Trivia[edit]

The final day of this Qualifier was characterized with errors and delays by the organizers.
The initial bracket seeding was incorrect and no admin was online at the beginning of the final phase of this event which started at the planned time, 19:00 CET: after about 30 minutes, with three of the four Quarterfinals matches in progress and the fourth one already concluded, an admin finally confirmed that the matches were incorrectly seeded.
It was thus ruled that the completed match would be voided and the bracket would be correctly reseeded to the intended matches. There was a 2 hour delay issued for the event with the reasoning of giving players time to prepare for their new match ups which began at 22:00 CET.[1]
