  3. Winner stays on functionality

I'm not sure if this is a feature that's already been requested but it would be cool to have a winner stays format. . so the winner continues to play and plays the first player in the queue?

Cheers!

Oh, that is a pretty cool idea!
So the winner keeps playing, until somebody else in the queue beats them; would be a pretty chill feature.

Sounds really fun, but there might be a lot of wait times.

This is available on some other servers (FICS) as "King of the Hill." Would probably need a different name here if the idea was popular. The format was never popular on FICS, that's for sure.

Yup, this sounds like a fun sort of arena to play in.
