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.
I didn't post it until now because you changed the seeding format at the last second didn't you? I don't expect perfect match ups, but there should be some system to make sure they're not so one-sided there is no point in having the match, like Bauxe vs that 100K guy. I'm not sure what traditional seeding is, but it seems just like it was random. Another idea is to assign every adjacent player from the target on the player pp list a point value, say 20 points for the players next to the target, 19 points of the next two adjacent players etcetera.

I also was thinking about the new free mod rule, doesn't it make it give an advantage for a player who is good at a specific mods? For example a HD or HR player can now choose 2 of their 3 picks on a certain mod, but a DT player has only one DT pick. It seems to me that just having standard freemod would be better.

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
That's a selfish attitude, deprive all other players of fair matches just so the top players can cruise through easily beating their opponents, so they only have to face each other at the end, so there's more suspense or something? Maybe that's your idea of a 'good' tournament, and it may be fun for you, but not for the low ranked players like vawlt pointed out.
But if that's the problem, then what was wrong with my suggestion? Here is a modified version. Everyone get's one fair match, and the all the best players last till the end. Seems like it'd be 'fun' and 'good' without compromising.

Lol are u fukin serious

How fair is it gonna be if the final is like someone rank 100 vs someone rank 100,000 and the rank 100,000 get second place cause you didn't seed the players?

If you didn't agree with running the tournament like this then you shouldn't have signed up in the first place rather than joining and only trying to cause trouble :?

please stop posting


you don't expect marathons to shorten so that fatter people can finish it, do you?

marathons aren't even focused in a competitive aspect




I'd post a giant wall of text to explain the reasoning as to WHY seeding works how it is, but you're more dense than a block of lead, a feminist and a fat activist combined

Shit I have the last game but its 9:30pm local instead of 10:30. Hope I get home on time, depending on how reliable sydney trains are (they always fuck up on me at shittest times). I might just skip movie night tho to make this tourney if worst comes to worst.
