A format which requires 14 rounds but only 1 tiebreaker (as opposed to 13 rounds and two tiebreakers, as the current format does), without expanding the field, is: 4x9 crossover brackets (so, each team in pool A plays each team in pool B and none from their own; likewise for pools C and D) Split to...
