CSGO was so much better with them, NA CS needs them to come back for our tier 2 scene
i kinda miss australian events and cs summit
dreamhack gone = no event in canada for the rest of time gg
I know I'm biased, but give me one tournament ESL runs which a team cannot qualify for through the open circuit? Teams also have a pathway to all BLAST tournaments except for the initial group stages
EPL is very much linked to ECL, and all the other ESEA leagues, so there are your promotions and demotions for most of the scene. I'll be honest, I don't care/know much about money, but I think the partnerships are the reasons the scene can even operate at this level.
The circuit is nowhere near elitist when you compare it to league of legends, or even Valorant now.
I am starting to hope that Richard Lewis is right about the grand market correction this year
I don't know why it is, but I have a had time giving a shit about blast tournaments
Honestly i liked the 2019 major somewhat.
But Blast is actually my favorite. They always produce good quality tournament (sometimes with some weird formats...) and now that we can see that all the old GOD like casters and analysts are coming back then the paris major will for sure become one of the best majors i believe.
I really dislike blast format and have no interest in watching it. its like the cs version of the european superleague, meaningless matches. no thanks
+1 i think having only Blast and esl killing or gonna kill csgo pro scene
