Tournament Updates and Changes!

Jambijon: Hello Everyone! Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on the updates that are being made to our Tournaments. As most of you have noticed we've been slowly moving towards a more automated service in terms of tournaments. We first started with prizing which shortened the crediting time to a couple hours for regular tournaments rather than the old 1-2 weeks after the tournament completion. Also, we worked on automating group/bracket creation that failed for our first attempt but after working with our Tournament System devs we have worked out the kinks. Below is the changes you will see for the upcoming tournaments: Automated prizing will be faster and will credit immediately after the tournament finishes. Gold will now be split among the team depending on the amount of battles a team mate played Meaning we will have reserve players coming back and players will be awarded based on their contribution (battles played) to the team. Automating registration With this automation we are able to keep registration open until 25 minutes before the tournament starts (even on weekends) to give more time for players to sign up. Automation of grouping/bracket creation This will give us enough leeway on the complexity of the tournaments we create. This means we have more tournaments that span multiple days, multiple stages, playoffs, rounds to final stages, etc. It doesn't sound too exciting now but this allows us to do things that would normally require a whole team to accomplish and manage till now we can do it with just a couple of us here. All in all, we will be able to have more tournaments with a wider variety of formats. This is all the information I have at the moment but once I get some more updates I'll update all of you! Also, with TwitchCon around the corner, I will be out of the office for the event and will actually take some time off after that to visit my California brethren. If you run into any tournament issues, please follow the new CS format as I won't be able to respond to PMs for quite some time. 1984BigBrother will be around so the tournaments won't be left unattended. For those attending twitchcon and/or our happy hour, come say hi or have a drink with me! That's it for now! Thanks and GLHF!
