So wait, 8 teams get to just skip the first round based on their multiplayer rank? Would have been nice to know ahead of time :rolleyes:

Agreed, we should've been more upfront about the seeding method, but it was only decided two days ago. We should've planned more ahead, but really couldn't do much without the sign-ups closing first.

Besides, we have plans for an actual league, so seeding like this will probably be once in a lifetime. Hope this doesn't set you back too much. I'm quite envious, you have potentially more matches.

Yeah, we didn’t make it clear enough when the deadline was going to be. We extended it another week, it should be updated on the spreadsheet.

Me and Apple Burner are out due to conflict in the team and Apple Burner refusing to play.

Yeah, due to a short time between sign ups closing and start of the season, we extended week 1 (the Upper bracket round 1 matches) by a week. Us coordinators agreed from the start of scheduling that Christmas week was gonna be an off-week, so week 2 will as stated start on the 31st of December and a normal schedule of 1 week per round until end will follow
