I was already against BO1 seeding because it's not enough maps to determine a better team but now MR3 Tie Breakers? You have been smoking shit IEM this is the worst format I've ever seen Might as well coin flip the matches it would take less time

where did I cry? I don't follow any CIS Team in perticular Just find the format stupid af

+ super confusing to follow, + competitive integrity can even come in question
2021-10-01 18:13
Why is it bad? You want whole maps as tiebreakers? No time for that. Using mr3 tiebreakers is much better than using shit like round difference

MR3 BETTER THAN RD??? Might be the worst bait I've seen yet RD literally takes no extra matches and is reliable and doesn't rely on some lucky string of rounds

RD is by far the worst tiebreaker criterium you can use. RD gets heavily swayed by side selection, which is luck based. Let's take Ancient for example, if you start CT side and you lose you will probably lose by 16-13, if you start T side and you lose it's usually more like 16-7. RD is completely unviable to use.

Then get proper BO3 matches for the whole tournament including tie breakers, we're talking about RMR points, not just cash prize here, IEM fucked everyone up with this miserable format
2021-10-01 18:22
should use RD of tied teams only MR3 is also luck based due to side selection as you said

How is mr3 supposed to be affected by side selection? Thinking that is a logical fallacy, every team gets to play 3 rounds on each side.

based on your example, a team starts as CT on Ancient and go 3-0

My example was only about the resulting round difference. If a team starts on ancient and goes 3-0, where is the problem? The other team also gets 3 rounds on the CT side. Side selection does not matter when it comes to determining the winner of the map, except for a psychological advantage maybe.

But this event determines what teams can go to the Major, already BO1's for that was stupid, but MR3's are even worse

yeah lets just change the format to bo3s for tiebreakers. sure actual series would be nice but overtime tiebreakers are still a way better than round difference

so much better using actual rounds to break a tie instead of going through a list of tiebreakers like record against common opponent or round differential

None of those options should be used, BO1 tie breakers are the bare minimum for what could be a future major spot, and IEM waste those with stupid MR3

The fact that K23 is better off losing than winning is fucking lmao

vALVE is to blame... only game 2 weeks for all rmr´s ... so esl had to work around that... But its absolute garbage , and a bit unfair... should be 1 more bo1 tie break at least

Pretty braindead format but the tournament would be too long imagain 24 teams will all matches bo3 and round robin where all teams play eachother
