For SF and F I suggest to switch to the modus described by Josko and edited by Silver. Only change to shorten the time: 4 games at once and game numbers determine the result. So it is possible that we see a 2-0 ending in a 2-2; but the team that has lead 2-0 wins the round. As all of us looking for good competition I assume everyone is fine with this. 2-2 would give 3 more games at once - the 7th as a tie breaker.
Would like to hear some feedback - the amount of games would only be a problem for one team so far, but we will handle that I guess.
One of reasons for suggesting that was also lowering game load, which is my the biggest problem now, as I am lowering my games so signing up for tourney with 3 games at once would be too much ATM, especially on so hard map and with expected high quality opposition. Also going 2-2 but being eliminated is not great for competition.
