Faruk “pita” Pita is in the Counter-Strike scene since 2009 and since then, he played for teams like fnatic, SK Gaming, Team Dignitas and more. Currently, he is coaching for Ninjas In Pyjamas. In the other hand, Australian former player Chad “SPUNJ” Burchill has known for his success with Renegades. At the moment, he is an analyst for many tournaments. On 20 June, Pita criticizes the format of tournaments and SPUNJ joined the critique.

Pita said:

“How can the system used by @ESL and @DreamHack still be a thing? 3/8 teams advancing per group? With one advancing straight to the semis? The scene is so stacked rn. From a competitive POV I don’t get it. Seems like the feedback we gave a year ago in Dallas got lost somewhere..”

SPUNJ replied:

“how many days do you want these tournaments to be?”

pita said:

“Weren’t you around a couple of years ago when it was perfectly fine with 8 teams advancing to playoffs under a week?”

SPUNJ said:

“We don’t do 4 best of 3s in 1 day anymore. It’s too much for everyone. The staff, the viewers at home, the fans in the arena. It’s too much CS, it’s not physically digestible. And all you guys do is bitch and moan, you don’t want to play 2xbo3 in 1 day for the arena.”

SPUNJ continued:

“We can’t do 2x semi and grand final on a Sunday cos players complain. If you can’t qualify for the playoffs you can’t qualify. It’s as simple as that. How many chances do you guys want? Seriously look at things from the bigger picture for once.”
