Those eliminated in 1st round would be completely impossible, which I'm fine with they wouldn't get 1 win. But the next few rounds would eliminate several players as well, and if ur limited to 5-12 those teams will dry up pretty quickly. Most of the winning team might not even get the medal...

I'd really like to know what kind of tournament set-up you guys are talking about. I'm running a Large-Team Tournament right now where pretty much everybody is eligible for the medal and we play three 1 v 1 games, 4 doubles, 2 trips and only 1 quad game, per round, per team.

I'm thinking completely different styles than IcePack.

Here's a quick, easy scenario.

8 teams. 12 players each (ABCDEFGHIJKL)

Simple standard best of 9 bracket each round. 3 quads, 3 trips, 3 dubs

Quads 1 = ABCD

Quads 2 = EFGH

Quads 3 = IJKL

Trips 1 = ABC

Trips 2 = DEF

Trips 3 = GHI

Dubs 1 = JK

Dubs 2 = LA

Dubs 3 = BC

9 games each player must play 3 to qualify for a team medal. Only players A, B, & C would qualify for a medal based on the first round.

Second round you could go:

Quads 1 = DEFG

Quads 2 = HIJK

Quads 3 = LABC

Trips 1 = DEF

Trips 2 = GHI

Trips 3 = JKL

Dubs 1 = AB

Dubs 2 = CD

Dubs 3 = EF

Now you must have played in 6 of the 18 games. And 0 players would qualify for a team medal after Round 2.

It only gets worse as you go through more and more rounds.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you change it to 5 Quads, 2 trips, & 2 dubs

Quads 1 = ABCD

Quads 2 = EFGH

Quads 3 = IJKL

Quads 4 = ABCD

Quads 5 = EFGH

Trips 1 = IJK

Trips 2 = LAB

Dubs 1 = CD

Dubs 2 = EF

Still must play 3 games to qualify. Only players A, B, C, D, E, & F would qualify.

Round 2:

Quads 1 = GHIJ

Quads 2 = KLAB

Quads 3 = CDEF

Quads 4 = GHIJ

Quads 5 = KLAB

Trips 1 = CDE

Trips 2 = FGH

Dubs 1 = IJ

Dubs 2 = KL

Must have played in 6 of 18 games to qualify. All players only have 5 games. Again, this only gets worse the more rounds you progress. And 0 players would qualify for a team medal after Round 2.
