  1. Maintain a ladder indefinitely

    its not a tournament with a fixed final. Instead players "challenge" other players and post scores. See freeonlineleague.com for their implementation of ladders. You have a more awesome site.

      • Customizable score table in round-robin

        Round-robin would fit much more use cases if it provided a way to create your own score table with custom columns where you could specify how the score would be calculated. This would mean that you could add additional scoring information to the score table and also make your own rules for who will win.

        In the long term I would love to see some kind of score table template that you could provide yourself, preferably stored in some known markup language such as XML or JSON so that you could either use the Challonge web interface or the API…

          • Allow us to view 'Active' Tournaments

            I'd like the ability to see which tournaments I'm actively involved in. Sometimes I forget, especially if I'm signed up for a lot. I'd love a view that reduced the clutter of the tournaments that haven't started, or I've already lost - and just see the ones I really care about at this moment.

            • Copy a Tournament / Cup

              We have recurrent Cups/ Tournament every week. Is it already possible to copy an old one with all the setting and without the thing we don't need for the new one? Thanks!

              • Ability to manually edit pairings for a Swiss tournament in progress

                If you are running a Swiss-style event, it is sometimes necessary to edit pairings to the event in progress. It would be nice to have the ability to do this.

                • Triple and Quadruple Elimination Options

                  I looked around and I only saw a post about triple elimination tournaments from about four or five years ago. I can understand that quadruple elimination can be a huge pain to implement but I think that triple elimination would be great to see.

                  I would love to see a triple elimination option. Would anyone else use this?

                  • Provide historical details for organizations

                    It would be absolutely awesome if there was some way to track historical records for organizations. Our company uses Challonge for our Friday pong tournaments, and being able to get some statistics out (wins, losses, etc) for circumstances where there's organizational continuity would be great.

                    • Creating Teams with - and _

                      I'm a german YouTuber and use the premium Challonge.
                      It's a great tool, but when we go for a big tournament with 256 players it takes a long time to bring in their Gamertags byself. So it would be nice, if the can make a Teamname with "_" and "-" in their names.. So we can use your tool completly.

                      Also more than 256 players would be nice - 512 maybe ;)

                      kind regards

                      • cater to miniature war-gaming

                        In miniature war-gaming we don't just track win-loss-tie (which are assigned points like w:3-L:1-T:2) but we also track other point values such as points for holding objectives and kill points. So the progression of the bracket is not as simple as win/loss.

                        Here is an example of a tournament rule set for how to run the brackets. These are the rules you use after the initial pairings:

                        Subsequent Pairings
                        From here on, all pairings and ranks are based on tournament
                        point subtotals and pairings from previous rounds. After all
                        games in the previous round have been completed, sort the
                        tournament…

                          • Additional decisive group match

                            If players can not be separated in the group table, it should be possible to add an decisive match between the tied players to determine their position.

                            • Create a modified single bracket

                              Hello, I was introduced to this site over the summer by a pool hall manager in Providence, RI and I've been messing around with it since. Recently, I showed this website to an APA league owner and he has fallen in love with it. We currently use it for a qualifier tournament (which is a true double elimination style bracket). Allowing people to follow how their favorite teams are doing is awesome and that's a huge advancement for the league...allowing them to not have to be there and crowd up the pool hall.

                              One type of bracket that is widely…

                              • League System

                                I thought since this website already offers such a great bracket generator why not incorporate a simple league system? Like a soccer league of even a simplified one such as League of Legends LCS format where there is a bunch of teams (or participants) with their wins, ties and defeats. Since the bracket properties are very similar to the league tables the transition should be simple and very handy to use.

                                    Wenn in der endgültigen Tabelle einer Gruppe mehrere Spieler absolut gleich sind und somit nicht entschieden werden kann wer weiter kommt, sollte es die Möglichkeit geben ein zusätzliches Match in dieser Gruppe hinzuzufügen um es sportlich entscheiden zu können wer weiter kommt.

                                      • Allow voting for group stage matches

                                        We use Challonge to create brackets where we vote on songs. We'd like to add a group stage component to this, but it doesn't seem to be possible to use voting there. We'd like to have group stage matches where the "goals" are votes. 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. Then you could use "vote difference" as a tiebreaker.

                                        Is this something that could just be turned on? It doesn't seem like it'd be any different than voting in elimination tournaments.
