Additional Customization on Ladder Bracket Format
Currently, the ladder bracket format eliminates the 4th place finisher. Would be nice to allow TDs to have the option of eliminating bottom 2 or 3 players to speed things along.
A new variation on the Ladder elimination bracket is available. In a normal ladder only the loser in each four-player game is elimination.
In a fast ladder both the third place and the fourth place finisher is eliminated and the next two players from the ladder will replace them. Once only four players remain the next game will be the final game (unlike a regular ladder where there will be a three-player and finally a two-player game).
To create a fast ladder create a “Ladder elimination bracket” tournament and switch the “ladder type” option to “fast ladder”.

Also needed as a part of this... the IFPA TGP guide shows:
4 player groups, 1 player eliminated per round until final 4 players remain (assumes 1 game for final 4)
Well Matchplay doesnt let me have the last four people as the final game.
it makes me go down to 3 people and then a final game for the final 2 people.
There should be a way to do ONE game for the final four, as this is what's shown in the IFPA TGP guide....
