Following the trade of KRiMZ to Fnatic, this meant that Fnatic now has the Major spot. With Minor qualifiers over, Fnatic’s old minor slot went to GodSent. This post isn’t questioning GodSent’s validity of getting the slot, but rather why Minors have invite systems at all?
For most tournaments, I believe invites are better as you want the best teams in attendance. This is different in the case of minors as this is the entry point for competitive CS:GO. This minor had 4 invited slots and 4 qualifier spots. In the case of the minor I’d rather have all 8 be qualifier spots as this is the lowest level in the Majors system.
