Valve revamps Major stage names to include qualifier; all 24 teams to have stickers

Valve has announced an overhaul of the Major stage names to include the qualifying phase.

ELEAGUE Major: Boston will kick off on January 12 with "The New Challengers" stage, previously known as the Major Qualifier, which will feature the eight teams determined by the Minors and the bottom eight finishers from PGL Major Krakow.

The top eight teams from this stage will progress to "The New Legends stage", previously known as the group stage, in which they will join the top eight finishers from the Krakow Major.

Both the New Challengers and the New Legends stages will be held at the ELEAGUE Arena, in Atlanta. The Major will culminate with "The New Champions" stage, formerly called the playoffs, at the Agganis Arena, in Boston, featuring the top eight teams from the previous stage, who will earn Legends status.

ELEAGUE Major Boston will feature 24 teams

Under this new system, the Major is expanded from 16 to 24 teams as the qualifiers and the Major itself are no longer independent from one another. According to a tweet from ELEAGUE General Manager and Vice President Christina Alejandre, all 24 teams attending the event will have team stickers and player signatures featured in-game.

The tournament format for the Major remains unannounced. For PGL Major Krakow, both the qualifier and the group stage featured a best-of-one Swiss stage, with the playoffs consisting of a best-of-three, single-elimination bracket.

Below you can find the schedule for ELEAGUE Major: Boston:

  • The New Challengers stage - January 12-15
  • The New Legends stage - January 19-22
  • The New Champions stage - January 26-28

The following 24 teams will compete at the Major:

Minor Champions and Runners-up
Australia Renegades China TYLOO
Turkey Space Soldiers France Envy
Kazakhstan AVANGAR Russia Quantum Bellator Fire
United States Liquid United States Misfits
Current Challengers
United States Cloud9 Russia FlipSid3
Europe mousesports Germany Sprout
France G2 Europe FaZe
Ukraine Natus Vincere Russia Vega Squadron
Current Legends
Kazakhstan Gambit Brazil 100 Thieves
Denmark North Germany BIG
Denmark Astralis Poland Virtus.pro
Brazil SK Sweden fnatic

TBS to air Major Feature Series

Meanwhile, ELEAGUE has announced that it will create a five-part docuseries about the Major, premiering February 9. The series, which will air on Fridays on TBS, will allow viewers to "get to know superstar players and relative unknowns from the bootcamp preparation through the grand final."

Tickets to ELEAGUE Major Boston are available at eleague.com/major. For the first time in the history of the Majors, attendees will be eligible to receive ingame drops by linking their Steam accounts with the RFID badges provided with tickets.

*UPDATE* ELEAGUE General Manager and Vice President Christina Alejandre has since confirmed that all 24 teams attending the Major will have stickers and player signatures featured in the game.

I dont care that much about the sticker tbh except for the mouz ones. Not worried since theyll 100% make it through qualifier. I also would like to see how the Sprout ones look when they make it through. But the Asia qualifiers as an example are broken as hell. You always have either Renegades or Tyloo never someone else. Valve should do something about that. And also fix minors. Make them offline so no one is going to cheat. And dont let CEVO host the minor.. Volvo, pls fix

2017-12-14 01:51
Here's the most likely 8 C9 NaVi G2 Faze Envy F3 Liquid Renegades With I'd say a 25% chance that either Mouse or Sprout make it in over F3

F3? Are you kidding me? RENEGADES? Ok youre just retarded. F3 will 100 % not make it wothout Electronic and Renegades... are you serious? Maybe thelly get to groups but they will either be 0-3 or theyll get one map off of one team. I also dont think Envyus will make it. Look at recent results of Mouz vs Envy. When you look at their recent matches, youll see that they mostly only win against Tier 4/3 Teams and lose against Tier 2/1 Teams. And I also remember Mykonos, where.. i think.. wait.. mouz won against liquid. And dont come with dumb excuses.. And renegades.. (I have only looked at their last 6 games) have only won one map against Luminosity. So youre saying a Tier 3 Team, that cant even win against other Tier 3 teams will make it over Mousesports? Come on bro.. And i dont even bother checking F3 stats. They are a MDL Team. Only playing against like tier 5 maybe 4 You dont know how strong Mousesports is. You still probably think: oh yea nikos gone, now we suck.
2017-12-14 06:11
Mouz is better than c9 liquid rng and nv you delusional muritard
2017-12-14 12:46
Go back to bed, child. C9 is in really good form right now. Will definitely crush mousesports. If nifty plays well, even rng can beat mouz. Envy has 3 really good aimers scream rpk and xms, and a world class igl/lurk. You can bet your ass they will prepare to the fullest.

2017-12-14 17:41

really, thinking about this change, im kinda happy and i also think its bad. Pro: It gives Players the chance of getting their own sticker without really making it to groups. Also a lot of fans from teams that arent good enough to make it to groups, can finally have stickers aswell.. Also sticker will be cheaper which isnt a big deal for me, but its nice to have it cheaper. Cons: Its smart from valve to do that to earn money. But the main problem is in some way they didnt deserve it. In the last majors, teams had to get to groups, which ofocurse isnt easy, to earn these stickers. its kind of an accomplishment and since you "only" have to qualify for the qualifier, it imo doesnt feel like an accomplishment for your skills, since its not as hard as before. All in all, i think its more good than bad. Have a nice night!
2017-12-13 19:33
I would agree with you if the cis major was competetive enough. All the good teams from cis are already in the major. Qbf and avangar have no right to have stickers. Stickers are the most iconic one of the most important figures in the community. Only the best should have it. I have been waiting for a turkish teams stickers for more then 2 years now but man. Not like this. I dont even think i ll buy them. Have nice one.

Don't like the idea that you can win and come 2nd at some shitty asian and cis qualifiers and qualify for the major already. Really hope the stickers and signatures are only for the top 16

it's not about optic being better than those team it's how teams fight to get major spot.
2017-12-13 19:08
what do you expect from valve all the market key,stickers, taxes is not enough money, like always money > competitive aspect for valve. Let's see if they put cash prize at 2M$ or more since they will get again shitload of money from fans.
2017-12-13 19:06
The reason the garbage CIS teams get in the major qualifier is cause all the good CIS teams are already in the major, not their fault the good NA teams can't win themselves into the major qualifier or group stages.

This is another case of changing the system (i.e., its wording) as little as possible, but still creating a significant (but not so significant) change in outcomes. Valve are pretty good at that.

i'm talking about how teams were fighting to get a major spot which is basically useless now, instead you will have t4 teams fighting hard to get to the qualifier and get stickers money which is the only interest for those teams

they would still want to go far in the major and get more money everyone already tries super hard to qualify i don't think anything will change and the lesser teams will be rewarded for their hard work

the hard work is to get sticker money

Wait, let me get this straight, teams that are in the major qualifier are now automatically in the major?
2017-12-13 18:11
The major qualifier is now part of the major itself. It appears to just be a slight change in semantics until more information is released. I assume, and hope anyway, that includes in-game GOTV broadcasting of the major qualifier as well.
2017-12-13 18:14
I hope that it means more drops
2017-12-13 18:21

kinda, but they will play first the "new challengers phase" wich is basically the major qualifier XD, basically all thats changed is now Valve might include their stickers also in the game and make the pickem challenger feature them aswell. Valve and sticker money always goes well.
2017-12-13 18:16
yes, but its life fases , to go aiganst legends u have to deafeat chalenger teams etc... till we got 16 teams only

2017-12-13 18:11
Interesting, I think this is a great change tbh, this will give a chance to teams stuck at main qualifier because some favourite teams didnt qualify for playoffs last Major. Some retarded people in upper comments WTF THEY ONLY CHANGED NAMES IDIOT NOOB TEAM NO NEW MAJOR FORMAT. Well, learn to read. Looking forward to see how is the format going to be. Edit: the format is going to be crap I feel x))

2017-12-13 18:15

I believe that we can reach out SS stickers no matter what? Confused af
2017-12-13 18:23
I think they just changed the names and made sticker for all the teams. Because they “added” the qualifier to the major but really they are still at separate points and the same format. Someone correct me if I’m wrong
2017-12-13 18:24
youre right m8 i see some tweets about that and as i understand youre right but there is 1 thing who'll buy chinese guys stickers xD
2017-12-13 18:30
Cninese CSers will buy it definitely. Though we know TYLOO sucks now, but it is one of the few CN teams willing to change the situation. Tyloo SOMEBODY blogged that he didnt deserve that, and at least we can see their attitude, that’s enough for the purchase.
2017-12-14 07:21
But the act decreases the value of stickers. CSGO dead game

2017-12-13 18:23
So can someone explain me, are we getting 24 team stickers anyway ?

I think it’s just a name change and all these teams get stickers but the format stays the same. Not sure someone correct me if I’m wrong

Intelligent plan from valve. They know that due to random bo1's good teams also get eliminated from quals. So to grab cash from their fans, they are introducing this. No one knows better than valve on how to milk stuff from fans.
2017-12-13 18:31
While I agree, I still want Misfits and Renegades stickers. I know this seems money-grabby but at the same time from a fans perspective, they can support the teams they love and get some cool in-game item easier, especially if it isn't the best team in the world and all.
2017-12-13 20:43
Now that we know about the stickers this is significant for the teams. Prolly still doesn't mean much for viewers except a slight production quality bump for first stage.

2017-12-13 18:50
EXACTLY.
2017-12-13 19:45
I wouldn't worry about it, the community market is savage and if no one buys the stickers the value goes down. If an AVANGAR sticker isn't your thing or the thing of the majority of the cs community than its gonna show really fast. I think it puts a greater sense of accomplishment to teams who have ground through qualifier after qualifier and then they lose out to actually make it to the major, like hey at least you got your org some sticker cash.

not talking about economic side of it. Before that, attending a major does have a meaning and that was need hardwork and training for months. SS was so close to achieve it but now, they just seem like they got it for free without an effort
2017-12-13 22:12
I mean the prestige of getting to the major doesn't solely ride on stickers and it's still up in the air as to qualifier sticker capsules including foils/holos further cementing the ladder if it turns out we just have blue versions. If they do have foils/holos I will stand right by ya and say that ruins the hierarchy. And besides, it takes a long road to get to the qualies. We saw that with Penta in the last major.

Can someone tell me how are we going to make Picks at 2018 boston pickem challenge????
2017-12-13 19:08
they will probably have it for the main event only. Or maybe pick the teams who you think will qualify to the playoffs

I hope it will be easier to make correct picks. Like before 2016. Because in 2017 it was pain in the *** to make correct picks. Game was forcing us to make picks from quarter final directly to the finals.
2017-12-13 19:16
yup they copied the dota battle pass system,where you have to predict whole thing beforehand... It was better before,daily picks...
2017-12-14 11:46

2017-12-13 19:18
Anyone else notice the legends teams only have 2 that really should be there based on recent form? CSGO's landscape has changed so much since the last major it's weird to see some of them there.
2017-12-13 19:21
Its crazy, but if they cant live up to their old form it will show fast. New legends, New CS. Keep things fresh.
2017-12-13 20:54
True.
2017-12-13 21:03
THIS WAS THE MAJOR I WAS CONFIDENT FLIPSIDE WILL FINALLY NOT QUALIFY, BUT THEY ARE IN THE MAJOR WITH THEY WEAKEST LINEUP THEY HAD SO FAR, SOMEHOW FLIPSIDE MAKE YET ANOTHER MAJOR NICE XD

Lul. Gambit, B(U)G, Virtus.throw, North as legends already in major. This really tells we need different formt to pick teams that go to major. Maybe North is cain of "ok" but those three teams DONT deserve to be on major based on half year result after last one (that one final SK vs VP i personaly dont count - was riggered AF)

Exactly... Major is still with 16 teams which has group stage and then quarterfinals, semis, and grand finale... They just counted "Qualifier" as a part of the Major.
2017-12-13 19:41
but for me thats nice, qualifier is always very fun.

2017-12-13 19:49
I was wondering how that would work what with the qualifier ending right before the event I like this idea of a bigger event as well
2017-12-13 19:51
The titles of the sections sound a bit like LOL but I guess if we only have two majors a year it’s time to make them bigger, even if they’re not harder to win yet.
2017-12-13 19:52
Pretty cool that the other 8 teams also get stickers now. I really can't wait for the 100T stickers to come out :D
2017-12-13 19:53
FINALLY SOME XANTARES STICKERS!!! Fandom aside, it's a little questionable the decision overall, in my opinion... but a good step forward monetarily I suppose.
2017-12-13 19:55

24 teams, 120 players, yet no NiP sticker to be found hahaha also space soldiers in a "Major" hahaha jokes aside, apart from the money milking aspect, I think its a good thing, it will make more fans involved and also make reaching a major more feasible and lucrative for non top10 teams, i think they deserve that. Valve wants to make money, teams want to make money, i dont see the problem yet, it makes perfect sense. so far the biggest complaints seems to be some people crying about the exclusivity or prestige of having a sticker has decreased abit, but find it hard to believe thats seriously a big issue, and thats it thats the main argument

Sounds ridiculous, but plz Mister Gaben try to IMPROVE THE VAC SYSTEM after milking EZ money from the fans. Hackers is destroying the whole game cuz the credit matching system revealed to be a joke. Slight change of the attributive code of one certain cheat can make it unable to be banned again. :-( Or the game will be dead sooner.

I won't be surprised if the format is still going to be Swiss System: The 8 teams from the Minors + The 8 teams from 8-16 from Krakow, to form the 1st stage of the tournament; And the top 8 teams from "The New Challengers" go to play against the Legends of the previous major. And after another Swiss System group, we go to the playoffs. P.S seriously the reason Valve would revamp the stages is to get more money of the fanboys of the lesser teams e.g SpaceS and Tyloo (for Chinese players, wasn't CS:GO released there not long ago?) + trash teams like Avangar and QBF are getting easy money, for qualifying from the "very hard and stacked" CIS Minor, hope they don't distribute the prize money down to the 24 teams, keep it in the 16.
