Unrelated note: Kind of sad that neither Chomp nor Blacksmith were in the Desperado.  I was really hoping to see at least one hammer in the top 16.  But Chomp is not going to happen at 0-3 and Blacksmith is really long odds at 1-2.

From what I heard, more than 8 teams entered, and production picked which ones got in.  So it's possible that Chomp/Blacksmith entered but weren't picked.
