  1. Swiss available as first stage.

    Great job guys : ) I was just wondering if it was possible to have a Swiss available as first stage for a two stage tournaments.
    What I do after a few rounds is to divide the standing list into groups of four people, like positions 1,2,3,4 go to group 1 and they play for positions 1 to four. Positions 5,6,7,8 go to group 2 and play for final standing 5 to 8.
    This way tournaments are more compelling to the participants because they have a play off games in the end for final posistions, and swiss is a great…

        • Add ability to claim results to your challonge account

          Similar to how it's done on some other sites (such as smashboards). Let a user sign in to their account and be able to claim some performance from a tournament as theirs and have it to show up under their "tournaments" tab.
          ie. I participate in a tournament in person with no online setup, it's bracket gets set up in challonge (without using email addresses), allow me to tag a participant as "me" after the fact so it shows up in my tournament history. (To prevent fraud you could require that the tournament organizer approves each request.)

          • Chrome/Desktop notifications

            Just like with Facebook, Twitter and various other sites, how about having Chrome or Desktop notifications for next matchups and tourney starts/ends in addition to the emails? It would be a lot more convenient to the participants that might be multitasking or doing something else during the times they would need to be participating

            • Teams (Rosters)

              I would love to see a Team ROSTER listing the individual players with in a team. This way we could track players stats (W/L) with each match and know who was in each match/game.

              • Allow additional participants to in-progress round robins

                Round robin style conditions don't rely on past matches to set up future ones. Why not then allow participants to be added with scores intact? This would benefit long running round robins in particular.

                • 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).

                  • provide a location option

                    I know of quite a few people that now use this system for dart tournaments. Having a place to enter a match location, such as a board number or location, would be amazing.

                      • Save tournament results before reset

                        We use to reset tournaments every year to start new ones. It would be great, if there was a history or a save option, so we can go back to check the old results. I know, that we could make screenshots too, but then the information about the points i the games won't be saved.

                        • Randomize matches

                          I would like an option to randomize the matches, as opposed to selecting the victors. This way, the tournament would be completely fair. Here is how I would go about lt: when you select the question mark next to a match, there will be a, 'Random', checkbox in between the two (or more) contenders. There should also be a, 'Randomize All', feature, which randomizes the victor of the entire tournament.

                          • allow Top Cuts in Swiss Tournaments

                            In most trading card game tournaments, after the Swiss Rounds end the tournament continues with a single elimination for the Top X ranked players. It would be important to allowed the tournament organizer to be able to choose between the Top 8, Top 16, or Top 32 players when using this feature.

                            The reports for the round would continue but omitting the Tie-Breaker Score & Score data for the players in the top cut elimination rounds.

                            Pairings for the elimination rounds would follow the standard pair the best with the worst formula.

                            • "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.

                              • Add a function for ELO Rankings

                                ELO rankings are commonly used in Chess and TCGs to determine the quality of a player over a period of time. Basically a player gets more ranking when he beats a good player (one who has a relatively high ELO ranking), than when he beats a "bad" player, and vice versa.

                                  Our game can allow up to 5 players to compete- we are having to do this by hand. Is there a way the site can set an algorithmic option for this?

                                    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.

                                    • Brakets with different skill divisions

                                      Split bracket into different divisions, for example to show skill-level difference. Usefull if you want to handle multiple groups of users in one event (bracket).

                                        It would be great if you could add an undo button, for instance in the log. A simple button to undo starting the tourney, the final stage, etc.. That would be awesome!

                                        • Custom Brackets

                                          I've come across a couple different variations of brackets that I would love to be able to host on challonge, however my choices are limited. My thought is that there should be the option to create a customized bracket, one that is not one of the already hosted options. I would also like to be able to customize where each participant goes based on how they finish in a match up.

                                          For example, I would love to be able to run a bracket where more than one person/team is in a match. For games such as Super Smash Bros. there…
