Counter-Strike and esports in general usually have never had the debate of home crowd advantage for teams. With CSGO Desk analyst, Thoorin saying that the home crowd advantage is a myth, the topic has seen varied opinions. Cloud9’s player Rush has felt the same thing as he feels the crowd motivates teams and players all the time. This was also the case during Cloud9’s Boston Major victory.
To anyone who says there is no home crowd advantage in CS, you are simply wrong. I've experienced it and it really does make a difference.
