Cause holy crap. After like..group 15 or so its just groups full of tournament newbies and ninja teams like Turnip the Beet.

I doubt more than 2 or 3 new teams will receive a gold prize, those who do will have earned it. When today's round robin is over we will have 64 remaining teams. They will then have to beat 2 separate teams first to 3 wins on Saturday to even make it to the final 16. Keeping in mind if they don't flawless their bracket they will be playing division winners.

Fighting "Lettuce Turnip The Beet" would be a jewel for the night. To bad it is just one battle :) It would be nice to ammo rack the Turnip.
Conflict do not worry, We will give them little fight ;)

ahaaa. Now I see you guys.

Unfortunately, you can't expect accurate seeding when teams don't use the same team names from tournament to tournament. Until we require teams to use the same names, the seeding has to be essentially random.

I see what you did there.

Won't matter for this tournament, but in the future, you could base it on the team leader regardless of name.

That would mean we have to look up every team individually, which is, quite frankly, impractical.

So if I get this right you can mix the team up with lower tiers, to a total of 32 tier points right?

There actually was no true seeding. We simply separated past tournament winners to ensure none were in the same group.

So when you get the full list, is there some kind of tool that randomizes the teams and puts them in groups?

You'll get your fill of Ruinberg (Encounter) tonight :)

You can always use the opening post in this thread to view tournament details instead of accessing the tournament page.

We're receiving mixed reports on lag. Several teams are indicating no lag at all.
