Major Qualifier Round 5 match-ups drawn

ELEAGUE has revealed the match-ups for the fifth and final Swiss round of the Boston Major Qualifier.

The draw has produced an all-CIS clash between AVANGAR and Quantum Bellator Fire, the two teams who came out of the CIS Minor, which was topped by the Kazakhstani side.

Natus Vincere will be seeking redemption against Liquid after being thumped by FaZe, while mousesports will lock horns with Renegades in the most interesting encounter of the fifth round.

Na`Vi will take on Liquid for a spot in the main stage

The losing teams of this round will not be sent home right away as they will take part in a last-chance stage to determine 100 Thieves' replacement. These three teams will be seeded according to the strength of the opponents they faced in the Swiss stage, with the winner securing a spot in the Major's New Legends stage.

Below you can find the draw for the fifth round of the Swiss stage:

Ukraine Natus Vincere vs. United States Liquid
Europe mousesports vs. Australia Renegades
Kazakhstan AVANGAR vs. Russia Quantum Bellator Fire

I like qbf but they have to beat avangar, envyus with malek instead of rpk and flash? Does that seem in the slightest earned?

Lol if they make it they have won: 1) nV with a coach as a standin for their second best player due to sudden ilness 2) Flash who didn't even qualify from the Asia minor, but were brought here because Tyloo couldn't make it 3) Avangar with some good players but definetely one of the worst teams in the qualifier......
2018-01-16 00:40
Rpk is their best player, he has a 1.22 rating on lan last year but not a lot of maps but the best among his team hltv.org/stats/players?startDate=2017-01..
2018-01-16 00:51
Flash had two stand ins too
2018-01-16 02:10
People should have doubted them, they just barely beat EnVy 4 v 5... Put them against any of the other 4 teams that aren't Avangar and they 100% don't make the Major groups.

Yeah, there is a good chance both make it in, but the fact that either QBF or Avangar makes it in before both teams is, at least from my pov, ridiculous and justifies having a change to the format.

2018-01-16 00:18
#121
 | 
Australia JonoMate 
Even just basic reseeding every round like a team that was in the 1-2 pool has to play a team that was in the 2-1 pool and that prevents this AVANGAR vs QBF thing.
2018-01-16 00:22
What? No thats just wrong, whats the point of swiss system then? It would be unfair. They just need to reseed after every round, based on some ranking.
2018-01-16 00:27
#163
 | 
Australia JonoMate 
While I agree about the ranking thing the basic reseeding is easier. What I meant is that you seed based off the previous pools you were in. So in the 2-2 pool, teams that came up from the 1-2 pool cannot play each other and teams that lost in the 2-1 pool cannot play each other.

yeah the whole format is utter asscream. Who the fk decides the Vs. match-ups and how do they have that kind of power? Is it one person deciding this or wtf. Brain dead system.
2018-01-16 00:18
I mean its not one person, it was a draw, but still they should reseed since round2, so we would be in this situation

You have 6 teams you give the each a number you draw 1 number you remove that team you draw another mumber you remove that team. Those 2 play vs each other, repeat Doesnt matter who does it its completely random no one has any "power" over this and if you think someone actually does youre delusional.

2018-01-16 00:24
NV playing with stand-in on their most important match
2018-01-16 00:35
So since RNG had a 16-14 loss to Vega who went 3-1 with a loss to G2 in overtime and beat FaZe, they're almost 100% have the 9th spot if it comes down to it. Or maybes I don't understand this whole thing at all.
2018-01-16 00:20
Liquid lost 16-14 to faze and Vega and beat rng already so you might not
2018-01-16 00:21
True but I don't see NaVi overcoming Liquid atm with their current consistency. Mouse and RNG will be good to see, pretty much a 50/50. Last game is stupid af.
2018-01-16 00:26
Navi is scary because s1mple by liquid has looked good this event. 50/50 for me and #189
2018-01-16 01:48
Told ya
2018-01-16 02:49
They won't be garanteed. They will just be the "finalist" for the spot while the other 2 teams face it other before.
2018-01-16 00:24
Don't blame the format Mouz losing to ss and rng losing to vega made this situation possible. Shit happens

NaVi, Liquid, Renegades, Mouz ALL deserve to be there. NOT QBFIRE AND AVANGAR. the only thing good coming out of this is an obvious 0-3 (QBFIRE) they wouldnt even make it to the cis minor if they played EU ONLY FLIPPING REASON THEY HERE

Worst major to date, some things seriously need to change. Coaches like zews and maLeK having to play, Tyloo not making it to the major while they were the ones who actually qualified, 100thieves, a Legend team, not making it to the major... And BO1's in a major are stupid, it allows for stupid shit like this to happen. A major should be BO3 double elimination, so you take out the random upset factor, and only actual good teams make it through. So what if groups take a week to be played, it's a fucking major, it should be treated as the most prestiguous and biggest event in the game. Majors right now are a joke.

"with the winner securing a spot in the Major's New Legends stage." So, the incompetent 2-3 team will get a legend spot while the 3-0 teams will still be challengers?

i just wanna say... F the swiss system. I'm sick of its bo1 random-based shit. it ruins the whole major. it's the reason a 3 week tourney only has 7 bo3s, some of which might suck cuz of the bo1 created randomness
