The Quakecon is a huge LAN party happening every year, with thousands of players and even more visitors. For an event of this scale to run smoothly, everything must be prepared and handled with care, and that’s why Quakecon called upon Toornament expertise and experience to help them. Our knowledge and resources were geared towards the BYOC events, both the Battle of the BYOC semi-professional tournaments and the BYOC Community Tournaments held by the LAN players during the convention.
To achieve this, we set up several online consulting sessions with the Quakecon staff, and then sent our experts on site, to help both the Quakecon Staff and the Community. In parallel, we developed a new feature: the Toornament Playlist, that stemmed from their need to have a single display of all of their community tournaments. We also created specific guides and content for the players that would be at the convention.
The Toornament TV was also used extensively over the course of the event, to share results and relevant information about the tournaments to all people present.
We want to thank Quakecon for their trust, and congratulations for the great event, can’t wait to be next year for the Quakecon 2019!

This week, we meet with James, from Tampa Bay, FL in the USA. He founded an esports organization that keeps growing, and joined the ranks of Toornament Partners a while back:
To start, please introduce yourself and your project
I am the founder of Tampa eSports, we host offline LAN tournaments here in Tampa Bay, Florida for the past 5 years. Our events have grown to about 200 PC’s / 300+ attendees over the weekend, and we’re adding in consoles etc. We are just now working Online tournaments into our equation as qualifiers for future offline events etc, which will be hosted on Toornament.
How did you discover Toornament?
We discovered Toornament through a CS:GO partner we worked with, because of the integration with eBot. The platform is very clean and intuitive which allows us to spend less time managing players and more time managing our events.
What feature(s) do you like the most on Toornament?
Our favorite feature is by far the eBot integration as it allows us to streamline our event (16-24 teams on LAN) tremendously.
Anything you want to add?
I just want to thank you all at Toornament for the great platform, and everyone else for supporting eSports the way they have in the past few years especially. It makes all the countless hours worthwhile to see something that we’ve treated as a passion project bloom into such a “main stream” industry that gives life to an entire new world of possibilities. Thank you.
Thank you James for your time and keep up the great work! To learn more about the Toornament Partnership Program, head HERE!
