Tournament System Announcement/Update

Hello Community!

Some of you might have noticed that our tournament system is now accessible. This was by no means an intentional launch.

Overzealous engineers activated the tournament system to do some in house testing and didn’t think about the fact that everyone else would see it as well.

After an internal discussion, we’ve decided to leave it on. Please note that this is an unofficial launch as it’s NOT completely done, but we have decided to allow interested community members to play with it a provide feedback if they would like.

During this test period, users can keep an eye out for:
- tournament notification formatting and wording.
- tournament email formatting and wording.
- tournament user interface understanding from player/tournament admin point of view.
- any loopholes in tournament bracket implementation.
- any unexpected result after an action during the tournament.

This is not the launch we intended, but are interested to see what the community will do with it. :)

@Jace Hall is currently traveling, but will post an update later. Stay tuned.

Happy Friday and Happy Gaming!

    I think this is a good idea to have the community test out the system before officially launching it. Heads up, double in double elimination is spelled doible ;)

    I created two tournaments and they don't show up.

    Once you select a game icon to filter the tournament list, I don't see a way to remove that filter. Seems the only option to clear it is to refresh the page.

    Clicking "add new game" or "add new platform" results in multiple layers of text on top of each other.

    Also... should selecting a game automatically restrict the platforms to those the game is on? For example, looks like I could create a Super Smash Bros Ultimate tournament on the Intellivision. o_O

    It looks like the game list is disconnected from the known games on the scoreboard. So the list is very small - surely some form of back-end which ensures there's one list of games make more sense?
