Curious tournament seeding question Wed, 26 March 2014 02:53
TOO late for anything this year but let me ask what I think is a Curious question: Does anyone else sense there being a little less justice to the same players getting first round byes in these tournaments of AMC/SPWC/SMC/EMC?

I am not sure what to do with the feeling I have about the matter. For surely there is part of me that says the 'just' thing is that players with a better ranking should get the bye. But then when I see they get a bye not just in one of the groupings but perhaps some will get it for all 4, the justice of that policy starts to swing to that is not a 'just' system after all.

And there is a part of me that wonders: getting a higher ranking involves a lot of variables, including games played and against whom the games are played. So does the higher ranking therefore deserve the 'automatic first round pass'?

Maybe the players who should get the first round pass should be the players from the previous year who finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. The seeding would not have to change, just the place of the first round passes. (Example whoever is ranked 6th, wins this year, then is ranked 8th next year. Slot 8 thus is the one with the bye.)

Or another possible solution might be for any player ranking high enough for byes in more than tournament to pick which one tournament they want the bye in. But that might be too tricky as these tournaments do not start at the same time.

Just a curiosity to consider for next year, and discussion now for a policy NEXT year.
