  1. Do not like. So I assume tomorrow will be the last chance single elim bracket with Champ bracket being Sunday.


    Yeah I bet the single elim bracket will probably be first on stream and then the champ bracket will probably stop at top 4 teams and finish on Sunday. I'm not a fan of it but I haven't been doing events for 15+ years so I'm just going to trust the MLG team and enjoy the weekend.

  2. Do we know how far they’re going to advance the pools today? Will we find out top 2 of pools today or will that be saved for tomorrow? Obviously would be more hype qualifying for worlds with the crowd there.


    If its anything like Orlando they will play 2 matches today and then 1 tomorrow. Granted for Orlando they had to wait until Saturday for the open bracket teams to qualify for groups. But I agree I hope they finish group play tomorrow for the hype factor.

  3. Alright my predictions hopefully they go better than Orlando! 


    Group A- Splyce 3-0, Renegades 2-1, Armada 1-2,  Gosu Crew 0-3


    Group B - Tox 3-0, Oceanic 2-1, Oxygen Supremacy 1-2, Mentality 0-3


    Group C - Envyus 3-0, Elevate 2-1, Lux 1-2, Wise 0-3


    Group D- Reciprocity 3-0, Str8 Rippin 2-1, Top Prospect Clan 1-2, Frya 0-3


    From Champ Bracket - 1)Spylce, 2)Tox, 3)Envyus, 4)Reciprocity, 5/6) Oceanic/Renegades, 7/8)Elevate/Str8 Rippin 


    In the single elimination bracket I'm going with Oxygen Supremacy to get the last spot for Worlds. 


    Also I agree if you go to Columbus and don't go to Thurmans Burgers you are really missing out. Best burgers for sure! 

  4. Just a heads up, most of the times when they do "not random seeded" groups, the groups are like bracket quadrants.


    1-8-9-16, 2-7-10-15, 3-6-11-14, 4-5-12-13.


    I'm not sure what your 1-8-12-16 thing is.




    At any rate, the random-draw-based-off-tier is a superior method in the case of "These Groups Feed a Bracket" (but not "These Groups Qualify You For Worlds and Then Are Useless")


    In the "These Groups Feed a Bracket" time, by having the groups not set up as 1-8-9-16, you can have the groups pre-seed the bracket by having random tiered groups, so you don't have bracket draw rigging accusations, but if you go with 1-8-9-16 group for a seeded bracket, then you basically just have the teams in the same bracket quadrant play each other unless you randomize the bracket.



    I think the way Moses is doing it is he is just putting the worse seeded team from the 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16 seed groups in the #1 seeds pool and so on for the 2, 3, and 4 seeds. 

  5. I don't mind the randomness of a drawing but I understand why the people who have worked hard to get their points/seeds would be upset. I would love for it to be live and then like someone else said have casters analyze the matchups/groups similar to like the World Cup or the NCAA Basketball tournament. Hell they could do it right after the ANZ finals this weekend! I feel like with only 32 teams that the stream won't go as long as planned (It felt like to me the EU streams were ending earlier than planned) and they would have 30-60 minutes at the end to do this. 


    Speaking of Im pretty excited to watch the ANZ qualifier starting tonight. I don't think I will be able to stay up late tonight to watch but Im going to try to watch it all on Friday and Saturday night. Was very impressed by Mindfreak at Orlando and they've dominated the 2Ks so I expect them to win but it will be interesting to see what team gets 2nd and qualifies for Worlds.

  6. I wouldn't be surprised if Rec drop Spartan and bring Rayne in to recreate the Rayne and Penguin partnership that worked so well earlier in Halo 5.


    That would be a terrible move IMO. I don't think Rayne is that great with no AR/New Radar. I just don't see him getting picked up by one of these top 4/6 teams. But I agree if Rec was going to drop someone it would probably be Spartan just because he always seems to be the one who get dropped. 


    As for OG... I do think other teams have caught up to them. I just don't know what change to make on that team maybe Royal 2. I will be interested to see what happens in Columbus in a month. I think maybe they just took too much time off after Denver and just weren't really back into the full swing of things. They made a few too many misplays that we normally don't see out of them this tournament. 


    Also for everyone that cares... Ninja was up to 99K viewers at one point but it quickly dropped back down to about 90K.  Andddd now he is up to 106K. 

  7. Also, @@Wonderboy and @@Infinity should be hired for every event. 


    Best observer/spectating I've seen and has genuinely elevated this broadcast so greatly.


    Infinity for sure. But I'd love to have Wonderboy casting as well. I think he is a great caster. But I am happy to see he finally gets to be a dedicated observer. Hes been wanting to do it for as long as I can remember. 


    GGs to NV though. I think give this team time and they will be even better. 


    So hyped for the grand finals really want a bracket reset.
