Conflict in the bracket draw

At the end of the Group Stage 2 broadcast the playoffs bracket was drawn. First the players who finished first in their groups were put in, and then the players who came second in their groups. The way a tournament bracket is usually formed forces the players who were in the same group in the opposite sides of the bracket, meaning that they can not meet again until the finals. Unfortunately, this fact was overlooked in the bracket draw. As a result, TaeJa/HyuN and DRG/Alicia were put in the same sides of the bracket even though they had been in the same groups.
 
The conflict was soon discovered after the broadcast ended and the necessary measures were taken to solve the situation. It was decided that HyuN and Alicia will switch places so that Happy will play Alicia, Not HyuN, and StarDust plays HyuN instead of Alicia. Luckily the players or their managers could be contacted right away and the new bracket brought to their attention.
