Swiss Update

As of Friday, Swiss tournaments finally started running as they should. Before then, when a participant was removed mid-tournament, he/she remained in the pairing pool for future rounds and auto-forfeited. This led to unnecessary byes, potentially creating unfair tournament pathways for some users. No longer!

Also, organizers now have the option to review results before tournaments end -- they normally end as soon as the last score is submitted.

Unfortunately, a couple other features didn't make the cut for the update, but they're almost ready to go and will sneak in soon:
  • sign-up caps and waiting lists
  • country icons
  • prediction support for the winners bracket of double elim tournies
