A tournament is a short-term competition with a scheduled beginning and a specific end. Players may register to play in a tournament on any Ladder for which they are registered. When the tournament begins, each player is paired up with an opponent (or more than one opponent, depending on the format of the tournament.) Tournaments can be for "LadderStats," in which case the results are reported to the Ladder on which the tournament was played. Click here to read more about tournaments on Case's Ladder!
For a complete list of tournaments for your Ladder or League, select the 'Tournament Calendar' link that is located under the tournament listing on the main page and on the left-hand side menu under the ‘Tournaments' heading. You can access the page for a specific tournament by clicking on the Tournament Director's name. Once you have selected the tournament you would like to join, the information for that tournament will be listed under the 'Tournament Info' heading.
A team tournament is any tournament in which there is more than one person on each team in a match.
The captain of the team (the first person registering) has to create and name the team. The captain will then create a team password that the other team members can use to join the correct team when registering for the tournament.
When you click the 'Register' link on a tournament page, detailed instructions will show up on the page to clarify any further questions you may have.

All tournaments are listed in Eastern U.S. Time. Check-in for the tournament will open approximately 30 minutes prior to the start time. If you have registered for the tournament prior to check-in being opened you will have to return to the tournament page to check-in.
On a tournament page you will see all of the pertinent information listed under the 'Tournament Info' heading, including the location of the tournament. If you have any additional questions or problems on the location, you should contact the Tournament Director for help.
If a tournament is listed as a 'LadderStats' tourney, as most are, it indicates that the results from the matches played in that tournament are automatically posted to the Ladder at the end of the tournament, so do not attempt to report the loss yourself manually to the Ladder.
If the standings won't load, try reloading or refreshing the page. If that doesn't work, try closing your browser and loading the tournament page again. If you're still experiencing the problem after that, try clearing your cache or cleaning out your Temporary Internet Files.
If none of the above solutions takes care of your problem, then ask the Tournament Director to let you know who your opponent is.
