P.S.  Up to eight King of the Sea containers are available during this tournament.  I don't have details on how they might be obtained. See below.

7 from Twitch, one from Missions.  I hope I have time to watch that much Twitch.

Update:  The 7 "Twitch drops" are actually missions, not crates.  One per competition day.  The first can't be done in PVE.  <bleah>

 

Drops only from designated 'casters, btw.  See the 'casters link in the OP.

Might want to double check that link - When I click it it says that the document isn't published.

How can you seed by clan, yet allow players from multiple clans on one team? 

How to you stop players sharing Usernames and playing as other players?

For the first part it depends, it really depends on who is on the team, seeding is done via a vote so signed up teams vote on who would be seeded.

For the second part, WG is on standby to look into the accounts of those an Admin may suspect of account swapping and such. I can't say on what they actually do, but in the past they have helped put sanctions such actions and there have been bans and team sanctions because of that.

One team declined seeding so will compete in all rounds.

 

Big respect to that team.

Assuming an individual is good enough to bring 2 different teams to the finals (for their region)...think it will be discovered when they don't show on 1 of the teams for the regional finals match.

If it's across servers the the grand finals match will reveal the issue.

I just hope they don't gate all of these missions/crates behind PVP so I can finally finish the collection.

When this exists, without strict supervision, cheating and bending the rules will happen. Forget the finals, every match played. It's human nature.

Yeah, big respect for the team wanting to go clean house in every division stage match where nobody stands a chance against them. Honourable.

Cameras in spectator mode have been improved considerably.  They can choose team view or god-view, and PoV.  Depends on the skill of the casters.

Those aren't clan names, except that teams can of course choose to use their clan name as team name.

That has been done.  It was detected; the culprits were perma-banned, and the teams disqualified and forfeited all rewards.  It's not worth the risk.

Nah respect because they're not worried they might make a misstep and not make it to the later stages rather than hide behind a seeding. But then I guess they're not a clan whose members run around in Squall league Bravo teams as Mercs.....

You realize that going down to play in divisions is exactly the same thing as what you're accusing right. Going down to a place where resistance is weak because none of the other teams that are an actual challenge to you are there.

It seems like you have little idea of what you are actually talking about.

Well, I need 3 containers, so I will be watching at some point.  I did watch some the last 2 times and it is interesting to watch.
