From my experience with these formats , the Swiss means that after the first round , the top 2 play each othe then the next 2 ranked players , etc; changing next round so that the top players are almost always playing against top players .

Round Robin = everybody plays everybody at least once or as close to once depending on how many players and how many games can be fitted into the tourney . :poke:

Swiss refers to you playing against opponents with the same win to you playing against opponents with the same win/loss ratio as you. Round robin means you play a set number of rounds, rather than be eliminated when you lose. The two can be combined.

I agree, Round Robin does not always have to mean playing everyone, it is often simply playing a set number of games each of them against a different opponent. And then the people with the best win loss records advance to a quarter-finals or semi-finals, or depending upon how many people are involved directly to the finals.
