This is true, and this is how it is applied in Elite Single elimination (SE) 1x1 and 2x2 tourneys.

We had to structure it this way as the only practical system solution we found for the unique Hearts situation of 1x1x1x1 while eliminating the bots usage. It took us weeks to come with this design and to implement it in a practical way to guarantee that the Byes are in pairs assigned to the top ranked players first. If we try to sort the players in a way to have the top rated player play with a low rated player in the 2nd round this will push us to have the lower rated players in the second group with no byes and this was not practical system wise.

We will reconsider the pairings system as soon as the system design team has the time to do it; in the mean time I see no harm of the 4 top players playing together in the 2nd round. If you are so unhappy with it, why not ask for random seeding?

A last note, please do not use CAPS, it is not allowed in our Clubs, because, it is very hard to read.
