    Hi, I am in the "2014 January Mini Duel II 1750-1800" tournament and would like to see if a feature request could be implemented.

    I understand that player distribution is automated when a new round starts, and there are a lot of tournaments!

    However it is possible, as in the tournament above, that a player could be paired with an inactive user, and 3 active players could be grouped together.

    It would make more sense if the inactive player could be added to a pair instead of a single player, effectively leaving 2 active pairs

    To achieve this, either the administrator would need to approve each new round and move players accordingly, or code would need be written to add the least active player to the group with the most players

    Not a major thing but it would make the rounds fairer
    thanks

    Suggest a good algorithm for that...I don't think it is feasible.

    The tournament in question si Tournament 18902 and it has to be said, the OP is facing the inactive player.

    Send him a reminder and see if he resurfaces.
