  1. Provide a way for users to view the tournaments associated to Potential Identities in order to confirm if it is in fact them

    RIght now only the Tournament Organizer is listed, but the name isn't clickable, so it's hard to confirm whether you participated in their tournament. (Sometimes the event is run under the Match Play account of someone who isn't very visible to participants.)

    It would be useful to have the tournament name listed or at least the Tournament Organizer clickable, so you could view their profile.

    Alternatively, being able to search on Tournament Organizer would also be useful.

    • Change player stats

      During a progressive strikes event, the player results page just shows trophies next to my matches. Can we change that to say how many strikes you got or the finishing positions of your group?

      • Additional Customization on Ladder Bracket Format

        Currently, the ladder bracket format eliminates the 4th place finisher. Would be nice to allow TDs to have the option of eliminating bottom 2 or 3 players to speed things along.

          A new variation on the Ladder elimination bracket is available. In a normal ladder only the loser in each four-player game is elimination.

          In a fast ladder both the third place and the fourth place finisher is eliminated and the next two players from the ladder will replace them. Once only four players remain the next game will be the final game (unlike a regular ladder where there will be a three-player and finally a two-player game).

          To create a fast ladder create a “Ladder elimination bracket” tournament and switch the “ladder type” option to “fast ladder”.

        • Provide way to draw a random arena (independent of any match)

          There are various instances where it's handy for the TD to get a random arena that isn't tied to a specific match, typically as a ranking match. In my case, we've needed it for a 3rd/4th ranking match, a tie breaker for our "Top Rookie" award, and a tie breaker for our "First Place (Women's)" award.

          I'd like to see a button in Arenas or Rounds that draws an arena and displays it in a popup. Maybe a refresh/redraw button in that popup. In my case, just drawing from all active arenas, even if they're in-use for the current round,…

          • Flip Frenzy or PinballPinballPinball Score Tracking

            I am interested in a seeing a tournament type that support a "Flip Frenzy" or "PinballPinballPinball" format.

            * No set rounds: You play as many games as you can in the time frame, but there is no concept of a "round" concluding before a new game can be added

              You can now organize Flip Frenzy (a.k.a. Pinball! Pinball! Pinball!) tournaments on Match Play. You can use a virtual queue or run your own queue. If you opt for you own queue MP is just a vehicle for keeping track of results.

              With a virtual queue MP will manage the entire tournament. A countdown timer will keep track of your tournament time so you don’t accidentally keep the tournament running for too long. You can handle players who don’t show up for their games and machine malfunctions.

              There’s quite a bit of freedom hidden in the configuration options as well. You can specify the initial queue size and MP will rotate arenas if you have “too many” arenas.

              Flip Frenzy is a hectic format I strongly suggest anyone wanting to organize these tournaments create a couple of test tournaments in order to become familiar with all the new buttons. You…

            • Display all player points adjustments in a location accessible to players and scorekeepers

              Ideally all TDs will be trustworthy and transparent, but mistakes can be made when things get busy. Manual points adjustments should be visible to other users in some way for verification.

              • Inverse the Line Chart showing Position

                Right now the line chart for rank has it so that the closer to the bottom you are, the better, since being ranked #1 puts you close to the X-Axis.

                Multiplying Rank *-1 would inverse the graph, meaning that if you're higher on the graph, you're doing better.

                      This would be a Message that would possibly live on the standings page and be totally obvious when loading whatever page its on (I am thinking of this for selfie leagues specifically) That would relay info to players (Finals start a 2PM on Sunday) (Players XYZ who have byes can show up at 4PM)

                      • Add Challenge Matches (quick head-to-head match-ups)

                        Easily challenge another player to a best-of-X challenge. Match Play would let you send a challenge to a another player. That person would accept the challenge and Match Play would walk you through the challenge game by game.

                        Results would be stored for each individual game and you'd be able to get an overview of results over time along with any other stats that can be thought up.

                          * Create new groups from scratch (e.g. if many players show up late)

                            I have completed the first and most important portion. It’s now possible to modify players in groups.

                            Click the “cog” icon for a group and pick “Modify players”. Here are you swap out players in the group with other players.

                            I’ve placed the second porion about creating/removing entire groups in a new idea posted here: https://matchplay.uservoice.com/forums/595996-general/suggestions/20503975-let-tds-create-and-remove-groups-at-will

                          • Let TD edit playoffs configuration ahead of time

                            In tournaments where "Create playoffs" is used, it would be helpful to be able to set up the proper "tournament details" before the tournament starts.

                            Currently, it's easy to click "Create playoffs", Create finals bracket, and start playoffs without viewing or confirming that the details are correct.

                                The “Modify players” dialog box now lets you add or remove players from any game with some caveats:

                                • You cannot add/remove players if the game is already completed. You must delete results first in that case. You can still replace players in a completed game
                                • In a head-to-head tournament, you must always have two players (so you cannot add/remove players there)
                                • In a group tournament, you must always have three or four players

                                Despite these limitations this is still useful in group tournaments where you can now add late players to existing groups or remove late players from existing groups (provided it’s not a three-player group).

                                You still cannot do much with the bye game. I will tackle that as part of: https://matchplay.uservoice.com/forums/595996-general/suggestions/32263480-allow-an-option-to-adjust-byes

                                  • Allow API to return player information for rounds in progress

                                    For rounds in progress, the API currently does not return any information about the players or player order assigned to an arena.

                                    For example:
                                    https://matchplay.events/api-beta/tournaments/8988/results

                                    returns
                                    "game_id":212849,"arena_id":15260,"bank_id":null,"status":"started","results":[]}
                                    There is no player info for the arenas in progress, even though the players are shown on the normal Match Play page:
                                    https://matchplay.events/app/tournaments/8988

                                    The players appear when the results of the round are entered. However, it'd be nice to get the players on an arena while it's in progress.

                                    My use case is to use the API to easily display the current players on a Twitch stream.

                                    • Allow the API to access info for test tournaments

                                      Currently, if you mark a tournament as a "test tournament", the API is unable to retrieve info about that tournament, e.g.:

                                      https://matchplay.events/api-beta/tournaments/76wb

                                      returns a 404 instead of the info. Unchecking the "test tournament" option allows the data to be retrieved. Test tournaments would be very helpful for playing around with the Match Play API.

                                      • New tournament format: Ladder tournaments

                                        The tournament format used in the PAPA Circuit final:

                                        "At the start of the third round, the remaining 10 players will be placed in a ladder-style bracket based on their original seeds. The bottom 4 players will compete in a single game, with the lowest scoring player being removed from the contest and replaced by the next highest seed. When only 2 players remain, they will compete in a best two-games-out-of-three series to determine the Circuit Champion and decide who takes home the PAPA Circuit Belt!"

                                            I’ve added PGM and TGP numbers for Pingolf tournaments.

                                            • For regular pingolf tournaments you’ll find a “PGM” tab on the “Scorecards” page on Match Play Live. Use the dropdown to only calculate PGM for the number of players you’re advancing to finals. Example: https://matchplay.events/live/eb2n2/pgm
                                            • For pingolf elimination brackets you’ll find PGM & TGP values for each round on the “Matches” page on Match Play Live. Look on the right hand side at the bottom of each round: Example: https://matchplay.events/live/ebe50/matches
