HCS Pro League Fall 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

Tashi said Finals stats would be out to community sites soon. (He said this right after Finals.)

 

It's well past soon.

 

Chattanooga occurred 2 weeks ago.  Stats from it are out.

 

Finals stats are still not out.

 

Maybe he's saving the stats to be posted on his personal twitter :huh:

Not really sure what's up with the format of this PGL Open Circuit.

 

The first Open Cup is set up like every other open cup (single elimination), but has a prize pool equal to a Legendary Cup, and isn't followed by a Legendary Cup. The next week, things go back to normal with Open Cup #2 (SE, no prize pool) and Legendary Cup #2 (DE, prize pool) even though there was never a Legendary Cup #1.

 

:huh:

I would assume that this open cup will set the top 8 automatically advancing into next weeks legendary cup.

Side note: LU Gaming got DQ'd for being 22minutes late. Elevate onto semis

EDIT: They're setting up a lobby now anyway. Think they're going to play it out

:huh:

I haven't checked what's actually been done but surely the top 8 from the first cup get placed instantly into the legendary cup (round of 16) for week 2. No way to choose the 8 teams for the first cup so they just play it right the way through

I'd figure next week's Legendary Cup is just "#2" to keep the numbers consistent with the Week Number.  The Seeding Cup yesterday is essentially the Open Cup, but since there's no previous Top 8, then there's no 8 to be waiting for today's Cup, making today just another Open Cup with the teams properly seeded.

Besides what people were pointing out about automatically getting placed into Legendary, there really isn't time this weekend to have a Legendary cup due to the first placing tournament. Yesterday players had a tournament just to determine seedings for the first Open Cup.

This is out of the blue but watching these Open Cups has me thinking.

 

I really wish that 343 would make Arena rank mean something. League of Legends recently announced they would be inviting 20 amateur players (top 4 in each role) from their Challenger bracket to a specific scouting event. (http://www.lolesports.com/en_US/articles/2016-na-scouting-grounds)

 

Makes me yearn for the days of the combine. If 343 were to announce something like this and either implement duo maximums or party vs. party matchmaking, I'm sure a lot of people would grind the ladder like never before.

I'm listening to some of these Maniac Boomin things Maniac's been posting recently and they're pretty good, which I wasn't expecting
