It seems that this tournament will be occurring during the same timeframe as the HL finals
Lots of tournaments = nice
All matches in one day = not as nice

screw the HL finals...you want to be there for GR tourny ..trust me
good luck to HL finalists though :P
I'll miss you both, but than again, I'll be casting your match so...
poor brackets... unless a big fail we expect to see QuC vs FFS at least (and a catch up points prize to QuC for GR ladder, they deserve to be in the top 5).
Brackets are now up here.
Yeh, we are missing quite a lot of teams this time around, and having a prime number of clans makes the brackets look messy. Still, I don't think there is a better way of arranging it.
I just hope we don't get the same amount of clans not showing as we did last time, or round1 may as well not exist at all.
the brackets are done just fine. unless by 'poor' you mean not too many good teams.
FFS should make finals easy, PSP/NrB vs QuC will be a good one imo.
Any 'big fail' will involve the 'underdog' team picking sandwraith+turtle.
How does QuC 'deserve' to be top 5? No tourney wins, no wins against any top 5 team in tournaments. Beating bad teams up until you play a good one and losing by a landslide doesn't mean you're successful.
2nd GR tourney QuC plays randoms until finals, loss to 143 wasn't close.
3rd GR tourney QuC beats pokerstars+5, beating pokerstars means little. that was their one and only competitive HoN game. Team 5 now and Team 5 then are completely different.
4th GR tourney The only team notable QuC beats is PSP and they've yet to place well in anything. Loss to FFS, not close.
Fnatic tourney QuC's only notable opponent is trn(same boat as QuC imo, a lot of credit for 'good' tourney placements, but beats no one good)- QuC plays 'team ringer'(Team 5+friends mix) loses bad.
HoNLeague tourney only notable opponents are smf(suave gaming) and they didnt participate / place well in any tournament. they lose to WHP, not close games. yes they win 1 game but refer to
"Any 'big fail' will involve the 'underdog' team picking sandwraith+turtle."
You see the sandwraith for trn(FyC) beating clan clan in the fnatic tourney and most would agree thats an upset loss
5th GR tourney QuC has easy matches until the finals. If QuC loses to anyone before finals theres no way you have an argument for 'QuC deserves top 5'. If QuC beats FFS in finals I think we'd all be surprised.
Im not blaming QuC for easy matches until the finals, but beating FFS is their best bet for any shot at deserving a top 5 rank.
Top 5 teams listed in power rankings(from 1 to 5 imo)
1 WHP2/3 FFS+5 swappable
4 clan clan
5 143(current 143 is only 2/5 the players from the gr tourneys roster. willing to bet they would still be 5 if they do get a stable roster going.)
of the teams listed above every one would win 7-9/10 games against QuC.
If you think thats untrue then youve just got a lot of faith in QuC because past tourney matches make it hard to dispute.
I don't really like QuC, but they deserve to be in the top 5 regarding their effort to be part of it; When i see some teams having 5 years of experience and don't show up to tourney. I don't really check wins, i check the evolution, they don't have legendary players like loda, levent, or chu ... they are new to the gaming scene compared to some teams and they have some teamplay problems but they are capable of doing such perfect actions sometimes, no team is abble to do the same at the moment and this is the result of intense training, i can see that; Knowing that, they are just at the begining of their career, if they keep the effort and keep the same line up they might deserve the top 3, for the moment they deserve the top 5 as 143 is not complete.
