3) Direct Match against each other, if same number of wins
For this one, I might say, "3) In the case of a tie with 2 players, the winner will be determined by the match already played between the two. No final match will be played."
I like adamosad rules posted upper for 3)in case of 2 players :
If same number of wins, Direct Match against each otherin case of more than 2 players
sub-league ranking for that players only according to rules 1 and 2 ( => And then direct match between the 2 last top players if necessary)
4) Accumulated score of defeated players (for each player, sum the scores of the players he won against), if among three or more players, direct matches equal out (e.g. 1-1, or 2-2,...).In case we can distinguish players with rule 3 then use the rule 4
For this one, I might say, "4) In the case of a tie with multiple players, the direct matches already played against each other will count 3 point for win and 1 point for loss to determine the highest 2 players and then the league match already played between those 2 players will determine the league champion."
Rules 4) Accumulated score of defeated players (for each player, sum the scores of the players he won against), if among three or more players, direct matches equal out (e.g. 1-1, or 2-2,...).
This is completly different.
I mean with this rules that all equal players get points (points league standing) of each players he beat during the league. Then I compare all sum and define the ranking.
With a Example with 5 players
A line = Player Result vs A, vs B, vs C, vs D, vs E, Win, Loss, Points
A : - W L W W 3 1 10
B : L - W W L 2 2 8
C : W L - L W 2 2 8
D : L L W - W 2 2 8
E : L W L L - 1 3 5(I agree, normally I don't do the rules 4 in that case cause B win over the 2 others C & D, but it is just to explain the point describe upper)
Then B get 8pts for C and 8Pts for D = 16Pts
C get 10 pts for A and 5 Pts for E = 15Pts
D get 8 Pts for C and 5 Pts for E = 13 Pts(It's in the same spirit as swiss rules)
5) Direct Match of best 2-ply scores-players, if same accumulated score.
Rule 5 can be eliminated.
I must add that I like playoffs for players with same points, but that would be more time consuming and a bit more complicated than this method.
Rules 5 is always usefull in case we have to distinguish only 2 players in any case.
Is it more clear now for every body. Fell free to correct this add comments ;-)
But you can see now that the rules become complicate and players who look at the rules for the first time can be scared
So If I add this to my rules Page, I will certainly let the summarize rules and add a link for the complete
