I am having a problem when creating an online tournament. I have never created one before, and I understand how the tournaments work, but when creating a tournament I can't figure out how to specify the number of groups, group size, and number advancing. There seems to be nowhere to enter this information. So, say I want to create a tourney with 12 people, 3 groups of four, with the top two of each group advancing and the other eliminated. But there is no way to select this information! If I submit the tourney, it says, 12 players, group size 12, you will play 11 games, and 1 advance!
Any help would be appreciated. Maybe I have to be a higher premium member (I am currently gold) to do this? Thanks!
I think 12 is the maximum for your membership level. I started a larger tournament, but only after I upgraded to the highest level membership.
See if you can create a group first. I don't really know, but I have a hunch it might work.
If it's any consolation, if you get the tourney started, I'd join.
Yeah, but even with 12 people, I should be able to split it into different groups. Maybe I'll try upgrading for the day and see if I can do it. (I've noticed that virtually all TDs are diamond or platinum members, maybe there's a reason.) And yes, Sabrina, when (or if) I get the tourney started, I was going to invite you to it, along with Patrick and some other people I know!
After clicking on create a tournament this shold appear
Create a New Tournament
This must be less than 1/2 of the group size.
Now change the following
Name --as you call it
days x=how long
max per group y= 4
nunber of people in tourment z= 12
Number of people advancing --2
min and max ratings --if any
unless you try this and did not show because of basic or star member
Here is the chart on tournaments
Ok, I see, I'll have to upgrade to platinum or diamond then.
Ok, after (temorarily) upgrading to platinum, here the tournament is:
