We released a new update for Toornament that adds two new structure options and a custom public page for your tournaments. We also made some improvements to the dashboard.
Pairing methods in a group stage
The first new structure option allows you to configure a group stage with a pairing method. You can choose either round robin (default value) or double round robin. In a standard round robin stage, each participant plays every other participants once. In a double round robin, each participant plays all others twice, once at home and once away.
Sometimes you want to do something more complex than just round robin or double round robin. It’s the case of the ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 1: featuring 12 teams in a league split in 3 divisions. All the teams will play each other once, and within a division the teams will play each other one additional time. With our new update you can configure specifically the pairing of a group and describe in detail each match pairing, allowing you to create a tournament like this one.
Browse the ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 1 tournament widget to see it in action:
Skip 1st round in a double elimination
The second structure option allows you to skip the first round of a double elimination bracket. This stage will directly start with participants split between the winner bracket and the loser bracket.
Custom public page and dashboard improvements
You can now create a custom public page for your tournaments to share them easily and directly without embedding the widget. You can find this page in the share section of the dashboard. You can customize this page by specifying a color and a background image.
We continue to improve the dashboard. We reworked the participants section: it will be now faster to edit all your participants.
We also extended the games managed by Toornament with:
- BlazBlue : Chrono Phantasma
- JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle
- Soulcalibur V
- Street Fighter 2
- Street Fighter 3
- The King Of Fighters XIII
- Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3
