The use of a double elimination bracket is generally applied as opposed to leagues. While in the league, the use of a round robin schedule will be more suitable to be applied because the team can continue to play matches even though they have suffered several defeats.
What Is Double Elimination Bracket For 16 Teams?
It is a format for draw tournaments involving 16 players/teams where a match participant will be expelled from the division if they lose twice. Participants may still come out as champions, even though they have lost only once.
The double elimination bracket implements the splitting of the bracket into two, consisting of a winner bracket and a looser bracket. To determine the first place winner, a system is used to bring together the winner of the winning bracket against the winner of the looser bracket.
Advantages And Disadvantages of Double Elimination Bracket
The determination of the third and fourth ranks can be done without having to go through additional playoff matches.
Even though in the early stages a team played a bad match and ended in defeat, this team still has a chance to become champion.
With the same number of players, when applying the double elimination bracket a team must play more games if compared to the single elimination format.
