  1. add MVCI to game list please.

    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...

    • 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.

      • Allow players to re-enter their match scores

        Sometimes players make errors when entering their match scores, and thus need to edit the results. Currently, they must contact an administrator to edit the scores. This can be slightly inconvenient for both parties, and it would be nice if players could make these edits on their own.

        For security purposes, perhaps a player can make any edits to the match results initially, but once future matches are played, they can't make edits that affect which matches would have been played (e.g. they can't change the winner, just the scores). A notification could also be sent to both players and…

        • 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!

            • 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.

              • Move the advertisements to a less predominant portion of the pages.

                For example the advertising banner is on the page above the bracket view. I am sure you could find a better way to get that advertising in without getting in the way of such an important feature.

                I love your guys work BTW.

                • Allow picking the winner without score entry

                  It's not always interesting to track the score of the two competing participants, so being allowed to simply select a winner without entering a score would be useful. If the score boxes are empty don't nag about entering the score but simply use the selected winner.

                  • Doubt

                    Hey man, very nice site!

                    Is there a way to seed (for example) only the top 8 players in a 32 man tournament (the rest would be seeded randomly)?

                    hope you can understand what i wrote, english is not my first language ^^

                    • Let me view/edit bracket outside of scroll box. It is currently cumbersome to view whole bracket.

                      It is very difficult to get a good idea of the whole bracket in the view/edit window because the view is needlessly limited to a small box within the browser view that I have to scroll. I have a big monitor and could probably see a whole 64-person DE bracket within a window, but the scrollbox limits me to a very small viewable area of the window.

                      • Provide JSON Exports of Completed Brackets

                        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.

                            If this is the case, the tournament admin should remove the player from the tournament – this will result in the player’s name being crossed out in the bracket and auto-forfeited matches.

                            Easier avenues for contacting the admin and other players are coming soon.

                          • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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!
