New tournament format: Ladder tournaments
The tournament format used in the PAPA Circuit final:
"At the start of the third round, the remaining 10 players will be placed in a ladder-style bracket based on their original seeds. The bottom 4 players will compete in a single game, with the lowest scoring player being removed from the contest and replaced by the next highest seed. When only 2 players remain, they will compete in a best two-games-out-of-three series to determine the Circuit Champion and decide who takes home the PAPA Circuit Belt!"
Ladder Bracket have been added as a new tournament format in Match Play. More details here: http://tiltforums.com/t/match-play-events-open-thread/958/665

this is good but matchplay doesnt line up with the IFPA on this.
For example, from the TGP guide:
"4 player groups, 1 player eliminated per round until final 4 players remain (assumes 1 game for final 4)"
Matchplay doesnt give a way to end the ladder tournament after ONE game is played by the final 4.
Can we get that added to make this line up with the IFPA?
