im confused. this system just seems strange...if x6 already beat karont3 why would karont3 get another chance to play x6? its 1-1 but since karont3 won second game that makes them the winner? how is this more fair?
1) are you familiar with seeds on a group ? basically, each groups is made with one team from seed #1 (na'vi fnatic esc and so on), one from seed #2, one from seed #3, and one from seed #4. still clear in your head ? now let's get to the second step.
2) now imagine that each group is a small double bracket. first games will be #1 vs #4 and #2 vs #3 (in term of seeds). in the x6 k3 na'vi group, na'vi and x6 won. they moved to the "group final", and the two loosing teams (karont3 & the spanish team) moved to the "win or get disqualified" game. that's the 3rd step
3)as i said, winners of the first matchups play against each other, and so does the loosers. then:
-winner of the "group final" takes the first spot on the group (in that case, na'vi won x6 and ended up first on the group)
-the loosing team (x6)from this game faces the winning team from the "win or get disqualifed" game (karont3). that's the "relegation" game, and the winner of this final game will end up 2nd, while the looser will end up 3rd and go home. karont3 won the relegation game, and got the second spot for brackets.
Since we're in 2012 quite many players are used to Tft's I think. Also almost every tournament uses Tft's now, correct me if I'm wrong. So I'm pretty sure people are used to play with Tft's especially during tournaments.
Thats not what I said. Sure more prefer a 120hz TFT/LCD/LED, but I'm quite sure if you ask players here, the majority will take CRT over 75hz LCD/TFT. It's oldschool as fuck, and to be honest, I like it.
This system is good
Set 1: DELTA vs k1ck
Set 2: fnatic vs webone
Set 3: Winner of Set 1 vs Winner of Set 2(winner advanced)
Set 4: Loser of Set 1 vs Loser of Set 2
Set 5: Loser of Set 3 vs Winner of Set 4(winner advanced)
This delay happens in 70%+ of the torunaments. Why are you even complaining I don't understand. When this happened at IEM no one complained (or at least no one started topics or invented future fails)
This monitors are way better than 75hz LCD etc. and 120hz are a bit to expensive in that amount. So CRT's are the best options.
And about that restart.. it's a general rule, if something like this happens in the first 3 rounds the half gets a restart. You wanted to start the 3rd round with equal money? The restart with equal money and same score as it was before the crash applies only from the 4th round because if there was no crash both teams could afford any wapon.
