Pools look pretty reasonable really. Each pool has a pretty clear 'top 4', plus 2 teams which might cause an upset somewhere. The second pool is just unfortunate that UQ is coming in at 12th seed rather than 'higher up' which might have been more realistic, I don't think it messes things up too badly. The seedings are messed up, but I don't think it really matters after seeing the draw...

I changed the make up of the pools after the seeding was done to even them out a bit. That being said, one is definitely stronger than the other.

Yeah pool 1 has the EUG, SUG and WUG champs while pool 2 only has the NUG champs.

You kind of missed the boat on that one champ.

So these are my thoughts about the divisions...

It was sweet to have all competitive games, being in div1. but there are some things about it that just don't seem right or fair and on balance i am opposed to the two division system...

U of Vic Wellington (New Zealand) should clearly have been in division 1 and they were a potential semi-finalist, though it is hard to judge a team not playing against their own calibre... I would have liked to play them and find out though! and they are unlikely to come in future after that debacle.

There weren't enough games. I understand there was some complaints in the past, but seriously, two days of two games and two of one game?? what a joke. we played a three day tourney over 5 days. something more like... 3,2,3,2,1 would have been more appropriate... especially with the larger roster! Even the most hardcore party people got more than enough sleep!!

AUS seedings are completely mad and basing it on the previous year is a joke. UQ is not the only team that hasn't been every year... and we all know that would have been ridiculous. New Zealand will never go to Perth because it is way to far for them and punishing them for it has only resulted in denying ourselves the opportunity to play a strong team now and in the future. Plus there is a cycle as people graduate as we all know that can send a gold medal team to last place in a year. It is impossible.
 
A couple of extra seeding games aren't going to kill anyone, they will allow the unique culture of our sport to continue, the flux of people to be balanced out and more competitive teams will still get the same number of high level games. If the number of teams is a problem, then there will need to be some kind of qualification process... preferably one that doesn't involve everyone having to pay an obscene amount of money... possibly an actual IV tournament but not organised by the AUS.
