  1. invisible grid

    I was wondering there is no way to hide the bracket till the tournaments starts. We are a big community and create tournaments every month. We would like to have an option to hide the grid till the event starts.

  2. enable custom bye brackets

    Automatic bye generation doesn't let me chose where my byes enter the bracket on a single elimination contest. I am unable to move the structure of the bracket to reflect the byes and there is no consistency.

    For example I may have a preliminary round that has 2 players and the other 7 players are already in the 1st round. So the 7 players get preliminary round byes.

    However if I want the winner of the preliminary round match to play a specific player in the next round I am unable to as Challonge decides where that goes

    A workaround…

  3. Allow players to be added on round robin brackets without resetting the whole thing.

    Isn't it kinda silly when the point of having a round robin is to have everyone fight everyone else? I find it quite annoying that I have to wait til all of my players enter when I could have already started with the same results. I love your site, I really do but in this case what is the point when you can do the same thing easier on paper?

  4. 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.

  5. Allow api to get data from all tournaments

    The current api only allows for viewing and modifying tournaments created on accounts that you have an api key for. It would be useful if you could read data from other tournaments so programs could take advantage of the whole of challonge

  6. "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.

  7. More Rounds in Round Robin

    So for example there are 8 teams in a round robin, instead of only those 8 teams fighting each other once, we should have an option so that they fight each one of them twice or 3 times or more, just like League of Legends LCS where each team fights every team 3-4 times

  8. Count automatically during the month to know the best organizer and the best player who has more points.

    We do tournaments during one month at the end of the month we need to count all the points of each player to see who was the best player of the month and the best organizer of the month , who organized more tournaments , this is a way to encourage the organizer to organize also.

    for example:
    tournament champion 16 players = 1 point

    tournament 32 players the champion = 2 points

    player and organizer counting

    precisariamoas that had this count during the month , would greatly facilitate and many people would come to Challonge page .

  10. 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…

  12. 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.)

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Option to hide "Bracket Preview"

    It would be really nice if you could add a option for tournament hosts to disable the bracket preview since a lot of players think its the actual brackets and start playing ahead of time.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Allow Organizers to set the value for losses as well as Draw/Win.

    There are some newer games that have values associated with losses.

    Win: 3
    Draw: 0
    Loss: 1

    Can you allow Challonge to manipulate loss points?

  20. 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.
