It has been about 2 months since my original post about the replacement of RR. Although we know that obviously we couldn’t see how the BO1 bracket would have worked (especially considering virtual world finals was Bo1?) But besides all of this, I think this discussion needs to be brought up again, so we can show as a community which bracket we desire.
Obviously we would like to bring back round robin, but we all know thats not happening, especially with the addition of 2 new divisions. However, @owen169 had made a double elimination bracket that I believe needs to come back into play.
The bracket above is one of the best alternatives to RR. The maximum amount of matches played is 15 (16 with a finals reset) and provides a pretty good way of things out of a teams control (like whitescreen) deciding who has the chance to be the world champion. I, and others, would like the REC to really consider this as an option for a bracket at worlds.
Say your thoughts in the comments on this, it’s a discussion after all!
