Just a heads up that we’ve decided on a seeding method for EVO2k3. Last year’s system of using Apex rankings worked for the most part, but produced some bad results like the ST Black Bracket o’ Death. So instead, here’s what we’ll do:
The top four players from both ECC and MWC will automatically get seeds.
Since MWC is after ECC, the seeds go to the top four finishers who don’t already have a seed from ECC.
The remaining seeds will be determined by the tournament organizers.
The number of seeds depends on the number of players in the tournament. There will be at least one seed for each pool (so that there won’t be two seeded players in the same pool).
This system ensures that the seeds are spread out across the country, but there are still enough left over seeds for us to give out to top players that don’t go to either tournament.
