1 month+ long
Boring matches 90%
Prize pool poop (for top pros)
20 people crowd
Full of tier2 matches
Tries to be edgy and fun too much (nt tho)
Personally i ve never felt more bored, even showmatch banana cups like blast are more entertaining. I can watch australia na brazil and tier 2 eu teams getting stomped only a for a limited amount of time before i collapse.
even good teams will not make it interesting. You still have last chance even after 2 losses. Games against teams likes of EG, Rooster and etc.
Out of all event only Monte-Heroic was exciting game since it was single elimination
A typical tournament is exciting because teams that win play more. You want to watch the best teams i.e teams that win. In epl group stage, you get loosing teams play more than the winning teams.
On top of that, as you have pointed out, there is nothing on the line except for a couple of matches in a week.
And of course after the 4 weeks group stage we will have playoffs matches occurring at the same time, just great !
Was there really no better way to do this ? Like have simultaneous matches happen during group stage which would significantly shorten it and that way we can have a good schedule during the playoffs
Ngl I think I'm in the minority cause I genuinely like EPL cause I enjoy watching cs and a 4 week even where only a major can show me more variety of match-ups is like heaven to me.
That and I get to laugh at shit that happens during the matches.
I think the cast does well to fill up the filler and waiting times but since I gotta work, I can't keep up with the 'lore' or their inter caster tournaments. I think it's fine for one event to be like that, given you'll only see this many different teams compete on a Major
