That's the point. It encourages teams to perform better to get easier matchups later on duh?
If you're baiting, 7/8 i fell for it but if not, It gives an advantage to the better teams rather than having upset teams play each other and top teams play each other. Let's say in the next stage, NaVi, MIBR, coL, and g2 are all 2-2. Without seeding there's a chance coL & g2 play each other and in turn get a legends spot even tho NaVi & MIBR would squash either team. Git gud and seeding will favor you
your suggestion is more hard for low-ranked teams, they'll have to win every game so they can win the championship which is dumb
Why? As you can see from THE qual this is the best working format?
This is the best format possible. No fluke teams, just teams that deserve the spot.
Earlier people were crying about the lottery style draw for matchups and wanted seeding after the rollercoaster in London, now they get seeding and they cry about there beeing seeding. Seems legit.
If any team wanna play on major they must wanna win. If they wanna win they need to know how to play vs top teams. If they can't beat them they just don't deserve for major lol
This format is basically in every sport that includes playoffs, icehockey,basketball etc etc... better team plays in regular season easier opponent's team gets in playoffs
This is just what the format is supposed to do. Have the best teams survive the longest in this format because they are the best, and if a team wanna prove otherwise, they have the chance to to it.
That is the point of the major. To find the best teams. Therefor the assumed better teams need to face the assumed worse teams as that will ensure the worse teams won't make it further. If they make it further then they of course deserve to be there but if they don't then the presumable best teams make it through making the format successful.
This format prevents a team like winstrike making it through by winning against teams like maybe Vici, Furia and Tyloo and ensures that teams like fnatic will have the ability to make it through without facing teams like NRG, Ence and Vitality. Fnatic managed to exit early anyways though which means that they firmly dont deserve to be there
Astralis - AVANGAR
Liquid - Vitality
MiBR - Complexity
Na'Vi - Ence
Faze - G2
NRG - HellRaisers
NiP - Renegades
C9 - BIG
They are partially using Buchholz for this too, the problem is that winning against a high tier team doesn't seem to change the ranking of the higher or lower tier team and they keep getting matchups from the initial seeding. The points "progression" isn't change fast enough to make a difference for the matchups.
I think the only change that would be interesting to see would be a lower bracket system
Bucholz at FACEIT major somehow managed to even worse than random draws.
I like the IEM system
So...you say that a lower team should be able to qualify only because it's lower ranked? Are you fucking kidding me? Of course low ranked teams are supposed to beat high ranked teams if they won't to move forward the tournament. That's how life works.
I don't know if you are following football, but imagine UCL with 4 group of teams all like PSG, Juve, Barca...and the other 4 groups with Porto, Schalke etc. And then the finale would be 1 team for the "godlike" groups and one from the other 4 groups. Would that be entertaining to watch?
because simply if lower teams get to the major = no entertainment
best format ever, you are stupid
Don´t understand why a lower ranked team should have an easier way to the top then a higher ranked team? The new system is great and will probably make a sick final with a lot of viewers cuz of two (hopefully) high ranked teams meet.
Teams that are higher ranked have played their way there for a long time. It's not like a lower ranked team have been on top for a long period of time, if so they would not be considered underdogs, right?
But if the lower teams actually are better, then they will win their matches and go trough to play off. Simple as that.
You have to consider the major as a big economy as well, the biggest fan base lies in the biggest teams (higher seeded teams). So if you still want csgo to grow the fans have to put in money in the big teams. If the big teams don't succeed as expected fans will be disapointed and not invest as much money. And the orgs are the ones paying for the big names such as coldzera, s1mple, f0rest, Niko etc...
We are talking about the Major, which should always be the biggest CS tournament of the year. It's like World Cup on football, The International on Dota 2 etc. There should be THE best of the best playing against each other. If you aren't good enough, you simply dont belong there. This system works (Maybe seeding should be a bit different, but more BO3:s, the better tbf).
I don't care who is in the finals, there can be Astralis Vs ViCI, thats okay, I will still watch it. In my opinion it would be dumb to NOT watch the biggest match of the tournament of the year, based on what overall ranking one of the two finalists or both are. That tells you that you aren't really a enthuastic CSGO viewer. Sure, most likely we would have much more close and epic games if you have the two BEST in terms of ranking and overall performance (for example NIPvsFNATIC finals a long time ago etc, Virtus Pro vs SK Gaming, NIP vs VeryGames etc.) but the fact that an underdog team can climb up their way to the major final, it is something you have to give BIG (no pun intended) respect. They have fought the biggest and baddest, the best teams, to achieve something great = they have earned their place in the top. BO1:s are too much fluke, and there is so many variables which can taken into account, that may affect the end result of the game. BO3 is the most fair solution, since BOTH teams have a map of their own pick to choose, and the last map pick is based on the bans of the teams, so you have to use your wits for good vetoing. This is the first notable thing you see when you compare best teams to Tier 2 teams; the vetoing process of the two. And before anyone says, no BO1 doesn't justify consistency, BO3. If you can keep up/dominate in a BO3, you are consistently doing something. If you win one BO1 now and then, it doesn't tell you anything about the true skill level you have.
All in all, it ain't any easier to better teams when competing, they are fighting at their own level at their counterparts. Just like in World Cup, why worse teams should be "allowed to get an easier route to the final?" They dont, and neither do the better ones. Group stage is a mix of best and not so good teams, but when it comes to the playoffs, there are the best of the tournament, they deserve the place with their work they've done, and they will face their rivals.
If an underdog (like complexity for example) gets to the final of the major, it is super awesome and no-one should take that away from them, since other teams have had EXACT same chances, but just didn't excel at that.
I don't get your point tbh.
If they are lower teams and want to proove that they are good they need to play against t1 teams and have "hard" matchups.
Why let a chance to a bad team to go threw Legends because they beat other lower teams, they will just get destroyed in playoffs and that's all.
And also why forcing "big" teams to destroyed each other during the Legends stage and not in playoff? Will just make the playoff boring af
who says ez for upper team,??
this format is good, until you don't have proper knowledge about it
Welcome to the concept of cheating.
I disagree. This system is quite fair imo. you have plenty opportunities to prove yourself as a team. its a major and no charity. the good thing is it's about performance and not the brand f.e. fnatic. you get beaten, you are done. simple as that. meanwhile bo3 decided about being the better team to advance and compete with the teams in the legends stage. solid system imo. everyone had their shot!
Can someone pls make this thread for me because i have not been active enough? :)
Subject: Headset issue Hyperx Cloud Alpha
So when i bought this headset about a year ago i had this same problem what im having now but that time i somehow solved it but cant remember how
I hear this weird static noise all the time and i can hear my own voice trough headphones when i speak but others cant hear me on ts/mumble.
I've already tried plugging the wires both back and front panel, doesnt work.
I tried to install audiodrivers but windows says that i already have the newest ones.
I've been trying everything on recording device settings but nothing seems to help...
It is just a number. The teams will have to play and win every time. In games like WoW you have itemlevel which affects gameplay but not in CS:GO. You lose you go home. You win you go to the next stage. It is the same for every single team in every single game.
1st and 2nd in previous major vs 3-0 Teams
3rd-4th in previous major vs 3-1 Teams
5th-8th in previous major vs 3-2 Teams
but if this happeens mmany lower rank teams will be in the playoffs and thier be boring 1 sided maps there
Nope, that's the thing why major lacked "professionality" for me.
For example, imagine fifa world cup without seeding, it would be a mess.(like faceit major with their "seeding", when nip or mouz played only top8 teams and both failed to qualify and fnatic with a very good draws and bad lineup at the time didn't go through + mouz lost their major spot)
And if you don't get this, you probably have no idea how it should work.
This is by far a major with the best system.
BUCHHOLZ IS RETARDED MEN
Even though Vici, Winstrike and Tyloo should've probably made it through...next time :)))
It’s a fucking MAJOR man. May the BEST team win. Not some shit team who only had to beat other shit teams.
