Why isn't major final bo5?
 | 
Namibia nawledge 
Like all the other big events are bo5, so why isn't the major final bo5? I feel like this is gonna be a clean sweep for astralis 2-0, like 16-10 and 16-8 or something. BO5 makes everything much more exciting, fuck bo3's.

+1, if the major final wouldn't be bo5, why do we even have bo5?

No idea, not fun to watch a team win easily over the other team in a fkn final. Not saying that avangar doesn't stand a chance, but I have a gut feeling that ast will win hard.

it's not just that, if any final is played between astralis and liquid or any closer teams, i wanna see bo5 cause it simply convince me more who is better team. played 5 map, won 3 of them against its opponent; that sounds like a fucking champ. 2-0 or 2-1 are not sound like fucking champ. in dota 2 we had fucking bo7 back in the days which was fucking best.

I've only seen one bo7 in a csgo tournament, and I definitely agree with you that 2-0/2-1 does not sound like they're champions. Makes me sick to my stomach that other tournaments have bo5 but not the biggest tournament of the year

It's because casual audience, they don't won't to watch 3+ hours
2019-09-08 10:13
Well I kinda agree, this major has been a big failure anyway so why even bother, interesting major with new meta's and stuff is cool enough for me. Everyone played so well, nice to see an unexpected team in the finals against who are considered the best in the world.

depends if the game is close, remember the faze final vs C9? That's the kinda major final I want
2019-09-08 07:57
It should be better formatted, I agree I want them to be better

after that they've just been trash, sad but it will happen to other teams eventually
2019-09-08 08:11
Agree with u , All Esl pro league and big tournament have a bo5 in the final so i think the major should be bo5 as well , and maybe more prices than 1million dollars

indeed
2019-09-08 12:03
I think its cause quarters. Semi and finals right after each other and they dont want too many maps to be a factor that can change the winner outcome (not saying it will) but my look at it, even tho I also rather want a long bo5

No, it is a problem of the organizer. The tickets are a huge deal for the organizer (35€ for Sunday with 15.000 seats) and nobody would go there if the event would end after 2am.

You do realize a Bo5 completely increases the chance for top tier teams that have more extensive map pools? Astralis is more likely to lose a Bo3 over a Bo5. In this current major you'll get 1 more map where Astralis destroys Avangar.

Good luck. There hasn't been as completely solid final since 2015. Since then it's been uneventful 2-0s and a few 3rd maps that actually end up great (C9 vs. FaZe for example).
2019-09-08 08:32
Vp vs astralis??????
2019-09-08 12:03
+1 vp vs astralis is the greatest final I've ever seen
2019-09-08 12:16
Bo5 plan without overtime is 7.5 hours.... Just be happy this will take maximum 4.5 hours unless multiple overtimes
2019-09-08 08:18

max 4.5 hours? it will be max 3h lol
2019-09-08 08:19
So they should plan for fast matches? Ofc it won't last 4.5hours but a bo3 can last 4.5 hours without overtime

every game can last up to 90 min if everything takes the longest time possible, 30 rounds with last second plants, 30 rounds with the bomb exploding/ct defusing at the last second, all timeouts called etc etc, technically it can go on forever with overtimes. p.s. neither of those will ever happen, final is going to be at most 2:30h, probably less than 2h with astralis 2-0'ing avangar

That's what I'm talking about, it's not funny to watch a major final for 2 hours.... but other tournaments with 200k prize pool have bo5 finals lol

Bo5 without overtime and 30 round with 3 minutes duration (last second bomb plant and last second) defuse would take 7.5 hours. make some sense

too long bo3 is ideal don't cry

why would you enjoy a bo3 for a major final? when oakland, new york etc have bo5 final?
2019-09-08 12:01
i don't want to watch bo5 too boring and too long for me u can keep crying but it will be bo3 for long time

Not crying, I just think it's bs that other tournaments have bo5 final but not a fkn major. lemme sit there with popcorn for 2 hours and fall asleep
2019-09-08 12:04
most of viewers (not masochists) are annoyed of watching bo5 like me that's why final is bo3

boston was good, krakow was meh, atlanta had a good major final. but avangar will be irrelevant after this tournament. enjoy your 2 hours entertainment lol
2019-09-08 12:13
no they will be relevant if they are invited to tier1 events but last two months they just had to go through online quals and they couldn't get an opportunity
2019-09-08 12:15
From what I've heard it's because of time constraints and players' opinions... Consensus is that most players hate BO5 because it's a marathon of CS but I love them personally.
2019-09-08 08:40

 | 
Namibia nawledge 
I love bo5's too, mostly because I like to watch CS for hours, not a clean sweep (i think ast will crush avangar) I really hope it goes to the 3rd map tho, idc who wins
2019-09-08 12:00
It would test the players' endurance, would be actually interesting to see

I just think it's bs that tournaments with 200k prize pool have bo5 final but not a 1million dollar major. navi vs ast london major= sucked ass. kato final ence vs ast= sucked. krakow was meh.

BO5 format is too long. I dont know about you guys, but for me, as much as I love CS I have a life outside of the game and other things to do and enjoy. And I am sure the same happens with most of the viewers. I am never able to watch a BO5 from start to finish unless it`s a quick 3-0 or 3-1 sweep... a close 3-2 game can be 7-8 hour long (it has happened in the past such as with VP vs SK @ Epicenter 2017). Way too much time...
