Theres a world cup final happening the same day, they want some people to atleast tune in for blast
what the actual fuck this is insane
Match times are bad for everyone, what is Blast thinking?
clearly cuz they want abu dabi ppl to watch it not you
50k viewer peak tho
idk 5 in the evening seems good to me
At least its blast and not any important tournament.
Yeah wtf 1 am to 10 am are the game times for me
That's why I'm travelling to UAE, be a TOP G.
just watch the recap on vladopard 5, always fun to do
1 am is a little crazy, 4 am I can handle (east coast)
Perfect time matches. First time I don't need to stay up late.
wait i thought the event would be played in palestine???
9pm at night for me so works for me can't say I agree with their decision to be bought out by Saudi Arabians on an ethical level
Normal times for them, abnormal times for us. It sucks but that’s the way international sports go.
I have to wake up at 8
Imagine cutting your viewership in half because you have a room temp iq and got control of scheduling the times. What an absolute joke to have the final start where none of America can watch.
Brother its the same for your NBA and NA league and cs we watch those games around 4 am.
Blast just want a, death event, they want to feel how Rio Major playoffs are..
and also what about the asian and Mena viewers when tournaments happen on west, late night,
for eg rio major, i was going to uni at 7 am and still there were these 2-2 bracket matches going on xd
These times are good for me ytb
sure let me call BLAST and tell them to move the event to NA so you can watch your 1 NA team during comfortable hours. sorry for the inconvenience NA master, please forgive us.
no, but the singular saudi oil prince that enjoys cs will certainly enjoy the time
Lol wtf is this. 1st game must be like 1 am for you
first game will be at 3am in Brazil time.... lul i wouldn't wake up this early not even for G2
Perfect times for me from 9am to the evening. Chill days full of top cs
youtube replays isn't allowed in usa?
Deutschland über alles in der Welt
AHAHHAHAHHA noscener spotted
get ready for paid actor crowd and probably staged matches, wooooooo corporation controlled sports wooo hoo
Just watch VOD's, problem solved.
a good schedule for us in Asia ahahah
american discovers time zone
These times are pure BLISS
5pm final, could not be better :)
I have no idea what the times would be for the UK, I'll have to check them.
EDIT: Actually not too bad.
Day 1: 6am-3pm
Day 2: 6am-3pm
Day 3: 11:30am-3pm
Day 4: 11:30am-3pm
Day 5: 10am
4am isnt even bad, its worse to wake up at 6am in weekends at least for me
edit: seems like the finals will be later than the groups so 4am is worse after all
I can't say I'd mind it but it's surely pretty weird matches times.
>europe and cis carries the whole cs scene
>lets put games on time when everyone from those regions are asleep or at work
+++ thinking at blast
Finals are fine for me (12AM) while quarters and semis are pretty unwatchable (1:30-5AM)
staying up till 1 am to watch liquid > final exams
who cares about NA timeline?
blah blah blah keep crying at least u dont have to wake up at 1am >:(
Day 1: 10:00-19:00
Day 2: 10:00-19:00
Day 3: 15:30-19:00
Day 4: 15:30-19:00
Day 5: 14:00
Can't see a problem here.
