The tournament formats are a big debate in the current competitive scene. Each team requires a very strong presence and the help of the seeding in order to win their matches.
North with nothing to play for (guaranteed 1st) and losing to Liquid, who thus go through, puts another asterisk next to this format

But if a team qualifies and they still have a match to play, it really puts a big question mark on the format. Team North losing to Team LIquid is one such instance where the tournament was at stake for one team, while the other team had already qualified on first place.
