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.

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:

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!

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:

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:
