i just played a double elimination tournament. I won every game until the
final round. Losing the final round, I still only had one loss, while the
guy that beat me had one loss as well.
.
This should be changed so that if the loser of the final round still only
has one loss, a rematch ensues since both players now have one loss.
Otherwise, it is not really a double-elimination tourney, is it? It's
fair to the guy that goes undefeated into the final round and loses.


This was reported nearly a year ago, which was moved from the Warfish Wiki Message Board:

I ran a tournament, and it finished with the winner of the loser bracket
beating the winner of the winners bracket.... The tournament says it is
finished, but does not declare a winner. I would think that the winner
of the loser bracket would then need to play again to determine the champion,
since the person who lost only has 1 loss...Hopefully this makes sense.
