Uh ... I voted for myself.


Quite simply, we had four groups. Each person had a heat against everyone in their own group, and the Top Two advanced.

Think of it in baseball terms, since I know you're a Mariners fan. The five rounds were the regular season, and now we'll be moving into the playoffs.

Quarterfinals
Heat 1: Group 1 1st place vs. Group 2 2nd place
Heat 2: Group 2 1st place vs. Group 1 2nd place
Heat 3: Group 3 1st place vs. Group 4 2nd place
Heat 4: Group 4 1st place vs. Group 3 2nd place

Semifinals
Heat 1 winner vs. Heat 3 winner
Heat 2 winner vs. Heat 4 winner

Then the final and third place games.
Then where does the seeding come in?

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.

The top two in each group advance, as #1 and #2 seeds, respectively. How those people achieved those seeds in each group is described in the process I posted previously, including scenarios in the event of tiebreakers.

The quarters then begin. The winner of each quarterfinal moves on. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaking system will be used.

Does that make more sense?

Nevermind. You confused me when you were talking about seeding. I asked if you meant quarterfinal seeding or tiebreakers and you said both. That made me wonder if you were just going to seed the advancers 1-8 depending on point. Again, nevermind.

Oh, ok. Sorry for the confusion. Sometimes when I'm trying to explain something rather quickly, it doesn't translate to words very well.

So I'll probably end up playing Screwtape? Cool.

You're definitely up against Screwtape in the quarters.

Thanks, I got it now. Maybe.

Sheesh. I certainly don't follow the World Cup or anything, and the format wasn't my idea, but even I can understand how it works.

The quarterfinals are set:

Heat 1: phanan vs. PlaTheGreat
Heat 2: LemonMelon vs. Screwtape2
Heat 3: inmyplace13 vs. BonoIsMyMuse
Heat 4: edge_2125 vs. LemonMacPhisto

I won't be able to start these tonight, however. Look for them at some point in the late morning tomorrow (EST).

Good luck to everyone!
