Documented in randomtourney

#' Generates a randomized tournament with random outcomes
#'
#' @param n Number of individuals in tournament
#' @param matchups Number of times individuals compete in tournament. Can
#' be a numeric input, or, if \strong{\code{matchups}="random"} interactions
#' are random
#' @param pties Probability of each individual matchup ending in a tie.
#' Default is 0, i.e. no ties.  Needs to be a number between 0 and 1.
#' @param ints The number of interactions in the tournament if matchups
#' are set to random.
#' @param type Whether to return results as W/L characters or 1/2 numbers.
#' \strong{\code{type}="char"} is the default, \strong{\code{type}="nums"}
#'  returns 1/2 numbers referring to winner as id1 or id2
#' @return A competition results dataframe
#' @examples
#' randomtourney(20,2) #20 individuals interact twice with each other
#' randomtourney(5,6) #5 individuals interact six times with each other
#' randomtourney(8) #8 individuals interact twice with each other
#' @section Further details:
#' Specify number of individuals to compete in a tournament and
#' the number of times they compete with each other.  Winners
#' and losers are determined at random. The resulting dataframe
#' will have variables: \code{id1}, \code{id2}, \code{result}.
#' Result refers to the outcome from \code{id1}'s perspective, i.e. a "W"
#' refers to \code{id1} beating \code{id2}, and a "L" refers to
#' \code{id2} beating \code{id1}. Individuals are referred to by a
#' random assignment of two conjoined letters.
#' @importFrom utils "combn"
#' @export
