  1. Add the dutch language

    Me and most of my friends use challonge to create tournament, but the most frequently asked question is: "what does this mean"? thats why i would like to help translate the site to dutch, but there's no option to do this.

    It's been long enough, my ranking site uses your API to pull stats and I have no way to get it to display MVCI...

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Begin participants in loser's bracket

    In tournaments in which participants advance from pools to a final bracket, such as top 64 or top 8, it would be very useful to be able to place a participant in loser's bracket. the way the bracket exists now, you have to do a bunch of weird false matches in round 1 in order to organize the loser's bracket correctly. i know that it is possible to run a tournament with multiple stages via challonge, but for tournaments which features thousands of entrants it would be helpful to just create a single top 64 or top 8 bracket with…

    For double elimination, you can now select our new “Split Participants” option to start half of the participants in the winners bracket, and the other half in the losers bracket. This option is available for both the group stage and final stage.

    Please contact us if you have more complex scenarios where the split isn’t 50/50, but we aimed to handle most use cases while making the option simple to use.

    Thanks for your patience everyone!

  8. API support to mark an match in progress

    We currently have support to submit match results but I would also like the ability to mark when a match is in progress.

    Match Update call does not recognize parameters that are not documented so updating "underway_at" member does not work.

  9. 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.

  10. Two stage tournament, round robin. Need all participants to advance from the group stage into the final stage

    All participants advance from group stage, not just 3 out of 4/ 4 out of 5 and so on...

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Fix Swiss system (bye issue)

    At this moment, if you run a Swiss style tournament with odd number of players, seeding is completely broken. The whole idea of Swiss system is to pair the players according to points. At this moment, system pairs is not using this rule, but probably games won - major flaw - it's not including points for "byes". Look at my tournament:

    http://fpo.challonge.com/NH1

    After first round I had 4 players with 2 pts - the system paired two of them with players that lost their games. After second round I have two platers with 4 pts and they are not paired…

  14. Create "Stations" where we can assign tournament matches to

    This would make it very easy to manage what match is going on where. Otherwise, they have to be self managed or not managed at all, which is a mess. It would be nice to have a section called "Stations", I can enter in my stations, and then for each match, I can mark what station it is on.

    Just released along with options for (1) automatically assigning open stations to matches and (2) requiring a station on a match before opening it.

    A separate feature we’ll be following up with is a dedicated station view for TVs & projectors that includes a queue for upcoming matches.

    Hope you enjoy!

  15. 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.

  16. 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,

  17. allow "text attachments" to games

    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!

  18. Taking back a removed player

    Once a player is removed from participants after the tournament started, the action cannot be taken back. Would it be possible to "undo" such action?

    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!

  20. 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.
