Feel sad for Big and NRG but they really sucked big time. Had good chance to go for kill but they messed it up big time esp Complexity match.
Rest all teams still have chance to progress and challenge Astralis
I wish they'd impliment something new in the minors now, that'd be a dream come true.
disregarding nostalgia, I think this has been the best major to date. Now my heart will say other majors were better but this format has made some great matches and almost every Bo3 has been very fun to watch. If the playoffs are just as awesome as the group stage I think this will be the best major ever.
No fluke BO1 win takes team ahead for automatic selection.
This is the best part.
Imagine Tyloo winning BO1 by fluke against NIP and going ahead.
Vici gaming had good game against off colour Fnatic in qualification round. But new format at least ensured that fluke wins reiman fluke.
really, really good. at this stage in the major, we have 5 teams that 100% deserve to be in the playoffs. no fluke wins, those all happened in bo1s. we get to see the true colors of the top teams and the potential of the underdogs.
