Thoughts on a Swiss Style Competition

Postby chapcrap on Sun Jul 14, 2013 10:41 am

So, I've done a couple of these tournaments and I've seen other people do them as well. And now, challonge.com allows you to create Swiss style competitions on their website, making it even easier. I wouldn't mind a little Swiss style. Who agrees?

From the example above the pairings appear flawed, you had 4 players going into the final round on 4-1, 3 of them had played each other, the 4th only one of the joint leaders and as such should have played one of the two not faced in the final round.

Typically the competition would go until a winner could be determined. So, there isn't a set number of rounds necessarily. What happened in that tournament is that after the last round, there were 3 people that were 5-1. Beer Baron had beaten israel. and israel. had beaten epjh, so Beer Baron was the winner based on strength of wins.

I do understand what you're saying, but it's kind of taken care of in the tournament format.

That is true. All wars would have to be finished first. Or at least the outcomes known...

All games must be done before new round, as it influences who play whom.

This could only work for dubs, anything other is just overkill.

You're right...

Maybe something smaller, like 10 game sets and not full wars?
