MY TEAM / CLAN HAS A WEBSITE ALREADY. WHY DO I NEED A MINI SITE?

Two reasons for having a mini-site:

  1. To participate in matches and tournaments: To issue a challenge to another team using Star Wars Gaming Network’s match and/or tournament system you need to have your team set up and your roster populated.
  2. Another way to promote your team: Star Wars Gaming Netword gives you the ability to create your own team’s minisite for free. It provides you with additional visibility on your team and your members. Plus: You get your own private forum for free!

Yes – there are free!

Limitations : Like any website, Star Wars Gaming Network has limitations in terms of storage and bandwidth. While currently the site is nowhere close to its limits, the intent of having a clan / team site is to make sure that it is used and the team is active in Star Wars Gaming Network. If the team remains inactive for a long time, we will contact you and work with you to determine whether you still need it.

TOURNAMENT SETUP

READ THIS before getting started

Some things to keep in mind before setting up your first tournament:

1. Give ample time for teams to sign up: Unless you have everyone lined up and ready to sign up, set the tournament start time a week ahead (or more) from the current date. This will enable everyone to sign up and the teams to be ready.

2. You can edit a live tournament before it starts / you CAN’T edit it past its start date. If you don’t have enough teams or not everyone is signed up, then edit the tournament’s start date to give more time to the teams.

3. Set match frequency to EVERY 15 MINS: All match dates are auto-generated and that can be difficult when trying to align everyone’s schedule. Having them set to EVERY 15 MINS allows you to schedule your times and adjust them accordingly (vs. having match frequency set to monthly). You DO NOT get penalized if you play a match past its originally scheduled time. If you schedule them daily, monthly or more YOU WON’T be able to submit scores until the autogenerated time.
