Selecting a single elimination format allows the TD to specify other options for the event.

  1. The event can exclude a Bronze medal match completely.
  2. A custom seeding configuration can be set to give automatic bye’s to the top 8 or 16 teams.
  • Top 8 teams get a bye to the Round of 16 – this benefits the top seeds by delaying their entry into the bracket and also benefits the lower seeded players by not having them face the top seeds in the first round.
  • For large brackets, you can also give a bye to seeds 9 through 16, delaying their entry until the Round of 32 where they will be matched up against either each other or surviving teams from the earlier rounds, before facing the top seeds in the Round of 16.
