But also makes it even more interesting on the bottom end giving Liquid the upper hand by overtaking Optic (if the loose) and avoiding Denial in Relegation.

How does the relegation work? Will the am teams only get to play 1 series, win or lose?

Well, avoiding Denial for the first round at least

 

Yeah that too, certainly a better scenario.

Best of 7 double elim, the team which finished 7th place in pro league gets to pick which Open team they wish to play round 1.

Gotcha. Glad they are doing it this way.

So is it safe to assume all the series in the finals are bo7? Any information on the veto system for the LAN?

I don't believe any of this is public yet, will certainly look into it and follow up.

Idk if this has been said yet, but this nV E6 match is for 2nd and 3rd seed at this lan, but doesnt 2nd seed face 3rd seed, so regardless they are playing eachother?  idk how the lan works but with only 4 teams there is there even a difference between 2nd and 3rd seed?  i think the match is probably still important to the players just to try and finish the season in the best placing they can, but as far as the lan is concerned i dont think it matters

Shouldn't it be higher seed gets side choice? Or is it just assumed that the higher seed will always want red side?

i play boxer, so i use mine to thrust. It can fall right out if i let it, but i can still use it. My left stick is having an issue too.

 

 

Seems like the left bumper issue is prevalent

 

This is a massive problem. I play bumper jumper so I use left bumper to jump. I've had the bumper just fall out on a stock, elite, and scuf controllers (Part of the problem is when I stabilize jump to reach higher places I mash the bumper). I've trained myself to not be so rough with the bumper but come on. 3 controllers? FeelsBadMan

I don't have anything against RNG (i'm a big Victory X fan he gets no credit but is the glue for that team) but I really want Liquid to get the win. Both the Optic and EG matches completely change and given how late they start here in the UK it's probably the difference between me staying up and passing out

Nice lineup. Not a huge fan of the guy with the weird hair who always seems half-baked. Glad Onset is getting his due after giving the community streams all season long.

I was about to get mad that T2 wasnt there, then I realised it was EU 

I'd be fine with no T2 if this lineup was casting NA.

Those are the dumbest reward tiers I've ever seen for an event. MLG gives out exclusive Nike and MLG branded apparel, grants you access to a complimentary pro player lounge with food and drink, and used to grant early access.

ESL shelling out the big bucks for an 8.95 Mega Bloks figure that you only have three hours to claim and "comfy leather couches."

Not to mention MLG gives months in advance to plan these trips and ESL has began selling tickets with only two weeks to book.

@@Timo stop being a joke.

Also does NA not even have a caster lineup?

Are they just hoping talented casters show up to fill the roles or what the hell is going on?

Also MLG signings were always open, a pro player signing isn't a reward when you could just walk up to any pro when they weren't playing to ask for an autograph anyways.

And why would you pay extra so that you could watch the event on a TV in a lounge when you're there to watch it live? MLG used to have front row reserved seating for VIPs.
