I think the playoff spots were fixed according to group placement regardless of rankings

Right, so if they had topped their group wouldn't they just be in G2's spot with difficult games against Heroic/Navi and Vitality? They lucked into this side of the bracket by coming second in their group, not by being the "top seed"

That's just how it is. And you don't know whether they would be in G2's position or not, so stop speculating.

I am not speculating anything lol. I just thought spots are pre-decided, no seeding included

spots are pre determined by placement in group but not which group goes where

They aren't. They are made in the moment with a shuffle, it was literally shown in the twitch stream. Edit: there's no weird thing nor pre-made groups basically.

They basically explained what OP is criticizing. Since there are 4 2nd pos teams, it is determined by seeding(ranking) where will they go, and since teams from same group can't face each other until semis or finals, FaZe has to face complexity who's the lowest in the seeding of 3rd pos. And that's how it works: 2nd pos highest seed vs 3rd pos lowest seed.

seeding should be based on your position in groups. not on your rank...why bother even play those groups then? yes they are top 1 but that doesnt mean that they should have the easiest seed

It is, FaZe was the best 2nd place team so they play the worst 3rd place team.

That doesnt matter for teams like Vitality,G2,Faze and NaVi they want to win the tournament not just get far into it, so sooner or later they will play against the best.

Not denying that but they are a good high t2 t1.5 team. Can definitely upset. Just a young roster that needs more time and experience.

I'd be a believer in an upset if it was almost any other team other than FaZe, what's likely to happen is they'll get 2-0'd in convincingly. FaZe's playoff bracket is perfect for them, they're likely to only have a challenging game in the Quarters and the final.
2022-09-26 00:39
Guys as you see they took into account their rankings and also placements in the EPL groups. As you noticed when they draw the teams they put the 1st seeded teams of each group and then the 3rd seeded teams, Then finally the 2nd seeded teams. Personally, i used the previous EPL to create the groups but it seems they combined also rankings which I didn't take into account.
