You think seeding would be better, others don't.
It seems like just about everyone on here wants seeding, by 'others don't' do you me just yourself?

Of the people in this thread there's Calcium for starters, and Mulldripster. I read Jimmy as wanting seeding only if we go to 32 teams, and then only for that first round, based on his two comments in the thread; it looks like the sage is in agreement. So I make that 4 outside the admin team on this thread. You keep reading whatever you want to read, though ;)

I've been an administrator of a league for a very long time and I know from personal experience that many people will not play if they do not think they have a chance.

Some of you may not realize this but coaches will look at the other top teams making it to the playoffs and will delete their team or pull their team from the competition if they feel they don't have a chance already.

This is partially the reason why we have to dig so deep at times to find a person willing to go.
I don't think these concerns will be relevant to a league with $950 in prizes.

Oh? Even in the world cup this past year, we had a bunch of trouble getting the 3rd place decider to play. They were supposed to go before the actual first place but couldn't get them to play until about a week or 2 after. That was for what 1000 euros?

Seeding is for noobs. Let's move on! *chuckles*

Was the times they could play restricted to coincide with casters?

random is better than seeding in this format.

I think the 32 teams would be good, 2 of each race, and I think it may encourage play!!!

And maybe give me a chance of qualifying ;)
