What are tournament types?

World of Vanilla currently has 4 supported tournament types: Knockout, Ladder, Round Robin + Knockout and League. As soon as tournament start time occurs, brackets are generated. You need at least 3 participants to generate brackets.

Knockout

The simplest tournament type. Winner of a match goes to the next round. Tournament is over when last pair of participants play their match.

League

As soon as tournament starts, table and match schedules will be generated. Participant will have two matches against every other participant (home and away). Win gives 3 points, Draw gives 1 points, Defeat gives no points. Once everyone finish their matches, theme will declare a winner by total earned points.

Round Robin + Knockout

This tournament type is combination of League and Knockout tournaments. First we have a league part, and once we finish it, theme generate playoff brackets in form of knockout. The number of participants in knockout phase depends on tournament participants number.

Ladder

Ladder is specific because it doesn't have end time. Tournament ends when tournament creator press STOP button. Goal of ladder is to get to the top by challenging participants above you, and defending yourself from those beneath you. You can challenge up to 2 positions above you, and get challenged by those 2 places under. If Place5 challenges Place3 and wins, they switch positions. In case Place3 wins, they stay in same positions. There are also charges for challenge and decline. Each time you challenge someone, you lose one challenge charge. Also if you decline someones challenge, you lose one decline charge. You get new set of charges every 24h, and they are not cumulative. If player doesn't have any decline charges left, but he gets challenged, if he doesn't accept the challenge in specific time period, World of Vanilla will consider that as forfeit, and he will switch places with challenger.

How can I create teams?

Creating teams

A team can be created using the Create a team button in the profile drop down menu. Each user can create any number of teams, and can be a member to any number of teams created by others.

 

 

Important! During team creation process, team admin has to select which games his/her team plays. Otherwise other teams won't be able to challenge his/her team. To do that, the team admin has to add a Games Block to the team's page. Here's how to do that:

 

Edit your games block by clicking pen icon (marked in red) and set block title and games played by team.

When creating a team, a user can select team's name, avatar and custom background. He/she will even have access to create a layout of the team's page!

How can I become a member of another team?

BECOMING A MEMBER OF ANOTHER TEAM

Every user has a possibility to become a member of another team. To do that, visit another team’s page and click the Request to join button.

Once the request is sent, the team’s admin will see your request on his team’s ‘Members’ page. Team admin can then accept or refuse the request.

Can I assign team members admin role?

TEAM ADMINISTRATORS

Team admins can designate other team users for administrator role. This can be done from the team’s ‘Members’ tab.

 

Keep in mind that only one user (the original team creator) can be a Super Admin of the team. Only Super Admins can manage team’s page and settings.

How can I challenge a team?

Challenging other teams for a match!

Each team can challenge any other team (that plays the same game) for a match. To do that, a member of one team has to visit another team's page and click the Challenge *team name button. Once the challenge has been sent, it will appear in another team's Matches tab, where that team's user can either accept or refuse the challenge.

 

Once the challenge has been accepted, the match will appear in both teams' Matches tab.

Once the match expires, users of a team that took part in that match will be able to input the score for that match. The score has to be accepted by the opposing team - only then it will be displayed for everyone to see.

Can I report a match?

REPORTING / FLAGGING MATCHES

Every user can report / flag a match. This can be done by clicking the flag icon in the top-left corner of a match page.

 

Reported matches will only visible to the website administrator, in the backend.
