HLTV Confirmed ep. 7 VOD: controversial scheduling of Starladder's Major and a mid-IEM Katowice show
The seventh episode of HLTV Confirmed, which will largely revolve around the results of the first stage of IEM Katowice and an analysis of the second stage, is set to go live at 20:00 CET tonight.
Update: The VOD is now available:
After a pre-Major show in episode 6, HLTV Confirmed returns tonight with a look back at the results of the New Challengers Stage, which saw plenty of surprises over the course of the last week.
The usual four-man panel will naturally look ahead into the New Legends Stage, where the eight teams who have made it through the first stage will join the current legends coming from the FACEIT Major.
But before we even reach the discussions around IEM Katowice, we will first take a look at the controversial scheduling of the recently announced Berlin Major, as it will start immediately after the end of the player break on August 20, which has been met with quite some criticism from the scene.
The main topics of the seventh episode will be:
- Starladder Major's scheduling
- Results of the IEM Katowice New Challengers Stage
- HLTV Confirmed does New Legends seeding
- Prof vs. Striker duel
- New Legends Stage analysis
- HLTV Confirmed does second round of Pick'Ems
- Top three of the week
