Major will be boring
 | 
Russia clockkeeper 
Two Swiss Bo1 stages? Really? Just letting random bo1s decide who goes through. Then Bo3 final. Bo3 finals are just stupid and not entertaining at all. Plus why, just WHY rmrs' finals were bo5 and the major final will be bo3?

Its really hilarious to see so many rants about Bo3 especially. Valve Majors have always had Bo3 majors and its for the best imo. Bo5 is simply too long, imagine sitting in the arena for 5+ hours just to watch some CS.

You're definitely new. The major grand finals have always been a B03. No one will watch a B05 grand finals, it's too long.

not talking about the fact majors were always bo3 but saying nobody will watch bo5 finals is bullshit you have a lot of tournaments with bo5 grand finals in CS and the arenas were always packed. If they want to see great CS they will be there for bo5

B05 are gruesome and too long sometimes. You can see it in Gambit against Heroic in EPL grand finals. They were making silly mistakes because of how tiring it was.

I understand but if there would be just BO3s a lot of tournaments would have different champions. Last year NAVI would have won finals against Vitality and Astralis or ESL Belo Horizonte in 2018 mousesports woul have won it with stand in instead of at that time far better FaZe

You're assuming they "would've won". We never know... Because you also have to account that both teams are exhausted. If am not mistaken the EPL grand finals between Heroic & Gambit lasted for 7 hours. I am not entirely against B05, because during LAN, they can have a break and leave the stage for a while, whereas if you do it online. It is far more mentally exhausting, at least that's in my opinion.

thats true if it would have been bo3 veto could have been different so you are right but I watned to say that in BO5 team with better map pool usually wins hopefully there will be more and more LANs again and then it will be OK but still on LAN there is the thing you said people will be in arena for a lot of hours :D
2021-10-21 14:11

I understand where you're coming from in terms of having a stronger map pool. But in a B03, I think it becomes far more strategic in terms of banning certain maps to gain certain advantages. Like Astralis picking Vertigo to throw Liquid off.

No, because most people don't have time to watch a full B05 match. There is a reason why a major grand final has always been a B03. Even for me even if I have all the time in the world, I wouldn't want to watch a B05. Just my opinion, I guess it's very subjective, and dependent on the person.

So don't watch it if you don't have time check replay later on. Thars the stupidiesy excuse so cause u font have time maybe it shoulf be bo1 firdt to 9 short comp lol.. Even bo3 is fluke and bo5 better.. the team with better strats. Mentality and wider map pool wins which makes better teams and teams who practice ans put in work more end up on top unlike bo2 whoever gets luckier and better map picks wins and and major final that is fluked amd based on luck is stupid the only pro players complain is bots not pros as they want fluke kinda like c9 fluke major win just to disband after if they was that good would of kept going and if it was bo5 doubt they would of won

I guess in a BO5 there is a fairly high chance that at least some of the maps will be one-sided like let's say the last NaVi - Vitality final was apart from Mirage the decider, so it's kind of pointless then. Otherwise I did enjoy it most of the times in the online era but it's probably not suited to the arena environment.

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.

Gambit - Heroic NaVi - Vitality Extra Salt - Godsent First 3 examples of the good Bo5 finals that I remember just this year. Imagine if these matches were bo3?
2021-10-18 11:05

I'd imagine them to have been better games. Heroic would've won in overtime instead of a 16-6 stomp. The Vitality-NaVi match was in 2020 btw, Vitality would've lost after losing 16-5 and 16-12, and deservedly so. Looking at these scorelines so far, they've been either stomps or heavily skewed towards 1 team, not so many close matches as BO3's or BO1's give us. And despite that Dreamhack tournament being close, THE SERIES TOOK 8 HOURS TO FINISH 8 HOURS NO ONE IN THE WORLD HAS TIME (or the patience) TO WATCH 8 HOURS OF A MATCH EVEN ON WEEKENDS I'm praying that the Majors will never use BO5's if a CS game can have a maximum of 30 normal rounds

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

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.
2021-10-18 20:46
Are you a fucking new*#$??? This is the same fucking format as every other major

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
2021-10-19 11:53
Major is overrated anyway.
2021-10-19 11:54
Simple afk HLTV average brains Major finals must be played in a BO5 format. / closed. You can't have BO5 in tier 2 events like EU RMR hltv.org/matches/2351902/nip-vs-ence-iem.. And then the most important and legendary trophy in CS to be played in BO3. The best way to figure out which is the best team are BO5's where you understand which team has better consistancy , better strats and also deeper map pool.

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.

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

Ok, then it doesn't matter "as much". Of course it matters to an extent. But you have 4 potential maps ahead of you, it doesn't have the same meaning as in a bo3. It's isn't life or death which everyone knows - the casters/the players/the audience - so it makes it less exciting.
2021-10-21 10:26
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.

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.

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
2021-10-21 01:31
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
2021-10-21 01:46
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.
2021-10-21 01:53
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.
2021-10-21 02:01
who gives a fuck its a major with a crowd for the first time in 2 years
2021-10-21 03:12
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
