    Because then there's no bias in the seeding.

    agree with fancy, I really have to try hard to comprehend how someone could think it was a good idea to make this a one day event with the series laid out like this XD?? EU ppl will have to play from like 8pm until 8am, absolute fucking joke.

    lets say that somehow every series goes the full distance of 22mins per game (2min prep, 20min time limit of gates open), 5 games per series, that's 110 mins per series, 10 series, that's 1100 mins, that's roughly just over 18 hours of tournament before the final games, which im assuming is a best of 7 if the rest is 5

    so thats another 154 minutes assuming every game is played in full

    tournament could roughly consist of 21 hours of wsg, thats not even including breaks and interruptions


    good luck with that, yes its very very very unlikely but its still a possibility.


    and if past tcs are anything to go by, there will be a lot of breaks and interruptions, so even if series dont go full distance we're still looking at 16hours+ as a general idea of how long it'll go on for


    unless some teams pull out at the last minute which im betting on anyway

    It's not clear to me what the official times will be since the organizer still hasn't posted anything but multiple series need to be going at once. That's how it's always been in the past.

    I've seen this message by Ripduck posted around in discord, but again it's not clear what the official start times will be since the organizer still hasn't updated the OP:

    [​IMG]

    For example, JCP and GSC play against each other while LSN and RI play against each other at the same time.

    Then, when Momentum and winner of JCP/GSC are playing against each other, SPIT and the winner of LSN/RI are playing against each other at the same time.

    While winner's bracket semifinals is going on, the first 2 rounds of the losers' bracket is going on concurrently.

    There's no reason why LSN and RI shouldn't be playing the first series until after the first series for GSC and JCP is over.

    Everyone still sleeping after the marathon yesterday. I fell asleep with my laptop on before the last game. Kudos to those who played through it and still gave competitive games.

    Idk what the big deal was with the schedule, 24 hours of warcrack, starting at 8pm, is perfectly reasonable for a meth addict.

    How many teams competed?
    How many players?

    Edit: I see the answers to my questions in the edited OP. Thanks.
    I guess no one will be taking advantage of my MVP award again this year. /cry.

    /cheers
