On the big screen view—I use a separate large tv and drag that window over to it so everyone playing in the tournament can see where they stand and what game they are playing next. The problem is you can only see the top 25 or so people in the standings because the 1/3 of the screen it’s put into doesn’t “auto scroll” itself up or down and doesn’t allow me to put a second column up to see everyone on one screen unless I make the print so small you can’t read it. Can you somehow make the big screen view adjustable so I can have a second column for standings or something similar so all players can see where they stand in the tournament while it’s going on? I know I can broadcast the link to them on email but it’s cooler to see it in the big screen during the tournament!
On tournaments that are using arena banks, The big screen view could be improved by showing which groups are on which banks rather than showing every arena that every group is playing on.

In Best Game tournaments that don't use Match Play's queueing system, it would be awesome to be able to display the top few scores on each machine instead of a bunch of empty queues.

For tournaments with large numbers of strikes, the big screen currently shows each individual "X" instead of switching over to the number of strikes once you hit 5 – like how the standings screen currently handles strikes.

For "Best Game" formats - could you add a setting so that when current standings are displayed on the Big Screen, we can display the order by actual score on the games rather than by points? We have a lot of newer players at our events, and they get really confused when they score 200,000 points in a game, and see their name next to a "97" on the board. We would like to display the exact scores for things like showing the score to beat for a qualifying cutoff. Thanks!

I'm trialing for a card based best game format (old PAPA style).
I think for this case (and possibly others) it would be best ensuring all the arenas are visible on screen, but limit to showing only the top X scores in each arena (limited to ensure all arenas are visible without scrollbar)
I guess it's possible that other people may prefer to see ALL scores on each arena. So maybe we need some projector view configuration settings. If organiser prefers to show all scores, then it probably needs the view to automatically switch between arenas
Another thought is that (again, with this best game format in mind) it might be nice to see the points awarded for each score. That might allow players to plan some strategy about which games/which scores they need to shoot for to advance.
Andreas, can you add some more detail to this idea? I don't think it will get many votes versus the others which have more detail under the headline
Just have a list of available data to show on the screen per format. Group matchplay? You can show current groupings, current standings, previous round results, current round results, etc. Then you can choose to only show one of them, or up to three types of info.
Have the option to replace the queue with the ladder for each of the arenas. Where the ladder does not fit on the screen the ladder automatically scrolls up and down. Where there are more arenas than will fit on the screen the arenas automatically rotate. Arrange the arenas in alphabetical order.
