Consider home and away fixtures format for round robin played on league basis
If you interpret a round robin as a league and your team/players are to play each other twice then the fixtures should reflect this with competitors playing alternate home and away games.The present format's second set of fixtures is merely a repetiton of the first.
An 8 team season would appear thus:
1v2 6v4 7v3 8v5
2v8 3v1 4v7 5v6
1v4 2v3 7v5 8v6
3v8 4v2 5v1 6v7
1v6 2v5 3v4 8v7
4v8 5v3 6v2 7v1
1v8 2v7 3v6 4v5
then reversing the fixtures for the second half of the season:
2v1 3v7 4v6 5v8
1v3 6v5 7v4 8v2
3v2 4v1 5v7 6v8
1v5 2v4 7v6 8v3
4v3 5v2 6v1 7v8
1v7 2v6 3v5 8v4
5v4 6v3 7v2 8v1
If, of course, one sees it simply as a round robin competition staged at a neutral venue then the way the fixtures appear is not too significant.
This is just an idea. Whether worth considering or indeed feasible, I will let the administrators decide.
We’ve finished implementing this feature. All participants should now get a fair number of home and away games in round robin tournaments. Please test and let us know if there is anything that doesn’t look right to you! Thanks.
My idea has been only partly implemented because I was after a more ordered method of setting home and away fixtures as shown in my example. For an 8 team competition, team 1 should play alternate home and away games against teams 2,3 ,4,5,6,7 and 8 in that order. The other games are set around this as per my example. Similarly, in a 9 team league, team 1 would play 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9 in that order
This has now been completed. Thanks for your support!
This is a fondamental feature..and I hope that the admin will realize
