I noticed that there are 2 games per time slot, will every game be casted on Twitch or will some people miss out?
That is if any game is casted.

streaming/casting round 1 would be chaos

seeding works by placing the top skilled players into different brackets, so they won't play each other until the near finals.
I know how a tournament works. its just unfortunate that a "good tournament" is favored over a fun one.
how is this any different than playing normally and having a rank, other than this being real time?

A good tournament can translate to a fun one. I'm sorry you can't feel the same.

5 digits vs 3 digits is not fun.

This tournament is aimed to find out who are the best aus/nz players in multi. If you wish to have a fun tournament that is aimed for low ranks only, feel free to organise one! This is a competitive tournament where skill matters as much as having fun, sorry if it can't cater to everyone's expectations.

There is no point in matches where one player has no chance to beat the other. Why can't we cater to everyone and make sure everyone can have fun by seeding it so that people are matched roughly against people of their own skill level? There is no reason why we can't work out a fair system in which this is the case. This is what I suggested last tournament for example https://i.ppy.sh/9bce8b1909

I have not been given access to the stream client yet, but if I get it, I will try to stream most games. It is unlikely the games will be casted until round 3.

Looking at the graph I posted here, you will notice that roughly 70% of all players are between 3000 and 5000pp. These matches in round 1 shouldn't be too one-sided. With such a range of skill levels, it's very hard to have a format that caters to all the outliers. I'm really not sure how your suggested format would be implemented given that we only have 8 players below 3000pp, and even their range of skill levels is quite high. Also, any objections with the tournament format really should have been raised earlier when the thread was first posted, as it is far too late to change anything at this time.

because that's not how tournaments work



a 5 digit rank will pretty much have no chance of winning. I don't see your logic in allowing them to play other low ranks as more deserving players are being knocked out earlier.

seeding is a means of avoiding scenarios like these.




as for your suggestion, this is basically the same as a low rank tournament with its own prize which could be hosted by somebody else

I don't think I've played any of the maps in this mappool with their respective mods. Is there a mappack?

So I had a bonfire in my room the other day, and the source of the fire was my computer. Not to worry though, I had to down grade to the old computer that I'm struggling to get used too.

Yes, I will still be able to compete. It's just going to be a bitch. My computer is also in for repairs right now, don't know how long it will take though...

Edit: Just got my computer back and now it's BACK in the shop getting looked at again. Since the god damn performance of it was shit. Freezing and black screens were too strong. So now I'm back on the shitty old one again and will more than likely have to stay on it until next week. T^T

Lets be really fucking honest here. If QLD has daylight savings there wouldn't be an issue in the first place Everything would just be normal and on the same timezone.
