We have a new tool in our belts for the Tournaments! That is now we have the option to select different group seeding options.
Random - This is what we have been using and is what it is. Random seeding.
Normalized groups - This is this first new tool we have. Normalized groups is basically making the average win rate of each group similar.
That means that If you take the average Win Rate of all of the teams in a group, add them together, and divide that number by the number of teams in that group. That number will be very similar to the other groups if we do the same with them.
Groups of Death - This option is for making Teams with similar average Win Rates play each other in groups.
Basically this means, given enough participation and teams, a 50% team should not go up against a 65% team.
April 21st - Friday - Normalized Teams Test
April 24th - Monday - Group of Death Test
April 26th - Wednesday - Group of Death Test
I am looking for feedback on how these seeding options work and if we should use them going forward! Let me know what you think!
