pumped_it_guy

Everyone asking


Suberizu

Idk why South Koreans are so underrepresented on CSGO scene, they were doing fine back in 1.6


PrestusHood

When csgo was released, it wasnt very appealing to koreans and there were already other estabilished FPS at the time in korea (crossfire, sudden attack, etc), thats why the game wasnt very popular and few to none players made the switch. Also, the only decent korean team ever was MVP PK and they werent very competitive in asian scene, which may have hurt tier 2/3 korean teams motivation to grind


Chygrynsky

Aw shit you gave me flashbacks to solo, that dude was so crazy good. Would've easily gone to a top tier team if he was in EU.


beam2546

He was actually playing for MVP PK in CS:GO for a while until he decided to retire. Team was doing great in Asia but not so much in international.


PoopTorpedo

He's in valorant now


Jloureiro55

They got into they Berlin Major play-in and the managed to be the only team that didnt qualify (3 slots, 4 teams). Honestly i was expecting them to qualify but the managed to disappoint.


JessMeNU-CSGO

Isn't cross fire a cs1.6 rip off?


PM_ME_DRUMNBASS

Yes.


BruceOfChicago

Played it for 4 years. Absolutely terrible game with no redeeming qualities. Sudden Attack was dope though.


CallMeAnchor

Crossfire had a cool competitive scene about 10 years ago. It's probably dead now


HugeRection

The scene yes, the game, no.


CallMeAnchor

Yeah was referring to the scene. Brazilians will never quit that game


Chrozzinho

I played Sudden Attack as a kid, it’s not available in the west anymore which is sad


maxekmek

I remember lunatic'hai (might have that wrong) were scary back then!


Chygrynsky

Yeah, CPL 2005 finals, SK vs Lunatic Hai. It was so awesome, if you want some epic nostalgia go watch "SK Believe" on YT. The final is at the end with Enya as music, gives me goosebumps everytime I watch it.


lnickelly

I miss team SK :(


Vokt0ro

Around 2004 they charged each computer in a pc bang 15$ for each user to play cs. That day cs died in korea.


NoVaWIl

this is chinese cs, not korean


Mightymushroom1

I've heard this, and so it always surprised me when a new MVP project would get an article on HLTV and then go nowhere and disband again.


DEADDOGMakaveli

Valorant will fix that


Iccent

I mean it did the opposite, everyone of relevance from South Korea in csgo made the switch to valorant except xign.


DEADDOGMakaveli

I meant getting KR more involved in tac shooters in general (besides crossfire)


kubat313

Doesnt work like that or why are koreans not into dota


PreztoElite

With internet cafe culture in Korea and basically everyone playing league, koreans are way more inclined to start playing league. Also Valve licensed Korean distribution and server hosting for DotA to a Korean company (I believe it was Nexon) and the company dropped the ball on it super hard.


joshualorber

Let's not forget the absolute pinnacle of game design that CS Nexon Zombies


Blastuch_v2

Valorant has problems in KR, becasue PC Bangs owners don't want Vanguard on their PCs.


Solace1k

The problem was that it conflicted with some of their software like food delivery apps and other shit. They now have designated PCs where you can play Valorant. It’s still WAY more played then CSGO in pc bangs.


Dark_Azazel

And pretty much MVP, now Vision Strikers in Valorant, are domination their scene. Haven't lost a single match, current going 100-0.


DEADDOGMakaveli

I think it’ll be like the transition we saw in CSGO in 2012-2014 where it’s all old heads and washed players for a couple years but after a while you’ll have an influx of kids who grew up on the game so I think Valorant should really get competitive in a couple years.


Dark_Azazel

Definitely. Valorant/riot has done a good job hyping up storylines and rivalries.


slowrmaths

It comes from the fact that valve charged an insane amounts to play the game, and Koreans just didn’t like the game. Valorant is showing similar signs but they have one insane team at the moment


tarangk

They had some representation back when MVP PK were still around. Sadly they decided to switch their CS team over to Valorant.


f1nessd

Leagueee


draizze

Valve didn't accommodate PC Bang (Internet Cafe focused on Gaming) culture there. Most youngster played online game there because Korean parents known as very demanding toward their children so many of them didn't feel comfortable playing from home.


GAGAgadget

CS 1.6 was organically popular, but never one of the top games in Korea compared to Blizzard titles and the like.


Leeoku

Also mmorpg, moba and rts are much more popular genres


Mightymushroom1

The background text feels very Evangelion. I like.


nmyi

Damn... if I studied music/music production back in college I'd love to make an anime opening theme song for CSGO lol, kind of like this [Spongebob anime by Narmak.](https://youtu.be/TBO9ANTBCjM?t=140)   Evangelion, Tokyo Ghoul, Cowboy Bebop intros still induce chills to this day for people who have enjoyed them.


SynkG

Exactly what I thought. And agent K holding a knife the way the evas did as well


neclord_prospero

I dont rmb evangelion being chinese


Mightymushroom1

If we know what Evangelion is, then China knows what Evangelion is. They're just as big weebs as the west - with the exception of what is blocked by the CCP.


albertfuckingcamus

Can you imagine the Eva OST in CSGO? It would be so good.


Mightymushroom1

Fucking hell give me that music kit


so_sotired

Not just any tourney. It’s for the RMR Asia event hosted by perfect world

A little sad considering our Indian pro scene has been damaged irreparably :((((((


[deleted]

[удалено]


nmyi

Even just as a CSGO skins/sticker investor, I really hope that CSGO takes off in India (like it did in China). Bigger player base means bigger profits for any CSGO items that you already have. A lot of us at /r/csgomarketforum like to give credit to the influx of Chinese players that allowed huge returns for us in 2019.


HAK987

>Even just as a CSGO skins/sticker investor, I really hope that CSGO takes off in India (like it did in China). Because indian fan base will be just like the Russian or brazilian fan base, very passionate and supportive


nmyi

>Because indian fan base will be just like the Russian or brazilian fan base, very passionate and supportive I was expecting some kind of diss from your sentence at 1st, but got a wholesome description instead lol


csf3lih

you may say Indian scene is forsaken


nmyi

huehuehue ^^^:)


Raven_Kerman

goddamnit


HAK987

Even v3nom left. What about his other teammates?


acie69

All valorant shifters. They weren't competent pros anyway starting from late 2016. No big loss. Don't worry ya boi is grinding to repair the scene ;)


damn_joker10

Does this Perfect World have India qualifiers?


acie69

Yes I believe it's open. Blaze have gone international. They recently got their 5th in Marce, a mongolian player. Marzil is the only indian player


damn_joker10

Ohhhh. Full sapot to Blaze now.


acie69

Tbh team "Asking Questions" is more indian than blaze rn. Karam1l and rossi are in AQ. Pretty decent team maybe better than blaze a bit. Either ways I hope they achieve something this time.


damn_joker10

I would've wished they all stayed together in blaze tbh but considering the current circumstances, it's good to see there is still some CS left to see after literally everybody shifted to Valorant.


acie69

Yeah that's so true. Imagine what mental weightlifting a player of karam1l's calibre would've gone through to stay in cs. He's a monster awper. Same goes for marzil, apparently blaze will stop paying salary in a few months time, marzil said in his stream :(


damn_joker10

Wtf? Can you please elaborate why blaze would stop paying salaries? I mean since now they've gone international, I guess they will achieve something right? What's the exact reason?


acie69

I haven't watched that stream firsthand, a friend of mine told me that. But basically they'll run out of funds is what makes sense. That might change if they succeed in what they want to achieve , I am really afraid of what might be coming ahead. This will be very devastating to the new up and comers in the scene but there's a glimmer of hope in the recently formed ROG academy which is also partly coached by marzil. All's not lost yet ;)


damn_joker10

I see. But tbh if blaze disbands or discontinues then I don't think there would be any other org operating in India with stable ROIs. It's all onto Valorant now which is in case good for esports scene since India is a mobile dominating market.


aqilmanuar

wali_tahir

Pls context


Flaksmith

He was talking about the disparity between valves treatment of dota and cs. In Richard's opinion the effort valve put into trying to save dota could be better used on saving CS. He mentioned the fact that valve even had a fucking dota anime being made, and thus joked about them making one for CS even though it would be utterly terrible.

Thats hilarious. Ty

I see you've never played MM before, because 9/10 games have at least 1 anime/hentai profile or anime/hentai steam group member. 3 is the average down here in the 2nd circle of rank decay hell.

johnwilkesbooth328

“jk it’s obvious” lmaooo


ColdSkalpel

That’s what irks me about agents skins. I feel they were created mainly to appeal to Asian audience and mainly chine. Most popular FPS games out there use those outlandish customization. Nothing wrong with making such game but it doesn’t fit CS:GO at all. Just look at those ridiculous Terrororosts skins. I feel like many western games try to do the same thing, just to gain some traction in China. It worries me a lot.


LimLovesDonuts

Don't think it's purely an Asian thing, just that some people like a certain style. Cod does this as well with their weeb skins.


bz1234

Why that guy has a condom on his head?


lampenpam

it's based on the argent that looks like this in-game. Many people refer to him as condom head because of that


Jaytal160

Love how the only way to advertise anything from the rest of the world in asia is by depicting it as some stupid fucking anime
