thats silly, why not play out the groups for seeding purposes?

why does the op have no information about links to the brackets and stuff? also it might just be me, but I find the tournament page a bit difficult to navigate. I'm trying to see what the brackets are / what stage this event is in but it's a bit tough
I have to second Xeris on this. It seems like the tournament page was premade to store all stages of the tournament, which is great, but some sort of indication to which stages were already played could help a lot.
Thanks for the feedback. Right now we're working our way through the 1024 player open. The brackets are all up and the schedule is on the page as well. The finals for that are this weekend and they will have more coverage.
At the end of the month the top 32 players from the open play the 32 invited professionals. We'll have a new post up and full coverage for that as well.

I'm live now and in 5-10 minutes I'll be casting two more bo3's from the ro256! We've had three or four of the actual players in the casts hanging out in the chat, hehe. http://www.justin.tv/complexity

Just trying to understand how the different stages are gonna work, so confusing T_T
Essentially you are right, for some clarity:
We are now in the Qualifying stage which is: 4 groups of 32 player brackets. These brackets were made randomly. When the brackets get down to the ro8 (for each bracket) those players are qualified into the pro-am bracket. 8 players from 4 brackets is 32 total. The 32 who advance are randomly put against the 32 invited players in the pro-am part.
yes thanks for that I understand now. The first stage wasn't played out that's why I was a little confused why this stage would be played out but I see it's concluding the amateur portion of the tournament.
