Organize an Auto Battler tournament

Updated by Geoffroy "Vomact" Piot


Want to organize a Teamfight Tactics, Dota Underlords or AutoChess tournament? Here's how to proceed, to set it up and manage everything so you have an amazing Auto Battler tournament on Toornament!

1. Pick your Auto Battler

Create a new tournament from your Organizer Dashboard, and select the Auto Battler of your choice, we will go with Teamfight Tactics for this one!
If you are new to the platform, you should take the time to read our Starter Guide on how to create your first tournament.

2. Configure your Match Format

First things first, you have to select the Match Format to be used throughout the tournament, by going to the "Settings" -> "Match" menu.
The Fixed Games format should be enough for a Battler tournament, as we do not really keep track of scores or kills in such games, just the final rank! This way, you will just have to enter the position of each player after each game, and the system will calculate their points with the scale you provided.

3. Create a FFA Stage

We recommend going with a FFA Single Elimination bracket, so you will have a bracket stage. For Teamfight Tactics, you could easily go with a structure with matches of 8 players, 2 or 4 qualified players per match, and as many entrants as you need!
An alternative would be to go with a Simple FFA Stage that will let you create matches at will or if you have a reduced number of participants.

4. Open your Registrations

Given the high number of players you can have, we suggest you open the tournament Registrations.
Don't forget that Custom Fields are here to help you gather useful information from your registrees.

5. Publish and Promote your Tournament

Unless you prefer keeping your tournament private, you have to publish it so it becomes visible to everyone both on the website and the mobile app.
You can also get tips and advices on a good promoting campaign in our Share category.

6. Validate and Place your participants

Registrees have to get validated to become participantsand be placed in the stage you created.
The placement for a Simple Stage works just like for any other stage, and is explained here.

7. Enter match results

Once a race is over, go to the "Matches" -> "Name of your stage" menu and enter the ranking of each participant, over all games if you went with a multi-games match format.

That's it, you have your AutoBattler tournament going on nicely, keep reporting the games results, and Toornament will handle the rest, ranking participants after each game!

8. BONUS: Get creative with our API

For more advanced organizers, or professional ones, we have a free and open API to help you improve your video and/or stream production or create your own management tools.
Another visual application of the API would be to use it to create infographics, just like this one for Just Dance World Cup.
