I wish csgo was in XGames Austin, CoD was pretty fun to watch.

They get shittalking. When you check some really old mlg halo or cod events they talk so much trash it was fabulous. Back then the price money wasnt that good so bragging rights were still super important for the players because they are and were first of all competitors

Yea watching them get awarded X-Games gold medals made it finally feel legitimate

People who hate MLG don't know how much Adam and Sundance actually care. The things they have done for the growth of esports were massive. Having a dedicated "pro" settings playlist is something even to this day that most games don't do, but seeing that MLG playlist in Halo was a big deal.

Please go on the desk and lead the banter at COD champs next year... would be mad entertaining

Why aren't you on any tournament desks anymore?

Yeah, maybe if they had events in the Midwest, maybe talented players would get the chance to play... MLG presents more opportunities for North American talent.

When they did MLG at X-Games Aspen it was really high quality and I remember the community really liking how they did it.

Adam literally routinely comments on the /r/CodCompetitive subreddit for the past 5+ years, even when it used to average like 10 comments on a popular post. Undoubtedly this company is the best at PR, and not in a shitty way but in a way that works for both the company and the public. When I say comments I don’t mean he participates in general discussion but whenever criticism of MLG or general topics comes up he will pop his head in. Amazing.

went over for it as my first major and still the best fun i've had, hopefully the UK major should be similar if we give it a chance.

MLG was so far ahead of ESL and FACEIT because they've been putting in a ton of work towards events for a really long time. They know what works and what doesn't. And they have some really good people behind the scenes at MLG

Contrast that with the ongoing FACEIT major. I'm not in attendance so cannot speak to the atmosphere there, but watching the stream gives the impression that there is a disconnect between the players, casters, and the audience. There are no sweeping camera shots showing the players on stage in front of a large audience that we've become accustomed to, and in fact no shots of the audience at all, nor any sounds of them cheering. And behind the scenes shots I've seen indicate that the players are in a separate studio. The same goes for the casters and analyzers. I'm not too sure what the setup is but it doesn't have the same feel as any of the previous majors at all. Add to that the plethora of technical issues. I don't know to what extent they're FACEIT's fault, but long network outages in the first few days, as well as extended technical breaks mid game throughout the challenger stage, some lasting over half and hour, certainly doesn't help the viewing experience, and I imagine it doesn't help the players either!

pretty much every tournament is held like this. They don't go in front of a live audience until the single elimination playoffs. It is almost entirely due to the economics of holding the events. They have to rent out these MASSIVE venues, which equates to MASSIVE costs, so they simply cannot afford to hold the entire event on the main stage. Most organizers can only reserve the venues for 3, 4 days max. Especially considering the majors are now nearly 3 weeks long, it would just be entirely impossible to run the entire event on the main stage.

Mark, it's 16 teams in a Swiss system stage where the first 4 rounds of the phase are best-of-1's.. It's basically a ton of back to back matches every day (30 in total) to grind out and weed out.
Mark Taylor (2 months ago)
I see, my bad. I had not previously paid much attention to the challenger stage. Why is that the case and are there not people in attendance?
jrath5 (2 months ago)
Bruh they're not at a stage with an audience yet. Audience is from group stage on. No previous majors had an audience for this stage btw.
Dingle Dangle (2 months ago)
They arent in front of a crowd yet.

MLG Columbus was really well done indeed.

one of the few things that came over from the cod scene that was actually good
jacksonlefteye (2 months ago)
fuckin' a, MLG columbus was great...asked myself this same question about two weeks ago and went to MLG site to realize they'd been bought out by activision/blizz...sad...CSGO could really use their approach
CatnamedMittens (2 months ago)
Major League Gaming would also have been a perfect name for esports, and would probably help major publications and non-fans understand what esports is, without getting stuck in the conversation if esports is a sport.
p col (1 month ago)
Yeah... But Sundance had made it apparent throughout the years he cares more about the money than the orgs, teams, players etc. He made that apparent ten years ago.

The call of duty idea sounds like a great idea. Would be fun to see you in that world at least for a few events

He would fit in so well with the trash talk and the personalities (especially Aches)

I'm afraid you're mistaken. It's not a major, it's an extended technical pause.

+Krzyk Misread your comment, my b
Krzyk (2 months ago)
Yes, I consider Black Ops 2 (2012) as a part of the early 2010s. BO2 is still one of my favorite games of all-time and it revolutionized the esports scene within cod too. I'm saying after Bo2, time period i'd consider the mid 2010s, the franchise has continuously dipped.
ktfjulien (2 months ago)
+Krzyk Not really, Black Ops 2 was the peak of call of duty in almost every way you can think of.
Krzyk (2 months ago)
maybe back in the early 2010s but cod fell off
ktfjulien (2 months ago)
I think so too but interesting place to drop an opinion like that
