Seeding and Pairings Last Update: 1/25/2005

Tourney Pairings is done automatically based on the Players' Seeding when the Tourney Registration is closed.

Eliters adopts 3 Seeding Styles:

Rating: Seeding of Players will be according to their To-date Cumulative Rating, the Player with the highest Rating will get the #1 Seed. This option is valid in all Tourney formats except the Super Robin (SR).

Quarterly (Q, Qtry ): Seeding of Players will be according to their Current Quarterly Rating, the Player with the highest Rating will get the #1 Seed. This Seeding style allows active players with highest rating to be seeded at the top.

Random (R, Rdom): Seeding of Players will be decided arbitrarily. This option is valid in all Tourney formats including the Super Robin (SR). This style allows more chances for people to play people they normally aren't paired with when using the other Rating Seeding Styles.

After the Seeding is identified for all Players, Pairings will be done as follows:

System Select (SS) Partners Tourneys

Teams will be formed first by splitting the Players in 2 equal Groups, and joining Players according to their seed, the first of each group together, the second, etc..

Example: In a 16-Player SS Tourney the first group will include Players Seeded 1 to 8, and the second group will include Players Seeded 9 to 16:

  • Team Seed 1 will be composed of Player Seed 1 and Player Seed 9.
  • Team Seed 2 will be composed of Player Seed 2 and Player Seed 10.
  • Team Seed 3 will be composed of Player Seed 3 and Player Seed 11.
  • Team Seed 4 will be composed of Player Seed 4 and Player Seed 12.
  • Team Seed 5 will be composed of Player Seed 5 and Player Seed 13.
  • Team Seed 6 will be composed of Player Seed 6 and Player Seed 14.
  • Team Seed 7 will be composed of Player Seed 7 and Player Seed 15.
  • Team Seed 8 will be composed of Player Seed 8 and Player Seed 16.

Single Elimination (SE) and Double Elimination (DE) Tourneys

Tourneys have certain base sizes 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 Players/Teams. If the number of registered Players does not reach one of these sizes, the last empty seeds will be filled with BYEs.

In a 4-Player SE or DE Tourney:

  • Seed 1 will be paired with Seed 4.
  • Seed 2 will be paired with Seed 3.

In an 8-Player SE or DE Tourney:

  • Seed 1 will be paired with Seed 8.
  • Seed 4 will be paired with Seed 5.
  • Seed 2 will be paired with Seed 7.
  • Seed 3 will be paired with Seed 6.

In a 16-Player SE or DE Tourney:

  • Seed 1 will be paired with Seed 16.
  • Seed 2 will be paired with Seed 15.
  • Seed 3 will be paired with Seed 14.
  • Seed 4 will be paired with Seed 13.
  • Seed 5 will be paired with Seed 12.
  • Seed 6 will be paired with Seed 11.
  • Seed 7 will be paired with Seed 10.
  • Seed 8 will be paired with Seed 9.

Round Robin (RR) and Super Robin (SR) Tourneys

Pairings is not important in RR Tourneys, as the size is always 4 Players/Teams, and each Player/Team should play at least one Match with each of the other Players/Teams.

In SR Tourneys, Pairings table is designed in a way to make sure that no 2 Players/Teams play as opponents in 2 rounds.

Seeding in all RR and SR Tourneys is Random; the idea is to have different Pairings in every tourney.
