Why do we have this conversation before every major? It's really not that hard to understand. Valve wants the scene to grow, and it can't if they aren't given a chance. A major is also the celebration of the game, like the fifa world cup, which also has slots for the whole world, despite eu and sa being a lot better. Thirdly, it's not like those teams are garbage. Just think about gambit, Vega, vici, rng
It's dumb, but it's supposed to be international.
thats kinda why the minor play in exists, though i think it should be 2 teams from each minor fighting for 2 slots.
Each region should have slots for major based on the amount of players of that region. Steam probably have these stats.
EU minor will be lit though :D
slots for major are for max viewership not to have the absolute best teams duke it out on LAN
CIS region comes under Europe if you see live matches navi playing
The stats will show as navi a Europe team
The fact is, the CIS minor could be combined with the asian one to compete for 2 - 3 slots. Kind of an out of sight, out of mind kind of solution. Just give the leftover slot to the EU minor.
who cares these europe teams are playing the minor for a reason and the CiS teams have upset many times in the recent major. and with both asia and oceanic teams starting to look better the asia minor is fine.
Tbh, EU should have 3 slots, NA 2, asia/cis 1, africa 1. We dont even know if there anything good there in terms of cs, the only team that attend major from africa was bravado and they did quite well back then.
in my opinion, Valve should implement a system like Champions League, where better regions (based on previous Majors' performance) get more slots at the Major
+1 it's insane how easy NA minor is compared to EU minor.
If cis minor had 1 slot then NA minor should have 1 slot too.
Just give EU more slots and forget this shit scenes until they are ready to compete
Valve can't be biased and racist like you
How about you stfu
Making this thread for idk how many times
New market, more money, new Asian market - much more money.
CIS should have 3 slots and NA should have 1 slot.
Agreed, but having the play-in somewhat fixes things as it gives 2 more spots at the major.
I have an idea , 32 teams major , increase it by 8 teams
Expected once again someone crying about major slots.
+1 5 EU
Valve should make NA quals with 2 spots on Americas minor and give other 6 spots to SA
The system is set up so that the minor slots are fairly allocated, as the top eu/na teams fill the legends spots, and also have chances to come through in the 3rd place slots. But last major vici and winstrike took the 3rd place, so what does that tell you about region balance?
it's only main qualifier, keep kalm
