The last one with 16 teams and a best of 3 took 4 months - I assume this one will be 8 months. hope you are still in.
In clan scene there is best of 7 tie breaker after 60 games which is still better than 1 game tiebreaker.
There is no difference between playing 3 games at once after result is 1-1 or playing 2 games at once plus one if result is 2-2 because you can put immediately to play 3 games when score is 1-1 and in every case, if a team wins 2-0 they will win regardless of result of 5th game, and if not then 5th game will be played earlier to fasten flow of the tournament. That is why I think it is pointless to make 1 game tiebreaker in this system of play. Regarding time of ending a round, playing best of 3 or best of 1 as decider is more or less the same, as finishing time of games do not vary so much.
