2014-03-11 17:27
no dreamteam, are u kidding me :|
2014-03-11 17:27
thanks :x
2014-03-11 17:32
Where does it say that?
2014-03-11 17:34
The fact that steel is observing makes all the difference in the world. Can't wait
2014-03-11 17:30
But there is only one official stream :'( They wont be covering 50% of the group matches on the official dream :( We are going to hear 1 for 1 trade for the rest of the matches.
2014-03-11 18:26
Multi-Twitch it, mute Anders stream, and then you can watch both the matches at the same time, whilst listening to the official stream?
2014-03-11 19:03
What if I wanted the Navi match and its not being streamed? :(
2014-03-11 19:07
TOUGH TITTIES
2014-03-11 19:13
Anders stream will be streaming whatever game that the official stream isn't streaming.
2014-03-11 19:19
But 1 for 1 trade? :(
2014-03-11 19:22
You do realise you could just watch in game? :P
2014-03-11 19:23
too boring without casters :( I wish it could be like Dreamhack, 2 official streams running simultaneously! Would have been sweet!
2014-03-11 19:35
You still wouldn't have avoided your initial problem?
2014-03-11 19:39
I don't see the problem here. Official stream, streams 50% of the matches and NiPTV streams the other half. You won't miss a match if you have both open just like with Dreamhack.
2014-03-12 01:22
Why would you mute Anders? Get another monitor instead and watch EVERYTHING :D
2014-03-12 10:56
reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/20.. You will also get drops from watching NiPTV and i guess Anders is gonna stream the matches the official stream aren't Edit: didn't see Gumpsters replies
2014-03-11 22:08
lets go Lgb :D
2014-03-11 17:31
I am hoping for a 1 hour delay on sunday :/ rest of the matches is all covered up. I don't get why they are playing it so soon :(
2014-03-11 17:32
because of lol and sc2 grandfinals scheduled later
2014-03-11 17:34
I was kinda expecting that... it sucks but hopefully I am getting a way to see it.
2014-03-11 17:37
Friday, March 14th: 13:00 Quarter-final #1 16:00 Quarter-final #2 19:00 Quarter-final #3 Saturday, March 15th 13:00 Quarter-final #4 Are the teams from A and C group the quarterfinal matches #1 and #2 and are the teams from B and D group in quarterfinal matches #3 and #4 on saturday? I need to know this for my dreamteam,dont want to pick players from the teams that wont play on saturday at all...
2014-03-11 17:32
"In the playoffs the teams will face each other in a single elimination bracket. The bracket will be drawn when the group stage comes to an end. The first round will be a team that finished in first place in the group versus a team that finished in second in another group. All games during the playoffs will be best of three." The draw is randomly done for QFs.
2014-03-11 17:35
crap... And they really need to do double elimination playoffs for big tournaments like this..
2014-03-11 17:37
Why?
2014-03-11 17:45
because u can have a match worthy of finals in quarterfinals already if someone lets say fail 1 match in their groups,i know it lasts much longer that way but it would be better. Last time on Dreamhack winter it was also like this and i remember that i wanted to see i think dignitas vs fnatic ,but it was impossible because they were on the other side of the bracket :(
