Development Blog #3 - 18/02/2015
We're very happy to announce our latest release went live earlier today, exactly a month after we launched our new eSports platform.
This release was primarily focused on improving the tournament system including important features such as publicly viewable match fixtures, private match comments and automatic match confirmation.
From today, all pending results will be automatically confirmed after a set period of time has passed - from the time of the original report. This means match results no longer need to be manually confirmed by the opponents or administrators.
Other match reporting improvements include the ability to signify a no shows as well as being able to provide evidence when reporting match scores. Some tournaments will make evidence submission compulsory.
A full list of updates is as follows:
Added automatic confirmation of pending results based on admin defined time frames

Added the ability for teams to communicate privately with each other and administrators from within the match screens
