Discussion: Worlds 70 Major Bracket Logic?

New to senior ball this year, so I really have no knowledge of these teams. Just by looking at their results since last year, it seems putting them to pay with 70s major isn't right. It's obvious they can compete with the younger age group. Not just compete, but beat them. This is almost like (usssa) having a D team being able to compete with C teams and beating them, only to allow them to play at E worlds, because D worlds got canceled for whatever reason.

I totally understand thinking you're doing what's right, by giving the championship to the 2nd place team. What about the teams that were sent to the losers bracket by Timberworks? How is that fair to them? There are reasons why they're ranked higher.

"we have the right and obligation to use our best judgment in formulating the competitive balance structure for tournament "finals""

I think the best judgement was not used here. Hey we're all human and we all make mistakes, but if the "authority" is a collective group of people and not just a single person, how can the judgement be so off? The competitive balance isn't balanced at all.

What do I know though? Just new here...
