    Any Counter Strike GO fans out there? Hopefully a few out here, my two favorite hobbies : MMA & CS.

    If so, who you got 9 qualifying this weekend? And the favorites for the Major?

    Btw, 100 Thieves are out... they didn't get their Visa's approved, so a new slot opened at the qualifier (9 instead of 8 to go and meet the Legend's 8.

    Cheers!

    I've tried watching CS:GO. It's absurdly boring.

    This thread has more baiters than casual.


    Obvious favorite is Faze.
    Technically this was renamed to Major, not Major qualifier.
    System is still same as last one, except stickers go to former qualifier teams too.

    Cool, mine was 100 thieves and now Sk.

    It’s really Major Qualifier this weekend. To narrow down to the 9 who will play rhe Major starting Friday. FaZe is still on the qualifier.

    It's a close 2nd. Just barely less boring than CS:GO.

    Rocket League ftw. Game is absurdly fun to watch.

    RL is distant second to CS.

    So, I take it you are not watching Major.

    That’s another game I can’t get behind. I see my brother playing and think it’s pretty boring too. Tbh CS is the only one I can watch, but maybe that’s because I played pro 1.6 so that helps.

    I watched abouth of half of it and will for sure catch the majors next week. I usually put the tournament on my middle monitor while i'm browsing the web or playing a slow paced game such as divinity 2

    It's just like golf, boring at first but once you pick up on the players habits/style along with the map adjustments, it's pretty entertaining to watch.

    Exactly. This major has less famous teams but some matches have been great.

    Vegas Squadron have been fun to watch so far

    I've never been able to even get hardcore gamer friends to sit down for a whole match of CS:GO. Rocket League thrills everyone-- including people who don't even play games. You can make all kinds of drinking games out of the goals.

    To each his own, I guess.

    Bunch of casuals. I bet they are COD or some other laser noobs.
    CS has been hardcore gamers game since 2001.

    Great event. Can't believe it got so many viewers to say it was just the qualifiers. Don't really love to Swiss format for the real major but I'm still excited for the arena weekend and will be watching it all with a friend or two with the pizza!

    Considering all roster problems, this went better than expected.
    Some fun games, even some great games, some nail biters. I'd say worthy of Major qualifier.

    Looks like schedule will be same as last year, so I can watch only final with buddies due to time zones. If that.

    Pretty interesting 1st day.
    A lot of surprises and blowouts were to teams leaving their bad map in, and getting punished for it, or leaving underdogs good map in.
    Only 2 losing teams got to double digits which is unexpected.

    Best game got decided by 1 HP.



    Looking forward to today's matches.

    Dude, what an amazing day yesterday was. Great games and upsets all around!

    I'm loving the underdog QB beating these better teams!
