From the 16th to the 18th of April was held in Poitiers the Gamers Assembly, which is the oldest and largest LAN Party in France. After 2 years of break due to the COVID, the Gamers Assembly returned and gathered during 3 days 1,600 players and around 20,000 visitors.
Toornament.com accompanied the event, with a Starter Plan used to manage 11 of the Gamers Assembly competitions, and share their results.
11 tournaments and as many different formats
As the French largest LAN Party, the Gamers Assembly is gathering many communities of players on different games. They have to build tournament formats according to many different constraints such as the game itself, the number of participants, the duration of a match or the player preferences.
Toornament.com was able to answer all of their competition format needs. Thus, from swiss rounds to single and double eliminations, round robin groups, duel or FFA matches, all kind of stages and match formats were used on Toornament.com during the Gamers Assembly.
A good example is the League of Legends Mastercard Nexus Tour. This competition gathered 72 French teams. The competition started by a swiss round stage of 7 rounds. At the end of this stage, the top 8 teams were qualified for a single elimination bracket. All other teams were dispatched in 2 different double elimination brackets according to their ranking in the swiss round stage.

Widgets & Toornament TV
The Gamers Assembly used the widgets feature from the Starter Plan to provide its competitions results directly on its own website. The widgets allow you to display your tournament information on your own website without development needed.
The widget is also very useful to share your tournament information on a third party website, such as a media partner or a sponsor.
