It was an idea I had a couple of years ago, while my bodies and I were playing Pro Evolution Soccer on PlayStation 2/3 – Xbox. We basically wanted to organize some competition between us, and it was really easy to organize on a paper.. as long as we stayed less than 5-6! After some researches, I realized that I couldn’t find any good software which could allow an user to create his own tournament/championship.
Because I have a gamer background, I’m really into this specific structure which is : loser/winner bracket, I think it’s way fairer than the regular competition where you lose in quarter final against the future winner..
So I started to develop a software, first in C++/Qt because I had some knowledge in it. Then I totally changed my mind and converted my code to make it a Java application (I didn’t feel confortable with Java at this time, I wanted to learn)
I didn’t finish the application, but I really wanted to handle at least the championship feature, which works perfectly. You can easily generate the return features too . The application is quite basic but it could be useful for some people. You can save and load previous championship that you didn’t complete yet.
