There is only one tie breaker listed on the wiki and that's head to head result. What happens if there's a 3 way tie with a rock paper scissors scenario going on? Team A beats team B, B beats C, C beats A and they win every other game.

I think it is random when tiebreakers cannot settle it.

Personally I would rather see it just remain a tie.

It would probably depend on order of players, so one of the head-to-head matches wouldn't count.

Example: Player A, B, and C all went 16-3, with A > B > C > A

First the program resolves A vs. B, so A > B

Then it resolves B vs. C, so B > C

So A, B, C are now 1, 2, 3

Fizzer said it was random in cases of 3+ ties.
