I hope the display won't change from 5 to 6 player in one team. Counter-Strike was always a 5v5 game, and it should be.
2020-03-25 13:55
Looks like 6 man teams will become more common.

I don't see it working like they want, but we will see.
2020-03-25 15:38
may work for Astralis because they've got a lot of discipline and all that, but I still see it causing a lot of internal problems. Why am I always the one getting replaced, why is he playing more than I am, I am your 6th but I barely played any matches, the 6th guy not blending in properly, etc etc. I'd like to be proven wrong but we'll see.

I believe 6 man rosters will not work at tier 1 scene.

Make it 6v6 and add respawn instead of wait till everyone dies Ez revive csgo scene. 🔥
2020-03-25 14:04
How can you revive something not dead?
2020-03-25 14:09
U think multinationals and game developers only look at the CURRENT situation?? Oh it will die sooner or later and i think pretty soon tbh. Updating this would be totally kickass

This gotta be the dumbest comment right here. Respawn in CS? Nice joke.

Other games = super popular. Why dumb in cs???

Because Cs has been based off of defuse for 20+ years. Changing that now would make 0 sense when the game is thriving.

I am fine with it if they have to stick with 5 with one only being able to be used in extreme circumstances. Bullshit if they can go into a major and can change their active 5 map to map game to game.

Major price pool should be increased to 3.000.000$+,because teams will not get a big bunch of money from the team stickers and sponsors.

6man seems really retarded, paying someone to sit on the bench and possibly never play? and how will that 6th man feel? and how will his skill drop when not getting to play on big stage at big tournies?

I agree. Even when he plays imagine this, you get on the active roster at the last tier 1 tournament before the major to let dev1ce rest. You perform really well and win the tournament. Wouldn't you want to be in roster at the major as well?
2020-03-25 23:30
yea but instead u get put back on the bench so device can take his spot back and u have to sit back and watch from the sidelines...i would never be a 6th man if i was a pro. Id rather play on a t2 team then sit on the bench of a t1 team.

6 man roster sound good imo. Of course current rules limit the possibilityes much, but I think it nice idea to have some rest to some players. I hope they make rule change so they can change players mid game, like in other sports. Yes, I am aware the struggle to train with six men roster, but it is intresting idea. This is what I would like to see: more substitutes. I know it sound crazy, but hear me. They have their number one roster with 5 players playing and possible 1 or 2 at bench. The team also have 5 or more players on reserve. When number one goes to tournament, they take 6 or 7 to play. Meanwhile reserve can participate to other event. This already happens on other sports. I know it sound bizarre but imo it is best way.
2020-03-25 20:33
this makes no sense...so ur saying that a team can qualify for an event with their starting 5, and then their back up 5 can go play the event even tho they are nowhere near as good as the starting 5 that qualified for it?
2020-03-26 00:04
Finland Pitsa31 
Kinda. Of course if my system would go as norm, it probably would cause so kinda rule changes to prevent that situations. But more like soccer or hockey kinda thing. Either second team play MDL or participate in tier2 tournaments with invites (Like soccer). Or complitly own league for back ups (Like NHL have AHL).
2020-03-26 12:30
I dont think your idea would work very well, I like the idea of a 6 or even 7 man roster with being allowed to change the roster during tournaments; but maybe not from map to map, instead you go through the tournament selecting your roster for each series, you could change your teams play style and some of the roles based on who your next opponent will be. Much like in football where some teams will change tactics based on different factors like who the opponent is.
2020-03-26 16:25
I don't really like it, and I don't think it will work well most of the time.
