I really do appreciate how many more higher point games are played than lower points, it keeps me going through all of these decisions knowing that people still are playing an awful lot of games. Anyway I tried to drop people who aren't playing out, probably missed more than a few.

Btw this is the third time in a row I'm floating up to play on someone with more points than me, and thus at least second time in a row the Swiss Pairings have been done illegally.
Maybe there was a mistake by the admin because it says you’re on 5.5 but you won with 4 last round. That would explain things I think.

Uhhh i have 4.5 points i lost my last game again Mtg xerxes Mz:smogthink:
Yeah this is a new one I think I just completely spaced out and wrote the wrong pairings. Instead of you vs MTG again and rey vs soTsoT we have:
Mighty-Cannon (4.5) vs soTsoT (5)
reyscarface (5) vs MTG Xerxes (5.5)
Btw this is the third time in a row I'm floating up to play on someone with more points than me, and thus at least second time in a row the Swiss Pairings have been done illegally.
You were not floated last round. To my understanding you can float people non-consecutively which is why I didn't manually repair after seeing you getting floated again. Why the bracket really likes floating you I have honestly no idea, perhaps that's a weird quirk of Challonge. If you insist and they haven't played yet I could still swap you with Cdumas although that appears to be the only other configuration of you 6 that wouldn't give anyone a rematch. I just don't think this is illegal.

So if I'm reading this right, lets just theorycraft that Darkfire wins, Quasar/Weeping is decisive, and I win; that would leave a 7 pt and two 6.5 points left for the final round. If the two 6.5's win AGAIN, would there be a tiebreak round? Otherwise the 6.5 that got paired down has 0% chance to be #1. Actually even if Darkfire draws, there could then be three 6.5s with one round to play.

I think Gimmy and I should probably have played instead of both pairing down, but he's already played it seems based on the bold name for Hyper. I'm fully aware things never go smoothly in large tournaments but I wanted to raise awareness early so you get a chance to think about things. And it's totally possible the points lay out conveniently and none of this matters too. Obviously if Darkfire wins out then he's the Champ.

On second look: Proofreading is good.... If Ashwins72 wins and I win, there would still be three 6.5s. So really we need Darkfire to run the table like a boss otherwise there's potential complications! lol

A tiebreaker round has always been a strong possibility. And you already played Gimmy so you couldn't have played them again.
e: nvm you're right, not entirely sure what floating 2 people there is meant to avoid then

On pairings: I was paired down more than once and always thought it was due to my first win being an activity win (actually, rescheduled last-minute, but not played, against Mighty-Cannon who gained 0.5 points). So maybe the algorithm didn't "fully trust" that point? Idk this is what I thought
