+1 Some teams don't have a permaban as well
2021-10-23 17:25
honestly if they played a 100 maps over two weeks that would be the best giver of who the best team is but its pointless im against bo5 cos it dilutes the pressure heavy moments and those moments are the most fun to watch and observe and honestly teams can differentiate very well in such pressure heavy moments so its not like some total retards can upset a good team in a bo3 and three maps is perfectly able to allow teams with better map pools to use the fact they have better map pools tldr. more pressure heavy moments = better games

I think bo5 should be a thing, but EXCLUSIVELY for major finals, not random fucking tier 2 events which noone cares about, especially not an RMR event where all teams are already qualified, that would make bo5s way more interesting and ''prestigious''

i still dont have the time tbh from a maximising viewership perspective it doesnt make sense
2021-10-23 19:42
1 reply
That is the thing, that's why you should have a bo5 maximum once a year/ every second year, in that case people would make time (just like in world cups, finals, etc etc) And it would definitely maximize the viewership. There's absolutely nothing special about bo5 rn apart from the fact that its longer, if they wanted to, they could easily make bo5s exciting, by actually trying to make it exclusive.

Bo3 final is the highest quality final - Teams play their best maps - Both teams and arena are at their peak energy (wont happen in bo5, everyone gets tired) - Every map is important as after the second map can be elimination already 😁

That's the only fair way of running a double-bracket, it ensures that everyone is allowed to lose 1 series. It works for fighting games but with CSGO it could last ages, unless there is a schedule with an early bo3 - 2 hours break - another bo3 starting late afternoon. Possible if sunday is only dedicated to the grand final.

BO5 is just long. Teams aren’t good enough to play 5 maps at the highest level, even the best teams. So you get like 3 stomps and 2 decent maps when it actually goes to 5.
2021-10-23 15:54

you guys are just fucking stupid, the major is all or nothing. A bo3 is the standard for CSGO, it's all or nothing. There is no loser bracket in playoffs if you lose you are out it's about the better team and the team that wants it the most. That's why it's bo3, every map is important also bo5's are dragged out and boring I'd rather see a bo3 where all the players are at their peak performance than a bo5 with a sloppy last map. Disagree = biased, and you're objectively wrong if you think bo5 > bo3.

I value quality over quantity which a bo3 will ensure for me, more doesn't always mean better and why are you gatekeeping cs now? Are people not entitled to their opinions anymore, you're actually trying to gaslight me into thinking I don't like cs if I don't prefer bo5's over bo3's.

how is a bo3 rng with the last map, teams make conscious picks. Bo3 is the standard for csgo if you think teams haven't figured out how to veto correctly yet you might just be the dumbest mf alive. Bo3 is also better for viewership which this game fucking needs

Honestly nobody watches the 3rd and 4th map in a BO5 (assuming it goes all 5 maps) People get tired of sitting on their a$$ for more than 3 hours at a time BO3s create more tension and more excitement because it's a big deal if a team loses a map.
