They could have made this more interesting by having a round robin group stage for all four in one group to determine seeding and then have double bracket playoffs, bottom two to lower bracket, top two to upper bracket. Bo1 in groups, bo3 for playoffs, bo5 for grand final.
2016-09-20 14:37
That would be worse than this.

Why? It's fucking boring having one bo5 per day and it feels incomplete with only 3 matches between 4 teams. Maybe just have a double bracket, no group stage but there needs to be something more to this.
2016-09-20 14:57
Do you have a grasp of how long a bo5 is? Even if a team got 3-0'd it would still take like 3 hours. 3-5 hours of CS a day for 3 days from a 4 team tournament especially when it's actually relevant matches where the team's lifelines are on the line in each of those matches is pretty good.

I have a grasp of how long bo5s are, thank you very much. I'm not retarded like the majority of the community on this site. However, I disagree with how two teams are going to get to play only one bo5 where potentially, they could play two bo3s with a double bracket. Makes it far more exciting if a team that fucks up on the first day, potentially wins the tournament. A bo5 grand final would be great to top it all off.

+1 Group would be great, more matches and adds some randomness. Set pairs suck
2016-09-20 15:14
100k for 4 tier 2 teams, top kek

A $100,000 tournament with only 4 teams in it? Not just that, but $100k with the highest-ranked team #8? 1 match a day? - yawn.

A lot of teams have a busy schedule this month. That's a factor.
2016-09-20 17:36
wow! this format sucks! single elimination with 4 teams??? lucky for envy..... mouz vs godsent would have been the final....
2016-09-20 15:32

2016-09-20 16:41
Such a waste this is some mediocre teams now. It was such a sick tournament last year when it was the best four teams. Imagine if this was SK VP G2 and NiP.

They should have least have had a 3rd place decider between the 2 losers of their semi final. If 2 BO5's is too much on the same day (final + 3rd place decider) make the 3rd place match a BO3. But honestly if you decide to make it a single elimination tourney, get a 3rd place decider and 20 maps (4 BO5's) in the longest case scenario isn't too much in 3 days. (they can even it might get a long day put a 3rd place match BO5 then the final BO5 the same day).
