Yesterday, 23:24 PMCoH will never die
A top-matchup in round 3 could also bring a caster, streamer, youtuber to pick up and cast that match. It´s a bit sadly, that this huge tournament with an indrecible amount of top-players will only be casted when the finals began. Giving a reason to cast some matches earlier could be a good thing. It´s not about taking the best pieces and make yourself more famous and popular. It´s about supporting the tourney and the players at all. Things can´t grow, if people pick only one game to cast or even talk about.
I don't understand this. Are you saying that would-be top-seeds matching up too early could be a good thing because a youtuber or streamer might cast the game from a round that they wouldn't have touched otherwise? That's not a good reason to knock a possible finalist out of your tourney in the Ro16, particularly when it's a money tournament that pays multiple places. If you're gonna run single-elim, the seeds are very important (if it was double-elim, much less so).
When you say "It´s not about taking the best pieces and make yourself more famous and popular," who is the "yourself" in this statement?
This is an understandably tough bunch to seed as many vet players are returning after not having played for a long time. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that you seeded it at all!
Should be a pretty interesting event.
