Welp, time to say that I apologize for any hostile rants & bants that I have directed at teams or people. I'm done with the trolling in this community, maybe someday we can all grow up and stop **** talking each other which leads to making invisible walls of resentment between the clans and people and the community.

Keep it real, see u on the battlefield.
When Taco king becomes the ruler of this world, we will make this planet a better place. Surrender to our army, there will be peace if you serve us, let Taco king lead and yall live happily for the rest of your unworthy lives!

Is it possible to get some clarification on the nature of our Swiss system? Does the system allow for repeat matches or not? If not, the system is little more than a randomized round robin and the whole "pairing teams up based on performance" is non-existent.

Only reason I ask is I thought Challonge attempts to avoid repeat matches at all costs. In other words, everyone would end up playing everyone once.

As this is a 7 week tourney, this would really just translate into a round robin and not a Swiss tourney. Just wanted to get some clarification on this.
Apparently my services are no longer required. While Season 2 is certainly not over and I hadn't even posted the concluding thread, clearly my job was considered done.
glad to see the new admins are being prompt about eliminating everything BAD from last season

It's probably not avoid at all cost. That would make no sense. It tries to limit repeat matches though.

There won't be any repeat matches. By choosing to have a 7 week tourney with 8 teams, it is pretty much a round robin, yes.

If we had, say, 12 teams with a 7 week tourney, then the true nature of a Swiss ladder would come into play, and your 7 matches would be against seven teams who are close to you in the standings. Quote from wiki:

Quote
Competitors meet one-to-one in each round and are paired using a predetermined set of rules designed to ensure that as far as possible a competitor plays competitors with the same current score, subject to not playing the same opponent more than once.

This is another reason why the single-elim is still being included; that's where the rematches will happen. Top 4 teams, just as before.

That was my "complaint" about using the Swiss system from the beginning. It's great for making close matches and shorter tournaments when there are a lot of teams (preferably with some form of seeding, elo or other prior ranking), but with low team numbers it's essentially a round-robin with more rules.

The Swiss System should work to make the middle part of the tourny the most interesting, with the closest matches... But quickly devolve into a round robin with all of the worst match-ups after that.

I'm not familiar with the options on Challonge, but perhaps fewer total matchups should have been chosen. (Such as lasting 5 weeks.)

I was just asking because that is not what was sold to the captains during the captains meeting.

We were informed that it was swiss, with a selling point being that there would be closer matches. However, what you really did was just maintain the old round robin and pretend that it was a different format.

I don't see why, outside limitations with Challonge, that there can't be repeat matches.
