A compilation of the issues with the Paris NA RMR Open Qualifier

According to the bracket, two different teams have got a bye or a walk-over in every single match until the quarterfinal, so they effectively just have to win a single game to enter the closed qualifier. And that match, unlike the others, will be a Bo3.

The sinister possibility is that they had a bunch of friends sign up as fake opposition with the express intent of leaving W/O's for the Bo1 games. The slightly less sinister one is that a lot of people had a hard time figuring out how to get on the server, and these teams just immediately filed to have their opponents disqualified when all five of the enemies weren't on the server at the advertised time, rather than agreeing to wait.
