The DH organizators are retards how can u make that this teams play for 1 spot, and teams like Gambit are going to play offs. Stupid system, and dumb organizators Gambit clearly didnt deserve this spot they are not even t1 team
I'm not sating they didn't deserve the wins, I'm saying that I don't think winning two BO1's is a good way to advance to playoffs since it rewards teams with upset potential that might otherwise have shallow map pools, which leads to fucking abysmal quarter finals
I feel like you're one of those guys who live in an ideal world. No organizer is going to construct bo3s for group stages unless it's the decider match. Have all bo3s would cost an insane amount of money, time, and potential risks. The Swiss system of three bo3s to advance to the playoffs is great but it still has its flaws. There's never going to be "the system" everyone agrees upon.
The idea that a BO3 should be required to advance instead of two BO1's defies logic just because tournament organizers doesn't wanna pay the money? Please. Don't make yourself seem more stupid than you are.
By this system the best (current in group stage) team will secure the #1 spot, and the 2nd. will go through bo3 and eventually win that. (show other teams more strats/positions on maps than necessarily.
Another thing you should think about is why would teams want to play each other bo3 in group stage when the bo3 and eventually bo5 in the grand final will happen later in the tournament.
Players prefer to play bo3s even for groups or multiple BO1s. There's been multiple tweets by pro players that want extended group stages but lets be honest, Tournament hosts don't want to spend more money.
I don't really like this system... I believe if you are going to make them play bo1's at least be a round robin system so every team plays each other in the group and top 2 teams advance. If there is any tie's then they can play a bo1 instead of going by rounds.
Teams play 1 game a day which is terrible for the teams and the viewers...
