jka premiership qualifiers
|Admins do we have to play whole of the qualifiers (which seems abit silly to me, complete awhole cup just to qualify for a cup) or do we move onto group stages on thursday?|
|You have to play the whole cup.

|I thought it ment top 4 as in o3/zent winner, Fast Five, nTw / warmachine winner, and 4.2.3 / mWs winner, are the group leaders and everyone else is random, so group stage should start on thursday right?|
|Finish this cup and enjoy it.
No need to rush it.
|The top4 would be the round 7 of Loser's onwards + winner of Winner's Bracket. As you can see no seeds drop into round 7, the 3rd and 4th seeds that the teams have won from the Winner's drop into the round before (6) and can still finish outside the top4.
So, only the top2 teams out of Winner's are safe. Not to suggest that you aren't going to get group raped anyway, due to the random nature... But why play in neither cup nor TDM... :/.
I personally think the random nature of the drawings after the top4 is stupid. Just as a hypothetical say that the top4 finishers are: nTw, FF, Vintage and Die Zeit. A group could still end up Vintage, Abyss, Haste and WM or, nTw, Prismatic, JKA and Vice... You could get it really stacked against you, whereas if you were on balanced groups where they're done by finishers 1-16 I think it is a lot less likely for this to happen and typically, you will have clear top2 finishers in the groups. You may get one or two anomilies where teams just get beaten on the day, but typically, the better teams should win what they're meant to and finish top8 to split out equally.
But yeah, whatever I guess?
