Misc. Tournaments

There are certain Bracket Styles, such as Matchmaking (Ladder) that require a few additional steps (setting up stations / setting the Ladder queue button, etc.) or the Elimination Rounds (FFA) for Fortnite/Apex/etc. that require you to enter certain parameters such as how many are competing in a specific round / how many will be progressing towards the next round / etc.

For Tournaments such as this, we recommend that you check out the articles below or contact us through support@smash.gg / instant messenger so that we can help you set up these brackets!
