Does the team that stays in the winning bracket not get a 2nd chance if they lose in the finals? If not, i'll have to agree with ftx here that dropping in the loser's bracket might be beneficial. It's risky though, and I doubt there will be a team so strong that you admit defeat before even having played

If you want to avoid having 2 series for the finals, you can always giving the winner's bracket team a 1 win bye in the final match. That way they are given compensation for being in the winner's bracket but you don't end up with 2 BO5 team games.

Albeit it could be a bad idea (too many matches) but maybe you could add a "reset" to the grand finals? In fighting tournaments, even on grand finals, if you are coming from the winner bracket, you still need to lose twice (double elimination) in order to lose. Meaning whoever is coming from the loser bracket has to win two BO3 in order to win because they need to "reset" the bracket (since the winners bracket player hasnt lose once, they need to be eliminated twice (double elimination stays true the whole tournament)).

I agree with FtX as in that the winners bracket should have a bigger reward. Maybe Grandfinals could be a BO3 with the "reset" factor? (because the possibility of two BO5 sounds bad).

I guess what Swkoll just said lol

Nobody is suggesting 2 BO5s, the standard practice is to give the team from the winner's bracket a 1-0 advantage in the series.

How about we make the Finals a Bo5, and if losers bracket wins... play a 1 game tie break?
That way the Finals will be a minimum of 3 games, and a max of 6.

Thanks a lot guys for the input/suggestions.

That's the exact same thing as a bo7 with the winners bracket team starting 1 game up. Aka what is the norm in every tourney

@thewheelie
I like that better.
A Bo7 with 1 game assigned to winners bracket at start,
which works out to 3 games minimum and 6 games max played.
With 3 games played during the semi finals, is 9 games max for day.
Will put that in tourny rules 🙂

wdym if you got the top 3 players currently signed up on a single team then the nexus team would have like a 65% chance of losing!

You would quite literally need all 32 of the current highest rated global players (including all the dudes with absurdly inflated rating due to only playing dual gap or sentons or astro or only with their friends casually etc) in order for this tournament to be competitive with that team.
