Tournament Ladder

Post by Sue_UK on March 17th 2012, 1:37 pm

Hi

I used to be a member of a forum created by vbulletin. It had a built in ladder tournament where all members of the forum could join the ladder then challenge each other to a game of scrabble. At the end of the game players would go to the ladder and submit their scores. The ladder would then automatically update their stats/ ranking etc. Does forumotion have this feature too? Below is an in depth description of the ladder feature provided by vbulletin so people can perhaps understand more what I mean, Thanks in advance.
Tournament Description:
Users or teams can join tournaments. Once full the tournament starts. In single elimination tournaments competitors progress through rounds of tournament with the number of rounds depending on the number of players in tournament which is set on tournament creation. Last Man Standing Tournaments also supported.
[Screenshot of Single Elimination Tournament (Slightly outdated)]

You could possibly do something like this manually.

Thanks Nick, we have someone working on this right now but it means it will be another site that members have to click on and register with. But it looks like that is going to be the only option for now.

Thank you for your reply Very Happy
