Toornament already allows you to associate streams to your tournaments and matches. The new update, released today, adds the possibility to associate VOD for every matches of your tournament.
To achieve this, go to your dashboard, select one of your tournaments. Then choose a match in the Matches section and click on the VOD tab. You are now able to fill all the videos for this match. The widget’s match page will display a new VOD section with the videos.
If the video service provider is Youtube, Twitch or Dailymotion, it will display the video’s image preview. Discover the VOD functionality in the 2014 Global Starcraft II League Code S – Season 1 tournament widget:
This update also provides you two notes fields that you can edit in the match form: private notes which are only visible in the dashboard’s match page, and public notes which are displayed in the dashboard’s and widget’s match page. The public notes came from a feedback of the Copenhagen Games organizers. They are very helpful to provide match information to the participants.

We are pleased to release the biggest update since the launch of Toornament. This update adds a new tournament stage format: Bracket Groups, a new feature to attribute permissions on your tournaments, and some big improvements to use Toornament on your tablet or mobile.
We developed the Bracket Groups stage format in order to let you run dual format, GSL or EVO like tournaments. In a Bracket Group stage, you can define your number of groups; the number of qualified per group like in a traditional round robin group stage; and the bracket type which can be single elimination or double elimination. Toornament will use these parameters to generate your stage:
- A Bracket Groups stage with 32 participants, 8 groups, 2 qualified/group and a “double elimination” bracket type will generate 8 “double elimination” brackets of 4 participants. Each bracket will have no grand final because only the top 2 is qualified. (GSL/Dual format type)
- A Bracket Groups stage with 128 participants, 8 groups, 4 qualified/group and a “single elimination” bracket type will generate 8 “single elimination” brackets of 16 participants. Each bracket will only have 1/8 finals and quarter-finals because only the top 4 is qualified.
Browse the 2014 Global Starcraft II League Code S – Season 1 tournament widget to see it in action:
You are now able to create tournaments with the following structures with Bracket Groups:
- Bracket Groups + Single elimination
- Bracket Groups + Double elimination
- Bracket Groups + Bracket Groups + Single elimination
- Bracket Groups + Bracket Groups + Double elimination
You can now attribute permissions to your tournaments. For example to give rights to your referees to report results on a specific tournament. We created 5 different permissions:
- Administrate the tournament : Edit the tournament’s settings, manage the structure
- Manage the participants : Import and edit participants
- Place the participants
- Report the results : List and edit matches
- Change the permissions
We did a lot of improvements on the Toornament dashboard design in order to provide an optimal viewing experience on tablet and mobile. You are now able to manage your tournament easily through a tablet.
We extended the games managed by Toornament with:
- CS 1.6
- CS Source
- COD 4
- Battlefield 3
- Gears of War 3
- Mario Kart

We released a new update for Toornament. This update is focused on the Online Dashboard. We redesigned the navigation, and improved the structure section.
First, we appended a second level on the left side navigation; making it faster to select a stage. Secondly, we moved the action buttons and the dropdown section menu to the right top corner. If you want to configure a stage, close a group, the action buttons are now in this corner. The dropdown menu allows you to select a specific part of your tournament: a group, a round, or the loser bracket of your double elimination stage… Finally, the page’s title is now a clickable breadcrumb.
The structure section has now a comprehensive overview. This page provides you a snapshot of your tournament‘s structure. Each part of your structure is configurable; change the name, specify a match format…
