New Legends Stage Round 3 match-ups determined

With the first day of the New Legends Stage in the rearview mirror, ESL has determined the pairings for the third round of fixtures.

The 2-0 pool will be headlined by a mouth-watering clash between Liquid and Natus Vincere, the current No.2 and No.3 teams in the world, with current Major champions Astralis taking on Renegades, the surprise package of the tournament so far, in the other match.

In the 0-2 pool, NRG will fight for their tournament lives against fellow North American side compLexity, while BIG face a must-win clash against ENCE.

Na`Vi will fight for Legend status against Liquid

Cloud9 will be looking to bounce back from their 16-0 beating against Vitality in one of the most interesting clashes in the 1-1 pool, the last to feature a best-of-one format.

Below you can find the complete match-ups for the third round:

2-0 Pool:

Denmark Astralis vs. Australia Renegades
United States Liquid vs. Ukraine Natus Vincere

1-1 Pool:

Europe FaZe vs. Kazakhstan AVANGAR
Brazil MIBR vs. France G2
Sweden NiP vs. Other HellRaisers
France Vitality vs. United States Cloud9

0-2 Pool:

United States NRG vs. North America compLexity
Finland ENCE vs. Germany BIG

We all have seen this before. 0-2 -> 3-2 BIG will win the major. EZ for GERMANY 😎

So to you, each time a team loses a match, it should change its roster? oly fak
2019-02-21 01:31
nah but if a team is overhyped like m16r and they lose the first match in the major 16-3 to a meme team they should just disband

Because people think it is funny, there is a million hateful threads about br teams in one day but as soon as a br team wins somethin g all Brazilians make threads celebrating but then we are 3rd world undeveloped monkeys, there is a guy who spends his entire day hating mibr in hltv, If we complain to be called names we are playing the victim, you are south American too so you know that monkey for us is maybe even worse than n***** is for americans, it is really stupid tbh, if you don't want to waste your time don't even read forums, everyone here is under 20, nobody is mature enough to have a decent conversation

For My Pick-em, I really want this to Happen (already lost 3-0 ENCE pick), but the Road is Very Hard ahead. Because of Seeding, BIG will have to face Slightly Higher-speed Opponents, so, it'll first have to Defeat ENCE, then the Second Seed of the Next 1-2 pool, then, Probably a Loser of the 2-1 pool. That would be a really cool Storyline.

Prediction: Reduction in Base Damage of AUG, so that it's not 1-shot anymore, Decreased Movement Accuracy for both Scoped AR's
2019-02-21 07:31
It's rarely 1-shot though, and I don't think decreased movement accuracy will help that much since AUG is mostly used to hold long angles instead of peek

I think big have looked worse. Tabsen had a horrible day of CS and Xantares only fragged in their second game because mirage is his favourite map and he was playing it as if it was fpl. In their first game he was trash.

Actually it does cuz if liquid win then Astralis and Liquid are are opposite sides of the play off bracket so they will only face each other in the final which is the best possible final

Question: Why do MiBR appear as 4th in seed and FaZe 5th on HLTV but on the ESL stream it's FaZe 4th and MiBR 5th?

This ELO system used in major still count in swiss round. Since MIBR lose for C9 (a worse seed team than RNG), FaZe gain points enough for pass MIBR and pick a low seed team.
2019-02-21 01:45
Oh okay I though the player seeding was fixed at the beginning and it doesn't change during the Major

Ok ty, I didnt know that they can lose elo after matches.
2019-02-21 01:38
that is exactly how elo works... the bigger the disparity between teams, the more elo you lose/gain for win/loss.. MIBR losing to C9 would have lost a lot of ELO, while if Liquid lost to Astralis, they’d lose next to no ELO
2019-02-21 02:24
Need nrg to beat complexity to secure that 0-3 pickem for safety.

1. Can someone tell me the exact variables being used for the ELO rating? 2. Is there no ELO rating after Swiss Round 2? ad 1.: my assumptions are highest R = 2000 (or whatever) increments are 10, so Astralis = 2.000, Complexity = 1.850 k = 10 First observation: After the first round, there was a mistake in the showed ranking (NiP rank 10, Vitality rank 11) but pairings were correct with NiP on rank 11 and Vitality on rank 10 (otherwise NiP would have played against Navi, which they didn't). ad 2.: After the second round, the teams rank were exactly the same as after the first round, which is only possible if you do not update the ELO rating. If rated correctly, the matchups in round 3 would be: MIBR vs. Avangar and Faze vs. G2 (all others would be the same) Can someone tell me what's what ? thx

They do update the rankings same as in challengers. The bigger the upset the more affect it has. But if favorite wins it barely changes anything. Teams facing at similar level also doesn't affect much. Here's the current rankings (lower is better) twitter.com/IEM/status/10983757650900705..

yeh after the ranking system was established, the team's ranking doesn't change which means that teams like nip and avangar will have to play way better teams like renegades which is one #8 due to this system thus it quite unfair
2019-02-21 02:16
Astralis Liquid Avangar MIBR/G2 (Close game both seems to suck a bit, but i guess MIBR is a bit better) NiP Vitality/C9 (C9 if they can bounce back from that 16-0, if not surely Vitality) NRG BIG BYE BYE ENCE
2019-02-21 01:51

NAVI will be trouble for a, so far, only decent showing by Liquid. Wake up! Mibr gets another gift as G2 looks just as faded. NRG with a massive gift. They do not look cohesive at all. Ence Big is a sad goodbye.
