They lost 1 series and that's the end of them?

Because the tournament bracket is set up like ****. If Korea loses to NA tonight, the same thing will happen to them.

So, essentially, the first round didn't make a difference to whomever won or not.

Shafted by seeding. It always happens to someone.

They had a bye round,

SEA only lost because they were force to use other countries members they stood no chance.

Meaning Riot didn't let them have TPS member since TPS and TPA ran under the same organization. Which is now Azubu.

They had a bye into the second round, and only a loss in the first round results in a second chance.

It's a weird bracket thing that needed to be done because we had 5 teams instead of some power of 2.

Also, the only places that really matter for anything are 1st and 5th, as the first place region gets an extra slot at worlds for their region, and the 5th place region doesn't get a bye into the bracket stage at worlds.
