Good work finally the removal of possible admin bias. However I do believe that at least the winners of each division should get an automatic spot into the higher div as you did with Trident.
Yer after the last selection thread, it was a case of the admins are not happy, the players arnt happy etc. So even though Im sure the admins got it 95% right this is just better for every one. No chance of bias and it be as accurate as it can be. The only blame that can come is from performance. The format for the qualifiers gives the best chance for all teams we feel.
Keep in mind that if a CGm team or CGa team try to get in the CGp or CGi qualifiers they will be removed because its not logical.

No promotion for Season 9's division winners?
Regarding the winners should get automatic placement it was discussed that it seems wrong that 3rd / 4th place in CGp last season dont get automatically in but CGi teams do. So yet again the best solution is the top 2 CGi teams get a spot in the CGp qualifier and we let the results show who deserves it.
2 areas we expect "backlash" is 8 teams CGp and no auto berth for all division winners. But to have top 2 CGi come to CGp and then just have 4 spots for Grinny, Chiefs, Tainted, and who ever else also doesn't seem the best way to start the new year. So again They will have a spot in the FFYI and hopefully they make one of the 6 spots available. So its still kinda a similar thing, they get to play against CGp skill level, and see if CGp is where they belong.
In saying that, make sure you guys keep watching the forums as we have exciting sponsors to announce shortly, and we have an increase in prize pool etc.
