BO2's Over BO1's for UK Prem
The ESL UK Premiership was previously a best of 3 format and recently we have been given a spot in the challenger series qualifiers (1st place team). ESL have put their own needs in front of the fans of UK League (there are some) and the teams involved to create a best of 1 SINGLE ROUND ROBIN format.
This means we only play each team on one side in the regular season.This is outrageous as the competitiveness of the league is reduced significantly and the exposure ESL and the teams involved get is lowered too. Not to mention fans see less of their favourite teams.
Could there not be a 2-day broadcast of bo2s? Or even 2 simultaneous streams on the same night? We're sure the LeagueUK channel would be willing to help. The teams involved that created this petition understand that bo3's are not a viable option for ESL due to the broadcast length being too long and the "instability" of our teams (this argument is not so valid since half the league are on contracts now). Bo2's help keep the competitiveness of the league, keeps the teams involved happy, the fans happy and the stream time can be handled over 1 night still.
Please sign if you are against the bo1 format and in favour of this suggestion.
