I have been working on a Single Elimination tourney.
Yes the Bracket Type on the surface is the same type, but some of the internals were are hard to make some changes in.
I decide to create a new type to insure the previously played tourneys would still be accessible.
The SE supports Seeding by Rating, it also distributes the Byes evenly among the top seeds and in general
provides for proper brackets. It can even maintain a ASCII bracket.
(which is really an extension of the POST form I added the the basic Tourney type (foundation of all tourney types)
I am also in the process of testing the player clocks with LONG timeouts (days not minutes) to entertain multi-day tourneys.
So one questions I do have...
Now that I have Seeding by Rating I was wondering what other seeding would be fun or useful to have.
Clearly Random (like Brackets are) is a good one, here is my working list:
- Registration Order
- Name (what the heck )
I would choose Rating as the default
I am not going to change the Bracket type in any way
