Participate in your First Tournament

Updated by Geoffroy "Vomact" Piot


Welcome on Toornament fellow competitor!

If you're here, it's probably to take part in one of our numerous tournaments, so let's have a quick overview of how things are going to happen for you!

This guide is destined to first-time users. If you are using the platform on a mobile device, the whole remains true, as the website is entirely responsive, but the design will be a bit different!

First thing is obviously to create your account and log in! Once you are connected, head back to the Toornament Welcome Page, where you can click on "Browse the Tournaments" to get to the Front Page:

1. Choose your game

Toornament supports more than 200 games, so we bet you are going to find something that suits you!
Simply click on the game's title or image in the List of Games. You are going to land on the Open Tournaments currently available on the platform.

2. Choose your tournament

You then have to choose which tournament you want to participate in. Several factors are to be taken into account. The platform it is played on (for multi-platform titles), the region/server, the language used etc.

Pay close attention to the Timezone the tournament is played in! You can switch the timezone the dates and times are displayed with the clock in the header!
Toornament is a free platform, so as long as you stay on, you won't be asked for a dime. Beware of external links though.

3. Register in the tournament

Once your choice is made, you simply have to request a Registration. To do so, simply click on "Register to the tournament".
You will be prompted with the Organizer's message, and the fields you have to fill in order to register for the tournament.
When it's all filled up, "Submit your Registration"!

4. Get accepted and check your participation

The next step is for the organizer to review your registration; and you can check its status under My Tournaments/Registrations. All tournaments you have submitted registrations for will appear on this page, with their current status displayed.
Its Participations counterpart is for all the tournaments that you (have) participate(d) in!
Click on a Tournament to access it and see its details.

5. Check in!

If enabled by the Tournament Organizer, you will need to Check in before the tournament starts to confirm your presence. To do so, simply check the tournament status on the front page, and click on the Check-in button when prompted!

6. Meet your opponent, play your matches and report your results

Every single match you have to play can be accessed from its tournament pages, with an option to Report the score if the Organizer enabled this feature, and a Match Lobby to chat with your opponent.
That's also the place you will find all the information needed to contact your opponent in-game, as was asked during your own registration.
Once you have played your match, you can Report the result and score, and move onto your next match!

7. Now, win!
