It is no trouble at all. We picked win loss to qualify for State Championship. We don't care about seeding points. If you can play the game well and fight hard to win even when you are behind, other teams will notice and pick you to play in the elimination round.
Seeding points is only important for the top 8-12 teams to become alliance captains. If you are not an alliance captain, high seeding scores will not mean anything at all. We did not pick based on ranking that use seeding points. Some teams used to do that in past years but I don't think too many teams will do that this year with this weird system.
