I have been experimenting with http://www.binarybeast.com and am very impressed. Like battlereports.com, it will generate brackets for us. What's nice is, everyone can create an account on there and then sign up for the tourney directly. Then, while everyone is showing up we can list them as 'confirmed' so we know who's ready to play in the tournament. Alternately, the Tourney Organizer can simply make the brackets himself like I did in these examples:

Single Elimination Tournament:

SCC 16 man cup:

The cup had a group stage and a tourney bracket stage. I spoke to the developer who is continuing to increase the functionality of the site, but it's already pretty good. I recommend having more events in the near future using this site. By the way, there is also an html link to the brackets available that we could integrate into the site for a tournament... oto maybe you can investigate that.

edit: oh yeah, also we can upload reps after each game and it will automatically generate a rep pack!

edit 2: It's a bit tricky to use and get used to but I figured it out more or less after asking a few questions to the developer so feel free to ask me stuff.

I think this is a good idea you would have to talk to duke about integrating the brackets on the website. I can't edit it..

Another thing to boost activity would be to give everyone a day to host a tourney then we could do like bi-weekly tourneys and invalid would not get stuck hosting them all.

I'm assuming Micro got it through the grapevine since this post happened right after I suggested it during our last tournament.

Actually I had no idea you had suggested it lol

It was more recently suggested to me by riptide from tl while I was asking around about tournament resources.
