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:

Clash Royale Ranking powered by Toornament

Our friends at Millenium came up with a great new use of the Toornament API by creating a whole new system to generate a Clash Royale Ranking throughout all of their tournaments.
By importing a Toornament ID into the system, it automatically isolates french players (as the Ranking is for national players only), attributes them points depending on their tournament position and the tier of the tournament, and updates their ranking accordingly.

It also accepts manual entry, but the core system is built upon automated data gathered with the Toornament API, with tournaments divided into tiers:

One more example that you can create amazing tools with our API (see the Developer Documentation), and there are many other ways Toornament can help you improve your Event Production!

Spotlight on our FIFA Organizers

FIFA is a growing esports, as can be seen from livestream audiences and community activity around competitive events, as has been noted on Toornament for a while now.
With the FIFA eWorld Cup drawing near, we wanted to put the spotlight on this community, by letting some of our most active FIFA organizers speak up.

You are an organizer, and would like us to showcase one of your upcoming tournaments? Feel free to contact us on Twitter or Facebook!

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:

Meet the Widgets

Every tournament created on Toornament.com comes with its widgets for you to use. There are currently four different ones, that all have a specific purpose.
Resizable and available in 7 languages, they can all be added with a single line of HTML code to any website, for you to easily display all information to any passer-by!

The Registration Widget

Available in Dark or Light mode, this widget is a simple button allowing you to redirect wanna-be participants to your tournament for them to register:

The Tournament Widget

This generic widget evolves as the tournament goes, to display information before it starts, latest and upcoming matches during the event, and the Winner when the tournament is over. No further action is required on your side, as it automatically updates as the status of the tournament changes.


The Stage Widget

You may choose any stage of your tournament to get displayed with this widget. Display will then depend on the type of stage selected, but it can accomodate any kind of stage!

The Schedule Widget

Use this one to display your detailed match schedule!

On your website!

As stated before, including one of our widgets on your website only requires you to add a single line of HTML, that is automatically generated under the “Share” menu, both in the Organizer Dashboard and the Public Pages of the tournament. Width and Height can be changed to accomodate the display you wish to provide to your audience, and the result is awesome:

Widget-Millenium

Meet the Toornament TV

All tournaments created on Toornament.com come with their own version of our smart TV, which is a dynamically updated display of the relevant tournament information.
It was tailor-made for offline tournaments involving multiple spots (gaming zone, stages…) and public audience.
Tournament TV is a smart, automated public display solution, designed with this key goals in mind :

  • Better understanding of the tournament(s) advancement
  • Dresses up your event with live content : photos, info strips, scores
  • Keeps the visitor informed, entertained and starving for more

It is also a great resource for livestreaming, to display information in between matches for your audience to see.

How does the Toornament TV works ? Well, it can’t get easier than this : the whole system is automated. We’ve designed a smart behaviour, setting a wide and relevant set of rules, so that the TV makes the right decisions and displays the right info at the right time.
The added value is huge : for no extra time or people in your team, your event gets much easier to understand and follow. And much prettier, too !

The TV customization menu is accessible from the “Share” menu in the Organizer Dashboard, to set your own logos, colors and overlay, as can be seen with those custom TVs from Quakecon 2017:

And here it is, in situation, with a photo taken during the event:

For more information, and all technical questions you may still have, see our Toornament TV User Guide, and don’t hesitate asking us!

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!
