What is a Seeded Tournament?
How do I run a Seeded Tournament?
The tournament begins by determining the number of players or teams that will be participating in the tournament. Once the number of players or teams has been decided you will need to print the corresponding tournament bracket from below. If you use the brackets below the seeding's are very simple and are always done the same way. The brackets are marked with numbers along the left hand side. The numbers run from 1 to the number of teams participating in the tournament. The number 1 ranked team goes on the blank line marked "1", the number 2 ranked team goes on the blank line marked "2" and so on. A seeded tournament is set up so that the highest ranked team plays the worst team, the second highest ranked team players the second lowest ranked team and so on. When there are an odd number of teams in the tournament the highest seeds receive "byes". This can get confusing if you are designing your own brackets, that's we we have saved you the trouble and created them for you. Those are the basics for starting a Seeded tournament, visit the "How To Run A Tournament" links above for complete details on running an entire tournament.
What is the difference between "Blind Draw" and "Seeded"?
Unlike Seeded Tournaments, Blind Draw Tournaments are organized in a way the players are not ranked based on previous results or experience. The match ups are based solely on the luck of the draw.
