Hello everyone ! Seeds and final format are finally out. It took some time because, as you guys know I asked the Team Leaders for their seeds, and ref didn't send the form, so their seeding will be obviated. We used a system similar to the one Stratus used for Wool-E. This is the final result: https://i.imgur.com/CYPIIaz.png
As you may see, there are 3 different colors for the seeds. Green indicates a "normal" seeding, orange means an "strange" seeding and red an "absurd" seeding. Avg.Seed was calculated with all colors, Avg.Seed2 with Green+Orange seeds, removing the Red ones, and Avg.Seed3 only with Green seeds. If you want more info about the process of deciding wether a seed was Green, Orange or Red, you can ask me on #feedback.

The format will consist in 2 groups, 5 teams per group. The top 3 teams from each group will advance to the invitationals, featuring a double elimination bracket. The top 1 team from each group will advance directlly to the semifinals, and the other teams will have to face each other in the quarterfinals.
