Meet the Partner: Situational Awareness

As teased in our Partner Program, it is time to start shining light on our Partner Organizers with this new article series “Meet the Partner”.

First in line is Naim, a Moroccan organizer passionate about flight combat simulation, that created and manages a great community dedicated to his favorite games, because we believe, just like he does, that there’s more to esports than just MOBA, Card Games and FPS!

To start, please introduce yourself and your project

My name is Naim Bouyahya, 40 years of age from Morocco. I have been stoked about military jets and the art of air combat for as long as I can remember. When I stumbled upon my first simulator, it was an instant buy. A few years later, I decided to launch my website (SA-SIM.COM) to organize online PvP competitions for the acclaimed Digital Combat Simulator (DCS).
I’m an avid competitor and truly passionate about e-sports so I wanted to contribute to introducing DCS to a wider audience. I really believe it holds tremendous potential to be as successful as current mainstream titles such as Battle Grounds and Overwatch.

How did you discover Toornament?

I tried many brackets providers and had not been really satisfied until I came across Toornament, which intuitive interface and handy features make it stand out from the competition.
Discovering Toornament was through watching events on Twitch where I noticed it being used in many major professional leagues.

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

All the feature are great, really. It’s straightforward to set up a tourney and all the widgets make it very easy to share the brackets wherever needed. It also looks neat as you can add country flags, team logos…etc – tiny details like that are really important to those who want their tournaments to have that extra touch and professional feel.
Check one of their tournaments!

Anything you want to add?

I hope Toornament will feature DCS one day, I’m a big believer in e-sports and quality games like DCS deserve to be in the spotlight.

We want to thank Naim for the time he has taken to answer our questions, and have the pleasure to announce that DCS will very soon be a discipline available on Toornament!

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.
