Yeah ofc, invite tylul to the main event and let onlinesports (the "onliners" which lost to Space Shitters ONLINE ) and NV (maybe the most inconsistent team rn) play in the second round in the qualifier. Shit event gg.

SpaceS is good but they are not consistent enough to be called a good team. We can see them winning 2-0 against mouz but going 1-1 against Fragsters. Maybe in a couple of months they will prove themselves. Who knows ?
2017-09-24 18:37
That's regional invitational event. All regions got an own invites, same as was last in CIS (HR, Flipside qualified, Na'Vi got invite). Next if it's will be in USA will have more slots for NA teams, than for europe or ASIA... just an kind of tournament you know? We don't need to host top16 events each weekend :)
2017-09-24 18:28
My point is there should not be a "second round" in the qualifiers.Its unnecessary. And regions should not invite their teams directly if they are not worthy. I can see even HR or Dignitas (which are in the first round of the quals) can beat Tyloo (in the main event). The teams should prove themselves that they deserve a slot in the main event.
2017-09-24 18:35
And we will see only 16 teams each weekend. And after 2 months, you will say cs:go died.
2017-09-24 18:35
Im sorry I was being rude but there are good teams that deserve a spot in the main event.That is unfair that there is a "second round" in the quals.
2017-09-24 18:39
Yeah, maybe... but we have a ton's of qualifiers going right now. Even this 4 teams invited to 2nd part, cannot schedule more than 3 bo3 to play for a month. They are travelling week after week, in free time playing EPL and ECS + some other quals. Or we are missing part of good teams, and not organizing 2 stage qualifiers, or other option is to have proved teams in 2nd stage and some of them playing 2 bo3's more to qualify.
