I do not like the fact but it is what it is, ESL doesn't have much time so they needed to make some cuts
i actually like to watch bo1 more intense (for me) but i dont get that its for RMR and for the most important RMR
do I like the fact that group eliminations will be played in BO1? Not At All
it will be a clownfiesta!
gives Endpoint a higher chance so yes
imho they should do a bo7 round robin as that would bring us the most entertainment
is every region playing on new patch?
and since eu is lan will it be in Germany or somewhere else?
I do not like the fact that group eliminations will be played in BO1!
It’s gonna be really entertaining and also scary so in a Way yes
I think Bo3 is better, but Bo1 is necessary so as to play all the matches within a reasonable amount of time
No. Having BO1s at this level of competition is unacceptable.
It's too scary, don't like it much this close to the major
But hey, at least every single round counts and we have time to see more matches
I don't mind it, two play-ins this year had one bo1 round and it went without any upsets. Maybe I will change my opinion after this rmr, but tbh I think it'll be ok, as many flukes as always. Plus, thanks to valve TOs don't have a lot of time, like I'm sure IEM Fall originally was not gonna be a big tournament with 24 teams and there is Blast Showdown right after it
I don't understand one thing
Why EU for is Lan but CIS is online
Way more exciting for the viewers, could hurt some good teams though
Yes and I wish every tournament out there was like this
BO1's are big flukes and only favor the weakest teams...BO1's don't even make sense and should be abolished...if we consider pistol rounds + luck and maybe any possible mistake from a team then you don't have much time to react and could easily lose the map and automaticly the match...in BO3's you can bounce back and turn the game in your favor...that's the beauty of this game.
( funny example )
BO3's = Complete football match ( 1.5 hours )
BO1's = Start the match and whoever scores the first goal wins.
Bo1 is highly flukish, but then again we have Round Robin to try to balance it out (cuz good teams will play good on average)
