  1. 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.

  2. Discord Integration!

    Integration to Discord in (almost) all forms. I'm specifically suggesting 2 (two) forms:
    1. Discord Profile/Username & Tag in our Challonge Profile (or settings). Can be the "Application Connection" to the Discord account basically. (You can ask the Discord Devs to add Challonge in the account connections :3)
    2. Challonge Bot:
    The bot will post tournament updates in a specific server that the host chooses (must have access to the server ofc).
    The bot can also update the tournament through commands in Discord (Admins and Host probably).

    I recommend that the Developers/Support people have a Discord Server so that the…

  3. 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.

  4. Enable OAuth2/JSONP in API for cross-site AJAX requests

    I'd like to be able to write client/javascript-only apps to interact with Challonge. To do that, it would be nice to be able to do JSONP style ajax requests to the Challonge.

    Since it's all in the javascript, I'd rather not expose my API key in all the calls, so something like OAuth2 (aka Facebook, Twitter) authentication of the API calls would hide the key from prying eyes.

  5. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Blind draw Dart Tournament

    I play a lot of Blind Draw double Dart tournaments. The idea being that you do not know who your partner in until that draw. My suggestion is that a mode where the tournament director enters each player, selects tournament mode - Blind draw - 2 players. Your program would then generate the pairing randomly and populate the bracket. Current tournament directors will not use Challonge because they cannot fill in the players prior to the draw for partner, by the time this is completed and if they were to use your program and they fill in the pairing names,…

  9. Confirmation/Validation button before moving to the next round.

    This might solve some issues of people dropping between rounds. Before the next round populates, have a way for the admin to confirm it is ready to go.

    That way, it gives them time to drop players when necessary.

    As a side note, can you ad a way to manually override the matchups in Swiss? If two people are paired up against players who dropped, it would be nice to be able to pair them together instead of having them sit around doing nothing for a round.

    Thanks!

  10. 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?

  11. 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,…

  12. quick advance option to support customizable round labels

    When I select customizable round labels to change the "best of" for each round with quick advance turned on, I would like to select which player won each set (without scores) instead of just the overall winner.

    The current workaround in our community is not using customizable round labels and entering the amount of sets won as the score of a single set. (which results in confusion about when rounds go from bo3 to bo5)

    edit: mockup! https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EUdPz2pXgAMGyGG?format=png

    I think this is important, because

  13. 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.

  14. Allow bracket predictions to be removed by tournament organizer

    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.

  15. Allow voting for group stage matches

    We use Challonge to create brackets where we vote on songs. We'd like to add a group stage component to this, but it doesn't seem to be possible to use voting there. We'd like to have group stage matches where the "goals" are votes. 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. Then you could use "vote difference" as a tiebreaker.

    Is this something that could just be turned on? It doesn't seem like it'd be any different than voting in elimination tournaments.

  17. Please allow for a non-median Bucholz system for tiebreakers.

    Please allow for a standard (non-median) Bucholz system for tiebreakers, as the median-Bulchoz system can lead to awkward results in small tournaments with a smaller number of rounds.

  20. Share admin access to a tournament via Challonge API

    As a website that takes advantage of the Challonge API, I would like to be able to create tournaments for a group or league of users and have them be able to set the scores through the Challonge website, rather than having them set the scores on MY website and then send them to Challonge via API.

    One way to overcome this obstacle is to allow me as a developer to share admin access (which should include ALL the functionality a tournament creator/organizer has like start/finish a tournament) when creating a tournament.
