    • 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 us to add and track things on a per match or per tournament basis

        in mini war-gaming we often track "best sportsmanship", "best paint job on army", and "overall match points"

        Often times the wins/losses are tracked separate from overall points which are compiled from a few separate categories. It would be nice to add a category to a bracket and track points per match per category. AND add a tournament category and points for that can be tracked per tournament.

        • Search for tournaments by location

          When searching for tournaments, allow location as a filter so users can discover tournaments to join. This would be an amazing feature because more users because it will increase visibility and enrollment in tournaments.

          For example, askFRED.net is the de-facto fencing tournament organization website in the entire United States. All enrollment information and events are managed/organized through the website (although they have no bracket software, third party software interfaces with their website). Any fencer, or parent of fencer, can search for tournaments by region, state, city, date, even on a map and sign up.

          I don't think this would be…

          • Manage entry fees and display final payouts

            When adding tournament participants, I would like to be able to add if they paid the specified entry fee, specify the pot distribution among the tournament winners e.g. 70/20/10, and have the payouts automatically calculated and displayed on the final results screen. Could this feature be added?

            • Allow bracket predictions to be removed by tournament organizer

              People make tournament predictions in my tournaments aren't following my rules, and I would like to remove their predictions so they don't show up in the leaderboard. This would stop people that make duplicate tournament predictions too.

              • 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.

                      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!

                    • Please add the Dutch language

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

                        • Add a duplicate tournament button

                          I have run almost 200 tournaments using challonge. I can't thank you enough. I love the improvements you have made since I started. Nearly every tournament I run has the same settings. If I could make templates or copy a tournament (maybe just autofill the new tournament page and allow me to edit then save to create it).

                          • 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.

                                In tournaments in which participants advance from pools to a final bracket, such as top 64 or top 8, it would be very useful to be able to place a participant in loser's bracket. the way the bracket exists now, you have to do a bunch of weird false matches in round 1 in order to organize the loser's bracket correctly. i know that it is possible to run a tournament with multiple stages via challonge, but for tournaments which features thousands of entrants it would be helpful to just create a single top 64 or top 8 bracket with…

                                • 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.

                                    • 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)

                                      • 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.
