Black Ops 2 was the best CoD ever. If CoD did like other eSports and just keep 1 really popular game around for 5-10 year, then CoD would be huge with BO2.

Major grand final should be Bo5, should be the only event with Bo5.
2019-01-27 15:29
Tournaments 1.000.000$+ should be Bo5 Finals. But especially majors, you want to crown a champion, that means they should be able to play more than 2 good maps in their pool
2019-01-27 15:33
So fking rare that bo5's are as exciting as bo3's though. For one each map in a bo3 is much more important and exciting as there is more on the line since you only need to win 2. In bo3's you see better CS aswell since you will have 3 maps that both teams are great at were as in a bo5 you can get alot of scrappy maps aswell as bo5 series often ending 3-1 or 3-0 which isn't too exciting to watch aswell as sometimes being a bit drawn out.
2019-01-27 16:09
that is correct

Got an idea put bo5s only at major grand finals, after the semifinals, vote for the maps on the finals the same day the semis is played(so that they can prepare for the maps) Have a break for 3-4 days for the players to prepare. I mean, a major is purposed to be the most prestigious tournament of the year, why not make it last some days, also, I believe the finals should be prepared the most. This way players wouldn't be tired and they would be prepared.
2019-01-28 08:46
Thats not going to happen,TOs wont rent a venue for 3-4 days while doing nothing in it
2019-01-28 08:45
Doesnt need to be nothing, could be 3rd place deciders, show matches, some couch talking, etc.
2019-01-28 08:47
Teams who lost can play vs fans etc etc etc, there's alot of stuff you can fit in 3 days, hell, there would be tons of things you could fit in a weeks pause even.
2019-01-28 08:48
You can fill it if you want it very much but from a money perspective,the organizers would have a huge net negative,renting a venue is huge money and as I've heard TOs already have a hard time making money. The only realistic solution would be one day off imo
2019-01-28 08:52
Na my idea is super realistic, but they have to do it for the views and for the fans, not for the money, cus they won't gain that much I guess. Viewers would love it though. There's already one day off for major grand finals, which is too little, obviously.
2019-01-28 08:53
Thats not how the world works,tournament organizers can shove the love of the fans up their ass if they are 300k in negative
2019-01-28 09:21
They won't go negative. but they won't gain nearly as much as now.
2019-01-28 14:19
They would. Only 1 day off would work. And even then. They’d have to have a concert and 3rd place decider on that day off. And a all star match too.
2019-01-30 19:29
Is there any proof of this? :P
2019-01-30 22:35
Yea the fact that no TO has ever rented an empty arena for three days is your proof lmao
2019-01-30 23:10
Hm? Dota2 tournaments can last for weeks, same wiht league, why should there be a difference for CS, lmao

Exactly, the big venues are like 50K/Day. Renting a big venue for 5-6 days is enough. 2 weeks would mean bankruptcy...
2019-01-28 08:56
What's the point of vetoing days before when both teams are already 100% sure what the maps will be considering they both have perma bans. The only time I recall an unpredicted ban was when Liquid banned nuke instead of train in a bo5 final vs astralis. The delay between the semis and final would probably make for a better final but It's not ideal for the organiser to have a venue for several extra days just for one match, each day that venue is not available for other organisers they probably have to pay so they would pay for an empty arena which makes 0 sense. However I think that we should start seeing bo5 finals in the major, we really want the best team to win in the most fair way possible. I don't care if we get a bit less exciting finals, I don't want to see a C9/Gambit scenario again.
2019-01-28 09:02
If Bo5 were all like SK VP in epicenter it was a great thing, but you are right they mostly go 3 - 0 There's also another reason, the tournaments with bo5 finals are usually not the best tier 1 tourneys, so the teams are kinda unbalanced ... if it happens in major where a championship and huge money is on the line probably we wont see 3 - 0s, at least its what I think
2019-01-28 14:15
Why wouldn't we see a 3-0 now? Lets say this major had a bo5 final, this is probably the time where its most likely to be a 3-0 or 3-1 final considering how good astralis is. Even if it might be worse entertainment wise I still think we should have a bo5 final in majors since we want to see the best team win.
2019-01-28 14:20
The problem is Astralis is way too overpowered yeah, I agree with you
2019-01-28 14:25
It their were 9 maps in play I could support bo5 but only banning two maps makes for sloppy deciders
2019-01-30 19:30
Yea and even if we get all 5 maps is so draining for the players to play it all through which often results in them not performing as well and losing focus. Bo3 is just ideal as it makes more sense schedule-wise, you have time for analyst segments between maps and for players to have a break and reset. It's also ideal for viewers since the teams are very famillar with the maps played in the bo3 and considering each map is more important as you only need to win 2 Imo its more exciting.
2019-01-30 19:52
Agree that for the viewer it is more exciting to watch a BO3. Then the teams should practise more maps. I think it is fair to crown the winner that have a good understanding of more than 2 maps. Winners should be able to play all maps:-)

The important thing about bo5 is that you don't get to ban 2 maps, wider mappool matters. And i have no idea how often 2-0 or 2-1 comebacks happen, or why that is such a big argument :/ 2-1 comebacks should happen about as often as 1-0 comebacks, mathematically thinking. The main problem with bo5 is that it takes too darn long, full 5 games might last as long as 8 hours with all the breaks and delays.

hltv.org/results?startDate=2018-01-01&en.. All 4 stars LAN matches in 2018 are listed in that link. 6 BO5s. 1. Faze 2 x 3 fnatic - it went 1x0, 1x1, 1x2, 2x2 then 2x3. 2. Faze 3 x 0 Astralis - 2 maps went to overtime and third map went 16-14. 3. Faze 3 x 2 mousesports - it went 1x0, then 1x2 and finally Faze came back and won 3x2. 4. mousesports 3 x 2 Liquid - it went 1x2 and mouse cameback and won 3x2. 5. Astralis 3 x 0 Liquid - Full dominance from Astralis except for first map. 6. Astralis 3 x 1 Liquid. So we had 2/6 of then were a team came back from being 2-1 down, making it 33% of time, does not seem that rare to happen. Also, it's worth to mention that 50% of the BO5s went full distance (3x2 results) and the 3x0 from Faze x Astralis was a pretty entertaining match with first map going full distance (16x14) and the other two going overtime.
2019-01-27 16:02
I suppose you're right. But half the time I find myself tuning out of bo5s after one team goes 2-0 or 2-1. I remember IEM Oakland 2017, which nip won 3-2, where I had to miss the final map due to it happening at 2/3am. So I had to go to sleep not knowing which team would win it; it fucking sucked.

Name at least 5 good bo5.I remember only G2-Luminosity ( hltv.org/matches/2302648/luminosity-vs-g.. ), FaZe-Fnatic ( hltv.org/matches/2320086/faze-vs-fnatic-.. ), FaZe-NiP ( hltv.org/matches/2317297/nip-vs-faze-iem.. ), NaVi-Fnatic ( hltv.org/matches/2299888/fnatic-vs-natus.. ). But let's be real, only G2-Luminosity, FaZe-Fnatic was great,while other 2 was just "fine",rest of bo5's is boring af.
2019-01-27 15:52

I want to say that b05 is not a right format for the major.In CS:GO history we had like 15 bo5 and most of them was boring,not because of fast 3-0 or long 3-2 scores,but because of map scores like 16-6 16-3 16-8 just take a look at this hltv.org/matches/2301187/luminosity-vs-f.. thare was 2 intense maps and quick boring 16-3 cache between them.
2019-01-27 16:03
If it was bo3 inferno wouldnt have been played lol
2019-01-27 16:01
Its cus they happen at any event, while it should only be on majors to feel way more prestegious, that way, i feel liek a bo5 would be played differently than what it is played today.

right
2019-01-27 16:03
-bo2 for groupstages, i dont mind draws, both teams get their map pick. -bo3 for playoff games or small tourney finals, overall the best format. -bo5 for grand finals. Wide mappool should be rewarded and it feels more prestigious to have long final. Problem is that the finals can be too long so it needs to be a highly valued tournament. bo1 shouldn't even be played competitively. bo7 shouldn't be either, players would be exhausted and crowd disinterested. I do like the idea that you cant permaban a map though. Maybe pick-ban-pick-leftower could work on bo5 ?
2019-01-27 16:09
bo3 is perfect for good teams in csgo bo5 is perfect for good teams in dota (sometimes u wish bo7 cus its so awesome) bo3 in league cus its so boring bo1 sucks in all games honestly, doesn't determine which is the better team in any way since theres so much rng

Sorry i meant to respond to an different finn
2019-01-28 18:49
it's a statistical fact that the more often you repeat an experiment, the more accurate the end result. for ex, 1 coinflip will give you a 100/0 distribution, but the more flips you make, the closer you'll get to 50/50. that's why we play 30 rounds per map, instead of just 2. so in that regard more maps is objectively better at finding the better team. now we have to factor in exhaustion. playing all 7 maps takes too long, you'd have to add long pauses in the middle of the series for all players to be in top shape - or have them all hooked on sugar and caffein the whole time :D but if both teams play no other matches that day, a bo5 is always doable and should be preferred. now we factor in scheduling for the TO. if 2 streams are used, each stream could show 2 bo5, or 1 bo5 and 2 bo3, or 3 bo3 per day. so, realistically, you could play a 16 team double elim bracket with bo5 in the winners bracket from round 2 on, the rest bo3, all in 7 days without anyone playing more and 1 bo5 or 2 bo3 per day.
2019-01-27 16:39
Meanwhile i enjoy two streams going on at all times, it does add to the expenses. Having an extra casting crew + arena must cost something and i doubt it doubles the viewer amount :/ No idea if the extra costs would be significant compared to the total cost. About the exhaust factor, full length bo5 would be super exhausting as well, it could take around 8 hours if the games go overtime and there are any technical delays or other breaks. Personally i think bo3 is the optimal set on most games, bo5 on grand finals.
2019-01-28 09:15
i never mentioned expenses, of course they would be higher, but i don't see how this adds to a debate about superior format. if money is the primary factor you of course play all bo1s, because adding extra days/talent is the most expensive aspect. i've never heard any player describe a bo5 as "super exhausting". why would 5 maps per day be "super exhausting"? it's simply not, these players have all played twice that much in a day in practice. if there's technical breaks, that means the players aren't playing, so there's no exhaustion. unless you count sitting in a chair doing nothing as 'exhausting'. and besides that, they're getting paid 1000s of dollars, it's definitely not too much to ask for ONE BO5 a day in return. (side note: there's never been a bo5 that lasted 8h, nice strawman) lastly, if it's ok to play bo5 in the finals (when the teams have already played for multiple days), then it's ok to play bo5 in ANY match (because they've played less matches then at the finals). if you say a bo5 is "super exhausting" then the finals can't be bo5 either, at least stay logically consistent.

I think there's a reason why it wasn't used anymore soo... Anyways, I think OWL format is not that bad. It's BO3 bo5, (you have to win 2 BO5 to be champions, and it's not all at once. Now imagine BO3 BO3 on CS and that the second bo3 couldn't repeat the first one. Played on different days. Sounds good to me.

ok maybe not 5. let's take 7 points. teams choose 5 maps. 1st map. team1 won. team1 +3 points. 2nd map. team2 won in overtime. team1 +1 point. team1 score: 4 points team2 +2 points. team2 score: 2points. 3rd map. team2 won. team1 score: 4points. team2 +3points. team2 score: 5points. 4rd map. team1 won. team1 score: 7points. team2 score: 5points. team1 won. 2 teams have victories. but we don't watch 5th map. BO5 is boring itself.

Bo5 is so boring to watch and the quality if cs just gets so low by the 4th and 5th map. Bo5 can literally last 8 hours, most people dont have time to eatch an 8 hour match. Bo3s on the other wont go over 4 hours.

The problem with bo5 is that assuming that if it goes all 5 maps, and each map last about an hour, it will take 5 hours to decide who's the winner of the match, and that is not including overtime. This is a problem if the match starts like around 10pm for the viewers (me because I live in Singapore, so a few hours faster than where europeans tournaments are held, and they start usually at around 5pm there), and if I have to be awake up to 2am AT LEAST just to watch who win the match, I rather sleep. This is why I like bo3 the most, it is the perfect balance between showing which team is the best in the world, and shortening the time it takes to decide the winner.
