Krosmaga now has its Pick & Ban!

We are proud to announce that we worked with Ankama to make Toornament the go-to platform for Krosmaga tournament organizers, and are now releasing the Pick & Ban feature!
It’s as simple as it gets, after the tournament organizer enables the feature from the Organizer Dashboard (“Settings” > “Krosmaga”), you will be able to pick your gods when registering to a tournament:

Next, you will be asked to ban one (or more) of your opponent’s Gods through the “Ban” menu of every match you have to play.
The process is similar to what you might have experienced with Hearthstone, but the whole Pick&Ban feature got revamped for the occasion, and is now even more user-friendly!

And as per usual, the process is entirely doable from our Mobile App!

A look back on 2017

2017 has been a huge year for Toornament, which underwent its biggest transformation ever with the release of the V.2.
The first half of the year was entirely dedicated to bringing those sweet new features to you, while the rest was about keeping the flow of novelties and improvements coming your way. And now is the time to stop for a minute, and gaze upon what 2017 brought along!

Toornament V.2


The biggest evolution Toornament has ever known basically revamped the whole website, especially on the organizer’s side, with some major points:

The Match Lobby


Participants like to talk, would it be to exchange information about an upcoming match, or to gloat after a win. Whatever the reason, we released one of the features our users most requested: the Match Lobby.

Support V.2



Because having a great platform comes with providing great support, we created a true Knowledge Base and opened up new support channels to make sure everyone could get the answers they were looking for.

Participant Interface



To further improve the quality of life of our users, we merged the public tournament pages with the Participant Dashboard in a new Participant Interface. This was only possible thanks to the changes initiated with the V.2 release, that has proven being an invaluable improvement (because it opens up so many other possibilities you’ve only seen a glimpse of!).

Registration Multi-Selection



It is easier than ever to handle and manage your registrations, thanks to the Registration Multi-Selection, which allows you to select any number of registrations to act on them all at once!

Miscellaneous

Adding to these major changes, the year was full of lesser updates, full of optimizations and bug smashing, all aimed at making Toornament the best esports platform there is.
Among those, you may recall:

What’s in store for 2018?

For those of you who are not familiar with our Public Development Roadmap, let me tell you we plan on making 2018 even more incredible than 2017 was!
Next feature in line will be the Tournament Check-in, rolling out first thing next year!
2018 will also be the launch year for our Partner Program, aimed at rewarding our best organizers with business opportunities and premium stuff.

Oh, and by the way, i might have forgotten to mention that we are also working on a new tournament structure:

Today, we disclose our Development Roadmap

Now more than ever, your opinion matters to us, so let us know what you think!

Multi-Selection now available in the Registrations List!

Today, we release yet another feature to ease up the life of our organizers. Handling your registrations has never been this easy!
With our new Multi-Selection, you may now select several registrations to perform an action on them all at once, or filter them out to mass apply a new status (Accept all currently Pending requests for example).
And because a few images speak a thousand words, here they are:

New action buttons and icons have appeared on the List of Registrations:

They become active depending on the displayed registrations, to let you know which actions are possible on the current selection:

Here, when filtering Accepted Registrations, you may only Refuse or Reset them (as they are already Accepted, and only Pending registrations can be Deleted):

Finally, you may use the action icons at the end of the lines, or check individual registrations to change their statuses, just like you used to:

The Match Lobby is now available on the Mobile App!

As promised, you may now access the Match Lobby of all of your matches directly within the Toornament Mobile App!
The very same features are available, in a chat module designed just like the web version (why change something that works?).

As always, let us know what you think of this new feature, and having released it only means we can now work at making it even better!

Organizers and Participants, to your competitions!

Welcome the new Toornament Logo!

We are proud and excited to reveal our new brand logo!

This new logo was the logical step with all the recent changes brought to the platform since the Version 2 was released a few months back. A new system structure, a new participant interface, new API features soon, it all called for a design evolution to mark the occasion.
Plus, the idea was to have the logo circles be self-sufficient, recognizable outside the website, even without the rest of the name.

Improvements to the logo came in two main ways: proportions and width (plus color depth). The new logo is more balanced, and has an improved depiction when in small size, besides other logos or placed above vibrant colors.

For all of you users of our API, here are the new “Powered By” images that you can use on your pages:

White Version

CS:GO Advanced Statistics are back on!

For all of you, Counter Strike: Global Offensive fans, we are happy to announce that the detailed statistics are back for all tournaments using either eBot or AdminBot.

It’s entirely automatic, if you are using one or the other of the bots, after matches are played, detailed statistics will be retrieved and displayed on the public pages of the matches:

Have fun, and it’s time to leave a mark through godlike stats!

Welcome to the new Participant Interface!

In our never-ending quest to offer the best tournament platform there is, we are today releasing the new Participant Interface to further improve the users’ experience with Toornament. Participants are now able to find all needed information in a quicker and easier way, thus making the organizers’ work effortless.

The subject at hand was to make immediately available to a participant the vital information he needed to take part in the competitions he was registered in. To tackle it, our solution has been to merge the Participant Dashboard directly into the public pages of a tournament.

To attain this goal, a first important step has been to evolve the Navigation Menu once you are logged in on Toornament.com. It now features items for you to find the Tournaments you play in and your Matches, in addition to the existing ones, with some having moved to some more practical places.

But the main interest of this new interface is that all participant-related features (such as your Matches, the Match Lobby, the Match Result Report or the Pick & Ban in Hearthstone) are now directly available through the public tournament pages, without having to go to a dedicated dashboard! What’s more, the information displayed will evolve depending on your status in this tournament, whether you’re already participating in it, or awaiting registration confirmation, all information will be clearly and immediately visible:

As for you, fellow tournament organizers, you will still find all of your tournaments and settings in the Organizer Dashboard, available through the “Organize” top menu item.
And of course, all these Participant features are only available if your participants have their account linked to your tournament.

Our League of Legends Advanced Features are back!

Sorry about the wait folks, your favorite advanced features for your favorite game are now back on Toornament!
I obviously mean the Tournament Codes and Detailed Statistics!

They now work wonder again, and you can use them to ease up your life as a Tournament Organizer, especially with our new way of handling statistics after a Tournament Code match. Indeed, the URL for the match played with a Tournament Code is now automatically added to the match on Toornament, all you have to do is update the “Stats” link!

Good League of Legends tournaments to all!
