The group stages were set up in a way which created these on purpose. They could have easily put FNC and SSW in the same bracket. They chose this because it ensures SSW or SSB makes it to the finals.


That's really not how it works. There was no favoritism. It was based on performance per region.

For example. C9 won NA.

So they were head of group D, this now means that they will try to NOT make the same nationality team n one group. So TSM and C9 will be in different groups to ensure that at least one NA team has a fair chance to go forward.

The last spot in group D is from LAN/Brazil.

The 2nd and 3rd spots are 2nd place in Europe, so like i explained in previous post, winners vs losers. As well as the 2nd place in Korea/China.

Most brackets in sports are seeded this way, it is all based on performance throughout the entire seasons.

If they make the most money off of KR then they would have put the two Samsung teams on the opposite sides so they would stomp all the competition and play each other in the finals.

Why would Riot rig the tournament so the finals were anti-climactic?

Samsung blue and white should be in the separate bracket. The fact that the two best teams according to the group stage are in the same bracelet is really retarded and is not fair.
