Like many setups here, it is useful if your opponent doesn't move and you get 4 Ts in a row.

Top 8 are seeded from previous TTO, the rest of the bracket is seeded by LPM statistic.

Is there a reason we're not seeding by Sprint time like previous TTOs? I don't know about TTO IV, but TTO III was seeded by Sprint time and the bracket was very balanced.

How did you determine this? What model did you use to define "balanced"? Just interested in your methodology.

The final 16 were all top players. If the bracket were imbalanced, lower-tier players would be in the top 16.

Oh wow, top 16 == top 16 seeds is definitely a good indicator that seeding was successful. Well done!

Extending to the general case, checking if the top 2^n results == top 2^n seeds seems like a very good way to check seeding efficacy.

I believe this was done via looking at TF profile, which is obviously a little erroneous since players that have had their account for longer will have lower LPMs.
