Nice seeing that all civilizations are allowed. Unfortunately I don't think the underdogs will be used since they didn't receive tweaks recently

Good afternoon, I wanted to inform you that because we have experienced serious technical problems with the game, the organizers have decided that it is best to postpone our events of this week for a while, until we get a hotfix or an update, in case we resume our events, we will let you know!
Thank you very much and I hope you have a good day.

When making brackets we seed by elo but then we make changes in order to diversify things we didnt want all the pro's playing vs eachother first round
So the numbers in the end are not elo related.

If it's seeded by elo, assuming the pros have reasonably accurate ratings, they shouldnt be facing each other in the first round at all?

@Mitoe Hey Man great too have you apart of the tournament im looking foward to seeing everyone playing especially old names with big history such as your self i hope your not upset about your seeding as 21 we plug in brackets as elo at first then make adaptions/changes too compliment the tournament best we didnt wanna see all pro's playing vs eachother in round 1 or 2 so we tried our best too space you out we just feel that it makes more sense to see you all vs eachother in a bo5+ format thanks again for signing up we are incredibly thankful too have you involved!

Nah, seeding doesn't matter to me. If you intend to win the tournament you have to beat everyone anyway.

It matters if you really care about the prize money, I guess, since better seeding makes it a lot more likely to place in a spot where you get prize money. But I'm not playing for the money :smile:

Tbf it doesn't only matter for the prize money. It's also just frustrating to e.g be #2 and lose in RO16 to the #1, instead of reaching finals and losing there. Besides in finals series you'll get to play more games, which is better to determine who the stronger player is.

@Kaiserklein Yeah we thought it would be frustrating for mitoe too play vs you in ro16 which is the 2nd round when your both some of the best players in the tournament so this is why we start off seeding by elo so we plug you into the bracket in order of elo and then we make changes so we dont have people who should be meeting in finals or semi finals facing in first or 2nd round when the Best of is only 3 or 5 im not sure if you think we did a bad job or what on brackets im always open for opinion but we thought this was the greatest approach and we think that we did a fairly decent job at creating this.
