EncreDavidTheWinWorth noting that this is an intentional delay. What kind of bullshit is that, people have planned to watch this. Most Australians and New Zealanders have work/uni/school tomorrow morning so theres most of us not able to watch this game which we thought would be happening now.

Dang not the Aussies and New Zealanders they might make up a whole 2% of viewership.

Real talk: if the point of the delay is to increase viewership, anything that benefits the US, which makes up a third of twitch traffic, will most likely increase viewership.

Last year the problem was that we couldn't delay the games to have a hype last day for players and spectators, and this year people have a problem with delaying the match for those exact reasons... I understand that it sucks for those of you that aren't able to stay up and watch the game, or those that organised their other commitments around a schedule. But the reality is that not only are these kind of delays almost expected when it comes to gaming tournaments, but as long as they are designed to ensure the best possible finals series can you really argue that you'd rather a little convenience for yourself?

Instead of focusing all our energy ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ on worrying about the schedule, why don't we focus on what is hopefully going to be an amazing repeat of the UB final in a few hours time? :~)

Let's hope for the swedish guy that at the end of the day he's changed his path!

AlkalineI scheduled my volunteer time around this, and now I have to leave 1.5 hours. It's understandable to want more viewers, but if you have a set schedule and you have the opportunity to keep it, you should.

This really fucks some people over and leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I've been busy all weekend volunteering and I set aside time specifically to watch the Grand Final this morning. Now I'm just fucked. :(

I've since learned that this break also gives the production team a much needed breather. Admittedly, It probably will also bring in more viewers. As sad as I am that I won't be able to watch the most hyped match pretty much ever, if it's good for TF2 than it was the right decision, and I'm glad of that.

It's time for Zebbo to finally win something.

Hope we get a way better final than at i52 though, no matter who wins in the end.

I think the most ignored benefit of this delay so far is sideshow getting to rest his voice. I hope he's off sipping on some hot water and manuka honey right now to get his voice silky smooth for the final. (protip vocalists use, also tastes nice)

Gonna be a balls as day tomorrow at work tomorrow but the grand final is going to be sick as so I'm super keen. Go zebbo.

I'm just nipping to the shops to get some snacks for the GF. Please don't bring forward the start of the match by half an hour so I miss the first map.

Match is still scheduled for 4 BST, we might go live a little before that so you can listen to WARHURYEAH drone on and on and on in his monotone voice.

I had changed my shift to allow me to watch the grand finals at 7 this morning, now that it's delayed I'm about to start my later shift and now can't watch the GF's.

Thanks Obama

a close international bo5

i guess the only thing i could ask for now is for mix^/iM to come to the next i-series, bo3 group stages, and a 1 million dollar prize pool but this might be the best i-series ever when it comes to the actual matches.

We had some close series at i52 but nothing quite like this. Let's get the best damn Grand Finals yet.

quite late to point out but I'm glad that you considered all the previous year feedback about finals when people weren't happy about bo3 and such short final, kudos for that

This was already answered multiple times. Tf2 is not being played on the main venue but on an outside tent, so theres not a main stage
