ELEAGUE to host next Major

Striker
September 27th, 2016 17:03

The tenth CS:GO Major will be organized by ELEAGUE and will take place from January 22-29 at Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.

In August it was confirmed that the tenth CS:GO Major would not take place by the end of 2016, as Valve were looking into the option of hosting it in January 2017.

ELEAGUE have just revealed that they will organize the next $1 million Major, which will take place from January 22-29. Only the last three days, supposedly reserved for playoffs, will be open to the public, with tickets already being sold.

The event's venue will be the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, which has a capacity of less than 5,000 seats, the lowest amount since DreamHack Winter 2014. 


ELEAGUE to organize the tenth Major

ELEAGUE have also revealed that the grand final will be broadcast by TBS as well as Twitch.

An offline qualifier running from December 15-18 in ELEAGUE's studios in Atlanta will determine the eight Challengers.

16 teams will take part in the offline qualifier, eight of which will come from a Regional Minor system while the other eight are ESL One Cologne's bottom eight teams:

Denmark Dignitas  Sweden NiP Europe mousesports  Europe FaZe
United States CLG North America OpTic  France Envy France G2

Eight teams who have already secured a spot at ELEAGUE's first Major by placing in the top eight at ESL One Cologne are:

Brazil SK United States Liquid  Sweden GODSENT  Poland Virtus.pro
CIS FlipSid3  Denmark Astralis  Russia Gambit CIS Natus Vincere

OMFG I was Soo Hoping for this shit to come
2016-09-27 17:41
Iam dissapointed from Atlanta. More than 50 percent teams are from EU why is not major in EUROPE? Matches will start in 16 and end at 1 in night. Iam going to school on 7 and finishing at 15. But i want to play PICKEM challenge and watch all matches. Rip my grades. :( But iam looking forward :D
2016-09-27 18:45
SK Liquid GODSENT Virtus.pro FlipSid3 Astralis Gambit Natus Vincere are any of these teams even good anymore?? :/ ELEAGUE have also revealed that the grand final will be broadcast by TBS as well as Twitch. i hope all ppl get to see the full stream for free... not like last eleague where u had to pay to watch on tbs and could only get observer feed otherwise...

gambit, flipside, astralis, godsent, liquid are all probably no top8 team at the moment. Its ridiculous that teams hold their spot for over 7 months.
2016-09-27 17:16
astralis has been legend from day 1 over 3 years so stfu.

Well, you have no spirit in csgo then. Them yelling "U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!" when NA team plays just shows that they truly love their team and are with them to the end. Thats the true spirit, how it should always be, home country always cheers for their own team, even in real sports.

Have you watched mlg columbus? This Kids chanted "usa .." every game not just those with American teams in it. It was so annoying.

2016-09-27 17:23
It is more about the Production Value and coverage on TBS imo And with the low amount of Seats its one of the greatest Venues CS has ever seen

???? SK, Virtus.pro and Na'Vi are better than almost every single team that needs to qualify with exception to, MAYBE, NiP, G2... and what? (The remaining of the top8 is garbage tho).

That's online. Na'Vi, SK and VP always sucked online, that's almost legendary at this point. When it comes to LAN games those teams show their worth.
2016-09-27 17:55
tell me more about navi sucking online when guardian is playing much worse on majors
2016-09-27 17:55
while guardian did bad on most majors, imagine if he showed up. because when its needed, even edward makes his plays. and with s1mple having godlike runs on majors (for the most part) we can comfortably say NaVi can take the major if guardian comes up lol
2016-09-27 18:34
everytime there is important game, s1mple drops his balls
2016-09-27 18:35
that's why he got into a major final and a semi final both times he played majors, right?
2016-09-27 19:49
SK isn't top 5 anymore.
2016-09-27 18:48
Even bigger is when you have 10k or more seats in the venue and crowd is acting like 100 years old. No hype , no yells , nothing. Thats far worse than 5k seats with super hyped crowd.

i think thats not the case, it will be twitch = tbs

I really hope so. This is obviously separate from what ELEAGUE is currently providing, so it'd be really cool for them to have this broadcasted on their network.

You should try not to think only about yourself, Muricans also have problems watching European tournaments + GS at Colombus wasn't that bad. Cologne is another story tho :/
2016-09-27 18:35
How do you think Westerns feel when majors are held in Cologne or other locations in the East? And yet we never bitch about the time of the matches.. Hmm..

That's funny because the US has one of the highest percentages of cs:go players in the world, so your argument is invalid. But what does that even have to do with "adapting" lmao, that literally doesn't make sense in the context of the argument.

2016-09-27 19:59
The competition and games might have been what you remember being good at DH events, but that would be about it. Their production is sub-par at best and they treat their talent team like shit and have them work crazy-long days. Also, the way they handle seating and the inability to freely leave and come back to the event center is absolutely ridiculous.

Yeah, cause only sweden exists in the world... For me it will be perfect, the games will be held at 03:00~11:00 PM in GMT -3! And we have a TV station wich is part of Turner group, so we will have TV broadcast for the finals too, and talented by Octávio Neto! Much game! Such hype! Wow

Thats not my point, but when its 04:00 AM in Sweden/EU its 10 PM in USA, they could put the final at 7/8 PM US time (01/02 AM). So people all over the world can watch it. The TV broadcast is just bullshit.
2016-09-27 19:09
how do you know it will be 10pm usa? when did it state that? you cant just assume because thts the way eleague was played

Sweden 4Sweeeden 
1. Because the final/the games will be broadcasted on TV, and in some countries (By law) you cant show "violent" stuff like CSGO on TV at, lets say 4-7 PM etc. So yes, they need to put the final/the games at a late time (10 PM US time = 04 AM Swedish time)

24 would be nice, use rules like the euros?
2016-09-27 17:54
What about 8 through as Legends (like now), and 24 in through qualifiers? 32 breaks down a lot easier in B03's ... 32>16>8 = 2 matches to get into the playoffs (like already today, except in one B03's instead of 2 B01's). At that point it's no different than today. Playoffs are already B03's. The way I look at it is this: Teams don't want to spend the time and effort (especially if they're not an elite team), on arranging tournaments, and flights, and visa's, and meals, etc. and be out in one 16-round match. Because of this, they've changed things up at most tournaments so that they get a second map to try to keep going. Well, with my idea, a team still gets 2 maps, but potentially 3 (if they can take a map). It also simplifies brackets because in B03's you move on if you win the B03 and go home if you don't... so 32 > 16 > 8 > 4 > 2 (Final)

Interesting thought, but i doubt it. The while point of a major is to make the tournment the most compettitive tournments of the year. The latter end of the teams will be tier 3. Dont know if valve wants that

Nope but you're complaining about how Europe is the majority, and I'm not saying it's going to be a good major, it's going to be garbage, what I'm saying is to not be a whiny bitch about a major being late for you when 8/10 majors have been at good times for you "Oh but we're the majority" yeah but eleague clearly had the money

Are you seriously dumb? It's way easier for you to watch a tourney that is hosted in Europe than the other way around. If a match is at 10 PM EU time, you'll see it at around 3-4 PM. 10 PM in NA is around 3-4 AM EU time. Who the fuck is up this late, especially during working days...? Valve chose ELEAGUE because they want to appear on TV. No more, no less. They have no other reason to let an org that hasn't even been around E-sports for a year host a freaking major. The venue is small as fuck, a clear indication that, yet again, they don't give a shit what happens over there, or on stream. I also thought that the ELEAGUE finals were poorly organized but the production quality is pretty good, and definitely good enough to make it entertaining to watch on TV. MLG should be the logical choice for NA majors but they don't offer TV audience.
2016-09-27 22:10
lol 3-4 pm? They're always on early in the morning when the majors are in the EU

Play-offs happen during the afternoon and the final is at night. If the final is at night in the US it will be at around 3-4 am EU time. Having to stay up this late Sunday night obviously sucks.

5000 seats? A joke to cologne or MLG
2016-09-27 17:36
how many cologne and mlg then had ?
2016-09-28 16:54
As far as I remember MLG had arround 11.000 seats (and sold them all) while ESL One Cologne was sold out with 14.000 seats. (The Lanxess-Arena for ESL One Cologne can hold up to 20k, but ESL never wanted to use more then 14.000 seats (or were afraid of not selling out).
2016-09-28 16:57
Isn't 5000 enough ? If they put 3x higher tickey prizes, then they will get even more money than with 14 000seats full sold..
2016-09-28 16:58
Yeah but how does it even sound? Hey, we are the biggest tournament of the year and we got... well 5.000 people? While LoL, Dota or CS:GO pull over 10k or even 20k? Its not even about the money, every arena is made in a way, that you can earn money if it is sold out with regular prizes. And ez for the finish master DJ BileDani. It just looks lackluster, hey, we are on TV with the biggest CS:GO match in their calendar, and well, 5000 guys watching. Dont go to fucking NBC Sports Networks, where 70.000 people are watching an NFL playoff game!
2016-09-28 17:01
What Dota2 tournament got over 20 000 viewers watching on LAN area ?
2016-09-28 17:02
I know that LoL pulled over 20k for the worlds. I think Dota II Ti 4-6 are close to 20k? I mean, these numbers are still nothing to the ProLeague finals of 2005 but well, big live audience is something you might want to have for your biggest product.
2016-09-28 17:04
ProLeague finals of 2005 What event and which game you are talking about ?
2016-09-28 17:50

Yes, I thought the same. I guess they only used images of teams that played in ELEAGUE Season 1, but I honestly find that pretty shitty, this is a MAJOR, and it should have a storyline... but well, I guess it's just a promotional video.

"The event's venue will be the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, which has a capacity of less than 5,000 seats, the lowest amount since DreamHack Winter 2014.

Unfortunately I think that the USA kinda sucks in regards to visas for esports athletes in comparison to Europe.

Looks a bit disrespectful towards MLG since they did a good job and had to work some time in order to get their chance to host a major but welp we don't know the negotiations behind the screen. The 5k capacity sucks a bit, but it should be enough to get a great atmosphere. I just hope that doesn't skyrocket the prices

This seeding is such a joke. Botsent, botside tactics, Botbit & Botquid str8 into the major. I would put at least 3 challengers over these teams (with small questionmark hanging above GODSENT)any day and 2-3 more are roughly same level or still better. This perfectly shows how bad system is this, at least 2 much better teams than flipside or gambit(liquid) wont be in the major for sure. #fuc-logic Ye and major should def be in Europe OR in rising Asia, USA is misstep.

no you haven't, i dont believe you one bit mate. It obviously must have been censored for swedish viewership or you hadnt seen enough.

some really big mistakes here...... "Only the last three days, supposedly reserved for playoffs, will be open to the public, with tickets already being sold." lmao this is a joke people don't just want to watch the finals. there are other teams that people follow and want to go and watch in person. "The event's venue will be the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, which has a capacity of less than 5,000 seats, the lowest amount since DreamHack Winter 2014." already set up to be one of the worst majors just because of this. there wont be an atmosphere there. the last majors have been getting better and better each major with big crowds. valve has basically just gone and said fuck csgo we don't want you to have nice things. ELEAGUE could have at least hired a bigger venue ffs. thanks for ruining a major before it even starts.

+1 on the venue. plus it's in Murica, so the atmosphere will be dull and toe-curling at best.

Hyped for the announcement, but less than 5,000 seats? That's a bit disappointing for a $1,000,000 major ;/

TV will broken with CSGO... sad end! This was the worst year for CSGO with Eleague + ECS. These two events are broken with regularity of good matches and Lan Finals like Dreamhack/Faceit/Cevo/Gfinity and other events! Almost all weekend happened a final lan... PS:. Its my opinion... and yeah... my english is bad!
2016-09-28 08:43
You have right.....your english is really bad :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Well bollocks... ESL and DreamHack are the biggest E-sports organisations on the planet, but a one-off season of ELEAGUE is successful and they getto host the major? I hope it's up to it's strictest standards and of ESL/DH quality. I really enjoyed ELEAGUE Season 1's production value, so it shouldn't be a problem. Please, do not be like MLG when they hosted it. Yam's video in particular proves that production quality isn't everything if you cannot maintain basic standard rules. Best of luck... I'm not convinced, but we shall see the outcome.

+1 ... Feel bad for Dignitas :| .. I support NIP and hoped they would've secured their spot but they pretty much fucked themselves when they failed to beat flipside in the elimination match. Sucks for them :|
