Single elimination

Single elimination brackets are a simple way to organize tournament playoffs. Players are organized into a bracket using a seeding method (typically manual seeding). Each match is a head-to-head match between two players. The winner of each match will advance in the bracket, and the loser is eliminated from the tournament.

Match Play will automatically create a bronze match for the losers of the semifinal round to determine the third and fourth place finishers in the tournament. A four-player match to determine 5th through 8th place will also be created. If you do not wish to play out these extra matches, they can be ignored.

Configuration options

Bracket size

Determines the size of the bracket that will be built. 4/8/16/32/64/128 player brackets are available. Pick the next size up if you do not have the perfect amount of players; byes will be created accordingly. For example, if you have 24 players, pick the 32-player bracket size.

Best-of-X matches

If you want to play each match in the bracket as a best-of-x match (like best-of-3 or best-of-7), set this option accordingly. When entering results for a match, you can enter partial results as you go and the match won't be marked as completed until a player has enough wins to satisfy the best-of requirements.
