The thing is, randomness is typically most prevalent in single elimination settings.
Unlike a round-robin prelim, anybody can win/lose 1 game in a one-and-done setting, upsets royally skew brackets, and the 'luck of the draw' typically plays a huge factor....especially at this level.
said, when an already small sample size is arbitrarily broken down into subsets, 1 single game can cause huge statistical deviations.
If we're attempting an
look at the OG, it's important to view the tournament holistically. We get an incomplete and altered picture if we don't.
