Round-robin tournament

A round-robin tournament is a type of armored combat or rapier combat tournament in which each participant fights every other participant an equal number of times. In a pure round-robin schedule, each participant fights every other participant once and the person with the most victories is declared the winner.

If each participant fights all others more than once, this is frequently called a double round-robin. Winners are determined by the total number of victories over the course of all rounds of combat, with the victors often advancing into the next round of round-robin fights until only two or few fighters remain.

Round-robin tournaments are popular because of the sheer number of fights that occur during the tournament.
