Will there ever be any non-eliminating tournament format that features a fixed number of rounds of competition? The winner of the tournament is the competitor with the highest aggregate points earned in all rounds.
Some ideas perhaps over here? --> www.lichess4545.com/ It seems to schedule Blitz and Rapid Swiss-tournament style competitions as well as a competition where you play in teams.
@YoloSwag2004 I wasn't on lichess back then, but I have heard rumors they used to have them, but started to die off. Also, the reasoning they haven't added them back is because with the arena format it is easier for people to join and withdraw without screwing the pairings as it would if it were a swiss tournament.
#3 is completely right. Swiss tournament is hard to pull off online and having trouble ridden tourneys just discourages people.
