List of tournaments

You can see the list of the previous and current tournaments on the tournaments website. To play or create a tournament one needs to register to the Toornament website.

Create your tournament

Please don't create "test" tournaments. If you create a tournament, you should commit yourself to organizing it until the end. It takes time and rigor to do it properly, you will often deal with inactive participants, fake registrations, etc. Please make the rules as clear as possible before accepting registrations. In any case, please join the #tournaments channel on Discord (http://discord.gladiabots.com) to get help from other organizers and recruit participants.

Follow Toornament's instructions to create a new tournament.

FAQ

Why can't I see my tournament in the game's tournament list (https://www.toornament.com/fr/games/gladiabots)?

For a running tournament to appear in the "Ongoing" tab, it needs to have an end date set in the future.
