Still got some questions about the seeding in the Swiss Stage:
Does it matter for the seeding if you win 3-0 or 3-2?
In the fourth round, when there are 3 teams who won 2 games and lost 1 and 3 teams who won 1 game and lost 2, I'm still not completely sure how the seeding will be determined.
Also, I think it's possible that in the fifth round some teams will be forced to play against each other who already have played, so it might be good to clarify that.


It does matter, yes. Semi finals will be seeded using the number of losses in the group stage. Best vs worst teams.
Round 4 will have a match were a 1-2 team will have to face the 2-1 team, yes. First I'll try and match teams that haven't played against each other. If that leaves multiple options, I'll use the group stage seeding and match the lowest 2-1 vs the highest 1-2.
If there are no other options teams will play each other more than once, yes. The explanation of how exactly the Swiss format works isn't spectacular. I'll work on improving it.

Ty for the answers.
Also like balcanman mentioned earlier in the thread, with the Swiss Format you'll usually see seed 1 play vs seed 5 and seed 2 against 6 etc. because you generally want the closer match ups to happen later in the group stage (so seed 4 and 5 shouldn't be playing each other that early)

Maybe it would be nice to show a brackets of the Swiss Format where the highest seed always wins, to give some insight in how the brackets work. I made an example here, but not sure if I did the seeding correct and it looks really ugly

2 rule suggestions for a better viewer experience:
- Players should use the same colors in all games during a match
- Players should use the same nickname throughout the tournament, preferably the most well known one (e.g. Vivi)

+1

Easy to implement and makes for great viewer experience. Please add this to rules

Swiss Format is allways cut the half, 1 v 5, 2 v 6


I agree and we should be using the proper system in my opinion

For the same nick during whole tournament yes +1, for color no.
And it’s more proper when everyone play under the same tag, like RTSL. Nowadays team can have a team with many tag différents, I’m not fan of this, RTSL and WCLs séries looked really proper good etc

During these tournament games im often watching stream and there are always multiple questions about which player is which colour etc. Definitly a better viewer experience if all players keep the same colour during one series. The suggestion of Edie I like too

Color why not?

Remember the color same for each set of matches, not whole tournament.
