Yesterday I went ahead and versioned up Tournament-Tracker to RC1. This was after I cleaned up the Stats pages, added the ability to add a “Free Game” with your Tournament-Tracker.NET Friends, and rudimentary support for campaigning (which I am running for our Warhammer Fantasy Build up here at Galaxy Comics).
Remember, anyone who joins now will have Comp Credit Accounts for creating Tournaments & Campaigns (and whatever is added in the future!)

Using Tournament Tracker for the Tournaments this year, we’ve figured the top 20 players for Wichita Falls’ local gaming community (and our regularly visiting Okies).
Currently Brent from Strictly Average is #1 here with his Chaos Daemons army.
Edit: I removed January’s tournament due to the actual match-ups weren’t correct (it was an import of a manually-ran game). The numbers were correct, but the people played were not. The updated results are slightly different.

The site is now open to the public for Beta. Please feel free to register and run the daylights out of it. Remember, this software is in beta, and although I think I have most of the effective bugs out of line, be sure to run your tournaments side-by-side of how you were doing it.
Feel free to use the Contact page as a feedback form.
Also note, that I’ve designed the scoring around the way that we locally run them, so if you have slightly different methods of how this is run, please feel free to elaborate and I’ll see what I can do about integrating it!

Ok a little bragging here.
Last Saturday was the first time I’ve played Craftworld Eldar since 4th edition and I placed 5th! I’m actually pretty pleased with the results, as my old, perfectionist style of playing Eldar-annoyingly enough-terrorized my opponents (enough to get one couple cussin’ how much he hates Eldar ). My last game was probably my best played game, but it was completely in vain. Brent just couldn’t fail a save the last 3 rounds (I believe he only lost 3-4 models in the last 3 rounds, and I wasn’t short on firepower). Needless to say he was worried the first 3 rounds.
A little word about Tournament-Tracker.NET: this is an online tournament tracking solution that I’ve whipped up in the last few weeks. It’s still in Alpha status, but it performed brilliantly in last week’s tournament for our Administrator. I’m not accepting new public users yet, but I’ll be happy to set up a Tournament-Administrator account if you wish to test the software.
Eventually–when it’s well out of Beta (probably 4-6 months once beta has been removed) –I’ll be charging per tournament. The good news is that at this point it’s going to be a minimal charge: US$5/tournament (which can easily be taken from entry fees). I think this is a pretty fair price for handling all the heavy lifting and keeping permanent records of your tournaments (plus all your player’s tournament stats). Just contact me if you’re interested in trying it out as a tournament-administrator.
You may keep up with the development status of the web application at the development status page.
In time (during beta) I’ll post some YouTube/Vimeo videos of how to use the software, plus put the documentation of how to run a tournament in HTML form as well, although it’s fairly self-explanatory.
