Quit this pointless discussion.
I already told fartownik that this exchange is invalid.

Losing brackets raise the workload exorbitantly (especially for schedulers). Groupstage offers enough long matches for everyone to compete.

Korea's line up looks as strong as we always were. Go Korea!

5-2. Selection out of mod-specific brackets is limited. Each captain can only select one map from each mod-restricted bracket during match. So each team can pick 1 HardRock, 1 Hidden and 1 DoubleTime map during match.
The rule changed? It shouldn't be only 1 mod for each team at group stage(2 for each team at knock-out stage)?

It changed because matches are now Bo7 instead of Bo5.

9. The teams can exchange only one player per map during matches.
This rule is also supposed to be changed to two players per map.

I doubt there is any use for multiaccounts during tournaments since commentated (hurray for self-advertisement) streams will be up so people can just watch that instead of just spectating people.

Teams can schedule themselves they don't really need some guy to schedule for them. Schedulers are only needed when 2 teams can't agree@when to play. There should be no problem at all. You seriously should add a loser bracket. If you still think it is way too complicated because schedulers and shit, just add 1 more scheduler to sit on his ass just in case.

If you don't add this then good luck, ranks will be pretty much defined by chance and it's even possible that the final match won't be interesting at all (inb4 JP plays against KR on top 8, which is possible). Loser bracket solves lots of problems and that's why it's used in any big tournament. If you want to be as good as possible, then add this.

If it's about the tourney being longer, yeah it's gonna be 1 or 2 weeks longer, not that anyone will really mind since OWC #2 is pretty much still running.

If it's about streaming, then no, you're just wrong, not every match's gonna be streamed because some may stack, streamers may be busy/because of time-zone reaons they may be unable to stream, etc.

Any con you can think about is out-balanced by pros, loser bracket makes the tournament way more interesting and also somewhat eliminates the chance factor. Plus, group stage has nothing to do with this, they are unrelated. Only reason group stage exists on tourneys like this is because it gives a chance to lots of teams to actually play and have fun, rather than losing on the first round and that's it.

Match schedulers will schedule every match after talking to you. There won't be exceptions. Stop naggling about it.

I'd join this if there is going to be difficulty brackets. I'd join a 4 - 4.5 star bracket

Erm... No offense, but this is a world cup. The best players are playing here; do not expect Easy/Normal/Hard maps.
