it is. Now.
2014-08-18 14:55
i like the tourney so far and excited for day 2. however it just baffles me how in a 250k competition two bo1s can seal a teams faith, especially given the random factor of the map veto system. it just seems absurd that teams have practiced for weeks, paid for flights and hotels and get to play 2 fucking maps (at worst). some have a slow start and before they know it they are packing bags. make it bo3 groupstage and play a lot of matches simultaneously or use the g3 round robin thing.
2014-08-14 23:48
whats your problem with new maps? did dat win vs VP? did dat win vs iBP? Where is your random result.
2014-08-15 01:25
dont have a huge problem with them, where did i state that? just think that 7 map pool (2 new maps) with 2 vetos for each team = after that random pick + bo1 is kind of a fucked up system, if you take in to account that teams can drop out after 2 losses.
2014-08-15 01:44
Where is the gotv vasters :/
2014-08-15 01:24
Hi guys, I kid

2014-08-18 01:55
Oh, VOD, I'm way too sleepy to read properly ^^ Nah, just check out twitch.tv/esltv_cs and skip through past broadcasts

They are up :)
2014-08-21 17:21
I see, thanks :)
2014-08-21 18:19
I didn't know where to report it so I'll write it here: apex and happy's POVs vs. London Conspiracy are misplaced, there's apex POV on happy's page and happy's POV on apex page. Can you fix that? Thanks in advance!
2014-08-21 20:46
Fixed, thank you :)

No video of Hiko being better than an aimbot (if anyone has the timestamp of that sick p2k frag, pls give). kappa. no interview to team wolf members, and they did better than VoxE (nobody knows them and they won 7 rounds vs NiP).
