As our platform powers all the ESWC tournaments this year again, a new challenger arised: two 128-slots, open Hearthstone tournaments…
These type of events are hard to handle, as you can’t predict who’s going to show up, if participants are aware of the rules, the schedules etc. and ultimately prepare accordingly. Everything has to be handled on day one. This can lead to a need for a massive team admin required to constantly welcome and guide the participants.
The objective here was to rely as much as possible on our services to run a large scale tournament with a small admin team composed of 2 people at the welcome desk and 1 person to report the match results.
The admins provided each participant with a flyer showing the instructions to download the Toornament eSports app and from there, check up their tournament’s schedule. Knowing who your next opponent is and where you stand in the bracket proved to be very useful.
With the addition of the Toornament TVs, information was spread effectively around the gaming zone and everyone, from the organizers to the participants, were on the same page from beginning to end.
We believe more and more tournament organizers will rely on our solutions to save time human ressources. We’re already working on our next features in this view: soon will be released the much anticipated participants login, allowing them to report their match score by themselves!
