FACEIT Major quarter-final pairs determined

The quarter-final pairs of the FACEIT Major have been determined following MIBR's win over NiP in the last match of the New Legends stage.

Day five saw the final three teams lock their spots in the New Champions stage. The fifth round began with HellRaisers up against fnatic, where the Swedes kicked off the series with a win on Mirage following a huge comeback from a 5-14 deficit.

However, Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow & co. responded on Dust2 with a confident showing on the CT side before decimating the Swedish side 16-2 on Cache, with fnatic as an organization, as well as Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson as an individual, missing out on Major playoffs for the first time.

Astralis-FaZe clash headlines the quarter-final matchups

FaZe followed with their win over G2, who put up a great fight on the second map, Dust2, but ultimately fell after a triple-overtime battle.

In the last match of the New Legends stage, MIBR survived their map, Cache, after an overtime triumph, before Mirage went NiP's way and it all came down to Train. There, the Brazilian-American squad locked down a 10-5 half as Terrorists and came out victorious at 16-11 to become the last playoffs team.

After MIBR rounded out the playoffs teams, the Buchholz seeding system determined the quarter-final matchups. The playoffs bracket looks as follows:

Thursday, September 20
16:15 - Germany BIG vs. Ukraine Natus Vincere
19:45 - North America compLexity vs. Brazil MIBR

Friday, September 21
17:15 - North America Liquid vs. Other HellRaisers
20:45 - Denmark Astralis vs. Europe FaZe

did u see how they play against big or navi when karrigan calls ? i did anmd i was scaried a lot .. i think that niko as igl can do more
2018-09-16 23:00
Yeah? There's a big difference between big, navi and fnatic, g2. When you're at a major with that much pressure on you you want to trust on your igl 100%. When you're at 00:30 time left on a key round that will determine wether you get reset or not and your IGL tells you to rotate to the other side, you don't want to waste 4 seconds arguing with him, you want to be able to rely on him and trust that he will make the right call. NiKo won't be able to do this and he won't focus on the game well.

To say that device and magisk are batter than the opposing players is kinda stupid. Faze overall have the better lineup. They just don’t have the #1 role that matters the most... IGL. Gla1ve is the reason why astralis is so good

So? Even if rain did twice as good as Magisk thats one tournament. When you go by a relevant sample size its clear magisk is the better, more impactful player, no shame to rain but Magisk is performing better than him atm. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/9032/Magi..
2018-09-17 05:32
rain is rolling with a rating 0.02 away from karrigan for the last 3 months, who is by FAR the worst-rated player in FaZe at the moment (excluding rain, of course). rain has been a DOGSHIT player at least ever since Olof came back, and he's been pretty meh the entirety of 2018.

Because they are playing well lately, they just got hard matchs

Whatever you want to call it, produced insane and unfair matchups then. Any sane person would have realized that BIG-coL and Ast-Liquid is way worse and more unfair matchups then BIG-Ast/Liquid and coL-Liquid/Ast. And that is just some of the super unfair draws.

Okay now you are baiting. You yourself said that these ''matchups was determined based on the results''. And since it's the system making these matchups it's responsible for matching up BIG with coL and Ast with Liquid in the 2-0 matches. How is that reasonable and defendable?

Yes they will Navi only relies on firepower, Smooya and Tabsen this event are able to rival S1mple and Electronic. Nex and Tizian are comparable to Edward and Flamie. The difference in this matchup lies within the fact that Gob B is actually the best igl and counter-stratter that is playing this game and he will find a way to counter every 12 iq strat Zeus puts forward. Gob B won't just absolutely demolish Navi, he will embarass S1mple and Electronic, his mind reaches trough the universe. Gob B isn't just a genius. Gob B is

it's not luck, it's the system... 1 faces 8 2 faces 7 3 faces 6 4 faces 5
2018-09-16 22:42
Lucky for the team, not because the system. You know what he tried to mean it. Its really a bless after the Astralis struggle they play against coL in the first elimination match. I think we can say that Is unlucky for coL, for real.
2018-09-16 22:51
#290
 | 
Brazil hugoooo 
And they were #8 because of the Bulchoz system, that takes in consideration the other teams results. Therefore, they got lucky to be #8 and face coL. HR was #7 just because the teams they beat won ONE map more than the teams mibr beat. That's luck.

That's not how it works mibr could have been facing liquid it's drawn from a bowl but 3-0 teams face 3-2 teams 3-1 teams face 33-1 teams. One lucky 3-1 team gets to face a 3-2 team
2018-09-17 08:38

BIG have already beaten Faze in a bo3. But I agree col arent as proven it will be tough for them but I hope they can show some depth in their map pool. But my point was that the bracket isnt as lopsided as you're implying.
2018-09-17 01:35

It is quite lopsided you have the 3 favourites on one side of the bracket
2018-09-17 08:39

Astralis liquid and navi are the 3 favorites? Astralis and liquid are on one side navi is on the other. If you're insinuating faze are favored over navi you're ignorant to the scene. Navi are in way better form.
2018-09-17 09:26
#649
 | 
United Kingdom Gio_bose 
i never said that navi weren't a favourite its just if the top 4 teams played the bottom 4 teams then it would be a navi liquid astralis faze semifinals . then it should be a liquid astralis final. so if you have the 3/4 teams that should finish in the top 4 on the same side of the bracket and then the 2 teams that should be in the final on that same side of the bracket then that seems like a pretty lopsided bracket to me.
2018-09-19 20:22
#652

And thats probably what would have happened in a perfect world where every team plays at their peak every game and faze doesn't start 0-2. Unfortunately it took NiKo calling to light a spark under them

So what's your point? That's how swiss system works. To be the best team in the world you need to be able to beat teams in all kinds of matches, bo1 bo3 and bo5 And big has beat them in bo3s before. Point is it wasn't just an "upset victory" that was close but BiG won the clutches or pistols. It was a dominant performance from BiG and faze looked lost. BiG completely out prepared them.

The fuck is this bullcrap? Astralis is continuing to face the best teams, and only them, they haven't had one ''lucky'' draw, if this isn't rigged af which it probably is. Why the fuck can MIBR be against complexity? Rofl, giving favelas free wins to not be accused of racism or something. 10/10 system, really. Astralis-FaZe in quarters, this is exactly the shit that allowed Gambit and IMT to reach finals, and where tf are they now? In the garbage bin. Just wow.
2018-09-16 22:45
It makes perfect sense. 3-0 teams face the two worst 3-2 teams. Astralis is the best 3-1 team so they get the last 3-2 team. Then the other two 3-1 teams get matched together.
2018-09-16 22:49
This is actually the only part I can agree with.. using that in playoff bracket makes sense but what it did to the rest of the tournament is garbage. It is GREAT for chess but it is cancer for CSGO because of the way CSGO can vary especially in BO1. Swiss system needs BO3, logical reseeding, or both. NOT compounding the problem variance further and further each round. Thanks for the post I didn't know that and it does make sense as a system. I bet this is so loved in chess if made for it. Smart really..
2018-09-16 23:09
Also Liquid is on the harder side of the 3-0 bracket because CoL had a higher round win differential.
2018-09-16 23:32
Yeah and maps are not the same when it comes to rounds etc, its just sad how things have ended up. Better off going back to GSL and double elim BO3

So they use this buchholz bullshit more ? it destroyed the chance of best final. Both semis are fucking ridiculous the whole bottom half of bracket WTF. I dont even want to watch majors anymore after this joke of a demonstration how bad the Swiss system can be. As thorin put it the system has a self correcting mechanism, upsets can be redeemed This bullshit compounds the problem of variance in BO1 CSGO, Swiss system already has imperfections due to this, random seeding can create shit matchups. Logical reseeding would go a long way to fixing it though. Buchholz is even worse than random seeding ? Is it ? no way please let me be wrong

IT IS WORSE THAN RANDOM SEEDING LMAO HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE Fucking hell if Valve can't see what cancer this is for BO1 CSGO im done.. majors can blow me. The logic of the system is fine, great for chess or other games that have little variance and outcomes are dependent on skill. Fix the money system problem, sure, BO1 CSGO can actually be far less variable. Imagine round loss being total rounds lost not consecutive... more you dominate more gun rounds they get too. CT horror stories are a thing of the past. 3-4 player insta saves on CT aren't a thing that we ever see again.. better for everyone to fix this
2018-09-16 23:17

2018-09-16 23:12
Honestly FaZe is a new team now with NiKo as IGL, fresh and more significant callings. FaZe will overcome Astralis 2-1 because of this. MIBR is learning fast, which will grant them the win against coL. Liquid has high IQ, which will overcome Hellraisers. NaVi has s1mple, which is 1vs9, which is EZ for s1mple. This is a more concise prediction.
2018-09-16 23:14
CoL 2-1 MiBR BiG 1-2 NaVi Astralis 2-0 FaZe Liquid 2-0 HR :( Feelsbadman my team is about to get raped by Astralis. Only prayer we have is NiKo calling catching Astralis off guard but I doubt it.
2018-09-16 23:20
Guardian could go full god mode like sydney
2018-09-16 23:26
IDK man Astralis are looking unreal with only liquid seeming like a true threat to them. Guardian has been shaky and rain has been pretty flat. Only positives I can see is NiKo switching stuff up with calling and olof fragging like crazy rn. Still don't think it's enough to dethrone the Danish beasts.
2018-09-16 23:29
I mean i hope for a good match but same i cant see it even going to 3 maps what is faze even going to pick? Mirage? Then you obviously dont want to play astralis on nuke, dust, overpass and maybe inferno

Wft, Navi is so lucky. Either Liquid or Astralis will exit in the quarterfinals and all Navi has to do to reach the final is beat BIG and MiBR/Complexity. That is a huge and free fucking gift to Navi. Jesus Christ they must be celebrating tonight.
2018-09-16 23:37
yes its good, but we have Astralis next Faze its very hard))))
2018-09-16 23:44
Faze is in bad shape right now and MiBR is not good enough at the moment either. Astralis, Liquid or Navi will win this Major. And as such Navi is nearly guaranteed a spot in the final. With Astralis and Liquid it is around 50/50 who wins. That is why Navi had the lucky draw because it only needs to beat one of the three best teams to win whereas Liquid/Astralis has to beat both of the other two.
2018-09-16 23:52
I think Astralis will be in Final

2018-09-17 07:10
Why everyone is complaining about the system? Only bad thing is that BiG have to play NaVi (both teams with 3-1), other matchups are fair enough. Teams that struggled playing better teams from groupstage so there is no space for cry, every team dreaming to get this trophy need to win against best teams in the world so there is a hope for FaZe, the only scenario they can win against Astralis is to met them in 1/4, because in semis or final it would be a slaughter.

This stupid system never stop to spoil this tournament with stupid early top matchups.. Seriously there should have been a draw for the round of 8. Winning random BO1 shouldn't warrant this kind of advantage for so long.

2018-09-17 00:41
Yes, but being advantaged both in BO1 Legends Round and the Final Bracket is too much .. Some of the stronger teams ended up facing half of the top ten just because of a close BO1 loss in the start

2018-09-17 01:03
If MiBR didn't get rekt by 16-0, I'd would say that they threw the match against Astralis, because they didn't even made a tactical pause. But I now think that they are just lucky as hell, I thought they would lose on quarter-finals, but they will probably lose on semi-finals against Na'Vi unless Fallen continues to carry and Fer turns on his monitor.
2018-09-17 01:16

I lost my predictions here... /////// 1-4 1) CompLexity 1-2 MIBR (well-played CompLexity from my hard but next stages top team only. 2) BIG 0-2 Navi (it will first win for Navi on updated Dust2) 3) Liquid 2-1 HellRaisers (This match will be last for HR in London ... They needs to improve team mental and just practice on lan with top teams. more and more) 4) Astralis 2-0 FaZe (faze will crashed on to maps.) /////// 1-2 1) Navi 2-0 Mibr 2) Astralis (2-1) Liquid ////// Navi (2-0) Astralis

Another major trashed by swiss system. Again a fluke will encounter and a tier2/3 team will probably get in the finals or even win. Since swiss systems , majors have become shit....

final: Liquid vs NaVi

It's a better tournament system than the previous one, but still, if we see the best teams matching up in the QF, it's not a good system

Does this mean that FaZe/Astralis cannot meet Liquid in the final, and same with NaVi and mibr?
2018-09-17 09:26
yes, if faze and liquid win, they met in semis, same with NaVi and MiBR

These matchups are not cool man... No dream final and with teams like BIG and complexity in the playoff, such a shame...
2018-09-17 09:27
its mainly Bo1 fault, so weaker teams (BiG, CoL) got those preference spots. And we still have nice matchups like Faze vs Astralis and possible FazE/Astralis vs Liquid, just instead of Final it will be in quarter, semis.
