What is Swiss System?
In each round, contestants are paired up against a contestant with the same win-loss record*. If there are an odd number of contestants with the same win-loss record, a contestant will be randomly paired against a random contestant from the next best win-loss record. If there are an odd number of contestants remaining overall, a random contestant with the worst win-loss record will receive a default win*.
The number of rounds in the tournament may vary depending on the amount of checked-in players. Please visit the website to see the number of rounds once the tournament is live. Players drop from the tournament after 4 losses. From this point on no matches are assigned to them and they will be able to see the tournament results once the tournament is over.
*Except in the first round
