After debating about which option was the best in the discussion thread, we've come to a conclusion and decided our action should reflect the participants' requests as faithfully as possible. There are three choices that are available to you, pick your choice wisely, and be aware that this is going to change the pace of the tournament's seeding drastically, either allowing everyone to start the event on the fated date of July 8th, or slightly delaying it all until every group leaders have picked their respectful members. Here's a brief explanation of each options:
Manual Picking : Every group leaders pick one player during their turn ; they have a limit of 24 hours to pick whoever they want that is still available on the tournament's list into their group. If they excess that limit, a random player will be implemented into the said group, allowing the seeding to continue. -(May slightly delay the tournament)-
Random Picking : The seeding method is taken down from scratch, and every participants will be divided randomly depending on their previous/nonexistent performances during the previous tournaments.
Manual/Random mix : Instead of completely taking down the whole manual concept, every participants remaining on the list once the second turn is over will be divided randomly into each group, also depending on their previous/nonexistent performances during the previous tournaments.
The poll will close July 6th, 12:00 am (GMT-4), thank you for your cooperation.

As much as I'd love to guarantee a battle with you, EVA, I feel random picking is best for everyone.

Random picking. This whole drafting process is a bit unfair and it takes WAY too long.

Judging by how the manual draft is going, I'm here to announce that we'll be going with randomizing the 59 players.
The tournament will still be starting on the 8th of July and the results of the groups will be posted tomorrow.
Also, remember everyone, there will be four days to complete one round and that there will be four to five rounds per group, depending on the size of the group. I will make sure to post all the deadline rounds for easy reference.
The round robin brackets are gonna be up in 24 hours. Stay tuned.

Good enough. Let's have things go a little smoother for the next tournament.
Current Main: Tidus / Jecht / Onion Knight / Cloud of Darkness
Mission Points: 1500
This should be interesting. What program do y'all use to make the brackets and do your tiebreakers?
