Yes, kinda stupid to have bo3 in a final. Its not going to be the same feeling
I would like to see BO5 finals. But why BO3 is boring for you? So BO5 is boring too?
rmr final bo5 cause esl
would love to see bo5 major grand final
who tf wants to watch a bo5 final
maybe some nolifer kids only
guess you also hated the last 3 majors
I never once have watched a full BO5. I've been a fan of CS since 2014.
I don't think BO5 ever works as a good final.
BO1's are as fair as they've ever been in CS right now, and they're doing a better job of predicting a suitable winner than ever before because of it. No more 3-0 leads off of the pistol, if the game is 3-0 or even up to 5-0, it most likely is because the other team was actually worse in the rounds that followed the pistol.
It's the exact same format used before and it's bo3s for qualifying or elimination matches, not only bo1s
Where have they mentioned the format ?
All tournament finals are bo5, so its only correct for the major the biggest tournament to have a bo5 final too
bo5 is bad, for both players and audience.
i mean, every important match is bo3, bo1 for the first 2 stages will work just fine, the only thing im sad about is the bo3 final
No bo1 to make the better team win more reliably.
Make the rest bo3 and let us watch the exciting ones, set up storylines and matchups that match the storylines.
Make the final bo3 so i dont have to sit for 4 hours.
BO5 grandfinal is so boring and not entertaining
Also, I think ESL One Cologne 2015 had the best group stage system. Just check. It was 8 best teams in august 2015 and they are all attended to Play-Off. 0% luck. Only skill
Average HLTV user
on bo1: Hurr durr bo1 so bad. So random. How can you decide best team in world like this.
on final being decided on only 2 or 3 out of 7 maps: perfect, bo5 too long ResidentSleeper.
Is this your first Major or?
This format is great lmao
pure domination of NaVi is never boring
Only 0-0, 1-0, 1-1 and 0-1 games will be bo1 you dummy.
BO3 is best format by far as a final imo, but yeah stupid they made bo5 rmr finals
damn i wish for all the group stage to be bo1 f$ this bo3
its swiss not round robin, and also qualifying/eliminating matches in the groups are bo3. bo1 decides initial placements to approximately sort teams from best to worst and then it transitions to bo3s to decide final placements to move on
There is always BO3 major final wdym
Swiss system is one of the best ever for competitive games.
It's considered one of the best formats.
Major has always been BO3, and advancement and elimination matches in the swiss stages are BO3. I've seen many teams fluke a 2-0 then lose 3 BO3's in a row to get eliminated, and vice versa.
Are you a fucking new*#$???
This is the same fucking format as every other major
drops enabled on major tell me ?
Pinnacle regionals with top100-200 teams - bo3
Major group stage - bo1
Can't even imagine how much flukes will happen
Hoping for as many bo3’s as possible
Ez 4 riders and cph flames, at least they will go through bo1 because that benefits tier 999 teams. It's so unfair...
Just coin toss the preliminary rounds, playoffs can be knife rounds and let the final be a full pistol round
bo3s are used for teams in elimination/advancing games of swiss stage
Bring back BO7.
We want BO7!!
if u think will be boring dont watch it, thank you!
Yea i don't get it. The bo1s i can understand but to not have bo5 finals is just stupid. I know it was like that every major but it's just stupid to have bo3 finals on the most important tournament of the year
Major is overrated anyway.
A competitve Bo3 final >>>>> a competitive Bo5 final.
Imagine 5 maps worth of OT, the match would never end, and the teams would be so tired by the end that the quality of gameplay would drop through the floor.
it is like that for ages and majors are cool just the last ones were boring because astralis domination
NAvi vs G2 major final
ez major for niko
The major-crybabies are back. They just crawl out of their holes each major to complain about the format lol.
Thats why major is a fluke and grand slam >>>>> major
just imagine a 1h30 min final, volvo smort
u clearly have no idea how swiss system works lmao
for me it would be better, to do all games bo3 and extend the major 2-3 days. bo1 is really luck !
bo5 final is too long and not exciting. In a bo5, it could be the 5th map before you actually start to care - it doesn't matter if you lose the first map. In bo3 it's exciting from the beginning because each map means so much more.
bo5 in RMR though was just idiotic
Especially towards the end of a major, players are highly motivated, but also a bit exhausted. Even in Bo3, the quality and performance can decrease with each map played. In Bo5 it is even more extreme. In all Bo5s that I've seen so far and went over 4 or even 5 maps, you could clearly see that. I can understand the arguments why viewers want to see a Bo5, but the quality suffers too much in my humble opinion.
Perhaps a change would do Counter-Strike some good. Maybe back to MR12? Or even MR9 with adjusted economy? Then it would be no problem to play more maps.
BO7 would be sick thou, would change the meta how teams prepare
Should be BO3 short matches (9 rounds win)
bo7 all games from start to end
Just use dotes ti system, it's perfect
When you say BO5 think about audience sitting in stands. 5 hours is too long if you are not watching it online at your home.
You clearly don’t understand the format, go look again please.
first major final in like two years and no bo5? feels bad man.
if u want all finals in bo5 you really don't have nothing to do xD
Bruh this is how every major since boston has worked aswell as that, all the the pros hate bo5's
This is wrong major will be interesing
major final should be bo7 kekw
major finals should be bo9 arms race.
lmao, BO1 and swiss stage is fun as fuck, since you has the oprtunity of some dark horses. Also the team will need to win a bo3 to qualify.
major has BO1 since ever and very good team showed a bt of they were capable of because of BO1.
also BO5 final is boring as fuck, simple as that. to long
Litterally no pros like BO5's. That's a solid argument in itself I'd say.
That is alone not enough, just the format
BO1s are fun. BO5s are too boring to be played on major. BO3 is enough for people to enjoy the game the most.
bo3 is garbage i agree. this is why cs is a dying game and dota is what valve cares the most about
Bo5s are way too long lmao.
I've never watched an bo5 final without skipping parts of it besides when BIG played.
Its just exhausting.
Swiss stage is the best you can have. also dont forget every Advance/Eliminating match will be played in BO3 meaning every team will atleast play 1 BO3
as much as i love watching bo5s, i have to say that i've only seen 1 or 2 actually good bo5s, because it's always 3-0 or 3-1, which is not interesting at all, or what happens even most, it goest 3-2 and the only interesting map is the decider and the first 4 maps are very one sided, like 16-7
so i have to say i even prefer bo3 for a major final, even tho if gambit and navi go to the final this will give advantage to gambit
The format is perfect for every instance of the tournament. BO5 would only be ok with upper bracket 1-0 advantage.
Even if the viewer likes to sit through a bo5 or not (seems to be mixed opinions on this) it's not good for players, endurance will be a factor and that COULD be fun, but what ussually happens on the 5th map is that you won't see good CS being played.
What do you prefer BO3 or BO5?
For me, i would like it to be BO5, i know it can be long af
But i always wathced dota 2 and its a lower bracket final (BO3) and the winner plays for the grand final that is BO5, this year, this sunday, team spirit played it 3 (2-1) games from lower + 5 (3-2) games in grand final and were the champions
They're playing for money, throphy and prestige, só they can play for 5-6 hours.
who gives a fuck its a major with a crowd for the first time in 2 years
Without Bo3 finals you won't have upsets that's litteraly the reason c9 won boston
Or ast won atlanta
Imo bo5 makes the games more boring as some teams semi give up on a map when it's like 1-1 then say let's win next map etc
That's why Bo3 is better you can't afford to lose a map and vetos can be a lot more exciting
Hey atleast it isn't like the first majors where it was litteraly RNG for the 3rd map of a major final lmao
Atleast it was very exciting tho
awwww this is ops first major. cute. hope you enjoy it man.
grand final BO3 MR12 no OT 😎
BO3 , BO5 who cars? all I want is good CS and good CS comes in BO3 or BO5 format.
Bo3 is nice in a bo5 i really dont care about the first 2 maps and the bo1s are good else the major would be a month long tournament
ESL > Major
Blast >>> Major
Dreamhack > Major
SnowSweetSnow = Major
GrandSlam < Major, cause 1M < 2M winner
P.S.: <Major - is RoflTournament
