I wouldnt think you would agree since its your team... but i guess we'll see what John thinks and go from there...
Everyone is free to think what they like dude
Now that we can stop tiptoeing around the issue, its obvious that you have an issue with the viper organization having multiple teams in the same bracket (even though there are other teams/organizations entering with multiple teams).
The reason I have a "problem" with, for instance, all the Viper teams in the same bracket, is because we already play against each other every weekend. So if we play against each other every weekend, why would we pay a lot of money to do the same thing at a tourney? We, just like every other team, goes to a tourney to play other teams we don't usually see and find out who the best is.
Now if the seeding so happens for all of the Viper teams to be in the same bracket, then so be it. But purposely putting all the same organization's teams in the same bracket is ridiculous. Yes, the more teams an organization puts into a tournament equals a greater probability of that organization taking home a win as a whole. But its not like we, or any other team, puts 3 lines of the same 10 guys in and you have to beat the same 10 players 3+ times. Each line has a different group of players.
Having more teams = more games (usually). Which everyone should be happy about. And NO, sorry if it hurts anyones feelings, but every team is not going to win. These tournaments are getting more and more competitive and I think the majority of players would be happy about that. It's getting harder to win, but that pushes the sport forward and the players in Florida to get better and really fight to win a tourney.
It does not "upset" me to see multiple teams affiliated with the same organization in the same bracket, but it simply does not make sense. The only reason you have for wanting it this way is so you have a greater chance to win. The only "fair" way to do this is for it to be random, which it is. I don't think anyone should have a problem with random bracketing or seeded bracketing.
I'm not trying to be aggressive or fight with you, I am simply being assertive. I really wish your team and everyone else's team good luck this weekend. Definitely a fantastic turnout and CFPS is always a competitive and fun time.
