Introducing the Bracket Seed Generator – Online Edition

oh_news

This week we’ve added another feature to the OzHadou website: the Bracket Seed Generator (BSG). The BSG is a web resource that can be used to seed elimination tournament brackets. You can find the BSG page in the menu bar under “Events”.

Challonge is a great online bracket resource for tournament organisers, providing live, online brackets with plenty of features and a simple web-based interface. Unfortunately Challonge lacks advanced seeding options such as structured random seeding involving player ranks or regions.

OzHadou uses the BSG to seed brackets for the OzHadou Nationals and other large-bracket tournaments, particularly those where pools or regional seeding are involved. The online edition of the BSG has been designed with Challonge and mobile browsers in mind.

While the BSG is compatible with many browsers we’ve had some issues getting it working in Chrome for mobile devices (desktop Chrome is fine). If you’re having problems in your regular browser please try an alternative and let us know about any issues you’re having.

If you’re interested in advanced seeding methods for tournament brackets visit the BSG page and try it for yourself. To learn more about how to use the BSG, hit the jump and read our BSG User’s Guide.
