So on weeks where I don't have a few hours to use my weekly draft tickets, I'll usually just queue up and rare draft. Once the drafting is done, I usually concede right away.

Last week when I did it, I ended up winning 2 packs. How is this even possible? If I forfeit the tournament before a match even starts, shouldn't I automatically lose?

Maybe someone else did the same and they were your opponent?

Only case I can think of is that someone left during the draft picks and you got a bye before you forfeited?

If two people did this there would be 5 people with 0 losses, and I believe that one person of the 5 would get 2 packs. Not sure.

Was this Swiss or Competitive?

Competitive.

Then it must be matching up two droppers in round 1 and picking one at random to move forward to semi-finals and give a bye to whoever is there. I suppose that could be intended to avoid giving any byes in round 1, but if I were one of the people who actually stayed I'd be rather upset at some of the prize pool being stolen by someone who didn't even play. This should be reported as a bug. The swiss matchmaking should not be used for Competitive. Byes should be eliminated at first opportunity so that players who are actually there can advance.

That's what I was thinking. I kinda feel bad that I got free packs for doing absolutely nothing.

Can a mod move this into the bug report section please?
