Reviewing the performance of the Protea CounterStrike: GO team

The group stage draw for CounterStrike: GO at IESF's 9th World Championships - Busan.
The BOO! Protea Esports CounterStrike: GO Team faced off against Korea, Romania, Malaysia and the Philippines at IESF's 9th World Championships - Busan.

There is no doubt that the team was in a very hard group with Romania and Korea finishing in 2nd and 3rd place at the championships.

The group could be seen as a group of 'death', however, if the truth be told, any of the four groups could be viewed as groups of death.

At world championship level, there are no easy groups. Even if there were easy groups, the winners of such groups would be quickly dispatched by the more robust teams.

Thus, in my opinion, there is not a single team, professional or amateur, in South Africa that would actually have beaten either Korea or Romania to get out of the group stages.

That means that there is a serious problem with the overall standard of play in South Africa in the CounterStrike: GO esports title.

It also means, in my personal opinion, that MSSA should be looking at the CounterStrike: GO teams from a more developmental point  of view.
