PGL Major quarter-final matches drawn

PGL has revealed the match-ups for the quarter-finals, which will start on Friday after an off-day.

The draw has thrown up a titanic battle between SK and Astralis, the only two sides in our top 5 still in contention. The two teams already faced each other in the second round of the Swiss stage, with the Brazilians running out 16-8 victors.

Gambit, who secured the first playoff spot, have been paired with fnatic, while BIG, the other 3-0 team, will take on ImmortalsFinally, Virtus.pro, who will certainly have the backing of the crowd at the TAURON Arena, will face North.

SK will take on Astralis in the quarter-finals

+1 Can somebody explain how does this happening? Who draws these matches? One plus is I will be in the Arena on Saturday and VP will play, fans will go wild.
2017-07-20 07:12
Both 3-0 teams are draw vs 3-2 teams. It remains 1 3-2 team it is draw vs a 3-1 team. Remain 2 3-1 team facing each other. So BIG & Gambit draw vs VP IMT and fnatic. Then VP left draw vs Astralis, SK and North Then Astralis SK left.

Your answer is right but you do see the problem in here, right? SK & Astralis went 3-1 and then drew each other. I mean how in the heaven sakes is this draw justified?
2017-07-21 03:38
Because 3-1 both. They were supposed to end in 3-0. Their fault.

The post was updated, but was the most probable answer...
2017-07-20 01:06
Higher seed determined by coin toss, I assume cuz they both had 3-1 scores in groups
2017-07-20 00:46
Not sure if you (and all comments to your post except #201) are a troll or just stupid -.- - Teams with the best record (3-0) were matched with teams with the worst record (3-2). - Remaining team with the worst record was matched with the one team from the 3-1 basket. - Remaining teams from the 3-1 basket had to be matched against each other. Since only team's record is important and not who they played against, in the last matchup the team choosing who starts the veto was determined by a coin toss.
2017-07-20 01:34
Yes, 3-0 vs 3-2 3-1 vs 3-1 3-0 vs 3-2 3-1 vs 3-2 That Systeme is fair
2017-07-20 04:58

Australia JoshHartSZN 
Its like 1st seed against 8th seed. Its not meant to be fair.
2017-07-20 05:57
How is ot not fair. In every sports where are playoffs is like this always. Look at NBA for example.
2017-07-20 07:09
#334
 | 
Australia JoshHartSZN 
??? The NBA playoffs aren't meant to be fair lol... thats why they pit 1st seed against 8th. The best teams are given easier opponents on purpose.
2017-07-20 07:11
It is not fair system? And what is fair from your perspective, explain me
2017-07-20 07:17

Australia JoshHartSZN 
When i say not fair i don't mean bad, i think its a good system. It isn't meant to be fair, it's meant to reward the best teams for good regular season performance. The 'fairest' system would be to pit the teams with the most similar wins against eachother, like 1 seed vs 2 seed and so on, but fair doesn't always mean good.
2017-07-20 07:19
LOL bro, sorry to say that but you damn know nothing about a sport. This system is made just to get the best teams in Finals. Its not my problem that Astralis get 3-1 and Sk too. If everyone are saying they are the best 2 teams, they should easly get 3-0 and then they wouldnt meet until the Final. Its 100% fair system.

Im not even against the system lol i think its pretty good. But you stay reaching
2017-07-20 10:25
well, I definetly cant agree with your system and the reason is pretty obivous, I am kinda surprised, cuz when you are talking about fairness than your example is the worst one. From your system the second best or the best team would go home but eight or seventh best one would go further. Doesnt sound fair much tho :)

Australia JoshHartSZN 
You're assuming i think my system is the right way to do it, which i don't. Im totally fine with the 1st vs 8th system.
2017-07-21 13:50
So it would be fair for the second best team to compete against the best in the quarter and giving the fifth best the best chance to advance to the gf? I don't think so
2017-07-21 14:57
#409
 | 
Australia JoshHartSZN 
It would present the fairest matchups, yes. Fair doesn't always mean good.
2017-07-21 15:03
yes and thats why i think astralis should get VP as they were 1st to get 3-1 or may be North as they both didnt played in groups but pitting it against SK ? it clearly shows it is rigged towards VP as they can at least beat North nd will get easy opponent in semi i.e., Big/Immortals winner gg wp PGL

Astralis is not the higher seed. They had a coin toss to decide who was going to pick on that match up. Read it up bud. "in the last matchup the team choosing who starts the veto was determined by a coin toss."

I think BIG doesn't win a match B03, im sorry.
2017-07-20 00:40
I think so.. only maps big will permaban is Mirage and Nuke. Dont know why you think they have a shallow mappool, they dont.
2017-07-20 00:43
They've a Cache and strong Train, without telling Inferno. Dont forget that Immortals' Inferno is strong too, it has gained from Fnatic and SK on this map. It will be a cool game to see, but I think nervousness will disrupt BIG.
2017-07-20 00:45
well all of BIGs players (except Keev) have played in BIG Events. Imo ist gonna be a close game.
2017-07-20 00:56
Don't underestimate the energy of a major They never had in a It wouldn't be supreme if they stayed in choke.
2017-07-20 00:58

Ok, let's see them play.
2017-07-20 01:01
yep, gonna be a good match.
2017-07-20 01:02
They played all three games to qual on inferno, so who knows honestly
2017-07-20 00:48
Why would they change the map when they are winning it?
2017-07-20 00:49
Because all the other team has to do is ban it xD
2017-07-20 00:49
Yes but they didnt xD But honestly, BIG going Legend is more then expected everything else is just the cherry on the cake. But i think BIG IMT will be a really good and exiting match.
2017-07-20 00:51
Oh i think it could be better than sk vs ast, i bet that match goes 2-0 sk But BIG vs IMT they have same map pool so it will be a great series

I dont know if you are retarded, but last time BIG and IMT played against was on Cache and BIG won easily. LUL btw: inferno is a good map for imt and Mirage isnt, so they should ban first Mirage =D

You´re dumb poor German. IMT will ban Inferno, mark my words. Cache is a good map too for IMT. They can defeat BIG in this map. They never won´t ban Mirage against BIG, I´m sure about this. The problem of BIG will be the other maps beside Cache, cuz Inferno will be banned. I think it´ll be 2-1 for IMT. Sorry for U.

Gambit SK BIG can really win vs Immortals tbh but we didnt see other map than inferno from them so idk how they play on other maps but their strats are pretty good, aim too so they can really win with immortals. Vp will win bo3 with north of course

IMT will ban Inferno for sure. They don´t need ban Nuke, which is BIG´s permaban, for example. I think cache is a good map for BIG, but for IMT too. So, I think this matchup is 50-50. Maybe 55-45 for IMT cuz they have more experience in scenario.
2017-07-20 00:50
Wow, is so strange see someone saying that Immortals have more experience than someone, btw fnatic 1x2 Gambit Sk 2x1 Astralis Imt 2x0 Big (unless they don't ban inferno, and then maybe immortals lose, cause if they lose one map they will choke, i knew then, unless kng do something but he looks like be tipe of person that choke) VP 2X0 North

Sk vs astralis will decide the winner anyway, they might as well just settle it asap. North vs vp will be nice to see, revenge history always got potential. Gambit vs fnatic is already a classic in majors, hopefuly this time flusha gets to call. Immt vs big doesnt bring me any hype, I believe big can make it, but If the awps are on point only a strong tabsen will be able to win the game

1/4 -Fnatic -SK -IMT -VP 1/2 -SK -VP Final SK i think but i believe VP can do it
2017-07-20 02:11
Decent chance big gets to the semis lmao
2017-07-20 02:49
SK vs VP final would be amazing just imagine SK winning it in Poland :O would be sick if SK lost then Astralis will win this shit

>astralis >sk gaming >quarterfinals n1
2017-07-20 02:59
It is basically tier 100 teams except for whoever wins sk astralis. the playoffs have the same overall talent as the major qualifier had. >Good major >PGL Krakow 2017 Pick one #RUNBIG I called them getting knocked out in the semis right when the major started in a different thread.....might actually happen.

Luled at 80% of people saying Gambit > fnatic, are you blind?

This is probably being the worst major ever. So rigged for vp
2017-07-20 03:36
The fact that arguably the best two teams have to play each other in the quarter finals and on top of that the two worst teams get to play each other, so one advances to the semis guaranteed, just goes to show how BS this is.

good luck VP!!
2017-07-20 05:44
Holy fuck, what if BIG end up in the final
2017-07-20 05:58
gob b said that in secret they prepared more than surviving the group stage! this should be a warning for all other teams or ppl who think that they are not able to compete in BO3. I predict that they are even stronger in BO3! Gob b is 24/7 csgo since 6 months, he has a plan for everything. Teams with no coldzera are in trouble!

2017-07-20 06:30
BIG will win vs IMT! ppl who think that BIG has no map pool are pretty clueless about gob b! going to the playoff with only showing 1 map is part of the master plan. If the favela kids dont play the game of their life, they wont have a chance!

I think SK benefits a lot from other teams not being at their peak right now. The major might be decided right here

Are the semi-final matches randomized as well or will the winner of quarter 1 play against the winner of quarter 2...?
2017-07-20 10:22
Finally Astralis vs North in a final!

At least i tried
2017-07-22 22:40
The "best possible draw" for BIG (no disrespect). Now anything can happen! Bring it on boys..
2017-07-20 18:12
EEEEE GAMBIT <3
2017-07-20 19:27
Just saying, THIS DRAW is the fairest possible. You guys are crying, but SK lost 1 and Astralis did too. I mean it couldve been Astralis/SK/North vs VP but it turned out otherwise. Im very hopeful of a BIGvsVP semifinal and a VPvsAstralis final.
