    GL to all! Nice to see this cool tournament being revived.

    Just wondering how the Wild Cards were chosen. The Top32 were chosen on how many games they played as far as i can tell and then the WC's were hand picked randomly? Thats a kinda inconsistent and unfair system in my opinion. Im pretty sure there are several people that wonder why this method was chosen over one consisting of raw facts.

    Either chose the WC's with the method you used to determine the Top32 or grab everyone based on 'winning percentage' in the Top 100 in future installments of this tournament.
    But maybe im all wrong and you guys did this already and people just didnt wish to participate.

    Have Fun!

    Everyone who was top 32 automatically received an invite. 8 people did not want to play. I then looked on the 33-50 wins list for people who:

    - had a good win %
    - had done well in the most recent Smogon Tours (11-13)
    - made a top 16
    - had participated in the previous Kind of a Big Deal

    Iconic was 33rd in wins, ToF is the recent champion, McMeghan made top 16, Delta is a previous Tour Champion, ENZ0 is a former runner-up, Ciele made top 8, Ojama has an excellent win % and is two seasons removed from top 16, and Phil was in the previous installment of my tournament.

    I understand that you and potentially other players in the 33-50 range may be upset that they were not picked, but these choices were at my digression and I am very confident in the caliber of players that I chose.

    It would be great if the players could save their battle logs and send them to the host (who would post them at the end). Since it's a tournament between top players, i'm sure there are other people like me who would be pleased to watch such matches.

    Philip7086 vs. ToF = ToF, 2-1

    3 close games, where ADV was decided on a damage roll. GGs man, I guess you can keep your trophy...

    Edit: Apparently it wasn't a damage roll in ADV, I guessed his spread wrong. GGs!
