The Free-for-All is here!

After months of hard work, we are finally ready to unveil our new update, containing everything you need to organize and participate in competitions for your favorite Battle Royale games. After our teaser from last week, we have the pleasure to announce that all planned features are now available on the platform!

If you wish to create a great Battle Royale tournament, like the LeStream Show Barrière, search no more, we have all you need!

Come and discover the brand new FFA-tailored structure, that can handle up to 100 players per match, with points and ranks automatically calculated!

More Details

Having the structure is good, but there is more to it! There are New Match Formats & Automated Calculations to make our organizers’ life even easier!

Last, but not least, this update also comes with the possibility to setup your Double Elimination Bracket grand finals the way you see fit, with or without reset!

More Details

All of these confirm that Toornament remains at the forefront of innovation when it comes to creating and managing the best esports competitions out there!

Check our detailed guides on how to create a tournament for your favorite game!

This new format allows you to create your Battle Royale tournaments, but also any other free-for-all format, like Racing Sims or FPS Deathmatches, as long as participants earn points for each game/race!

What to expect with our next update?

Fellow organizers, now your watch is ended, the Free-for-all structure is headed your way, as the headline of a massive update. To achieve this, we had to rethink a large part of the match system, and took the opportunity to bring some other quality of life improvements along the way!

New match format system

First of all, we have redesigned the match formats, leaving the fixed list of available formats, to allow you to customize every aspect of your match, be it a best-of or a set number of games (like in the FFA).
Plus, each format now comes with a wide array of options, from the number of games to advanced settings for the most advanced one, allowing you to design your matches as you will.

Automated result & score calculation

Thanks to the new match formats, we have been able to develop a much awaited feature, automated calculation of result and score! It means that when selecting your match format, you may opt for a score or result-based calculation!

You will for example be able to only enter game scores, and all the rest will be automatic, the game results will give a Winner status to the highest score, and will automatically get conveyed over to the match level.

The Free-for-all Structure

With all of the stepping stones firmly in place, the Free-for-all new Structure, soberly called “Simple”, is now available! It makes good use of all of the previous improvements and new features to make organizing Battle Royale tournaments a breeze! First, a new match sheet, with reorganized content and a new interface to accommodate the hundred players that can do a Battle Royale match at once!

As you may see, the calculations are present, and you will just have to set the in-game rank and kills of a participant for the system to determine his total score, and rank him accordingly! And if you play several games, it all adds up to give the final standing!
And along comes the public version of the page, for everyone to follow and see the results of a Battle Royale game!

Double Elimination Grand Finals

Another highly requested feature is coming your way with this update, the double elimination Grand Finals Reset! You may now choose a Double Finals setting when creating a Double Elimination bracket, and this will automatically generate or remove the reset depending on the results of the first match of the grand finals, whether the Upper Bracker participant wins, or the Lower Bracket one!

With all these improvements and new features, we assure our position as the best platform to organize your competitions, and there is no way we stop here, and have plenty new things headed your way in the future!

Will Battle Royale generalize competitive gaming?

Let’s start by stating the obvious, the Battle Royale genre is, and has been for a year or so, the go-to trend everyone wants a piece of. Successful titles (do Fortnite and PUBG ring any bell?), viewership records, there is no shortage of superlatives or in-depth analyses to make sure you talk about the (current) golden boy of video games.
But let’s take a different approach, and see what can the Battle Royales really bring to the table, apart from entertainment and numbers in the millions, not that it would not be enough, but we are sure there is more to it!

Indeed, those games came with their own revolution for competitive gaming and esports, especially with the new formats they brought along. Grand scale battles were previously a prerogative of large-scale shooters such as Battlefield or Planetside, with large groups of players fighting in battles ranging from sixty-four to several hundred players at a time. If competitiveness was without a doubt present, there was not much room for structured competition. That changed when the Battle Royales started pitting a hundred players against one another, with all but a single goal to reach, be the last man standing (or prone, we are not judging!).

The Free-For-all is no innovation, games like Quake or Unreal Tournament were very used to it, and had a vivid competitive scene, arguably kickstarting esports. But the real change that Battle Royales bring is one step above, not at the match structure (it’s just a matter of scale, even though it’s linked), but at the tournament level. Indeed, in the past, when you wanted to organize a 64-players tournament, you had to select a structure. Will it be Round-Robin followed by a Bracket? Or maybe just a huge Double-Elimination Bracket? What about Swiss Stages, Leagues and the mix of all of those? For a player, the huge deal was also that you could get eliminated pretty early on, leaving you with nothing but your eyes to cry and watch your defiler carrying on. As a spectator, some structures were, puzzling, to say the least, and to this day, some tournaments are organized with structures that require you to have a PhD. in esports to understand…
In a Battle Royale, if you want to organize a 64-players tournament, well, it’s easy enough, you just play N matches, cumulate points from those matches, and just like that, you have your tournament, ranking and winner! It’s easy for players, it’s perfect for viewers, as it’s almost 100% gameplay, with a few minutes needed between each match to start the next one.

All of this generates a great commitment because everyone gets to play all games (unless of course, they are quitters when they calculate they mathematically can’t win anymore), and viewers can cheer for their favorite player/team all competition long. Plus, the timeframe and simple structure make those kind of competitions available to all, and saying that, we are eyeing towards streamers who want to set up a fun tournament for their viewers for example…

Add the fact that at the community level, they will usually be solo tournaments, and you have a great recipe for success, as it’s easy to register, fast to set up and players remain involved.
For all of these reasons, it was important for us to provide our community with the right tools to organize such competitions in even better conditions, hence why we have been working hard to make sure the platform would be ready by the time the games allow everyone to organize their own tournament, and it’s close… real close!
