Alright cool, hopefully there is indeed an error and some matches between the top contenders and the third-place contender missing.

Would it help if posted all the blocks? It looks like it's just my weird formatting...
Kai-V, quickly regarding the finals, it was @[Kei] who told us to do the finals like that. Before we always used to take the top 3/4 people (depending on blocks) and have a final round Robin.
Kei then told me that we shouldn't do that and that we should award 1st to the top player automatically and assign the other places in the same way, only holding tiebreakers when needed.
We have been holding "finals" in the way Kei told us for the past few tournaments now. If we should have been holding finals like you say, Kai-V, then we will do that from now on, but I ask you to confirm this with Kei.

I'll go over -HB-'s spreadsheet and help out finding the missing matches.


Edit:
Kei's message from a while back
Wah, I know we discussed it, but that was definitely not final. Since he told you guys to do it like that, obviously it will be fine for processing as-is, however the Event Guide totally does not say that and I was actually arguing with him about statistics and how the difference between records is not that huge because you are always talking about just a few matches that could have been luck-imposed.

Perhaps I should have been the one to process Toronto tournaments, to see this happening way before, then... At all the events I have attended, the finals have always been 'by the law'.

By all means you are right. We should have really been abiding by the Event Guide, but I didn't realise that the committee were all on the same page.
Since Event Guide is a solid written source, we will go by that for all future events. Sorry about that.
We really should standardise this kind of thing for all regions, since this means everyone has been doing things differently, which may be an issue and lead to inconsistent rankings between regions.
OK so the Faces and Credits are distributed, except the Shard of Amaterios again. Unless I am mistaken, there is a draw between Xcalibur Lad and Balance Blader in terms of most consecutive wins. Therefore, next time you have the three-way tie to conduct with the same circumstances as in January (Odin legal, no parts released after January 23rd) and also this new draw, just without any Dual Layer-related parts. @[Manicben] @[-HB-]
@[Manicben] and @[-HB-], it looks like I forgot to recheck the results before distributing the Credits and Faces, but the match between Manicben and Syphon/Xcalibur Lad is missing. Can you update the spreadsheet as soon as possible and let me know?
