Organizer API v.2 and new Disciplines

Huge news for our fellow organizers that are also developers, our new version of the API just got a lot of its missing endpoints in the Organizer scope!

You are now able to perform actions on your tournaments, such as creating a new one, retrieving all of your tournaments, editing their general settings and even deleting them!

Along with these tournament endpoints, Matches and Participants also have their endpoints in the API v.2!

See our API Documentation for all useful information about this tool for you to use our Toornament technology on your website, to improve your event production! If you would like to build amazing things with our API, request an access by sending an email to our Contact!

On another note, we also updated our list of available disciplines, by adding a bunch of new (and older) ones:

Mario Tennis Aces
Ironsight
The Crew 2
World of Warcraft
Cuisine Royale
Wreckfest
MotoGP 18
MXGP Pro
Fractured Lands

Tooltips & New Settings

Following our Dashboard Update, we keep on improving our organizers’ experience with the platform with these two new quality-of-life updates:

Tooltips

Help messages are now integrated into the platform, for a better readability, without being in the way of more advanced users.

Pay attention, some of them have links inside to learn more about advanced features!

New Settings

Just like how we gathered all relevant information about the tournament status on a single interactive Dashboard, all settings are now accessible from a single page, much clearer and design than the unfolding menu:

Blocks may appear or disappear depending on the discipline, and will be greyed out if you do not have the permission to use them.

These are soon to be followed by other improvements, especially in the Participant (registration process update) and Developer (Organizer API v.2) domains! Stay tuned!

Here is your new Organizer Dashboard

You do remember our old dashboard, with its cards and icons?
You can now kiss it goodbye, as we release a brand new dashboard, made to guide you through your whole tournament process:

Blocks are now evolving as your tournament progress, displaying relevant information during the setup and running phases, such as the registrations, participants, stages, matches etc.

As usual, it’s bound to get improved further, so don’t hesitate telling us what you think about it, and if you want to share your feedback about other features, our Feedback Form is still up!

Organize your tournaments in peace thanks to our GDPR update!

As you may have noticed these past weeks, new General Data Protection Regulation have come into effect in Europe. As we have always taken privacy very seriously, it did not change much on the platform: we have always only asked for the necessary data we need to provide you with the services (basically, an email address, all the rest is optional), we do not track our users, we do not sell your data, there are no ads or monetization of your data etc.
Though, it still caused a few changes on the platform, and here they are:

First, we have updated our Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. We recommend you take the time to read those at least once.

If you have any question on these matters, a new contact email address is now available: privacy@toornament.com
You will also notice the apparition of a “Report Abuse” link or button on several pages. This will allow you to report any abuse you might encounter on the platform, through another email contact: abuse@toornament.com.

In addition, organizers have now the possibility to add their own Custom Terms of Use to tournaments they organize, that participants will have to accept along those of Toornament when registering to a tournament. Please note that these Custom Terms of Use shall comply with our Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy.

Finally, you may now delete your Toornament account easily from Your Account if you no longer have a use for the service, or any other reason.

All in all, it means that by using Toornament, you are GDPR compliant, and can keep organizing your tournaments with peace of mind!

Toornament Feedback: Summer Edition

It’s time for us to gather another round of great feedback from our community!
We have a lot of things planned for the second half of 2018, with new features, and especially improvements for existing ones, but we want you to tell us what you think should be given top priority!

As of now, we are hard at work on adding some of the missing endpoints for the API and a revamp of the Organizer Dashboard general view to help organizers keep track of what is going on in their tournaments.

But as for what comes next, that is where YOU come into play. Simply answer a short questionnaire about current and upcoming features to let us know your thoughts and feedback about them all!

Free-for-All and Racing Games

Get behind the wheel and win! Remember our FFA Update? It’s been proven that it works wonders for all Battle Royale games and the likes of them, but what’s less known is that these new formats and structures are also perfect for all of you, Racing Sim fans out there!

Whether you are a Trackmania, Mario Kart, Formula 1 or any other racing game fan, there is a Structure for you!
Check these tournaments using Toornament new FFA features:

F1 Esports Series 2017

This competition followed a standardized F1 ruleset (except one of the races had basically double the points). Three races, points earned after each race depending on the position and a final standing to determine the winner:

Zrt Trackmania Cup 2017

The french community-favorite Trackmania competition is back this year, and here is last year final stage, with two semi-finals and a grand final.

The platform is fully ready to welcome you and your epic racing competitions, so no time to lose:

Beyond the Void now on Toornament!

Beyond the Void is a new fast-paced game available in early access for free on Steam. It is an original mix of RTS and MOBA, blending strategy, action and competition in a 1 vs 1 space setting where you play the captain of a spaceship with a mission: destroying your enemy’s mother-planet. To achieve that, you will develop your fleet by collecting a rare resource called Ambrosium and conquering new planets.

beyond the void

It is a game with challenging PvP features and that’s why it is now available on Toornament: so that the community has the opportunity to participate in competitions, just like Xoza1n who won the Ambro Cup #2, second edition of the monthly series!
So if you want to test your skill and abilities, register for the next Ambro Cup taking place on Sunday 17th June. Here are the details:

«Toornament is the platform that our community recommended to us. I personally often used it for tournaments I entered on different games and I find it easy to take in hand, both as a player or as an organizer. It makes it possible for the community to create its own tournament and, for us, to support them. It also offers a large set of tools for the communication around the tournament.»
Etienne, Beyond the Void Community Manager

Welcome to Beyond the Void and its community, we hope you will have a blast playing this game competitively!

What to expect with our next update?

Fellow organizers, now your watch is ended, the Free-for-all structure is headed your way, as the headline of a massive update. To achieve this, we had to rethink a large part of the match system, and took the opportunity to bring some other quality of life improvements along the way!

New match format system

formats
First of all, we have redesigned the match formats, leaving the fixed list of available formats, to allow you to customize every aspect of your match, be it a best-of or a set number of games (like in the FFA).
Plus, each format now comes with a wide array of options, from the number of games to advanced settings for the most advanced one, allowing you to design your matches as you will.

Automated result & score calculation

Thanks to the new match formats, we have been able to develop a much awaited feature, automated calculation of result and score! It means that when selecting your match format, you may opt for a score or result-based calculation!

You will for example be able to only enter game scores, and all the rest will be automatic, the game results will give a Winner status to the highest score, and will automatically get conveyed over to the match level.

The Free-for-all Structure

With all of the stepping stones firmly in place, the Free-for-all new Structure, soberly called “Simple”, is now available! It makes good use of all of the previous improvements and new features to make organizing Battle Royale tournaments a breeze! First, a new match sheet, with reorganized content and a new interface to accommodate the hundred players that can do a Battle Royale match at once!

As you may see, the calculations are present, and you will just have to set the in-game rank and kills of a participant for the system to determine his total score, and rank him accordingly! And if you play several games, it all adds up to give the final standing!
And along comes the public version of the page, for everyone to follow and see the results of a Battle Royale game!

Double Elimination Grand Finals

Another highly requested feature is coming your way with this update, the double elimination Grand Finals Reset! You may now choose a Double Finals setting when creating a Double Elimination bracket, and this will automatically generate or remove the reset depending on the results of the first match of the grand finals, whether the Upper Bracker participant wins, or the Lower Bracket one!

With all these improvements and new features, we assure our position as the best platform to organize your competitions, and there is no way we stop here, and have plenty new things headed your way in the future!

Search tournaments by Platform

With the Platform Information added a few months back, we now have a nice pool of tournaments that display the new information, and it is time to allow you to search your tournaments based on Platform preference!
When searching for a tournament to participate in, you may now select a game and look for a name, but also filter on a platform-basis:

Furthermore, the platform information is now displayed directly on the tournament results, by the game’s name:

As usual, let us know what you think of this new feature, and as you enjoy it, we get back to working on the Free-for-All structures!
