As some of you may already know (either because you read our 2017 Preview blog post, follow us on Twitter or Facebook, have had questions about upcoming features or feedbacks about existing ones), we are relentlessly working on a massive overhaul for the platform. It is way too big a subject for a single article, so we thought we would start by delving a bit deeper into one of the evolving features, which is at the very core of a tournament: the structure.
Currently, when creating a tournament, you have to choose a structure template from a wide selection. It’s quite simple, and presets allow for fast creation, but it can limit organizers looking to create more original formats.
Today, we are proud to announce our Structures V2 on Toornament!
There are no more templates, no more limitations; organizers are now 100% free when it comes to creating their tournament structure. You can freely add, modify and delete stages in your tournaments. And because a few images speak a thousand words:
You will create your structure by adding stages to it, and can do so whenever you want/need to. As in the example, this means you can create all the stages of your competition in a single tournament (qualifiers, groups, league, playoffs and anything!), and imagine if you are having a great tournament, and suddenly, too many people want to participate in your qualifier, you can just add a new one! Each stage is independent, and can be linked to others to have participants move between each stage of the competition through our new placement process (more to come about this soonTM).
We are eager to disclose more of the changes to come with the new platform, and will do so in the following weeks, so stay tuned because 2017 is going to be an amazing year!
