A bot designed to make online fighting game tournaments run smoother.


Simple discord bot originally built for the Online Local (formerly r/StreetFighter) East Coast SFV weekly tournament to help players see current round and with some commands for TOs. Support for multiple channels to run multiple tournaments at once and allows for custom prefixes, round flavor text, and more. Requires discord.py and pymysql.

How to Use

In order to get started, you need to invite Lizard-BOT to the discord server you wish to use to run tournaments. Invite link here.

Immediately after the bot joins the server use the command !edit botrole <role> with the role of your choice to make it so that only those with that role can access the commands meant for the Tournament Organizers. From there, feel free to use all the commands listed below to adjust the bot to your needs.

For more information on setting up the bot for use in a Discord server, please see our documentation here

For a more indepth guide to what each command does, please see our documentation here

Note about Challonge

If you have a pro-community, use your custom subdomain e.g., redditfighting of redditfighting.challonge.com.

If you are not a pro-community in Challonge, you will have to find and copy the jumble of symbols that is your community's subdomain. Go to your Challonge community page, and go to community settings. Look for the part that says Subdomain PRO and look for the box beneath it. This is your community subdomain.

If the Challonge community tournament does not add the "LizardBOT" Challonge account as a collaborator or a tournament hosted by a Challonge user, the checkin command WILL work but the seeding command will NOT work. This is because tournaments are read-only by default. Any attempts by Lizard-BOT to updating seeding numbers will fail since "LizardBOT" doesn't have permissions.

TO Commands

These commands will only be available to be used by those with the role mentioned above.

!challonge <subcommand> [bracket URL identifier] [OPTIONALS] Uses Challonge's API to pull data into Discord

Bracket URL identifier is what comes at the end of the URL For example redditfighting.challonge.com/wwyi8jhk Bracket URL identifier = wwyi8jhk

If you have a valid challonge link in your !bracket command, Lizard-BOT does not need the bracket URL identifier and will grab the first challonge link that exists in !bracket


Subcommands are still actively being implemented

  • checkin [bracket url ID]
    • Checks the given bracket for users that are not checked in and users whose Challonge names are not in the server
  • seeding [bracket url ID] [number of players to seed(Must be integer greater than or equal to 1)]
    • Seeds the tournament based on points in the spreadsheet and the number of players to seed
