Makes me think this sort of stagelist might be good. It's good to see unconventional characters do well, and I wonder how much the bigger stagelist played a part in that. It's hard to glean much from just one tournament, though. At the very least, I hope Mew2King and Salem continue using it, and I'm sure they will. Stagelist experimentation is a good thing. I get why it's not done often - it's kind of a hard thing to do when majors are running pretty conservative lists, and locals need to be a good training ground for majors. But it's still something I'd like to see done more often, since Ult is a young game.This was a very, very wacky tournament.
Many players upsetted early, unconventional character picks advancing far, and the very strange stagelist, this was a very.... interesting tournament to say the least.
