    • Chrome/Desktop notifications

      Just like with Facebook, Twitter and various other sites, how about having Chrome or Desktop notifications for next matchups and tourney starts/ends in addition to the emails? It would be a lot more convenient to the participants that might be multitasking or doing something else during the times they would need to be participating

      • Allow Organizers to set the value for losses as well as Draw/Win.

        There are some newer games that have values associated with losses.

        Win: 3
        Draw: 0
        Loss: 1

        Can you allow Challonge to manipulate loss points?

        • Three-Way Finale!

          Hello. I've used Challonge for the past two years and was hoping to use it again in 2018.

          But this year, I am running a tournament with 48 competitors, five rounds total. So the first round consists of 24 one-on-one matches, the winners move on to round 2, which consists of 12 matches. Then six, then three, and finally we end up with three competitors for the final round in a three-way finale.

          Unfortunately, right now, Challonge does not support that format. =( I would love to see that option made available. Preferably by April 1. Haha.

          • Allow 4 person single elimination matches - Mario Mart

            I am about to run a large mario kart tournament and love this site. However, i need to run 4 person matches where the top 2 advance. Each bracket besides swiss groups only allows for heads up to move on. Were talking mario kart

                • Doubles Tennis Bracket

                  Hi, it would be great if your app could allow/configure a bracket for Doubles Tennis (two player teams).

                  If this is already a feature, I'm not sure how to set it up. Either way, it would be an awesome feature.

                  • Challonge not working

                    I'm not sure where to put this but im having an odd problem, I joined challonge recently to be made an admin on a tournament we are having, and when I signed up everything worked fine, it listed the tourn i was admin of under "Your Tournaments" and everything.
                    But now I can't do anything at all on the website. The tournament isn't listed on my page like it was, (its still up) I can't click on my profile name in the top right or that other weird looking button, and I can't load the bracket at all, it refuses…

                    • Disable automatic advance winner in elimination brackets

                      It'd be nice if entering a score didn't automatically advance a team to the next round so that if you're tracking a real life event that is a series of 5 or 7 that takes place over multiple days that you could enter the score at the end of each day without having it close the match or advance the team on to the next round.

                        • Match Comms to settle the match terms between teams (day, time and server)

                          Hello, I am managing Americas Army Games for over 10 years, and we always required a Match Comms feature, were the teams are able to discuss via posts, the terms for their matches, like for exemple, the day, the time, the server, etc, etc. I would like to suggest that this feature be added in the Challonge Tournaments Match Details, like the attachements, the time and location and the report score. This way, Challonge avoid the need of a paralel forum for that. ESL, TWL and other Gaming Communities use this features aswell.

                          • Option to auto-accept invitation

                            Option to auto-accept invitation

                            Option to auto-accept invitation
                            Would be nice to have in user settings option to auto-accept all games invitations (it would suffice to auto accept them within the organization one belongs to). We often create tournaments with users we know will participate but they don't have time to log in and accept the invitation. It is time consuming and useless to accept it by everyone each time. Unless they accept it, there is "Invitation pending" displayed and no avatar available on tournament ladder.

                            • Make text Description size limit larger

                              The attachments allow for files, links, and text. The text is the topic I want to cover. Isn’t it reasonable to want to give a description of each competitor in the competition for each matchup? The text only allows a few words. If I write a 100 word synopsis of the matchup, the page says “Sorry Something Went Wrong”. What’s the point of having a text description attached to first round matchups if they can only be a few words long???

                                      In Chess, especially in the scholastic USCF tournaments, there is a system for playing Swiss tournaments with teams. Swiss tournaments are widely understood but there is a system they use to make teams work.

                                      Teams are created and can be edited with adding or removing players anytime. Whenever someone registers for a tournament, they register their teamname along with their own name. This allows team statistics to be calculated. On Challonge, the "Team" option is just the same as playing as an individual player with a team name. There is really no way of playing swiss tournaments, for chess or…

                                      • Make an elimination series tournament

                                        Starting with a large number of players, e.g. 40, and eliminate the weakest half each round, until a good amount is available for the final. This could be good for target competitions, where players have to reach a set number of points to advance.

                                        • Season of tournametns scores

                                          Season of tournametns scores
                                          Would be nice to have option to sum up scores from multiple tournaments, e.g. during whole season, and display season summary table. We play tournaments on weekly basis and have table with medals and points. If your page provided such functionality it would be really great.
                                          Besides that the page is great as is :)
