Exactly, fuck og for ignoring the chat and playing out the round, literally so desperate for a win they have to 5v4, any other team would have stopped the round and ran back to spawn, not og tho, they needed to see all the weapons and positions from g2 first
Yeah some crying in the community.
That's a pathetic behavior
i dont see how this is such a big issue, they restarted, regardless of the round being played out (which doesnt usually happen), and og won the force after the restart regardless so idk the complaints seem pointless
The Blast rulebook states the following under "10.5. Technical pause" and under "10.5.1. In the case of an online match":
10.5.1.5. Players must continue to play any ongoing round until the pause has come into an effect to allow tournament officials to make a decision according to the rulebook.
But they still pushed B? Killed two people on banana and had free site, that would still be 4v3 with B site taken? You think G2 could retake this 3v4 with small utility? On B? They would save 100%
BLAST's fault for the time it took but OG fans being butthurt over "lost momentum" are just being stupid. It was pretty much tied at half-time and OG still won like 3 rounds afterwards anyway. G2's CT-side is way stronger than their T-side.
Imagine losing a game after winning a free round because you have no honour 🤡🤡🤡
only hltv virgins crying
It's not necessarily wrong for OG to play the round out; ultimately the admins have to make the call.
The way I see it, it was OG's fault for losing their momentum. Damage was not dealt and OG didn't want to restart.
The only thing Blast is to blame for is letting the issue take 50 minutes to resolve. I get it, they allowed it to be discussed amongst the two teams because it's usually healthier to let them do and agree upon it if rules are clear, and both teams get the feeling that it was their decision and that nobody got screwed. Being that said, if Blast realizes that the discussion has reached an impasse after 5-10 minutes they should've ruled out what they eventually ruled out and move on. It simply cannot take 50 minutes.
