Allow players to start the tournament from the second phase
In a multi-stage tournament, it should be necessary for some players to start playing in the second stage; let's say that the 2014 Championship ended with Player 1, 2, 3 and 4 at top 4 places.
The 2015 Championship is a two stages tournament:
-Round robin between 24 players divided in 6 groups
-Top 2 players of each group are promoted to second stage
-Promoted players are 12, 4 Players were qualified because of 2014 results (player 1 2 3 4), total of 16 players
-Direct/Double Elimination between 16 Players
It's a cool idea though at the moment It can be done by creating 2 different tournaments...

this also what i a after saves having to create a round robin tournament then having to create a second 2 stage tournament round robin followed by knockout.
