  1. More API Documentation

    Google API Group seems inactive. I'm a web developer and am looking to utilize the api to display tournament info on my website.

    Although I have a good working knowledge of various apis it would help tremendously if some basic code snippets were given to demonstrate some of the api functionality.

    A html example of display tournament bracket would be a great start.

    Thoughts?

  3. Maintain a ladder indefinitely

    its not a tournament with a fixed final. Instead players "challenge" other players and post scores. See freeonlineleague.com for their implementation of ladders. You have a more awesome site.

  6. Support Randomized Teams

    Add a list of participants, which is then randomized into 2v2, 3v3 or 5v5 etc. teams and sorted into brackets

  7. Customizable score table in round-robin

    Round-robin would fit much more use cases if it provided a way to create your own score table with custom columns where you could specify how the score would be calculated. This would mean that you could add additional scoring information to the score table and also make your own rules for who will win.

    In the long term I would love to see some kind of score table template that you could provide yourself, preferably stored in some known markup language such as XML or JSON so that you could either use the Challonge web interface or the API…

  8. Allow us to view 'Active' Tournaments

    I'd like the ability to see which tournaments I'm actively involved in. Sometimes I forget, especially if I'm signed up for a lot. I'd love a view that reduced the clutter of the tournaments that haven't started, or I've already lost - and just see the ones I really care about at this moment.

  9. Ability to manually edit pairings for a Swiss tournament in progress

    If you are running a Swiss-style event, it is sometimes necessary to edit pairings to the event in progress. It would be nice to have the ability to do this.

  10. Provide historical details for organizations

    It would be absolutely awesome if there was some way to track historical records for organizations. Our company uses Challonge for our Friday pong tournaments, and being able to get some statistics out (wins, losses, etc) for circumstances where there's organizational continuity would be great.

  11. Creating Teams with - and _

    I'm a german YouTuber and use the premium Challonge.
    It's a great tool, but when we go for a big tournament with 256 players it takes a long time to bring in their Gamertags byself. So it would be nice, if the can make a Teamname with "_" and "-" in their names.. So we can use your tool completly.

    Also more than 256 players would be nice - 512 maybe ;)

    kind regards

  12. League System

    I thought since this website already offers such a great bracket generator why not incorporate a simple league system? Like a soccer league of even a simplified one such as League of Legends LCS format where there is a bunch of teams (or participants) with their wins, ties and defeats. Since the bracket properties are very similar to the league tables the transition should be simple and very handy to use.

  13. cater to miniature war-gaming

    In miniature war-gaming we don't just track win-loss-tie (which are assigned points like w:3-L:1-T:2) but we also track other point values such as points for holding objectives and kill points. So the progression of the bracket is not as simple as win/loss.

    Here is an example of a tournament rule set for how to run the brackets. These are the rules you use after the initial pairings:

    Subsequent Pairings
    From here on, all pairings and ranks are based on tournament
    point subtotals and pairings from previous rounds. After all
    games in the previous round have been completed, sort the
    tournament…

  15. Additional decisive group match

    If players can not be separated in the group table, it should be possible to add an decisive match between the tied players to determine their position.

  16. Create a modified single bracket

    Hello, I was introduced to this site over the summer by a pool hall manager in Providence, RI and I've been messing around with it since. Recently, I showed this website to an APA league owner and he has fallen in love with it. We currently use it for a qualifier tournament (which is a true double elimination style bracket). Allowing people to follow how their favorite teams are doing is awesome and that's a huge advancement for the league...allowing them to not have to be there and crowd up the pool hall.

    One type of bracket that is widely…

  17. Customized Scores for Tennis

    I'm pretty sure anyone else holding a tennis tournament would appreciate this as well. I have two suggestions.

    The first request is mainly for people printing out the bracket, as those who check out the brackets online can just highlight over the score to see a more detailed score.

    Right now your system only displays match scores in terms of sets (i.e. 2-0 or 2-1) when you print it out. Is there an option that allows for the entire set scores to be displayed? For example:
    2-0 could mean 7-6, 6-0 or 6-4, 6-1, etc.
    2-1 could be 6-7, 7-6,…

  19. Seed group-stage round robins so that top seeds go to different pools

    As per title, at the moment I can't see any way to make sure that the player ordering by seed in the participants list (best player number 1 and so forth), ends up populating the pools so that seed 1 is in pool 1, seed 2 in pool 2 etc. Basically allocating players to pools by pool instead of by seed position.

  20. Allow Round Robin Voting

    I think it would be a good idea to allow others to vote in Round Robin tournaments. Also, random question, how do we know when someone has voted?
