Schedule - Question!

Hi everyone,

So I have a question for you. The schedule is pretty much ready. However we have 2 options:

  1. Same simple knockout as usual: link here
  2. Or a new 'double elimination' format: link here

The double elimination brings advantages:

  • You have to lose twice to be out (so less need to worry if you draw a pro in round 1)
  • So even if you lose in round 1, you can still reach the final in the end
  • It gives more games for everyone, so more fun!

But it also has disadvantages:

  • The schedule is very fast, giving less breaks
  • More stress on the mods to update the schedule
  • It is more complicated to understand (we have tried to explain it as best as possible on the schedule)
  • It finishes an hour later (on a school night)

 

So, do you guys want the basic format or the new format to try it? I apologise for the very short notice. 

 

Note: either way the initial 2 rounds are exactly the same. So the draw is unaffected. I've not put the players in yet to save a biased opinion based on who someone has drawn in round 1. The random numbers were done by RickMave today (thanks Rick <3 ) and both schedules are ready with the names in place. So we just have to choose one.

 

Thanks!

2. Double elimination

The biggest advantage of double elimination over single elimination is that it is less random and the results will be more likely to correspond with players skills. In single elimination, top players can be knocked out in first round.

Double elimination. It's always nice in 1v1 and team tournaments.

Double elimination.

In my opinion the advantages > disadvantages.

It would be nice to try a new format :3

Ok thanks guys. I think the reactions speak for themselves. I'll put the double elimination schedule on.
