We have very specific double elimination brackets created from 4 teams up to 13 teams. Over the years, we have refined the brackets so that teams who lose in the first round all play equal amount of games if they make it back to the championship. Moreover, the is a paid tournament so teams need to pay to continue after their 2nd game.
Allowing for a custom bracket would allow us to implement a fair / even bracket for all teams participating.
In the current double elimination brackets, once you get to 9 teams and over, the loser bracket becomes very lopsided as to who has to play how many games to get back to the championship.
