Soccer/Football Points system

Dear Challonge

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 use the system for soccer/football events, is there anyway a points system could be used as an option, i.e. 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss? The table would then be built based on the points tally.

Your feedback on how this could be achieved would be very much appreciated.

Keep up your great work and many thanks
Dave Witts @ Sweetpatch.TV

        Would be a great feature to have on an already fantastic tournament system.

        That is great to hear and will be an excellent addition to an already excellent product.

        Many thanks for taking the time to respond, most appreciated.

        I look forward to the news features being incorporated.

        Best wishes
        Dave

        Dave,

        Thanks for sharing the links. I'm always interested in seeing how people have integrated Challonge into their sites.

        I'm planning on supporting the points system you mentioned in the near future. I'll be extending the Swiss points system to work with Round Robins (define points for a win, tie, set/game win, set/game tie, and bye). My schedule's a little crazy this month, but hopefully I'll get this feature out within a couple weeks.

        I'm also developing 2-stage tournaments (pools populating an elimination bracket), so that will further simplify tournaments with Word Cup-like structures. I'm hoping to make these available in a single module as well (with tabs for switching between pools and the bracket).

        Thanks again for the feedback and encouragement!
        Dave
