These teams that have been seeded higher have proven their worth in the last tournaments or in other tournaments around Australia. They're not dud teams that will crash and burn in the first round hence why they get to play on Saturday.
Other teams have yet to prove themselves, are new teams or got seeded as such from their performance in the last LAN.
I want the best of the lower crop to make it through rather than have the top teams fight it out on the first day. Also keep in mind that shops would be closed on that Friday given that it is Good Friday.
I also don't want to be running a LAN where it starts at 10am and finishes at midnight. The last LAN finished at such time. We experienced some outages, PC issues, games were running behind time. This was unforeseen of course but we hope that this time around with a two day format, things will be smoother.
I do have real life commitments to tend to such as looking after my family, work, etc. I do this in my own free time and do not make any money from this at all. This is strictly for the love of the game.
I do hope you understand this and respect my decision to run this tournament in the format that I have chosen.
