Best 4 person Tournament Structure


#1

What do you think is the best way to run a 4-person tournament and why?

Double elimination? Swiss?


#2

Round Robin, not close. You get to play 3 full matches, filling out time in what otherwise could be a very short event, and everyone gets the chance to play everyone else.

Thank you! So the person with the most prestige at the end is the winner?


#4

problem with round robin is that you can end with no player actually being chosen as the winner.

For instance Let’s assume we have 4 players ABCD

A>B
A>C
AC
B>D
C<D

so in the end the final score is
A 2-1
B 2-1
C 0-3
Now with netrunner we have best of 2 scenarios, but still, the issue persists that you can have a tournament end with no true winner


#5

You use the same list of tiebreakers you would in Swiss. If it comes to it flip a coin. RR is better than the alternatives.


#6

How about this bracket for 4 players? Each player gets to play 3 or 4 games.
