Similar skill he says... HA! T^T
except a tournaments idea isn't to "have fun"

It's so they can have a more fair+enjoyable experience by playing against players of a more similar skill level, rather than being matched against high ranked players and having absolutely no hope and getting crushed. And it still has the benefits of seeding; the higher ranked players still play eachother at the end.
It's pretty pointless to discuss now, it's far too late to change anything now but I guess it can be changed for the next tournament.
except a tournaments idea isn't to "have fun"All I'm saying is that the different idea for seeding better caters for the players who are playing to have fun (which I can almost safely say is the majority) while still maintaining the competitive aspect and having the top players play each other in the finals. Better for everyone. I didn't say or imply that fun is a priority and that the idea of a tournament isn't for competition anyways..
it's to play in a competitive nature.
please try get that into your thick head
also, stop complaining about the tournaments structure in this thread. It has already started and this is equivalent to bitching in hindsight. Save it for after it's finished
