The old pick em system was better
 |

I've to admit it, I picked Na'Vi and lost my diamond coin, as they lost the final. But its absurd, I had almost everything right until Final (6/8 Challanger, 7/8 Legend, 5/7 Playoffs) and still did not get the coin. The old point system, in which for each right pick you got a point was by far better, its a nonsense, that just because of one match you dont get the diamond coin.

Unlucky. legend stage was the hardest to predict. I had - 7/9 Challengers(picked Astralis to advance), - 5/9 Legend(picked g2,vitality, c9), - 5/7 Playoffs( picked Furia and CHF) Got Diamond coin ofcourse but I dont care much about the coin just the extra zazzz it gives when watching the games.

Navi was not bad until the grand final. How is it possible, that in the most important match the support player is the top fragger? They just didnt show up to the game, and still took first match to OT.

Nah, the diamond coin should be hard to get, the thing is: All the new pickems have been easy because everyone knew Astralis was winning the first ones and Navi was winning Stockholm.
2022-05-23 11:05
I agree, reaching 75 points for gold was a much more fair and reasonable system. Ever since they made you pick the final winner from the start its always been wacky. This sort of system does not translate well for a game as random and inconsistent as CSGO.

I just want Valve to fix the 3-0 and make it stop being a discard slot for teams that aren't bad enough to go 0-3 and not favorite enough to advance.
2022-05-23 11:09
2 replies
+1 the 3-0 pick makes no sense, it's too risky to put a favourite 3-0, so it's almost always a throwaway point. Should just be top 8 to qualify, and team to go 0-3.

yeah I rather have the 3:0 and 0:3 gone and get 8 slots to pick from instead of 9. although I did have every 0:3 correct the 3:0 makes no sense.
2022-05-23 11:23
yeah i don't get why valve got so lazy with it and the difference between gold and diamond is big, pretty sure you can skip the first stage altogether and still get gold

I agree, having to predict the whole playoff bracket should be like a diamond+ coin or some shit, otherwise point based is cool.

was it? I follow cs and this grand final was a coin flip match up. Faze won it so easy, because noone from navi showed up. How come the supporter is top fragger for a team with 3 insane players?

I realize that. But what are the chances, that 3 of the players have a bad game? B1t and S1mple was in top 5 rating this major and than this final. If you tell me this was ez for faze and navi had no chance you clearly don't follow cs yourself.

it is supposed to be really hard to get the diamond coins, so they made it harder in order for everyone to have them.
2022-05-23 11:28
The old system had only bronze, silver and gold. U can ez get gold without predicting the final so I think it's fair

Well, it is. I think this system is way better than the old one. I preffered to make the picks with stickers instead of buying the viewer pass tho

Tbh the playoff pickem for the "winner" is a huge fucking scam for new players who don't know how it actually works. The text above the box where you place the winning team says something like: "Pick one correct team for the grand final". That would seem like it doesn't matter whether you pick faze or navi to reach the final; you would think to get one correct pick on the grand final, which is the last piece for diamond coin - but NO! You only get it correct when the team of your pick actually wins the final which in this case was FaZe. So all the players who picked Navi got a gold coin even though they would've gotten 5 correct picks on challenger and legends stages.
2022-05-23 11:52
tbf everyone would get gold pick em if it was old system, cuz ez playoffs to predict until final but yeah it was better system

2022-05-23 12:01
I was rather lucky with my pick ems for this major. The Challengers Stage was okie dokie. (7/9) But the Legend Stage was really tough especially with many upsets here and there. (6/9) I got the flawless picks for the playoffs. My gut feeling said Spirit would make it coz of the 3-0 from the Legends Stage. (7/7). I went for FaZe cause I just wanted to witness karrigan to win this major, which I did at the Sportpaleis. Check it here: imgur.com/a/CUll7JE A change in doing pickems for the next major would be really nice tho :) It will give us a new challenge to do a bit of research.

I was laughing at my friend because he got 4/9 in legends stage and picked wrong major winner (we both did) that he would have silver coin but he got gold like me Basically having 5/9 in one stage + correct playoffs (they were really easy) without winner is enough for a gold coin, I think that's just too free

Gold coin is free, but it shouldn't be. How come someone who misses one Stage completly and just does not pick anything, ends up getting the same coin like someone who picks completly right, just the wrong winner? 0 logic I cry for free everyday

2022-05-23 13:07
If you didn't have to pick the final correctly then literally everyone would have diamond, it would be pointless. Now it's like 70% gold, 30% diamond and thorin on bronze . And that's better imo
