I take it as a personal hate to it.
at least liquid got the first map pick, unlike big
makes the final worse but it's fair

i don't like it, just playing less games and having more time to study your opponents is enough advantage imo
also they have less chances to be eliminated
terrible format, u can win the entire final just by simply winning ur map picks
i think its fair, but it just makes the final suck (rootin for furia though :D )
Its stupid might as well play a BO3 but I am a fan of having double elimination playoffs
it's weird cause you'd think the advantage of going through upper bracket is enough since you don't have to play more matches or same day matches, but then you add on a 1 map advantage? It's probably just for time and maybe costs less to broadcast.
I don`t think so
but just cause you`re a burger guy i will say yes
yes, it is, because you have to have a advantage for the team that came from upper bracket
liquid would also lose with it was a normal bo5
yes, you should give and advantage to the time that never lost. good format
no first map pick would be enough
cry as much as you want, as long as there are brackets the upper one should have a clear advantage
or play knockout with no 2nd chance like majors
ofc it is you gotta have an advantage for coming from the upper bracket
actually its terrible for the final itself.
but it seems to be the only way to make it fair for getting through upper bracket.
i prefer 1 ban extra in map vetoes in first phase... but its too high iq
It's not about it being fair, but the format that makes it necessary is fucking dumb
It makes the final way less interesting.
i prefer 1 more pick, but its ok for me
its fair but i hate it, the format is dumb, and 1 more map wouldnt hurt anyone
It's fair but the format is dumb
If you use this format, then you should give an advantage to upper bracket team, but...
This format is shit and they shouldn't be using it. They should do normal playoffs
Upper bracket should get some bonus cash not a map advantage
It is the fair thing to do but certainly not so fun to watch
more cash, pick advantage and choose the side of the first map, should be the advantage, 1 map already is say who is the winner, (unlikely for G2, lol)
as a furia fan, i say it is.
today we still let liquid pick mirage before us so they could have a chance to make a good finals
but they didn't enjoy it
a map advantage is just too much (G2 situation is very rare)
of course its fair, the best team wins in a bo3, you have no excuse if you get stomped 2x like LULquid did, dont forget BIG won their match today after being 0x2, so nt
that was made to a team that lose at the start of playoffs cause got the best team as the opponent get a better positioning in championship. yes, the final game kinda sucks but u need to understand that if was made as default the other one would be already eliminated.
Furia would've smashed Lulquit even from 0-2 and 0-10 down so it doesn't matter anyway.
Should have to win 2 best of 3s against the upper bracket team
I don't like it tbh, lower bracket team had to fight more so you shouldn't discourage them
Feel like its fine in this format, but for one, the same team shouldn't get the same pick, like with the BIG match I feel like its very likely to start with a 2-0 disadvangage
Generally I feel like single eleminations playoffs are a better format, there's a reason not a single real sport plays double elim, DH just did it to get more viewtime due to many viewers during corona as there're more matches
It's shit, advantage should be 1 extra map pick or ban
it is fair
IT IS A SHITTY FORMAT, so fucking boring makes me wanna kms
I dont think its good, I hate this format, you just making lower bracket to make the upper bracket start with 1-0 and also let the first pick, they had like 2-3 days to prepare so basically they will start with 2-0 it doesnt make any sence for the team from lower bracket then, the perfect system is International sistem when lower upper bracket start from 0-0
tbh its completely fair dunno why so many retards complaining that its not, it might be more boring to watch, but its fair
It is, but as a viewer its not pleasent
The advantage should be something like map choice priority (you get to choose all the maps in order or sth idk), being up an extra map is just waaay too much
I can't stand it, I have argued against it for ever final made like this for the past year or more...
It is if G2 get it :DDDDDDDDDDDD
This format is based on flawed logic. Not having to go through the lower bracket should be incentive enough, it is a big advantage to get seeded into the final directly for several reasons, having a map advantage is as unneeded as it gets.
The only thing this does is decrease the chance of any team coming from the lower bracket to an extremely small number. This is especially bad in a tournament where some teams start the playoffs run in the lower bracket like in masters, because you basically can't win the tournament if you don't top your group. The group games are way too important here.
well they need to be rewarded somehow by not losing right? bu 1 map i think its 1 much
