Tournament Systems

Complete Elimination
Complete Elimination

All teams play the same number of games. The winners play for the top half of the places, the losers for the bottom half.

2. Round Robin System

All teams are divided into groups of equal size. Within a group, each team plays against all the others.

Ranking List

Due to the limited screen size of smartphones, the number of groups is limited to 8 and the number of entries per group to 16.

3. Swiss Ladder System

The swiss ladder system has its origin in chess, but is becoming very popular also in other sports. The system is an intelligent mix of the round robin and the elimination system. It assures that

  • All teams have the same number of matches
  • Players of different skill levels can participate on the same tournament
  • Most of the matches, especially in the middle and end of the tournament, are between teams of nearly equal strength
  • Each team plays against many others, but never twice against the same.
Match Plan
Ranking

There will be a random draw in the first round.
After each round of the tournament, an interim ranking list is created, according to which the draw for the following round is made. The attempt is made to let teams with the same number of wins play against each other. However, it is important that no game occurs twice during the tournament!

4. Super Mêlée / MonsterDYP (Draw Your Partner)

The Super Mêlée - also called MonsterDYP (Draw Your Partner) - new teams with changing partners are put together in each round. The software re-draws the teams in each round by random, preventing the same pairs to play twice with each other.

Seeded players are placed to different teams. So for example mixed tournaments can be organised by seeding all men to position 1. Then in each round they get paired with an (unseeded) woman. The same works for tournaments with players of very unequal strength. When professionals (which get seeded) get paired with unseeded hobby players, automatically balanced pairings are created.

The player with the most victories wins the tournament.
