ELEAGUE unveils 100 Thieves replacement process

MIRAA
January 15th, 2018 02:15

ELEAGUE has announced how 100 Thieves' replacement at the Boston Major will be found via the Main Qualifier.

As announced by ELEAGUE upon confirming that 100 Thieves would miss the Major due to "immigration issues", the Brazilian side's replacement will go to one of the three teams who finish the Swiss stage with a 2-3 record. 

Following the conclusion of the fifth Swiss round, ELEAGUE will rank these three teams according to the number of victories picked up by the opponents they faced throughout the qualifier.

ELEAGUE reveals ninth-place decider rules

In case of a tie in terms of the number of wins by opponent, ELEAGUE will turn to two tie-breaker rules: head-to-head result in the Swiss round (if possible) and ultimately a random draw. 

The teams ranked second and third by the strength of their opponents will then face each other in a best-of-one match, with the winner taking on the top-ranked team for the final spot in the Boston Major's New Legends Stage.

Sort of sucks that they weren't able to attend but hopefully next time, we will see them in form!

100T and IMT maybe made a deal about the salaries and money earned in the event. It already happened in some sports. The IMT players were not playing and were wasting IMTs money/time.

A real fan of csgo can respect the sheer talent of the that team. I was curious to see what they were capable of. An interesting wrench thrown into a rather unattractive major.

Why is the major unattractive? Sure, they would have been an attractive team to watch but still we have the best teams in the world competing. I’m also a fan of including the main qualifier so that more teams can present themselves on a big stage. I already enjoyed watching games like qbf vs flash because it was just fun to watch

1. SK are not at their full strength 2. Same goes for Astralis due to illness 3. Liquid, too.. 4. TyLoo couldn't make it, as the first team to cancel a major. 5. French teams are going into a shuffle after this. 6. FaZe is underwhelming with Olof. 7. North is "meh". 8. Virtus are a joke, even to their ridiculously low standard. 9. Now 100T, a fucking huge organisation (at least their backing and brand is), is not coming. Those were just a few highlights og why, this major is quite "meh."

Tyloo and liquid aren’t top tier teams anyway and Astralis have their Full roster. And you’re basically criticising every top team, so you’re complaining about the whole scene itself so this is not a problem from the major in particular. The only thing that makes the whole thing less attractive is sk without boltz and no 100t
2018-01-15 11:46
It’s better now that device will play imo. And Liquid(nitro) has looked amazing with Zeus. SK will still be fucking awesome no matter their 5th. And Vega showing out is promising. C9 and G2 looking good too. Tyloo leaving is irrelevant imo. so this Major is starting to shape up actually. 100T was just a team with a lot of potential to challenge SK/Faze. He was right ab north and vp though. Big is shit too and gambit might lose legends spot. So all in all should be an ok major
2018-01-15 17:22
Wtf did you just say lmao kid XD only liquid and thieves are valid points. Tyloo is irrelevant. Rest is just playing their game at major. Just stfu newfag

Are you guys stupid on purpose? There are so many fucking problems with the scene as of now. The Astralis line-up is playing with device, who is an unknown entity at this point in time. It's exciting to see how he and the team will fare, but it could be problematic for the world's number three. It's saddening to see teams not being able to participate, regardless of their origin and stature within the scene. Frankly, that is undebatable. Do you find it amusing to see teams who are destined to fail and eventually shuffle (again)? If so, you don't have a lot of love for the scene's competitiveness. Unlike last year's ELEAGUE Major, where the teams were somehow on all cylinders (except for maybe Virtus Pro prior to the tournament - or winter-break), this Major definitely boasts a lot of teams not on 100%. 100% is where every team should be (although, not entirely possible at all times). And to the other numb nut, Constikdw, that just makes it much, much more worrying that the entire scene is in shambles right now. Hopefully, this Major acts like a springboard to fix what's broken and to improve once again. If you cannot comeback with a proper reply, just don't. I don't like winning against "newfags" like you guys, it's a tad boring. It feels like cheating.

No, I definitely did not. If you had the ability to understand what you read, this conversation would go a lot smoother. Who I think will win? FaZe or SK. I don't see any other teams actually having a shot. That's one of the key elements to why I think the scene is in a bad, bad state. It's great to see the lesser teams actually having a chance against a better team, but it's on a worse premise. This last point is as objective and caring for the game as I can be: Gambit winning is Major and SK winning two the previous year has been more about the other teams not showing up than them being super impressive. I'm not taking anything away from some of the Brazilian's wins, but quite a handful of them represents the scene in shatters. It makes it more competitive, but once again, on a bad premise.

I'm not. Far from. I've been here since day one and I will be here until the end of the game. There's just sooo many flaws with the scene right now, and almost no-one understands it. If SK hadn't exchanged felps for boltz, almost everyone in the top15 needed changes.

I know there is flaws, no doubt. I just enjoy the CS I'm watching regardless. Here's a few of my viewpoints: While SK is not at their full strength, it's fine atm, because they would win everything. I don't like the thought of that - it might even be boring. Even though I do agree keeping Felps over Boltz is retarded. I agree it's sad that Liquid is with a stand-in and Astralis has Device that just came back after being sick, but that's how things go sometimes. It's not what tickles me. My biggest irritation lies with the constant visa issues, the systems needs to get fucking cleaned up and fixed. That T100 and TyLoo can't show up (the first being one I looked forward to, even though I think kNg is ruining the team PR wise already by being a hot-headed twat), is a shame. They would have done a lot to make this major more likeable (it's still good, but there's always the "but"...) If G2 goes beyond quarters I'm sure they won't switch any players no matter how high Envy squeak. But if not.. They might switch one for one or such. We'll see when that time comes though, won't think about it right now. North and VP has disappointed me this major, that's a fucking shame too. VP especially. At least North came close vs Astralis - VP looked like dead meat looong before match 3 was even played. And it's sad, because when they play correctly, it's next level CS. So yeah this major is being thrown under the bus by something so trivial as shitty visa issues that should have been fixed years ago, and shitty performances that simply makes fuck all sense for me. Buuuut... It's still good enough for me, is all I'm saying.

Don't take this in a negative way, as I need a lack of more precise words to describe this: Just because you're settling with status quo, it doesn't equal to the premise of a change not being needed. I'm not going to settle with a game I have spent soooo much time and energy on. I think it's unbearable that the game is in such a weak state. Sure, the underdogs have more to say, and I like an upset here and there, but the upper echelon of the scene has become a tad stagnant. The hunger doesn't seem there and they dont seem to be striving for pefection any longer. Take this with a grain of salt, of course. I'm not saying nothing's going great and there's nothing to be excited about, because there is. A lot of shit.
2018-01-23 09:40
Faze with Olof is the best Faze version so far. How is that "underwhelming"? He just destroyed Navi with 1.67 rating.

Overall he lives off of his reputation, getting him in the first place was a weird one. It doesn't make any sense to their playstyle. Just because something works decent, it doesn't mean it's the right option. He's underwhelming as duck, dude.
2018-01-22 14:22
A team performing better than ever before with the current lineup can't be considered underwhelming. It is just impossible! If you want to make fairytales about how they MIGHT be better with someone else, that is fine, but all the evidence we have is that this is the best version of Faze ever. Olof has has 1.09 rating or higher at all big events since joining Faze, excluding Malmo and Epicenter where the whole team was terrible. If that is underwhelming then every team in the world need to replace some player in your eyes.

You can literally slot any player into that exact position and they would succeed. I could do it. No doubts. I'm not saying I'm on Olof's level, not by any means, but I could fill that spot. There's tons of better players, in various positions and stylistic play that would fit them better. Valde, Rubino, AdreN, KRiMZ, RPK, amaNEk, NBK, shox and Xyp9x. Just to pick the first who springs to mind. I could probably name 10-15 more, if I had the time. Yes, they are contracted, at least most of them, but that won't hold the FaZe organization back. Completely different players, and they would all fit better stylistically in different ways. I can't speak on the aspect of personalities gelling, which is also a huge factor.
2018-01-23 09:46
Would you expand on some players? First explain why you think Olof is such a terrible fit, then explain how the team would be better adding for example Shox (lurker), Rubino (support) or AdreN (generally terrible since PGL).
2018-01-23 10:54
#229
 | 
Denmark kozality 
Sure, Shox would fit in, as he's more versatile, and would bring another dimension to their T-sides (although Olof is quite good at that particular side). Rubino would implement some key dynamic to their defense, as he is a brilliant utility player that understands the game from a more defensive standpoint. He would make them more stable, probably adding some calmness to the core. Admittedly, AdreN has been up and down, but bad is quite a statement - a false one, too. He was the leader of the team, yet played amazing at some points throughout the latter part of 2017. He's a rock and a half, and he has so much raw power and versatility.
2018-01-23 13:27
Ok, fair points for the most part, you did however forget to explain why you think Olof is such a bad fit.
2018-01-23 21:01
#234
 | 
Denmark kozality 
You're right, I did. My bad. I don't think he's a terrible fit. I think he lives off of his reputation as a former #1 player from a #1 team. He might get some kills, and he seems in better shape than 80% of 2016 and the most part of 2017. That's for sure. That's just not enough. One of FaZe's major problems is stability, and more of a "rock"-player, someone who's stable and great defensively would make more sense. I know the ones I mentioned don't carry the same legacy, aura and sponsoring possibilities as Olof, but for a very simple player-to-player basis their contribution to what FaZe actually needs, they're "superior". That isn't only about getting to the finish line, but how you do it. I mean, they might win a few tournaments, and olof might get great stats, but they don't have a lot to fall back to. This should highlight it greatly: Inserting pretty much any player into Olof's spot on the FaZe roster, and you still end up with a great team. Almost any player. That means Olof isn't the difference-maker. Removing NiKo og Rain, though, and you're in more kinds of trouble. If you put Rubino into the spot of Olof, it would bring more dynamics to their defensive-holds, plus he's actually quite a competent lurker-styled player on the T-side. He would bring more strenght and stability to the CT-side, thus winning more rounds and eventually tournaments - which should be the ultimate goal for any team of their caliber, right? Once again, I cannot comment on the personalities of the players. That's an entire different discussion, which none of us "outsiders" should speculate on without much information given.

The random draw is to define who will be the 1st of them so that the 2nd and 3rd will play and then who wins will play against that “random draw” 1st team So it ain’t unfair
2018-01-15 03:13
Fun Fact: They actually did that in some english football cups in the early 20th century. If the first match was a draw, they played a second one. If that ended up as a draw aswell, they flipped a coin to decide who wins.

I am not as sure as u are. You can be in favor of murderer in U.S. due to free speech, and you can't twit about it ? Besides I don't think fns pressed charges on kng, and even if he did, there's a lot of worse things on twitter that are not 'criminal' in the eyes of the law. I doubt he has any criminal situation, but maybe im wrong, I'll only believe this if I see anything to prove it tho
2018-01-15 02:35
I don't doubt about that, as in any countries anyone can murder anyone but the the US has always seen Americans as the first ones to take care of (even if bad people are in the country). If a foreign do that to an American he is 5 times more in trouble than an American in the same situation

2018-01-15 02:40
We all know how people are in some countries, and tell me the mentality in Brazil. I'm not saying you are a bad guy but go Rio, you are afraid of. Same goes with Americans, they will never go in the hood to get killed. The difference is that you can assume an American behavior by the way he looks in the first place, you'd recognize a gangster rather than a normal one, that's not the way you will in Brazil. I remember a Brazilian talking a bit about ex-immortals guys. Steel and boltz were the "educated" guys the other 3 guys were more crazy, with a different behavior like if you tell me something wrong I'm going to beat your ass.

Brazil gabyzinhu 
the CEO of immortals said something like that, but it doesn't matter because this is not the central question here, they are professional players and have been qualified for this event for more than 6 months, if the other 3 guys are more passionate or not, its not relevant, unless they have beaten someone, that would be completely different, but since they did not as far as we know, if they get nervous more often or not its not relevant, they are professional athletes. So using the same logic, the guy from greece that got angry in the olympics should have his visa denied for the next olympics if it happens in the U.S. ? Cuz he reacted bad to a competition ?
2018-01-15 02:55
If you talk about being professional, kng wasn't, he made a mistake like anyone else. He learned his lesson and you'll see he will be in the next major. Have a good evening

2018-01-15 03:17
More passionate? Try immature! Why are you trying to sugarcoat their behavior? And by the way, being "pro murder" and giving out direct death threats is not the same thing. Anyone who like CSGO and wants esports as a whole to grow and be respected in the eyes of the public should reject the immature brats hard! Their actions damaged the whole professional community and showed the critics that esports is not ready to be taken seriously since the players themselves don't take it seriously!

Im not trying to do anything, they had questionable acts that made them pay, losing the championship, losing their income ($$), losing their organization and their team. . Their behavior had consequences, and they paid for it, just like dozens of pro players that had bad behaviors in the past and are now more mature. This is not about e-sports, it happens a lot in soccer aswell, if you watch any sports you have dozens of cases way worse than that, a punition was deserved and they had it, now they have a new chance to do it different. . Your anger cannot, and shouldnt, stop players from playing. I myself have a lot of problems with lots of csgo players and their behavior, I just wish them the best, and that they improve on it, but I don't think any of them should been denied to play, since they qualify and already paid their debts.
2018-01-15 03:35
So why use that word and not call it for what it is? Passionate is considered a good thing, being an unprofessional brat is a bad thing. You did it again by calling it "questionable" it isn't questionable, it is horrendous! Please enlighten me when three soccer players missed the kickoff for a final and then made direct death threats to ppl theorizing as to why they where late. Since it seem to be such a common thing in your opinion. And even if other athletes does bad things, the consequences for the sport is not as bad as in this case. Most other sports are already accepted and respected by the public. But most ppl still look down on esports and if we want to change that, behavior like this needs to gen punished very hard. Their actions undermined years of hard work for others trying to show that esports is a true sport by acting professional at all times. Newer/smaller sports will always take more damage from a scandal like this, that is why it matters so much!

Ronaldinho Gaucho missed dozens of team things (in the most popular sport in the world) because he was partying. Same with Adriano "Imperator", and the last one actually was actually connected to drug dealers and murderers in favelas, and btw, IT WAS NOT ON TWITTER, it was on REAL LIFE, and they still had their contracts with their big teams and real soft punishment. . Again, they play a game that KILLING is normal, it is a 18+ game, and it was a TWIT, he didn't BEAT anyone inreal life, so save ur BS to urself, they paid a lot for that event they missed and their team ENDED because of that twit, and now 6 months later you're complaining that they would have a second chance
2018-01-15 17:10

all the visa issues proof, that esports needs to be respected as sports and the players need to be treated like professional sportsmen. this will solve alot of the visa issues
2018-01-15 08:23
Events in the US need to be scrapped until visa issues can be sorted out, it's insane that so many visa issues happen at US events yet nothing ever gets done about it. 2 teams have been forced to pull out of the major due to visa issues, 100T and Tyloo have basically been robbed of tens of thousands of dollars just because valve is dumb enough to host a major in the US.
2018-01-15 08:58
Sure... mostly everything is about money. But I don't really think that 100 Thieves just picked them up for the Major spot. The lineup got potential for the future.
2018-01-15 09:05
the major is a multi million $ industry aside from the price money, so yea, the org just got fully rekt paid multiple flights from poland to germany and from germany to brazil and the other way round + 2 months in bootcamp + the sum to buy out 3 imt player + bit since they can't print money it needs to come from somewhere right? also their stickers are fucking expensive now, but not so many are circulating at all. + majority of people buy stickers after major, because everyone know the 75% discount on last day.... they don't go without anything, but the sticker money alone is immense + they get 50% on resales as well. now calculate that over the years.... RIP all thanks to valve tyloo rekt 100t rekt no usa major anymore, they should go back to cologne, katowice, or some balkan country where playing is not a problem
