Thought I'd make a dedicated thread for it to discuss, post memes, and also just to inform people who are not in on it.

Things to know:
- This is a CS:GO Major, meaning it's a large CS:GO tournament that's backed by Valve. These happen three times a year.

- This is the largest prize pool for a single CS:GO tournament to date, coming in at $1,000,000. (Excluding sponsorships and other player team proceeds)

- Winning team gets $500,000, second place gets $150,000

- This is the first Major in NA. (North America) NA is notorious for having a small presence in the professional CS:GO scene. (Historically dominated by EU teams)

So far:

As of writing this post, we're about to go into Day 2 of the tournament.
Yesterday, half of the quarter finalists were determined. 
Today, the 8 teams who didn't come out on top of their group are going to have to battle it out.
Losers will go home, winners will be placed in the quarter final.

 

The big surprises so far have been:
Fnatic (who have won two out of the last three majors) losing against Team Liquid on Dust2, putting them in the losers' bracket against FaZe today.
 

 

My opinions:

I'm rooting for Mousesports to defeat NIP, because I would love to see a Dutch player (ChrisJ) in the quarter finals of a major.
No one really expects FaZe to stand a chance against Fnatic, but the same was said about Team Liquid, so I'm going to keep my FaZe hype.

LG WIN!

I had 10 euros riding on them. :D

About this event's organizer: MLG, I have to say I'm pretty pleased on the whole.
Their way of getting relevant information to the viewer is 8/10 and definitely way better than ESL or Dreamhack.

Their commercial breaks were scarce, short, and informative in terms of bracket, schedule and standings.
All of the events were hosted at times appropriate for most relevant timezones.

 

I'm a bit divided on their choice of music though; the instrumental rock/metal played on breaks or on victories.

Although it's a refreshing new take, I felt it was a bit inappropriate, especially when LG took the victory it felt extremely out of place.

I'm so happy to see dust2 die off more and more every tournament.
