This is everyone's beef. We can't construct brackets by some arbitrary means. Post count, like count, whatever. It has to be something simple. I chose post instead of like this year. It seems to be working pretty well. Good brackets. Fuck the haters. Right in the pussy.
All jokes aside, I would have done it the same way you have except for seeding the likely top 8 in their own regions so that they don't match up early.
Minor tweaks is all it would take. No hate

is the avatar forced?
Forced? I could make an asshat usergroup that can't change avatars, but I don't think it's necessary. The asshat should wear his avatar for the full year or face EVEN MORE eternal shame and humiliation.

LOL, if anything the winner would remove it immediately for that reason alone

I think you could do temporary avatar bets, loser takes the asshat avatar. What does everyone think? Adds an element of shame to losing a bet to an asshat.

Wonder if it would be worth the effort in the future, to seed previous contestants by past year performance/votes (strong/weak seeding) and new people comparatively low-seeded. Or a by a second set of parameters.

Or we could make Negs -1 and go by that...

Hey, asshat!

I said temporary avatar bet. So 1 week bet, loser gets the avatar for 1 week then it reverts back to the asshat.

it's still treated like a hot potato, instead of inflicting your own punishment avatar of choosing, you have to just passing along junk, whats the fun in that.

Despite this last minute campaigning, I don't think you're going to beat Tyen getting his little Indian sniped by a drunken swamp donkey.

re: bracket seeding

as long as everyone actually votes for who the biggest asshat is in each round, instead of considering other factors (like the most common "does he want it"), then the winner of the whole competition will assuredly be the biggest asshat...

only way the seeding fucks things up is if people start considering things other than pure, unadulterated asshattery.
