  1. Insert country flag from IFPA Profile in Player List

    Could be interested for many organizers of tournaments to see from which country players are. It would be great if you could insert the flag for each player.
    I announced for example player list for a future tournament.
    So in this type of list and also in Standings, would be great if you add country flag from IFPA-Profile. So anyone who is interested can see from where players are.

  2. Make the matchplay.live link a hyperlink

    When starting a tournament, have the matchplay.live link be a hyperlink that opens in a new tab. Currently we have to copy and paste the link.

  3. In a series, allow "Keep best N results" in addition to option of dropping "worst N results"

    When creating a tournament series, I would very much like the option to keep the best N results in addition to the option of dropping the worst N results. For example, I'd like the option to keep the best 2 results. The only workaround for this does not behave in the desired way.

    Choosing "drop worst two" results causes the series rankings to be nonsensical until at least three results have been logged. Whereas, "keep best two" would rank according to the first result after the first result is entered and according to the best two results after the second…

  4. Flip Frenzy - Change the order of items for the next match to - NAME / Player 1 / NAME / Player 2 / Machine

    I went to my first Flip Frenzy tournament and had a BLAST - but I noticed that I had to pay careful attention to EVERY match announcement, because the machine and player numbers were announced before the names were. Often players had to go to the desk and ask for clarification because they heard their name, but not what their number or machine was. If you change the order, people will know to listen for their name and that their number and machine will follow.

  5. Display last event participation date when viewing "All Players" list

    We use Match Play for our league, and are currently in our 19th season. When viewing the "All Players" list and trying to determine which players/entries to "Retire", it would be useful to sort the list by the date of the last event they played in.

  6. Preferred machines (for streaming)

    Hi.
    We are pinball tournament streamers (JDL PINBALL) and would love to have a feature where particular machines (with our streaming rigs on) could be given priority in the selection for each round. This would prevent qualification rounds where neither of our rigs are set-up.

    By the way, Matchplay is awesome, we use it for just about all of our tournaments here in Germany.

    Cheers!
    Jim

  7. Custom Best Game scoring option

    Add a Best Game option format where the organizer can customize it and/or define it? It would give us TDs as bit more flexibilty…..

    For example, this weekend we are doing a best game format across 6 pins where only the Top 5 on a pin get points (10/7/5/3/1), the rest get zero points.

  8. Arena "Zones"

    Create the ability to organize arenas by "zone". We have multiple venues with games in several smaller rooms/areas. There are many rounds that have the majority of the tournament in one room, leaving other rooms empty.

    If matchplay could pull balanced arenas based on "zone" the distribution of people would be spread out throughout the venue.

    Also, TDs could potentially set "zones" based on the era of game. Theoretically making sure that all types of games are being played each round.

    Just an idea I've had.

  9. Delete a planned tournament

    If I have a planned tournament I should be allowed to delete it since no statistics will be lost. If I accidentally clone the wrong tourney I can't delete it. I should be able to.

  10. Add "Games played" column to best game format standings page

    When playing a limited qualifier 'best game' format a lot of people have trouble figuring out how many games they have left to play.

    Other issues are not knowing what position they are in based on scores around them since a lot of players wait until the last minute to put in their final game

    Currently the only way to do it for players and TDs is to go into each profile on the standings page and count the number of games played manually.

    If there is a simple column on the standings page with a number of games counted…

    It would be good to have a QR code for a series that we can put on pins or posters.

  12. Provide a Hide Queue option in Frenzies

    Since we run frenzies with very small queues at Bluffs, I'd like to have the option to hide the queue, so that players can't game who they play.

  13. Add an Option in Swiss Formats to Draw Three-Player Games for Best Players

    Right now the Swiss Format will assign three-player groups to the bottom of the standings. It would be appreciated to have an option where three-player groups are assigned to the top of the Standings. The better players arguably play longer games, and this will allow the assignment of three-player groups to those players which would potentially speed up play.

  14. Flip Frenzy Finals Option

    When running Flip Frenzy competitions, I would like to have the option to select Flip Frenzy when selecting "create finals".

    At all of my events, we do 3 hours of qualifying with the top 10 advancing the to Finals. The Finals consist of another 60 minute Flip Frenzy.

  15. Provide more options to assigning arenas

    I've noticed on TILT several people have requested more options for assigning arenas, mainly from a point of view to control crowds and spacing.

    Example #1 from Ron - I am running a group matchplay tournament with 40 players and 30 arenas/games for 8 rounds. 2 of the games are upstairs, the other 28 are in the basement. For crowd dispersement purposes, I want the 2 upstairs games to be used every round. Is this doable in the Match Play software?

    Example #2 from Chad - I run several tournaments a year at a private home that has games on…

  16. Add “Previous Round” and “Next Round” arrow buttons

    On Matches page, just under the Select Round pull-down menu, add two buttons to immediately go back one round or advance one round.

  17. Group Knockout, Progressive [Balanced] strikes (0/1/2/3)

    Not sure if this would be a "new" format, or just an option on the existing Progressive strikes format.

    The scheme is:
    0, 1, 2, 3 strikes for four players (same as Progressive)
    0, 1, 3 for three players (between Fair Strike and Progressive)
    0, 2 for two players (same as Fair Strike)

    In a Fair Strike playing to 6 strikes guarantees players 3 rounds of play, and in this case, we'd play to 7 strikes (or maybe 8).

    Reasoning behind this is a scheme where strikes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place are all different. Currently, in Fair…

  18. Use Arena Banks during round robin play

    Our Head-to-Head league sometimes plays multiple games during a session, and we like to arrange games by theme, average playing time, or dmd/ss/em style.

    We have to jury rig the system to make this work and would like to allow banks to simplify the players' experience. Double round robin doesn't help.

  19. Add win percentage option for Flip Frenzy standings

    vs. most wins. Some people seem to prefer this metric and there are pros and cons to both. Would be nice to be able to choose.

  20. Card based best game - display each machine's results in descending order

    As it is now in the big screen view, each game's results are listed in the order of the players who have played it. I would suggest showing the best result on top and then in descending order.

    It's entirely possible that I missed something and that this already exists...
