What a lucky coincidence, that none of top teams face each other in 1st and 2nd round (except maybe Unity-Wonwokie)  :shifty: :shifty: :shifty:

Anyway, good luck to everyone :)

That's on purpose, it'd be stupid if for example lets say FT knocked Unity out in round one and we'd face Balestra in finals...

I do think however that there should be some switching around.

Then why does ruleset say that Qualifiers are completely randomized, if it's not?

I agree that it's sad to do this to make sure that the finals will actually be good. The worst part is that the 'lesser' teams get knocked out straight away and people want to encourage new players and help new teams grow when they just shove them against a top team in round 1. I'm wondering if the underlying meaning of 'blitz' is how quick new clans disband. Randomised qualifiers should be recorded, then again, who knows if the recording is rigged or not?

After looking at the bracket again, it looks like every quarter of it has 1 top team, 1 complete underdog and 2 decent teams. Were you really that lucky to get it from 1st try?  :shifty:

Ur right, I didn't realise the rules stated randomise but it does.
Should be a redo which is compeltely random.

I'd like a completely random redraw that would be nice, stop some teams getting stomped in 1st round. If smaller teams always get stomped in every tourney they wont stay in warband for long.

This tournament is more serious, seems like its supposed to create a better finals and semi-finals etc... rather than no offence not so good teams getting to the semi or quarters without deserving it.

The next tournament can cater for all players of all skill levels but this one should be fine, it is short anyway right? so after the 5 weeks we can host another more 'fun' tourney.

Which is a perfectly fair statement, HOWEVER, All teams signed up under the curernt rule-format, which clearly states: "1.) Warband Blitz League consists of randomised qualifiers and KO stage." meaning that even if good teams get knocked out, everyone agreed to it by signing up.

If you wanted to be sure that top teams don't face each other before semi-final, then you could have made a 24 teams tournament (if i'm not mistaken, it was possible to get that number of teams), and have 8 top seeded teams go straight into 2nd round. That way most new teams would at least have 2 matches played.
Or have a double elimination. But I doubt ppl here like it  :)

I doubt anyone consider this tournament WNL or ECS level.

That's why it should be streamed rather than recorded.
On top of that being only fair way of randomizing fixtures, it also creates positive hype if done correctly.
