what happens if the amount of wins is tied

I had a quick look on Wiki and it says:


In the event of a tie at the end of the tournament, the winner is decided by who won when the tied players played each other


so that makes sense if 2 people are tied but what happens in the event that 3 or more people are tied and you get the following scenario

Player A beats Player B
Player B beats Player C
Player C beats Player A

Does it just tie the game or is there another parameter that decides the winner

A winner is randomly selected. And then the winner can post it to his profile page for eternal glory.

oh i see... you mean the battle between 6th 7th and 8th

yes it does look like it was random. Do you know for sure or could there have been some other reason for the positioning?

Fizzer can you confirm this?

its just that i am planing to start a tournament with lots of small round robins and if this sort of thing is random then it could really mess things up

Tournament between a few of my friends, we all won 2 matches and lost 2, somehow I came last. I am unsure whether it depends on who you lost against or not.

In this one the top three are tied at 3-2 and it gets randomly decided.

Random doesn't seem like a great method.

I suppose you could add your own criteria in a CLOT though for breaking ties.
