Eh,I quite like it, gives you a guaranteed four matches and it can be pretty exciting when two people get to the finals 5-0. There are other ways it could be done,like everyone plays seven matches, top four advance (means a short wait for four of them but having played more games) or four pools of four, top two advance, providing the people not advancing can then leave rather than sit through three rounds, but guaranteeing everyone four matches isn't a bad thing in the current setup, better than getting one match then having to sit the rest out.

It's not that I necessarily mind it, But it doesn't serve a purpose. I can lose all 3 qualifiers and still get in. That doesn't really make sense. Might as well just start the playoffs and get it over with. Can save a lot of time and can give people more chances to win the whole thing
