    • Adding Steel Division: Normandy 44 as a game

      Hey I already created 3 Tournaments for Steel Division: Normandy 44 on challonge and the game will leave Beta next week, so I would like to see it becoming a selectable game. I will not be the last one to create a Steel Division so it would be really helpfull to be able to search for tournaments of this game in the future.

      • Front End UI Match Identifier does not match API Match Identifier

        Recently Challonge updated their front end UI and with the bracket matches have been updated to be identified by a number instead of a letter. However the API still returns matches back with the identifier labeled as a letter.

        This makes it impossible to identify what match is where in the bracket. And has brought my development to a standstill.

          I just pushed out an update for this. New match records will have a “suggested_play_order” integer value that matches the Challonge front end. I’ll make a note to backfill old match records as well, but it might be a week or so.

        • I am extremely impressed

          With all the Updates, Dashboard and all the Many Hours put in to make this So Professor

          • Enter a score without selecting winner "Live Score"

            Enter the score without selecting a winner, so therefore it would be a live score.
            For example if the winner is first to 5, I would like the ability to be able to show an update when thee game is 3-2

              Thanks for the suggestion – this is now supported! When scores are reported without a winner selected, you’ll still need to OK the alert message that pops up, but then the scores will show up on the bracket for everyone to see.

                This is already possible, but we may not have announced it a while back.

                We have some improvements to make when seeding the 2nd stage, but for now, you can manually adjust positions in the final bracket as needed.

              • All teams advance in the Round Robin Group Stage.

                Is it possible to have the option of all teams advancing from the Round Robin in the Group Stage to the Final Stage? In the tourney I am organizing the results of the Round Robin Group Stage will determine your position in the Final Stage. Teams are only eliminated in the knockout stage. There are not a lot of teams in the tourney so everyone would like to have a shot at the knockout stage.

                  This just shipped. Please be aware that if your final stage has byes, you’ll likely need to rearrange final stage pairings to your liking. We try to prevent players in groups from rematching in the final stage, but this currently breaks down when byes are involved.

                • Looser should not be able to win in double elimination

                  I need a double elimination tournament where a player that has lost a match not is able to get to the final. I.e. if I have a double tournament with 8 players, the second round are semi finals and match G is the final. Loosers go to the second bracket like before, but loosers round 3 is the match for 3rd and last in the tournament.

                  • Show links to Sign Up during check-in periods

                    Really REALLY love the new check-in feature. Previously I had been trying to manage a similar style of check-ins with 100+ people for online tournaments, and this makes everything a BREEZE now.

                    The only issue is that currently, during the check-in period, you're no longer able to sign up for the tournament from the front page of the bracket. I have to go into my settings, find the signup sheet, and have them sign up from that page.

                    I generally post the bracket link for signups because they're smaller, and include rules descriptions etc.

                      • Embedding of tournament standings

                        Hi All,

                        First of all, I love the fact that tournament brackets embedable in external sites.

                        However my question is: is it possible to embed only the standings of a tournament. I'm aware that you can add them to the bottom of an embedded bracket. But it would be great if I could embed them separately as well.

                        Cheers,

                          The tournament embed now supports a standings tab for all tournament types. The “show_standings=1” option enables it, and if you want it to be the starting tab, use “tab=standings”

                        • Double Round Robin.

                          Simple really, why is there no double round robin option? I found another website that has double round robin, but is not like Challonge, and i would rather stay on Challonge, I just like the way it is run, and can be run. The idea is so participants play each other at least twice, instead of once. It would be more interesting for madden brackets.

                              Because instead of attaching replay files to a match, we could just click on a link to http://ggtracker.com where we can see analysis and download the replays ourselves if we wanted to.

                              I really love Challonge.com by the way! Keep up the good work guys!

                                  Removed participants can now be reactivated. This won’t undo the forfeiting of the participant’s matches, but that can be done separately from the bracket view.

                                  Thanks for the suggestion!

                                • Add Completed Tournaments to Organization

                                  I think organizations would benefit greatly if organizers were given the opportunity to connect completed, previously unconnected tournaments to their organization. As of right now, if an organizer starts a tournament separate from an organization, there is no way to fix this at any point after the creation of the event.

                                  I have hosted multiple tournaments in somewhat of a "series," and for organizational purposes, it would be convenient to have them all grouped in the same organization. The first two of these tournaments are separated because I was not aware of the organization feature at the time (it may…

                                    Hello,

                                    This is already possible. A user who organized a tournament as an individual can change its host to an organization they belong to (from a tournament’s settings page). Note – this will change the tournament’s URL to include the org’s subdomain.

                                    Let us know if we’re missing something or if you have any other questions. Thanks!

                                    It would be sweet if brackets could be exported to JSON. It would provide tournament organizers a quick and convenient way to submit a completed bracket to an automated system for things such as data-mining, season-long record keeping/scoring, etc.

                                    • Allow team tournaments

                                      We use Challonge several times a year for several tournaments during our regional LAN parties. Not having a way for us to add teams (rather than individuals) to a tournament can be troublesome for us.

                                      Current Process:
                                      -- Post sign up link
                                      -- Ask everyone to form their teams, and sign up with a single team name, and a single email notification

                                      Better Process:
                                      -- Post sign up link
                                      -- Allow people to sign up and either (a) create a new team, or (b) join an existing team
                                      -- If joining an existing team, the team captain will receive an…

                                        Marking this completed, but we’ll continue to make improvements to this feature. In particular, inviting a team member without a Challonge account by email and viewing team members on hover in the bracket.

                                      • Make Fantasy Brackets

                                        I would like to see people make their own predictions on an entire bracket, not jut vote for the one match at a time, and give points based on each correct selection. Person with most picks correct wins!
