True csgo is not like dota or LoL. Playing csgo for 5maps is just pure torture pro players.
viewers want it tbh. And its good since its final, you should be able to win 3 maps and have a great fight to win a tournament.
Not a problem when that bo5 is the only match both teams are playing that day, really
I like it. Also, it fills the day better since there is only 1 game + showmatch instead of 2bo3 games.
Hobbit recently said he doesn't like it either
best of 5 is the best choice....now you know for sure that the other team wasnt lucky
I want it, really tests your whole map pool
i want bo7 miss mouz vs hr grandfinal
I want it
At least it makes Grand Final feel special, also tests players' mentality and map pool
i want it,i also want bo7
I love it. It really proves who the better team is in the final, it's not a race it's a marathon and you have to stay collected and in form throughout. Also very entertaining to watch a map 5 or a close series in general.
Nobody forces you to watch all maps, just skip first map if you don't enjoy bo5.
The more maps you win the more you're proving that you earn the trophy. It's just the final and it's more entertainment
Doesn't matter when its gonna be 3-0 Gambit
Not sure why there is so many best of 5. They should have like 3 a year. Maybe Kato and Cologne, blast global final and then like maybe the major but maybe not the major.
depends on the format of the tournament really.
as said before if there is only one bo5 on the final day it can be interesting. too bad the maps are too boring to watch so then it makes a bo5 completely useless.
I dont get the fact that major finals are not bo5? Why are they supposed to be the biggest tournaments and only bo3. BRING BO5 TO MAJORS. Others can be BO3.....
Depends on who has the composure to close it out... last year navi threw away 2 2-0 leads lol, if it wasn't a bo5 you'd have thought navi were the best team but it's all about who can survive and play for extended periods of time without feeling the fatigue. I enjoy bo5's, i don't watch all 5 maps- maybe map 1 then i tune in for map 4 to see the result and if it ends up 2-2 I'll watch map 5
yes but game take only 3maps so its almost bo3
Literally every pro hates it, idk why it is still a thing
I like bo5 in theory, but in reality it takes just too long with tech and tac pauses and breaks between halfs and maps etc. Lot of ppl here say they only watch map or two but I cant do that because I can miss lot of interesting stuff like insane clutches, new strats or some kind of nonsense like winning a round with usps only or T/CT forget plant/defuse etc. and things like that is what makes matches and finals special. It's boring to watch only first map and crucial rounds from decider and almost no one have time to watch one CS game whole day.
Bo3 are fine and finals should be with that format.
I'm gonna watch 1st map and then go to sleep
As a viewer? I'd surely want that, as a pro player? idk...I can surely understand that they wouldn't want it.
I like it.
As for pros they probably would have liked to play 1 map each month and get 40k for it.
BO5’s are great imo so much content 😎👍
BO1 grand final, veto done by blind folded picking out of hat
What bothers me is the major final being a BO3. A BO5 proves without a doubt who is the better team. It's probably the most fair final format you can have
I like Bo5 finals more than Bo3.
I think we should have LB and UB and then have a bracket reset so 2 Bo3s
bo5 should only be for the best events of the year
majors should be bo5 final, but a random dreamhack event? bo3 is enough.
As you can see, viewers actually want it but I dont think that players want it because it takes too long. Luckily, we dont see it that often.
Organisers would not hold BO5s for no reason. The underlying reason is likely that viewers do in fact want it, indicated by statistics which indicate better performance of BO5 than BO3 final in say, for instance, total individual viewers. You have to remember how what viewers want is determined, and that they are driven by profit.
It may also give it a greater sense of grandeur and have the final stick out more. Perhaps that would be better to advertise to sponsors because it may legitimise the event. Here I have no idea.
You have to also consider the perspective that regardless of what certain players have said, the organiser may believe that it is a healthy way to run the "sport". It give the final more weight and may allow the player to really prove themselves in a far harder challenge. Most sport is oftentimes not very enjoyable to do, yet players till go on ahed because they want to be the best, and overcome the greatest challenges, such as an epic final where they have to outlast their opponents.
Makes no sense to take your opinion and then say no one wants it xd cuz some other pro players said the same thing. There may be plenty of reasons not to do it but don't present things as one sided just because you don't like them, its fucking annoying, hence the wall of text.
The best of the best series in csgo history were BO5s
agreed. players can’t be at their best by the end of 5 maps. not naturally anyway. bo3 is the best showing of a teams skill. and also most people aren’t watching 5 maps being played, it’s a rotation of viewers map to map. some watch all 5 sure but that’s rare, most streams are 200k between english/bz for big matches, that’s a small portion of the community.
Bo5 good, only weak plastic csgo fans disagree
bo5 should only be for biug events + major
Betting sites like it. More manehhh
