How Webedia uses Toornament to manage the French LoL official leagues

Webedia Relies on Toornament for Organizing the French Leagues of League of Legends

For the past 5 years, the French division of Webedia has been utilizing Toornament and its competition management tool to successfully organize the renowned French Leagues of League of Legends. Additionally, it has integrated the Toornament API to automatically update and display results on the official websites.

Over the course of these 5 years, Webedia has successfully organized 10 seasons of the French League of Legends Division 1, attracting a record-breaking audience in Europe and featuring renowned teams such as Karmine Corp, Team Vitality, LDLC, and BDS. All the results of these competitions have been consolidated on the official website, which offers league news, VODs, and partnerships.

The Solution for Diverse Tournament Formats

The adaptability of Toornament proved to be invaluable for Webedia, allowing them to meet the evolving format requirements over the seasons. While the regular league format remained unchanged, the playoffs phase underwent multiple changes. It transitioned from a Gauntlet format to a single or double elimination bracket, with teams entering the competition at different times based on their ranking in the regular season.

The advanced options within Toornament leagues also give organizers the ability to manually define the order of matches and tournament days. This enables Webedia to create their own match schedule tailored to their specific needs, whether it’s for storytelling, viewer engagement, or the organization of offline events like the LFL Days.
