Stuff like this is why NA is the weakest region. Barely anyone putting effort into the game anymore.
Don't sugar coat it. NA has been bad since forever. We simply lack truly dedicated/motivated skilled players.

I shouldn't of made it this far because I've been playing like shit recently, only reason I made it this far is because two players that I would've played forfeited.

We understand that you're upset that you didn't make the cutoff for the tournament until after it started. We understand that you would have been committed and dedicated to the tournament. But it's what happens, there's nothing we can do with a fair drawing, and there's always next year. You're rising quickly and you'll be more prepared by then anyways.

Please stop being pretentious about it.

It's a joke post, mate. I thought it would be funny to apologise for things of which I am not a part.

stuff came up in my life; dropping out.

btw in case anyone doesn't remember from that stream schedule I posted a few weeks ago. This Round is LB only.

Match DV of the loser bracket needs to be finished before next round. Next round is the grand final round.
(Grandfinal round starts August 1st)

Also I will be gone this weekend. Yoda is in charge while I'm gone.

EDIT: Grandfinals mappool should be up soon.

I don't think there should have been a loser's bracket in the first place, honestly. Once a few people dropped out of it there was a serious lack of interest to try and progress in it. Not to mention that I personally was discouraged from playing in it after hearing how long the matches were taking to play out. I could make plenty of excuses for not playing but with the sheer amount of people dropping out it really makes me insist that there shouldn't have been a loser's bracket in the first place.

There shouldn't be any lack of interest in competing in the lower bracket. Only 1 player doesn't make it to the lower bracket, and the 2nd grand finalist is the winner of the lower bracket. That gives everyone another chance to come back and win the whole thing. Double elimination is simply far superior than single elimination. No one wants to be eliminated because of 1 bad game. If people hadn't dropped out and had actually cared enough to schedule their matches properly, we could've had a really nice set of lower bracket matches. Many competitions/sports/Esports that follow this double elimination standard have players/teams that win the whole competition from the lower bracket (some even from losing their first match).

That all said, double elimination (for no good reason) isn't working due to lack of interest as many have pointed out, which is truly unfortunate.

I wouldn't be surprised if future NATs forgo the lower bracket due to poor player mentality.

I agree with Yoda, double elimination is a much better way to run the tourney, everyone gets that one bad game and can still compete, more matches to follow, I think it's way better.

However after seeing just how few people wanted to continue or even didn't play their first match, it was pretty clear that it just wasn't going to work and probably should've been scrapped earlier, but now it's probably too late and we've just got to power through with the remaining few players. It'll really be a shame if next year goes back to single elimination because of this.
posted
The double elimination allowed some players to have a second chance, and allowed them to show their actual skills.
KevEz lost his first round but he is still in the game in the losers bracket. Death was sick and did not play his best but he ended up ahead of me. It would have been a waste for some amazing players to go just because they didnt have a good round.
I think double illumination was a great idea, however some players just did not have the interest to keep playing just because they lost once. I honestly think some who dropped out had a good chance of winning. Hopefully next time people will have the motivation to keep playing after losing and make this tournament a lot more exciting (not that it isnt right now)
