Best of 5 is indeed better for t8. Anyone can have a bad draw. Best of 5 eliminates the luck factor for a small portion.

Yes, I think is a good idea, the problem is that the master is a very long tournament, (6-7 rounds + 3 rounds of top8) and with this the top8 rounds should last at least 75 mins, thus making the tourney even longer.

I think its a good idea, but as we cant have 2days tournaments, i think its better best-of3 than best-of5

As darksigma have said, it would be cool, but it takes too much time. I would vote for a no.

I like it. Masters already take an insane amount of time - a hour won't make a difference and the feeling of importance will give a lot of joy Very Happy

Also realize that the longer you're on, the more chance that there's going to be some random technical glitch that'll cost you a game anyway, so it probably doesn't matter.


Or maybe its just my computer Wink

It will add a lot more than an hour. Given that top 8 is untimed, players tend to take more time to think decisions through. If the average game takes 20 minutes during timed rounds, they balloon to 30 with untimed rounds. Figuring that the potential exists for 1 match to go the full 5 games, that will add one hour to the top 8 time.

When that is expanded out over the course of 3 rounds, that means tournaments can take up to an additional 3 hours to run. This puts the average master between 8-10 total hours of play, which I think is too much.
