If I recall correctly this happened in the last NAC and it was definitely the wrong call. And yes, it penalized a couple of players giving them tougher opponents. Many people disagreed back then, including myself. In my opinion it was close to be bracket rigging, even if the players were supposedly asked beforehand. I'm positive it was done with good intention, but you know what they say about Caesar's wife...This whole reseeding thing is pretty nonsense - that's literally bracket rigging. That said, even if we were to entertain the thought that something has gone wrong with the bracket, why has the conversation focused on essentially punishing DauT for "screwing up the bracket" by his hard-fought victory? Not that I'd say anyone threw (nor am I anywhere near qualified to judge), but I would at least understand adjusting the bracket to penalize someone who threw their match to get into a "better" bracket - that's match fixing, and sometimes penalized by the thrower being DQ'd/banned from tournaments. But to penalize a winner? I can't get behind that.
When you start a tournament with some settings then keep them until the end. Some small thing or small mistake I can understand that you want to change, but the brackets or the players match ups... that's completely out of the question.
Anyway, I don't recall a big tournament going as smooth as this one. Even scheduling and live games are going great. I can't wait for Memb to announce what he's doing with the rest of Pinztec's money, which it will obviously be Masters of Megarandom
