Beware that the Standings page is completely wrong (fault of the programmer!). You can click on each player to see how many rounds they played to get a sense for how quickly they were eliminated. I think it was just one player eliminated after 4 rounds (the minimum possible)

Thanks!
FYI: MP shows that everyone won in every match of every round.
Everyone’s a winner! Participation trophies for all! :wink:

I noticed that one earlier as well. I know the reason, but the story is not good enough to be worth typing up :slight_smile:

If you want to keep the baseball metaphor in a quicker format, how about 9 strikes (aka 3 outs, 1 inning)?

…or abandon baseball and go for nine lives. :smile_cat:

@mrboboto @Snailman Standings and Matches pages now display something useful instead of totally random things: https://matchplay.events/live/zzd5/standings

Aw… but I like totally random things!


#211

It’s the best way to get my name at the top of the standings!


#212

I like how this format – unlike group match play, where bottom 2 get strikes – differentiates between 1st and 2nd, and between 3rd and 4th.

My sentiments exactly! It’s fairer to all involved. I chose to run it Swiss style this time, but may switch it up to balanced pairings next time around so you get to play with different opponents.
