To set up matches, you need to select the specific division for which you want to create matches. If your event includes different categories within a division, you can click on the "(+) Show individual age categories" link to further refine matches based on category and division.
Combine with other division(s)
Combining multiple divisions can be beneficial in cases where a division has a limited number of participants, and you wish to merge those registrants with another division before creating matches.
Manual Seed, Blind Draw
Our system provides you with the flexibility to either manually assign rankings to participants before creating matches, or allow the system to automatically assign rankings. Rankings can be particularly useful in scenarios such as a single elimination with 6 participants, where the top seed (highest ranked participant) would face off against the lowest seed (lowest ranked participant) in the first round. This ensures that the top two participants do not meet each other in the initial round.
Color code players
You also have the option to color code participants in the matches, which can aid in visual organization, especially when dealing with a large number of participants.
In this section, you have the ability to assign rankings to each participant (if the "Manual Seed" setting was chosen).
You can add comments on each participant, which can be beneficial for noting specific details, such as expected late arrival times. This feature proves valuable in the process of scheduling matches, ensuring that any special circumstances or scheduling constraints are taken into consideration.
When the "Color code players" option is selected, you have the ability to customize the color of each participant. By default, participants are assigned random colors.
Display rank in numerical
order on match sheet
Enabling this option can be beneficial when you have participants with rankings such as 10th, 15th, 17th, and 20th. If checked, these participants will be displayed as ranked 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively on the actual match sheet, instead of their original rankings of 10, 15, 17, and 20.
