Please oh Please use a streaming format that allows viewers to turn down the video quality!

NA Regionals were unwatchable in their live-stream format.


Thanks!

Totally right. The teams that won their regionals should get nothing out of that and should have to win just as many games as the teams that took 2nd and 3rd.

Hell with this mindset, we might as well get 4 from each region, flip a coin, 2 winners flip again for 1st and 2nd and the 2 losers flip for 3rd and 4th!!!! Byes are a reward for winning yor region. There is nothing wrong with them, and actually should be used more!

Again, not a random drawing. All 4 teams with byes won their respective regional tournies. The only one that won, that didn't get a bye is Frost, and i believe that is because they don't have as many teams in the OGN league as are in the other ones. But i am not positive!

Group A:

Frost takes 1st. 2nd goes to either CLG.NA or SK. Could go either way.

Group B:

CLG.eu takes 1st, Najin Sword takes 2nd.


For an ultimate championships (biggest event ever in prize money), single elimination is a bit disappointing.

The three favorites are CLG.eu, M5, and Frost, possibly in that order. If M5 wins this, even if they never play CLG.eu at all, I don't think any CLG fanboys can still call CLG the better team, even though they would still hold a winning head to head of 4-2 in LANs. "Better" is not decided by a single head to head against one team, but on how well they do against all other teams overall. You also have to beat lesser teams, not just each other, to be considered the better team. M5 has never lost a match (best of one, or best of three) to any team other than CLG.eu.
