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.


Like CoolForumNamePending 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 in-depth look at the OG, it's important to view the tournament holistically. We get an incomplete and altered picture if we don't.
