It looks like TiKRuy v. NeXsard isn't happening because neither submitted. Maybe CheckeredZebra could go against EbonHawk7X since both their competitors didn't submit? That way all the matches are taken care of unless I'm mistaken.
Just a suggestion.
This is a good suggestion and I would be ok with this if the judges and Checkered are as well. However...
The current problem is that right now there are only 15 groups (assuming CheckeredZebra and I don't get matched up). That makes it a bit of a pain with the tournament bracket, since it's designed to be a 32 >16 > 8 > etc... If this is the case and we don't get paired up, then the best thing to do might be to take the loser with the highest score and let them advance to the next round (this would turn it back into a 16 man match-up to follow the tournament pattern).
The other alternative is that we do get matched up (making it only 14 groups).Then in the next round two people should get a buy (This would knock the bracket back into a standard "quarter-finals > semi-finals > finals" match-up).
The final alternative is a mixture of the two. Checkered and I would get matched up, but the two people with the lowest scores get bumped into the next round, bringing it into a nice 16-man match up again. I like this option the best, as instead of two guys who's opponents flaked out getting into the next round, it's two people who performed the best.
That's my two cents anyway. If anyone else comes up with a better alternative I guess we'll use that.
