Start Date for Team Matches

  • 6 years ago · Quote · #1


    Currently we have Auto Start based on Number of Players. That means the match will start when required number of players (For matches with max. players defined & Autostart Yes) are joined from both sides.

    There should be an option to Auto Start the match on a particular date same as Start Date for Tournaments. If this is not set, system should set an default value (Example, Start Date + 15 Days). This will help the team admins to resolve the below issues.

    1) Auto Start -> Yes. But the opposite team is not getting the required number of players & no action from their admins.
    2)Auto Start No. Other team is not locking the team. There are matches pending for more than 2 months like this. We requested their admins to lock the team. But no action.

    Also this will help us to set up the matches for different leagues where all matches to be started at the same time.

    Start Date for tournaments does nothing, except to put the tournament at the end of the upcoming tournaments list.

    These are examples of tournaments with start dates that have passed, but have not started.

    I thought of the same too. Auto start team matches on a particular date. This will be useful especially in case of World League matches.

    These will be very much important for tournaments like World League.
