Tournament Organizer

The Elements Council is looking to hire one or two new Tournament Organizers. The work of a Tournament Organizer (TO) can be divided into two areas: planning and hosting. For hosting, please include the GMT times at which you can be counted on to host tournaments on both Saturday and Sunday in your application! This will be essential for ensuring the best timezone coverage.  These are the main tasks:

  • Discussing and planning future tournaments with the other TOs. This includes agreeing on the designated TOs for each tourney, and letting the other TOs know if you won't be available.
  • Optimizing deck-building rules for balance, and making sure the rules are simple and accurate.
  • Tweaking of existing tournament concept ideas and creating new ideas.
  • Providing support to the community, in the form of questions via forum or chat PM, chat discussion, or in the tournament threads.
  • Resolving conflicts between participants, potentially ranging from desynchs to accusations of cheating, and maintaining a cool and level head in order to make decisions objectively.
  • Ensuring rounds are finished on time, and making executive decisions if participants run too far past a reasonable time.
  • Answering questions in chat when the tournament is in progress.
  • Communicating with present TOs in the event a ruling is needed.
  • Additionally, a TO is a Chat Moderator, and expected to carry out the duties of one.


Requirements:
  • Jr. Member or above.
  • Being active on the forum.
  • Creativity needed in coming up with different tournament ideas.
  • Knowledge of bbcode, formatting, etc.
  • Ability to communicate effectively.
  • Maturity and reliability are essential.

In addition, the following things are recommended:
  • Being able to host in the times when TOs aren't currently available.
    • Currently these times are 00:00 - 06:00 ; 18:00 - 24:00 GMT Saturday and Sunday. Being available during these times would be extremely helpful
    • Please include the times you will be available to host in your application. Failure to do so will greatly diminish the strength of your application.
  • Having PvP experience to help balancing tournament rulesets.

If you have questions regarding the work of a TO, feel free to send a PM to TheonlyrealBeef.

If you are interested, send me a PM titled "Tournament Organizer Application". Your application will be shared with the rest of the council, and we will discuss the applications. Don't forget to read about what the council looks for in an applicant if you haven't, and keep in mind that tournaments range anywhere from two to four hours, and a Tournament Organizer must be present for the majority of that time.

Applications are no longer being accepted.

Just 7 hours remaining! Make sure you get those applications in!

Congratulations to our two new Tournament Organizers, Ryli and kaempfer13!

(heh, feels a bit awkward to announce myself, I assure you that I wasn't allowed to vote though! As someone who wanted more people for this job I both pushed for us to search for new TOs and volunteered myself)
