Except if it's double elim, the advantage is that the LB team has to beat them twice while the WB team only has to win 1 series. 

Yes to both of these and when that's the case I'm fine with it. I'm more opposed to the X-Games(halo) or TI style where the finals is a single series where the team that advanced from the WB has no advantage.

An analysis was done in smash and the player from winners bracket won 79% of the time. Thats a statistical advantage. 

Also winners get an advantage. You have to play MORE matches in losers. Thats more of a chance to lose. Thats winners advantage. 

 

Also if you didnt meet, i believe you started 0-2? The loser team could win be better than winners team at 6/11 maps and end up losing depending on the rng of gametypes chosen. 

 

Tho i do agree that map/gametypes shouldnt be set in a bo11/7. There should be a veto and counterpick system like smash.

Ahhh OK, that makes more sense.  For that type of a situation then I agree on continuation, but for the vast majority of esports nowadays double-elim is the traditional style where you have to beat the WB team twice.

I mean, thanks, but I'm saying they should be in the first post. It's said "coming soon" for months now. How would I or anyone else even find that link.

If there was easy access to the full, confirmed rosters, we would update the OP.  But honestly, there's no reason to spend the time to track down every team name, player, and qualifier rankings when they were changing so rapidly over the last couple months.

If you want to take the time to put together the roster lists and rankings, feel free to do so and I'll update the OP with the information.

There won’t be an accurate list of rosters/teams until check in. I guarantee that there are some of those rosters on that list that will have last minute changes due to shade/people no showing. Relax your toxic levels a little bit.

2. status quo - flamesword, ace, assault, neighbor
3. denial - aries, str8 sick, shele, commonly
4. golden modem squad - fantazy, gabriel, zurka, goofy

To the best of my knowledge, Fantasy isn’t going.

Safe travels to any and all heading out to UGC. 

Just wanted to post a quick PSA as the soft, sentimental young man that I have become - everyone enjoy this weekend. Enjoy it to the absolute fullest.

If someone had told me that there would be Halo 3 tournaments in 2019, I would have never believed you. The motivation I have had to watch and follow Halo again has made me feel like a kid again - a feeling which I never thought would resurface.

These are times we may never get back again. Enjoy every second of it. Meet new people and create new friendships - or meet people from the forums and bring that friendship to a new level. Sit back and enjoy the gameplay - go bananas for the big plays. Be proud of the moment and take it all in.

Let's have a god damn weekend everyone.
