Race or Versus mode?
In office sport tournaments there is a game type called Race. This game mode is meant to keep track of personal/individual achievements. For example: setting a record in the longest hula-hoop session. Or the longest distance run in by a participant this month. Most of all, race measures and records your attempts, you can give the type of measurement: points (socre), time, length etc. The player who has the best score will win the challenge.
There are sports or team building events, when you are compared only to your opponent. For this we have Versus mode.
First of all, when creating versus mode, you can select among multiple game modes. Each setups are suitable for different purposes:
|Knockout||All play all||Groups + Playoff|
|Single elimination||Round robin||Playoff|
|Shortest time needed – only winners play multiple times||Longest game mode – Everybody plays with everybody||Hybrid mode – round matches followed by a single elimination|
After selecting the appropriate game type, all you need to do is fill out the basic informations about the game you are about to organise. Ultimately, you can start the challenge. Have fun and enjoy!
