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 Consequently, the Toornament Mobile App will be withdrawn from the stores in the upcoming weeks.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!

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!
From now on, participants are able to see, and edit, their registration information after they have submitted it. To access it, a player (or any player from a registered team), has a new “My Registration” item in the Tournament Navigation:

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!

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!

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!

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.

tooltip

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:

new dashboard

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!
