With lives ranking play you can run a 1-life eliminatory event and rank the field at the same time. Losers are eliminated from the main event but play on to decide the minor placings.
Draws are not allowed in this variation of lives play.
In Lives policy set the rankingPlayRoundOf option to the roundOf from which ranking play applies. For example if you want a game to decide third and fourth in addition to the final specify
"rankingPlayRoundOf":4. Ranking play will begin when the event reduces to the final section with 4 survivors.
Below we have specified the policy setting
"rankingPlayRoundOf":16 and have advanced the section as normal.
The winners are playing the quarter-finals while the losers can now finish no higher than 9th.
The losing quarter-finalists can finish no higher that 5th.
Don't try to advance the section past the final!
The final positions are adjusted manually as necessary using Float winner on the menu, or by appending the shortcode
)fw to the player's name. In this instance only player Phil Hartley needed to be floated up from 10th to 9th place.
