I just discovered Challonge and quickly thought this was the answer to my online bracket hosting hopes. Alas the seeding options need to allow more manual customization. Our state tournament gives the host league a first round bye, and then sends loser of Games 3 and 4 to the Loser Bracket (13 teams) whereas Challonge forces loser of G2 & G3 to go. Normally that'd be fine, but so many tournaments have minor quirks like this, Challonge doesn't quite fit yet. I think if (1) you allow users to drag-and-drop seeds anywhere, and then (2) set which losing games go to the first L-bracket, that would provide the flexibility needed. I'm really disappointed we won't be able to use Challonge for our DE 13-team bracket. I really looks like a great site, but is not quite flexible enough. Keep improving. Hope to use your service in the future!
