Who should host the next Major?
 | 
Australia EzKK 
The last Faceit Major was a complete disaster, the major wasn't great and I certainly didn't enjoy it myself, but who do you guys think should host the next major? For me, I really was BLAST to host a major, that'll be really interesting to watch, but other than BLAST, Epicentre is a really nice choice too. That's all IMO so feel free to comment down what you think.

The CIS region deserve a major, both Starladder and Epicenter could pull it off. I personally wouldn't mind a DH major in Sweden tho ;)))

I know it but how is it related to what I say ? Do you want every major to be hosted in a country with that timezone? I said cis could get one major and fuck us just like it happens to them every time the major is in the US...

2018-10-03 10:41
Starladder would be similar to FACEIT. Lack of hype, cheap production (compared to ESL, ELEAGUE). Maybe less tech issues and surely there wouldn't be FPS problems at fucking major. EPICENTER is just a cringefest that should never be a major. Russian announcer with wrong team pronouncation and bad in general, weird stage decorations, weird opening with stuntmen and bad acting, massive and epic looking plastic trophy. Everything looks like a bad show for children.
2018-10-03 03:23
+1 EPICENTER is a shit-show.
2018-10-03 15:36
I don't think blast can host a major because blast is owned by the same company that owns astralis and also heroic I think

I want PGL to get a 2nd chance, I know their 1st major had a lot of problems but I still remember their PGL season 1 from 2015 which was one of my favourite events ever when it comes to production value.

+1 PGL will get an other chance in cs for sure, they have legit hosted 7 Dota 2 majors at this point together with Valve. The next PGL CS major will be awesome! The PGL Krakow major playoffs was flawless from a attendee perspective, but they had some major delays and issues with the group stage which left all the online viewers with a bad impression. Which is why cs fans dislike pgl, the krakow major was kind of a fluke with the games also, Immortals vs Gambit in the grand final lul
2018-10-03 02:42
Pgl actually revolutionised csgo production more than anyone else. Pgl were the first to have the floating camera thing and also the first to show instant replays from other perspectives than what was stream. ( let's say someone gets and ace and camera wasn't there during the stream. The replay after the round would instantly show his perspective)
2018-10-03 09:42
That's exacly why I loved their PGL season 1. They don't deserve all the hate they got for the major.

The next major is already being hosted by iem in katowice man first major of next year. After that iem is usually a good host so is dreamhack.
2018-10-03 02:29
Epicenter has always been a very good event so far. I'd give them a try at hosting majors

2018-10-03 04:09
Yeah, it would be cool to see BLAST or Epicenter, first time hosting major of course, in ties with valve. I would like to see an Eleague major again, maybe we could have a dreamhack before, but I've always like Eleagues production. And, who do I think it will go to? Honestly no idea. Just hoping for the usual one NA, one Europe, and if they had a smaller (valve sponsored, but not major system, like normal tournament but maybe some stuff in game) tournament in Asia/Oceania
2018-10-03 02:33

Africa has a combined total of THREE round wins in all majors combined. Only one team has ever played at a big event because they got invited. It would have to be held in south africa, which besides the fact has practically no scene, is about as far away from any other developed scene as possible. Name ONE good reason to have an african major. There are none besides the fact no tournament has been there (for very good reasons) And while UK has no relevant teams either, at least it is in Europe, surrounded by other developed scenes, and home to one of the bigger event organizers. South america i could see an argument for, but i dont think right now is a good time based on the state of the scene.

Then have something like an IEM event (sydney and shanghai as examples), not one of the two BIGGEST events of the whole year... the major is supposed to be the biggest tournament there is, not a "lets bring attention to a scene with no competitive team" event

If people actually go to the stage I don't see any problem at all. Every years both majors are hosted in NA and EU, I would be fun if they decided to host one in Asia or Oceania, idk Ofc they can't host a major in a country like Eritrea but countries like South Africa are very capable. "South america i could see an argument for, but i dont think right now is a good time based on the state of the scene" This phrase is cancer, na was always shit 'till like 2015 and it always gets majors, (if that is what u meant) last year vp was fucked up already and poland got a major.

#46 Also, based on cluj, it is HIGHLY unlikely south africa would fill out. And cluj was next door to other scenes compared to south africa. Also, no need to pull out the "thats cancer" card, we can have a conversation without getting like that. You do have a good point with NA not being good when we got Columbus. I feel it was a bit different as NA does host a number of other big events, but there definitely was a lot of (understandable) pushback when it was announced. It ended up being fantastic, and a SA major could very well be too. I would be a little worried mibr's slump and the secondary team (whatever they are called these days) being pretty much memes of the community at this point negatively impacting perception of the event, but maybe with mibr's recent resurgence it could be a good time.

The determination point of a country hosting or not a major is simple: sponsorship. As e-sports are not popular in Africa they (with they I mean the organisations like esl mlg etc) do not find sponsors for the event, that's why they don't host any big event. Na is simply the biggest (idk if Korea have taken this position over) e-sport market in the world, so even tho they are terrible at certain game, people will still go the stage and cheer, sponsorship will be good etc. It doesn't make any sense when you say that br teams are/were "memes", first of all mibr never dropped down the top 10, I think that's good enough. And considering the lack of events here, the search of a ticket for a major would be gigant. And ofc, e sports are already a big thing, so getting sponsors is not a bit of a problem. I really do believe Australia, Brazil, Denmark and France deserve a major over US, Sweden, Poland etc

you mean after ESL (IEM Kato 2019)? MLG definitely MLG but that's probably not gonna happen cuz of ties with Shitivision. Another Dreamhack Major would be awesome and Eleague has proven to be a competent host as well so wouldn't mind them either. Personally I'd like to see a major fully hosted by Valve (ala the Internaional) not just sponsored by them. As for locations: Berlin (Mercedes-Benz Arena), Paris (AccorHotels Arena), Rotterdam (Ahoy), Amsterdam (Ziggo Dome or Amsterdam ArenA), Nice (Allianz Riviera Stadium), Monaco (Salle Gaston Médecin), Toronto (Air Canada Centre), Brussels (Brussels Expo), and finally Munich (Audi Dome). Those are all locations which I would think make for great venues.

MLG Columbus again, amazing crowd and great production. If not in the U.S, then how about a Canada major in Toronto. And if not in NA then how about a Copenhagen major, Denmark is long overdue a major. I personally want ESL One NY to be a major, but I'm biased as I live in NYC.
2018-10-03 03:11
We already know that ESL will be hosting the next major through IEM (Which means there is no Facebook deal to hold to lucky for us viewers) I'm actually super excited for this one, though outside of ESL which would've been my top pick anyways I'd certainly have to say, MLG, Eleague, and Dreamhack are all very competent. I think I'd only want to see a Blast tournament if they put a good format in place, they're production quality is actually pretty good outside of that. Only ones I can think of off the top of my head.

2018-10-03 05:51
Personally I think ESL handles them the best and I'd prefer to get a well handled event for this next one after the shitshow of the major FACEIT's was. For ones I want to see TRY it out, StarLadder, BLAST Pro Series, and EPICENTER are all interesting. I'd say with the production quality BLAST has I'd be most interested to see one from them with a decent format. Starladder after and then EPICENTER, never really got to watch much EPICENTER stuff so that might be why.

2018-10-03 04:38
Well since ESL is getting IEM Kato 2019 obv for the second major I hope for one of the following: A return of MLG that sadly won't happen because of shitivision Eleague event here in the states again DH event in either Sweden or maybe Denmark :) Epicenter event in CIS (honestly worried starladder would cheap out on production for their event)
2018-10-03 04:44
