If they didn't want to play 6 maps they should have won against EG

nah tbh the system itself is retarded you want the final to be interesting and not make one participant tired before it begins but tbh fnatic is still a different team tho thye have to fix their ct side
2019-10-27 21:02
The format is great, only flaw was that Fnatic played both finals in the same day

Well and if EG would lose we would say fnatic won because they played a BO3 before so they were already in shape xd

This is what I used to think back when teams were playing 2 bo3s in 1 day in major playoffs. Now I realize that teams bootcamp for 10+ hours weeks before tournaments and are able to maintain their high level throughout the day. The 6 hours in events is nothing for pros and they can handle it. In fact, when players have exceptionally good tournaments they generally say they've played more than normally before and even during the tournament. The reason I once thought players get tired playing 2 bo3s in 1 day is because I get tired playing 6 comps a day. But they are pros, and the more they play the better they are. They are used to playing CS waaay too much, so playing 2 bo3s in 1 day is nothing for them.

fnatic is in final only thanks to lower bracket. its perfectly fine that eg has an "advantage" here. it was always like that even in 1.6 as far as i remember

well... if standard bracket was used they wouldn't have to meet eg untill the final since they were in the same bracket
2019-10-27 19:00
oh well this tournament had pretty weird system but point still stand. fnatic came from lower bracket so they have to play 2 "finals" in a row

they have but the thing is that in other formats grand finals arein one day and semis are in other day... and this tournament kind of had.. semi final #1 at day 1 and semi final #2 and grand final at day 2... hard to explain especially with a format like that..
2019-10-27 19:28
they still had to play only 2 bo3 today so its not that big deal. another thing is that noone would pay arena, analysts and casters another day just bcs of 1 bo3 and it would also be waste of spectators time(i mean visitors in arena). there could be some break(like 1 hour) so fnatic can rest atleast a bit but other than that its imo just fine

there were no spectators... they didn't have to pay the arena, what they had to do was just change the time... fnatic vs furia 9am, fnatic vs eg 3pm(for example, whichever way you put it they set it "instantly" after fnatic vs furia match+ they played 3 maps with ot included...= even more exhausting only 2 bo3... fyi, lan tournaments are way more exhausting than the random pug matches

They should just keep single elimination in playoffs.
2019-10-27 19:47
"whichever way you put it they set it "instantly" after fnatic vs furia match+ they played 3 maps with ot included...= even more exhausting only 2 bo3... fyi, lan tournaments are way more exhausting than the random pug matches" i said myself that there could be longer break. i would be completely fine with that and i understand that its more exhausting but its still only 2 bo3s. i remember much longer maratons back in the days(1.6) or semifinals+bo5 final right after. im still fine with that advantage for eg since they came for upper bracket. they deserve some kind of advantage and its much better than givinig 1:0 lead like some tournaments did in the past. keep in mind that fnatic would be already eliminated in all other formats that were played this year(or even last year as far as i remember).

i see, but that's fair since if wasn't for the lower bracket Fnatic would already be eliminated, some events even give 1 map advantage for the team at the upperbracket.
2019-10-27 19:02
What the hell are you talking about?? it's Bo3.. D2 -> Mirage -> Inferno. "Veto advantage for Evil Geniuses due to winning the upper bracket" that's their only advantage

How? They wouldve only just met EG in a bo3 final and had a day break to prepare unlike the 10mins granted. Before you say "THEY SHOULDVE WON FIRST BO3!!!". That day preparation for the last game would be massive for fnatic as since their inception 43 days ago theyve not had a single period of time to prepare and pracc. Even now they go home and play ECS

fnatic even gets the opportunity to be required to win these "4maps to win the grand final" thanks to the great double elim format.

? Single elimination isnt a good format wtf? Imagine playing a full bo3 and then instantly having to play the final.They couldve made an hour break for fnatic but they didnt. EG had an advantage in veto so dont say anything about lower bracket

I agree that its a bit unfair for fnatic to play 2 bo3 in 1 day
2019-10-27 19:48
in DOTA International team from lower bracket has to play bo3 and bo5 in a row, stop crying, 2 bo3s in a row isnt even much at all, pros pracc way more than that every day

2 bo3 isnt that much - no lmao Pros pracc that every day - theres a massive difference between pracc and playing in terms if stamina

That's what u get when you're in the loser bracket, don't think it was a disadvantage, you saw how warmed up the came in to d2, EG is just superior.
2019-10-27 19:58
it has been so kind that starladder dont require fnatic win two continuous bo3 against EG in the grand final.

fnatic almost lost to furia, that acording to you is a tier 2 team. They deserved the lost, EG is the better team.

i was rooting for FNC but this complaining is beyond retarded EG deserved every advantage for winning against them yesterday

Nothing to do with the system. EG are just a much better team than fnatic atm

All in all, this format really wants to rekt whoever goes in the lower bracket. They just want the team that can always win to win the title, not some team struggled before, made all the way to final and steal everything.
