A swiss bracket will have everyone play a match and pair people of similar records against each other for each round. This will continue for as many rounds as the Tournament Admin specifies for the tournament.

  • Ex. Player A won their first and second round matches and therefore has a record of 2-0 (2 wins 0 losses). In the third round they will play someone with a record of 2-0.
  • Ex. Player B won their first round match and lost their second round match and has a record of 1-1 (1 win 1 loss). In the third round they will play against a player who has a record of 1-1.


If two teams are tied for a given placement the tiebreaker is determined in this order:

  • Direct Encounter - If the two teams played against each other directly the winner is given the higher placement.
  • Strength of Opponents - If still tied or if the teams had not played each other directly, each tied team is given a score based on the strength of their opponents. The team with the higher score is given the higher placement.
  • Strength of Opponents’ Opponents - If still tied, each tied team is given a score based on the strength of their opponents’ opponents. The team with the higher score is given the higher placement.


If three or more teams are tied for a given placement the tiebreaker is determined in this order:

  • Strength of Opponents - Each tied team is given a score based on the strength of their opponents. The team with the highest score is given the higher placement. If two teams are still tied a direct encounter tiebreaker will take place if applicable.
  • Strength of Opponents’ Opponents - If still tied, each tied team is given a score based on the strength of their opponents’ opponents. The team with the highest score is given the higher placement. If two teams are still tied a direct encounter tiebreaker will take place if applicable.
