This major
Denmark KoDSnaPs 
Ive been watching all the games so far. And Honestly, it’s Been one of the must dull majors ever. Dont get me wrong, Im super Happy Astralis won today and went on to the semis. But i dont feel any Big hype about This tournament at all. I really hope that the semi finals with MIBR v navi and Astralis v Liquid plus the finals Will be more exciting. I wouldnt mind Liquid or navi in a final or Astralis obviously. But the hype hasnt been there, the production and technical issues have been abundant etc. What made the other majors so much better, What has changed? Boston was sick even tho i didnt gave a shit about either team in the final.

the game wasn't dead back then

People Said that even with the Atlanta major and Krakow (even tho it was a fluke) and Boston. But still they had some slightly more hype? Boston wasnt THAT long ago. Imo there has come more life into the game since Boston. Even the other tournaments during This year has been better than This major.

ESL will bring hype again, also i hope they will change Major format for 2019
2018-09-22 03:01
I Think it Will be a lot better with a new format. Im not taking anything away from the teams that qualified for playoffs. But everybody knew that BIG, hellraisers and complexity were wasted spots. Even more so with Winstrike in the legends stage. I just felt that pretty much any tournament This year have been more hype except belo horizonte which was a freebie for Faze.

i doesnt matter if you go for hltv rankings or anything else ur point doesnt make sense in no way should it be posible that the clear #1 team astralis has to beat liquid #3 navi #2 and mibr #7 while other teams such as complexity who basically didnt do anything the last 3 month had to play vs 3 top 20 teams

its not like major is happening overnight everyone had plenty of time to prepare for it therefore everyone should be prepared for anyone no matter what rank they are , its a fucking major afterall u can't just cry oh i got this and that team or others got easy teams we got hard teams the system is fine if u want to win then fully prepare for it no if and buts

it so pointles talking to you but like i said earlier if you like a world in which a team like complexshitty can have a chance to win a major by only beating 1 good team astralis/liquid cuz of lucky draws + lucky bracket side the sure keep being happy with the worst system ever

u could only make it better if there was double brackets for final 8, but volvo lazy
2018-09-22 19:38
Its not like Im taking anything away from the teams that qualified and Got so far into the tournament. Winstrike didnt win anything at all and was a wasted spot. Everybody knows that because they Managed to win 3 bo1’s with lucky seeding at another major. I dont wanna take anything away and yes people that Got so far Got so far for a reason. But it still doesnt change the fact that the hype has been even more dull than any other major Ive witnessed since 2014.

I think including qualifier as part of the major was a mistake. Made major ina whole and the group stage specially feel way less important. A lot of teams more casual cs players never heard of are now part of the competition. Before, being in the major was a big deal in itself.
2018-09-22 03:04
Probably because of the amount of trash OT games (C9 vs G2 etc) and technical delays killing the hype
2018-09-22 03:05
Blast Pro had delays and a bad format but was still pretty hype. Might be because of the trash teams involved. But even the matches today and Yesterday were dull. Even tho Faze v Astralis should have been a banger of a match everyone mostly knew the outcomes beforehand.
2018-09-22 03:11
This is because (sadly) astralis doesnt arrouse any hype at all. They are just the worst "best" Team so far if you know what i mean;) nothing magical about them
2018-09-22 03:09
I love watching Astralis play due to their tactics, retarded smoke kills, nade stacks and perfect executes. The match today just seeing Them play very aggressive on Mirage was Awesome and it came to a close match. Inferno was dull, Especially cuz the map is played 1000000 times at Every tournament. But there hasnt been any like memorable moments at all from This major. Ofc Its easy for me to say cuz Im an Astralis fan and i get that people wanna see crazy flicks and noscopes. I love watching super structured CS etc. But that doesnt change the fact that that was only 1 match. All the other matches have been REALLY dull and generic. No hype or anything spray worthy/highlights. As mentioned, i didnt give a shit about Faze and c9 in Boston or Gambit v Immortals in Krakow. But it was more hype than This even tho Astralis Got far into the one in krakow. Its not because of Astralis.
2018-09-22 03:20
everyone says this about every major
2018-09-22 03:10
I know Its Said Every major but mostly for trolling. Im genuinely Honest, This major havent had the hype Ive experienced at ANY other major Ive watched.
2018-09-22 03:13
because no virtus pro

most other majors had better desks and more hype videos without all that it kinda feels like any other big tourney imo not even a hype video about how important astralis vs faze is and shit
2018-09-22 03:18
Belo horizonte had shit teams and impaired top teams, but had a massive hype mostly because of the crowd. Same for Blast Pro even tho that tournament had better teams. But you might be right, there hasnt been the rivalry stuff yet. We Can always hope itll come tomorrow in the semis! But it might be because of the lack of hype stuff posted online, funny challenges and interviews etc.

The production seems like an online league. So underwhelming. Straight after a quarter final win, there is 3 minutes of music highlights, followed by 2 minute commercials. Its just so strange. Really hoping to see BLAST Pro getting a major. Best event!
2018-09-22 03:27
Well the hype was Awesome and was there myself. I loved it! Insane hype which just went to utter shit innitially because of technical issues all the time. Crowd and teams were sick, but technical issues were shit. I Think This major has lacked the marketing aspect of it with regards to promotion. And Also the amount of weird teams to attend which are just freebies for the better teams. They could maybe have used some of blast pros tactics with regards to marketing and promotion because they Do it really Well tbh!
2018-09-22 03:36
it doesnt feel like a major no crowd hype, terrible matches, rigged draws, tier 3 teams making the playoffs
2018-09-22 03:32
The draws have been super fucked as Well.
2018-09-22 03:36
the crowd is kinda boring..
2018-09-22 03:31
Indeed
2018-09-22 03:36
good crowd basically means good event. cologne, sydney, and usually katowice crowd is great. US crowd can be a pain but at least they know how to cheer. also AGENCY FOR NEXT MAJOR OR RIOT
