Find a tournament

First things first, find the tournament you want to sign up to. Tournaments on TTGE are separated by Challenges which can be navigated in the menu on the left side of your screen. For example WRC will have all WRC tournaments listed.

 

The tournament page

Once you click on the tournament you want to join, you will be taken to the tournament page. 

The overview tab contains Details on the tournament as well as the Timeline, Prizes and the Quick Rules.

You will also see tabs for Participants, which lists all of the players/teams that have signed up and Rules which contains all of the rules that apply to this specific tournament.

We recommend that you always familiarize yourself with the rules before the tournament starts, this will reduce the chances of disputes and you potentially being forfeited for breaking any rules.

 

Sign up

Always make sure you are logged into your TTGE account before signing up. If the Sign-up Deadline has not been reached, a Sign-up button will be available at the top of the tournament page. Click on it to go to the Sign-up form.

For most tournaments, you will need to enter your in-game name. This is how admins and your opponents will identify you, so make sure this is up to date! Having the incorrect game account may result in a tournament forfeit.

 

For a solo tournament simply click on Sign up.

For team-based tournaments, you will need to select the team you will be signing up (if you are a member of multiple teams), then select the members that are competing by clicking on "Playing" next to their usernames. 

Certain tournaments allow for substitute players, you are allowed to use these players at any point in the tournament, but they will receive no Elo or stats for competing. Prize distribution will be up to the team captain.

 

Check in

For most tournaments, you will additionally need to Check in to confirm your entry before you are "seeded" into the tournament. This means that you have to revisit the tournament page 10-60 minutes prior to the tournament starting to verify that you will take part. You do this by simply clicking on the Check-in button at the top of the tournament page during the Check-in period. 

Should you fail to confirm your entry on time you will not be able to participate in the tournament. Better luck next time!

*For team-based tournaments, each team member must check-in for the team to become confirmed. 

 

Tournament starts

Once the tournament starts you will receive a notification. Return to the tournament page and you should see your first match listed.

*In a knockout bracket tournament, if your team receives a Bye in Round 1 of the bracket, you will need to wait until you have an opponent for your Round 2 match. 

 

Play a match

Once the tournament starts and you have your first match, it will be listed both on the tournament page and in the Activity tab. Click on the match to go to the match page.

On the match page you will see a few important things:

  • Your and your opponent's Game account. Make note of your opponents account as you will be adding them as a friend in-game later
  • The Match Date. This is the date the match was initially created with both participants present. An important rule to remember is that if either participant is not present in the game lobby within 15 minutes after this date, they are subject to forfeit.
  • Host. This is the participant that must invite the other participant in-game and host the party. It is not required that this player host, the other player can do so as well if they prefer. 
  • Chat. This will be your main method of communication with your opponent and the tournament admin.
  • Dispute. Should your opponent break a rule or enter false results, you should dispute the match via the Dispute button. This will alert an admin and disable any score entry. 

 

Participants must join each-other in-game using the Game accounts listed on the match page. Once all players are present and the game has been set up according to the tournament rules, the match may be started.

 

Finish a match, report the results

Once you have finished all games and one participant has been declared the victor - both participants must report the results on the match page. This can be done by going back to the match page and clicking on Enter Result. 

Note: The enter result button will only be visible to team captains in team-based tournaments.

Once a result has been entered, the opposing team wiill have 5 minutes to respond to the result (accept or reject) before it gets automatically accepted.


Participants will then either be eliminated from the tournament or continue to the next match. The above should get repeated until the participant gets eliminated or wins the tournament.

 

End of a tournament

Usually, stats (tournament wins, trophies, missions, etc.) will get awarded 10 minutes after a tournament is completed.
