Challonge, The New Game Plan!

Hello all!

The admins at TNL have always been striving to improve. Starting from February 2015, we will implement Challonge for all scheduling/league reporting, in order to simplify and replace the forum-sheet system. Even though this will require a new account on Challonge, you can register quickly with your email, Facebook or Twitter. Your cooperation will help us make the league 50%+ more efficient! :smile: :heart:

Thank you so much for being a part of this league! Registration on Challonge is available at, and you can visit our page at Currently there is only a test tournament among the admins, but we will create one for every monthly class in the future.

Stay tuned for a detailed TNL+Challonge tutorial! :blush: :sunny:


Please create a Challonge account before January 30, 17:00 UTC. Go go go! :smile:

Hi! This new system is really welcome, it will allow us to rationalise the schedules and reports, :slight_smile:

I have, however, one comment: as Challonge has its own system of usernames it is possible that our OGS/forum username is already in use in Challonge (that just happened to me, haha). I don’t know if you already figured out a solution, but I suggest that we can enclose our username between underscores – for instance, in my case “ygramul” was already being used, but I could sign up with “_ ygramul _” (without spaces… the forum interface interprets a word surrounded by underscores as italics, lol!). This plan allows for a reasonable similarity between the usernames, which, I think, will be useful in the future.

Hey ygramul!

Noted, _ ygramul _ (without spaces) will be your Challonge username. :slight_smile: Guys, if your OGS username(s) are already taken on Challonge, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Mine (yellow) was taken in Challonge, my username is now _ yellow _ (without the spaces)

You don’t need to post your names if your Challonge and OGS usernames are the same. But demonstrations of uniqueness are always welcome! :blush:

The test tournament looks already great. I am looking forward to try out…


ok, thanks, just checking.

My username is two words Infuerno Fenikusu that’s inferno phoenix in Japanese, Challonge does not allow two non-connecting words for your username so I chose Infuerno_Fenikusu
