Support multi-player games

I'd like to be able to use Challonge for three-player games (with different options i.e., one winner per game or points distributed based on finishing order, etc.)

        Like others here, I run Mario Kart tourneys where top 2 out of 4-player matches move on. Just to have this in single-elimination format would be a big help.

        lol please do make this feature. As of right now Mario Kart tournaments are impossible!!! D:

        This is still on the back burner. We're releasing our new vector-based brackets early next week, and they'll be considerably easier to extend for multi-player games. No ETA yet as this is a massive feature, but it's #1 on my personal wishlist.

        Any update on this? It's been more than a year since the last Admin post

        I signed up for a dominoes tournament. I know how to play when you add by fives. I just read that it is played block not in fives. Does anyone know how to play this way. How do I get points this way.

        I would be also very interested in such a feature.

        Currently, being able to do only 1v1 matches is a bit limited :/

        I'm trying to make a bit of a tricky tournament that doesn't seem to be even close to supported by Challonge.

        Essentially it would a large tournament with 96 competitors.

        The first round would have these 96 competitors split into groups of 8, with each group having 2 competitors advance to the next round.

        After that, the remaining 24 competitors would be shuffled, and then split into groups of 6, and have only 1 competitor advance to the final round.

        Then the remaining 4 competitors would face off and there would be 1 winner.

        But as far as I can tell, there's no way to set more than 2 players per round, let alone different amounts for each round or different numbers of winners for each round.

        I play 4 player free for all games where I would like the 2 best players to play the 2 best from another 4 free for all. Currently because I can't drag the players to where I want, the two best might be against each other and I have to label one a losing and it throws the whole thing off.

        Please allow for free for all's now just 1 vs 1.

        Anything new on this ?

        Again this would be a great feature to have - I'm constructing tournaments for Chaos Reborn which allow match play modes of 1v1v1, 1v1v1v1 and 2v2. It would be great to be able to round tournaments using these modes within the Challonge site.

        Keen on using Challonge for International Tabletop Day tournaments but at the moment, we an only use it for our Magic tourneys. Any advancement on this feature?

      • Steven Huf commented  · 

        Has there been any movement on this? It would make this tool much more useful for events such as LANs...

      • Zack commented  · 

        It has been a year. Is there any update on this feature?

      • Ping Zero commented  · 

        Would like to use this for Mario Kart, but using 4 players, top 2 go on, bottom two have second chance. Like double elimination, but with four players. I have done it with a excel spreadsheet, can't wait for this to be implemented :)

        Any update as to when this will go out? Looking to host a doubles table tennis tourney!

      • TheVoid commented  · 

        I am planning on hosting a tournament for a custom game in StarCraft 2 called Marine Arena. It is a 2v2v2v2 team game, so this feature would be very much welcomed, I really need something which is easy to use like challonge, and easy to access as participants, so challonge is ideal, it just doesn't have this feature yet :S .

      • Saxtus commented  · 

        Thank you! This will be something unique to Challonge as far as I know (except if someone else beats you first)!

        Is it going to support scored games (i.e. where the winner can be decided from total points won per round than per rounds won)?

      • Rob McConkey commented  · 

        Thank you thank you so much. We have a racing game in which 4 teams race at the same time with 1 winner. This would be EXTREMELY helpful when this get implemented.

      • Alex Kryvoshei commented  · 

        This is the most anticipated feature I would like to see on the Challonge! Currently there is no way to handle multi-player tourneys in games like Need For Speed when 4-8 players race in every round.

        I have created a mockup of how it could look - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/21390494/multi-play.jpg

        What settings I would like to have for such tourneys:
        - set # of rounds
        - name each round (it should be displayed as 'Round 1 - %custom_name%')
        - highlight 1-3 places in every round (not displayed on the mockup, but it could be similar to current distinction of the 1st place)

        Thank You!
