    bah...you might just get a pass anyhow if i can't get some other stuff done.

    and my success in MM is far from stellar, so you've got a good shot.

    none of you are bracketed to go against fearless next round if you win so you all need to just be happy you have a chance at round three.

    poor me and davulf and the person fearless faces in round 1

    i don't really think this is whining, but whomever did the seeding failed to notice that this is now the third year in a row where NJP3 and I have been paired up in the first round. what's up with that?

    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.

    Don't worry, Silver. I'm in the same boat. Even if I make it past round one, I probably don't have a chance going up against last years winner. Congratulations, CT. I'll just conceed now.

    Edit: Wow @ Nordberg's predicament. I'm calling this competition FIXED

    Aren't you assuming CT will beat Happy Pixel?

    Incedentally, how is the seeding done? I saw some speculation earlier in this thread, but never noticed an official answer...

    the seeding is done by dri and the mods...they know everyone's skill level, and are very fair.

    and apparently very consistent...

    Its based on a few things (arena participation, previous years results, throwing darts at a map of the world and assigning each person a country, observing the flight patterns of the south american swallow) We've used the same system for the past 2 years and it seems to work decently although is not perfect.

    The seeding is actually done in excel using a macro i wrote where each person is assigned a different weight.

    Erm, okay! Sounds mystical.

    I've just noticed some names which by my opinion seem quite underranked(not myself btw), so I wasn't sure if it was random. Sounds effectively almost random.

    well dricciotti explained his system well, but i also think that it is a combination of post count, skill level and participation in the arena. That's at least how i see where i was ranked.

    And dricciotti....you'll get yours for that :ba-zing:
