Oh okay, now it makes more sense. I thought you were legit saying that being able to attend majors was useless unless he could win the whole major.
I get your point now, I do. But I still think it's a fairly big deal.
Majors are the biggest tournaments, probably the by far coolest LAN experience, most prestige, most prizepool etc. I would think that this is a pretty big deal for tier1/tier2 teams. I would certainly take this into consideration before I invited someone to a tier1/tier2 team. They would have to get a sub player (like xSeven for ence) for majors, who they don't prac with as much and they would simply have to be a worse team when playing majors.
I was honestly surprised when I saw ence pick him up though
, because ence were major finalists, who at some point was a top tier team. For them to just basically (ik they can still qualify, but they are way worse with a substitute player) give up majors, was very surprising to me. Don't think this is the case with most other teams, I think ENCE is unique since they were willing to do this.
Overall, I think a player not being able to attend majors is a very big hindrance for him getting picked up by good teams (as I said, I think ENCE picking up Jamppi is unique and I don't think many other teams would be willing to sacrifice majors for that).
