CS:GO Dream Teams
By: Kyle “CurFyTheFriend” Mendham
In CS:GO we have 4 major different areas of the world that play CS (NA, EU, AS, CIS). I will be explaining to you the best teams that you could make out of those regions. I will be trying to make teams that make sense and are reasonable, not just stacking a team with players that are really good, but in some cases I will because it’s the only possibility that I see working for these teams. I will be starting with Asia and for Asia I will be including people form the Oceanic region as well.
Asia Dream Team.
For the Asian players that I can see making a good team I would have to Bntet, Mo, jks, kaze and DD.
I would make Bntet the IGL/ Star player. He’s been putting up insane stats and deserves a team that works around him and I think they can do that with him.
I’d have Mo as the second awper and he could second entry with DD as the main entry, I feel they have the aim to play of each other and would destroy at second tier of CS.
Jks has literally been the best player on Renegades for a while and his stats show so. He could in my opinion make it out of the Asian scene and join a team in NA like Rickeh did.
Kaze was a really good player on Flash Gaming during the Eleague major and I can see him being on this team as the main awper, He’s been a pretty good awper and He would be a nice addition to this team.
DD would be a very good first entry player, he has good solid aim and he’s a good enough player to get the first pick and very good info for his team, With Mo behind him I can see them doing a lot of damage together.
I can see this team beating high tier 2 and low tier 1 teams. Teams I can see them matching up well versus teams on the terms of Gambit or Cloud 9.
CIS Dream Team.
The dream CIS team I see as the “Dream team” is Na’Vi minus Zeus and Edward
The reason I would cut Zeus is because he can’t frag at all, he’s just above Fifflaren and we know how that story goes, the team does good for a year or 2 and then Fifflaren (Zeus) does bad and they replace him. I feel that even tho Zeus and Na’Vi are doing well as a team right now, I can’t see them doing anything once 2019 comes around. Also if S1mple starts doing bad or drops of 20% the team won’t be top 5 at all. Zeus could definitely become Na’Vi’s coach and they could drop Kane.
So after saying that I think that ANGE1 would be an awesome replacement because he can frag as much as he dies. Also he’s a pretty good IGL.
For Edward I’d like to see a player like Styko take the role, Styko will hold that site for himself, he will flash for players like Simple and Electronic. Styko is kinda a quiet person which I don’t see working in this team, but with time I can see this team doing fairly well.
Styko is also just a very good support role and that is what this dream team would need.
Reason for S1mple being on this team is for reasons we all should know. But for the people who don’t. S1mple is one of the best players to ever touch the game of CS. He puts up fraging that I’ve never seen before, the only person you could compare him to is Niko on Mouse Sports, But still S1mple takes the icing on the cake.
Electronic is the second best player on Na’Vi and I’d easily put him in for top 10 player this year. He’s also been putting high numbers up. I compare Electronic and S1mple to the Krimz and Olof time where they worked of each other so well, I’d say best CS duo ever in CS.
Flamie has been playing very well for the role he needs to play, Na’Vi does not need any more star players so he perfectly fits where he is. He is fraging well and just needs to be a solid player and that’s what he is doing so he will fit in this super team very well.
So overall I feel that Flamie, Electronic , ANGE1 , S1mple and Styko would make the best lineup for the CIS region.
Also I know I just kinda inserted the players into Na’Vi, I just feel like Na’Vi is pretty much the best CIS team.
Europe Dream Team.
For the European side I see the team as Astralis. I can’t say anyone on Astralis has been doing poorly nore can I say I want one of the members to be removed. I don’t think this is the “Astralis era” because there are good teams like FaZe and Na’Vi out there who have both proven that they can beat Astralis. I’d love to see this team win the grand slam that is hosted by ESL and Intel.
North America Dream Team.
For the North American dream team I’d have to go with players from all different North American teams besides a few.
To start out for this team I’d have Elige, Twistzz, Tarik , nathE and Daps
Elige would be the star player and I’d let him have as much freedom as he needs as he’s a very good aimer and can easily out aim other North American players. Elige has played at the high level for a while and has been to a major final. (ESL One Cologne 2016)
Twistzz is a very good up and coming NA player and could be one of the best players in the coming years, Twistzz is still very young (18) and has so much time to become better and understand the game. I see Twistzz to become a top 20 player in 2019 and still has a chance this year if he steps his game up. Twistzz would be a second star with Elige.
Tarik has been outstanding this year besides Cloud 9 downfall in the early spring of 2018, During this time Tarik was still playing pretty decently and could carry C9 with the helps of Stewie. With the departing of Stewie to Sk Gaming (Soon to be MIBR) Tariks game fell off really badly and is still not in form now that he has joined back with Stewie in MIBR and is still playing poorly. Tarik would be a entry player
nathE has been playing very well on NRG and really deserves to be on a top NA team. I think if a team gave him a chance he could really make people surprised by how good he would be. I see nathE playing in more of a support role on this team.
Daps would be the IGL of this team and would play heavy support because of his lack of fraging. I feel that Daps is one of the best IGL’s in the NA scene which is not saying much saying we don’t have many IGL’s in NA.
