No they don't. First place had more money than second place, isn't that enough?

16 teams is far more logical than this odd tiered system, particularly when considering when one of the 5 'top regional seeds' randomly got relegated to group stage. If I were Azuba, I'd be really, really pissed now.

Why are the Korean teams the only teams to not have a Regional Bye?

Also, why are teams from the Brazillian server not represented in Season 2 (or Season 3)?

Regional Byes were determined at a live draw during the Korean Finals last night.
