[Organizers] Why it matters to (full)fill your tournament with information

As we’re always diving in our statistics, we’ve come to realize that a decent part of the thousands of tournaments created on our platform are not entirely filled with the proper datas and infos.
Many factors leads to this situation: lack of time, too many things to handle during the event, lack of knowledge about the possible features…Numbers show us that better data-filled a tournaments lead to better experience (before, during and after) for the competitors and the audience alike.

[Organizers] Tip: What are the different placement methods?

You have three methods to place your participants in your tournament:

Participant number:
Toornament will optimize the placement with the participant number used as seed. This method has more options according to the stage type and order (group, or bracket, first or second stage).

Random:
As the name suggest.

Manual:
Don’t forget, you can manually place each participant by clicking on the desired slot, directly in the bracket or group.

And at any time you can reset your placement to start again from a blank page.
