Astralis-compLexity postponed to Thursday due to tech issues

September 6th, 2018 01:32

The final match of the first round of the FACEIT Major's New Challengers has been postponed to Thursday morning due to technical issues, the event's organisers have announced.

The battle for the final spot in the 1-0 pool will start at 11:00, pushing back all the remaining matches of the day by at least one and a half hour to accommodate the new schedule.

The draw for the 1-0 and 0-1 pools will still be held tonight at 01:45 "following a discussion with all teams involved", according to FACEIT, who apologised for the disruption to the stream broadcast.

The match was originally scheduled for 9.30 pm CET

Astralis and compLexity had been waiting for nearly two hours to start their match following an "unforeseen network outage" at the Twickenham Stadium, which will stage both the New Challengers and the New Legends stages of the FACEIT Major.

You prepare backup power. It's not that they needed to power whole stadium. You also prepare backup internet and possibly other means of distributing signal like satellite truck. Having single point of failure is their fault. One would assume that recent PGL major in my country would serve as a good lesson for all organisers, but it appears you can do even worse.
2018-09-06 08:00
Although you have a point, they have been absolute cunts about everything wrong they do. Bring it back to MLG pleaaase.

I always thought it was unfair not because of the amount of matches that were needed to be played or because 'x' amount would be too demanding for professional players. I say it's unfair just because other teams wouldn't need to do the same, that's unfair. But I think you Don't care. You just prefer to call me monkey I guess.

Ouch, now that's another problem... DIdn't they have like a substitute internet as a backup? I thought, for a Major like this, it should be easy to get around with ISPs. I remember a small CSGO tournament in Sweden (I think?) that has a shit ton of backups for troubles like this...

Some organizers do prepare themselves for large scale network outages. It's uncommon, but I've heard of external providers (like those satellite trucks) being on call in case the network goes down.

Then it would have been THE best major, if FACEIT don't fuck it up!

It's not absolutely Faceit's fault, but a tournament of this size should be prepared for a network outage. I know not many tournaments would prepare for something like this, but this can't happen at the world championship for cs.

The entire Anglosphere has such shitty internet. Burgerstan, Bongistan, Strayacunt, and probably the West Pacific Kiwi Reserve too. Maybe its time to borrow some telecom regulation from the Asians or Nordics.

Unfortunate, at least the loser of this match will only have to play Space Soldiers as their second match meaning they are likely to take it since it's practically a 5v4.
