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.)

        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.

        Hello,
        Anything new on this ?

      • Phil commented  · 

        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!

        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!

        Implement this so you can play any game with more than 2 players.

      • Rob McConkey commented  · 

        YES! Please please implement this. Right now you have 2 teams compete in a match that produces 1 winner. But the game we play is a racing game that actually has 4 teams that compete at once which then produces 1 winner. Is there a way to increase the numbers of teams per match from 2 to 4?

        Thank you very much, and this is a great site

        This is ESSENTIAL if we are ever to use Challonge to control brackets and pairings for board game tournaments. I help plan/organize tabletop tournaments for several large conventions (PAX, Emerald City Comicon, etc.) and have been desperately looking for a tourney admin/bracket system that can handle 1v1v1v1v1 in Round 1, and then gracefully drop to 1v1v1v1 in Round 2 if needed.

        This is high on my request list as well. Would be very useful for game tournaments that allow more than two players, such as Smash Bros and Mario Kart.

      • chad franklin commented  · 

        this would allow challonge to be used for pinewood derbys (for scouts and other organizations)
