Fair. The reason they decided to do 2 matches instead of 3 was 'cause of the intercontinental matches between US and EU that caused a ton of brawls, as it was impossible to choose a server for the final match. The teams would always win at their local server. Ties were removed as a draw is inevitable with 2 matches. It's far more attractive to do intercontinental matches now. The system ensures that every match is fair and square, and I find the hate undeserved. Kudos to @makmoud98. It's well-documented system / ruleset.
