    • Multiple Round Robins

      I think it would help to allow users to specify how many round robins to have in a tournament. I'm going to be running tournaments that require a double round robin format, so this would be a great help.

          The first round of changes for this were just rolled out. You can now attach a location and scheduled time to matches; however, there are limitations we’re working to remove:

          (1) Matches can’t be scheduled until a tournament is started. This is due to us not persisting the match records until everything is situated. The main downside is that first round matches will start (and trigger notifications) before they can be scheduled.

          (2) Location and scheduled time are only visible from ‘Match Details’ modal windows. We’re still working to notate the presence of this info in the bracket without creating too much clutter.

          There are several other improvements we plan to make, but I wanted to make what we have available without further delay.

          Thanks everyone for your patience!

        • Moving individual players on the preview screen

          In a lot of the tournaments we run, we will try and "rig" the tournament so that players who normally practice against each other, or play each other frequently, don't have to be matched up. (Allow for new competition, etc.)

          Something that would make this really easy, is that after the seeding process is done and you get to view the preview; if you could just drag and drop players to different spots. This would allow you to resolve the situation I previously described, as well as still see the seeds and make it fair.

          • confirmation of participation

            Would be great to force players to confirm that they will actually play, not just 'register and forget'. Implement adding stage between register and publishing tournament where players have to enter site and click some kinda 'I confirm that I will play' button :)

            • Option for only the Host of the tournament to send emails to participants

              I am hosting a tournament where I had 99 Participants. One of the participants sent bulk messages (approximately 15 messages) to all other participants promoting her games page through our tournament. The messages also asked people for their User Names, email address and passwords so she can sign up for them.

              I spoke with another games page administrator who confirmed this same person did the same thing to his page.

              It would be ideal if we have an option that only the host of the tournament can send emails to participants, this would prevent people spamming other players.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                    Be able to upload starcraft2 replay files (.SC2Replay) about 200KB / file. Less if .rar/.zip.

                    Preferable to bind the files to some games also so that when i click a game i come to a page with all replays, comments and so on

                    • Display the full list of results instead of just top 3

                      In our tournaments, we award a certain number of points to each player based on their final standings. So having that full list would be very helpful for me when awarding points. Additionally, players often ask what place they ended up in; this would alleviate some confusion.

                      I'm fine with the top 3 being displayed by default, but perhaps making that div expandable? 'click to see the full results' or something.

                        Allow users to either rename the rounds "Preliminary - Round 1" or add custom fields to that. With this, tournament coordinators could add tournament specific information to the round, such as Map/Maps for the round, Best of 3/Best of 5, etc. etc.

                          This feature will be available tomorrow morning (USA EST). Organizers will be able to provide up to 3 lines of text in each round label. Also, the default “Preliminary Round” will be replaced with “Round 1”

                          Once available, just click a round label to edit it.

                            While the ads aren't particularly intrusive on Challonge, I'd like an option to remove them from the Challonge website for an extra fee. If nothing else, it would be a nice way for users to support Challonge that don't need a module for their own site.

                              The summary info of matches/games/points/etc is really helpful at the bottom of the Round Robin results screen. However, it's much less meaningful when you can't see a quick how many games have been played or are left for a particular player/team.

                                  • Report Scores Tab - Seperated Round Lists

                                    Report Scores tab is a very nice way to manage who hasn't competed. However, I want to complete all of Round 1 before starting Round 2, and Report Scores combines all rounds into one list. Could we separate all Rounds and even Loser Bracket rounds into individual lists?

                                    • 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.

                                        Allow tournament participants to send emails to one another via a form on Challonge (email addresses would not be revealed).

                                        • 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).
