Let me explain all. First of all, I’m new about organization, just learning every day, maybe something I say is wrong, I have no idea.
I run a club on my city and want to start a league between us, but being european rank valid. This is to promote to play on the club.
Because OTB (Over the board) is difficult because available time of everyone, we want to do it digitally.
On one side, AFAIK, about valid rank, we have to upload tournament files to EGD exported from OpenGotha. This is the first important thing. Last months I thought to just use OpenGotha, create the tournament, tell players to play on OGS or their preffered game platform, and thats all. We write manually the results in opengotha, and once all rounds are finished, just upload to EGD.
BUT, yesterday I noticed a new kind of tournament here in OGS. OpenGotha (Beta). We tested, and looked perfect, but we found a little problem. When round start, games starts and players must play in that moment, and we don’t want that, because we want almost all members of our club doesn’t have excuses to play it, we want to let players schedule when they will play over a week. Then, OGS OpenGotha system don’t fits our needs at all for this league right now.
I think right now how OGS OpenGotha works looks almost perfect, just needs to be mixed in some way with Custom leagues feature (I saw this in Leago.gg, but didn’t knew how they do it, but now I see it) to be able to do what I explained.
About, “that does not want to use OGS tournament management system” is half-true. We are not against to use OGS Tournament, is more like “we can’t use OGS tournament management system because”, because we need to work with OpenGotha Files to be able to provide the tournament files to EGD.
Hope I explained better now.
