In the final steps, the entire CS: GO scene discussed logistics, reasoning and expectations for the future when it came to putting together “mega rosters” with more than the traditional five players.

Aside from alleviating an intense schedule, possible visa concerns, and general burnouts, it's not a new idea to include multiple players in a roster, but it's the first time that different organizations have committed to the concept.

Astralis made a monumental signing by adding AWPer Jakob "JUGi" Hansen as the seventh player for his CS: GO squad. The sixth man, Patrick "es3tag" Hansen, will join the team after his contract expires on July 1st. Astralis is expected to shake up the scene by swapping his snipers and even taking the lead in the game with the goal of "two players per role".

Astralis is not the only team that is expanding. The popular Finnish squad ENCE has added 18-year-old Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen, who has grown in importance after an old VAC ban on an account and his subsequent lawsuit against counter-strike publisher and developer Valve. While Jamppi cannot play majors, he can participate in other non-major tournaments and qualifiers.

In a statement issued by Valve at the end of 2019 with the title "Keeping Things Competitive", academy teams for top teams were basically banned. ESL One Road to Rio Major's rules clearly state that “each organization and its legal entity can only acquire one license per tournament (including their qualifiers),” which prevents an organization from having more than one squad in the event cycle.

Only a handful of organizations have had academy teams like Fnatic and North in the past, but they have been relative successes. Numerous players from these academies have become part of the main lists in recent years or have developed into emerging talents elsewhere.

Maikil "Golden" Selim led Fnatic to success and helped make the team one of the best in the world again, while the North Academy alumni, Frederik "acoR" Gyldstrand and Johannes "b0RUP" Borup, the Danish talents for MAD Boost Lions and Heroic.

Because organizations can no longer retain talent through an academy, enrolling players directly with the organization can give talents time to learn and develop, but may get less attention in games, which could limit their prospects if things don't go well.

While each team has different attitudes, play styles, and strategies, there is a certain level of familiarity and understanding between the top teams and what they can expect from each other. With coaches and in-game leaders reviewing demos, tackling stratting, and familiarizing themselves with regional teams through scrims, a sixth man adds unpredictability to every lineup. The impact of a new player can dramatically change the way a team plays when they are present.

If the rumored changes to BLAST go forward and allow in-game changes, this could change the way games are played in the future, as players with stronger and weaker cards could be buried to give their team an edge.

Most recently, North had to use coach Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson instead of Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye on ESL's Road to Rio Europe because he was too uncomfortable to play for the remaining series.

As a result, North will pay a penalty if he has to use a replacement, as stated in a Valve blog post of April 2, which was tacitly updated later on April 17 to reflect this punishment.

North not only had to play with the disadvantage of a missing player and his successor was a Swedish coach in an otherwise purely Danish lineup. Previous changes in the squad before the Road to Rio format was announced have already docked 40% of the points earned over the team's performance at the 2019 StarLadder Berlin Major.

A team can have an unlimited number of eligible players in their organization. More cs: go news from plelase

I genuinely believed you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention. After all, I know it was my choice to read.. 더킹카지노

The concept is nice no doubt in it, but of course, implementing it is another difficult task. Hopefully, unemployed professors organizations who are involved in this venture will take it to the next level and for sure will make it. Guys all best wishes & prayers with you. Fingers crossed!
