What a horrible collapse by Liquid. If NAF had shown up at all, they would've had that in 4. Twistzz turned in one of the best finals performances across 5 maps I've seen in a while; constantly either top fragging or second fragging and leading all scorers by a country mile at the end. ChrisJ's clutch ace was one of the single best plays I've ever seen and I've been watching competitive CS since CPL 2001. Great Finals, all things considered.
Gotta say there is something so fucking satisfying about seeing American children chanting 'send them home' in dust 2 at 13-4 get utterly silenced. Mouz probably will continue to struggle against Astralis but they're top 3 world for sure.
I mean, I wouldn't put Mousesports top 3 either, but to say they're not even close... what teams are consistently better? Obviously Astralis, and generally NaVi as well. And then who? They just demonstrated they can hang with Liquid (which they also did a year ago in Mykonos), FaZe has fallen off a cliff, MIBR is horribly inconsistent, and the remaining top 10 teams are all just basically trading off who is going to do well on a tournament-to-tournament basis (generally fighting each other to see who gets to lose to Astralis in the Finals).
Apparently forsaken was caught cheating before, though he managed to reduce his ban from 2 years to 6 months. Also did some illegal account trading. It’s also reported that is was known that he’s a cheater. Why would you give this guy a spot on your pro roster?
Won the second solo game. This is a weird mode. It's so weird that you don't know where to place your crosshair or even look in CS. Low sense makes this even weirder.
But the core mechanics are kind of cool. The tablet shows you activity in the sectors, so you're not completely lost. The drones are a cool addition to random drops. You can shoot down wild drones, I assume?
And the map looks really bad, like the HL2 costal map.
