The Toornament platform is now fully responsive

Worldwide mobile usage is on the rise, and Toornament usage is no exception to this. We have recorded a huge increase in the number of users that visit the platform from their mobile device, and as such, the subject has become a priority of ours.
Yes we do have a Mobile App, but its traffic has not seen the same increase, and has been steady for a while, and we therefore opted for an all-responsive web design.

As of today, all of Toornament features are optimized for all devices you may have (just like the Organizer Dashboard has been for a while), from your desktop computer to your mobile phone, with laptops and tablets in between, directly on the website:

responsive

This will allow us to focus on what’s really important: updating the platform, and providing the best esports experience there is. Consequently, the Toornament Mobile App will be withdrawn from the stores in the upcoming weeks.

As always, your feedback and thoughts matter to us, so let us know what you think of these new designs, and how we may improve them for you!

Best Case: How Toornament supported the Quakecon 2018

The Quakecon is a huge LAN party happening every year, with thousands of players and even more visitors. For an event of this scale to run smoothly, everything must be prepared and handled with care, and that’s why Quakecon called upon Toornament expertise and experience to help them. Our knowledge and resources were geared towards the BYOC events, both the Battle of the BYOC semi-professional tournaments and the BYOC Community Tournaments held by the LAN players during the convention.


To achieve this, we set up several online consulting sessions with the Quakecon staff, and then sent our experts on site, to help both the Quakecon Staff and the Community. In parallel, we developed a new feature: the Toornament Playlist, that stemmed from their need to have a single display of all of their community tournaments. We also created specific guides and content for the players that would be at the convention.

The Toornament TV was also used extensively over the course of the event, to share results and relevant information about the tournaments to all people present.

We want to thank Quakecon for their trust, and congratulations for the great event, can’t wait to be next year for the Quakecon 2019!

Meet the Partner: Tampa Esports

This week, we meet with James, from Tampa Bay, FL in the USA. He founded an esports organization that keeps growing, and joined the ranks of Toornament Partners a while back:

To start, please introduce yourself and your project

I am the founder of Tampa eSports, we host offline LAN tournaments here in Tampa Bay, Florida for the past 5 years. Our events have grown to about 200 PC’s / 300+ attendees over the weekend, and we’re adding in consoles etc. We are just now working Online tournaments into our equation as qualifiers for future offline events etc, which will be hosted on Toornament.

How did you discover Toornament?

We discovered Toornament through a CS:GO partner we worked with, because of the integration with eBot. The platform is very clean and intuitive which allows us to spend less time managing players and more time managing our events.

What feature(s) do you like the most on Toornament?

Our favorite feature is by far the eBot integration as it allows us to streamline our event (16-24 teams on LAN) tremendously.

Anything you want to add?

I just want to thank you all at Toornament for the great platform, and everyone else for supporting eSports the way they have in the past few years especially. It makes all the countless hours worthwhile to see something that we’ve treated as a passion project bloom into such a “main stream” industry that gives life to an entire new world of possibilities. Thank you.

Thank you James for your time and keep up the great work! To learn more about the Toornament Partnership Program, head HERE!

Let Toornament automatically accept registrations in your tournament

You are organizing a tournament, open to all? You don’t want to have to manually accept registrations, and let the system handle that part? It is now possible on Toornament thanks to a new option available in the Registration Settings menu:

This option will automatically validate all registrations in your tournament, in order of creation date, and up to the tournament size limit. Future participants will have the very same experience, it’s just that the validation of their registration (and the email that comes with it) will arrive immediately, instead of after a manual action from you.

If you wish to learn more about the specifics of this new feature, how it works and behaves in certain situations:

Registrations can now be edited by participants!

Organizers and participants alike, we have a new update coming to the platform today, that will make your lives easier!

The options offered to you depend on the status of your registration, and you can learn more about it in the
