Initially, our rulebook stated that we would do random seeding within groups. Truthfully it was an aspect of this league that we hadn't discussed as in-depth as we should have. Upon implementing our system, we immediately realized how flawed this thinking was & opted to rectify this by basing placement on the ATP rankings, the very system we used to place players into the Platinum & Gold leagues.
Instead of any randomization being involved we placed players evenly into each group based on their 1v1 ATP rankings in a snake format, leading to an even "spacing" between seeds. Ultimately changing the handbook felt necessary for TTL to have the competition & balance we are striving for, and to start off on the right foot from the beginning. We strongly believe this is the best outcome to ensure a fair and competitive event.
