Continuation vs No Continuation

Recommended Posts

Now that Halo is not a part of MLG why do we still use continuation? It seems absolutely pointless and puts a lot of mental pressure on the losing team (hints why we don't see many teams come back and win off of a continuation series that they are down in). Take for instance the series with BTH vs Severance in losers finals BTH is up 3-0 against Severance so that means Severance has to win 6 games and BTH has to win 3 but how is that fair since they are both in loser's? Severance has to essentially beat BTH twice while BTH is already in loser's. Also no one else uses continuation not EVO or SC2 and LoL in Korea and tournaments outside of MLG. So why do we continue to use it? When no one else seems to use it because they all believe each series is a new series between teams. I think we need to take a serious look at this format.

I don't mind it. Some of the greatest comebacks are the result of an awesome continuation series. 

 

Maybe it doesn't make much sense in Losers Bracket, but I don't mind it for the finals.

yeah it just did, with SvR coming back.

 

I for one don't like continuation, just seems random you either get an advantage or no advantage if the next team were placed in the same bracket groupings as you and u played previously. Yeah we've seen some awesome comebacks with continuation, but we also see a lot more losses lol

It is hard, but that is what makes it awesome when it happens. 

 

Carbon came back 0-5 to win 6-5 once (I believe it was a losers finals?). There have been a few more like that where people were down 4-1, 5-1, 3-0, ect... I'd say it happens once every year or so (which is a lot considering MLG only had 4-5 events a year and there are only a few opportunities to have a rematch in tourney)

I mean i get it yeah its awesome when it happens but it hardly happens at all. How many times has it happened since agl started?

Since halo is no longer part of MLG.

 

Why are we still playing halo 4?

 

 

Ohh.

 

Video commentary topic. Now off to cap gameplay.

Generic "dev support" argument, rather than play a game we like.

 

Go look at Smash Melee for anyone who disagrees with me.
