Team Spirit Players Share Their Thoughts on MR12

Team Spirit players have had their say about the most talked about topic in the Counter-Strike scene right now; the introduction of MR12


The Team Spirit squad has provided insights into their views regarding the MR12 match format, which is slated to become a part of the competitive scene following the launch of Counter-Strike 2. The players' comments were posted on the Dragons' social media profiles.

What Do Team Spirit Players Think About MR12 In Competitive CS2?

The team's emerging talent, Danil “donk” Kryshkovets, holds a strong conviction that MR12 will bring adverse consequences to the professional scene.

“The introduction of MR12 in CS2 will only make things worse. More randomness, less spectacular. It will also affect the majors, and maybe the underdogs will win more often because of it. Personally, I don't like this format, MR15 is imbalanced.”

Myroslav “zont1x” Plakhotia thinks that the developers aim to inject more dynamism into the game but remains undecided about whether these changes will be advantageous for Counter-Strike in the realm of esports.

“The MR12 format will make the games shorter and therefore more dynamic. There will probably be some changes to the economy. I can see that with these changes the developers are moving towards dynamism and speed, which is certainly good for the audience and casual players, but it's still unclear how it will work on the pro scene.”

Unlike his younger teammates, Spirit veteran Boris “magixx” Vorobiev sees the introduction of MR12 in a positive light. He specifically pointed out that tournament organizers, especially at Majors, can now steer clear of BO1 matches.

“I think MR12 is a useful update because every round's value will be higher and people will tend to make less stupid mistakes. Majors… In case Valve leave BO1 matches as part of the majors, then MR12 will bring more randomness. But on the other hand – because the games will be faster, it is reasonable to play all BO3 games and use BO5 in the semi-finals and finals, for example. Which format do I like more? I don't know, I've never played fewer rounds.”
