  1. Automatically assign arenas when they become available

    When there are more player groups than there are arenas available, groups will often get assigned "no arena". The TD must manually click to assign arenas after a few games, and whether an arena is assigned is sort of a crap shoot. Often, groups can wait unnecessarily long times if a TD forgets to try again at regular intervals. It would be fantastic if matchplay would automatically assign these arenas when they become available.

    • Put the seed after the player name in playoffs.

      It would be good, so that one doesn't have to toggle back to qualifying to see who is seeded where.

      • Add a column on the "Tournament standings" page for organizers indicating the number of rounds a player has played

        It would be helpful to have an easy way to identify if a player has participated in half of the qualifying rounds without having to check each player's profile. (Something that can't easily be done from the Organizer view because the names aren't clickable in the standings.)

        If there were a column for "# of rounds played" on the "Tournament standings" page for organizers, you could see at a glance whether a player should be included in the IFPA results submission or not.

        Alternatively, maybe players who haven't completed half of the qualifying requirements could be automatically excluded from the…

        • Maintain player name searches when a player is added.

          When a player is added using the partial name search to filter the player list, the search field is cleared.

          Frequently a family of players will walk in together, and it would be nice to filter on last name and then add several players.

          • create a link for streamers to pin an arena to scene.

            Similar to the broadcast link but rather than call the info via a round I would really appreciate just a link per arena that I can enter into the scene on my streaming software for that arena so that when I bring up the area TNA - automatically this link is updated with the current play. The current solution requires alot of manual editing of the scene, where as my suggestion could allow for unmanned streaming of games.

            https://matchplay.events/broadcast/23749?round_id=109258&game_id=581755

            I want:

            • Show round start/complete times

              Matchplay is clearly keeping track of when rounds start and complete, as its being shown on the stats page (Overview->Statistics->Round Durations). Showing the time when each round was started/completed would be beneficial to us.

              • Show arena banks in Big Screen view

                When using arena banks, big screen view prior to the start of the event should show the banks instead of the arenas.

                • Preserve Seed Order in Bulk Upload

                  When doing a bulk upload, the order of the list of players is not necessarily preserved in terms of seeding order because of parallel processing. It would be nice to have an option in bulk upload that says "Order of Players is Seed Order" which would force a linear processing and preserve the order for Seeding.

                  • Entering scores for certain formats

                    Can we delete the ability to enter scores for strikes events where we allow groups to enter their own results? No need to have that option and it can mess with the standings. Also avoids confusion.

                    • Allow TD to reassign the bye in a given round

                      It's possible to change players in a match, but attempting to change the player who had the bye failed. I was trying to handle the case of running a three-player match with loser getting the strike once we were down to just three players in our 4-strikes tournament. The player with the bye in that round needed a strike. I was able to assign them to the match, but couldn't update the Bye to be one of the players not taking a strike that round.

                      This might just be a bug where the page tried to require two players for…

                        • Use launch party pin in every round

                          Designate one or more pins (maybe via a checkbox) to be used in every round. During a launch party I want the new pin played by a group in each round. Other arenas chosen at random as needed.

                            Watching bat city finals live streamed with the giant white matchplay standings was a little hard on the eyes. Thanks

                              It would be great to have a button or something to randomly redraw the game selections for everyone but keep the groups the way it is. Right now the only way to do this is to scrap the round and redo the whole thing.

                              • Restricted division (B Div) standings

                                Add in alternate restricted division standings into MP. Such as B Division standings, and/or Novice division standings. Given how each player’s MP player profile is often linked to their IFPA #, it might be very seamless (from the TD perspective) to simply pick an IFPA ranking threshold, and then let all the behind-the-scenes software comparison of each player’s rank vs the threshold determine whether they’re included in the B Div rankings, etc.

                                  • Include more info on tournament player summary page All matches table

                                    In the "All matches" table include the player in the list of opponents for each game. Show results for all players (1st through 4th, strike/no strike). Show round number for each game. Show current tournament position and number of players (e.g. 3rd of 17) at top of "All matches" table.

                                    It's hard to remember, review or discuss tournament results without all this info. To get this extra info now requires several extra page loads.

                                    Example, I go to a good player's summary page and see he/she finished 2nd in an earlier game, but I can't see who won the game.…

                                    • Add an option for balanced arenas across a series

                                      I like using the balanced player pairings across the series. Our league meets for 12 weeks and this is great for mixing up who you play each week. We have a surplus of arenas, but some players claim they often play the same arenas week after week. I'd love it if the arenas could be balanced across all 12 weeks too. I know it still wouldn't be perfect since the arena choice would be based on what the competitors have played also but would hope it might decrease week to week repeats a bit.

                                      • Group Elimination Format Improvement for Playoffs

                                        The group elimination bracket is a good playoff format after a group match player qualifier. However it has ONE flaw. All round smuts have the same number of games.

                                        Id like to see a way to change that.
                                        For example, on an 8 person bracket where we need 6 more TGP (3 games in four player groups):
                                        The Semi-Finals (round 1) can be two games per round.
                                        The Finals (round 2) can be one game of the top 4 people (since other 4 were already eliminated) - winner takes all.

                                        This is one of many available examples.

                                        • Golf Hole info (Machine and score)

                                          I don’t know how possible this might be, but it would be great if for golf you could assign holes machine names and scores maybe by clicking on the holes or something. This way it keeps a record of this information for future events and does not require storing it off site and losing it haha
