Seed numbers are distributed so as to favor the highest seed numbers by grouping them with diametrically opposed seed numbers. This will ensure higher seeded teams have a larger advantage in their games, as they will be playing with lower seeded teams.

NOTE: If there are less than 80 teams EGL Staff may adjust seeding and or amount of teams per group / match. If there is a significantly large amount of signups, EGL Staff may opt to add lobbies at their discretion.

If the disputing player is unable to provide valid evidence for the reason that they disputed, then the player will be removed from the tournament and will also receive a suspension due to disputing without valid reason/proof.

Evidence that does not meet the above criteria will not be considered.
