- Or more like the Football World Cup running right now:
Round 1 is roughly half of the players, with the lower ratings.
Two winners from each group go to Round 2.
Round 2 is rest of the players plus winners from Round 1.
One winner from each group goes to the Final.
This scheme in work last year 2017 would look like this:
Steiger, jrton80, AreVidar, OdinHimself, edmond-dantes, animals, xerxes, altti, epm180, Kratzer, Tuireann, casshern, sqAree, Waegn, MrTopom, Hagbard, Patterson, Thanir, Fraech, DoktorKarlsrud, JKRS, emabear35, bigwurm91, tomsavini, Lbalassone, Marcin, Rasmusruge, Brench, gokstad, Ozgen97, Kihtan, Plantagenet, Agmundr, evando1189
1. xerxes, Fraech, DoktorKarlsrud, JKRS, evando1189
2. Brench, Kihtan, MrTopom, emabear35, Ozgen97
3. Marcin, jrton80, Waegn, tomsavini, gokstad
4. Tuireann, AreVidar, Patterson, Lbalassone, Rasmusruge
Perhaps xerxes, Brench, Marcin, Tuireann, AreVidar, jrton80, Kihtan and Fraech would've won and gone to Round 2.
1. casshern, Agmundr, xerxes, Brench
2. Plantagenet, Bigwurm91, Kratzer, Marcin
3. OdinHimself, altti, epm180, Tuireann
4. edmond-dantes, Hagbard, Steiger, AreVidar, Fraech
5. animals, sqaree, Thanir, jrton80, Kihtan
Perhaps casshern, Plantagenet, OdinHimself, edmond-dantes and animals would've won and gone to the Final.
Round 3, the Final.
casshern, Plantagenet, OdinHimself, edmond-dantes, animals
And as we know, Plantagenet won.
