Tournament schedule

Sign-up open and close times

Teams can join between the sign-up open and sign-up close dates/times.


Check in times

Tournament teams that sign up, may not always show up and participate in your tournament.

Check in times helps to prevent this, and ensures tournament teams are ready to play in your tournament

All players automatically receive an email when check in opens.

To check in, team captains click the "Check in" button on the tournament overview page.


Check in clear
Teams that do no check in within the check in clear time frame are removed from the tournament.

This allows other teams to sign up and fill their slot (usually 30 minutes before the signup period closes).

If a team that missed the check in clear deadline turns up before sign ups close and the tournament has free slots left, they can still sign up again to play in the tournament.

Round times


The tournament start time is the date & time of the first round.

Depending on the tournament format, you can select ASAP (As Soon As Possible). ASAP matches start as soon as the previous matches finished and have a winner.


You may decide to play all rounds on one day, or to schedule rounds for specific days and times.


Hint: Playing too long tournaments may result in teams dropping out due to players not having time to finish their last matches.
Playing tournaments on multiple days or weeks requires a well-organized team and may result in more teams dropping out during the course of the tournament.
Allowing teams to reschedule matches (see details below) will help teams find the right time for them to play.

Solo & Party join queue


The solo and party join tournament queue allows players to participate in the tournament, even if they don't have a full team to join.

This queue increases participation numbers.


Match Rescheduling

Teams can submit a proposal to change the match time to the opposing team captain.

The other team captain can accept or make a counter proposal from the tournament match room.

Allowing teams to reschedule match times helps reduce automatic wins for teams unable to play following a round schedule.
