majors can be a one-off occasion for BO5s to happen. Or for S-tier events only. So that there is an extra challenge, a cherry on the top, maybe?

tbh most of the pros aren't putting like 100h/ 2 weeks for this game... and 5 games almost non stop is not funny at all, u can even try that urself =D Try to tryhard 5 games in a row u will get bored
2021-10-23 18:49

I'm supposed to feel bad because they got bored? It's their job and they're making good money out of it. It's not like they play BO5 everyday. Some pro's are afraid from BO5s because they know they dont have the mental strength or the map depth required.
2021-10-24 08:42
To be fair most pros have like only 60 hours past 2 weeks but ur right

dota games shorter
2021-10-23 18:53
with MR 24 or 16 or whatever it would be better. dota matches usually last like 30-40 minutes, sometimes even 25 minutes. if you look at this year's IEM cologne, there was a bo3 between astralis and navi. map 1 was 55 minutes, map 2 went to two overtimes and 1h 34min, and map 3 was 45 minutes. maps 1 and 3 were clear victories, yet they took longer than most dota matches if you look at epl 13 finale between heroic and gambit, the whole thing took 7+ hours. I don't hate bo5's, but it was bit much

it was like 4-5 hours, cs would be way longer if all maps played

i think bo5 is good for stuff like Pro League final when you know it's mostly hardcore CS watchers, but for major or Cologne, Id prefer bo3
2021-10-23 18:46

I think When the final starts at 4-5 pm BO5 would be great in Arena cuz you get 4-5 maybe 6 hours and you don't know who will win. The EPL Final with 5 maps and last map 16-14. That live in Arena holy shit would be great.
2021-10-23 19:21
only nolifers say that bo5 is good
2021-10-23 18:48
Bo5 is the best ofc pussy flat earthers like elige hate it because playing hurt his little fingies
2021-10-23 18:54
I would equally disturbed if all finals were BO5 as every final would be BO3. Best is like it is now, every once in a while we have a BO5 final, don't need more, don't need less, currently it's fine as it is. Nothing says you have to focus 7 hrs onto the match, I don't typically even give BO3 my full focus most of the time but it's relaxing in the weekends to have a CSGO stream on the 2ndary display meanwhile you do other stuff and you go have a coffee in between matches or do some chores and come back to watch some more etc.
2021-10-23 18:59
Yes i agree, even if the major finals will be bo5 i'll only watch the last game but i would watch the entire bo3 :)
2021-10-23 18:56
Easy solution for such lazy players. Don't go into the final so it isn't their problem.

You guys are all pathetic and genuinely just dumb. You cry for years for an event and then want it to have less playtime. If you don't want to watch, then don't watch. For the players : They only play a game for all their insane money. Of course they would all cry for comfort because they don't have the ability to do it for 5 maps. But then again, don't cry why other esports has more hype
2021-10-23 20:08
I think b05 is perfect for finals. It pushes the teams to really show up and it is good they have to perform on not just three maps.
2021-10-23 20:15
League has bo5 games from quarters to finals, these people get paid absurd amount of money to play, they should stop complaining and grow up. If they don't like it, then they should wake up every day at 7 am and work for 8-12 hours a day 5 times a week and see how that feels. Also b05 is great for viewers since they get to see most of the maps insted of a random map and Inferno every single game.

I think that's how you get the best conclusion to who the best team is though, who has the broadest map pool because with 3 maps you can just win the map selection process which is part of the game too I guess but I don't think it gives you as total a result as winning 3 out of 5 maps. A best of 3 is still good though too but I feel that can leave more room for "but what if this" or "what if he hit that shot" "what if they didn't lose that second round after winning the pistol on ct side" it's not really as satisfying compared to, you had at least 3 chances to show what you had and you lost the better of the two teams was clearly this one.

if the event is online, i can understand running a bo5, but not in an arena. From a viewer standpoint. As a player i wouldnt want bo5 either, too long and stressing to sometimes still bring your best game on map 5 and then maps could potentially go OT as well...
2021-10-24 16:21
The International GF's are bo5 and the team from the Lower Bracket could play 8 games straight. Considering how much more mentally exhausting is DotA2 is compared to CS, I dont really understand why cs pros really complain, you are getting paid crapload of money and ur playing for a huge prizepool.
