    Does that mean you are going to take a bribe, then resign right after the playoffs start? :p

    That would be emulating Blatter.

    We're emulating FIFA and being totally corrupt with bribes flowing all over the place :rolleyes:

    Since this is a better place to discuss the actual seedings and how I did them wrong, I'm making a post here to note that if I do head any future CC:s I'll make them with an even number of divisions no matter what, since it's no good trying to seed an odd number of divisions so that the first round of playoffs is against a non-division member.

    One scenario I thought would happen (in CC15) was that wild card teams would get ordered by record and the first round games would be:

    Div1 1st vs. WC 4th
    Div1 2nd vs. WC 3rd
    Div1 3rd vs. WC 2nd
    Div1 4th vs. WC 1st
    Div2 1st vs. Div3 4th
    Div2 2nd vs. Div3 3rd
    Div2 3rd vs. Div3 2nd
    Div2 4th vs. Div3 1st

    This would have been the closest scheme to what was used in the past, while ensuring that at most two games are group stage rematches, and only if two of the wild cards came from division 1. Incidentally, had I gotten a rematch under those circumstances, I wouldn't have complained one iota.

    On the other hand, the system that was used to seed CC15 ensures that two wildcard teams WILL make the quarterfinals, while two of the top 4 finishers in division 1 (or any division, for that matter) WILL get eliminated. Frankly speaking, given that the only reason WC teams made it was due to the number of automatic bids not being a power of 2, giving them guaranteed quarterfinal spots seems... questionable. But that's my take on it.

    That is what I was expecting as well.
    I could not think of another way where it wouldn't be better to be a place lower down for someone.

    I'm afraid I looked too much at semis and finals, and didn't consider enough what it meant for people on the lowest levels to strike out "a round sooner" than they had otherwise expected. I can only apologize and admit to my mistake.
