  1. 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.

          Someone will soon be assisting us with French translations, but we could use more help. Please let me know if you’re interested in volunteering in exchange for Challonge Premier. Thanks!

        • 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.

          • Please add the Dutch language

            Please add the Dutch language to the site. This is missing. 32 million people speak it worldwide.

            • Links to report scores for users without accounts

              It would be nice if users without accounts, that sign up using the sign-up page would get a link they could use to report their scores.

              Much like the link they currently get that allows for unregistering from a challonge, but it would allow to report scores as well.

              • it will be GREAT when make able to use national flag to bracket.

                it will be GREAT when make able to use national flag to bracket.
                why you don't add this option.
                if user can add 'national flag' or 'icon'(such as players icon or team icon) to each player area on bracket, then challonge will be Legendary .
                i hope that as quick as fix this.

                • Enable OAuth2/JSONP in API for cross-site AJAX requests

                  I'd like to be able to write client/javascript-only apps to interact with Challonge. To do that, it would be nice to be able to do JSONP style ajax requests to the Challonge.

                  Since it's all in the javascript, I'd rather not expose my API key in all the calls, so something like OAuth2 (aka Facebook, Twitter) authentication of the API calls would hide the key from prying eyes.

                  • Match Comms to settle the match terms between teams (day, time and server)

                    Hello, I am managing Americas Army Games for over 10 years, and we always required a Match Comms feature, were the teams are able to discuss via posts, the terms for their matches, like for exemple, the day, the time, the server, etc, etc. I would like to suggest that this feature be added in the Challonge Tournaments Match Details, like the attachements, the time and location and the report score. This way, Challonge avoid the need of a paralel forum for that. ESL, TWL and other Gaming Communities use this features aswell.

                    • Add the option to start an additional bracket if waitlist is big enough.

                      If I have a 16 person tournament I'm hosting online, and have 32 people in it, I should be able to start a second bracket.

                      Or if I have a 32 person bracket with 48 people registered, I should be able to transfer those on the waitlist into a 16 person tournament without them all having to register again.

                      • invisible grid

                        I was wondering there is no way to hide the bracket till the tournaments starts. We are a big community and create tournaments every month. We would like to have an option to hide the grid till the event starts.

                        • THREE POINT SYSTEM (IIHF, NHL, KHL, Hockey overall)

                          3 points for winning in regulation.
                          2 points for winning in OT/SO.
                          1 point for losing in OT/SO.

                          Teams winning in regulation are awarded three points, the loser none. Where there is a tied score in the Group Stage regulation time, teams are given one point each. A five-minute overtime will follow and, if the score is still tied after overtime, Game Winning Shots will be used. The team winning in overtime or shoot-out is awarded the extra point for a total of two points.

                          • Allow players to be added on round robin brackets without resetting the whole thing.

                            Isn't it kinda silly when the point of having a round robin is to have everyone fight everyone else? I find it quite annoying that I have to wait til all of my players enter when I could have already started with the same results. I love your site, I really do but in this case what is the point when you can do the same thing easier on paper?

                            • 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,…

                              • Double Loss option for Swiss

                                Basically a tie without points. To be used when neither player arrived on time for a particular round, and in some other situations as well (I know it happens in some card games, at least)

                                  The current api only allows for viewing and modifying tournaments created on accounts that you have an api key for. It would be useful if you could read data from other tournaments so programs could take advantage of the whole of challonge

                                      So for example there are 8 teams in a round robin, instead of only those 8 teams fighting each other once, we should have an option so that they fight each one of them twice or 3 times or more, just like League of Legends LCS where each team fights every team 3-4 times

                                      • Count automatically during the month to know the best organizer and the best player who has more points.

                                        We do tournaments during one month at the end of the month we need to count all the points of each player to see who was the best player of the month and the best organizer of the month , who organized more tournaments , this is a way to encourage the organizer to organize also.

                                        for example:
                                        tournament champion 16 players = 1 point

                                        tournament 32 players the champion = 2 points

                                        player and organizer counting

                                        precisariamoas that had this count during the month , would greatly facilitate and many people would come to Challonge page .

                                        • create a Joomla! Plugin.

                                          I Think a Joomla! Plugin will bring you many many MANY people to use your Challonge! brackets.
