Round Robin standings order...
When two teams have the same points other voices should be considered (score difference, games played...) rhis doesn't seem to happen now...
We have just published the option to change manually the order of teams with the same points. We know it’s a temporary solution and the automatic score difference will be implemented soon. However, now you have the possibility to publish correct standings.
I understand that Konkuri supports a "huge list of sports" but surely you can adapt different ranking systems to different sports, as chosen when creating leagues. Also, I assume almost all sports would benefit from this feature, so if it is so important to not have this feature for some sports, please enlighten me when this would ever be the case. This is just a blatant case of lazy developers

Last weekend we had a tournament. Three teams had the same number of points. Everything was happening too fast, so I relied on Konkuri to determine who was going to qualify to the Final Stage and who wouldn't. That was a big mistake. I didn't notice until today that Konkuri does not consider goal differential. So a team was erroneously eliminated simply because it was the last one to be entered in the list of competitors. I learned my lesson.

Last weekend was Jan 24, 2015. Over four years later.
I was super excited about using Konkuri, but this left a very, very, sour taste in my mouth. :/

Hi Chris, the manual option will always be available. As Konkuri support a huge list of sports, we will never be able to know the secondary ranking parameters of every organizer.

Whatever you end up doing, leave the option to manually order the teams in the event that your choices do not include the same logic options as the tournament organizer. For example, we don't use +/-, but rather "goals for/(goals for plus goals against)".
Try to create a menu when we can change the standings rule like:
2. Number of Wins
3. Goal Scored
4. Direct Comparision
5. Fewest Games Played
We would can record this rules and change when we can...
Try this and thanks for this awesome website!
Looks like Konkuri currently uses Runs For (RF) to determine seeding order. Here is an example of one Tournament Director's rules for Tie Breaker in Pool Play:
Pool Play Tiebreakers:
1. Win-Loss Record
2. Head to Head
3. Fewest Runs Allowed
4. Highest Run Differential (Runs scored minus runs allowed)
(Max. +/-8 runs per game)
5. Coin Flip
So, looks like you will need to allow Tournament Admins to choose from a list of rules in order of precedence. Just an "idea"!
