FACEIT Major New Challengers stage fifth round matchups determined

The fifth round matchups, which will be played in best-of-three series, have been determined by the Buchholz seeding system.

Over the course of day four, we saw three teams join Liquid and NiP in the New Legends stage, as Astralis took down Spirit while HellRaisers and Complexity grabbed overtime wins over OpTic and Vega Squadron, respectively, to go 3-1 in the Swiss format.

Three more teams have also been eliminated from the tournament, with Renegades, Gambit, and Rogue going 1-3 after losing their fourth-round matchups.

BIG and OpTic will duke it out for a spot in the New Legends stage in the fifth round

The Buchholz seeding (a sum of opponents' scores) for round five looks as follows:

2-2 pool
1. Russia Vega Squadron (10-5)
2. Denmark OpTic (8-6)
3. Russia Spirit (8-8)
4. China TYLOO (7-8)
5. Germany BIG (7-9)
6. Denmark North (6-9)

That gives us the following matchups for the fifth round, which will be played in best-of-three series on Sunday, with the winners securing the last three spots in the New Legends stage:

11:00 - Russia Spirit vs. China TYLOO | BO3
14:00 - Denmark OpTic vs. Germany BIG | BO3
17:00 - Russia Vega Squadron vs. Denmark North | BO3

Spirit vs. Tyloo is a pass for me

2018-09-10 11:46
That's fine with me, still their name is BIG not Bug... but maybe I should start call Luminousity Gaming Alcolic Gaming since part of their roster was multiple time drunk on tournaments... especially the core from Immortals. Still i dont do that, bc doing this is just hilouris and it's not changing the facts either.

What is mean Vega(10-5), Optic(8-6) etc?
2018-09-09 00:11
It kinda represents the level of opponents each team had. Since BIG and North had easier opponents, their score is lower than the score of Vega, who played Liquid, BIG and Spirit.

Take North for example. They played Hellraisers (3 -1 record), Spirit (2 - 2), VP (0 - 3), Rogue (1-3). Sum of the wins of opponents - 6 - and loses - 9 - gives you this 6-9. Then you treat it like a equation 6-9=-3 so they have the worst score of all teams in 5th round. Vega has 10-5=5 so the have the best. So Vega plays North if they didn't play already. The best score plays the worst. Second best plays the second worst and so on if they didn't play already. If they played the best score plays the next worst score who they didn't play already. Round 3/4/5 should be more fair that way in most cases.
