as a major feature request and improvement for joomsport I would like to suggest more and in-depth bracket customization.
Meaning to have the option to display for instance to big groups A and B in a tournament and the group A bracket is on the left and the group B bracket on the right. Also having the option to customize each stage of the bracket.
16 Teams, 2 Groups A and B. 8 Teams per group.
First Stage: Qualifying Round as Elimination Match. From 8 teams per group, 4 will proceed to the next stage in the bracket.
Second Stage: The bracket mode is now Double Elimination.Of the 4 teams per side/group 2 teams will proceed in the next stage.
Third Stage: The bracket mode is now Single Elimination again. But now the finalists of the second stage and group A will face the finalists of group B.
As you see, this can get quite complex. At the moment it is kind of possible to create this kind of GSL format with multiple brackets of single and double elimination. But I need to let multiple "final games" end without being played or scored, which will lead in weird season stats. Also visually it is not as beautiful to have multiple brackets just lined up below each other, than having the possibility to make 2 groups of brackets which line up next to eachother and then just have those 3 stages described above line up below eachother.
Also at the moment it is not possible to display a heading or title above a bracket which makes such a complex format very messy. So that actually is my second rather tiny feature request to enable displaying a heading/title for each bracket.
As a third idea I want to suggest a bracket displaying module, so brackets can also be displayed seperated from the season table.
Thank you for your suggestion!
Shortly we are planning to implement the new features collecting and voicing system on our site for all our products, I'll add your request to the new system. if feature collects many customer voices, we will be moving it to development.
