Received two medals for a single tournament


#1

Today I took part in this tournament https://online-go.com/tournament/44164

I beat gloriously a 25k player :wink: , lost my second game helplessly and achieved a third place.

After the tournament ended two medals showed up in my profile https://online-go.com/player/568324/

Bug or feature?


#2

Yah itโ€™s an annoying little bug.


#3

Forgot to say, that regarding the circumstances Iโ€™d prefer none to one. Not speaking of two.


#4

Iโ€™m quite sure you can prevent receiving any trophies by resigning from a tournament.


#5

I might try this another time. After I lost my second game I watched the final and bang, no possibility to resign because the tournament was finished.


#6

There are double trophies in every single elimination tournament. It happens if there are not enough tiebreakers to decide the ranks unambiguously.


#7

Now I see. Because there was no deciding game for the third place, I received both medals (like in someolympic competitions).


#8

I see. Good to know.


#9

Almost :wink: The system becomes confused and assigns the medals a second time to the same 3 people.
