How the BB2 Swiss System (Wissen Tournament) works?

-Hello dear friends of this awesome & bloody game. We are organizing a Swiss System tournament and would be great to know all the criteria are about scoring and matching generated by the system of the BB2 game (Wissen Tournament).

Thanks!

Hi, teams are paired depending on the closest score they have (+3 for a win, +1 for a draw and +0 for a loss). The first team in the leaderboard is paired with the closest score, then same for the second one, etc...

Thanks for the quick response @Netheos . This is our actual ranking after the first round:
0_1516201775412_2018-01-17 (5).png
0_1516201779730_2018-01-17 (6).png
0_1516201784297_2018-01-17 (7).png

And this is the pairing of the second round:
0_1516201961090_Ronda2-1.png
0_1516201968438_Ronda2-2.png

So according to your explanation (The first team in the leaderboard is paired with the closest ) Ever / Kanguros del Norte (who won his first round 4-0) should be with Xiete / Odiosos Once (who won 4-1) but they arent paired in this second round.

Each team has a score depending on its overall result (+3 for a win, +1 for a draw and +0 for a loss), it doesn't take TD into account.

It means that after your first round, all teams with 1-0-0 are at 3, all teams with 0-1-0 are at 1 and all teams with 0-0-1 are at 0. Then any team at 3 will be paired with the closest one. If there are several options, it is drafted randomly.

It explains your draft for round 2. You just began your competition, the results are more interesting after a few rounds.

We had doubts about this swiss system that differs a little from those of tabletop board game. Thanks @Netheos for all the information and explanation!

Hi @Netheos thanks for all the info you give us! Only a doubt about the draft of the actual round, if u see the last team, gobblins, are paired on the round 2 with the chaos dwarfs that are on 15th position, which actually they are 0-1-0 not the same points than the gobbos that are 0-0-1, why is this possible?.

By the way which are the tiebreakers of the swiss system? Points > TD Scored ? something else?

Cheers!

After the first round, you have 13 teams with 1-0-0 (= a score of 3), 6 with 0-1-0 (= a score of 1) and 13 with 0-0-1 (= a score of 0).

The first 12 teams with 1-0-0 have been paired together randomly, leaving a 1-0-0 alone, forced to be paired with a 0-1-0.
Then 4 teams with 0-1-0 have been paired together, leaving a 0-1-0 alone, forced to be paired with a 0-0-1 (picked randomly). That's your Chaos Dwarf (0-1-0) and your goblin (0-0-1).

By the way which are the tiebreakers of the swiss system? Points > TD Scored ? something else?

Tie breaker in a Wissen leaderboard is:
TD difference > Number of TD > Random

@netheos Awesome! thanks for all the info, didnt see that there were only 13 100 and 13 001 sorry, but with that, now we know better how the "random generator" of the swiss system works, thank for all

Cheers!
