For the first round, it's based on the order in which you sign up. The first seven to sign up make up the first group, the next seven make up the second, and so on. If there are any extras at the cutoff to start the tournament, not enough to make their own group of seven, they will be shuffled into existing groups. No one will get left out.
After that, builders are sorted into their groups based on their accumulated scores. If there are ten groups, the top ten scorers each go into one. The 11th place scorer goes into Group A with the 1st place scorer, 12th place goes into Group B with the 2nd place, and so on. If two or more players have identical accumulated scores, who goes in which group will be determined by the whim of our all-knowing and all-powerful admins. Permalink
