Getting Started as a TD
Tournament Setup Center
This is to help you step by step in filling in the info for your tourney.
There is also a link to the T.D. Training Center up top to help.
Where you can make fake tourneys for practice.
*Great way to try out swiss tourneys!*
To Create a tourney go to TD Login (you should have that addy saved to your favorites) and log into TD center.
Check the tourney calendar for tourneys already made and what they are. Consider the time you want to host your tourney. Remember, generally we run our tourneys every hour. Rotating between Regs and Alts.
Click create a tourney.
Choose a format - single, double or swiss and click on submit. Make sure you are approved to host swiss and double elimination tourneys with TD Manager
Click on the day of the month you want to have your tourney on the calendar. Each of the yellow numbers represents the number of tournaments scheduled for that day already. If you want a different month then what is showing click on Select Month and Select Year on bottom of page.
Next page is the time of day you want your tourney. Remember that 12 AM is midnight. It's a long list and the PM's are at the bottom! : )
We are now at the next step of the create tourney process.
