Re: (LAST DAY TO SIGN UP) As2gaming.com 2v2 International Knock Out Tournament

If you don't get 16 teams (probably not) maybe you could put what you have in two groups, have them all play each other and have top 2 from each group advance into winner bracket of the double elimination? (have #1 from one group play vs #2 from the other)
Then have 3rd and 4th spot from groups go directly into loser bracket? (and have #3 from one group play vs #4 from another).

MLG Starcraft 2 tournaments did something similar but with lots more groups and participants.

This system makes it OK to have number of competitors that are not divisible by 8 or to have groups with uneven number of members.

Will definitely see about that. Unfortunately the site we use for the brackets doesn't allow for that level of customization. But once we have the final team list at the end of today i will decide how it will work.

It would be ideal to have an even number, so if we could just get one or three more teams to join us here at the last minute it will be all the better for it :D
