This application allows user to host a Swiss-style tournament, which is the type of tournament where equally-skilled players face off.
This application will
- manage several tournaments
- automatically generate pairings and seat assignments
- keep track of tournament records
- break ties intelligently
- handle byes and drops
- match users whose records are similar
- attempt to avoid rematches
- only allow one bye per tournament
The tournament can have any number of players and any number of rounds up to a complete round-robin tournament.
This application is useful for hosting Magic: The Gathering tournaments, scrabble, chess, or any tournament that requires a Swiss-style pairing. The user interface is designed to be very intuitive, and tournaments can span several days as they are stored to permanent memory on the phone.
This is the first upload; though I've had a few beta testers, I'm sure there is room for improvement. Please do let me know what features you need and if you've discovered any oddities.
