mouz's failure, iBUYPOWER issues, Major format & more: HLTV Confirmed Episode 3 VOD
HLTV Confirmed returned with the third episode of the third season, in which the panel took on all the hot topics of the previous week.
Update: You can watch the show back on VOD here:
Lots has happened over the last week, including several surprises at the Europe and CIS Minors, such as mousesports bombing out of the group stage at the hands of Valiance, while Gambit also disappointed by not making it through to the Major from their region.
In the meantime, at iBUYPOWER Masters, which was far from a perfect event as it was plagued by organizational and technical issues from the start, the new Liquid grabbed their first-ever series win over Astralis in the grand final of the event, while the Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev-infused FaZe were eliminated in the groups by Ghost.
In recent news, ESL revealed the new Major format, which addresses the main criticisms of the previous systems, such as the lack of best-of-three series in the Swiss stages of the event and seeding.
That, alongside a preview of what's to come at the Americas and Asia Minors, which are set to kick off tomorrow, was among the main topics of the upcoming episode.
The full list of the main topics looks as follows:
- Breaking news: ESL reveals Major format
- EU & CIS Minors, mousesports' and Gambit's failure & more
- Striker vs. Professeur, the GG.BET duel
- iBUYPOWER Masters issues, Liquid's triumph and FaZe's early exit
