I don't understand. Why were they on the same side of the bracket? They need to figure out the seeding so this doesn't happen again.
They were already seeded 1 and 2, but Astralis went 3-1 and Liquid 3-2. If both teams had held their seeding and gone 3-0, then they would meet in the final. Or even 3-1, but Liquid sucked this Major. They lost BO1s against both NRG and Avangar. They deserved to get dunked on by Astralis. Completely outclassed.

People who complain about the rules are way off. It’s already easy for the top teams. Valve shouldn’t make it even easier for them. Both Ence and Vitality had an easy road to the semifinal and final and they both fucked up. It would be laughable to change the rules to help them even further.

The other top teams just need to git gud against the lower seeded teams.

Weren't they supposed to show the new Cache at this Major?
What's it replacing? I'd assume they don't want to ditch Vertigo since it just got redone, and Mirage, Dust2 and Inferno are just too popular, which leaves Overpass, Train and Nuke. Nuke just got redone last year and you no longer have one team that never loses on it, so I figure it stays. Train has been a pretty consistent veto for a lot of top teams recently, and I'd much rather watch matches on Overpass than Train. So hopefully it's Train that gets the axe.

There is no map ‘too popular’ when they moved a map like Dust2 out of the map pool once. I would guess Mirage will be out.
