now if you tell me that bo3 is not a thing for play offs next season, i'll break something
You voted for ID for it to be a Bo1. Lots of people that have been against it since the match did too. It's a change that I would welcome personally now but we'll see what happens (it will add an extra week to the season is the most concerning issue imo). Maybe we Can find a way around that. This season we used all the input we got and some changes were good and some things still need work. Hopefully we can finalize the best format for next season.

just because jbzz got “unlucky” 2 seasons in a row doesn’t mean that everyone should play a potential 2 more mario kart matches so that “the best team wins”

bo3 is objectively better, but I could see why dvp likes bo1
anyways, dropping off of mku is childish and solves nothing

seems like we can't give opinions without being criticized about it nice community
btw teeples it was just a matter of strategy
i know we were underated as hell but everyone knows winning top teams in a bo3 is pretty impossible
Also despair, I prefer french teams and i'm entirely aware about it, but imo competition should be the best team winning most the time

I guess what to take from this then is don't let the community vote on stuff and just do what is objectively better in the staff's eyes. Since teams will admit to voting against what they truly believe in to better themselves (not just pointing out ID solely either. We voted Bo1 since two people would struggle to play at 4pm so we're in the same boat just for another reason). Bo3 is objectively the more fair format as Marc said.

You're talking about votes like when more than 60% of the community wanted 3/4pm EDT and staff decided it was better to have 2/3pm because you noticed that teams had issues playing at 4pm ?

Yeah. The reasonings people gave were better too. Lots of teams had young individuals who had to go to bed or people that work really early whereas lots of people that wanted 2/3 were because they wanted to watch football or dinner. Forfeits/drops have been down the past couple of seasons. Sometimes it's just better for certain things to happen even if the common mass thinks differently which in hindsight is what should've happened for Bo3 over Bo1. (Nothing prevents teams from playing at 4pm btw if both teams prefer that time and that doesn't count as a reschedule if its the same day).

more matches means a larger sample size and a more predictable format. this kinda takes away the fun part of the game if you’re like an underdog or whatever. it’s a handicap for the better team. you might as well just send the top2 teams in the division into finals without any playoff matches 🤣
jbzz got unlucky, the only thing that makes sense is replaying gp3
