Eliminate ties (up to 16th place) in both single and double elimination tournaments

Using Consolation Matches

Consolation Matches allows placements from 1st through 16th to be clearly defined. The host has the option of selecting how many placements should be defined using consolation matches from 3rd through 16th. If the host selected 16, then participants will continue to play in consolation matches until the ranks of 1 through 16 can only be populated by a single participant.

Consolation Matches are only available for single and double elimination bracket formats.

Consolation Matches must be enabled prior to the start of the tournament. The setting to enable can be found in the "Settings" of the tournament.

Next, you must select to how many places consolation matches should be enabled for. If, for example, you only wanted to have a 3rd place match in single elimination, you'd select '3'.

From here, finish your tournament settings and click save.

Here is what a 22 participant, single elimination tournament with consolation matches to 16th place would look like:
