Single elimination bracket tournaments
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.
- See seeding. Random seeding it not an option for this tournament format.
- Bracket size
- Determines the size of the bracket that will be built. 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. Similarly, if you have four players, pick the eight-player bracket size.
