I just laid 1000 sq ft of Coretec Plus Luxury vinyl plank 5 x 48” each. When my installer didnt show up, I decided to do it myself. I started with one row and staggered adjacent rows with seams 16” apart equally for adjacent rows. So, what I ended up with is every 4th row seam lines up exactly. While it looks great, I failed to randomly stagger adjacent rows. All seams are 16” art equally and every seam lines up with seams 4 boards away from every plank. Should lid I take a chill pill and accept the pattern or tear up the floor and start over? Thanks in advance.

Staggering is entirely aesthetic for vinyl - as long as you can live with looking at it, it'll perform just fine as it is. I wouldn't make any changes unless you really can't live with the pattern

Actually some vinyl is intentionally made into a pattern like that in commercial applications, mostly glue down. Won't hurt nuthin. If you read the installation guidelines it does state an end joint spacing requirement. You just don't want the end joints to close.
