Good news for you today! We’re enhancing three of our tournament structures, reinforcing Toornament’s leadership in terms of tournament structures and options.
Let’s have a look at the new features!
Swiss system: new pairing rules
Our community has been very happy since we released our Swiss system. Today, we’re enhancing it, adding new pairing algorithms, to fine tune way you want your participants to meet each other.
The default pairing method so far was “Score Group + Random”, which pairs random players with similar Win / Draw / Lose performances in the group.
With our update, you are given the choice with 3 additional methods :
- Score Groups + Adjacent: The strongest participant of a group is paired with next strongest one of the same group, and so on.
- Score Groups + Balanced: The new default setting. The strongest participant from the first half is paired with next strongest one of the second half, and so on.
- Score groups + Opposite: The strongest opponent is paired with the weakest one.
Group stage: new tie breaker options
Deciding the final standings in a group with tied participants is always a tricky situation. We thus added new tie breaker options to help you rule this out.
You can stack up all those rules, the one on the top being the first rule to apply, while the bottom being the last rule to apply.
Note that we’ve added three new rules dedicated to the match score: match score for, against and difference. You can apply these rules to the overall performance, or just focus on the performances between the tied participants.
A League of its own
Last but not least, our League structure has been largely enhanced, now boasting great features:
- league’s divisions
- match day view
- the same new tie breakers rules as in Groups and Swiss system
We hope you’ll enjoy and use these new features and options, stay tuned for more!
