I posted this when the tourney started, not going to change it on people now. And yes, I know that's what you posted backside

that mostly meant if someone else in your group is replaced by a reserve. So if someone other than you were to win your group (I know it's not gonna happen), they would not be stuck with a map they played once on against the guy you replaced. They could, however, have Hive as their "home" map, since they will have played you 4 times on that map.
I haven't really looked yet, but I know there are people who didn't join in the first set of invites. I'll try again tomorrow night, then I'll have to go begging for reserves to play even though they'll have 0 chance of advancing.
edit- actually much fewer than normal, only 5 people didn't join, plus 1 guy only joined 3 games
