Hoping the admins won't be corrupt in this cup.
Hey, shouldn't there be a losers bracket in this tournament? The amount of teams is already huge and is still rising. Some of u might have noticed that I have already opened a thread in .eu BO2 forum referring to this. Everyone has agreed but I do miss further action. There should be a vote in my opinion.
