We released a new update for Toornament. This update adds an expected tournament structure: Double Elimination.
If you are not aware of this structure, Wikipedia gives the definition:
A double-elimination tournament is a type of elimination tournament competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament’s championship upon having lost two games or matches. It stands in contrast to a single-elimination tournament, in which only one defeat results in elimination. A double-elimination tournament breaks the competitors into two sets of brackets, the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket.

We also added the possibility to create a tournament with two group stages then a bracket. You are now able to create tournaments with the following structures:
- Single elimination
- Groups + Single elimination
- Groups + Groups + Single elimination
- Double elimination
- Groups + Double elimination
- Groups + Groups + Double elimination
This update also adds an import feature for your participants. You can now add all of your participants at once, by copying your participants list.
We extended the games managed by Toornament with:
- World of Tanks
- Team Fortress 2
- Street Fighter IV
- Tekken Tag Tournament 2
- Guild Wars 2
