  1. 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.

    • Please allow for a non-median Bucholz system for tiebreakers.

      Please allow for a standard (non-median) Bucholz system for tiebreakers, as the median-Bulchoz system can lead to awkward results in small tournaments with a smaller number of rounds.

      • Support Magic the Gathering style Swiss tournaments and tiebreakers

        Hi, I'd really like to run Magic the Gathering Swiss tournaments on challonge, but challonge's implementation of Swiss currently doesn't allow this.

        A number of changes would need to be made for this modified system, but this should be quick to impement.

        These changes are:

        Paring
        ----
        When paring in an MTG tournament, each round should be paired randomly, pairing down if necessary, ignoring tiebreakers. Challonge currently pairs by seed, which means that parings are deterministic between rounds. It would be nice to be able to support a cut to top 8, but this isn't necessary because a new tournament…

        • Seed group-stage round robins so that top seeds go to different pools

          As per title, at the moment I can't see any way to make sure that the player ordering by seed in the participants list (best player number 1 and so forth), ends up populating the pools so that seed 1 is in pool 1, seed 2 in pool 2 etc. Basically allocating players to pools by pool instead of by seed position.

          • Edit [misc] data from the participants page

            Previously, I posted a request to view [misc] data from the participants page:
            http://feedback.challonge.com/forums/44455-feature-requests/suggestions/11293446-view-misc-data-from-the-participants-page

            I now see that this isn't enough. I would like to be able to edit [misc] data directly from the participants page. Right now you can enter display name and username/email. I would like a third field that allows us to enter miscellaneous data.

            Why? I just wrote a system with the API that allows us to seed events based on our own external ranking system database. In that database, every user is given an ID#. I would like it so that when people sign up,…

            • Allow fields for team member names

              I run a League of Legends tournament every month and would like an option to allow captains to include team member summoner names. To avoid "ringers", and allow teams to scout each other before games, these would lock for users at a given date/time but still be editable by the tournament organizer.

              • Change default round labels

                In double-elimination brackets, the round labels that are widely used are for winner's bracket: Winners Round 1, Round 2...Quarterfinals, Semifinals, Finals, Grand Finals; and for loser's bracket: Losers Round 1, Round 2...Quarterfinals, Semifinals, Finals. I know the round labels can be customized but it would be better if the above labels could be default for every bracket I make.

                • allow for Table Numbers in Tournament Brackets.

                  In tournaments, rounds are often assigned to table numbers. It would help a lot if Challonge would default to labeling pairings in each round by table number. This would allow the bracket print out to tell players which table number they are assigned to. The default option should be assign players with the highest rank to the lowest table number.

                    If there are less courts then games to play. Should help to manage a tournament, where more games had to be played then courts are available an teams have waiting positions. Just to give an overview of the number of rounds to play, number of games for each team, etc.

                    • Blind draw Dart Tournament

                      I play a lot of Blind Draw double Dart tournaments. The idea being that you do not know who your partner in until that draw. My suggestion is that a mode where the tournament director enters each player, selects tournament mode - Blind draw - 2 players. Your program would then generate the pairing randomly and populate the bracket. Current tournament directors will not use Challonge because they cannot fill in the players prior to the draw for partner, by the time this is completed and if they were to use your program and they fill in the pairing names,…

                      • Ability to change url/subdomain of an Organization

                        We created a new organization about a month ago. The name was too specific and the scope of our organization has grown; hence a name change. However... the url/subdomain is now inconsistent with the new name.
                        It would be nice to have the capability to change the url/subdomain.

                        • Multiple Players/Teams per game

                          It seems that there is a lack of this feature in all of the bracket systems out there. It could be used for actual brackets or also for seeding rounds.

                          Bracket Examples:
                          super smash brothers Free For All tournament.
                          4 players per game. Top 2 move on.
                          - racing games tournaments
                          8 players race. top 2 or 4 move on.
                          - FPS games free for all or multi team tournaments
                          8 players play top 2 or 4 move on.

                          Seeding example
                          8 players, 4 per game, 2 rounds
                          top two players from each game move on to play each other…

                          • Swiss Tie-Breaker #2

                            Is there any way a second tie breaker could be added to the swiss format?
                            First divide even scores by the entrant's they won against's total wins like it already is then break up the scores that are still tied after that by using total wins of the entrants they lost against?

                            I would like to use this program to host tournaments for a game I run but currently we still end up with ties even with the current tiebreaker.

                              • Make an app for iPhone/android

                                It's sometimes hard to use the mobile site if you have to host a tournament where there is bad wifi or none at all. It would be really helpful to have an app that users could log into and have the same features as the site without the bugs that sometimes appear when using the mobile site.

                                • implement "normal" Buchholz in addition to Median-Buchholz

                                  Median Buchholz only works in large tournaments since the best & worst scores are eliminated. For a three game event... there is very little data left to create a valid tiebreaker.

                                    • Discord Integration!

                                      Integration to Discord in (almost) all forms. I'm specifically suggesting 2 (two) forms:
                                      1. Discord Profile/Username & Tag in our Challonge Profile (or settings). Can be the "Application Connection" to the Discord account basically. (You can ask the Discord Devs to add Challonge in the account connections :3)
                                      2. Challonge Bot:
                                      The bot will post tournament updates in a specific server that the host chooses (must have access to the server ofc).
                                      The bot can also update the tournament through commands in Discord (Admins and Host probably).

                                      I recommend that the Developers/Support people have a Discord Server so that the…

                                        It would be nice to have 2 games against the same oponent in round robins, like Away and Home games... Not only in RR but also in SE and DE

                                        • RSS Support

                                          It would be nice if Challonge supported RSS feeds. This would allow people to follow their favorite tournament organizer and get notified when new tournament become available. Players could even follow the bracket via RSS and get score updates as the tournament progresses.
