We are glad to announce that we are finally done with hiding the potential of this service behind the wall of closed beta.
Everyone is now free to host and run their tournaments on match.tf.
This does not mean we have stopped working on improving the site. Yes, it is still not perfect, there are so many things we have to improve (thanks to you, everyone who participated in the closed beta and actively shared their feedback).
A brief list of site changes:
Team and roster is not the same thing. Team is a simple collection of players united under a team title. Teams can fit in an unlimited amount of players. Roster is a selection of players from one team that are signing up for a tournament. When team captain signs up for a competition, he draws players from the team (Player Pool) and places them into a roster. Rosters are limited to whatever tournament settings say. Why is it so complicated you may ask? It's actually simple and flexible at the same time. Have a large company of players who play sixies, prolander and highlander? Form a big team and participate in various tournaments under the same team title.
