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.

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.

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.

We'll think about the loser bracket from round of 16.

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.

I am dissapointed in you konacraze22. Not because you want other brackets, but simply because you do not bear the Signature of Team JB.

I am so dissapointed.
