vega gonna win all 3 maps
bo3 have had some amazing finals. how many amazing bo5 finals can you name?
bo3 is traditional on Majors so yeah
bo5 too long we have never have one never will
i wont watch 4+ hours grand final so im happy its a bo3 tbh
About time they change it to BO7
show me the sport in which the match lasts 5 hours. bo3 BEST FORMAT!
BO5 is fucking boring,i mean you will just sit and watch all the 5 maps?maybe not for major,because there's crowd ,who won't have power to shout all the 5 maps
BO3 IS FOR GAY COD PLAYERS
BO5 is just fucking bad because:
1. whole match takes ~ 6 hours if u include breaks etc
2. It's not representative - players get tired, more luck and accidents involved
3. Possible outcomes:
a) 1:1 - there is like no logical argument why third map should not be the final
b) 2:2 - same shit
c) 0:2 - if you can't win your enemy's map nor yours, and your best hope is on coming back from 0:2 to 3:2 you're just not fucking better, you had your chances, fuck off now
4. If this game heads towards some top level professionalism like football etc matches cannot last 6 fucking hours, have you seen any sport where the match would last 6 hours?

bo3 > bo5 all day
how do you even manage to watch the same teams play each others for like 4 hours
Name me 1 major that used bo5 final.
Bo5 is way too long and can be even boring. Also is harder for older players, where main factor could be that younger will not be as tired as old dogs and then game wins not better is skill but that with younger blood that will be less tired on 5th map so they would make less mistakes. But also game is better because when you losing 2nd map it is not like on we can do it in next but oh shiet we have to do something
bo3 > bo5
5 matches take too long, they should make a showmatch instead of those two additional maps
Bo5 is really intense and requires a higher skill ceiling, however it can get very long and tedious.
The SK vs VP Bo5 final was like 8 hours or some shit. Im not watching CSGO for that long...
A 4 hour Bo3 final is as exciting, but I also dont have to watch all day. Also players aren't so tired of playing at that point, so you imo its actually more competitive.
There is no need for BO5.... It would be 3:0 for SK :D
BO5 is good for the viewer but for the player its too much
and SK will be in the final because felps will play like a god
remember when adreN standin for liquid during major? he plays like a fucking god that tournament after getting bench
Doesn't matter how many maps they will play.
VP gonna win all of them.
bo3 > bo5
quality > quantity
Don't see the problem here at all. Every CS:GO Major to date has had a BO3 and there is no reason Valve/ELEAGUE shouldn't do the same thing.
It's your opinion a Grand-final needs a BO3, but there are many reasons who it wouldn't likely be possible.
Have a good day.
I think Valve addressed this argument previously. They have the philosophy that the difference in results in BO3 vs BO5 doesn't vary greatly. Therefore, there is no point in putting on two/three more maps, increasing costs for the major, losing viewer ship by game 4/5.
However, I disagree with this, as you want a decisive result for who the best team is.
This is taken from another thread, which I wrote:
Ok, I prefer BO5, as then there is no doubt who the better team is (in that tournament). Each team gets there 2/3 of their strongest for sure. It allows time for the players to warm up on the day, get used to surroundings and the crowd. The best way to crown a champion.
However, from a viewers perspective, it is hard to pay full attention for 5 maps of CS. I can't play 5 pugs in a row, I get too bored, and viewing it as an observer is incredibly difficult to keep focus.
But, it does reduce the chance of upsets which is nice every once in a while, particularly for smaller tournaments. On the contrary, if you go down two maps, it is unlikely you are going to do a reverse sweep, given how momentum based CSGO (and esports in general) are.
Fnatic v NIP
Have A Dumb day
Fnatic is best team in world faze is noob niko noob in final but olofmeister is pro player.
3 days off between group stage and playoffs lmfao what is going on
good, it should be bo3.
bo5 is too long.
TBS wouldn't want a video game on their network for 5+ hours.
would be great G2 vs VP in the Final
The final of epicenter started at 4:00 aand ended at 22:20
See the problem ?
bo5 is fucking boring and only nerd would watch the whole thing
+1 we wait like 8 months for this shit, should be a BO5
SK Gaming (I feel as if SK will just totally show up this major and will 2 - 1 FaZe in semi's)
Cloud9 (I dunno man...NA pride, great form, the prophecy of Ska getting out of groups for once...)
BO5 is terrible. if they get to the fifth map the teams are so tired and tilted from earlier mistakes that they play like shit.
BO5 is just shit
It never gets to the 5th map
We had 7-8 BO5s in 2017 and just one of them was exciting
Not every grand final has to be a bo5
faze vs astralis or g2
cuz sk is playing with felps
loool.Realy it's soo good b05,but fucking valve
For me bo3 are more exciting, and many people get bored after 3 hours straigh of CS so its the best format for the public
lol fuck bo5s, what virgin level are you when u watch a complete bo5 match
ELEAGUE MAJOR WITH MD3 GRAND FIN\L? WHAT THE BULLSHIT
Bo5 takes to long fuck that bo3 is perfect setup, both teams get a map they like and the last one is middle ground so why you all crying for bo5's... Do you really wanna watch a five hour marathon of cs dude...
anders would be a better caster if he'd just be quiet all the time instead.
i hate when grand finals are BO3. Grand finals should be always BO5, or BO21
thats so dumb... bo5s are so fun to watch
Bests premier BO3 finals in 2017 (8 in total)
Astralis vs VP el major
SK vs VP Dh las vegas
Astralis vs Faze starladder
Sk vs Faze ecs 3
Sk vs Astralis blast
Faze vs Mouz ecs 4
Bests premier BO5 finals in 2017 (8 in total)
Sk vs VP epicenter
Major final should be bo7.Its so much on the line and it doesnt happen often during the year.So thats like 2 bo7 finals in a year,or 3,which is not a large amount considering what u are winning by just participating in it
7 maps in the map pool but you only have to know and win on two to win the grand final, sad indeed
Major Final is and was always a BO3 why change it? BO5 taking too long
Addicted kids don't having life beside cs so they want to watch fucking bo5 to fill their boring day. Sad.
bo7 groups and 3xbo7 finals
BO5s are too tiring for players and viewers.
wdym back in my day it was bo3 for all the best majors ever.
Bo5 is fucking retarded and boring
naaaaaah I was hoping it would be a BO5
I think final should be in this order
who the fuck cares man, this game is seriously on the way out
