I apologize in advance if this has already been covered in another thread. I’m hoping that someone from Evo staff could please shed some light on this for the community.
According to evo2k.com, Evo South got 4 slots, Evo East gets 8 slots and Evo North gets 8 slots as well. That means that either Evo West gets 4 slots or 8 slots.
If Evo West gets 8 slots, that is 28 pre-qualified slots going into the 32 man semi-final bracket at Evo World. That leaves only 4 spots left for people to qualify at Evo World, meaning that either there will be only 4 pools, or maybe if there are 8 pools, then there will be an 8 man tournament between the winners of the pools for the remaining 4 slots. Am I on the right track here?
If Evo West gets 4 slots instead of 8, then that leaves 8 slots for people at Evo World to qualify with, meaning that if there were 8 pools, the winner of each pool gets into the top 32 semi-final bracket.
Which one is it? Or am I totally off base here? If I recall correctly, last year top 8 from Evo West and East made it into the top 32 bracket at Evo world, and there were 16 from the pools. It was the top 2 players from each pool that made it in. To cut it down to 8 is pretty tough, but cutting it down to 4 is just insane.
I’m pretty sure that cutting it down to 4 is not that way it’s going to be, so that means that the west coast only gets 4 slots, whereas Evo North gets 8?? Can someone please shed some light on this for me? Thanks in advance!
