    Pool B Tiebreaker
    Alright so you're probably aware that we had a 4-way tie. I don't trust Battlefy's seeding at all, so I did some manual domination matrix seeding, which effectively gives each player a points value that ranks them and is effective resistance. I used this to get the following points, with the order of players what Battlefy presented me with under 'standings.' Uploaded the image here.
    As you can see zwinne had the highest points total, followed by Lore95VGC, Mudcrab and then Spuriffic. This will be how I will seed the tiebreaker. So, the following two sets will determine who will reach Top 8:

    zwinne Vs Spurrific
    Lore95VGC Vs MudcrabVGC

    EDIT: For clarification, of the two winning players of these sets, the player with the higher resistence will be the 1st seed

    Pool C
    Emforbes Vs MasterWizard

    Pool D
    JonoTV
    Vs Knappi
