The seeding system is fine. You can't really make an objective seeding system better than this. It consists couple of different factors, all of them relevant in measuring player strength (current rating, all time best rating and previous tournament achievements). Civ draft on the other hand could be better but it's also an experiment. I think the first KotD civ draft system was already perfect.In any other setting for tournament i agree. But this setting doubles the advantage for them. Not only they play easier opponents, they also have better civs. The seeding system wasnt the best also.
