Sorry for the delay in responding and for the glitch in last night's battles. It appears as though the glitch only affected those in the Lower Playoffs.
As the tier settings were not correct, the battles from last night do not count. There are two options to fix this:
- Lower Playoffs ONLY are cancelled and all players receive 250 gold
- Battles are rescheduled for Friday. Playoff bracket will have a max of 16 teams, to allow all rounds to conclude within one day. Prizes will be paid out per bracket.
The current plan is to go with Option 2. The currently scheduled battles for tomorrow will be cancelled. New playoff brackets for the Lower Playoff will be created and re-scheduled, using the correct tier limits. This will allow all teams to participate, as there is quite a difference between tier III and tier VII.
Again, apologies for the glitch and good luck tomorrow.
If I'm understanding this correctly dance, you're considering screwing the players with both options. We either get less gold than we would have otherwise won, or simply put half of the lower bracket will be removed since you noted a max of 16 teams (Unless there will be multiple Lower Playoffs due to 63 teams being in the lower bracket?).
Isn't it a better choice to just reward players for their versatility and allow them to continue with the exception of giving the players that didn't advance up to the 250 gold reward mark, the 250 gold. I'm just confused with the way the second option is setup due to the wording.
