    I hate that I can't find any player information/brackets as a new viewer it sucks not being able to follow placements for the people I enjoyed watching and my friend who was playing it it.

    You can find the bracket for the tournament here! Sorry, but the bracket was not made public before the event, so we couldn't include it in this post.
