Halo World Championship 2017 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

ESL FINALLY does their paid job and has a normal STANDARDIZED stream and people are defending the venue because the stream is *okay*

Optic would have because they would have had a higher regional seed.

 

 

This is how pool play has always worked. Don't get why it's confusing now

It would make sense to me if the pool was double round robin. 

 

If TL would've lost 1 game then the seeding based off pools would've literally been useless for the top teams from each group.

another Halo event, another major failure. This franchise is the laughing-stock of "competitive" e-sports.

Do you guys prefer a sellout crowd of like 100 people or 200 empty seats like Summer Finals?

Summer finals was held at a KPop convention and was announced 2 weeks before the actual tournament. This isn't a defense.

That's a ridiculous way to seed. Seeding based off 2 series? So who gets red side if Str8 would've beaten TL? Since OG and Str8 both went 6-1.

Good question.

Good question.

Apparently it goes to regional seeding. I just think if you're going to seed based off 2 series, you should just seed based off regional seeding instead. I agree with using pool for seeding in a double round robin format, but not for single round robin with 3 teams per group.

what does this even mean?

 

was his comment not worded strongly enough for you?

 

 

cool story bro

 

the venue is 100% an embarrassment and it's even more so now that all the console esport bigwigs put us on blast  

 

 

i am too enjoying the event but i also want halo esports to grow

 

 

that's a first

It means that this dogshit isn't justified. Go look at the replies, it's just 'our community' shitting on it's own scene. From the looks of it, it was just a passing comment but the reaction from the community makes it seem much much worse. It's not a big deal from an outside perspective, I mean really, how the fuck would you know from watching the stream? I haven't seen a single crowd/event shot where I thought "this is a dogshit event".

 

Honestly it feels like we're reliving the fact we're not in a great venue for the sake of drama. I knew where we'd be a while ago, I've come to terms with it and the presentation of the event has been great.

Alex you and I both have a lot of "insider info" and with that in hand, you know that while what you said is true, the main stage is a 50 seat studio. If that is what they wanted to showcase they shouldn't have tried to spin a "campus". That has been my beef with it, embrace what it is don't sell it as something else.

 

The broadcast is pretty solid (good job Lenox) but my subjective opinion as a fan is this needs leveled up for a world championship, irregardless of unflattering pics used.

 

I've talked to 3 different people at the event, they have all said it's incredibly underwhelming and doesn't feel like a 1 million dollar tourney at all. They said the games were good though.

 

No shit talk, these are people that have been around.

eL town is clearly the worst on LG, Ninja died bad deaths at the end yeah, but he was carrying .

 

eL town doesn't seem to be able to win the easiest 1v1s

 

unfortunately true. There's only so much "dirty work" you can do to make up for not having a good shot
