It can’t yet, but it’s on my list to improve arena assignments in tournaments where there are not enough arenas. E.g. if you enter results for 4 groups there should be a “draw arenas” button that will assign 4 arenas in one go (and respect the “balanced” arena selection if enabled).
There is not and unfortunately it’s not as simple as it sounds.
These out-of-band games are difficult to manage. I’m not saying I won’t get there, I’m just saying it’s harder than it sounds.
- From your tournament go back to the global level
- Click the “Players” tab (the global players tab, not the tournament players tab)
- Find the player in the list and hit the edit button
A half-win doesn’t do anything in a knockout tournament, but in a regular head-to-head match play a win equals 1 point. So you can choose if a bye awards a full win (1 point) or a half win (0.5 points). Some prefer one over the other.
You’re not the first to request creating a three player group to eliminate byes in head-to-head knockout tournaments. I’ll get there eventually!
