase
>>610638>>610639the only player that BRs love in Furia is Kscerato, Hen1 when he used to be there.
Jesus my heart
>>610636i picked BNE as 0-3 tho
god i fucking hate these shitters, and they are overperforming hard this game.now this lucky clutch by ferhope our NA bros send them home
i love this script valvelast dance baby
>c9>g2>vitality>bigtoo many teams are playing garbage this major
>going for hail mary plays when you just need to close it out
I really, really don't understand how a team of 4 30 year old boomers who have been washed up for ages can make the top 14 (minimum) at a major. Fallen is a monster IGL
crazy fucking game holy shitand there's a map after this
>>610659c9 are shit and whiff all of their shot is what's happening
>>610661kinda feel like the team that loses this map will just collapse
overtimes should be mr2 instead of mr3
>>610668you should get some bitches on your dick
>>610672dont worry c9 is converting energy for the reverse sweep
Imagine losing to these literal monkeys lmao
>>610659and stewie "die for me dude" 2k was the one that took the IGL duties from fallen on liquid
>attempt to rush b to winFucking both these teams are hilarious
>>610659Imperial are overperforming and C9 are shitting the bed big time
>>610678Are we really going to pretend that fallen hasn't been shit since 2018 again?
>get signed by Cloud9>chokemany such cases
most hype match of the major so far
>>610684Two retard shitters who will never achieve anything ever again in their miserable lives. What's your point?
Wtf are these viewers
>>610694reached 570k peak, more than 100k more viewers than yesterday's Imperial vs BNE match, which was the BR record
>>610694my man making BANK
Is CSGO at its peak, lads? Viewership records being broken day in and out and that's with a big part of the fanbase being at war right now. Do you see any bigger orgs investing in the future?
uh Thorin? I trusted the 0-3 Imperial + Fallen slander
>>610701Fallen has got to be the most over-rated player in the history of CS:GO. Has never even been the best player on any line-up but people try to make it sound like the guy was Zidane.
thorinsisters... we got too cocky

say what you want to say about favela nigs but they do put a show
For the entirety of last year these zoomer faggots kept upsetting teams I like and pulling bullshit win after bullshit winThe ONE time I want them to win and they're practically throwing against the most unlikable team in the major
ahh what the fuck NAbros, I thought we'd destroy them on Mirage?
>>610810Bunch of fuckin russians ain't NA, we want Imperial
>>610816No we don't. If there was a way I'd choose neither team winning.
bruh why does boltz look so punished

IF IMPERIAL qualifythey will play vs NaVihow many views?
I wonder whether Gambit got fucked over by the Hobbit matchfixing stuff. Obviously they should've still gone through regardless, but I can see that could throw them off enough to make the difference.
>>6108672 million MINIMUM
>>610863>one of CPH or Imperial will go through>one of Vitality or Heroic won'tI fucking hate this system so much man
>>610873cph always perform on lan for some reasonmany people suggested them as the dark horse 3-0 pick
>>610864cant find the clip, but he even answered in english. The guy with gaules said "Fallen, do you think you're the most underrated player in history?" and he said something like "No, look at how many people are here watching us, cheering for us"
>>610876>on lanAt majors. They bombed out of blast recently.
>>610880Oh, I've just realized that the blast was online, yeah. I feel retarded.
>>610867that's assuming Jitu wins, which I think they'll choke away
I thougt that the last dance wouldnt even qualify for the major, seeing how 00nation (better team on paper) got raped in t3 europe. also spirit and cph flames doing wellnice major
Script just leaked bros
If this turns into another monkey renaissance then I guess I'll have to say goodbye to watching CS again.
>>610894>CPH, Spirit, then ENCELiteral Mickey Mouse path to finals
>>610898ENCE is so far the second best team in the major after navi
>>610896just fuck off then, we are the reason this dead game still gathers views, jeaulous subhuman scum
>>610891Imperial didn't get to play that many of the top teams and they lost a bunch in process, but getting at least top2 SA/NA placing is pretty good.
>>610900they will fold when Spinx chokes
>>610905if ropz chokes faze will play like garbage, too
>>610908he doesnt choke. rain and karribot are the problem
>>610908Faze seem to be the team to start slow though and rise in the play-offs. Every player also has so much experience by this point it's pretty insane. It's teams with very new players like Spirit/NiP/Ence that's the prime fodder for major choking.
>>610892big booba posted in this thread
FalleN is the most over-rated player in the history of CS:GO. Has never even been the best player on any line-up but people try to make it sound like the guy was Zidane.

>>610132>shox is good he just doesn't careread this chain >>607684only naf came away looking ok this major, at least shox has better justification than elige
>>610978unironically got 4 or 5 literally stolen from us
>>611015I still have no idea why Shox is in Liquid. It's like seeing Hiko playing in flipside.
>>611022hiko played in flipside because s1mple liked himshox is playing for liquid because naf likes him. it actually makes sense to have a veteran second caller who's known for helping nurture young talents, he's just not fragging quite enough, and doesn't seem to be able to say no (or fob work off onto an analyst). and he's gonna burn out in <a year too from of the unclear responsibilities and distance from his family
>>611031shox is igl
>>611033>So now I let my teammates manage the preparations and let myself get directed more by nitro and adren>I told nitro "if at some point you don't have a solution, I'll always be here and have one for you 100% just from what I'm seeing during the game.">As far as IGLing the thing is that [nitr0] never refuses any suggestion, so there has to be a lot of work to make him more confident in his calls. He's trying a lot to catch up to the meta in CS but it's impossible to catch up in 3 months after having missed 2 years of CS. So he's on the right path and he tries hard, but not quite there yet, and it's normal, it will take more time for him to be really at his best as an IGL.read that guy's translation, it's very interesting>>611022nvm that was how hiko and s1mple met, I'm dumb
>>611031I guess it's not that weird considering that Stewie and Tarik played in MIBR and S1mple in liquid, but I'm still kind of puzzled by the intentions. I can see why would shox take the gig if there's nothing else left, but I have hard time seeing this work long-term due to just locality of the players. I don't even get why would Liquid need more veterans/experienced players. NAF/Elige/Nitro are some of the most seasoned NA players that are still playing on this level and Nitro was brough back specifically for this sort of thing. Elige also is a fairly vocal player and oSee seemed to have been described as fairly vocal too. I guess the move could work a bit like a hail Mary and just giving it a shot in case it somehow works.
>>611044it's stranger than those because they were young and unmoored, and shox has a wife and stepkid, but>NAF/Elige/Nitro are some of the most seasoned NA players that are still playing on this levelnitr0 is overcoming 3 years of meta changes, without even igling for a bit during valorant (I think, didn't watch) and>coach: what do elige and naf bring to the table?>>shox: headshots *laugh* Naf only helps with tactics in 2 specific circumstances: either when he's really high on the scoreboard and is confident so he feels more chatty, or when we're getting rekt and we're really in the shit. But the goal is to avoid this so when the team is doing well he doesn't bring much as far as calling.>>Elige is very emotional so from one round to another he can be giving a lot of calls or completely shutting downshox is coming in to replace stewie and midround/feel the game out. if you mean experienced players would help mentoring osee, that didn't go so well with grim (iirc fallen did a lot of that)
>>611052Well, with Grim nitro wasn't there, so that itself could be the difference to change the outcome. Grim also was a rifler with some fragging prowess, while the team seeminly needed someone to do more of a bitch role instead and wanted Grim to do that, which is just asking for a disaster. oSee clearly is the awper that is going to awp, which shouldn't really clash with rest of the team composition too much.While I guess I can maybe see why team liquid might think that they'd want someone to help with leading and direction for a bit, shouldn't that really just be the job of the backroom staff, namely coach? And if that's what you're looking for you surely want someone from within your scene/culture to do that sort of thing. Both Daps and Zews are currently free as far as I know and surely even if they think that Shox could do this sort of job it cannot be a long-term solution, right? Once nitro gets his shit together there really shouldn't be all that much for shox to do?
>>611066Maybe they need a voice that keeps them together in the server, a coach can only contribute as much as time outs allow during matches.
>>611067From what I've heard that's an Elige thing and nitro + Adren are in the team pretty much due to him. How much more does he need? That's getting beyond ridiculous.
>>611066not the guy you responded to but wanted to point out something>shouldn't that really just be the job of the backroom staff, namely coach?yeah probably, but you realize that adren doesn't do jackshit right (anyone not on liquid copium should've realized this already, but if not see shox interview above). on top of that, their manager guy jokasteve cares more about players feelings than results. even if they hired people like zews, daps, whomever, they wouldn't be able to change the system since the players and the management don't care and would rather paycheck coast (desu who can blame them it's fat stacks). in short, liquid need a complete overhaul starting at the management before anything will truly change
>>610363yeah I always thought nexa was a genius for pic related, if only aleksib just called the same kind of playnexa wanted to stay on the roster as a nonigl rifler lmao
>>610414>RUSH>ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahsay it to his face
>>611080Daaamn rush looks like THAT?
>>611073That's the narrative I've heard. The whole thing being pretty much Elige vanity project. I kind of question that as it seems a bit too easy and lazy, but after Nifty in Envy it doesn't really seem too far fetched. Twistzzz leaving NA as a whole after being in Liquid and NAF being close to signing to EG strongly suggests that there's something fairly rotten within the team, but my impression from other games is that the org isn't as incompetent and blindsighted as to just let such a clear rot fester.
>>611080uhhh bros? he's on roids right?
>>611080ON THE GEAR BOIS
>>611066I don't really mean helping osee learn to t1 awp, I mean supporting a young player and helping them play under pressure, on the road, etc. vitality made a documentary from the stockholm major and it seemed like he was the only one there for misutaa and kyojin, while apex sperged outthey swapped to moses who had 0 tactical knowledge and hated it, they seem content with adren as a glorified analyst who isn't going to put his foot down about anything. unless you kick elige or sign a bigger star who he respects, I don't even think they're gonna realize you can sign another coach and keep him around for stratswhen liquid had the 2019 run, stewie was midrounding a ton and was praised for quick decisions, understanding the flow of the game, etc. by teammates, which seems to be what they want shox to slot in as, even when nitr0 is "back". you can only do so much midgame as a coach, even less as an analyst outside. I don't think they have the firepower now to make it work (or maybe they should have a better igl), but that's the logicalso>surely want someone from within your scene/culture to do that sort of thing. [Zews is] currently free
>>611090>>611091maybe, but he's also a manlet gym rat with the schedule and money for perfect nutrition/programming, with a pump and ideal lightingveins, delts, traps looking questionable though
>>611102cs pros have been roiding for years too
>>611087>Twistzzz leaving NA as a whole after being in Liquid and NAF being close to signing to EG strongly suggests that there's something fairly rotten within the teamtwistzz was almost purely about stewie, eg had potential as some combo of valde/autimatic/stew/brehze/cerq/naf I think (if NA nostalgic for 2019), and at the time liquid was only nitr0/elige without even a known awp (tried and failed to get m0nesy)>>611105yeah I know, just saying rush is pretty short iirc
Today is kino

Come to think of it, if you put Vince, Hugo and Machine in the same room, you'd have a hard fucking time saying who is who by their voice
Ugh I fucking hate these casters,the one who was saying "HE GETS 4" sounds like he has fucking nails in his throat he sounds like trash
>>611187At this point it's probably better if Imperial win because there is high risk that CPH will just shit the bed in quarters when veterans maybe will put up a fight
>>611229They're out of their depth for sure. They're dreamhack tier just like the two aussies. Don't get me wrong they all have a place in the scene. But maybe not here.
>>611231I think PGL just decided to give "new" casting talent a chance. I don't expect them to cast in the arena, that's for sure.But ignoring that yes, Moses and Sadokist would have been a much better choice.
>>611232You mean save money.
>>611233That's one way to look at it. But I'm not really bothered by them either way.
>>611234They sound fine just a little dull in terms of the content of their speech.Not saying I could do better or anything, but they use the same phrases over and over.Also their mics are poor quality, 70k people watching and they can't afford $20 pop filters.

>>611266I fucking hate that site with passion. It contributed to the decline of quality of the internet so much.
