IMO either all of playoffs or just final should be bo5 and not just bo3 thoughts

The finals could be a bo5, but the major grand finals didn't always end up as a great match, they're often blowouts. And a bo5 can be really boring and pointless if it's one-sided. The best would be if the majors had a bo5 final, but every other final would be a bo3. This way the majors would be a but more prestigious

its a cool idea,but valve can't force independent events to change their format. anyone can do as they please.

I think BO3 is fine, BO5 takes very long if its a close one, not everyone could watch it.

Dont think its the grand final format that is the problem. They need to change the majors completely to make them more epic. Right now its more or less the exact same setup as every other premier tournament. With 2-3 days of group stage and 3 days of playoffs. They need to make it more like LoL worlds maybe. (Doesnt have to take a whole month) but Valve really needs to do something to make the major cooler. Right now people care way more about the Intel grand slam.

i dont count the qualifier no. And to clarify. They dont have to make it longer. That was just one idear to make it stand out from other premiers. They need to change something

well what do you want, a triple elimination bracket with 3 group stages

Doesnt matter what i want really since i have no control but there are millions of ways to make a tournament special. If i were to make a suggestion i would like the final stages to be bigger do something cool with "The final 4" or "The final 6"

U forgot to say like The Dota International. That is one of the best tournaments ever, in every aspect of it too. It's like a celebration of the game.. meanwhile in CS, is as u said.. just like another tier 1 tournament more money related than anything else basically.. without anything that makes it special in any way. But Valve said already they let the 3rd party tournament organizers do whatever they want, and they wont get involved. (Kinda wish they did get involved talking about Valve.. cuz they do it with Dota2, and the TI is fucking EPIC).

Imo it should be more difficult to become a legend rather than change playoff format. 3 bo1s can guarantee you a playoff spot. And let's ask ourselves do we really wanna see teams like complexity in a New Champions Stage

a bo3 double elim bracket would be nice but the main problem is with qualification for major. I am in favor of doing what LoL does, giving teams from each region 3 ways to qualify
