An idea
« on: April 01, 2012, 04:59:39 PM »
We're running a double shootout tournament today amongst University students in Quebec. A total of 90 players. Each University has 6 players representing it and points are combined.
Would it be possible to have players part of a team and combine their points.
I want to play around with the Status Updates in the next week or so. Will we ever have the option to configure what info is posted?

 IMO a good suggestion.

As an addition to this  would it be possible (on the tables tab)  to enter names with a specific colour.  Team A would be red. team b would be blue and so on.
This would be handy for team games. It would make it easier to see at a glance what teams are on what tables, and as the numbers reduce would aid in keeping team members on separate tables.

One way to do this would be to create leagues and add appropriate players to appropriate leagues.  The Stats tab could be used to sum up points for each league [team] separately.

Probably not, unless I hear a good reason for it.  The Status Updates will probably have a few options, such as whether or not to post player information.  But ultimately the idea is that the receiver will manipulate that data.  The TD sends basically everything, and the receiver discards what it doesn't care about.

Is there something missing you want included?

Interesting thought.  Do team members span multiple tournaments?  Or is this just something you'd want to do at a tournament level?

Would be at a tournament Level. Team Games are usually one off games comprised of the same players with a few changes if people cant make the game
