Just my opinion here but the seeding in the round of 32 should be a little different format. As it stands you would have players ranked #1 and #3 possibly playing each other in the 2nd round. Same with #2 and #4. Ideally you want to set it up so that its possible for the 4 top seeds to all meet in the semi finals with #1 playing #4 and #2 playing #3. Think of the ncaa basketball tourney. Here is a basic 16 man tournament seeding.

1
16

9
8

6
11

4
13

3
14

7
10

5
12

2
15

As you can see this is a much more fair and uniform way to seed. If the top 4 seeded players keep advancing they would pnly be able to play each other when theres only 4 players left. This way top seeded players are really only able to play each other at late stages in the tournament. The last thing you want to do is make all the talent play each other and knock each other out too early. You want to see the best players advance and play each other in the end. Just my opinion but I think most people would agree.

I agree with Dax.
The 1 vs 1 eliminatories for the best 16 players should be like he says.

I know the mistake about the bracket format. In next days I correct all.

After this round is there anywhere where we can see the total rankings for the two games to know what needs to be done to qualify for 2nd round?

After second game (in a pause day) I'll open a special leaderboard with all partial results after 2 match.

If someone has 0, 0, 155 and someone else has 75, 5, 75 the first person will win the tiebreaker right? (155 + 0 > 75 + 75)

Just checking out (as I've failed miserably to qualify again).

Thank you very much to the K8 admin team. Enjoyed all 3 games and will follow the rest of the tournament with interest. Good luck all - I'm back to Fable 2 to see if I can complete it before Fable 3 launches.

Hope to 'see' you at the TG Deca - if it happens as planned in January.

Question: what happens if both players in a head to head match doesn't submit anything or for whatever (almost impossible) case their scores are the same? Who passes the turn? Presumably the best ranked one?
