    • Managed tournaments and ladders!



      We're happy to announce the new tournament manager system!

      This forum-based system allows players to create and manage many types of tournaments: Single Elimination, Double Elimination, Race, Last Man Standing, Round Robin, Double Round Robin, and Group Play. Battle in the tournaments to get onto the season leaderboards. Or do you have what it takes to challenge the King of the Hill?

      Just click on the Competitions tab at the top of the screen to get started.

      Please note that you will need a forum account to participate in the tournaments. Be sure to read the competitions help for more info on teams, tournaments and ladders!

      Good luck everyone!

        Haha, just noticed that now all players have "tournaments joined" and "tournaments won" under their forum avatar.

        This sounds neat though. Will have to check this out.

        How do you change scores?

        I'm trying to do it in tournament competitors page and it keeps telling me that I don't have permission.

        The new tournament system is independent of the existing and upcoming digital system. It's intended for players to better organize their own tournaments, enable players to take part in organized play more easily, and also to show off the winners.

        The Elo system for the ladders is for generating the brackets.

        @GreyMouser What scores are you trying to change? You submit the score from the best of 3 match (eg 2-1) and your opponent does the same to confirm. You must be an admin to edit scores from matches that have already been submitted. Please pm me if you have any specific questions.

        @Kip thorp: Both players must be using the same version of SE for them to be able to play together. If your opponent agrees to play on mobile then that's fine. If not, you'll have to play on the web or wait for the iOS update.

        There is a lot of help for how the system works and how to use it at http://www.shadowera.com/competitions.php?do=help including youtube instructional videos.
