New tournament creation interface

We want to make the tournament creation and configuration process as quick and easy as possible for our organizers.
To that end, we today update the tournament creation process, by making it a single page with advanced and smart fields, so creating a tournament is faster and easier than ever! Indeed, the suggested games now depend on your own history of tournament creation, so if you are a true fan of a game, you will see it pop first in the list!

That follows the previous update to the Organizer Dashboard which became more user-friendly, to guide you through all stages of your tournament configuration, while putting the important features forward.

Go ahead and try it out, and as always, let us know what you think about it!

New structure widgets are available!

Tournaments organized on Toornament.com all come with a set of Widgets, for organizers to share their tournament information easily on any website.
Until now, available widgets were as follow:

  • Registration
  • Tournament
  • Schedule
  • Stage

We have drastically increased the number of widgets available, by adding all levels of structure to the widgets that you may now use. Indeed, you can now not only display a stage in a widget, but also a group, a round, a match or even a single game!

Group Widget – League of Legends Worlds 2018, Play-In Group Stage

Match Widget – FaceIT Major London 2018 Grand finals

FFA Game Widget – Fortnite Royal Rumble All Stars

These widgets will let you display what you deem the most interesting or important about your tournament, or share individual matches with your press services or other partners
To learn more about these new widgets, and how to use them, see our Widget Guide on the Help Center!

Toornament starts its localization project!

Democratization of esports means that more and more people get into it, and we want to make sure that Toornament, the most advanced technology for esports, is easily available to the majority of esports enthusiasts. This goes through providing an interface in several languages, and thus, we are starting a project to translate our whole environment.

First step will be to make the platform available in these languages:

  • French
  • German
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish

… with many more to come!

To that end, we want to call upon our amazing community’s knowledge, to create a foolproof Glossary of the technical terms used on the platform, so if you want to take part in this project with us, learn more about it in our Help Center article.

Forfeit and New Match Sheet

Matches on Toornament now accept “Forfeit” as a Match Result (in lieu of the usual “Win/Draw/Loss”), to handle the cases where participants are simply not there, or have to forfeit a match for whatever reason:

The option is available through a simple checkbox, in our new match sheet:

We have indeed standardized all match sheets across the website, so that the display is the same on all pages where match details are shown, and it’s now even easier to fill in results, scores and other information!

And to make sure Toornament remains the best tournament engine, the Forfeit has also been added to our advanced Points Attribution System, to let organizers completely configure the way their participants will earn points, or get penalized for their forfeits:

Does the word “Blackout” ring a bell? CoD:BO4, Battlefield V, Soul Calibur VI and more are now available!

Organizers and Participants, to your competitions!

The tournament playlists have been released in beta

We have released one of our latest features in beta for all of our Toornament Organizer Partners to use: the Tournament Playlist.

You may have seen some of these new things around on the blog already, after we developed it for the Quakecon 2018, especially in the Open Community Tournaments articles.
The playlists are available as public pages or via a widget:

This new feature is a step to help our Partners promote and share their tournaments with their community easily, so no participants shall ever miss a tournament by their favorite organizer!

The Toornament platform is now fully responsive

Worldwide mobile usage is on the rise, and Toornament usage is no exception to this. We have recorded a huge increase in the number of users that visit the platform from their mobile device, and as such, the subject has become a priority of ours.
Yes we do have a Mobile App, but its traffic has not seen the same increase, and has been steady for a while, and we therefore opted for an all-responsive web design.

As of today, all of Toornament features are optimized for all devices you may have (just like the Organizer Dashboard has been for a while), from your desktop computer to your mobile phone, with laptops and tablets in between, directly on the website:

responsive

This will allow us to focus on what’s really important: updating the platform, and providing the best esports experience there is. Consequently, the Toornament Mobile App will be withdrawn from the stores in the upcoming weeks.

As always, your feedback and thoughts matter to us, so let us know what you think of these new designs, and how we may improve them for you!

Organizers and Participants, to your competitions!

Let Toornament automatically accept registrations in your tournament

You are organizing a tournament, open to all? You don’t want to have to manually accept registrations, and let the system handle that part? It is now possible on Toornament thanks to a new option available in the Registration Settings menu:

This option will automatically validate all registrations in your tournament, in order of creation date, and up to the tournament size limit. Future participants will have the very same experience, it’s just that the validation of their registration (and the email that comes with it) will arrive immediately, instead of after a manual action from you.

If you wish to learn more about the specifics of this new feature, how it works and behaves in certain situations:

Registrations can now be edited by participants!

Organizers and participants alike, we have a new update coming to the platform today, that will make your lives easier!

The options offered to you depend on the status of your registration, and you can learn more about it in the



We have other improvements coming to the website soon to make the registration process even better, like auto-validation of the registrations, see our Public Roadmap for more information!
