    Should've read the rules: http://go-pokemon.com/op/premierevents/prereleases/info/DP3/answers.html
    Swiss.

    If we give prizes to the top 6, the seventh guy will feel left out. If we give prizes to the top 9, the tenth guy will feel left out. If we give prizes to the top 12, the thirteenth guy will feel left out...

    The only thing I am mad about is that the t4 with even records, was decided by opp. win%age.

    How is any 1 t4 more desearving than another? win%age is a stuppid way to determin anything.

    Keep in mind that these prizes are additional. My goodness, be glad that you had a chance at getting extra packs.

    A good tie breaker for a prerelease would be to have the t4 randomly play each other.

    Maby sudden death, or 2 prizes and a match time limmit of 5-10 min.

    I know that, but it's not really fair that I went 4/1 and Robbie went 4/1, and even though I beat him in the last match, he was first and I was 4th. I lost because my opponents did badly. I cant controll how well they do, or how well they even play. Why should my place in a tourny be determind by how well/badly my opponents did?
