  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. Create 3 Game Guarantee Brackets

    A 3 Game Guarantee Tournament simply means that every player is guaranteed to play a minimum of 3 games. 3 Game Guarantee Tournaments are set up similar to Double Elimination Tournaments. There is a winner's bracket and a loser's bracket, the main difference being players that lose their first two games will get to play an extra game in the loser's bracket in order to ensure everyone gets to play at least 3 games.

    Example:
    https://www.printyourbrackets.com/3-game-guarantee-tournament-brackets.html

    A similar algorithm can be used to create 4 guarantee brackets, 5 game guarantee brackets, etc.

  3. Lowest score player receieves bye, instead of random

    We had a head-to-head matchplay tournament where 1 player received a bye each round. The would sometimes go to the player with the most points, cementing their qualification for the final. If instead the bye would go to the player with the least points, it would have less impact on the final qualifying.

  4. Add strikes to single elimination format

    Single elimination is good final format but it is missing possibility to Best of X games. We never play finals with only one machine.

  5. Group matchplay scoring for 3 player groups - 3/2/1

    New group matchplay scoring 3/2/1/0 for 4-player groups AND 3/2/1 for 3-player groups. This works well for swiss pairings where 3 player groups are at the bottom of the standings and avoids the messiness of .5 pts.

  6. Stop creating new games when pausing flip frenzy

    Can we have an option to stop creating new games when you pause the flip frenzy timer?
    Much like when the timer ends it asks if you want to create a new game or clear the queue.

    It would make breaks a lot easier to manage and put the players back in the queue until you resume or create games on arenas.

  7. More than 4 strikes group knockout tournament?

    I know we have fair strikes and progressive strikes but the standard 2, 3, or 4 strikes with 4 strikes being the max. Can we increase the max to 5 or 6? I am asking for the format where you give a strike to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Only 1st place doesn't get a strike. According to IFPA the max is 20 TGP. If we had more strikes allowed we could get that to 25 TGP but the system maxes out a 4 strikes.

  8. Please Fix Flaw in IFPA seeding for Tiered Swiss Group Match Play

    When you choose IFPA seeding and then tiered swiss in group match play, the first round for group 1 is supposed to be the best player, worst player, middle player, middle player. But the system doesn't recognize a person with no IFPA number as the worst player. It recognizes them as the best player. So you get the new person as seeded #1 best player instead of last position. Could you please put in a default rank of a new player as being worse than anyone else (like 99,999) who actually has a rank so it will seed these players…

  9. Display round Robin tournaments one round at a time

    I love the idea of a Round Robin tournament but I hate how matchplay displays it.
    It shows every round at once which can be confusing for players. Is there a way we can have it show a round at a time then move onto the next round?

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  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 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    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.
