A round robin bracket is one where each participant plays all the other participants in turn.

For example, if you have a Round Robin bracket with 4 teams - Team A, Team B, Team C and Team D. Here are the matches that would get generated:

Round 1
Team A vs Team B
Team C vs Team D

Round 2
Team A vs Team C
Team B vs Team D

Round 3
Team A vs Team D
Team B vs Team C


Protip: If you have an odd number of teams, one team get a bye match every round. Or to think about it another way, every team will get a bye match.

What are Round Robin groups?

Groups is a feature on Battlefy to separate your teams or players into smaller batches for the Round Robin format. Because every team has to play each other once in a Round Robin bracket, the number of matches can grow really quickly!

For example:

  • With 4 participants, your bracket will have 6 matches to play.
  • With 10 participants, your bracket will have 45 matches to play.
  • With 20 participants, your bracket will have 190 matches to play.
  • With 50 participants, your bracket will have 1225 matches to play!

You can easily use Round Robin Groups to separate your teams or players and make the brackets more manageable.

For example:

  • You can split up your 50 participants into 10 groups. Each group will have 5 players and 10 matches. So, your bracket will only have a total of 100 matches to play!
