- No upsets - Ence going absent and doing nothing against Navi - Faze vs Spirit not going to 3rd was a huge disappointment altho it was a good match A good final might save this a bit.

spirit was expect to go this far btw

Navi Heroic was an decent game. But besides that I agree. But a NaVi Faze final should be a banger

Spirit had 3 chances to close Mirage, unfortunately they didn't take their chances, but overall it was a good run

It was on Dust 2. Not Mirage. Mirage was 13 - 16. Dust 2 was 23 - 25

Nuke was the decider but it didn't go to the 3rd map. Spirit lost both Mirage and Dust 2. hltv.org/matches/2356167/faze-vs-spirit-..

Mate, those 2 semifinals were not the same at all.

Just because they went as expected doesn't mean it wasn't good. Plus think about it, if NIP beat FaZe, NaVi have an easy major title, if Falmes beat ENCE, NaVi have an even easier grand final spot. Basically every finals game has been great except for the ENCE v NaVi blowout, but the FaZe v Spirit game was awesome, and the grand final should hopefully be sick, though I do wish it was a BO5 instead

They can drag out but it can lead to some really intense moments in the later games. Maybe I'm too used to ESL tournaments though

The only thing that's disappointing is that Vitality and G2 didn't make it. Other than that, we got the best possible final we could have. There are great narratives on both teams for them to win it, which is something none of the other playoff teams had, so I don't get why anyone would complain about it.

Imagine Furia, Vitality, G2, Faze and Navi in the playoffs of ESL Rio major
2022-05-22 08:59
In my eyes the teams that made it to the play offs were in the best form for the major. Sure, they're not big brand names but spirit looked way more cohesive as a team than vitality. G2 also looked like they could lose any match. It's cool to see some of these new stars on the stage
2022-05-22 10:49
the teams that got to playoffs deserved it, the best teams got to playoffs not vitality or g2
2022-05-22 10:54
spirit and heroic really couldve won their games...
2022-05-22 02:47
upsets just lead to underwhelming matches afterwards, this is the best final we could get this major, its basically 50/50

Do you need upsets to make a playoff interesting?? The spirit FaZe game was worth every penny that I spent in traveling to the arena!!! Not disappointing at all

Spirit lost their chances, strongest teams proceed to finals, all is fair. I hope Spirit and Ence will stay solid with this rosters further.
2022-05-22 10:40
The Ence Navi Semis was just boring, they could have skipped that and just agreed that Navi went through and just not play it, would have been more entertaining
2022-05-22 10:40
playoffs like this still better than Majors from Astralis era in 2019
