Hey everyone,

I tested the tournament options and have a question to the size ("brackets"): Is this the effective amount of players that is in the tournament, independent of the amount of players that I invited?

Because I invited 4 players and had only one bracket so the tournament started with the second player that joined.

Could someone confirm this? :)

the number of brackets is basically the number of rounds in a single elimination. so with 1 player teams and one bracket it would start with two players. if you had set it to two brackets it would have started with 4 and so on.

brackets is how many consecutive wins are required in order to win the tournament.. if you have a 1v1 tournament with 1 bracket, it is 1 1v1 game.. 2 brackets, is 2 1v1 games, of which the winners play each other.. 3 brackets is 4 1v1 games, the winners play each other, and then the winners of those once again play each other to determine an end tourney winner.

this is an 8 bracket tourney

the amount of players that can play is decided by the number of brackets and the size of the teams/number of teams
