This question is not about chess per se, but I am looking for a software that could generate random matchups through a list of 200ish options/people, then I could choose the winner and it would rank the outcomes with Elo rating (or something similar, that would also work). I'm currently using EloRater, but I have to manually generate random numbers from an external source to then create the matchups, scroll down through the list, find them, choose the winner, etc. I am doing simulations and I need to do many, many matchups from a list, so something that could be user-friendly and could speed up the process would greatly help.

I think such software probably exists for chess, so I thought I could ask you guys if you know anything that could help me.

    FIDE approved pairing systems have to be reproducible (for the obvious reason of wanting to prevent cheating in the pairings, particularly with respect to title norms). Hence there is no incentive to produce such software. – Brian Towers Jun 13 '18 at 6:12
