[Organizers] How to associate streams to your tournament

Toornament allows you to associate streams to your Toornament.

First of all, you have to indicate all your streaming channels. In your dashboard, select a tournament and access to the Settings section. Then, select the stream tab where you will be able to fill the streaming channels.

Toornament goes deeper by allowing you to associate the streaming channels to each match of your tournament. Select a match in the Matches section and then, click on the stream button in the top-right corner. You are now able to select specifically the streaming channels which will broadcast this match.

[Organizers] How placement works

Seeding and Placement is made from a single interface where you can add participants into the phase (because all participants don’t have to start in the first stage of a tournament, or play all stages) with a multi-selection modal window. A seed is then attributed to them depending on the order you picked them.


Selection modal

Note that the modal will see a new Outgoing Participants filter appear in the case of a multi-stages tournament, allowing to only see participants coming out of another phase, in ranking order, to simulate continuity between phases and ease up the process of selecting participants one stage after the other.

Once you’re filled in the seeds and added participants to the stage, you can manually modify the seeds, and it will naturally modify their placement in the structure accordingly, either in the list on the left, or directly inside the preview on the right side of the screen:


Placement interface

You can also lock some of the participants in their attributed seeds. This serves one major purpose: locked seeds won’t change if you randomize the participants into the stage, meaning you can have seeds stay in place while you randomly add participants into the stage. Furthermore, re-generating a stage (by changing its size for example) does not alter the seeds, meaning all seeded participants will keep their seeds, and locked ones will remain locked.


Locked participants

This interface is a preview, meaning you can edit things, try and test things out, but ultimately, nothing changes until you save.


With this new system, it is still possible to manually place each and every participant, either all at once before starting your tournament, or step by step, even after the stage matches have started (but a participant with a result in one of its matches will become locked).

To change the distribution of seeds within a stage (for example, if you want to have a “Seed optimized (Snake)” distribution in your Round-Robin Groups), you have to change the Group Composition in the Structure Advanced Settings, and choose from one of the options available there:
