In the new version of Toornament, there is a distinction to be made between the Anticipated Size of your tournament, and its number of participants.
You can change both, but they’re not the same thing.
Great news for all of you CS:GO tournament organizers: leading CS:GO admin tool eBot now supports Toornament!
This partnership is made with productive organizers in mind, as it will allow them to both automate match management and retrieve results and rich statistics!
We’re happy to report that Toornament now fully supports League Of Legends Tournament Codes!
These codes will help you tremendously by putting your participants in the right lobbies and automatically retrieve scores from their games and results for their matches. Here’s how it works:
but the code, results and stats will still work.
You know the golden rule for a tournament organizer: s**t happens and sometimes, some of your participants can’t show up for some reason.
This may lead to some tricky situations where there are too many seeds for the available slots. How do you deal with this issue?
Let’s see with this case: My 16 slots tournament is full with registrations and ready to start. But at the last minute, 4 teams can’t make it: “Payload Warriors”, “Soul D.Va”, “Sacrilege” and “Apac Apex” won’t show up .
How to deal with this in terms of placement and seeding? The goal here is to re-generate your tournament’s structure with all the other participants.
Here’s our easy method:
The first thing to do is to move the no-show teams to the lowest seedings.
In your Participants’ tab, go to “Edit All” and attribute the lowest seeds to the no-show teams.
Then, give their seeds to the other teams.
At the end of your switch, all the present teams will be seeded from #1 to #12, while the no-show teams will be seeded from #13 to #16.
Now, go in your structure tab and choose “Change”. You can now repick a structure.
Change the tournament size from 16 to 12. Generate the structure.
In your Placement Tab, a warning message will pop on top of the screen, reminding you that there are more participants (16) than available slots (12).
Don’t mind and place your participants 🙂
You’re done! A green message will confirm your placement.
The 16 registered teams are still there, but the tournament has only seeded the 12 first and you competition can start. We’ll streamline this process in a later update!
