They probably do, I just blame China for everything -- similar to how we blame you~♥ Though moefags suck moar
Now I can hate on South China Sea~~
Results still suck though. And so will these upcoming ones.
I'm also going to take this opportunity (which I will likely reiterate later on in the year) to say a massive 'I TOLD YOU SO' @maglor re: making Homura 3rd seed. ;-;
VI. Seeding Round
A. The Seeding Round takes place between Phase I and II. Each Division's Seeding Round is formatted the same and takes place on the same days.
1. The twelve (12) winners from Phase I form one voting group. The remaining seventy-two (72) Candidates are divided into eight (8) groups of nine (9).
2. The groups are formed based on final results from Phase I.
3. Voters may select up to two (2) characters per group.
4. The results of this event will be used towards initial seeding of Contestants in the Regular Season only.http://internationalsaimoe.com/rules/charter.php
Homura became 3rd seed because of inherent flaw in the seeding system. Thus my question again : Should we implement better seeding system ( which is available, flexible, and well tested ) , at the expense of making the whole season much more predictable? If one of the proposed seeding system was used, people can use just the seed number to predict the result of most of the matches for most of the year. Only 3 or 4 contestant's end of regular season rank will be more than 3 numbers away from their seed number. ( Post Season Playoff matches are totally different story, and they will be assigned new seed number anyway ) Is this desirable ?
