    2. i was confused as well Serenaya
      it says all the matches are single elimination except the final, which is a Bo3, the right away it says Bo5...

    3. Single elimination stands for the tournament not having a "losers bracket". This means that once a team plays another team in a best of 3 and loses, they're out. No chance of coming back in the losers bracket. In other words, in a double elimination bracket you must be eliminated twice. In a single elimination bracket you are only eliminated once.

      So this means each match is a best of 3, and whichever team loses it out of the tournament. The final match is a best of 5.

      Does that make sense now?

  6. I really hope season 2 finals isn't a double elimination, its so anti climatic. You get to the finals where it should be the most climatic of the event...but wait, one team has twice the odds to win...I hate it.
