Are you hyped about major?

Personally majors used to be very big highlights in my everyday-life but now they have kinda lost their shine even though there is finally good Finnish team out there. I mean werent majors much better in like 2015? I mean im still excited and gonna watch many matches each day probably but it is not as exciting as it used to be. What do you think?
2019-08-21 21:44
Vertigo is gonna be nice in major though
2019-08-21 21:44
ok please leave this game and never return
2019-08-21 21:56
he is right
2019-08-21 22:09
Why? Because I like certain map?

People have very strong opinions about this map, personally, I don't like it, but I'm trusting Valve to make the changes needed to turn this into a good map

Feel like they had more hype in the older majors as well, don't know why maybe just some nostalgia

i think its because we already know that major wont be competetive with cr4zy destroying everyone

Not really, i was more hyped in the older majors in 2014-2016.
2019-08-21 21:48
Major would regain its "hype" if they brought crowdfunding system and set only 1 major for the year

+1 1 Major per year with 5 million$ prizepool like all other esports. It should be ultimate event like WC in football.
2019-08-21 21:51
csgo would rise much more money than dota, trust me

won't work because teams are skipping tournaments all over the place majors are just meant to have a tournament regularly with aml teams
2019-08-21 21:53
What you mean by "won't work"? It will still remain a major but with bigger prize pool

"won't work because teams are skipping tournaments all over the place" that exactly why it should be once a year, and should be at the same date or month (like LoL wc) each year. So event orgs know when and when not organize a tournament and players themselves focus on the major more than previous years, more preparation + major set 6 months before or more = more practice and more practice = more good and competitive cs to watch.

Completely agree with this. There are too many top-tier CS:GO tournaments throughout the year. Of course this is great, provides entertainment for viewers and consistent income for players, but it makes the most prestigious event less significant, as the prize pool is only 4x greater than the average tournament.
2019-08-22 00:26
It's called aging :) You're interests are constantly changing and always will. I haven't been 'hyped' about a gaming tournament in probably 10 years.

Agreed. I still watch a decent amount of CS but I remember I was a fan of Dota and LoL a few years ago and now I can't even stand to watch their tournaments. At the end of the day watching other people play video games for hours at a time gets really boring real quick.
2019-08-21 21:52
Get the fuck outtta here you 50 year old news reporter
2019-08-22 21:35
I guess even though I have really enjoyed playing cs again in last 2 months

2019-08-21 22:10
I'm kind of excited but nowhere near how I should be. Liquid is just so much better than everyone else,the very top of the scene is really weak. Vitality is good but come on.. Astralis and Ence are okay but they are not in goox form,you wouldnt bet on them to take a big scalp. I only epect Na'Vi to punch above their weight since they took Liquid close 2 times.

Yeah agree on the scene being weak, but I'd rate Astralis over Vit for sure, Vitality is just ZywOo doing 80% of everything. French dreamteam would own the scene for real

2019-08-21 22:14
No more nerfs to AWP plz
2019-08-22 00:47
People like you need to forget what Astralis was and see what they are now. They have not beaten an actual good team since fucking march(bo1s dont count).Thats almost half a year... Even if Zywoo carries Vitality,the results speak for themselves,they are better than Astralis now.

The team is still the same but in worse form. I know they aren't what they were, but I have no doubts that they could win this major if they got their stuff together.
2019-08-21 22:33
They can’t cuz they suck really hard.!!! Is that hard to get!?!?!?????

Not really. Majors suck. So many bad teams takes so long. I’m more ready for Malmo and NYC
2019-08-21 22:08
Definitely they dont suck. best events hands down cuz every top team will actually attend
2019-08-21 22:11
Malmö is gonna be so fun especially since I'm watching in the arena. esl one new York is I'm not that interesting but definitely gonna watch the show match

2019-08-21 22:12
Thats cool. I still dont know why Finland wont get at least 1 tier 1 event so we could see how it is like
2019-08-21 22:15
If Arctic Invitational goes well, who knows if we'll get a tier 1 tournament soon.
2019-08-22 03:18
but its shit tournament and at least i dont bother even going there
2019-08-22 13:51
My point wasn't that Arctic would be a great tournament, it was that if the crowd is great and everything goes well on Hartwall Arena, it would probably increase the chances of Finland getting a tier 1 tournament.
2019-08-22 13:54
I haven't been hyped about the last few ones, but at least the Cloud9 vs. FaZe final was a thing in recent years. I'm pretty hyped for this one tho, don't really know why.
2019-08-21 22:10
yeah that was great. and as a finn I really enjoyed ence's run last major
2019-08-21 22:15
I'm pretty hyped Unfortunately I'm only going to watch the super important games, since I don't have tons of time to blow
2019-08-21 22:10
Well i have bone bruise in my kneecap and it dislocated for a while so i cant really do anything other than sit so all i really do this month is play cs and study
2019-08-21 22:12
yes, not about qual
2019-08-21 22:10
Vertigo Ence going to disband after No frankie or thorin Meh, a little bit because it’s a major after all

2019-08-22 00:48
I feel the same, im not that hyped about the major either, perhaps its just im lacking playtime and motivation lately, also the souvenirs are weird, it was way more hype when you got one randomly, even a worse one, than just choosing which one you'd want after you got the pass.
2019-08-22 00:53
if liquid plays like they've been so far in 2019 they will win the major imo. yes, it's liquid and a major. if they ending up becoming major champions i want to look back and say: there were some really nice and close games not like trash faceit major
