idk i went to iem oakland 2017 (the one where it was a 5 map affair between faze and nip) and people were really lively all the way through
2022-02-27 23:01
Were you sleeping in cologne final map 5?
2022-08-08 11:28
Imagine having tickets to spend the day watching some great counter strike and having to leave after 2 or 3 hours because the game is over... thats why watching major semis is infinitely more rewarding than major finals since you get to see 4-6 maps instead of 2-3
2022-02-28 10:51
You clearly never were in crowd... You will love the atmosphere and you will get the vibe and energy from the crowd! It definitely would be not boring at all

it's not about b05, it's about late start, like 80% of people will go to sleep before the match ends. I have to go work in 5 hours either.

Sleep is overrated, if I was attending a top-tier tournament I wouldn't care if I only had like 3-4 hrs sleep that night (I sleep normally like 5 hrs also when I work). Surely people can sacrifice being tired for one day and then sleep the following day after work or whatever.

For sure goes for the players. But if tournament organizers want to make the sport better entertaiment for the masses they should keep finals bo3 too.

Bo3 is the best length for a cs game in almost every aspect. Only argument for bo5 is that it will force teams to play maps they are not so comfortable with.

I love cs but pls no more BO5 finals, its so long its exhausting for the viewers, the casters and the players. plus its less exiting than a BO3, only case you can make for is the major final if it once a year.
2022-02-27 21:08
it's not stupid, it's legendary, BO5s are stupid af for events with tier2 teams, not important events, but kato is great & majors should have BO5 too imo

I agree although if it had gone further the level of CS would've dropped like hell for sure due to exhaustion so it's better FaZe won 3:0.

I really dislike the BO5 format.
2022-02-27 22:57
You're acting as if this quadruple ot was a common occurance, it simply is not. Usually tournament organizers plan in 3 hours for a bo3, so 5 hours for a bo5. That means that if we start at 5pm europe time, we will be done at 10pm ON AVERAGE even with all 5 maps being played out which rarely ever happens in bo5 matches. It's a non-issue
2022-02-27 22:59
We all wanted it to go on for at least another 2+ hours yeah that'll show them!

BO5 is good for a grand finale. Starting it at 4 pm is not so good... The BO should start at 1 pm. Also, MR12 would be way better for BO3/BO5.
2022-02-28 10:52

Mr12 could be an overall improvement for the pro games. But i dont think the fans will ever understand that.
2022-02-28 12:42
Yeah no reason to start so late, if we had 5 maps on top of the first 3 this would end like 1-2 am in my timezone, like wtf

yes, I can imagine, wouldve been the greatest bo5 ever. problem? its organizers fault they arent considering it could be even longer than a marathon
2022-02-28 12:45
they just played 3 maps, whats the stupid thing you annoyed? hahahahaha so mad and clueless
2022-02-28 12:58
BO5 is great, to end the tournament on the highest note
2022-02-28 13:04
Nothing wrong with BO5. People acting like it’s a chore to watch top tier CSGO. Watch a map, go smoke a bowl with some friends, and eat some food, then get back in time for the next map. Now if it was some cartoony game for kids like Valorant, I could understand.
