It's based on the pool play format within the event format section through the "full information" link provided.

Pool A: 1,4,5,8/Keev, RTD, S-U, Kinetic
Pool B: 2,3,6,7/Kayane, LP, Hawkeye, Link

Last time I'm almost positive it was

Pool A: 1,4,6,8/Keev, S-U, Wing-Zero, Hawkeye
Pool B: 2,3,5,7/RTD, RyuJin, Lost Providence, Kayane

Seeds are based on the previous championship top 8 so I expected quite some time a long time ago that it would be...

Pool A: 1,4,6,8/Keev, RTD, Hawkeye, Kinetic
Pool B: 2,3,5,7/Kayane, LP, S-U, Link

If I didn't make any errors on the seed placements for the last time then it appears there was some shifting to keep Hawkeye the old winner, and Keev out of the same pool. That's if I didn't get my seeds wrong on before.

This is random but I find it funny that literally everytime I come here the only character i ever seen at the top of the website is Kilik. Makes me miss him all the time.

You can change that on your settings. Maybe a long time ago you made it so only Kilik comes up instead of the random character. I know with mine I always have Mitsu at the top of the site.

That's pretty nifty, I never knew that. I'll make it so I can only see Siegfried all the time.

Well, I sure chose the best possible time to have a thumb/wrist injury. And by "best," I of course mean worst. Chicago, Kayane, be gentle. =(
