NA so that liquid have a chance
Germany/Sweden, maybe poland.
as we could see by dota majors moscow is great, we do have our crowd favorites ofc, but even when home powerhouses like vp were playing liquid/og there were plenty of those who supported eu teams. i wont be creative if i mention brazil, poland and portugal also
somewhere in NA/BR since the teams wont make it far qnd there are a lot of fans of EU teams and players
Somewhere in Australia like Sydney. Maybe Singapore. Several places in North America as well maybe Toronto or Vancouver. Have another event in Boston or something.
didnt fnatic win first major tho?
Portugal was sick when blast happened there
For a neutral location, we'd need a country without a scene which isn't fun:/
Moscow, Kyiv... They love Csgo
Cologne ofc, the most unbiased crowd ever, also lanxess arena is the best arena in the world
Portugal blast was the best and non bias crowd
We know how passionate Brazil is, but its same like Denmark, theyll do anything to support their home team
I can say, give Major to Australia this time ? IEM Sydney always produce good crowd and event, and realistically OCE team will not make it that far (except Renegades Berlin) so the crowd is not going to be a problem
or maybe Portugal
india. huge neutral crowd
Yemen, Sanaa by Thowra park. Very neutral crowd and everyone already loves to play csgo irl.
Tyloo will never make to the playoff so dont worry about biased crowd
Small scene so they're neutral.
Portugal, just look at blast lisbon 2018
Azores, Canary Islands, Gibraltar, Malta, Balearics, Madeira, Sicily, Corsica, Sardinia, Cyprus, Ireland, Iceland, Bermuda, Shetland.
Why am I thinking only about West-Eurasian islands...?
Or maybe South Africa and gigaton of Vuvuzelas all over again?
Portugal no bias whatsoever, our scene is not good enough to even have someone at a major atm
Maybe we cheer a little for a brazilian squad? But besides that the majority would be just enjoying counter-strike the entire major.
Romania, Spain, France if Vita is not competing
Cologne, Katowice, cluj napoca, Moscow, petersburg, Rio, Sydney and kyiv will all be cool
some oil rig? but you have to fly in every one and if a storm hits, it gets rocky :D
Cologne or Schalke Arena would be great locations.
But atm with the covid shit no way to do it
germany since german cs scene is totally dead, wont be any crowd bias
1. Poland 2. Germany 3. Norway
These are the best locations imo .
Lisbon is good too
Rome to revitalise Italian cs
with covid: none.
travel restrictions will do their part to ensure theres mostly "home crowd"
spain!!! make it outdoors in a summer night!!!
Amsterdam or Rotterdam, Neutral fans (no teams)
Central point in Europe
sweden was great but pgl fucked up with mics
Amsterdam, New York, Portugal. As much as I like sweden and denmark I just can't put them here because they aren't neutral at all.
Portugal should be one of the most common hosted countries in LAN, Good timezone for NA/SA/EU, is cheap to go, has very good crowd and has a small scene so there cant be much bias like we had in Copenhagen
Imo some country without a top 5 team to see proper neutrality
Switzerland is a neutral place
If you want a non biased, awesome crowd, Lisbon is the place to go. BLAST Lisbon 2018 puts this last BLAST to shame in terms of crowd reaction and overall having a good audience.
(pls I want to go to next LAN with crowd in Poland)
NYC major please (or anywhere NA)((actually no, anywhere east coast NA))(((ACTUALLY VALVE LOVE ME PLEASE)))
Polish crowd is the best and we have no tier 1 team sadly so won't be biased
How about Prague? No top teams so no bised crowd, long history in CS, great city in central Europe and also affordable
and well maybe some new ones
I dont know why we never had (at least recently) a great event in Paris :(
switzerland, austria, italy, germany (since BIG sucks there should be no problems), france (EPL in montpellier was pretty nice even with G2 loosing the final)
Rio de Janeiro hosted by BLAST Production would be so fucking nice
Australia, most places in US, Sweden, maybe somewhere like Norway/Netherlands even
Portugal isn't appreciated enough, I feel like it would make for a great location as we saw in blast.
there is a reason why germany and poland are the best for hosting tournaments :)
Just do it in Lisbon, cheap, awsome place, good people, amazing csgo fans ez profit
what do you mean shox wont he first major? kek, fnatic won the first major..... then the pols, then the sweeeeeds won again. lawl.
edit. oh yeah, why not host a lan in like spain or hamburg/frankfurt, Germany? those are central no?
i mean the locations arent really an issue atm.. are they?
Somewhere in Brazil. I want to anal carnaval with hot Brazil womens)))
Manchester, idk where in the UK mezzi is from but alex sounds southern so every team would get booed equally
anywhere but Denmark in the voice of thorin
