hmmm, doubt it's possible
what if I have 6 picks and the final doesnt take place because of a withdrawal from an injury in training?
"doesn't pick 7 games" is not the same as "doesn't have 7 valid picks"
i agree, if 2 players are tied the one with less picks should win
but the rule is different, if 2 players are tied, this one with less picks is better only when they both have same consecutive best picks over 0 pts
and this is specific situation, just 7 picks, just 16 players and much higher stake - it's no sense to resign during tournament, even before the final you can reach few places, I understand that, but if someone did, why wouldn't we give a chance to another?
of course not for everyone, but i.e. max 3-4 alternates
