    Do you think this is better format for double elimination format? i just see this in recent asian tournament and i feel like it's fair to give upper bracket finalist +1 win since, well, they never lose..

    what do you think?

    Their reward is not having to play an extra Bo3 on the final day. Not losing doesn't mean you deserve an unfair advantage like that, its very easy for a bracket to favor your team, or to be bad for another team. Not every game of Dota is the same and winning a Bo3 against a team doesn't necessarily mean you are better than that team.

    All series should start even.

    Right, not having to play an extra game is a good advantage. All series should have to start even. Not losing does not mean you deserve an unfair advantage like that. Not every game of DotA is the same.

    I think this is especially true when the Grand Finals and Loser Bracket finals are on the same day. And also the guys coming from Winners Bracket do get the advantage of having more of the opponent's games to analyze.

    Although some players have said that it is not bad to have that momentum from winning the previous series when going into the final. I can imagine that is especially true if it was a tight losers final.
