i agree. 1. No na teams in NA tournament 2. Shitty crowd 3. Why gambit there? shit team. undeserved spot. everyone would win gambit. 4. no one cares, 450k viewers, (MORE VIEWERS IN GROUP STAGE) 5. no one cares about gambit, fanatic, or north 6. real final astralis - navi was played already 7. NO HYPE. PLACE NOT EVEN HALF FULL, NOONE CARES! /discuss

u cant now bet for semis after quaters are over? don't challenging in pickem, don't know. it's pretty shit is so :( (maybe because of new group stage system)
2017-01-27 22:28
you're right about the shitty crowd but otherwise games are not bad. This is still 1st map and fnatic is one the best teams on Cache. + no1 cares about fnatic and North??
2017-01-27 21:45
Why you so mean? Im in the crowd.
2017-01-27 21:46
Just doesn't seem to be as hype as Cologne or Katowice. I don't see any real supports or fans (for example, fnatic fans sitting together and doing chants). The crowd just cheers and claps.

what do u want from NA crowd? not a lot of fans of EU teams there. It's still pretty good they hyped for everybody who playing. Much better than Katowice, where a lot of cheering for VP and a lot of hate for others.
2017-01-27 22:26
I agree. I think this crowd has been awesome. They might not scream or be noisy, but they're still cheering for great plays. Best of all, they cheer for everyone. There's not as many obnoxious fans who only cheer for one team. Also, there's waaay less buffoonery than any other crowd. Not a single dab, a bare minimum of shitty meme signs, and even the children don't make fools of themselves when they're on camera.

I can't hear you!!
2017-01-27 22:51
well the real final was played already and only 550k viewers. people say cs:go is growing but even last major we had more viewers in quarterfinals. and dude no one cares about north or fanatic either. imagine if nip or cloud9 would be plaiyng.
2017-01-27 21:47
NA teams have been really bad in 2017, so they couldn't make it through. I'm not sure how you can say that no one cares about fnatic. They have so many fans despite them not playing like they were last year. same with North. Of course it has 550k viewers, Most of NA is either in school or work, Gambit doesn't have a lot of fans so it's normal.
2017-01-27 21:50
i expected optic to play in semis atleast. fnatic doenst have big fanbase anymore and heard about the swedish shuffle? old fnatic making comeback. that is hype.
2017-01-27 21:55
OpTic is shit, they got lucky at eleague s2 also fnatic still has the 3 player core of the old fnatic lineup and these 3 (olof, krimz, dennis) have lots of fanboys.
2017-01-27 21:56
they are not shit. they didnt bootcamp before major. (didnt prac against any eu teams)
2017-01-27 22:02
still, they didn't look solid, barely scraped through flipside and got rekt by godsent who were struggling.
2017-01-27 22:06
sure but still. would rather see nip/cloud9 actual big names instead of fucking gambit
2017-01-27 22:09
gambit is big names...god like names

Please mate. Be HLTV positive instead of the whine. Its sad about US teams, but what can you do.

Is HLTV positive new slang?

2017-01-27 21:50
Seems like you're trying to change the entire userbase of HLTV to be positive! We can not let that happen. We need more irrelevant top 10 lists, and topics that have no affiliation to CS or any game (rate this girl topics). And we need more top 10 pornstar threads!
2017-01-27 21:55
Hey Martin, if it's not a secret, could we expect a mute/ignore button? there are way too many baiters/trolls on this site which really ruins the experience, I understand that its impossible to ban them all, so something like this would be really nice.
2017-01-27 22:18
1. Audience just dont care because there is no NA team to cheer for. 2. No NIP, Cloud9, Optic, or even Liquid (all 3 have huge fanbase) 3. Half empty place 4. Less viewers than other majors during quarters

2017-01-27 21:46
dude, no one cares. look 400k viewers LOL. every past major had more in the same games. look the place, its HALF EMPTY!
2017-01-27 21:54
well since its a theather (rip english) and not an arena, the number of chairs is very low. and today is friday maybe that explain things idk, still quarters
2017-01-27 21:55
"still quarters" but every past major had alot more viewers 700k atleast.
2017-01-27 22:04
yeah sadly... the only thing I can think is the Friday, people don't have time or still at work/school and with those shitty team roosters, not much action, and people are kinda boring and dont watch

worst bait ever lmao 1) who fucking cares 2) its 3 pm on a friday, everyones at work/school 3) gambit is a very good team, they went 3-1 for a reason. they will probably go to semis 4) its 3 pm on a friday 5) lol what? fnatic and north have plenty of fans (denmark, sweden) and gambit has russia 6) astralis-navi, yes it was good, but if the final is astralis-vp, that'd be just as good 7) again, it's 3 pm on a fucking friday, everyones at work. people said the same shit about every major, stop being such a dumbass and think for once
2017-01-27 21:47
Dude, its a fucking NA MAJOR and no NA team in the quarters? i dont give a fuck as i dont cheer for them but i understand that no one cares. im not fucking baiting u dum shit. look the fucking place! its half empty!!
2017-01-27 21:50
cologne was a GERMAN MAJOR and no GERMAN team in the quarters? must've been shit!!! i hope u are baiting, if ur not then see a fucking doctor the place is empty because its FRIDAY AND PEOPLE ARE AT WORK/SCHOOL fucking idiot

Just your opinion.. Also, u gotta remember that this major is being broadcast on live TV in some countries, and also on other media like youtube.. So the viewcounter on Twitch is not at all the full amount of people watching. Still many exciting games to go, upsets can still happen, though there are some pretty defined favourites, just like it should be.
2017-01-27 21:48

gambit was legends and now became legends again, undeserved? lul. also they make it 3-1 from groups. And now they will maybe upset fnatic, but d2 will be pretty hard for them, but still they could :) nothing is over before it's over :) optic was shit this major, probably because rush can't turn on gear on major. liquid is shit without simple, but yeah, they was unlucky, lost 2 OT's and get astralis in last match. but tbh they got 2 weak teams and 2 medium teams in groups, they should won envy and faze, if they cant win teams like this, they have nothing to do in playoffs. I don't see any team they could beat in playoffs, only gambit and maybe faze(their bad they lost for them in groups and didn't qualify), but it still would be pretty hard and close matches.

1) NA teams lost, this doesn't make it a shit tournament. It's their fault they lose. This is a Major, not NA or EU tournament. 2) Might not sound that loud if you're watching a stream. 3) Gambit won DH recently and upset some teams. They're not shit. If they are, why did they win 3 matches then? 4) Viewers count will probably go up in the interesting matches. 5) Don't watch if u don't care about them. 6) Every person has his tastes, lets say the final will be VP - Astralis, isn't this one also very interesting? 7) Yeah, as Taz said in some interview, it feels like Eleague season 3.
2017-01-27 21:56
1. but it makes a shit tournament, sure they lost but imagine major in eu with no EU Teams. its the same thing 2. isnt loud 3. gambit it SHIT AND BORING TEAM! no real stars, no one really cares, really small fanbase overrall 4. its still low 5. fuck off 6. so many dead matchups 7. shit

And I know a lot of people outside CIs also cheering for them, even in NA. there is real stars, but seems u don't know about it. They stars not only in CIS but also in the world. shit team? why is shit? they made legends last major and made this major, and it's still not over for them. also they won DH lately. Pretty decent team with potential. Why they boring? maybe for your taste. it's okay.

2017-01-27 22:32
Casters and e-league crew is doing their best to entertain tho, I prefer those casters over ESL(with pansy and some other wannabes). EU is way more CS oriented for a good reason, NA feels more like a League of Legends fans(Worlds finals were super entertaining with a great and LIVING crowd).
2017-01-27 22:00
doesnt matter. this just doenst have the MAJOR feeling this feels like esl/esc finals. another generic NA weekend event. major needs a big STAGE and big crowd.
2017-01-27 22:01
For me it matters, gotta appreciate thier efforts to make this event as good as they can(because they've got NO influence on crowd at all). Big stage would look even more ridiculous if they can't even fill The Fox Theatre(which btw. is really small, only 4 678 seats).

no, but my statements are true. this is the shittiest major. everyone agrees even in this topic. its not a opinion. all big names already gone.
2017-01-27 22:14
Listen, there was a time when everybody agreed that sun goes around the earth. I don't know if what you're saying is true, and if everybody shares your opinion, but even if they do, it doesn't mean it's true.
2017-01-27 22:21
are u fucking dumb? audience of 20,000 vs audience of 4500 just look the facts RETARD..
2017-01-27 22:28
And do you think that audience is the only thing that should be taken into consideration, when you decide whether a tournament is good or not? Disregarding the fact that good and bad are relative concepts.
2017-01-27 22:30
you start to annoying me u dum fuck. itsa fact. 4500 place and not even half full.. LOL??? wake up???? compared to loud audience of 20k which have more hype. rekt fuck u
2017-01-27 22:35
Have I ever undermine that? I didn't say that smaller audience is better, I just said that it isn't the only factor in deciding about tournament's "goodness". What's more important. You're acting like I was having a quarrel with you whether this major is worst or whather it isn't. As a matter of fact, I didn't give any opinion about this tournament. I just questioned what you said, that's all. Who's dumb now, mate?

u think writing like. This, makes. U wiser? or better? audience plays BIGGEST part in the event. even good audience can make shitty or small tournament hype. with loud reactions/chants and so on. this doesnt have either as no one cares. look the topics. this got 200 answers and almost everyone agrees with my points. everyone makes topics like "shittiest major" for a reason. reason what is true. just accept it idiot kid. and yeah u are fucking dumb ass.

I think that the worst kind of idiots, are arrogant ones.

gambit undeserved, really ahahahah they just did 3-1
2017-01-27 22:43
ROFL BabyRage Gambit is good with Zeus, and a lot of CIS fans cheering for them. In this major was only one rly bad team. It's HR. They was really unprepared. A lot of close games, a lot of good clutches. And a lot of skilled teams, i think last major in 2016 was the worst. Swiss system is rly good.

I'm here for good CS and it's true, Na'Vi - Astralis would very well have been the Grand Final. Still hope there will be good matches coming, let's not forget VP and SK!
2017-01-27 22:54
and why when astralis will lose to gambit anyway?
