Thanks for CIS Minor to bring new talents in the scene like electronic, somedieyoung, chopper etc. And now we got n0rb3r7. It's was first minor for him and now first MAJOR. It's new experience for him, he's only 17 years old. He can do big.

still shouldn't get two spots
2019-01-27 17:26
why not? North placed 3rd in EU Minor and they lost to ViCi... Asian Minor is weak though

North lost in a BO1, every team can loose a B01, Navi loose b01 against tier 8 na teams
2019-01-27 17:29
North is inconsistent shit. they can be great one game, and next game they lose to Vici. But look who didn't make it in eu minor, Valiance, Mousesports. Both of them would easily advance in CIS minor imo. But in general, i would like to see them get rid of region minors all together and just put them in one big qualifier, but that wont happem cuz Valve wants to strenghten weaker regions like asia

nt ez + 1 "wasted CIS spot"
2019-01-27 17:28
Who should then ? Asia with VC and TYLOO ? EU with teams like ENVY (Today envy) ? Or USA with only two good teams ?
2019-01-27 17:31
Envy is american, i would like to see more EU spots
2019-01-27 17:33
Name good EU teams in your opinion who should get to the major
2019-01-27 17:34
Mousesports, Valiance
2019-01-27 17:36
Oh, ok. That's good point. Still sad about Mouse tho :<
2019-01-27 17:37
yeeees, i agree, Mouz would definitely improve the major but in the end its their own fault
2019-01-27 17:39
I think they'll make some changes in lineup in month or two

windigo would shit on winstrike in a bo3.
2019-01-27 17:37
Windigo is a tier 3 team. Why would they ?
2019-01-27 17:38

because winstrike surely isn't above t3. a W over gambot anbd bo1 wins against envy and vici don't make you t2 all of a sudden.
2019-01-27 17:39
They was at major (Got kicked on last. And wasn't with this lineup but...)

as u said, not the same lineup. noone knows what they're real worth is in a bo3. however windigo is quite established in the low tier eu scene, upsetting goodish teams on LAN and so on.
2019-01-27 17:41
Ok, maybe so... But can't valve just change major system for +slot for teams from EU Quals ? I mean removing one slot from region is kinda sucks

Well since now all the minors are played at katowice/ the pplace of the major itself, why not merge all teams in one big qualifier. We would have the minor play on 2 weeks just like we have now, but one team from each region in each group.
2019-01-27 17:46
Thats good idea imo

Some that didn't make it (in no order): windigo, valiance, heroic (also just added blamef), mousesports, optic. They would make it or have good chance in other regions imo. The fact that some teams like heroic couldn't even reach EU Minor is insane.

just stating facts
2019-01-27 17:35
you are stating your opinion, which is fine, but facts are numbers. head- to-heads, etc.

Thats BO1 wtf ?
2019-01-27 17:46
did you look at the head-to-head? Vitality is leading 8-2 and ENCE is leading 2-1. You just digged up two outliers, but the overall head-to-heads neglect your argument Also, Winstrike didn't even play against North today, they just won two Bo1's against weak teams

i used the 2 latest ones but ok
2019-01-27 17:49
but that doesn't change the head-to heads leaning towards the european teams

ok listen, what i'm trying to say is that they do deserve 2 spots and also if north and mouz would outperform teams like col, vega and tyloo then the minors would look more equal
2019-01-27 17:52
Okay, i must admit that i enjoy seeing different cultures clashing each others in the major. The CIS teams are very aggressive, which is fun to watch. I guess, Mouz in the minor is an outlier, and overall it's nice to have different regions in the major. So yeaah, i kinda changed my mind, having two spots for each region is fine to me :)

Look at the ENCE vs AVANGAR scorelines. 1-2 with 2 map lost 15-19 and 14-16 and a month(?) before they beat AVANGAR far easier hltv.org/matches/2323462/avangar-vs-ence.. Vitality also had bo1 win vs Spirit before. Also #53 And more importantly both of these teams had better results (ENCE > Avangar, Vitality > Spirit) which is reflected in their rankings not just h2h.
2019-01-27 17:51
I mean Avangar is surely>north and winstrike can beat ENCE I think
2019-01-27 17:35
I don't think that winstrike would be able to beat ENCE, but yeah, North is shit, usually mouz or Valiance should be in their place

AVANGAR and North would be 50/50 or 55/45 for North.

2019-01-27 17:38
Yeah, IEM will be super cool, just look, Brollan 16 years old, sergej too, n0rb3r7 17, Zywoo 18 and few more. This must be one of the, if not the best major.
2019-01-27 17:35
agree, it's breakout moment for young players.
2019-01-27 17:40
he's really fucking good. -edward + n0rb3r7
