yes feels more significant that's why only the best tournaments should have it. Cologne, Katowice and Majors
Overall I'm fine with other less relevant tournaments having it, but idk what pros think about that
Too long matches makes it boring
BO3 is always better
which t1 grand finals dont other than major
Im not too sure if its fair way
its more about endurance and keeping focus for up to 5 maps
Majors should be decided with one single knife round.
pls no, fkin boring unless they add new maps. cba watching the same maps over and over. cs 2 should make a hard reset remove all old maps and only add new ones.
yes u can have fun watching a cs grand final for 8hours in ur basement normal ppl dont have time for this
i feel that finals like iem dallas, iem brazil, etc should be bo3
bo5 for epl, cologne, katowice
major should stay bo3 imo
BO5s are fun and all until someone gets stomped 3-0 or 3-1.
Disagree. BO3 is more than enough to determine who is better. If one team is too strong 2 maps and its over instead of 3 and if its close then 3rd map is a thriller.
BO5's are great but a BO3 isn't bad either.
Definitely not all tournaments. Imagine how quickly it would get stale, too long, and boring. But for select tournaments it is awesome!
I fucking love b05s altho they should add a halftime show, play 2 maps. Then half time show (have The Vekkars play music or sum) then last 3 maps way more enjoyable as viewer + players can rest/prep for last 3 maps
Edit* this should atleast be the case for the major
I think only the top tier tournaments should have this, like the Majors, Katowice, Cologne, and maybe Blast World Final. I don't think EPL, IEM Dallas, IEM Rio, etc, should be bo5. I don't know if they will ever make majors bo5 though
Majors, BLAST World Final, Cologne, Katowice and Pro League. These tournaments should all have Bo5 finals.
The rest, Bo3. A title from a prestige tournament shouldn't come in a Bo3 like the others - that one SHOULD take endurance and the deepest playbook there is to win. Otherwise it's not that prestigeous at all.
no, bo5 is boring and long, imagine 5 maps + ots it can take even 7 hours
BO5 get way too long imo, players can be +6h playing if it gets 2-2
Every playoff match should be a BO5 as well.
Cologne, Kato, Majors and the World Final should be the only BO5s tourneys, anything more would just be too much. BO5s should always be saved for the most prestigious events.
The only problem with bo5s are OTs in my opinion, when each map can go up to 90 minutes or so because of them, it just not a good experience for both viewers and players, especially if there are multiple of those in one series, tbf that's more of game problem than a format one, but still the fact that a bo5 can go on for over 7 hours in total, it's just too much
Ban all BO5, this is boring and takes ages.
