Dammit, why hasn't this been implemented already? It's a simple (if somewhat inaccurate) solution:

Rank the players by a) level and b) 1v1 stats, and then pair those two stats together to determine a player's seed. Perhaps also throw in 1v1 ladder rating if applicable, though you would have to find a mathematical way to compare that to players who haven't played in the ladders.

If it's a team tournament, add the scores of the teammates together when the tourney starts and rate the team based on the average in the team.


Why. in. the. hell. do we still have random seeding in elim. tourneys???

Or rather the host can pick top 16 seed.

no no no.

manual seed = speculation in tournaments and statpumpers seeding in a way their biggest competition would have to eliminate themselves

however seeding random or seeding based on an algorhythm like abovementioned - lvl/winrate with seeding the best with the worst and averages with similar would be nice..

But top players dont have high 1v1 win rates because try play other top players. Just like noobs dont have good rates cause they play other noobs.

I think his point was that it'd still be better than no seeding at all.

I guess but I still agree with Potato.

maybe, but if it was ever introduced it would have to be an option for the host to include seeds rather than forcing every tournament to have seeds.

For the same reason that you can make a tournament RR, Single Elim, or Double Elim.
