Hello dear participants,

 

according the amount of registered teams (81) there will be some changes in the Group Stage's brackets:

 

Group Stage (Single Elimination system): 81 teams, 10/11 teams per group (8 groups). Within the group, teams are matched according to the "strongest against weakest" principle. Battle format: Bo3. The Group Stage lasts for two days. The top 8 teams from each group advance to the next stage. For the precise schedule of matches, refer to the game client.

 

Wish you the good battles!

Dear players!

 

As you can see the bracket for the second stage was changed.

We fixed a seeding issue which was detected when we created bracket from the 1st stage to 2nd with a seeding type "strong-weak". We've made a manual seeding and fixed this issue. Now the seeding for the 2nd stage is fair for all teams and groups.

 

Also you may see that some groups display incorrect (teams duplicate twice in the group). We are working on fix.

This seeding is garbage.

4 of the groups (2, 4, 6,and 8) have no good clans in them, so clans that are terrible compared to others will qualify for the professionals tournament even though many of the teams that will be eliminated from groups 1,3, 5, and 7 are multiple times better.

 

I don't see how this is "fair" for any team when 4 teams who don't deserve to win are going to qualify because of these awful groups only to get stomped by the 4 teams who won in the difficult groups in the actual tournament.

Half of the teams that will qualify for the professionals tournament are 50% teams.. How is this going to create any good video content when the matches are streamed and there is no level of competitiveness between the 2 teams playing,  Video content will not be fun to watch when teams that have gone to twister and vegas are up against 50% teams and the match itself has absolutely no competition, excitement or intensity. The entire tournament should have been setup the way it was advertised. "Groups for the second stage will be created based on the results of the 1st round". This should have meant that 2 teams who finished 1st place in their respective group stages should not be playing against one another for the second group stage... I have no clue what the motivation for the reshuffling was, maybe it was to encourage some of the other teams to be more competitive? If so, maybe you should just give them better prizing for the earlier group stages... Otherwise I am absolutely speechless, I think that the new groups and the teams that qualify from those groups will get destroyed in the actual tournament itself. I dont know about anyone else, but i do not enjoy watching videos/streams of teams getting destroyed, since I can already do this in the normal pub matches in the game :)

The sole purpose of streaming top level competitive matches is for viewers to enjoy the intense, exciting and close matches between the best of the best. This purpose has been completely defeated by the reshuffling of the groups by allowing half of the participants of the tournament to be 50% teams.

Thank you! This is absolutely garbage. Teams would have been better off losing all games in the group stage. This is ridiculous that teams that topped their groups are facing other teams that topped their groups

I don’t think giving the teams that never practice a single hour in a training room as a team a free ticket to the “Professionals” tournament is fair for the teams that work their [edited] off day after day in tournaments.

There is 100% no incentive for teams to win any matches in the group stage using the logic, WG has presented them with. What is the purpose of even winning your matches, if you are to placed in a group full of solid teams, when you can lose all your matches and get put into an easy group? Free camos and rewards for the losers of the group stages!!

I am genuinely curious about the logic behind this decision. By fixing the "issue" that made groups "strong-weak" in Qualifiers, you've created this same issue in Professionals Tournament. You'll have 4 dominant teams and 4 weak teams in Professionals. That brings me to the next question. What was the point of the games on March 11th and March 12th? What significance did they bring to these Qualifiers? 

 

Instead of motivating lesser skilled clans to become better, they are given a free ticket to a tournament and are shown that "It's okay if you aren't as good as the top clans, you'll still make it into the 'Professional' tournament and get participation trophies." Kind of defeats the purpose of Qualifiers and the whole tournament, no? Are the best of the best not meant to play against each other at the end?

why do you appreciate this change? It's a slap in the face to all the teams who ranked 1st in their respective groups, and is a free pass to clans who played atrociously and now have easy brackets. Confused as to why you think this is positive and/or deserving of appreciation...

I'm genuinely confused about how teams that are 0 and 4, 2 and 4 are even making it out of the group stage... What's the point of even trying last weekend if you're guaranteed to advance. And lets not forget the times of these matches... I don't mean to sound brash, but shouldn't the teams that finished 1st or 2nd in the group stage advance to the final group stage? Or you could even do the top 3 teams, since their was a 3rd place game. 16 or 24 teams advance, if it's "seeded" then it's pretty easy. 1 v 24 or 16, 2 v 23 or 15, 3 v 22 or 14 and so on. How are the teams seeded? Win rate?

I never said anything about the change? I said that “we are appreciative of the hard work they do”. Meaning the opportunity to even play in a tournament like this. We could be like Asia and not even have tournaments, so YES... I am appreciative of their hard work.

But to my point about the change, do you honestly think that this switcheroo by WG was an intelligent decision?
