As I said worst case would be 7 nations just by looking at top8 teams, B teams are not there and in general I just can see 1-2 upsets in bo5. And if it's 6 then it's six. Is it a competitive 2v2 tournament or not? Just let them play and don't try to reshape your tournament admist the action. That's what all people have said regarding kotd and the upsets.Correct
I tried to ask this, but I didn't get a clear answer. As much first place teams will play against second place teams, but it's unclear how exactly the brackets will look.
The opposite is also true, let's say Czech A and B both make it out of groups (unlikely but we've seen bigger upsets). Instead of facing some of the best opponents in the tournament they would then face each other, giving one of them a free pass to the Quarterfinals, which feels very unfair as well.
While I agree with you that the two teams of the same nation facing each other is not needed, if you wanted to make sure multiple teams of the same nation didn't reach top 8, this would be the way to do it. The admins couldn't know the seedings of the teams or if there would be upsets in the group stage that would prevent a B-team from facing a top 8 opponent.
So in hindsight they might not have needed this rule to prevent two teams from the same nation reaching quarter finals, but they couldn't know that before the tournament started.
And the worst is that there are no rules how it will be done, leaving it open to admins to create the brackets by hand??? That cannot be really the intention. Especially not for the biggest tg tournament for years with direct MS involvement. And they can write rules for any number of intranational matchup.
