Clash Royale Ranking powered by Toornament

Our friends at Millenium came up with a great new use of the Toornament API by creating a whole new system to generate a Clash Royale Ranking throughout all of their tournaments.
By importing a Toornament ID into the system, it automatically isolates french players (as the Ranking is for national players only), attributes them points depending on their tournament position and the tier of the tournament, and updates their ranking accordingly.

It also accepts manual entry, but the core system is built upon automated data gathered with the Toornament API, with tournaments divided into tiers:

One more example that you can create amazing tools with our API (see the Developer Documentation), and there are many other ways Toornament can help you improve your Event Production!

UseCase: Quakecon 2017

In the end of August was held in Texas the latest edition of the iconic event for all Quake fans, the Quakecon. The event boasted Professional and Community Events, in the form of the Quake World Championship (Duel and Sacrifice) and BYOC LAN Tournaments.
Toornament.com was the Technical Partner of the event, and we are going to see how did the organizers benefit from our features, and how we could allow them to create the best event for their needs.

The first step was to provide a clear and complete registration process to their participants. The idea was to have the participants pre-register on Toornament, and then get definitely validated on site.
Their LAN information (row, seat etc.) were then added to all the information they already provided through the Custom Fields, like their in-game IDs or email addresses.

Admins checking Participants in

Another tall order was that the tournaments were featuring many different formats and structures. One of them was a challenging Free-for-All custom format for the Road Rage tournament.
This format was made possible thanks to some of our advanced features, and a few tricks to allow for more versatility within standard structures. If you wish to learn more about it, see how to create your own FFA tournament.

The FFA format used for the Road Rage Tournament

There was also the question of making all information and results about the ongoing competitions available to everyone on site. To that end, they used the Toornament TV, our sharing TV Module, to display all live results, brackets and tournament information on a huge screen:

Quakecon Toornament TV on site

How would participants report their scores, and advance forward?
To ease up Admins’ lives, Participants could use Toornament to report their match results after each game (either through the website, or the Mobile Application):

Admins reminding participants they would report their results through Toornament

Before the competitions started, The Quakecon media staff sent our dynamic Widgets to their press partners. Thanks to the Widgets, they could communicate on the event, its results and stories, as can be seen here on Millenium:

Millenium coverage of the Quakecon thanks to Toornament widgets

And to conclude, we’ll give Aaron “Kuffs” Tygart (Head Admin of the BYOC Competitions) the floor:
We can tell that Toornament contributed to the success of our event by simplifying interactions between admins and players. We hosted 9 BYOC competitions at Quakecon 2017 and we learned very quickly how to benefit the most of the platform: registration process, sharing modules with a gigantic Toornament TV visible by everyone and super easy score reporting process by the players.

How can Toornament improve your event production?

A few weeks back was hosted the ESWC Summer, in Bordeaux, France. There, hundreds of participants and thousands of enthusiasts gathered for 2 days of intense competitive gaming action.
For this new edition, the ESWC once more trusted Toornament for its competition management, using the platform from registrations to result reporting on site, and as the main tool at the heart of their production line, with a Live Website and a streamlined video production, for both online and offline assets.
Let’s see how they used Toornament to create this new live environment!

UseCase: ESWC Summer 2017

If you do not have seen it yet, we highly recommend you take a good look and read at the Event Production showcase we did with the ESWC Summer. We have met with Sylvain Maillard to discuss his new toolbox and the whole process.

Please introduce yourself and the ESWC in a few words

Hello Toornament.com! I work with the ESWC staff since 2006, first as tournament manager and for a short while as content manager. Created in 2003, the ESWC is one of the oldest esports competitions. Today a convention-type event, the ESWC consists of several events a year, where we manage or host video games competitions, notably for publishers. Recently, Winter and Summer events in France featured, among others, international tournaments of Call of Duty, Clash Royale, Street Fighter V or League of Legends.

My work is to organize tournaments during the events, define their formats and schedule, and make sure the communication around the event is good, especially with our gamers’ communities through our numerous supports (website, social networks etc.). I also assist technical teams on content creation to display on live streams.

We have seen your amazing video production, what were the needs leading to the creation of these tools?

One of 2017 goals for the ESWC was to improve the spectators’ experience and the tournaments information we could offer both on our website and the live streams. Indeed, fans are more and more eager for data about the participants of the tournaments, with personal information and their previous performances, or detailed statistics. We had to offer this content on tournaments with lots of participants and results, and it had to remain possible for the teams to manage it during a live event.

We were already using Toornament.com to handle participants registrations and the results reporting. But the additional data we then displayed on our streams were created with imported data from Toornament.com or hand-gathered and compiled within sheets that were then read by our streaming tools. This didn’t allow good reaction times during a live event and was a lot of extra work to update the visual assets. We were looking for a solution to have a unique and automatized source to display on all supports.

What technology are you using? What challenges appeared and how did you tackle them?

The API from Toornament.com has been the cornerstone of our new display system, both for the ESWC website and the visual assets of the live streams. With calls to the API, data to be displayed are automatically gathered with PHP Scripts that autonomously build a webpage ready to be shown on stream. We also created a small web interface that would have all of the available assets for all parts of the competition, available with a single click.

This system notably allows the video productor and his assistants not to bother with updating the visual assets to be displayed on screen. All they have to do is select the needed page, depending on what information about the tournament they need to display.

The main challenge was to create and prepare all those assets beforehand. For the Clash Royale tournament for example, added to the participants and matches displays, no less than 4 assets were necessary for the Final Bracket, depending on what you wanted to display (Full Bracket, Winner Bracket, Loser Bracket and Top-8). This was made with HTML/PHP and had to be ready long before the event, with details tailored for each tournament and discipline.

What is, for you, the next step in this project’s evolution?

The ESWC Summer has been a great feedback on the experience of this new system. We still have work to do, on the assets list interface for example, to further improve our efficiency during the events.
We also need to work on the automatization of bracket displays for a tournament. Optimisation of the visual assets on the webpages is also a wide subject, as they sometimes heavily drew on our Stream PC’s resources.
For the Version.2 of the
Live Mod of the ESWC website, we need to be able to display the results in a structured view, for groups and brackets both, and not just a list of matches. This will ensure a better understanding of the progress of the tournament for the spectators.

What new feature would you like to see added to Toornament?

We expect the Toornament.com API to allow us to fetch the detailed game-related statistics it gathers from the official game’s API, like in League of Legends or DOTA2 for example.
Also, the more information about the tournaments are available through the API (both to read and write), the better for us, as it will enable a wide range of tools and displays about the tournament and its participants!

We would like to thank Sylvain for his time, to showcase and present his tools, and answer our questions.
As for the last one, detailed statistics have been disabled on Toornament since the release of the new version, but they are bound to come back really soon, and all these data will be available through our API, just like the rest, so expect an even better experience for the next ESWC event!
