I know. I am saying they are both rigged. Shouldn't they both be 1, 2, 3, 4. Also both league indexes have not been uploaded, only the games.

It's just the way STHS is programmed for byes. It's essentially assuming Stockholm and Seattle won their first round series without having to play a game. If there was two teams in each conference playing in the first round, it would go from 1-28 or whatever the maximum number of games would be in the first round. You'll notice this again when Quebec and Cologne both lose in 5. Sure, the EU game 5 will be 26 or whatever, but Round 2 will begin with game 31 or something like that. It's been like that ever since we've expanded.

 

As to the VHL being fishy, I don't exactly understand how. I'm the only one that can really alter results, and not only do I have no player and thus vested interested in how the VHL shakes out (never mind the time to actually bother), it would be almost impossible to detect even if I did. That's why I try to do live playoff sims when I have stakes in the games. But sometimes I don't because I can't be bothered. I mean, I've probably been upset more in playoffs than vice versa, not to mention I don't see the point in playing if you know you're going to win, and the other team has just as many people hoping and deserving a win as well. Any time I do live sim is more of a formality than an actual safeguard.

Clearly the words of a man who likes rigging shit.
