Multiple Round Robins
I think it would help to allow users to specify how many round robins to have in a tournament. I'm going to be running tournaments that require a double round robin format, so this would be a great help.
Now that you can do multiple round robins, the schedule list of matches can get really long, so I’d like to follow up later with a match grid.
This would be a great feature to add - Lots of sports feature home and away fixtures within the same season so even being able to play the same person twice within a round robin would be a useful addition to the site functionality.
This is a great site already btw - Thanks for all the hard work! :-)
What is the update on this request? When can we start using a Round Robin system where each player play other player in its group more than once?
Thank you for looking into this.

I also would like to have the chance to set the number of Rounds Robins and the number of players promoted to next phase: then, Challonge will automatically choose how many players will compete in each Round Robin (atm is the opposite!).
Is this possible yet?
Is this still in the works? I have a group from a gaming community that plans to use Challonge for tournaments, but we are having to hold two matches at a time to get around this limitation. It would be great if we could do double round robin tournaments!

You could overcome 'clutter' on this page by just using a simple tab based system up the top that we can label possibly?
I've been running double RR's for several years using a googledoc spreadsheet (this one is for 6 players, but I have them for up to 12) -- the major problem being the high maintenance for an unsecurable editable html doc with many players trampling on it with their smartphones. Here is a sample template. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aq5OJV9pvnZvdGtlYlIxcTlzUUJDdG5UZ05NRTJOWkE&usp=drive_web#gid=0
I shifted to using Challonge a few months ago because it is more secure, much easier and friendlier to phone's and pads. I'm gathering from this thread that there are problems with a DRR using the RR bracket, and just found realized the problem -- why is this one scored as it is? the first and second place player had identical game/set scores, but the second place player has a greater spread. I'm supposing that because the first place won both games in the match with the second place that there is a bonus hidden in the matrix. How is the winner determined by Challonge?
I have tournaments run with 9 participants and everyone faces one another only once, we run it with madden 25, and we would all like to see multiple RR, at least a double RR. Would add a lengthy tournament with chances to come back and win against someone you might have lost to the first time around. Not sure why this is not being implemented :( I still enjoy this site anyway :)
We, at Sparrows Scrabble group on FB, also play a Monthly RR Tournament where we have multiple Groups with around 10 players in each participating and I have to create a separate Tournament for each Group and then collate the results of all into one larger Group using an Excel Spreadsheet. It will be nice if we can club tournaments to each other and compile them into one b ig scorecard at the end.
Can't you add double round robin tournament ? and goal scored & conceded row to the table ?
i would like this. i run a lot of triple round robins with a bonus point awarded for defeating the same opponent all 3 times.
With Multiple Round Robins, I would like to see the "match identifier" changed from letters (seen at http://challonge.com/2012nysphsaad2126) to numbers (seen at http://www.nysphsaawrestling.com/DivisionII.pdf)
Adding into this....
I'm looking to add a lot of features that are available by a piece of software that is simply dated, or more accurately, poorly coded/designed.
The software can be found at http://www.brownbagdata.com/.

I'd recommend following luigiman2201's tip on running a multiple round robin. Development of the current site is pretty much frozen while its replacement is built -- improved architecture is needed to accomplish some of the features I'd like to deliver.
i agree as well, when will this feature might be available please?
Yes, this is highly recommended.
However, there is a way to use the single round robin system as a double round robin.
choose a round robin, use custom points, giving (for example) 3 points for each game/set win and 1 point for each game/set tie, playing two games per match.
This is the closest coming to a double round robin.
Agreed. As it is right now, I have to use two separate round robin tournaments when a simple multi-round round robin would work.
