it's a joke and everyone knows it

Some people could be serious about those accusations and it doesn't hurt to see Tsquared post once in a while  ;)

One big problem is that Liquid is in group B when they should be C and nV in group D which means that they play Optic in WBR2 when they should play nV since 2/3 are always on opposite sides of the bracket from #1 seeded team.

How are the top 2 in each group matched up in winners bracket round 1?

 

Random OR 1st in group vs 2nd in another group

 

Standard procedure is 1st in Group vs 2nd in a group that wasn't yours, which will be placed on the opposite side of the bracket from you (so you can only meet your groupmate in Winners Finals or Losers)

Nah, they'll definitely random draw the 1 seeds out of groups.

I don't think it's random. I think they're just incompetent. Look at the seeds:

 

1.OG

2. TLiq

2. nV

4. Str8

 

And then:

5. CP

6. Luminosity 

7.Splyce 

 

I'd assume winning EU is the 8th seed so there is:

 

8. Fabe

 

So how are the pools figured out? 

 

Once they hit Pool D, they went back to Pool A and just kept filling out the bracket which means CP is with Optic instead of Str8 etc. 

 

Absolutely incompetent.

True, but at the same time this is how rumors start so i would address it head on if i were him too.

 

The fact is these kind of draws are not unique. They happen in esports and traditional sports all the time.

 

We are extra sensitive about these things rn because of the repeated structural problems over H5s lifespan, but overall i think these groups are good tbh.

Who cares optic is going to win no matter what the pools are.

 

Decent cash on the line for the other positions. And ESL just handled this poorly.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm just excited that FAB and sTw are in the same pool.

 

Well, I was until I heard Tapping couldn't go.

Negatory. Movie Maker can't motion track. 

But I could make this video (and better) in about 10 minutes with Premiere Pro/After Effects so thumbs down for ESL.

I remember complaining last year at Worlds that there should be a live draw. Paper in a hat and someone pick each one out, even for the crowds/viewers purpose. Something else to get excited for, plus then its 100% random. 

 

Guess its just another situation where our opinions aren't listened to.

 

Have you tried our constructive feedback thread? :bman:

Wow that video sucked. We went from those cool Xgames videos to this. Can 343 do anything without it being 1 step forward 2 steps back? EVER??

I would ask why but then I remembered who actually runs this.

Could you inform us? Because nobody actually fucking knows.

 

Never thought I'd say this...but please come back Che.
