  1. 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.

  2. Court Limit/Waiting Position for Swiss Mode

    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.

  3. Share admin access to a tournament via Challonge API

    As a website that takes advantage of the Challonge API, I would like to be able to create tournaments for a group or league of users and have them be able to set the scores through the Challonge website, rather than having them set the scores on MY website and then send them to Challonge via API.

    One way to overcome this obstacle is to allow me as a developer to share admin access (which should include ALL the functionality a tournament creator/organizer has like start/finish a tournament) when creating a tournament.

  4. 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…

  5. Confirmation/Validation button before moving to the next round.

    This might solve some issues of people dropping between rounds. Before the next round populates, have a way for the admin to confirm it is ready to go.

    That way, it gives them time to drop players when necessary.

    As a side note, can you ad a way to manually override the matchups in Swiss? If two people are paired up against players who dropped, it would be nice to be able to pair them together instead of having them sit around doing nothing for a round.

    Thanks!

  6. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. Add event locations and dates to the matches page table

    On the Matches tab it would be nice for location and time to be displayed so it reflects a real calendar without the user having to click more details.

  10. Free For All in double elimination format

    The new Free For All format is great, but it works more like a single elimination bracket. Can you use this feature in a double elimination format? example 4 people compete in each match up, and X amount of winners will move on in the winners bracket and the losers will move onto the losers bracket. In my case I would have 2 of 4 winners moving on in the winners bracket and 2 of the 4 losers moving that direction.

  13. McMahon Swiss

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMahonsystemtournament

    We would like to use the McMahon system in our Hearthstone tournaments. We have players of very different skill levels. Only a few are really eligible to win, the rest just wants a fun tournament and play as many games as possible. This system is awesome for that.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. "Invitation pending"

    When making a tournament without a public sign-up page, I don't always want or need my players to confirm their participation via accepting an invite. This feature should be optional.

  19. 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…

  20. 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?
