ELEAGUE to host next Major, with playoffs in Boston

MIRAA
October 5th, 2017 20:00

ELEAGUE has announced that it will host the next Counter-Strike Major, which will culminate with a playoff stage held in Boston.

The 12th Major in the history of CS:GO will take place only in 2018, with the group stage running from January 19-22 at the ELEAGUE Arena, in Atlanta, while the playoffs will be held from January 26-28 at the Agganis Arena, a 7,200-seat arena located on the campus of Boston University.

The announcement confirms an earlier report by HLTV.org that the next Counter-Strike Major would only take place only next year, making 2017 the second year in a row with just two Valve-sponsored events. 

This will be the second time that Turner's ELEAGUE has been named the host for a Counter-Strike Major. The North American company also hosted the first Major of 2017, in Atlanta, which saw Astralis take home the grand prize of $500,000.

ELEAGUE will host the first Major of 2018

The total prize purse of $1 Million from the previous four Majors will be kept the same for ELEAGUE Major: Boston, which will continue to feature 16 teams, eight of whom determined by the Legend status earned at PGL Major Krakow.

Digital coverage of the Major will be available across Twitch, ELEAGUE.com and YouTube, with the event's organisers also promising a broadcasting experience via TBS. 

"We are looking forward to hosting our second ELEAGUE Major in back-to-back years and bringing a CS:GO championship to Boston for the first time," said Craig Barry, Chief Content Officer for Turner Sports.

"Following the record-setting engagement during last year’s ELEAGUE Major, we appreciate Valve’s ongoing trust in us and all of the continued support from the esports community."

ELEAGUE still lists Immortals as one of the eight teams with Legend status despite the fact that the Brazilian side currently have just two players from the squad that reached the final in Krakow on their active roster.

HLTV.org knows that the team's spot is currently under review and that Immortals have not yet submitted their roster for the Major. In case they cannot field at least 3/5 of the team that competed at PGL Major Krakow, Immortals will most likely have to fight for a spot at the Americas Minor via the qualifiers, similarly to what happened to Envy after losing three players to G2 before PGL Major Krakow, earlier this year.

Below you can find the teams who have earned Legend status from PGL Major Krakow:

Kazakhstan Gambit Brazil Immortals *
Denmark Astralis Poland Virtus.pro
Sweden fnatic Brazil SK
Germany BIG Denmark North

* Spot under review

The bottom eight teams from the previous Major will be invited to compete for a Challenger Spot at the Main Qualifier, which will be held from January 12-15 at the ELEAGUE Arena.

The invite list for the Main Qualifier looks as follows:

United States Cloud9 CIS FlipSid3
France G2 Ukraine Natus Vincere
Europe mousesports Germany Seed (ex-PENTA)
Europe FaZe Russia Vega Squadron

The road to the ELEAGUE Major Boston will begin with the online qualifiers for the Minors, kicking off on October 9 and hosted by CEVO in the CIS, North America, South America and Europe. Asia will be the only region without qualifiers as all the teams competing at the Minor will be determined by invites.

The first two Minors, for Asian and CIS teams, will be held this month already, from October 26-29, in Seoul and Bucharest, respectively. The Europe and the Americas Minors will run from November 2-5, in Bucharest and Toronto.

Additional information about the Boston Major, including format, will be released in the weeks leading up to the event. Ticket information will be provided during the live coverage of the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier playoffs, beginning next week. 

Below you can find all the dates for the ELEAGUE Major: Boston circuit:

  • October 26-29 - Asia Minor (Seoul)
  • October 26-29 - CIS Minor (Bucharest)
  • November 2-5 - Europe Minor (Bucharest)
  • November 2-5 - Americas Minor (Toronto)
  • January 12-15 - Main Qualifier (Atlanta)
  • January 19-22 - ELEAGUE Major Boston Group Stage (Atlanta)
  • January 26-28 - ELEAGUE Major Boston Playoffs (Boston)

I didn't say anything about NA legend team and you fking tell me that 2 BR teams are legends. Immortals is so trash right now and it doesn't even have all the players. And SK is slowly dying, tho you can't see it because you're a monkey from Brazil.

They always do... unlike EU tournaments which are held during the early hours for NA viewers. NA tournaments almost always happen during the evening hours for EU viewers.

Yeah well that is how timezones works really....
2017-10-07 11:47
I'm making a point that EU viewers complain about NA tournament time slots when there's absolutely nothing wrong with the times they're hosted at. Btw, EU tournaments could be held later in the day so NA viewers could watch them. No one has tried implementing this though.
2017-10-09 07:52
yeah, NA first ofc... we have to stay up all night to watch NA tournaments...

2017-10-05 20:15
The crowd was small but I mean the tournament went flawlessly. Can't say that for Krakow. Also Its at a university. Safe as can be. It's not near dangerous parts of Boston.

Every na tournament was shit??? Have you seen mlg colombus, esl new york 2016 or 2017 or eleage major. All of them were great events... Much better than cluj napoca or krakow. Also everyone also says na crowds are biased but ive never seen them boo winners like what happened to fnatic at cologne and how biased katowice crowd is. When lg beat liquid in front of home crowd in colombus everyone was respectful. And crowd even cheered at certain parts like coldzeras jumping double awp.

Meh, give it to someone who can host an epic stadium event and who have proven that they can do it like MLG (Columbus), ESL (Cologne) DH (Malmö), and not ELeague who could barely fill a small theater. That is not what a premier event like a major should be ffs.
2017-10-05 20:04
Eleague proved that you don't need a big ass stadium to have a great major. I think it's better not to take the direction dota and lol takes.

Thats like half the size of the arena that DH Malmö was hosted at, and that's in a city of 300,000 people. Way smaller than Boston.
2017-10-05 20:17
Well tbh I have heard esports scene is bigger in Sweden than here in the states. I live just south of Boston and tbh the 7200 arena will be probably be sufficient. Any bigger and it would probably seem empty. I am so hyped for this ps Faze I swear to GOD if you don't make it to this motherfucking major playoffs so i can see my boy olof heist the trophy shit is gonna hit the fan

7,200-seat arena so small
2017-10-05 20:05
Honestly it doesn't have to be that big. Eleague proved it last time. I don't want CS to copy where DotA and lol are trying to head in. Better to have a consistent number of attendees year after year than have a lack of audience some year. Shows better in the books which looks pretty for new investors.

Where do u think it's going to be hosted? I really want to see it but not sure where. Probably not Ricoh. Maybe an esports bar??
2017-10-06 17:40
Ricoh would be dope. Metro Convention Centre seems like an obvious choice, as Northern Arena was held there last year.

7500 people? Wtf is wrong with you eleague? We want more and more. There were 15 000 on pgl. So why the fuck couldnt you find place that can hold 30000 people. 7500 will be so quiet. The feeling that there are 29 999 people around you would be fucki g great. What is 7500. Sry for polish english

It'll most likely be televised in the US, meaning americans won't get off their fat asses on the couch to go to the arena and watch. :p
2017-10-05 20:21
The last major from Eleague was in Fox theathre with 4500 people, but it was awesome crowd anyway, just watch eleague atlanta major aftermovie, it not depends of number of people that much, of course that tournament in some stacked poland big arena can be better but its american organisation so maybe next time, but Eleague Major was still the best major in 2017, amazing experience

You have some right. But imagine how would it look with 30 000 people screaming around you. What would people saying always ,,Games are waste of time" think. There are 30 000 of ppl on football matches
2017-10-05 20:33
CS Tournament can also have 30 000 of people in some country with great PRO scene, CS and progaming have so big potential because some games are so great for spectating but media dont popularize and overhyping it like football for years so its smaller but its more entertaining in my opinion

ELEAGUE hight production, deserve a Major.
2017-10-05 20:26
Why the fuck can't eleague host the major in a proper big stadium? The tournament just won't reach the same heights when the crowd isn't that large, its just not going to be as cool as a tournament played in cologne or krakow
2017-10-05 20:26
likely because there are going to be alot of NA fans going to the ELEAGUE major and there arent going to be that much as EU fans. And its going to get pretty scattered if you ask me cause of how much traveling people have to do to get to the major
2017-10-05 20:31
I'm obviously suggesting that they should be able to find a bigger arena in NA, not that they should host it in Europe.
2017-10-05 20:32
Malmö 2017 crowd was horrific given the size of the crowd. Eleague Atlanta was amazing given the crowd size. I think smaller crowds are better and more hype.
2017-10-05 20:49
Could you elaborate on why Malmö was bad because of the crowd size? And whose to say that Eleague Atlanta wouldn't be even sicker with a bigger crowd? You can't compare these two tournaments since there's alot more factors than just the crowd that determines if the tournament was good or not, I'd say that eleague has alot better prodution quality than dreamhack. MLG columbus had a big crowd and I thought that big crowd added alot of hype to tournament, it just made all the big plays even more sick, just watch this and you'll get what i mean : youtube.com/watch?v=cjOVXdarUTs
2017-10-05 20:58
I'm saying that the crowd at Malmö was very quiet compared to FOX theater. Which had far less people and almost 10x the hype
2017-10-05 23:51
Yes, swedish crowds are alot less quiet than NA ones. Ofc the other one had more hype, its a major. I don't see any reason why the Eleague major wouldn't be even more hyped with a bigger crowd, why would a smaller crowd be more hype than a big one? It makes no sense...
2017-10-06 00:14
well hows this: even if they do use a bigger arena, its not like its going to automatically sell out like League of Legends events bro
2017-10-05 20:51
Look at past big tournaments and you'll realise how well they sell tickets, trust me, for it to be an empty arena is very unlikely considering how big csgo still is.
2017-10-05 21:02
sounds fair enough, csgo may be big but to me its unlikely to be able to sell out bigger arenas like LoL does unless we can get some changes that will help out in csgo's popularity
2017-10-05 21:10
I was at the 2016 cologne major which has a very big stadium with lots of seats, and at that time the stadium was pretty packed. I don't see any problem in selling tickets since the game has only grown since then and for the viewers I just think its best to get as big of an arena as possible because even if it doesn't sell out completely you will still have alot more people there than like at the Eleague major at fox theater where there was like 3k people.
2017-10-06 00:17
don't forget though that in Europe it is a lot easier for you guys to get to cologne than for most americans to come here to Boston. Honestly a big arena here for cs would not sell out, probably look empty af, and be super quiet. trust me this size is good for here bigger than fox theatre but smaller than the big arenas. Trust me fellow olof fan :)

Major in NA + Valve still going full failfish with the stupid rule of 8 legends (when 4 or even only the finalists legends would be enough, you don't really deserve to get to play another Major because you had top 8 at a tourney 6 months before, especially when reaching the playoffs only takes BO1 victories - 3 of them and i'm a big big lover of Swiss system) ... Step up your game Valve EDIT : and i didn't even mention the most retarded thing ever, a 4 days break between swiss system and playoffs. Only NA could come with such a break lul. 4 days (2 * 2) of break in the whole tourney would be fine for a 3 weeks tourney like swiss system first phase with every game on BO3, quarters played in BO3, semi finals in BO5 and final with on a BO7 (whole pool of maps, Kreygasm)

You don't have to play, you just have to watch. And I'm also normal but I can stay up. Don't even know where the problem is. Do you HAVE to go to bed weekends early? Why? Kids? Hm, no wife who can take care? Work on weekend? Well, that would be tough luck. I prefer NA because I'd be at work in the course of the day Mo-Fr. If a Major is being held in EU I miss almost the entire group stage. And with ELEAGUE in January split up on two weekends it is perfect. 1. It's weekend 2. It starts afternoon 3. You can stay up due to weekend 4. REAL NORMAL ppl who work NORMALLY from Mo-Fr don't miss the entire group stage. Furthermore, it is better to start in the afternoon than morning. Do you rly wanna weak up and get immediately in front of your PC to watch the games? Or is it better to solve things beforehand and sitting in the afternoon/evening chilled in front of your PC and watch some nice CS? ;) There are way more pro than cons.

Let's see here.. after converting the timezones and estimating the match start times based on previous ELeague matches.. it looks like the typical time slot for a Swede would be about 5pm to 1am (17:00-1:00). That's the middle of the night for you? Weird.

Guys, ELEAGUE did nothing wrong here. If you check the dates and you realize that both, the group stage and the playoffs, are being played on weekends, you don't even have to be concerned about timezones. Most ppl don't have to work on weekends.

I dont understand it miraa, i thought that spot was held by the players, not the org kNgv- (Legends spot holder) Lucas1 (Legends spot holder) Hen1 (Legends spot (holder) Remember like the case with Astralis before eleague 2016 hltv.org/news/18929/examining-astralis-m.. It would help if you could inform confused users like me, in a reply or put some more info in the news post, explaining how the Spot holders is not decided by players but the org. I also recall the lame and idiotic situation when full Luminosity roster went to SK and was by far the #1 contender at that time. But Eleague had a rule stating the org hold the spot, not the majority of players unlike other leagues and events. hltv.org/news/18219/sk-team-x-disqualifi.. Is this what has happened here? Eleague overthrow the classic valve rules or what is going on? Who's rule is this and how does it work is basically what I want to know. I guess sunce its a valve event, then Valve rules apply, not Elegue regarding "Legends" ruling I would love any information from you or anyone who know about this. Thank you
2017-10-05 21:46
There is no evidence to suggest that those three players will get together and play at the Major.

oh ok, that ends the problem before it begins. otherwise I could easily see another "drama" unfold with the beloved trio. however I expect they need to inform valve and the qualifier organisers at some point that they voluntarily vacate their "legend" spot.

The time schedule never sucks for EU viewers. You guys are spoiled tbh. Maybe about 10% of Eleague matches occur during the night (for Europeans), and most of those are during the weekend, so you guys would have no problem staying up a few extra hours.

Are you just stupid or do you have to much kebab in your brain? They have an auto-invite due to not reaching legend status at PGL Major Krakow. This was and will always be the same. The teams who don't reach legend status at the previous Major are automatically in the Main Qualifier. Get your shit together next time before you post dumb shit.

Europe Minor at the same time (2-5th November) than the ESWC (2nd and 3rd of November which was expected to be a 4 teams tourney with NV and LDLC). Rip ESWC and F**k that. Let's hope they can run the ESWC tourney with 16 or 24 teams from the subtop like last year (last year it was a 32 teams tourney but the prizepool was 75.000€, not 50.000€ like this year).
