There is an entire breakdown of tie breakers I will post here - but what you don't see on the scoreboard is that time is kept - so that is always a factor after all the other applicable tiebreakers are applied. Number of teams will be a factor in that there may be brackets instead of a division - so winners could come out of their bracket each event (again depending on number of final teams)
Head-To-Head tiebreakers are applied by comparing the group of all teams with the same match score and number of wins in the following manner:
1. A team wins the head-to-head tiebreaker if the team:
a. Has, for any opponent played in the current round, won more matches in the current round against that opponent
than lost; and
b. Is, for any opponent not played in the current round, ranked ahead of that opponent in the remaining tiebreakers.
2. If no team wins the tiebreakers as in 1. a team loses the head-to-head tiebreaker if the team:
a. Has, for any opponent played in the current round, lost more matches in the current round against that opponent
than won; and
b. Is, for any opponent not played in the current round, ranked behind that opponent in the remaining tiebreakers.
3. If no team wins or loses the head-to-head tiebreakers as in 1. or 2. (for example, three teams have played each other and each won once), proceed to successive tiebreakers until a tiebreaker is reached where at least one team is not tied with the others:
a. If one team wins that tiebreaker, they are removed from the tied group and the remaining teams in the tie should have their tie broken starting with the very first tiebreaker, otherwise
b. Split the tied teams into two groups; the first group with all teams tied to win that tiebreaker, and the other group with the remaining teams, then break the ties for each group separately starting with the very first tiebreaker. All teams from the first group are ranked ahead of all teams from the second group.
4. Once a team has won or lost the tiebreaker, remove it from the group assigning it the highest rank for a win or the lowest rank for a loss, and then start back at step one with the remaining teams in the group, repeating until only one team remains.
46 Total of time remaining in each game won in RaceTo-2, and each match won in RaceTo-4/5/7. 47 Total of time elapsed in each game lost in RaceTo-2, and each match lost in RaceTo-4/5/7.
48 Total point points scored minus total point points given up in all matches in the current round.
