Tournaments, Brackets and Ladder Matches

We have added Tournaments / Ladder Matches / Tournament Brackets to the main site. Any team in your league may participate in a tournament regardless if they are a part of a Season or Division. There are 3 types tournaments : 4 , 8 and 16 team. We will be adding more teams in the future.

If you would like to create a 12 team ladder match of playoff tournament for example, select the 16 team tournament type and the system will be smart enough to filter out the un-used teams.

To Create a Tournament
1. Goto "League Administration" after logging in
2. Click the "Tournament" tab
3. Click the "new" button
4. Enter a Tournament Name, Date, Type and Location
5. Click Save

Adding Teams to the Tournament
1. Drag a team from the team list and drop it on a blank tournament spot. You can only drop teams on the first column of the tournament.

Modify Scores in the Tournament
1. Once you have added teams to the first column, all you have to do is put your cursor on the score (should be 0 initially) and update the score.

There is no need to click the save button again as the tournament auto updates when you Add a Team or Modify a Score.

Standings : Over Time Games and Forfeits

There is now a flexible Scoring Option system when calculating Standing Points. Some sports may want 2 points per win, or 10 points per win. You can now customize this by navigating to : League Administration > General > League Options

You can also control how many points a team gets for forfeiting a game and how many points they get for an overtime win or loss.

Also we have added a couple new Standings Columns : Over Time Win (OTW), Over Time Loss (OTL) and Forfeits.

When you are in the score keeping screen, just check the
Over Time Game or Forfeit check box below.
