Following our Dashboard Update, we keep on improving our organizers’ experience with the platform with these two new quality-of-life updates:
Help messages are now integrated into the platform, for a better readability, without being in the way of more advanced users.
Pay attention, some of them have links inside to learn more about advanced features!
Just like how we gathered all relevant information about the tournament status on a single interactive Dashboard, all settings are now accessible from a single page, much clearer and design than the unfolding menu:
Blocks may appear or disappear depending on the discipline, and will be greyed out if you do not have the permission to use them.
These are soon to be followed by other improvements, especially in the Participant (registration process update) and Developer (Organizer API v.2) domains! Stay tuned!
New month, new Open Community tournaments!
Take a minute, check what we have in store, and maybe next week, you’ll be able to refer to yourself as a champion. Note that we have studio-sanctioned tournaments and a Dreamhack this time, with prizes for many of them and the other ones!
This week, we go in France to meet with one of our most loyal organizers, present on the platform since the very beginnings, and who logically joined the Partner Program as soon as we created it.
To start, please introduce yourself and your project
Zilat is a non-profit organizer of Lan Parties and BYOC esport competitions.Created in 2004, our staff has organised more than 30 onsite tournaments in France. Our ambition is to develop the esport events in the north-east of France.
How did you discover Toornament?
The staff of Toornament contacted us many years ago, and we discovered their tool which was already really complete and helped us for all our following tournaments. Today, we can’t expect to organize a tournament without this tool.
What feature(s) do you like the most on Toornament?
We appreciate that the tool can be configured for any type of tournament, we can begin with Swiss rounds, then make a Double Elimination bracket. That capacity to put the results on any websites with the Widgets make this tool really useful for our live communication.I also like the multiple structure possible in a single tournament.
Anything you want to add?
Thank you Toornament for this really complete tool, we hope that all the eSports community will carry on going on all our events (and all the others) to develop eSport very quickly.
Maybe you remember our on-boarding of Beyond the Void a while back? For those of you who missed it, it’s a free-to-play strategic competitive game with ships, lasers and planets. Combination of the Real-Time-Strategy and MOBA genres, the game is quite the unique experience:
As such, we wanted to promote two tournaments held on the game, one for the North American region, the other one for Europe, both organized by Scorpia Partners.
Prizes are to be won in these tournaments, both cash and in-game legendary rewards!
