  1. An API to add players, create tournaments, update results without using the website.

    I'd be a great if I could interface with Challonge from something other than the site. In particular, I want to make a bot for an IRC channel that handles tournaments that just uses an API to send Challonge info (and then I'd link the generated bracket).

    • Ability to remove the winner from a match after it has been entered.

      Have updated scores in real time, but selected a winner of the match by accident. Cannot remove the winner so that the bracket reverts as if the match hadn't finished.

      • Guest book

        A way for users in a tournament to chat with each other.
        Just a simple message board/guest book in public for tracking each other for losses or even planning of meetings.

        Personally we use facebook for this, but it would be great with a function like that on the site as well!

            • Markup in tournament descriptions

              Allow links, headers, basic styling, etc. in tournament descriptions so rules are easier to read.

              • Make Swiss points system available for Round Robin tournament

                RR really misses option to set a point system, like 3 pts for a win, 1 pts for a tie (and sorting table by this parameter, of course). Now the only way to make this is submit every win as 3-0 (or [whatever win cost is] - 0) and every tie as 1-1 + sorting by points, but it's kinda weird.

                    • 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.

                      • Better Mobile Control and Access

                        I've been using your site for tournament for a while and I really appreciate your participation in my last major tournament that I threw by sending us that T-Shirt. I took a pic of the winner with your shirt too and will send you a copy when I get the chance.

                        I just wrapped up another tourney 45% via my Evo, however had difficulty entering the winners when getting to the losers brackets because couldn't scroll down and the pop up box to enter winners didn't show up in an ideal location. Hopefully, you guys will get the mobile version…

                          Currently, if you start a Round-Robin tournament with custom scoring system, the table will only show match W-L-T and Score. The game-set won doesn't add anything differently than match Won! What would seperate the people who have the same score is total points scored in games - which the table doesn't show in custom points mode (but shows in total-point-score in game mode). Should be an easy fix!

                          In short, add Total-Points-Score-In-Game to the table in Custom Points mode in Round-Robin tournament.

                              • Allow voting for each match in a challonge

                                Allow Challonge users to vote once per match in tournaments and display the current vote counts. The organizer would then be able to advance players based on # of votes.

                                This would be useful for tournaments that don't involve actual physical competition (best beer tournament, celebrity tournaments, etc.)

                                • Numbering individual Swiss matches

                                  As a tournament organizer for local CCG tourneys, we've been looking for something a bit more reliable and came across Challonge. After running our tournament using your website, everything worked perfectly but the issue is this:

                                  Is there any way to number the match-ups in the round? This becomes pretty important when most of the people are out of town and have no idea who they're sitting across from (i.e. each match is assigned a 'table')

                                    It is a pleasure to contact you as a very happy recent starter of your Challonge system. I just wanted to pass on my thanks as I have used it to Admin 2 very large recent LANs in the UK (ECL and i40) for FIFA 10 tournaments.

                                    You can see an example of how I have integrated the system in with our site @ http://www.sweetpatch.tv/index.cfm?articleid=6327 and http://www.sweetpatch.tv/index.cfm?articleid=6422

                                    The success of these events resulted in a number of colleagues contacting me about the system we used as they wanted to start using it.

                                    One question/request is that as we…

                                        Let people inserted as Admin in the "Share admin access to this tournament" option finally able to start and finish the tournament!

                                        It's sad that if I create the tour but I'm not at home in the date fixed, I have to tell my password to people in order not to restart/redo the whole bracket thing.

                                          It's kind of annoying as a tourney admin when someone with a challonge account no-shows and I can't edit their name on my brackets. I often have back-ups waiting to play and when they have to replace a no-show who has registered on the site their name cannot be added to the bracket in that person's place. It would be really helpful if this was changed.
