The broadcast talent of the Boston major was announced on the same day as the preliminary group stage. The major was streamed in various languages across Twitch.
Several problems arose from the Major. The most common complaint was that the announcement of the Major was announced so late that several players were not able to obtain visas to their Minors or the Major itself.
In addition, Valve did not allow coaches Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu of TyLoo and Wilton "zews" Prado of Team Liquid to have their own stickers despite peacemaker standing in for Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand, who had visa issues, and zews standing in for Lucas "steel" Lopes, who had to sit out due to rules regarding roster locks.
In addition, peacemaker left TyLoo beforehand to become the coach of the Danish organization Heroic. Another big complication in the Major were the aforementioned the rules on roster locks.
Valve said that the tournament organizers, not Valve, were responsible for the rules on roster locks, and ELEAGUE rules stated that players that competed in any Minor or the Americas Minor closed qualifier cannot compete on a team that would participate in the Major.
The roster locks themselves were not the issue; the main issue was why the roster locks were placed months in advance of the major. Most of the community and players were dissatisfied with the situation.
Journalist Richard Lewis, who worked as the host for ELEAGUE at the time, said in one of his podcasts with Duncan "Thorin" Shields that roster locks are necessary in order for teams to not make changes before the Major to benefit them for the tournament.
In the New Champions stage, the continuing argument of why the fourth quarterfinal series was played on the same day as the two semifinals was asked, as the first team in the second semifinals was much more rested than the second team in the semifinals, who only had a few hours of rest.
Out of the seven Majors in which the fourth quarterfinal match was played in the same day as the semifinals, the winner of that quarterfinal lost five times in the semifinals.

After a strong first half, the Turks of Space Soldiers failed to deliver in the second half. Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev turned up in the second half to end the game with 29 kills and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev had Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov lead his team with 16 kills and Savelii "jmqa" Bragin lead his team in player rating, but not a single player on QBF's side got over the 1.
Flash Gaming surprised G2 Esports early with a lead, but G2 only allowed two rounds afterwards as the French avoided the upset thanks to Richard "shox" Papillon performing well for the first time in a while and Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt supporting with 21 with Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro getting some impact kills late into the game.

Renegades came into the major as the hottest team in the challengers stage while Rpk was in the best form of his Global Offensive career with ScreaM also returning to good form.
However, a massive misplay from the French side game Renegades the momentum to close the game out. Renegades showed that teamwork played off better than individual performance as Keith "NAF" Markovic's 21 kills and Noah "Nifty" Francis's 20 aided in the process.
The first elimination match of the major proved to be a close one, as EnVyUs nearly blew a lead as QiFang "Karsa" Su's team nearly brought it back.

Vega Squadron was part of another close match and came out on top over a handicapped Liquid. FaZe dominated Na'Vi thanks to rain being aggressive with 27 kills, compared to flamie's 5 kills.
Sprout took a strong five round lead into the second half, but Renegades' defense was too formidable as Sprout got zero rounds on its Terrorist side.
EnvyUs's star player Rpk played in the third day of the major, but he was fighting a suspected bout of pneumonia and had to sit out of the rest of the tournament.
The rematch of the CIS Minor finals. After the conclusion of the first day, ELEAGUE and Thieves, the runners-up of the last major, announced that the Brazilian roster would not attend due to immigration issues.
The two teams with the easiest schedule from the three would face off in a best of one and then the winner of that match would go on to face off against the team that had the hardest schedule.
The strength of schedule was determined by which how many wins the teams' opponents got. In the event in which the strength of schedule is the same, the tie breaker would be the head-to-head game.
If the teams never played, then a random draw would take place. Jame went stale against the Americans, but buster and qikert were able to step up to shoot down Liquid.
