Make safe picks they said..

imgur.com/a/tDn3uLQ Yeah just take the 5 safe picks they said, take fnatic they said. Now that I have 2 right picks (Never imagined that it would be the 3-0 and 0-3 pick, lol) I should get at least 3 more unless we get a lot of upsets.

unlucky. I guessed that ViCi could get at least 1 win but they sure surprised me

I thought Fnatic would surprise I guess they still did

Never pick the obvious
2019-02-14 17:38
why not? It's the statistically best decision to do

I thought that ViCi is like a Chinese Navi with 2 players that can carry them atleast one game
2019-02-14 17:41
Not when your 3-0 and your 0-3 play in the first round one match shouldnt screw you out of 2 points
2019-02-14 17:41
That's a fair point.But I think the guy meant to not pick the favorites for 3-0 and 0-3 and that sounds just dumb to me.
2019-02-14 17:43
In theory you shouldnt pick say ence/nrg to go 3-0 since they are such safe picks to go through so you are risking ez points by taking a risk to get a perfect Vici is a perfectly understandable choice for 0-3 but i really thought grayhound was the obvious pick myself
2019-02-14 17:50
Wait so I don't get any point if my 3-0 team doesn't go 3-0 but progresses on through the stage? That's dumb in a system with Bo1's

It really isn’t that statistically different. You either lose right away or take a bunch of different 50/50’s. I went for the risky pick because I was really sure that Fnatic would beat ViCi.
2019-02-14 18:13
It is not worth it 2 matches to lose 2 points > 1 match to lose 2 points

You have more chances to lose though if you pick seperately. 6 matches vs 5 matches.

Never been in majors
2019-02-14 17:45
Do you know how statistics and odds work? It is very unlikely to choose right, when chosing Two out of 16 teams, but you increase your chances by picking the most likely team. This still gives you just a 10-15% chance to having picked right. But it definitely is better than just picking any random team with a lesser chance to do so

if you pick an obvious team for 3-0, it can get for example 3-1 and you won't get the points but, if you pick it for the remaining 7 teams, then you'll have a point either way, as long as they go through pick 'worse' teams for 3-0, i've picked rene and i have a point (+a point from grayhound)
2019-02-14 17:54
I didn't know that you don't get a point for your 3-0 team progressing 3-X. That's so dumb lol

Japan hirohito 
it's not. it's clearly said that you're picking 3-0 team. not 3-1, not 3-2, 3-0.
2019-02-14 17:57
Yeah, but in a system containing of at least two Bo1's, it is stupid to not give points for a favorite losing one upset match. It should be so you get points for the 8 teams advancing, and additional points if you guess the 3-0 team right. Makes way more sense imo. That way you get punished for knowledge about the scene if you pick the favorite.

that's why you pick obvious teams for the remaining 7. there isn't any advantage with picking a team that'll pass to the next stage as the remaining 7 than to pick it as the 3-0
2019-02-14 18:03
yeah, i get your logic. I just think the point distribution system is flawed

What if I got a correct pick (Renegades on 3-0), and the second team that advances with that score is NRG, which I've picked to advance, but not in a 3-0 fashion. Do I get a point from that?

if you've picked 3-0 renegades remaining 7 - nrg and nrg passes with 3-0, you'll get a point for each in 3-0, you get a point for a team that passes with 3-0 in remaining 7, you get a point for a team that passes with any score

Alright, thanks bro
2019-02-14 18:05
You don't get an extra point if the team you picked second(the first team of the remaing seven) progresses 3-0

Technically, they do advance anyway, so I should get a point from that. Nothing extra, just a point from putting them on a 7 teams advancing list.

2019-02-14 17:53
I got right grayhound and stand a chance for tyloo 3-0, which I thought could happen, but NiP and fnatic are the ones that rn seem bad in my pickem, the rest are with more wins than losts.

thank mister grayhound for 0-3 thank mr renegades for good recent performances
2019-02-14 17:40
Dude, nice pickem! I got fnatic 3-0 and Grayhound 0 -3, the other ones are the same, (renegades isntead of fnatic compared to yours) I hope NRG win against Tyloo so i got one more right :)

Yeah, I also hoped renegades would win over ENCE, because i feel ence has a bigger chance of beating the other remaning teams than renegades, feel it would be easier for renegades to end up 2-3 than ence
2019-02-14 17:57
Absolut logical, but for me i still hope NRG just win against Tyloo ;P I was shocked NiP just fucked up against Winstrike... But they played so well! Deserved.

Nice one. I hope NRG win today, than we just need 2 more ( maybe Ence and Avangar tomorrow)
2019-02-14 17:44
Going to have 3 points to end today hope it is nrg though for best case scenario
2019-02-14 17:42
It Is all about the match ups and Renegades got the best match ups they could hope for with their ranking. Wp and onto 0-3 next round :)
2019-02-14 17:45
Fnatic has the best matchups but ....
2019-02-14 18:02
What I meant was they stayed away from unpredictable teams like Furia and ViCi and such. They got teams they knew and know how they play and what not. And then they outplayed them. I would not want to be the #1 seed to face a China team that is unpredictable and has maybe 2-3 demos to watch of their matches and who knows what they have been preparing

Pick em in the group stage is literally 100% luck. It's so fking random and unpredictable. Making the ''logical'' picks never seems to work out.
