New update: Double Elimination available

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:

  • Titanfall
  • World of Tanks
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Street Fighter IV
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Minecraft
  • Guild Wars 2
  • Dofus

Games implementation

Each video game has its own characteristics and rules when it is used for a tournament. Toornament addresses this issue as each game is developed and added independently of another. Games can have their own settings to enter regarding a match, round, score and even participant.

As an example, on Duel of Champions, Toornament allows organizer to select the “Faction” and “Heroes” used for a match by each player.

The adaptation possibilities of Toornament doesn’t concern only the information sized by the organizer, but also how it is presented publicly.  Starcraft 2 illustrates this possibility as organizer can enter for each participant the race used during a tournament. Then the race is displayed in tournament embed like below for the WCS Global Finals 2013 bracket.

We will continue to add new games according to communities need and feedback.
