            Explain to me how the low bracket strat work? It's always better to be in high bracket because if you lose you would still have a chance to fight, but in lower bracket if you lose you get eliminated.

            And in high bracket you will fight less enemy but in low bracket you will fight more enemy, miracle must be really confident if he thinks lower bracket is good.

              Only Liquid now how to use lower bracket strategy

                Pretty sure it is said as a joke but it does have certain psychological advantages. you sometimes get to play against teams that have just lost a series, you get more exposure on the stage to normalise the experience (and get more support from the fans), you get to be the underdogs but you also get to play against worse teams so can keep something back for the grand final.

                on the downside, one fuck-up and you're out...

                it is only legit if you are a team which should actually be in the upper bracket and can expect to win against the worse teams.

                  It’s a Miracle thing. Remember the first iteration of OG, Frankfurt Major, did the same thing.

                    These guys are so dumb i gotta explain it to them . In upper bracket u get all the good competitive teams . OG PSGLGD SECRET . While the lower bracket gets the trash and even less number of elimination games in the start of bracket to save strats , making it easier to go further beyond IF u are good

                      You just proved my point, then it always be better to fight in upper bracket and try to win and even tho you lose you would still face the noob bracket (lower bracket) as you stated above.

                        You also seem to be ignoring the importance of momentum and confidence in sport. teams coming out of the upper bracket have probably just lost an emotionally draining and confidence sapping series so they are unlikely to be bringing their A-game to the lower bracket elimination game.
