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.

        after all DOUBLE ELIMINATION means, you are ELIMINATED ONLY when you LOSE TWICE... so, if you only LOST one time, you CAN WIN... remmeber this and you wil be OK.

        A loser is someone that lost, a winner is someone that wins...

        in a double elimination tournaments losers NEVER WIN. only ONE PLAYER WINS.. no mather how many games he can win or lose, he must arrive in the end WINNING... in equal conditions...

        in a double elimination tournament YOU ONLY LOSE WHEN YOU LOST TWO GAMES; until you didnt lost the SECOND GAME; you are stil in game, and CAN BE THE WINNER:

        having that said, a rule MUST BE SET to prevent a player that ONLY LOST one match be eliminated from game.. in other words, when the player that come from the LOSERS BRACKET arrive in the FINAL, he can actually WIN the tournaments, as long as he is THE ONLY PLAYER that only lost ONE GAME, so the player that is in the final arriving from the WINNING bracket, never lost a game.. if He lost agains the player from the losers, HE IS IN EQUAL CONDITIONS; so one of them MUST LOSE AGAIN, to be eliminated. the game The Final MUST BE REPEATED.

        That'd be called a consolation tournament

        1) I think you mean "loser" not "looser" (like, this shoe it looser than the other)

        2) The Challonge creators didn't invent double elimination, they just offer it as a tournament type.

        3) Like Anonymous said, it's as easy as disregarding the final column of the bracket.

        Just use double elimination and ignore the 2 finals matches.
