WarCraft II Player Hosted Tournaments (Challonge.com)
« on: April 02, 2015, 12:47:03 AM »
http://war2.challonge.com/

I have created an "Organization" for WarCraft II on Challonge.com for player hosted tournaments.  In order to join the WarCraft II organization and host tournaments on Challenge.com, please sign up for Challonge.com and reply or PM me with your username. 

Any chance a link could be added under the Tournaments section on the website?  I really recommend using this as a replacement for turnier.bozeman.de as well.  It's also possible to embed the brackets on a website.

Cool, that plus the challonge plugin for WordPress could be cool. I'll have to take a look at it to see how it works & what the best way to embed in the site will be.

What features does this have that makes it superior to the turnier thing?

Reasons Challonge.com would be a better alternative:

1. More attractive.
2. Players will be able to host their own tournaments.
3. Players can vote on open matches and make bracket predictions.
4. Game screenshots can be uploaded to the bracket.
5. Players have the option to change their display name for the tournaments to reflect the username that they use on the server.  For example, my account name is "RitTheMonkey" but when I sign up for a tournament I can use "spirit".  Most of the names at turnier.bozeman.de have been created by tournament hosts and the players are now unable to claim their names on there.  Players can be added manually without having to sign up on Challonge also.
6. Teams can be created and have their own Challonge page.

Is that possible to attach it to war2.ru as a subdomain as turnier.war2.ru or w/e?

Would be great to make some cross-links between challonge and war2.ru, like common auth, touney winners in war2.ru server or w/e.
Not a high-priority task, but looks great i think.

There already are wordpress plugins that do the same thing and you don't need to rely on any 3rd party sites

Indeed.  We're currently taking a look at it.

The WarCraft II Challonge page has been updated with a link to server.war2.ru and a link to a new form to request permissions to host tournaments for WarCraft II.  I figured this would be easier than having to PM or email me. 

Here is a link to the form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1zs9JfvucHdBZxa-mDdY2etB3jnDpkri_rea1lcP8vVc/viewform
