Why do they have to dilute this tournament with so many losers year after year? I just dont get it. Not everyone needs to be in the damn tournament. I was almost considering signing up and watching again with the Kingston and Kiyomiya announcements, but then I saw a bunch of the others added and I think I’ll pass.
