i think EPL format is fucked because it is literally set up so we see the most games possible from shit teams with the triple elim bracket
Yeah, I think teams from group D will do better since they didn't have a rest between group stage and playoffs.
bring back groups and do bo2
wtf you talking about dude lol
Last EPL Liquid were in the position of EF and they got smashed by PaiN in the first round. So probably not.
What they should do is have all groups round robin, so every team plays 7 games, and do all groups at once, just swap day to day. Like say...
Monday: 4 Group A Games, 4 Group B Games
Tuesday: 4 Group C Games, 4 Group D Games
Wednesday: 4 Group A Games, 4 Group B Games
That way a team never goes more than 3 days without playing, all group-stage games finish in like 1.5-ish weeks, so the whole event would take like, 2-2.5 weeks.
Astralis worst excuse yet that they had too much time to prepare.
