Are you interested in organizing a tournament or have participated in one, and now you wish to move forward and create one of your own, but you aren't sure exactly how to create a tournament? Don't worry; this guide will give you step-by-step information on what needs to be done when creating a tournament.
A tournament is a competition between people with multiple eliminations, and the match begins with play-offs between candidates; the winner advances to the next round while losers are eliminated. This continues until one player is left who is titled the champion of the tournament.
Now let's have a look at the tournament setup required for a successful event:
1. Create A Tournament:
This is the first step; you need to decide what you're going to name the tournament and which game is it going to focus on? If it is going to be an online or on-field play-off. Are you going to broadcast it? If yes, you would need to promote your event for a better turnout.
You would need to register participants in your tournament. For that, you can put up a registration form. After registering candidates, you can manually arrange them or randomly put them in order; this way, you get to decide who will be competing with each other.
The next step in tournament setup is deciding what is going to be the format of the tournament. Is it going to be single elimination, double elimination, or round-robin? You can also decide how the participants are going to proceed through viewers' votes or real game scores.
The number of rounds actually depends on the number of participants. For example,there are going to be two rounds if there are four participants and three if there are eight participants. If there are going to be multiple rounds, you can form a series as well. Series of matches will help candidates to participate in many games.
You can decide either the participants are going to team up or play individually. You can do this by yourself or let the participants choose which team they are going to pair up with.
Depending on the type of format, winners of a play-off can advance to the next round depending on their scores, or the viewers can determine who will proceed by voting. Viewers can also participate by predicting the result of a match and earn points by doing so.
You can make the tournament even more interesting by introducing prize distribution. You can distribute prizes among participants or reward winners of the play-off, or keep a grand prize for the tournament's winner. In addition, you can run a lucky draw for all the participants or even viewers.
