Unify your Community Organizers

Updated by Geoffroy "Vomact" Piot


More and more eSport communities run tournaments around their favorite games. Whether you’re an official community manager or a community lead member, you should try to federate all these initiatives and harmonize some aspects like rules and links.

Here are the most important points you should keep in mind:

  1. Formats
    The advice seems so logical we shouldn’t even bring it up. But it proves to be more tricky than it sounds. When community organizers start their own tournament, they may face some unique constraints: number of participants, online / offline, schedules etc.
    There are manyreasons to modify a tournament structure. If possible, require everyone to stick with the reference rules. If modifications can’t be avoid, try to make the alterations as light as possible on minor points, so that the participants do not complaint that different rules change the game (no pun intended).
  2. Visuals
    When different events and organizers band together to create a whole eSport league around a game, it’s important to adopt a common banner. The sheer number of gaming tournaments can be overwhelming, if not confusing for the participants and the audience.
    Alway keep in mind that a good logo and recognizable visual assets will greatly help the global initiative.
  3. Sharing
    We said it before and we’ll say it again (and again): fill all the information you can for all the tournaments and share them. A cluster of events leads to a large amount of information.
    Be sure that your organizers always share all the results, scores, links and participants on dedicated websites and social networks (theirs, yours). Guess what, our widget are the perfect tools for the task. Each tournament brings visibility to the whole project, make sure they fill this function the best way they can.

How did we do?
