SUPERSTAR TEAMS: WHY THEY DON’T WORK IN CS:GO
So you think a “dream team” of the 5 best players in the CS:GO scene is the way. You fantasize with the idea of a star-spangled roster, but don’t realize that…well, you’re wrong. And this is not only because nearly everyone within the fandom is already thinking up explosive rosters; it also has to do with the game not allowing for a bunch of divas to play together.
CS:GO is a game that needs teams with plenty of nuances and delicate liaisons to function properly. The rosters have to be made up of players who hold their own roles, some of which are supportive and hidden in the background, and not stardom-material, but heavily important. And it makes sense: imagine a bunch of starlets and limelight-chasers trying to be more important than the other starlets. It doesn’t work in real-life, it doesn’t work in CS:GO.
One of the best examples is FaZe. Featuring many talented, veteran players from Europe, the team has been considered a sort of “super team”. The squad went through many changes, bringing in talent such as Major winner Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey, former NiP AWP’er Aleksi “allu” Jalli and IGL Finn “karrigan” Andersen. It was in 2017 when the biggest stars joined, one of them being Nikola “NiKo” Kovac; this was a hell of a success for FaZe; he helped in the grand final of 3-in-a-row by winning one… until the PGL Krakow Major where they were slashed from the Group Stage. The formula worked until it didn’t.
We have yet to find and work out a superstar roster that really functions in the long run, but hey, a dude can dream. Meanwhile, you can stream all these failed/successful roster tryouts from LevelUp.bet.
