Meet the Partner: Krosmoz Tournaments Arena

The Toornament Partner we are about to present today has made great use of our API to build his own competitive environment on top of the Toornament engine.

To start, please introduce yourself and your project

I’m Alain “Midl” R, founder & co-Director of the Krosmoz Tournaments Arena (aka KTA), a season-based League for the game Dofus, composed of multiple qualifier tournaments followed by a Main Event tournament. We are currently in our third season.
Our ambition is to make our league the main community event for the game.

To do so, we’ve created a website, KT Arena , that reunites our community and uses the Toornament API to display our tournaments.
We also built a League Points system, based on the final rankings of each and every qualifiers, that allows us to have overall leaderboards during a season.

How did you discover Toornament?

I have created several tournaments for the game Krosmaga, and have tested multiple tournament platforms to do so. In the end, Toornament was the one I have been the most interested in, and that allowed us to build exactly what we had envisioned.
The customizable Toornament TV was one of the features that really caught my eye. With my former crew, we had fun doing stuffs with it:

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

I guess it iss the fact that I’m able to do really complex, yet fun, stuff with the tournament structures. My dream is to organize a tournament that begins with a Swiss System that qualifies for Double-Elimination Bracket Groups, followed by a Robin Robin that qualifies players towards the Single-Elimination Playoffs; and thanks to Toornament, we have been able to do such a tournament during our first season!

Anything you want to add?

I’m pretty sure that Toornament and environments like that is the future for the community made esports.

And we are sure that communities are what really drive esports, and are glad to provide a tool for these communities to exist and grow. Take a look at the Toornament API Documentation if you would like to start building a great project like what the KTA folks did, and do contact us by email at contact@toornament.com if you have questions or inquiries about such projects that we might help you with!

A big thank you to Midl and his staff for their incredible work, and the time dedicated to answering our questions. We are glad and proud to be the esports technology chosen by communities and game publishers (see the Rainbow Six French League for Ubisoft), to let them build new solutions to improve the players’ experience!

Summer Battle Royale Recollection

This summer was rife with great Battle Royale competitions, and we have covered most of them, thanks to our FFA stages.
If you happened to have missed some of them, here are the detailed results of the main tournaments that were played over the summer:

Fortnite World Cup 2019

First off, the Fortnite World Cup was held early August with 4 separate competitions:

Not to spoil the results, but let’s say they were not exactly what we’d expect!
Catch up on the competition, and if the format is renewed, prepare for next year’s World Cup, and a chance to grab the lion’s share of the cash prize!
Organizers, create your own tournament with the same rules as the World Cup thanks to our Fortnite Guide for Organizers!

PUBG Nations Cup

First off, the Nations Cup for PUBG, where country teams fought off in an extended 15-games match (click for detailed results) to determine the best country of all:

In the end, Russia took the title, closely followed by South Korea, with Canada seizing the last podium place.
A tense and intense competition, which saw many epic moments and comebacks! If you wish to create your own, follow our PUBG Guide for Organizers!

Apex EXP Invitational

Part of the first Preseason of competitive Apex, this tournament pit invited teams against one another for a hefty cash prize, and renown going into the very first Apex Competitive Circuit.
Team SoloMid finally got out first after the 12 games (click for detailed results), but the other teams will have another chance to shine and dethrone them during the Preseason Invitational that’s to be held in Krakow mid-September.

Again, if you are a tournament organizer yourself, and would like to replicate the competition for your own community, we have the Apex Guide for Organizers!

See you on Toornament, be it to follow the next big Battle Royale tournament, or for your own!

Use Case: Empowering the new Rainbow Six League for Ubisoft

Toornament is proud to be powering the new Rainbow Six: Siege French League, with a brand new R6FL official website especially designed for the occasion. The website provides all the information about the competition, from schedule to results, with teams and news in between, and it’s all seamlessly integrated and automated thanks to the Toornament technology:

Having Toornament as the foundation of the platform also allows for an easy sharing of the tournament information outside of the official website, with our Widgets. They can be used by media websites to easily display up-to-date information to fans, as part of a global coverage strategy to improve the tournament reach:

It is an honor and pleasure to kick off this new partnership with Ubisoft, to make the esport experience better for everyone involved, with hopefully much more to come!

Want to play some FIFA and take on a pro player?

FIFA has always been a top game on Toornament, and its community one of the most active on the platform. So it’s only fair that we put the spotlight on these amazing organizers from time to time, and there is also a great opportunity for our German friends that currently under way with the Charcoal Cup, that can be summarized in a few words:

  • German tournament with 4 qualifiers open to all 16+ residents, that will send 8 finalists to the Museum Soccer in Dortmund
  • Prizes for all finalists, and the winner will take on Proownez for a chance to win better rewards if he wins a series of skill-based duels including FIFA
  • Fun activities and meet&greets organized for all those who will attend, and a complete Livestream of the competition for those who can’t

The Charcoal Cup tournament is not affiliated with or sponsored by Electronic Arts Inc. or its licensors.

The Soccer Museum, with indoor soccer court and other installations

Find all information on the Charcoal Cup Website, and if the registrations for the first qualifier are over, you can still try your skill in the next three:

For those of you who are not in Germany, or did not make it through the qualifiers, we have plenty of other tournaments to hone your FIFA skills, and compete against the world:

APEX Legends – The latest Battle Royale sensation!

It is hard to believe you would not have heard about Apex Legends, but just in case, it is the latest Battle Royale released by Electronic Arts and developed by Respawn, the creators of the Titanfall series. It’s fast-paced, brutal and seems to have understood everything a Battle Royale must be and do to succeed.

The post-launch numbers are quite eloquent:

Apex Stats

And the first weekend saw a peak concurrent players at more than 2 Million players, and almost 500,000 viewers on Twitch. Needless to say, the launch has been a huge success, and we felt it on Toornament too, with a lot of Apex Legends Tournaments created since the release of the game!

Official tournaments have also started, with the first Twitch Rivals on Apex Legends having been held earlier this month, with European and North American teams challenging each other to a points race during an evening:

So if you want to join the hype train, gather two of your friends and drop in King’s Canyon with your powers and weapons to claim the victory! And if you have the soul of an organizer, we have the perfect guide to help you organize your Apex Legends tournament!

Case Study: French League of Legends official league powered by Toornament!

Riot Games’ LOL French League (LFL in short), the French national League of Legends tournament starts today, and the competition is to be organized entirely on Toornament.com!
That is incredible news already, but there is more!
We teamed up with Riot Games to build the LFL website, based on our API, to make sure it makes the most out of our solution!

The LFL Website is a portal for all fans to follow the competition:

LFL Home

It of course has all matches, with results updated automatically and spoiler tags, and rankings:

LFL Results

There is also a Teams section, with details about each team, their next matches and past results:

It is a pleasure to have been chosen as the official solution by Riot Games for their French Official League.

Use Case: Riot Games organizes the French Collegiate League with Toornament!

Riot Games is launching La Grosse Ligue (the Big League), the French League of Legends Collegiate League.
The League is built around the 12 French regions, with three tournaments per region, where teams are seeded based on their in-game rank. Each of the three Tiers (Baron, Dragon and Herald) boasts a different structure, that also depends on the number of participating teams in the region.

Here are all of the Grosse Ligue tournaments:

To accomplish this, Riot Games chose to trust Toornament for our wide array of structures, and flexibility of our points system to accommodate their specific rules. We built a custom registration tool for teams to apply and provide scholarship certification, and more than 500 teams across the country answered the call. The teams were then imported in their respective tournaments using the Toornament API.

Thanks to the integration with the League of Legends Tournament Codes, the matches can now be played seamlessly by the players, with results automatically reported to the platform.

Our goal at Riot Games France is to create local solutions that resonate with the French audience, and given France’s complex tertiary educational system, we needed to create a highly modular and flexible tournament system to answer those needs. We entered into the production stage with some trepidation, as we believed that implementing the format was not something that was easy to solve.
However, Toornament was able to provide the perfect product that we were looking for to create an amazing tournament experience for French university students.

– Howon Lee, Esports Lead at Riot Games

The first matches were held on the 7th of November, and the League is bound to last several weeks, where the competition will move to the national level, with the best teams competing for prizes against the best teams from the other regions.

Here is the trailer for the competition:

Find all results on Toornament, and on the Grosse Ligue official website!

Use Case: PSG Esports International ’18 Coverage Page

The PSG.LGD team came to us with a simple, yet challenging task: they needed a way to feature their sponsors during the International 2018.
We offered to create for them a One-Page to gather all relevant information about the team and their performance in the tournament, all while showcasing their sponsors.

The PSG.LGD TI2018 Coverage Page was made possible thanks to our coverage of the competition and the Toornament API, which allowed for the full automation of the page to avoid mistakes and delays:
