  1. Hide completed rounds

    As the bracket progresses, there are less matches each round. This leaves vertical space between each match. For example, in [winners] round 3, the vertical space between each match is three times the height of each match.
    In tournaments I am involved with, the bracket is displayed on a projector. Due to this vertical space, the bracket has to be shrunk so that all the matches can fit on the projector screen. During early rounds, this is of little importance, but as the tournament progresses, it is important that the matches can be easily seen. Hiding completed rounds would allow…

    • Support marking a match as "On Stream" and retrieving via a browser object in OBS.

      Allow the TO to mark a match as "On Stream."

      Create a page that displays these players and allow the TO to click SWITCH to change sides.

      Using a browser object, connect to Challonge to retrieve these player names so they can be displayed directly in OBS.

      Customization of text can be done through custom CSS within the application.

      • Avoid Consecutive Games for Player in Round Robin

        If a player is in the last match of a round, they should not be in the first match of the next round, so that they get a break like all other players.

        An algorithm for six or more players: If both players from the last match of the last round are in the first and second matches of the next round, swap matches one and three of the round. Otherwise, if either player is in the first matches, swap matches one and two.

        For five players, play the matches in the order AB CD - AE BC - DE…

          • Please add Ladders

            Hi,

            I created this picture to showcase how challonge could offer two separate ways to compete
            http://i.imgur.com/biOlD7Q.jpg
            ladders are great for the long run/ for long seasons. where as brackets are typically for short tournaments.

            examples of ladders:

            http://au.cybergamer.com/pc/ow/ladder/rankings/
            https://www.globaltennisnetwork.com/tennis-ladders/learn-more
            gamebattles.com also has ladders.

            I would use gamebattles if they cater more lesser known games.
            Have a petition system, if 200 registered players sign a petition you can add a ladder for their game.

            to save on hosting forums, have each ladder host their forum externally and just approve them for each ladder.

            maybe team up with clansweb.com to helps…

            • [BUG] overflow: hidden property in the bracket (group-stage) makes scores not editable

              If you have a lot of games in a group stage phase, the most-right group of games after partially entering scores becomes not editable, since you can't click in the edit scores button (submit scores in this case) because of the overflow-hidden on one of the parent's div.

              Literally unplayable.

              • Highlight new matches when result entered

                When a result is entered on the "report scores" page, it would be useful if the new matches involving a player in the old match were highlighted. This would make it easier to tell the player that just reported their match what their next match will be.

                • Number of groups

                  For the normal second stage of the tournament count of groups must be a number which equals to 2 powered by some natural number. Also difference between each group number of participants must be not more then one, because it often happens that one of the groups is only 1 or 2 participants, and that is the problem.

                  • Collapse completed pools

                    When a pool is completed in a two stage tournament, could a "Summary" option be added next to "Standings" and "Matches" that, on a single row, shows the players set to advance from that pool (e.g. http://i.imgur.com/mUlPc46.png). This would make it easier to view all the uncompleted pools without having to constantly scroll.

                    • Examples in Documentation

                      I really think there should be examples for each section in the API documentation. With JSON and XML formatting.

                      I am currently having issues with bulk_add.json and no matter what I try it doesn't work.

                      I believe this is also true for others, since I cannot find any good examples of how to use bulk_add, or anything else really. (However I figured out everything else)

                        • Add a game name

                          If your game wasn't up on Challonge, you would have to select an unspecified game, which meant you had to put the game name in your titles, and I like to have creative names, so it kinda got annoying

                          I'd be happy if your game wasn't up there, you could have a button that said "add a new game" or "create a name".

                          I'd be really happy if this idea got put on Challonge :). Please vote if you think this is good (enough)

                                We have 6 team Canasta card tournaments with 3 players on each team, 18 total players. The tournament is spread over 3 tables and in each round, two teams compete At the end of each round, the players change partners so they are playing with different team mates on each round. The tournament needs to be structured so all 18 participants play with and against all of the other players. One of the players is handicapped and needs to remain seated at the same table, probably should be player number 1. I estimate we need about 6 rounds to complete…

                                  I use challenge to post the running scores on the web of the tournaments that I currently run. Therefore, the bracket that I use is not one from challonge, but rather a bracket that the tournament committee decides on. I cannot match the bracket on challonge because some of the matches are unfair in a losers bracket. With this being said, I cannot use challonge to post scores of games at all unless there is a customize bracket option.

                                  For example, the bracket that the tournament committee decided on has the loser of a game going to a particular location…

                                      • Tabs

                                        Please add tabs with different weights and years for one tournament and option to see all participants (and delete individually each from this list (if somebody is absent) and automatically delete him from all tournament brackets/categories) and option to sort them by Male/Female, Date of birth and Age, weight, sports club. We were creating tournament brackets and it was pain to look for somebody when you have 30 different categories. And please create longer bars for names.

                                        • Round Robin Return Matches

                                          Like in the Bundesliga the Teams Play 17 Matches and Return than 17 Matches is this Option already viable?
