STWC2014 Bracket stage
« on: November 21, 2014, 04:10:59 pm »
Hello fellow Sheeptaggers,

As of this moment we have 6 teams signed up for the Sheep Tag World Cup.
There are 4 styles of Brackets to choose from:
- Round Robin
- Single / Double Elimination
- SWISS

Each tournament style has its own advantages and disadvantages:

Round Robin:
Advantages
All teams/players play each other
True results
Seeding is not important
No one is eliminated
Disadvantages
Requires many games
Many games will not be close
Very long tournament
No climax final

Single Elimination:
Advantages
Easiest to understand and run
Good for large numbers
Doesn't take too long
Disadvantages
Seeding is very important
If you lose one game you are out of the tournament
The 2 best teams might start out against eachother / Random results

Double Elimination:
[Compared to Single Elimination]
Advantages
If you lose the first game you can still be in the finals.
Seeding is little less important
Less chance of random results
Disadvantages
Takes a little longer

SWISS:
Advantages
Takes way less time than Round Robin.
True results
Seeding is not important
No one is eliminated
Disadvantages
Many games will not be close
No climax final



If there are enough teams we can also mix too brackets together like in 2008 & 2009, they had 8 teams in Round Robin -> first 4 teams go to Single Elim Bracket.

I think that like in 2008 is the best way to do it or using SWISS instead of Round Robin, so the qualifiers don't take too long?

Dates
How shall we handle the games? In round robin everyone can play each other whenever they want or a set date?
Same for the final bracket ( single / double elim )?

What are your opinions?

You can always combine two formats so teams will fight eachother and then the top 4 will go to a single elimination bracket, so you'll have a climax :)
