The Delta Duel 64 II just started and I was wondering how the pairings were selected. It looks as though the top half of the players (ratings wise) get matched against players from the lower half. Does this happen in all the rounds? And what's the rationale for not having random match ups? (I was hoping a few top players would draw each other!)
Any help appreciated,

Well, you can find the pairing system for each tourny on the tournament list. Original means the top seed plays the bottom seed, and the second seed plays the second to last seed, ect, ect. Random, that would just be random pairings.

If you have ever played otb? you will know that they usually in the first round place your top seed against the top seed of the lower rated group, so you have two groups, for example, 1600+ and 1600-. therefore your top player plays the top of the 1600- group? why? because it sets the second round up so that there are stronger players matched. So ...[text shortened]... up for the lower player to win, but the already amazing player lol.???? I hope this makes sense.
